Harlem NY Charter School Triumphs Despite Odds


As a board member with the Opportunity Charter School (OCS) in Harlem, New York, I’m familiar with the challenges facing children in an urban community.
This is especially true for children who have learning disabilities.  At OCS, students are taught with a focus on their individual learning needs.  Parents are grateful that their child is part [...]

Uber-Scary ‘Pro-Life’ Super Bowl Ad, Feminist Lunacy


“Feminist lunacy” is sort of redundant. As for the ad itself, you might want to remove any children (who you’ve been “punished” by) from the room before watching this uber scary video. This is the pre-game ad from Pam and Tim Tebow and Focus on the Family that caused such consternation from Feminists. The second ad was [...]

David B. Rivkin Jr. and Marc A. Thiessen: A Tale of Two Terrorists – WSJ.com


The Obama administration’s decision to read the Christmas Day bomber his Miranda rights has rightly come under withering criticism. Instead of a lengthy interrogation by officials with al Qaeda expertise, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was questioned for 50 minutes by local FBI agents and then later advised of his “right to remain silent.”It’s well understood that […]

George Will and the Left’s Hypocrisy over Citizens United


With the SOTU already well-covered here at NewsReal, we will take a narrower focus. George Will’s column in today’s Washington Post must have been written before the President’s speech, but it delivers a stinging rebuke to one of Obama’s talking points, as well as the leftist media’s phony outrage over the recent Citizens United v. [...]

Big government: Stop! – The Economist


IN THE aftermath of the Senate election in Massachusetts, the focus of attention is inevitably on what it means for Barack Obama. The impact on the Democratic president of the loss of the late Ted Kennedy’s seat to the Republicans will, no doubt, be significant (see article). Yet the result could be remembered as a […]

Dick Cheney: Conservative of the Year – HUMAN EVENTS


In Washingtonian “inside the Beltway” terms, the most amazing aspect of former Vice President Dick Cheney’s new clout is that he is achieving it the old-fashioned way: talking about public policy. He is not running for President or any other office. He has not formed a PAC or a D.C. lobbying firm. He is not […]

FCC ‘not carrying out secret plot funded by George Soros’ to silence ‘right wing haters.’ Phew!


I rarely find sarcasm reassuring.
So what to make of a speech given last Monday, by the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) new chief diversity officer? Mark Lloyd told that meeting of the Media Access Project (MAP):
I am not a Czar appointed by President Obama. I am not at the FCC to restore the Fairness Doctrine through [...]

Jaws Summit


I’m trying to come up with a yardstick to measure the incompetence of the Obama administration — and failing.
And it’s political incompetence I’m talking about. You come into office in the midst of the biggest financial crisis in decades and facing what you at least are telling the public the threat of a general economic [...]
