A summit imperiled by Rocket Man's travel tribulations

Mon, 23 Apr 2018 21:26:08 -0400

"Just getting there, as Cunard once boasted of transatlantic crossings by ship, "is half the fun." The Atlantic is still there, but ocean liners are not, and almost the only way to cross the ocean sea now is by air. That's no fun at all. Dining aboard an ocean liner ...

The Democratic terror of a miracle in North Korea

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 20:25:09 -0400

Trying to spark a new romance, or even arrange a weekend tryst, is not always easy. It's impossible with the help of spectators eager to throw things, not orange blossoms but sticks and stones with sharp edges. But that's how Washington tries to conduct diplomacy, circa 2018.

A tryst is ...

Donald Trump and James Comey's book: Still waiting for the garlic bullet

Mon, 16 Apr 2018 21:59:13 -0400

Donald Trump called James Comey a "slimeball," which is not a very presidential way to talk. But just this time we might have to forgive the president. James Comey really is a slimeball. Just about everybody says so.

The critics of his book, finally out Monday after the weekend news ...

Paul Ryan and the long goodbye

Thu, 12 Apr 2018 20:56:09 -0400

The speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives has a difficult job. He has to spend a lot of time with congressmen, after all, and the typical congressman, Republican or Democrat, is composed of two pounds of ambition, three pounds of compressed gas and eight ounces of brains, stuffed into ...

Fear, loathing and John Bolton

Mon, 09 Apr 2018 21:41:13 -0400

If John Bolton frightens the nation's enemies half as much as he frightens Chicken Little and all the Democrats at home, all the strife, evil and deceit in the world will soon be history. Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong-un will lie down with the lion and not have to worry ...

Robert Mueller, villain and breaker of hearts

Thu, 05 Apr 2018 20:59:20 -0400

Thousands of the readers of The Washington Post suffered strokes, heart attacks and an outbreak of social disease this week in the wake of its big front-page story that Robert Mueller, in hot pursuit of the president for lo! these many months, has informed Donald Trump's lawyers that the president ...

Running in hot pursuit of George Orwell

Mon, 02 Apr 2018 20:56:15 -0400

George Orwell is dead and gone, and more than a half-century has passed since he wrote "1984," but he would recognize America today. He was an Englishman (real name Eric Blair) who understood that no state is immune to human mischief.

"Every record has been destroyed or falsified," he wrote ...

Hollywood gets a few lessons in storytelling

Thu, 29 Mar 2018 20:27:08 -0400

The grassroots keep sending messages to Hollywood, but usually nobody's home. Oblivious to real lives outside the California bubble, the masters of the fanciful, the absurd and the bizarre wouldn't read the message, anyway.

But the town that tinsel made is agog, if only temporarily agog, by the triumphant return ...

All flash and no flesh: The Stormy Show

Mon, 26 Mar 2018 20:52:06 -0400

The mountain huffed and it puffed, and roared with promises of revelations that would shake the foundations of the republic. Or at least make the lights flicker. All it produced was a scrawny little mouse: Donald Trump is a vulgar womanizer, a pursuer of shady ladies with expensive lawyers and ...

The septuagenarian smackdown

Thu, 22 Mar 2018 21:29:10 -0400

This won't be "the thrilla in Manila," or the "rumble in the jungle," but "two clowns in a septuagenarian smackdown" should do more for the sweet science of boxing than anything since the two Joe Louis-Max Schmeling fights on the eve of World War II.

Joe Biden wants to take ...

A hero only to a lynch mob

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 21:00:17 -0400

Only a few days ago Andrew McCabe was nobody's idea of a hero, except to James Comey and maybe Robert Mueller. They think Mr. McCabe, tarnished or not, cashiered or not as the deputy director of the FBI, purveyor of fibs, stretchers and lies with and without varnish, might still ...

One last dance with Hillary Clinton

Thu, 15 Mar 2018 21:16:09 -0400

There's scarcely a pundit, wise guy or blowhard at the end of the bar who hasn't sworn off Hillary Clinton, vowing that it's time to find something new to rant and rave about.

But Washington pundits on the make for a clever insight owe her at least a case of ...

Can California do what the Confederacy couldn't?

Mon, 12 Mar 2018 21:25:15 -0400

California has no cannon guarding San Francisco Bay, and it's not likely that anybody at City Hall would know how to use one if there were, but Jeff Sessions, the U.S. attorney general, nevertheless has some wise words along with his lawsuit against California's sanctuary cities seeking to nullify federal ...

The worm overturns the immigration debate

Thu, 08 Mar 2018 20:30:12 -0500

The worm doesn't turn often, but when it does nothing is more satisfying that watching it blush. Nobody likes know-it-all worms.

Americans, including presidents, have warned for years that out-of-control immigration threatens to overwhelm national security, welfare agencies, schools and the fundamental culture of the nation, and for their trouble ...

The Democrats ponder a second McGovern fling

Mon, 05 Mar 2018 21:10:09 -0500

The silly season arrives early. Considerably more than a dozen prospective Democratic candidates for president in 2020 are lining up to talk about how they would dispatch the Donald to the island of discarded presidents.

Some prospects are more plausible than others. Some are sillier than others. But it's a ...

The president Donald Trump could have been

Thu, 01 Mar 2018 20:32:09 -0500

The $64,000 question in Washington, still a lively speculation well into the second year of the Trump era, is whether Donald Trump with a little self-discipline could have accomplished more than he has, or whether a disciplined Donald could accomplish anything at all.

He has accomplished a lot more than ...

Dreamy dreams in the Democratic bubble

Mon, 26 Feb 2018 21:23:18 -0500

Some of the worthies on the left have counted the votes and the Democrats have their nominee for 2020. It's either Oprah or Kamala Harris, or maybe Michelle Obama. Everyone's too giddy to get it all straight, but whether Oprah or Michelle or Kamala, someone's got the fork to stick ...

Billy Graham, preaching from the belly of the beast

Thu, 22 Feb 2018 21:41:09 -0500

Five of us from The Washington Times were invited to Pyongyang in April 1992 by Kim Il-Sung, the grandfather of Rocket Man. The man called "the Great Leader," regarded as the founder of the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea, wanted to open his hermit kingdom to the world, and we ...

Everybody's playing the new game in town

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 21:11:09 -0500

Washington measures everything and everyone by politics, and dysfunction is the new game in town. Rant and rage has become the lingua franca of the nation's capital. Taking the measure of Robert Mueller's indictment of 13 Russian cybernauts for interfering on Vladimir Putin's behalf in the 2016 presidential campaign is ...

The snookered press at Pyeongchang

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 21:47:08 -0500

When Kim Jong-un dispatched his crack propaganda team to Pyeongchang (and not P.F. Chang, the Chinese restaurant chain, as reported by NBC News) to cover the Winter Olympics, he couldn't have imagined that the American media in town would have been so easy to con.

It was so easy, in ...
