Killing John Wayne: Why the Left Wanted for the Boston Bomber to be White

posted by Jack Kerwick

The alleged culprits behind the Boston Marathon bombing have been found.  Yet all along, leftist have wanted for nothing other than for it to be revealed that white men are responsible for the attack. Only the self-delusional and the deceptive, […]

posted by Jack Kerwick

On Tuesday, April 9th, a man with a knife went on a rampage at Lone Star College near Houston, Texas. Fourteen people were stabbed. On Wednesday, April 10th, USA Today covered the attack, reassuring readers that knife attacks like these […]

Revisiting Conservative Principles: A Look at Russell Kirk

posted by Jack Kerwick

The name of “Russell Kirk” is heard seldom, if ever, in conservative circles today.  This is tragic, and maybe even a bit scandalous, for as William F. Buckley—a person whose name is well known—once said, it “is inconceivable even to […]

The Academic, The Journalist, and Free Speech

posted by Jack Kerwick

No one waxes more indignantly over perceived infringements of their freedom of speech than media personalities and academics. My thesis: Media figures and academics, taken as media figures and academics, may not have a right to speak as they do […]

If I Am a Moral Relativist, So is God
Evidently, I am a moral relativist. In a recent article, I applauded a colleague for adapting to our school stage a play—Songs for a New World.  This play, I contended, marked a quite radical departure from the standard Politically Correct line insofar as it resoundingly affirmed “the morali

Pope Francis: As Clever a Politician as They Come
Much to the disappointment of this Catholic, Pope Francis balked on a golden opportunity to convey to the world just how fundamentally, how vehemently, the vision of the Church differs from that of President Obama when the two met a couple of weeks back. Why?  Can it be that Francis is the fello

Jeb Bush: Disaster for the GOP
So, the word is that the fat cat GOP donors are eyeing up Jeb Bush as a presidential candidate for 2016. If there’s any truth to this—and, tragically, it appears that there most certainly is—then there is but one conclusion left for any remotely sober person to draw: The Republican Party
