The Laboratory Of Bad Ideas

The Laboratory Of Bad Ideas

H.L. Mencken once wrote that “every election is an advance auction of stolen goods.” Perhaps no polity better illustrates this maxim than New York, where the wealth of taxpaying citizens is routinely plundered  in order to sate the avarice of large, concentrated blocs of voters, i.e. looters. We’ve become inured to this political cycle,...

Executive Decisions

The White House has been relatively tight-lipped about its deliberations, re: Antonin Scalia’s replacement, but we already know that his death will irrevocably impact a host of Supreme Court cases this term.

An Isolated Incident

An Isolated Incident

It’s remarkable how many lone wolves share the same religious and ideological worldview as 80% of the world’s terrorists. The latest jihadist attack is less than 2 days old and we can already detect the same dismal pattern of official obfuscation and denial at work.

Post-New Hampshire Analysis

    Even though the political obituaries of the Clinton dynasty are already being written, it should be noted that due to the undemocratic nature of the Democratic Party primary process she is still ahead of her socialist opponent, Senator Sanders. So don’t expect Hillary to obligingly accept another unexpected defeat at the hands...

Live Free or Die

Live Free or Die

  Update: According to CNN projections Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders have emerged victorious from tonight’s primary. Notch one for the notoriously inaccurate polling industry!  We’ll see whether New Hampshire lives up to its state motto later tonight, although the pickings are rather slim in this regard. You can follow the undoubtedly dubious exit polling data...

Genuine Debate

All too often the choices offered to the American public come down to differences of packaging. Would you rather vote for the interventionist, open borders, chubby white guy, or the interventionist, open borders, svelte Hispanic male?
