Jerry Bowyer: A Lesson for Democrats

The news coming out of the election in the U.K. is huge.

The question in our country is simple: Are the Democrats paying attention?

Jeremy Corbyn, the radical leader of Britain’s Labour Party, just led his party to its greatest defeat in nearly 100 years. He ran on a platform of complete, unrestrained left-wing insanity.

British politics tends to be a few years ahead of American politics. Thatcher preceded Reagan, Blair preceded Bush and Boris Johnson preceded Trump.

So Democrats should be listening. As it turns out, completely unmitigated left-wing insanity isn’t an enticing deal for coal miners. The industrial labor class is not likely to vote for candidates promising de-industrialization and massive tax hikes to pay for free college.

If the Democratic leadership wants to win, they should hit the brakes, and cut out AOC and her Corbynista pals. The alternative is political irrelevance.

Hugh Hewitt: The Election You Need to Be Watching

Our nation’s election is still eleven months out. We all should be watching closely as an election of enormous consequence unfolds in the United Kingdom on Thursday.

If Boris Johnson is returned to No. 10 Downing Street with a strong Conservative majority in Parliament, the United Kingdom can finally and with certainty be free of the European Union.

With such a win, the bureaucrats of Brussels will have received a lesson they will not easily forget.

Indeed, the stakes are high:

The free world requires economic growth and military preparedness. Johnson is committed to free markets and to maintaining and expanding the British military, especially its fleet of four Vanguard-class submarines that make up a crucial part of the West’s nuclear deterrent.

The U.S. needs the strength that would come from a U.K finally disentangled from the E.U.

I am rooting for Boris Johnson and the Tories, and you should be too.

Albert Mohler: Even More Secular Than We Knew


One of the most well-documented irrefutable trends of our times is the continued secularization of Western societies. A new study has come out about young people in Europe indicating that the future may be even more secular than we knew.

Commenting on the report, Steven Bullivant of St. Mary’s University in London says,

“With some notable exceptions, young adults increasingly are not identifying with or practicing religion. Christianity as a default, as a norm, is gone and probably gone for good or at least for the next 100 years.”

In the United States, we are ourselves looking at a speeded up velocity of this secularization, due to the political and moral change in the coming generations of the millennials and those identified now as Generation Z.
