    Stop the Impeachment Daydreams!

    Democrats who prattle endlessly about impeaching President Trump are deluding themselves and damaging the country. Not only do they lack convincing evidence of impeachable “high crimes and misdemeanors” but they also possess no understanding of the lessons of history. Only three presidents have confronted serious impeachment proceedings: Andrew Johnson, Richard…

    Britain’s Most Serious Religious Problem

    The horrific Manchester terror attack raises uncomfortable questions about the imperfect integration of Britain's Muslim minority. A series of such brutal incidents in the United Kingdom involved native-born British subjects, not recent refugees. And despite some fears of Islam's surging influence, the most recent numbers show that self-identified Muslims still…

    Realism, Not Bigotry, Colors Response to the Transgendered

    A recent Daily Beast column expressed shock and horror at a survey showing that few Americans would ever consider dating a transgendered individual. “Anti-transgender sentiment runs as deep as we always feared it did,” Samantha Allen laments, noting that more than 80 percent of poll respondents rule out the transgendered…

    DIANE MEDVED:  Why No One Regrets his Divorce

    by Diane Medved “Why No One Regrets his Divorce” seems a peculiar statement coming from the author of Don't Divorce. Isn't the basis of my book that lots of people regret their divorces, and so there's good reason to prevent it? However, I've learned that already-divorced people–especially those for whom…

    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…

    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. Barack Obama lost control of Congress to the opposition party, barely winning 51 percent in…

    Jerusalem’s Anniversary: Time to Face the Truth

    This June marks the 50th anniversary of the re-unification of Jerusalem following Israel's victory in the Six Day War. Many Americans mistakenly believe that only then, in 1967, did Jerusalem become Israel's capital with a clear Jewish majority. But Jerusalem has always been the seat of Israel's parliament; two-thirds of…
