State of the Union: “Woe to the People Whose Leader Has No Teacher”


Historically, State of the Union speeches leave no trace. Their impact on presidential approval ratings is nil. Their utility, therefore, is in what they reflect about the presidential character and the presidential course. Last night President Obama gave a speech that was at times quite eloquent, and on occasion rhetorically empty. But at all times […]

Paul D. Ryan: A GOP Road Map for America’s Future – WSJ.com


In tonight’s State of the Union address, President Obama will declare a new found commitment to “fiscal responsibility” to cover the huge spending and debt he and congressional Democrats have run up in his first year in office. But next Monday, when he submits his actual budget, I fear it will rely on gimmickry, commissions, […]

From the Pen of David Horowitz: December 14, 2009


Forty years ago, I wrote the first book about the New Left, which was also a kind of manifesto of our publicly proposed agendas for a more democratic and racially equal America. I say “publicly proposed” because as leftists we knew we could not announce what we really intended which was a socialist revolution in [...]

From the Pen of David Horowitz: December 13, 2009


What can justify the nihilism of the revolutionary agenda? Only a vision of the coming apocalypse.

From the Pen of David Horowitz: December 1, 2009


In the counter-revolutionary year 1989, on the anniversary of the Revolution, a group of protesters raised a banner in Red Square that summed up an epoch: Seventy Years On The Road To Nowhere. They had lived the socialist future and it didn’t work.
 
This epic of human futility reached a climax the same year, when the [...]
