The Method to Trump’s ‘Madness’

The Method to Trump’s ‘Madness’

By Victor Davis Hanson The Democratic Party, as it did after Hubert Humphrey’s close loss in 1968, seems still to be misdiagnosing its 2016 defeat. Democrats see too little identity politics rather than too much as their trouble, and thus are redoubling on what has been slowly shrinking the party into coastal enclaves. Promoting Black […]

Diversity

Diversity

. By Victor Davis Hanson America is experiencing a diversity and inclusion conundrum—which, in historical terms, has not necessarily been a good thing. Communities are tearing themselves apart over the statues of long-dead Confederate generals. Controversy rages over which slogan—“Black Lives Matter” or “All Lives Matter”—is truly racist. Antifa street thugs clash with white supremacists […]

What If South Korea Acted Like North Korea?

What If South Korea Acted Like North Korea?

. By Victor Davis Hanson If it threatened to destroy its neighbor — China — the neighbor would act. Think of the Korean Peninsula turned upside down. Imagine if there were a South Korean dictatorship that had been in power, as a client of the United States since 1953. Imagine also that contemporary South Korea […]

Throwing Away the Russian Card

Throwing Away the Russian Card

. By Victor Davis Hanson The love-hate relation with Putin, from the Obama-era red reset button to the current collusion hysteria, has been a disaster. “They [the North Koreans] will eat grass but will not stop their program as long as they do not feel safe.”— Vladimir Putin, Beijing, China, September 5, 2017 China has […]

From Gold to Dust….. and back again!

From Gold to Dust….. and back again!

By Karen Siegemund   Our August 20th Conference was a terrific event – we aimed to give people not only a realistic assessment of the “state of the state” of California, but also ideas for how to help turn the state back to the Golden one it had once been – and by all accounts, we did […]

Two Resistances

Two Resistances

. By Victor Davis Hanson The quiet resistance — the one without black masks and clubs — is the more revolutionary force, and it transcends race, class, and gender. After the election of Donald Trump, there arose a self-described “Resistance.” It apparently posed as a decentralized network of progressive activist groups dedicated to derailing the […]

The Silliest Generation

The Silliest Generation

  By Victor Davis Hanson Every generation, in its modesty, used to think the prior one was far better. Tom Brokaw coined “The Greatest Generation” to remind Americans of what our fathers endured during the Depression and World War II—with the implicit message that we might not have been able to do what they did. […]

AFA focuses on decline of California, what to do about it

AFA focuses on decline of California, what to do about it

By George Miller Sunday, August 20, 2017, at the AFA (American Freedom Alliance) “From Gold to Dust: The Destruction of California“ event, I watched about two dozen of the finest Conservative speakers in CA summarize the state of the state’s destruction, via segments on education, environmental extremism, hyper-regulation, illegal aliens, and corrupt/wrongheaded politics. Each segment’s description […]

Silicon Valley Billionaires Are the New Robber Barons

Silicon Valley Billionaires Are the New Robber Barons

. By Victor Davis Hanson   Progressives used to pressure U.S. corporations to cut back on outsourcing and on the tactic of building their products abroad to take advantage of inexpensive foreign workers. During the 2012 election, President Obama attacked Mitt Romney as a potential illiberal “outsourcer in chief” for investing in companies that went […]

Trump — And the Use and Abuse of Madness

Trump — And the Use and Abuse of Madness

. By Victor Davis Hanson Fiery and unpredictable rhetoric can be a powerful strategic tool, but only if it’s not habitual. Occasionally insanity, real or feigned, has its political advantages —largely because of its ancillary traits of unpredictability and an aura of immunity from appeals to reason, sobriety, and moderation. Rogues often try to appear […]
