Why Do We Loathe Him?

Fun article over on Quora the other day. Someone asked “Why are people so hostile towards President Donald Trump?” And here was a brilliant answer from “Chris O’Leary, former 10 years of Active Duty at U.S. Marine Corps (1989-2000).” Mr. O’Leary, who is anything but a Liberal Snowflake, goes into detail about just how much…

The Third World Is Aware, Too

Sometimes it can be hard for the Progressive Left to keep in sympathy with the Non-Western world. All too often, it seems, Arab, Third World, African, and Latin American elites are eager to blame the West for all world’s problems, without acknowledging their own role in some of the worst of those same problems.

“Us Against Xians”

I’ve seen a couple of articles recently that both intrigue me and worry me, and which spring out of recent attacks on Christian communities in non-Christian countries — for example, the Sri Lankan church bombings. I find these interesting and probably useful to us as a culture because they confront us with two important facts:…

Yang Distresses Me

From the Editor’s Desk I am distressed by how often I find myself writing about Andrew Yang, this year’s most inexplicable candidate for President. I don’t think he should be president. He doesn’t have the background for it. He’s a successful high tech CEO, yes, but that really isn’t what you need to be in…

Who Lives By The Bot…

robots

There was an amusing (and sad) story in the press last month. It seems that there is a kids-only talent show in TV in Russia, sort of like America’s Got Talent or Britain’s Got Talent with children. It’s called The Voice Kids, and the winners are determined (at least in part) by popular vote. Viewers…
