Let’s Hope Trump Didn’t Record Anyone


Democrats have a pernicious pattern for handling effective Republican presidents. First, they claim that the president is unfit for office either because he’s too stupid or insane (they did this with Dwight Eisenhower, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, and George W. Bush). Then, they argue that the Republican in the White House is evil and corrupt […]

Space Warfare Is Here


The White House has announced its intention to create a space force. Until now, a series of treaties have prevented the weaponization of space. Yet, even with things like the Outer Space Treaty of 1967 and other fantastical agreements, space has been militarized almost from the start. The only reason no space war occurred during […]

The GOP Is All Pastel (and Little Boldness)


The real unemployment rate (the U6 figure) has reached a 17-year low in record time. This is almost exclusively in response to the massive amount of regulations that the Trump Administration slashed beginning from his very first day in office. The tax cuts also helped to goose the economy. For the first time in more than a […]

The Congressional GOP Is Suicidal


The Republican Party establishment is giving President Donald Trump the shaft. Heading into this summer, I warned that Congressional Republicans were incapable of implementing a truly transformative legislative agenda that would support the America First principles that Donald Trump campaigned on during the 2016 campaign. It seems that I am, unfortunately, right. By ignoring the Trump […]

The Battle of the Blowhards: Trump vs. Biden


President Donald J. Trump enjoyed an unlikely (and, therefore, historic) victory over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election by appealing to working-class voters in the Midwest and the South. While the Democrats played identity politics, Trump and his team specifically targeted the blue-collar, middle-class voters with a simple promise that he would revitalize their […]

Space Weapons Trump Peace With Russia


President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin have now met in a much-ballyhooed summit in Helsinki. Together, the United States and Russian Federation represent two of the most militarily powerful countries in the world. Unlike so many presstitutes in the West, I believe that President Trump should get high marks for the meeting. As […]

Trump NATO

NATO Must Pay


Repeat after me: NATO is the most important defensive alliance in history. Keep repeating it, lest you gain the undying enmity of the Davoise. In fact, repeat the mantra at all times, like some Gregorian Monk who endlessly chants incantations to the Lord. NATO is the most important defensive alliance in history. Or, is it? […]

The Deep State Finds Its Next Target


W riting in his 1979 epic, Coup d’Etat: A Practical Handbook, Edward N. Luttwak claimed, “A coup consists of the infiltration of a small but critical segment of the state apparatus, which is then used to displace the government from its control of the remainder.” This is precisely what is occurring today with the purported Deep State […]

Stop Calling It the ‘Revolutionary War’


In his masterpiece, The Revolt of the Masses, José Ortega y Gasset postulates that American and European cultures are inextricably linked. This is especially the case in relation to Anglo-Celtic culture. As a matter of fact, the American culture, its liberal disposition and focus on maritime trade and military power, as well as many of its […]

Hold Your Nose and Vote for the GOP in 2018


George Will is correct: The Republican Party is unworthy of your vote. Unfortunately, though, the alternatives are worse than what America is presently made to endure. And, naturally, George Will’s insight about how the Republican Party shouldn’t get your vote in 2018 is overshadowed by Will’s bizarre support for the Democratic Party in 2018. Talk […]
