    How Robert Conquest’s History Book Made History

  • Perception Versus Reality in GOP Debate

  • Too Many Candidates to Fit on a Stage: Democrats Then, Republicans Now

    Too Many Candidates to Fit on a Stage: Democrats Then, Republicans Now

    Why did Fox News decide to schedule two Republican presidential debates rather than one? Simple arithmetic: 90 minutes divided by 17 candidates equals 5 minutes and 29 seconds apiece. That’s scarcely enough time for the oral equivalent of a few tweets.

    Donald Trump, Supply-Sider?

  • Legal and Academic Equality Nonsense

    Legal and Academic Equality Nonsense

    A particular act or policy might not have a discriminatory intent, but that doesn’t let you off the hook. If it has a disproportionately negative impact on so-called protected classes, it is said to have a disparate impact and risks being prohibited by law. The uninformed assumption made by judges, lawyers and academics is that but for the fact of racial and sex discrimination, we all would be distributed across occupations, educational backgrounds and other socio-economic characteristics according to our percentages in the population. Such a vision is absolute nonsense. There is no evidence, anywhere, at any time, that but for the fact of discrimination, there would be proportional representation among various socio-economic characteristics. Let’s look at some disproportionalities, with an eye toward discovering the causes and then deciding what to do about them.

  • 'Vocabulary of Mutilation': A Disturbing Primer on the War on Drugs

    ‘Vocabulary of Mutilation’: A Disturbing Primer on the War on Drugs

    Don Winslow, novelist and conscientious objector to America’s longest “war,” was skeptical when he was in Washington on a recent Sunday morning. This was shortly after news broke about the escape, from one of Mexico’s “maximum security” prisons, of Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, head of the Sinaloa drug cartel.

  • Donald Trump: Still Right About Mexican Rapists

    Donald Trump: Still Right About Mexican Rapists

    There’s a cultural acceptance of child rape in Latino culture that doesn’t exist in even the most dysfunctional American ghettoes. When it comes to child rape, the whole family gets involved. (They are family-oriented!)

  • Gun Lies

    Gun Lies

    My town, New York City, enforces rigid gun laws. Police refused to assign me a gun permit. The law doesn’t even let me hold a fake gun on TV to demonstrate something.

  • The Private Sector Giveth - and Government Taketh Away

    The Private Sector Giveth – and Government Taketh Away

    It is – sadly, always – a clash of two titans. The private sector and government. There are claims made that it is – or can be – a symbiotic relationship. The free market and government – walking hand-in-hand into a brighter tomorrow.

  • Shock Videos Expose Moral Blind Spots

    Shock Videos Expose Moral Blind Spots

    It’s not that hard — and it’s a bit self satisfying — to judge moral flaws from past times. Hence, legislators from both parties recently embraced a bill to ban the naming of California public buildings after leaders of the Confederacy, given that regime protected the unquestionably evil practice of slavery. There’s no risk in condemning a government that dissolved in 1865 and was mostly headquartered 2,800 miles from Sacramento.

  • The Plot to Destroy Nixon

But both of them may yet be rescued by “The Donald,” who can turn out to be their Trump card.

  • Iran Deal Is Obama's Foreign Policy Obamacare

    Iran Deal Is Obama’s Foreign Policy Obamacare

    President Obama’s sordid Iran nuke deal is looking more and more like the foreign policy version of Obamacare. It’s duplicitous, secretive, destructive and legacy-driven, and he’s going to have to go full community organizer to get it passed.
