Pence-Weinstein Phenomenon Exposes Contradictions of Feminism

Time has bestowed its “Person of the Year Award” to “the silence breakers”—those who, according to USA Today, “triggered a #MeToo national outcry over sexual harassment.” This #MeToo campaign is a peculiar thing to behold. First, so many of the men who have been accused of sexual improprieties are left-leaning men, while their

Sexual Misconduct, Feminism, and the ‘Roy Moore Rule’

It’s a problem because, it is tirelessly declared, “Islamophobia” is only going to create more Islamic “extremists.” An article from

These Losers Aren’t Just Sore, But Vicious

From very early on in this election season, and especially since Donald Trump became the Republican presidential nominee, I’ve looked forward to the day when he would win the presidency and I could gloat in the smug faces of all of the Hillary Clinton supporters (and NeverTrumpers) who spared no occasion to assure America that Trump
