Inside The Mind Of A “Mad Man”

Inside The Mind Of A “Mad Man”

Update: Here’s a link to a somewhat more concise review I did for Goodreads.  One of the most common critiques of contemporary American society, and Western culture more broadly, is its purported enthrallment to the opiate of celebrity.

The Rising Cost Of Chavismo

The Rising Cost Of Chavismo

The brutal authoritarianism and contempt for free expression the current Venezuelan president inherited from his predecessor, Hugo Chavez, continue to mark the reign of Nicolas Maduro.

In the same week that Swedes have been besieged by aggrieved jihadists imported by their own government, Londoners experienced yet another subsidiary benefit of multiculturalism.

Charitable At Your Expense

Charitable At Your Expense

One of the worst aspects of our immigration system is that it provides perverse incentives to the worst people. From the Chinese-owned law firms that facilitate Chinese immigration through fraudulent asylum applications-a crime so pervasive that even nonpartisan academics acknowledge it to be ubiquitous in nature-to the industry-not my words-of birth tourism, to the...

The Department of Homeland Surrender

    One of the themes we’ve tried to impress upon our audience over the past three years is the multidimensional nature of immigration. It’s not simply a single issue among a panoply of issues that animate the cut and thrust of politics. It encompasses everything from economics to culture, including crime, education, health...
