we-the-peoplejpg-58cf54a726270239_large

A mere four years ago, pundits were bemoaning the death of the Lincoln-Douglas style debate. In an election cycle defined by quips about “binders full of women” and where the most serious dismantling of ideology involved repeatedly calling it “malarkey,” the staid deliberation of 19th century campaigning seemed the height of rhetorical finesse.

It is “trendy” in contemporary journalist ethics to eschew objectivity as an unattainable ideal, a damper on journalists. In a way, this is rational. The veneer of objectivity goes a long way towards exerting a subversive version of Truthful reporting which, when examined, carefully picks and chooses which facts it promotes, which stories and covers and, by exclusion which is ...

What is the Place of Loyalty in Modern Politics?

What role should loyalty play in democratic politics? On the one hand, party systems are necessary to republicanism. They provide structure, put a face on distant and often shrouded political mechanization for voters, unite like-minded individuals around ideas and help them ensure they support policies that work best for them.

For many efficaciously disillusioned Americans, populism is the sole redeeming hope on which hangs a return to political virtue. Yet, modern populists, both left and right, have a spotty record of success. True, the Tea Party and anti-Wall Street, class warfare leftists have seen electoral success in the last couple of elections. However, after assuming power, they have done little. ...

D’Souza Delivers: 2016 Review

2016-obama-s-america01

I have a confession to make. Until quite recently in my life I have been a conspiracy nut. I love conspiracy theories to this day. One of my favorite shows is Ancient Aliens on the “History” Channel, which regularly asserts cover-ups on a global scale of alien intervention on our planet. I’ve been a conspiracy nut since I was a ...
