Web Compendium of Alito Materials

The Committee for Justice has created a great web page that links to — and organizes in a very reader-friendly way — a lot of good material on the Alito nomination, including refutations of various attacks by the Left. If you’re looking for information on issues relating to the Alito nomination, I think that this collection is the best place to start. (I’ll admit that I’m biased by the fact that a number of the links are to my posts and essays.)

CFJ wants to keep improving the web page, so if you’re aware of any information that’s not on the CFJ web page and should be, let CFJ know.

(Update: I’ve corrected the link to the CFJ web page.)

I don’t think they were racist; I think they were abjectly stupid. Like many ... Read More

Robert Francis O’Rourke is white. If it’s any consolation, he’s very sorry about that. “Beto” has been running from his Irish ancestry for some time now. Long before the Left fell headlong into the logical termini of its triune fascination with race, power, and privilege, O’Rourke sensed that there ... Read More
