I was promised an Apocalypse. Destruction would abound. The economy shut down, there would be death in the streets. Hospitals everywhere would struggle to manage the cases of the disease; beds would line the halls and cots would be placed under tents in the streets. Doctors would fall ill, nurses would succumb to the virus. […]

At a time when Americans have more wealth and opportunities than any other country in the world, so many people are at loose ends and feel desperate as a result. We now have generations who have become convinced that they are guilty of systemic racism and have adopted a new, false religion to alleviate their […]

Join Jim and Greg as they chronicle how Princeton University’s self-flagellation over systemic racism launched a federal investigation into whether they should no longer qualify for taxpayer dollars. They also cringe as two swing states (and, yes, Nevada is one of them) create mail-in voting loopholes that erode confidence in the system. And they hammer Joe Biden for claiming to be for and against fracking in the same answer.

This is a new series, which showcases some amazing young talents. I offer it as a respite from the crazies. Interesting to me, it was recorded in a mansion about 15 miles from my home, which I never knew existed before. I hope you enjoy. Read More View Post

G’day, mates! I just watched a fine video by John Anderson, a former deputy prime minister of Australia. Most of the video addresses issues in America. In this 12-minute video, Anderson reads an op-ed recently published in the Australian: Read More View Post

Join Jim and Greg as they dig into new polling numbers showing millennial and Gen Z voters very unenthusiastic about Joe Biden. They also react to Nashville officials covering up information showing very few COVID transmissions in bars and conspiring to make sure the public did not know. And they enjoy spiking the football on John Kerry by looking back to his 2016 pronouncement that there would never be Israeli-Arab peace outside of a peace deal involving the Palestinians.

Ben Shapiro commented on a Twitter post from a woman who decided that hysterically screaming obscenities was a good thing to share with everyone. Someone purporting to be a doctor apparently thinks that hysterically screaming obscenities is the definition of strength and intelligence:

Join Jim and Greg as they cheer the Abraham Accords and hope President Trump is right that several other Arab nations may soon normalize relations with Israel as well. They also discuss the claims of a possible Chinese whistleblower who claims she has evidence that COVID-19 came from a lab rather than a wet market and the Chinese Communist Party has been covering its tracks ever since. Jim explains why she ought to release whatever she has as soon as possible. And as the “experts” keep insisting states are totally prepared for massive mail-in voting, they groan as Michigan can’t even get the names in the presidential race right on the ballot.

As part of my wellness program, I was asked to state a small step I could take to increase my happiness/serenity. Here’s what I said: “I will learn to laugh at absurdity.” This as opposed to becoming angry, irate, or down-in-the-mouth. Some people are more able to laugh at the news than others. I have […]

This week on “The Learning Curve,” Cara and Gerard are joined by Kelly Smith, founder and CEO of Prenda, a company that helps create flexible learning environments known as microschools. Often described as the “reinvention of the one-room school house,” microschools combine homeschooling, online education, smaller class sizes, mixed age-level groupings, flipped classrooms, and personalized learning. Kelly shares what inspired him to launch Prenda in 2018, and how the COVID-19 pandemic has catapulted microschools to fame. They discuss how Prenda ensures teacher preparation in core academic areas, holds teachers accountable for student outcomes, and works to bridge achievement gaps.
