Hogan's a Hero

June 7, 2024  •  The Washington Examiner

Maryland Republicans did something unusual recently. In nominating former Republican Gov. Larry Hogan for the Senate, they selected a candidate for federal office with a chance to win. Maryland, a liberal state with a large population of government employees, has not voted for a Republican for president since 1988.

The Benefits of Religious Colleges

June 6, 2024  •  Discourse

When I stepped into the classroom at Yeshiva University almost a year ago, little did I know that I would be contributing to a mission that has become essential for Jews and for our nation. As a new professor, I had hoped to be part of a multi-year effort to enhance the secular education at Yeshiva.

Biden bows to left-wing staff on Israel

April 11, 2024  •  The Washington Examiner

In the immediate aftermath of the Oct. 7 Hamas assault on Israeli civilians, President Joe Biden showed sympathy and support for Israel. Even as news of that day's horrors, including the death of 30 Americans, continued to come out, Biden's sympathy and support was not shared across his administration.
