January 29
, 2016

Over the past week, Rush Limbaugh dissected the advice that Samuel Francis gave to Pat Buchanan in 1996 and Sam's perceptive forecasting that a populist candidate — such as we see in Donald Trump — would emerge on the political scene. Below is an article by Pat Buchanan discussing this issue.

WASHINGTON, D.C. —The lights are burning late in Davos tonight.

At the World Economic Forum, keynoter Joe Biden warned global elites that the unraveling of the middle class in America and Europe has provided "fertile terrain for reactionary politicians, demagogues peddling xenophobia, anti-immigration, nationalist, isolationist views."

None Dare Call It “Killing”
a classic by Joe Sobran
January 22
, 2016

[Classic: 1/25/2001] — Our new president has angered feminists, liberal editorialists, “civil libertarians,” and other abortion advocates by cutting off federal aid to groups that promote abortion abroad. The Washington Post says his act was not “bipartisan,” but “divisive,” with “ugly” consequences.

January 14
, 2016

[Classic: April 2003] — The pro-war movement reminds me of the pro-abortion movement. It isn’t just that both favor killing, important as that is; it’s that both are informed by fanatical moral arrogance.

December 18
, 2015

Our Chesterton
by Joe Sobran
December 10
, 2015

[Classic: 2/19/2002] — In 1961 a young writer named Garry Wills published his first book, an excellent study of the works of G.K. Chesterton. It was soon out of print and hard to find. I luckily came across it in a used book store. Now, I am happy to say, it has finally been reissued in paperback.

by Joe Sobran
December 3
, 2015

[Classic: 5/13/1999] — The Littleton murders are still provoking “solutions” for the problem of youths who choose to shoot their classmates. The usual method of these “solutions” is to imagine how this particular horror could have been prevented, and then to generalize the answer into some sort of national law or social program. More gun control, better counseling, spotting “early warning signals,” and so forth.
