New York City and other leftist cities and states are making it almost impossible for a woman to purchase even the most minimal of defensive measures — leaving them exposed and at the mercy of violent, stronger male criminals with no way to even the odds. This may not be the intent, but the recoiling […]

“Alienage discrimination” is exactly what is sounds like; the discrimination against people specifically based on them being in the country illegally. It’s little known, but it is fatally dangerous for America. Right up front, the threat here is that if alienage discrimination gains the same legal civil rights protections as, say, racial discrimination, then we […]
Sean Snaith is not a household name but he is one of the nation’s top economists and highly regarded in economic circles for the depth and accuracy of his projections. So much so that he is on multiple national economic forecasting panels, including The Wall Street Journal’s Economic Forecasting Survey, the Associated Press’ Economy Survey, CNNMoney.com’s […]
That President Barack Obama’s foreign policy was weak and destructive has been evident to most non-partisan observers for a long time. But with Israel’s bombshell announcement on Iran’s ongoing nuclear weapons program, the scale of the failure is coming into full light. Only his most ardent and blinded supporters can still be defending the Iran […]
This is the price of letting the mob, even one led by sympathetic teens, rule over sound principles: the loss of Constitutional rights and wrecked budgets. After the deadly shooting of 17 people at a Parkland, Florida high school earlier this year that resulted in huge protests fronted by students of the school, the GOP-dominated […]
Something just happened that may launch a political disruption that completely upsets the traditional calculation for political elections. And that’s not an overstatement, because the margins are so close in so many states that a small shift in the current predictable alignment could have a major impact. What happened? Grammy Award-winning rapper and producer and […]
The Florida high school student who made a racist sign asking his girlfriend to the prom has issued a profuse apology. His family issued a more profuse apology. But the promposal brouhaha is forcing him to forgo all the rest of his high school activities — a decision made in conjunction with the high school administration. There […]
Washington Post Senior Political Reporter Aaron Blake recently wrote an article that was run in newspapers around the nation under, Trump’s Foreign Policy Chaos. In related news, a recent CNN Poll reported Trump’s approval rating at 42 percent while his disapproval stands at 54 percent. These are related because one leads directly to the other, but both are wrong. Relentlessly […]
Dear #NationalSchoolWalkout Students, I weep with you. I am also proud to see you standing for what you believe in. However, what you ask for will not bring the results you desire. These problems in society have never been a result of too much Liberty, and eliminating the natural rights of all people will never bring […]
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 […]
