AG Barr on Radical Democrats, the Disingenuous Media, Systemic Racism, Equal Rule of Law, and More

Mark Levin conducted a wide-ranging interview of AG Bill Barr that aired Sunday night. Barr is perceptive, honest, plain-spoken, and uncowed by the progressive morass he is battling.  The interview, embedded below, is enlightening. Part I — America has fundamentally changed in the past 30 years as radicals have withdrawn

Calling Christ a drag queen pedophile shows what’s wrong with academia

An academic article calling Christ a queer, pedophile drag queen reveals that modern academics know nothing about anything — and then teach it to our kids. I finally got around to reading the article about Holy Cross College professor Tat-Siong Benny Liew, who has some interesting ideas about Jesus Christ (whose resurrection

Middle Eastern Christians: To understand their plight, look to the past

Muslims have recently escalated killing Middle Eastern Christians. Robert Spencer explains the deep historic roots behind this new slaughter. One of the family jokes is that, when the kids used to ask me for help with their history homework, no matter the historic subject at issue, I’d always say either “You

BYU antisemitism Israeli Flag

Does BYU’s online high school gov class promote an antisemitic canard? *UPDATED*

Am I overreacting to think that BYU’s online government class slipped in a gratuitous, classically antisemitic trope about Jews controlling foreign policy? I’ve written before about BYU’s online high school government class and, frankly, didn’t have much nice to say about it. It’s poorly written, poorly structured, and poorly informed.

Western Civilization No Human Sacrifice

Look to the pagans to understand why Western Civilization matters

Without Western Civilization, we veer dangerously close to reverting to our pagan roots — roots watered with the blood of human sacrifice. For millennia, Jews have forbidden human sacrifice. Although there are myriad more sophisticated interpretations examining the Biblical narrative about the Binding of Isaac, the most basic interpretation was

The Bookworm Beat 9/8/17 — the Hurricanes Are Normal edition

Hurricanes are normal, but Trump Derangement Syndrome obscures that fact. Of course, those subject to TDS are deranged in other ways as well. Just look…. Before I get to the meat of this post — or, because it’s a round-up, the various meats of this post — I want to

African-Americans need a Great Awakening to repair their broken culture

Rather than demanding that politicians and white people fix a broken culture, American blacks need a Great Awakening that repairs them from the inside out. A year after requesting Ron Chernow’s Alexander Hamilton from my local library, my copy arrived this morning, and I’ve been reading away. I’ve just reached

Bookworm Beat 6/19/2017: Special Counsels, Fracking and More

A roll up for today to fill the void of Ms. BWR’s absence.  The picture comes from People’s Cube and their latest magazine offering Comey, Trump, the Justice Dept. and Special Counsel Victor Davis Hanson, writing at American Greatness, gives an excellent summation of the progressive jihad aimed at toppling President

Two striking differences between the Islamic and the Judeo-Christian traditions, one of which is happiness

Today, for the first time, I noticed striking differences between the Islamic and Judeo-Christian traditions involving both happiness and predestination. Daniel Greenfield wrote about the interview Chelsea Handler did with Kumail Nanjiani, the Muslim star of HBO’s “Silicon Valley.” He complained that popular culture fails to focus on what fun
