    How Will It End?

    Partisan Democrats and their obsessed supporters in the media may relish the ongoing investigation of Russian meddling in the election, but most Americans yearn for these battles to end.

  • Can a Conservative Conduct an Orchestra?

    Most Americans are at least somewhat aware of what is happening at American (and European) universities with regard to conservative speakers. Universities disinvite conservative speakers, never invite them or allow the violent (or threatened violent) prevention of them. No non-left-wing idea should be permitted on campus. But we may have…

    Taking Encouragement from Under-Rated Presidents

    Can a new president with a tenuous mandate and a balky Congress, held in contempt by “enlightened” opinion, nonetheless preside over dynamic years of peace and prosperity?

    Positive Results Trump Political Disappointments
