Immigration from Russia has not received much attention compared to the much larger flow of immigrants from South of the Rio Grande, but that can tell us much about the dangers of liberal immigration policies and a poorly policed border.

Listening to Ta-Nehisi Coates While White is an embarrassingly mushy public mash note from New York Times columnist David Brooks to modern Americas newest race huckster.

Maybe Greek Prime Minister Alexei Tsipras deserves some sort of honorary Margaret Thatcher Free Market Economics Prize.

The Supreme Court has just agreed to reconsider the constitutionality of racial preferences in university admissions (although the advocates of these preferences prefer the seemingly more uplifting term affirmative action.)

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and his party Syriza have just screwed the pooch, and royally so.

Well, it finally happened, the U.S. Supreme Court in its Obergefell v Hodges decision has just ruled that gay people have a constitutional right to get married. Does this somehow signal the end of Western Civilization and the American Way? And should we follow the advice of some prominent conservatives and simply refuse to accept the power of the Supreme Court to decide this question?
