Rule Britainna!

I am surprised, and pleased, by the results of the British referendum to leave the EU. I think it’s the right decision, and can’t state my reasons any better than Daniel Hammond did in his recent speech, so I won’t try.

The Kids Are Alright

It can be tough to be optimistic about the future these days, what with so many Millennials following the Pied Piper of socialism, and our upcoming election coming down to a choice between Hillary Clinton and one of her donors. But take heart in the knowledge that even among Millennials, there is a right-leaning silent […]

Sorry, Not Sorry

Andrew Klavan is awesome. If I ever became president, this would pretty much sum up my foreign policy.
