Romney Speaks

Romney Speaks

  Update: Just a few quick impressions, 1. Romney’s most substantive critique of the Trump campaign-arguably, the only one highlighted in this speech-revolved around Donald Trump’s support for high import tariffs. It should be noted that even some of his harshest critics don’t believe he’ll follow through on his promises, re: retaliatory trade measures....

Super Tuesday News Roundup

The most notable development leading up to today’s pivotal primaries is, of course, the raft of prominent Donald Trump endorsements, including those of former governor Jan Brewer and immigration stalwart Senator Jeff Sessions. Why the latter decided to endorse Trump rather than his Texas colleague is open to debate, although Mark Krikorian-a Cruz supporter-has...

Law of the Jungle

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? The media’s relentless denial of the facts and refusal to acknowledge alternative points of view only entrenches the...

Swedish Hospitality

Swedish Hospitality

Aside from Germany, there is no nation in Europe which has had to cope with a larger share of refugees than Sweden. Apparently, the socialist government-whose popularity has hit a record low due to its inept handling of this crisis-has finally decided to admit that this constitutes a serious problem. To that end, Interior...

Granite State Conservatives

While the Iowa caucuses are merely days away, we shouldn’t forget that the first primary in the nation will be held two weeks from now in the gradually purpling state of New Hampshire. The PBS Newshour has a surprisingly good snapshot of the attitudes of Republican voters in that state on the issue of...
