I first met the late Ambassador Faith Whittlesey in Fall 2016, and we quickly got into an argument.
She passed away last month, at the age of 79. Our argument, between two staunch Trump supporters, was about foreign policy.
Numerous obituaries and tributes have been written about Whittlesey and her extraordinary career. She was twice President Reagan’s ambassador to Switzerland, the director of Reagan’s Office of Public Liaison and the most senior woman on Reagan’s White House staff, a Pennsylvania state legislator who helped deliver the state to Reagan in 1980, an ardent pro-lifer and supporter of the Second Amendment, chairman and president of the American Swiss Foundation, and an early and staunch supporter of President Trump.
I got to know her best as a fellow Trump loyalist.

There is real racism in America. It resides at elite institutions like Harvard, not President Trump’s twitter feed.
It has become commonplace for the mainstream media and Trump haters to accuse the president of being racist. Just recently, they found more fodder when President Trump commented on the firing of ABC star Roseanne Barr without condemning Barr’s racist tweet that started the controversy.
Instead, the president griped about ABC’s biased media coverage against him. Trump haters wasted no time to work up their outrage, accusing the president of stooping to a new low, and normalizing racism.
Since Trump declared his candidacy for president in June 2015, he has regularly said things that typical politicians do not say and believe they should not say. As a result, allegations of racism have followed him everywhere.
Amid Trump’s bombast, and at times less-than-dignified public commentary, the real racists have gotten a free pass from those foaming at the mouth against the president.
During the 2016 presidential election, I wrote the following.
[T]he Left is in fact the hotbed of real racism in modern America. Leftists are the ones who have systematically discriminated against students by race in university admissions. They call it affirmative action. They are the ones who insist that every black, Asian, Hispanic, Native American, or other person of color play a role as a token to provide a distinctly ethnic or racial perspective—and that perspective is inherently a liberal one. They call this diversity.
A few weeks ago, the Center for Equal Opportunity, a nonprofit research and educational organization, released a report detailing precisely this type of racism.
Comedian Michelle Wolf has been widely condemned for attacking White House press secretary Sarah Sanders’s appearance and job performance at the White House Correspondents’ dinner over the weekend.
Her monologue, which also derided President Trump and other members of his administration, has been characterized as vulgar, ugly, and not funny.
Amid Wolf’s failed attempts at humor and the ensuing blowback, a disturbing but commonplace phenomenon has received much less attention: Women on the Left, like Wolf, seem to equate vulgarity with female empowerment. As such, they often make crude references to sex and sexual organs in public and celebrate the comments as a sign of liberation.

Ying Ma spoke to students at the University of California at Berkeley about immigration policy on April 11, 2018. The topics covered include chain migration, amnesty, President Donald Trump’s immigration reform proposals, building a wall on the U.S. southern border, and Ying’s personal immigration experience.
The speech was sponsored by the Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute, a national organization that prepares young women for effective leadership and promotes leading conservative women.
A lively Q&A session followed the speech. It can be viewed here.
Last week, President Trump referred to the mayor of Oakland, Calif., Libby Schaaf, as a “disgrace,” and condemned her for spitting at federal efforts to enforce immigration laws. As a former resident of Oakland, I agree with the president.
I grew up in inner-city Oakland and hated it with a passion. Among other things, I hated the regular breakdown of law and order as well as the city’s casual disregard for the well-being of law-abiding citizens.
Schaaf’s recent rhetoric and actions offer the entire country a glimpse of Oakland’s recurring dysfunction.
