Conflicts: A Look at Fundamentals

Our successful societies are under attack. In itself that finding provokes a yawn and not a commentary. However, the challenge has increasingly perturbing features. An embedded peril is that our civilization finds it difficult to admit the threat and to mobilize its means to fend it off. A cause of this paralysis is that the […]

A Reply to George Will’s Anti-Trump Hysteria

Yawn. Another day, another hysterical article from a self-appointed Establishment “conservative” gatekeeper bemoaning the candidacy of Donald Trump and the imminent demise of the GOP and conservatism as we know it if Trump is not stopped. These have become so predictable that I didn’t even bother to read the thing before I started commenting on […]

George Handlery - Migration’s Miseries

Duly NotedSome troubles stay perennially newsworthy. Hardly is the “last one” about them penned, they revive through unforeseeable issues and, by sanity’s standards, surprising scandals.

Run Jimmy Duncan Run!

I consider myself an across-the-board conservative but of the paleo sort, therefore I tend to disagree with mainstream conservatives on a few issues, most notably foreign policy. I say this to indicate that I am not a single issue voter. I have several issues that I prioritize in importance when evaluating a candidate. A discussion […]

Attention Populist Conservatives: Beware Ted Cruz

Attention populist conservatives who really want to stick it to the Establishment: perhaps, just perhaps, the best way to do that is not by supporting a candidate who GRADUATED FROM HARVARD LAW SCHOOL!

It is possible that Ted Cruz’s anti-Establishment conservative rhetoric is entirely sincere.

It is possible that Ted Cruz is not sincere and […]

Duly Noted - Run For Peace?

Duly Noted

Does this sound like an admonition? Such as in “run for good health”. Since the writer has experienced the University of Oregon’s legendary Bill Bowermann, and since then has stuck to daily running and weight lifting interrupted by reading Russian, such a call would be […]

The Wrong Reason to Not Support Ted Cruz

On Monday, Ted Cruz announced his presidential candidacy in a speech at Liberty University. He is the first major candidate to officially announce. There is a lot to like about Ted Cruz. On most issues he is as conservative as or more than his Senate GOP colleagues. I also like his combative attitude, and his […]

Conservative Non-Interventionism: An Introduction

Like almost all modern conservatives, I started my political life as an interventionist, but I made the transition to conservative non-interventionism fairly early on. How I arrived where I am today is a subject for another essay, but to establish my bona fides as something other than a Johnny-come-lately to non-interventionism, I often tell people […]

Rand Paul Gets Cuba Right

President Obama’s decision to move toward normalized relations with Cuba has caused an array of responses, most of them pretty predictable. As a conservative non-interventionist, I support Obama’s decision. I support normal relations with Cuba and have since I moved to the position of non-interventionism many years ago. Our embargo of Cuba, ostensibly to promote […]
