What Was So Shocking About Trump's Immigration Speech?

September 2, 2016 “Anyone who has entered the United States illegally is subject to deportation—that is what it means to have laws and to have a country.” That line from Donald Trump’s immigration speech in Phoenix was tweeted out, highlighted in yellow marker, by Josh Schwerin, a spokesman for Hillary Clinton, with the...

Can Hillary Clinton Make Good on This Opportunity?

May 4, 2016 The Republicans have made their choice. Now the Democrats’ likely nominee faces a dilemma of her own: Run as a centrist and try to pile up a huge majority—at risk of enraging Sanders voters? Or continue the left turn she’s executed through these primaries, preserve Democratic party unity—at the risk...

American Conservatives Face a Difficult Choice in 2016

March 14, 2016 The accelerating likelihood that Donald Trump will win the Republican presidential nomination outright thrusts an agonizing dilemma on Republican politicians. Leave aside their own personal feelings about Trump. The most likely consequence of a Trump nomination is a severe Republican defeat in November, and not a defeat for Trump alone....

Palin Endorses Trump, Forging an Alliance of the Aggrieved

January 20, 2016 Sarah Palin's star may have dimmed since 2008. Republican pundits and donors may have wearied of her. But Republican pundits and donors don’t typically vote in the Iowa caucuses. To many, many of the people who do vote there, Palin remains a heroine and a martyr. Endorsements are usually said...

The Kasich Campaign Releases Trump Attack Ads

November 25, 2015 A new round of attack ads are heading Donald Trump’s way, some from John Kasich’s campaign and the super PAC backing him, and more in the future from an LLC created specifically to produce anti-Trump messages. New Day for America’s 47-second ad splices together some of the Republican front-runner’s most...

Bombing Syria Won’t Make Paris Safer

November 20, 2015 Bomb ISIS. Go ahead. They deserve it. It certainly satisfies the primal need for visible retaliation after the Paris attacks. It may even do some good in the struggle against terrorism in Europe. Some—but probably not very much. The enemy against which France and Europe are struggling is not centered...

Counterterrorism's False Trade-off Between Security and Freedom

October 25, 2015 On Thursday, October 22, David Frum participated in a discussion on liberty and security at the Oxford Union, the famous English debating society, where he spoke in opposition to the resolution: “This House believes the U.K. has surrendered too much liberty in pursuit of greater security.” His remarks follow.

What the Next President Should Do With the Iran Deal

July 15, 2015 The next president of the United States will almost certainly be more hawkish on Iran than Barack Obama. Maybe a little more hawkish, if Hillary Clinton; potentially a lot more hawkish, if a Republican. What can that president do aboutthe nuclear accord that the Obama administration and several world powers...

Did the US and Iran Actually Agree on a Deal?

April 10, 2015 Barely days after U.S. and Iranian negotiators supposedly agreed to a “framework” for a final nuclear agreement, it is emerging that the United States and Iran may not actually have agreed after all. On his apparent Twitter account, Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has condemned the U.S. summary of...

Over There, and Overlooked

March 10, 2015 In a couple of months, we’ll mark the centennial of the sinking of the Lusitania, a history-bending event that will probably engage Americans not very much more than any of the other commemorations of the First World War over the past seven months.
