The Limits of American Patience

The Limits of American Patience

  By Victor Davis Hanson | American Greatness Not being willing any longer to be manipulated is not succumbing to isolationism. Wondering whether the United States can afford another liability is not mindless nationalism. Questioning whether America can afford the status quo here and abroad is not heresy. Assuming we can borrow our way out of […]

Washington’s Fantasies Are Not People’s Reality

Washington’s Fantasies Are Not People’s Reality

. By Victor Davis Hanson // American Greatness The Beltway’s sober and judicious foreign-policy establishment laments Donald Trump’s purported dismantling of the postwar order. They apparently take the president’s words as deeds and their own innate dislike of him as disinterested analysis. But is the world really imploding after 70 years of supposed “calm”? (Disregarding the […]

Camouflaged Elites

Camouflaged Elites

. By Victor Davis Hanson // Hoover Institution Even in the mostly egalitarian city-states of relatively poor classical Greece, the wealthy were readily identifiable. A man of privilege was easy to spot by his remarkable possession of a horse, the fine quality of his tunic, or by his mastery of Greek syntax and vocabulary. An […]

Swamp Things in the Russia Investigation

Swamp Things in the Russia Investigation

. By Victor Davis Hanson // American Greatness “The Swamp” usually refers to the vast federal bureaucratic machinery of mostly unelected top officials who exercise influence and power without worry about the appearance of conflicts of interest. They are often exempt from the consequences of the laws and regulations that affect others. The chief characteristics of […]

The Paradoxes of the Mueller Investigation

By Victor Davis Hanson // National Review They are numerous, and none of them are good news for President Trump’s opponents. Special Counsel Robert Mueller has indicted 13 Russian nationals for allegedly conspiring to sow confusion in the 2016 presidential election. The chance of extraditing any of the accused from Vladimir Putin’s Russia is zero. […]

Understanding the California Mind

Understanding the California Mind

By Victor Davis Hanson // American Greatness Nancy Pelosi gave a marathon speech on illegal immigration the other day. But how would she know much about the realities of open borders, given her palatial retreat in Northern California and multi-millionaire lifestyle that allows wealthy progressives like herself to be exempt from the consequences of her own hectoring? […]

Scandal, Corruption, Lawbreaking — And So What?

Scandal, Corruption, Lawbreaking — And So What?

    By Victor Davis Hanson The FISA-gate, Clinton emails, and Uranium One scandals are sort of reaching a consensus. Many things quite wrong and illegal were done by both Hillary Clinton and her entourage and members of the Obama agencies and administration — both the acts themselves and the cover-ups and omissions that ensued. […]

A Year of Achievement: the case for the Trump presidency

A Year of Achievement: the case for the Trump presidency

. By Victor Davis Hanson  As President Trump finished his first full year in office, he could look back at an impressive record of achievement of a kind rarely attained by an incoming president — much less by one who arrived in office as a private-sector billionaire without either prior political office or military service.

Rethinking the Geography of Power

Rethinking the Geography of Power

. By Victor Davis Hanson Where the seats of power are located matters. Given the populist revolt in the United States and Europe against the so-called global elite, it is time to refigure the geography of governmental and transnational power. Take the United Nations. Much of the international body’s perceived negatives derive from being in […]

Radioactive Trump

Radioactive Trump

    By Victor Davis Hanson  Hillary Clinton seems to be experiencing a strange, slow motion meltdown following her 2016 loss to Donald Trump. Recently, she sent out a Twitter video message, recorded on her cellphone camera, with advice to feminists:  “And let me just say, this is directed to the activist bitches supporting bitches. So […]
