    A Trump Triumph: Focusing on Brutal Gangs, Not Non-Violent Immigrants

    During the busy months of his turbulent presidency, Donald Trump deserves bi-partisan praise for some undeniable triumphs, including dramatic progress against violent gangs that threaten American families. In mid-May, Immigration and Customs Enforcement announced results of an unprecedented anti-gang crackdown, with arrests totaling nearly 1,400. But–despite some of the administration's…

    The Myth of a “Minority-Majority” Future

    The Census Bureau suggests that the population of blacks, Latinos, Asians and mixed-race Americans will soon combine to outnumber non-Hispanic whites, making America for the first time a minority-majority nation. But two prominent sociologists–Herbert Gans and Richard Alba–recently argued that such predictions are probably wrong and any anxiety concerning the…

    Dems’ Gloom May Seal Their Doom

    The Democrats used to bill themselves as the party of unshakable optimism with jaunty, confident presidents like FDR or JFK, “Happy Warriors” like Al Smith and Hubert Humphrey, or the “Man from Hope” himself, Bill Clinton. But a new Pew Research study shows the party of “Happy Days Are Here…

    What Comey Deserved

    It's easy to argue that James Comey deserved to be fired, but the FBI Director didn't deserve to be terminated in the clumsy, abrupt way that he was. General Michael Flynn, accused of far more flagrant misdeeds, got to resign his post as National Security Advisor, but the President never…

    Do college students — and their parents — truly understand how thoroughly left-wing professors dominate the humanities side of academia? Many people know that most professors are liberal, but the degree to which the left wing rules is jaw-dropping. A study published last September in Econ Journal Watch, “Faculty Voter…

    Will the Second Civil War Turn Violent?

    In a recent column, I made the case that Americans are fighting the Second Civil War. The deep chasm that has opened up between the left — not liberals, the left — and the rest of the country is so wide and so unbridgeable that there is no other way…

    Divisions Didn’t Begin With Trump

    Looking back on President Trump's opening months in office, not even the most determined detractors can rightly blame him for dividing the country, since the nation was already deeply divided before he came to office.
