What is Alan Ross’s secret? His “new” model restores the university to what it is supposed to be and once was: about learning, not politics. Students take a final exam that tests what they have learned from the wide variety of ideas they have heard in the course of the semester, which determines whether they pass the course.

More Freedom: Good for Blacks, Bad for Black Politicians

More Freedom: Good for Blacks, Bad for Black Politicians

Black politicians want us to believe that the economic laws that work for whites don’t apply to blacks. They want us to believe that politics and government will make black lives better instead. Some $22 trillion dollars have been spent on anti-poverty programs without making a dent in the black poverty rate, and with gaps between black and white median household income and wealth continuing to increase.

Freedom Caucus: Today’s Abolitionists

The Freedom Caucus members are today’s abolitionists. They see, rightly, how far America has drifted from its blueprint of freedom, and the grave consequences of this fiscally, morally and existentially.

David Friedman: The Right US Ambassador to Israel

I recently had the opportunity to meet, in Washington, D.C., David Friedman, President Trump’s nominee to be America’s next ambassador to Israel. I was impressed by this brilliant and passionate man, an observant Jew, a fluent Hebrew speaker (he read my necklace that has my name, Star, in Hebrew), who has the values crucial to our important Israeli ally. This is critical to re-establish American leadership in the Middle East.

Democrats Offer Mud Instead of Substantive Agenda

The Democratic Party has been very thoroughly defeated. Now it’s time to return the nation, as stated by President Trump, “back to the people.” And those on the left are in panic. Cut regulations and taxes? Get intrusive government out of the way and let our economy grow? Let businesses operate freely?

Chuck Schumer’s Fake News

Senator Charles Schumer seems to have difficulty in distinguishing between the rumblings of change and the rumblings of dissatisfaction. After some 36 years in Washington, Schumer likes the way things are and probably cannot conceive how fed up so many Americans are and how they crave real and substantial change.

Norma McCorvey

Jane Roe, In Memoriam

I first met Norma McCorvey some 20 years ago, soon after her Christian conversion. That conversion set her against the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, which legalized abortion, and in which she was the plaintiff.

Democrats impede excellence in education

What is it about new Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos that so bothers Democrats that not a single Democratic Senator voted to confirm her, requiring Vice President Mike Pence to cast the deciding vote?

Trump’s Mistaken Interest in HBCUs

Why is President Trump, who delivered a strong message in his campaign about working for real change to build prosperity in poor black communities, starting off by focusing on more of what has hurt black advancement so much — politicians showing them they care by spending government money?

Marching for Life and for the Future

Marching for Life and for the Future

I wonder why when hundreds of thousands of women show up in Washington to demonstrate for what one Wall Street Journal columnist called “everything under the progressive sun,” the press goes bonkers with coverage. Yet, when similar numbers of pro-lifers reportedly show up for the March for Life, as they have been doing every January since the Roe v. Wade decision in January 1973, and as they will do again this week, they barely get a nod from the media.
