Dear Celebrities: No One Cares What You Think

We adulate celebrities so much, it’s no wonder they’re under the impression that we care about their political opinions. The truth is, we don’t. In this video, Candace Owens, Director of Urban Development for Turning Point USA, lets unaware celebs in on the reality: no one cares what they think.

Rabbi Chaplain Abraham Avrech, Fourth Yahrtzeit

My father, Rabbi Chaplain Abraham Avrech, z’l, passed away on March 15, 2014, which the Jewish calendar translates into the 13th of Adar. Thus, last night — Jewish holidays begin after sundown — commenced the fourth Yahrzeit, memorial, without my father’s physical presence in this world. My father was 94 years old. He is gone, but […]

Jews and Guns

I am republishing this entry, with some edits, because after the Parkland atrocity—a massive failure of local and federal government and law enforcement at every level—the antigun hysteria of the left, with their photogenic high school commissars in the vanguard, presents a danger to the Second Amendment. Make no mistake about it; the left plans to […]

Mass Shootings: What America Can Learn From Israel

The after-shooting ritual is in full bloom. One side screams at the other—and no one hears anything. Before getting to the article about Israel and the value of the armed citizen, I want to point out that asking the government to solve the problem of mass shootings is both impractical and dangerously utopian. The problem […]

Communist Manifesto or Democratic Party Platform?

 It’s no secret The Democratic Party has a tendency to cozy up to socialists, but how far left have they really become? To find out, Ami Horowitz took to the streets of New York to debut America’s most exciting (and disturbing) game show: Communist Manifesto or Democratic Party Platform!

American Media Cheers Stalinist Propaganda at the Olympics

Ever since President Trump won the election the left has been spreading the dopey fantasy that America is now living in The Handmaid’s Tale. A world where regiments of red clad women live at the whim of a totalitarian state. The recent film, a turgid piece of left wing propaganda (based on a clunky novel […]

Who Will Google Silence Next?

Google and YouTube dominate internet search with over 75% of the market. If you disappear on Google, your ability to voice your opinion disappears too. PragerU is an educational non-profit that has had over 40 of their videos restricted by YouTube. That’s why they have recently filed a lawsuit against the tech giant. This is […]

Facebook Disappears Israel As “Country” Option, Includes IslamoNazi Non-Country ‘Palestine’…

  Karen and I are proud that our cousin, Assemblyman Dov Hikind (he has a D after his name, but in fact he’s a solid Conservative) stands up to Jew-hatred and Jew-Haters at every opportunity. Dov is now calling attention to the fact that Facebook has decided that the Jewish State does not exist. Presumably, […]

President Trump’s SOTU: Americans Are Dreamers Too

In spite of the fact that the speech was too long (any speech that runs longer than 7 minutes is too long) I loved President Trump’s SOTU. It was filled with a love of America, pride in our military, respect for our flag, and an almost mystical vision of the American people and their unique […]

The Second Civil War

Last Sunday, my friend Daniel Greenfield delivered a brilliant speech to the South Carolina Tea Party Coalition Convention. Daniel explains that no matter how many elections Republicans win, the Democrats, which is to say the radical left, always nullify the election by waging a ruthless a culture war that is a toxic mix of Orwellian […]

The Inconvenient Truth About the Republican Party

When you think of the Republican Party, what comes to mind? If you’re like many Americans, you may associate the GOP with racism, sexism, and general inequality. It’s a commonly pushed narrative by left-leaning media and academia, but as former Vanderbilt Professor of Political Science Carol Swain explains, the Republican Party was actually responsible for […]

Protests in Iran Undermine a Key Premise of the Nuclear Deal

I’m pretty sure that most of us agree that a nuclear North Korea is a global threat. Four American administrations and the best and the brightest in the State Department have misread and mishandled the North Koreans at every step. Instead of accepting the obvious fact that some cultures do not share the same values […]

Democrats Go Full Soviet Medical

 Communist regimes have aways made common cause with useful idiot intellectuals to oppress the enemies of the state. The old Soviet Union routinely used morally pliable psychiatrists to make the case for the “insanity” of their opponents. In this way dissidents were imprisoned and, um, treated, which is to say tortured, by state psychiatrists.

How to Turbocharge the American Economy

Roughly half of the United States’ workforce depends on small businesses thriving. But high taxes and intrusive government regulations hurt these businesses and their workers. How would tax cuts for these small businesses benefit the U.S. economy and help just about everyone?

Iran and the Moral Cowards of the Left

Former members of the Obama administration are lining up to lecture President Trump and the rest of us that the best thing to do in support of the oppressed Iranian people is… silence. Was that their position when it came to apartheid South Africa? Of course not.

Berniacs Get Burned by Republican Tax Plan

Would Progressives support the Republican tax bill if they thought it was really a Bernie Sanders proposal? That’s the question filmmaker Ami Horowitz asks in his latest man-on-the-street style interview short. This time he queries passersby in New York’s East Village, a “liberal Mecca,” to see how uninformed and biased people are about the GOP […]
