The biggest issue in education…[used to be]…whether “Intelligent Design” should be taught in the nation’s schools. Opponents called it a form of “creationism” and the press dubbed the ensuing legal battle as the biggest clash between faith and science since the Scopes Monkey Trial. In a stinging rebuke to the religious right, a Pennsylvania judge [...]
Editor’s Note: Karl Rove recently wrote in the Wall Street Journal about his biggest mistake during his years in the Bush Administration: not effectively defending the reasons for the Iraq War. Below is the introduction David Horowitz gave Rove when he was a keynote speaker at Restoration Weekend in 2008.
One thing I’ve noticed about presidential [...]
It is not for nothing that George Orwell had to invent terms like “double-think” and “double-speak” to describe the universe totalitarians created. Those who have watched the left as long as I have, understand the impossible task that progressives confront in conducting their crusades. Rhetorically, they are passionate proponents of “equality” but in practice they [...]

A particular bone of our contentions [between Horowitz and his daughter Sarah] was the Kabbalistic concept of a tikkun olam, which means “repair of the world.” I had come to the conclusion that this was an impossible dream, and the refusal to recognize this fact was the source of innumerable miseries that human beings had inflicted [...]

Notwithstanding the emptiness of the [...]
The collapse of Communism in the early Nineties did not lead to an agonizing reappraisal of its radical agendas among many who had supported it in the West. Instead, its survivors set about creating a new socialist international which would unite “social justice” movements, radical environmental groups, leftwing trade unions, and traditional communist parties – [...]
Anti-war leftists of the Sixties may have described themselves as “anarchists” and democratic socialists, but the effect of their anti-war activities was to establish brutal police states inCambodia and Vietnam that slaughtered masses of innocents.

The Islamic terrorist organization Hamas makes no secret of [its] agenda. Its Egyptian founders and Palestinian inspirers were active followers of Adolf Hitler and enthusiasts of the Nazi Holocaust. The founding charter of Hamas, which promises that “Islam will obliterate Israel,” memorializes the Egyptian admirer of Hitler, Hassan al-Banna, as “the martyr…of blessed memory.” The [...]
The Democratic leaders explained their betrayal of a [in Iraq] war they had authorized by saying that they were lied to, that the president “manipulated the intelligence” to fool them into supporting the use of force against Saddam Hussein. But this was in itself the most obvious and biggest lie of the war. Democrats sit [...]
