From the Writings of David Horowitz: January 20, 2010


The lesson I learned from Vietnam was not a lesson in theory but a lesson in practice. Observing this nation go through its worst historical hour from a vantage on the other side of the barricade, I came to understand that democratic values are easily lost and, from the evidence of the past, only rarely [...]

The Good, the Bad and Oliver Stone, Part 2: Hitler Was Only Following the Evil Capitalists’ Orders


Click here for Part 1 of “The Good, the Bad, and Oliver Stone”
Thank heaven we no longer have to rely on scholars and historians, traditionally restricted by a silly standard called objectivity, to explain the past for us and put under-reported world events “in context.” Previously we, like the prisoners in Plato’s metaphorical cave, have [...]

Heather Mac Donald: A Crime Theory Demolished – WSJ.com


The recession of 2008-09 has undercut one of the most destructive social theories that came out of the 1960s: the idea that the root cause of crime lies in income inequality and social injustice. As the economy started shedding jobs in 2008, criminologists and pundits predicted that crime would shoot up, since poverty, as the […]

Rebuttal: My, what Overwhelming Faith you Have in Your Government…


Today NewsReal featured a letter to the editor from progressive writer/activist Pat Ray in which he demanded NewsReal’s managing editor explain what conservatives’ plan is to help the middle class.

Stanley Fish: Sarah Palin Is Coming to Town, NYTimes.com


When I walked into the Strand Bookstore in Manhattan last week, I headed straight for the bright young thing who wore an “Ask Me” button, and asked her to point me to the section of the store where I might find Sarah Palin’s memoir, “Going Rogue: An American Life.” She looked at me as if […]

Big News: Trig Palin Actually Born in Kenya


Eric over at Classical Values had a great response to my recent discussion about Birtherism and it’s crackpot leftist cousin Trig Birtherism (the belief that Sarah Palin’s son Trig is actually her grandson instead of her son.) He also had an important discovery:

The East Anglia Revelations Have Not Changed My Mind, Part 1


On Fox’s Special Report Monday evening, Brit Hume made the central argument against the politics and science of global warming: its proponents have not yet made accurate predictions. Nor have they gotten the concept straight. Is “global warming” or “climate change” the problem?
