Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer has been in the news lately. Last week, National Review’s Bench Memos writer Matthew J. Franck reported on an article Breyer wrote for the Journal of Supreme Court History that was riddled with factual errors. The biggest error was that the infamous Dred Scott decision was a 6-3 decision. Any […]

Here’s another reality check for those who think that the current Iranian regime is one we should be reaching out to. Apparently it’s against the law in the Islamic Republic to execute a virgin – the mullahs in Iran know how to fix that. Explaining how he had come to join the volunteer Basiji forces, […]

Bret Stephens has an excellent article in Tuesday’s Wall Street Journal on the curious fact that liberals will defend their values against WASP conservatives, but not against Islamofascists. For whatever else distinguishes Islamism from liberalism, both are remarkably self-absorbed affairs, obsessed with maintaining the purity of their own values no matter what the cost. In […]

Bruce Fierstein over at The New York Observer is channeling the New York Times new public editor Ali bin-Zabar. Ali: This is awful. Horrible. What about the gay wedding announcements? Debbie Dear Ms. T: As you’re no doubt aware of the Koran’s position on homosexuality, let me be clear here: In the future, there will […]

Over the weekend, 15 people were killed in Nigeria and another 11 in Libya as the engineered violence in response to the rather tame Muhammed cartoons continued to claim lives.
