    Turkey Purge

    Democracy isn’t freedom—and in today’s Turkey some people realize that, as amazing as that may seem. Not ordinary folks, but the mid-level officers of the Turkish army, who have been watching with a jaundiced eye the steady Islamization of their country by an elected leader.

    Abridging Omar

    Immigration and Ideology

    It was the first meeting of The John Randolph Club, held somewhere in the wilds of Texas. I was there at the urging of Murray Rothbard, who was enthusiastic about this gathering of libertarians and paleoconservatives in the wake of the Cold War’s end.

    The Right Reborn

    A Paleo Moment

    While it looks like the much-touted Libertarian Moment has passed—if it was ever here to begin with—we can say with some degree of certainty that the Paleoconservative Moment has arrived.

    Conservative Origins

    The year was 1964. I was 13 years old. Sitting in the family room of my parents’ home in Yorktown Heights, New York, with the TV on, I picked up the envelope that had arrived in the mail that day.

    In Clear Violation

    This anti-Trump issue of National Review is, in effect, a campaign pamphlet directed against a political candidate—indeed, the cover proclaims “Against Trump”—and, as such, is in clear violation of IRS statutes regulating nonprofit organizations.

    Neocons in a Lather

    With every Trumpian surge in the polls, Trump was said to have peaked. Yet he’s defied the conventional wisdom and is clearly enjoying every minute of his unbroken ascent.

    Contain the Caliphate

    The Paris attacks have been the occasion for a renewed bout of warmongering by all the usual suspects: the neoconservatives, who take advantage of any pretext to begin the bloodletting.

    Neocon Armageddon!

    That old agitator Mahatma Gandhi certainly knew his chops, and one of his aphorisms surely has resonance when we contemplate the Trump phenomenon: “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”

    Who Hates Trump?

    Politics is all about hatred. Never mind who you’re voting for: It’s who you’re voting against that really counts. And that’s why any disagreement I may have with Donald Trump’s actual policies is completely irrelevant.

    Wrecking Ball

    If The Donald’s road to the White House is blocked—either by the Republican elites or by his own tendency to go too far—and he returns to TV land, he’ll have a hard time topping this one.

    We’ve Only Just Begun

    The ink on the Supreme Court decision in Obergefell v. Hodges was barely dry before a vicious assault on organized religion in this country was launched, a multipronged offensive with the clear intention of marginalizing Christians and banishing them from the public square.

    A Bubbling Crude

    I turn to Garet Garrett when I’m in an elegiac mood, and surely these days my moods rival his in their darkness. He annoyed his fellow libertarian, the novelist and ideologue Rose Wilder Lane, to no end with what she called his “keening” note of pessimism, which mourned “a world forever lost.”
