Resisting #TheResistance

If the recent generic ballots tell us anything, it is that the Republican establishment should stop trying to run generic Republicans as candidates. The GOP of Paul “throw-granny-off-a-cliff-and-give-her-Social-Security-check-to-the-Koch-Brothers” Ryan has never been popular, and for good reason. This is why Donald Trump, despite having ostensibly low approval ratings, is virtually unstoppable compared to

The Rise and Fall of the Alt Right

With Russiagate increasingly looking like a deep state and Clinton campaign-manufactured bugaboo, a new brand of leftist McCarthyism has reared its head—namely, trying to seek out members or allies of the Trump Administration with ties to the dreaded Alt-Right. So far, the only targets have been Department of Homeland Security (DHS) staffer Ian

The Slut Shaming of Donald Trump

The news of Michael Cohen’s flip against President Trump has sent liberals and NeverTrump into paroxysms of glee. “Legal blows fuel impeachment fears,” Politico crowed gleefully. “The president is clearly guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors,” sniffed Bret Stephens. “He should resign from his office or be impeached and removed from office.” Unsurprisingly,

The Genocidal Elite, Part III: The Trail of ‘White Tears’

Sarah Jeong and her defenders in the media truly have given America a gift. Where once it was only dark speculation that media elites, at best, are ambivalent toward openly genocidal and bigoted statements about white Americans, now we are certain that these sentiments exist. We know, too, that the most common defense

The Genocidal Elite, Part II: The Pains in South Africa

Ask any social justice leftist about the tweets by the New York Times’ disgraceful new hire Sarah Jeong, and once you’ve got them off all the red herrings about Trump/white supremacy/fascism/incoherent screaming, you will get an answer along the lines of, “Come on, Jeong’s tweets are just the cathartic way that social justice

The Left’s Real Problem: It Can’t Buy SCOTUS

As signs point to an easy confirmation for President Trump’s latest Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, #TheResistance has entered full “chicken with its head cut off” mode. For evidence of this, look no further than Judge Kavanaugh’s alma mater, Yale Law School, where a series of alumni, teachers, and various other sour

You Aren’t Maintaining That

Longtime readers of this site will know that I am no fan of the tech industry. Over the years, I have criticized Google for its censorious behavior, Facebook for fostering an “always online” culture of hypersensitiveness, Amazon for trying to seize the US government’s intelligence assets, and Twitter for just being terrible, period. I have long warned

Hearing Evil Out

William F. Buckley once famously quipped of Robert F. Kennedy’s continued refusal to come on Firing Line, “Why does bologna reject the grinder?” Today, the motto of our purported mainstream journalists appears to be that the grinder should reject bologna because the grinder shouldn’t give bologna a platform. At least, that’s the only
