There is a tragedy of historical and philosophical ignorance that is benefitting a tiny handful of people at the expense and well-being of the vast majority of black Americans. This tragedy is the ongoing, purposeful scrubbing from the education system the history of successful, self-reliant black Americans before the Civil Rights Movement in the 1950s, […]

We’ve seen this before, just on a smaller scale. Special Counsel Robert Mueller is following the infamous playbook of Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald, who managed to convict an innocent man while the guilty one walked free — and Fitzgerald knew it. They both went after and indicted people who either did not commit any crimes […]
Avengers’ director Joss Whedon suffers from the all-too-common mental disorder known popularly as Trump Derangement Syndrome. The condition is not yet part of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, but it’s symptoms are depressingly evident. But Whedon acts as a sort of poster boy for both the disorder, and the attendant philosophic descent of […]
A Florida high school student is charging that she was wrongly humiliated by school administrators over going bra-less to class, just because she is a girl, going the full discrimination protest route. And she’s getting a lot of help in her gender-ized victimhood from her mother. The incident came about when the 17-year-old female Braden […]
Diplomacy is often considered the most Genteel and cultured of governmental pursuits. And that can work many times, when done right. But it can also fail miserably, as Winston Churchill clearly understood watching the ever-so-Genteel Neville Chamberlain botch what could have preempted World War II. And it has been failing America over multiple presidential administrations. […]
The Pence family is an amazing portrait of wisdom and grace under unrelenting, ugly attacks by leftist activists. Vice President Mike Pence has been assailed repeatedly for his traditional Christian faith, from believing in God’s involvement in people’s lives to not accepting homosexuality as an equivalent lifestyle worthy of extra protections that heterosexuals do not […]
It’s stunning how thoroughly the American Left dominates every lever that moves the American culture, that shapes the broad narrative and forms public opinion — and yet it does not dominate in either the elections or in polls on self-identification. While it is amazing Republicans can ever win in such an environment of dominant cultural […]
It’s pretty obvious to every conservative in the country by now that the American Left is where virtually all censorship resides. Not every liberal is a censor, but modern liberalism promotes censorship. Of course, you only know this if you get news and information from more outlets than the old, traditional media. Whether it is […]
It’s time to speak out some hard truths to the children participating in the so-called “student-led” national walkout and the broader “school safety” movement. Let’s call it speaking truth to power, because there are some very powerful forces blocking most of these young people from hearing these truths — the traditional media, Hollywood and the […]
This is not a rose-colored view. The midterm elections are going to be dicey for Republicans in the House. Virtually all of modern American history, regardless of party i power, demonstrates this. Yes, the GOP could definitely lose the House. First, here are the numbers suggesting GOP vulnerability in the House. In 16 out of […]
This headline is most certainly not clickbait. The path from this point to dissolution of the Union or actual armed conflict between California authorities and federal authorities is not hard to map. Whether it happens depends largely on the actions of California. Right now, California is the first and only state to pass a law making itself […]
The media is intent on urgently reporting and discussing the importance of the temporarily reduced security clearance of Trump advisor and son-in-law Jared Kushner. But when Obama Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes was actually denied security clearance in 2008, the media yawned. Actually, it never even reported something this newsworthy and, apparently, if the media doesn’t […]
In the wake of the Parkland, Florida school shooting and the wave of well-organized and financed protests using emotionally traumatized students, the Florida Legislature is set to vote on a range of legal responses — including a series of gun restrictions. This, from a state that has some of the strongest Second Amendment protections in […]
In a virtually ignored development, Planned Parenthood has found another way to make a buck on the backs of mostly impressionable young people. On top of its massive abortion industry, and the more recent discovery that it was selling baby parts, the nation’s largest abortion provider is now offering transgender hormone therapy for women who […]
President Trump’s approval ratings are at their highest level ever, and Republicans have totally erased the 15-point lead in the generic congressional ballot Democrats held just two months ago. This is telling on a couple of levels, and I hope Republicans are paying attention. Democrats may continue on their merry intersectional way. First, polls taken […]
