    Resist the Temptation of Pointless Press Battles

    As he prepares to assume power, President-elect Trump and those of us who support his agenda of conservative reform should resist the temptation for pointless battles with the press. Liberal media bias is nothing new, and the most successful conservatives, like Reagan, managed to transcend it. Richard Nixon, on the…

    “Commensurate to Our Capacity for Wonder”

    The story behind my book THE AMERICAN MIRACLE begins with my late father, whose birth in Philadelphia 90 years ago constitutes an American miracle of its own. My grandfather, a barrel maker from a destitute and decrepit village in Ukraine, came to the United States in 1906. He left behind…

    3 Democratic Delusions

    As Democrats try to regroup after their recent presidential defeat, they tend to delude themselves on three crucial points.
