Democrats Have Lost Bill Clinton's Winning FormulaDemocrats Have Lost Bill Clinton's Winning Formula

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 08:42:15 -0600

Jonathan Tobin, New York Post
Commemorating the 25 years since the 1992 presidential election may have seemed like a great idea when the geniuses at the Clinton Foundation began planning a big party for their boss. But the celebration held last weekend coincided with the epidemic of famous men accused of sexual harassment or assault, which reminded us of Bill Clinton’s equally horrible behavior.

The Best Analogy to Trump in 2017 Is Bush in 2005The Best Analogy to Trump in 2017 Is Bush in 2005

Ezra Klein, Vox
But the most persuasive analogue is nearer both in time and in space. What this period most closely resembles, argues political scientist Brendan Nyhan, is the aftermath of the 2004 election, when George W. Bush defeated John Kerry. Then, like now, a culturally polarizing Republican candidate was narrowly elected after a campaign waged atop nationalistic, identitarian appeals. Then, like now, the GOP gained control of both the White House and Congress. Then, like now, the winner had no clear policy mandate, and quickly suffered massive legislative defeat (Social Security privatization for...

John Kirby, CNN
In an aw-shucks stunt, the White House press secretary encouraged reporters to first say why they were thankful before asking questions in a press briefing--all part of the administration's effort to undermine the credibility and stature of a free press.

Conservative Group Aims to Sell Republican Tax PlanConservative Group Aims to Sell Republican Tax Plan

James Arkin, RealClearPolitics
American Action Network, a nonprofit organization focused on issue advocacy and allied with Speaker Paul Ryan, spent $20 million boosting tax reform efforts in the run-up to last week’s critical vote. Now, the group will shift its focus to praising members who backed the bill while continuing to apply pressure as corresponding legislation works its way through the Senate and, presuming it passes, back to the House for a final vote.

Trump Proves His Warrior Spirit by Defending MooreTrump Proves His Warrior Spirit by Defending Moore

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 08:46:18 -0600

Charles Hurt, Washington Times
At some point, every warrior eventually runs out of arrows. His armor wears thin yet grows heavier still. He must lay down his weary helmeted head for rest. Even Coriolanus was forced to retreat — at the behest of his mother. Not so Donald Trump. Not a weary drop of blood pumps through the man’s veins. He wears his thick armor light as skin. His bottomless quiver is never empty.

Amanda Marcotte, Salon
It's now been more than six weeks since a New York Times exposé about Harvey Weinstein triggered a flood of people stepping forward with stories about being sexually harassed by powerful men. Last week, the news cycle was swamped with accusations against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore and Minnesota Sen. Al Franken. This week, there is another accusation against Franken and an explosive Vox story reporting that numerous women say New York Times star reporter Glenn Thrush kissed and manhandled them against their will, and then talked smack about them at work afterwards.

Had enough of theoretical arguments about free tradeâ??of complaints by establishment Republicans and the business community that President Trump is leading us from the glorious era of free trade into a recession induced by his protectionist policies? Well here's a tangible example that should help you decide what is happening in the real world.China has announced that it will soon be marketing its cars in the United States. The People's Republic is the largest manufacturer of cars in the world, selling more vehicles than Japan and the United States combined. And not because they make such...

Thomas Lifson, American Thinker
Now that the FBI's informant on the Uranium One deal has been outed and the nondisclosure agreement formerly muzzling him abrogated, it is possible to see the outlines of the devastating case to be made against not just Hillary Clinton, but the entire Obama administration. Two intrepid reporters, John Solomon of The Hill and Sara Carter of Circa News and Sinclair Broadcasting, are gaining access to some of the reported 50,000 documents in the possession of William Campbell, the whistleblower who went to the FBI with the scary details of what appeared to him to be an illegal attempt by...

A Beleaguered Tillerson Is Still at the TableA Beleaguered Tillerson Is Still at the Table

David Ignatius, Washington Post
A funny thing happened to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on the way to the exit door: He didn't leave. He may be "Dead Man Walking," as many Washington analysts assume. Yet he's still pursuing the same list of quiet but mostly correct diplomatic goals as when took the job 10 months ago. Tillerson has had a catastrophically bad encounter with official Washington. The White House disdains him; the State Department resents him; the press corps mostly scorns him. Tillerson presses on as if he doesn't care. Many officials claim they don't give a damn about "inside the Beltway" opinion; Tillerson...

Amy Sorkin, The New Yorker
Angela Merkel is not going to resign as the Chancellor of Germany. “No, that’s not on the table,” she said, with a small, suppressed smile, when asked, by one of two interviewers for the German television broadcaster ZDF, if that prospect had, “in quiet moments,” occurred to her. She hasn’t had many quiet moments this weekend, a juncture at which her job, at least to observers, has never seemed more in danger—even if Merkel herself doesn’t see it that way.

Peter Coy, Bloomberg BusinessWeek
The Justice Department is citing some surprising authorities in its lawsuit to stop AT&T Inc. from buying Time Warner Inc.—namely the companies themselves. Time and again, the complaint quotes from statements and filings by AT&T and Time Warner to make the government’s case that the $85 billion merger would be bad for customers.
