Speak No Evil

For those of you who had been laboring under the impression that the only Western leaders committed to stamping out problematic free expression reside in Europe-exemplified by Frau Merkel’s Stasi-directed campaign against anti-Islamic thoughtcrime-I have some troubling news. Australia, a country once known for its insouciant attitude towards political correctness and multiculturalism, has become...

Clash of Cultures (The West’s Reckoning)

Clash of Cultures (The West’s Reckoning)

Update: Yes, I realize that this image macro has a typo, but there’s only so much proper grammar you can expect from people on the Internet.  One of the more  arresting scenes in Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s memoir takes place when she visits her dying father in a London hospital. A man that despised the...

Convention Theatrics (The Final Day of the RNC)

Convention Theatrics (The Final Day of the RNC)

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...

Snap Judgment: Trump-Pence

Snap Judgment: Trump-Pence

Some initial thoughts: -Without being able to peer into the mind of Donald Trump, it’s hard to discern what prompted him to pick Governor Pence. If we take his words at face value, party unity was one of the primary motivating factors. That undoubtedly played a role, although I doubt it will sway Republicans...

Race To The Bottom

Race To The Bottom

So many have opined on Black Lives Matter over the past 3 years that it’s difficult to imagine anything novel being said or written about this organization. Nevertheless, I feel compelled to add my 2 cents, if for no other reason than the fact that I’ve never tackled this subject before on this website...

Hillary Skates (Post-Comey Presser Web Roundup)

Hillary Skates (Post-Comey Presser Web Roundup)

Update: Jill Stein, Green Party standard-bearer, drops a pipe bomb.  The plot thickens.  A Clinton supporter explains what’s wrong with this decision.  A less than enthusiastic appraisal of Hillary’s problems by a liberal columnist in D.C.  Spic ‘n’ Span.  He said, she said.  Relevant. One of the most remarkable admissions during this press conference was...

Hillary’s Folly

Hillary’s Folly

The Benghazi Report has finally been published, you can read it in its entirety here, which means we’ve been treated to some predictable political reactions, including this illuminating headline from the New York Times. Leaving aside the predictable spin from Hillary boosters in the fourth estate, one of my main problems with the national debate...

Conservatism And Its Discontents

Conservatism And Its Discontents

  A few additional notes regarding George Hawley’s fascinating look at dissent within the right: Notwithstanding the Trump Ascendancy, his belief that moderate libertarianism-or conservatarianism, as some have dubbed it-will exert the greatest influence over mainstream conservatism in the years ahead holds some merit. The disdain the modern conservative movement has for genuinely libertarian...

Breaking News…

Breaking News…

Update: Madame Hillary weighs in.  The President still has no plans for his administration to actually enforce the law. What a relief!  If you didn’t realize how important this presidential election is, the Supreme Court reminded you earlier today with 2 immensely consequential decisions. The first upholds Judge Hanen’s injunction against Barack Obama’s patently unconstitutional...

Smoke And Mirrors

Smoke And Mirrors

For those who were under the impression that the obfuscation and manipulation of the Justice Department ended with the departure of Eric Holder, I have some unpleasant news for you. Loretta Lynch, persecutor of Islamophobes, has decided to release a heavily redacted transcript of Omar Mateen’s 911 calls during his massacre at Pulse Nightclub...
