While attending a vigil for the shooting victims at two New Zealand mosques last Friday evening, a visibly pregnant Chelsea Clinton was accosted by a pair of left-wing “activists.” The two specifically blamed Clinton for the atrocity.

How Gullible Are We?

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) recently drew a large, standing-room only crowd at Austin’s popular SXSW Festival. By most accounts, Ocasio-Cortez’s remarks were met with rapt attention and thunderous applause. Yet, as Karl Rove detailed in a recent Wall Street Journal op-ed, what she had to say was reminiscent of  the predictable, doctrinaire rants that you’d […]

Student Council

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) wants your teenager to vote for president. That’s right. They seriously want kids to go to the polls.

The Battle of the Boyne and the Laboratory of the States

Former San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, now governor of California, heard a still, small voice the other night. The voice said, “Gavin, the intentional killing of another person is wrong.” So His Excellency stepped forth the next day and announced he was taking steps to close every military installation in the state.

Big Tech and Social Media Giants Just Got Put on Notice

Social media giants are getting some unwelcome attention from the highest levels of government. In response to recent revelations that their censorship of conservative content has been even more blatant and severe than previously imagined, President Trump is now endorsing the idea of taking government action to rein in their power. “Actually it’s incredible that […]

The Mueller Report Will Be a Hit Job

The people who thirst for justice over Washington’s continued attempts to deny Donald Trump the power of the presidency make a mistake in treating Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe as an actual whodunnit. If this were an Agatha Christie novel, it would have ended with the revelation that the investigation was sourced in Hillary Clinton […]
