"Russian hacking" is the Left/Never-Trumpers' explanation for Donald Trump's election.

In their furrowed-brow-telling, they have recently discovered something called "Russian interference" and "Russian influence." Don't ask where so many of them have been all of our lives, because they've spent about the past century telling us there was no such thing.

That was then. Today, they insist that this newfound "Russian interference" and "Russian influence" secretly drove nearly 63 million American deplorables to reach for that GOP lever again and again to vote for Donald Trump, not Hillary Clinton.

Let me squeeze in a little historical context. The late, great Sen. Joseph McCarthy himself was not wont to make such sweeping, conspiratorial charges without offering well-documented evidence, as we might see in his remarkable peroration on the still strange and perplexing career of George C. Marshall (pdf here; get over the Birch imprint; this is a reissue of the original 1952 Devin-Adair book publication).

Ever wonder why the UN is a perennial force for Evil and the anti-American way?

It was the brainchild of Soviet agents. 

No kidding. So much of our history has been stolen from us that I doubt even those currently and publicly bristling at the UN's latest depredations against Israel (still holding the front line of the Western front) from Donald Trump to Charles Krauthammer, have any knowledge of this elementary fact. Nonetheless, the hidden/forgotten/suppressed record...

In our weekly radio chat, Frank Gaffney and I discuss two recent posts: "Somersaulting in Synchronism" and "X-Mas for Truth-Seekers," which is about the recent Arpaio Cold Case Posse presser on the Obama birth certificate. 

These topics make an apt duo, both being about the lengths to which free people go to enslave themselves to Party and/or party discipline: in the former case, the press and political class puling out the stops to undermine Trump; in the latter, the press and political class...

In a world where journalism was about breaking news and not preserving the information vaccum, the da-da-esque "Russian hacking" mantra would be a joke around any newsroom -- not received and hallowed orthodoxy to the exclusion of any possibly emerging facts, testimonies, logic, historical context, or even conjecture that might cause a sentient being to doubt it.

In such a healthier world, where journalism was about exposing tyrants, crooks and conspiracies, the toxic tangle of overlapping links and financial connections between John Podesta, the Center for American Progress (the think tank he led), and Russian state piggy banks would not remain for months near-exclusive to investigative journalist Peter Schweizer.

Here is a video of a new speech I unveiled at a July 13 symposium on "American Strategy: The Way Forward," sponsored by the Institute for the Study of Strategy and Politics. The speech is titled, "`America First' in America, 1940-2016."

I have one correction: In listing the widely variious Americans who participated in the America First Committee priot to World War II, I mention William Henry Regnery as the eventual founder of Regnery Books. The founding publisher was his son, Henry Regnery.
