The Absurd Calls to Shut Down Fox News | National Review

ongoing festival of cancellation now brings calls that your local cable company should no longer carry Fox News Channel — and should kick off One America News Network, Fox Business Network, and Newsmax TV, as well.Nicholas Kristof of the New York Times , “I’d like to see pressure on advertisers to withdraw from Fox News so long as it functions as an extremist madrasa, and cable providers should be asked why they distribute channels that peddle lies.”Max Boot of the Washington Post  that “large cable companies such as Comcast and Charter Spectrum, which carry Fox News and provide much of its...

Trump Impeachment 2.0 Is as Flawed as the First | National Review

nothing good to say about Donald Trump’s meretricious argument that Joe Biden stole the 2020 election; or Trump’s trying to steal it for himself by frivolous if not fraudulent litigation and administrative proceedings and intimidating elected officials at all government levels; or his inciting violence on January 6 to preclude Congress from fulfilling its duty to certify the Electoral College vote; or Trump’s sundry efforts to convert the Justice Department into his personal law firm (including trying to suppress my recent book, on the pretext that it contained classified information, which...

U.K. Cop Charged for Sharing a Meme | National Review

U.K. Cop Charged for Sharing a Meme | National Review

Roughly once a week, I am paralyzed by an all-encompassing wish to move to the U.S. Friends, colleagues, and other assorted Britons often react with repulsion when I detail this desire. “How could you!” — they cry — while listing off readymade soundbites on the epidemic of gun violence, the “latest coup attempt,” and the battalions of mobilized Boomers ready to blow themselves up over conspiracy theories they read on Facebook.But I reassure them that all of these issues pale in comparison to the vast consumer surplus available over the Atlantic, the fact that everything I say over there is...

Joe Biden’s War on Women | National Review

Joe Biden’s War on Women | National Review

hours of his inauguration, President Biden signed an executive order entitled “Preventing and Combating Discrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity or Sexual Orientation.” It would more accurately be called “Promoting and Enforcing Transgender Activism.” Here, Biden is simply picking up where President Obama left off. But where Obama introduced his overreaching gender-identity policies by the backdoor — for example, in a 2016 “Dear Colleague Letter on Transgender Students” issued by the Department of Justice and Department of Education — Biden is more explicitly laying out his...

Sanders Vows Dems to Use Budget Reconciliation to Pass $1.9T COVID Bill if GOP Balks | National Review

Senator Bernie Sanders said Sunday that Democrats will use budget reconciliation, a process requiring only a simple majority in the Senate, to pass President ‘s $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package if Republicans refuse to get on board.“We are going to use reconciliation, that is 50 votes in the Senate plus the vice president, to pass legislation desperately needed by working families in this country right now,” Sanders told CNN’s Dana Bash on State of the Union.The Vermont independent, who is the incoming Budget Committee chairman, noted that Republicans used budget reconciliation to...

Yes, Biden Wants to End Fracking | National Review

We know Joe Biden wants to end fracking not only because his campaign literature promised to achieve “a 100 percent clean energy economy and net-zero emissions” in a few decades but because he explicitly asserted as much on numerous occasions.When CNN’s Dana Bash asked Biden during a Democratic primary debate: “Would there be any place for fossil fuels including coal and fracking in a Biden administration?” Biden responded, “No, we would we would work it out. We would make sure it’s eliminated.” When Bernie Sanders said, “I’m talking about stopping fracking, as soon as we possibly can,”...

The Spirit of 1776 | National Review

went out of his way on his first day in office to cancel Donald Trump’s 1776 Commission.Established to research and promote patriotic education, the commission was a welcome initiative — while it lasted.It sought to counterbalance the hostile view of American history advanced by the “1619 Project,” which jumped almost directly from the pages of the New York Times to the curriculum in schools around the country. That project made basic historical errors that it corrected only grudgingly and under pressure from some of the foremost historians in the country, absurdly argued for 1619 — the...

