The official website and daily blog of syndicated columnist and author Ben Shapiro

Praise for Ben Shapiro...

"Ben Shapiro writes columns from the university that tell basic truths with verve."
Daniel Pipes

"Benjamin Shapiro... future president of
the United States."

Larry Elder

"Ben Shapiro's columns are smart, informative and incisive. He is wise beyond his years without losing the refreshing fearlessness of youth."
Ann Coulter

"If you haven't yet partaken of Ben Shapiro's writings you are missing out. His columns are crisp, witty and topical. More than that, they are provocative, controversial and courageous."
David Limbaugh

"After battling in the trenches of liberal college student press, Ben Shapiro has emerged as a forceful and unequivocal writer to bring views that are underrepresented in mass media."
Ward Conerlly

"That invigorating breeze from the west is Benjamin Shapiro, whose crisp commentary proves that wisdom sometimes comes with youth, too."
Jeff Jacoby

"Wise beyond his years . . ."

"A columnist who sees the world as it really is and knows how it could be."

"The Lies of George W. Bush"

I had the privilege the other day of meeting David Corn, the Washington editor of the far-left Nation magazine while being interviewed on the wonderful Scott Hennan Show on WDAY 970 in North Dakota. I've had a chance to chat with him, and though we don't agree about anything, he is certainly a bright fellow and a terrific writer. As far as his accusations that President Bush is a "liar," I'll discuss it in next week's column, barring any pressing topics. It seems that liberals are so eager to equate George W. Bush with Clinton that they are willing to interpret honest mistakes as purposeful lies. (Sidenote: At least those liberals who accuse Bush of lying acknowledge that he's smart enough to lie. Other liberals simply write Bush off as dumb, and leave it at that.)

Where Frist failed

The "anti-filibuster filibuster" that the Republicans unleashed on the Democrats last week was a complete fiasco from start to finish. My latest column discusses why, and what Republicans can do about it in the future.

Run, Al, run!

I'm willing to donate cash to Al Franken's proposed campaign for Minnesota governor in 2008. I'd love to see him run. How much fun would that be? Could Michael Moore be his campaign manager? Find out in this week's column.

Prayer Alliance

Over at Kevin McCullough's, Kevin is talking about starting a prayer group. The purpose: praying that our enemies, the terrorists, awaken to their evil and stop perpetrating violence against innocents and the righteous. I'm joining the group, in the following way: I'll pray that the terrorists wake up and smell the coffee. I'll also pray that if they don't, righteous nations like the United States, Great Britain and Israel have an extremely easy time putting them out of commission, whether through arrest or through targeted killing. In this case, the terrorists have one choice: cut it out, or face the consequences. I'll pray that they choose to cut it out. I'll pray that if they do not, the consequences will fall upon them in every way imaginable.

Finding a blog friend out in barren LA

I met a terrific guy and wonderful blogger tonight; his blog is Aaron's Rant Blog, and everyone should add his blog to their favorite places. It's informative, hilarious, and incisive to the max. Check out his post regarding how much charity Democratic and Republican states give -- his info is astounding, or should be for those "compassionate" liberals who profess to love the poor. Perhaps they'd best check their wallets before criticizing the generous "hicks" down in Mississippi.

Check these out

I recommend checking out my good friend Kevin McCullough's blog to find out why the Democrats will be screaming come election time -- he's got all the economic stats you'll need to make fun of your liberal friends who are still whining about the "worst economy since Herbert Hoover."

I also recommend checking out Steven Plaut's blog -- if you've never read his stuff, you're missing out. He hits the mark every time when it comes to Israel.

The scoop on Yitzchak Rabin

In Israel, it has become largely against the law to "slander" Yitzchak Rabin's memory. If you do, you're lumped together with Yigal Amir. Of course, if you oppose any policy of the left-wing Israeli establishment, you risk secular excommunication. Still, people must know that Yitzchak Rabin was no hero. Find out why in my latest column.
