Bill O’Reilly, cable news’ most successful nighttime anchor, has been removed from his post at Fox News. The news comes on the heels of a New York Times article reporting that since 2005 Fox News has paid out $13 million in settlements for sexual harassment lawsuits directed against Bill O’Reilly. That report set the
This most unique society, which evolved gradually over millennia, with each successive generation safeguarding and conveying to future generations the distinctive patrimony of its peoplehood, is now in danger of being inundated in the tidal wave of a hostile, alien culture, which has no intention whatsoever to assimilate to the nation of France.
After Attorney General Jeff Sessions made a valiant speech this past week in Nogales, Arizona affirming that the U.S. border should actually be a border, the New York Times was up to its usual hectoring, again dwelling on the issue of sanctuary cities: Mr. Sessions and the homeland security secretary, John Kelly, have

The headline of an opinion in Newsweek awhile back is typical: "America's Getting Less White, and That Will Save It.” "Good!" says the subtext.
Ken Levy, an associate professor of law at Louisiana State University, recently took to the pages of the New York Times to lend his voice to the fevered, en vogue, and media-driven fusillades against Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch and his judicial philosophy: originalism. He also echoed Senator Diane Feinstein who, last week, smeared
