When a Conservative is Asked ‘What is a Woman?’

A common way to put Made-up Sexual Status (MUSS, a.k.a. “transgender”) activists on the spot is to ask them “What is a woman?” They’ll hem and haw because their current emotion-based creed dictates that the only possible definition is “anyone who identifies as a woman.” Some sexual devolutionaries, however, may come back with what a […]

You REALLY Want Federal Gun Control Intervention? Well, Here’s an Idea for You…

Word is that the Senate has the necessary votes for federal gun control legislation designed to, among other things, pressure states into instituting “red flag” laws. These measures are controversial because they involve suspending a person’s rights (i.e., seizing his weapons) without due process. Wherever you stand on them and federal firearms laws in principle, […]

Is the Left Agitating for War With Russia so it Can Cement Domestic Tyranny?

It has been odd and alarming watching the powers-that-be relentlessly escalate the proxy war our government is waging against Russia. It’s not just that we’re sending billions of dollars of weapons into Ukraine, are calling Vladimir Putin a war criminal and issuing other fightin’ words, are training Ukrainian troops and are trying to effect Moscow’s […]

VIDEO: Gunmaker’s New ‘AR-15 for Kids’ Has Left Shooting Intellectual Blanks

UPDATE: This article initially indicated that the AR-15’s standard round was “moderate in muzzle velocity.” I should have written that it’s lacking in “killing power” according to this analysis. The article has been corrected to reflect this reality. I deeply regret the error, which was the result of a lamentable brain cramp. A good response […]

Anyone Who’d Cancel George Washington is an Enemy Within

There are different ways to identify an enemy within, but one is quite simple. Anybody who’d cancel George Washington should be considered a fifth-column member fit only for scorn and ostracism. We’ve seen attacks upon Washington take many forms, with San Francisco’s 2021 decision to rename a school bearing our first president’s name a prime […]

Killing Civilization: They’re Teaching Schoolkids ‘the Narrative’

For quite some years now, the term “narrative” has been common in political circles. It generally has a negative connotation as it’s used to reference a story line — an often largely fictional one — advanced by some ideologically driven entity for political gain. This is why I saw a red flag Friday when, while […]

A Black Female SCOTUS Judge Won’t Do a Darn Thing to Help Blacks

When Joe Biden’s earpiece expresses, through his mouth, its firm intention to nominate a black female Supreme Court candidate, critics will say that race and sex shouldn’t matter in such things. Well, don’t worry — they won’t. Whoever Justice X ends up being, she’ll almost assuredly vote in lockstep with white Elena Kagan and Hispanic […]

Here’s PROOF That Reducing ‘Transwomen’s’ Testosterone Levels Does Not Eliminate Their Edge Over Real Women in Sports

As most know, there’s a contentious debate over whether it’s fair to let men who claim they’re female compete in women’s sports. It’s a debate driven more by emotion than reason, as so many things are. If a fellow claiming female status trounces woman athletes in a fairly high profile competition — as University of […]

If Limiting the Unvaxxed is Wise, What About Limiting Fat People?

For the record, I’ve nothing against our friendly-fronted friends. Why, my favorite philosopher, G.K. Chesterton, reportedly weighed in at close to 400 pounds. Yet the reality is that the horizontally challenged have something in common with the “unvaccinated.” The latter are now today’s lepers, attaining this status via refusal to accept experimental mRNA therapy agents […]

SCOTUS Justices’ COVID Ignorance Illustrates Why They Should Stay in Their Lane

Aside from labeling herself “an affirmative action baby,” Supreme Court Justice Sonya Sotomayor once called herself a “wise Latina.” Given this, apropos here is a line from ancient Chinese sage Confucius: “Wisdom is, when you know something, knowing that you know it; and when you do not know something, knowing that you do not know […]

God and Ego: Trump vs. Obama

A “great man knows he is not God,” observed the great and greater G. K. Chesterton — “and the greater he is the better he knows it.” This came to mind when hearing something President Trump said recently — and brought to mind something Barack Obama said many years ago, something a bit odd. “Our […]
