The Uber Imperative

The Uber “ride-sharing” service—basically a way more convenient taxi-hailing system—just won a big battle in New York City, forcing Mayor Bill de Blasio to back down from a plan to restrict it because he doesn’t like the fact that people might actually be driving cars around Manhattan. But the company has also lost a few […]

The Stupidest Iraq War Question

The mainstream media’s latest brainwave is to ask GOP candidates whether they would have supported the 2003 invasion of Iraq “if you had known what we know now.” This is appallingly stupid on five different levels. 1. It’s a gimme. It amounts to saying, “Please, senator, let me give you an opportunity to disavow a […]

The Democrat Who Could Win (But Won’t)

It turns out that while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, the Clinton Foundation collected piles of cash (plus $500,000 in speaking fees for Bill Clinton) from Russian companies associated with an attempt by Putin cronies to gain control of a major North American uranium miner—for which they needed permission from Secretary Clinton’s State Department.

The Humble Mrs. Clinton and the Hawkish Dr. Paul

Hillary Clinton has started her campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination. You didn’t notice? That’s no coincidence. It has been the softest of soft launches.

Searching for George Washington

With Ted Cruz’s announcement that he is running for president, the 2016 race has began. Yeah, I know. You probably weren’t ready yet. But here it is, you can’t escape it, and you might as start taking a look at the likely candidates now. But before we examine the individual candidates one-by-one, it’s important that […]

The Paradox of Power

Over the weekend, a New York Post headline blared that the Obama administration was responsible for leaking news about Hillary Clinton’s secretive e-mail practices. It’s one of those stories that you really, really want to be true. How much fun would it be if there were a blue-on-blue feud between the Obama and Clinton establishments? […]

Why Chicago Should Terrify Hillaryland

Last week, the mayoral election in Chicago produced a shocking result when incumbent Rahm Emanuel—Barack Obama’s former chief of staff—failed to get the 51% of the vote needed to avoid a run-off. Emanuel should be worried, but you know who should really be terrified? Hillary Clinton and her acolytes. This election result is a warning […]

Peak Leftism

A recent study that has been making the rounds argues that “academic psychology once had considerable political diversity, but has lost nearly all of it in the last 50 years.” The paper examines historical data and concludes that party and ideological affiliation in university psychology departments used to be split close to 50-50. By the […]

What to Look for in 2015

We’ve already counted down the top stories of 2014. But what can we say about what’s likely to happen in the new year? What are the big stories to look for in 2015? As the old saying goes, predictions are hard, especially about the future. The biggest stories are usually the things we can’t predict. […]
