Charlottesville and Masked Antifa, Omarosi, Brennan…


During a busy fortnight when it is impossible to comment daily on the inanity and insanity of the 24-hour Fake News cycle in Year 2 of the Age of Trump, there is a certain equanimity that comes with realizing that so many of the daily crises are not crises at all, and that so much […]

The Lessons of Ghazni


On October 16, 2001, Army Special Forces entered Afghanistan by helicopter, the first U.S. troops on the ground there since the 9/11 attacks. Since then, thousands of Americans have fought there, and over two thousand have died. By almost every measure we have little to show for seventeen years of war. We and some of […]

To Corpus Christi and Back


Sunday, August 12, 2018 An uneventful flight from LAX to DFW until the very end. When I got off the plane, there was supposed to be a cart to help with my fat old self, my bum left foot, and my luggage. However, there was no cart and no helper. Plus, for some reason having […]

Retirees Shouldn’t Get Security Clearances


Between the Mexican-American War and the start of the Civil War, men like Ulysses S. Grant and William Tecumseh Sherman — two of the greatest military leaders in American history — found themselves living rather dull civilian lives.

Should Americans Give Mainstream Media the Silent Treatment?


Once upon a time, the American people trusted the mainstream media, and vice-versa. Back when Walter Cronkite was the “nation’s newsman,” most Americans felt confident that networks and newspapers reported “the facts” — at least most of the time. Even 20 years ago, a majority of Americans had trust and confidence in the mass media “to report […]

Washington Rick Gates is to political consultant Paul Manafort what Omarosa Manigault Newman is to President Donald Trump. Gates is the 46-year-old former right-hand man to Manafort, who, in exchange for a lesser sentence, testified against his former boss during the first jury trial resulting from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian interference in […]

John Brennan, a Security Risk from the Start


The real story about John Brennan’s security clearance is not that he lost it under a Republican president but that he once got one. One of the peculiar footnotes of Brennan’s history is that he obtained a position in Bill Casey’s CIA after having supported the Soviet-backed American Communist Party at the height of the […]

Trump Hits Communist China and Liberal Universities


President Trump this week delivered a blow against the corrupt communist Chinese and our corrupt liberal universities. The double-whammy was a delicious slap that few noticed, including the president’s supporters. Unbeknownst to the vast majority of Americans, including conservatives, the Chinese government has been busily establishing so-called Confucius Institutes on campuses all across the country. […]

Monsters Of The Cloth


The grand jury report in that Pennsylvania child rape case involving several hundred Catholic priests which surfaced last week is, as Michael Brendan Dougherty termed it at NRO Wednesday, a Rotherham for the Church. But unlike Rotherham, a case in which a ring of Muslim pedophiles and rapists latched on to local ethnic English girls […]

Never That Great, Huh?


“We’re not going to make America great again,” New York Governor Andrew Cuomo informed this week. “It was never that great.” “America Was Never That Great” does not pop as a campaign slogan, at least in America, the way “Make America Great Again” did. It falters more as history. The air conditioner saving Cuomo from […]
