The Media Lied to You

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

Lying is certainly nothing new in politics. It is said that prostitution is the world’s oldest profession, but politics is assuredly the dirtiest—filthier even than garbageman, mortician or, well, the world’s oldest profession itself. Former President Bill Clinton (while we’re on the topic of sexual promiscuity) perjured himself, leading to his impeachment. Former President Barack […]

Why Anything Short of Total Eradication of Hamas Isn’t Enough

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

For a week now, the world has watched a high-stakes, emotionally draining, and dangerous game being played out in Gaza. What began as a mediated four-day “truce” and swap of 50 Israeli civilians held hostage by Hamas in exchange for 150 convicted Palestinian-Arab terrorists has now been dragged out much further. Hamas, unusually self-aware for a jihadist outfit, has savvily […]

Hunter’s Gun Charge Is A Big Problem For The Biden Crime Family

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

Thursday’s indictment of presidential prodigal son Hunter Biden on three gun-related criminal counts is the latest twist in the long, winding and rapidly escalating saga that is the Biden crime family. The indictment, served up by U.S. Attorney — and now “special counsel,” despite the fact 28 Code of Federal Regulations Sec. 600.3 requires that […]

We Need to See Transgender Shooter’s Manifesto

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

A transgender lunatic named Audrey Hale shot up a private Christian elementary school March 27 in Nashville, Tennessee. The shooter, who tragically killed three adults and three children before being neutralized by well-trained Metropolitan Nashville Police Department officers, was a 28-year-old biological female who had “transitioned” to a public-facing male “gender identity”. Nashville police also confirmed […]

Returning to Pre-Trump ‘Dead Consensus’ GOP Would Be Big Mistake

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

In the aftermath of the Republican Party’s recent midterm elections debacle, Right-liberal sharks are circling. These devoted acolytes of what a prominent 2019 First Things manifesto called the American Right’s “dead consensus” think they see blood in the water. Indeed, the “dead consensus” Praetorian Guard has apparently decided that now is the time for a […]

The New Age of Orwellianism

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

Community organizer and left-wing social activist Saul Alinsky wrote, in his 1971 book “Rules for Radicals,” that “he who controls the language controls the masses.” Alinsky, whose work profoundly influenced at least one notable fellow Chicagoan, Barack Obama, was in that quip channeling George Orwell’s famous dystopian novel “1984.” “Newspeak,” the language of Orwell’s fictional […]

Against ‘Principled Loserdom’

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

I was in New Haven, Connecticut, this past week for a couple of events at Yale, one of which was a William F. Buckley, Jr. Program debate for a primarily college-age audience on “common good conservatism.” During the debate, I argued on behalf of the more “muscular,” more forceful, and less “liberal” approach to political […]

The Conservative Path Forward in the Biden-Harris Era

Estimated Reading Time: 2 minutes

There is plenty to lament right now. But conservatives’ time and energy would be better spent thinking ahead and plotting a future—one that, in all likelihood, can still be salvaged. The presidency of Joseph R. Biden Jr., a thoroughly mediocre and gaffe-prone career politician in the throes of debilitating senescence, has commenced. It has done […]
