Why Is Desperately Poor India Beating New York’s COVID-19 Response?

For some reason, Andrew Cuomo and Anthony Fauci have become the faces of responsible COVID-19 policy. Nothing could be further from the truth.

ew York spends more money per capita on healthcare than any other state in the Union. It ranks third in the country in physicians per 100,000 population at 375.1. In terms of raw infrastructure and medical resources, New York should have been one of the best places in the world to receive treatment for COVID-19. […]

Why America Is in Real Danger

Without a vaccination, what replaced Christianity in Europe may well do the same in America.

mericans have long been proud of the fact that, unlike European countries, America never went the route of totalitarianism as embodied in communism, fascism and Nazism. This achievement may be coming to an end. In order to understand why, it is first necessary to understand why European countries embraced—or fell victim to—totalitarian doctrines. Until World […]

Last Gasp of the Mensheviks?

Will the signers of the Harper’s letter realize that only an alliance with the Right can save liberal values?

ome note has been taken of a letter appearing in Harper’s titled “A Letter on Justice and Open Debate.” Signed by an impressive array of eminent left-leaning literary and academic figures, it challenges the intolerance of the new radical Left. While denouncing “right-wing demagogues” and, of course, Donald Trump, its main focus is to call […]

China Means to Take Over the World

China’s reach is far more widespread than many people have understood, and China’s ultimate goal is total control of the world and its economy.

hina means to take over the world. That is not hyperbole or overstatement. That is their intention. Whether the U.S. public hears them or not, the Chinese are broadcasting this intention loudly. China is a communist country. In order to run a communist country, there must be total control of every aspect of the lives […]

Why We Can’t Afford to Abandon Taiwan

The only way to prevent Chinese ascendancy and a potential war is to make it clear that we will not accept their bullying.

n the Munich Conference of September 1938, Great Britain and France threw Czechoslovakia to the wolves. In order to appease Adolf Hitler, the Western democracies forced the Czechs to give up the Sudetenland, a heavily fortified region on the border with Germany. This region contained millions of ethnic Germans which Hitler wanted to incorporate into […]

The Economy Is Struggling, but Gun Sales Are Soaring

When protests and riots started sweeping the country after the May 25 death of George Floyd, the FBI clocked another record in June by conducting more than 3.9 million background checks.

AKMONT, Pennsylvania—Long before you find yourself standing in front of the Smoke N’ Guns shop, the delicate aroma of coffee beans and hand-rolled cigars beckons your senses as you walk along Allegheny River Boulevard. Outside the shop, four black leather chairs spread a respectable 6 feet apart are waiting for either the overflow of customers […]

Cotton to Higher Ed: Loosen Up or Lose Your Money

This is a campaign issue that frightens the Left, and with good reason. Republicans should move swiftly.

his is how bad higher education has gotten: Republican Senators who worry about federal overreach and don’t wish to harm large institutions in their own states have decided that colleges and universities have fully abandoned their Ivory Tower mission and can only be repaired from the outside. The remedy is called the “Campus Free Speech […]

The Singularity Is Near

Can we, for the sake of our children’s children, find at the last moment a way to reverse course, to step back from the brink, to find a future timeline that avoids the dreadful singularity of civil war?

t’s obvious to all, at this point, that factional division is reaching a breaking point in America. Like a pair of locked-together tectonic plates pulling slowly in opposite directions, the strain has been increasing for a long time now—and when seismic ruptures finally occur, they happen suddenly, and release enormously destructive energies. Some years back, […]

Are Americans Being Conditioned for Despotism?

Embattled Americans should run regular checks on what condition their conditioning is in.

ans of the His Dudeness or El Duderino—the Dude for those not into the whole brevity thing—will recall the wonderful “gutterballs” scene from “The Big Lebowski,” musically accompanied by “Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In).” Contrary to what some viewers might think, this tune was not written for the movie.

