We are living through a national trauma. The United States has jettisoned the rule of law and ceased functioning as a republic. Battle lines have been drawn. Progressives are moving quickly to cement their transformation of the country’s beliefs, attitudes, values, social structures, economic models, and government organizations. Patriotic Americans are waking up to recognize that conservatism failed to conserve much of anything. Progressives...
J. Robert Smith, American Thinker
No one denies that Americans are increasingly divided. There are only three choices: 1) total domination of one side over the other; 2) violent disunion; and 3) renewed federalism on a scale that is hard for us to imagine right now. Is this third option impossible? Perhaps, but only as impossible as the other two would be terrible in their effects. Would that not be the best way to prevent a cold civil war becoming hot?
Glenn Ellmers, American Mind
How should Americans--those citizens truly committed to the American ideals--understand the times in regard to the ends they seak and the best means of achieving those ends? Does the American constitutional order contain within it sufficient means of dissenting from it? It is time to rediscover the muscular means of dissent provided in the Constitution as the founders themselves understood it...

Glenn Ellmers’ essay “Too Much of a Unity” asks: What should be done now that Trump has lost and many states cannot be trusted to hold legitimate elections? More than attempting to formulate a positive plan, Ellmers is trying to show that the Claremont position is adaptable to a time when the “dissident right” has immense potential, as well as some of the strongest critiques of the present regime.

Richard Reinsch, American Mind
Glenn Ellmers’ essay “Too Much of a Unity” aims to navigate us through our present discontents by focusing our thinking on the core ideas and principles of the America Founding. The essay rigorously engages the scholarship of his mentor, Harry Jaffa, rooting Ellmers argument in the Aristotelian and natural rights purposes of American constitutionalism. Here we obtain a grasp of how our present constitutional order stacks up to...

Frances McDormand was this year’s winner of the Best Actress Oscar. She also won in 2018, at which time she showed up on my radar screen because she abused her stardom by engaging in political rhetoric. McDormand argued that both cast and crew in all movies ought to be composed of at least 50 percent women and minorities. Her liberal outburst seemed far-fetched then but three years later, thanks to the ascendency of identity...
Janet Mefferd Today
Our nation's internal Cold War is heating up, and the boiling point may arrive before we know it. Is there a constitutional path forward for patriots to save America from a totalitarian future? Jim Hanson joins me to discuss it and his book, "Winning the Second Civil War: Without Firing a Shot." Plus: What should we make of the claims that COVID-19 herd immunity is impossible, even as the tyranny over ...
The Nick and Joe Show
Nick and Joe discuss western alienation in Canada and the general deterioration of western values and culture leading to the conclusion that we are currently fighting a "cold" civil war in the West.
