No, "Whiteness" is Not Under Attack

Is the President a Racist?

Top Down: Why Democrats Aren't Winning
In the aftermath of the latest of this year's string of special elections, the Monday-morning-quarterbacking is, predictably, rolling of every opinionator's tongue.  And it's all over the place. Why are Democrat candidates losing?  Is it money?  Is it energ...

Broken: What James Comey taught us about us
If you watch television, any television, pretty much the only thing that has happened this week appears to be the congressional testimony of ex-FBI Director James Comey.  Depending on your political leanings, it was either a scathing indictment or a tempest...
