Don’t Blame Avenatti

With the dust finally settling after the nasty, protracted fight to forestall Judge Brett Kavanaugh from becoming Justice Kavanaugh, Democrats now see they have made a potentially catastrophic mistake. They managed to anger, nay infuriate, Trump supporters, NeverTrump “conservatives,” independents, and even some Democrats unwilling to see a man destroyed by an unsubstantiated, uncorroborated accusation. […]

Civility, Civil War, and the Future of Our Civilization

Hillary Clinton, the most vengeful, spiteful loser in the history of American electoral politics, has abandoned the Left’s always deceptive, now evanescent call for “civility.” She insists there can be no civility between the parties until the Democrats are restored to power—and, by extension, the Republicans are vanquished. “You cannot be civil with a political […]

The Phantom Pain of the Left

As the president of the Senate called for a sufficient second to move to a vote on Judge Brett Kavanaugh, a . . . noise . . . erupted from the Senate gallery. It was as though the gates of Hell had been opened and a demonic voice shrieked, “Where is my representation?” As the […]

War on Men Is a Long-Term Plan for Democrat Victory

Encouraging women to hate and fear men as rapists is not a cultural development. It is a political weapon. Democrats are trying to replicate their electoral success among blacks, which they cheaply achieve by convincing them Republicans are racists. Smears such as “racism” and “rape culture” are effective substitutes for policy achievements or a platform, […]

Ford is a Liar and Her Story Isn’t Credible

One thing I learned watching the witch trial of Brett Kavanaugh on MSNBC, is that a prestigious university in New York has a Vice President for Social Justice. (She is an MSNBC commentator.) Her Orwellian title is but one of many signs that our country is already on the threshold of 1984; the Judiciary Committee […]

Cowardly Republicans Grant a False Premise

The logic of a premise will drag you to its conclusion. When Senate Republicans accepted the premise that Christine Blasey Ford’s accusation of sexual assault against Brett Kavanaugh was a legitimate personal complaint rather than a political maneuver orchestrated by the Democratic Party, they placed themselves in the grips of a logic leading them through […]

Who Leaked on Rod? (Hint: No Friend of Trump’s)

Recent articles in the New York Times and Washington Post cite anonymous sources who, claiming familiarity with the incidents and/or former FBI official Andrew McCabe’s contemporaneous memos, allege that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein wanted to wear a wire and advised others to record the president secretly; and to solicit support from cabinet members to […]

Are We on the Verge of Civil War?

Americans keep dividing into two hostile camps. It seems the country is back to 1860 on the eve of the Civil War, rather than in 2018, during the greatest age of affluence, leisure and freedom in the history of civilization. The ancient historian Thucydides called the civil discord that tore apart the fifth-century B.C. Greek […]

Why Obama Is Great for Republicans

Barack Obama is the best president Republicans have ever had. In his eight years in office, the 44th president helped deliver to the GOP (in no particular order) the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House, nine governorships and roughly 900 seats in state legislatures. The Republican National Committee should give the man a medal. And now […]

Are Dems Right to Panic Over the Court? Five Originalists Weigh In

My intuition is that the Democrats are not panicking enough about the pending confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court. They’ve been so busy ginning up their base with claims that Kavanaugh will spell the end of abortion and gay marriage that they haven’t focused on the more likely, and larger, impacts […]
