Tens of millions of people from all walks of life across the United States support President Donald Trump. Men and women. Wealthy and poor. Black, white, brown and every skin tone in between.
In COVID-19, our modern world is facing a plague of Biblical proportions. The pandemic has illuminated the woeful limitations of our earthly actions and provided a powerful reminder that we must return to the virtues that undergird this remarkable nation.
Have you ever wondered why people mourn the loss of individuals of stature, such as celebrities and political leaders, who are complete and total strangers, with profound sadness and frustration?
One of the things that people across the board find pathetic, misleading and downright disgusting is hypocrisy.
This week, I had the great honor and privilege of observing history. I was blessed to be a guest of the White House and witness the signing of the momentous peace agreement between Israel and two Arab nations: Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates.
With the conclusion of both the Democratic and Republican conventions, there was one aspect of the RNC convention that truly stood out, and that was the diversity of the speakers. With the media continually painting President Donald Trump as racist or racially insensitive, the first night of the RNC convention showcased something else, and so did the stories told by the speakers.
This week is the launch of the Republican National Convention, and it's a pivotal moment for President Donald Trump and the Republican Party. It's Trump's opportunity to highlight his forward vision for the country and to tell the American people how he'll lead us through the coronavirus pandemic.
American society is experiencing unprecedented social upheaval and division along the lines of race, religion, class and political affiliation. We hear a cacophony of voices, advocating for or against different types of speech and action, allegedly speaking on behalf of white Americans who seem focused on vehemently proving that they are not racist by demonstrating blind solidarity with the slogan "Black Lives Matter" (BLM).
Under President Barack Obama, and President Bush before him, America's admirals and generals have utterly failed to prepare us to fight adversaries such as Russia and China.
President Donald Trump's frayed relations with the U.S. military could imperil some of his most notable achievements.
For weeks, medical experts and the news media have told us that if we begin to reopen various aspects of the economy, there would be a resulting spike in COVID-19 cases. It appears that they were correct.
Kanye West held his first campaign rally last week in South Carolina. The clickbait headlines splashed across the internet are characterizing the event as "bizarre," "chaotic" and "rambling." But Americans might want to take the campaign seriously, even if they shouldn't take the man himself seriously.
I have always believed that bureaucrats working on behalf of the American people should be visibly neutral politically. We shouldn't know what their political ideologies are or what political parties they belong to or the causes they support.
It certainly doesn't seem like we can put faith in the media or political parties, and, unfortunately, a growing number of Americans say that they no longer trust each other either. In a world that is as divided and self-righteous as ours is currently, this should come as no surprise.
In the wake of recent Black Lives Matter protests -- in response to the murder of George Floyd at the hands of a police officer and the important dialog that has resulted -- I am inclined to revisit The New York Times' controversial 1619 Project.
Scenes of largely white crowds across the world demonstrating in support of Black Lives Matter in the wake of George Floyd's murder are reminiscent of another watershed moment in America -- the 1960s civil rights revolution. Through the historic '60s, white America finally awakened to the plight of blacks in this country. What followed was an upheaval in American society that forever changed the social and political landscape within our country.
The orchestrated violence roiling an increasing number of American cities is cause for considerable concern. There are myriad explanations being offered by the media and pundits. But the voices that are largely silent during this time of chaos are the very people who are a central factor in the lawlessness and violence that is spreading.
ESPN's documentary on Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls is already receiving rave reviews for shining a spotlight on not only the greatest basketball player ever but one of the best athletes of all time. Four episodes into the 10-part series, "The Last Dance" has already underscored the vital role that family plays, especially in the lives of young black men.
It's a sure sign you've reached maturity in life when you stop trying to have it both ways. As an adult, you shouldn't expect to be able to eat all the ice cream in the fridge every night and still avoid the long-term health effects of a poor diet.
