Last night, as the wind blew out of the west and showers threatened I heard some loud booms, then smaller ones off to the southwest. Had the civil unrest started? Were the local religious fanatics attacking city hall with bombs and bullets, formalizing their protest on the mask mandate? Had …

I fell off a ladder the other day. Stupid, I know, but I need to relearn things now and then. You see, I was in a hurry to get done, pulling a stubborn nail from a ten-foot top plate. I didn’t have a good angle, so I was leaning on a ladder. Me, the crow bar and the nailed brace hit the conc…

The Federalist has a story about the CIA continuing to frustrate any investigation into America’s worst-ever scandal, the Russia hoax. It is the kind of story I often don’t pay attention to, as it is based on the accounts of “multiple senior U.S. officials.” So take it for what it is worth. …

Amy Coney Barrett’s family is more diverse than many of the elite liberal institutions that claim to believe in diversity, a Washington Free Beacon analysis has found. Many of those same institutions, it turns out, are radically opposed to Barrett’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court follo…

Right now it feels that we are living in a world gone mad. Covid-19 has impacted every country on earth, and it feels like it’s never going to end. There’s a tension in the air that we are mostly unaware of feeling, as if we’re not able to draw a deep breath anymore.

Idaho is one of 37 states with a Blaine Amendment in our state Constitution. It’s named after the James Blaine, Speaker of the House of Representatives in the 1870’s. He tried to get Congress to pass an amendment to the Constitution, but came up short in the Senate. Not to be deterred, he we…

Well, well, well … perhaps all isn’t entirely lost in the Twin Cities after all. Yesterday morning, Project Veritas released an exposé of potentially large-scale ballot-harvesting fraud in Minneapolis’ Somali community, complete with social-media video bragging about it. “It’s an open secret…

This is the time of year that people, mostly reporter-people, fuss and muss about all the promises politicians do not keep. And sure, it’s worthwhile to remind the political class of the things they said that did not happen.

With the passing of Justice Ginsberg it looks like President Trump will have the fortune to appoint three Supreme Court justices in his first term. Such power might be just what his evangelical supporters hoped for when they excused his unsaintly behavior and voted for him. The hope to make …

Labor Day has become a holiday for recreation, not a celebration of organized labor. Such a transformation is appropriate, since the workers now shoot up entertainment, diversion and consumption: it’s the new “opiate of the masses”. After all, who got rich on Oxycontin, and who got dead?
