The 1623 Project: When Socialism Lost, and Free Markets Won

In August, 2019, the New York Times began driving an ill-conceived propaganda campaign called Project 1619, when slavery first came to America in the Jamestown, Virginia colony.

The Left, the Right, and Race – a Passionate Speech by Dennis Prager

To Americans, thunders Dennis Prager, race should be a person’s least important attribute. Instead, over the past 50 years, the Left has elevated race to be the single-most-important attribute that defines a person, followed closely by that person’s gender and class.  What ever happened to wisdom, character, compassion?  Further, when Prager is asked what is the most […]
