Rather than sit through the inevitable anticlimax which is Sir Hillary’s acceptance speech, why not watch the documentary which crystallizes just how nakedly corrupt the would-be First Family is? Read More »
Even as events conspire to make hash of the narrative contrived by Hillary Clinton and the national media, i.e. Vladimir Putin’s exposure of the awfulness of the Democratic Party is the true threat to American democracy, the politically correct variety show in Philadelphia proceeds apace. Before tonight is over you will have endured the entire spectrum of Democrat hideousness, from the not quite prime-time address by career limousine Marxist Bill de Blasio, to the condescending stylings of golf aficionado Michael Bloomberg, to the capstone of the evening, an address by the POTUS himself, Barack Obama.

If you’re a Democratic nominee with no charisma, a closet filled with potentially embarrassing skeletons, and a constituency which is largely fictive, having open borders shills in charge of the 3rd most popular website on the planet, which hundreds of millions people use as their daily news feed, doesn’t exactly hurt your cause.

Very rarely do I find myself in agreement with Bernie Sanders supporters, but I support this sentiment wholeheartedly. Hillary Clinton belongs in a federal institution, but not the White House. It turns out that Chris Christie fans are not the only ones who feel that Mrs. Clinton deserves to brought to justice. Read More »
It seems as if the alternative media has rallied around the flag, which in Hillary’s case was probably purchased by benefactors like Goldman Sachs and the Gulf Arab slave state of Qatar. After all, who can resist GIRL POWER, even if it’s marshaled on behalf of someone who’s spent much of her career destroying the reputations of Bill Clinton’s comfort women? To get a sense of the cognitive dissonance at work, it’s worth reading this week’s Village Voice, which all but admits its preferred candidate is an inveterate liar, albeit one who can answer that 3 A.M. call!
By the way, does anyone else recognize the absurdity of Clinton backers running a variation on an ad which was universally panned-from a race which she lost-in order to lambast the purported shortcomings of Donald Trump? If there are any calls being made to a Clinton White House after midnight, I’m almost certain they will be made at the behest of sleazy foreign donors who want a return on their investment. That is indeed the purpose of the single greatest legal money laundering scheme on the planet, one which would make even El Chapo green with envy. Read More »

The biggest news of the RNC thus far has been, without question, Ted Cruz’s magnanimous endorsement of Ted Cruz. It’s too early to predict whether using a national platform to demean the choice of 14 million Republican voters is a wise political strategy going forward, but one thing we can say is that it’s a very Cruzian maneuver, as former Bush spokesmen Ari Fleischer pointed out. Whatever you might think of the Bushes-and I’ve made it very clear that I feel their beliefs have been ultimately destructive to both the Republican Party and the country-they have a certain ethic. As dreadful as I believe Jeb’s policies would have been, he at least has the integrity not to pretend that he shares the same values with Donald Trump. Read More »
One of the intellectual curiosities New Yorkers, particularly those of a libertarian bent, have enjoyed for over 3 decades is Junto. A monthly gathering which explores the political and economic issues of our time, it’s hosted by Victor Niederhoffer, a trader and writer who brings his own unique perspective to each stimulating debate and/or lecture held at the General Society’s library building.
Next month will be a special occasion, as Mr. Neiderhoffer will be the featured speaker in a discussion of the Shibboleths of the Market. You can RSVP at the previous link if you’d like to join him and others for a fascinating lecture-I personally recommend going to at least one Junto in your life-time. In September, another completely different debate series, called The Soho Forum, will begin. I hope to see a few of my readers at what promises to be some stimulating public conversations in the future.
The despicable whitewashing of Hillary Clinton’s malfeasance continues to generate outrage in the unlikeliest places, including the usually ridiculous Huffington Post. The exoneration of the former Secretary of State at the hands of someone who has shown a penchant for overlooking the crimes of Clintonian public officials has raised the hackles of people across the political spectrum.

Today marks the 240th anniversary of the moment America officially cleaved itself from its colonial master, Great Britain. Although there are a number of ways to commemorate this occasion, I would suggest learning more about the events which led up to this momentous historical decision. To that end, you can peruse my recommended reading list here. Read More »
Even as the collectivist enterprise in Venezuela implodes, spreading misery, resentment, and hopelessness among the 30 million people suffering under Chavismo-whose tales of woe are easily accessible-there are those who refuse to acknowledge the destruction their ideas have caused. The allure of Marxism, in spite of its astronomical body count, to public intellectuals and elite opinion-makers cannot be underestimated, in spite of its dismal track record.
One of the more astonishing moments during last month’s lecture in favor of open borders occurred when I brought up the Rotherham outrages, which the speaker-perhaps out of ignorance-declared to be a “recent” phenomenon within Europe. Actually, the systemic kidnapping, rape, sex grooming, and beating of white, Christian, English girls by Muslim Pakistanis-and the coverup of these abuses by the political class and law enforcement-has been occurring for well over 2 decades. Although it’s seductive to believe the Islamic predation sweeping Europe is a recent phenomenon-an aberration caused by the current political turmoil in the Middle East-that is simply not the case.
