Trump goes for the Fundamentals: America and Western Civilization are exceptional.

  While Leftists of all stripes continue to spit out their rage at their shocking setback last Election Day, serious Conservatives are watching, with cautious but growing optimism,  Donald Trump’s mission slowly taking concrete shape. Remember this man is a builder of buildings and businesses by trade who deals in results, not mere abstractions. “There is nothing like our community of...

Free speech vs. the anti-Trump Fascists

To the surprise and relief of 60 million Americans, the election of Donald Trump reassured us that power can still be peacefully transferred in this country. Stodgy squares that we are, some of us still insist on following rules, laws, the Constitution, the slow and painful process of legal reform that can only be enacted...

Released from the suffocation of Political Correctness:

Released from the suffocation of Political Correctness:Not so much “an eagle soaring over prison walls…as a dump truck that…has smashed our prison gate off its hinges”

“A Trump presidency was not how most conservatives imagined we would escape the soft-totalitarianism of our PC jail. I imagined the liberation movement as an eagle soaring over prison walls. Trump’s populist insurrection, as it happens, is a dump truck that has smashed our prison gate off its hinges.” What is this sudden gust...

Feeding The Crocodile, Hoping It Will Eat Me Last…

Winston Churchill once said, “An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile hoping it will eat him last.” On September 11, Christopher Stevens, a career diplomat, became one of the first Americans in Libya to feed the crocodile of Ansar Al-Sharia and learned too late that while appeasers may hope to be eaten last,...

The Spirit of Geert Wilders

When I was asked to write a foreword to Geert Wilders’ new book, my first reaction, to be honest, was to pass. Mr. Wilders lives under 24/7 armed guard because significant numbers of motivated people wish to kill him, and it seemed to me, as someone who’s attracted more than enough homicidal attention over...

Dependence Day

Dependence Day

If I am pessimistic about the future of liberty, it is because I am pessimistic about the strength of the English-speaking nations, which have, in profound ways, surrendered to forces at odds with their inheritance. “Declinism” is in the air, but some of us apocalyptic types are way beyond that. The United States is...
