Ben Sasse has a new book out he'd like you to read. Of course he does. In the Wall Street Journal, he has an op-ed based on his new book, Them: Why We Hate Each Other—And How To Heal. Them, Sasse’s second book, follows swiftly on the heels of his first book published last year. I
Now that Justice Brett Kavanaugh is safely ensconced on the Supreme Court, I can finally talk about a recent op-ed by Claremont McKenna College professor George Thomas (this is a little thing called prudence, Sen. Sasse). In his piece, "Don't forget about Kavanaugh's troubling legal philosophy," Thomas wonders about Kavanaugh's method of constitutional interpretation: textualism.
Elite Evangelicals are puppets on strings being pulled by their ruling class masters. Case in point is Tim Keller's recent New York Times piece, which is a great example of how the elite Evangelical mind has been captured by worldly ends. Supposedly tackling the problem of how Christians fit into the two-party system, Keller instead treats us
Please check out Mark Pulliam's review of Peter Wallison's forthcoming short book, Judicial Fortitude: The Last Chance to Rein in the Administrative State. Wallison, who served in two posts during the Reagan administration and is now ensconced at the American Enterprise Institute, takes aim at the governing apparatus in modern America: the administrative state. Functioning as a rogue
Selena Zito was one of the few reporters who dared venture out into the heartland of America in 2016 and talk to Americans who were fed up with the DC Uniparty. She used the stories she collected of former Obama voters and Republicans who had enough of the feckless GOP Establishment for her columns and
According to the eulogies (really, ruling class propaganda) given at John McCain's funeral, his life now reads like that of former civil rights leaders turned politicians. Think of congressional mainstays such as Rep. John Lewis (D-GA), whose actions decades ago are wielded as weapons against those who have dared to criticize him during his subsequent
I didn't watch any part of the funeral for John McCain yesterday or read any news stories about what happened there and who said what. But I did glance at the headline of a write-up on the proceedings at The New Yorker, which says everything you need to know about what took place: https://twitter.com/NewYorker/status/1036103992210845696 It's pretty remarkable
One of the many revealing things that has happened since John McCain's death on Saturday (other than Democrats praising a man who, back in 2008, they labeled a racist, insane, over-the-hill politician who lost his grip on reality back in North Vietnam) is the controversy that erupted today over the flag at the White House.
The Cato Institute's resident dean for open borders pretty much sums up everything wrong with modern libertarianism (or at least a popularized, ruling class version of it): https://twitter.com/AlexNowrasteh/status/1032792735768563713 In the comment section to this tweet, he continues by stating that anyone who thinks otherwise (those dirty nationalists!) is practicing a "communism of the Right." For,
The giddycon "Right" is absolutely overjoyed over the news regarding Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen. David French, as usual, is all too happy to get yet another chance to shame his favorite group: Trump voters. https://twitter.com/DavidAFrench/status/1032027351708778496 But contra French, the choice isn't between Trump or Pence. It's between republican government or bowing down at the
