It was a momentous event when it happened thirty years ago: the fall of the Berlin Wall.

This Atlantic article describes how home surveillance cameras have helped catch thieves who steal packages – predominantly Amazon packages – from porches in a San Francisco neighborhood. The attitude of the author is somewhat ambiguous, but as best I can determine she seems to lean slightly more towards sympathy with the...

What is happening now to President Trump was predictable. The plans were laid in plain sight, including the use of whistleblowers to disrupt the administration.

It is instructive to look back and realize that there was plenty of advance warning of the various attempts to set up grounds for the impeachment of...

The Trump Impeachment Conundrum Democrats Don’t Want to Talk About

One thing we can safely conclude at this point is that the current impeachment push is not about the content of Trump’s phone conversation with Ukraine’s president Zelensky or the “whistleblower” report, although the Democrats and NeverTrumpers will probably continue to pretend it is, at least for a while.

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.

Is Trump Playing 3-D Chess?

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.
