Trump Is Obama’s Legacy

When a party loses a presidential election, especially one as eminently winnable as this, the primary blame has to go to the candidate. Hillary Clinton was a deeply flawed, uncharismatic, scandal-plagued candidate who ran a lackluster, uninspiring campaign where her main strategy was simply to run out the clock. After this, Democrats are going to […]

Politics Without Principles

I have already given some suggestions for how to vote (or possibly why not to vote) in this rotten political year. I can’t say I have any really great alternatives to offer. Fortunately, it will all be over by tomorrow night and we can focus on what comes next and how to rebuild from the […]

A Libertarian Icon’s Descent Into Racist Pseudoscience

Editor’s Note: I decided to publish the piece below for two personal reasons. One is that I think I may have appeared as a guest on one of Stefan Molyneux’s podcasts some years ago (during his libertarian phase). So I wanted to alert readers to his ideological transmogrification. The second reason is that I want […]

Soviet Valley

Oh no, we’re not going to do this again, are we? Two years ago, Mozilla (creator of the Firefox browser) forced out its co-founder and new CEO, Brendan Eich, after it was revealed that he once gave $1,000 to an advocacy group that opposed gay marriage. Now for some reason The Daily Beast decided it […]

The Disqualification Campaign

As the 2016 presidential election enters the home stretch, it is reaching its final form: a contest over which candidate is more fully disqualified. Yesterday, Hillary Clinton’s physical collapse after a September 11 commemoration was caught on video, giving credence to concerns about her health.

The Liberal Condescension Hall of Fame

I try not to pay too much attention to Lena Dunham, because she’s kind of the highfalutin’ equivalent of someone who is famous for being famous—by which I mean that she has a television show that a lot of middlebrow intellectuals talk about, but which not many people actually watch. Odell Beckham, Jr., a young […]

Sheriff Clarke Is Right About the War on Cops

Nearly eight years after the historic election of Barack Obama as America’s first black president, and we can see the disappointing result: a small-scale race war in America’s cities. That it’s a war was heralded by Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, who denounced the recent attacks in Dallas and Baton Rouge as “anarchy” in his […]

The Aryan Nation Candidate

So this just happened, and to anyone who has been following Donald Trump’s campaign, it’s not a really big surprise: Donald Trump tweeted out a graphic accusing Hillary Clinton of corruption—no big stretch there—with a prominently placed Star of David over a background of money. The implication, obviously, is that she’s in the pocket of […]

The Worst Tweet of the Year (So Far)

When I heard about the toddler pulled into a lake at Disney World by an alligator, my first reaction was total sympathy for his poor grieving parents. Parenthood is a continual process of worrying that some momentary lapse in judgment or attention on your part—as a Midwesterner, I can assure you that people from Nebraska […]

White Sheets and Red Golf Caps

Hey, lefties, we finally found your racists for you. For as long as I can remember, people like me—by which I mean advocates of capitalism and free markets and freedom of speech—have been accused by the left of being secret racists who pine for the gold old days of the antebellum South. Tiresome stuff like […]
