  • The Post Millennial Justin Trudeau is an actor, not a prime minister Monday March 11th, 2019
    Justin Trudeau’s “contrition” session with the press turned out to be a nothingburger. He did not apologize. He would only cop to an “erosion of trust” between his guy, Gerald Butts, and Jody Wilson-Raybould, implying that Canadians should be blaming Mr. Erosion, not him. He allowed as how “there is always room for improvement,” the kind of thing one sees written on one’s children’s report card...
  • National Post Congratulations, women, on being eligible for the draft! Tuesday March 5th, 2019
    On June 30, 1982, “STOP ERA” campaigners in the United States celebrated the expiration of the Equal Rights Amendment’s constitutional ratification, finally killing it 10 years after its 1972 passage in Congress.Their sticking point was that the ERA’s ratification would have forced women into registration for the military draft, to which they were strongly opposed. In...
  • National Post Left-wing attacks are forcing us to hold our law conference in secret Tuesday February 26th, 2019
    The SNC-Lavalin scandal has Canadians fixated on justice and the rule of law.The timing could not be better for a charity called Canadians for the Rule of Law (CFTRL), which is hosting a full-day “National Teach-in” in Toronto on March 17, entitled, “The New Taboo: Respect for the Rule of Law in Canada.” It was planned long before the present political brouhaha, and isn’t c...
  • National Post Another fine event the left wants killed Tuesday February 26th, 2019
    The SNC-Lavalin scandal has Canadians fixated on justice and the rule of law.The timing could not be better for a charity called Canadians for the Rule of Law (CFTRL), which is hosting a full-day “National Teach-in” in Toronto on March 17, entitled, “The New Taboo: Respect for the Rule of Law in Canada.” It was planned long before the present political brouhaha, and isn’t c...
  • CJNEWS Kay: A binge-worthy look at haredi life Tuesday February 26th, 2019
    In the past, on social occasions, it could be awkward when people ran out of topics for conversation, especially if one’s interlocutor was not bookish, thus preventing discussion about the latest good read. This is no longer the case. One only has to ask: “What are you enjoying on Netflix these days?” and the floodgates open. The supply of high-end, intelligent entertainment that Netflix (et al...
  • The Post Millennial Canadian sports “experts” embrace misogynist practices to please trans activists­ Monday February 25th, 2019
    Months ago, I tweeted that sports would be “where the rubber hits the road” on deference to trans ideology, because affirmation in sport of biological males who identify as women cannot co-exist in harmony with a level playing field for women. That burning smell? Rubber is hitting the road—hard. The latest incident in women’s medal erasure comes from Connecticut, where two transwomen sprinters ...
  • National Post Revisiting the many massive failures of Parkland, one year later Wednesday February 20th, 2019
    Last week, mourners and supporters commemorated the first anniversary of a school massacre, especially horrific even by American standards. On Feb. 14, 2018, Nikolas Cruz, a former student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., wielding an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle, murdered 14 students and three staff members during 11 minutes of unchecked havoc.Florida was quick to ena...
  • The Post Millennial Trans activists hate these two powerful women Monday February 18th, 2019
    Today, Reader, I bring you a tale of two young women—one Canadian, one American. Both are as smart as the proverbial whips and, more important, heroically resistant to extraordinary pressure by trans activists to disappear them from public life.Their common “crime” is insisting on the right of women to be acknowledged as a unique phylum in the human biological kingdom, with lesbians as a unique...
  • National Post The euthanasia slippery slope is here Tuesday February 12th, 2019
    Last week marked the four-year anniversary of the Supreme Court ruling that validated Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID). At the time, many euthanasiasts confidently predicted that there would be no “slippery slope” toward abuses. Since the procedure was being justified on the basis of self-determination, “consent,” it was strenuously affirmed, would be de rigeur.As A...
  • The Post Millennial Trump, Northam, infanticide, blackface, and the fury of Democratic women Thursday February 7th, 2019
    If you watched Trump’s State of the Union address Tuesday evening, your eye would have been drawn to the cadre of Democratic congresswomen all dressed in white as a kind of upscale, sedentary version of the Women’s March, signifying their support of women and their #resistance to Donald Trump. All that was missing were the pussy hats.To me, it seemed kind of a sophomoric, ironically “Stepford W...
