False Alarm at the Times

Sat, 13 Jan 2018 20:10:46 EST

No sooner had Hawaii sent out its false alert of a ballistic missile threat inbound for the 50th state than a special unit at the New York Times sprang into action. It's unclear whether that scramble began before or after Hawaii sent out word that the alert was in error (we've heard speculation on both sides). The assignment, though, was clear: Get up online before the other papers an editorial blaming this fiasco on wait for it President Trump.Aloha! Just how tricky this would be became...

Kim Makes His Move

Tue, 2 Jan 2018 17:44:48 EST

Well that didn't take long. It was fewer than nine months ago that we warned of the danger of South Korea capitulating to the North. "Everyone has been worrying about the ability of a nuclear-armed Iran to cow its neighbors in the Middle East," the editor of the Sun noted in a column in the New York Post. "What about the effect of a nuclear North Korea on the south?"

Second Chance on Iran

Tue, 2 Jan 2018 08:22:26 EST

The refusal of history to disclose her alternatives means we will never know what might have happened had President Obama stood up to the Iranian ayatollahs in 2009. As the Persian people take to the streets in latest protests against Islamist rule, though, we can go back and read the transcript of Mr. Obama's press conference of June 23, 2009, and we can focus on the price of appeasement. History has offered a second chance.

Rabbi Rubashkin's Freedom

Thu, 21 Dec 2017 08:44:16 EST

President Trump's decision to commute the sentence of Rabbi Sholom Rubashkin is being celebrated tonight in the world of religious Jewry. It is the world the Rabbi had served, heroically in the view of many, as president of what was, the report in the Jewish Telegraphic Agency notes, the largest kosher slaughterhouse in America. He had been convicted on various counts of fraud allegedly committed as he tried to keep his company afloat.The commutation is notable for a number of reasons...

Yes, Virginia . . .

Thu, 21 Dec 2017 00:00:00 EST

We take pleasure in answering thus prominently the communication below, expressing at the same time our great gratification that its faithful author is numbered among the friends of The Sun:Dear Editor I am 8 years old. Some of my little friends say there is no Santa Claus. Papa says, "If you see it in The Sun, it's so." Please tell me the truth, is there a Santa Claus?Virginia O'Hanlon115 West Ninety Fifth StreetVirginia, your little friends are wrong. They have been affected by the skepticism...

Trump's Tax Leadership

Wed, 20 Dec 2017 21:30:29 EST

President Trump's decision to gather the Republican legislators so he could thank them for their role in passing the pro-growth tax cuts that went into law today gives a glimpse at the president's modus operandi. Many of the congressmen and women had been working on tax reforms for years. "I want," said Mr. Trump, gesturing to the scores who worked on the bill and were gathered on the White House steps, "to have them come up and get the glamor and the glory."

'Off the Reservation'

Mon, 18 Dec 2017 07:42:58 EST

News this morning that President Trump intends to let the special prosecutor, Robt. Mueller, continue his probe of the president is disappointing for those of us who take a constitutional view of the matter. At least, though, it provides a peg to acknowledge Bret Stephens' comments about about the Sun's editorial called "The Mueller Firing Speech," which, the Times' columnist reckons, has landed us "off the reservation."

After Roy Moore

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 01:22:15 EST

The first thing we did when Judge Roy Moore went down to defeat in Alabama was go up on the Internet and re-read George Washington's farewell address. That is the parchment in which Washington stressed the importance of religion in our political life. "Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure," he warned, "reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle."There is no doubt...

Missing Mr. Moynihan

Thu, 7 Dec 2017 10:24:09 EST

As we begin what might be called the Jerusalem Era in American foreign policy, we find ourselves missing Daniel Patrick Moynihan. It was the magnificent senator of New York who began agitating for our recognition of Jerusalem and against the State Department's intransigence on this head. How nice it would have been were he have survived to savor this moment, when an American president laid out the logic that Moynihan himself began to sketch. . .

Senator Franken's Fate

Wed, 6 Dec 2017 21:15:17 EST

The late news is that Senator Franken is denying reports earlier in the day that he is going to announce Thursday his resignation from the Senate. Instead, in the face of allegations of sexual harassment, he's gone home to talk to his family. We, for one, hope the family of the junior senator from Minnesota tells him to slow down and hold out for a hearing in the Ethics Committee. There will, if he's guilty, always be time for him to quit.It is shocking to us that, according a report in the New...

A Jerusalem, Israel, Passport?

