The natural human propensity for clear and simple answers constantly tempts to false dichotomies and lopsided choices. Sometimes the complexity is clear. Should we develop our personal lives or our professional lives? Should we organize our finances with a view to the short term or the long term? Should we care for our bodies or cultivate our minds? In these cases, it easy to see that the answer is both; the hard part is coordinating, adjusting to circumstances, and striking the right balance. But what seems obvious when it comes to juggling the personal and the professional, handling money, and keeping body and mind in good order appears more elusive in politics.In matters of public policy,
In the postpandemic era, America and the West have faced critical challenges to their security, societies, and economies. Meanwhile, authoritarian forces such as Russia and China (also confronted by internal challenges) have sought to revise the global order in favor of their respective national interests and ideological preferences.Throughout the year 2022, Hoover fellows provided extensive and timely analyses on pressing policy concerns, including record rates of inflation and energy shortages not seen since the 1970s and 1980s; Russia’s invasion of Ukraine; and China’s aggression against Taiwan. Fellows also assessed public opinion on these and other issues and how they shaped midterm ele
In a recent Rasmussen Reports poll, 39 percent of Americans consider other Americans to be America’s greatest threat. That’s more people than consider China our greatest threat (25 percent). It’s almost twice as many as those that consider Russia our greatest threat (20 percent).Of those polled, 22 percent say Democrats are our greatest threat. That would include people like myself, who believe the Dems have become the American communists -- determined to destroy everything that makes us exceptional -- as a necessary measure to marshal in a socialist utopia.Another 17 percent say that Republicans are the greatest threat. Those would be our fellow citizens who have bought Biden’s semi-fascist

Remember, no man is a failure who has friends,” wrote Clarence Oddbody to George Bailey at the end of Frank Capra’s 1946 classic, “It’s a Wonderful Life.” Clarence is an angel-in-training, and is waiting to earn his wings. To do this, he must save George Bailey from committing suicide. But wait . . . let’s pause for a moment and start from the beginning. It’s important to learn who George Bailey really is.In order to save George’s life, Clarence is taken on a journey into George’s past and present, leading to the very dark, alternative future. We see George as a boy, saving his brother’s life, and then saving a child’s life from the confused and drunken hand of a grieving druggist. As George
NASA’s astrobiology program leans heavily on the assumption that any location where liquid water can persist is a potential place for life to emerge and evolve. Consequently, those interested in the question of life beyond the Earth have typically limited their searches to watery places. Usually those were planets orbiting within their particular “continuously habitable zone” (CHZ), defined as the distance from the host star where H2O could remain in the liquid state for long periods of time. The CHZ has inner and outer radii with temperatures between 0 and 100°C, the freezing and boiling points for H2O. If a planet stays within the CHZ throughout its orbit, it is deemed “habitable” whether
Fabrication seems to be a standard practice for the media, other Democrats, and members of the Deep state.It would be very helpful to the modern viewer — who looks to news outlets for unbiased information on current events — if the media always did research instead of repeating what they are told as they campaign for Democrats.Below is a small sample of fabricated stories:#AmericanThinker #FakeNewsMedia #Truth #Grifting ‍‍
In A Big Bang in a Little Room, Zeeya Merali describes the consensus among science’s biggest brains: “The notion that a god made our universe is several rungs on the wackiness ladder above the idea that it was made by aliens.” Nevertheless, Merali describes herself as a believer in God. She’s also the holder of an Ivy League PhD in theoretical physics. So she asks a good question: If God desired to send us a message, how would He do it?Published in 1985, Carl Sagan’s novel Contact included speculation about finding a code in the digits of pi, which starts out 3.14159 and keeps going forever — but no one’s found it. Others said God might encode a message within the human genome — but that wou
God’s existence is not a scientific theory on a par with Darwin’s theory of evolution or Big Bang theory or General Relativity. It is certainly possible that Darwinism or the Big Bang or Relativity could be wrong in a fundamental way — in fact, it is obvious that each of these theories is far from an exhaustive explanation of nature.God’s existence is a necessary predicate for the existence of anything, including the natural world. God is the ground of existence — the Necessary Existence — on which existence itself utterly depends. But there is another perspective that I think is important. Natural theology is a branch of theology (and properly a branch of natural science, in my view) that d
At the time of the American Founding, celebrations of Christmas in America varied widely, from Puritans and Quakers who shunned or ignored it, to other Protestant sects and Catholics who honored it in their own Christian ways, to those who spent the day in “riot and dissipation,” like an ancient Roman Saturnalia. But E Pluribus Unum—out of many one—was the American motto on the Great Seal, and over the generations, out of many ways of celebrating or ignoring Christmas, came a recognizably American way.As years went by, cities grew, and commerce flourished, the private celebrations of American Christmas became more public. City, town, and village centers were decorated for the season. Departm
Laura Loomer, the far-right activist who staunchly defended dirty trickster Roger Stone and called herself “pro-white nationalism,” is back on Twitter. In 2018, the provocateur was suspended from the site after making a series of anti-Muslim statements about Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and was kept off despite a 2020 run for the House in Florida’s 21st Congressional District. That same hear, she drew national attention for interrupting Twitter co-creator Jack Dorsey’s congressional hearing, calling for the site to “stop silencing conservative voices.” ‍
BREAKING:Milo #Yiannopoulos is trying to extort Ye (Kanye West) for $116,000 in “consulting fees”.I told everyone for the last 2 weeks that all Milo was trying to do was steal money from Ye. Once again, I’m right! Grifter status confirmed! This is also illegal and #Milo should be deported for this because an official #Ye campaign hasn’t even been filed with the #FEC. Milo can go to jail for this. It’s illegal to bill someone for campaign services when an official campaign doesn’t exist with the FEC. #DeportMilo‍  ‍
Inflation – it’s on everyone’s mind. Everyone is talking about how inflation is the highest it has been in forty years. With the slowing economy, what was said to be a “transitory” phase has turned into “stagflation.”Some are blaming the government. The government is blaming the war. Republicans are blaming the Democrats, and the left is blaming greedy corporations. As the blame game and alarm rage, it remains a fact that most of us don’t know what inflation is. Few know what causes it. Fewer know how it can be curbed.Under the circumstances, it pays to listen to the respected American economist Milton Friedman as he deconstructs this “alarming” phenomenon. The Nobel Laureate, speaking at th
If you want to see the problem with American education, look at a chart illustrating the comparative growth in the number of students, teachers, and district administrators in our public schools in the period between 2000 and 2019. (See the chart below.) The number of district administrators grew by a whopping 87.6 percent during these years, far outstripping the growth in the number of students (7.6 percent) and teachers (8.7 percent).In illustrating the difference in these rates of growth, the chart also illustrates a fundamental change that has come over our nation as a whole during this period—a change in how we govern ourselves and how we live. To say a change is fundamental means that
