We Can't Stop What We Refuse To See

There have been many awful responses by left-wing imbeciles to the recent string of terrorist attacks in England, mostly about how the real enemy is “Islamophobia” and how we can totally fight terrorism with the power of hugs and rainbows, but this asinine tweet by Bette Midler in response to the London Bridge attack has […]

Money is not the only answer, but it makes a difference - Barack Obama

Ace at ace.mu.nu has written a few posts explaining what secondary boycotts are and why he has changed from advising against them to advocating for them.

I’m not particularly a fan of boycotts as a sort-of political movement, but I’ve never understood why so many folks give their hard-earned money to people who will […]

The Center Cannot Hold

This, https://townhall.com/columnists/kurtschlichter/2017/05/18/this-is-a-coup-against-our-right-to-govern-ourselves-n2328059

is not hyperbole (I’ll quote from his article below my take). This really is a cold civil war. It’s not left against right or progressives against conservatives; it’s our government bureaucracy vs. the citizenry.

Some of you recently wrote about evil characters in movies and television that scared you the most and […]

Classy, right? He quotes the […]

Ben Sasse on Economic Disruption

Nebraska Republican Senator Ben Sasse has a great piece in the Wall Street Journal — an excerpt of a speech he gave at the Steamboat Springs Institute called The Challenge of our Disruptive Era:

I don’t mean to be exceedingly pessimistic. There are plenty of wonderful opportunities for American families and innovators in this […]

From The Trailer Park - Star Wars: The Last Jedi (Teaser)

The next Star Wars installment, written and directed by Rian Johnson (Looper). Plot details are light thus far, except that the film will involve a new conflict between the Republic and the New Order while Rey undergoes her training under Luke Skywalker, and there will be a brand new villain played by Benicio Del […]

R.I.P. Happy Warrior

Five years ago today we lost the great Andrew Breitbart, one of conservatism’s bravest and strongest warriors. His loss is felt by the conservative movement every day, but we continue to be spurned on by his example to be fearless and always “walk towards the fire.” While he was no fan of Donald Trump […]
