Are we being blinded with science? British scientists will now start genetically modifying humans. But where will genetic engineering lead — and how should it be pursued?

Those claiming to be "scientific" today preach a contradictory message: “Trans-speciesism” is nuttiness; “transgenderism” is a legitimate status. Body dysmorphia gets you psychological treatment; gender dysphoria gets you special treatment. Doctors amputating healthy legs are quacks; those amputating healthy genitals are healers. And a girl claiming she’s a cat is crazy, but claiming it’s crazy for her to say she’s a boy is hate.

Is Christianity now a crime? Some would say this is the case in Norway, where a couple has had their five children seized based on charges of, their lawyer reports, “Christian radicalization and indoctrination.”

Ever since Donald Trump’s rise to 2016-contender prominence, the rap on him, and perhaps part of his broad appeal, has been that he’s not a conservative. And he’s not — he’s a nationalistic populist. Yet there’s another way to understand The Donald’s professed politics: as that of the first prominent “European-conservative” American presidential candidate. He’s not so much America’s next Ronald Reagan or Barry Goldwater, but her first Marine Le Pen.

The Devil entered American homes Monday night. Oh, it wasn’t the first time, but usually it’s not so explicit. For Monday saw the premiere of a new Fox network series that makes Satan the main character.

Many were aghast at last year’s Planned Parenthood videos apparently showing the organization coldly trafficking in babies’ body parts. And now indictments have been issued in the case — against the people who exposed the carnage. 

Donald Trump’s rise this election season has been historic, amounting to something heretofore unseen in the annals of American politics. Given this, it’s perhaps not surprising that many are still befuddled by the phenomenon. Pundit Charles Krauthammer is bewildered, saying that “for some reason” Trump “is immune to the laws of contradiction.” (In reality, Democrats get away with contradiction continually; the only difference is that the media actually report on Trump’s.) Also in the news recently is that some find his appeal among evangelicals “inexplicable.” Of course, it’s all quite explainable.

Another racism lie: We're told that the Oscars are inordinately white. But according to statistics, that notion is as fictional as Hollywood films themselves.

Islam is in and Christianity is out, the Founding Fathers are just “dead white guys,” and “D**n the Second Amendment." These are just a few of the starting statements made in an undercover video by a Common Core insider. 

Thomas Jefferson called nullification the "rightful remedy" for all federal usurpation. Despite this, many state legislators still don't seem to understand that power is only counteracted by power.
