(Paul Mirengoff) In a pair of posts, John has praised a pair of speeches by Donald Trump — one in Wisconsin and the other in North Carolina. And rightly so; they are good speeches. John says the Wisconsin speech contains the message that will win Trump the presidency if voters hear it. The proviso is important because, as John points out, the Democratic Party media will do everything possible to prevent Trump's

CRB: No buyer for Breyer

(Scott Johnson) Stephen Breyer seems to me the ne plus ultra leftist progressive on the Supreme Court. I assume that's one of the reasons why Justice Scalia relished sparring with him.

New York Values

If New York City had guided the country, America probably would not have rebelled against King George III. For that matter, if New York had set the national tone, the North probably would not have fought the Civil War, and the South would have been allowed to secede into the Confederacy. At least since the early 1900s, when New York overtook Boston to become the nation's largest cultural center, the city has prided itself on being the Great City of America. But the truth is that New York doesn't march comfortably alongside the rest of the country. The Pied Piper of Manhattan has never managed to make much of America follow.
