Gates, Jobs, Spielberg, Springsteen, Selleck, Bloomberg … and Kaley Cuoco as a Jedi, at the Longines Masters

Monday, October 5th, 2015 - by Kate O'Hare

If you need to mend a broken heart or make a famous last name your own, a show-jumping ring may be just the place to do it. Top international equestrians gathered this past week, October 1 – 4, in the Los Angeles Convention Center for the second annual Longines Masters competition. Among them were Jennifer […]

Sukkot Is a Joyous Family Time

Friday, October 2nd, 2015 - by Arlene Becker Zarmi

If you love the outdoors, love to eat on a patio or love to camp, then you’ll understand why Sukkot (known in English as the Feast of Tabernacles), which began at sundown on September 27th, is one of the most delightful Jewish holidays. The Jewish people were commanded in Leviticus in the Old Testament to do […]

Death Drinks Tea at the White House

Friday, October 2nd, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

Thank God my mother isn’t pro-abortion; otherwise I might not be here. “You’re almost 37,” the doctor told her, “are you sure you want to start all over again?” When that line of thinking comes from a woman who declares she never wants kids, it’s selfish. When it comes from a medical professional, it’s crass. […]

Is ‘Game of Thrones’ Really ‘Progressive’?

Saturday, September 26th, 2015 - by Tyler O'Neil

HBO’s hit show “Game of Thrones” cleaned up at the Emmy Awards last month, and actress Gwendoline Christie praised the show as “progressive.” Christie, who stars in unconventional female roles in each franchise, focused on the “progressive” view of women in “Star Wars” and “Game of Thrones,” contrasting it with the allegedly sexist characterization of women […]

Fraud Is all Around Us and in the Places We Least Suspect

Friday, September 25th, 2015 - by Theodore Dalrymple

There seems to be a lot of fraud these days, but perhaps there always was; maybe it was just that we more naïve in those days. As soon as the Volkswagen scandal broke, the personal injury lawyers were out in force — a group whose activities are usually morally fraudulent if not illegal. Research fraud […]

Time to Ditch Terms Like ‘Islamophobia’

Friday, September 25th, 2015 - by Walter Hudson

Certain terms commonly used in our political and cultural discourse serve only to thwart thinking and halt debate. Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson continues to defend himself against accusations of “Islamophobia,” after recently stating Islam is not compatible with the United States Constitution. But what is “Islamophobia”? In the above video, Ayn Rand Institute senior […]

Don’t Like Gays in ‘Star Wars’? You’re a Homophobe

Monday, September 21st, 2015 - by Tyler O'Neil

Star Wars fans anxious to see “Episode VII: The Force Awakens” get a taste of the new universe in a new book, Chuck Wendig’s Aftermath: Star Wars. But not all fans are rejoicing — many are panning the book for bringing sexual politics into mainstream science fiction. Don’t worry about all the haters, though — […]

The Lessons Lost in the Aftermath of Ann Coulter’s F-Bomb

Monday, September 21st, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

For all of those folks outraged at Ann Coulter’s “f-ing Jews” Tweet during the last Republican debate, I have one simple question: Where were you in 2007 when Ann Coulter expressed the belief that Jews needed to be “perfected” into Christians? There are two cardinal sins goyim can commit: Using the phrase “f-ing Jews” and […]

8 Films to See Before ‘The Hateful Eight’ Hits the Screen

Monday, September 21st, 2015 - by James Jay Carafano

One of the most anticipated movies this December is Quentin Tarantino’s take on the American Western. In his last family-time Christmas outing, the writer, director and producer graced us with Django Unchained, a bitter and bloody look at the Deep South before the Civil War. This holiday season finds him presenting story lines from the […]

The American Luxury Automobile Is Alive and Well

Sunday, September 20th, 2015 - by Andrew Chen

There was a time not too long ago when owning a luxury automobile from an American manufacturer, like Cadillac, Chrysler and Lincoln, elevated your social status and gave you a level of comfort never before seen. But in recent decades, European manufacturers have surpassed domestic automakers in terms of design and quality, and have been […]

3 Things Every Christian Should Hate About the Kentucky Marriage License Spectacle

Saturday, September 19th, 2015 - by Paula Bolyard

I recently wrote: I know that as a conservative-Christian-libertarian-leaning-Republican I’m supposed to pick a side in this Kim Davis controversy. These days, if you’re not 110% in one camp or the other, you’re a traitor and a sell-out. Nuance is for losers. Nevertheless, I’m deeply conflicted about the issue of the county clerk who was […]

3 Reasons Everyone Should Hate the Kentucky Marriage License Debacle

Friday, September 18th, 2015 - by Paula Bolyard

I know that as a conservative-Christian-libertarian-leaning-Republican I’m supposed to pick a side in this Kim Davis controversy. These days, if you’re not 110% in one camp or the other, you’re a traitor and a sell-out. Nuance is for losers. Nevertheless, I’m deeply conflicted about the issue of the county clerk who was hauled off to […]

Dear Millennials: You Impress Me!

