    Fact Check: Yes, Joe Biden Is Dumb

    Rudy Giuliani stated in an interview with the Huffington Post,  “Joe Biden is a moron. I’m calling Joe Biden a mentally deficient idiot.”

    Since he was talking to HuffPo, he had to clarify. “I meant he’s dumb,”

    Is Joe Biden mentally deficient? According to Biden, he has a very high IQ.

    In the above video, taken at April 3, 1987 campaign stop in Claremont, New Hampshire, Biden can be seen sparring with a voter who questioned his academic credentials. Biden responded, “I think I have a much higher I.Q. than you do I suspect. I went to law school on a full academic scholarship – the only one in my class to have a full academic scholarship.” Biden went on to claim that he graduated in the top half of his law school.

  • Anti-Constitutionalists Chastise Government for Separating Illegal Alien Invader Parents from Children Ignore The Law - Stand On Hypocrisy

    Anti-Constitutionalists Chastise Government for Separating Illegal Alien Invader Parents from Children Ignore The Law – Stand On Hypocrisy

    It gets rather old listening to the hypocritical rhetoric from anti-constitutionalists.  Their values and principles are situational based instead of based firmly on God’s law, the Constitution, and legislation duly passed according to the Constitution.  Anti-constitutionalists are the epitome of the old saying, “If you stand for nothing, you fall for everything.”

    Recently, CNN reported that federal authorities were taking children from their mothers and fathers who crossed the border illegally while awaiting prosecution for violation of immigration law.  Attorney Miguel Nogueras, who handles immigration cases, told CNN that approximately 500 children had been separated from their parents who had been detained.  One incident, in particular, gained prominence in the news;  an incident relayed by attorney Natalie Cornello.  Cornello stated an illegal alien invader woman, waiting to be prosecuted for violation of immigration law, had her daughter removed from her arms by federal authorities while she was breastfeeding the child.

  • How Free Speech Makes The Modern University Possible

    How Free Speech Makes The Modern University Possible

    Free speech is fundamental to the modern university. But polls of college students and campus protests meant to silence dissenting views at Claremont McKenna, Middlebury, Berkeley, and other schools across the country show that many of today’s undergraduates think free speech isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. It may even make them feel unsafe.

    Princeton Professor Keith Whittington’s new book, Speak Freely: Why Universities Must Defend Free Speech, is a welcome antidote to the worst of campus politics and a reaffirmation of what makes universities great. It details the purpose of the modern university, why free speech is fundamental to that purpose, and what we stand to lose if we allow the campus mob to have its way. This year, every entering freshman at Princeton is required to read it, and other universities would do well to assign the same to their students.

  • Fathers Deserve More Than Stuff For Father’s Day. They Deserve Respect

    Fathers Deserve More Than Stuff For Father’s Day. They Deserve Respect

    An Internet search for “Father’s Day 2018” brings up a top hit: “20 Last-Minute Father’s Day Gifts That Are Amazon Prime-Eligible.” Now, like most dads, I’m not one to complain about receiving gifts (especially when they involve a good weekend of fishing), but something is wrong when popular culture understands the obligations of Father’s Day as nothing more than a 30-minute phone call and shipping your dad something Amazon’s website said were “Dad’s Favorites.”

    Like so many other things in our culture today, the commercialization of this holiday obscures its true meaning. Father’s Day is about so much more than store sales and cheesy coffee mugs. It is, to borrow the words a resolution President Calvin Coolidge once signed on its celebration, a day “to impress upon fathers the full measure of their obligations,” and remind ourselves of the importance of fatherhood to our country.

  • What Self-Governing Societies Can Learn From Ancient Athens

    What Self-Governing Societies Can Learn From Ancient Athens

    In the third lecture of Hillsdale College’s course on the histories of Athens and Sparta, Victor Davis Hanson asks: ‘What is the chief virtue of Athens?’

    In the third lecture of Hillsdale College’s course on the histories of Athens and Sparta, which you can follow along with here, Victor Davis Hanson, a history fellow at Hillsdale College, asks: “What is the chief virtue of Athens?”

    The collapse of the Mycenaean’s ushered in a period of dark ages in Greek society during which the linear B script disappeared and illiteracy abounded. It is during these times that the Homeric epics, which told the story of men of an earlier age, were repeated throughout generations in order to preserve them. As these stories were passed along, these men took on godlike qualities and the stakes of the stories were raised to epic ones. READ MORE...

  • The Riddle of the Father-Son Relationship

    The Riddle of the Father-Son Relationship

    It has been many years since my own father passed, but I always celebrate Father’s Day in his honor.

    My relationship with my dad was excellent. We enjoyed a very close bond as father and son. He taught me the virtues of discipline, hard work, manly strength, and keeping your word in all dealings professional and personal.

    This Father’s Day though, I want to speak to the stories of other men, friends, and relatives whose relationships with their fathers were at times fraught with tension and conflict. READ MORE...

  • Campaigns Aren’t Enough. To Beat Opioids, Everyone Needs To Step Up

    Campaigns Aren’t Enough. To Beat Opioids, Everyone Needs To Step Up

    The Trump administration unveiled a new anti-opioid education campaign last week, aimed at showcasing how easy it is to become addicted. These efforts to get the addiction crisis under control are noble. The campaign features gut-wrenching videos of young Americans willing to physically harm themselves to get new prescriptions. The portrayal of addiction is convincing.

    These kinds of prevention campaigns are important for targeting potential addicts, but don’t do as much for the people already languishing in the midst of their problems. Some of those already addicted folks are now relying on Naxolone, a drug that can revive someone from the brink of death by opioids, and purchases are skyrocketing. The popularity of Naxolone is a testament to how bad things have gotten in America’s great cultural battle against prescription drugs, with record overdose deaths.
