The Cost of Doing Nothing About Venezuela

The War Party in Washington, D.C. is demanding yet another American-led “humanitarian” military intervention, this time in Syria. Yet, for all of their virtue signaling against the evil of Bashar Assad (and he’s certainly not a good guy), there is a shocking degree of silence about the collapsing totalitarian, rogue regime to our south,

How Do We Say the Things We Cannot Say?

Society becomes polarized and impoverished when obvious truths are denied. To address the ensuing malaise, government expands. When government expands, government unions flourish. And there are few things generally less understood yet more consequential than the symbiosis between expanding government and government unions. On nearly every controversial issue of significance, certain perspectives of

The Blair Kitsch Project

The insufferably honest chap who cajoled Great Britain into the Iraq War based on “intelligence” not even Buzzfeed would credit, thinks his countrymen’s historic vote to leave his beloved European Union was “riddled with lies.” Tony Blair, who touted a “sexed-up” dossier to jump into bed with president George W. Bush before ablazing

Good Riddance, Mr. Speaker

In 2016, Wisconsin turned red for Donald Trump but Paul Ryan’s Janesville remained stubbornly blue—so perhaps it is no surprise that the speaker of the House won’t seek re-election. For Republicans, this is an unalloyed good. For his entire career, Mr. Ryan has been the wunderkind who couldn’t deliver. As the No. 2

Can Anything Shock a Khan?

London sautéed in blood this week, as its furied denizens stabbed, shot, and robbed, eclipsing for the first time New York City’s murder rate. Meanwhile, Mayor Sadiq Khan, darling of the anti-Trump British faction, schmoozed and selfied with preening liberal groupies in Texas. But, don’t worry. All is well on this sceptred isle.

Citizenship Should Count in Census

Our system of government is, at least technically, that of a republic. In the original Constitution, state legislatures chose Senators, and, even now, an Electoral College technically elects the president. But the House of Representatives was and remains the “people’s chamber” and is supposed to represent the people in a “one man, one vote”

Why the Leadership of Both Parties Is Lax on Immigration

When then-candidate Donald Trump announced his presidential bid in 2016, he did so with a bang. Right out of the gate, he took on one of the deepest and long-simmering dysfunctions in our republic—illegal immigration. Never one for subtlety when an opportunity for the dramatic presents itself, Trump used what some found to

Don’t Ask this Mexican

Gustavo Arellano is not that smart. He presents a case study into the victim mentality of La Raza. Arellano, if you don’t know him, is the former publisher and editor of OC Weekly in Southern California.  I first read him in the Los Angeles Times in 2006 with a piece called “Raza Isn't
