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.

Faith leaders need to shape up
President George W. Bush’s speech on Thursday left the political and media world buzzing about his indictment of what has become the quartet of Trumpian “ideas” — nativism, protectionism, isolationism and xenophobia. These are not so much ideas but ill-conceived grievances embodied in slogans and impulses designed to stir white grievance in the United States. […]

How do you argue for Roy Moore?
Editor at large of the Weekly Standard and #NeverTrump warrior Bill Kristol challenged Republicans via Twitter on Wednesday: 1. Doug Jones would be a better U.S. senator than Roy Moore. 2. Moore as a senator would be a constant embarrassment to the GOP 3. Moore’s defeat wouldn’t deprive GOP of Senate majority. So why should […]

Does everyone become intellectually corrupted working in this administration?  “CIA Director Mike Pompeo declared Thursday that U.S. intelligence agencies determined that Russias interference in the 2016 American presidential election did not alter the outcome, a statement that distorted spy agency findings. . . . His comment suggested falsely that a report released by U.S. […]
