John Lott knows!
Only one group commits fewer mass shootings than whites – and it’s not Asians.
- Lott’s latest study: Updated information on Mass Public Shootings from 1998 through October 2023
- But you must also go here – Crime Prevention Research Center. It has the studies on everything – guns, the death penalty, assault weapons, waiting periods, red flag laws, international comparisons, etc. etc.
- And here’s the book by Lott that’s already saved tens of thousands of lives – ‘More Guns Less Crime: Understanding Crime and Gun Control Laws.’
- And Ann’s column that maybe saved half a life: Ruger is a Girl’s Best Friend
Andrew Gutmann’s outstanding letter to Brearley parents is here.
It cannot be stated strongly enough that Brearley’s obsession with race must stop. It should be abundantly clear to any thinking parent that Brearley has completely lost its way. The administration and the Board of Trustees have displayed a cowardly and appalling lack of leadership by appeasing an anti-intellectual, illiberal mob, and then allowing the school to be captured by that same mob.
A Hawkeye Caucai special!

“There are remarkable performances along the way, especially from Clifton Duncan singing the rangy arias of “Greenwillow” and Bebe Neuwirth snarling Elaine Stritch’s songs from “Sail Away.”
This week Ann interviews New York Times reporter Jeremy Peters on his new book, Insurgency: How the Republicans Lost their Party and Got Everything They Ever Wanted.
Specifically, we zero in on the Fox News Channel – Dominion Voting Systems lawsuit and the discovery process that showed that what FNC stars were saying on-air hardly matched what they were saying to each other in private.
- Ryan Girdusky’s 1776 Project PAC
- Bloomberg: In 2021 94% of jobs with the S&P 100 went to people of color, only 6% to whites.
- Smart liberal pollster, David Shor: “People yell at me on Twitter about this. So working-class white people have an enormous amount of political power and they’re trending towards the Republican Party. In 2016, we didn’t lose because our get-out-the-vote lists were not sorted well enough. And it wasn’t that we had the wrong kind of digital targeting. We lost because, big picture, we ran a campaign that increased the salience of immigration at a time when marginal voters in swing states in the Midwest disagreed with us on immigration. That’s why we lost.”
- My interview with Gov. Ron DeSantis before the first debate.The 6-week abortion ban may be unpopular, but DeSantis is right: That’s not why the GOP lost so many seats in 2022. It was Trump.
