A War With Syria Has Begun

Written by Gary North on April 8, 2017

Woodrow Wilson won the election of 1916 because he campaigned on a platform of peace. He had kept us out of war. On April 2, 1917, he asked Congress for a declaration of war against Germany. The Senate voted to go to war on April 4. It took until April 6 for the House of […]

Koppel vs. Hannity: “Too Much Diversity!”

Written by Gary North on April 1, 2017

Ted Koppel interviewed Sean Hannity on Sunday Morning on March 26. This exchange took place: [Hannity] “We have to give some credit to the American people that they’re somewhat intelligent and that they know the difference between an opinion show and a news show. You’re cynical.” “I am cynical,” said Koppel. “Do you think we’re […]

The Futility of Anti-

Written by Gary North on February 25, 2017

“You can’t beat something with nothing.” That is an old slogan out of American politics. It applies to all of life. In every philosophical system, there is a pro and a con. There is a benefit and a liability. There is something to be attained and something to be avoided. There are positive sanctions and […]

A Hitler Defender Calls Me Out

Written by Gary North on October 29, 2016

I recently wrote an article on Hitler’s military leadership. I called him the biggest military fool in history. Hitler failed to crush the British army at Dunkirk in May 1940. On June 22, 1941, he ordered the army to invade the Soviet Union. He declared war on the United States on December 11, 1941. Three […]

The Revolutions Were

Written by Gary North on October 1, 2016

“There are those who still think they are holding the pass against a revolution that may be coming up the road. But they are gazing in the wrong direction. The revolution is behind them. It went by in the Night of Depression, singing songs to freedom.” — Garet Garrett, The Revolution Was (1938) There have […]

Sucker Play: The Supreme Court Card

Written by Gary North on September 3, 2016

“Our country can survive the occasional infelicities and improprieties of Donald Trump. But it cannot survive losing the Supreme Court to liberals and allowing them to wreck our sacred republic. It would reshape the country for decades.” — Bill Bennett How seriously should we take this prediction. Not at all. How seriously should we take […]

On Understanding What You Read

Written by Gary North on September 3, 2016

In the past three weeks, I have been sent two emails regarding a review I wrote in 2012 of a silly anti-Communist documentary, Agenda (2010). The thesis of this documentary is that Communism is not only alive and well, it is about to conquer America. In fact, we are almost out of time. Communism is […]

How Conservative PAC’s Suckered Tea Party Donors

Posted on August 20, 2016

By Paul H. Jossey As we watch the Republican Party tear itself to shreds over Donald Trump, perhaps it’s time to take note of another conservative political phenomenon that the GOP nominee has utterly eclipsed: the Tea Party. The Tea Party movement is pretty much dead now, but it didn’t die a natural death. It […]

Video: The Campaign Speech That Elected Reagan

Written by Gary North on July 23, 2016

In early September, 1980, Ronald Reagan came to Dallas to deliver a speech to 15,000 Christians at Reunion Arena (since torn down). It was the final session of the National Affairs Briefing Conference. All three presidential candidates were asked to speak: Reagan, Carter, and Anderson (lest we forget). Only Reagan accepted. For three days before […]

Defensive Burn-Out

Written by Gary North on June 11, 2016

And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not (Gal. 6:9). After years or even decades “in the trenches,” people who have dedicated their time and money to a defensive cause tend to get burned out. In the mid-1950’s, the woman who first introduced […]
