The Eagle and the Dragonfly: How Google Threatens Freedom

Google CEO Sundar Pichai’s recent congressional testimony capped a deservedly rough year for the embattled search giant. While Pichai largely avoided any major missteps in his testimony—thanks mostly to the technological illiteracy of the questioners—even Google-friendly sources couldn’t help noticing his evasiveness on one key point: the infamous proposed partnership between Google and

Attack of the Left-Wing Ken Dolls

If the aftermath of the 2018 election cycle has had one big surprise, it has been the rise of a specific, and completely unexpected, species of Democratic 2020 candidate. No, it is not the female-centric prospective candidacies of Kamala Harris or Kirsten Gillibrand. No, it is not the rise of the Obama imitator,

The Menace of Western Masochism

There is an old joke that if you look up French military victories on Google, it says nothing can be found, and asks “Did you mean French military defeats?” Back when Google was an accurate search engine, the result would be imaginable. Given, however, that looking up “American inventors” on Google now produces

The Decline and Fall of the Alt Right

  Recently, I wrote a piece at this website detailing my own experiences with the political movement known as the "Alt Right," and explaining why its trajectory since its high water mark in 2016 has made me regard it as a stillborn mess. Moreover, I predicted that the movement would degenerate even further into obscurity and ignominy,

Hillary’s Useful Idiots Revisited

Two years ago on this day, I published my first article ever with American Greatness, titled "Hillary's Useful Idiots." The overarching thesis of the piece was that if Hillary Clinton won, #NeverTrumpers would be thrown under the bus by the Left the instant they started disagreeing with her, as they inevitably would. Speaking of figures

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
