For the first time in a very long time, no one is second-guessing the decision by a police officer to use deadly force against an unarmed woman. Why?

Now, as the architects of a potential realignment scramble to redraw their plans with Donald Trump scratched out, it is not surprising that attempts to revive Theodore Roosevelt’s legacy in the Republican party are abundant. If a Roosevelt-style shakeup really is expected—and it certainly would be welcome—just who would our “Bull Moose” be? With the [...]

For all the babbling about "democracy" we have heard in recent days, the establishment wants to eliminate the possibility that the people could rise up, and, horror of horrors, elect Donald Trump once more. As soon as the Senate received the lone article of impeachment accusing President Donald Trump of "incitement of insurrection" in the [...]

Trump Was No Reagan?

According to Frank Lavin in “National Review,” Donald Trump was no Ronald Reagan. But if Reagan had been forced to deal with frequent attacks and calls for assaults from adversaries like Trump’s, wouldn’t his approval rating and his temper have taken a hit too? National Review has found yet another reason to hate Trump, whom [...]

In the wake of the Trump presidency, we are reminded of a persistent theme amongst mainstream evangelical elites: They, like the media of the last four years, have falsely attributed certain ideas, attitudes, and behaviors to Donald Trump, his supporters, and Christian nationalists.[1] The question is why. At this point, it would be incorrect to [...]

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 [...]

A Historic 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 [...]

By |2020-11-02T16:24:41-06:00November 2nd, 2020|Categories: American Republic, Books, Donald Trump, Politics, Presidency, Republicans|

At the heart of Stuart Stevens’ “It Was All A Lie” are, ironically, lies about Donald Trump.  Though he relentlessly attacks the president’s character, the author actually exposes his own heart by way of offering a mea culpa for his long-time association with and advocacy for a political party that he now deems to have [...]

Editorializing in news stories, once verboten, has now become de rigueur. Journalism, never perfect at any moment of its history, but full of aspiration to be objective and balanced, has now conceded entirely to Nietzsche’s critique of empiricism: “There are no facts, only interpretations.” Many years ago, in an earlier contentious era of American politics, [...]
