Aristotle said man is a rational animal. A more cynical observer might say he is a rationalizing one. Learning is hard enough on its own, but it is nearly impossible when personal biases cloud out clear thought. Such is the case with David French, a senior writer at National Review. On the 16th
A clear-headed foreign policy requires serious thought, not stale slogans. An op-ed by Representative Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) and Mike Gallagher (R-Wis.) in the Wall Street Journal headlined “Troops in the Mideast Keep Terror Away” exemplifies why. After $6 trillion, 6,000 American dead, and 17 largely fruitless years, Crenshaw and Gallagher argue that America
The Left fears men. Which is exactly why the corporate-media-activist ideological conglomerate is currently losing its collective mind over a viral video of young, white, Catholic men in MAGA hats smirking at an Indian. In the video, the Indian provocatively beats a drum a few inches from a teenager’s face. The young man
How dare Donald Trump call the media “the enemy of the people”! Doesn’t he know that journalists perform an indispensable role in protecting Our Democracy? Without them, who would do the necessary work of gleefully destroying the reputations and livelihoods of heartland Americans minding their own business? Afflict the comfortable and comfort the

Conservatives, including those of a nationalist bent, love to tout the universality of their principles and denigrate the “tribalism” of the Left. This is all well and good, save for one detail: Leftist tribalism marches on, unfazed. On
Gavin Long. Micah Johnson. James Hodgkinson. Frederick Scott. Emanuel Samson. These men have something in common, dear reader. Do you know what it is? Try answering without the aid of references. Difficult, no? How about an easier one. Who is Dylann Roof? You probably already have an image of him in your mind.
If you wish to understand America today, attend the Global Citizen Festival. Here you can see our institutions-media, political and corporate-march in perfect lockstep toward a new world order entirely disconnected from the nation's founding vision. Here you can see Cardi B and Jeff Flake on the same stage (sponsored by Citi Bank, Cadillac, and
The Elevator Women sniping Senator Flake in front of so many journalists was a deliberate move. And it worked beautifully. Public tongue-lashings of this sort are wonderfully effective against men. Flake was caught in an enclosed space, unable to escape, maneuver, or construct a hasty defense. Off guard and off kilter, he simply stuttered out
The National September 11 Memorial and Museum are deeply ugly. Those two gaping pits, a vision of the abyss, mar that tragic earth. Like gashes that never healed, but rather festered into black necrosis, the 9/11 memorial reveals a sickness; a sickness not of the body but of the soul. That day changed
Contrary to recent claims, Richard Spencer is not a “Wilsonian Progressive.” How could he be? Woodrow Wilson pushed for foreign war in the name of “Democracy,” saw the administrative state as the cornerstone of government action, and sought the spiritual uplift of Americans from the “hosts of sin” and a “heartless” economic system.
