Judicial Independence in the Government of the People

The most critical form of judicial independence, that is the independence to decide the law in a fair and impartial way even if that means deciding it in favor of a hated accused criminal, is rarely defended in popular media. But the concept is very popular  when used in favor of progressive political preferences, to

Christophobia and Islamophobia

A Christian man in Egypt is beaten by Muslims. “Islamophobia” is a real problem. Or so we’re led to believe by the usual suspects in the grievance industry par excellence, the Racism-Industrial-Complex (RIC). It’s a problem because, it is tirelessly declared, “Islamophobia” is only going to create more Islamic “extremists.” An article from

Is Immigration Still the Operative Term?

  We’ve been asked by Democrats and some Republicans to live with massive waves of immigration. But at some point immigration doesn’t begin to describe what’s happening, both with illegal and legal immigration. Let’s call it what it is. A variation of colonization that I call neo-colonization. Here’s the difference. Immigration in the past has

Constitutional Buffoonery from the Federal District Courts

The temporary nationwide injunctions placed on President Trump’s most recent executive order, issued March 6 (“Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States”) by two federal district courts are the latest skirmishes in progressive liberalism’s war against the idea of the sovereign nation-state and the exclusive citizenship that attaches to “separate and

Is the Department of Homeland Security Submitting to Jihad?

After an extensive career as a scientist working and studying in the Middle East, Philip Haney decided to put his extensive expertise and experience with Arabic culture and language to use for the American government after 9/11 by becoming a founding member of the Department of Homeland Security.

A Government of Laws, Not Men

I suspect that nearly all readers of American Greatness are familiar with John Adams’ famous statement about the rule of law in his Constitution for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, approved by the voters in 1780. “In the government of this commonwealth,” Adams wrote, “the legislative department shall never exercise the executive and judicial powers, or

Iraq: A War in Three Acts

Americans love a good story. Pop culture is littered with the fictional tales of heroic characters. The majority of stories today still follow a three-act structure that dates back to Aristotle. Epic films start with the hero called to action in the first act; then the tension rises in the second (how will our hero

Exiting Afghanistan Through India

For 16 years, the war in Afghanistan has raged with no end in sight. Indeed, it has become America’s longest war. Now that Donald Trump is president, the United States  has a pristine opportunity to conclude this costly war. President Trump has expressed a willingness to deploy more U.S. troops in order to win in Afghanistan. The
