The push by some anti-Trump Republicans to nominate Gen. James Mattis at the convention is odd, I write in today’s column (but I am more focused on tomorrow’s Libertarian Party of New York, at which I’ll moderate a debate between the leading LP presidential candidates, and you can watch at Facebook.com/NowThisElection from about 2:15-4pm Eastern).

Globalism was our forte, man, and now the populists on the right, such as Trump, want to withdraw from the world with a snarl, I lament in today’s column.

Some Trump fans can’t resist likening non-Trump fans to losers who enjoy being abused -- but has there ever been a more manifestly abusive and unreliable politician than Trump, I ask in today’s column? Might Trump fans enjoy being “cuckolded”?

Most political factions used to talk about “gradualism” as the reasonable approach to political change -- but I write in today’s column that I’m not so sure we can talk about gradual change anymore in a world that transforms so rapidly.

For good or ill, half of director Roland Emmerich’s oeuvre comes not from mainstream eco-concerns but from “ancient astronaut” theories such as those of Graham Hancock, as I note in my column today.

Like most people, I can barely follow the complex battles between online feminists and online anti-feminists such as #GamerGate, but it appears one of the most prominent of the feminists, Zoe Quinn, may herself be a harasser trying to take down female rivals pseudonymously, I note in today’s column.

I’m not sure why I keep trying, but I suppose I’ll vote in the Republican primary today, as I write in today’s column, casting a futile New York protest vote for Cruz, even as a Temple of Baal replica rises menacingly in Times Square.

Yesterday was the tenth anniversary of me co-founding the use of the V for Vendetta mask in protests, apparently, but it’s Jabba the Hutt who may dominate politics in the end, I write.

As the Alison Rapp scandal unfolds, think how funny it is feminists’ filter systems keep doing the same thing non-feminists’ filter systems do: weeding out the cowardly and rewarding the savage brutes, I write in today’s column.

After being reminded when I was on Gavin McInnes’s show yesterday that libertarians like me tend to be nerds, I assure the world in my column today that I am aware of that problem -- and indeed aware that nerds at their worst are not so terribly unlike jock bullies, ironically.

The book is out today -- and the column about, for Beginners beginners, is up as well. So too Gerard Perry’s review.

There are plenty of reasons to criticize Hillary Clinton, but neither her support for the ouster of Honduras’s President Zelaya nor advisor John Podesta’s legitimate interest in UFOs should be among them, I write.

From the campuses to Glasgow, free speech is out of fashion, which is unfortunate, since speech was the one freedom I thought we all agreed was precious, I write.

NYC suffers simultaneous ambiguity over the pace of Water Tunnel No. 3 and whether de Blasio’s businessmen associates bribed cops, I write.

There are two basic political factions in this world -- or so they keep telling us, but the confusion over the current presidential campaign is one small reminder it’s actually a much more complex, multivariable world, I write.

I worry in today’s column that even thoughtful writers such as Eli Lake accept parts of the interlocking system of foreign wars, refugees, angry militants, welfare, and domestic surveillance we seem to have constructed for ourselves.

Remember that professional wrestling veteran Trump -- much like Hillary Clinton -- likes having colorful villains to work with, I warn in today’s column.
