How Do You Solve a Problem Like Ilhan Omar?

Nothing in the Constitution requires that members of Congress either be born in the United States or have at least one American parent. We’ve got plenty of foreign-born politicians, and always have; in the U.S. Senate alone, right now, Ted Cruz was born in Canada, Mazie Hirono is from Japan, and Tammy Duckworth was born […]

Do Americans Today Still Deserve Liberty?

Victor Davis Hanson’s brilliant essay, “Autopsy of a Dead Coup,” describes how America’s leviathan bureaucracy effectively attempted a coup against a democratically elected president to abrogate the surprising 2016 election result and continue onward, unabated, in its warped agenda for the country. This “deep state” of unelected, unaccountable, government bureaucrats, whose identities remain obscure to […]

Pigs on Two Legs Turn on Each Other

Tennis great Martina Navratilova until recently had long been coronated as a social justice trailblazer. She was one of the first marquee celebrity athletes to come out as gay, and then to advocate lesbian issues in and out of sports. But suddenly the icon seems out of step with her progressive legend status. Navratilova had […]

The Unforgiving Religion of Leftism

For all the talk on the Left about love and tolerance, it’s getting impossible to ignore the evidence presented to our senses, which screams that the Left is hard-hearted and hateful.

Question My Nightmare and I Will Become Your Nightmare…

Believe it or not, in 2019 America, a public entity has asked me not to show my face in my own home on my own property. As a consequence of my having violated progressive-think in the areas of race, gun rights, gender identification, and political preference (I voted for the guy who won), our attorneys […]

An American Epidemic: Toxic Imbecility

I’m a doctor. Fine, I’m a doctor of laws not of medicine. But I can scroll Web, M.D. as well as anyone, so believe you me—forget all the other scourges ravaging our free republic, even if (nay, especially if) they are afflicting you. Those scourges are mere distractions from the root cause of our impending […]

When Crying Hate Is Hate Speech

The acting career of Jussie Smollett has come to an abrupt halt—at least for a while—after what appears have been one of his best, most compelling, and convincing performances, using a script he wrote himself. He convinced the nation that he had been targeted due to his race and sexual preference, and had his casting […]

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 […]

A Fine and Dangerous Madness

To make sense of the recent spate of hysteria on the Left, it helps to understand how their minds work—or, as they like to say, connect the dots. The shortest route between an isolated instance (Jussie Smollett, John Wayne) and a knee-jerk cry of racism, sexism or some other pet -ism is from one neuron […]
