If the media is looking for a symbol of ‘deviancy’ in our politics that only ‘[makes] things worse,’ they should stop looking at the press secretary and instead look in the mirror.
Conventional wisdom fueled by the media is that the White House ignored the coronavirus threat in January and February. It is absolutely false.
The point of federalism is that it keeps the tyrants little, so they can be removed from office by the people closest to them.
All of their predictions are based on the conventional wisdom and assumptions of an insulted and excluded D.C. intelligentsia, and all are wrong.
Americans generally agree that news media should be ‘objective’ and ‘report the facts.’ But there is no such thing as merely reporting ‘the facts.’
The West has forgotten its own history, Shapiro argues, and is abandoning Judeo-Christian values and natural law in favor of moral subjectivism.
The news that former Trump attorney Michael Cohen pled guilty to a process crime was enough to convince them of Trump’s guilt, despite the lack of evidence.

While the self-labeled remnant challenges conservatives to live up to a higher standard, others counter that we should leverage unified Republican government to secure policy wins.
An internecine debate about conservative support for Trump raises important questions about the role of the pundit and the purpose of debating ideas.
Jonah Goldberg’s response is more evidence of the reordering of the coalitional hierarchy of priorities within the American right.
Warring camps of employee activists at Google exemplify the dysfunction of our political climate and the rise of tribalism in American life.
