Why Soft-on-Crime Democrats Are Tough on ‘Gun Violence’

At their third primary debate, nearly all of the Democratic presidential contenders offered full-throated support for gun control. In the very recent past, gun control measures bowed to prudence by respecting the rights and expectations of law-abiding gun owners—even the Clinton “assault weapons ban” grandfathered weapons and magazines manufactured and purchased before the ban took

How the Media and Police Could Discourage Mass Shootings

Another public shooting came and went last week in West Texas. Close on the heels of the El Paso Walmart shooting, the Odessa shooting had some peculiar aspects, including its spontaneous eruption from a traffic stop and the killer’s shooting of hapless civilians from a moving vehicle. Like all mass shootings, this led to substantial

Liberal Hegemony’s High Costs

Foreign policy is very much an insider’s game. A handful of journals, scholars, and think tanks control its direction. Influential figures in both parties have formed a substantial consensus on the importance of preserving U.S. primacy over all contenders, the need to promote democracy and other liberal values, the vulnerability of the “international system,” and

What Happened to the Epstein Story?

International man of mystery and all-around dirtbag, Jeffrey Epstein, died just over two weeks ago at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, a high-security federal detention center that rivals Guantanamo Bay in its unpleasantness. The institution that safely housed infamous criminals like El Chapo and various members of al-Qaeda barely held on to Jeffrey Epstein for a

Red Flag Laws in the Age of Political Psychiatry

In the wake of recent horrific shooting sprees, Donald Trump and other Republicans wishing to appear to “do something” have seized the purported “middle ground”: red flag laws. These laws would permit law enforcement or concerned family members to petition a court to remove firearms from individuals deemed dangerous after a summary judicial procedure. Laws

Trump Speaks the Politically Incorrect Truth

In an otherwise slow news week, President Trump again commanded national attention. Using his preferred medium of Twitter, he exposed the hypocrisy of major Democrats, who wax poetic about the poor people on the border, even as their own districts persist in crime and decrepitude.  Unlike almost all of his predecessors, Trump is not afraid

Immigration by the Numbers

Democrats have renewed their vows to unwavering support of open borders. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) tussled last week with former Immigration and Customs Enforcement director Thomas Homan. After she described fence-hoppers as asylum seekers, Homan reminded her that they all have the option of presenting their asylum claims at the ports of entry.

(Almost) Everybody Loves a Parade

President Trump’s July 4 “Salute to America” sounded perfectly normal to many Americans. After all, the legacy American people have served in the military, respect it as a protector of our freedoms, and agree that the planes, tanks, technology, and equipment that we spend a mountain of money on are inspiring and visually

It’s Bernie’s Party Now

After watching two nights of Democratic primary debates, I felt like I needed more than my regular shower. The party increasingly is far-left, divided between the identity politics’ wokeness of candidates like former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro and Senator Cory Booker and the economic leftism of Senators Bernie Sanders and
