A Solution to Media and Debate Bias

From the CNBC Debate to Politico’s recent hit piece on Ben Carson, the media’s agenda has been out in the open for the whole country to see. You could have taken three political novices from any high school journalism class in the country and gotten a more professionally moderated debate than you got from CNBC at the end of October.  The moderators acted as if they were corrupt sports referees who agreed to fix the game in favor the Democrats.  They argued with–and lied about–the candidates.  Ted Cruz catapulted himself into serious contention by unloading on the moderators and contrasting media...

The World’s Backwardness toward the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

Another year, another set of terrorist attacks against Israel, another year of the world making excuses for the terrorists.  While the situation in the Middle East is incredibly complex, one thing is apparent: Israelis are some of the only victims of terrorism that are told that their attackers are actually the victims. The world spends more time outraged at Benjamin Netanyahu’s comments on the founder of Palestinian Nationalism’s alliance with of Adolf Hitler than they do at the fact that Mahmoud Abbas claims that European Zionists collaborated with Hitler in the Holocaust.  The Israelis are told by their supposed allies that the reason they are...

No, Bernie, European Socialism Does Not Work

Bernie Sanders and other supporters of “soft socialism” tell us that they think we should be more like Scandinavia.  Putting the fact that Sanders and his wife took their honeymoon in the heart of America’s Cold War enemy aside, the left’s love affair with countries like Sweden needs to end.

Why Boehner Failed

There is an old saying in politics, “If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.”  The heat has become too hot for John Boehner, and he has announced that he is stepping down as Speaker of the House. The reason for Boehner’s downfall is quite simple: His criteria of “getting things done” put him at odds with the conservatives both in and outside of Congress who viewed it was the job of the Republican majority to be the loyal opposition.  Ultimately, Boehner decided to try to counter the media and Democratic narrative of a “Do Nothing Congress” which led to conservative dissent.  The...

Syria and the Consequences of Unseriousness

It has been over a year now since the United States began the bombing campaign against ISIS.  Therefore, it must be asked: what has over 12 months of bombing gotten us? The answer is as tragic as it is infuriating: not much. In recent days, most of the Western world’s attention has been on the wave of people seeking to relocate from Syria to Europe.  Debate has occurred over whether this is a genuine refugee crisis or a refugee crisis in name only, and what do about the situation.  According to the United Nations, the ratio of refugees is almost...
