Whales! Harpoons! Ahoy Donors!

So for the purposes of this post, we’ll use “whales” in the sense that casinos use the term — folks with lots of cash, high-rollers who can toss a few C-Notes our way. And “Harpoons” — well, that means pints of great ales of the renowned Boston brewery. So, you New England whales, let us throw a couple of Harpoons into ye on November 20th, all for the good, great, awesome purpose of helping NR.

Boy, do we need the help. And to prove it, we’re bringing out the Big Guns — Mark Steyn, Jonah Goldberg, Jay Nordlinger, Jim Geraghty, and Kevin Williamson — to mix, mingle, entertain, pose, you name it, at our Big Boston Fundraiser (well, not so “big,” as capacity for the venue is only 60 people).

Let’s review the particulars. The date will be November 20, the time from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., the place is the Harpoon Brewery in Beantown, and so you don’t go hungry of thirsty, we’ll be serving beer, ale, maybe even cider, homemade pretzels, and heavy hors d’oeuvres. All that in return for your generosity.

Fun. Wit. Wisdom. Camaraderie. Clinking glasses. Pretzel-eating feats. Discussion of current events. Maybe even a sing-along! Helping NR. All the conservative planets will be aligning, so you will want to be there. Join us on November 20th for the Big Boston Fundraiser. Sign up here.

Kill Chic

We live in a society in which gratuitous violence is the trademark of video games, movies, and popular music. Kill this, shoot that in repugnant detail becomes a race to the visual and spoken bottom.

Romney Is a Misfit for America

Mitt’s back. The former governor of Massachusetts and occasional native son of Michigan has a new persona: Mr. Utah. He’s going to bring Utah conservatism to the whole Republican party and to the country at large. Wholesome, efficient, industrious, faithful. “Utah has a lot to teach the politicians in ... Read More

What the Second Amendment Means Today

The horrifying school massacre in Parkland, Fla., has prompted another national debate about guns. Unfortunately, it seems that these conversations are never terribly constructive — they are too often dominated by screeching extremists on both sides of the aisle and armchair pundits who offer sweeping opinions ...

Fire the FBI Chief

American government is supposed to look and sound like George Washington.

Black Panther’s Circle of Hype

The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) first infantilizes its audience, then banalizes it, and, finally, controls it through marketing. This commercial strategy, geared toward adolescents of all ages, resembles the Democratic party’s political manipulation of black Americans, targeting that audience through its ... Read More
