The Maoist Rage of Woke Ideology
Unlike Marxism, wokeness is primarily a “morality” based on an abstract notion of social justice, which takes its inspiration and methods from Mao’s Cultural Revolution.
Why Wokeism Is Not Marxist
At present, it is not a Marxian anti-capitalist left that most threatens our society. It is a wokeism perfectly happy to consolidate progressive business monopolies with massive economic power over individual lives.

The Republican Party must get its own house in order, suppress the influence of its establishment members, and offer a coherent, principled, and politically viable program to the American electorate.
The Great Conservative Death Wish
The unremitting success of the left’s march through Western institutions hardly suggests that liberals suffer from a death wish; on the contrary, it is conservatism that appears to be consuming itself.
An Underwhelming Haul
Despite enjoying many advantages, from the state of the economy to Biden's unpopular presidency, Republicans were out-electioneered by the Democrats in the 2022 midterms. How did it happen?

The Myth of the Spanish Civil War
One of the last great leftist myths of the 20th century is that the Spanish Civil War was a struggle of republican democracy against nationalist fascism. In reality, it was a violent mass-collectivist revolution put down by Spanish moderates and conservatives.
The Principled Fight
Those on the right would do well to look to Edmund Burke as a common example in discerning the principles at stake in our present struggle, as well as the character and conduct needed to win.
Betting Against a Blue Wave
Democrats are likely to face insurmountable partisan, demographic, and policy challenges during the final weeks of midterm election campaigning.

After Dobbs, the many-headed ruling class is licking its wounds … and itching for a rematch. The upcoming midterm election will measure the resistance to the Court's attempt to return to America's constitutional origins.
Warren Harding and FDR

Revolt Against the Rainbow RINOs
The recent clash between the Texas Republican Party and the Republican National Committee exposes the growing divide between grassroots conservatism and the establishment GOP, especially with regard to the LGBT agenda.
The overruling of Roe is the greatest triumph to date of the conservative legal movement. The Court had no business inventing a constitutional right to abortion.

Despite their Communist past and present, Russia and China are demonstrably more conservative in many ways than present-day, self-hating America.

America’s ‘Female Future’ Has Open Borders
Females dominate U.S. immigration policymaking, media, and legal positions. The gender imbalance is liberalizing the country’s immigration laws.
Revolt of the Fatherless
The crash of Western civilization can be traced to the state’s surgical removal of the father’s authority and to the feminized blind rebellion that has followed.
Come Home, America
The proxy war in Ukraine is a globalist creation that has little to do with American interests. Americans should not emotionally invest in a fight that is not their own, but focus on more important matters at their own borders.

War Without End, Amen
I have often complained that the self-styled progressive of our time never tells us where he wants to go. Progress implies a destination, and rest—sweet and blessed rest—once you have arrived.

Equality’s Third Wave
Equality is a fussy concept.
