Information Darkness Is Coming (Unless . . . )

Just over six years ago, I attended Google’s Political Innovation Summit in New York City. Over the course of the day, it dawned on me that, in the not-too-distant future, Google and other social media companies like Facebook and Twitter would have the power to control and manipulate information flow in unforeseen and dramatic ways.

‘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.” […]

No More Dirty Deeds from Morris Dees

The Southern Poverty Law Center just fired one of its founders. We know practically nothing about why the SPLC fired Morris Dees and so it is fruitless to speculate about his supposed transgressions. But we all know something about hate. Most conservatives have been the object of hate over the past few years. Many have […]

The Frightening Power of Social Media Bans

We may have reached the point where not having a Facebook or a Twitter account is something like not having a Social Security number—with this ominous difference: a faceless identity-studies major within the bowels of a tech company can take your accounts away from you forever. I understand that the number of people who have […]

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, […]

Memo to Amazon: Free Woody from #MeToo Jail

It’s time for a jailbreak. Every year from 1969 to 2017, auteur filmmaker Woody Allen released a movie. Every single year. Many of them were masterpieces. “Bullets Over Broadway,” “Hannah and Her Sisters,” “Annie Hall,” “Manhattan,” and “Match Point” are among what I consider his works of genius. Not all of Allen’s films were great, […]

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; […]
