PJ Media’s Bill Whittle outlines his top five conservative principles in the latest edition of Afterburner.

Whittle articulates the nexus of culture, politics, and American values succinctly on a regular basis. Seeing as Republicans just took control of the Senate, it’s a good time to reflect on what we believe, why we believe...

William F Buckley Jr

I enjoy revisiting modern Conservative classics. William F. Buckley, Jr. is a staple in that repertoire. Much like I enjoy reflecting on scripture or other mantras, I enjoy mulling the thoughts and words of leaders who forged the path of Conservatism.

Early last week I was flipping through a few old books, one...

Over the past few years, social conservatives have found their lifestyles (and in some cases, their livelihoods) under full assault by a very vocal, activist minority in the left. Progressive ire directed at the pro-life, pro-family, etc. crowd is nothing new, but with the advent of platforms like Twitter and Facebook,...

As Americans are debating over how to react to the situation in Syria, there have been some fascinating developments elsewhere in the world well worth noting.

For example, one of Scandinavia’s most nanny-state governments has had an election that tilted their state dramatically rightward:

Introspection and reevaluation — and even a bit of circular firing squad — are necessary after an electoral loss.

But I’m not buying the end of conservatism argument immediately being peddled by pro-Obama media types.  It’s just a variation on Operation Demoralize.

Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day has proven something I’ve noticed before.

Conservatives are very good at buycotts, but very bad at boycotts.

There have been attempts by some conservative and religious groups to boycott various businesses over political issues. But I can’t think of one, at least not recently, that has caught on.
