The Constitution Party’s National Convention kicks off tomorrow in Salt Lake City, Utah. There the CP will chose its 2016 nominee for President. More interestingly to many observers of third part dynamics, however, is how the CP will handle the Trump phenomenon.
First some background on this year’s Convention for those who do not follow […]
President Obama has nominated a very far left-wing judge to replace the late conservative Justice Antonin Scalia on the U.S. Supreme Court. Merrick Garland, who is the chief judge of the United States […]
Now that the Republican primary is essentially down to Donald Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz, it’s time for conservatives to give some serious thought to the choice they now face. I believe it is fair to say that both Trump and Cruz are anti-Establishment candidates, and both have tapped into the anger of voters who […]
Britain has “free” health care, which means it is run by the government and funded by taxpayers. Those on the left in the U.S. want to move to this model, which is often referred to as universal […]
David French, writing at National Review, (There’s a shocker!) accuses Donald Trump of being a Democrat because he challenges the “conservative” narrative on the Iraq War. This is a common theme that has filled social media and the conservative webosphere since last Saturday’s Republican debate. The problem for French and the rest of the interventionist […]
In the past few years I have noticed an increase in the use of the term constitutional conservative, usually to describe a candidate or politician who is associated with the Tea Party or is otherwise generally considered “more” conservative by degree. I have seen this term used a lot lately to describe Sen. Ted Cruz, […]
Ever since Donald Trump’s rise to 2016-contender prominence, the rap on him, and perhaps part of his broad appeal, has been that he’s not a conservative. And he’s not — he’s a nationalistic populist. Yet […]
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 […]
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 […]
One of the raps against Donald Trump frequently trotted out by some of his conservative critics, often supporters of one of the more traditional conservative candidates, is that he is not really a conservative. Some even call him a liberal. Yet despite this charge, Trump continues to gain the support of prominent conservatives whose conservative […]
One important fact emerged from the second Democratic presidential debate. CBS, which sponsored it, headlined it as Democratic debate shows differences on foreign policy, Wall Street. This hypes the differences, while this snoozefest […]
Two distinct groups have now formed among the eight top Republican Party candidates. The first group is the patriots made up of Donald Trump, Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, and Rand Paul. The second group is the statists made up of Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, Carley Fiorina, and John Kasich. On almost every issue in Tuesday […]
“Everybody’s got a beef.” (2)
This includes author Michael Walsh at his incisive best in his latest work, The Devil’s Pleasure Palace: The […]
With few exceptions, there’s little of what we know of as egalitarianism in the ancient world. Plato, we know, believed in the equality of the sexes; and since some souls were more valuable than others, those souls were more capable of higher development. Aristotle was versed […]
The wise thinkers of history have always understood that political systems are the products of our conception of truth and justice. Since 1776, we in America have believed that a just political system must be based upon a concept of rights, and government must be enshrined as a protector of those rights. This, as the […]
No, you haven’t lost your mind.
Yes, America has.
If someone just 20 years ago had said, for starters, that we’d someday elect an anti-American president who would intentionally flood […]
To the limited extent they actually do, have you ever wondered how so-called “progressives” think? The progressive mind – let’s call it, “Progressy” – collectively hovers, like the Hindenburg, in that fantastical realm, that manmade utopia […]
Back in 2009, when I started my radio talk show, I knew that President Obama would be one of the worst presidents this nation has ever had. I also took to heart what Rush Limbaugh said back then about […]
Michael Savage’s new book takes on America’s present state of affairs and leaves no stone unturned.
Over time I’ve found that people either like Michael Savage or they don’t. Thus, there […]
