Do Not Let Conservative Inc. Slither Away From the Covington Controversy

The climb down is not as fast as the initial burst of faux outrage. As soon as the video that sparked the Covington controversy surfaced, the usual suspects who see bigotry lurking in the soul of every Trump supporter were quick to denounce and foment a mob against the Catholic students while consoling Mr. Nathan Phillips, the alleged victim of another act of white supremacy. Thanks to Twitter personalities like Mike Cernovich, the initial media reports were proven to be more fake news and retractions, social media deletions and apologies began.

Everything I Hate Is White Supremacy

For quite sometime there has been a meme circulating social media stating “Everyone I Hate Is Hitler” . Quite amusing and quite accurate. What used to be a devastating attack on a political opponent, or a surefire way to shut down any debate, it is now a punchline. Since the potency of invoking Hitler’s name has waned, a new lexicon had to be deployed - thus the term “white supremacy” became ubiquitous. Any action, policy or political movement the Left doesn’t like is now labeled “white supremacy”. The latest example of “white supremacy” is inquiring about citizenship status in the upcoming 2020 census.

Another Caravan On Its Way To America

I am very skeptical of the strategy of relying on Mexico to stem the flow of migrants into the United States. It is also extremely frustrating. The lone superpower in the world cannot protect its borders and has to rely on a third world country known for its corruption and dysfunction. We spend trillions of dollars on the military but it cannot be used to secure our border.

Bannon: The GOP Was Not Prepared To Govern

Besides informing us that the GOP never had a plan to replace Obamacare, Steve Bannon joins the chorus advising the president to declare a national emergency and use the military to build the wall.

By waiting two years to push for the wall, Trump undermined his current argument that there is a crisis at the border. One does not wait two years to address a crisis or an emergency.

Permanently Cancel The State Of The Union Address

Since president Obama, SOTU addresses have deteriorated from forgettable events to national embarrassments. The political division that plagues our country has overtaken basic courtesy and decorum. Heckling, justices falling asleep, the president rebuking other branches of government, stone faces, the political opposition sitting on its hands while members of the president’s party leap to standing ovations at the slightest pause in the speech. It is a spectacle not worthy of a great nation.

Theresa May's Stunning Defeat

As an avid follower of British politics, I predicted that the United Kingdom would vote to leave the European Union nearly two years before the referendum was held. What I did not foresee was the extent the ruling class would work to sabotage the referendum result. But I should be forgiven for my misjudgment. Three years ago I still believed that democracy was a cherished value in the West. I still believed that casting a vote mattered.
