    Don't call antifa hooligans terrorists — but stop appeasing them

    The Obama Department of Homeland Security concluded that left-wing “antifa” forces were engaged in “domestic terrorist violence,” according to documents obtained by Politico. Who am I to argue with the fine men and women of President Obama’s DHS? In fact, as someone who has been fighting with antifa...

    Harvey shows that Americans can still rise above politics

    Even hurricanes have a silver lining: The downpour washes away a lot of bull. Don’t get me wrong. This is a tragedy for untold thousands of people.

    “The Trump base is far bigger & stronger than ever before,” the president declared in a series of tweets Monday morning, and that “will never change.” Many observers were quick to point out that this assertion isn’t borne out in the polls. Such nitpicking, however, overlooks an more important part...

    Politics races to the bottom: vulgarities, double standards, oh, and that extra long tie

    A friend of mine who attended the Conservative Political Action Conference this year — I skipped it — reported to me that the Young Republican men were “wearing their ties down past their [crotches].” I cleaned up the quote a bit for the benefit of a family newspaper.
