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,

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love a European White House Correspondent

I was fortunate to be among some 50 conservative journalists and writers invited to a private reception and press briefing at the White House on April 24. It was mostly a symbolic act, meant to reward long-time loyalists who’d risked blacklisting and anathema by the establishment media for supporting Donald Trump, with the

No Sanctuary for the Truly Vulnerable in California

Even as the nation is taking a decided step away from the leftward thrust of the last eight years in our politics, we Californians—who have already legalized and financed abortion on demand and last year sanctioned so-called “assisted suicide”—are turning our attention to discovering new means and new victims of this misguided and

If Speech is Violent, What Next?

In the aftermath of the infamous Battle for Berkeley, the subsequent debacle surrounding Ann Coulter’s invitation to the University of California’s flagship campus, not to mention the attempted infidel-stoning of Charles Murray at Middlebury and the rioting that forced Heather Mac Donald to speak to a mostly empty room at Claremont McKenna College,

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

Kate O’Beirne 1949-2017

The news yesterday that Kate O’Beirne—longtime Washington editor for National Review, quick-witted talk-show debater for CNN— had died was sad but not surprising. I had had dinner with Mary Ellen Bork, one of her closest friends, a few weeks before and had heard how sick she was. As can be said of us

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.
