  • Why You Must See Dunkirk

    Reading Time: 3 minutesWhen Winston Churchill mouthed these eternal words, his nation’s life expectancy was about six months. All of Western Civilization, all of Christiandom, seemed doomed.

The pair of humans who brought us […]

  • Senator Rock: Who’s the Joke? (offensive) VIDEO

    Reading Time: 2 minutesMy serious Republican friends (think of people like Chris Wallace and Charles Krauthammer) worry. They worry about this trend toward “unserious” politicians getting elected. They worry about “what it says about voters” who elect Sarah Palin, Donald Trump, and (very soon) Kid Rock.

  • I disavow every Republican who disavowed Trump’s tweets

    Reading Time: 1 minutesWhen Reagan was president, we wanted him to hit back harder on the press. We wanted him to put Sam Donaldson in his place. We wanted him to call out the fake news.
