Hillary and the Fundamental Legal Premise of Tyranny

We now know that the FBI’s dereliction of duty regarding Hillary Clinton’s e-mail malfeasance is complete. Not only did Director James Comey have the gall to explain her guilt in the very statement in which he announced that he (against the better judgment of some agents) would not recommend charges against her, but the FBI actually agreed to destroy laptops...

America 0.5: NeverTrump vs. NeverHillary

What a wonderful year 2016 has turned out to be for the United States of America! Finally, after decades of near misses, she has at last hit the electoral bull’s eye, achieving the statistical near-impossibility of staging a presidential election battle between the two least qualified people in the entire country. Remember that strange old New World nation once thought...

Is Trump a McConnell-Rove Establishment Tool?

(Originally published in January 2016) On January 19, Donald Trump, the loudest Republican claimant to the anti-establishment label, filled out his recent attacks on Ted Cruz in a very telling way, as revealed on Mark Levin’s radio program that evening: We’ve been contacted by the establishment types. They all want to know, how do they get involved with the campaign?...

Trump’s Paper Tiger Rebellion Against Conservatives

(Originally published in February 2012) In the spring of 2011, Donald Trump threatened to start a revolution within the Republican Party, appealing to the naïve among Tea Partiers by promising to take on President Obama as no one else could. All too many members of the conservative media, including even some highly reputable ones, took his nonsense seriously. Even after...

Benghazi Reveals the Heart of Progressivism

(Originally published in May 2013) In the first months after the Benghazi attack, the most urgent question, and one only rarely asked, was “What were Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton doing during the seven and a half hours between the initial emergency communications from Benghazi and the final American deaths?” A negative answer was provided in February by Leon Panetta:...

Benghazi and the Banality of Evil

(Originally published in August 2013) Is it just me, or is the string of distractions that seem to pop up right on cue every time new light is about to be shed on the Benghazi story getting a little old? Months late, CNN has gotten around to “breaking” a story that might help to complete the disturbing puzzle for the...

Drudge in the Dregs Again

(Originally published in February 2012) Republican establishment media alert: On the eve of the Michigan and Arizona primaries, the establishment’s new favorite enforcer, Matt Drudge, was at it again. As I have chronicled so many of The Drudge Report‘s clever, and cleverly timed, manipulations over the course of this primary season, I trust no one will have the gall to...

When Anger Trumps All, Freedom Loses

(Originally Published in February 2016) One of the most dangerous effects of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign is the venomous anger his demagoguery has cultivated among his more engaged supporters, to be spewed at anyone who dares to express concern about any of their idol’s (yes, idol’s) soft spots. Just click on any article, on any website, critical of anything about...

Arranging American Gun Confiscation

(Originally published in October 2015) America’s progressive chatter on guns has been shifting noticeably from the abstract language of “control” to the concrete language of “confiscation.” Hillary Clinton is just the latest leading voice to serve notice that the forced disarmament of law-abiding Americans is not the dystopian fantasy of paranoids, but a matter of current policy discussion—and action. During...

Hillary Gives the Game Away

(Originally published in January 2013) Hillary Clinton’s angry flip-out at Senator Ron Johnson during her Benghazi testimony was a charmed moment. All at once, before the whole world, one of the highest ranking progressive authoritarians on the planet spilled the beans – all of them – about the left’s modus operandi. The revelation might be overlooked, however, if we focus...
