The General Warrant and the Politics of Personal Destruction

At her press conference following last week’s assassination attempt on Representative Steve Scalise and other Republican members of Congress, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi stated: “Somewhere in the 90s, Republicans decided on a politics of personal destruction as they went after the Clintons, and that is the provenance of it, and that is what

Trump’s Way Out of the Progressive Labyrinth

In every single week of the Trump presidency, the investigators and attorneys of FBI Director James Comey or, subsequently, of special counsel Robert Mueller, have leaked information that President Donald Trump was under investigation for either colluding with the Russians or obstructing justice—allegations so far without any substantiating evidence. In the case of

When Words Kill

As every young American is taught (or used to be taught) the Constitution’s First Amendment protects free speech. “Congress shall make no law…abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press…” We can say whatever we want. And that’s as it should be. Societies constraining the freedom of speech have invariably slid by

The Tyranny of Small Things

I recently spent an hour-and-a-half standing outside a Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles office, waiting for the privilege of paying $72 to renew my driver’s license. I stood outside because there was no room to stand inside: the small offices were entirely occupied by the rest of the line and two—only two—employees. With

The ‘Hundred Days’ Humbug

President Trump is criticized for things he has done and for things he has left undone. What is unreasonable is the additional arbitrary standard to which he, like all modern presidents, is held liable: what he has accomplished, and failed to, in his first hundred days in office. Why is the figure of

The Southern Poverty Law Center is a Hate Group

  The hilariously misnamed Southern Poverty Law Center is a non-profit group that purports to fight “hate and bigotry” and to seek “justice for the most vulnerable members of our society.” Though it makes the most of the goodwill and reputation earned in the 1960s, today they exist mainly to spread hatred, incite violence, and

A Nation Under Lawyers

We have become a nation of humorless aspiring lawyers. The bureaucratization of the American regime has affected the American soul in ways large and small—right down to how we think and act in the world around us. Reams of regulations control our everyday lives, from the type of light bulbs we use to the number
