Truth is not a left-wing value.
I first discovered this as a graduate student studying the Soviet Union and left-wing ideologies at the Russian Institute of Columbia University School of International Affairs. Everything I have learned since has confirmed this view.
Individuals on both the left and right lie. Individuals on both the left and ...Read more
In his State of the Union address, President Trump announced, "All Americans can be proud that we have more women in the workforce than ever before." It was one of the few times he received a standing ovation from both Democrats and Republicans.
I would not have stood and cheered.
Either the president or whoever wrote that line honestly ...Read more
From a material perspective, life in America gets better and better. From a moral perspective, the same claim cannot be made. One manifestation of our moral decline is how the country, thanks to the Democratic Party and the left, is getting meaner.
The case of Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam and a 35-year-old racist photo from his medical school ...Read more
If I were to tell you that a growing group of killjoys wants to ban NFL cheerleading, would you guess that this group is on the political left or right?
Must be the right, right? They're the religious ones with all the sexual hang-ups.
They're on the left.
And what's their problem with cheerleading?
I'll let them speak for themselves...Read more
The American Psychological Association has, in its words, issued "its first-ever guidelines for practice with men and boys." These guidelines "draw on more than 40 years of research showing that traditional masculinity is psychologically harmful and that socializing boys to suppress their emotions causes damage."
1) The ...Read more
Democrats and others on the left offer three reasons for their opposition to building a wall on America's southern border.
1. A wall is ineffective.
2. A wall is too expensive.
3. A wall is immoral.
Each one is false, so false as to constitute lies. So, the only question is: Do Democrats and others on the left believe these lies?
This ...Read more
The first public thing Mitt Romney did in the year 2019 -- on Jan. 1 -- was publish an attack on President Trump in the Washington Post, which, as we know, has not lacked for attacks on Trump.
He did not even wait until being sworn in, two days later.
I campaigned for Sen. Mitt Romney when he ran for president, including a closed-door meeting ...Read more
I rarely make predictions -- whether of election results or anything else. My policy has always been to say what I believe should be done, not what will be done.
I am making an exception with regard to America in 2019.
2019 will be a dark year in America.
Thanks to the left's control of the House of Representatives and the ...Read more
When I talk to young people, I try to offer them what I was offered when I was their age but is rarely offered today: wisdom. I was given wisdom largely because I went to a religious school -- a yeshiva, a traditional Jewish school in which the long day (9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.) was divided between studying religious subjects (in Hebrew) and ...Read more
Is "Merry Christmas" a thing of the past, a greeting from a bygone era, a remnant of a past with which we no longer want to be associated? We might not be there yet, but if current trends continue, we're not far off. If so, it's a shame, a further coarsening of the culture -- and worse. It is yet another an example of the removal of religion, ...Read more
Every Wednesday, the second hour of my national radio show is the "Male/Female Hour." A few weeks ago, a woman named Jennifer called in. For reasons of space, I have somewhat shortened her comments. Every young woman should read them. This is precisely what she said:
"Dennis, I want to get right to it. I'm 50 years old with four college degrees...Read more
