Elizabeth Warren’s Desperate Trick

Tuesday night’s Democratic presidential primary debate in Iowa was a bore, as anyone might have guessed. The candidates talked about foreign policy, healthcare, child care, climate change, and how Donald Trump is very, very bad. They recited their platitudes and nonsolutions for everything from climate apocalypse to war in the Middle East, pointing to the

Credit Trump’s Restraint on Iran, But Beware Neocons Still Seeking War

There can be little doubt that president Donald Trump has won his standoff with Iran, but it was a close call. True, the most panicked predictions that America’s killing of Iran’s top general would lead to World War III have not come to pass. But those who were certain war with Iran would not erupt

Why We Need Heroes Like Jack Wilson

Unmixed admiration is the only appropriate response to Jack Wilson’s heroic intervention to stop the deadly shooting last month at West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement, Texas. With a single bullet, Wilson saved countless lives in his congregation. While Wilson has been humble, Americans across the country have been inspired by his heroic

Why Conservatism, Inc. Is Powerless Against Socialism

As America enters a new decade, a political realignment is happening. The Left, traditionally the party of the working class, now represents urban, liberal elites more interested in the latest permissive fashions than they are in what they see as the parochial concerns of their less affluent countrymen. In reaction, conservatism has aligned to an

Donald Trump Is
An American Hero

Isn’t it nice to hear someone speak plain truth? It’s something fading from our world—the courage to speak common sense without qualification, without the expected self-flagellation ordained by effete fools who set the rules everyone is supposed to follow. It’s also what makes Donald Trump a hero to millions of Americans. Trump’s impeachment-eve screed directed

If the Right Doesn’t Stand Against Porn, What Will It Stand For?

In America today broken families are the norm, weed is everywhere, and drag queens even read stories to children in school libraries. Despite these developments, many in the “conservative” camp continue to defend or impotently and helplessly throw up their hands in exasperation in response to the predictable, destructive fruits of liberalism. In the name

Democracy in Decline

In a recent piece at the Atlantic, Yoni Applebaum meditates with candid urgency on the consequences of the demographic elephant in the room: America, within our lifetimes, will become a majority-minority nation. According to Applebaum, Christian anxiety over this trend has led a Republican Party he sees as stubbornly wedded to racial heritage into the

Democrats to America: Be Grateful for Your Dispossession

Michael Bloomberg may be one of the wealthiest men in the world, but that doesn’t mean he can’t empathize with the little guy. The former New York City mayor and Democratic candidate for president spoke for all Americans when, speaking at a Mexican restaurant in Arizona, he said America needs an “awful lot more immigrants

Democrats Want to Manage, Not Represent, the People

After several weeks of hype, the impeachment of President Trump has turned out to be another ephemeral sideshow in the never-ending psychodrama of elite “resistance.” Americans are tuning out the noise, and there is little that the gatekeepers in the corporate leftist media can do about it, except to fret that the public is too

What Is Conservatism, Inc. Actually Conserving?

In the wake of the Donald Trump moment, conservatism is up for grabs: white identitarians, “Catholic integralists,” paleocons, and American nationalists all sense an opportunity for greater representation. But the bigger story is that the globalist, anti-nationalist, progressive “conservatism” that came before Trump isn’t yet quite dead, and it’s fighting for survival. The degree to
