Peter Hitchens has written a good article on the recent hysteria surrounding Russia as the new Great Bogeyman. American liberals are desperate for any reason why they can blame Granny Hill’s election loss on something other than the obvious: that voters didn’t like her.

Vulgar Display of Power: Brutalist Architecture.

If you grew up in Milwaukee, WI, like I did – then you might recognize this: This is the original Milwaukee Art Museum, before mercifully receiving a newer and less horrifying addition next door in the early 2000s.

“Buy American!” – A Protectionist Dialogue.

In light of the recent announcement of Trump’s “Buy American” executive orders, I present a theoretical dialogue between Trump and myself: Trump: “Buy American!” Me: “Noted.” Trump: “Let me rephrase that: I demand you to buy American.” Me: “Why?” Trump: “Because it’s your duty!” Me: “Why?” Trump: “Because it helps the economy!” Me: “How?” Trump: […]

War… Again: Trump, Syria, and Gary Johnson.

During the last election cycle, Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson was asked for his policy views on the Syrian Civil War – specifically, what was happening at the time in the city of Aleppo. He replied with a mildly blank stare, “What is Aleppo?” He was heavily derided at the time as an uninformed moron. Me? […]

Trump’s Moment of Truth: Federal Reserve Audit?

A bill has proceeded in Congress to audit the Federal Reserve – the most pervasive fascist institution in the United States. This is not necessarily new.
