Globalist Jonah Goldberg, the George W. Bush-era neoconservative who has become a pariah in his own movement for opposing President Donald Trump, is officially out at the National Review.
Goldberg penned the final edition of his “G-File” weekly blog that will be published by National Review last week where he waxed poetic about the good ol’ days of the Republican when the CIA was completely in charge, endless wars were the top priority, and civility was fully intact.
“There are so many friends and colleagues I am grateful for that if I start naming them, I’ll run the risk of forgetting someone or using up this entire “news”letter calling the roll of my indebtedness,” Goldberg wrote.
He made note that he will remain on as a fellow for the National Review Institute, despite his blog no longer being published by the formerly influential magazine that is now out-of-touch with the Republican mainstream.
Goldberg closed his final blog with a defense of David French, a fellow ‘Never Trumper’ pundit who has morphed from a neoconservative to a classical liberal in recent years, as he argues with Sohrab Ahmari about the necessity of liberal values.
Ahmari wrote an article, “Against David French-ism” in First Things where he argued that French and his intellectual ilk need to stay irrelevant for conservatism to rebound in society.
“With a kind of animal instinct, Trump understood what was missing from mainstream (more or less French-ian) conservatism. His instinct has been to shift the cultural and political mix, ever so slightly, away from autonomy-above-all toward order, continuity, and social cohesion,” Ahmari wrote.
“He believes that the political community—and not just the church, family, and individual—has its own legitimate scope for action. He believes it can help protect the citizen from transnational forces beyond his control,” he added.
French’s liberal values include allowing abusive predators to groom children at perverse ‘Drag Queen Story Hour’ events throughout the country:
This is the key question. To ban drag queen story hour, you have to adjust the law, and adjusting the law would involve intruding upon 1) local control of the library; 2) freedom of association; and 3) freedom of speech — and that’s just to start.

Goldberg stands by French for opposing the new breed of conservatives who he alleges believe “the bizarre notion that social conservatives can win the culture war if they lean into Trumpism, nationalism, and some of the worst caricatures of the Christian right.”
“The enemy here is the state, because by aggrandizing to itself the power to tell people how to live, people put all of the blame on a far-off government in Washington — or even more distant “globalists” — for their problems,” Goldberg wrote.
While Goldberg plays libertarian now in tactical fashion to oppose Trump, he wasn’t very libertarian during the George W. Bush era when he supported the Iraq war, the Patriot Act and the torture of suspected terrorists.
Goldberg won’t be leaving the media scene though, as he has a new anti-Trump publication in the works teaming with Steve Hayes, who was formerly editor-in-chief of failed, bankrupt Weekly Standard magazine. Despite their lack of public support, neocon ‘Never Trumpers’ have friends in high places.
Fake News Stands with Disgraced Masturbator Jeffrey Toobin After He Exposed Himself to Professional Colleagues
This is fine behavior, according to liberals.
One day after embarrassing news dropped regarding CNN propagandist Jeffrey Toobin whipping it out and masturbating during a Zoom call, the fake news is already jumping to the pervert’s defense.
Jonathan Zimmerman of the New York Daily News has written a pro-Toobin op/ed claiming that Americans are only dismayed by his indecent exposure because of their puritan attitudes on sex and masturbation.
“We Americans love to talk — and talk, and talk — about sex. But there’s one topic that remains taboo, and Toobin is paying the price for it,” Zimmerman wrote.
Even though Zimmerman noted that Toobin has a history of questionable sexual behavior, he claimed without evidence that it is Americans who are wrong for chiding Toobin for pulling out his member and flogging it on camera in front of his journalist colleagues.
“According to a 2016 survey, 95% of men and 81% of women in America have masturbated. Yet in the same poll, over half of respondents said they felt uncomfortable talking about it,” Zimmerman wrote. “So we joke about it, instead, which relieves our anxieties but reinforces the taboo. Witness the outpouring of juvenile humor over the past two days about “Toobin his own horn,” his “sticky situation,” and so on.”
“News flash: Toobin masturbates. But I’m guessing that you do the same, dear reader. Maybe you should stop feeling weird and guilty about that. Then we can all stop making fun of Jeffrey Toobin,” he concluded.
Big League Politics reported on Toobin’s perilous situation on Monday without any of Zimmerman’s bizarre apologetics:
A liberal journalist and CNN legal analyst has been suspended from his position at New Yorker magazine after he appears to have exposed his penis during a Zoom call.
Jeffrey Toobin reportedly revealed his genitalia during a teleconference call between New Yorker employees and personnel of a New York radio station. He says that the exposure was totally unintentional, and that he wasn’t aware his camera feed was streaming to other people.
The CNN pundit, who is known for delivering Russian collusion conspiracy theories, apologized for the wardrobe malfunction in a statement provided to Vice. “I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera. I apologize to my wife, family, friends and co-workers.”
“I believed I was not visible on Zoom. I thought no one on the Zoom call could see me. I thought I had muted the Zoom video,” said Toobin.
New Yorker spokeswoman Natalie Raabe went on to confirm that Toobin has been suspended as the matter is investigated. A CNN representative also confirmed that the media personality is on “time off” from on-air appearances with the channel…
Vice is now reporting that Toobin was caught outright masturbating during the zoom conference call.
“The two sources described a juncture in the election simulation when there was a strategy session, and the Democrats and Republicans went into their respective break out rooms for about 10 minutes. At this point, they said, it seemed like Toobin was on a second video call. The sources said that when the groups returned from their break out rooms, Toobin lowered the camera. The people on the call said they could see Toobin touching his penis. Toobin then left the call. Moments later, he called back in, seemingly unaware of what his colleagues had been able to see, and the simulation continued.”
Toobin probably won’t even lose his job over behavior that would likely land those of us who do not have a privileged media perch behind bars. The lack of virtue and common decency among modern journalists is evident.
