Suzanne Fields, You could call it the tale of two election reflections, two competing points of view, two American perceptions of out-of-focus reality. Two important media voices looked back at the November election this week to try to figure out how and why Donald Trump, who everybody despised and nobody wanted to win, actually did
John Hawkins, After Donald Trump pulled out of the Paris Climate Accord earlier this week, perhaps the dumbest hot take on it was from liberal feminist Amanda Marcotte, “Trump and his followers are excited by the idea that ruining the environment will make liberals, especially women, sad. That’s all this is.” Hate to “mansplain” here
John Hawkins, If self-delusion were magic, average liberals would be David Blaine, David Copperfield and Houdini all rolled up into one. Most of what they say has no relation to what they’re doing, the policies they push rarely work and logic might as well be a strange, alien language to them. Since that’s the case,
John Hawkins, “Civilization has been aptly called a ‘thin crust over a volcano.’ (Liberals) are constantly picking at that crust.” — Thomas Sowell After Hollywood jackass Jimmy Kimmel was criticized for exploiting his son’s illness to push his political agenda and incorrectly insinuating that surgeries for newborns weren’t covered before Obamacare, he did a follow-up
Suzanne Fields, Mother’s Day ain’t what it used to be. (Apologies to Mom for using a word she hated.) The day set aside to obey half of the Biblical commandment “Honor thy father and thy mother” is grounded root and branch in multiculti faith, whose diverse goals do not always have much to do with
Barely two days into crafting a new bill to roll back Obamacare, U.S. Senate Republicans were already on the defensive on Tuesday over the absence of any women in their core working group.

Kimberly Fletcher, My daughter, Cassie, recently had a visit from a childhood friend. It had been 17 years since they’d seen each other. After visiting and sharing stories of their lives, Ashley, my daughter’s friend, commented that Cassie had accomplished so much, earning a master’s degree and starting a successful career and she was “just
Ian Hanchett, Trump Wants Base to See Women and People of Color Not Involved. On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The Last Word,” Fordham University Associate Professor of Political Science Christina Greer stated that President Trump “wants his base supporters to see — this is a white supremacist administration, and he wants them to see this leadership.
Michael Barone, “Cultural appropriation” has become the latest evil denounced by soi-disant social justice warriors, on campus and off. Examples: “I was taught that white people shouldn’t listen to rap music because it’s cultural appropriation and could be offensive to my classmates,” writes Pomona College student Steven Glick in The Washington Post. Young women wearing
Suzanne Fields, Bill O’Reilly, the opinionator, is out of Fox, and the “Girls” sitcom ended a six-year run on HBO. The two events are not unrelated. They’re bookends for the ways men and women relate to each other. Bill O’Reilly was the Everyman, reflective of the male chauvinism dominant in the last century. He was
Mona Charen, Watching Hillary Clinton answer questions from Christiane Amanpour for 44 minutes is not exactly torture; it’s more like being forced to swallow a gallon of cold porridge. Let’s leave personalities aside. Clinton’s is not very appealing to me (nor is Donald Trump’s). But let’s pull back the lens and consider what, if anything,
