Hillary Clinton Looks Back in Anger

David Remnick, The New YorkerHillary Rodham Clinton, who, as she puts it, won “more votes for President than any white man” in American history, is not the first candidate to capture the popular vote but lose the election.

How Don Hewitt Invented 60 Minutes & Changed Journalism

  • 0

Jeff Fager, Vanity FairFifty years is an eternity in the television world. The average show lasts about two and a half. But this fall 60 Minutes kicks off a half-century on-air. Many factors have helped sustain the broadcast over five decades, but a lot of them can be traced all the way back to the program’s conception. It’s an unlikely story because there never would have been a 60 Minutes if its creator, Don Hewitt, hadn’t been fired back in 1965.

New Clinton Emails Warrant Special Prosecutor

Daniel Sobieski, American ThinkerNew emails unearthed by Judicial Watch confirm that the Clinton Foundation was in fact a pay-to-play influence peddling operation far more worthy of a special prosecutor than imaginary Russians colluding under Trump Administration beds.

Inside Bill Cassidy's Plan to Replace Obamacare

Avik Roy, ForbesThe first attempt to get an Obamacare replacement through the Senate failed due to two groups of GOP holdouts. The first group, led by Rand Paul (Ky.), believed that the Better Care Reconciliation Act did too much to replace Obamacare.

Communities are tearing themselves apart over the statues of long-dead Confederate generals. Controversy rages over which slogan—“Black Lives Matter” or “All Lives Matter”—is truly racist. Antifa street thugs clash with white supremacists in a major American city. Americans argue over whether the USC equine mascot “Traveler” is racist, given the resemblance of the horse’s name to Robert E. Lee’s mount...

Identity Politics Is an American Tradition. Because It Works.

Joshua Zeitz, PoliticoWhen Abraham Lincoln was running for reelection in 1864, a typical Democratic Party newspaper warned that should Lincoln earn a second term in office, his administration would bring about the “blending of the white and the black”—an epidemic of black men and “snow-white bosomed” women falling into sexual liaisons—a profusion of “squint-eyed yellow babies” born to “every Abolition woman … quickened by the pure blood of the majestic African.” It was a common refrain that ugly election season, in which Democrats cast the coming...

Dancing With the Democrats Will Not Save Trump

Walter Shapiro, Roll CallMemo to the Democrats: Figure out how far Donald Trump is willing to travel on the ground before he gets bored and restless. Whatever the number is for our short-attention-span president (maybe a mile by golf cart and 10 miles by limousine), the Democrats should agree to build a border wall of precisely that length. Consider it a Potemkin Wall.
