A Blueprint for a Pacifist, Socialist Republic

The Democratic Party is now committed to a far more radical socialist platform than has ever been remotely hinted at by a serious American national party.

his has been a year of such astonishing and unforeseeable events that it seems to be taking some time for the full impact of what has tumbled onto the daily and political life of the United States to be assimilated. The year has been building steadily towards its November 3 climax like a Wagnerian opera, […]

Right-Wing Populism Is the Way Forward

The times are changing and it is past time the Republican Party unapologetically declares itself the party of normal people and governs like it wants their support.

or too long, the Republican Party has squandered its political power. Although no one would know it from watching primetime news, enjoying professional sporting events, or opening social media, America remains a generally “center-right” country. Popular culture spews progressive values and liberal thought. As recently as 2019, however, Gallup found that a combined 72 percent […]

Who or What Exactly Is Running Against Trump?

The inner-Biden at 77 is turning out to be an unabashed bigot in the age of “cancel culture” and thought crimes that has apparently declared him immune from the opprobrium reserved for any such speech.

s we enter the final 90 days of the November presidential campaign, a few truths are crystalizing about the “Biden problem,” or the inability of a 77-year-old Joe Biden to conduct a “normal” campaign. Biden’s cognitive challenges are increasing geometrically, whether as a result of months of relative inactivity and lack of stimulation or just […]

The Man Who Wasn’t There

Joe Biden doesn’t make gaffes. He is a gaffe.

hose things with which we are most familiar are often hardest to see. This is perhaps particularly true of such fraught subjects as politics. There we are every day staring at the same people, reading news stories that are virtually indistinguishable from one another, and what do we know? Our situation is similar to Alice’s […]

The Left’s ‘Trump Won’t Split’ Riff

Come November, voters will punish a Democratic Party that refuses to condemn rioters who believe violence is the answer.

he Left projects more than a drive-in movie theater. The latest case in point is the febrile effort to stoke the “Trump won’t split” riff. The Hill on Monday offered a prime example of this regressive riff, this time emanating from MSNBC columnist Mike Barnicle during an appearance on “Morning Joe.” Fraught with intimations of […]

Bring on the Trump-Kanye Debates!

If Joe Biden opts out of the debates and President Trump says the American people deserve to hear a serious discussion of the issues, then which network exactly would not broadcast it?

iven the synergy, shall we say, between the legacy media and the Democratic Party, the idea that the pundit voices all clamoring to derail the debates between Joe Biden and President Trump are somehow doing so in opposition to the closely held wishes of the Biden campaign is difficult to believe. Explaining why Biden ducking […]

Floyd Bodycam Leak Highlights Press Collusion With Government

It’s not just “self-censorship” and it’s no conspiracy theory. The politicized U.S. news media is working hand-in-glove with the permanent bureaucracy in the Department of Justice.

s the last wisps of smoke still curl up from the ashes of the widespread destruction left behind by the “mostly peaceful” social justice warriors who burned, smashed, and looted in the name of promoting tolerance and harmony, new details emerge regarding the catalytic death of George Floyd. It now turns out that the authorities […]

Biden’s Pretend Campaign

Democrats are all still singing from the same song sheet. But they are not going to be able to wing it to election day with this pretend campaign.

he Democrats became so addicted to their need for President Trump to be permanently under a cloud of criminal suspicion for their media lackeys to endlessly celebrate, that their present discomfort is considerable as the weight of prosecutorial scrutiny shifts to another—that is, to their—foot. Former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates’ performance at the Senate […]

Alexander Vindman: They Aren’t Paying Me $1 Million for My Memoir for Nothing

“To this day, despite everything that has happened, I continue to believe that only I, alone, held U.S. foreign policy together for three years.”

