Safe spaces are all the rage on campuses. The safety promised is not physical safety, but emotional safety from ideas that do not fit the progressive and social justice warrior narrative.

At Vassar College, my planned lecture on “hate speech” and free speech was so *scary* to the intolerant far-left that they...

In 2009, Kirsten Gillibrand was appointed to fill the Senate seat of Hillary Clinton, upon her confirmation as Secretary of State.

Until yesterday, Gillibrand was happy to benefit from the massive Clinton fundraising and political machine. Despite the serious accusations of rape and sexual assault made by several women against Bill Clinton,...

I recently noted frustration with Democrat delay tactics for judicial nominations, including the withholding of “blue slips” to prevent confirmation proceedings to proceed, Trump judicial confirmations moving along, but not fast enough:

Every single vacant seat should be filled as quickly as possible. Some progress is not good enough. Grassley and McConnell need...

Leeann Tweeden, now a local radio news anchor in Los Angeles, has authored an article accusing Senator Al Franken of non-consensual sexual contact in 2006, during a USO tour in the Middle East. This contrasts with the accusations against candidate Roy Moore, which involve alleged conduct several decades ago.

There was a time that student government resolutions divesting from Israel were all the rage, and the center of the anti-Israel movement on campuses. We covered many such battles, most of which were defeated, though some passed.

They always were purely symbolic acts, since student governments have zero power to divest university...

Donna Brazile’s revelation that the Hillary Clinton campaign co-opted the Democratic National Committee during the primaries was fairly devastating news to those still hoping for a Hillary 2020 run. The primaries being “rigged” further distances Bernie supporters, who provide all the energy in the party, from the Democrat establishment.

The District Court in Hawaii recently granted yet another injunction against a Trump Travel Order, in that case Travel Order No. 3. In light of prior Supreme Court stays of similar injunctions, the Hawaii District Court Order was plainly ridiculous. I noted at the time:

In numerous prior posts we have followed the tortuous process of getting Trump federal judicial nominees confirmed. Democrats have thrown down every procedural delay possible, even for nominees they didn’t oppose.

What Democrats fear is that Trump will take advantage of the historic opportunity handed him to reshape the federal judiciary for a...
