Google Is Getting Grabby

veryone knows that the Declaration of Independence guarantees Americans “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,” but less well known is the fact that, in 1776, “happiness” was actually a more comprehensive way of saying “property” and the means of securing one’s individual independence. Since the days of the Founders, private property, and respect for […]

Mike Pence Is Right to Campaign in Wisconsin During the Democratic Convention

ecently, Sleepy Joe Biden made the allegedly “responsible” choice to remain in Delaware throughout the Democratic National Convention, to be held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, August 17-20. That’s right—Biden will be the first presidential nominee since Franklin Roosevelt in 1944 (who was at death’s door) to skip his own party’s convention. He will instead hide in […]

Welcome Barr’s Offensive Against Antifa, But It Won’t Stop ‘Cancel Culture’

f it seems as though rioting militants and statue-destroyers have been given the green light by blue state governors and big city mayors, prosecutors, and (shell-shocked) police chiefs to terrorize ordinary Americans, to deface and destroy public property, and to extort public officials into making further concessions to left-wing ideologues, that’s because they have. Last […]

Pandemic Nationalism

ven in the grip of virus-related panic, most liberals are demonstrating a remarkable ability to remain focused on what they regard as Job One: trashing Donald Trump. Nevertheless, in some quarters on the Left, one can perceive glimmerings of uneasiness. In addition to ordinary human concern over the fate of themselves, their friends and family, […]

Nanny State Gone Berserk

A recent federal spending package, strongly backed by Democrats and Republicans and signed by President Trump, contained a poison pill that I vehemently urge the American people not to swallow. In fact, like all federal spending bills, it contained a veritable treasure trove of waste and bad policy. But one measure stood out: a requirement […]

Trump’s Real Offense? He Made Politics Political Again

As Democrats in the House of Representatives prepare themselves for a vote on the articles of impeachment against President Trump—preparing the way to boot him from office and nullify the results of the 2016 election—Americans should reflect on the audacity it takes to do that. Neither of the articles of impeachment references a specific crime […]

Embrace Fiscal Responsibility, Not Tax Cuts, in 2020

As Democratic presidential candidates stumble over one another in a headlong rush towards socialism and fiscal insanity—promising trillions in new spending on everything from child care, health care, and higher education for all, to “the Green New Deal” and slavery reparations—President Trump faces a critical choice. He could try to match the Democrats and promise […]

On Impeachment, Democrats Are All Talk and No Action

This week we’ve seen much breathless speculation in the media about how close the Democratic House of Representatives may be to impeaching President Trump. The answer to that question is straightforward: about as close as they were last week, and the week before — that is, not close at all. How can this be? Didn’t […]

Democrats’ Impeachment Obsession Is a Danger to Democracy

Sad to say, but Tom Steyer, out-of-touch and unlikable billionaire though he may be, is probably the most representative face of the Democratic Party right now. Almost since the day President Trump won the 2016 election, Steyer has been bawling like a toddler and insisting that Trump’s prompt removal from office, via impeachment, is a […]

The Great Greenland Gambit

Recently, a small-minded tattletale revealed that President Trump has been exploring the possibility of the United States purchasing Denmark’s overseas territory of Greenland. Greenland is a vast, icy wasteland lodged in the northern Atlantic and southern Arctic Oceans. It also happens to be the home of key U.S. military bases—controlling space assets and providing early […]

Smoke and Mirrors at the Border

Recently we had confirmation of what every sensible observer has long known: the media narrative about a Trumpian reign of terror at the border is absolute nonsense. Statistics from the Border Patrol confirm that the number of deaths of border-crossers in 2017 and 2018 were close to an all-time low. This comes despite intense mainstream […]

The Bloom is Off Joe Biden’s Rose

Poor Sleepy Joe. He just can’t catch a break. Recently the former vice president  abandoned his decades-long support of the Hyde Amendment, which bans federal funding for abortions, in favor of a more fashionably pro-choice, anti-baby stance. A no-brainer, right? Throw some red meat to the left-wing party faithful and reap the inevitable rewards… Only […]

Nigel Farage: Britain’s Prime Minister-in-Waiting?

Since at least 2014, the most powerful man in the United Kingdom has been someone who holds no noble or royal title, and has never occupied a domestic political office. He is a former commodities broker who took up the cause of reasserting British sovereignty and terminating the country’s membership in the elitist, internationalist, and […]
