Trump’s Triumph at the UN

by Roger Kimball Sept. 26, 2018 President Trump’s speech at the United Nations on Tuesday (9/25) is one of the greatest political speeches ever delivered in peacetime. Maybe you are like those members of the audience seated in the General Assembly who tittered when the President began his speech noting that, “In less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country.” The bureaucrats shifting upon their glutei maximi upon the plush receptacles provided by the custodians of the United Nations may have found the President’s frank statement risible. But their...

Trump’s UN Address: America’s Policy of Principled Realism

This is the lecture world leaders deserved to hear. After the effrontery of laughing at first, then applauding when he took it in good humor, they sat there silently as Dad explained to the kids how it’s going to be.  The President’s speech is 35 minutes long, the text is 3,600 words.  It is worth reading entire, while the key quotes are in italics to quickly scan. Watching his delivery is remarkable, calmly and dispassionately explaining to leaders of almost every country in the world how to deal with the most powerful nation on earth from now on. This...

Iran’s Enemies Strike Back

The government in Tehran made its move. Now, it’s being boxed in.   by George Friedman September 26, 2018 An interesting thing happened last week. A Russian reconnaissance plane was shot down by the Syrian army, so naturally Russia blamed Israel, claiming that Israel used the plane to shield its own fighter aircraft, en route to strike Iranian positions in Syria. Interesting though that charge may be, it’s far less fascinating than Moscow’s other quibble – that the Israelis had failed to give the Russians sufficient warning that they were entering Russia-controlled airspace in Syria. This runs counter to...

We Are Living Nineteen Eighty-Four

Truth, due process, evidence, rights of the accused: All are swept aside in pursuit of the progressive agenda (i.e., “Socialist Justice”).     by Victor Davis Hanson September 25, 2018 George Orwell’s 1949 dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four is no longer fiction. We are living it right now. Google techies planned to massage Internet searches to emphasize correct thinking. A member of the so-called deep state, in an anonymous op-ed, brags that its “resistance” is undermining an elected president. The FBI, CIA, DOJ, and NSC were all weaponized in 2016 to ensure that the proper president would be elected —...

The Democrats and Democrat Media Have Destroyed the #MeToo Movement

by Alexandra DeSanctis September 25, 2018 It’s been nearly a year since Ronan Farrow torpedoed the career of Harvey Weinstein, printing in The New Yorker a series of credible accusations that the Hollywood producer had sexually abused several women. His piece touched off a firestorm that led to purges of incredibly powerful men in a variety of industries, finally forcing them to face consequences for their sexual misconduct. Yesterday (9/24), though, Farrow and his colleague Jane Mayer did a huge disservice to the Me Too movement by publishing an incredibly thin sexual-abuse allegation against Brett Kavanaugh.  Critics by the boatload...
