The Myth of Civil Rights

hat was the 2016 election really all about? In one version, Donald Trump’s rise was an awakening of bigotry, of nostalgia for the days when Americans were mostly white, women knew their place, and gays lived in the shadows. But there is another way of telling this story. It is one in which Americans who […]

Why Conservatism, Inc. Is Powerless Against Socialism

As America enters a new decade, a political realignment is happening. The Left, traditionally the party of the working class, now represents urban, liberal elites more interested in the latest permissive fashions than they are in what they see as the parochial concerns of their less affluent countrymen. In reaction, conservatism has aligned to an […]

Donald Trump Is
An American Hero

Isn’t it nice to hear someone speak plain truth? It’s something fading from our world—the courage to speak common sense without qualification, without the expected self-flagellation ordained by effete fools who set the rules everyone is supposed to follow.

Michael Bloomberg may be one of the wealthiest men in the world, but that doesn’t mean he can’t empathize with the little guy. The former New York City mayor and Democratic candidate for president spoke for all Americans when, speaking at a Mexican restaurant in Arizona, he said America needs an “awful lot more immigrants […]

Democrats Want to Manage, Not Represent, the People

After several weeks of hype, the impeachment of President Trump has turned out to be another ephemeral sideshow in the never-ending psychodrama of elite “resistance.” Americans are tuning out the noise, and there is little that the gatekeepers in the corporate leftist media can do about it, except to fret that the public is too […]

What Is Conservatism, Inc. Actually Conserving?

In the wake of the Donald Trump moment, conservatism is up for grabs: white identitarians, “Catholic integralists,” paleocons, and American nationalists all sense an opportunity for greater representation. But the bigger story is that the globalist, anti-nationalist, progressive “conservatism” that came before Trump isn’t yet quite dead, and it’s fighting for survival. The degree to […]
