Trump’s Error: Failing to Follow the Left’s Talking Points

As I watched President Trump’s initial reaction to the violence in Charlottesville from Bedminster, New Jersey, I felt proud of our nation’s new leader. At 3:36 p.m. on Saturday, he appeared for a press conference and after thanking our nation’s veterans, he addressed “the terrible events unfolding in Charlottesville, Virginia.” His opening line,

McAuliffe’s Progressive Government Riot

For over a century, police and military have been used successfully to contain possible violence between demonstrators and their opponents in our communities. Everyone knows how it works. One hardly need reinvent the wheel to support the conduct of decent civil demonstrations. By simply interposing a police cordon between the opposing factions and

Google Memo Wasn’t ‘Anti-Diversity’—It Was for the Wrong Kind

Let’s discuss the Google memo heard ’round the world. (Because Silicon Valley’s fetid, politically correct group think is slightly less depressing than the ratcheting tensions with North Korea.) The 10-page “anti-diversity screed” (as tech site Gizmodo called it) was neither. Nor was it a “rant” or a “jeremiad.” If you read it—and it’s
