    For a few short weeks in May of 2018 a curious yet fierce debate raged throughout the internet. Nothing as pedestrian as the Lincoln-Douglas debates, nor as monumental as the cola wars of the mid-1980s, yet still, the country was captivated. Did he say “Yanny” or did he say “Laurel”? The Yanny vs. Laurel debate centered on a 2007 recording of opera star Jay Aubrey Jones speaking the word “Laurel”. Yet, depending on the background noise, frequency, and the speed at which the recording is played, countless people heard the name “Yanny”. One recording, two distinctly different words, and a...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi insists the impeachment procedures adopted last Thursday are "the fairest possible." Don't believe it. In truth, a provision slyly added at the last minute is all but certain to deprive President Donald Trump of the ability to defend himself. Expect a one-sided propaganda circus with Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., acting as ringmaster. Democrats are boasting about the "impeachment inquiry protections" offered to Trump, claiming they're the same as the rules devised for President Richard Nixon and President Bill Clinton. But that's a baldfaced lie. Section F, quietly devised by Judiciary Committee Chair Jerrold Nadler,...
  • In 365 Days, It’s Weeks Like This One That Voters Will Remember

    Last week was one for the record books, not just for President Donald J. Trump, but for the entire country, which witnessed major economic, domestic policy, and national security accomplishments packed into a single calendar week. Now, with 365 days until election day 2020, these are the kind of weeks that will be remembered by voters as they consider their choices — and that’s bad news for Democrats up and down the ballot. The week started in the morning of Sunday, October 27th, as President Trump took to the podium in the White House’s Diplomatic Reception Room to announce...

    How many people know that Joe Biden has scurrilously defamed an innocent man in the death of Biden’s first wife, Neilia, and infant daughter, Naomi? This matters. It is not a small thing.Neilia and Naomi Biden were tragically killed, and his sons Hunter and Beau severely injured, on December 18, 1972 when the family car was broadsided by a truck while Neilia was taking the kids Christmas shopping. An investigation by authorities revealed no evidence that the driver of the truck, Curtis Dunn, had been drinking, according to the man who headed up the investigation, Delaware Judge Jerome Herlihy. Yet,...

    PARIS -- What if U.S. President Donald Trump wins a second term? That's the unfathomable thought seeping into the minds of Democratic Party establishment members as they ponder the thoroughly underwhelming slate of candidates they're offering up to American voters. The current crop of Democratic presidential contenders is so unimpressive that there are now rumblings about 2016 loser Hillary Clinton potentially joining the race. How did America end up here? Democrats can't understand how Trump could conceivably still win in 2020 despite facing impeachment and continuing to make near-daily public displays of boorish behavior. Their main problem is that all...

    If you mixed together Cannae, Agincourt, Normandy (yeah, I went there), and Armageddon, then multiplied that battle by 100, you get some idea of the scale of the upcoming death match to be held just a few miles up the road from me in California’s 25th Congressional District. Katie Hill, she of the bizarrely convoluted relationships and questionable hairbrush perch hygiene, got the ole heave-ho by Nancy Pelosi after Redstate reporter Jennifer Van Laar’s exposé of the up ‘n coming Democrat’s multi-faceted relationship choices, choices so icky that they even freaked out the Cali crowd. Now that her former congressional seat, snagged...

    The New York Times and CNN co-sponsored the recent Democratic presidential debate. The New York Times has not endorsed a Republican for president since 1956. Prior to the Mueller report, the influential paper published story after story about alleged Russian collusion with the Trump presidential campaign. Project Veritas, the investigative reporting outfit that uses undercover video, recorded CNN employees complaining about the cable news organization's anti-Trump agenda. On one video, a voice, identified as CNN president and CEO Jeff Zucker, can be heard all but instructing his staffers to focus on impeachment, to the exclusion of what taped staffers say...

    Anyone really believe the pearl-clutching class was actually upset about President Trump comparing the secret impeachment inquiry into him to a lynching? Democrats could barely catch their breath as they expressed their outrage over the tweet, and self-promoting TV conservatives fell right in line. What some people will do to maintain contracts that allow them to avoid honest work and having marketable skills or talent.Lost, or ignored, in all the MSNBC peacocking, CNN posturing, and House and Senate pandering was the fact that Donald Trump was absolutely correct.Words have meanings. That everyone understands this and knows those meanings is what...

    There isn’t a dollar in existence that one or more of the Democrats running for president haven’t promised to spend on something. It doesn’t really matter on what, it’s already gone. Of course, your tax money is already spent, as is that of your children and a good chunk of what your grandchildren will earn; that’s what happens when you have a national debt surpassing $22 trillion. So what’s a few tens of trillions more? In the last debate, most of the candidates on the stage came out in favor of a wealth tax, under the banner of the rich...

