Harvard’s Flock of Future Leaders

On the eve of President Trump’s departure from office, and following the recent mayhem at the Capitol, Democrats and the left have engaged in what can only be called a feeding frenzy.

Condemning violence doesn’t address the other threat to our republic.

The response to the recent rioting at the U.S. Capitol was immediate, unequivocal, and bipartisan.  Democrats were all too eager to condemn the participants as insurrectionists, to blame Donald Trump, and condemn him, too, as an unhinged provocateur.  It must have given them some measure of satisfaction after the criticism they faced for ignoring and …

One America, Two Perspectives

One America, Two Perceptions

Many are calling the upcoming election the most important in our history.  The two presidential candidates in this election clearly have diametrically opposing views of our country, the problems we face, and the solutions they offer.

Is this the Face of the New Socialist?

Democrats have spent a lot of time in recent years trying to shake off the label of “socialist.” Barack Obama used to brush it aside, scoff at it.  When Joe Biden was asked about it recently, he answered more directly, boasting, “I beat the socialist…Do I look like a socialist?”
