Barbara Bush

Tue, 17 Apr 2018 21:14:04 EST

The death of First Lady Barbara Bush will be a sad moment for all Americans. It comes in a season in which much of the political debate is about character and "fitness," and without getting into any inapt comparisons, it's hard to imagine anyone who would suggest that the wife of the 41st president of America lacked for character or fitness for the task history handed her.We met Mrs. Bush but once, and in only a glancing way. Yet the encounter has stuck with us over the decades. It took place...

Survival of the Fittest?

Mon, 16 Apr 2018 17:08:55 EST

The most startling feature of James Comey's campaign against President Trump is that he's pursuing precisely the line of attack that failed Secretary of State Clinton. This is the business about how Mr. Trump is "morally unfit to be president." Mrs. Clinton used that line over and over again during the campaign, arguing at one point that Mr. Trump was "temperamentally unfit this is not someone who should ever have the nuclear code."How did the 50 states, which choose the president of America...

The Scooter Libby Pardon

Fri, 13 Apr 2018 17:56:34 EST

President Trump hadn't even issued his pardon of I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby when the Democratic Party foghorns started suggesting he was doing it for reasons they see as nefarious. "This is the President's way of sending a message to those implicated in the Russia investigation: You have my back and I'll have yours," the Washington Post quoted Congressman Adam Schiff tweeting. To Mr. Schiff we commend 74 Federalist by Alexander Hamilton.For it turns out that the Founders wrestled with the problem...

What Paul Ryan Personifies

Wed, 11 Apr 2018 20:10:23 EST

Speaker Ryan's decision to leave Congress after his current term is a sad moment for the Sun. It will be interpreted by the Democrats as a signal that the Republicans are to be swept from the majority. The Speaker, whose father died when his son was 16, insists he merely wants to spend time with his own children while they are still teenagers. In any event, we have admired Mr. Ryan as a solon of substance and, on occasion, almost iridescent integrity.

Mr. Dooley Had It Backwards

Mon, 9 Apr 2018 12:20:59 EST

What would Mr. Dooley make of the latest alarum from the New York Times about how America's state courts are under "partisan attack"? Mr. Dooley is the fictional bartender who famously proclaimed that "the Supreme Court follows the election returns."The Times has been set off by what is happening in Wisconsin, Kansas, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania. Those are among the states where voters are so upset with judicial decisions that they're taking to politics to curb the courts.Across the...

Larry Kudlow's War

Thu, 5 Apr 2018 16:51:40 EST

It looks to us like Lawrence Kudlow is off to a good start as President Trump's new director of the National Economic Council just in the nick of time. The markets are on edge because President Trump has started to impose on Communist China, and some of our other adversaries, the tariffs that as candidate he'd promised the voters he'd use. Standing in front of the White House yesterday Mr. Kudlow went on Fox Business Network to try to calm the waters.

The Lenore Skenazy Law

Thu, 29 Mar 2018 07:05:41 EST

Now that Utah has just become the first state in the nation to pass a law protecting "free-range parents," please indulge us while we salute our erstwhile columnist Lenore Skenazy. They say that lightning doesn't strike the same newspaper twice, but her column about letting her nine-year-old son ride the subway alone which led to the new law in Utah may well be (we're speculating) the second most widely reprinted piece of journalism in history.The first almost certainly was The New York...

The Relic of Justice Stevens

Tue, 27 Mar 2018 21:54:53 EST

The Wall Street Journal certainly made short work of Justice John Paul Stevens' call for repeal of the Second Amendment. The justice, who retired from the Supreme Court in 2010, issued his latest opinion in the New York Times. He called the concerns that animated the Founders to vouchsafe the right to keep and bear arms a "relic of the 18th century."Why the Justice ever swore to support such a relic is beyond us. He himself, after all, is a relic of the 20th Century. The New York Times and the...

Taylor Force Becomes Law

Fri, 23 Mar 2018 20:43:18 EST

The passage into law today of the Taylor Force Act represents a particle of bipartisan good news amid an omnibus spending bill that is, as President Trump marked today, riddled with pork. It represents a first step toward calling the Palestinian authorities to account for paying their people to kill Jews and others and using American money to do so.Sad to say, though, the memory of the magnificent American for whom this law is named deserves better than what the Congress gave him today...

Good Man With a Gun Brings School Attack To a Halt in Maryland

Tue, 20 Mar 2018 13:36:25 EST

It may be too early to say exactly what happened at Great Mills High School in Maryland, where a gunman this morning wounded two students. It's not too soon, though, to wonder whether this will emerge as a vindication of the National Rifle Association's Wayne LaPierre, who coined the formulation that "the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy with a gun."The early report, which we read in USA Today, is that the attacking student who opened fire at the high school in southern...

