Will Supreme Court Now Act Against Judges' Campaign To Foil Trump Presidency?

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 19:57:40 EST

Could the fight over the Dreamers finally get the Supreme Court to put its foot down on the campaign by liberal district judges to foil Donald Trump's presidency? It looks like we could find out.That's because of the announcement this week that the Trump administration will try to go back to the Supreme Court over the latest orders from a judge in San Francisco.The judge blocked the president's immigration policy partly because he sniffed a "plausible inference" of "racial animus." Mr. Trump...



Democrats Squander Chance To End Second Civil War In Advance of November

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 10:09:24 EST

The first opportunity for a successful end of the Second Civil War, between President Trump and the incumbent political class, has been squandered by the Democrats. Nothing could be done until Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker Paul Ryan accepted that they could no longer pretend to be happy neutrals in the mortal combat between Mr. Trump and the Democrats in Congress, waiting to see whether Mr. Trump would be impeached or not.Mr. Trump won the chicken game with his ostensible...



Trump's Foes Beat Retreat To a Rat-Infested Trench And Wave 25th Amendment

Wed, 10 Jan 2018 19:57:48 EST

Having encountered Michael Wolff and having had an acidulous public exchange with him, I attest that he is an utterly odious man. He can't write properly, has no professional integrity, and is a sociophobic mud-slinger and myth-maker. His entry into the continuing Trump controversy in its twilight proclaims that we have reached the era of the swiftly evaporating, nausea-inducing nothingburger.Yet, in what will surely prove the one civically useful thing Mr. Wolff will have done in his adult...



No Sooner Does Winfrey Win Than the Resistance Arises To Her Divisive Presidency

Mon, 8 Jan 2018 15:19:08 EST

It's February 2021, just a few weeks into the Oprah Winfrey Administration, and, far from healing America's divides, it turns out that President Winfrey has only deepened them.Hundreds of thousands of Americans who had voted to re-elect President Trump take to the streets in mass protests in dozens of American cities, wearing white "Keep America Great" hats, carrying "resist!" signs, and driving pickup trucks with gun racks and bumper stickers that say "not my president."These volunteer...



Bannon Down, Market Up Signals the Resurgence Of Real American Populism

Sat, 6 Jan 2018 01:19:26 EST

There were two big money-and-politics stories in the first week of the new year: The Dow Jones soared 577 points and Steve Bannon ended his political career. Are these two events related? Perhaps more than you might think.Mr. Bannon's peculiar notions of populism were essentially anti-growth. He believed higher taxes, ultra-protectionism, and a cheap dollar would help the middle class. Supply-siders know these policies only damage the economy, with the middle and lower classes suffering the...



Call It the Year of the Wolf: Special Prosecutor Poses A Danger to the Presidency

Thu, 4 Jan 2018 05:43:01 EST

Call this the year of the wolf. That's apropos a warning about special prosecutors and their ability to shake presidential confidence. It's from the pen of one of our most visionary Supreme Court justices, Antonin Scalia.He's now gone, alas. You can bet the scales of justice, though, that he would've been thinking of President Trump's boldness as the president and his aides are pursued by Robert Mueller.What Scalia worried about was the ability of the president to stay focused in a dangerous...



Newspapers Opposing Trump Begging for Relief on Duties On Newsprint From Canada

Tue, 2 Jan 2018 08:04:36 EST

If you think President Trump has an antagonistic relationship with the press now, just wait until his administration slaps a new 30% tax on newsprint.Seriously. That's the threat America's newspaper publishers are warning about, with the Commerce Department's International Trade Administration set to issue a preliminary determination by March 7, 2018 on whether Canada's export into the United States of "certain uncoated groundwood paper" meets the legal tests to qualify for countervailing...



Steven Spielberg's 'The Post' Fails To Land the Real Scoop On the Fate of Free Vietnam

Wed, 27 Dec 2017 20:07:59 EST

"Democracy dies in darkness" is the new motto of the Washington Post. It adopted the slogan amid the campaign of the liberal press to topple President Trump.Steven Spielberg's new movie about the Washington Post is a reminder however unintended of something else. Sometimes democracy dies in the full glare of the press.That's what happened in Vietnam. And the film, "The Post," takes on a special irony today, as a press full of righteous indignation seeks to overturn an American election.Mr...



Hold the Big Celebration: States May Impose Their Own ObamaCare-Type Penalties

Wed, 27 Dec 2017 05:00:00 EST

Tax-reform legislation signed into law last week eliminates the federal penalty for not having health insurance, starting in 2019. That's good news for those who've been buying ObamaCare to avoid the penalty, and even better news for those who've actually been paying the penalty.But don't start celebrating yet. In New York, California, Maryland, Connecticut, New Jersey and other deep-blue strongholds, the insurance industry and left-wing activists are agitating to enact state penalties to...



Will 2018 Be the Year Apple Starts To Falter? Our 'Office Pool' Posers

Mon, 25 Dec 2017 10:16:10 EST

In memory of the late William Safire, place your bets now on possibilities for the year ahead. Use the available choices or try writing in your own scenarios. Last year's iteration anticipated the Patriots Super Bowl victory, the stock market rally, President Trump's Jerusalem move, and the departure from Fox News of Megyn Kelly and Bill O'Reilly.The surprise nonfiction bestseller is a) Donald Rumsfeld's memoir of the Ford administration, "When The Center Held" b) Benn Steil's "The Marshall...



