Waving The Bloody Shirt

Waving The Bloody Shirt

That there has been another gruesome public murder, whose details have been broadcast across the globe, is no longer a novelty, unfortunately. The fact that it was being exploited within hours by the usual cast of characters, who want to shape this horrific event into a narrative of intolerant, anti-European, anti-multicultural bigoted Britain is not...

Bloody Borders

Although there have been numerous global jihadist assaults since my last post-including an unsuccessful attack carried out by a Somali Muslim immigrant in a Texas town forced to accept the resettlement of refugees and the beheading of a Canadian hostage taken by Abu Sayyaf-it’s worth reflecting upon the atrocity which took place at the Pulse...

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...

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.

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...

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...

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...

Leave Now (The Case For Brexit)

Pat Condell, in his own inimitable way, cuts to the heart of the issue. Although we’ve spent the better part of a week demonstrating how Internet monopolies like Google and Facebook are subtly or blatantly manipulating the type of news we ingest, the truth is that there are much larger, more pernicious forces at...

Crowdsourcing Bias

Crowdsourcing Bias

Perhaps the greatest part of living in the current year is the access our civilization has to a virtually limitless supply of information. Although many refuse to take advantage of it, the fact is that we are living during an era which is unprecedented for acquiring and transmitting knowledge at light speed, which I-as...
