President Trump’s SOTU: Americans Are Dreamers Too

In spite of the fact that the speech was too long (any speech that runs longer than 7 minutes is too long) I loved President Trump’s SOTU. It was filled with a love of America, pride in our military, respect for our flag, and an almost mystical vision of the American people and their unique […]

The Second Civil War

Last Sunday, my friend Daniel Greenfield delivered a brilliant speech to the South Carolina Tea Party Coalition Convention. Daniel explains that no matter how many elections Republicans win, the Democrats, which is to say the radical left, always nullify the election by waging a ruthless a culture war that is a toxic mix of Orwellian […]

Sorry For the Silence

My computer is having a nervous breakdown, hence the silence these past few days. I’ve been consulting with computer people all over the place but my little laptop seems to have gone blooey.  Thanks for all your concerned emails, comments, and for your patience. I’m hoping to be back online in a few days.

IslamoNazi Abbas Digs His Own Grave

Dr. Mordechai Kedar, who knows more about the Arab-Muslim world than most Arab-Muslims, explains the two-and-a half-hour rant delivered by Mahmoud Abbas. World leaders seemed shocked, just shocked by the sheer looniness and Castro-like length of the Abbas rant. But these overbred, overeducated members of the diplomatic corps have conveniently ignored Abbas’ infamous history: he […]

The Inconvenient Truth About the Republican Party

When you think of the Republican Party, what comes to mind? If you’re like many Americans, you may associate the GOP with racism, sexism, and general inequality. It’s a commonly pushed narrative by left-leaning media and academia, but as former Vanderbilt Professor of Political Science Carol Swain explains, the Republican Party was actually responsible for […]

Protests in Iran Undermine a Key Premise of the Nuclear Deal

I’m pretty sure that most of us agree that a nuclear North Korea is a global threat. Four American administrations and the best and the brightest in the State Department have misread and mishandled the North Koreans at every step. Instead of accepting the obvious fact that some cultures do not share the same values […]

The Murder of Rabbi Raziel Shevach, z’l

Rabbi Raziel Shevach was murdered by IslamoNazis on Tuesday night in the land of Israel. The 35 year old father of six was driving on a highway when his car was sprayed with bullets. The Arab Muslims who call themselves Palestinians—a faux nationality dreamed up by the KGB during the Cold War—are publicly celebrating the […]

Democrats Go Full Soviet Medical

 Communist regimes have aways made common cause with useful idiot intellectuals to oppress the enemies of the state. The old Soviet Union routinely used morally pliable psychiatrists to make the case for the “insanity” of their opponents. In this way dissidents were imprisoned and, um, treated, which is to say tortured, by state psychiatrists.

How to Turbocharge the American Economy

Roughly half of the United States’ workforce depends on small businesses thriving. But high taxes and intrusive government regulations hurt these businesses and their workers. How would tax cuts for these small businesses benefit the U.S. economy and help just about everyone?

Iran and the Moral Cowards of the Left

Former members of the Obama administration are lining up to lecture President Trump and the rest of us that the best thing to do in support of the oppressed Iranian people is… silence. Was that their position when it came to apartheid South Africa? Of course not.

New Year, Old Hollywood: 2018

After one year of the Trump presidency we are hopeful and optimistic. Obama’s JV team, ISIS, has been nearly wiped out. Neil Gorsuch sits on the Supreme Court. The Keystone pipeline is, at last, open. The individual mandate is gone. Which spells the beginning off the end for Obamacare. More and more federal lands are […]
