In this whole theatrical performance called “Impeach, Impeach, Impeach” that the Democrats have been playing since heir apparent Hillary Clinton went down in flames to Donald Trump, Robert Mueller’s special counsel report was the main act. It was to be the a-ha moment to unseat Trump from the White House. But it failed. Miserably.
Let us imagine that Evelyn Waugh moves permanently to Los Angeles in about 1960 and lives there, retaining all his faculties, up to the present day. Let’s say he loses his faith, leaves his wife, and becomes mesmerized instead by the power of cinema. He starts hanging out at premieres and magazine launches and the 1987 MTV Video Music Awards with Robert Downey Jr., Judd Nelson, and James Van Der Beek, partying so hard that he passes through every rehab clinic in the Northwest, where he starts...
History shows that when the working-class strength threatens the status quo, even moderate conservatives won’t balk at making common cause with fascists.
The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear the case of a Mexican family suing a U.S. Border Patrol agent who shot and killed the family's teenage son from the U.S. side of the border. The decision could set a precedent for the way foreign nationals are represented in American courts.
It's a story that will lacerate your heart.Indeed, you'll watch "When They See Us," director Ava DuVernay's new Netflix miniseries, in appalled disbelief and open-mouthed horror. That may sound like a warning. It's actually a recommendation.DuVernay tells the story of the so-called Central Park 5, four of them black, one Hispanic, who were convicted of the brutal 1989 rape and assault of a white woman jogger. It is an unsparing re-creation of an ugly time.Halting and [

Altria, Reynolds and Juul say they’re trying to do the right thing, while health groups say firms are pushing laws stuffed with loopholes.
The measles outbreak across the United States has become the largest in 25 years, less than two decades after the disease was thought to have been eliminated thanks to vaccinations and public-health efforts to protect our children. From Washington state to New York, health departments are doing their best to get people to vaccinate their children while also working to quarantine sick (mostly) children from unprotected populations. The outbreak is in no small part due to the lowering of...
Newly-released documents revealed that Chicago Police thought Jussie Smollett would be forced to admit guilt as a part of the deal he struck with prosecutors to have his charges dropped, according to WBBM-TV.
As a progressive prosecutor, I had high expectations for the 2019 legislative session. My party controlled both chambers, and I had hoped for legislation that spoke to the plight of our youth, the suffering of our victims, the balance of justice in the courts, the restoration of our communities and redemption of citizens carrying the
It shouldn't be much of a surprise that the President who did most of his campaigning traveling in his own private branded commercial airliner has plans to revamp Air Force One. And that's exactly what President Donald Trump is doing, according to Bloomberg. Trump unveiled a new paint job for Air Force One on ABC late last week - one that looks similar to the "TRUMP" branded jets he flew around commercially while campaigning.
To anyone expecting a major breakthrough at the June 28-29 Osaka G-20 meeting, Wilbur Ross has a simple message: "Don't."
Democratic candidates generally don't have much to fear from interviews on National Public Radio, but Morning Edition anchor Steve Inskeep raised our eyebrows by pushing Beto O'Rourke a bit on Friday on what people will be forced to give up under liberal climate-change policies. The liberal media often focus on the Impending Crisis, and then go light on how liberals would crack down on "bad" behaviors.
Kudos to state Sen. Leroy Comrie for coming up with a serious plan to get more black and Hispanic kids into the city’s best high schools: by adding opportunity, not undermining excellence. This is yet another blow to flailing Chancellor Richard Carranza, who’s been pushing the Legislature to do just the opposite. Everyone agrees: Something’s
When the United States entered World War I, there was an immediate need for American armed forces to expand quickly. Men were drafted, and volunteered to serve in the military. During this time in history women, for the most part, did not serve in any capacity in the armed forces. Men between the ages of 18 and 31 made up the bulk of the fighting force. In 1917, federal officials were horrified to learn that one-third of U.S. troops were infected with syphilis or gonorrhea. Of course those...
This past week there was a bewildering little discussion on Bill Maher’s Real Time where—yet, again—Maher railed mightily at the horrors of political correctness and social justice warriors, while columnist Charles M. Blow sat bewildered at what his problem was. [Transcript below from Breitbart, available on its website.]
