Note to the Left: Four Years Ago, Conservatives Were Just as Depressed

Tue, Feb 14, 2017  |  by Dennis Prager

Here’s a news flash for Democrats and other Americans on the left: Four years ago, when Barack Obama was re-elected president, conservatives were just as depressed as you are now that Hillary Clinton lost and Donald Trump won. I describe this as news because this undoubtedly surprises many of you. You probably never gave a moment’s thought to how...

Audi: The Car for the Unhappy Woman

Tue, Feb 7, 2017  |  by Dennis Prager

In the Audi Super Bowl ad, a male voice in grave tones says: “What do I tell my daughter? “Do I tell that her grandpa is worth more than her grandma? “That her dad is worth more than her mom? “Do I tell her that despite her education, her drive, her skills, her intelligence, she will automatically be valued as less than every man she ever...

Whatever Happened to “The Party of the Little Guy”?

Mon, Feb 6, 2017  |  by Michael Medved

Democrats have always identified themselves as “the party of the little guy,” but in 2016 they lost tens-of-millions of aggrieved, out-of-luck voters to a boisterous billionaire named Donald Trump. Why? Because of the party’s self-destructive obsession with race and gender. The real dividing line between families that are forging ahead and those who are...

Ordinary Decency Survives—Even on the West Bank

Tue, Jan 31, 2017  |  by Michael Medved

How can a bus crash produce good news? On a rainy night in late January, a public bus filled with Israeli Jews plunged down a ravine near a West Bank Palestinian village. The driver and one of his passengers died, but many others were trapped in the wreckage. A courageous Palestinian family—four men and three women—heard the crash, called for help and rushed...

No, the Embassy Won’t Move to Disputed East Jersulem

Tue, Jan 31, 2017  |  by Michael Medved

Ongoing debate about moving the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem is surrounded by misinformation. One common mistake suggests that the whole city is historically disputed territory between Israelis and Palestinians. That’s not true of Western Jerusalem, built up by returning Jews over the last 150 years, where the bulk of the city’s population lives and...

Tue, Jan 31, 2017  |  by Dennis Prager

Last week, my two stepsons’ father, a man who loved life, killed himself. I would like to tell you why. Two years ago, a 62-year-old father of three named Bruce Graham was standing on an ladder, inspecting his roof for a leak, when it slipped out from under him.

America’s Second Civil War

Tue, Jan 24, 2017  |  by Dennis Prager

It is time for our society to acknowledge a sad truth: America is currently fighting its second Civil War. In fact, with the obvious and enormous exception of attitudes toward slavery, Americans are more divided morally, ideologically and politically today than they were during the Civil War. For that reason, just as the Great War came to be known as World War I...

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...
