Ivanka Trump, President Donald Trump’s daughter, and her family have been administered Secret Service protection, for obvious reasons. Both Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner, have positions within the Trump administration as advisors to the president. It would be expected that they treat the Secret Service respectfully. I think you will be surprised to know how …

When the master of Frederick Douglass (1818–1895) discovered that his wife was teaching his 12-year-old slave to read the Bible, he stopped her. “If he learns to read the Bible it will make him ever unfit to be a slave,” her husband said. In no time “he’ll be running away with himself.” In his later …

The news is giddy over the latest march. This time it was the “March for Science” as if most Americans are against science. Once some group claims there’s a problem (whether it’s real or not) the government needs to do something to fix it. And what’s the number one way to save science from the …

Who would have thought that in the buckle of the Bible Belt that a Christian would be forbidden from speaking to other students about the redemptive work of Jesus Christ? But it happened.

An official report on the mass rapes and sexual assaults that occurred in Cologne, Germany, and other German cities over New Year’s acknowledges that Muslim refugees admitted into the country have brought with them the practice known as “taharrush gamea.” Yes, it’s another charming bit of Arabic culture brought to the civilized world by practitioners …

Yes, they actually said “Satanic.” A PBS panel of so-called journalists on the “PBS News Hour” show called Sen. Ted Cruz “Satanic,” then doubled down by likewise labeling Cruz’s father, Rafael, who is an evangelical pastor. New York Times columnist David Brooks was asked a simple question by host Judy Woodruff, whether any of the …

You know what would make a good scientific study? A study about how large segments of the human population have gone certifiably insane because of “science.” You can see them, pretty clearly even if they can’t see it themselves. The hard-core global warming crowd is an obvious one. Folks who think they are the opposite …

  The brilliant Dennis Prager has written an excellent defense of conservatives who demand that “moderate Muslims” take a harder stand against Islamic terrorism. In recent days, liberals have joined with Muslim apologists to decry the idea that Muslims should be asked to stand with us against terrorism and Prager answers these critics well. For …

When it comes to the Cruz family, it’s ‘like father, like son,’ and this is why we love the Cruz’s so much. In a recent speech (or better, a sermon) to fellow evangelicals, the Reverend Rafael Cruz argued that conservatives and Christians must stop giving in to the liberal, politically correct culture of our day. …

One of the more depressing reminders of how short we fall of our potential as a country or even as a species is the odd phenomenon of post-holiday “flash mobs.” In a rash of criminal activity, mobs of young people in at least three states rioted through local malls on the night after Christmas, forcing …

Eujin Jaela Kim is the new principal of PS 169 in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, New York. The 33 year old Asian principal has announced that she is doing a politically correct cleansing of her school.
