5/14/2015 9:21:23 AM  Noah Rothman

5/14/2015 8:41:50 AM  Ed Morrissey
When news broke of the Vatican’s use of “State of Palestine” in an official document this week, it occasioned the launch of numerous analyses about Pope Francis and his political leanings. Instead of being an indicator of the

5/14/2015 8:01:06 AM  Jazz Shaw
Last night Noah wrote about the “sudden” flare-up in tensions surrounding China’s stance on maritime territorial control in the South China Sea, specifically as it relates to their construction projects in the Spratly Islands. While

Quotes of the day
5/13/2015 10:41:08 PM  Allahpundit
Dealing with a question that tripped up Jeb Bush, Ohio Gov. John Kasich says that the U.S. never should have gone to Iraq, knowing what we know now. "There's a lot of people who lost limbs and lives over there, OK?" the governor told The Dispatch

Hillary continues to do and say nothing as unfavorables tick up
5/13/2015 9:51:57 PM  Mary Katharine Ham
Hillary Clinton has taken no public position on the trade promotion authority bill everyone in Washington is talking about, and which has thrown Democrats into such paroxysms of back-stabbiness that even the Washington Post has compared their infighting

Who's ready for an international crisis in the South China Sea?
5/13/2015 8:41:46 PM  Noah Rothman

5/13/2015 8:01:25 PM  Jazz Shaw
Misericordia University in eastern Pennsylvania is getting some attention this week, though likely not the type that they might wish. One of their former nursing students is suing the school for failing to make accommodations for her disabilities,

Finally: The Romney/Holyfield fight promo
5/13/2015 6:41:02 PM  Allahpundit
To cleanse the palate, via the IJR, Romney’s more likable here in two minutes than he was in 15 months of stage-managed stumping during Campaign 2012. You wouldn’t vote for this man again? You’d vote for this man again. Ann Coulter

The Vatican recognizes nonexistent Palestinian state
5/13/2015 6:01:42 PM  Noah Rothman
Pope Francis has almost certainly cemented his place in the pantheon of liberal icons in the wake of the Holy See's decision to recognize in treaty what it refers to as the "State of Palestine." The Vatican has officially recognized the right of a

Third try from Jeb Bush: Iraq hypotheticals do a disservice to fallen soldiers; Update: I wouldn't have invaded, says Rubio
5/13/2015 5:21:42 PM  Allahpundit
Whether he meant it this way or not, this answer’s going to be interpreted as “Bush says not letting him dodge questions about Iraq dishonors the troops.” Think general election voters will let him slide? Asked by an audience member

Does Obama still plan to veto wildly popular 20-week abortion ban?
5/13/2015 4:41:39 PM  Noah Rothman
It was her opposition to a proposed ban on elective abortions at the 20-week gestation mark that elevated former Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis to the status of liberal celebrity. Progressives and their supporters in the press gushed over the

At the beginning of the month we looked at a pair of highly specific polls conducted in Iowa and New Hampshire on the subject of offshore drilling by American energy companies above the Arctic circle. The results came as close to showing cross party

Media can't help noticing that a lot of these stingy Republicans don't use Amtrak
5/13/2015 3:21:38 PM  Allahpundit
You red-staters really should be more generous in subsidizing the northeastern professional class, you know. Why is funding Amtrak such a struggle? Because Republican districts don't use it. —

White House wants an apology from Dem senator who called Obama sexist
5/13/2015 2:41:14 PM  Noah Rothman
Try not to smile too hard as identity politics devours its practitioners. Last night, Mary Katharine performed an astute roundup of the series of harsh recriminations being slung at Democrats by Democrats amid an internecine fight over a proposed free

No, really, how are these Republican debates going to work with so many people onstage?
5/13/2015 2:01:00 PM  Allahpundit
Tell me who I’m leaving out: Bush, Walker, Rubio, Paul, Cruz, Christie, Huckabee, Perry, Jindal, Santorum, Graham, Carson, Fiorina, Trump, maybe John Kasich, maybe even Rick Snyder. There’s also a chance Peter King and/or John Bolton will

NY Governor unintentionally endorses radical idea of letting police handle sexual assault cases on campus
5/13/2015 1:21:21 PM  Jazz Shaw
One of the chief bones of contention in the whole campus “rape culture” saga has been the wild west atmosphere created by university tribunals which take it upon themselves to handle what are ostensibly serious criminal cases. The potentially

Hours after tragic train derailment, MSNBC ghoulishly uses it to advance a political agenda; Update: Train was going twice the speed limit
5/13/2015 12:41:27 PM  Noah Rothman
"Never let a crisis go to waste," as Chicago mayor and former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel famously said. In MSNBC's case, you could add "tragedy" to the list of events that should be exploited for all their maximum political value. In an

New Jersey looks at throwing in the towel on "smart gun" law
5/13/2015 12:01:52 PM  Jazz Shaw
Some possible good news on the Second Amendment front is emerging from New Jersey. One of the most intrusive (and frankly, unworkable) gun control laws in the country may be heading for the scrapyard as legislators in the Garden State slowly come to the

Ted Cruz on invading Iraq knowing what we know now: Nope. Chris Christie: Nope. Jeb Bush: I'm … not sure
5/13/2015 11:31:11 AM  Allahpundit
Watch the three (short) clips below. Having Christie and Cruz, two guys at opposite poles of the party, give the same answer to this question is all the proof you need that it’s the “correct” answer politically, even in a primary filled

5/13/2015 11:01:28 AM  Ed Morrissey
When Seymour Hersh first published his allegations that Barack Obama and the White House lied significantly about the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, the story was met with considerable skepticism, to say the least. Much about his tale didn’t
