This has been a heartening week for those who despair of the future and younger generations. First came a story noting that the current youngest generation is, in many ways, more conservative than their parents. And now this: a study by a University of Utah researcher found that younger Americans are less likely to cheat on their spouses than older Americans are.

Despite living in a relentlessly sexualized atmosphere filled with amoral messages from the media, the number of Americans who admit to having extramarital affairs has held steady at around 16% for many years. But starting around 2004, the number over 55 (those who lived through the so-called “Sexual Revolution”) who admit cheating on their spouses began rising, while the number of adulterers below 55 began falling. In addition, the rate of teenage sex has dropped significantly since 1990. Despite all the talk of open marriages and multiple partners, the researcher predicts that “we should anticipate a future of more monogamous marriage.”

The reason isn’t clear, but one theory is that young people have been watching their elders and concluding that sex without limits isn’t making people happier. Maybe that will go down as the best legacy of the ‘60s hippie, "free love" generation: that it served as a very effective bad example to America’s youth.

Progressive Sharia?!?

July 7, 2017

If you don’t know Linda Sarsour, she’s a major name in the “progressive” movement, and at the forefront of the strange bedfellow alliance of hard leftists and Islamists. She’s the former executive director of the Arab American Association of New York and a hijab-wearing, Palestinian-supporting Muslim activist as well as a Bernie Sanders-supporting co-chair of both the Women’s March and the Day Without A Woman protest. She’s been accused of supporting Hamas and bringing Sharia law to the US, although she denies those accusations. She and her supporters claim that rightwing sources misrepresented her by circulating “fake news” to make her look bad.

Okay, I did the disclaimer. Now, here’s what Linda Sarsour just said, quoted directly in her own words. If this is someone whom the “progressive” movement is willing to embrace as a leader and spokesperson, then decide for yourself whether these are people who should be entrusted within a thousand yards of the levers of US government power.

Today, President Trump will finally speak with Vladimir Putin. Perhaps Putin will explain to him (and the rest of us) why he allegedly preferred to help elect a US President who wanted to rebuild the US military and American international leadership, defend Ukraine from Russia and bury Russia’s vital energy industry, instead of the woman who’d already sold him a fifth of our uranium supply. Enquiring minds want to know!

In case you missed Trump’s speech in Poland, you should definitely watch it online. It might be the best speech he ever gave, a ringing defense of national sovereignty and the values and worth of Western culture. And as Charles Krauthammer pointed out, it was the toughest attack on Russia since Reagan, one that blew the whole media-concocted “Russian collusion” hoax to smithereens.
