Democratic Candidates Aren’t on a Winning Track

Democratic Candidates Aren’t on a Winning Track

  By Victor Davis Hanson Presidential candidates from both parties usually sound hard-core in the primaries to appeal to their progressive or conservative bases.

Why Are the Western Middle Classes So Angry?

  By Victor Davis Hanson What is going on with the unending Brexit drama, the aftershocks of Donald Trump’s election and the “yellow vests” protests in France? What drives the growing estrangement of southern and eastern Europe from the European Union establishment? What fuels the anti-EU themes of recent European elections and the stunning recent […]

Colluders, Obstructionists, Leakers, and Other Projectionists

  By Victor Davis Hanson Before the defeat of Hillary Clinton, the idea that the Russians or anyone else could warp or tamper with our elections in any serious manner was laughed off by President Obama. “There is no serious person out there who would suggest that you could even rig America’s elections,” Obama said […]

Now that Robert Mueller’s 674-day, $30 million investigation is over and has failed to find the original […]

Yes, ‘This Is America, 2019’

So has the second special prosecutor phase of the coup to abort the Trump presidency failed. There […]
