    Jihad on the Western Front

    It’s a Charlie Hebdo world—a place where “free speech” means the freedom to depict the Pope in drag with the caption “Ready for anything in order to win some clients?”

    You knew Jeb Bush was going to run for president; after all, assuming the worst is really the essence of conservatism. And, sure enough, he’s “actively exploring the possibility”—a half-measure that prefigures the weakness and tepidity of another Bush presidency.

    Living With Foreigners

    My grandfather, Nicola Raimondo, came from a little town called Torre di Ruggiero, at the tip of the Italian boot. It was a poor place then, and it looks to be even poorer today, from what I can tell, with half the place for sale and the other half in ruins.

    The Golden State’s Lavender Jacobins

    You knew it would come to this. So did I. And yet one is still surprised by the sheer boldness of it all.

    My Conversation With Alex Jones

    I always had the general impression that radio shock-jock Alex Jones was a huckster—basically an entertainer, as opposed to a serious person.

    The War of Wars

    I have lost the battle with my garden, the only war I care about these days. The Drought (yes, I mean to capitalize it, to personify it as if it were an angry god) has scorched the yard, and there is no such thing as victory in the face of such an enemy—only the hope of a standoff.

    Foreigners No More

    They are coming: on trains, on buses, on foot, all the way from Central America, where they meet up with smugglers who take them across our nonexistent border.

    Neocon Nightmare

    I have a recurring nightmare in which the war criminals who lied us into Iraq reappear to mock the hundreds of thousands they murdered in cold blood, repeating the same lies, the same rationalizations, the same mindless slogans that lured us into that hellhole to begin with.

    Is There Hope?

    Think of what we’re trying to do: upend the biggest, deadliest, most intractable apparatus of power this world has ever seen. The sheer scope of the Leviathan State is so daunting that any patriot who seeks to take it on is immediately faced with the enormity of his task—and that is sure to overwhelm even the most determined.

    Stalking the Bear

    Washington desperately needed a new enemy, so the timing of Putin’s bloodless “invasion” of Crimea was just right.

    The World Upside Down

    The hysterics are deafening: The “invasion” of Crimea has the pundits in an uproar.

    Why Has the Land Turned on Me?

    I have showered more love on this old 1940’s farmhouse than on any person living. Certainly, I’ve spent more money on it than I care to count. But more than the house itself—an undistinguished structure made interesting only by my renovation—it’s the land I fell in love with.

    The Russians Are Coming!

    When the Berlin Wall fell, and the Soviet Union imploded shortly afterward, the world breathed a sigh of relief—except in the faculty lounges of our more exclusive universities, the last bastion of Marxism in the developed world. But these hothouse exotics weren’t the only losers.

    Taking Action

    “I don’t just renovate,” says Nicole Curtis, the 36-year-old star of Rehab Addict. “I restore old houses to their former glory.” She’s a willowy blonde with the body of a pinup model and the determination of a drill sergeant—and she can wield a nail gun as well as any man, if not better.

    No Peeking

    I promised myself I’d stay out of local politics once I moved up here to Sonoma County, California, but this story is too good to pass up.

    An Unexpected Sea Change

    One minute we were just waiting for the bombs to drop on Syria. The next we were listening to the President tell us why it was a good idea—but never mind!

    It’s Always World War II

    They call it the “Good War,” I suppose, in order to differentiate it from all the really bad wars we’ve been fighting—and losing—lately: Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, and all the future conflicts our political class has up its collective sleeve.

    The Drones of Mordor

    It’s like something out of The Lord of the Rings: a vast empire ruled by a king known as “B’arack”—an Orcish name if ever there was one—sends out its mechanical murderers to wreak destruction far and wide.

    Snooping Gets Personal

    Washington is reeling from revelations that the NSA is turning the country into a virtual Panopticon. Americans are now learning that all our phone calls are turned over to the feds, who also have their tentacles in the servers of the major internet providers.

    Lynchings and Litmus Tests

    When it comes to race, life in America resembles nothing so much as a reenactment of Shirley Jackson’s short story “The Lottery.” That story, you’ll recall, depicted a town that seemed normal—except that, once every year, there would be a lottery, and if you picked the one black stone among so many white ones, the townsfolk proceeded to stone you to death.
