Dennis Prager discusses the New York Times profile on PragerU, and while not a hit piece, it does bring even more exposure to PragerU to the Left, who waste no time ripping into Prager in the comment section. The comments about the PragerU profile are most illuminating. The anger, disdain and disgust expressed toward Dennis and PragerU tell a lot about the Left. Not all the comments were negative, though. Some were eloquent in PragerU’s defense.Read More »
New York Times columnist David Brooks wants Democrats to drop their impeachment gambit.
His colleague Bret Stephens wants Democratic presidential candidates to pare down their essentially socialist proposals that would Venezuela-ize the American economy.
And the brothers Emanuel—my former mayor, Rahm and Ari—don’t think it’s a good idea to tell 150 million Americans that even if they like their private health insurance they don’t get to keep it.
And what’s the response?
Elizabeth Warren continues to push her complete set of Marxist fantasies.
Joe Biden calls for fossil fuel company executives—yes—to be imprisoned.
And Pete Buttigieg wants to decriminalize all illegal drugs in the face of the opioid crisis.
As we enter the election year, Democrats are divided into two camps.
One wants to defeat Trump at the ballot box.
The other just wants to exact vengeance on Trump voters.

The new year brings new questions about the Democratic Party and its impeachment obsession. After urgent demands for Trump’s immediate removal, Democrats suddenly slowed down the impeachment process—delaying a Senate trial and hoping to stretch out that proceeding to the beginning of 2020’s primary season.
The Dems mean to focus relentlessly on Trump’s alleged unfitness for office, to keep attention away from their own radical agenda.

The Democrats know that if they make the election a referendum on Trump’s polarizing personality they could possibly win. But: a pitch for votes based on their stridently progressive platform would lose in a landslide.Read More »

Conservatives—and, in particular, Evangelicals—who minimize the importance of President Trump’s judicial appointments betray a naivete about the growing perils to religious liberty in our country today.
Too many do not grasp the sheer number of cases on the religious clauses of the First Amendment that have reached the high court in recent years.
And the cases keep coming:
The court has recently agreed to review decisions by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit on the ability of two Catholic schools in California to operate out of Christian conviction.
The answer from the court will be crucial to the future of religious education across the country.
For those whose faith is crucial to their lives, the “Trump judges” make all the difference in the world.Read More »
