• A Guide to Colleges Committed to Ideological Diversity

    When you send your youngster off to college, you might not mind that they will have to walk on eggshells, respect taboos, snitch on fellow students for politically incorrect jokes, and learn to use ad hominem arguments as a means to attack ideas they find “disagreeable.” READ MORE...

    What the Left Gets Wrong About Racial Disparities

    My longtime friend and colleague Thomas Sowell has just published a revised and enlarged edition of “Discrimination and Disparities.” It lays waste to myth after myth about the causes of human differences not only in the United States but around the globe. READ MORE...

  • Is the Black Vote Benefiting From Democratic Control?

    Is the Black Vote Benefiting From Democratic Control?

    In 1976, Gerald Ford won 15 percent of the black vote. That’s the most of any recent Republican presidential candidate. In most elections, blacks give Democrats over 90 percent of their votes. It’s not unreasonable to ask what have blacks gained from such unquestioning loyalty to the Democratic Party.

    After all, the absolute worst public safety conditions and
    other urban amenities for blacks are in cities that have been controlled by
    Democrats for decades. Let’s look at it.

    What cities are the deadliest for blacks? The Trace, an
    independent nonprofit news organization, answers that question.

    Using 2017 data from the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting program, The Trace listed the 20 major U.S.

  • History Lesson Explains Shifting Political Stances on Illegal Immigration

    History Lesson Explains Shifting Political Stances on Illegal Immigration

    Here are a couple of easy immigration questions—answerable with a simple “yes” or “no”—we might ask any American of any political stripe: Does everyone in the world have a right to live in the U.S.? Do the American people have a right, through their elected representatives, to decide who has the right to immigrate to their country and under what conditions?

    I believe that most Americans, even today’s open-borders people, would answer “no” to the first question and “yes” to the second.

    There’s nothing new about this vision. Americans have held this view throughout our history, during times when immigration laws were very restrictive and when they were more relaxed.

  • The Racism the Left Ignores

    The Racism the Left Ignores

    How appropriate would it be for a major publicly held American company to hire a person with a history of having publicly made the following statements and many others like them? In the interest of brevity, I shall list only four:

    “The world could get by just fine with zero black people.”

    “It’s kind of sick how much joy I get out of being cruel to old black men.”

    “Dumbass f—ing black people marking up the internet with their opinions like dogs pissing on fire hydrants.”

    “Are black people genetically predisposed to burn faster in the sun, thus logically only being fit to live underground like groveling bilious goblins?”

    I think most Americans would find such blatant racism despicable and would condemn any company that knowingly hired such a person.

  • The Fruits of College Indoctrination

    The Fruits of College Indoctrination

    Much of today’s incivility and contempt for personal liberty has its roots on college campuses, and most of the uncivil and contemptuous are people with college backgrounds. Let’s look at a few highly publicized recent examples of incivility and attacks on free speech.

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and his wife, U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, were accosted and harassed by a deranged left-wing mob as they were leaving a dinner at Georgetown University. McConnell was harassed by protesters at Reagan National Airport, as well as at several venues in Kentucky.

    Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and his wife were harassed at a Washington, D.C., restaurant.

  • Our Identity Crisis

    Our Identity Crisis

    According to a recent report in The New York Times, Health and Human Services Department officials have been circulating a proposal to define sex.

    Their memo says, “Sex means a person’s status as male or female based on immutable biological traits identifiable by or before birth.” They add, “The sex listed on a person’s birth certificate, as originally issued, shall constitute definitive proof of a person’s sex unless rebutted by reliable genetic evidence.”

    I think the latter statement lacks complete rigor.

    It’s chromosomes, not what’s on a birth certificate, that determine one’s sex. Therefore, if a fetus has XX chromosomes, a female is born, and if a fetus has XY chromosomes, a male is born.

    Brett Kavanaugh’s Opponents Aren’t Really Against Him. They’re Against the Constitution.

    One of the best statements of how the Framers saw the role of the federal government is found in Federalist Paper 45, written by James Madison, who is known as the “Father of the Constitution”:

    The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite. The former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation, and foreign commerce. … The powers reserved to the several States will extend to all the objects which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, liberties, and properties of the people.

  • Colleges: A Force for Evil

    Colleges: A Force for Evil

    Many of the nation’s colleges have become a force for evil and a focal point for the destruction of traditional American values. The threat to our future lies in the fact that today’s college students are tomorrow’s teachers, professors, judges, attorneys, legislators, and policymakers.

    A recent Brookings Institution poll suggests that nearly half of college students believe hate speech is not protected by the First Amendment. Of course, it is.

    Fifty-one percent of students think that it’s acceptable to shout down a speaker with whom they disagree. About 20 percent of students hold that it’s acceptable to use violence to prevent a speaker from speaking.

  • The Experts Have Been Wrong About Lots of Things. Here's a Sampling.

    The Experts Have Been Wrong About Lots of Things. Here’s a Sampling.

    Former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers predicted that if Donald Trump were elected, there would be a protracted recession within 18 months.

    Heeding its experts, a month before the election, the Washington Post ran an editorial with the headline “A President Trump could destroy the world economy.” Steve Rattner, a Democratic financier and former head of the National Economic Council, warned, “If the unlikely event happens and Trump wins, you will see a market crash of historic proportions.”

    When Trump’s electoral victory became apparent, Nobel Prize-winning economist and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman warned that the world was “very probably looking at a global recession, with no end in sight.” By the way, Krugman has been so wrong in so many of his economic predictions, but that doesn’t stop him from making more shameless predictions.

    Identity Warriors Have Infiltrated the Sciences. Here’s the Damage They’re Doing.

    In conversations with most college officials, many CEOs, many politicians, and race hustlers, it’s not long before the magical words “diversity” and “inclusiveness” drop from their lips.

    Racial minorities are the intended targets of this sociological largesse, but women are included, as well. This obsession with diversity and inclusion is in the process of leading the nation to decline in a number of areas. We’re told how it’s doing so in science, in an article by Heather Mac Donald, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, titled “How Identity Politics Is Harming the Sciences.”

    Mac Donald says that identity politics has already taken over the humanities and social sciences on American campuses.
