Parties More Divided Than Ever on Global Warming

To the Republican Party’s credit, they haven’t let the liberal establishment knock them off their pedestal of opposition to carbon taxes and other regulations meant to stave off global warming.

This is unfortunate, because ridicule is a powerful weapon. And it’s especially unfortunate in this case, because ...

Clinton Won the Race, but Sanders Won the Party

If you were asked to use the latest draft of the Democratic Party’s 2016 platform to surmise who had won the primaries, you would probably not guess that Hillary Clinton was the presumptive nominee.

Donald Trump is the Establishment’s Last Hope

The Washington establishment – Democrats, a healthy number of Republicans, the unelected “deep state,” and the political media – has been fighting tooth and nail against the stunning rise of Donald Trump.
