Of Baseball and Bloodshed in Our Chaotic Age

The annual Congressional Baseball Game for Charity is a bipartisan, bicameral contest between Republican and Democratic teams. Each side diligently practices for weeks, but it is far from toil (though the aging athlete’s aching muscles indicate otherwise). For the participants, it is an idyllic nostalgia trip that swaps the cut and thrust of the political […]

Fire Mueller and End the Witch Hunt

A not-so-quiet consensus among the Washington, D.C. elite—the “Permanent Bipartisan Fusion Party,” as Michael Walsh calls them—holds that President Trump is a direct threat to their interests and must be stopped at all costs. When Hillary Clinton and the Democrats (and their cronies in the media) failed to derail Trump in the presidential election, this […]

A Modest Proposal for Effective Swamp Draining

It could be exciting to see a court as heedless as the travel ban courts step up to the plate and “convict” President Trump for violating the emoluments clause. It would be fundamentally unjust and on its face a travesty. Yet it is tantalizing to contemplate the ripple effect such a ruling could have. Remember […]

The Special Counsel: The Swamp’s Watchdog for Trump

“I understood this to be my recollection recorded of my conversation with the president.” That statement by James Comey had this old trial lawyer’s antennae buzzing. While being questioned about his memos-to-self by Senator Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) at last week’s big intelligence committee hearing, the former FBI director used the term “recollection recorded” not once […]

Bloomington versus Belmont: School Vouchers and Economic Diversity

Boston suburb Belmont is Charles Murray’s example in Coming Apart of rich, liberal, respectable people who preach relativism and moral agnosticism while leading orderly lives with minimal amounts of divorce, drugs, and dissipation―nice people, but entirely out of touch with Donald Trump’s America. I saw that, too, when I was a visiting professor at Harvard […]

True Tolerance is Beyond Bernie Sanders and Today’s Democrats

When you hear the words “tolerance” and “diversity,” what comes to mind? If you’re a casual observer of politics and culture, you react positively and you would likely assign those words to a liberal mindset in general and perhaps to the Democratic Party in particular. Those of us who have been paying closer attention, however, […]

The Sorely Missed Sincerity of Adam West

“People take on the shapes of the songs and the stories that surround them…” – Anansi, in Neil Gaiman’s Anansi Boys. Adam West has died. He was 88 and had been battling Leukemia. Adam West has died. He was Batman. He was the first Batman I knew. He was the Batman I’d measure all other […]

The Travel Ban Is Not About Islam, It’s About Countering Jihad

The U.S. Supreme Court is finally set to hear arguments on President Donald J. Trump’s executive order temporarily halting travel from six countries in the Mideast and Africa. According to the Left, the order is  a “Muslim ban,” since the majority populations of each of these six countries pray toward Mecca. To the president and […]

Trumping the Narrative

The Narrative is partly like quicksand. If you fall into it, struggling will hasten your envelopment and death. Best to relax, take some deep breaths, and half float, half swim out of danger. I know there are some people whispering that advice into Donald Trump’s ear. Don’t struggle! Stay calm. And above all, do not […]

Over the course of these two days, we will cover seven topics. Let’s begin now: Introductory Statement Mr. Comey, to be blunt, sir, your well-established pattern of […]

Who Will Police the Police: The Comey Testimonies

Former FBI Director James Comey earnestly lectures about the inaccuracy of leaks and laments that it is not the purview of disinterested federal agencies to correct such erroneous information that the press such as the New York Times recklessly publishes. Fine. Yet for the last six months, information in the hands of the FBI, such […]

A Dose of Clapper Down Under

The National Press Club of Australia recently had the misfortune to be subjected to a raw assessment about the dire state of affairs in America by the former Director of National Intelligence, Mr. James Clapper. Presently, we don’t know if this commences an epidemic of ex-Obama officials touring Van Diemen’s Land in the way that […]

Don’t Miss the Significance of the Comey Matter

As expected, recent testimony given by James Comey to Congress was a big nothingburger. The worst thing for President Trump to come out of it, besides confirming Comey told him three times he was not under investigation, was that the elected executive of the people sought to discover whether an unelected enforcer of law, who […]

Congressional Republicans Are Committing Political Suicide

This might come as a surprise to many but, in addition to conducting pointless investigations of Republican presidents, Congress actually has a serious function in our government. Shockingly, there was a time in this country’s history when Congress crafted laws. In fact, Congress not only legislated, it did so without direct presidential direction. Until the […]

Comey Testimony Is Not About Accusing the President of a Crime

It is hard to understand why this news is news at all, but ABC News reported Tuesday evening that former FBI director James Comey will not accuse President Donald Trump of obstructing an FBI investigation. Comey is scheduled to testify before the Senate intelligence committee on Thursday. Comey is a decorated former prosecutor who served […]

Britain Needs a Warlord

The term “warlord” usually conjures an image of a long-bearded fellow with opulent adornments sitting in a large tent in the desert, filled with enthralled servants, plush oriental rugs, sipping tea (or other beverage), and combing through his war booty. Indeed, the term is most usually applied in relation to places like Afghanistan or certain […]

Our Crude News Network

Progressive media bias is now a given. The present generation of journalists and reporters tends to believe that just conveying the news no longer offers ample venue for their unappreciated talents, celebrity status, and deserved political influence. As a result, they often massage coverage to find relevance as makers, not mere deliverers, of news. Like […]

Should We Embrace the “Inevitable Reality” of Terrorism?

Editor’s Note: The following is an open letter to the editor of the Los Angeles Times, penned by our good friend and contributor, Edward J. Erler.   A Letter to the Los Angeles Times To the Editors, Security experts warn us that terrorism has become an “inevitable reality” of the modern world and that we […]

“Pittsburgh Not Paris” Triggers the Eco-Nuts

I have only now stopped laughing. I was going to write about President Trump’s decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris Climate Accord the other day, but the reflexive and hysterical insanity emanating from the anti-Trump eco-nuts had me in stitches. John Kerry (who signed the accord in 2015): “one of the most […]
