Blue State Blues: The Trump Convention Was the People’s Convention

What united everyone in the room was the fact that everyone put America first. Donald Trump took that dusty old slogan, wiped away the grime of Second World War isolationism, and presented it to the nation as something new — what his friend Tom Barrack called the “diamond” at the heart of the American self-image.

Blue State Blues: Top 9 New Revelations from the Benghazi Hearings

Hillary Clinton was forced to make several damning revelations during hours of sworn testimony at the House Select Committee on Benghazi on Thursday. The media declared that she “won” because she largely retained a placid demeanor. The Democrats declared that she won because they had already decided her political survival mattered more than the truth. Yet there were seven key revelations that emerged from the Benghazi committee.

Blue State Blues: The 17 Worst Ideas in the CA Democratic Platform

Former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee announced his campaign for the Democratic Party nomination for president this past week. One of his top priorities is to convert the United States to the metric system. Doing so, presumably, will make us more “international.” It sounds silly, yet here in California, the most recent Democratic Party Platform officially backs ideas that are just as bad. It can do so, because the opposition is so weak. Here, in non-metric style, are the top 17 worst ideas.

Blue State Blues: FIFA Stands for ‘F— Israel, F— America’

For decades, our global betters have been urging Americans to take more of an interest in soccer. And we have–though not the interest the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) had in mind. This week, the U.S. Department of Justice revealed that 14 FIFA officials had been indicted for corruption. In somewhat related news, FIFA is to vote this weekend on suspending Israel from international soccer because of security-related travel restrictions on some Palestinian players.

Blue State Blues: The Obama Dust Bowl in California

The left has a convenient explanation for California’s severe drought: climate change. Though scientists have yet to make a direct connection, and have suggested instead that the drought is the result of a wind anomaly not related to overall global warming, that has not prevented politicians from putting on their lab coats and declaring their conclusions, demanding not only (sensible) water restrictions but also (irrational) controls on the use of fossil fuels, as if less coal equals more rain.

Blue State Blues: The Political Superiority of Christian Civilization

President Barack Obama told the National Prayer Breakfast that Americans ought to be humble in the fact of radical Islam, because “people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ” as well. In addition to offending much of his audience and some of the nation with his sophomoric moral relativism, the president also obscured a fact that ought to be obvious but is rarely spoken aloud: that as far as the world’s religions go, Christian civilization has done the most to advance freedom.

Blue State Blues: Exclusive–Netanyahu’s Upcoming Speech to Congress (Full Text)

“I am not here to make the case for war. I am not even here to make the case for new sanctions. You know it well enough. On both sides of the aisle, you have leaders who can speak more powerfully than I about why more pressure is needed, after a year of fruitless talks. No—I am here to ask merely that America be what America is: the leader of the free world.”

Blue State Blues: Banning Antisemitism Does Not Help Jews

On Tuesday, French Prime Minister Manuel Valls addressed the National Assembly and gave the most stirring speech on antisemitism since Chaim Herzog literally tore up the “Zionism is racism” resolution at the UN General Assembly in 1975. Valls reiterated his recent argument that
