Victor Davis Hanson: Silicon Valley billionaires’ donations protects them from liberal muckrakers

Progressives used to pressure U.S. corporations to cut back on outsourcing and on the tactic of building their products abroad to take advantage of inexpensive foreign workers. During the 2012 election, President Obama attacked Mitt Romney as a potential illiberal “outsourcer in chief” for investing in companies that went overseas in search of cheap labor. […]

Victor Davis Hanson: California wealth inequality makes state crack up

Corporate profits at California-based transnational corporations such as Apple, Facebook and Google are hitting record highs. California housing prices from La Jolla to Berkeley along the Pacific Coast can top $1,000 a square foot.

Victor Davis Hanson: 2016 election strengthened American identity

Victor Davis Hanson: 2016 election strengthened American identity

The startling 2016 presidential election weakened the notion of tribal identity rather than a shared American identity. And it may have begun a return to the old idea of unhyphenated Americans. Many working-class voters left the Democratic Party and voted for a billionaire reality-TV star in 2016 because he promised jobs and economic growth first, […]

Victor Davis Hanson: Russian disinformation has fooled America

About a year ago, Donald Trump Jr. met with a mysterious Russian lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya.

Victor Davis Hanson: North Korean nuclear weapons closer to reality

North Korea recently test-launched a long-range missile capable of reaching Alaska. When North Korea eventually builds a missile capable of reaching the U.S. mainland, it will double down on its well-known shakedown of feigning indifference to American deterrence while promising to take out Los Angeles, San Francisco or Seattle unless massive aid is delivered to […]

Victor Davis Hanson: Liberal plots to remove Trump are backfiring

Victor Davis Hanson: Liberal plots to remove Trump are backfiring

The progressive strategy of investigating President Trump nonstop for Russian collusion or obstruction of justice or witness tampering so far has produced no substantial evidence of wrongdoing.

Victor Davis Hanson: America now the world’s oldest democracy

The United States is currently the world’s oldest democracy. But America is no more immune from collapse than were some of history’s most stable and impressive consensual governments. Fifth-century Athens, Republican Rome, Renaissance Florence and Venice, and many of the elected governments of early 20th-century Western European states eventually destroyed themselves, went bankrupt or were […]

Victor Davis Hanson: Globalism crushes traditional lifestyles

PRAGUE | The West that birthed globalization is now in an open revolt over its own offspring, from here in Eastern Europe to southern Ohio.
