Biden's first press conference was a revealing piece of reality TV 

Biden's first press conference was a revealing piece of reality TV 

Joe Biden carried off his first press conference with his customary dynamism on Thursday afternoon. It wasn’t a real press conference, but it was a revealing piece of reality television. Biden campaigned as a return to normality. But this episode from a slo-mo Truman Show is anything but. The number of questioners was restricted, ostensibly due to Covid-19 regulations. The questions were known in advance: on Thursday morning, Americans with nothing better to do could read in newspapers and on websites which journalist was going to ask what question.Biden knew what was coming. He even knew...

President Biden is crumbling before our eyes

President Biden is crumbling before our eyes

Joe Biden’s decline has become so painful to see and so embarrassing to watch that it feels cruel to mention it. But it’s even more cruel that Biden’s team act as if it’s not happening, and most of America’s media look the other way. , Biden marked the first anniversary of the Covid-19 shutdowns and his fiftieth day in the White House by giving the first televised address of his presidency. He hadn’t been seen in public for three days, which is what he seems to require if he’s not to unravel before the cameras.From the moment he wheezed up to the lectern and peered into the camera, you...

Opinion | Everybody Expects the Anti-Catholic Inquisition

Opinion | Everybody Expects the Anti-Catholic Inquisition

Skip to Main ContentSkip to SearchByI’m not Catholic; my parents just liked the name. But anyone who cares for law and liberty should be appalled by the notion that Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s faith should disqualify her from serving as a Supreme Court justice. The fear that Catholic-influenced thought is un-American is older than the republic. The English Protestant tradition identified Catholicism with “popery,” political absolutism and foreign influence—all the undemocratic spirits inimical to the freedom-loving Englishman. This is what John Wilkes, an English...To Read the Full...

Donald Trump is catching Sleepy Joe napping in his election surge

Donald Trump is catching Sleepy Joe napping in his election surge

An American election cycle runs for two years, and longer if you count the fundraising run-up. But an American election doesn’t get going until after the Labor Day holiday on the first Monday in September.The current election cycle has been running for nearly four years – since the morning of 9 November 2016, when a stricken Hillary Clinton conceded to Donald Trump. And it has barely begun. This is why Joe Biden, or at least the handlers who work his Twitter feed and give him his cocoa, should be very worried by the polls.Donald Trump makes so much noise that we miss the stealthy, subtle...

Pompeo’s principles | Spectator USA

Pompeo’s principles | Spectator USA

‘Come in.’ Burly, brisk and maskless, Mike Pompeo indicates a chair before the marble fireplace. ‘It’s all right if we’re six feet — or two meters — apart.’We are meeting at the State Department the day after Pompeo’s return from Qatar, where US negotiators have opened discussions with the Taliban and other Afghan factions on an end to the war in Afghanistan. It’s also the day before the signing of the Abraham Accords between Israel and the UAE and Bahrain. Cheerful and perhaps a little tired, Pompeo exudes forceful confidence: a man who knows what needs to be done.As Secretary of State...

Pompeo is right on Iran sanctions | Spectator USA

Pompeo is right on Iran sanctions | Spectator USA

The halls of the UN are a habitual stage for empty gestures and vaporous rhetoric, but last Friday’s Security Council vote was a dangerous theater of the absurd — and one in which two of the United States’s allies played ignominious supporting roles.The Council not only rejected the Trump administration’s proposal to extend Resolution 2231, which restricts conventional arms sales to the rogue regime in Iran. Britain and France, two American allies, abstained.Why are Boris Johnson and Emmanuel Macron signaling that the pressure is off, the coast is clear, and the mullahs are free to arm...

Bill Clinton: from boomer to Zoomer | Spectator USA

Bill Clinton: from boomer to Zoomer | Spectator USA

It’s no fun to see Bill Clinton in a virtual vacuum. He’s a people person, a glad-hander, a back-rubber, a donor-stroker, a bottom-fondler. But on Tuesday night, Clinton was a prisoner of Zoom. The big dawg had no legs to rub against.Clinton probably felt as bad about it as his audience. No extended ovation and whooping. No chance to mingle in the green room and offer a White House internship to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Not even an over-long embrace of Rosalynn Carter or a from Jeffrey Epstein’s 22-year-old masseuse after an arduous journey on a private jet to Africa.Tuesday Night was...

Is Michelle Obama angling for her own shot at the White House?

Is Michelle Obama angling for her own shot at the White House?

All politics aspires to the condition of entertainment. Given the condition of entertainment these days, this is no longer such a stretch. Michelle Obama . This was planned, but it did not go to plan. Obama has star power. She made low-wattage Biden look like a guttering candle.  Obama was meant to warm up the crowd for Biden. Instead, she blew him off the stage to rapturous applause – or would have, because this convention is being conducting as the world’s biggest Zoomathon. In space, no one can hear you whoop.Conventions go on for days, until the party members surrender. The speaking...

Get ready for the return of the Iran Deal | Spectator USA

Get ready for the return of the Iran Deal | Spectator USA

The Trump administration has the first successful foreign policy of any administration since that of George H.W. Bush. It must be stopped.This, incredibly, is the message from the Democrats. And that, disastrously, is what will happen if Joe Biden wins the elections. Get ready for the revival of the failed foreign policy of the Obama administration, and brace yourself for the return of the Iran Deal.Visionaries like Obama, Susan Rice and Ben Rhodes thought it would be smart to have the Muslim Brotherhood in charge of Egypt. They thought it would be strategic to smash up Libya because the...

Trump’s Art of the Executive Order | Spectator USA

Trump’s Art of the Executive Order | Spectator USA

The Executive Order is political weakness at its most powerful. The spectacle of Donald Trump adding his Sharpie-stroke to the catalogue of puissant signatures confirms the United States’ slow but steady drift from a Romanesque republic to Roman-lite empire. Trump was supposed to be better, or at least different.The wisdom of the day has it that the business of America is business, even when, as in healthcare, that business is thoroughly corporatized. Who better to negotiate through the paralysis of Congress than a commercial deal-maker, a splitter of the difference, a washer of one hand...