Friday, September 18th, 2015 - by Tricia Lott Williford

  Millennials, you impress me. Enough of this talk about today’s generation of college students, young professionals, and young marrieds being out of touch, over-medicated, over-sexed, highly-addicted, aimless, hopeless, and disconnected. I am completing some graduate research on how generations relate to one another–from the Traditionalists, the Baby Boomers, Generation X, and finally, the Millennials, the […]

Christian Blogger: Kim Davis Hasn’t Experienced True Persecution

Thursday, September 10th, 2015 - by Walter Hudson

Here’s a confession. I’m not sure what to think about Kim Davis. I know. How can someone not know what to think about Kim Davis, right? You’re supposed to have an opinion ready to go for a case like this, especially one that’s been in the news for as long as Davis’ defiance has. But […]

George Takei Responds to the Release of Kim Davis

Wednesday, September 9th, 2015 - by Walter Hudson

Kim Davis was sent to jail, ostensibly for violating the rule of law. This while overt lawbreakers from groups like Black Lives Matter, Planned Parenthood, and — ahem — the State Department go unscathed. Actor and gay activist George Takei took to his Facebook page to offer comment on Davis’ release: Well this is a […]

Is Kim Davis a Modern Day Rosa Parks?

Tuesday, September 8th, 2015 - by Walter Hudson

Christian Post author Wallace Henley draws a provocative comparison between Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis and civil rights icon Rosa Parks. Davis has been the subject of scrutiny, and more recently arrest, after refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Henley observes: On December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks had three choices. First, she could […]

Why the Hell Would Anyone Want to Read the Bible?

Tuesday, September 8th, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

The day I came across this Tweet referencing this Gallup poll titled “Majority Say Moral Values Getting Worse“: The age of Obama has led to a real sea change in moral attitudes in a variety of areas. — Avi Woolf (@AviWoolf) September 7, 2015 I also came across this story picked up by IMRA titled […]

Is It Racist to Acknowledge That Blacks and Whites Have Different Experiences?

Monday, September 7th, 2015 - by Walter Hudson

Last week, I offered what I imagined would be an uncontroversial post about the potential casting of Idris Elba – a black actor – to play James Bond. I said that we don’t need a black Bond right now. The character currently being played by Daniel Craig remains fresh and interesting. That character’s racial identity […]

Goddess Worship: Choir Replaces Jesus with Hillary’s Name in Hymn

Saturday, September 5th, 2015 - by Paula Bolyard

“Woke up this morning with my heart stayed on Jesus Hillary…” This is truly one of the creepiest things I’ve seen in a while: A women’s choir called “Voices of the Heart” that brands itself as a “women’s alternative chorus” replaced the name of Jesus in a traditional hymn called “Woke Up This Morning With […]

Abortion Is Hilarious, but Bruce Jenner Jokes Are Off Limits

Friday, September 4th, 2015 - by Megan Fox

Recently, an article titled “Abortion Can and Should be a Laughing Matter, Here’s Why” was published at IJReview. Author Rachel Ryan had just attended a gala event sponsored by pro-abortion fauxminists, where they hired comedians to tell abortion jokes all night. Boy, am I so sorry I missed that girls’ night out! Somebody pour me a […]

Free Market Beats Porn at Hilton

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2015 - by Tyler O'Neil

Hilton Hotels agreed to remove pornography on demand from their locations worldwide a few months ago, due to pressure from consumers and the National Foundation on Sexual Exploitation (NFSE). In a victory against sexual exploitation and for the free market, a worldwide business listened to the concerns of consumers and changed its ways. “We have […]

‘Settled Science’ Is a Myth

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2015 - by Tyler O'Neil

Never trust a politician who quotes “settled science.” It used to be “settled science” that the universe was eternal and static, that fat makes you fat, and that the sun revolves around the earth. Before “global warming,” the scare was “global cooling” — a new Ice Age would end life on earth as we know […]

Comparing Trump to Reagan Should Be a Slappable Offense

Sunday, August 30th, 2015 - by David Forsmark

It’s presidential campaign season again, which means the name Reagan is going to be bandied about, embraced—and taken in vain. From Rick Santorum (who was a back-bench congressman during the Reagan years) practically claiming credit for the Reagan Revolution, to Mike Huckabee repeating “As Ronald Reagan said, ‘Trust but verify’” at the drop of every […]

Jerky Illusions: Uncle Andy’s Unfortunate URL

Saturday, August 29th, 2015 - by J. Christian Adams

The website features delicious-looking high-quality jerky and a pint of dark beer.  Unfortunately, it also has a word illusion.  Uncle Andy’s Jerky is a craft jerky company based in Ft. Collins, Colorado.  The website features photos of high-quality ingredients and an appealing small-business model: The vision for Uncle Andy’s Jerky was born late in the […]
