“Old-Fashioned” Rules No Longer Look So Bad

Tue, Dec 12, 2017  |  by Michael Medved

I occasionally horrify my children and other Millennials with descriptions of university life in previous generations. Until the 1970’s, for instance, female students frequently lived in women-only dormitories with strict rules preventing men from going “upstairs”.  “Gentleman callers” arrived in well-guarded lobbies for study sessions or dates and...

On Jerusalem: Denying Reality, Ignoring History

Thu, Dec 7, 2017  |  by Michael Medved

President Trump described his acceptance of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital as “nothing more than a recognition of reality.” This is exactly right: since the rebirth of the Jewish state 70 years ago, Jerusalem has been the seat of Israeli government and the nation’s leading cultural institutions. Pretending that this status is temporary is like pretending...

Impeachment Obsession Could Damage America & Destroy Democrats

Thu, Dec 7, 2017  |  by Michael Medved

With media focusing on the Jerusalem debate and the Al Franken groping scandal, few Americans noticed a menacing development on the House floor. There, Representative Al Green of Texas pushed ahead with his relentless drive to impeach Donald Trump.

Protecting “Dreamers”; Avoiding Shutdown

Tue, Nov 28, 2017  |  by Michael Medved

Under Obama, Democrats denounced the GOP for using desperate measures to block the president’s agenda—including a 16-day government shutdown in 2013. Now Democrats threaten the same tactics they once decried, and Republicans must pre-empt their key issue: protecting the so-called “Dreamers.” More than 80% of Americans oppose deportation of...

A Great Movie’s Misleading Message

Tue, Nov 28, 2017  |  by Michael Medved

The magnificent new Churchill movie, DARKEST HOUR, easily counts among the year’s best, but a crucial scene sends a message the real Sir Winston would have hated. In the movie, the Prime Minister wavers over starting peace talks with Hitler, and on the way to a cabinet meeting, wanders into the Underground-London’s subway. He asks the opinions of...

The Five Unique Rewards of Marriage

Thu, Nov 16, 2017  |  by Michael Medved

BY DIANE MEDVED Americans tend to revere marriage. Gay couples fought for it, and in June, 2015, the Supreme Court nationalized that right.

As of 2013, just 4.6 percent of women and 4.3 percent of men 70 and older had never been married. In 2014, Pew...

Wed, Nov 8, 2017  |  by Michael Medved

The British parliamentarian Edmund Burke said: “All that is necessary for evil to triumph is that good men do nothing.” That’s especially true in the legal arena, where most lawyers tilt decidedly to the left. Many lavishly-funded organizations use the courts to advance their progressive agenda, with the ACLU—the American Civil Liberties...
