Exploiting the Capitol Riot to Kill Trump

By |2021-01-15T08:44:19-06:00January 14th, 2021|Categories: American Republic, Donald Trump, Pat Buchanan, Presidency|

What would be the purpose of impeaching a president who hasn't been president for three months?  Answer: A conviction would strip Republicans of the right to reelect the man who got the largest number of votes in their party's history. Donald Trump has stumbled and fallen, and the establishment is not going to let slip [...]

Whither America After the 2020 Election?

By |2020-12-11T11:14:38-06:00December 11th, 2020|Categories: Civil Society, Pat Buchanan, Politics|

Though secession is unlikely, a secession of the heart has already taken place in America. We are two nations, two peoples seemingly separated indefinitely. Can a nation so divided as ours, racially, ideologically, religiously, still do great things together, as did the America of days gone by, to the amazement of the world? When the [...]

What Joe Biden’s First 100 Days Might Look Like

By |2020-12-08T12:56:46-06:00December 8th, 2020|Categories: Pat Buchanan, Politics, Presidency|

The truly formidable challenge for a President Biden will be China, which is not the China of 2016 that Vice President Biden recalls. The Biden-Harris administration will confront "a pandemic, an economic crisis, calls for racial justice and climate change. The team being assembled will meet these challenges on Day One." So declares the transition [...]

A Historic Presidency

By |2020-11-28T22:16:42-06:00November 28th, 2020|Categories: Donald Trump, Pat Buchanan, Presidency|

Can anyone believe that Bush Republicans or the "Never-Trumpers" are the future of the party when one considers the massive and visceral reaction of millions of Trump voters even to the idea of conceding his defeat in this election? In the first two decades of the century, President-elect Joe Biden's choice for secretary of state [...]

Who Owns the Future?

By |2020-11-16T16:16:57-06:00November 13th, 2020|Categories: American Republic, Pat Buchanan, Politics|

 If Democrats can kill the filibuster and pack the Supreme Court, if they can add four new senators from Puerto Rico and D.C., and if they can pack the electorate by turning millions of migrants, legal and illegal, into U.S. citizens and regular voters, then you don't need to be a weatherman to know which [...]

Can a Disintegrating America Come Together?

By |2020-11-13T15:22:49-06:00November 3rd, 2020|Categories: American Republic, Civil Society, Pat Buchanan, Politics|

Today, we are divided over ideology, morality, culture, race and history. We are divided over whether America is the great nation we were raised to revere and love or a nation born in great sins and crimes. On the last days of the 2020 campaign, President Donald Trump was holding four and five rallies a [...]

America: A Land of Ceaseless Conflict

By |2020-10-24T08:39:53-05:00October 24th, 2020|Categories: American Republic, Civil Society, Pat Buchanan|

The idea of bipartisan comity, or some new era of national unity should Joe Biden win the coming election, is self-delusion. New divides in our society, manifest in 2020, are piled upon old divisions dating back decades. Now, not only are we fractured over ideology, religion, race, culture and morality, but also our country's history [...]

Is War With China Becoming Inevitable?

By |2020-10-13T12:30:03-05:00October 13th, 2020|Categories: Foreign Affairs, Pat Buchanan, War|

Tensions are rising between the U.S. and China, as the list of ideological, political and economic clashes continues to lengthen. And there is a transparent new reality: China seems in no mood to back down. "The Indians are seeing 60,000 Chinese soldiers on their northern border," Secretary of State Michael Pompeo ominously warned on Friday. [...]

Will Justice Barrett Seal a Conservative Majority on the High Court?

By |2020-09-29T16:15:42-05:00September 28th, 2020|Categories: Donald Trump, Pat Buchanan, Politics, Presidency, Supreme Court|

President Trump's remaking of the Supreme Court for constitutionalism may well be the crown jewel of his presidency. If Judge Barrett becomes Justice Barrett, she will join Justices Clarence Thomas, Sam Alito, Neil Gorsuch, and Brett Kavanaugh to create a constitutionalist core of five justices, a controlling majority. By nominating Federal Judge Amy Coney Barrett [...]

The SCOTUS Pick: All the Chips Are on the Table Now

By |2020-09-25T11:35:32-05:00September 25th, 2020|Categories: Donald Trump, Pat Buchanan, Supreme Court|

On the court issue, Democrats are exhibiting something akin to panic. They are warning that if a conservative jurist like Amy Coney Barrett is confirmed, Democrats may retaliate by "packing" the Supreme Court — increasing the number of justices from nine to 11 and installing two new liberals — if they win the presidency and [...]

Last Best Chance to Capture Supreme Court

By |2020-09-25T09:31:03-05:00September 22nd, 2020|Categories: Donald Trump, Pat Buchanan, Politics, Presidency, Supreme Court|

Today, the hour of President Trump's triumph may be at hand, and the stark panic on the left testifies to it. Are there Republicans who would really walk away from this last, best chance to secure the court, simply because the process offends their sense of proper procedure? President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader [...]
