Do We Own Our Military?

The preamble to the Constitution lists a number of core functions for the American government. Any American who has ever listened to “Schoolhouse Rock” (or maybe just an obsessive listener like yours truly) can name them all: Promote a more perfect union; establish justice; ensure domestic tranquility; provide for the common defense; promote the general

The Inertial State

One of the nobler elements of the American system is its jealous protection of the rights of minority interests. Going back to James Madison’s strictures about balancing faction against faction in Federalist #10, and Abraham Lincoln’s warnings against unfettered popular sovereignty in the Lincoln-Douglas debates, Americans have long held to a noble tradition of respecting

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
