magine the perfect excuse for political failure. Everyone complicit in the failure would need to agree upon this perfect excuse and give it throaty amplification, preferably executed in unison whenever circumstances required it. Forging such a consensus would not be too difficult, given the perpetrators preference for the collective over the individual and their common […]

ack in May, presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden tapped Senator Bernie Sanders to help assemble six task forces which would make recommendations for the party’s 2020 platform. The allegedly moderate Biden joined up with the Vermont socialist in an attempt to unify the fractured party. But the report just released by the Education Unity […]

r. President, I try to be an optimist. I try not to contemplate what life with a dementia-addled Joe Biden in the Oval Office would mean for America. I try to look for silver linings when bad news knocks on my door. But I have to be honest with you—I’m starting to get worried. Just […]

t may be premature (as well as unoriginal), but I believe, in one of the Democrats’ former favorite phrases, that “the walls are closing in” on Joe Biden. The Rasmussen poll—one of the only regular polls consistently accurate in 2016 and one that tends to lead fluctuations in the current polling—has recorded a six-point gain […]

onald Trump is still the only man in Washington who understands that America is in trouble and the nature of the trouble it is in. We were reminded of this during his moving speech at Mount Rushmore, in which he honored our greatest of all statesmen while calling on Americans to defend—without apology—our home, our […]

n a way never seen before, America has gone mad. The Democratic Party, having left the likes of Henry Jackson and Daniel Patrick Moynihan far behind, is being steered by the ideology of Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez. It’s in thrall to a Maoist mob. It’s tacitly (and sometimes not so tacitly) accepting wholesale […]

By now, you’d think the Washington Post and the rest of the lefty media cohort—which is pretty much the entire American media sans Fox, talk radio, and a handful of online publications—would have learned their lesson. But no.
ach new dawn brings another farcical rant from the mainstream media. Facts be damned, hypocrisy ignored, truth summarily rejected—all in the name of “But Trump!” and “Orange Man bad!” Pravda veterans would be proud and perhaps, even a little jealous, as nobody in the MSM is being forced to propagandize at the point of a […]
he past several days have been filled with accolades and attention for NeverTrump, the wee collection of self-proclaimed “conservatives” working against the president, in the corporate media. The Washington Post published a lengthy puff piece on two new nonprofits that are targeting not just President Trump but Trump-supporting Republican senators up for re-election. Post reporters, […]

On July 3, American Greatness published an article that linked former Federal Emergency Management Agency Director Michael Brown with a group of ex-George W. Bush Administration officials that has pledged support for Joe Biden’s presidential campaign. As it turns out, the Michael Brown associated with the group was not the Brown who ran FEMA during […]

onald Trump is trying to break through a 2020 wall. By January 2019, after over three years of failed efforts to impeach him, sue him, indict him, impoverish him, and destroy him, the Left had failed. The economy was booming. Trump’s tweets were mostly bragging about his accomplishments. And the Left was dumbfounded that both […]

t is a grand thing to rise in the world,” said Anthony Trollope, an English novelist of the Victorian era. “The ambition to do so is the very salt of the earth.” But sometimes ambition is the mother of monsters. A recent article in The Hill cited “multiple reports” and two mega-donor Koch network groups—Americans […]

verything is what it is, and not another thing.” That lapidary observation from the Sermons (1726) of Joseph, Bishop Butler, is one of the most profound philosophical observations I have ever encountered. One of the simplest, too. In nine short words, it introduces a principle of mental hygiene that Marxists, Freudians, Hegelians, astrologers, sociobiologists, and […]

If you believe you are liberal, whatever party you may vote for, you really need to think long and hard about which candidate is most likely to continue to protect the Constitution and which candidate is a sad dementia-riddled puppet for extreme leftists who will protect your right to free speech only if you say what they want you to say.
o, I haven’t had a change of heart. I’m just taking back the word “liberal.” The Left can’t have it anymore. They have hijacked the word. They aren’t liberal, and we all need to realize that and stop calling the very illiberal left “liberal.” You can call them leftist. You can call them progressives, fascists, […]

he current rage for cultural Marxism, notably its critical race theory trope that America is “systemically racist,” causes many problems for the Left and, in particular, its presumptive presidential nominee Joe Biden (a.k.a., “Joey Basement”) as well as other Democratic office seekers. By arguing America is systemically racist, the Left is asserting that America was […]

s we get into high summer, there must be a very large number of Americans now actively considering whether the country is going mad. The leading newspaper in the nation’s capital has accused the president of plumbing “new depths of depravity” in a perfectly unexceptionable and soaringly eloquent speech at Mount Rushmore last Friday. Praising […]

Trump has every right to be enraged that four years after Barack Obama’s top henchmen concocted and executed the biggest political scandal of all time, not one person has been held criminally responsible while trials against his associates drag on.
n May 2019, Attorney General William Barr made an announcement millions of Americans had been waiting for: A U.S. attorney outside the Beltway would investigate the corrupt origins of the FBI’s probe into Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and government efforts to sabotage the incoming president after he was elected. For the past 14 months, we […]

ur nation survived 2016’s “Flight 93 Election.” We charged the cockpit, elected President Trump, and achieved four years of making America great again.

anye West over the weekend tweeted his intention to run for president in 2020.

onald Trump gave the greatest speech of his career on Friday night at Mount Rushmore, an address that will soon take on historic importance. The president has now forced his opponents out of their fetid hothouse of snobbery, humbug, and subversion. In the process he has forced the Bush Republicans, who led the party between […]

s the summer of our discontent drags on, the fall of 2020 will bring with it either the fall of America or its rise from the ashes. This Independence Day, the battle lines were drawn unambiguously, and the fate of our nation truly does rest on the decision of the American voters in November. It […]