With Trump Tax Cuts GOP Turns the Tables On Class-War Democrats

Sat, 23 Dec 2017 02:19:44 EST

With President Trump's signing of the big tax-cut bill, the GOP snatched victory from the jaws of defeat. Suddenly, the political and economic landscapes have changed. The Republican party has turned the tables on the Democrats.Mr. Trump and the GOP are on the side of the growth angels with the passage of powerful tax-cut legislation to boost business investment, wages, and take-home family pay. The Democrats, meanwhile, are left with stale class-warfare slogans about tax cuts for the rich...



Ho, Ho, Ho. Jolly Good Year Shapes Up for Trump In Defiance of Doomsayers

Tue, 19 Dec 2017 14:53:46 EST

Those who are still predicting that Donald Trump will be impeached and removed from office are now like exotic and endangered creatures. It is like an absurdly slow dance, in which the steps are so infrequent and tentative that it is hard to remember how far participants have come since the music started.Two years ago, virtually the entire commentariat, and most of its readers and listeners, were splitting their sides at the gigantic impending farce of the Trump candidacy for the Republican...



Could Foreign Agents Law Ensnare New York Times With Legal Fine Print?

Mon, 18 Dec 2017 11:32:01 EST

Does the New York Times have to register with the government under the Foreign Agents Registration Act? The act has been in the news lately in connection with the wide-ranging probe by special counsel Robert Mueller into foreign interference in the 2016 presidential election.Mr. Mueller's indictment of President Trump's campaign manager, Paul Manafort, charges Mr. Manafort with misleading the Justice Department about his activities for Ukrainian clients. "It is illegal to act as an agent of a...



Liberal Hysterics on Trump Show That It's the Wish That Fathers the Thought

Thu, 14 Dec 2017 11:38:06 EST

In this season of frenzied liberal assault on the incumbent president and the almost uniform view of the long-standing bipartisan political elite of the United States that President Trump is a maniac, any falsehood about him or act of obstruction is justified in damaging his presidency, impairing his ability to govern, and bringing forward the swiftest possible return of the status quo ante-Trump.It is now routine for the principal outlets of media mythmaking to invoke the legacy of Richard...



Warfighters Extend Welcome To Journalism StudentsIn an Eye-Opening Encounter

Thu, 14 Dec 2017 06:31:24 EST

The grass at West Point has borne the weight of visitors beyond count. Annual markers graduation in spring, home football games in autumn, Veterans Day in November spike the tally. Sightseers from across the nation and around the world show up daily.Once a year my own graduate students make the two-hour bus journey from our Times Square campus to the military base. There we break bread with male and female officers serving three-year rotations as instructors of history, international...



Quirk in Senate Tax Bill Could Hold Big Surprise For Working Americans

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 02:02:58 EST

Republicans are supposed to be the party that cuts the job-killing capital gains tax, not raises it. But because of a quirk in the Senate-passed bill, the tax on capital gains may go up and for some types of long-held assets, fairly substantially.Most members of Congress don't even know of this stealth capital-gains hike.Here's the story. At the start of the year, Republicans promised to reverse the near-60% rise in the capital-gains tax under President Barack Obama a hike that helped bring...



Trump May Be No Churchill But Some Echoes SoundIn the New 'Darkest Hour'

Wed, 6 Dec 2017 19:24:23 EST

The next time President Trump gets the urge to tweet out his troubles, here's a friendly suggestion: He could take the first lady down to the Bijoux theater and catch the movie "Darkest Hour." It's the new telling of Winston Churchill's decision to reject the counsel of the appeasers. They wanted him to cut a deal with Hitler while Britain's army was trapped on the beaches at Dunkirk in France.



Retreat of the Democrats Grows Hard To Disguise After Indictment of Flynn

Tue, 5 Dec 2017 15:16:08 EST

It is hard to believe that Trumpophobic idiocy can plumb depths more profound than it has reached in the last few days. Just as the Russian-collusion argument, which was never supported by anything except Hillary Clinton's sulky evasions of her own responsibility for her electoral defeat, was sinking beneath the ripples the Trump-hating press had strenuously created for it, the Flynn indictment came.To anyone with any legal insight, such as Alan Dershowitz, Trey Gowdy, and Andy McCarthy (one of...



Moment of Truth on Taxes Is at Hand for Fence-Sitters Who Ducked Health Reform

Tue, 5 Dec 2017 10:56:04 EST

House and Senate Republicans are racing to hammer out a tax cut agreement that blends the House bill passed on November 16 with the Senate version that squeaked through at 2 am Saturday morning with one vote to spare. Failure to compromise is not an option. They must deliver a final bill to the president for signing before Christmas.The stake are high economically and politically. For too long, America's uncompetitive corporate tax rates have suppressed growth and wages, and driven companies to...



Trump Tax Measures Could Cut Both Ways, Boomerang on the GOP

Mon, 4 Dec 2017 12:16:19 EST

What to make of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the legislation passed by the Senate at 1:36 a.m. Saturday, by a 51 to 49 vote, with only Republicans in favor? Any final assessment has to await a conference with the House of Representatives that will attempt to bridge differences between the Senate bill and the one already passed by the House.For now, though, the legislation is a mixture of really encouraging developments and really disappointing ones. Encouraging is the reduction of the corporate...
