A Blue Wave From Another Universe
Evil days. The midterms were bearing down on us like a runaway train with Donald Trump in the driver’s seat and the throttle wide open, the Presidential Special hell-bent for the bottom. “Go Trump Go!” tweeted David Duke, former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, as if the president needed anyone’s encouragement. There had... Read More

Above, the ex-Speaker is pictured with Al Sharpton during a 2009 tour promoting education, a faux pas by Gingrich so weird it was condemned by Jennifer Rubin. See, earlier, by Hubert Collins: From 80 to 60 Percent White: How to Lose a Congressional District, No Matter WHAT Kind Of Republican You Are Before contemplating the... Read More
Georgia slouches Gomorrah
Georgians have a probably apocryphal story about Andrew Young, the black former mayor of Atlanta and ambassador to the United Nations. In an address at historically black Clark Atlanta University, Mr. Young talked about white flight. “No matter where they go,” he said, “we will follow. No matter how far away they move, we will...

The Trump Administration, and before that his Presidential campaign, have been a long succession of crises, but the most serious crisis has now arrived: Trump appears listless and besieged and his enemies now control the House of Representatives, including its formidable investigatory power. [House Democrats have oversight investigation plans far beyond Russia probe, by Heidi... Read More

No matter who is elected Israel comes first
Judging from the mainstream media, Israel was not a major issue in the midterm election but it sure did come up a lot when candidates for office were wooing Jewish or Evangelical voters. To cite only one example, Florida Congressman Ron DeSantis criticized his opponent Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum during their gubernatorial race for receiving... Read More
Jack Ohman cartoon, The Sacramento Bee: California is a riot!
I wasn't closely following the midterm elections campaign, but the results seemed to be about as expected for Donald Trump and the Republicans. With some races still undecided, the Democrats will apparently pick up close to 35 House seats, giving them solid control, and also a half-dozen governorships, while losing at least a couple of...

In 1898 the state of Louisiana held a constitutional convention with the declared aim of disenfranchising black people and perpetuating white rule. “Our mission was, in the first place, to establish the supremacy of the white race in this state to the extent to which it could be legally and constitutionally done,” reads the official...

The war in Washington will not end until the presidency of Donald Trump ends. Everyone seems to sense that now. This is a fight to the finish. A postelection truce that began with Trump congratulating House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi -- "I give her a great deal of credit for what she's done and what... Read More
The Democratic Party has won control of the House of Representatives. Its members effectively will be able to block all legislation that the Senate passes and the president wants. They also will be able to unleash their subpoena power mercilessly on the executive branch. Will the members of the new majority view their victory primarily... Read More
Readers are asking for my thoughts about the midterm elections. Looking at this CNN map— seems that except for thin areas of the northeast and west coasts and hispanic and black enclaves in the southwest and south, the country overwhelmingly voted Republican. In my opinion, flyover America voted Republican because the “deplorables” want to defend... Read More

If you’re a critic of global capitalism (sometimes referred to as “globalism”), I’ve got some good news and some bad news for you. The good news is, you’re not a “peddler of Russian propaganda” anymore. The bad news is, you’re an anti-Semite. You’re probably also a domestic terrorist, or an “emboldener” of domestic terrorism, or... Read More
I never cease to be amazed at the insouciance of Americans. Readers send me emails asking why I ever supported Trump when he was the Establishment’s candidate. If Trump was the Establishment’s candidate, why has the Establishment spent two years trying to destroy him? The failure to put two and two together is extraordinary. Trump... Read More

I’m Doing This For Michelle Goldberg Too, Even If She Doesn’t Realize It
I wrote two pieces about my time canvassing for Republican Brian Kemp’s gubernatorial candidacy in Georgia. (See Red, Blue, and (Ultimately) White: What I Found When Canvassing For Brian Kemp In Atlanta and The Canvasser’s Tale: Kavanaugh May Be Helping GOP.) The CultMarx vigilante group Media Matters point-and-spluttered about the fact that a real racist... Read More

So, it’s three weeks before the US midterm elections, and it looks like we have got ourselves a horse race! That’s right, folks, once again, it’s time to start playing with those forecast maps on Real Clear Politics and FiveThirtyEight, and obsessively following the fluctuating poll numbers of congressional candidates you have never heard of...

Cooks and Casino Workers Take on Trump
It’s what campaigners say every November, I know, but this year’s election really is as important as it gets. Will U.S. voters choose to halt the progress of Donald J. Trump’s slow-motion coup? Or will the tide just continue rolling over us? So much depends on what happens in Nevada -- a state that once... Read More

For Immigration Patriots, Maybe Potted Meat
They’ve been popping up all over the state during the senate campaign this year, even in neighborhoods no one would dream of as hotbeds of support for the Democratic Party—those black-and-white signs with one large print four letter word in the middle: BETO. The signs are everywhere and yours truly has heard more than one... Read More

This has, in my opinion, been an unfortunate week in the politics of our republic. From a partisan political point of view the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings on Judge Kavanaugh. have ended well, with Kavanaugh being voted through by the committee. The entire Senate will vote on his appointment to the Supreme Court next week.... Read More
"If anyone is looking for a good lawyer," said President Donald Trump ruefully, "I would strongly suggest that you don't retain the services of Michael Cohen." Michael Cohen is no Roy Cohn. Tuesday, Trump's ex-lawyer, staring at five years in prison, pled guilty to a campaign violation that may not even be a crime. Cohen... Read More
