The President's Perfect Pocahontas Ploy

Anyone who reads my posts or comments knows I’m not a Trump fan who thinks that everything he says or tweets is some kind of genius 3D Underwater Chess move to defeat his enemies – quite frankly, I think a lot of it is just an egotistical guy running off at the mouth. That […]

Female Body Parts 2018!

You may recall that only a couple of months ago, a Virginia Democrat named Dan Helmer destroyed his own political career before it began by running what I assumed to be the cringiest campaign ad of the year. I was wrong. I was so very, very wrong.

Meet Dana Nessel, who’s running for Attorney […]

He Puts The OH In Ohio, Apparently

Bill O’Neill is an Ohio Supreme Court Justice and a Democrat who is running for Governor of the state, and has decided to get some social media attention for his campaign in an…interesting way. After hearing about the sexual harassment allegations against fellow Democrat Al Franken, he decided to respond to them by posting the […]

Tuesday Open Thread

Last night I gave a speech at our leadership institute entitled “Civility in Uncivil Times” the gist of which is that we are not necessarily more uncivil than other times in our past (as the above cartoon printed by Andrew Jackson supporters in 1828 attests — ditto JQA’s followers hounding Mrs. Jackson to her […]

Random Thoughts On Last Night's Elections

*Well, there’s no other way to put it: last night was a bad night for Republicans, and hopefully this will be a wake-up call for the GOP that they really need to get it in gear and start getting things done, especially given how badly the party in power tends to do in midterm […]

(It figures that my state would be blue no matter what.)

Stop Oppressing Me With Your Freedom!

Nobody brings the red meat quite like the great Matt Walsh, and his latest on religious liberty, where he addresses the oft-repeated liberal claim that Christians are “forcing their morality on others,” is a must-read.

No matter how you read the Bill of Rights, there’s no way to interpret it as granting the government […]

How A Danish Drama Explains The Left's Nazi Obsession

Though not widely seen in its release outside of film festivals and art houses, Thomas Vinterberg’s drama The Hunt is arguably the best film to come out of Europe in the last few years. It was nominated for an Oscar and is building a following on DVD/streaming, and is currently #104 on IMDB’s list […]

Rocky Mountain High

One of the reasons I’m a big supporter of federalism is that it allows individual states to try out new policies, and the rest of us can stand back and gauge the results to see how well they work. (The effect of this is negated somewhat by the fact that liberals tend to force […]
