Victor Davis Hanson: Trump telling immigrants not to come to U.S. reduced influx

Victor Davis Hanson: Trump telling immigrants not to come to U.S. reduced influx

Deterrence is the strategy of persuading someone in advance not to do something, often by raising the likelihood of punishment. But in the 21st century, we apparently think deterrence is Neanderthal and appeals to the worst aspects of our natures. The alternative view insists that innately nice people respond better to discussion and outreach. History […]

Dennis Prager: The most dangerous addiction of them all: Entitlements

Dennis Prager: The most dangerous addiction of them all: Entitlements

By Dennis Prager All addictions — whether to drugs, alcohol, gambling, sex or cigarettes — are very hard to escape. There is one addiction, however, that may be more difficult than any other to escape, in part because it is not even regarded as an addiction.

Judge Andrew P. Napolitano: Questions for Judge Gorsuch

By Judge Andrew P. Napolitano I have spent this past week watching the Senate Judiciary Committee interrogating U.S. Circuit Judge Neil Gorsuch. Judge Gorsuch is President Donald Trump’s nominee to fill the vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court. The vacancy was created by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia more than 13 months ago. The […]

Michelle Malkin: Bring Assata back ASAP

By Michelle Malkin If FBI agents have time to track down Tom Brady’s stolen Super Bowl jerseys, why can’t they bring back AWOL convicted cop-killer Assata Shakur?

Walter E. Williams: Transgender challenges

Walter E. Williams: Transgender challenges

By Walter E. Williams Determining one’s own sex or that of another used to be a simple matter. First, there was the matter of appearance, whether a person looked like a male or looked like a female. If appearance produced some uncertainties, one could determine sex by examining a person’s birth certificate. If appearance and […]

Michael Barone: Perceptions are that Trump’s policies are working

Michael Barone: Perceptions are that Trump’s policies are working

By Michael Barone Perceptions matter. People make decisions, even life-altering decisions, based on what they perceive as likely to happen. To the extent that public policy affects such decisions, the perception of likely policy change can affect behavior even before the change happens — even if it ends up never happening. Something like that seems […]

Chris Hedges: The dance of death

By Chris Hedges / Popular Resistance The ruling corporate elites no longer seek to build. They seek to destroy. They are agents of death. They crave the unimpeded power to cannibalize the country and pollute and degrade the ecosystem to feed an insatiable lust for wealth, power and hedonism. Wars and military “virtues” are celebrated.

Brandon Smith: Why do leftists and globalists hate tribalism so much?

Brandon Smith: Why do leftists and globalists hate tribalism so much?

By Brandon Smith Over the years I have heard the word “tribalism” used consistently as a way to deride and attack groups with political stances outside the boundaries of globalization. Many readers have been exposed to this propaganda recently as “tribalism” becomes the go-to denouncement of the Trump Administration. From The Atlantic to CNBC to […]

Walter E. Williams: Liberty is not for wimps

Walter E. Williams: Liberty is not for wimps

By Walter E. Williams Most Americans, whether liberal or conservative, Democratic or Republican, do not show much understanding or respect for the principles of personal liberty. We criticize our political leaders, but we must recognize that their behavior simply reflects the values of people who elected them to office. That means we are all to […]

Thomas Sowell: The real lessons of Middlebury College

Thomas Sowell: The real lessons of Middlebury College

By Thomas Sowell Many people seem shocked at the recent savagery of a mob of students at Middlebury College, who rioted to prevent Charles Murray from addressing a student group who had invited him to speak. They also inflicted injuries requiring hospitalization on a woman from the faculty who was with him. Where have all […]
