Why the Left Doesn’t Care about Bad Economic News

This perception is wrong. It is their goals that are irreconcilable. And until conservatives, independents and the Republican Party understand this, it will not be possible to defeat the left. Take economic indicators. Most conservatives talk and act as if bad economic news disturbs the left as much as it disturbs them. It doesn’t. Almost…

The Oklahoma Heart Vs. the Abolitionist Heart

Last week, Oklahoma authorities botched the execution of a murderer named Clayton Lockett. The execution by lethal injection took more than 40 minutes. According to witnesses, he twitched and gasped and said, “oh, man” after officials had thought he was unconscious. Opponents of the death penalty outdid one another in expressing their outrage. It was…

What Have You Said in Private?

A private recording of racist remarks by the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers, Donald Sterling, in a telephone conversation was released last week. Among other comments, Sterling said to his former mistress, a black Mexican woman known as V. Stiviano: “It bothers me a lot that you want to broadcast that you’re associating with…

If you ask recent graduates of almost any American university what they see when they look at these paintings, chances are that they see something entirely different.

As I have often noted, the most dynamic and influential religion of the past hundred years has not been Christianity, let alone Judaism, the two religions that created the Western world. Nor has it been Islam. It has been Leftism. Leftism has influenced the literary, academic, media, and, therefore, the political elite far more than…

Pope Francis Threatens Hell — Hooray!

Last week, Pope Francis warned Italy’s Mafia leaders that if they continue their evil ways, they will go to hell. Hooray for the pope. More power to him for threatening evil people with hell. I had begun to despair that in my lifetime I would hear such talk from mainstream Christian or Jewish leaders. For…

Noah: One of the Most Moral Stories Ever Told

Next week, the film “Noah” opens. Having taught the Torah (the Five Books of Moses) from the Hebrew for more than 40 years (hundreds of hours are available by download through my website), I consider the biblical flood story one of the world’s most profound moral teachings. As I will show, it means that God…
