Notre Dame: An Omen

The symbolism of the burning of Notre Dame Cathedral, the most renowned building in Western civilization, the iconic symbol of Western Christendom, is hard to miss.

Explaining the Left, Part VI: Do Leftists Believe What They Say?

Truth is not a left-wing value.I first discovered this as a graduate student studying the Soviet Union and left-wing ideologies at the Russian Institute of Columbia University School of International Affairs. Everything I have learned since has confirmed this view.Individuals on both the left and right lie. Individuals on both the left and right

In his State of the Union address, President Trump announced, "All Americans can be proud that we have more women in the workforce than ever before."
