Does the Coronavirus Outbreak Tell Us That China Is Bad or Evil?

There were 7,711 confirmed cases of the coronavirus in mainland China on Thursday. The number of confirmed cases has grown by about one-third per day for the past several days—a disturbingly steep growth curve for a highly contagious virus that is said to mutate rapidly. And that is already more than the 5,327 infections that

The Indispensable Tucker Carlson

Michael Blake, the vice-chairman of the Democratic National Committee, just paid Tucker Carlson a high compliment. He’s trying to defame, delegitimize, deplatform, and, ultimately, cancel him. That’s because the Fox News host is the most articulate spokesman for a set of principles and priorities that are important to middle America, but anathema to the bipartisan

So Far, Trump Is Winning the Democratic Debates

Julián Castro framed the debate almost perfectly in his opening statement: The 2020 election will be won or lost in a handful of states, starting with Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, and maybe a few others like Arizona, where I live.

Fathers, Tell Your Sons To Emulate J.D. Vance

I don’t know when the “everything and everyone I don’t like in the world is a white nationalist” madness will burn itself out, but I pray it happens soon. It’s a remarkably destructive force that is turning Americans against one another. Every revolution needs its scapegoats, it’s ritual sacrifices. This time they came for J.D.

Only Bold Proposals Can Displace Globalism

Small-ball, targeted policies, and subtle tweaks will not suffice. Nationalist or globalist? Somewhere or anywhere? American citizen or citizen of the world? These are the questions driving much of our current politics. But what is globalism? Rather than give a definition, I think it’s more instructive to give some examples. Emmanuel Todd, a French sociologist

McConnell’s Senate Uses Subpoena of Don, Jr. to Attack Trump

When Senator Richard Burr (R.-N.C.) subpoenaed Donald Trump, Jr. to appear before the Senate Intelligence Committee which he chairs, he set off a firestorm among Republicans. Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation has concluded, clearing the president, his family, and his campaign of “collusion” allegations by Democrats and giving Republicans a period of relative
