A Very Bad Week for #TheResistance

Expect the anti-Trump mob to be drinking heavily this weekend. The week has been filled with lots of bad news for them. Sadly for Trump foes, the U.S. economy is thriving: Market indicators this week continued to rise, pointing to a “robust” 2018. Jobless claims are near a 45 year-low, and “job openings

Want to Shut Up Leftist Professors? First Ignore Them

Instead, it’s getting noticed for its hard-left professors tweeting outrageous insults about President Trump, or violating students’ free-speech rights. First was the adjunct history professor who last year tweeted “Trump must hang.”

A Tall Skinny Grande Venti Scolding

On May 29, eight thousand Starbucks locations in the United States will close for their employees to undergo “education about racial bias.”  Bigotry, apparently, is judged by the company’s CEO to be a persistent institutional problem among the ranks of the notoriously progressive employees of the coffee chain. Starbucks might want to use

American Pravda Wins Pulitzer

The New York Times just won a Pulitzer Prize for “public service.” I’ve never met this “public” to whom the New York Times has provided some great service. Perhaps that is unfair. After all, the last article I read in the Gray Lady was actually enlightening. I had just finished my cultural enrichment

Alight With Good Intentions

I guess “Lit” is the new “Woke.” On April 14, David S. Buckel, a prominent attorney renowned for championing gay rights and environmental causes, doused himself with gasoline and burned himself alive in what he called a “protest suicide” to bring attention to our lack of action on the environment. His suicide note,

Clinton Coup Clan

There’s something happening here. A coup d'état, also known as a coup in both English and French, is “an illegal and overt seizure of the state by the military or other elites within the state apparatus.” Such overthrows have been common in the Third World, but now American Millennials, GenXers and Baby Boomers alike can

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

Zuckerberg’s A.I. Hope is a Free Speech Nightmare

The most terrifying thing about Mark Zuckerberg’s appearance on Tuesday before a special joint hearing of the Senate Judiciary and Commerce committees wasn’t anything he had to say about privacy, or the mishandling of millions of users’ personal data, or creepy Russian advertising in the 2016 presidential election. In fact, on those questions,
