Rape is one of the worst things that can happen to a woman! It’s indefensible, and never deserved. No means no, and no one is to blame but the rapist. This is how every proposal or suggestion on the subject of women’s self-defense begins. The words are all true, of course, but they should go without saying. No one is suggesting that women deserve to be raped, or that the burden to prevent it lies on them. However, that is the starting point from which leftists angrily dismantle any call to give women their Constitutional right to defend themselves. Politicizing...Read More

Thursday, June 8th was the day of the James Comey hearing. That day seemed to have been circled in bright red ink on the desk calendars of conspiracy theorists, disillusioned leftists, and never-Trumpers everywhere. The elaborate web of treason spun by President Trump’s administration would be laid bare for the world to see. Surely, this would be the final nail in the coffin. It would reveal once and for all that President Trump and his campaign worked with the Russians to subvert American democracy. We would finally have evidence of Trump’s collusion with Vladimir Putin! But that’s not what happened. Instead, the...Read More
This past week, we saw President Trump post his now infamous “covfefe” tweet and his subsequent humorous response. Many Americans responded with a series of mostly tongue-in-cheek news reports and analyses exploring the word’s potential meaning. The word was obviously a typographical error, and the media response was generally light and fun. However, the episode underscored the power of the President’s personal Twitter account to influence the news cycle. We need to consider how Americans should respond to other more serious postings by our president. Why So Serious? We live in a time when a single error can inspire parodies and widespread humorous speculation. As...Read More
In the wake of the devastating attack in Manchester, terrorism and the appropriate response to it are for once being strongly addressed in international discourse. Although the attacker was a British citizen, he was born into a family of migrants who fled their native Yemen for the security of the United Kingdom. Authorities believe that the family returned to Libya following the overthrow and death of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011. The attacker, whom President Trump fittingly dubbed an “evil loser,” returned to his childhood home of England just days before carrying out the horrific massacre in Manchester. In doing so, he took...Read More
The year is 2017. College professors are reportedly engaging in domestic terrorist activity. Schools openly and shamelessly promote leftist thought, and hostility and violence toward dissenting thinkers is flourishing on campuses nationwide. Anyone right of center is labeled fascist, and Bill Nye is still considered a real scientist. Lawlessness abounds, while the term “fake news” has officially become part of the American lexicon. As conservatives, we understand that there is no freedom without freedom of speech. We also know that, once our First Amendment rights became suppressed through the educational system, any hope of having productive discourse died along...Read More
