Unmasking George Soros and his antagonism toward Israel

Billionaire George Soros generally does not hide the fact that he uses the considerable funds at his disposal to support his extremist, leftist ideals. So when he does hide something, it should raise some serious questions.

The Democratic Convention: A sharp contrast to Trump

Because the Democratic Convention followed the GOP Convention, held in Cleveland last week, we have more of a basis to contrast the two, both in style, substance and tone.

Bernie’s utopian nightmare

Bernie Sanders’ appeal among young people has increasingly focused on delivering the supposed benefits a socialist society can give them: free education, free health care and a government-mandated “living wage.”

The education dilemma

For far too many years we’ve tried to address the problem of failing educational achievement in America essentially by ignoring it. And by ignoring it, I mean, throwing money at it and hoping it’ll go away.
