Why Is Conservative Latino Media Virtually Nonexistent?

Maybe America’s Latinos are “natural conservatives.” But until Spanish language media is no longer an ideologically monolithic mass of leftist propaganda, this potential will be unrealized.

elevision and cable network news are biased overwhelmingly in favor of the Democratic Party, but at least viewers in search of balance can find options. Fox News will usually report both sides of the story, and One America News can be relied on for a consistent conservative perspective. Similarly, online search and social media platforms […]

Biden’s Pittsburgh Address Made Him More Vulnerable on Riots

The Democrats’ standard-bearer simultaneously excused, even endorsed, the political violence by blaming President Trump for supposedly creating the animosity that justified the violence.

deology, rather than performance, was the yardstick for success. We had great stacks of books and brochures on the glories of the . . . revolution,” Egyptian General ‘Abd al-Mun’im Khalil complained to Michael Oren in Six Days of War. “The books,” he added, “kept in perfect condition and inspected constantly, served as the basis […]

Trump’s ‘If By Whiskey’ Speech

Trump’s second term won’t be a time of America First nationalism, but at least it won’t mean indulging the Democrats’ impulse towards putting America last.

n 1952, Mississippi State Senator Noah Sweat famously gave a speech on the subject of prohibition, which was still highly debated in the South. Promising not to shy away from controversy, he spoke: If when you say whiskey you mean the devil’s brew, the poison scourge, the bloody monster, that defiles innocence, dethrones reason, destroys […]

AOC Inadvertently Makes Kamala Harris’ ‘Birthright Citizenship’ an Issue

The more frightening realization for fetishists of unrestricted immigration is that if children born to alien parents on student visas are not birthright citizens, then the children of illegal aliens will certainly never be enfranchised to vote in American elections on that basis.

hen U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) attacked Kimberly Guilfoyle’s discussion of her immigrant heritage at the RNC, she inadvertently reignited the issue of Kamala Harris’ citizenship. Despite what globalist open-borders advocates like AOC claim, being born in the United States does not automatically confer citizenship under the 14th Amendment. The citizenship status of the parents […]

Why Americans Won’t Get Fooled Again

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

he mainstream media did not see Election Night 2016 as a cause for introspection. No critical analysis was ordered to determine how they got it so wrong (their polls had suggested Hillary Clinton’s chances of winning the election were anywhere from 80 percent to 99 percent). Inside the media’s Acela Corridor bubble, it was inconceivable […]

NeverTrump ‘Conservatives’ Have Incited Political Violence

These turncoats are as much to blame for the current climate as the news media or the Democratic Party.

s their preferred candidate crashes in national polls and the race tightens to a dead heat in Joe Biden’s must-win states, NeverTrump “conservatives” are once again taking their marching orders from Democrats. The death, destruction, and mayhem besieging Democratic-run cities across the country, NeverTrump dutifully recites, is all Donald Trump’s fault. Team Biden crafted the […]

The Democrats’ Laughable ‘President Chaos’ Strategy

The country knows that this completely unacceptable state of violence has been facilitated, denied, apologized for, and to some extent encouraged by elements of the new and radicalized Democratic coalition.

t is humorous and even gratifying to see the Democrats—including the legion of their talking television plants—dragging themselves to the recognition that President Trump might actually be reelected. The powerful fragmentation grenade detonated at the Republican National Convention provoked the Democratic television commandos to brief outbursts of alarmist sincerity.  CNN’s Don Lemon, one of the […]

Notre Dame President Apologizes for Lou Holtz, Embarrasses University

Fr. Jenkins thinks his position as Notre Dame’s president means people are dying to hear from him. Truthfully, we aren’t. Not if he’s going to sound like an excuse-making infanticide cheerleader.

niversity of Notre Dame President Fr. John I. Jenkins once again has revealed his moral obtuseness. I’m no stranger to criticizing Notre Dame’s “leader,” and, frankly, it should be done by others much more frequently than it has been. Evidently, harsh feedback is the only way faithful, orthodox Catholics can communicate to him that they […]

The New Normal Ain’t So Grand

A great nation doesn’t get used to looting and mayhem on behalf of dubious social causes. It shuts them down.

ew turmoil greets America every week in 2020. COVID-19 has killed tens of thousands of Americans and the ensuing lockdown wiped out large swaths of our economy. The police-involved death of a convicted armed robber in Minneapolis launched a violent social revolution. Media lies test the limits of human credulity and gaslight half the nation […]

Centrism as Moral Ideology:
Biden and the Independent Voter

Barry Goldwater’s admonition bears repeating as we near election day: “extremism in defense of liberty is no vice.”

arry Goldwater’s opposition to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 has ensured he is a virtual pariah in the political atmosphere of 2020—an atmosphere in which one’s virtue extends exactly as far as one’s dedication to the ur-cause of “Antiracism.” Nevertheless, Goldwater offered a great deal of political wisdom over his many years in public […]

Will Trumpism Endure in the GOP?

