James Hodgkinson, the Left, and Degrees of Moral Responsibility

In response to a recent article of mine on James Hodgkinson—the Bernie Sanders supporter and despiser of all things Republican who attempted to assassinate Republican congressmen in Alexandria, Virginia on June 14—a reader who self-identified as being “as far right as it gets” accused me of going “UNDER the gutter” for implicating the

The Way the Comey Hearing Should Have Gone Down, Day Two

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome back to the second and final day of the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence hearing with former FBI Director James B. Comey.

Trumping the Narrative

The Narrative is partly like quicksand. If you fall into it, struggling will hasten your envelopment and death. Best to relax, take some deep breaths, and half float, half swim out of danger.

The Real Collusion

Maybe it will be remembered as the weekend when, at long last, the media-Democrat complex overplayed its hand on the “Collusion with Russia” narrative. They are still having so much fun with the new “Jared back-channel to the Kremlin” angle, they appear not to realize it destroys their collusion yarn. Their giddiness is

On the Resistance, Building Campaigns, and Filibusters
