The U.S. Marine Corps: Missing in Action

US Marine Corps Commandant General David Berger told a United States Congressional committee the other day that he had let down the “combatant commander.” The United States Marines Corps were unable to have Marines in position to assist US citizens during the ongoing fighting in Sudan and to provide assistance after a recent earthquake in Turkey. But he’s not quite right. He also […]

How Biden’s sanctions are funding Putin’s war against Ukraine

On February 24, 2022, the first day in the new chapter of the Putin’s aggression against Ukraine, President Biden pledged to destroy aggressor with his package of ‘severe’ sanctions: Today, I’m authorizing additional strong sanctions and new limitations on what can be exported to Russia. This is going to impose severe costs on the Russian economy, both […]

If The Right Wants To Win, It Must Drop Its ‘That’s Not How We Do Things’ Approach To Organizing

The right should build a school to teach conservatives how to organize for political power and action beyond and between elections. We previously looked at the effect of the left’s ability to escalate politics from the halls of legislatures to the politics of the streets. We’ve considered how the right’s interest in protests, boycotts, and other political […]

Winning political boycotts requires strategic organizing, not just a loud megaphone

Conservatives have finally started to realize that in the ongoing culture wars, politics must mean much more than simply canvassing for votes. Through fits and starts, right-wing activists are seeking to exert their will over corporations and other powerful “non-political” actors to force them away from routinely and reflexively supporting left-wing causes. One of the […]

Arkansas House Urges Action on Terrorism on America’s Southern Border

It is often pointed out that Washington D.C. is out of touch—with the rest of America. It’s not that elected officials in Washington don’t come up with good ideas; but between “The Swamp” running interference and leftist ideologues in the White House and Congress delaying or even killing legislation, so little seems to get done. […]

Trump’s Indictment Damages the U.S. in World Politics

A fundamental aspect of politics is that domestic events impact international ones and the reverse. U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s meeting with Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen deserves praise for demonstrating that the House leadership stands with Taiwan. That is an important deterrent message to communist China as its leader, Xi Jinping, weighs his […]

Trans-Militants and Their Supporters

On March 27, Audrey Hale, a 28-year-old female who identified as a man, opened fire on students and staff at the Covenant School, a private Christian school in Nashville, Tennessee. Hale murdered three children and three adults, before being shot dead by responding law enforcement officers. Nashville Police confirmed that Hale’s transgenderism was believed to have played […]

China Is Preparing To Challenge The U.S. Over Taiwan

The following essay is an excerpt from Colonel Grant Newsham’s new book, When China Attacks: A Warning to America, due out from Regnery on March 28. The combination of political warfare, gray-zone actions, and the potential for kinetic warfare come together most clearly around Taiwan, which offers the most immediate prospect of China going on a major […]

The hidden truth behind China’s spy balloons

Washington is in a state of confusion about balloons and other unidentified flying objects, four of which have already been shot down. What is their purpose? Will there be more to deal with? Where are they all coming from and at who’s command? The general consensus around Washington, voiced by Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer, […]

Antifa link casts Jane’s Revenge attacks on pro-life centers in radical new light

Editor’s Note – This piece by Valerie Richardson features quotes from CSP Director for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism, Kyle Shideler. Dozens of pro-life pregnancy centers have been terrorized for months by a radical pro-choice outfit calling itself Jane’s Revenge, but now it looks as if the previously unknown group is entwined with a more significant threat: Antifa. […]

DOJ indicts two Antifa-linked individuals from Florida for Jane’s Revenge vandalism

A federal grand jury indicted two Florida residents with alleged links to Antifa this week on charges of violating the FACE Act. According to a Justice Department press release, Caleb Freestone and Amber Smith-Stewart, both in their 20s, along with other unidentified co-conspirators, conspired to prevent access to “reproductive services health facilities.” Freestone and Smith-Stewart […]

Destroying American Democracy – An Inside Job

Over the last few years, there has been much written about the destruction of American democracy. Frequently the threat has been of alleged interference in U.S. elections by Russia, China or other state actors. Government agencies, the name of election integrity, were assigned to identify and disrupt these foreign intrusions. As more and more information […]

Biden’s mishandling of top secret documents is a symptom, not the real problem

Official Washington is consumed with Joe Biden’s serial mishandling of classified documents. His partisans insist that it’s not as bad as what Donald Trump did. His critics correctly say illegal stashing of top secret material in Joe’s garage, a file marked “Personal” and an office paid for by anonymous Chinese donors is, indeed, far more […]
