Chicago holds its breath, awaiting release of a police video showing 13-year-old Adam Toledo, reportedly with a gun, shot dead by a cop.
The city by the lake hasn’t recovered from the waves of looting and other violence that grew out of last year’s George Floyd protests. Just look at all the vacant storefronts on North Michigan Avenue, the ...Read more
Baseball’s greatest day was April 15, 1947. It was the day when Jackie Robinson broke baseball’s infamous color line to become the first Black player ever to play in a major league game.
Finally, after centuries of racial discrimination, there was a sense that merit, not skin pigment, was what was to be valued in America’s life. Because ...Read more
Have you read, heard or seen that important news story about an Asian American federal judge — born in Taiwan and subject to discrimination growing up — who confronted and denounced those who discriminate by race?

On the disaster at our southern border, I find myself, oddly, in agreement with Democrats and their media mouthpieces who are so desperately defending President Joe Biden.
They’ve been insisting, rather frantically, that the chaos we’re seeing on the border didn’t just begin on Jan. 20, the day Biden was inaugurated. I agree. It did not ...Read more
President Joe Biden’s handlers are still shielding him from full-blown news conferences with reporters, but they let him talk directly with Chinese President and Communist Party General Secretary Xi Jinping?
Ye gods! What were they thinking, letting Biden talk to Xi Jinping?
Xi Jinping wants to eat our lunch, the president said after talking...Read more
How long will President Joe Biden’s handlers keep shielding him from White House news conferences? Just how long will the “Hide Biden” strategy last?

Who’s the woke white guy in dreadlocks in that viral video taking his daughter to in-person learning at a private school?
If you’re a parent in one of the many lockdown public school districts across the country where teachers unions dictate Democratic Party politics and refuse to “follow the science,” you know who it is. And if you don...Read more
“Follow the science” is what progressive Democrats demand when the science suits them.

There are plenty of Republicans ...Read more
When conservative radio giant Rush Limbaugh died, it took only seconds for the vultures of the left to swoop down and begin picking at the public corpse.
Not all on the left did so. Some were gracious. But many were filled with glee and rapture that their great enemy was gone. I won’t begin to dignify them with a response. They reveal ...Read more
In their second impeachment of the man who is now no longer president, the Democrats fixed Donald Trump’s orange political head upon their rattle.
They waved it before a deeply divided nation and pronounced him a demon. On one level, it reminds me of the Native American sorcerer in the movie “Black Robe,” who castigates his rival as a ...Read more
When I was a boy about 11, I committed a crime that changed my life.
I stole a book. I was a book thief.
I found it in another kid’s desk and began reading, hiding it behind some boring textbook, and couldn’t give it up.
And when the last bell rang, I hid it furtively under my jacket as if it were some rare, precious and struggling bird, ...Read more
This is National School Choice Week, and if there’s been one benefit to the pandemic lockdowns of public schools across the country it’s this:
American parents have realized they have a choice.
Because working from home, many have had to go to school, too, listening along to the laptop learning on the kitchen table.

As Joe Biden was sworn in as our 46th president, he delivered a simple yet eloquent speech about America’s “uncivil war” and preached unity to a politically divided nation.
“We must end this uncivil war that pits red against blue, rural versus urban, conservative versus liberal. We can do this if we open our souls instead of hardening ...Read more
