  • A Coming Out Tale: Getting Over My Embarrassment and Calling Myself Religious

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    February 12, 2014 | 12:30 pm

    I have always been cagey when detailing information about myself that might classify me as religious.  Not that I was ever embarrassed or cryptic about telling people I was Jewish.  Telling people I was Jewish when people asked what my Christmas plans were, or just offering up the...

  • Obama Flounders in Face of National Calamity

    By Andrew Dugan

    July 12, 2013 | 11:59 am

    LOS ANGELES. Predictably, liberals have already begun scrambling to connect last night’s devastating storm to Climate Change™ or Global Warming™ or whatever buzzword is trending as of late in that camp—and “don’t get it twisted”: that is exactly the plan. While millions of Southern...

  • Is There Such a Thing As a Liberal Republican-Lover?

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    April 12, 2012 | 7:00 pm

    I was in New York for most of last week with my family.  We had a great time visiting friends, catching up on the art scene, sampling new restaurants and celebrating Pesach at Sammy’s on the lower east side, to which all I can say is one of the Real Housewives of New York sat at...

  • Opinion: How Occupy will end

    October 31, 2011 | 12:15 pm

    No one knows what difference Occupy Wall Street will turn out to make. 

    This could the start of something big.  Maybe the burgeoning sense that something is not right in America will reach a critical mass.  It’s already showing up in the polls.  Maybe more and more ordinary...

  • The Monsters Are Due on Maple Streets

    By Marty Kaplan

    February 21, 2011 | 11:03 am

    The power has gone out in a typical American town.  Wait—it’s not just the electricity.  The phones don’t work, either.  Portable radios are dead.  Cars won’t start. 

    But then lawn mowers and cars and lights inexplicably start and stop on their own. What’s going on?  A...

  • Obama, in the eyes of an activist liberal

    By Susan Freudenheim

    February 10, 2011 | 11:50 am

    Barack Obama has been fated to lead the nation in interesting times, including a free-fall recession, a natural disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, a bitter and ongoing battle over healthcare reform, and the sea-changes that are only now welling up in the Middle East.

    That’s why Obama...

  • Religious Right, Left Find Political Guide in Bible

    By David Klinghoffer

    July 13, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    The fast-emerging religious left contrasts sharply on many issues -- from homosexual marriage to socialized medicine -- with its longer-established competitor, the religious right. Yet these two Bible-citing political movements equally have woken up to the realization that there is...

  • My Work Is Not to Blame for Jew-Haters

    By Bernard Goldberg

    August 4, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    Usually I only respond to fair and thoughtful criticism, but I'll make an exception in this case, because people I respect tell me that Rob Eshman, the editor-in-chief of this publication, is both a smart and decent guy.

    Recently, he wrote a column on July 29 about my new book --...

  • Analysis - Leftists Try to ‘Take Back God’ in 2008

    By Sue Fishkoff

    July 28, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    The 2008 election may be more than three years away, but one group is hoping to press the Democratic Party to infuse spirituality into its platform for that campaign.

    "The right is correct; there is a huge spiritual crisis in America," said Rabbi Michael Lerner, the editor of Tikkun...

  • Goldberg’s List

    By Rob Eshman

    July 28, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    Jewish Americans are only 2 percent of the nation's population, but they are 25 percent of its problem.

    That's according to Bernard Goldberg, whose new, bestselling nonfiction book is called, "100 People Who Are Screwing Up America (and Al Franken is No. 37)."

    The book offers one-...

  • Why the Left-Wing Hand-Wringing?

    By Judy Gruen

    November 18, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    I should have known better than to forward an e-mail recommending a boycott of French products for France's anti-Israel stance and willingness to tend to Yasser Arafat on his deathbed.

    In an age of e-mail overload, forwarding e-mail is already a risky proposition, and usually I am...

  • God, Gays and Guns: The U.S. Fault Line

    By Robert B. Reich

    November 11, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    About the same portion of Americans describe themselves as being liberal (19 percent) as believe that the world will come to an end in their

    lifetimes (17 percent).

    Right-wingers have so effectively besmirched the term ("wishy-washy liberals," "tax-and-spend liberals," "limousine...
