  • That shooting at Georgia Tech was suicide by cop

    What with all of the other rioting going on all over the country, you’re to be forgiven if you missed the latest mayhem breaking out around Georgia Tech this week. It resulted from the shooting of a student there by the name of Scout Schultz on Saturday night. Schultz reportedly “identified as neither male nor female” but based on the pictures and some of the local reporting I’m going with male because I can’t be bolloxed with writing an entire column while dancing
  • Trump at Turtle Bay: “Make the United Nations great … not again”; Live video stream added

    Donald Trump got his first official presidential look at the United Nations yesterday — and the UN got its first official look at Trump, too. He’ll speak at the General Assembly for the first time at roughly 10:30 this morning, but Trump started off a week of intense diplomacy by demanding significant reform at the UN. Their history has been mainly one of disappointment and “mismanagement,” Trump told them in his first speech at a session on reform, but the potential rema

    Television viewers may have wondered why Bill O’Reilly was on NBC’s Today show answering questions about sexual harassment allegations from Matt Lauer. The former Fox News star has a new book out today, Killing England, which gives his take on the American Revolution, but it takes a long, long time to get to that topic. Instead, Lauer gets right down to business, pressing O’Reilly on his termination from his two-decade gig, expressing considerable skepticism over O’R
  • Someone wants to “overturn” Trump’s pardon of Arpaio

    Harvard law professor Laurence Tribe has established something of a reputation for coming up with some, shall we say… unique interpretations of the Constitution when it suits his needs. This week is no exception and he’s rolled out a doozy. In an op-ed for the Washington Post, Tribe describes in detail his revulsion with Joe Arpaio and his even greater distaste for the fact that President Trump pardoned the sheriff.So what can be done about it? The standard answer in legal circles i
  • Trump: We might have a parade in Washington next July 4th to showcase our military strength

    It makes me chuckle that Macron invited him to the Bastille Day parade in France thinking that nothing would impress an ostentatious alpha male quite like some military muscle-flexing, and he was totally right. Months later POTUS is still chattering excitedly about it. Between this and his impressive handshake mindgames, Macron seems to think he has Trump all figured out. Maybe he does!
    Trump didn’t get the idea from Macron, though. Allegedly he wanted some military hardware on display dur
  • Video: The painfully bad Dan Helmer “Top Gun” ad

    To cleanse the palate. The first and most important task for a newbie congressional candidate is to get his name out there, right? Make an impression. Do something to make sure voters, most of whom don’t give a wet fart whom their party nominates, will check the box next to your name on primary day purely because they recognize it. Most U.S. elections below the presidential level, I’d bet, are won and lost not among people who follow politics every day but among those who see a candi

    CNN is reporting that the U.S. government used a FISA warrant to tap the phones of Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort starting sometime last year before the election. The wiretap continued into this year and may even have picked up conversations between Manafort and President Trump:
    Some of the intelligence collected includes communications that sparked concerns among investigators that Manafort had encouraged the Russians to help with the campaign, according to three sources f
  • Bloomberg: DoJ opens Equifax insider-trading probe

    Forget the SEC and the FTC — the Department of Justice wants to get in some licks on the Equifax scandal, and their licks could carry prison time. Bloomberg reports today that a US Attorney out of Atlanta has opened a criminal insider-trading probe involving three major figures within the company, where hackers gained access to the data for 143 million Americans. The probe raises the stakes for Equifax, and perhaps for Congress, too:

Challenging the legitimacy of the election has been her chief occupation in U.S. politics since November 8th, although until now that challenge has been framed in moral terms, not legal ones.

In my Twitter feed, I only saw two of the conservatives I follow commenting on the show so that seemed to be a fairly common practice among our tribe.The initial scoring put them in position to be one of the worst rated Emmys outings of the modern era. This led a few timid voices to meekly suggest thi

    A blow for Democrats and perhaps a lucky break for Republicans, who could use a couple in the long-shot effort to get ObamaCare repeal through the Senate.

It’s the idea that you should be free to work if you really want to, but if you can’t (or simply won’t) the government should provide you with some sort of b

Obama’s now delivering speeches to Wall Street, and pocketing his former annual salary for every appearance, Bloomberg reports, thankfully keeping his family from the precipice of poverty.

Question two: If she feels she didn’t get the respect she was due from Bernie Sanders and his supporters, couldn’t that be partly due to hard feelings over the leaks
  • Antifa and the normalization of left-wing violence

    Megan McArdle has written a piece for Bloomberg which highlights something that the media continues to gloss over. What we’re seeing on the left today, from Antifa and student protesters, is not normal but is being normalized.
    Last week the city of Berkeley allegedly spent $600,000 to prevent left-wing goons from making the city into a First Amendment-free-zone. That’s an outrageous sum just so that someone can safely speak at a college for two hours. McArdle argues we shouldn’

    Californians are crazy about banning things (particularly if they have anything to do with conservative values) but sometimes they get a bit carried away and it comes back to bite them. More than half a decade ago the Golden State fell victim to a marketing campaign from PETA and was convinced to pass a ban on foie gras because of the poor treatment of the birds involved. That was immediately challenged in court, re-filed, recycled and has been battled over back and forth since then. This month
