There were many predictions of violent protests at the Republican National Convention, in light of a series of violent anti-Trump protests around the country.

In Chicago, you will recall, protests organized by MoveOn.org and others caused Trump to cancel his appearance at a major university arena.

It makes perfect sense that Bernie Sanders is the favored candidate of the Occupy Wall Street movement. His anti-capitalism rhetoric fits perfectly with the group’s ideology.

It’s therefore hardly a surprise to learn that many of his supporters are planning to use Occupy style tactics to protest Hillary’s nomination at the Democratic...

One of the most difficult things in politics is to defend the rights of politicians you otherwise might not want to defend.

One of those cases was the defense of Sarah Palin against a vicious left-wing smear machine that targeted even her youngest child, who was mocked not only for having Down Syndrome but for...

The Ferguson protesters have proven themselves to be destructive, violent, and completely uninterested in anything having to do with “justice.” Not only are they okay with this assessment—they’re completely proud of it.

In fact, they’re beginning to look an awful lot like another “justice movement” we got to know quite well a...
