Putting Personality Above Policy

Tue, Jun 20, 2017

Leaders of both political parties and the most prominent voices in media, all make the same mistake that poisons our politics: concentrating on the president’s personality, not his policies. On cable news as well as the neighborhood pub, debates always seem to center on Trump’s character: is he a breath of fresh air who’s appropriately shaking...

Public Opinion and Obamacare

Tue, Jun 20, 2017

In 2010, the health insurance legislation known as “Obamacare” was overwhelmingly unpopular. But Democrats in the White House and Congress pushed it through anyway, and then paid a severe price in the next elections. Today, the health care package known as “Trumpcare” is similarly unpopular, but the Republicans seem determined to pass...

Trump’s Surprising Coalition: Not Just “Deplorables”

Tue, Jun 20, 2017

James T. Hogkinson, the crazed gunman who fired at Republican congressmen in early June, hardly fits the common image of a militant Bernie Sanders Democrat. He was 66, married for 30 years, a proud gun-owner, working in construction and living in a small Midwestern town. In fact, he came close to stereotypes of one of Trump’s blue-collar...

Demonizing, Dehumanizing the Opposition

Thu, Jun 15, 2017

​The context of the brutal assault in Alexandria, Virginia that wounded Congressman Steve Scalise sends an important public message: our elected representatives may wield enormous power but they’re still ordinary Americans who enjoy getting up early on a bright Spring morning to practice for a charity baseball game. The crazed shooter had been so warped...

The Lingering Faith in Faith

Thu, Jun 15, 2017

For sixty years, Gallup has asked about public attitudes toward faith, giving respondents a clear choice: “Do you believe that religion can answer all or most of today’s problems, or that religion is largely old-fashioned and out of date?” In 1957, 82% expressed confidence in religious solutions, while only 11% considered faith old fashioned....

One Sure Thing: Trump Beats Impeachment

Fri, Jun 9, 2017

Despite the public furor surrounding James Comey’s Senate testimony, there remains only one certainty about the future of the Trump administration: the president will not be forced from office through the Constitutional impeachment process. Pundits and politicos who agitate for using that mechanism to end the Age of Trump ignore history, delude themselves and...

Miraculous Victory, Unsettled Dispute

Thu, Jun 8, 2017

  Fifty years ago, the 19-year-old state of Israel won a miraculous, astonishing victory against larger, better equipped forces of Egypt, Syria and Jordan. The Soviet Union lavishly supported the Arab states, while Lyndon Johnson’s America proclaimed strict neutrality as the Jewish state faced annihilation. Israel had to rely on Mirage jets purchased from...

Jerusalem Unified

Thu, Jun 8, 2017

This month—June 2017—marks the 50th anniversary of the unification of Jerusalem as the undivided, eternal capital of the Jewish people. What was the city’s status before Israeli victory in 1967’s Six Day War? At that time, Eastern Jerusalem and the Old City were occupied by Jordan; all Jewish residents had been either killed or driven out, and even...

The Left’s International Collapse

Tue, Jun 6, 2017

If Theresa May wins her expected victory in June’s British elections it will represent the latest evidence of a sweeping international trend: the utter collapse of the old left. Britain’s Labour Party dominated the United Kingdom for 13 years under Tony Blair and Gordon Brown, but with radical leader Jeremy Corbin, it’s struggled for traction and...

Stop the Impeachment Daydreams!

Tue, May 30, 2017

Democrats who prattle endlessly about impeaching President Trump are deluding themselves and damaging the country. Not only do they lack convincing evidence of impeachable “high crimes and misdemeanors” but they also possess no understanding of the lessons of history. Only three presidents have confronted serious impeachment proceedings: Andrew...

Key Health Issue is Personal, Not Political

Tue, May 30, 2017

The United States may lead the world in military and economic power, as well as cultural influence, but we’re also “Number One” in another category: no nation on earth possesses so many citizens who qualify as obese. According to new figures from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, an alarming 38 percent of all Americans...

Realism, Not Bigotry, Colors Response to the Transgendered

Thu, May 25, 2017

A recent Daily Beast column expressed shock and horror at a survey showing that few Americans would ever consider dating a transgendered individual. “Anti-transgender sentiment runs as deep as we always feared it did,” Samantha Allen laments, noting that more than 80 percent of poll respondents rule out the transgendered for a romantic...

Britain’s Most Serious Religious Problem

Thu, May 25, 2017

The horrific Manchester terror attack raises uncomfortable questions about the imperfect integration of Britain’s Muslim minority. A series of such brutal incidents in the United Kingdom involved native-born British subjects, not recent refugees. And despite some fears of Islam’s surging influence, the most recent numbers show that self-identified...

DIANE MEDVED: Why No One Regrets his Divorce

Thu, May 18, 2017

by Diane Medved “Why No One Regrets his Divorce” seems a peculiar statement coming from the author of Don’t Divorce. Isn’t the basis of my book that lots of people regret their divorces, and so there’s good reason to prevent it? However, I’ve learned that already-divorced people–especially those for whom the experience is still fresh and...
