Americanization: An American Idea That Works

The Trump Era is iconoclastic as much as it is mythoclastic, with one chimera slain after another. But some lies die harder than others. Alex Nowrasteh, the Cato Institute’s senior immigration policy analyst, is a self-described “Globalist [and] Elitist.” Who better to lecture Americans on patriotism?

Dred Scott? Seriously?

The radical Left’s resort to ad hominem attacks and allegations of “racism” against their political opponents has become so commonplace that the charges have become virtually meaningless. Apparently, the open-borders Right now thinks that by joining the catcalls, they can resurrect some of the old sting. How else to explain the recent spate
