Politics of Denunciation Will Soon Have To Stop Even If Moore Is Doomed

Tue, 14 Nov 2017 14:16:30 EST

It is hard not to look upon the Roy Moore imbroglio as another well-timed hit-job from a familiar and well-practiced source the same people who thought they had destroyed the Trump campaign by releasing the Billy Bush tape from eleven years before, and, when that didn't finish Mr. Trump off, tried the nuclear option late in the campaign by shopping to the press the Steele dossier, which the Clinton campaign had commissioned, with its salacious and seditious elements.The dossier was so extreme...

Trump Attack on Regulation Starts To Win Admiration Both At Home and Abroad

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 10:54:53 EST

President Trump, in a "brief telephone call" with the New York Times earlier this month, listed "what he saw as his biggest accomplishments, including a focus on deregulation." The Times relegated the mention of deregulation to a paragraph low down in the story, which itself ran inside the newspaper rather than on the front page.It wouldn't be the first time that the elite press or its readership made the mistake of failing to pay attention to, and to actually hear, what Trump is saying. More...

Time Arrives for Hardball As House, Senate Wrestle On the Trump GOP Tax Bill

Fri, 10 Nov 2017 18:40:14 EST

As the House and Senate work their way through the tax-cut-and-reform effort, let me make one thing clear: Both plans are pro-growth where the economic power comes from the business side. And where it comes from the personal side, there will be little growth. That was always the bet.During the spring and summer of 2016, economist Steve Moore and I, working with Trump campaign officials Steven Mnuchin and Stephen Miller, saw major tax reductions for large and small businesses as the centerpiece...

Hound of the Baskervilles, Sicced on President Trump, Now Chases Its Own Tail

Wed, 8 Nov 2017 08:55:46 EST

The American and some international press I have scoured in vain to find any recognition of what a Gordian knot of absurdity the investigative pretzel of official Washington has become. No one seems to have noticed that the Democrats are now making unctuous noises about the inviolability of a process that has disintegrated into utter nonsense.

Shalane Flanagan Is Lucky She Wasn't Clobbered By a Runners' Inheritance Tax

Mon, 6 Nov 2017 14:56:50 EST

What does Shalane Flanagan's victory in Sunday's New York Marathon have to do with President Trump's proposal to repeal the estate tax?Most of the news coverage of Ms. Flanagan's victory celebrated her victory: she's the first American woman to finish first in that race since 1977. A few stories noted in passing that she is the daughter of Cheryl Bridges Treworgy, who was once the world record holder in the women's marathon. I didn't, though, see or hear anyone saying that diminished Ms...

Trump's Decision on Opioids Triggers Debate on Addiction And Much Misinformation

Tue, 31 Oct 2017 16:48:08 EST

President Trump's declaration that opioid abuse is a public health emergency is sparking debate about addiction. Tragically, myths and misinformation are blocking the path to preventing more deaths.Start with the causes of the opioid crisis. On Face the Nation, Governor Christie, chairman of Trump's opioid commission, blamed over-prescribing doctors. "This crisis started not on a street corner somewhere. This crisis started in the doctor's offices and hospitals of America." That's untrue...

Mueller at a Time for Truth: Focus of Russia Probe Needs To Be on Clintons

Tue, 31 Oct 2017 10:01:57 EST

The pretense of the Democrats to derive some pleasure from the Manafort and Gates indictments and the guilty plea of George Papadopoulos is one of the more challenging attempts at moralistic theatrics Senator Schumer has attempted in the last year.It doesn't quite measure up to bursting into tears on the Senate floor over a slightly restricted right of people from a few terrorism-afflicted or -sponsoring countries to visit America. But he did chin himself on the almost impeachable significance...

Fate of the American Dollar Is Hanging in the Balance As Trump Mulls Fed Chief

Fri, 27 Oct 2017 23:08:15 EST

President Trump is likely to name a new Federal Reserve chairman over the next few days. Speculation is focused on current Fed governor Jay Powell and Stanford economist John Taylor. The list may be larger. It could still include Janet Yellen or Kevin Warsh. Trump is soliciting opinions and advice from people in and outside government. We will see soon enough.Unfortunately, so much of the conversation about a new Fed leader is focused on who will be the high-interest-rate hawk or the...

With Clintons Tied to Scandal A Triple Deus Ex Machina Descends Upon Washington

Thu, 26 Oct 2017 05:19:14 EST

It is delicious to see, even more suddenly and completely than anyone had anticipated, the breakdown of the steamroller media smear of Donald Trump. A trinitarian deus ex machina descended.The Washington Post, struggling desperately in its discomfort, a few days ahead of the information being forcibly extracted by congressional subpoenas, acknowledged that the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee had paid for the assembly of the Steele dossier.This rotten fish of lies and...

Trump Presidency Is Shifting Finally Into High Gear As Scandal Engulfs Clintons

Tue, 24 Oct 2017 18:14:46 EST

The pattern of the Trump administration is evolving, despite many perturbations, toward a more conventional relationship with the press and the country. I was taken gently to task last week by my colleague Jonah Goldberg for applying "Never Trumper" as an umbrella for all those who would rather endure horrible personal fates than suffer the president to complete his term rather than, as it apparently means, just Republicans of that view. I was merely being fashionably inclusive, but I repent...

