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 […]

Slashing at the Shadows of Trump

Slashing at the Shadows of Trump

    By Victor Davis Hanson  Trump’s publicly well-received speech (we hope the Obama first-person singular continues to give way to the Trump first-person plural) did not register with his enemies, mostly progressives but some Never Trumpers as well. But what if Trump follows up on his speech by letting his successful policies speak for […]

From Conspiracy Theories to Conspiracies

From Conspiracy Theories to Conspiracies

By Victor Davis Hanson Not all conspiracy theorists are unhinged paranoids—even when they insist there was a loosely organized if not sometimes incoherent effort to destroy Donald Trump’s candidacy beyond the bounds of “normal” politics and later a renewed and unprecedented endeavor to abort his presidency. After all, did anyone believe that in the year […]

Is Trump Really Crazy?

Is Trump Really Crazy?

 . By Victor Davis Hanson| January 8, 2018   American Greatness Michael Wolff’s sensational exposé of the supposed chaos of the Trump White House is no doubt largely a mix of fantasy, exaggeration, and some accidental truth. The postmodernist author even admits that his own methodologies defy verification, and so leave it up to the reader to […]

A Thanksgiving Toast To The Old Breed

A Thanksgiving Toast To The Old Breed

By Victor Davis Hanson, November 22, 2017 1:14 pm The late World War II combat veteran and memoirist E. B. Sledge enshrined his generation of fellow Marines as “The Old Breed” in his gripping account of the hellish battle of Okinawa. Now, most of those who fought in World War II are either dead or in their nineties. […]

Victor Davis Hanson: Let Down at the Top

Victor Davis Hanson: Let Down at the Top

By Victor Davis Hanson Our Baby Boomer elites, mired in excess and safe in their enclaves, have overseen the decay of our core cultural institutions. Since the Trojan War, generations have always trashed their own age in comparison to ages past. The idea of fated decadence and decline was a specialty of 19th-century German philosophy. […]

The Method to Trump’s ‘Madness’

The Method to Trump’s ‘Madness’

By Victor Davis Hanson The Democratic Party, as it did after Hubert Humphrey’s close loss in 1968, seems still to be misdiagnosing its 2016 defeat. Democrats see too little identity politics rather than too much as their trouble, and thus are redoubling on what has been slowly shrinking the party into coastal enclaves. Promoting Black […]

Diversity

Diversity

. By Victor Davis Hanson America is experiencing a diversity and inclusion conundrum—which, in historical terms, has not necessarily been a good thing. 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 […]
