The Hillary-Alinsky-Lucifer Connection

 

In his speech at the Republican convention last week, Ben Carson made a statement that raised some eyebrows. “Now, one of the things that I have learned about Hillary Clinton is that one of her heroes, her mentors, was Saul Alinsky,” said Carson. “And her senior thesis was about Saul Alinsky. This was someone she […]

Remembering a Grimly Prophetic July 4

 

On July 4, 1826, Owen stood atop his new ideological colony in New Harmony, Indiana, the heart of the American heartland, and delivered his “Declaration of Mental Independence.” It was, in effect, an anti-Declaration of Independence, the opposite of an affirmation of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, of the laws of nature and nature’s God.

Orlando and the Left’s Preferred Enemy

 

I was attending a graduation party Sunday afternoon when a former student asked for my thoughts on the shooting in Orlando. We both expressed our obvious horror at the immediate inhumanity: the dead, the maimed, the agony of the families, the callousness, the monstrousness. My student expressed relief that the shooter had no association with […]

Ho Chi Minh’s Dupe

 

Three summers ago here at The American Spectator I published a piece titled, “Ho Chi Minh, Obama’s Freedom Fighter.” It got a lot of play, reprinted by (among others) Real Clear Politics. The focus was yet another stunning statement uttered on behalf of a communist by our President of Fundamental Transformation. This one came during […]

Seven, Eight… Nine Brothers in World War II

 

Back during Memorial Day 2014, I wrote a piece on five brothers who served in World War II. I was blown-away impressed by the Bailey boys, from my neck of the woods in Western Pennsylvania, and still am. Imagine my surprise when a reader responded with a package of clippings informing me of his family, […]

Trump Needs a Contract With Conservatives

 

He must know conservatives expect nothing less. Donald Trump’s impressive list of potential Supreme Court nominees was a very smart move at a pivotal time. It came amid news of the Little Sisters’ ongoing battle not to be compelled by Caesar to fund abortion drugs, and amid Barack Obama’s bathroom edict thrust upon every school […]

Bernie’s Bolshie Adventures

 

That brings me to the honeymoon and sojourn of the no. 2 for the Democratic Party nomination to the presidency, a lifetime socialist named Bernie Sanders. The man is on fire. He continues a stunning run through the Democratic primary. He has won a mere handful fewer states than Hillary Clinton. By the time he’s finished, Bernie will have secured the votes of over 10 million Democrats.

The Conservative Catastrophe Ahead

 

For the conservative movement, it is Armageddon, as we now know who the next president will be.  Americans in 2016 resolved their next president not on November 8, the official date-to-come of the election, but on May 3 in the state of Indiana. It is Hillary Rodham Clinton. With Donald Trump winning Indiana, and Ted […]

The Conservative Catastrophe Ahead

 

Americans in 2016 resolved their next president not on November 8, the official date-to-come of the election, but on May 3 in the state of Indiana. It is Hillary Rodham Clinton. With Donald Trump winning Indiana, and Ted Cruz thereby suspending his campaign, the seal has been broken. For conservatives, Armageddon is fully upon us: […]

Communist Party Feels The Bern

 

U.S. communists couldn’t be happier about the Democratic Party’s direction than Bernie himself. As it has for months now, People’s World again this past week carried a headline hailing Bernie Sanders “revolution.” As the successor to the Soviet-funded and directed Daily Worker, and as ongoing house organ of Communist Party USA,People’s World is pleased with […]