On August 1, the Washington Post published an op-ed by the now-retired Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman, of impeachment fame. The paper’s editors had to heavily revise the piece prior to publication. American Greatness has obtained the text of Vindman’s first draft.  fter 21 years of playing soldier, I am now a civilian. I decided to […]

Reflections on the Revolution

Should Trump win reelection, his first priority must be to clear out all of the snakes in his administration.

 beautiful marble building is nestled at the center of Mount Vernon Square in Washington, D.C. In front, the words “A University for the People” are carved into its grand stone benches. Its entablature is emblazoned with “Science—Poetry—History.” And though several other engravings would suggest that this remarkable edifice is the Washington Public Library—a gift of […]

Obama Defends Mob Rule

The former president effectively said that mob rule in what he thinks is a good cause is itself desirable and good.

resident Barack Obama’s address at the funeral of Representative John Lewis in Atlanta on Thursday, for the most part, was a moving tribute to a courageous pioneer in the civil rights movement. The total immersion in beatific praise that was accorded to the congressman throughout his prolonged itinerary between his physical death and actual burial […]

The New Old Obama

Why is Barack Obama reemerging with greater frequency now? There are a few reasonable suppositions.

n his latest incarnation as president emeritus and corporate multimillionaire community activist, we are reminded of the earlier Barack Obama of “get in their face,” “take a gun to a knife fight,” and “punish our enemies” vintage. From time to time, Obama ventures from his hilltop, seaside, $12 million “you didn’t build that” Martha’s Vineyard […]

The Choice Before Us

This time, we’ve traveled to the very edge of the abyss.

omehow, news that the Antifa-Black Lives Matter nexus burned a stack of Bibles in front of the Mark O. Hatfield United States Courthouse in Portland the other night put me in mind of President Trump’s magisterial speech in Krasinski Square, Warsaw, just over three years ago. A short digression: has any other modern president delivered […]

Malcontents in the Middle?

The Left cannot afford to be outed as the cause of the chaos. The middle would not reward them; and, instead, would reelect Trump.

t is axiomatic that the middle of the political spectrum is where electoral majorities are made. The middle is where the independent voters who decide elections reside. The middle is where both parties spend the bulk of their time assessing and seducing. The middle is what both parties claim to be trending their way—or, risibly, […]

Clouds of Summer Obscure the Coming Thunder of November

The most telling statistic that emerged in the past week was that more than 60 percent of Americans feel uneasy discussing their political preferences.

part from exposing once again the obtuseness, the moral bankruptcy, and the almost inexpressible hatred of the president that possesses the Democratic congressional leadership, Attorney General William Barr’s appearance at the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday clarified in a few minutes why the national interest requires the reelection of the administration. From the refusal to […]

Why Trump (and the GOP) Must Do Better

The president and his party must act and act now, lest their supporters suspect they’ve been conned.

ecently, I wrote at American Greatness about the need for President Trump to up his game. That article elicited some thought-provoking responses. Before offering my counter-responses, and for the benefit of new readers, I will summarize both my initial position as well as the criticisms directed at it. I will also take this occasion to […]

The Misery Compact

Agree to the Democrats’ terms . . . or else.

he wisecrack in MAGA world is that coronavirus hysteria and the catastrophic consequences of related lockdowns have an expiration date: November 4, 2020. That, of course, is the day after the presidential election, which our political experts currently predict will be won by Joe Biden. Panic over the flu-like virus will disappear; power-grabbing governors will […]

Alt-America Is the Dream of Stalinist-Democrats

If we let ourselves be duped into selling out both ourselves and our country to the Stalinist-Democrats, they will never give back the freedom and prosperity we relinquished.

The Only Way to Punish the Left

This is the moment in history for ordinary Americans to stand up with courage and make this coming election a red tidal wave.

eftists are trying to destroy America, her Constitution, her honor, and the patriots who love her. The corrupt leftists are on the streets of blue cities and are Democrats in positions of leadership in the United States government.

The Worst Brand Name in American History

As businesses, schools, and sports teams change their names to acknowledge past racial injustice, it’s time for the party directly responsible to do the same.

n their eagerness to expose and eliminate every trace of historic racism, Trump-deranged Democrats are walking on very thin ice. Once-honored figures, now deemed  racist, have had their names removed from important institutions, their statues toppled, and portraits taken down from the corridors of power.  Last week, the Democratic-controlled House voted to rid the Capitol […]
