The cultural Marxist ideology used by liberals in the United States today originates from Europe. Understanding what politicians represent will go some way to avoiding further American decline, the slide […]
Much is being made of the fact that George Will recently announced that he has left the Republican Party because of the nomination of Donald Trump. My initial reaction, and the reaction of many others judging by the responses I have seen, is “Good riddance.” I have made my feeling about Mr. Will known in […]
Since the NeverTrump forces have so far failed to attract a credible movement conservative approved independent challenger to run against Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in the general election, their focus seems to have shifted toward an effort to nominate someone other than Trump at the Republican National Convention in July. This has been the […]
Duly Noted by George Handlery
Only a few beliefs receive more approval than the concept of the title. At the same time, few notions are more abused than this one.
All men might be equal at the moment of conception. Significant differences emerge once that point is passed. Mankind’s success, compared to that of all […]
You’re David French.
Since the possibility of your Presidential candidacy was first floated, you have been getting hammered relentlessly on Twitter.
Some of that criticism has been directed at your, shall we say, not particularly masculine demeanor and your tendency to enforce PC rightthink.
You have maintained an odd and unwise Twitter silence since your […]
I predicted that Donald Trump was going to win the GOP nomination before the Iowa caucus. I even predicted that he might run the table. While he didn’t run the table as I overly enthusiastically suggested at one point, he came closer to running the table than he did to imploding as all the smarts […]
Invoking reason in support of an argument is like banging on the table.[i]
Those who invoke ‘reason’ are essentially asserting that ‘if you ‘reason’ in the right way, then you’ll agree with them; if you don’t agree with them, that ‘proves’ that you haven’t ‘reasoned’ in the right way.’
The Enlightenment […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
