GROW UP!

GROW UP!

By Thomas Sowell

Of all the many things said about Donald Trump, what was said by Roger Ailes, head of the Fox News Channel, said it all in just two words: “Grow up!”

It is amazing how many people have been oblivious to this middle-aged man’s spoiled brat behavior, his childish boastfulness about things he says he is going to do, and his petulant response to every criticism with ad hominem replies.

IMAGINED CONVERSATION BETWEEN DONALD TRUMP AND HIS CAMPAIGN MANAGER

IMAGINED CONVERSATION BETWEEN DONALD TRUMP AND HIS CAMPAIGN MANAGER

This is the conversation I imagine I might have heard (or something close to it) if I were a fly on the wall when Donald Trump had a meeting early this week with his campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski:

LARRY ELDER: FIVE DECADES OF LIES HELP DEMOCRATS CREATE MONOLITHIC BLACK VOTE

LARRY ELDER: FIVE DECADES OF LIES HELP DEMOCRATS CREATE MONOLITHIC BLACK VOTE

As recently as 1956, nearly 39 percent of blacks voted Republican in that year’s presidential election. After the Civil War, Abe Lincoln’s Republican Party easily carried the black vote — where blacks were allowed to vote. Unwelcome in the Democratic Party, most blacks voted Republican and continued to do so through the early part of the 20th century. It wasn’t until 1948 when 77 percent of the black vote went to Harry Truman, who had desegregated the military, that a majority of blacks identified themselves as Democrats.

2016 IS ABOUT THE ‘OLD POLITICAL CONSENSUS’ BEING DEAD

2016 IS ABOUT THE ‘OLD POLITICAL CONSENSUS’ BEING DEAD

My friend, J.E.Dyer has written a post about the current political environment that is so excellent that I thought I would repost it here so you can read it.

Everybody seems to be running around in fear, confusion, or both, about what’s going on with the American political right.

I call it that – the “American political right” – because it isn’t coherent or unified enough to call it “conservatives” or “the Republican Party,” and still correctly signify the majority of the people in it.  This, in fact, is one of the biggest sources of confusion.

If you enthusiastically support Trump, you’re not a conservative, by any definition.  That doesn’t mean you’re a bad person.  It means you don’t prioritize the actual principles of American political conservatism.  You’re not making your choice based on those principles.

JONAH GOLDBERG ON TRUMP AND THE ‘ESTABLISHMENT’

JONAH GOLDBERG ON TRUMP AND THE ‘ESTABLISHMENT’

THE GOLDBERG FILE, By Jonah Goldberg

Dear Reader (Including those of you in D.C. who may try to burn this “news” letter in a desperate attempt to stay alive during the snowstorm),

Well, here we go.

National Review’s “Against Trump” editorial and symposium came out last night, and the fecal matter hit the rotor blades.

That’s a bad turn of phrase since we’re neither sh** nor fan. We’re more like a lighthouse amidst the crap-storm, or, at least, we try to be.

This seems lost on a lot of people these days. I keep hearing from folks who seem to think that if Donald Trump is popular or the front-runner, then National Review — and yours truly — must bow to the popular will. Get with the program, they say. See the writing on the wall. Get out in front of this.
