American Miracles and President’s Day

Thu, Feb 16, 2017

On the eve of Civil War, Abraham Lincoln concluded his First Inaugural Address with two sentences of incandescent eloquence: “Though passion may have strained it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battlefield and patriot grave to every living heart and hearthstone all over this broad land, will yet swell...

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

Mon, Feb 6, 2017

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

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

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...

Trump’s Singular Advantage

Thu, Dec 29, 2016

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...

Connected Celebrations

Tue, Dec 20, 2016

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

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...

Resist the Temptation of Pointless Press Battles

Mon, Dec 5, 2016

As he prepares to assume power, President-elect Trump and those of us who support his agenda of conservative reform should resist the temptation for pointless battles with the press. Liberal media bias is nothing new, and the most successful conservatives, like Reagan, managed to transcend it. Richard Nixon, on the other hand made a fetish out of fighting with...

How to Improve Health, Well-Being and Marriage

Mon, Dec 5, 2016

A new analysis from the Harvard School of Public Health reports on a powerful pattern of behavior that produces substantial benefits in terms of increased longevity, enhanced physical and emotional well-being and, especially, greater marital stability. Confirming many other previous studies, Professor Tyler J. VanderWeele shows that those who attend religious...
