Trump Has Broken the Apology Hypnosis on Race

He broke me,” Kathy Griffin famously said of our 45th President as she gazed, narcissistically, upon her self-inflicted wounds after incomprehensibly and symbolically decapitating the man Politico once called an outsider and an outer-borough brawler. Many Americans of the conservative persuasion have been waiting for a brawler who would fight the good fight

The Perpetual Outrage Machine

The media’s 10-month panic attack triggered by Donald Trump’s inauguration shows no signs of abating. Every news cycle is filled with breathless reports of yet another “scandal” that could lead to Trump’s removal from office. News of a federal grand jury’s indictments of former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and his associate, Richard

Conservatism Needs a Reformation

Yesterday was the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s start of what became known as the Protestant Reformation. The Reformation was launched and gained traction because of a belief that an institution, long beloved and promising salvation to its believers, had grown remote, confused, corrupt, and ineffective. Today another institution is facing a similar

Nothing Burger With Wheeze

Given the ocean of blaring red type with which the Drudge Report greeted the news of the indictment of Paul Manafort and Richard Gates on Monday morning, you might have thought that here, at last, was the smoking gun in the Trump-colludes-with-Ruskies-to-snatch-the-election-from-Hillary narrative. I have no doubt the collective hearts of Max Boot,

When Fantasy Trumps Reality

The enemy of empiricism is ideology. Translated that means politics make people see the world as they want it to be, rather than as it is. Take the NFL. Any disinterested observer could see that since 2016 and the beginning of Colin Kaepernick’s crusade to sit or kneel during the National Anthem, the

Dems’ Russia Collusion Ruse: ‘Blame Trump and Hope for the Best’

When asked about the Russian collusion scandal, Hillary Clinton opined: "I think it's probably bigger than Watergate because it's about the future." Former Director of National Intelligence James “The” Clapper concurred, claiming the collusion case “pales” in comparison to Watergate. Today, we can see they weren’t just boasting. They were, in fact, correct.

This Isn’t News, It’s CNN

Those who sit atop the commanding heights of American culture and politics continue to treat Donald Trump and his voters with disdain and contempt. To this day, we are told that Trump’s base is powered by “white rage,” Trump voters are moved only by “racism and sexism” as Hillary Clinton told an adoring

Better Than Football

For the politically demented, 2016 was a vintage year. Well, at least for those whose blood warms when seeing their foes splay and spasm like wounded squid. Watching pious progressives meltdown in real-time has become something of a spectator sport. Now, this sounds a little abrasive, perhaps. But after eight years of slumberous

Kelly Exposes Ugliness on the Left, Limpness on the Right

Once again, the Left—in its frenzy to deploy any weapon at hand to damage President Trump—made the critical mistake of allowing us to peer behind the curtain and see what they’re really up to.   Democrats and their accomplices in the media attempted to gin up controversy following the deaths of four service
