    Kavanaugh and the Roe Dance

    Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination by President Trump for the blessed vacancy left by retiring justice Anthony Kennedy, author of the civilization-defying Obergefell opinion, supplied the heat necessary to cause the vaunted American melting pot to boil over and reveal its rancid contents.

    The Catfish Binary, Part 1

    Summer is the time for lazy fishing in the hot sun. That calls for a fish story. And what follows is no tall tale, although I think the moral of the story is quite significant. For I am now willing to say, without exaggeration, that catfish perfectly symbolize our great national problem.

    Jordan Peterson and the Unknown God

    To some, Jordan Peterson is a breath of fresh air. To others, a guru. Many find him and his ideas to be dangerous. Still others see him as a sign of the times. In a sense, they’re all right.

    What the Editors Are Reading

    I discovered only by accident a week ago a little book called Liberalism, by the English philosopher John Gray, published originally in 1986 and in its second edition in 1995.

    Iran and Nuclear Hubris

    The “Iran Nuclear Deal” was killed by President Trump on May 8, which came as no surprise to anyone who had heard a Trump campaign speech in 2016 or to those who were aware that Trump had recently hired John Bolton and Mike Pompeo. Surprise or not, it was an imprudent move.

    Speaking of Hell

    Did Pope Francis deny the existence of Hell? If previous episodes in this pontificate are any guide, those who earnestly seek a definitive answer will likely discover that, much like the natural fate of the Tootsie Pop, the world may never know.

    Our Sanctuary Census

    Paroxysms of liberal outrage gripped denizens of the Swamp when the Commerce Department announced that it plans to find out the citizenship status of U.S. residents by asking them directly via the 2020 Census and the U.S. Mail.

    Ominous Omnibus: Washington's Eternal Present

    Our GOP-controlled Congress passed an Omnibus Spending Bill valued at $1.3 trillion that maintains America’s $500 million annual contribution to Planned Parenthood, our largest abortion mill. My question for Paul Ryan, Republican Speaker of the House, is this: Do you believe in Judgment Day?

    Hour of Decision

    Looking objectively at the legacy of Billy Graham in the wake of his passing is virtually impossible, especially for me personally. I know several people who answered the altar call at a Graham crusade, “just as I am without one plea, but that Thy blood was shed for me,” and mark that occasion as their conversion to Christ; and about these conversions I have no doubt.

    What the Editors Are Reading

    Not a find, but an old friend, is Malcolm Muggeridge. I am reading a collection of his essays called Time and Eternity, and his golden spiritual autobiography, Confessions of a Twentieth-Century Pilgrim, written after he and his wife, past their four-score years, had been received into the Catholic Church.

    America’s Death Wish

    Parkland, Florida, came and went, bringing a new St. Valentine’s Day massacre, another unspeakable horror, and another opportunity for hashtags and political maneuvering over guns in America.

    Mercenary Dick's and the Assault on Liberty

    Dick's Sporting Goods is using 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz's evil act of killing 17 innocents and wounding many others to boost its flagging sales and brandish its p.c. bona fides, to the delight of liberals everywhere. Don't buy their Liberty Bucket.

    Will Democrats Learn?

    Year after year, a president gives a State of the Union Address, and year after year the minority party’s response is predictably awful.

    Crashing Under the Fourth Wave

    Professional Democrats, like the proverbial dog who returns to his vomit, cannot quit the idea that their grotesque caricatures of those who hold traditional views of marriage and family, men and women, borders and citizenship, and meaningful employment will appeal to enough of the electorate to return control of the government to them.

    Trump, the Deplorables, and the Aforementioned "Sh-thole"

    It is not "racist" to recognize that our elite class, which regularly browbeats American citizens with accusations of bigotry, is not being charitable by virtue signaling about the plight of foreign people who live in decrepit places and want to move and remain here. Especially when "here" means the very places that those same elites refer to as American "sh-tholes," all the while pursuing policies that further their ruin.

    Cult of America, Part I

    Whether or not America is or ever was a Christian nation is hotly debated. It is fashionable today on the left to ascribe whatever currently is deemed by it to be unacceptable to the legacy of privileged patriarchal white men whose Christianity gave them an excuse to own slaves and otherwise oppress minorities.

    Prince of Darkness

    As the calendar rolls over to 2018, we need to take stock of where we are as Americans, noting the dangers that lie ahead. Those dangers involve politics, culture, economics, foreign policy, and religion, as well as our capacity as postmodern people for thinking in terms of unchanging moral truths and applying them.

    Graham Crackers, Corn Flakes, and Other Grrrrreat American Heresies

    “Dad,” the inquisitive youngster is bound to ask, “where do corn flakes come from?” In today’s economy, where farms are something you drive by on your way to Disneyland, the most common answer might be “Kroger” or “the 7-Eleven” instead of “from the farm, son, from cornfields.”

    Hollywood loves Christmas, or Winterfest, or whatever they’re calling it these days. This is because many Americans make it the most wonderful time of the year for the studios, offering them gifts of gold.

    On the Altar of Empire

    The GOP-controlled Congress has received a report from the Pentagon advocating the conscription of women—the daughters, young wives, and young mothers of America, ages 18 to 25—according to the Washington Times.
