The Real Glenn Beck


Forbes magazine just published a profile of our favorite talk show host, Glenn Beck. I advise all those who wonder about who the man behind the public mask – the one he wears on radio and on television – is to read it in its entirety. It’s three pages long, but it’s well worth your [...]

The Glenn Beck Program Welcomes … Naomi Wolf?


Third wave feminist Naomi Wolf knows how to speak the Tea Party language, peppering her conversations with talk of tyranny, freedom, the Constitution, and the Founders.

Social Justice as a Code Word for Socialism: Remembering the Young Barack Obama


I’m excited I stumbled over Richard Wolffe’s article, “When Barry Became Barack,” Newsweek, March 31, 2008.  This piece covers the period around when I first met the young Barack Obama, during his sophomore year at Occidental College in Los Angeles.

As Glenn Beck and others (including yours truly) predicted, ACORN is moving ahead full speed with its make-believe dissolution and rebranding.
Nathan Henderson-James, ACORN’s online director, explained ACORN’s latest con in an email. In the Feb. 22 email Henderson-James wrote that ACORN was in its death throes and that a dozen ACORN state chapters reincorporated to seem like [...]

David Frum vs. the Right’s Company Men


David Frum is being criticized and mocked by some prominent conservative thinkers and journalists for engaging in substantive argument and debate. It’s hard to imagine that William F. Buckley, Jr. ever would have countenanced the criticism and derision to which Frum is now being subjected.

Religious Social Justice Advocates Often Have No Idea What Really Causes Poverty – There, I Said It


Earlier this month, Glenn Beck of Fox and Jim Wallis of Sojourners crossed swords over the topic of social justice and the Bible. Beck got things started on his radio show when he said,

Obama’s Big Lie


In this nation of ours founded by tax-hating patriots Americans are now taking to the streets to complain about ObamaCare taxes that will be collected at gunpoint.
The horror!
