A Ramadan for the world

In the weeks before the holy month of Ramadan, I traveled between New York and Washington, D.C., for a series of historic interfaith events with some of the most prominent religious leaders from around the world.

In pursuit of a president

During the week before this book's publication, The New York Times ran two full feature articles in that week's issues, apparently attempting to distance itself from the book, which would soon be riding the paper's own bestseller list, and from its author, with his disregard "for the usual fact-checking procedures valued by reporters at mainstream news outlets."

Real estate prepared him well

I laughed out loud when I read that Iran's foreign minister dismissed President Trump's olive branch for a peaceful resolution to the Iranian nuclear threat ("Iran will use 'whatever missiles it wants' to stop U.S. aggression, foreign minister warns," Web, June 2).

Pro-life isn't anti-woman

There's a clear trend at play when pro-life males debate pro-choice advocates: Many of the latter argue that men shouldn't be allowed to have an opinion on abortion, that it concerns only women.

Birtherism, smirtherism: Jared Kushner stands ground

- The Washington Times

Newsflash: Jared Kushner defends father-in-law Donald Trump during an interview with Axios that focused, for an eye-rolling bit of time, on the now-president's previous -- i.e., years previous -- questioning of Barack Obama's birth certificate. And all the mentally competent go, umm, how is that a newsflash? Or, in Twitter lingo, WTF.

Follow the lead of God, conservatives in advancement of women

The laws of our nation guarantee equal pay and equal work, and women currently enjoy every protection and advantage under the law as do men. Yes, discrimination of women still exists. Although laws create the legal protections and offer remedies when we are harmed, laws do not change the human heart.

Keeping the Russia collusion hoax alive

Special counsel Robert Mueller's two-year-long fishing expedition found no evidence of the Trump campaign colluding with Russians. So why is Mr. Mueller now hinting that Mr. Trump is somehow guilty after all?

Why does Al Gore keep denying science?

This past Wednesday, May 29, former Vice President Al Gore spoke to the graduating seniors at Harvard University. A summary of his talk? There is an "assault on science" that threatens "the capacity of the human species to endure" on planet Earth.

Iran's limited options

The Trump administration is not trying to incite a war with Iran. It is trying to prevent Iran from doing something stupid that could lead to a real war. The sanctions that the president has levied on Iran are hurting, and Tehran doesn't like it.

Charting Big Tech's hypocrisy

The term that liberals and conservatives have adopted for condemning people who brag about how much they're going to save the world — ideally with as little effort and as many people watching as possible — is "virtue signaling." Lately, corporate America has gotten in on the act. But, the more that corporations indulge in this for cheap wins on social media, the more hot water they're getting into. And Amazon is in lots of it now.

Illustration on the stagnation of wage increases for men by Alexander Hunter/The Washington Times

Are men becoming economically expendable?

Almost all of the economic discussion of late has been on the "wage gap" between men and women. A case in point: California Sen. Kamala Harris wants to create a federal bureaucracy which will ensure that the government has more influence over workers' pay than workers and employers themselves. This will open up a Pandora's Box for trial lawyers as employers find themselves deluged with lawsuits over pay "gaps" real and imagined.
