Rats! We Had Better Luck Against the Brits…

The scene is an iconic image of America’s founding: On October 19, 1781, at Yorktown, Virginia, as the French fleet blockading the harbor looked on, the British army under Lieutenant General Charles Cornwallis, who cravenly refused to attend, surrendered to the combined continental and French troops led by the Comte de Rochambeau with

Trump Shuts China’s ‘Backdoor’ to Cyber Spying

President Trump on Wednesday signed an executive order in a prescient move to defend America’s national security against Chinese cyber espionage. Invoking his powers under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, the president gave the Commerce Department 150 days to devise methods of implementing new rules for American companies that wish to trade

Does President Trump Want to Be Impeached?

The aphorism is as logical and demonstrable, as can be demonstrated by current events: “The more illogical the proposition, the more political the proposition.” Fortuitously, too, current events have conspired to reveal this aphorism intersecting with the political truism that “the Left accuses its victims of that which the Left is doing.” Per

The Climate Cult’s Missal

The sanctimonious Climate Cult never ceases to amaze and amuse in its incessant, condescending appeals to enlighten—by any means necessary—we recalcitrant heretics who refuse to cede our liberty to the state upon the pretext of their politicized science. Now, they’re going to nuke us with a missal. To wit, this May 1 tract

End Times for the Collusion Cult?

Growing up, I attended Catholic Central High School, which was founded by the Basilian Fathers. Later, I matriculated to the University of Detroit (undergrad and law school), which was founded by the Jesuits. Once, I was asked about how the combination of these institutions affected my learning. I began by reciting Catholic Central’s

To Whom Is It a Benefit?

Our political discourse is rife with invective. Some of it is based upon a mutual animus between political parties and people. Some of it is based upon a mutual advantage for political parties and people. Some of it is both. This was explained to me when I was a 26-year-old Republican Commissioner in

The U.N. Salts the Wounds of Iranian Women

Anyone with a passing acquaintance with the irredeemable institution that calls itself the United Nations understand it is a global Tammany Hall that endangers the advance of human freedom and prosperity throughout our world.