Tue, 5 Dec 2017 21:08:33 EST

President Trump is signalling that tomorrow he will recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, even while continuing to waive the requirement legislated by Congress that he move the American embassy itself to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv. Whether any of this will actually happen, it's hard to judge. If it does happen, what's next?The first thing we'd like to see is the long-overdue issuance to Menachem Binyamin Zivotofsky of a United States passport listing his birthplace as Israel. Mr...

The Mueller Firing Speech

Tue, 5 Dec 2017 10:18:57 EST

Following is the text, drafted by The New York Sun, of remarks it would like to see President Trump deliver: Good evening: A year ago next month I took the Constitutional Oath that has been sworn by every president since George Washington. It binds me to do two things: To faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States and, to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. It's an oath I swore before God . . .

Secret History of the Tax Bill

Sat, 2 Dec 2017 06:46:44 EST

Here's the secret history of the Trump tax triumph. The whole thing was headed for defeat because a rasher of Republicans were on the fence. Senators Susan Collins, Jeff Flake, John McCain, Lisa Murkowski, Bob Corker, Jerry Moran. So in an astounding break with journalistic tradition, the New York Times launched a direct lobbying campaign. It used a Twitter campaign to ask its readers to warn the wavering wise men that the tax cuts would balloon the deficit. It included phone numbers.What...

Nancy Pelosi's Due Process

Mon, 27 Nov 2017 04:54:34 EST

In respect of Congressman John Conyers, we're with Nancy Pelosi. We agree that Mr. Conyers is, to use Mrs. Pelosi's word, an "icon" in this country and within the Democratic Party. We agree that, in the face of the accusations of sexual harassment that have been levied against him, the congressman deserves due process. The House Ethics Committee would be a good place for it. Then again, also, too, we suggested the same thing in respect of another political icon, Judge Roy Moore. . . .

The Saudi Spring

Sat, 25 Nov 2017 10:15:57 EST

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia has won from Thomas Friedman of the Times an endorsement of what the columnist calls the "reform process" in the Saudi regime. "Unlike the other Arab Springs all of which emerged bottom up and failed miserably, except in Tunisia this one is led from the top down," Mr. Friedman writes. He adds: "Only a fool would predict its success but only a fool would not root for it."Call us a fool, but the Sun is going to hold out for an unconditional...

Escape From North Korea

Fri, 24 Nov 2017 20:17:40 EST

Breathtaking is the word we would use for the film of that communist soldier escaping to Free Korea. The video is from security footage taken from our side of the Demilitarized Zone, as the cameras peer across the central demarcation line and pick up the communist defector as he makes his desperate plunge for freedom. We gathered our children to watch after Thanksgiving.

'Juanita's News'

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 18:31:53 EST

With all the scandals in the news, liberals are turning on President Clinton. MSNBC's Chris Hayes reckons that the "center left" is "overdue for a real reckoning" with Mr. Clinton. The Times' Michelle Goldberg says, "I believe Juanita," a reference to Mrs. Broaddrick, who in the late 1990s alleged that in 1978, Mr. Clinton, then Arkansas' attorney-general, raped her at a hotel. Mr. Clinton has long denied the charge. Chelsea Handler tweets an apology to Mrs. Broaddrick. Ross Douthat, referring...

The Menendez Mistrial

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 12:53:43 EST

The best move for the Trump administration after the mistrial of the corruption charges of Senator Robert Menendez would be to call it a day. The deadlocked jury is reported to have been leaning ten to two toward acquittal. The better part of valor would be to leave it at that and drop further proceedings. What hung the jury, we don't know, but, by our lights, it's just hard to divorce the Obama administration's pursuit of Mr. Menendez from the politics of the Iran appeasement.Mr. Menendez...

The Atomic Trump

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 16:42:09 EST

Kim Jong Un must be enjoying the agitation in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in respect of the atomic bomb. The committee held a hearing yesterday on whether limitations on the president's authority to use such weapons are needed now that Donald Trump is commander-in-chief. If legislation emerges next year, they could call it the Kim Jong Un Emboldenment Act of 2018.The Dear Leader shouldn't get too excited. The hearing appears to be the brainstorm of Chairman Corker. He is the junior...

The Obamacare Tax Cut

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 16:44:00 EST

The Democrats are fit to be tied over the maneuver underway in the Senate to gut Obamacare through a tweak to the legislation enacting the Trump tax cuts. Imagine that. The mind reels at the thought. What could the Republicans possibly be thinking in dealing with national health insurance through a tax bill? Plus, too, they are preparing to do this on a party line vote.Blame Chief Justice Roberts & Co., we say. When Obamacare came before the Supreme Court, the Nine made short work of the...
