Time Magazine: Maybe we should have another Civil War after all?

Progressive historian Jon Meacham takes to the cover of Time Magazine to helpfully explain how President Abraham Lincoln saved democracy by destroying it in the bloodiest conflict in United States history, and how these lessons apply to today’s political battles against the dreaded Ultra MAGA.  The narrative is clear, but the truth couldn’t be more… Continue reading Time Magazine: Maybe we should have another Civil War after all?

No, crime is not a “construct” created to keep the black man down

Progressives are confused about crime.  Their social justice philosophy views victims based on the facts of their birth, not the deeds that they’ve done.  The saga of the Park Slope Panthers in Brooklyn, NY reveals that they’d rather have a homeless madman roaming the streets, terrorizing women and killing dogs, than protect the populace. Conservatives… Continue reading No, crime is not a “construct” created to keep the black man down

Biden fancies himself John Quincy Adams, thinks he can save America

The President delivered a primetime speech about the “continued battle for the soul of the nation,” but who is he to declare close to half the country his enemies?  What moral quality and compass does this man have to define democracy itself, proclaim himself everyone else’s better, and demand we conform to his view of… Continue reading Biden fancies himself John Quincy Adams, thinks he can save America

From the Compromise of 1790 onward, the American system is built around establishing broad consensus for major issues, passing bipartisan legislation where both parties get something they want.  The result is increased ownership of government programs and less acrimony.  Isn’t that what everyone claims to want for America? Earlier this month, a bipartisan group of… Continue reading The bipartisan infrastructure push: This is the way things are supposed to work

Prince Harry and the First Amendment: It’s bonkers that an educated man his age knows nothing about it

Ironically, freedom of speech is a fundamental right designed to protect us from the tyranny of Prince Harry’s own ancestors.  A tyranny that apparently still exists today.  Consider the example of journalist James Callender from the Founder’s era, and Facebook blocking the dissenting views of a respected scientist and former Obama official from our own.… Continue reading Prince Harry and the First Amendment: It’s bonkers that an educated man his age knows nothing about it
