Is Trump’s grip on the GOP weakening?

Rich Lowry Republican politicians can be forgiven for thinking that the GOP is Trump’s world and they only live in it at his sufferance. He not only survived Jan. 6 and his second impeachment — he has thrived since. Trump’s rallies are still remarkably well-attended, he is making progress in his project of killing the…

Not Again

Susan Estrich I represented Fox News creator Roger Ailes five years ago. The New York Times called it “The Curious Case of Susan Estrich.” I didn’t consider it strange at all. I represented a friend of 30 years, who was being sued by a woman so virulently anti-Hillary Clinton in an election cycle that I had…

Warren Harding, a century ahead of his time

David Shribman Democratic Sen. Byron P. Harrison of Mississippi called the remarks “unfortunate in the extreme.” Sen. Thomas E. Watson of Georgia wondered why it was necessary for the speaker to travel to the South “to lecture their people.” Today’s historians regard the address as surprising. And even a cursory examination of the speech —…

Media gone wild (Over Trump!)

Ann Coulter If you really, really miss Donald Trump, MSNBC may just be for you!

Christopher Steele speaks

Byron York   The disgraced former British spy Christopher Steele has kept a low profile in recent years. Understandably so, given that investigations revealed his dossier — the collection of anti-Trump stories he compiled to try to undermine Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential candidacy — was filled with falsehoods and unverifiable claims. But now Steele has…

Yes, Our Economic Problems Are ‘High Class’

Froma Harpop Here’s how TV news works: What is just an annoyance becomes a concern. A concern turns into a serious worry. And a serious worry is elevated into a crisis. Stoking anxiety is how they keep the public glued. White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain recently got sucked into the cyclone when he…

The U.S. supply chain makes no sense

Rich Lowry   If there is one universally recognized principle in American political life, it’s that the president of the United States should want Christmas to come off without a hitch. Surely, this is one of the reasons Anthony Fauci rapidly backed off his comment in an interview the other day that it’s too early…

In Security

Susan Estrich   The answer is almost always $20. As in, how much do you think this turkey sand- wich cost? Hint: it used to be $10. Extra points: Remember, we’re in California, where there is an extra 10% tax on everything. Extra reminder: There’s a tip jar on the counter, a tip reminder on…