What Next of Trump-Schumer After Senator Flip-FlopsOn the Iran Nuclear Pact?

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 21:39:50 EST

If Senator Chuck Schumer can't agree with President Trump on the Iran deal, what can he agree on? That's the question after the senator's bizarre flip-flop on the Obama administration's appeasement of the ayatollahs.Mr. Schumer flipped right after Mr. Trump announced he was decertifying the nuclear pact. "We won't allow the Iran deal to be undone," Mr. Schumer tweeted.The Democrat tried to hide behind the defense secretary and chairman of the Joint Chiefs. "The @SenateDems agree with #SecDef...

Never Trumpers Retreating To the 25th Amendment As Impeachment Talk Fades

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 11:14:25 EST

The Never Trumpers seem to have retreated, more or less in unison, to the last trench before they throw down their arms and run backwards for their lives: They are now invoking the 25th Amendment. This indicates that they realize the impeachment movement has failed.There is no evidence to impeach, and various unctuous congressional-committee poseurs have acknowledged that they are reduced to the Steele dossier. That source was not respectable enough to make the press in months of circulation...

Trump's First Anniversary Shapes Up as a Good Year For Both Fans and Critics

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 15:26:01 EST

As we approach the first anniversary of the election that brought us President Trump, it's hardly too soon to ask how he's doing. One might think it's a question whose answer would depend on your original perspective.If you voted for Hillary Clinton and were worried that Mr. Trump was going to repeal ObamaCare, cut taxes on the rich, build a wall on the Southern border, and get America into a war with Iran or North Korea, you might have one answer.Yet if you voted for Mr.Trump and were hoping...

Justifying Betrayal of Vietnam Emerges as the Raison d' re Of Ken Burns' Film on the War

Wed, 11 Oct 2017 09:11:04 EST

The only positive thing I can say about Ken Burns' documentary on the Vietnam War is this if it is the best the left has, we may blessedly have heard the last of them. The arguments Mr. Burns presents are weak, biased, and insulting. The documentary is scripted to evoke sorrow and moral indignation over what was presented as American error, ineptness, and lack of moral purpose.The narrative counterposes happy and earnest winners (the communists) with sad and angst-ridden losers (America and...

Disgraceful Charade Unfolds In Battle Over Evidence Twixt Mueller and Congress

Wed, 11 Oct 2017 08:44:28 EST

It is with great reluctance that I must take issue with my very esteemed friend Andy McCarthy, in this case with his treatment of the Steele Dossier, which makes a lot of sensational allegations against President Trump of compromising past relations with Russia and its leaders.The dossier is named after retired British MI-6 Russian specialist Christopher Steele, was compiled initially at the request of the shady political-interference and espionage operation Fusion GPS, was paid for by...

Trump's Feud With the Press Is Proving 'Dangerous' But to Whom Exactly?

Mon, 9 Oct 2017 10:36:02 EST

For the feud between President Trump and the press, there is no shortage of explanations. "Little Marco," "low-energy Jeb," and "Lying Hillary" have been vanquished. The Democrats are leaderless, and what leaders they have Senator Schumer and House Minority Leader Pelosi seem open to cooperating with the president when it makes tactical sense to them and to him. So Mr. Trump, with some accuracy, perceives the press as his main opposition.Others see more sinister motives. Charles Blow...

New Trump Economic Aide Lights Into Ideologues In a Bid for Tax Cuts, Jobs

Sat, 7 Oct 2017 13:45:23 EST

President Trump's new chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, Kevin Hassett, walked into the lion's den last week with his first official speech. He used the moment to pound the leftist Tax Policy Center. It was a wonderful sight.When Mr. Hassett wasn't pounding the TPC, he was spanking them. He took them to the woodshed, and disciplined them in public view. Mr. Hassett rightfully accused the TPC for ignoring widely accepted economic literature, for using false assumptions on tax details...

Cruz-Sanders War Looms Unless Congress Enacts Trump's Plan for Growth

Thu, 5 Oct 2017 04:42:34 EST

American political discourse is becoming more fruitless all the time.The terrible tragedy in Las Vegas has led to amplified calls for gun control, although no version of gun control that anyone is advocating would have prevented that tragedy. The perpetrator had no criminal record or worrisome psychiatric history and would have passed any proposed test to show the responsibility necessary to buy a sophisticated gun, and the principal demand the Democrats have put forth is Hillary Clinton's...

How the Sale of a Picasso Illuminates the Cruelty Of the U.S. Tax Regime

Tue, 3 Oct 2017 08:13:50 EST

The most illuminating recent article about the tax reform debate didn't appear on the front page of any newspaper. It wasn't in the business section, or on the editorial page. It was an interview that appeared on an inside page of the New York Times arts section with Ellen Stern.Mrs. Stern isn't an academic economist or a politician or a tax policy expert at some Washington think tank. She's a widow. Her husband, Jerome, died in March. Beginning on November 14 and continuing through March 2018...

'An Act of Pure Evil'

Mon, 2 Oct 2017 10:25:51 EST

President Trump, speaking to the nation from the White House following the slaying by a lone gunman of more than 50 concert-goers at Las Vegas, called the killings an "act of pure evil" and called for comfort upon "the bonds that unite us our faith, our family, and our shared values . . . the bonds of citizenship, the ties of community, and the comfort of our common humanity." He said he would travel to Las Vegas on Wednesday.
