“Common good capitalism” vs. the free market kind

Featured image Earlier today, I wrote about an alleged ideological division in the Democratic party between the far left and the establishment. Now, I want to consider an ideological split in the Republican party about which Eliana Johnson filed this report. That gap is related to, but not the same as, the division between hardcore Trump supporters and Republicans who would like to see the Party move on from the ex-president. It’s »

Nikki Haley’s speech

Featured image I watched three of the speeches delivered at the Republican Convention last night — those of Nikki Haley, Donald Trump Jr., and Tim Scott. Based on what I heard, I agree with my Power Line colleagues that the Republicans got off to a fine start. Haley and Scott embody the American dream and its relevance for minority group members and immigrants. They are walking proof that America doesn’t need an »

Nikki, Rex, and the General

Featured image According to the Washington Post, Nikki Haley claims in her new book that Rex Tillerson and Gen. John Kelly tried to recruit her to undermine President Trump in an effort to “save the country.” President Trump has tweeted an endorsement of Haley’s book and urged his followers to order a copy or attend her book tour. Has Trump read the book or is he relying on the “fake news Washington »

Nikki Haley, Whistleblower

Featured image Nikki Haley has a book coming out about her experiences in the Trump administration. I think it will be interesting in many ways, but what has gotten the most press so far (based on advance copies received by the Washington Post and the Associated Press, two virulently anti-Trump and anti-Republican outlets) is her conflict with former Chief of Staff John Kelly and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

Thanks for the memories, Nikki

Featured image As it turns out, Nikki Haley was one of President Trump’s most inspired appointments. Serving as the United States Ambassador to the United Nations, she has performed admirably in the administration’s great undoing of toxic Obama administration policies. As she is leaves office, the Free Beacon’s David Rutz has compiled a supercuts video with glimpses of Ambassador Haley’s greatest hits. Rutz summarizes her tenure: “For two years, she faced down »

Why We Hate the Media, Chapter 12,186 [Updated]

Featured image Did you hear the latest from Vogue magazine about what a corrupt you-know-what UN Ambassador Nikki Haley is? Here’s the headline: If there’s one very appropriate pattern among Trump administration appointees and associates, it’s their penchant for big spending. (Trump, let’s remember, has a literally gold-plated New York residence.) Nikki Haley is the latest to join the ranks of those officials who apparently prefer things that come with high price »

Another great reason to withdraw from the U.N. Human Rights Council

Featured image Earlier this week, I discussed the Trump administration’s decision to pull the U.S. out of the farcical U.N. Human Rights Council. Our stated reasons for pulling were that the Council, which includes notorious human rights abusers (e.g., China, Cuba, and Venezuela), tolerates atrocities and exhibits blatant bias against Israel. Now, it has been alleged that the U.S. withdrew at least in part because a representative of the Council wrote a »

Conclusive Proof that Michael Wolff Is a Liar

Featured image Michael Wolff’s book about the Trump White House was released to great fanfare, but quickly proved to be full of errors and outright lies. I doubt that anyone takes it seriously anymore, but in any event, this should be the last nail in its coffin: On Bill Maher’s HBO program, Wolff — author of a best-selling, fact-challenged book on the first Trump year — recently claimed he’d omitted an “incendiary” »

Lying For Money and Power

Featured image The Democrats are doing the same thing to Donald Trump that they did to Ronald Reagan–questioning his sanity, claiming he is senile and unstable, denying his fitness for office. There are two differences: the Democratic Party controls the press more monolithically today than it did durning the 1980s, and the Democrats hate Trump even more than they hated Reagan–something I never expected to see. In this crazed historical moment, Ambassador »
