In the midst of their seemingly endless and unpredictable fight for the 2020 presidential nomination, does it make sense for Democrats to promote some of their least likable Congressional leaders as the new face of their party?
The result of the new impeachment investigation, assigned to six different House committees, is that the leaders of those committees—including Maxine Waters, Jerry Nadler, Adam Schiff and Elijah Cummings—will dominate the debate and upstage the flailing presidential contenders.
As it happens, all six chairs are from New York, California, Maryland and Massachusetts, perfectly positioned to alienate key suburban voters in swing states that will decide the outcome of the election. The impeachment pursuit elevates some of the Democrats’ least appealing proponents to positions of pre-eminence, helping to ensure party losses in the upcoming battles for control of the House, the Senate and the White House.Read More »
Those who call for personal change—like Christian ministers—are now being told they need to change.
In California, the State Senate continues to push a resolution that condemns religious leaders and counselors who teach the historic positions of their respective faiths.
Such teaching, we’re told, is “harmful” towards those drawn to alternative lifestyles—including those different views on sex and gender.
But: The call to personal transformation is found at the very root of Christian theology—and Christianity is not alone in promoting the idea that people are flawed and in need of personal transformation.
America has long recognized the value of such perspectives. But today, First Amendment-protected religious liberty is under fire. Ironically, those who encourage others to change spiritually are now being told they need to change.
People are free to disagree with the message of the minister.
They ought not try to silence that minister.Read More »
Liberals have used the courts for decades to carry out their agenda of social change. From Roe vs. Wade’s constitutional right to abortion to the more recent protection of same-sex marriage, courts have become an engine of social change.
The death penalty seems to be the next target for social change, either through the courts or by governors. When the U.S. Department of Justice recently announced it would resume carrying out the federal death penalty, presidential candidate Kamala Harris attacked it as “immoral and deeply flawed” while Joe Biden reversed yet one more long-held position and said it was wrong.
Meanwhile in California, even though voters twice upheld the death penalty, Governor Gavin Newsom has suspended it.
Questions like the death penalty should be decided by the people and their elected representatives, not by elite courts and lone ranger governors who think they know better.Read More »

The state of California is now considering an ethnic studies curriculum for the public schools—and we should all take notice.
For decades, California has had an outsize influence on such things as curriculum and textbooks because if a textbook is adopted in California, it’s likely also to be adopted elsewhere.
I knew this proposed curriculum would be bad. But it’s even worse than I imagined.
Capitalism is presented as racist.
The English language is re-tooled. The word “history,” for example, is abandoned because it contains the oppressive word “his”—which is too rigid, representing a “gender binarist” approach to telling history.
Academic disciplines are turned upside down and inside out.
The proposed curriculum itself makes it very clear what the objective is: the absolute social transformation of the United States.
In essence, we’re looking at not only a new curriculum, but the rewriting of history, and a redefining of reality.Read More »
