Russian Excuse Robs Dems of 2016's Lessons

If the Russians lost the election, then the Democrats possess little chance to win the Americans. With the knowledge that the working-class whites who elected Trump go by Sergey instead of Steve, Mikhail instead of Michael, and Yevgeniy instead of Gene, Democrats — phew! — feel empowered to grab for guns, mock prayer, and welcome the rest of the Western Hemisphere to move into your neighborhood. Read my column @ the American Spectator on how not accepting defeat denies the vanquished the tools to win on another day.

Robert Mueller's Truth Is Out There

I want to believe, The X-Files informs. Special counsel Robert Mueller wants to believe, too. And when someone wants to believe something, they usually do. Read my column @ the American Spectator on how the former FBI director's truth is out there further than the two fictional FBI agents on The X-Files

Say It Ain't So, Big O

Big Bird Is Watching You

"If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face — forever,” George Orwell offered in the first half of the 20th century. He did not foresee a bird wearing that boot in the new millennium. Read my column @ the American Spectator on Twitter's "shadow banning" of conservatives. 

Social Justice Satanists

Nobody likes a hypocrite. Sunday school teachers who rip off hookers on Saturday night make us really, really mad. Do-gooder Satanists out to save the world — pursuing “radical politics, feminist aesthetics and community unity” in the name of their religion — irritate terribly, too.​ Read my article @ the American Spectator on how a new wave of caring Satanists just wants to make the world a better place. 

2017, the Worst Year Until 2018

Twenty seventeen passes as a terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad year for caring mentors passionate about administering shoulder rubs to interns, the Russian-American Goodwill Association, and statuary who sin against the present by standing as monuments to its ignorance of the pas​t. Read my recap of the year that gets better and better as your life gets worse @ the American Spectator

Word of the Year

Leading dictionaries selected "feminism," "youthquake," and "complicit" as their words of the year, offering heavily-politicized reasons to explain their choices. In selecting these as the year’s supposed buzzwords, the ventriloquists at Oxford, Merriam-Webster, and put words in our mouths. Read my article @ City Journal, appearing in abridged form in the Wall Street Journal, on how the words define them, not us.

Grassy Knolls, in Dallas, Bowling Green, & Our Imaginations

A Communist killed the president 54 years ago this month and a left-winger assaulted the senator last week. It flatters some to believe otherwise, so some believe otherwise. And if 54 years, and the release in the past month of thousands of documents, cannot unravel conspiracy theories surrounding Dallas, then the likelihood of journalists and others ideologically committed to an alternative telling of a much more minor event in Bowling Green accepting the truth appear slim — and Slim’s in Texas (presumably on the grassy knoll near the Texas School Book Depository in Dealey Plaza).​ Read my article @ the American Spectator on how more than a grassy knoll links the attacks on politicians riding in a convertable and on a lawnmower tractor.
