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 […]

Protests Against Planned Parenthood a Sign the Tide Is Turning on Abortion

Wednesday, August 26th, 2015 - by Megan Fox

We’ve heard and seen a lot of horrible things during the exposure of Planned Parenthood this summer.

A national day of protest happened on August 22 and […]

Burqas in Driver’s License Photos Raise Questions

Wednesday, August 26th, 2015 - by Walter Hudson

An International Business Times story from earlier this month has been lurking in my newsfeed. It reports on the state of Illinois allowing Muslims to wear face-concealing burqas in driver’s license photos. My initial reaction was probably the same as most readers. Concealing one’s face on a document of identification proves absurd. No sensible agency should […]

Monday, August 24th, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

This past weekend, the Duggars’ pastor, Ronnie Floyd, preached a sermon about Josh. Go figure.

The 10 Most Underrated Beatles Songs

Saturday, August 22nd, 2015 - by J. Christian Adams

The influence of the Beatles on the culture of the 20th century, and beyond, is second to none. Even 50 years after most Beatles songs were released, dozens continue to play daily in every United States radio market, on television, and in movies.

4 Takes Explaining Why Spy Movies Move Us

Friday, August 21st, 2015 - by James Jay Carafano

There is a hot new spy movie coming to a theater near you.  In Bridge of Spies, Tom Hanks will go from winning World War II to whipping the Cold War. Odds are the film will do very well—in part because the nation that loves liberty also appreciates a little espionage. Nothing says more about us […]

It’s Gotta Be Bad When the Dead Don’t Even Like You

Tuesday, August 18th, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

Elaine requests, “In lieu of flowers, please do not vote for Hillary Clinton”. One line tucked into the bottom of a rather extensive, surprisingly impressive obituary of a New Jersey woman who passed before her time has caught the national eye. And they say everyone in New Jersey votes Democrat. Elaine Fydrych was a lifelong […]

Prologue The precipitating moment comes when the Diente de Dragon cartel kidnaps a school bus full of Laredo, Texas, teens to hold for ransom against the release of trafficker-general Marco Malencio, captured one mile into Nuevo Leon after getting tipped-off about an impending Homeland Security sting. When the bus-snatchers execute the bus driver, Special Operations […]

You Won’t Believe What My Son Was Called for Saying He Loves America and Supports the Police

Monday, August 17th, 2015 - by Paula Bolyard

The same bullies who booed Martin O’Malley off the stage at the Netroots convention a few weeks ago for saying “all lives matter” and the mob that shoved the elderly socialist Bernie Sanders off the stage for basically being too white (I guess?) are now spreading their hateful tentacles into my family. Last week my […]

Filthy, Money-Grubbing Abortion Clinics vs. Compassionate Crisis Pregnancy Centers

Friday, August 14th, 2015 - by Brianna Sharbaugh

I remember the first time I drove past an abortion clinic. Brown, dirt-covered walls, cracks in the pavement, weeds growing up the side of the building — it was not a pretty sight. I could not help but wonder what the inside looked liked, and I questioned how anyone would trust the occupants of such […]

6 Not to Be Missed Serious Spy Movies

Wednesday, August 12th, 2015 - by James Jay Carafano

Hollywood has fallen in love with spies—again. Films are everywhere from Mission Impossible to The Man from U.N.C.L.E., the new James Bond film and well—Spy. These are all the kinds of secret agent celluloid we have seen before. Films that tell us more about our phobias than America’s enemies or movies where spying is just for fun—all sex, […]

From Cars that Kill to Hijacking Your Treadmill

Wednesday, August 12th, 2015 - by James Jay Carafano

At a security conference this week, hackers showed they could shut down the brakes on a corvette. That’s far from the first auto-hacking story.  What makes this incident particularly noteworthy was that the hackers didn’t go after the uber-cool 2015 corvette. No, they hacked a 2013 model. The greatest cyber threats we may face in our everyday lives […]

Debate Wars: the William Buckley-Gore Vidal Debacle Revisited

Monday, August 10th, 2015 - by James Jay Carafano

Way back, when ABC News was a distant third in a three-horse race for ratings, there were only three national broadcast television stations in 1968, and the news team truly had nothing to lose. So while CBS and NBC opted for gavel-to-gavel coverage of the presidential conventions, the suits at ABC performed a programing backflip. […]

The Man from U.N.C.L.E. came out this week. The story follows the adventures of two agents working for a super-secret international organization. Spy-movie popularity has come and gone in Hollywood.

Grand Theft Auto, Cyber-style

Thursday, August 6th, 2015 - by James Jay Carafano

Scientists are seriously trying to prove evildoers can do some mighty malicious stuff to your auto. Some of it sounds straight out of a James Bond movie, like taking control of your car while it’s speeding down the highway. In response, auto-makers have promised to beef-up cyber-security for your dashboard.  A new study, however, hints at what […]

Will Islamophiles Sell Out Their Dogs?

Wednesday, August 5th, 2015 - by Janice Fiamengo

The recent Supreme Court ruling in favor of gay marriage has highlighted once again, as Mark Steyn notes, the precarious alliance between progressives and Muslims: only in the leftist imagination could “a nice chichi gay couple at 27 Elm Street and a fire-breathing imam and his four child brides at 29 Elm Street” be a […]

Parents, Here’s Your Horrifying Infographic of the Day

Tuesday, August 4th, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

Tuesday, August 4th, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

In an interview promoting his new book The Intuitive Parent, Dr. Stephen Camarata balks at “…the marketing frenzy aimed at ensuring educational success, the neuroscience of learning and the heightened anxiety that has made parenting today a competitive sport.” Quite frankly, it’s a refreshing read coming from the world of academia. Camarata, a father of 7, […]

We Can’t Have Kids Because Global Warming and Other Paranoias

Tuesday, August 4th, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

As a Gen-X/Millennial crossover, I have a number of friends who claim they don’t want children of their own. None of them can give a solid reason why. Most of them express fear of puking while pregnant or screwing their kid up for life as if they’re living in a television-reality of their own making. […]

Dear Starbucks, I am a Gold Card member of Starbucks. I love your products and have for many years, specifically the grande mocha with coconut milk, no whip, extra hot. That’s my drink. I am two stars away from receiving a free drink on my Gold Card. I worked hard for that. It’s not easy […]
