Commentary: Send Them Back

May 26, 20235 min read
Only a country that has lost the will to survive would tolerate the invasion underway all across America. There is no longer a southern border to speak of. From Arizona to Maine, towns are under siege by a relentless, surging mass of humanity. The lowly citizen has been trampled underfoot to make lebensraum for the hallowed “asylum seeker,” whose conquering steps are greeted with suppliant knee. 

Commentary: The Corruption of Climate Science

May 25, 202314 min read
“We need to criticize the people who got us here,” says Alex Epstein, founder of the Center for Industrial Progress and author of Fossil Future. “We can’t keep treating these designated experts as real experts. They are not real experts, they are destroyers. They are anti-energy, non-experts. And that needs to be made clear.”

Commentary: Mask Mandates Unmasked

May 25, 20236 min read
In the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Anthony Fauci said, “There’s no reason for you to be walking around with a mask.” But the longtime director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) soon changed his stance. Although not 100 percent effective, Fauci said, wearing masks is “a symbol for people to see that that’s the kind of thing you should be doing.”

Commentary: America’s Radical Criminal Justice Reform Disaster

May 24, 20235 min read
Over the past decade or so, America has undertaken a radical experiment with criminal justice reform. The consequences have been devastating. The number of people arrested in America each year has fallen sharply over the past two decades. Public prosecutors now prosecute significantly fewer cases. Those that are convicted can generally expect shorter sentences. The combined effect of all this is that America’s prison population is now 25 percent lower than it was in 2011.

Commentary: Everyone Is Protecting Ray Epps

May 24, 20236 min read
Over the past month, speculation has swirled around why Fox News honchos ousted the nation’s most popular cable news host just hours before he was set to begin his nightly monologue. Tucker Carlson reportedly was stunned by the news, which was announced in a terse statement released by the network on April 24: “FOX News Media and Tucker Carlson have agreed to part ways. We thank him for his service to the network as a host and prior to that as a contributor.”

Commentary: The Devastating Absurdities of Our Age

May 23, 202313 min read
A sign of a civilization in headlong decline is its embrace of absurdities. Unfortunately for the United States, we are witnessing an epidemic of nihilist nonsense.

Commentary: Any Debt ‘Default’ Will Be Biden’s Choice

May 23, 20235 min read
There’s enough revenue to pay interest on the debt even if the $31.4 trillion debt ceiling is reached. Meaning, if the U.S. defaults on the debt on June 1, it will be because President Joe Biden chose not to make principal and interest payments on U.S. Treasuries out of existing revenue, for which there is more than ample revenues to service and refinance up to the current debt ceiling limit, $31.4 trillion.

Commentary: Abandon the Swamp and Let it Rot

May 22, 202310 min read
Suppose a document drops in the wilderness and no one is around to hear it. Does it make a sound? I submit that John Durham just tested this Bishop Berkeleyesque query. The special counsel spent four years beavering away in the forests of the deep state and what did he produce? Three hundred pages telling us what, for the most part, we already knew and with the result that exactly nothing, apart from a little hand wringing, will happen. 

Commentary: Facebook’s TikTok Problem

May 22, 20234 min read
TikTok hasn’t exactly got Facebook dancing in the streets. The Chinese-owned social media app is rapidly eating away at Facebook’s user base, especially among the under-30s crowd, which seems to think that Facebook is for the over-the-hill crowd.

Commentary: Trump Is Soaring in the Polls

May 21, 20234 min read
Former President Donald Trump is surging in the polls ahead of the 2024 election.

Commentary: In Mao’s China, They Even Monitored Talking in Your Sleep

May 21, 20239 min read
When the recently deceased Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot sang, “I heard you talking in your sleep… from your lips there came that secret I was not supposed to know,” he was talking about marital infidelity. Not long after Chairman Mao came to power in China, idealistic college students learned that political fidelity to Mao and the Communist Party was the most important virtue they needed to demonstrate. Party or Youth League members were present at every meal and in every dorm room. Historian Frank Dikötter described in his book The Tragedy of Liberation, “These Communists took notes on the day and night behaviour of every student. Even the words of a student talking in his sleep were recorded and considered for political significance.”

Commentary: Look Ahead, Not Backwards, to Hold the Justice Department Accountable

May 20, 20238 min read
Release of Special Counsel John Durham’s report on law enforcement and intelligence misconduct related to the 2016 presidential election has been met with outrage, recriminations, and a justified amount of vindication for those, including President Donald Trump, who helped expose the brazen operation from the start. 

Commentary: Biden Administration’s New Mortgage Policy Is Unjust and Dangerous

May 20, 20234 min read
One of the essential lessons most of us are taught early in life is the importance of developing a sense of financial responsibility. Work hard to earn a good paycheck. Don’t spend more than you can afford. Save for the future.

Commentary: Joe Biden, the Habitual Racialist Demagogue

May 19, 20236 min read
The most recent liberal ABC News/Washington Post poll showed Joe Biden’s approval rating at 36 percent—the lowest in history for a president at this point in his first term. Biden’s low popularity is no mystery. 

Commentary: Segregation Is Coming to a Medical School near You

May 19, 20234 min read
The prestigious New England Journal of Medicine in April published an article openly championing segregation as a way for medical students to learn more effectively. Unsurprisingly, the article is steeped in incredible amounts of racism. Seven academics from the University of California at Berkeley and UC San Francisco begin with the premise that traditional medical education is “systemically racist.” They propose to split up medical students into what they call “racial affinity group caucuses,” where would-be doctors can discuss what they have been learning in their antiracism classes with other people who share their skin color. The euphemism may be “racial affinity group caucusing,” but the authors, in fact, are really advocating segregation.
