America Is Not Having Babies Anymore

Rod Thomson Americans just celebrated the birth of Christ 2,000 years ago. What we are celebrating a lot less these days is the birth of our own babies.

Can Populists Counter The Decline Of The West?

By Giuliano Maciocci What is happening in the western world is scary and upsetting to many, but exciting and full of promise to others. It might seem a banality to say the world is changing, but the world is changing: rapidly, inevitably, sometimes unpredictably and painfully.

Democrats Caught In Vile Attack On Wife Of Trump’s Florida Co-Chair

St. Ambrose College’s Segregated Muslim Prayer Room Is A Chilling Reality

by Rod Thomson That St. Ambrose College in Davenport, Iowa has opened a sex-segregated prayer room for Muslim students requires an explanation. On the surface, it seems totally bizarre.

John McCain — A Once Great Man Made Very Small in Washington

2 Simple Reasons Why The American Left Instinctively Seeks Censorship

Science Explains Why Activists Can Exploit Teen’s Emotional Trauma

Rod Thomson The fallout from the Parkland school shooting is demonstrating how left-wing activists are willing to exploit vulnerable teens in pursuit of a political agenda. It’s a despicable act. We should be protecting grieving teens from this sort of manipulation, not using them as pawns. But expect to see more, and younger children, too. […]

I’ve Raised Eight Millennials. They’re Nothing Like Millennials

Rod Thomson The much-maligned Millennial Generation has a well-earned reputation for being “narcissistic” “lazy” “entitled” “fame-obsessed” and “developmentally stunted” — to use the rather scathing but statistically-backed descriptions in a famous Time magazine article. Simply put, they are deeply unprepared for the real world, as most employers and many parents have discovered. While this is […]
