0-4 and an About-Face: Democrats Suddenly Believe Ossoff No Longer Matters

Likely writing in response to this study, which finds that only 3.8 percent of the public falls into the category, Emily Ekins surveys a range of studies that have found a larger percentage. Most put them in the 10-20 percent range, which makes them too large a group to be ignored. How Many Libertarians Are There?

Two Arguments on Immigration

FBI Report on Alexandria Quietly Debunks the Gun-Controllers' Talking Points

The FBI has published a brief report on the shooting in Alexandria. It is devastating to the idea that the gun-control measures presently coveted by the Democratic party would have done something to prevent the attack. Over the past two decades, Democrats have focused on three major proposals for reform. Show More Summary

Hard Choices, Hard Lives

When people under dictatorship decide to go dissident, they make a choice with huge consequences. (Almost invariably, they will tell you they did not “decide” to go dissident; they could simply do no other.) They set off a chain of events for themselves, and for their family. Gao Zhisheng did this. Show More Summary

A Reality Check about What Handel’s Win Means

Karen Handel, the Republican, won. Who among us can contain his excitement? It’s also a win for Donald Trump for one simple and obvious reason: because the alternative would have been so much worse for him. If Handel had lost, it would have hardened the media narrative that Republicans are fleeing the president (note: I said narrative, not fiction. Show More Summary
