EU and Anglo-American Interests Differ: Peter Hitchens Was Right

Two years ago, as a fresh doctoral researcher in the United Kingdom, I wrote an essay called “The Grand Strategy Debate London is Avoiding,” and submitted it to a top tier center-right newspaper in London. Needless to mention, it was rejected. No one would believe at that time that the European Union could

Illegal U: An Immigration Scam in Plain Sight

The often desperate measures foreigners take to enter our borders—crossing deserts being packed into trucks, and surviving unspeakable brutalities—rightly provoke our anger and evoke our pity. Because of the pathos involved in this kind of illegal entry, we often overlook the fact that there is a far safer and common  way for would-be

Encouraging a Migration Explosion

Are they doing it on purpose? Of course they are. America’s progressive elite has disdain for Americans who refuse to embrace their globalist, “borderless world,” and anti-American agenda. Consequently, the progressives have decided to replace the American people with people better suited to help enact their ambitions. For a glimpse into the future they

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

Is Tolerance a Virtue?

We know what the Left hates about conservatives. In her losing campaign for president, Hillary Clinton articulated her litany of the deplorables: “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic—you name it.” You’ll note that each one of these indictments is part of a taxonomy, a pseudo-scientific cultural-Marxist system of “isms” designed to categorize and thus dehumanize

Where Else Do Establishment Republicans Have to Go?

In a recent column, I advised conservatives and populists not to alienate less doctrinaire conservatives because they need their votes in general elections. A number of readers pointed out they have reason to be angry with “the establishment,” especially on matters like immigration and government spending. They have a great point. Just as

Jihadist Insurgencies and Conservative Priorities

Western conservatives need to internalize the lessons of previous policy failures and adjust accordingly. In a recent statement, the MI5 chief Andre Parker said that Britain is facing the most severe and unprecedented threat of Islamic terrorism. The United Kingdom is seeing “a dramatic upshift in the threat” post attacks in Westminster, Manchester, on

Crossing the Trump Rubicon

We are in a veritable war of competing visions. The strife inside the two parties is irrelevant—when compared to the larger existential war for the soul of America. Like it or not, Donald Trump in fits and starts has chosen not to accommodate the progressive vision. But in most unlikely fashion he leads
