      Chronicler of Evil

      Anne Applebaum has written a new book, Red Famine: Stalin’s War on Ukraine. It is about the “terror-famine” of 1932–34. She has also written Gulag: A History and Iron Curtain: The Crushing of Eastern Europe, 1944–1956. As you can see, she does not pick the cheeriest of subjects. But she picks important ones, and she is utterly authoritative...

      Putin Isn’t Interested in Helping America

      Toward the end of his twelve-day trip to Asia, President Trump tweeted, “When will all the haters and fools out there realize that having a good relationship with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing. There [sic] always playing politics — bad for our country. I want to solve North Korea, Syria, Ukraine, terrorism, and Russia can greatly...

      Mueller’s First Indictments

      Robert Mueller has made his first strike. He indicted former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and his associate Rick Gates, and reached a plea agreement with former Trump foreign-policy adviser George Papadopoulos. Between 2006 and 2015, Manafort and Gates worked as lobbyists for a Ukrainian political party that is a cat’s paw of the...

      A Guide to Understanding the Manafort Indictment

      For once, the Twitter speculation was mainly correct.

      Communism, Memory and ‘Forgetting’

      Writing in the New York Times, Bret Stephens takes aim at the curious mix of indulgence, amnesia and ignorance that envelops the subject of Communism. How many know the name of Lazar Kaganovich, one of Stalin’s principal henchmen in the [genocidal Ukrainian] famine [of 1932/33]? What about other chapters large and small in the history of...

      This week I began to worry that Senator Lindsey Graham isn’t as happy as he should be. He’s always been affable. And, rare for Washington, he’s sometimes intentionally funny. But I think he could have more job satisfaction. Graham is a long-serving member of the Senate Armed Services Committee and a committed hawk. He supports...
