Forget #Calexit. We don’t need to wait until 2018 for a silly vote. California has all but decided to secede from the union. How else to interpret our officials’ lawless course in the coming fight with the Trump administration over illegal immigration? They’ve laid down their markers. They’ve drawn their lines. Gov.

Seven days until the election. Decius today responds to Nathan Pinkoski’s essay, “The Political Science of Publius Decius Mus”—only at American Greatness. Pour another cup of coffee (or glass of whiskey) and take your time. Both pieces reward slow, close reading. Also at AG today: Michael Kochin argues for “sharing the world.” And while you’re
