The U.S. Women’s Soccer Team: “Should I Stay or Should I Go?”

On this year's Fourth of July vacation—a holiday my family still celebrates (call us old fashioned)—my wife and I were walking along a Grand Haven, Michigan street when we overheard how, in the World Cup semifinals, Britain had just tied the U.S. women’s soccer team at 2-2. Unable to watch the remainder of

Eugenics Returns

The horrific recrudescence of European eugenicists marches on like a storm trooper’s hob-nailed boot to crush the inherent beauty and dignity of human life upon the drab gray, pagan altar of their globalist ideology. Defined as the “the practice or advocacy of controlled selective breeding of human populations (as by sterilization) [or by

Kentucky Fried Bureaucrats: ‘Take Them to Kansas City!’

Once more, life imitates art. And when politics is involved, the genre is usually comedy. This week’s aped art was legendary producer Samuel L. Bronkowitz’s cinematic masterpiece, “Kentucky Fried Movie.”In one unsettling scene of human cruelty, two henchmen drag a captured CIA agent in front of the villain, Dr. Klahn. Defiant, the CIA agent

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
