What Is Conservatism, Inc. Actually Conserving?

In the wake of the Donald Trump moment, conservatism is up for grabs: white identitarians, “Catholic integralists,” paleocons, and American nationalists all sense an opportunity for greater representation. But the bigger story is that the globalist, anti-nationalist, progressive “conservatism” that came before Trump isn’t yet quite dead, and it’s fighting for survival. The degree to

Clearing the Air on the Right

When I started Turning Point USA at the age of 18, I was often guilty of applying a “purity” test when discussing issues or evaluating politicians and activists. For example, if someone wasn’t promoting a purely free-trade solution to America’s problems, I wasn’t listening. Over the past three years, on this issue and many others,

Global Media War on Nationalists Targets Trump, Bolsonaro

While the globalist media would never have you believe it, the leaders of three of the biggest economies in the world are finally putting the average working man above multinational corporations, costly trade deals, and politically correct immigration policies. The result? Lo and behold, they’re getting things done. It’s a wave that began with the

Beware of Washington’s Foreign Policy Establishment Blob

Beware of the blob. That’s either a kitschy Burt Bachrach tune from the 1950s, a warning about Washington’s permanent foreign policy establishment, or the takeaway from watching witnesses in the impeachment hearings. At one time, the State Department was accused of harboring secret Soviet spies, à la Alger Hiss. Today, the harbor is filled with

Neglect of Foreign Policy Led to the Deep State

Questions of foreign policy, particularly those of war and peace, are among the most critical in politics. A lost war can destroy an empire and erase a nation. Victory can attain safety, security, and prosperity for many generations. An inconclusive campaign—such as our neverending stalemate in Afghanistan—can sap national confidence and shatter the minds and

America Should Not Abandon the Arctic

From the end of the 19th and throughout the 20th century, Russian leaders believed that rapid, mass industrialization would modernize Russia, and make their country competitive with the West. Yet, Russia (and, later, the Soviet Union) was never able to match the productive powers of the Western states. By 2000, as George Friedman assessed, “Russia

A DACA Ruling Won’t Solve the DACA Dilemma

The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday heard highly anticipated arguments in the lawsuit challenging President Trump’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. President Barack Obama created the program by executive action in 2012, after Congress refused to pass the Dream Act, which would have given legal status and a path

Anatomy of China’s Influence Operation

Washington’s obsession with foreign interference in U.S. elections drove the three-year fixation on Russia and morphed into a compulsive fascination with the darker corners of the Ukraine (are there any bright corners in that benighted land?). Once again the Pharisees strain at gnats but swallow a camel. If they are concerned about a foreign power

Democrats Are the Enemy of a DACA Fix

Americans demand that our immigration laws be enforced and clarified, and demand that the economic and national security quagmire issue of illegal immigration be remedied, once and for all. Illegal immigration is a bipartisan failure, which goes to show that bipartisanship is highly overrated. It usually just means both sides are wrong. The U.S. Supreme

Escalating Cartel Violence Demands a U.S. Response

The horrific murders of nine American women and children in Mexico last week has left the country reeling—and exposed Mexico as a cartel-led, warlord state that is an increasing threat to U.S. national security. The daylight attack occurred less than 100 miles from the Arizona border in the northern Mexican state of Sonora. Women and
