Victor Davis Hanson: Wolves in Wolves Clothing

fromAmericanGreatness: The result of a progressive wolf baying proudly as a left-winger is that as we head to the 2018 midterm, progressives may soon blow what should be a big win for the out party in any president’s first term.

Walter E Williams: Attacking Our Nation's Founders

Undermining the Constitution to gain greater control.  During Sen. Bernie Sanders' campaign visit to Liberty University, he told the students that our nation was created on racist principles. Students at a Christian-based university, such as Liberty, do not often hear the founders-as-racists argument. But it is featured at many other universities, ... MORE

Thomas Sowell: Random Thoughts On The Passing Scene

Sparks of brilliance!        The presidential election prospects for the Democrats are so bad this year that only the Republicans can save them — as Republicans have saved them before.  Will a Supreme Court without a single Protestant justice rule that an "under-representation" of any group is evidence of discrimination?  Here is a trick question: What        ...

Andrew Napolitano: Apple's Involuntary Servitude

Liberty and safety are not in equipoise.     There is nothing new in the realization that the Constitution sometimes insulates the criminality of a few in order to protect the privacy of us all.”   -Justice Antonin Scalia (1936-2016).   After the San Bernardino massacre on Dec. 2, 2015, the FBI lawfully acquired the cellphone of one of the killers and     ...

Walter E Williams: Blacks And The Confederacy

The War of 1861 was not about freeing slaves.      Last July, Anthony Hervey, an outspoken black advocate for the Confederate flag, was killed in a car crash. Arlene Barnum, a surviving passenger in the vehicle, told authorities and the media that they had been forced off the road by a carload of "angry young black men" after Hervey,     ... MORE

Walter E Williams: Attacking Our Founders

History, without context, is of negligible value.      Many of my columns speak highly of the wisdom of our nation's founders. Every once in a while, I receive an ugly letter sarcastically asking what do I think of their wisdom declaring blacks "three-fifths of a human." It's difficult to tell whether such a question is prompted by ignorance or is the fruit  ... MORE

John Stossel: Escaping Tyranny

The joy of thinking for yourself.  North Korea is called the "worst place on earth" for good reason. Thousands of people are tortured. Some North Koreans eat rodents to try to survive, and many starve anyway. In winter, they freeze. No one but the dictator has any true freedom, and no one is allowed to leave. One person who understands that is   ... MORE

Walter E Williams: Wasn't Always This Way

A conclusion not supported by the facts.   Academics and public intellectuals, who should know better, attempt to explain the highly visible and publicized pathology witnessed in cities such as Baltimore, Detroit, Chicago, Ferguson and others as a legacy of slavery. The argument is made that the problems encountered by many black Americans  ... MORE

Robert Gore: The Best Novel Nobody Has Read

Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin    is the most well-known American novel that nobody reads. Histories of the Civil War invariably mention its role in stoking abolitionist sentiment, and President Lincoln greeted Stowe as “the little woman who wrote the book that made this great war.” The book’s characters have become part of   ...

Walter E Williams: Historical Ignorance II - The Real Lincoln

We call the war of 1861 the Civil War. But is that right?   A civil war is a struggle between two or more entities trying to take over the central government. Confederate President Jefferson Davis no more sought to take over Washington, D.C., than George Washington sought to take over London in 1776. Both wars, those of 1776 and 1861,      ... MORE
