Pro-Trump, Anti-Trump and the Meta-Narrative

“As in Jephthah’s day, at stake in the upcoming presidential election is the life or death of a nation. Is Trump America’s Jephthah? Only if, by the providence of Almighty God, He moves the hearts and minds of the American people to reject America’s political elite who would choose global hegemony to an independent American […]

The Myth of Donald Trump as an ‘Anti-Intellectual’

dnldtrmp7One of the criticisms frequently hurled at Donald Trump is that he’s an “anti-intellectual.” Liberals count on incautious readers to conflate the term “intellectual” (which refers to a range of professions, which leftists mostly dominate, and not because they […]

Rod Dreher Has Officially Jumped the Shark

The American Conservative blogger Rod Dreher has never been entirely my cup of tea. His posts are frequently too overwrought, and they come off as, for lack of a better word, prissy. (I tried hard to come up with another word to describe them that wasn’t so loaded, but I couldn’t think of one that […]

Open Borders Libertarianism is a Suicide Pact, Part 1

I don’t know who the first person was to make the observation that is the title of this essay, but a quick Google search reveals that libertarian podcaster Christopher Cantwell seems to be the person most responsible for popularizing it or the alternate version “Libertarianism is not a suicide pact.” I find myself using it […]

A Miranda Instruction for Jurors on the Right of Jury Nullification.

There are two ways that the Judiciary have imposed their own tyranny on this nation. One is to usurp the unconstitutional power of “Judicial Review,” which is judges and justices taking it upon themselves to rule on the constitutionality of laws. The other is by denying the instruction to juries that they have the power […]

Variety's Spice of Life vs. Diversity's Murder of Culture

Cover of Leviathan by Sir Thomas Hobbies (1651)


“We must all obey the great law of change,” wrote Edmund Burke to Sir Hercules Langrishe in 1792, for “It is the most powerful law of nature, and the means perhaps of […]

“Gun Stamps!” Like Food Stamps, Only for Guns.

If there is anything truly deplorable about conservatives, it is our deplorable lack of imagination, creativity, new ideas, resourcefulness, mental flexibility, and use of language. We could use a really strong injection of humor, and our own late night talk show host on TV as well. But all in due time. First, we have to […]

Why All Illegal Aliens Are Criminals.

The Left never ceases to amaze me how they can twist anything to suit their purposes, to act without conscience, to say anything that they think will get them ahead, to come up with new language designed to advance a political agenda, and to change the dictionary meaning of any word or phrase in common […]

Conservatism; or, the Conservation of Civil Society Through Paradox and Irony


“Whenever a separation is made between liberty and justice, neither, in my opinion, is safe.” —Edmund Burke (1729-97), Irish philosopher, British-Whig parliamentarian often regarded as the father of modern conservatism. de-crevecoeur

Evil Twins - Why Multiculturalism Is As Wicked As Nazism

It’s a pretty bold statement and I’m sure it’ll cause a furrowed brow on first glace. I mean, how on earth can marcusemulticulturalism and Nazism share any similarities given they […]

A Completely New Model For Education.


Our current school system I believe wastes about 95% of the time students spend in school. Which means we have 95% unused potential. To use that we have to do something radically different. To do that we have to think radically differently. What if you forgot everything you knew about education, and were free […]

So What You’re Saying Is … Pat Buchanan Was Right all Along

A recent Claremont Review of Books article by the obviously pseudonymous Publius Decius Mus, “The Flight 93 Election,” has created quite a stir in the conservative universe. The article is a vigorous defense of Trump and Trumpism, and has been touted widely by Trump supporters. Rush Limbaugh read it aloud on his radio program. It […]

Conservative Anti-Trumpers Want It Both Ways

In my frequent battles with anti-Trumpers, I have noted two distinct lines of argument. One is that Donald Trump is really just a big government liberal whose policies are barely distinguishable from Hillary Clinton’s. The other is that Trump is so far outside the mainstream that Hillary is closer to traditional Republican thought. The remarkable […]

Entangling Alliances are not America First

The problem for me with reading National Review is that just about every article there triggers me and inspires me to write a rebuttal, which if I did would make my family and my employer very unhappy. But some articles are more triggering than others. This one by abortive NeverTrump Presidential candidate David French in […]

Isn't the President "Automatically" Commander in Chief? Well... No!

Isn’t the President “Automatically” Commander in Chief? Well… No! (Real Title)

We live in a world of assumptions. We live by those assumptions. We believe our assumptions. Those assumptions hold more value for us than truth. When faced with a new truth that contradicts our assumptions, the assumptions are given the weight of truth, and […]

The Tin Ear of Free Trade Advocates

As an unabashed supporter of Donald Trump and a conservative who has long been of the paleo-populist persuasion, I frequently find myself engaged in online debates with “regular” conservatives, and one of our most common and contentious topics is the virtues of free trade. One of my frequent foils on the matter recently directed me […]

If It’s Really About Conservative Purity Then Endorse Darrell Castle or Shut Up

Anti-Trump “conservatives” act as if they are the only group of people who have ever faced having a nominee of their party that they don’t like and don’t believe represents their party well, but I’ve got news for them. They aren’t. A lot of conservatives weren’t satisfied with Romney, McCain, Bush II, Dole, Bush I, […]

How Technology Feminizes Real Men

There is a common joke among women that men never ask for directions when lost. And along with that description is the implied assumption that men are idiots for not asking directions. It is so much faster just to go to someone who knows the area, find the right way, and get on with business. […]

Evan McMullin? NeverTrump Still Doesn’t Get It

We have long been promised that if the convention coup plot failed, as everyone who knows anything about the process knew it would, and Donald Trump emerged as the Republican nominee, that the NeverTrump bitter-enders planned to put forth an independent challenger to Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton to represent self-proclaimed “real conservatism” and/or “real […]

The Reform Party’s Branding Problem and Election 2016

Recently I wrote an article regarding Darcy Richardson’s candidacy for the Reform Party nomination. Well a funny thing happened at the Reform Party Convention last weekend. Instead of picking a nominee, they postpone the decision until 8 Aug. It is probably not wise to criticize the decision makers in the party who you wish to […]

Sanders Supporters Should Consider Darcy Richardson

I recently became aware that Darcy G. Richardson is seeking the Presidential nomination of the Reform Party. The Reform Party is holding its national convention starting today, 29 July through 31 July in Bohemia, New York. While I have never met Darcy personally, I consider him a virtual friend. We are both long time contributors […]

Do Not Trust Trump to Leverage the Second Amendment Against the Fifth and Fourteenth

Donald Trump Tweet on Newtown

I continually read Republican voters attack Sen. Ted Cruz for his failure to demonstrate total fealty to my former party’s presidential nominee Donald Trump. Most cannot bring themselves to describe one policy on which Hillary Clinton is not […]

A Court Party No More

In early 2015, well before Donald Trump was a blip on the radar screen, a friend asked me to contribute an article to a Constitution Party newsletter, so I happily obliged. The article was entitled “Needed: a Real Country Party,” but because of the nature of the venue it was never made available for wide […]
