Michael Medved: A Popular but Under-Rated Genius: Herman Wouk

On May 17th, America lost one of the 20th Century’s most significant, popular but under-rated writers, when Herman Wouk died just ten days before his 104th birthday. Author of “The Caine Mutiny,” “Marjorie Morningstar,” “Winds of War” and “War and Remembrance,” nobody could deny this Pulitzer Prize-winner’s gifts as a story teller.

But as a World War II Naval officer, his America-loving, pro-military and richly religious themes led the critical establishment to frequently denigrate his work. His perennial best-seller “This Is My God” remains the best single-volume introduction to Jewish faith and Wouk, a Talmud scholar of profound insight, showed that vigorous observance and artistic achievement—in literature, on Broadway, and even in Hollywood—can flourish together.

Wouk will be deeply missed and richly deserves the traditional Jewish tribute—“Zecher Tzadik Livracha”–may the memory of the righteous be blessed.

Katie Pavlich: Bad Faith Actors in Iran

As we pass the one year anniversary of President Trump officially pulling out of the Iran nuclear agreement, the Islamic Republic is proving exactly why he was right to do so.

Despite the pro-Iran deal and the claims of the Obama echo chamber, the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism hasn’t changed.

They continue to pump money into terrorist organizations like Hezbollah and Hamas in the Middle East—but also in South America. They are also funding proxy groups—like those in Yemen who continue to attack civilian targets in Saudi Arabia.

They’ve operated in bad faith and lied about their intentions to obtain a nuclear weapon. Not to mention their role in the killing of at least 600 Americans in Iraq.

The Trump administration is right to respond with a maximum pressure campaign to punish Iran for its behavior—and it’s working. President Trump, unlike many before him, is working to deter behavior rather than enable it.

Hugh Hewitt: Who’s to Blame in Tensions With Iran?

The Trump administration deserves some credit for seeing Iran clearly.

President Obama did not. His efforts to lure Ayatollah Khomeini into changing the behavior of his rogue regime never had a chance because it began from the premise that appeasement works, but appeasement never does work.

Not with Iran. Not with Russia and the famous “reset” button. And not in the 1994 deal with North Korea.

The appeasement policies of Obama have been abandoned. Good!

Iran is dangerously close to provoking a conflict—and most U.S. media outlets are far behind the news curve.

President Trump has been ably served by National Security Advisor John Bolton—as well as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Both rightly believe that Iran was, is and will remain a rogue regime as long as the radical theocrats remain in power.

It’s not about Bolton or Pompeo.

It’s about the mullahs in Tehran. It has been since 1979.

Albert Mohler: Abortion May Well Be Before the Supreme Court Soon

The intensity of the abortion debate in the United States has reached a new level as Alabama’s governor, Kay Ivey, has signed a bill banning virtually all abortion in the state.

The overwhelming national response indicates that we have now reached a new moment in America’s conflict between the powerful forces for abortion and powerful forces against abortion.

It would not be an exaggeration to say that the map of America when you look at the question of abortion reflects an intensity and a polarization hauntingly like the map of the United States before the Civil War.

In recent decades, the pro-life movement has sought to chip away the logic of Roe v. Wade. There’s no “chipping away” here: Alabama’s move is a direct challenge to Roe.

Stay tuned.

One way or another, the issue of abortion may well be before the Supreme Court, and very soon.
