Does Covington Expose the Tipping Point?

Americans learned an important lesson last week: Innocent 16-year-old boys are acceptable sacrificial lambs for the political Left’s altar. In order that there could be a real-time detailing of events with truthful covering of the story as well as subsequent events, I created a 90-tweet thread to serve as an overview of the Covington Catholic […]

The Holy Trinity of the Totalitarian Left

In just the few days since the midterm elections, the Left again has shown its brazen disregard for our historical and cultural norms and their contempt for the rule of law:    Mobs were sent to intimidate political opponents into silence: Tucker Carlson’s wife was cornered in her pantry, and this was met only with […]

Trump’s American Turnaround: Why the Midterms Matter

In February 2017, during the second month of his presidency, I argued Donald Trump was best understood through the lens of a turnaround executive. Through that lens are three focal points: Blowing up political correctness, because an American turnaround cannot happen if we are unable recover the meaning of words and talk forthrightly about what […]

The Left Must Honor Its Own Rules

    With its track record of championing for the presidency both a rapist and his wife-enabler, today’s Democrats now have the gall to demand hearings (conducted, no less, by a Congress now exposed to have set up at taxpayer expense, a slush fund to cover the consequences of their own sexual misdeeds) to pass […]

The Gathering Civil Liberties Storm

Yesterday morning, Facebook took down all five of my posts, declaring each time that “We removed this post because it looks like spam and doesn’t follow our Community Standards.” Really? Here are the “radical” links I posted: •  Former Federal Election Commission Chair Brad Smith’s WaPo article on the Cohen plea. •  Commentator Don Surber’s […]

The Left’s Moral Compass Preening

Totally and completely predictable. Another leftist jerk:   Singer John Legend lashed out at House Speaker Ryan . . . amid a controversy over a policy involving immigrant families getting split up at the border. “Seriously, f–k you,” Legend tweeted. “Reunite the families at the border and we can talk about father’s day.” This is […]

Eric Schneiderman: The Left’s Latest Sexual Harassment Hypocrite

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is apparently as nasty with women as he is a bully toward his political enemies. From The New Yorker: Schneiderman . . . has long been a liberal Democratic champion of women’s rights, and recently he has become an outspoken figure in the #MeToo movement against sexual harassment. As […]

MAGA Requires Reclaiming the Language

We have lost our culture to the Cultural Marxists and, increasingly, our liberty to the Rogue Ruling Class™. It is easy to despair. But, in the late 1970s, it was also hard to believe we could defeat Soviet Communism. Then three courageous people—Pope John Paul II, Margaret Thatcher, and Ronald Reagan—changed the world. Reflecting on […]

A Call for Patience with Jeff Sessions

There is angst over Jeff Sessions’ apparent inaction in taking the fight to the Rogue Ruling Class™. Believing otherwise is compared to the old saw about second marriages: the triumph of hope over experience. But maybe not, and here is why: This possibly is a classic case of chicken-or-egg; a conundrum that calls for patience—at […]

An Imminent Counterattack Begins the Fight of Our Lives

Unparalleled government abuses of power are about to become public. The question is what we, the people, will do in response to this overt attempt by deep state players to strip us of our freedom.  Four recent developments drive home the unsettling nature of our situation: First, Charles Lipson writes how Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) “is making a […]

Rogue Ruling Class Grabs Power, Removes the People’s Sovereignty

Famed civil libertarian and attorney Alan Dershowitz said recently of the ongoing shenanigans surrounding Robert Mueller’s investigation: “Just as the first casualty of war is truth, so, too, the first casualty of hyper-partisan politics is civil liberties.”  Indeed. The American people are up against a rogue ruling class that cares only about protecting the power […]

Weaponizing the Government for Leftist Political War

James Comey is the deep state’s pathological equivalent of Sally Field. But focusing on his bitchy, vengeful, and sanctimonious personal psychodramas is a distraction from what really matters—the profound internal threats to liberty and equal justice under the law, enabled by Comey and other rogue actors.  The former FBI director deserved to be fired, is […]

Raping the Voters: The Left’s Power Play with Sexual Politics

As if on cue and without so much as an altar call, an entire generation of sexual libertines announced their overnight conversion to sexual propriety. And, just like that, murder, taking one for the team, rape, unwanted displays of genitalia, semen-stained blue dresses, cigars, knee pads, one free grope, enabling the same, and Harvey Weinstein’s […]

How Do We Rediscover Our American Heritage? Start With the Declaration

It’s sobering to consider the degree to which we have lost our knowledge of and connection to our American heritage. As a result, William B. Allen notes that we have been transitioning increasingly from a society of “independent yeomen” to a society of “wards of the state.” The challenge before us is to determine whether […]

The Way the Comey Hearing Should Have Gone Down, Day Two

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome back to the second and final day of the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence hearing with former FBI Director James B. Comey. We covered two topics at yesterday’s hearing. Today we will complete our questioning, covering five remaining topics. Let’s begin.   Topic #3:  The Trump Dossier […]

The Way the Comey Hearing Should Have Gone Down, Day One

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen and welcome to the first of two days of U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence hearings with former FBI Director James B. Comey. 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 […]

Get Smart: “Fundamental Transformation” Demands Chaos

It’s the chaos, stupid. Nothing more clearly marked the intended mission of Barack Obama’s presidency than his own words, spoken shortly before the 2008 election:  “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” Two markers from his final month in office are the concluding grace notes of his presidency, and […]

Obama’s Chaos Strategy: The Case of the IRS IED

As Lois Lerner attempts to garner the public’s sympathy and a sealing of her testimony in a federal case looking into the targeting of political opponents during the Obama Administration, new reports now suggest that the House of Representatives will recommend the Department of Justice (DOJ) file criminal charges against her. Lerner is the former […]

Looking at Trump as a Turnaround Executive

The 2016 election outcome was an unexpectedly loud declaration by the American people about their dissatisfaction with the direction of the country. Further, the magnitude of the post-election polarization has ensured the historical habit of “happy talk” promoting the need for bipartisan initiatives that bring us together is absent and not going to happen. We […]
