Middlebury, Groupthink, and Riots

Nebraska Energy Observer by NEO Thomas Sowell had a few things to say the other day about the fracas at Middlebury College. As always, it is very worth listening to. Where have all these shocked people been all these years? What happened at Middlebury College has been happening for ...

Seriously but not Literally

Nebraska Energy Observer by NEO I again quoted whoever it was that said we take Donald Trump seriously but not literally again last evening. It is true, we do, we voted for him because he looks to us like a real outsider, who is his own man, not an ...

Explaining America to Millennials

“You are lost to history” – George Orwell, 1984 Larry Arnn, the president of Hillsdale College, is one of the most influential conservatives in America. Moreover, he does more than just talk about it, which also makes him one of the most unique conservatives in America. A doer. And what ...

About this new Cabinet

Nebraska Energy Observer by NEO A bit more about Trump’s cabinet, and why I too, think it very exceptional. From Stephen Hayward I tweeted out a few days ago that so far, President-elect Donald Trump’s senior level and cabinet picks are to the right of Ronald Reagan in 1981, ...

Right and Alt-Right

We really can’t begin to understand this phenomenon of alt-right, until we understand the origins of “the right”. The linkage of understanding is just one term; the Left, as being the place from which all true understanding begins, and began, I have a strong prejudice against being called “Right” simply because it was a name ...

Trump will bring return to rule of law and economic growth | TheHill

Hillary Clinton has no respect the rule of law, religious liberty, freedom of speech, etc.  She would further obliterate the Bill of Rights with her appointments to the judiciary reflecting as much. Not only do we need to stop the bleeding but we must regain the liberties lost since ...

Rush Limbaugh and the end of the Ancien Regime in America

  The “Ancien Regime’ was the name given to the French dynasties from the 15th Century until the monarchy was thrown down by the French Revolution in 1787. It was a bloody and cruel affair, producing a Bonaparte instead of democratic institutions, which the French don’t seem to have grasped wholly ...

Donald Trump and the People’s Existential Threat

This is an update on a theme I raised in February 2016, “Donald Trump and the People” as I think the people see their existential threat more clearly now than they did seven months ago. In that article I tried to divide the political universe into two components, the roughly ...

Putting the #NeverTrump Syndrome on the Couch

  On closer inspection, it appears that NeverTrumpism is more than just a vanity built on elitism and status protection. It’s not unlike that choice between comfort and gut-check with My Generation, when our best and brightest came to its crossroads (Vietnam) and the best went one way while, sadly, too many of our brightest ...

More War

  The Sun Also Rises by Bugs You’d think that the President of the United States would by definition be a nationalist. Nation is in the title of the job description. Yet mainstream conservatives have drifted away from nationalism and towards globalism. The death of conservatism Because, as I ...

Of Nationalist Populism and Labels

NATIONALIST POPULISM IS NOT NATIONAL SOCIALISM, NOR IS IT COMMUNISM Well that’s what they’re calling the Trump phenomenon now – “nationalist populism”, and no, a fair number of them don’t mean it in a good way. You are all well aware that the “wahr”, as our good friend Vassar ...
