Mueller at the Crossroads

Robert Mueller was appointed special counsel in May 2017 in reaction to a media still gripped by near hysteria over the inexplicable defeat of Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election. For nearly a year before Mueller's appointment, leaks had spread about collusion between Russia and the Donald Trump campaign that supposedly cost

The Hardening of Leftist Contempt

Last week, as former National Review writer Kevin D. Williamson was defenestrated abruptly from his brand-new post as token “conservative” columnist for the Atlantic over his hardline stance on abortion, I was going through a bit of an abrupt left-wing defenestration of my own. So, Kevin: #MeToo. I was curtly and unexpectedly barred

Whatever the Left Touches, It Ruins

The only way to save Western civilization is to convince more people that leftism—not liberalism—is a nihilistic force. Quite literally, whatever the Left touches it ruins. So, here is a partial listing of the damage done by the Left and the Democratic Party: The most obvious—and, therefore, the one more and Americans can

Why Kevin Williamson Matters

Any rational person’s list of the most intelligent and pungent columnists now writing will perforce include the name Kevin Williamson, late of National Review and, as of Thursday, late of The Atlantic as well. And anyone with a working internet connection knows that Williamson, hired to a chorus of drooling leftoid obloquy by

Don’t Ask this Mexican

Gustavo Arellano is not that smart. He presents a case study into the victim mentality of La Raza. Arellano, if you don’t know him, is the former publisher and editor of OC Weekly in Southern California.  I first read him in the Los Angeles Times in 2006 with a piece called “Raza Isn't

When the EPA Was Really Corrupt

Who said this? “The EPA is one of the most toxic places in the federal government to work. If you don’t get rid of the toxicity of the employees at the EPA, we are doing a great disservice to this country. I have serious questions about [the EPA administrator’s] ability to actually administrate.”

Why is the Media Suddenly So Interested in the EPA?

Funny what happens when a Republican wins the White House. The media mob suddenly develops an interest in transparency and fiscal responsibility. This week—in a story that has been developing over several months—all eyes are on the Environmental Protection Agency. For eight years, President Obama’s two EPA administrators—Lisa Jackson and Gina McCarthy—received very

Have You Seen Your Leaker, Baby, Standing in the Shadow?

Well, I was just passin’ the time . . .” Though I prefer reading back issues of Creem magazine to current editions of “news” publications, and despite my best efforts to drown out the present cacophonous political discourse beneath the deafening blast of a Marshall stack, by happenstance I stumbled upon “hot news”—i.e.,
