Mrs. Clinton’s Fevered Nightmare

Hillary Clinton’s recent statements linking Representative Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) to the Russians — Mrs. Clinton’s current favorite enemy — provided Rep. Gabbard with an opportunity for a return volley, dubbing Mrs. Clinton “the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party

Superpower Blues

I don’t want the Turkish military to wipe out the Kurds. I also don’t want the Taliban to return to power in Afghanistan. Nor do I want the Chinese totalitarians to violate the rights of Hongkongers. Or for the Spanish government to slap long prison terms on peaceful Catalonian separatists.

The Democrats’ Wrong Number

“Where’s Hunter?” Donald Trump asks in front of his pro-Trump rallies (and of course on Twitter), referring to Joe Biden’s son and his cushy Ukrainian sinecure.  From the beginning of the Phone Call quasi-scandal, the upshot sure seemed to portend disaster for the Democrats, in general, and Biden’s presidential bid

Blizzard Fallout

“I’ve already deleted my Blizzard account,” offered the young man while taking my Starbucks order.  Blizzard Entertainment is a video game developer based in Irvine, California. Earlier this week, the company rescinded the Grandmasters tournament winnings of Hearthstone esports player Ng Wai Chung, whose professional name is “Blitzchung,” banning him

Stand By Your Tweet

Last Friday, Daryl Morey, the general manager of the National Basketball Association’s Houston Rockets, tweeted a graphic repeating the Hong Kong protesters’ chant,  “Fight for freedom! “Stand with Hong Kong!” But before I could hit “like,” he deleted it amid the massive backlash from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and

War Minus One Warmonger

At long last, John Bolton’s 17 month tenure in the Trump Administration is over. I won’t pretend not to be pleased. Yet I also do not pretend this national security advisor was always and completely on the wrong side. He has consistently claimed to have an ulterior motive for his

Buying Ice

The president wants to buy more land. On our dime. “The idea of the U.S. purchasing Greenland has captured the former real-estate developer’s imagination,” began a Wall Street Journal report last week. Donald Trump has asked about it anyway, “with varying degrees of seriousness.” Grønland — “Kalaallit Nunaat” — is

Protests and Propaganda

Poised to gobble up Hong Kong whole, completing the process Britain began when it ceded the colony back to China in 1997, the government of China remains concerned about world opinion, for it engages in massive propaganda. “When a projectile struck a Hong Kong woman in the eye this week

Who’ll Stop the Wars?

“Why were you the lone voice out there going after the neo-cons, going after the people who took us into these wars?” Chris Mathews, host of MSNBC’s Hardball, asked presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) after Wednesday night’s debate.  Pro-peace candidates do well with voters, but still most politicians and

Remember . . . the Maine?

“President Trump warned Thursday that America ‘will not stand’ for Iran shooting down a U.S. drone over the Strait of Hormuz,” a Fox News report summarizes, “while at the same time leaving open the possibility that the attack was unintentional.”  This incident immediately follows the previous week’s apparent provocation, attacks on

For Freedom in Venezuela

Last week’s coup in Venezuela flopped, it’s reported. But “coup” isn’t quite right: a popular rebellion failed to spark defections from key military commanders, who have become the end-all and be-all of Nicolás Maduro’s reign-at-rifle-point and rule by decree.  Anyone with open eyes can see the illegitimacy of the Maduro

Bellicose Exclusions

“Jones and his Infowars nutritional supplement sales empire are having a bit of a rough moment,” wrote Justin Peters last year at Slate, “since the bellicose conspiracist has recently been banned from several social media and podcast platforms due to his hostile and hateful behavior.” Like much of the commentary
