“Will our Republic survive?” It is a fitting question for Memorial Day. For, as Abraham Lincoln noted in his Gettysburg Address, “It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced.” The work of preserving our freedom is
When President Trump took office, it only made sense that he would court the burgeoning tech industry for advice. After all, his campaign was built on Silicon Valley-style disruption, his publicly stated preference was to use the most successful businesses as a model for government, and even some of his trusted advisers came
That pretty much describes the first 125 days of the Trump administration. James B. Comey, Michael T. Flynn, and of course President Donald Trump himself have been the marquee names during the first four months or so of this drama-filled administration. Comey, the former FBI director, recommended on July 4, 2016, that no
If played correctly, the psychotic explosion of the Democrats and their allies in the jackal press over the Comey dismissal and his alleged memo can become a decisive victory for the president. The Mueller nomination, a hybrid arrangement that will be a supplementary investigation with the FBI, will push the question into a
Sunday afternoon, Andrew Kaczynski, Christopher Massie, and Nathan McDermott released their latest hit piece on a Trump Administration nominee. If their names are not familiar to you, they should be as they were the “reporters” who asserted that Monica Crowley plagiarized significant portions of her Ph.D. dissertation. In their latest piece, they assert
The president was widely seen as incompetent, naïve, hostile to the professional experts in the bureaucracy, if not an outright traitor, paid off by the nation’s ancient enemies.

For without its demonstrated hostility to Nixon particularly, and right-of-center Republicans generally, Watergate would not have been blown up into hysterical proportions. The fact is that Democratic scandals of comparable,
“Donald Trump is not being reasonable…. But, then, man does not live by reason alone, fortunately. Trump, who believes that excess can be a virtue, is as American as Manhattan’s skyline, which expresses the Republic’s erupting energies. He says the skyscraper is necessary because it is unnecessary. He believes architectural exuberance is good
The country is in a new era. Unfortunately, far too many of those who have grown comfortable as prominent spokespersons of the “conservative” media either don’t or won’t notice this. These self-avowed “conservatives”—they have been on radio and television airwaves for years—continue to prattle on as if it was 1994. They continue to
As we enter yet another day of unhinged, unsupported attacks on the president, it is a good time to take a moment to analyze where the motivations on both sides are. Those on the left, with their core of true believers in the legacy media, see themselves as fighting a heroic resistance battle.
