He concluded there is a need for both the maverick individual who seeks to disturb the status quo, as well as the company man who presides over the equilibrium.

Scarlett Jo SNL Skit Begs Question – Are Women Powerful Or Are They Pawns? So, this is funny. Scarlett Johansson plays “Ivanka” in a perfume commercial parody, calling the name of the showcased perfume, “Complicit.” This is to imply, of course, that Ivanka Trump is participating as a quiet, submissive accomplice to the Trump administrations many crimes and scandals.

The American people gave our party unified control of the federal government, and a mandate for meaningful change. After years of talk, we know that the Republican repeal-and-replace effort will soon…

Censorship-9001

As we saw in Part One and Part Two of this series, free speech and liberal arts education are dying or dead at most American colleges, while expressions of Christian faith are increasingly penalized.

I’m supposed to be encouraged, but I’m not. In the aftermath of this month’s violent attack on Charles Murray and a Middlebury professor, I’m supposed to be encouraged, as a supporter of free speech and academic freedom in higher education, that pundits, professors, and writers from across the political spectrum have united to condemn mob censorship.

President Trump made some experts snicker when he explained the delay in unrolling the Republican replacement for Obamacare: “Who knew health care was so complicated?” Pundits who had spent years sweating the details of the many facets of health insurance policy came back at Trump with versions of “Er, hello?

If you want to see political malpractice in action, you don’t have to read Donald Trump’s latest tweet — just look at the mess Republicans have made of repealing and replacing Obamacare.

Democrats find themselves in the odd position of simultaneously suggesting 1. that Donald Trump is a closet anti-Semite and 2. that his son-in-law and close adviser, Jared Kushner, is a nefarious Jewish agent of Israel hoping to turn Washington into the Jewish state’s “Santa Claus.” But first, a detour.
