Photos by @2021 Peter Duke, used with kind permission

You probably never heard of Tinhorn Flats. I had not, not until photographer Peter Duke alerted me to a protest there this week, where he shot these photos. But all Americans should know about Tinhorn Flats, a Western-themed restaurant in the middle of Burbank, California, where Angelenos yearning to breathe free (maskless) of the corona hoax tyranny and peacefully assemble for beer and burgers according to their constitutional rights and good taste have rallied, and continue to rally, yes, for freedom.

Local media coverage sketches in only the outline of this small business's epic struggle against dictatorial Big Government and Big Tech, not to mention Big Fear and Big Apathy. The most recent account of...

A few weeks ago, I wrote an essay calling for the release of Thomas Caldwell, a retired naval officer who is one of hundreds of American patriots undergoing Soviet show-trial-style persecution by the US Justice Department for coming out to support the re-election of President Trump on Capitol Hill on January 6. 

Like so many of these cases, a careful reading of the court documents reveals the case to be especially egregious. It is apparent that the government has "mounted a deeply flawed case based on reckless and numerous errors about the accused. These errors alone should lead to the case's dismissal," as I wrote last month.

Now. Sharon Caldwell, retired Lt Commander Caldwell's wife, writes in:

Dear Ms. West,

A friend of mine just forwarded...

Keeping the airwaves free of election fraud

--

Sanity check: Biden wasn't "elected." He was installed in a complex, all-government, both parties, media-wide coup. He and his fake vice president are puppets of forces that remain unknown to us.

However, now it is Victor Davis Hanson, who, never mind the garden-variety critique (Biden suffers from "meglomania), dispenses with 2020 election fraud and declares Biden the winner:

Biden got elected by unleashing others to insist that he was a healer, not a boisterous Trump-style divider, and by enlisting special interests to redefine how we vote.

"By enlisting special interests to redefine how we vote"? 

My hat is off to Hanson for the remarkable phraseology by which he is able to make every kind...

From the Washington Examiner, an op-ed by Rep. Matt Gaetz (FL-1). 

"The swamp is out to drown me with false charges, but I'm not giving up"

Washington scandal cycles are predictable, and sex is especially potent in politics. Let me first remind everyone that I am a representative in Congress, not a monk, and certainly not a criminal.

Nancy Pelosi once defended President Bill Clinton after he got an intern to fellate him in the Oval Office. But when it comes to the allegation that I, a grown man, paid for an adult girlfriend’s expenses? Well, consider that a bridge too far for the power-hungry hypocrites.

I want to be clear about something as we process the leaks and lies from...

This a picture of Vladimir Bukovsky and Robert Conquest in the early 1980s. Bukovsky emailed it to me in January 2018. 

-- 

I have been thinking about moments when it appeared the truth would not only out but triumph and thought back to a blistering "told you so" phrase attributed to Robert Conquest and wondered when it was he was moved to say it.

It turns out he he didn't say it -- a relief, I must say since, however justified, it always made me wince. In a 2007 letter to the editor of the New York Review of Books, Conquest informs the public that it was "the ever-inventive" Kingsley Amis, not he, who coined the phrase.

The record, though, plays on.

In response to

"Executioner Songs" from the March 1, 2007 issue
