    Liberals scoff when conservatives denounce Obama and his policies as socialist. After all, they argue, Obama isn’t Stalin and America is nothing like the Soviet Union. But socialism doesn’t always resemble the Berlin Wall or the Iron Curtain, as National Review editor Kevin Williamson proves in his new book, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Socialism.

    There wasn’t a transgender City and the Pillar, or even a transgender Will and Grace. Hollywood has always had a soft spot for transvestite comedy, but mainly in the context of broad situational comedy well insulated from any messy sexual questions: Robin Williams cross-dresses to be close to his children, Shawn and Marlon Wayans because they are dedicated FBI agents.

    "Ideas have consequences” is a phrase conservatives of a certain age may associate with Rush Limbaugh. Before that, it was associated with the philosopher Richard M. Weaver, who published a famous book by that title in 1948, arguing that the Western world was in decline because William of Ockham convinced Europeans that there is no such thing as absolute truth, hence Buchenwald, Communism, and the oeuvre of Jackson Pollock.

    For working-class white guys who haven’t found their way into good jobs in the energy economy or the related manufacturing and construction booms that have reverberated throughout the oil patch, who aren’t college-bound or in possession of the skills, things aren’t looking so great: While much of the rest of the world gets healthier and longer-lived, the average life expectancy for white American men without college educations is declining.

    Hillary Clinton has this weird thing she does: She forgets to smile until a half a second after she has entered a room. If you keep your eyes open, you can see her do it and practically hear the hoists and pulleys and whatnot lurching squeakily into action to pull that dour mug into its familiar for public-consumption rictus. Maybe she’s feeling antsy: She’s under federal investigation, and the Brooklyn Navy Yard, scene of the New York Democratic-primary debate, used to house a federal prison.

    An immigrant of Middle Eastern origin. A gay club. An act of violence aimed at killing or maiming untold dozens of people. Neither the word “Muslim” nor the word “Islam” appears in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer’s report on Musab Masmari’s 2014 arson attack on a Seattle gay club. But there’s a lot that isn’t in that article, including the fact that the arsonist, later arrested with a one-way ticket to Turkey in his pocket, had served as a “cultural ambassador” from the Arabic speaking world.

    In The Fractured Republic, Yuval Levin argues that conservatives suffer from a paralyzing nostalgia for the 1980s, in which they detected an echo of the moral certainty and economic dynamism of the 1950s. But some remember the 1980s rather differently: The US divorce rate peaked in 1980, and children in elementary school in the Reagan years were the first generation in which the question "Are your parents still married?" was both common and of intense interest.

    A campaign against business subsidies - conservative warfare on corporate welfare - would present Republicans with an easy win: What other issue would energize free-market conservatives while stoking the sympathies of some traditional liberal Democrats, tapping into the new populist energy behind such figures as Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders while acting in the service of principled conservatism? None - so why can’t Republicans get their act together on corporate welfare?

    The news of the past several weeks has provided a reminder of the wisdom of proposals for mandatory body-cams: Bill Clinton may very well soon be wandering around the White House without adequate supervision, and somebody, somewhere, is going to need to keep an eye on him.
