How to Rebuild a First World Economy

 

“We’ve indulged in this fiction that we can build a vibrant economy by deregulating the financial sector, and cutting taxes, and putting off investments in things like infrastructure and education and our kids. But we can’t anymore. And now we have to ask the question about what really went wrong.” Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), from Rana Foroohar’s “Makers […]

Kaepernick’s Culture Warrior ‘Curse’

 

A week shy of the midway point of the football season, the two winless NFL teams are no surprise. They are the Cleveland Browns and Colin Kaepernick’s former team, the once-storied San Francisco 49ers. As the Browns have never even made it to the big game, this is frankly to be expected. But what of […]

Trump: Our Generation’s Reagan?

 

Roughly ten months in, how is it not presumptuous for anyone—especially a conservative—to proclaim in print that Donald Trump is “no Reagan”? Perhaps Washington Times columnist Robert W. Merry should wait another three years before making any sweeping pronouncements? What’s Mr. Merry’s basis for this flawed, and premature, conclusion? The failure of the entrenched Republican […]

When Celebrity Insults Patriotism

 

In our modern era of internet connectivity and 24-hour news cycles, for better or worse, celebrity is an instant megaphone for gaining national attention. Especially for the controversial, or in former quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers Colin Kaepernick’s case, the foolishly aggrieved. Given his upbringing in a loving household by adoptive parents, a college […]

Blaming Others for Dastardly Deeds

 

Capitol Hill displays 100 luminaries in Statuary Hall: two donated from every state in the nation. Per The Washington Times, more than 25 of these silent sentinels—Confederate politicians and/or soldiers; others merely slaveholders or segregationists—from a bygone era have come under public assault by polarizing progressives.

McCain Kills Obamacare Repeal, Gridlocks Senate

 

Sen. John McCain typifies the dysfunctional U.S. Senate.

To a hero’s welcome of universal cheers, McCain delivered a feisty […]

Making Justice Clarence Thomas Invisible

 

“The persistent efforts to undermine Justice Thomas and his compelling body of jurisprudence, and to ignore the spectacular Horatio Alger [read: rags to riches] story of his life, are part of a deliberate strategy to silence a conservative voice from someone who might serve as a transformative role model in the African-American community in particular, […]

Racist Oreo Cupcakes

 

Apparently political correctness is now spoiling our desserts. Anjelica Hayes, 26, owner of Portland’s Fat Cupcake bakery, has been shamed into renaming one of her signature treats. Based upon her innocent understanding that the Oreo cookie is Mr. Obama’s favorite, she had called her black and white confection “The President”? After a Yelp reviewer denounced […]
