Did the Famous Sailor Sexually Assault the Famous Nurse?

Tuesday, Sep 20, 2016

The most famous American photo of World War II is undoubtedly that of the four Marines planting the American flag on Iwo Jima. The second most famous is probably the legendary photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt’s picture of an American sailor kissing a nurse in Times Square in New York City, when people were celebrating Japan’s surrender. The kiss was not, of course, merely a peck on the cheek. If it were, no photo would have been taken. And if one were, no one would have remembered it. The sailor clearly grabbed the nurse. She is leaning backward, bent at the waist; he is holding...

How Is the Godless West Working Out?

Tuesday, Sep 13, 2016

There are many recent developments in the godless West. To name a few: –The Supreme Court of Italy last week ruled that public masturbation is legal (except in front of minors). –The New York City Council voted in May that public urination is not a criminal act. –The San Francisco City Council decided, by one vote, to continue the city’s ban on public nudity — not, of course, on the grounds of “decency” but on the grounds of public health. Since that can easily be resolved by use of a towel on public benches and chairs, it is only a matter of time,...

Trump, Republicans and the ‘Principles’ Question

Tuesday, Sep 6, 2016

All #NeverTrump conservatives maintain that their decision to never vote for Donald Trump is guided by their principles. I have no doubt that this is true. But some of them seem to imply, or at least might think, that conservatives who vote for Trump have abandoned their principles. Indeed, the charge of compromising on principle is explicitly levied at Republican politicians and members of the Republican “establishment” who support Trump. I cannot speak for all conservatives who are voting for Trump, but I can speak for many in making this assertion: We have the same principles...

On Hillary Clinton as a Model for Young Girls

Tuesday, Aug 30, 2016

One of the most oft-heard claims made by supporters of Hillary Clinton is what a positive role model she would be for young girls as president. They say: “Then, my daughters will know that nothing is to too great for them to aspire to. A woman can indeed be president of the United States.” So goes the argument. According to the latest Quinnipiac University poll, women will vote for Clinton by 60 percent to 36 percent, a margin of 24 percent. In the last presidential election, the margin was 10 percent. If the polls are accurate concerning the lopsided female support for Clinton,...

Why Do People Still Donate to Universities?

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

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

Tuesday, Jul 12, 2016

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...
