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.

The GOP will now tolerate overt racism

You cannot make this stuff up: President Trump visitsthe Mississippi Civil Rights Museum. However, he enthusiastically endorses Roy Moore, who argued about pre-Civil War America: “I think it was great at the time when families were united even though we had slavery they cared for one another.… Our families were strong, our country […]

Even without Roy Moore, the GOP is in a downward spiral
