The Obama Justice Department's Insane Attack on North Carolina

(John Hinderaker) Of all Barack Obama's unforgivable sins, his corruption and politicization of the Department of Justice ranks near the top. Under Eric Holder and now Loretta Lynch, DOJ has become a lunatic enforcer of far-left fantasies. The latest instance is DOJ's letter to the Governor of North Carolina, claiming that North Carolina's law requiring that bathrooms, locker rooms and so on be used by those of the proper sex–male or female,

A Rare Foray Into Culture Criticism

(John Hinderaker) I can put up with just about any Game of Thrones sub-plot, as long as the show eventually gets back to Tyrion Lannister and Daenerys Targaryen. But the current Arya Stark misery, with no name or no face or whatever it is–no eyesight, for sure–needlessly and stupidly sidelines one of the program's best characters. The story is boring, repetitious and as far as I can tell, going nowhere. We don't

He takes a well-deserved victory lap today: That seemed a bold prediction at the time — that the presidency, not just the Republican nomination, which he now has, was Trump's to lose. But it really wasn't so courageous. It was almost obvious, if you would
