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 […]
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 […]
One way or another, Neo [an anagram meaning “the one”], this war is going to end. Tonight, the future of both worlds will be in your hands… or in his. – The Oracle from “The Matrix.”

I have read a few articles recently that attempt to psychologically analyze Donald Trump and explain what motivated his decision to run for President after several past flirtations. I’m not going to link to them because they’re hit pieces, but that doesn’t mean they don’t contain some insight. Just […]
This video by Steve Deace, who I believe to be one of the sincere but misguided leaders of the NeverTrump effort, is a perfect illustration of the insular nature of much of official conservatism. Deace concedes that the Establishment does not like Trump, but sees the Establishment’s unwillingness to join the NeverTrump crusade as an […]
In planning this article, the murder of police officers in Dallas occurred. I thought of holding off to honor the victims first, but then the Obama Administration immediately began the call for more illegal gun laws, and I realized it was more important than ever to speak out. This one court case highlights everything that […]
As a good traditional conservative, I like Westerns. If you watch a lot of Westerns you will eventually discern that many of them have a very similar theme. This theme is that the breed of men it took to tame the Wild West is different from the breed of men it took to civilize the […]
During the Republican primary, I generally refrained from using the electability argument. Electability is important, but the arguments often seemed to me counterproductive and almost always conveniently supported the candidate of choice of the person making it. John Kasich is the “only one” who can beat Hillary because he is a moderate and will appeal […]
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 […]
