‘For the People’ Is a Censorship Bill, Plain and Simple

Campaign finance reform is all about “getting money out of politics.” Just ask any proponent and they’ll tell you. At eye-rolling, mind-numbing length. As memes go, however, “getting money out of politics” is effective. It resonates. It sticks. But it isn’t entirely true. Money is, as Jesse Unruh famously said, “the mother’s milk of politics.” […]

A Million-Dollar Punch

President Trump on March 2 announced he would issue an executive order addressing free speech on college and university campuses. The order itself hasn’t been issued, and so far there has been little indication of what it might say. That hasn’t stopped a torrent of criticism aimed at what Trump might do. The higher education […]

Trump Has Saved the Free Speech Movement

He took a hard punch in the face for all of us.” With these words, President Donald Trump transformed Hayden Williams, the young conservative campus activist who was viciously punched in the face at UC Berkeley last month, from a victim to conservative folk hero. Trump went further. With Williams looking on in starstruck awe, […]

Violating the Confessional Will Make Bad Catholics and Bad Americans

California legislators want to force Catholic priests to break the sacramental seal of confession and reveal what penitents disclose in cases of suspected child abuse or neglect. Senate Bill 360 by Jerry Hill of San Francisco would achieve this by designating priests—and all clergy, in fact, regardless of religious affiliation—as “mandatory reporters” of such crimes. […]

Each week, as the thundering host of Democratic seekers of their party’s 2020 presidential nomination scramble for attention and try to outflank their rivals to the left, that party rolls out a new policy proposal that lurches further away from where the solid center of American politics has always resided. The most transformative presidents, Franklin […]

Reject the ‘Wrong on Both Sides’ Dodge

Now that the media, the Left, and their usual conservative allies have failed to destroy young Nick Sandmann and the other Covington Catholic High School boys who attended the March for Life last weekend, they seem to be falling back on the old “wrong on both sides” standby. Activist Nathan Phillips, the 64-year-old Native-American “elder,” […]

What the Covington High Schoolers Taught America

What is the real lesson of the Covington Catholic School incident last week at the Lincoln Memorial? Decent Americans are rightly appalled at the deliberate lies propagated by the “mainstream” media, the knee-jerk surrender to Leftist narratives by allegedly “conservative” commentators, and the resultant abuse and death threats hurled at children and their families since […]

MAGA Men Unashamed

The Left fears men. Which is exactly why the corporate-media-activist ideological conglomerate is currently losing its collective mind over a viral video of young, white, Catholic men in MAGA hats smirking at an Indian. In the video, the Indian provocatively beats a drum a few inches from a teenager’s face. The young man doesn’t flinch; […]

#Quityerbitchin: My Day at the Women’s March

Imagine my surprise when I showed up to participate in my local Women’s March, only to find the streets empty and a lone dog sniffing a trash canister. I expected hordes of women (and the men who stand behind them!), eager to make their opinions known to the world about how downtrodden we are today […]

In Defense of Philip Anschutz

The late William F. Buckley, Jr., published a book several decades ago titled Gratitude, in which, while making a case for mandatory community service, he argued that gratitude is one of the distinctively conservative virtues. Gratitude, he reasoned, nourishes continuity in society while its opposite—resentment—provokes discontent and disruption. Buckley was hardly the first to say […]
