The Needed Change

The needed change of the 1980s was a recognition that rolling back the Soviet Union not only was possible without war but in fact was essential to reduce the risk of nuclear annihilation. Recognizing that rolling back our globalized administrative state is not only possible but essential for averting America’s economic and environmental annihilation is […]

Donald Trump & The Conservative Cause

[Editor’s Note: Reprinted with permission from the Claremont Review of Books. The reply by Dr. John Marini should be read as well.] A political party that allows 17 candidates to compete for its presidential nomination is not a serious political party. A political party that allows its would-be presidents to debate one another silly—and I mean […]

Dropping The Big One

the nuclear code slur against trump

He lies. He’s unstable.  He’s a sociopath. He doesn’t have the right temperament. He can’t be trusted. And now, because nothing succeeds like excess, the hyperbole must be ratcheted up to what must be its logical conclusion – he’ll start a nuclear war and kill us all.  Such are the criticisms of Donald Trump from […]

Trump’s Unqualified So…Evan McMullin?

nevertrump evan mcmullin

Trump is unqualified. He’s no conservative. He’s a vulgar, know-nothing boob who cannot be allowed to sit on the furniture in the White House.  At least that’s what the smart guys tell us – the guys who know better than the voters, the guys who are “true conservatives” (just ask them).  And now they have […]

Hey Bud, Let’s Uniparty!

single fusion party of globalists

I don’t usually write about life hacks but here’s one: If you have a secret, don’t tell Bill Kristol. The Weekly Standard editor and #NeverTrump movementarian told CNN today that despite Speaker of the House Paul Ryan’s half-hearted, but still public, endorsement of Donald Trump, he doesn’t really mean it. Kristol echoed President Obama, wondering […]

How #NeverTrump Bagged the Nomination for Trump

There is an excellent and insightful piece at Real Clear Politics by Jeffrey Anderson on the way center-right conservatives (of the sort who backed either Marco Rubio or Jeb Bush and then became #NeverTrump) made four key errors that virtually assured the nomination of Donald Trump.

Lincoln’s Party – And Trump’s, Too

gop smart set should remember the real abraham lincoln

  So-called movement conservatives who are lamenting the “demise of the party of Lincoln” this week would do better to read a good book on Lincoln. Not a book-length tract by one of their own number that contrives to conclude, mirabile dictu, that Lincoln was a movement conservative himself, but an account of the flesh-and-blood […]

DTJ, Melania, Mrs. Fields & A Few Other Musings

  The commentariat, helplessly observing the end of a failed eight year experiment in leftism, appeasement, and racialism, has but one basic approach to the RNC speeches this week: take on family members as either plagiarists or as better than the nominee.  More on the plagiarism in a moment, but the main of today’s commentary […]
