When Trial Lawyers, Radical Environmentalists, and Dictators Unite
In response to a baseless shakedown by an alliance of sleazy trial lawyers, radical environmental groups, and anti-American foreign interests, Chevron’s vice president of public affairs, Stephen Green, took to RealClear Markets to fight back.

Dave Weigel and the Mystery of the 8-Year-Old Transgendered Kid
The caper started innocently enough. Listicle site and national joke Buzzfeed posted an article purporting to display an “adorable” note written by an 8-year-old who is allegedly transgender.

Roger Ailes Confronts the Evil While the Also Rans Cower in Fear
It is times like this that I am very proud of Fox News, where I am a political contributor.

Rand Paul and Pandering to the Paranoid
Part of the problem with the Internet age is that it’s difficult to have anything approaching a nuanced discussion anymore. This is especially true when virtually everyone, regardless of their intellect, expertise, or judgment, has access to a repository of perfectly reasonable-sounding people who will say anything. If you type “are vaccines safe” into your preferred Internet search engine, you will find that there are | Read More »
