Taking back the word “jihad” won’t help American Muslims

Last week, it was reported that Muslim activist Linda Sarsour was inciting American Muslims to wage “jihad” against Donald Trump and his administration.

Hamburg and Poland: Two starkly different visions for the future

President Donald Trump channeled his inner Ronald Reagan at the Warsaw Uprising memorial in Poland last week.

The jobless kneeler: Don’t blame racism for Kaepernick’s unemployment

Since Kaepernick was just a hair away from a Super Bowl ring in 2013, the athlete-turned-activist has seen his defense retire one-by-one, then his own skills decline, then his starting spot handed to Blaine Gabbert. While things haven’t been easy for the quarterback in identity crisis, you can’t exactly blame the NFL for turning their […]
