Immigration And Islamists

6:08 PM 07/11/2017

The conventional wisdom among America's academic, corporate, media and political elites is that open borders and mass immigration are noble objectives.

Terrorism Is Not The Enemy

12:56 PM 06/23/2017

Terrorism, defined by the use of fear and intimidation and the violent targeting of innocent human lives, is horrible. But America is not at war with terrorism.

Russia’s Trump Problem

9:43 AM 03/23/2017

Since well before Donald Trump was elected president, the media have been obsessed with his supposed Russia problem—stemming from the Putin regime’s alleged interference in the 2016 election and its purported ties to key members of Trump’s campaign.

What Will The New Year Bring For Persecuted Christians?

1:40 PM 12/29/2016

As the New Year approaches, it is heartbreaking to see what is happening to Christians in Muslim-majority countries around the world. The barbarism of ISIS is almost impossible to imagine. But the persecution is hardly limited to that satanic death cult. It is a defining feature throughout much of the Middle East and beyond. Sadly, too many of our political and cultural elites are in denial.

Immigration As A Weapon

1:05 PM 12/05/2016

The NFL’s Circus Of Political Correctness

4:34 PM 09/15/2016

Sports used to be a bastion of conservative mores and traditional values such as hard work, teamwork, competition and, yes, manliness. Today, while many athletes and coaches exhibit these values, much of the business and media surrounding the industry have embraced a liberalism that not only disapproves of these values but actively seeks to eliminate them.

Olympic Coverage Puts Identity Politics Over Performance

3:54 PM 08/23/2016

Most Americans know that Michael Phelps won his 23rd Gold medal (and 28th medal overall) at the Rio Olympics, that Simone Biles became America’s newest gymnastics darling by winning four Gold medals and a Bronze and that Usain Bolt did what you’d expect somebody named Bolt to do and won his third straight Gold medal in the 100-meter, 200-meter and 100-meter relay.

Republicans Aren’t Imploding — They’re Thriving

4:15 PM 10/29/2015

The media’s conventional wisdom holds that Republicans are in disarray and on the verge of imploding. Some pundits have even suggested that the GOP may soon stop functioning as a national party. That this conclusion comes from those whose would welcome the GOP’s failure should lead one to question such analysis. But the assessment is widely reported all the same.

Don’t Use The Duggar Scandal To Bash Traditional Beliefs

4:15 PM 06/02/2015

When it was recently reported that Josh Duggar molested several girls as a young teenager, some of the media seemed almost delighted by the news. This is in part because Duggar stars in 19 and Counting, a popular TV show about a family of conservative Christians.

The GOP’s Unforced Error On Abortion

3:37 PM 01/23/2015

When House Republicans scheduled the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act for a vote on January 22, pro-life leaders noted the powerful symbolism of holding the life-affirming vote on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court’s decision legalizing most abortions nationally.

R.I.P, ‘War On Women’

3:34 PM 11/05/2014

The Democrats’ war on unborn babies has failed, and with it their “war on women” meme can finally be laid to rest.

The Other Women In The ‘War On Women’

10:54 AM 10/24/2014

In the world of Democratic political messaging, the dominant narrative is that women support abortion rights while men — specifically Republican men — seek to deny them. But that narrative is not only simplistic, it is also largely false.
