Ilhan Omar: Alinsky Radical

Ilhan Omar’s recent speech at the Council on American-Islamic Relations has received a lot of attention and not without reason. Snippets of the speech have been posted all over social media, most notably on Twitter. The part of her speech that has caused the most righteous anger and incredulity is where the freshman

Denial, Thy Name Is (Fake) Media!

Although the Mueller Report is done and has cleared President Trump of charges of collusion and obstruction of justice, all the facts in the world will not stop the Left and the NeverTrump collective from questioning  that conclusion. So desirous were they of yet another promised “bombshell” that their reactions of utter disbelief

Hollow Globalism Drives Ilhan Omar’s Politics of Affectation

The world,” “the planet,” and “other nations” get a lot of mentions in the speeches of newly elected members of Congress such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.).

Fans of TV’s “Seinfeld” will recall an episode titled “The Apology,” in which George Costanza nearly loses his mind (OK, that happened in almost every episode) because he doesn’t receive an apology he thinks he rightfully deserves.

An Independent America

Who are the friends of America? Who are the real enemies who hate America to the core of its being? In trying to answer these questions, the usual distinctions between conservative and liberal don't apply anymore, especially since Donald Trump has been president. The idea of America is under assault today from those

Sex Workers of America Unite!

Leftist academics in America must be salivating over the current “socialist option” emerging in politics. The indoctrination they have imposed on students is paying off as we see in the example of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who proudly calls herself a “democratic socialist.” But Ocasio-Cortez is not the only millennial who espouses a socialist political

Saving the American Dream

It was winter and the streets of Vienna were covered with snow. The plows were busy for most of the night, and I watched them go up and down the street. I couldn’t sleep because earlier that day, I had had an interview at the American embassy that would determine whether I would

Revenge of the Feminists

So it’s come to this. “Why can’t we hate men?” asks Suzanna Danuta Walters, a professor of sociology and director of the awkwardly named Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies program at Northwestern University. Her question isn’t especially novel—radical feminists have been asking and answering in the affirmative for decades now. What makes Walters’
