    An Empire If You Can Bear It

    In his classic study of "isolationism," Not to the Swift, Justus Doenecke takes note of a phenomenon called "Asia Firstism"—the view of conservative politicians and publicists of the postwar era who opposed meddling in Europe but saw Asia as the equivalent of the long-vanished American frontier and the East as the natural sphere of American expansionism.

    Who Hates Trump?

    Politics is all about hatred. Never mind who you’re voting for: It’s who you’re voting against that really counts. And that’s why any disagreement I may have with Donald Trump’s actual policies is completely irrelevant.

    If It Leads, It Bleeds

    The bonds that bind us together as a nation are fraying, and this is by design. Divide and rule is the byword of the “Resistance,” but they are banking on a victory that isn’t necessarily in the cards.

    The Coming Backlash

    The media frenzy that greeted the victory of Donald Trump is now reaching a pinnacle of manic hysteria. Every single day, it seems, there is some new toxic, trumped-up accusation: He’s a Russian agent! He’s obstructing justice!

    Where Honor Is Due

    I got a call from a Washington-based journalist the other day who wanted to know if Pat Buchanan had any influence on the platform of our current President. What a question!

    Considering Bannon

    They liken him to Rasputin and Svengali: He’s the éminence grise of the Trump administration, the hard-line ideologue who represents and multiplies all the darkest impulses of that man in the Oval Office.

    Ada Missed the Boat

    Trump took on the Clinton machine, the Republican Party, the media, the oligarchs, the neocons, and the national-security establishment—and he won. A massive media campaign, the likes of which we have never seen before in this country, was unleashed against him.
