Why Do People Still Donate to Universities?

Tuesday, Aug 16, 2016

There was rare good news this month. On August 4, The New York Times published a front-page article headlined, “College Students Protest, Alumni’s Fondness Fades and Checks Shrink.” According to The Times, some college alumni are awakening to the fact that their beloved alma maters are nothing like the decent, open, tolerant, committed-to-learning places they remember. Rather, nearly every college and university in America has become the least open, the least tolerant, the most hate-filled and the most anti-American (and, of course, anti-Israel) mainstream institution in...

Pope Francis and the Decline of the West

Pope Francis made comments last week that reveal the most important single thing you need to know about the modern world: The most dynamic religion of the last hundred years has been leftism. Not Christianity, and not Islam, but leftism. Leftism has taken over the world’s leading educational institutions, the world’s news media and the world’s popular entertainment, and it has influenced Christianity (and Judaism) far more than Christianity (or Judaism) has influenced anything. On July 26, two Muslims slit the throat of a French Roman Catholic priest, the Rev. Jacques Hamel,...

Did #NeverTrumpers Hear Hillary Clinton’s Frightening Speech?

Tuesday, Aug 2, 2016

My #NeverTrump colleagues and friends make valid points about Donald Trump. I know — I made them myself during the Republican primaries. But it is vital to understand what will happen if Hillary Clinton wins the presidency. This country will be so far from what the Founding Fathers wanted, so different from what the #NeverTrumpers have always fought for, that it is almost impossible to see how America could recover from her — or any Democrat’s — victory. Thanks to the universities’ leftist indoctrination of two generations of Americans, and thanks to Bernie...

Trump’s Speech Wasn’t ‘Dark’ Enough

Tuesday, Jul 26, 2016

One of the many remarkable traits of the progressives is their lack of self-awareness. This trait was on display last week in the media and Democratic Party’s characterization of Donald Trump’s acceptance speech — and the entire Republican National Convention — as “dark.” For the left to dismiss other Americans as having a dark view of America is preposterous. Because no one — not Trump, not the Republican Party, not any conservative — has nearly as dark a view of America as does the left. Across the board — from the universities to the...

Few in the West Are Serious About Islamic Terror

Tuesday, Jul 19, 2016

It appears that no matter how many men, women and children Islamists slaughter or maim, few in the West take Islamic terror seriously. This may sound odd, given how much talk there is about terror, but a compelling case can be made for this assertion. 1) The Western elites The elites of the Western world are far more preoccupied with — and fearful of — global warming than Islamic terror. They regard those who believe that Islamic terror is the greatest threat to civilization as not merely wrong but bigots. They have labeled such people Islamophobes, but of course, there is no such...

The New York Times and the Left Have Blood on Their Hands

It was very appropriate that on Friday, the day after the massacre of five Dallas police officers, The New York Times devoted nearly the whole top half of its front page to four enormous photos of the death of Philando Castile, a black motorist killed by a Minnesota police officer. Of course, the paper was printed prior to the Dallas murders; and even The New York Times might not have so prominently featured the Minnesota killing on its front page had the Dallas murders occurred a few hours earlier. Nevertheless, it was completely appropriate. The New York Times has been in the forefront of...

Why the Left Hates Referendums

Tuesday, Jun 28, 2016

One of the common laments of leftist commentators in Europe and America concerning Brexit is that holding referendums is a bad idea. The most frequently expressed example is the contempt in which the left holds British Prime Minister David Cameron for having suggested the referendum in the first place. But why would the left hate referendums? Doesn’t it claim to represent “the people”? Isn’t “power to the people” one of the most popular sayings of the left? Isn’t the American left trying to abolish the Electoral College precisely because it...

The Immaturity of Supporting Hillary Clinton as a Woman

Tuesday, Jun 21, 2016

It is hard to imagine a more immature or morally primitive stance than that of progressive women (and men) who argue how important it is to support Hillary Clinton because, as your local college would put it, she identifies as a woman. One perfect example of such thinking was the recent statement made by former Secretary of State Madeline Albright at an event on behalf of Clinton. Albright announced that “there is a special place in hell” for women who don’t support women, meaning in this instance, for women who don’t vote for Clinton. It is important to note that such...

What If the Orlando Murderer Were a Christian?

Tuesday, Jun 14, 2016
2016-06-13T230139Z_50_LYNXNPEC5C17Z_RTROPTP_3_FLORIDA-SHOOTING

Many people are surely asking, “What if the gunman from the Orlando, Florida shooting were a Christian?” Why? Because little would be said by the mainstream media and leading Democratic politicians — from the president on down — if the murderer were an anti-gay Christian. The most obvious difference is that the media and the Democrats would have blamed Christians for the mass slaughter, whereas they do everything in their power to exonerate Muslims. Indeed, as many have noted, President Obama and the entire Democratic Party leadership have long refused to even use the...
