The latest no-substance scandal to preoccupy Washington — the emails of Donald Trump Jr. — is having no impact on his father’s job approval in any of the recent polls. Rasmussen Reports, the only poll to survey likely voters, has Trump’s job approval at 45 percent (July 9-11), exactly the same as it has been

Lee Harvey Oswald hid behind the sixth-floor window of the Texas School Book Depository building as he aimed his rifle at JFK. But hiding in the grassy knoll ahead was possibly another hidden assassin closing in for the kill shot. It was the first possibly anonymous assassination of a president in U.S. history.

The really odd thing about Donald Trump’s first 100 days is that, Euclid notwithstanding, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. The record of Trump’s 100 days is much better than the sum of his actual achievements. And, in a way, that was to be expected. It is the idea of Trump

If you thought the mischaracterization of the Benghazi attack was an underhanded way to influence the 2012 election, fasten your seat belt. President Obama has a new one up his sleeve. He is so desperate to stop Vladimir Putin from releasing Hillary Clinton’s deleted emails that Russia may have hacked that he is literally threatening

Thinks look bleak right now for Ted Cruz. And for Donald Trump. Both will have to pass through a narrow needle to thread their way to the nomination. But one of them will do it. There will be no white knight, and John Kasich’s fantasies of a third or fourth ballot nomination are just that,

Donald Trump’s rise and resilience is unique in our modern political history. He seems almost to be the default setting for the Republican primary voter. If he screws up on television, a few supporters leave him for a few weeks. If Ted Cruz spends millions on ads and has every endorsement in the state (Wisconsin),
