Mother Teresa (Photo by STR/AFP/Getty Images) The greatest enemy of the poor are those who champion their cause. It sounds counterintuitive. How can this be? Because most of those who lead the charge against poverty have no personal stake in their cause.

The Equality Act has been around for decades, under various names, but it always fails. It will again this year, even if it clears the House; Rep. Nancy Pelosi, the House Speaker, has said the legislation is a priority for the new Congress. If most Americans knew what it is really about, they would not support it.

In all likelihood, future generations will look back at this time in American history as one where fundamental due process rights for men accused of sexual crimes were jettisoned.

Over the last decade, I’ve noticed more and more sex glamorized in teen-geared shows, but Netflix reached a new low with their newly released “Sex Education” TV series. In the last 2 years, Netflix has pumped out many graphic original series like “13 Reasons Why,” which glamorizes suicide and has been linked to several teen deaths. The worst so-called puberty-geared show “Big Mouth” is also a very graphic adult cartoon watched by millions of young people. “Riverdale” season 3 just kicked off last fall, and their trailer depicts witchcraft and ends with a scene of potential baby sacrifice. And these are all top shows watched by teens in America.
