Democrats Don’t Want You To Know How Moderate Trump’s Abortion Stance Is

By David Harsanyi Come to think of it, the GOP’s federal bill is also pretty moderate. Abortion on demand, for any reason, until birth, funded by taxpayers.

Weekend Read: Artificial Intelligence

By Conlan Salgado As human beings we name things. We classify objects and persons. These activities are the foundation of our pursuit of understanding: categorization. It may be that in classifying ourselves as homo sapiens—intelligent hominids—we set ourselves up for perpetual misunderstanding of ourselves. Lately some members of homo sapiens have convinced themselves that they […]

By George Leef Among the many destructive ideas loose in American education is that black students should not be expected to master standard English because doing so is demeaning and demoralizing for them.

By Robert Schmad A plethora of federal agencies have spent well over $200 million attempting to alleviate homelessness in Washington state over the past 17 years, only for the number of people living on the streets to keep rising.

Sex Politics

By E.J. Hare With the sudden re-emergence of Christine Blasey Ford, who tried to derail Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court with baseless accusations of sexual assault, the Democrats are clearly wasting no time in trying to get more white women back into their fold. They are looking to make the extremely nuanced case […]

Weekend Read: Still Spiraling Down

By Craig J. Cantoni The state of American society and culture 30 years after the publication of “Defining Deviancy Down.” Daniel Patrick Moynihan’s essay, “Defining Deviancy Down,” was published in the 1993-1994 Winter edition of The American Scholar.

Beware Those Who Intentionally Use Words To Lie

By Thomas C. Patterson The word “liberal” was once considered a compliment. It meant fair, principled, and thoughtful. The Age of Enlightenment was birthed by “classical liberals” with their then-fantastical notions about government by consent of the governed, legal equality of all, and individually owned rights. Later as ideologies like collectivism and class oppression gained […]

The Abortion Access Amendment Is Getting Most Of Its Funding From Outside Arizona

By Katarina White It’s bad enough that the abortion lobby is fully committed to its disturbing agenda to enshrine abortion up until birth in the Arizona Constitution. But now, it appears, that the overwhelming majority of the funding to get this measure on our ballot in November isn’t even coming from within our state. I […]

Arizonans Should Decline To Sign The Arizona Abortion Access Amendment

The TikTok Spiral

By Faith Kuzma Trauma dumping on the “for you page” sucks young girls into a pit of self-loathing. The winning TikTok formula is videos produced by teens for their peers.

Family Estrangement

By Bruce Bialosky Editors Note:  The holidays have come and gone and now we face the New Year.

When a Sportswoman Dies at the Hands of a Male-Born Trans Athlete, Will Congress STILL Call Me a “Transphobe”?

By Riley Gaines When someone resorts to name-calling, it’s usually because they know they’re fighting a losing battle.

But to witness – and be the target of – such low-level mudslinging in Congress, the beating heart of American democracy, was especially shocking. At […]

The People Of Arizona Should Stop Any Efforts To Allow Abortion Up To Birth

By Ed Steele The abortion lobby has made it clear. It wants to erase every pro-life law and enshrine abortion up to birth in the Arizona Constitution.
