John Adams' Reminiscences of the First Independence Day

-By Warner Todd Huston John Adams was one of the truly indispensable men among our founding fathers. He was the man that wrote one of the first fully written out Constitutions in human history when he wrote the Constitution of Massachusetts. He wrote a seminal book on government that helped inform the founders of our... Read more »

Remembering D-Day With Ike and Reagan

-By Paul Kengor For me, Memorial Day happens twice within a week. The first, the official holiday at the end of May, is quickly reinforced a week later, every June 6: D-Day. Of all the wartime anniversaries, none strike me quite like D-Day — the invasion of Normandy, the liberation of France, the final push... Read more »

Evil Confederate, German, Nazi, Racists Invades Mind of The Atlantic Writer

-By Warner Todd Huston The Atlantic’s Yoni Appelbaum has a troubled little mind. He seems to be an excitable sort, too. I say this because during this 150th anniversary of the American Civil War he strangely sees evil Confederate, German, Nazi, racists at Civil War events. He might want to see a therapist about this.... Read more »

L.A. Times Tim Rutten, Historical Idiot

-By Warner Todd Huston Tim Rutten is a left-wing, hack writer from L.A. He is always good for contemporary left wing trope but the other day we discovered that he is also good for the sort of uninformed blathering that leftists of his ilk pretend is American history. Chiefly that of America’s religious history and... Read more »

Green Policies a Substitute For Anti-Capitalist, Anti-American Ideas

-By Warner Todd Huston Those anti-capitalist college professor types that used to sneer at America and supported the murderous antics of the Soviets had for a short time after the fall of the U.S.S.R. no place in which to invest their anti-American ideals. However, it is clear that they have found a new home: greenism.... Read more »

Wash Post's Cohen: GOP Should Compromise... Like They Did With Slavery?

-By Warner Todd Huston Richard Cohen is what passes for an opinion editorialist in the Washington Post — not a learned one, just a bloviating one. Cohen’s latest, “The Myth of American Exceptionalism,” is at the same time as self-loathing as it is historically stupid. Not only does this nonsense Cohen ladled out upon us... Read more »

Federalist Papers Identified How Democrats Would Destroy Us

-By Warner Todd Huston Our fourth president, James Madison, has been called the father of the Constitution for not inconsiderable reasons. Madison was highly educated, widely read, and well thought of. He was also a prescient man. Madison was so prescient that in February of 1788 he was able to describe the precise reasons why...

Was Lincoln REALLY a Secret Atheist?

-By Warner Todd Huston Here we go again. This sort of nonsense that passes for journalism rehashing our history, and badly at that, always comes up when there’s some sort of anniversary in the offing. This time it is the 150th anniversary of the Civil War which gave Discovery News an excuse to cast Lincoln... Read more »

Complete History Of The Soviet Union, Arranged To The Melody Of Tetris

Communists are poopie heads.

New Book Drags Abe Lincoln's Race Ideas Back Up

-By Warner Todd Huston No president’s views of race relations have elicited more spirited conversation than Abe Lincoln’s and his complex views are again the subject of conjecture. A new book about Lincoln’s ideas on sending America’s negro population to another country, a policy called “colonization,” has been penned by a researcher at George Mason... Read more »
