The Southern Poverty Law Center’s Ridiculous ‘100 Days’ Report

The Southern Poverty Law Center is at it again. At the hundred-day mark of President Trump’s administration, the center has released a report that purports to expose the rampant “white nationalism” the president and his “alt-right” advisors have unleashed upon the nation. Instead of judging President Trump’s actual record, the report rehashes left-wing

European Anti-Americanism and the Republican Party

Let me take you back to the Year of Our Lord 2012, when President Obama was running against Republican presidential nominee, Governor Mitt Romney. During the second presidential debate, which focused on foreign policy, the sitting president twice delivered a line that would live in infamy. Obama mocked Romney’s aggressive stance on Russia,

In the Battle for Liberty, Complacency is Retreat

Another day, another health care debate being dominated by the Leftist opposition. Earlier this week, the Republican leaders in Congress announced that they had come to an agreement with the House Freedom Caucus and would be putting forward a new attempt at repealing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). The reaction from

Oilman Rex Tillerson and Ukraine

“Why should U.S. taxpayers be interested in Ukraine?” Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was heard, or overheard, to ask at a recent meeting of the Group of Seven foreign ministers. The remark sent the usually astute Anne Applebaum into medium dudgeon. Writing in the Washington Post, she commented, snidely: “Unlike everyone who has

A Call to Mend, Not End the NEH

In its draft budget, the Trump administration has proposed the abolition of the National Endowment for the Humanities, as part of a dramatic reduction in non-essential discretionary spending. The NEH’s budget is so small (0.004 percent of the federal budget) that its elimination would serve as a mere gesture. In fact, Trump-inspired conservatives

Last Chance for France

This most unique society, which evolved gradually over millennia, with each successive generation safeguarding and conveying to future generations the distinctive patrimony of its peoplehood, is now in danger of being inundated in the tidal wave of a hostile, alien culture, which has no intention whatsoever to assimilate to the nation of France.

Draining the Academic Swamp

Civil rights historian Abigail Thernstrom once spoke of the American campus as “an island of repression in a sea of freedom.” That was in 1989. At the high tide of freedom we who believed in unfettered inquiry and free speech believed these islands might “stand undisturbed as monuments of the safety with which

Fundamentalist Nihilism

At some point, progressivism begins to collapse by the weight of its own internal contradictions and becomes faith-based. Future anthropologists will have a difficult time sorting out all the bizarre rituals and sacraments of this early 21st-century progressive cult. In today’s headlines, we have three crystal clear illustrations of the phenomenon. Let’s begin

Republican Complacence in the Face of Public University Radicalization

Herein lies a cautionary tale. If publicly funded higher education can be hijacked in America’s most conservative state, under the noses of a legislature with lopsided Republican majorities in both houses, and with a Republican governor and Republican lieutenant governor, it can (and likely will) happen in your state—if you let it. Gregory