Donald J. Reagan Fitzgerald Kudlow

Wed, 14 Mar 2018 18:21:50 EST

Congratulations are in order for President Trump and Lawrence Kudlow. The White House confirmed this afternoon that our columnist it's the least of his laurels has been tapped to become the new head of the National Economic Council. It's a brilliant choice, not least because it will help the administration knit together the best of both the Republican and Democratic Party traditions in our political policy-making. Which is why we sometimes call the economist Donald J. Reagan Fitzgerald...

Does President Trump Know What His State Department Is Up To at Supreme Court?

Wed, 14 Mar 2018 16:36:41 EST

Does President Trump know what his State Department is up to at the Supreme Court? It strikes us that his new secretary of state nominee might want to alert the president to get on top of the situation. That's because in a case the Nine are deciding whether to hear, the State Department just signed a brief that puts the Trump administration on the side of the PLO and against American victims of terror.We understand that Mike Pompeo is going to have a lot on his plate, what with Kim Jong Un...

The Promise of Pompeo

Tue, 13 Mar 2018 15:44:52 EST

President Trump's decision to promote Mike Pompeo to secretary of state is a huge step in the right direction. It means that, if Mr. Pompeo is confirmed, the administration will have in the top foreign policy job an officer who was first in his class at West Point, served as an officer of armor in Europe, soared at law school, mastered politics in Congress, has run the Central Intelligence Agency and who agrees with the president.What a contrast with Secretary Tillerson. The ex-chairman of...

Trump's Korea Summit

Fri, 9 Mar 2018 08:09:59 EST

President Trump's plan to meet Kim Jong Un has already had one effect it has flipped the New York Times. Only a few months ago the Times was complaining that Mr. Trump had threatened at the United Nations to destroy totally North Korea, while offering "hardly a hint of compromise or interest in negotiations." Now the Gray Lady is rushing out an editorial saying that for once, Mr. Trump is doing the right thing, though of the editorial is devoted to sneering at the president.The Times' star...

Security for North Korea?

Tue, 6 Mar 2018 14:30:36 EST

The big news from Korea is that the communists are prepared to give up nuclear weapons "if the military threat to the North" were "eliminated and its security guaranteed." The quotes are from a statement of South Korea's president, Moon Jae-in, following meetings between the two sides. The Times calls it the first time North Korea's Kim Jong Un has been "willing to discuss giving up nuclear weapons in return for security guarantees from the United States."Mr. Kim's father, of course, is another...

Trump's Gun Advantage

Thu, 1 Mar 2018 07:56:21 EST

President Trump's meeting at the White House on the question of guns centered on one-sided measures from the gun-control faction. It focused on improving background checks and enabling authorities to seize guns from disturbed persons, like, say, the deranged youngster who committed the Parkland massacre and who, all sides agree, should never have been in possession of deadly weapons. Disarming those who shouldn't be armed, though, is only one side of the reforms needed in our gun laws in America.

The Missing Corporation

Tue, 27 Feb 2018 10:08:18 EST

It's fascinating to read the lingo the Left is using in respect of the big union dues case heard in the Supreme Court yesterday. There was a marvelous glimpse of it in the New York Times, which greeted the hearing with a headline on its homepage that read: "Striking a Blow for the Big Guy." Below it was this warning: "If the Supreme Court rules against unions in Janus v. Afscme, it will be devastating for working people and a victory for corporations."The piece the Times headlines is by a union...

Trump's CPAC Poll

Fri, 23 Feb 2018 16:57:17 EST

President Trump turned his speech this morning at the Conservative Political Action Conference into a remarkable moment on guns. It came as he was warning about complacence between now and election in November. Were Democrats to gain control of the legislature, he warned, they would repeal the tax cuts, "put judges in that you wouldn't believe," and "take away your Second Amendment which we will never allow to happen." So robust was the applause at the President's vow to protect the Second Amendment that Mr. Trump stopped his remarks and announced an impromptu poll of the audience.

Jerrold Nadler's War

Sun, 18 Feb 2018 21:52:57 EST

Call it Jerrold Nadler's war. The congressman who would lead the impeachment of President Trump if the Democrats gain control of the House in November is likening Russia's interference with the American election to Pearl Harbor. He reckons the indictments that were handed up Friday against 13 Russians are "absolute proof" that we were attacked. "Imagine if FDR had denied that the Japanese attacked us at Pearl Harbor and didn't react," the solon said. "That's the equivalent."

All Glory Is Fleeting

Sun, 18 Feb 2018 17:02:26 EST

One thing about Glory is that she does not like to be taken for granted. Which she has rarely made so clear as she did Friday at Pyeongchang during the Women's Super G. That's the race where NBC declared the agile Austrian Anna Veith winner of the gold, with 25 racers yet to run.Glory didn't like that. No doubt she had been on high alert, because the No. 1 bib was being worn by America's high-spirited heroine Lindsey Vonn, for whom we don't mind saying that we were rooting. Vonn stumbled low on...