Will Republicans have a party that regresses back to the altar of soulless neoliberalism or will they endeavor to think deeply and be humble enough to chart a nobler course?

he Republican National Convention took to the virtual stage this week to accomplish what no one thought they could do: make a positive case for Donald Trump’s reelection to a beleaguered base. But accomplish it they did, largely because of an intentional choice in format and speakers that emphasized Trump’s working-class voters over the razzle-dazzle […]

Democratic Death Rattle

We are meant to believe Joe Biden is the next president of the United States: C’mon, man.

ou could be forgiven for thinking President Trump is all but certain to join that regrettable cadre of one-term presidents. Those paltry polls. The “mostly peaceful” protestors seething in the streets. The clock is running out for the Bad Orange Man.  The experts are settled. The greatest economy in American history lay banjaxed by yet […]

Muriel Bowser, D.C.’s Demonstrably Incompetent Mayor

Is it any wonder that after granting the District of Columbia “Home Rule” in 1973, Congress took parts of it back in 1995 and again in 1997?

uriel Bowser, Washington, D.C.’s tetchy leftist sock puppet and demonstrably incompetent mayor, needs to be removed. She is living proof that the concept of “Home Rule” for the District of Columbia is and has always been a blunder.Until Thursday night, Bowser’s greatest achievement had been painting “BLACK LIVES MATTER” in huge yellow letters with city […]

Meet the Democrats’ Newest Strategist

For Vicky Osterweil, “Looting represents a material way that riots and protests help the community.”

er name is Vicky Osterweil. It’s a pity that she is only emerging on the scene now. Had her ideas enjoyed broad circulation even a month ago, she could have made a major and clarifying contribution to the Democratic Party’s platform. Many commentators, from the Left as well as the Right, grumbled that the Democrats’ […]

C’mon, Biden as Race Man

Democrats will always lie about race. This is a brief history of their efforts and the apparent motivations behind them.

rom Franklin Roosevelt to Joe Biden, the modern Democratic Party has exploited and engaged in demagoguery about race, even on the most solemn occasions. So why should they stop now, especially when their lies have brought them victories? The Charlottesville lie about Trump, central to Biden’s campaign, follows from Democratic habituation .

Trump for the Win

Barring another catastrophe on the scale of the coronavirus, this president will be reelected and be the only chief executive whose second term was more successful than his first.

he Republicans have now forced the Democrats to change course and tactics, shed their narcissistic complacency, and recognize that they are in the fight of their lives. When the history of this astonishing political year is written, there will be amazement that the Democrats ever imagined that they could preserve the entire election as a […]

Will Trump’s Long Courtship of Black Voters Work?

If so, it will mark Donald Trump’s greatest political achievement—at least equal to his stunning 2016 victory—potentially destabilizing the Democratic Party’s most faithful constituency in the future.

emocrats are panicking—and not just because their presidential candidate isn’t up to the task of running for president let alone running the country. No, Democrats are fearful that Donald Trump’s four-year courtship of black voters will reap electoral dividends in November. “Both campaigns tell me that there is a chance that Donald Trump could overperform […]

25 Things President Trump Can Say to Drive the Left (Even More) Nuts

The Republican National Convention doesn’t have to be lame. Here are some things America’s Master Troll can say to wrap up the festivities with a bang.  

resident Trump on Thursday will deliver his speech officially accepting the Republican nomination for president from the White House lawn. That fact alone has Democrats and the Left losing their collective mind.   Trump’s speech is supposed to underscore America’s greatness, which is likely to trigger leftists from Portland to . . . er, Portland.

If Voting Rights Are Sacred, Why Are We So Sacrilegious?

It is time we defend the franchise with accountability and action, not just rhetoric.

e are now entering the “silly season” of electoral politics. As the presidential campaign gets closer to Labor Day, the race begins in earnest. Candidates and their surrogates attack each other, and campaigns aren’t above using scare tactics to motivate voters. It seems to get worse with each successive election cycle. While hardly a novel […]

Democrats Are the Party of Status Quo Radicalism

What Democrats want is radical to everyday Americans, but it is not especially radical by the standards of the establishment.

n the first night of their virtual convention last week, the message of the Democratic Party was one of  “compassion,” but only in the service of approved ideology, victim groups, and causes. On the second day, the message was one of “strength,” but only in the service of the rainbow empire whose arc stretches from […]
