Death of the Professions

In other words, the vast majority of U.S. adults do not have much formal ...Read more
Dear Americans: You Were Duped
There's no reason to soft-pedal it: If you believed the Russia collusion narrative and everything it entails, you were duped.
In a revelation that comes as no surprise to anyone who was paying attention, it turns out that there was no evidence -- none -- that former President Donald Trump "colluded" with Russia. Ever.

Dissent From Leftist Narratives Is Moving Toward Critical Mass
As the nation continues its precipitous decline under the weight of the deceitful and destructive policies of the uber-Left, something important is happening -- slowly and incrementally, but definitely -- in our most impactful cultural institutions, including the media, the entertainment industry, Silicon Valley, academia and the medical ...Read more
Asking the Right Questions About Immigration
Unless they live in border states, most Americans seem oblivious to the ongoing immigration crisis in the country.

To put things in perspective, Newsweek...Read more
What's Needed Now Is Not False 'Compassion' but Real Courage
An obsession with a distorted sense of "compassion" is strangling our national debate on the most important issues of our time and contributing to the ongoing deterioration of the country. Leftist activists and politicians love to appeal to people's "compassion" in support of policies with demonstrably destructive results, and we must stop ...Read more
Fight With Everything You Have or Lose Everything You Have
In a world that seems increasingly chaotic -- one in which we are bombarded, daily, with shocking headlines -- it's all too easy to dismiss bad news as nothing more than unfortunate but isolated events. This is a grievous error. The events we are watching are not isolated; they are connected. There are reasons and methods behind ...Read more
Time to Stop Worshipping Youth Over Wisdom

Hyperbole, Hysteria and Hatred
With yet another deranged lunatic having decided that the best way to get attention is to shoot up a school and murder people, it's time to look at the role played by the increasingly heated rhetoric that characterizes political, cultural and social debate in this country.
Politicians, admittedly, have done this forever. They demonize ...Read more
The Left's Long March Into Despotism
Author and Christian apologist C. S. Lewis once wrote: "Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but ...Read more
The Vulgarization of America
Last Thursday, United States Circuit Court Judge Stuart Kyle Duncan attempted to give a speech at Stanford Law School, where he had been invited to speak by the local chapter of the Federalist Society. In yet another example of bad behavior that is becoming increasingly common on university campuses, a mob of obnoxious students shouted, screamed...Read more
J6 Lies Are Part of a Much Bigger Pattern
