God’s Ways and Our Ways

Did you hear that Phil Robertson has a new book out? Yes, the “Duck Dynasty” patriarch, author of Happy Happy Happy, UnPHILtered, and (in a previous life) War and Peace, has just written The Theft of America’s Soul: Blowing the Lid Off the Lies That Are Destroying Our Country. You can tell by the title […]

‘Reasonable’ Conservatives

A few weeks ago, New York Times columnist Ross Douthat urged Republicans to give up their push for stricter voter ID laws. In making this argument Douthat cites a study suggesting that while stricter voter ID laws have no effect on voter turnout, let alone disproportionate effects on certain racial groups as Democrats have often […]

New Yorkers Do to Florida What Latin Americans Do to America

Given the constantly reiterated left-wing charge that opposition to massive immigration is racist and xenophobic, it is important to restate the truth: The reason for opposition to mass immigration into the United States—from almost anywhere in the world, whether legal or illegal—has nothing to do with race or ethnicity. The issue is entirely one of […]

Hate Crimes, Real and Imagined

Once again the country is spellbound by a series of fake hate crimes, while at the same time, refusing to hear the truth about real hatreds. To paraphrase Napoleon in Animal Farm, some types of hate are more equal than others. It makes me think of the time I was the victim of what today […]

Progressive Leftists vs. Common Sense

Have you heard this one? A federal judge has ruled that the all-male military draft is unconstitutional. How did you feel about this bit of news when you first learned of it? Did you think the ruling was ridiculous? An outrage? Did you feel hopeless about what is happening to our country? All of the […]

Why Do Blacks and Leftists Wish the Attack on Smollett Happened?

The reactions of many on the left to the case of Jussie Smollett prove two important things: There is little racism in America. The left—white and black—is morally and psychologically impaired. There is no doubt that most Americans on the left, including black Americans, are distraught over the fact that Smollet faked the “racist” attack […]

The University of Diversity Is Destroying America

America’s educational system is breaking, and the primary culprits are the diversity bureaucracy, now an industrial strength special-interest group that grows more powerful and more expansive every year. For years they have dominated America’s social sciences and humanities, and now they’re launching an assault on the hard sciences. If they are not stopped, they eventually […]

Yes, ‘This Is America, 2019’

There have been so far about three general reactions to the concocted Jussie Smollett psychodrama. One, and the most common, has been apprehension that Smollett’s lies will discredit future real incidents of hate crimes against gays and minorities. This could be a legitimate concern, given the tensions within a multiracial society. Yet, in fact, there […]