    When talking to supporters both before and after the rally, impeachment seemed to be furthest from their mind. October 18, 2019 By Madeline Osburn DALLAS, Texas — It’s only fitting that the first sentence out of President Trump’s mouth at his Dallas, Texas rally on Thursday night was about the luxury fashion brand Louis Vuitton.“I am thrilled to be here, deep in the heart of Texas, where we just opened a beautiful, new Louis Vuitton plant,” Trump said from the American Airlines Center podium.Wealthy, beautiful women with designer purses is in fact what many Texans think of when they think...

    It’s early. Way too early to discuss polling in any serious measure, especially in the absence of a Democratic nominee, but the liberal media loves to trot out their trash polls about the president’s approval ratings and support for impeachment in what could be argued as a prolonged campaign to demoralize the GOP base. It won’t. If anything, how the liberal media has behaved over the past three years has only become one massive in-kind contribution to Trump’s re-elect as everyone sees through their bias, lies, and gross incompetence. How many times were we told about Russian collusion? It was...

    Americans were “treated” to yet another excruciating round of #DemDebates on Tuesday. Lower-tier candidates had no qualms showcasing how desperate they are to lead the pack, criticizing frontrunners like Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) for having ideas…not too different than their own. For example, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Ca.), South Bend, Indiana Mayor Peter Buttigieg, and Andrew Yang each have their own gimmicky big-government proposals.  But, for all the different specifics, there’s one common theme: pain and suffering for taxpayers. The candidates can conjure up all the statistical pyrotechnics that they want, but at the end of the day, working-class Americans will...

    With all the rancor in politics these days, the CNN/New York Times Democratic debate on Tuesday night delivered a rare moment of comity: Twelve Democrats agreed, apparently without compensation, to appear in a Donald Trump ad. Other points on which the Democrats came together in peace and harmony: -- Trump should be impeached. -- Abortion is great. -- Obamacare sucks. At least we’re all finally agreed on Obamacare! Obamacare has given us a system -- to quote Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont -- “which is dysfunctional, which is cruel, 87 million uninsured, 30,000 people dying every single year, 500,000 people...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi recently announced the details of her long-anticipated prescription drug reform plan. Not surprisingly, the plan is more of the same from the Democrat leadership – price controls, government meddling in the marketplace, and disincentives to invention and innovation. As the Democratic Party is engaged in a full march towards socialism with “Medicare for All,” free college, higher taxes, and government control over every industry - this drug plan fits right into that radical agenda. Some have suggested that prescription drug reform is one area where President Trump (and the GOP) can find common ground with the...

    The NBA can’t disrespect Americans enough for knowing which bathroom to use, or having guns, or not being sufficiently woke, but let the Chinese communists get fussy because some dude dunks the reds over oppression in Hong Kong – you know, supporting freedom – and the billionaire ballers can’t gimp it up fast enough for Mao’s heirs. We haven’t seen such pathetic, eager submission to the forces of evil since the last time some Bulwark scribbler got a chance to be on a CNN panel about Trump with Ana Navarro and a cross-dressing furry. And it’s not just the rich...

    Daniel Patrick Moynihan was an American public servant with characteristics all too rare today -- integrity, intelligence, wisdom. Moynihan was a Democrat who would find a hard time being at home in today's Democratic Party. He was a policy adviser in Democratic -- Kennedy -- and Republican -- Nixon -- administrations and went on to serve four terms as a Democratic senator of New York.

    For a quarterback, the hardest part about playing a road game is trying to call signals over the din of the opposing team’s fans. President Trump is leading this country on a game-winning drive despite the ear-splitting roar coming from the Democrats and liberal media personalities sitting in the cheap seats. As a lifelong businessman whose first foray into politics was winning the presidency in 2016, Donald Trump is kind of like the old-school barnstormers who were always the “away” team, contending with opponents (the Democrats) playing on familiar turf (the D.C. swamp) with the backing of a supportive...

    On at least two occasions here at Townhall, I’ve addressed the likelihood that, despite the severe apocalyptic scenarios presented by some on both sides, any resistance to the long-term implementation of a Democratic-led gun confiscation plan will involve a lot less ‘bang’ and a lot more ‘whimper.’ (If you haven’t checked them out yet and would like to, you can read both columns here and here.) While I’m not always able to read the comments on my columns, I do try to give the more controversial ones a closer look, mainly to get a feel for the overall consensus and...

    Last week, I gave a talk to high-wealth investors in San Francisco -- not exactly an audience of left-wing activists -- and people kept asking me the question of the day: "Will there be a recession?" My reply: I'd never say never, but I don't see a recession in 2020. And if we get a trade deal with China, the economy is going to soar. What was disconcerting was the reaction from the audience. Many people frowned. One woman shouted at me: "I want a recession so we can get rid of Trump." I said to her as nicely as...