  • National Post A joke is all in the delivery (do you hear me, son?) Tuesday February 5th, 2019
    I finally got around to watching The Marvellous Mrs Maizel on Amazon Prime. I love it.I love Miriam “Midge” Maizel, whose trajectory from dutiful Jewish 1950s housewife to struggling, then successful standup comedian constitutes the main story arc. I identify with her and her era. My mother was also obsessed with clothes. I too wore pointy bras and flared skirts. And I too was pr...
  • CJNEWS Kay: The cesspool of anti-Semitism on the left Thursday January 31st, 2019
    Bernie Farber devoted his latest column to concerns that a few Jews may have voted for Faith Goldy in Toronto’s recent mayoral election. Goldy is the former reporter for the Rebel Media, whose sympathies for the white supremacists at the August 2017 Charlottesville, Va., rally annihilated her journalism career. Some Goldy-supporting Jews may have voted for her because she is anti-Muslim, just a...
  • National Post Svend Robinson’s return set to boost Israel hate in the NDP Tuesday January 29th, 2019
    He’s back! Svend Robinson will be the NDP candidate for Burnaby North-Seymour in this fall’s federal election. He looks good at 66, brimming with comeback vigour. His ostensible motivation for returning to politics is concern over climate change and the affordable housing crisis. But he has not denied that his real ambition — a realistic one considering Jagmeet Singh’...
  • The Post Millennial “Toxic masculinity” in advertising: keeping women scared and men shamed Friday January 25th, 2019
    Some students of human nature believe that, because our ancestors could only survive as a species human through a constant awareness of danger, we are endowed with an inherent need to be in a “state of fear” about something or other, even if the objective danger is neither existential nor widespread. It’s certainly true that political movements often encourage a state of fear to enhance their i...
  • The Post Millennial Gillette has a problem with men, and now consumers have a problem with Gillette Wednesday January 16th, 2019
    In the last few days, the tables have been turned on Gillette, the world’s most famous name in razors. The company has been getting a very close shave from its customers. There isn’t a styptic pen in the world big enough to stanch the blood flowing from the myriad nicks they’re suffering as punishment for a short film ad they thought would capitalize on the #MeToo zeitgeist to good corporate ef...
  • The Post Millennial Endocrinologists warn against hormone treatment for childhood gender dysphoria Wednesday January 16th, 2019
    I have a transgender friend. She is now in her 50s, so has been taking the relevant hormones for more than 30 years to maintain her female appearance. What I like about Monica (not her real name) is that she is as disapproving as I am of the bullish trans activism that makes light of lifetime hormone usage, and the risks posed by such long-term usage.Monica made her decision as an adult with op...
  • National Post Don’t ever question mass immigration or you’ll be instantly racist Wednesday January 16th, 2019
    Immigration is likely to be the hot-button issue in the next federal election.The National Post has run a series of editorials noting that our legal immigration channels work well, but the issue of border migration is eroding public confidence in immigration.One can understand why. Because of his Kumbaya, “post-nationalist” susceptibility to the blandishments of one-worldist idea...
  • The Post Millennial The American Psychological Association goes to war against boys and men Thursday January 10th, 2019
    The American Psychological Association (APA) has, for the first time in its history, come out with Guidelines for Psychological Practice with Boys and Men. One does not have to have read the entire 30,000 word document to appreciate its thrust: “traditional masculinity” is bad for society as well as to boys and men themselves. Stoicism, competitiveness and risk-taking, the qualitie...
  • The Post Millennial Maclean’s magazine encourages women to regret having children Monday January 7th, 2019
    The article’s headline was meant to grab women’s attention, and I am sure it did: “‘I Regret Having Children’,” a feature article in the February issue of Maclean’s mag, throws a positive light on what the author, veteran journalist Anne Kingston, seems to believe is the opening salvo in a brave new epoch of female liberation, the desanctification of mo...
  • National Post The year I needed a Jewish institutional renewal Thursday January 3rd, 2019
    As a new year dawned, six National Post contributors shared something new they tried in 2018. Below, Barbara Kay takes a spiritual journey.For 46 years our family belonged to a synagogue aligned with the Reconstructionist movement, the only indigenously American branch of Judaism, and decidedly liberal in its tenets. The attraction for me was its combination of intellectual dynamism, gender ...
