posted by Jack Kerwick

Dinesh D’Souza’s political documentary—2016: Obama’s America—is beginning to soar at the box office. D’Souza’s film is based upon his book, The Roots of Obama’s Rage.  Now, while I haven’t seen the former, I have read—and reviewed—the latter.  In his monograph, […]

Why Romney Will Win

Byron York is perplexed by what he perceives to be the glaring discrepancy between the Mitt Romney of the GOP primary season and the Mitt Romney who is the Republican Party’s presumptive presidential nominee. Borrowing from the Star Wars mythos, […]

posted by Jack Kerwick

The phenomenally successful restaurant franchise Chick-Fil-A is once again at the center of national controversy. And, once again, it is a controversy generated by those who waste not a moment to equate opposition to so-called “same sex marriage” with “hate.” […]
