  • Mao's Cultural Revolution Offers Lessons for Obama's America

    I was pleasantly surprised to see the media pause for a moment last week to recall China's Cultural Revolution on the 50th anniversary of its regrettable birth. Unlike a lot of the media's silly anniversaries this one is actually worth remembering. If you aren't familiar with the Cultural Revolution just think of Stephen King's "Children of the Corn" being played out in China rather than rural Nebraska. The movement began in 1966 and lasted about ten years. Children rose up against their elders and seized for themselves the reins of power, humiliating their parents and teachers and sometimes even murdering...
  • Yes, Obama's Our Coolest President--And That's the Problem

    Freedom Daily ^ | May 16, 2016 | Benny Huang
    Has there ever been a president cooler than Obama? That's the question that Newsweek, an ostensible "news" magazine, asked last week via Twitter. The tweet featured a picture of the president slapping hands with his friend and political supporter, the rapper Jay Z. It's hard to argue with Newsweek on this one. Obama is cool -- though that alone doesn't make him a great president. When it comes to leaders, coolness and greatness might actually be mutually exclusive. Cool people aren't usually substantive and frequently lack the moral courage to do the right thing when the right thing isn't cool...

I don’t like the stupid GAMES being played by the Republicans, telling Trump that they’re not quite there yet in terms of endorsing his candidacy for the leadership of the Republican Party. Not only is this extremely disrespectful to Trump, which really doesn’t bother me all that much, but, it is otherwise incredibly disrespectful to the people, which bothers me to no end.

    THIS ARTICLE WAS ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED AT FRONTPAGE MAG It takes a certain chutzpah to insist that food lines are actually a good thing--but that's exactly what Bernie Sanders did in 1985 when he was the mayor of Burlington, Vermont. An old video of Sanders, a self-described "democratic" socialist, has surfaced in which he speaks favorably of the Marxist government of Nicaragua. The video was recorded in August of 1985, just weeks after he visited Nicaragua at the invitation of the left-wing junta. Sanders went beyond decrying American involvement in that nation's dirty civil war and actually praised the Soviet-supported Sandinistas,...

    Donald Trump's concept of the federal government's proper role ought to make any conservative cringe. Last week, the GOP's leading candidate answered a question from an Afghanistan veteran named Robert Kitelinger who asked, "In your opinion, what are the top three functions of the United States government?" Trump listed security, healthcare, and education. He said something a little different in August 2015 when he listed his top priorities as the military, veterans and jobs. These two statements are not necessarily irreconcilable of course. In August 2015 he was speaking about what his own priorities as president would be, while in...

    WASHINGTON — A firefighter and the elderly woman he helped save are both recovering at the MedStar Washington Hospital Center in Northwest. The fire started Wednesday afternoon along the 1700 block of Minnesota Avenue in Southeast. “It was intense, very intense,” said D.C. police officer Willie Tabor. “Going up in there, in that smoke, hits you right at first, hits you right in the face.” The officers were flagged down by a resident of the building. They got three residents and a dog out of the building. D.C. firefighter Danny Lovato gave his mask to Phyllis Terrell, who was...

Just weeks after Washington State implemented a new nondiscrimination law that protects "gender identity" a man walked into a women's locker room at a public pool in Seattle, a possibility that liberals had pooh-poohed when passing the bill. Other women were shocked because the man evidenced no outwardly feminine characteristics. This was not a dude carrying a purse and wearing a miniskirt; this was a dude who looked like a dude.

    Ann Coulter’s got a crush and his name is The Donald. The Right’s queen of wit has fallen head over heels for Donald Trump, the candidate who forced the GOP to talk about the issue of illegal immigration. My feelings about Coulter are mixed. I enjoy her columns and always buy her books when they come out, even if I don’t always agree with everything she says. She, like Trump, revels in shocking liberals, which goes a long way toward explaining the attraction. Admittedly, it’s not difficult to shock liberals, who take offense at things like colorblind hiring, the American...

    Wounded American Warrior ^ | January 24, 2016 | Benny Huang
    "I'm really good at killing people," Barack Obama once allegedly said. The origin of the quote is the 2013 book "Double Down" by veteran political journalists Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, who cite unnamed Obama aides as their source. The two reporters have journalistic credits even a liberal would respect--The New Yorker, The Economist, and MSNBC, to name a few. Some people choose not to give the quote credence because its source is anonymous and it wasn't caught on tape. Skepticism surrounding anonymous quotes is of course understandable though I surmise that most doubters have political motives. People who are...

    Two weeks ago Elon Musk told a journalist that humanity had to establish itself on another planet before man-made terrestrial conflicts trapped it. He told GQ: You know, in 1912 they were proclaiming a new age of peace and prosperity, saying that it was a golden age, war was over. And then you had World War I followed by World War II followed by the Cold War. So I think we need to acknowledge that there's certainly a possibility of a third World War, and if that does occur it could be far worse than anything that's happened before. Let's...
