The Issue: Suppression of The Post’s story on evidence of corrupt deals on Hunter Biden’s laptop.
The true collusion that exists in our country is comprised of Democratic left-wingers, Big Tech, mainstream media, social media and well-to-do Hollywood and academic snobs, coupled with spine­less politicians who remain silent for fear of cancellation (“They got away with it,” Oct. 13).
The Biden machine and all associated with it will always “get away with it.

Boomer fauxminists like Joy Behar exemplify just why Monica Lewinsky had to tell her own story

The most surprising part of FX’s hotly anticipated anthology American Crime Story: Impeachment is not the story, as the retelling of the scandal that took down Bill Clinton tells no new detail that hasn’t been burned into the country’s consciousness for more than two decades. The real revelation comes from Monica Lewinsky herself — namely just how the fictionalization, on which she serves as a producer, reflects her own interpretation of events.
For half her lifetime, Boomer women have called themselves feminists while calling Monica a slut in the same sentence.

How Cobie Smulders Transformed Into Evil Ann Coulter

For fans of the hit CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother, Cobie Smulders will always be synonymous with Robin Scherbatsky, the genial journalist formerly known as “Robin Sparkles” and titular mother of Ted Mosby’s kids. But to cinemagoers, she is Maria Hill, the high-kicking S.H.I.E.L.D. agent helping the superpowered Avengers cancel the apocalypse, over and over again. Both contingents will undoubtedly be thrown for a loop by the Canadian-born actress’ latest on-screen transformation: a morally bankrupt narcissist by the name of Ann Coulter.

Impeachment: American Crime Story Has an Unlikely Main Character

Here’s how much I enjoyed the first seven out of 10 episodes of FX’s Impeachment: American Crime Story: As soon as I ran out of screeners, I spent Labor Day weekend marathoning all 10 episodes of The People v. O.J. Simpson, the original, critically acclaimed American Crime Story miniseries that aired in 2016 and that I’d never gotten around to watching. Both shows dramatize real events from the 1990s that made for great TV at the time, and both make for great TV in their own right.

Column: How the war on terror came to look like a culture war among ourselves

I got back to the U.S. from my honeymoon on Sept. 10, 2001. My wife went straight home to Washington, D.C., to start her new job at the Justice Department. I went to Washington state, where we’d gotten married, to retrieve our dog Cosmo, whom we’d left with family.
I was in a hotel room in Pendleton, Ore., when I saw the first reports of a plane hitting the World Trade Center. I used something called AOL Instant Messenger to tell my co-workers to turn on the TV.
