Radical Prophet

David Horowitz was right about the Left. by Mark Bauerlein – Summer 2018 – Claremont Review of Books In 1987, not long after David Horowitz had completed his transition from ’60s radical to ’80s conservative, he received a letter from an ex-comrade. They’d just had a political argument over the phone, and she wanted to close the conversation with a summary of his renunciation of the hard Left. They had both been Red Diaper babies, classmates at the Sunnyside Progressive School, and children of members of a Communist enclave in Queens. Now, her companion of the barricades had decided to back … Continue reading Radical Prophet

Where Does ‘In God We Trust’ Come From? National Motto Appearing in Public Schools Across America

BY DANIEL AVERY ON 8/6/19 AT 10:27 AM EDT – for My cmnt: I must note that in times of great national distress our leaders have always, since the founding of the country and before, called upon Almighty God (or Providence) to protect us and “look with favor upon our undertakings.” In July, a new law took effect requiring South Dakota public schools to prominently display the phrase “In God We Trust” on school grounds starting in the 2019-2020 academic year. “A prominent location is a school entryway, cafeteria, or other common area where students are most likely to see the … Continue reading Where Does ‘In God We Trust’ Come From?

‘Civil War’ Porn

By Victor Davis Hanson – Aug 18, 2022 9:12 AM – for As President Joe Biden’s polls stagnate and the midterms approach, we are now serially treated to yet another progressive melodrama about the dangers of a supposed impending radical right-wing violent takeover. This time the alleged threat is a Neanderthal desire for a “civil war.” The FBI raid on former President Donald Trump’s Florida home, the dubious rationale for such a historic swoop, and the popular pushback at the FBI and Department of Justice from roughly half the country have further fueled these giddy “civil war” conjectures. Recently … Continue reading ‘Civil War’ Porn

Conservative Ad Highlights Insanity of ‘Men in Girl’s Sports’

By PAUL BOIS – 16 Aug 2022 – for A new political ad from the conservative non-profit group Citizens for Sanity illustrated the insanity of men competing in women’s sports under the guise of transgenderism. The ad features several girl athletes prepping for a big race at a track meet as a narrator expounds upon the intense training regimes they all follow to reach peak performance. “She trains at 6 a.m. every morning,” the narrator says as the young women assemble on the starting line. “She spent years working to shave off seconds. She’s the captain of her school’s team.” … Continue reading Conservative Ad Highlights Insanity of ‘Men in Girl’s Sports’

Big Tent Originalism

Originalism is the most meaningful approach to constitutional interpretation. by Jeremy Rabkin – Summer 2018 – for Claremont Review of Books Ilan Wurman’s valuable new book, A Debt Against the Living, lives up to its subtitle: it offers an “introduction.” Wurman wants to persuade readers that “originalism”—the effort to read the Constitution in accord with its original meaning—is a serious project. And he wants to show that it is, in fact, a much more reasonable approach than alternatives that leave judges free to improvise new meanings based on contemporary fads or priorities, thus defeating the point of a written constitution. At the … Continue reading Big Tent Originalism

A Living Constitution

An interpretive history of the Constitution through ten lives. by Ilya Shapiro – Summer 2018 – for Claremont Review of Books How would you write an interpretive history of the U.S. Constitution? Not a story of the framing and how the founders’ political theories have survived (or not) the test of time, or a chronological exegesis of Supreme Court cases, or even a critique of American constitutionalism from a particular theoretical perspective. Those worthy projects have been done in many forms, but if you wanted to produce an accessible book that addressed the main ideas undergirding our constitutional order as they’ve … Continue reading A Living Constitution

Eight of these schools base admission decisions solely on applicants’ scores on the Specialized High School Admissions Test (SHSAT), developed by an education assessment company under contract to the New York … Continue reading Thomas Sowell’s Inconvenient Truths

Pointers From Portugal on Addiction and the Drug War

Decriminalization involves trade-offs, but treating addiction as a disease yields a clear gain, research suggests. By Austin Frakt – Published Oct. 5, 2020 – for The New York Times Many people point to Portugal as an example for the United States to emulate in dealing with illicit drugs. But Portugal’s experience is often misunderstood. Although it in small amounts in 2001, including heroin and cocaine, that’s different from making them legal. And it did not decriminalize drug trafficking, which would typically involve larger quantities. Portugal’s law removed incarceration, but people caught possessing or using illicit drugs may be penalized by regional panels made … Continue reading Pointers From Portugal on Addiction and the Drug War

Did Physics Kill God?

By Jay W. Richards – Nov 3, 2010 – JAY W. RICHARDS NOVEMBER 3, 2010  INTELLIGENT DESIGN ORIGINAL ARTICLE Stephen Hawking declared that our understanding of physics proves God did not create the universe. Is he right? Stephen Hawking holds the chair of mathematics at Cambridge University once held by Sir Isaac Newton. So when he declared that our understanding of physics shows that God did not create the universe, it was bound to get attention. Summarizing the thesis of his new book, The Grand Design (co-authored with Leonard Mlodinow), Hawking announced: “Because there is a law such as gravity, the universe can … Continue reading Did Physics Kill God?

American Stasi

By Josh Hammer |Posted: Aug 12, 2022 – for Monday’s shocking images of police sirens blaring outside Mar-a-Lago, former President Donald Trump’s magnificent Palm Beach, Florida, estate, will not soon be forgotten. Much has already been said and written about the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago that precipitated those sirens: “outrageous,” “unprecedented,” a “crossing of the Rubicon” moment. Regrettably, all of that is true. The siccing of the national law enforcement apparatus to execute a pre-dawn raid on a top partisan rival — especially when that rival is the head of state’s predecessor and perhaps-likely future opponent — is a … Continue reading American Stasi

There are concerning trends on blood clots and low platelets, not that the authorities will tell you. By Joseph A. Ladapo and Harvey A. Risch – June 22, 2021 1:09 pm – Wall Street Journal One remarkable aspect of the Covid-19 pandemic has been how often unpopular scientific ideas, from the lab-leak theory to the efficacy of masks, were initially dismissed, even ridiculed, only to resurface later in mainstream thinking. Differences of opinion have sometimes been rooted in disagreement over the underlying science. But the more common motivation has been political. Another reversal in thinking may be imminent. Some scientists have raised concerns that the … Continue reading Are Covid Vaccines Riskier Than Advertised?

The only equity they achieve is … Continue reading Biden pushes for ‘equity’ over ‘equality.’ Here’s the difference — and why it matters

How millennials became aggressively illiberal, censorious young adults

From the Lincoln Journal Star – Sunday July 17, 2022 – Opinion page It could be argued that this sign does not belong in public and certainly not on the opinion page of our local newspaper. It also raises the question, why are abortion advocates so vulgar and vile? And this indoctrinating of young girls to believe that killing your baby is a Constitutional right seems a bit beyond the pale. At the very least this could strike one as very questionable parenting. Holding signs at various protests by the Left with pornographic words and images has in the past … Continue reading There’s just so much wrong with this picture

George Washington’s American nationalism. by Carson Holloway – Spring 2022 – the Claremont Review of Books After Donald Trump described himself as a nationalist in 2018, the Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin replied that nationalism is not only “contrary to the principles of a multiethnic, multiracial democracy” but also “antithetical to America’s founding creed.” On this question, however, the preeminent founder, George Washington, had more in common with Trump’s position than Rubin’s. Though Washington never used the term “nationalism,” the nation—its identity, interests, and honor—was central to his statesmanship.
