Michael Medved: An American Victim of Terrorism


Fifty years ago, supporters of Robert Kennedy’s presidential campaign gathered for a victory party after a hard-fought California primary. For those of us who were there at LA’s Ambassador Hotel that fatal night, it became one of the most searing experiences of our lives. In retrospect, it’s surprising that media paid so little attention to the Palestinian identity and terrorist intentions of RFK’s killer—Sirhan Sirhan. Contemporary press accounts often labeled him as Jordanian, not Palestinian, since he had emigrated with his family from Jordanian-occupied Jerusalem in 1956.

He never lived in Palestine since a separate nation of that name never existed. His violence against Kennedy may have been irrational, but its motive is no mystery: an obsessive hatred of the Jewish state and its American supporters.

Jerry Bowyer: Looking Past the Millennials


Despite the constant assertions from the media that young people are left-wing, a Gallup study showed that more teens identified as conservative than liberal. Perhaps this is because people, especially teenagers like to push back against authority. The Millennials are left wing because they grew up during the Bush administration. But the Post-Millennials, also known as Generation Z grew up during the Obama administration, amidst a climate of political correctness among many of their teachers.

Gen Z does not watch CNN and MSNBC; they watch YouTube. And YouTube political commentary is dominated by conservatives like Ben Shapiro and Candace Owens and Jordan Peterson.

So don’t be worried when you hear about Millennial support for Sanders and socialism. That’s old news. The generation after them is leaning right.

Michael Medved: Overruling the Anti-Business Left


Why would any city punish the biggest companies in town by imposing a tax on every job those businesses create? That’s the question raised by a bi-partisan coalition seeking to overturn the newly imposed “Head Tax” in Seattle. The effort to repeal this obnoxious scheme in a voter referendum has already drawn strong support.

Meanwhile, nearby Tacoma isn’t hesitating with its own effort to lure frustrated Seattle businesses to relocate to a friendlier environment: instead of a new tax of $275 per job, they’d get a $275 tax credit for each new job. While Seattle leftists punish job creators to fund more homeless services, engaged voters and free market incentives can still overrule them.

Hugh Hewitt: At Last A Push for 350-Ship Navy


President Trump has put a big number on a big board: 355 ships on the American fleet.It’s a big jump from the 280 or so presently afloat. The president doubled down at the graduation of Annapolis Midshipmen last week promising 355 ships soon, as he did on the deck of the carrier Ford in 2017:as he did at the Philadelphia Shipyard in 2016

This is a promise three times repeated, 350 ships. The Italians will build at least two of these powerful parts of the fleet in Wisconsin, as soon as the Pentagon says proceed to them or to somebody else. That’s what the Pentagon needs to do right now. The president has made it his word. He has promised. It can be done. But OMB and the Pentagon now need to recognize who is the president and to follow his wishes.
