Legislating Human Nature Is a Pipe Dream of the Left


As a child, I was terrified to fly. Still am to some degree. But back then, seeing the aftermaths of the occasional plane crash on the evening news filled me with unspeakable terror. I always dreamed of going to Europe, but vowed that when I did, I would travel by boat. My fears soon subsided, […]

Sore Losers: The Biggest Threat to Democracy


Am I the only one experiencing déjà vu? The election of Brazil’s new, right-wing President, Jair Bolsonaro, has elicited the same “death of democracy” hyperbole that followed Trump’s election victory in 2016. Consider the Independent’s “Fascism has arrived in Brazil — Jair Bolsonaro’s presidency will be worse than you think,” or the New York Times’s “Can […]

The Three Hard Truths of the Trump Era


If the first couple of years are any indication, Trump’s presidency will almost certainly go down in history as one of America’s most divisive and dramatic. Long-term friendships and family bonds have been shattered, and the unrest is such that pundits are actually discussing the possibility of a civil war. It’s sadly not out of […]

Melting Pot Meltdown


America’s greatness, they say, is built on its patchwork cultural foundation. The ability of numerous and varied peoples to peacefully live side by side, each contributing their best while recognizing the best of others, is the backbone of the American experiment.

When asked why they weren’t outraged at the treatment of illegal immigrants under Obama, liberals generally offer a common response along the lines of “I didn’t know it was happening.” Even California Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein played the ignorance card, telling CNN: “…I didn’t really know enough about it at that time enough to focus […]

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” Those were the words of Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1963, words that have become so entwined into the American […]

Trump’s Presidency May Decide the Fate of Socialism in America


Be afraid. Be very afraid. Last week, the Washington Post ran an opinion piece by Elizabeth Bruenig entitled “It’s time to give socialism a try.” While such an outlandish idea isn’t necessarily out of place on the Opinion page of the Post (or even in the thick of its news for that matter), Bruenig’s casual […]

Political Correctness Is to Blame for Parkland


Before the blood had dried at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, the left started its familiar blame game. They moved fast to try gun culture, especially the AR-15 and the National Rifle Association, in the court of public opinion, for they understood well that true understanding of a tragedy takes time. And […]

Friedman Freakout Goes Viral for All the Wrong Reasons


In a rare demonstration of humility, the New York Times’ Thomas Friedman is making the rounds boasting of the popularity of one of his recent columns. The legendary reporter and author of such books as From Beirut to Jerusalem and The World is Flat recently told CNN’s Brian Stelter the popular piece is “the most […]

Trump Tax Cut Proving Ammo for Free Market Faithful


Two months after Donald Trump signed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act into law, and America is still standing. It’s a remarkable feat considering the left’s apocalyptic predictions that the tax cut would devastate the American economy. Not only is America standing, but it’s rolling full-steam ahead, a freight train of economic progress that promises […]
