Rating the Presidents — and Obama

 

I’ve been getting emails from bewildered colleagues asking about a survey of presidential scholars that determined that Barack Obama is the 12th best president in the history of the United States, putting him near the top quartile of our presidents. How can this be? I, too, was mystified, especially given that I participated in the […]

Women’s Marchers, Unite!

 

“The most important task,” said communist dictator Kim Il Sung in October 1971, in his address to the Democratic Women’s Union of North Korea, “is to revolutionize and working-classize all the women.” Kim hoisted the torch blazed by glorious female comrades such as Alexandra Kollontai (the Eleanor Roosevelt of the Bolshevik Revolution), Bella Dodd, Rosa […]

When Liberal Doves Become Russia Hawks

 

In the final presidential debate of 2012, Barack Obama mocked Mitt Romney that “the 1980s” were “calling to ask for their foreign policy back.” Romney warned Obama that Putin and the Kremlin were not our pals. Obama chortled at the pathetic Cold War reactionary. He and fellow liberals had a good laugh. There was, of […]

Death by Fidel

 

Fidel Castro is dead. To say those words is so strange. I’ve never known a moment when he wasn’t alive. Castro came to power seven years before I was born, and I’m almost 50. I’ve been lecturing on the man every fall semester for 20 years, spending two or three weeks on him, his ideology, […]

Communists and Socialists Going Bonkers Over Trump

 

If you’re in the mood for a little levity this weekend, take a gander at the websites of Communist Party USA, People’s World, and the Democratic Socialists of America (among other leftists-in-arms), where they are going absolutely bonkers over Donald Trump’s big win. To say that these comrades had been ready for Hillary is an […]

Trump’s Stunning Victory — and Stunning Reality

 

Donald Trump’s victory was stunning. It is a shocking historical accomplishment. It is an absolute game-changer. Congrats, congrats, and congrats to The Donald and his team. I am personally thrilled — could not be happier — that Hillary Clinton will not be our next president. One of my main reasons (I had many, and still […]

Tom Hayden: From SDS and Viet Cong to Progressives for Obama

 

Tom Hayden, the Vietnam War protester and SDS founder, died this past weekend at age 76. Hayden’s journey was in many ways tragic. Born December 1939 in the Detroit suburbs, he was not, unlike many radical leaders, a red-diaper baby. His parents were Irish Catholics who named him after St. Thomas Aquinas and sent him […]

Hillary’s Abortion Doctor

 

When asked in the last presidential debate what she wanted in a Supreme Court justice, Hillary Clinton did not hesitate to go to abortion. “I want a Supreme Court that will stick with Roe v. Wade and a woman’s right to choose,” affirmed Mrs. Clinton, to no one’s surprise. There is nothing more sacrosanct to […]

Herb Meyer: Prophet of Optimism

 

As Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton debate everything from the Russians to fighting ISIS, they might want to pause to consider a special briefing from someone who truly knows what he’s talking about, someone who played a vital role in defeating our previous great enemy — Soviet communism. His name is Herb Meyer, and he […]

Why Didn’t Trump Mention Monica?

 

In Monday’s presidential debate, Hillary Clinton wrapped up with some parting shots at Donald Trump for his degrading statements toward women. For Hillary, it was low-hanging fruit. If looking to smack-down Donald Trump for an offensive statement or two toward women, the options are vast, a veritable harvest of rich opportunities. Reach into the grab-bag […]
