First Debate: ‘Let Biden Be Trump’

Commentary If you thought 2020 couldn’t get any weirder, you must have missed last night’s 90-minute presidential debate. No-Plan Biden Claims Trump Has No Plan For years now, Republicans have correctly said Democrats have no plan other than getting rid of Trump, and no policy…

What Does ‘The Great Reset’ Mean for the US Economy?

The Iguala Massacre: Mexico’s President Versus Beyond-the-Law Elites

Commentary For decades, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador—in North American mediaspeak, AMLO—styled himself as a gifted man of the political left who was … well, special. As a perennial eccentric outsider, AMLO promised to bring Mexico radical change and new prosperity if he were…

Biased Media

Commentary “A pioneer devoted to equality.” That was The Washington Post’s headline about Ruth Bader Ginsburg. But when Justice Antonin Scalia died, the headline was, “Supreme Court conservative dismayed liberals.” When the founder of ISIS was killed, the headline was: “Austere religious scholar at helm…

If You Listened Closely, Joe Biden Said a Worrisome Lot

Commentary The first debate is in the books. It certainly was a rough and tumble affair. If you listened closely, however, you heard all you need to know about the upcoming election and who Joe Biden really is. Keep in mind that debates don’t occur…

The Fall of Mighty Exxon

Commentary A noteworthy milestone in U.S. corporate history happened on Aug. 31: ExxonMobil Corporation was dropped from the Dow Jones Industrial Average (“the Dow”) comprising 30 of the largest, most economically important American corporations.

The Worst Debate Ever Made Worse by the Moderator

Commentary It’s easy to sum up the first presidential debate of 2020. Forget Candy Crowley. Chris Wallace was the worst moderator in recent memory. Clearly biased and argumentative, he was anything but the invisible presence he promised he was going to be. Meanwhile, both candidates…

Supreme Court and Rules of the Game

Cui Bono? Who Benefits From the Preoccupation With Racism?

Free at Last! Free at Last! Thank God Almighty, Free at Last!

Commentary I am now out of the two-week quarantine imposed on me when I returned to England and am free to walk in the street. Honesty compels me to admit, however, that my quarantine was not too terrible an ordeal: there has been, and continues…

Trump, Amy Coney Barrett, and the Art of the Deal

Commentary I have to admit that I haven’t read President Donald Trump’s “Art of the Deal,” but—having completed over a thousand business negotiations myself—I’ve admired his negotiating ability for years. I’ve not always admired the man. However, the more I see his flaws, the more…

A Reminder to American Jews: Civilization Is Fragile

Commentary Yesterday was Yom Kippur, the holiest day in the Jewish calendar. It is meant to be a time of intense self-examination. In light of that, I offer this column. The question I receive more than any other from non-Jews is: Why are so many…

New York Times Biased and Ignorant Reporting on Trump’s Taxes

Commentary The New York Times either doesn’t understand basic accounting, finance, and tax principles, or it simply wants to be extremely biased in its reporting. Either way, the article’s conclusions and insinuations are simply way off base. On Sept. 28, 2020, the New York Times…

Joe Rogan and the Power of Thinking Out Loud

Trump’s Tax Returns Are a Big Ado About Nothing

Bloomberg Should Be Praised for His Generous Offer to Discharged Convicts

Commentary The opposition to Michael Bloomberg’s promise to pay the fines of discharged Florida convicts who still owe assessed fines, in order to enable them to vote in the presidential election, is unjust. Presidential candidate Bloomberg did not distinguish himself other than in terms that…

How the Discourse Is Being Hollowed out in Canada’s Public Square

Commentary Increasingly, it seems, serious thinking in the public square is becoming more unfashionable while at the same time society’s problems are becoming more difficult. Public debate in Canada is being hollowed out, and by the day, the gatekeepers find more ways to limit what…

A Radical Tax Increase Will Reverse the US Recovery

Commentary The U.S. elections should be a warning sign for businesses and families. The introduction of European-style labor rigidities, higher taxes, and large spending programs announced by Joe Biden should remind us of the negative impact on growth and jobs that those same policies created…

The Woke Against Excellence

Commentary As the Woke Revolution continues to sweep through higher education, the conflict keeps getting worse. I don’t mean the political and social tensions that Woke activism creates. The problem is, rather, the contradiction between the Woke mandate of diversity and the university’s dedication to…

An Open Letter to Summit Church on Security

Commentary Dear Summit Church in Naples, Florida, I want you to be safe.  But I was alarmed when I read a recent story posted by Zach Barret of NBC Channel 2 in Fort Myers and Naples, Florida. Zach told the story of your pastor, Jeremiah…

Reality vs. The Narrative

Commentary I think it was Pat Moynihan who said that while you are entitled to your own opinions, your are not entitled to your own facts. I appreciate the sentiment behind Moynihan’s observation. It accommodates freedom of expression while also standing up for that species…

‘Cuties’ and the Cultural Demise

Commentary The “red line” of behaviour that once preserved the ethical foundations of society seems to be rapidly eroding before our eyes. Social media and film have become the  primary progenitors of our culture, so when they endorse and celebrate certain practices, the ripple effect…

The Idea for Pandemic Lockdowns Started With a High School Science Project

Commentary By now, millions of Americans have heard that a flawed computer model helped spur governments to order population-wide lockdowns in response to the coronavirus—a model that assumed such lockdowns would help. Few, however, know the pedigree for this untested belief. The New York Times…

Schools Using Fake ‘History’ to Kill America

Commentary This is part 18 in a series examining education in the United States. Americans educated by government today are, for the most part, hopelessly ignorant of their own nation’s history—and that’s no accident. They’re beyond ignorant when it comes to civics, too. On the…

Basta! Time to Dismantle the FBI

Commentary Fox’s Sean Hannity—Lord love him—has long been in the forefront of the fight to expose the Trump-Russia probe which, we learn increasingly virtually every day, was even more immoral, seditious, and anti-American than we had imagined. Most recently, it has been revealed the sub-source…
