Nov 16, 2021 ~ Kevin Williamson, 'Gerrymandering Is Normal' "The Democrats were perfectly happy with gerrymandering for the better part of 200 years, understanding it to be an utterly normal part of the political process. They began to object to it when Republicans got good at it."
Mar 6, 2021 ~ Kevin Williamson, 'What Caused the Texas Blackouts?' Deregulation was not the problem. Renewables were not the problem. They did go to 0 but Texas is not dumb enough to rely on them. And some of the precautions that can be taken against extreme cold don't work in extreme heat.
Feb 22, 2021 ~ Kevin Williamson, 'Ask an Engineer'. Still investigating Texas power fail but Texas on its own power grid was not a contributing factor. And when they looked at putting Texas on one of the more national grids, they concluded that would make the system as a whole less reliable.

Jul 15, 2020 ~ Kevin Williamson, 'Even Saints Can Get Canceled' This points out that there is really no end to canceling historical names. St. Louis would be canceled by today's standards. As would New York and the names of thousands of other cities, some very well known. Would it help anyone?
Jul 11, 2020 ~ Kevin Williamson, 'Kings of the Castle' 'Cancel culture is not discourse but antidiscourse, a genre of speech intended not to facilitate the exchange of views and ideas but to prevent such an exchange. It is free speech in the sense that shouting down a speaker is free speech.'

Nov 30, 2018 ~ Kevin Williamson, "The Man-Made Affordable-Housing 'Crisis'" - 'Rules that prohibit cheap housing lead to ... a lack of cheap housing' - they chase poor people out of town instead of magically giving them a nicer place to live. Uses Dallas as a case study.
Nov 11, 2018 ~ Kevin Williamson, 'Rent Control Resurgent'. Dems keep going to the playbook of old failed programs like Rent Control. Even Krugman has said the 'negative results' are 'entirely predictable'. Walter Williams, 'no surer way to destroy a neighborhood short of carpet bombing it.'
Oct 30, 2018 ~ Julia Ioffe was fired from Politico for tweeting Trump was 'fucking his daughter'. She was then hired by the Atlantic who says Kevin Williamson is unfit to work there, but Ioffe is fine. Now says Trump is responsible for Pittsburgh Synagogue shooting for moving embassy in Israel.

Feb 20, 2018 ~ Kevin Williamson, 'The Intellectual Emptiness of "White Supremacy"'. Everything from our justice system to gentrification is now called 'white supremacy'. Term was resurrected from history because the race card alone was no longer working well. Have to 'lace' the race card drug.

Sep 28, 2017 ~ Kevin Williamson 'McHealthcare Deluxe. The Affordable Care Act is a failed political product' Did not deliver on any of its promises. Dems can't admit. Why conservatives like federalism. No central structure can get it right. States are 50 labs to experiment to find best ways.
May 28, 2017 ~ Kevin Williamson, 'Terrorism Is Not Random, We must look at Muslim immigration with clear eyes' The left wants to continue to bury its head it the sand comparing many dozens of Islamic terrorist attacks to Tim McVeigh, one guy, who wasn't Christian or even a typical right winger.
