Finishing Honorably, Finishing Safely

President Trump’s decision to allow Turkey’s Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, an enemy of America, slaughter northern Syria’s Kurds is as unwise as it is dishonorable.

A Conservative Resistance?

Leftists in America treat conservative voters, elected officials, and policies as illegitimate. Should conservative Americans return the favor? Could they? Few outside the corporate leftist media took seriously Hillary Clinton’s accusation that Donald Trump might refuse to accept defeat in the 2016 election. Though Americans’ sociopolitical divisions had already become irreconcilable, no one
