Jennifer Rubin Washington Post

Jennifer Rubin is a columnist for the Washington Post. She believes in American exceptionalism, limited government, free markets, a secure and thriving Jewish state, defense of freedom and human rights around the world, enforced borders with a generous legal immigration policy, calling things by their proper names (e.g. Islamic fundamentalism), and recapturing vocabulary (a "feminist" is not the same as a pro-choice activist).

Nearly all wisdom is found in the Godfather movies (no, not Part 3!) and the Torah. I'm a dog nut, so I'm a sucker for any dog story. (And for the record, I think Bo is adorable.) I'm a harsh critic of racial preferences, the Middle East "peace process" (which is short on peace-production), Keynesian economics, judicial imperialism and liberal statism.

Since his interview with the American Prospect trashing his colleagues and undercutting Trump’s North Korea policy, it seemed only a matter […]

We cannot forget the unrepentant moral cowards on the right
Scores of Republican politicians, activists and operatives who have supported and defended President Trump will be defined by the choices they made. If they choose to run for office again or be considered for future positions in government or maintain positions of leadership in political life, we think an appropriate series of questions must be […]

Yes, boycott the White House  and Trump properties
President Trump was forced to disband two advisory business councils this week when CEOs left en masse. He has had to drop the idea of an infrastructure council, one suspects, because it would be hard to round up people willing to attend. Now ESPN reports: Kevin Durantsays he will not visit President Donald Trump at […]

Why Ed Gillespie has missed the boat, and his chance to be a leader
Ed Gillespie, who barely slipped by right-wing demagogue Corey Stewart to win the Virginia GOP gubernatorial nomination, is desperately trying to duck the Confederate statue issue, which Stewart used with great success to stir up the GOP base in deep-red areas of the state. Gillespie wrote this week: I know that for many of my […]
