Eldridge Cleaver was a man who made a significant imprint on our times, and not for the best. But I mourn his passing nonetheless.
I first met Eldridge when he was Ramparts magazines most famous and most bloodthirsty ex-con. “Im perfectly aware that Im in prison, that Im a Negro, that Ive been a rapist,” he [...]

I have had the sad task of writing a just-published book about my daughter Sarah who died at the age of 44 from complications related to a birth condition. No parent should have to bury his child, and the book I have written, which is called A Cracking of the Heart, is naturally about grief [...]

Rarely has the world been afforded such a clear glimpse into the unholy alliance between Islamic extremists and secular radicals in the West. That’s exactly what it got last week when the foremost Imam of the radical Left, Noam Chomsky, bestowed his blessings on the world’s largest terrorist army, the Shiite jihad outfit sponsored by [...]

We wrote Destructive Generation in the mid-Eighties because of the way that Sixties radicalism was continuing to influence how America thought and felt twenty years after the fact.

So why the continuing lies? The reason is this: The truth is too embarrassing. Imagine what it would be like for Betty Friedan (the name actually is Friedman) to admit that as a Jew she opposed America’s entry into the war against Hitler because Stalin told her that it was just [...]

PEOPLE WHO IDENTIFY WITH THE LEFT often ask the following question: How is it possible for decent human beings not to be progressive like us? How can they not share our concern for social justice or the better world we are attempting to create? The answers offered by progressives are that ignorance clouds the understanding [...]

Every movement has its moment of truth. At an “anti-war” teach-in at Columbia last week, Anthropology professor Nicholas De Genova told 3,000 students and faculty, “Peace is not patriotic. Peace is subversive, because peace anticipates a very different world than the one in which we live–a world where the U.S. would have no place.”
De Genova [...]

For his entire adult life, Obama’s closest political allies have been pro-Soviet progressives like state senator Alice Palmer who chose Obama as the politically appropriate figure whom she chose to inherit her state senate seat; or anti-American radicals like Bill Ayers, who organized a terrorist army in the 1970s with the intention of launching a [...]

Obamacare Bill: A Declaration of War


The President was right about one thing. The vote on Obamacare tonight was a historic one. The Democratic Party has in the course of the nine-month health care debate revealed itself to be an anti-democratic Party and an anti-liberty party. It is a party that has demonstrated its contempt for the [...]
