PBS Misremembers William F. Buckley Jr.

April 12th, 2024 8:37 AM

Imagine making a documentary about one of the 20th century’s leading opponents of the Ku Klux Klan — without ever talking about the evil of the KKK itself. If that sounds like malpractice, consider PBS’s new documentary on the life of William F. Buckley Jr. “The Incomparable Mr. Buckley,” the latest installment in the “American Masters” series, has much to say about anti-Communism but never…

Americans Are Not Seeking Out Middle Ground

April 11th, 2024 8:42 AM

A Wall Street Journal opinion piece by Sen. Mitt Romney regarding the demise of the No Labels political party initiative tells us as much about Romney, and why he failed to ever become a national leader, as it does about the failure of the No Labels effort. No Labels defined its mission “to support centrism and bipartisanship.” Romney defines this effort as seeking out the “sensible…

America Is Now in the Business of Losing Wars

April 10th, 2024 11:25 AM

On Oct. 7, thousands of members of the terrorist group Hamas and its “civilian” friends broke through the barrier between the Gaza Strip and Israel and proceeded to torture, rape and slaughter at least 1,200 Israeli people. They burned their homes, killed their children in front of them and then kidnapped some 250 Israelis back to Gaza, where they planted themselves in terror tunnels built…

When Will the Cop Killings End?

April 10th, 2024 9:27 AM

Another day, another dead New York City police officer, another grieving widow. The familiarity of these incidents should breed more than contempt. Instead, we get meaningless condemnations from politicians who are responsible for putting district attorneys in office that do not protect the public. Too many of them release career criminals, some of whom commit new crimes, including the murder…

6 Myths About Globalization, Trade, Jobs, and ‘Buy American’

April 8th, 2024 10:13 AM

Leaders of both parties agree: We must reduce globalization. “China is ripping us on trade,” says Donald Trump. Our trade deficit is “an immorality,” says Nancy Pelosi. But it’s not. In my new video, Scott Lincicome of the Cato Institute points out, “Selling us stuff is hardly ripping us off.” He’s right. Our video debunks common misunderstandings about trade.

Ben Shapiro: The Cut Flowers Civilization

April 5th, 2024 4:54 PM

This week, famed atheist Richard Dawkins explained that he was a “cultural Christian.” Praising his civilization, Dawkins stated, “I do think that we are culturally a Christian country. I call myself a cultural Christian. I’m not a believer. But there is a distinction between being a believing Christian and being a cultural Christian. And so you know I love hymns and Christmas carols, and I…

Liberals Love the Minimum Wage — Though It Hurts People Liberals Love

April 5th, 2024 2:41 PM

On April 1, the new California $20-per-hour minimum wage for fast-food workers went into effect. In signing the bill, California Gov. Gavin Newsom rejected the view that such a wage hike — 25% above the state’s current minimum wage — hurts teenagers who disproportionately benefit from fast-food jobs and for whom this becomes their entry into the job market. Newsom said: “That’s a romanticized…

Why Do Americans, UN Support Hamas Terrorists?

April 5th, 2024 8:57 AM

Most recent Gallup polling in March shows that 36% of Americans “approve of Israeli military action in Gaza” and 50% disapprove. Last November, a month after the Hamas terrorist attack in Israel that claimed the lives of more than 1,200 innocent Israeli civilians, 55% approved of the military action that Israel initiated. What has happened over the last few months that now barely more than a…

Who Wants to Be House Speaker?

April 4th, 2024 4:56 PM

Mel Brooks said it’s good to be the king — but is it good to be speaker of the House of Representatives? You’re the most powerful legislator in Congress, if not the world, and just two heartbeats away from being president. If you’re a Republican, though, your task is thankless and possibly hopeless. It looks that way for Speaker Mike Johnson right now.

One More Try at Reducing the Debt

April 4th, 2024 10:28 AM

“Neither a borrower nor a lender be.”– Polonius to his son Laertes in “Hamlet” It may be too late given the number of Americans who have willingly allowed themselves to become dependent on government more than themselves, but it’s worth trying. Our $34 trillion debt is unsustainable, according to most economists. If we don’t act soon, we will be worse off than we are now. Our economy…

The Biden Middle East Delusion

April 2nd, 2024 4:39 PM

This week, the Biden administration took the first step toward what appears to be an inevitable break with Israel in Israel's war to extirpate the terrorist group Hamas from the Gaza Strip. Since Hamas' vicious terror assault on Israel on Oct. 7 -- an attack that killed at least 1,200 Israelis and left 250 Israeli hostages in Hamas' hands -- Israel has taken extraordinary measures to protect…

MRC’s Houck Joins Newsmax to Slam Anti-Trump Screed from Rory Kennedy

April 2nd, 2024 11:13 AM

In a truncated segment on Monday’s Eric Bolling The Balance (due to the previous segment with GOP House Speaker Mike Johnson), NewsBusters Managing Editor Curtis Houck said the meltdowns from Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s sister Rory Kennedy and others over his independent presidential campaign are proof the press have decided they can only fear-monger voters into casting ballots for Biden…

Recapturing Our Lost and Disillusioned Youth

April 1st, 2024 5:21 PM

Our nation’s Declaration of Independence begins with the famous statement that “all men ... are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” But according to the latest Gallup World Happiness Report, Americans’ success in the “pursuit of happiness” is diminishing. For the first time since the annual report was first…
