Disturbing Lessons from the Chicago Beating

Tue, Jan 10, 2017  |  by Dennis Prager

Last week, four young blacks — two males, both 18 years old; and two females, 18 and 24 years-old — kidnapped a mentally disabled 18-year-old white boy and tortured him for 24 hours. Among other things, they kicked him, beat him, cut his scalp, made him drink from the toilet and made him kiss the floor while saying he loves black people. During the...

‘The Fourth Way’

Mon, Jan 9, 2017  |  by Hugh Hewitt

Hearings on President-elect Trump’s Cabinet nominees open this week and all should be concluded after a day or two with positive committee votes and rapid floor votes of confirmation. Not a single nominee appears yet to be in any way endangered, and while interest groups on the left are furiously fundraising off of cries of alarm and doom, the “Reid...

Memo to the young DC job seeker

Tue, Jan 3, 2017  |  by Hugh Hewitt

So you want to join the Trump Administration? Be a special assistant to a Cabinet secretary? Carry a briefcase in the White House? I get it. I did too, out of law school and fresh from a clerkship in 1984. And I was lucky — very lucky — to work for two great attorneys general, William French Smith and Edwin Meese, and then White House Counsel Fred Fielding...

Trump’s Singular Advantage

Thu, Dec 29, 2016  |  by Michael Medved

Americans of every outlook can agree on President-elect Donald Trump’s status as a singular political personality, but even some of his most ardent supporters fail to grasp the singular nature of the opportunity that awaits him. Of the last eleven presidents, Trump is the sixth Republican, but he’s the only one of that group to assume power with...

Memo To PEOTUS @realDonaldTrump: #FasterPlease and #TheFourthWay

Thu, Dec 22, 2016  |  by Hugh Hewitt

There’s been a lull in the pace of the stand up of the Trump Administration and the left is using it to try and define the new president and his team.  The response should be #FasterPlease and #TheFourthWay: More appointments at every level and a bigger, broader agenda that surprises and delivers —#TheFourthWay. The incessant mentions of the popular...

Connected Celebrations

Tue, Dec 20, 2016  |  by Michael Medved

This year, the ancient Jewish calendar and the modern secular calendar fall into rare alignment: the first night of Hanukah falls on Christmas Eve. It’s a good time to note similarities between the messages of the Christian and Jewish holidays that begin on the same evening. Both festivals celebrate light—and recognize the miraculous nature of illumination...

Recognizing the “Invisible Hand”

Tue, Dec 20, 2016  |  by Michael Medved

So far, the main criticism of my new book “THE AMERICAN MIRACLE: DIVINE PROVIDENCE IN THE RISE OF THE REPUBLIC,” involves the claim that we’re not unique in seeing God’s special blessing for our country. Don’t the British sing, “God Save the Queen” and don’t many other nations believe in divine favor? The difference is that other nations evolved...

Where Have All the Christmas Decorations Gone? A Meditation on Joyless Secularism

Tue, Dec 20, 2016  |  by Dennis Prager

Where I live (near Los Angeles) you can drive for blocks without seeing a single home with Christmas lights, let alone a manger scene or some other religious decoration. And you can drive miles and see fewer than a dozen. I grew up in Brooklyn, New York, in an area where most residents were either Italian or Jewish. So many homes had Christmas decorations that...

Winter isn’t coming

Mon, Dec 19, 2016  |  by Hugh Hewitt

One more week of Beltway Christmas parties, followed by a week of faith, and football, and then the nation’s capital reconvenes in a still-stunned state. No less an American icon than Henry Winker — from “Happy Days” to “Arrested Development” to a sleigh full of fine films — tweeted a question last week: “Why does our...

On Men Viewing Women as Sex Objects

Tue, Dec 13, 2016  |  by Dennis Prager

My last column was titled “Is Donald Trump a Misogynist?” After reading reactions throughout the internet, I realize how important it is to elaborate on the subject of how men view women. One of the proofs that higher education makes those who attend college more foolish, more naive and often even more ignorant about life than those who never...

Pruitt and Puzder: A pair of brilliant nominees

Mon, Dec 12, 2016  |  by Hugh Hewitt

With two nominations late last week, President-elect Trump has telegraphed seriousness about a frontal assault on the out-of-control regulatory state. Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt is a brilliant, principled, amiable and effective chief legal officer of a state and former state legislator (as well as minor league baseball team owner). He’s also on...

Is Donald Trump a Misogynist?

Tue, Dec 6, 2016  |  by Dennis Prager

You have to marvel at the ease with which our fellow Americans who call themselves progressive label those with whom they differ as sexist, intolerant, xenophobic, homophobic, Islamophobic, racist and bigoted. I always wonder: Do they believe it? Or do they say it because they lack intellectual arguments? I have come to believe that both are true. As a student...
