Following is a way it might be possible for the far left to gain more power, particularly in the House, even if the majority of America and even the majority of Democrats do not support far left politics and are completely turned off by the current Squad.

It’s not a copout to say, “it depends on what you mean by 3-D chess.”

If you mean something so advanced and esoteric it’s the equivalent of Einstein’s Special Theory (in the political sense), I’d have to say “no.” But I don’t think that’s what it means. I find playing 3-D chess...

The NY Times’ embarrassing attempt to make Trump’s old tax returns a big story

Does anyone really care about the NY Times’ news concerning Trump’s 1985-1994 federal taxes?

I’m not even sure that the Times actually cares all that much at this point, although they must be hopeful that their publication of the information will hurt Trump.

When the international version of the NY Times decided to publish an anti-Semitic cartoon by the Portuguese cartoonist Antonio Moreira Antunes, it was just following a long-established European post-WWII tradition. Antunes has been in the anti-Semitic image business for decades, and won an award in 1983 for his appropriation of a...

If you were thinking it would be hard for Democrats to get any worse, along comes an idea like that of Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon, who thinks unrealized gains should be taxed. Wyden is no wide-eyed youngster, either. Not only is he 69 years old, but he’s the top-ranking member...

Yesterday it was all about the Mueller report and the Barr letter.

Today the news and commentary seems to be focusing more on the press itself: will the MSM ever own up to the magnitude of their mistake/lies (I very much doubt it)? How much has their coverage of Russiagate damaged their...

Victor Davis Hanson has given a fascinating interview to Isaac Chotiner of The New Yorker.

The interview is well worth reading for the thesis that Hanson, a classics professor and military historian, offers about Trump.

I don’t really know how far to the left Nancy Pelosi is, perhaps further than she lets on. But my guess is that she’s not very happy about the radical wing of the Democratic Party, the one whose members stayed seated when President Trump said in his SOTU address that the...

The title of this article by Holman Jenkins intrigued me: “Politicians Never Lied Before Trump,” and so I clicked on it. I was almost certain that the title was sarcastic—of course, politicians lie often, and have done so since time immemorial—and sure enough, the title was indeed meant as sarcasm.

There is little question that lawyers and law professors can argue on either side of this issue and make a convincing case. But here are some of the arguments Trump’s side will probably use if it comes down to that:

Last Friday, Professor Jacobson wrote a post entitled “Chief Justice Roberts is the new Swing Vote, or worse,” explaining that:

Vox‘s Matthew Yglesias believes that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez should run for president.

Hey, why not? What could possibly go wrong?

Oh, and if she’s not old enough—and, at 29, she’s not—then it’s time to “fix” the Constitution.

Rioting has been taking place recently in France, but trying to get a clear idea of what’s behind the demonstrations isn’t easy.

The first thing to say is that the riots certainly seem to be anti-Macron. But there are plenty of reasons to be anti-Macron, some emanating from the left and some...
