At the end of the 2015 school year, a day after his 89th birthday, author and homeschool movement icon Samuel Blumenfeld passed away. In its obituary, the Boston Globe noted, “His mother was […]
If the June 15, 2015 date is correct, the Magna Carta has been with Great Britain for eight centuries. British monarchs succeeding King John have renewed and reissued the charter, […]
Darcy Olsen, CEO and President of the Goldwater Institute, has written a must-read book for anyone facing a serious ailment, The Right to Try: How the Federal Government Prevents Americans from […]
But funny like comedienne funny but not so much as a politician. But as the liberal media keeps covering for her like they did for Billy, just maybe the Democrats will be stuck […]
“Let me make one thing clear: I don’t hate whites. I love whites! I’m white, I grew up in a white family, and I have lots of white friends.”
The latest edition of Reinhild Niebuhr’s 1954 The Irony of American History features a cover page blurb from Mr. Obama giving prevalence (or platitude) to Niebuhr’s influence. Post-World […]
The Vice President is fantastic. If the American voters had a half a brain, they would make him president. But is America exceptional and can it stay that way. And why are the liberals […]
“Everybody’s got a beef.” (2)
This includes author Michael Walsh at his incisive best in his latest work, The Devil’s Pleasure Palace: The […]
With few exceptions, there’s little of what we know of as egalitarianism in the ancient world. Plato, we know, believed in the equality of the sexes; and since some souls were more valuable than others, those souls were more capable of higher development. Aristotle was versed […]
No, you haven’t lost your mind.
Yes, America has.
If someone just 20 years ago had said, for starters, that we’d someday elect an anti-American president who would […]
Kissinger wrote a book on World Order. It is quite informative. A slow read, but chock full of history. Basically world order was meant to be a balance of power between all the super powers. And wars […]

Over time I’ve found that people either like Michael Savage or […]
There is a curious but crucial omission in Day Two of Genesis that appears in each of the other Days; only in Day Two are the words “And God saw …” missing.

Adam Freedman’s timing in publishing A Less Perfect Union: The Case for States’ Rights is fortunate, sorely divided as Americans are in regard to the language of the Declaration, the Constitution, […]
Dr. Henry Bain edits and explains the U.S. Constitution for the modern reader

The book Quartet by Joseph Ellis is a great read. It makes me laugh when people talk about the constitution and preach as though if we educate enough people about the constitution then we can […]
John Gray has been described as a secular prophet, a soothsayer fond of nihilism. If so one should expect prophetic language, secular jeremiads impugning contemporary political theory. His central message is stark. Tear away […]
Remember in 2009 when then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton presented Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov with a poorly translated “reset” button? Or Donald Trump saying recently […]
I enjoyed O’Reilly’s Legends and Lies. And he followed it up with an hour show on each character. So we had bad guys, Good guys, and maybe some psychos. But I always get […]
This article addresses a crucial element in the case to prove the existence of God, but not the final element.

I have written that philosophy is at risk of rendering itself an extravagant academic indulgence. By that I mean it risks becoming so obscure as to be of no relevance to our everyday actions and behavior.
On the philosophy of science, the physicist Steven Weinberg went so far as to say this: “… I found […]

Regardless of your political leaning, it’s probably fair to say that the Bush 43 administration had both some positives and negatives […]
