As looting and rioting took place in cities across the country during the past several weeks, networks in the “mainstream media” went to great lengths to downplay the violence that was part of what happened.

No Pardon for Partisan Hypocrisy

June 6th, 2018 11:16 PM
Quick, grab the smelling salts and clear the fainting couches. President Trump's pardon of conservative author Dinesh D'Souza last week violently triggered Beltway media elites. It's peanut butter, weed pollen, gluten, manspreading, Chick-fil-A, the national anthem, and Kryptonite all rolled into one giant political allergen.

Dinesh D’Souza’s new movie was finally noticed in The New York Times Friday – on the front page.

Column | America: Imagine the World Without Her

July 8th, 2014 9:15 PM
Do we conservatives really mean it when we say that we need to promote our ideas in the popular culture through books, movies and other media? If so, we need to support people like Dinesh D'Souza and his latest movie and book, "America: Imagine the World Without Her." I saw the movie, and I loved it.
