A Conservative Case Against Steve King

Representative Steve King of Iowa was recently in the news cycle because he said something controversial. Again. But unlike past things he’s said, which were arguably not meant in a racist fashion, this latest comment raises serious concerns. King recently asked the following in an interview: “White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?” That sounds awful. But before we jump on the bandwagon, let’s look carefully at his record. King’s Past Statements In 2016, Rep. King told an Esquire writer at CPAC: The contributions that were made by Western civilization itself, and by Americans, by Americans of all races...

From #MeToo to The Pence Effect

The #MeToo Movement began as the long-overdue exposure of Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein’s horrendous behavior involving young actresses. Countless individuals in Hollywood, including other women who knew his victims, hid his misdeeds for decades. The hypocrisy came not from his victims, but from these powerful Hollywood elites. Many powerful people knew or suspected Weinstein’s behavior was monstrous, but looked away. Weinstein, Woody Allen, and the slow march of other stars revealed to have engaged in sick behavior became a tidal wave. Those two hit just about every note of evil creep with regards to younger women, and in reaction to such abuses, #MeToo came about. #MeToo...

Russell Kirk’s Words Still Speak

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Russell Amos Kirk, the godfather of American conservatism. Kirk authored a study titled The Conservative Mind: From Burke to Santayana (later changed to Eliot) in his early 30s. The book set off a storm of now-forgotten chatter: finally, there was an argument for a coherent American conservative tradition. The Old Right, consisting of Albert Jay Nock, Rose Wilder Lane, and John T. Flynn had been folded into something bigger. That starting point would bridge the years of WWII and grow in the 50s into a movement. And at the heart...

Why Leftists Won’t Take a Loss on Kavanaugh

Brett Kavanaugh has been approved as the newest Associate Justice of the Supreme Court. But the Left, which cannot stand the thought of losing something like a Supreme Court seat, went all-out to destroy Kavanaugh. Many progressives fought his nomination up to the bitter end. Some are still looking to fight his nomination after-the-fact by trying to impeach him. Why is the Left so determined to destroy this man? Now that this fight is won, we need to look at what happened to try and understand why. The Man of the Hour Kavanaugh has a typical Republican political background. He attended prep school in Maryland, followed by...
