Whither The Right?

Whither The Right?

Correction: As the commenter below points out, Jason Richwine is a regular contributor to National Review Online. We regret the error.  One of the benefits of the Trump campaign, regardless of one’s thoughts on the merits of a Trump presidency, is its exposure of the conservative establishment. The irony of an undisciplined and at...

The Sword Of Damocles (Will Hillary Be Indicted?)

The Sword Of Damocles (Will Hillary Be Indicted?)

Expanding upon yesterday’s post, it should be noted that there were several subjects covered during Michael Mukasey’s talk, particularly the question and answer session that followed, which had little to do with our government’s malfeasance in combating international and domestic Islamic terrorism. One topic of keen interest was the ongoing FBI criminal investigation into...

Terror and Liberalism (Judge Mukasey Speaks)

Terror and Liberalism (Judge Mukasey Speaks)

  Most of you familiar with the work of Michael Mukasey probably remember him as the federal judge who granted Jose Padilla, an Al Qaeda agent designated an enemy combatant by the Bush administration, access to counsel during his detention in a U.S. military brig. Others might recall his refusal to declare waterboarding synonymous...

Executive Overreach (Intelligence Squared Debate)

Executive Overreach (Intelligence Squared Debate)

The threat of an imperial presidency constantly looms within the American psyche, especially now that the ability of the federal government to intrude into our personal lives appears to be unlimited. However, this administration’s exploitation of its explicit powers-and arrogation of powers it was never granted under our Constitutional framework-is unprecedented in the context of...

The Red Death

The Red Death

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...

Justice For Rotherham

Justice For Rotherham

  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...

Stand And Deliver (Confronting Leftist Banditry)

Stand And Deliver (Confronting Leftist Banditry)

To paraphrase the late Joe Sobran, hate speech is any speech liberals hate. Now that leading Web giants and the EU superstate have cemented a pact to target this pernicious threat to civilization, we’ll all have a better understanding of what exactly the egalitarian left considers to be hateful. The question remains, what do...

Feel The Bern

If you wanted to view a cross-section of the individuals whom Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are trying to enlist in their cause, you could do worse than visit a Donald Trump rally, where the hatred and viciousness of revanchist Mexicans and Hispanic gang members-or Dreamers, as Hillary calls them-is on full display. The...

Newt Gingrich Takes Your Questions

Newt Gingrich Takes Your Questions

  Yesterday saw yet another series of attacks upon peaceful Donald Trump supporters by violent, open borders Marxists. Predominately, although not exclusively Mexican. Naturally, this prompted the news media-with a few notable exceptions-to castigate the people who were peaceably assembling and/or dissemble about who was responsible for this violence. Hats off to the cretinous...

The Matrix

The Matrix

I think we’ve established that those who control new media, our primary means of collective communication and social interaction, share neither our beliefs nor goals. The decision by Internet behemoths to enforce draconian abrogations of speech at the behest of the European Union merely crystallizes what we’ve known for some time, i.e. Mark Zuckerberg...
