BOOK REVIEW: 'A Time to Build'

Yuval Levin is worried about the increasing dysfunction in American society.

False information was used to secure the ability to employ electronic surveillance on at least one relatively junior campaign official which may have created a chain of information, obtained surreptitiously, leading to the candidate himself.

Judeo-Christian underpinnings

In North Korea, one poor soul reportedly tested positive for the coronavirus. Unfortunately for him and his family, he was immediately shot and killed. That is North Korea's way of preventing the spread of the coronavirus. Fortunately, America is different and operates under a different set of values.