Swampy AARP

Like so many other organizations that began in the service of a reasonable—even noble!—cause, AARP has become merely an excuse to rake in the cash for a handful of executives.

he American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) was founded to represent the interests of close to 40 million seniors. Over time, the group has become one of the most powerful lobbying interests in the country. And you’ve got to hand it to them—for an organization that bills itself as an advocacy group for the elderly, […]

Defending ‘New Europe’ from Old Europe’s Woke

In the name of “strengthening democracy” in Central Europe, Joe Biden’s clueless policies would undermine democracy and NATO, too.

ll but ignored on this side of the Atlantic, Hungarian Prime Minister Victor Orbán recently summed up one of the presidential campaign’s most critical and least-discussed issues—U.S. support for the frontline NATO states of Hungary and Poland against political assaults from their allies and ours in the European Union. Our national security is at stake […]

Boston Blowup

How President Trump can achieve justice for the American people.

arely has anybody deserved the death penalty more than the Boston Bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev,” said President Trump in a recent tweet. “So many lives lost and ruined.” And yet, “the appellate court tossed out the death sentence,” and “it is ridiculous that this process is taking so long!” Hard to deny that the president has […]

‘Systemic Racism’ or Systemic Rubbish?

Unlike systemic racism, intellectual indentureship could quickly become a reality in America.

he “systemic racism” refrain is a meaningless abstraction. Operationalize the nebulous abstraction that is “systemic racism,” or get out of my face! To concretize a variable, it must be cast in empirical, measurable terms—the opaque “racism” abstraction being one variable (to use statistical nomenclature). Until you have meticulously applied research methodology to statistically operationalize this […]

Kick the ‘1619 Project’ Out of Schools

The federal government is more than justified in preventing students, parents, and teachers from being subjected to anti-American “history.”

merica needs to get the “1619 Project” curriculum out of its schools. Senator Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) has introduced a new bill that would go a long way toward that goal—the Saving American History Act of 2020 (SAHA 2020). The New York Times introduced The “1619 Project” last August. The “1619 Project” mainstreamed the anti-American ideology […]

Creepedia

BoyWiki’s supposedly informational purpose masks a more sinister service: networking for members of the international pedophile community.

nline predators have used the same web software as Wikipedia and Wikifan sites to design what they describe as a place to record “our history and our culture” for men attracted to boys, or as they are called by everyone else: pederasts. The site’s administrators are connected to the Free Spirits Council, an international network […]

Trump Is Saving NATO, Not Threatening It

We’ve all been the victim of an information operation directed at us by the Washington foreign policy “Blob.”

ince announcing his bid for the presidency in 2015, Donald Trump has been slaughtering many sacred cows, none as precious as those in foreign policy—a category dominated by what former Obama adviser Ben Rhodes accurately described as “The Blob.” That is why the Blob went along with former President Barack Obama’s hapless quest to besmirch […]

What Will AT&T Do When the Suits See What CNN Does to Profits?

An unfair comparison of AT&T CEO John Stankey and Admiral Takijiro Onishi of the Imperial Japanese Navy.

T&T chief John Stankey is in a position not unlike that of Admiral Takajiro Onishi of the Imperial Japanese Navy. In case you don’t recall, Admiral Onishi consolidated all Kamikaze activity under his command during World War II. John Stankey, like Admiral Onishi, commands a consolidated AT&T, which includes Warner Media, whence he sprang, and […]

Institutional Wokeness Is Destroying American Higher Education

With the possible exception of narrowly targeted investments in science and technology, it is long past time to defund American higher education of every single taxpayer dollar.

he English department at Rutgers University, the eighth-oldest university in America, recently went woke. In an email obtained by The College Fix, Rebecca Walkowitz, English department chair, announced to faculty, staff and students that the department would implement a set of “anti-racist” initiatives. Lest the gullible be led astray by such anodyne phraseology, these initiatives […]

The NHL Gets Woke

In what sense do professional hockey players “skate for black lives”? How does hockey, whether played well or poorly (or at all), “end racism” or bring about “better days”? Does the act of playing hockey “fix” racism?

he National Hockey League’s COVID-delayed playoffs began in earnest on Sunday. After months without hockey, I was keen to watch the best of the best compete for Lord Stanley’s Cup, the greatest trophy in all of sports. But I was not permitted simply to enjoy the return of hockey—a sport on which I was reared […]

Charge of the Lightfoot Brigade!

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s plan to gin up counts for the 2020 Census in Chicago involves an interesting, if appropriate, mascot.

s. Hizzoner Lori Lightfoot, moonbat mayor of Chicago, continues on the megalomaniacal but slapstick path first blazed by the fictional Dr. Miguelito Loveless. In her latest effort at legerdemain, she appealed to Chicagoans in West End wards to fill out their 2020 census questionnaires because Chicago needs more resources!     This, of course, is the same […]
