    Question: Why are so many of America’s young people apparently beguiled into despising America’s founding and heritage? I have had scores of Americans ask me that question in the last few months. My inquisitors have been baffled and perplexed as to why so many of our twenty and thirty- something citizens seem to so readily jettison what my questioners cherish as rich, meaningful, and critically important — an American heritage that has fostered and promoted individual human dignity (“All men are created equal”) with divinely imparted inherent rights (“and endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights” including “life, liberty...

  • Broke California wants to fund youth sterilizations and sex changes

    The California Senate will soon consider legislation soon to use taxpayer funds to pay for hormone blockers and sex change operations for minors. The bill, after passing the Senate Health Committee by a 7-1 vote last week, now moves to the Senate Appropriation Committee and then to the floor of the Senate before the end of the month. As noted by numerous health experts, the use of cross-sex hormones and surgeries for adolescents would permanently destroy their reproductive systems, a fact which AB2218 backers seem inclined to ignore. The author, Assemblyman Miguel Santiago (D-Los Angeles), and the other Senators on...

    Things we used to count on as Americans- Because God only knows what will happen if the Democrats win the Presidency 1. Buying decently located real estate was a good investment - under socialism will it be subject to being confiscated by the state? Or will we have forced urbanization? 2. Our kids could choose to further their prospects for success in life through higher education- aside from costs being astronomical we now are subject to the government deciding (for political reasons?) whether colleges can open or not. Also with our litigious society the schools are scared to open and...

    The last time a serious economic downturn hit in 2008, Evan Schade was in high school and the crisis seemed like a news event that happened to other people. This time, as the coronavirus has brought the economy to its knees, it has become a personal affair. When nonessential businesses were closed last month in Kansas City, Mo., where he lives, Mr. Schade, 26, lost his job at a carpet store and almost all of the shifts in his second job at a coffee shop. His girlfriend, Kaitlyn Gardner, 23, was laid off from a different coffee shop. The money...

    On Wednesday morning on “Morning Joe,” Joe Scarborough dismissed a Princeton University professor’s explanation of Bernie Sanders’s electoral appeal despite Sanders’s open, lifelong admiration for socialist dictators.“Who is telling him to continue to defend Castro, to continue to defend the Sandinistas, to continue to defend the Soviets? I think he can check the [polling] crosstabs, it’s doesn’t play well in Charleston,” Scarborough said.“I think two things,” responded panelist Eddie Glaude Jr., chair of the Department of African American Studies at Princeton University. “One, I think it’s Bernie Sanders being true to his brand, that he’s consistent, he’s authentic, that...

    Posts Posted on February 2, 2020 Why Are College Students So Depressed? I enjoy listening to the “Fireside Chats” of Dennis Prager. They’re relaxed, informative, and full of practical wisdom. Recently (in episode 112) he chose to ponder why the rate of depression among college students is the highest ever recorded. Prager provided the following insight:… just about everything that can give you joy and meaning—and they are related—is gone.In large part I think he’s right, at least when you look at college kids as a group. He lists four things that give joy and meaning to life, and...

    In the late fall, Sen. Bernie Sanders came to speak at Georgetown University and was treated like a rock star. He was followed across campus by a hoard of students desperate to get a photo, have a question answered, or even just be near the candidate.Sanders deeply affected many young people in 2016. He energized a passionate millennial base, and it is estimated he won more youth votes than Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton combined. He also gained popularity among many adolescents too young to vote then, but who have since come of legal voting age. This momentum has...

    Bernie Sanders led the Democratic candidate fund-raising pack for the fourth quarter of 2019 with a stellar 34.5 million dollars, much of it coming in small donations. Good for Bernie but bad for us, because, as usual, the group making the largest number of these contributions is teachers. While it’s unclear what percentage of these teachers are kindergarten, college or something in between, it’s highly likely a great many are sympathetic to Bernie’s credo of socialism and are imparting that system, consciously or not, to our children from their early years onwards. Ironically, this comes at a time when evidence...

    Multiple forms of socialism, from hard Stalinism to European redistribution, continue to fail. Russia and China are still struggling with the legacy of genocidal communism. Eastern Europe still suffers after decades of Soviet-imposed socialist chaos. Cuba, Nicaragua, North Korea, and Venezuela are unfree, poor, and failed states. Baathism—a synonym for pan-Arabic socialism—ruined the postwar Middle East. The soft-socialist European Union countries are stagnant and mostly dependent on the U.S. military for their protection. In contrast, current American deregulation, tax cuts, and incentives, and record energy production have given the United States the strongest economy in the world. So why, then,...

    In 2016, Mari Copeny wrote a letter to President Barack Obama to ask him for help addressing a problem in her hometown. Copeny, a resident of Flint, Michigan, wanted Obama to visit the city to address the ongoing water crisis. "I've been doing my best to march in protest and to speak out for all the kids that live here in Flint," Copeny wrote, referring to the city's tainted water supply due to government corner-cutting. She added that she was going to travel to Washington, D.C., for the congressional testimony of Rick Snyder, then the Michigan governor. At the time,...
