Evan McMullin: From Never Trump to Never Gillespie


Evan McMullin must be looking to expand his brand.  Since his #NeverTrump shtick failed to impress Jeff Zucker enough for MSNBC to give him a show, it looks as if the erstwhile conscience of conservatism has moved on to attempted sabotage against other Republicans.  Or, as McMullin himself tells it: [email protected] was one of the good guys, but now he peddles fear and white nationalism. It’s...

The Adoption Tax Credit Should Be Non-Negotiable


The Republican Party claims it believes in dynamic scoring of tax cuts and various budgetary policies. Here is a fact.

Devon Kelley, the Texas shooter, beat up his wife, cracked his son's skull, and got let out of military jail after a year.

But the sailor who took pictures on a submarine is in jail for a year.

Military justice does not seem very just.

Not Good: Republican & Christian Support for Death Penalty is Falling


A recent op-ed in the Christian Post hailed the increasing number of Republican lawmakers who are sponsoring measures around the country to repeal the death penalty for convicted murderers and serial killers.  This has been accompanied, perhaps unsurprisingly, with an increase in the number of evangelical Christians who support ending capital punishment for capital crimes. I am not among their...
