The Metaphysics of the Bathroom
by Robert R. Reilly
June 22
, 2016

Making Gay Okay WASHINGTON, D.C. — Tempers are running high over the transgender bathroom debate. Who could have imagined a few years ago that we would need to discuss the appropriate destination for the body’s evacuative functions according to gender, or that the controversy would be addressed in terms of justice and human rights instead of common sense?

How, exactly, could this have come about? The Encyclopedia of Surgery claims that “the number of gender reassignment procedures conducted in the United States each year is estimated at between 100 and 500.” Though no doubt there are more self-identified transgenders who do not have surgery, the numbers remain socially insignificant.

Is There Hope?
by Robert L. Hale
June 22
, 2016

MINOT, ND — One thing is certain — the extent of people’s capacity for ignorance and hypersensitivity cannot be underestimated.

A harsh statement? I know. As one among billions on earth, I would like to offer my advice for the billions (I hope) of normal, rational, thoughtful, secure, and balanced humans who must live among the ignorant and hypersensitive.

When Being Nice Is Stupid

MINOT, ND — What am I missing? Former Vice Presidential candidate and current House Speaker Paul Ryan ridiculed the "ugliness and divisiveness in American politics." To what ugliness and divisiveness does the Speaker refer?

Hillary Rejects ‘America First’
by Patrick J. Buchanan
June 15
, 2016

“Clinton to Paint Trump as a Risk to World Order.”

Thus did page one of Thursday’s New York Times tee up Hillary Clinton's big San Diego speech on foreign policy.

The Times promoted the speech as “scorching,” a “sweeping and fearsome portrayal of Mr. Trump, one that the Clinton campaign will deliver like a drumbeat to voters in the coming months.”

What is happening here?

Envy and the Road to Ruin
by Robert Knight
June 14
, 2016

Joseph Sobran drew an important distinction that might help explain the bitterness with which the legions of the left pursue their redistributionist agenda:

“Envy is now widely confused with covetousness. But to covet another's good is to want to possess it yourself; to envy it is to seek the darker satisfaction of destroying his happiness in it.”

The Enduring Clinton Soap Opera: Unsettled
Questions about Vince Foster's Death

by Wes Vernon
June 14
, 2016

For 24 years, from 1992 and still going on in 2016, the Clintons have been caught up in scandal after scandal. The script calls for Bill and Hillary to "step in it" with everything from allegations of bribery, lying under oath, slipshod security, the meaning of "is," suspicious deaths, credible accusations of rape, Oval Office intern romps, assault-style gropes - with Hillary often covering for Bill.

The Donald and The La Raza Judge
by Patrick J. Buchanan
9, 2016

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Before the lynching of The Donald proceeds, what exactly was it he said about that Hispanic judge?

Stated succinctly, Donald Trump said U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who is presiding over a class-action suit against Trump University, is sticking it to him. And the judge’s bias is likely rooted in the fact that he is of Mexican descent.

Can there be any defense of a statement so horrific? Read More

Educating for Damnation
by Joe Sobran
June 02
, 2016

[Wanderer classic: 08/07/2003] — According to Secretary of Education Ron Paige, "The president and I believe that education is a civil right [and that] there should be equal access for all, not just the privileged few." This is the sort of thing that makes me despair of the Bush administration, especially when nominal conservatives hail it as conservative.

Sodomites All
by Joe Sobran
May 26
, 2016

[Publisher's Note]: Massachusetts was the first state to allow so-called same-sex “marriage.” Here is a classic Joe Sobran column written in 2003 discussing marriage, divorce, contraception, sin, rationalization, perversion — and the stellar example of his stepfather.

[Classic: 11/27/2003] — The supreme court of Massachusetts has ordered the state’s legislature, within 180 days, to revise the law to accommodate same-sex “marriage.” Judicial arrogance is nothing new, but this takes the cake. The court isn’t even pretending that it’s merely “interpreting” the law; it’s demanding that elected officials legislate a perversion of the ancient and universal understanding of the most basic social institution in the world.

Conservatives, Liberals, and Trump
by Robert Hale

, 2016

MINOT, ND — Conservatism and liberalism are two ideologies, both vying to destroy the traditional values that have made America great. Together they are succeeding amazingly well.
