The Threat to English

For decades, immigration enthusiasts have offered conflicting assurances to skeptics who perceive a lack of assimilation among newcomers. Multiculturalism is a great gift to the United States, so why worry? Also, assimilation is proceeding apace, so, again, why worry? The former assurance is generally directed at liberals, and the latter is directed at conservatives, but […]

Trump Promised a Wall and Delivered an Amnesty

President Trump promised the country a wall but instead delivered the biggest amnesty since 1986. Amnesty in this case doesn’t mean citizenship, it means de facto legal status by creating a new protected class of illegal aliens who are immune to detention, prosecution, and deportation. The law doesn’t stop there. Here are the worst of […]

Foggy Crossroads

On January 28 I wrote here that Donald Trump had always known that some of his promises, “e.g. opposition to abortion, stopping alien migration—were so integral to his identification with his supporters that any blatant infidelity to them would finish him,” and that his signing a “government funding bill without any money for a wall […]

Congress Sells Out Again

After spending the last 10 years debating border security—the last two of which were under unified GOP control—and then engaging in a 35-day shutdown the best Congress could muster this week was a 1,169 page bill that does nothing more than sustain the problem. The fix was in from the start. Democrats entered negotiations determined […]

An Independent America

Who are the friends of America? Who are the real enemies who hate America to the core of its being? In trying to answer these questions, the usual distinctions between conservative and liberal don’t apply anymore, especially since Donald Trump has been president. The idea of America is under assault today from those who inhabit […]

Progressing America Into the Abyss

Leftists self-identify as “progressives.” Yet anyone with a scrap of sanity and a rudimentary understanding of their philosophical antecedents, as well as their injurious policy prescriptions, objectively identifies the Left not as “progressive” but as “regressive.” Their incessant, implacable lust to destroy the American Revolution’s novel birth of individual freedom and replace it with an […]

Mass Immigration and Climate Change Doublethink

Doublethink, as articulated by George Orwell in 1984, “means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them.” Unfortunately, the modern left took Orwell’s book, which was written as a warning, and mistook it as an instruction manual. Perhaps nowhere else is doublethink more readily apparent than in […]

Donald Trump’s Annihilation of the Democratic Party

The nadir of the amoral egotism of what might broadly be called “Me-ism” has been reached by the avant garde of the Democratic Party in their race to the bottom of the electoral depths. The renunciation of any notions of sacrifice, patriotic pride, the spirituality of life, or the recognition of anything except the smash-and-grab […]

Trump’s Wall and a Plan to Stop Cartels at the Border

If you’ve been thinking Trump Derangement Syndrome couldn’t get any worse, consider the Democratic Party’s position on border security. Sitting behind President Trump during his State of the Union speech on Tuesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) spent much of the evening making faces at the back of his head. And when he asked members […]

No Wall, No Peace

Our government’s failure to secure the border has precipitated a political, economic and moral crisis. The fact that we not only permit, but by our dereliction, actively encourage gangsters to traffic in human beings across our border is a disgrace. It must end. If President Trump is planning to use executive authority to build the […]
