A front-page story in last Friday’s Wall Street Journal showed just how unpopular Barack Obama has become in one surprising constituency: Democrats who are running for office.

Editorial demagoguery against "predatory" lending might well be called predatory journalism — taking advantage of other people's ignorance of economics to score ideological points.

A left-wing group called the Agenda Project Action Fund boasted that it is launching “a multi-pronged blitzkrieg attack that lays blame for the Ebola crisis exactly where it belongs — at the feet of the Republican lawmakers.”

They are doing it again. “They” are the war-party politicians, Democrats and Republicans. “It” is scaring you into supporting another war in the Middle East.

When I wrote the articles compiled in my book Now Tell Me I Was Wrong, few Americans were listening. Some called me crazy — a radical, a conspiracy theorist, a fringe nut. Then I started reading editorials in newspapers and commentaries by others who had finally figured it out. And those articles started to sound like mine.
