At the State of the Union address on Tuesday, Donald Trump ramped up the pressure on Democrats to fund his version of border security, which includes a border wall. After the mainstream media declared Nancy Pelosi the winner of the previous stand-off which caused a government shutdown, Trump seems to be signaling a readiness for a rematch. Here is...

Trump’s speech last night was a momentous event. In fact, one can safely say that his address contained more memorable moments than any State of the Union speech in recent history. For a full hour and a half, Trump touted America’s greatness not merely with facts and accomplishments, but with a seemingly endless stream of anecdotes about veterans,...

Donald Trump loves winning. But, recently, his streak was broken after a shutdown fight failed to end the way he hoped it would. After an agreement was reached which did not include funding for Trump's border wall, the mainstream media unanimously declared Nancy Pelosi the “winner” of the contest.

During his State of the Union speech, tonight, Trump...

“The state of the Union is strong.”

That is the case most presidents attempt to make in their addresses to the nation, especially as re-election approaches. From an economic standpoint, Donald Trump has an impressive case to make for America’s strength. But, ever since the fall of the Soviet Union, Americans rarely look to over-all economic indicato...

This was not a good week for Virginia Governor Ralph Northam. Just yesterday, a yearbook photo emerged of the governor dressed in full KKK regalia posing with his friend who was dressed in blackface. This revelation came out while the governor was already the center controversy for remarks he made in defense of Virginia House Bill 2491, which threa...

Political pundits love to predict the failure of the opposing political party, especially after their side wins a presidential election. After Ronald Reagan's landslide victory over Walter Mondale, William F. Buckley’s “Firing Line” discussed whether there was a "liberal crack-up" dooming Democrats to historical irrelevance. In 2012, afte...

On your right stands a group of young kids—firm believers in a universal Christian faith. Although they are not yet old enough to vote, the group is already politically involved enough to wear partisan headgear and attend political marches. Their attendance at the March for Life expresses a hope that, one day, America will rise up to live out the t...

Sexual harassment is a problem that bedevils most major corporations in America. This fact should not come as a surprise to anyone, regardless of political affiliation. But for those with progressive political beliefs who tend to see mega-corporations as nefarious entities that promote greed and privilege, this fact should hardly threaten your worl...

David French thinks he understands masculinity. Yesterday, in a piece on the Atlantic, French described himself and the rest of the #NeverTrump brigade as sheepdogs nipping at the heels of Donald Trump, with Robert Mueller as the pack leader. His metaphor, which was intended to portray the virility of the resistance movement, had the unintended inc...

1 minute, 30 seconds. That is approximately the amount of time it takes before Hitler is mentioned during a conversation with anyone on the far Left. There is a sharp irony in this fact, given that that same Left openly supports a socialist platform and even has a masked paramilitary arm in “Antifa.” What’s more, most of these Left-wing extremists...

Last night, President Trump addressed the nation regarding a crisis at America’s southern border. Some news outlets debated whether or not they would air Trump’s address at all. And, predictably, this morning’s headlines were littered with “fact checks” on the President’s speech. But, as has been the case at least since the 2012 election, articles...

On his podcast, yesterday, conservative pundit Ben Shapiro took aim at a rival conservative pundit Tucker Carlson. Ben claimed that Tucker is part of a populist movement springing up in the Republican Party which needs to be nipped in the bud. What sparked Ben’s ire was a Carlson monologue which discussed Mitt Romney and the failure of po...

The primary election process for the 2020 presidential race has begun. Several Democratic candidates have already announced that they will be running. Some, like Stormy Daniels' lawyer Michael Avenatti, have even completed the cycle from presidential hopeful to hopeless outcast. But, so far, only one thing stands out about the current crop of possi...

Over a month ago, I predicted in this space that the end of the neoconservative Never-Trump movement was near. Last Friday, The Weekly Standard—a magazine that served as the intellectual hub of neoconservativism for over 20 years and has led the right-wing "resistance" movement against President Trump—went under. President Trump, the instrument of...

Last night, George Herbert Walker Bush died the age of 94. His presidency is rightly remembered as a pivotal moment in American politics. His experience as director of the CIA and as Vice President under Ronald Reagan helped secure his election during the final years that the Soviet Union posed a threat to the globe. However, after riding the...

“The task of the modern educator is not to cut down jungles but to irrigate deserts. The right defense against false sentiments is to inculcate just sentiments. By starving the sensibility of our pupils we only make them easier prey to the propagandist when he comes. For famished nature will be avenged and a hard heart is no infallible protection against a soft head.”

C. S. Lewis
