    The second comes from The Atlantic’s Emma Green. Detailing the findings of a survey conducted by her magazine and the Public Religion Research Institute, she notes that 61 percent of white working-class men view college as a “risky gamble.” Green’s report contained this explanation: “The enduring narrative of the American dream is that if you study and get a college education and work hard, you can get ahead,” said Robert P. Jones, the CEO of PRRI. “The survey shows that many white working-class Amer­icans, especially men, no longer see that path available to them. . . . It is this sense of economic fatalism,...

    Wednesday’s shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, which left at least 17 people dead, again reminds us that all is not right in the land of the free and the home of the brave. If you have children in the public school system, you’ll probably offer up a special prayer tonight, and hug your child a little longer in the morning before you send him or her off to school. It takes courage to live in America these days – but not for reasons any of us anticipated just a few short years ago. We’ve long been suffering from...
  • Trump gets my vote for JFK’s ‘Profiles in Courage’ award

    If the Kennedys were brave and bold, they would choose President Donald Trump as the 2018 recipient of the JFK Profiles in Courage Award. It won’t happen, of course, but it should. Right now, the Kennedy Foundation is soliciting nominations on the internet which no doubt will be filed and ignored. The award is the annual prize given to a public person, often a politician, who risked everything in pursuit of the greater good of the country. If that doesn’t fit Trump, then nothing does. The award is named after the title of the book, Profiles in Courage, written by...

    The Justice Department has given various congressional committees nearly 400 pages of additional text messages between two FBI officials who were removed from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials. One of the newly discovered messages, lawmakers said, appeared to indicate that Peter Strzok and Lisa Page knew that charges would not be filed against Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton as a result of the investigation into her email server -- before Clinton was interviewed by the bureau. [snip] One exchange between Strzok and Page, dated July 1, 2016, referenced then-Attorney General...

    Nobody displays it more vividly than the Hollywood pantheon.Approximately 15 years ago, I had a really sweet and cushy job. The job was easy. The hours very reasonable. The pay comfortable six figures. And, for people who did not know what the work environment was like, the job actually was quite prestigious. People begged me to help them get interviews there, to meet the power behind the throne, even just for phone access — just, please, the phone number. The problem was that I had to get out of there. The environment of the workplace was amazingly hostile to women....

    I guess now we’re not supposed to be fighting culture wars anymore – man, it’s so hard to keep up with these ever-changing new rules! I’m old enough to remember way back to 2016, before Trump got nominated, and I could have sworn Conservative Inc., was gung-ho for the whole culture war thing. But then Trump actually fought it, taking on the big, soft target that is the spoiled, semi-literate athletes who like to rub their contempt for the flag we love in our faces in the guise of woke wokedness. Now we suddenly discover that fighting back is horribly...

    The Kennedy Presidential Library’s annual “Profiles in Courage” Award for 2017 will go to former President Barack Obama. The Award, named after the 1957 Pulitzer Prize winning book ghost written for then Massachusetts Democratic Sen. John F. Kennedy, is given to individuals displaying extraordinary political courage by taking an unpopular course of action. The award ceremony will take place in May, when former First Daughter Caroline Kennedy and grandson of the late JFK, Jack Schlossberg, bestow the prize. “Faced with unrelenting adulation and widespread demands that he declare himself ‘president for life,’ President Obama courageously agreed to follow the law...

    Washington (CNN)Former President Barack Obama has been named the 2017 "Profile in Courage" award honoree by the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation. The foundation said Thursday it is recognizing Obama for "expanding health security for millions of Americans, restoring diplomatic relations with Cuba and leading a landmark international accord to combat climate change." The award, created in 1989, is given to a public official or group of public servants from any level of government each year "whose actions demonstrate the qualities of politically courageous leadership in the spirit of 'Profiles in Courage,' President Kennedy's 1957 Pulitzer prize-winning book," according to...

    He'll bring pernil, platano and a pro-Trump message right to your doorstep. Jose Peralta, a deliveryman for the Bushwick Dominican restaurant Alex Luncheonette, is so into making America great again that customers in the neighborhood are calling him "The Trump Guy." He comes to work at the Knickerbocker Avenue eatery each day with his fire engine-red Trump baseball cap and a pin from the president's campaign. The battered Toyota Corolla he zips around the neighborhood in is plastered with bumper stickers for Trump and the far-right website InfoWars. "They tell me I was the only one in Brooklyn that supported...

    Last week, a young Christian male asked me a pretty direct question. He wanted to know whether I ever worried that my blunt commentary on social media was “turning people away from Christianity.” I thought it was an honest question. So I gave him an honest answer. I told him that I believe the problem is just the opposite of what he considers it to be. In other words, it isn’t occasional blunt commentary that turns people away from Christianity. It is the constant displays of Christian cowardice that make people both reticent to join and quick to attack us....

    In the aftermath of the Democratic National Convention, the party's nominee, Michael S. Dukakis, has expanded his lead among registered voters over Vice President Bush, the probable Republican nominee, according to a Gallup Poll... Fifty-five percent of the 948 registered voters interviewed in the poll said they preferred to see Mr. Dukakis win the 1988 Presidential election, while 38 percent said they preferred to see Mr. Bush win. The poll had a margin of sampling error of plus or minus four percentage points... This represented a shift in Mr. Dukakis's lead from the 47 percent to 41 percent advantage he...

    It is surely the last time, my friends, that the world will see this vast company of American vets assembled in Normandy on June 6. There are thousands still who dream dreams of those beaches, who, in silent moments, still see the faces of the fallen. They live among us, shoulder to shoulder, the old warriors of World War II. But these are quiet men. In dark corners of their closets, in boxes in attics, lay things they can touch to bring it all back. Battered boots. Khaki blankets. Medals in a velvet case. A frayed packet of letters. Handfuls...
