    The left’s partisan push to pack the Supreme Court with liberal justices has fully migrated from the fringes into the mainstream of Democratic politics. It wasn’t long ago that liberal icons, including the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, were against the idea of overhauling the court for political gain. But now, in the Biden era, more and more powerful Democrats are getting behind the cause, claiming the high court is broken and actively dismantling our democracy. Even Joe Biden—who once called court-packing a “bonehead idea”—gave in to the progressive wing of his party, appointing a committee to examine “reforms” to...read more

    'Your child can achieve great things.' A few years ago, pregnant women in four corners of the world heard those words and hoped they could be true.

Greatness? It was an audacious thought, given their circumstances. But they had new cause to be hopeful: they were...read more

    On September 17, 1862, the 'United States' was on the brink, facing a permanent split into two separate nations. America's very future hung on the outcome of a single battle--and the result reverberates to this day. Given the deep divisions that still rive the nation, given what unites the country, too, Antietam is more relevant now than ever. The epic battle, fought near Sharpsburg, Maryland, was a Civil War turning point. The South had just launched its first invasion of the North; victory for Robert E. Lee would almost certainly have ended the war on Confederate terms. If the Union prevailed, Lincoln stood ready to issue the Emancipation Proclamation. He knew that freeing the slaves...read more

The evisceration of the middle class over the last fifty years has made many Americans dependent on the federal government....read more

    As children, we are captivated by stories of huge fantastical creatures, such as the wooly mammoth and the pterodactyl.

McIsaac gathered stories from the elders of the First Nation those who were formerly referred to as Indians, Native Americans, or Aboriginals. First Nation elders provided McIsaac with detailed descriptions of six species long thought to be extinct.
