Ramallah: Decadent Café Society or Misogynist, Jihadic Stronghold?


When most people hear the word “Palestine” they immediately think “occupation” and  “oppression.” People imagine that Palestinians are the most impoverished people in the world, living in ramshackle refugee camps—not because their own leaders have stolen their money and forced them into endless war with Israel—but because Israel, is allegedly, a “colonialist,” “apartheid,” and “Nazi” [...]

A Short Defense of … Al Gore?


I don’t know why Tipper and Al Gore have split after after 40 years of marriage and honestly, I hope we don’t find out.
The “celebrity break-up” where the former couple or their friends leak dirt to gossip rags for money and attention is one of the more sickening spectacles of the [...]

Robin Hood: A Conservative Hero


It’s popular these days for conservatives to criticize the defender of the poor and the oppressed, Robin Hood. Hood, they say, is nothing more than a socialist pretending to be a hero. He is, if you will, Karl Marx with a bow and couple of arrows. He steels from the wealthy and gives to the [...]

Reading Rules for Radicals


A couple of weeks ago, I decided to do something I should have done when then-Senator Barack Obama announced he’d run for president : I ordered a copy of Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals.
Of course I realize that Alinsky isn’t exactly the most beloved author and activist among my fellow conservatives. He was a radical [...]

John Cusak Speaks and the Country’s Collective IQ Drops By Listening


A couple hours after getting home from a screening of Hot Tub Time Machine (don’t worry, it doesn’t top The Hangover, as if it had a chance) I found a gem of a quote from one of its stars. I thought the film was nothing more than a fair escapist comedy full of 80’s references [...]

From the Writings of David Horowitz: March 16, 2010


ON THE MORNING OF THE ATTACKS on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, along with a million other readers of the New York Times including many who would never be able to read the paper again, I opened its pages to be confronted by a color photo showing a middle-aged couple holding hands and affecting [...]

I Now Pronounce You Wusband and Hife


What does it mean to be a husband? Newlywed Carrie Sloan isn’t exactly sure, but it’s got something to do with leaving dirty socks on the floor, bat-out-of-hell driving habits, and a man-sized butt print on a La-Z-Boy recliner.
Not that she buys into gender stereotypes or anything.
And what about being a wife?  Sloan, the [...]

Obamacare Gets Even Sicker


Obamacare was on life support after the election of Senator Scott Brown but President Obama is trying to resuscitate it.   After a couple of weeks of pretending to make jobs his number one priority for 2010, Obama is pushing hard again on his favorite big government program against the wishes of the majority of the American [...]

Democrats: The Buck Stops…uh, Somewhere…


…clearly, anywhere but with the big guy himself.
That’s the conclusion Sean Hannity and Mark Steyn drew the other night, in reaction to Virginia’s former Democrat Governor, L. Douglas Wilder, who recently wrote that President Barack Obama “must overhaul his own team, replacing the admittedly brilliant advisers who helped elect him with others more capable of [...]
