Plaintive Wails: A Month Since Trump’s Win, Still No Sign of Maturity

 

Conservatives, moderates, and the less-political understand this, but what happened in November was only an election. Even if it was a more-consequential-than-normal event in American politics, Donald Trump beating Hillary Clinton was only an election. Barack Obama, the most politically and culturally radical figure to grace the top of the American ballot, won twice. His […]

California Legislature’s Gaseous Impulses

 

Sacramento The California Legislature last week received a load of bad publicity because of a new law that attempts to reduce the methane output of dairy cows dramatically — putting California on the cutting edge of worldwide efforts to regulate cow flatulence. It sounds like one of those overstated internet memes, but sadly, it’s a […]

Israel Is the Last Hope for Christians in the Middle East

 

“If Christianity [in the Middle East] survives, it will not be because of any interest taken by Christians in our part of the world, but rather because the State of Israel, the people of Israel, and conscientious Jews everywhere are dedicated to saving it,” said Dr. Paul Merkley, Professor of History at Carleton University, last […]

The Armenian Lobby’s Tenuous Relations With President-Elect Trump

 

For years, the Armenian-American lobby has hyped its own importance by insisting that U.S. policy in Eurasia follow its narrow ethnic agenda. Similarly, it demands that the U.S. put Armenian ethnic interests as a pillar in approaching the Middle East.

Blaming Trump for All Their Woes

 

Growing up, I loved the TV show The Price Is Right. A sick day from school wasn’t the same without it. It wasn’t must see TV, but rather sick day TV. At the end of the show, as Bob Barker assembled his beauties, he would always preach the message: “Don’t forget to spay and neuter your […]

One-Party State, Meet Party of One

 

Donald J. Trump did America a huge favor by winning the White House in November.

Remembering Pearl Harbor

 

It’s a good excuse to put out the flag (not that we need an excuse), which I did this morning. This famous and fateful date still lives in infamy, though in the minds of fewer and fewer Americans as the years and decades go by. Even fewer have any direct memory of the day, either […]

We’re All in the Same Boat — Still

 

Seventy-five years ago today, Winston Churchill was pondering survival. Hitler gripped Europe from France to deep inside Russia. Nazi U-boats were strangling British shipping; Rommel’s Afrika Korps was advancing on Suez. Britain’s only ally, the Red Army, was fighting before Moscow. America remained supportive… and aloof. Eighteen months earlier he had become prime minister, because […]

Tuned Out Until Spring

 

Nice piece by John Calvin in this a.m.’s TAS cataloguing many of the ways in which sports entities in America have become left-wing pressure groups. Every stout-hearted Americano should read this one before tuning in the NFL, the NBA, or any college sport. I’ve tuned out every sport except baseball. The infection doesn’t seem to have […]

Ambassador Huckabee Opens the New American Embassy in Jerusalem

 

“I had a dream.” That’s right, Lionel Ritchie had a dream, too, and so did I. Mine probably wasn’t as sexy and glamorous as Mr. Ritchie’s or Mr. King’s, because, of all people, it involved Mike Huckabee. Yes, I might be the only man, or woman, in the world who has had a dream about […]
