No, White Communities Aren’t Less Safe than Diverse Ones

The Los Angeles Times last week published a provocative claim for our “woke” era: “White people should be more afraid of other whites than they are of people of color.” So argues Mike Males, a senior research fellow at the San Francisco-based Center on Juvenile and Criminal Justice. On the face of it,

It’s Time for Congress to Take Action on ‘Sanctuary’ Jurisdictions

Just days after taking office, President Trump issued Executive Order 13768 to block certain federal funds from flowing to sanctuary jurisdictions—that is, municipalities, cities and states which deliberately choose not to enforce federal immigration law within their borders. Yet, in what seems to be a contradictory effort, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen

President Trump last week met with California public officials who oppose the state’s sanctuary law which, as the president said, “provides safe harbor to some of the most vicious and violent offenders on Earth, like MS-13 gang members putting innocent men, women and children at the mercy of sadistic criminals.” California Governor Jerry

Yes, NPR: Illegal Immigration Does Increase Violent Crime

As members of an alien caravan beat their fists at the gates, the experts provide the rationalization for inviting them in.

Calexit 2020? Yeah, Right!

California sometimes reminds me of an old Mad Magazine novelty record, “It’s a Super-Spectacular Day.” Maybe you remember it. The song starts out as a jaunty little ditty: “It’s a great big beautiful, wonderful, incredible super-spectacular day!” All the bells are ringing and a little bird’s singing on your window sill ... Until

Clown World

As we all learn as children, “In an emergency, dial 911.” One likes to think that this essential service will work when you need it. Indeed, it needs to work all of the time. And it would, but for the fact that we live in Clown World. The Creshenda Williams saga reveals the

America Has a Loneliness Epidemic

And, yes, a great deal deadlier than the “assault weapons” some people are so obsessed with banning lately. A gun might kill more quickly, but loneliness will hasten death as surely as a bullet. One

Poison-Pill Migration

Beginning in the 1970s, the Republican Party’s center of support shifted from the Northeast and Midwest to the Southwest and Southeastern United States.
