The Endless Ironies of Donald J. Trump

The Endless Ironies of Donald J. Trump

  By Victor Davis Hanson, June 16, 2017 Pandemonium can be a revivifying purgative. Here are the ironies of Donald Trump as president. 1) For the Left (both Political and Media) The Left was mostly untroubled for eight years about the often unconstitutional abuses of Barack Obama — given that they saw their shared noble […]

Mr. Nunes Went to Washington

Mr. Nunes Went to Washington

By Victor Davis Hanson, June 8   Devin Nunes is subpoenaing former Obama administration officials who may have played a role in inappropriate monitoring of the Trump transition team. Representative Devin Nunes (R., Calif.), the now-controversial chair of the House Intelligence Committee, is a bit different from what Washington expects in its politicians.   He […]

The Fusion Party

The Fusion Party

By Victor Davis Hanson, May 30, 2017 The Democrats are following the lead of the progressive media — together, they now form the anti-Trump brigade.   Is there a Democratic-party alternative to President Trump’s tax plan?   Is there a Democratic congressional proposal to stop the hemorrhaging and impending implosion of Obamacare?   Do Democrats […]

The Obamas and the Clinton Road to Perdition

The Obamas and the Clinton Road to Perdition

  By Victor Davis Hanson, May 30, 2017   Hillary and Bill Clinton were a proud, progressive power couple who came into big-time state politics on promises of promoting “fairness” and “equality.” It did not matter much that very little in their previous personal lives had matched such elevated rhetoric with concrete action. And so […]

Regime Change by Any Other Name?

Regime Change by Any Other Name?

By Victor Davis Hanson, May 22, 2017   Truth or consequences? Obama skated for far worse misdeeds. Election machines in three states were not hacked to give Donald Trump the election. There was never a serious post-election movement of electors to defy their constitutional duties and vote for Hillary Clinton. Nor, once Trump was elected, […]

Comey’s Overdue Departure

Comey’s Overdue Departure

By Victor Davis Hanson   The Corner The one and only.   If a FBI director is doing his job, we probably should neither see nor hear of him much on television.   The FBI director by his very office holds enormous power. And like the IRS director, by definition he or she must show […]

Potemkin Universities

Potemkin Universities

by Victor Davis Hanson// May 4, 2017   Behind the facades, universities have broken faith with a once-noble legacy of free inquiry. College campuses still appear superficially to be quiet, well-landscaped refuges from the bustle of real life. But increasingly, their spires, quads, and ivy-covered walls are facades. They are now no more about free […]

Trump’s Cultural Optics

Trump’s Cultural Optics

  By Victor Davis Hanson// May 1, 2017 Every movement president is soon accused of selling out to the establishment and drowning in Washington’s permanent and deep swamp.“Let Reagan be Reagan” was an early lamentation of conservatives, fearing their godhead was being watered down by Jim Baker and diluted by George H.W. Bush centrists. Bill […]

Nukes + Nuttiness = Neanderthal Deterrence

Nukes + Nuttiness = Neanderthal Deterrence

by Victor Davis Hanson// April 25, 2017   Acting crazy has worked for rogue regimes, but Western appeasement is not a long-term solution.   How can an otherwise failed dictatorship best suppress internal dissent while winning international attention, influence — and money?   Apparently, it must openly seek nuclear weapons.   Second, the nut state […]

The Civic Cost of Illegal Immigration

The Civic Cost of Illegal Immigration

By Victor Davis Hanson, March 28, 2017 In the abstract, open-borders advocates argue that in a globalized culture, borders are becoming reactionary and artificial constructs. They should not interrupt more natural ebbs and flows of migrant populations. More concretely, an array of vested interests sees advantage in dismantling the border: employers in hospitality, construction, food […]
