About a decade ago, as I was on my way to meet Edward Lampert for the first time, a friend said to me about the turnaround that Mr. Lampert was attempting of Sears and Kmart: "It may fail, but if it does, it will be a noble failure." Today's Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing for Sears Holdings has generated a lot of discussion, accurate and inaccurate, about the "failure" aspect of it. But a true account of what has happened requires some notice, too, of the "noble" aspect of it. For the...

"Brexit deal hopes dashed." So reads the headline in the London Sun, after Brexit minister Dominic Raab flies to Brussels for emergency talks with EU officials. Disappointment springs from the fount of so much angst for the United Kingdom Ireland. Is the promise of Brexit coming undone? Much ado about nothing, methinks. Don't get me wrong. Britain's successful uncoupling from the European Union is very much a concern. It's just that this latest crisis isn't really much of a crisis...

Does America need a new "test oath" for our officials and members of Congress? That question begs to be asked as talk spreads among Democrats that the Supreme Court and even Donald Trump's presidency are "illegitimate." The Left is being driven crazy by fact that Mr. Trump emerged as president despite having lost the popular vote. The press is fizzing with talk of a new civil war.

Since this week's surprise announcement that Nikki Haley would depart by year's end, everyone wants to know who'll replace America's United Nations ambassador who was first dismissed, then hated, then feared, and eventually appreciated, heck, even loved (at least by some). The answer, obviously, is up to the never-predictable President Trump, so most names bandied about are speculative, with many driven by wishful thinking. So here's a wish: Christopher Burnham. Never heard of him? Y...

Call it Trump meets the Yeezy Effect the President's astounding lunch for Kanye West. The rapper sat in the Oval Office on the visitor's side of the Resolute Desk, across from the leader of the Free World. Suddenly Mr. West went into an epic rant in favor of Trump style capitalism and all that it could mean for minorities in this country. Drudge was all over it. What an only-in-the-Trump-Era moment.

It's starting to look like Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the Republican leadership would be wise to move quickly to replace Senator Grassley as chairman of the Judiciary Committee. That's because the Iowan has indicated he won't hear a nominee to the Supreme Court if President Trump sends the Senate one in 2020, the last year of his current term.

Nikki Haley's tour as ambassador to the United Nations is going to be studied for years and it's not hard to understand why. She's upstaged just about everyone who ever had anything to do with the place. Here's a woman who emerged out of left . . . pardon, right . . . field to land a plum Cabinet-level position. She was mocked for having what the New York Times called "zero foreign-policy experience." It turns out, though, that the very thing leftist pundits...

This is impetuous, but I think the electoral map has changed with the Kavanaugh decision. The Democrats avoided direct confrontation and tried to sandbag the nominee by a late allegation of sexual assault from 30 years before. They gambled that whipping up post-Weinstein militant-feminist support would induce the president to say something outrageous that would split his party and drench him in another momentary shower of confected outrage, such as during the partial migration ban, the...
