Victor Davis Hanson: Mueller at the Crossroads

 . .  By Victor Davis Hanson Mueller at the Crossroads Robert Mueller was appointed special counsel in May 2017 in reaction to a media still gripped by near hysteria over the inexplicable defeat of Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election. For nearly a year before Mueller’s appointment, leaks had spread about collusion between Russia and […]

Donald Trump, Tragic Hero

Donald Trump, Tragic Hero

  By Victor Davis Hanson | National Review His very flaws may be his strengths The very idea that Donald Trump could, even in a perverse way, be heroic may appall half the country.

The Limits of American Patience

The Limits of American Patience

  By Victor Davis Hanson | American Greatness Not being willing any longer to be manipulated is not succumbing to isolationism.

Washington’s Fantasies Are Not People’s Reality

The Paradoxes of the Mueller Investigation

The Paradoxes of the Mueller Investigation

By Victor Davis Hanson // National Review They are numerous, and none of them are good news for President Trump’s opponents. Special Counsel Robert Mueller has indicted 13 Russian nationals for allegedly conspiring to sow confusion in the 2016 presidential election.

Understanding the California Mind

Understanding the California Mind

By Victor Davis Hanson // American Greatness Nancy Pelosi gave a marathon speech on illegal immigration the other day.