Why Roe v. Wade Is Still Unsettled at 48 | National Review

Why Roe v. Wade Is Still Unsettled at 48 | National Review

years after the Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade, expectations seem to be rising that the Court could overturn it sooner or later. At the vice-presidential debate on October 7, the moderator asked the candidates what the states should do if Roe were to be overturned. An abortion-rights litigator told at year-end, “Everybody thinks that we might be on the cusp of [Roe] being overturned.”When asked at her Senate confirmation hearings whether Roe was “super-precedent” like Brown v. Board of Education, Justice Barrett forthrightly replied: “I’m answering a lot of questions about Roe,...

Kentucky Governor Allows Born-Alive Bill to Take Effect | National Review

Kentucky Governor Allows Born-Alive Bill to Take Effect | National Review

Last week, the Kentucky legislature sent a series of bills to the desk of the state’s Democratic governor, Andy Beshear. Yesterday, Beshear vetoed six of the seven. On the seventh — a measure to protect infants born alive after abortion procedures — he declined to take any action.As ten days had passed since the bill arrived on the governor’s desk, in the absence of either a veto or a signature from Beshear, the bill became law. Beshear was widely expected to veto the born-alive bill; last spring, he vetoed a nearly identical piece of legislation, so his choice not to do so again is a...

We Will Always Have Paris | National Review

didn’t last long. Just a couple of months ago, the U.S. formally (and finally) completed the withdrawal from the Paris climate agreement announced by President Trump in 2017. On Wednesday, one of the first actions of the newly inaugurated President Biden was to begin the process for rejoining the Paris accord (it will take 30 days, as opposed to the years required to conclude America’s earlier departure). As when the U.S. initially signed up to the agreement under President Obama, this will be achieved by executive order, another example of the way that climate campaigners can be reluctant...

It’s John Brennan’s Authoritarianism That Threatens Democracy | National Review

time former CIA director John Brennan appears on cable news to warn America about some new “insidious threat to democracy,” I am reminded again that he deserves to be in federal prison. In this corrupt media environment, however, the official who oversaw an illegal domestic-spying operation on the legislative branch of the United States government, who tried to cover it up and blame innocent Senate staffers when discovered, and who then brazenly lied about it to legislators and the American people — this man is held up as a paragon of civic virtue.We still don’t even know what role …Goodbye...

Hello Cultured Meat, Goodbye to the Cruelty of Industrial Animal Farming | National Review

month, from Singapore, came news of the world’s first commercial sale of cell-cultured meat, the product of a bioreactor instead of a slaughterhouse. The story received attention mostly in the business pages, not quite registering elsewhere. To read the analysis of price points, scaling issues, and other such details, you would never know that for all humanity a life-changing event had just occurred.Meat without bloodshed — now that’s a story with legs, and the investment angles are the least of it. Singapore happened to be the site of this civilizational milestone because its government...

I was not trying to be cute. I have been wrestling with the wisdom of proceeding with impeachment due to the lateness of Trump’s term. But I would not call something impeachable unless it was serious enough to be condemnable by conviction, removal, and disqualification. Indeed, I have written a book about impeachment, , in which I argued that several...

The Ridiculous Attacks on the 1776 Report | National Review

This week, the White House released its 1776 Report, a much-needed to the historical revisionism that’s infected not only our media, but, far more destructively, our high schools and universities. It’s a straightforward patriotic document; the kind of reading that would be a useful civics lesson for the average citizen, immigrants taking a citizenship test, or certain professors in Princeton’s history department.These days, anyone or anything that refuses to depict the American founding as anything but a wholly racist enterprise will be cast as a tool of white supremacy.

A Rare Chance to End Illinois’s Notoriously Corrupt System | National Review

With his historic 36-year reign in that position now over, how can Illinoisans dismantle the system that has made their state government synonymous with corruption?Key to the task will be reconfiguring the machine, rather than just its operators. But to do that, we must first understand how things went so very wrong in Madigan’s Illinois.The public gained a window into Madigan’s system of influence-peddling and cronyism last year, when...

Why? “Because Trump is clearly winning, and they need time to find more ballots.”“The fact is, Donald Trump won a second term last night,” Bobb insisted, even as Trump’s margins were evaporating in key states.
