A Corrupt Media and the Shameless Bidens

In his newly released memoirs, U.S. President Joe Biden’s son Hunter presents himself as a victim, magically transforming his copious vices into virtues. In Spectator US, Dominic Green tells how a colluding media spins the story of a corrupt President and his sleazy son into one of absolution and redemption.

Our Woke Pope’s Deafening Silence

Pope Francis’ silence over the dismantling of a Catholic Church in China is unsettling. Long-time Vatican-watcher Damian Thompson wonders if the Pope could be an agent of Beijing.

In Spiked, Joel Kotkin cites statistics refuting this ill-conceived telling of American history and discusses the threats the racialized narrative poses to social peace.
