Does Ilhan Omar know that a Jewish Army Veteran Was the First American to Die in Somalia?

In 1992 the U.S. sent Freedman as part of an advance team to prepare the way for American troops in Somalia. On Dec. 23, two weeks after the troops had arrived, Freedman became the first American killed as part of the relief effort in Somalia. Any American casualty is noteworthy, but Freedman’s sacrifice stands out because he was Jewish....

“Entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed by the year 2000.”

When I got home last night, I watched a local news clip reporting Gov. Walz’s “100 percent renewables by 2050” proposal. I was looking closely at the news anchors; would they report this as a serious idea? Would they burst into laughter? One of them seemed to have a slight smile, like he was trying hard not to laugh. Or point out that Tim Walz would probably be senile or dead by 2050.  ...

Panera Cares Closes Last “Pay-What-You-Can-Restaurant”

The article below was originally printed in The Blaze and details the spectacular failure of the "test of humanity" conducted by the founder of Panera. It turns out people won't magically pay their "fair share" when there is no accountability. By effectively reducing the price of the meals to nothing, demand skyrocketed and the company hemorrhaged money, and eventually had to cap the number of free meals it would give to the homeless. Panera Bread will be closing its last pay-what-you-can restaurant, located in Boston, on Feb. 15. The move comes after the business's "nonprofit" restaurant concept became unviable. On Tuesday, Eater reported that none of...

In The Tank: Episode 173

Hello all! I'm excited to announce that I have been asked to be a co-host of the In the Tank Podcast, which examines the work of Think Tanks throughout the country.

Thanks to the Manhattan Institute, the Beacon Center of Tennessee,...

Becoming an American: how our Elite has Cheapened Citizenship

My friend from Egypt came to our country many years ago in hopes of being a citizen. He loves America, loves the West and all it stands for: freedom and prosperity. He thinks our lax approach to immigration betrays a terrible naiveté and a dangerous lack of care for preserving American culture, the culture that attracted him to move here. He did not come all the way from Egypt to live in a chaotic, socialist nation. He could have gone many places around the globe, or just stayed in Egypt, for that. ...
