Nikki Haley Restores Morality to the UN Mission

A moral authority the United Nations needs.

By standing aside at the end of its term and allowing the United Nations to indulge its obsessive anti-Israel compulsion unobstructed, the Obama administration hoped it had set the tone for future American administrations. The move had a far-reaching effect, but surely not in the way the Obama White House hoped. United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley has demonstrated in her short time at Turtle Bay the moral competence and courage her predecessor lacked. Haley’s laudable mission is to tell the truth about America’s enemies and its adversaries. Her refusal to tolerate this institution’s fanatical preoccupation with Israel is among her most noble efforts in a nascent diplomatic career.

When an addict has no bottom.

On Friday, Anthony Weiner appeared in federal court and pled guilty to the charge that he had inappropriate, sexually-charged communications with a minor. The fall of the once promising politician, a courtier to the Clinton Dynasty and a former Democratic rock star, has been called “sad,” “a tragedy,” and “depressing.” Democrats would do well to devote more serious scrutiny to their roles in enabling a person with pathological compulsions.

Whose side are you on?

Mike Flynn’s ascension to lead the National Security Council was instantly controversial and short-lived, but it has been a continuing source of frustration for the Trump administration. Barely a week goes by without a scandalous new revelation regarding his conduct, but yesterday’s twin revelations were by far the most disturbing.

Of Special Councels—I Mean, Counsels

Commentary Podcast: On Robert Muller and Roger Ailes

The final Commentary podcast of this week finds me, Noah Rothman, and Abe Greenwald arguing over whether the appointment of a special prosecutor might actually be good news for Donald Trump in that it will quiet the scandals down in the short term and allow the administration to get past the 5 pm hour every day without having a boulder fall on its head. I say yes, they say no. We also discuss the death of Roger Ailes and the parlous conduct of Sean Hannity in trying to change the news focus in a way that is a monstrous violation of a family’s grief. Give a listen.
