Why do public opinion surveys show discontent with President Trump’s handling of the economy at a time of record highs in the stock market and record lows in unemployment? The new Gallup Poll gives Trump his highest ratings on the economy, but still shows a clear majority of voters disapproving of his economic record despite the steady growth in the 10...

Americans tend to revere marriage. Gay couples fought for it, and in June, 2015, the Supreme Court nationalized that right. Even though age at first marriage has risen, most everyone aspires to marry, and so far, nearly everyone does.
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...
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...
Recent articles have marveled at the fascination of today’s “millennials” with socialism, but a new survey shows even more alarming disregard for the capitalist system behind America’s prosperity and power.
Polling data from YouGov showed 51% of Americans in their twenties would prefer to live in a country that was “Socialist”...
Whenever we experience a hideous slaughter like the recent assault of a Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, the left indulges an annoying and irrational instinct: calling urgently and self-righteously for minor tweaks in gun laws that would have done nothing to actually avert the horror.
Meanwhile, the right displays its own quirks: refusing to discuss...
Recent charges of sexual harassment have tarnished or destroyed powerful figures in entertainment, journalism and the military. Alleged perpetrators are conservative and leftist, repentant and defiant, but nearly all have one thing in common: they are all male.
Despite politically correct insistence that men and women are indistinguishable, the current crisis...
SUBURBICON, the prestigious new movie release from director George Clooney, features Matt Damon and Juliane Moore with a screenplay co-written by the Oscar-winning Coen brothers.
The film opened with high hopes on more than 2,000 screens, but proved to be a commercial disaster with just $2.8 million on opening weekend. Even more shocking, SUBURBICON got a...
President Trump should install a new sign on his Oval Office desk, one that would remind him of the timeless wisdom in an old Arabic proverb: “The dogs bark, but the caravan moves on.”
Ideally, that message might discourage the leader of the free world from damaging his presidency by responding in kind every time some skeptic in the media, Congress or the...
As a candidate, Donald Trump used a nifty slogan—”Make America Great Again”—to connect the different themes of his agenda. Approaching the end of his first year in office, he needs another slogan to focus on important goals while avoiding destructive distractions.
Perhaps we need a sign on the president’s desk, citing the old Arab proverb:...
A group of students at University of Wisconsin used the recent Indigenous People’s Day to try to discredit Abraham Lincoln. They covered a monumental statue of the 16th President with derisive signs and staged a “Die-In” in front of it.
“Let’s be real,” said a protest leader. “He owned slaves, and ordered the execution...
The liberal author of a recent book praising “The Naughty Nineties” and the influence of the Clintons, came to a surprising conclusion about our ongoing battle of ideas. “I thought the left had triumphed,” David Friend told the New York Times. “I was wrong. The more research I did, I realized how huge the advances on the conservative side were, and how...
Some conservatives expressed dismay, and even a sense of betrayal, over the President’s recent press conference with Mitch McConnell, in which Trump praised the Senate Majority Leader for his loyalty and effectiveness.
What did Trump have in mind, McConnell’s many right-wing critics seemed to wonder? Very likely, he appreciated the Kentucky Senator’s...
Beyond his legislative failures, despite his futile feuds with professional athletes, GOP senators and members of his own Cabinet, in the face of feeble poll numbers and relentless condemnation from prestigious commentators, President Trump could yet preside over four dynamic years of peace, prosperity and progress.
Those who dismiss this optimistic proposition...
The New York Times recently reported on allegations of shameless sexual harassment by Oscar-winning movie mogul Harvey Weinstein from dozens of young women, with expensive settlements paid out to at least eight of them.
In his bizarre response, Weinstein acknowledged that he “caused a lot of pain” and planned to temporarily step back from corporate...
In another inane choice for the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize, the Norwegian Nobel Committee selected an organization known as ICAN—the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons.
The idea of “abolishing” nuclear weapons is absurd, of course: if the world enacted the restrictive treaties proposed by the campaign, then decent, law-abiding...
