Phil Richardson: Terrorist NeoNazis came to Charlottesville spoiling for a fight

By Phil Richardson An Austrian native was the world’s worst race-hating terrorist of all time. Adolph Hitler became a hero by promising Germans he would make Deutchland Aber Alles (the greatest) again. He fell in with a relatively small (probably 100-200 person) group of National Socialist (Nazi) right-wingers about 1927. They first met in beer […]

Cheryl Chumley: Confederate statues today, book burnings tomorrow

A crowd of ignorant protesters pulled down a bronze Confederate statue that stood before a county government building in Durham, North Carolina – the angry national backlash to the Charlottesville brouhaha over the Robert E. Lee monument. This is not how civil societies operate. And yet this is what the left has brought, and now […]

Ilan Berman: Beware Iran’s jihadi legion

By Ilan Berman Today, the fight against the Islamic State terrorist group has become a top strategic priority of the United States and its allies in the region.

Walter E. Williams: Women and men are equal

By Walter E. Williams Google fired software engineer James Damore for writing a 10-page memo critical of the company’s diversity policy.

Michael Barone: Google’s ‘tolerance’ requires repression

By Michael Barone Would a fair society have exactly the same percentage of men and women, of whites and blacks and Latinos and Asians, in every line of work and occupational category?

Dr. Jane Orient: John McCain and the partisan farce on “healthcare reform”

Dr. Jane Orient: John McCain and the partisan farce on “healthcare reform”

By Dr. Jane Orient Senator John McCain of Arizona sequentially played the role of superhero, villainous traitor (to Republicans), and savior (to ObamaCare) as the McConnell “skinny repeal” lost by one vote—his.

Phil Richardson: Let’s get out of Afghanistan

By Phil Richardson In the past nine years, there have been 2,386 American military deaths and 20,049 wounded in Afghanistan. There would have many more, if military medicine had not made the advances it has since 1970. Beyond this awful price, what has the $4.79-Trillion the Watson Institute of Brown University says the US has […]

Victor Davis Hanson: 2016 election strengthened American identity

Victor Davis Hanson: 2016 election strengthened American identity

The startling 2016 presidential election weakened the notion of tribal identity rather than a shared American identity. And it may have begun a return to the old idea of unhyphenated Americans. Many working-class voters left the Democratic Party and voted for a billionaire reality-TV star in 2016 because he promised jobs and economic growth first, […]
