Trump Has Become the Democrats’ Great White Whale

Victor Davis Hanson // American Greatness One way of envisioning the Democratic obsessions with Donald Trump is as an addiction.

Trump’s High-Wire Act of Reestablishing Deterrence without War

There had been no tense standoffs with North Korea, but also apparent intercontinental ballistic missiles with possible nuclear warheads now pointed at the United States. Obama more or less punted on North Korea, …

Federal Rats Are Fleeing the Sinking Collusion Ship

Victor Davis Hanson // American Greatness The entire Trump-Russia collusion narrative was always implausible. One, the Washington swamp of fixers such as Paul Manafort and John and Tony Podesta was mostly bipartisan and predated Trump.

Why Progressive Anti-Semitism — and Why Now?

Victor Davis Hanson // National Review The New York Times International Edition recently published an anti-Semitic cartoon of a dachshund with the face of Benjamin Netanyahu. The composite animal was leading a hunched Donald Trump who had on dark sunglasses, as if blind, and a yarmulke. Almost immediately, everyone pointed out that the theme of doglike Jews …

Victor Davis Hanson // American Greatness One of the strangest things about the series of psychodramas that surround the ongoing effort to remove President Trump before the 2020 election is progressive schizophrenia. In teenage fashion, one moment a player in the Trump removal intrigue is deemed by the media-progressive nexus a demigod. The next moment, …

Russian ‘Collusion’s’ Greatest Hits

Victor Davis Hanson // American Greatness From late 2015 until April 2019, the media, the Left, and the Obama administrative state hierarchy warned us nonstop that candidate, president-elect, and inaugurated President Trump “colluded” with Russia to defeat Hillary Clinton, to assemble a suspect cabinet, and to rule in treasonous fashion in the interests of Vladimir …

The Tables Turn in Russian Collusion Hunt

Victor Davis Hanson // American Greatness The irony of the entire Russian collusion hoax is that accusers who cried the loudest about leaking, collusion, lying, and obstruction are themselves soon very likely to be accused of just those crimes. Now that Robert Mueller’s 674-day, $30 million investigation is over and has failed to find the …
