It can be hard for ordinary Americans who oppose the radical agenda of the woke left to know how to fight back. Here are a few practical ideas.
As the coronavirus death rate falls in the United States, infections and deaths are both rising in Mexico even as drug cartels target top government officials.
The Black Lives Matter movement is not a majority. Its radical agenda can be resisted and defeated. But not if ordinary Americans stay silent.
Twitter’s policies about misleading tweets and abusive behavior are deeply cynical and designed merely to censor speech Jack Dorsey doesn’t like.
Rarified conservative arguments that we should remove Confederate monuments is tantamount to accepting the left’s vision of America as irredeemably racist.
By treating Black Lives Matters protests differently than other large gatherings, public officials and health experts have exposed themselves as hypocrites.
The mobs defacing and pulling down monuments across America have no limiting principle because their target is America itself.
Black Lives Matter isn’t interested in fighting actual racism. But it is interested in whether you support its agenda—and getting you fired if you don’t.
The rise of vigilante groups in Mexico offers a hint of what happens when institutions fail and civil society collapses. America should be paying attention.
Calls to defund or abolish the police are not about restoring an open and liberal society, they are about tearing it down and seizing power.
The left’s multi-decade project to teach everyone that America is irredeemably racist has led to the emergence of a new regime in American life.
The media lied about the Russia collusion hoax, about the Mueller probe, about impeachment, about the coronavirus—and now they’re lying about the riots.
The debate about whether social media companies should have protection from liability misses a larger question about their role in American society.
If Twitter wants to editorialize and ‘factcheck’ President Trump’s tweets with disclaimers, then it should be treated like any other publisher.
Churchgoers across the country are reasserting their fundamental rights of conscience—rights that too many political leaders have forgotten or denied.
Federal surveillance laws put in place after Nixon were supposed to protect U.S. citizens. The Obama administration used them to spy on political opponents.
Let’s dispense with the facile comparisons to LeBron James—or anyone else. It’s not even close.
The media are fixated on Trump’s use of the term ‘Obamagate’ but refuse to tell the truth about the Russia collusion hoax.
Instead of making the accused killers look better, the graphic video leaves little doubt that Arbery was flat-out murdered.
Given the facts so far, this looks like a case where being white and knowing the right people have made a mockery of justice.
