Dan Proft: Kendrick Castillo: Real Man

In our era of entitled youth and young men weakened by safe-spaced college campuses and fears of their own toxicity, it’s easy to fret for America’s future.

And then we are reminded of the existence of resolute, faithful young men prepared to defend to the death the civilized against the barbaric.

Enter Kendrick Castillo.

Castillo is the young man who bum-rushed one of the shooters who opened fire on their Colorado charter school and their 1800 classmates.

Michael Medved: Altering America Beyond Recognition

Every election, candidates claim: “This is the most important election of our lifetime” but that’s generally untrue. For better or worse, no President since Reagan has profoundly transformed the country, but 2020 could well be different.

Democrats seem determined to run on a radical, irresponsible platform that includes the Green New Deal, race-based reparations, Medicare for all, “soak the rich” Tax hikes, and free pre-school and college.

Even worse, Democrats seek permanent rule by discarding the Electoral College, packing the Supreme Court, and destroying conservative media with some version of the discredited “fairness doctrine.” They also seek instant statehood for Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico—guaranteeing four new Democratic Senators. If Democrats sweep both White House and Senate next year, America could be altered beyond recognition – perhaps beyond recovery.
