Contributor Post Created with Sketch. The National Conservatism Conference in Rome

 

Friends, I don’t usually do reporting, but I made an exception for the second National Conservatism Conference in Rome where I finally met our own @melissaosullivan! I don’t remember anyone else from Ricochet being there, so, as I said, I’ll do the reporting.

Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Bibi Was Trump Before Trump

 

Populist winds took down the Clintons and are now taking down Merkel, Macron, and May. Bibi, who is cruising to reelection (assuming he can stay out of jail) doesn’t have to worry about being taken down by nationalist populist insurgents because he is the nationalist populist insurgent who took down the establishment. He just did it earlier. Bibi was Trump before Trump.

Bibi and Trump have some similarities in style and character.

When you finish listening to all the Ricochet podcasts, listen to Yoram Hazony on Matt Lewis and the News, discussing Is Reason Overrated? Anyone trying to understand the Trump and post-Trump eras should start with Hazony’s writings (such as What Is Conservatism?). More
