Dennis Prager invites Caroline Glick, an accomplished student of world affairs, on how the world ought to understand the implications of the recent death of Commander Soleimani and President Trump’s role in undoing Iranian policy of past presidents.Read More »
In the run-up to Christmas, you may have seen coverage of an editorial in Christianity Today by the magazine’s outgoing Editor-in-Chief Mark Galli, calling for the impeachment of President Trump.
The editorial set off a whirlwind.
Galli called the president’s actions with regard to Ukraine, “profoundly immoral.”
“None of the president’s positives,” Galli said, “can balance the moral and political danger we face under a leader of such grossly immoral character.”
Many looking at this have said that what is evident is a split between an evangelical elite against President Trump and populist evangelicals for the president.
I’d argue that there’s a third category—that is American evangelicals who understand fully the moral issues at stake, but who also understand the political context and have made a decision to support President Trump, not out of mere political expediency and certainly not out of naivete, but out of their own analysis of what is at stake.
That analysis, rather than CT’s editorial, is likely to have real impact.Read More »
Late last year the campus newspaper at Yale—the Yale Daily News—published an article highlighting the astounding lack of worldview diversity on America’s college campuses today.
Under the headline, “Faculty Call For Ideological Diversity” the reporters highlighted four professors who made it clear, Yale stifles political discourse. In other respects, Yale has made a push for demographic diversity—race, gender, sexual orientation and the like. But, when it comes to political diversity, there is virtually none.
The numbers for universities in the Northeast are particularly startling: The ratio of liberal professors to conservatives is 28:1, according to the story.
Perhaps the strangest element in all of this is that conservative and Christian parents continue to fight so hard to get their children into schools where the faculty is determined to undermine everything those parents believed and have even taught their children.Read More »
Despite the ever-present media hysteria, it’s become clear that on the issue that really matters, Trump finished 2019 strong. I’m speaking, of course, about the economy. 2019 started with some economic turmoil and uncertainty. The trade war with China created a stock market whiplash and business anxiety.
But the data shows things have finally turned around. Economic confidence has been rising for months. 52 percent of investors approve of Trump’s handling of the economy, compared to just 32 percent who do not approve.
It’s no wonder that stocks have been hitting record highs. After the tax reform bill, the fundamentals of the economy were strong, and market performance reflected that.
That is, until the trade war killed Trump’s would-be boom in the cradle. Now that Trump is again on solid footing, he could be well on his way to victory in 2020 … as long as he steers clear of another trade war.Read More »
