Tue, Sep 19, 2017  |  by Dennis Prager

Tomorrow night is Rosh Hashana, one of the two High HoIy Days of Judaism, or “Days of Awe,” as they are called in Hebrew.

Real Life Losses, Abstract Gains

Mon, Sep 18, 2017  |  by Michael Medved

Politicians and the Season of Repentance

Mon, Sep 18, 2017  |  by Michael Medved

Autumn is the season for repentance in the ancient Jewish calendar.  Celebration of the New Year on Thursday and Friday of this week brings the chance to review the twelve months just passed, considering where we fell short and how to do better in the year ahead.

Rank-and-File More Moderate than Expected—In Both Parties

Wed, Sep 13, 2017  |  by Michael Medved

No Rational Explanation for “It”

Wed, Sep 13, 2017  |  by Michael Medved

After a miserable summer for movies, with the box-office down some 15 percent across the board, September brought a big surprise: a modestly budgeted fright-fest with no big names smashed all records for horror films and for September releases in general. It, based on a 1986 Stephen King novel and a 90s TV miniseries, centers on an ageless cannibal clown who...

Leftism Is Not Liberalism

Tue, Sep 12, 2017  |  by Dennis Prager

What is the difference between a leftist and a liberal? Answering this question is vital to understanding the crisis facing America and the West today. Yet few seem able to do it.

Big Events Demand Big (Cooperative) Responses

Wed, Sep 6, 2017  |  by Michael Medved

At key turning points in history, dramatic events seem to come together to force cooperation between even the most reluctant partisans. In the face of devastation from Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma, for instance, even a brief government shutdown became unthinkable, so Republicans and Democrats worked together to provide disaster relief and raise the debt...

Evangelicals for Trump: A Matter of Self-Defense

Wed, Sep 6, 2017  |  by Michael Medved

The sharpest divisions in politics today aren’t based on race or economic status, but on religion. Last year’s exit polls showed 26 percent who described themselves as Evangelical Christians, and they preferred Donald Trump by a crushing margin of 80 to 16 percent. Among the rest of the electorate—the 74 percent who said they were NOT evangelical...

Conservatives in America – Like Marranos in Medieval Spain

Tue, Sep 5, 2017  |  by Dennis Prager

For those unfamiliar with the term, Marranos was the name given to Jews in medieval Spain, especially in the fifteenth century during the Spanish Inquisition, who secretly maintained their Judaism while living as Catholics in public. There is, of course, no Spanish Inquisition in America today – no one is being tortured into confessing what […] The post...
