What’s At Stake in Alabama

Are we “really capable or not of establishing good government from reflection and choice” or are we “forever destined to depend for [our] political constitutions on accident and force.” That’s the question Alexander Hamilton asked during the fight to ratify the Constitution. And the special election in Alabama should cause us to ask

Fake Truth

­The most effective way for the media to have refuted Donald Trump’s 24/7 accusations of “fake news” would have been to publish disinterested, factually based accounts of his presidency. The Trump record should have been set straight through logic and evidence. So one would think after a year of disseminating fake news aimed

Washington Post: Where Conservatism Dies in Bitterness

The Washington Post might want to roll out a new motto in 2018. Instead of “Democracy Dies in Darkness” perhaps the paper should try, “Conservatism Dies in Bitterness.” Since Donald Trump’s election, the Post has become an asylum—er, home—for conservative sore-losers who cannot get over the fact that Trump won the presidency over

Let’s Thank Mueller for His Service—And Show Him the Door

Show me the man, and I’ll find you the crime.” So said Lavrentiy Beria, the head of the Soviet secret police, to his boss Josef Stalin.

Smashing the Oligarchy

Need more proof that a corrupt oligarchy rules America? Look no further than the forced retirement of John Conyers, who sat in Congress for more than half a century.

The Arc of History Bends Toward . . . What, Exactly?

One of the most dishonest and pernicious phrases in the cultural-Marxist lexicon—much favored by Barack Hussein Obama during his eight years in office—goes like this: “The arc of history bends toward justice.” The former president borrowed the phrase from Martin Luther King, Jr., who lifted it from the abolitionist Theodore Parker; attached to the

Maybe Jeff Sessions Has Already Wrapped My Christmas Present

As we close out this unprecedented year of remarkable happenings, it’s a good time to reflect on what would be the best Christmas present for Americans on the Right. One choice would be a constitutionalist replacement for Justice Anthony Kennedy. That would definitely fit the bill though, realistically, it would have to wait

Is a President’s Character His Presidency’s Destiny?

In the age of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, “character is destiny” sermons are now frequent. Clearly, a president who is “not a crook” or a philanderer is preferable to the alternative. But is that simple moral calculation sufficient when this one person can make the lives of 330 million at least somewhat

A Case Against Globalism

The concept of globalism burdens American society, and this encumbrance comes mainly from the political and social Left. We rarely discuss what globalism is and many Americans don’t seem to see the grave dangers that it represents. We hear phrases like “global citizenship,” or “citizen of the world,” which are supposed to evoke
