This article is complete dreck. It is a Leftist fantasy penned for the consumption of social justice warrior porn. If what this article suggests has any credence at all, what happened in Philadelphia recently would never have happened. Those white supremacists would never have been run out of...

“The measure passed the House in the last Congress but stalled in the GOP-controlled Senate.”
Personally, I'm not a fan of statues of anyone. I don't think anyone is perfect enough to be put on a pedestal, no pun intended. That said, I can understand why some would have a problem with some of the statues in Statuary Hall. Even so, I think removing them would be a mistake. To understand...

Every time I see something like this I have a hard time believing it is actually happening. It strikes me in the same manner that someone claiming storing food in a sewer is a good thing to do. It is as if we are sprinting toward a society totally devoid of and emphatically not based on truth....

“Opinion: Before we get into a crisis - or a war - over Taiwan, US policymakers and military leaders need to address some hard, cold realities.”
I think Mr. Davis is taking the path of Chamberlain here. I'm hardly the expert he is but it isn't difficult, especially for one who's spent 20 years in the military, to understand his reasoning. The problems he outlines are easily understood and realistic. However, it seems equally clear to...
