The Sun Also Pounces

Like an ex-journalist and current lush from Pamplona who thinks no one knows he’s loaded because he guzzles vodka—we’ll call him Ernie—the legacy media is oblivious to how poorly their hollow claims to objectivity mask the stench of their bias. But if there was any doubt about the origins of the odor, venerable

Suffer the Children: The Regressives’ Totalitarian Imperative

If ever there was a textbook example of the Left’s totalitarian imperative, Noah Berlatsky provides it in his January 2 screed, “White kids, racism and the way privileged parenting props up an unjust system: White children are everywhere, but their whiteness is too often invisible and unspoken.” Yes, there is Berlatsky’s stale theme

Up the Populist!

I listened the other day to Tucker Carlson’s populist dirge on what’s ailing America. Then I perused some rejections, critiques, and commendations of it. Then I shrugged.

Communist China’s Huawei: ‘Déjà Vu All Over Again’

Back in the fall of 2007, I went on the U.S. House floor and locked horns with Communist China’s Huawei technology company and its American supporters in the private and public sectors. My conviction then was that the company constituted a threat to the security of the United States. I argued that the

The Left’s Civil Religion, Part Two: Heretics

As discussed when last we chatted, per Jean Jacques Rousseau, the regressive Left has been dragging humanity back to an allegedly pristine state of nature to escape corrupting civilization. Integral to the Left’s aims is foisting upon us soon-to-be noble savages a civil religion, the tenets of which must be believed over and
