The defeat of the “remains” on June 23 was one of the great days in my life. Yet I am an American. Why should I care? Answer: because I have been opposed to the New World Order for over half a century. I have watched these clever people pull off the final phase of the […]

James Comey holds all the cards. He can make the decision regarding the correct time to recommend the indictment or non-indictment of Mrs. Clinton. This puts him 100% in charge. Not 50%. Not 75%. Obama has now gone kissy-face with Clinton. This is seen by a lot of commentators as a guarantee that the Justice […]

Recently, I have been thinking about how much life has changed in the last three quarters of a century and how much of that change is influenced by the bureaucracies and federal agencies that hold sway over almost every facet of life in America today.

Charles Hugh Smith begins his essay on widespread fraud in the rhetorically correct way: by stating the truth in a list of short observations.

Robert Nisbet once told this story to a group of grad students. I do not recall if the story was first hand or second hand. A professor was sitting at a table in the student center. Around him were graduate students, hanging on his every word. At another table, a colleague remarked: “There is a […]

I am a conservative. I am a conservative by way of three phenomena that have linked together American conservatives since about 1920: (1) anti-Communism; (2) free market economics; (3) conservative social theory. I regard the most important world figure of the 20th century as Vladimir Lenin. Had it not been for the assassination of the […]

By Joel Skousen   The occupation of the headquarters of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Harney County, Oregon by a small group of armed protesters represents a new and confrontational tactic in the Sagebrush Rebellion–the decades old struggle of Western ranchers against federal control of state lands. While the majority of rancher disputes are […]

Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph. And he said unto his people, Behold, the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we: Come on, let us deal wisely [shrewdly] with them; lest they multiply, and it come to pass, that, when there falleth out […]

competence

Back in 1971, I was interviewed for a teaching position at an obscure Michigan college, one which was officially Christian but which survived only because of the state scholarship program that funneled several hundred nonsectarian, often secular students onto the campus. I had sent the dean my vita, and he hastened to tell me that […]
