Will it be the Constitution or COVID? Is justice blind or masked?
Citizenship is the key question of 2020. The founders rejected British common law, which never mentioned citizens, only subjects. Democrats would take us back to that.
The smooth-talking demagogue from Delaware invokes the authoritarian ghost of Democrats past.
The passage of Proposition 16 threatens to inflame California in an ugly way we thought we had outgrown.
Americans must realize Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are racial fanatics and defend their honor against their new would-be “slaveocracy.”
Today’s anti-racists share in common the zeal of yesterday’s temperance advocates. For the fundamental evil of reformist revolutionaries is certainly not being drunk on alcohol but rather being drunk on power.
Democrats will always lie about race. This is a brief history of their efforts and the apparent motivations behind them.
Harris’ “none of us are free … until all of us are free …” rhetoric would have been alien to the founders and to Abraham Lincoln as it eschews individual rights and duties, instead making an appeal to collective ones.

Religious Liberty is the latest in the Ashbrook Center’s series of document collections covering major periods, themes, and institutions in American history and government.
We are a people ever ancient, ever new. Not theatrics, but this old teaching is at the heart of President Trump’s remarkable State of the Union address.
