There is no indication that Mitch McConnell and his Republican majority in the Senate are going to let the impeachment trial turn into a wide-ranging free-for-all.

Democrats desperately want to try to rescue their woefully inadequate impeachment case by locating evidence outside the record on which impeachment was based. At the same...

Rachel Maddow gets my nod as the Worst Media Person for 2016-2019. She deserves that title not because she’s anti-Trump deranged — so are most of the hosts and guests on MSNBC and CNN, and large numbers of reporters and opinion-makers at major newspapers.

And Maddow’s not the worst at MSNBC —...

Unless Kim Jung Un launches a balllistic missile or does something else dramatic today, it’s likely to be a slow news day.

So use this post to wish each other well, argue, or post things of interest in the comments. As long as you keep it clean, there is nothing...

Boris Johnson’s sweeping win in the British elections (via his Conservative Party) was an enormous body blow not just to the socialists, but to the anti-Israel movement.

Their hopes and dreams of destroying Israel rested on wrestling control of a major western democracy, and Britain was their best shot.

Whereas virtually every leading Democrat candidate was trouncing Trump in the polls, the gap has narrowed, disappeared, or moved in Trump’s favor. A USA Today/Suffolk University poll found Trump beating them all:

A year ago almost to the day, we reported that a Texas federal judge (1) held that the Obamacare individual mandate was unconstitutional after Congress repealed the mandate tax (which was the justification for the Supreme Court upholding the mandate in 2012), and (2) the mandate was not severable from the...

I appeared on Tucker Carlson Tonight on December 17, 2019, to talk about Elizabeth Warren’s legal practice, while also a professor at Harvard Law School, in which she made almost $2 million.

It’s a topic I have discussed on Tucker’s show before (here and here).

John Doe v. Oberlin College is a case we have covered for almost two years. While it doesn’t get the media coverage of Gibson’s Bakery v. Oberlin College, it’s every bit as important, addressing alleged systemic abuses at Oberlin College in its treatment of male students.

What does the massive British Conservative Party victory, which will keep Boris Johnson as Prime Minister but this time with a huge mandate to “get Brexit done,” mean for the U.S.?

There are many parallels between what drove the 2019 British election, and those driving the 2020 U.S. presidential election. First among...

The Supreme Court today agreed to hear three cases involving attempts by Democrats to subpoena Trump’s financial records. Two of the case involve House committee subpoenas and one case involves a Manhattan District Attorney grand jury subpoena.

The Court also stayed enforcement of the subpoenas pending argument and decision.
