Despite deeply appreciating the victory of Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation, I didn’t experience the schadenfreude I thought I would. The part of my mind which harbors hatred for my enemies and usually roils at the anti-white antics of the Left felt oddly calm and steady. (more…)

Politics is all about open secrets. This is especially true in societies as racially integrated and tribal as ours has become. These open secrets went on glittering display last Friday during the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court.
