The Spirit Of America

The Spirit Of America

Update: Photos of events held throughout the country.  Tomorrow will see rallies held across the nation expressing support for President Trump and his platform. Presumably, there will also be counter-protests, although hopefully this time the participants will be able to restrain their penchant for savagery, destruction of private property, and unrestrained violence against those peaceably...

The War On Christmas (And Christians)

It seems like the Truck of Peace has struck yet again, adding to the nearly 21,000 lives extinguished by this most quiescent, moderate of religions. The ISIS-inspired murderer is on the loose, naturally, although the BBC will be relieved to know that the offending lorry has been taken into custody. As the Alternative for...

The American Work Ethic

Some interesting thoughts from my favorite libertarian-after the great Hans Hermann-Hoppe-about our civilization’s defining issue. Charles Murray’s summation is worth pondering, because it cuts to the heart of open borders dogma.

The Great Debate

The Great Debate

Update: Brilliant pre-debate analysis by James Taranto.  Josh Marshall makes a salient point, re: Trump’s greatest handicap entering tonight’s debate. Personally, I tend to agree with Derb. Most voters will overlook an ignorance of policy details-see Aleppogate-if they have confidence in a candidate’s leadership abilities. That said, Trump does have to exhibit some minimal...

Honoring The Fallen

Honoring The Fallen

  CNN is one of those ubiquitous aspects of the American soundscape which I’ve always looked upon as part of our gradual cultural decline. Whether you’re in a dentist’s waiting room, or simply passing by a restaurant on your way home-as I was this weekend-you can’t help but overhear one of that network’s correspondents,...

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...

The Delusions Of Dump Trump

The Delusions Of Dump Trump

Update: Neil Munro explores Speaker Paul Ryan’s bizarre Republican trinity. I had the pleasure of attending an informal discussion held by writer/political pundit Fred Barnes recently, where the topics ranged from his biography of Jack Kemp-co-written with McLaughlin Group colleague Morton Kondracke-to his thoughts on the presidential candidacy of Donald Trump. Taking place prior...

Minnesota’s Merkel

Minnesota’s Merkel

Mark Dayton did his best impression of a pre-metrosexualized Merle Haggard this week, advising anyone who didn’t cotton to the impoverishment of the once great state of Minnesota to get the hell out!

The Mask Slips

The Mask Slips

It seems like our Mexican friends would benefit from consulting their marionettes in the American press, who are laboring under the misimpression that our sub-culture of illegal immigrants-60 percent of whom come from our neighbor to the south-is much smaller than we’ve been led to believe. At least, according to Arturo Sarukhan, a man...

W. II

W. II

One of the recurring themes of Jeb Bush’s political life is his low estimation of American citizens, especially those of the native-born kind. Whether he’s pontificating idiotically on the fecundity of border-crossers, or disparaging our entrepreneurial zeal, Dubya’s younger brother never fails to miss an opportunity to gratuitously bash the people whose votes he presumably...
