Are We All Libertarians Now?

No matter who wins the Democratic presidential primary, vice will be on the ballot in 2020. Almost all Democratic candidates have embraced legalizing marijuana, and one has even expressed support for legalizing prostitution. These developments are remarkable, but the candidates backing them are not exactly breaking ground. The real surprise is that they’re pandering. Over […]

Omar’s ‘All Too Human’ Politics of Dehumanization and Disingenuousness

Oh, boy. The Democrats and the media are pulverizing Representative Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) for her comments about President Trump. On Tuesday, Omar said it was silly to “equate” Presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump, adding that “one is human” and “the other is really not.” Omar’s dehumanizing language about Trump drew immediate condemnation from House […]

How Do You Solve a Problem Like Rashida?

Upon her accession to the U.S. House of Representatives last fall, practically the first words out of Rashida Tlaib’s mouth were: “We’re going to go in there and we’re going to impeach the motherf—er.” The object of the freshman Michigan Democrat’s derision was, of course, President Trump. This sentiment naturally got whoops and cheers from […]

Dual Loyalty Detectives

Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) recently bashed those U.S. Senators who voted against Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) legislation, charging that “they forgot what country they represent.” In similar style, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) cited political influence “that says it’s OK for people to push for allegiance to a foreign country.” Omar is also on record […]

Trump Should Militarize Our Immigration Courts

Political commentator Steve Cortes suggested recently that President Trump should declare a second national emergency on our southern border. The first such emergency was designed to divert funds towards wall construction, but Cortes argues that by itself won’t deter the current wave of migrants, mostly from Central America.

Another Double-Standard: Recusal Demands for Nunes but not Schiff

Two years ago this month, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) was in the midst of a political firestorm. As chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Nunes was uncovering the shocking news that the Obama Justice Department had launched an investigation into Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. On March 4, 2017, President Trump infamously tweeted he had discovered […]

‘Intersectional’ Democrats Reap What They Sow

The party that has spent years working to turn American politics into a mud pit of racial strife is finally reaping what it sowed. Once the exclusive province of campus leftists, “intersectionality” is the idea that all “oppressed and powerless” people ought to put their squabbles aside and unite in a common struggle. As they […]

Identity Politics and Dual Loyalties

It is common on the mainstream Right to complain about the rise of identity politics. All the talk of intersectionality and white privilege makes conservatives wince. They are already loud and proud in their anti-racism, so they’re confused and frustrated that it has not bought them more good will. Indeed, some proclaim the Democrats are […]

Illin’ Omar

Minnesota anti-Semite Ilhan Omar (D) has been on a tear. Late last month, at a political event at a Washington, D.C. bookstore, the freshman Democrat said she wanted “to talk about the political influence in this country that says it is OK to push for allegiance to a foreign country.” When her fellow Democrat, Representative […]

The 1972 Progressive Pathway to Oblivion

What is strange about the new envisioned progressive agendas for 2020 is that no serious Democratic presidential candidate next year could ever run on them. Instead, what we will see over the next few months are insidious efforts to ignore, disown, or recant endorsements of Democratic candidates for president. And if not, Democrats will be […]
