Does Congresswoman Ilhan Omar raise the question her own allegiance?

Does Congresswoman Ilhan Omar raise the question her own allegiance?
Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has raised eyebrows with some pointed remarks about Israel’s influence on American foreign policy. Omar has taken aim at both the Jewish nation and Jewish supporters here at home, many of whom are members of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). Omar may be unaware of Christian support for Israel,... Read more »

Christians United for Israel may be pro-Israel, but they're not pro-Jew

Christians United for Israel may be pro-Israel, but they're not pro-Jew
When people tell you that they’re members of Christians United for Israel, it’s just a new way of saying, “Some of my best friends are Jews.” Or, like pedophile Roy Moore’s wife, Kayla famously quipped, “One of our attorneys is a JYOOOO.”  To see Mrs. Moore spitting out the word Jew like it was spoiled...

Will the Republic Survive the Tax Bill?

Will the Republic Survive the Tax Bill?
In an Op-Ed piece in The New York Times yesterday, David Leonhardt attempted to assuage our fears about the tax bill destroying America. That piece, entitled The Republic Will Survive the Tax Bill makes some great points, but I remain unconvinced. Following is the email I sent to Mr. Leonhardt: Dear David, I am a... Read more »

What If the Arabs Have Made Concessions to Israel That Nobody Knows About?

What If the Arabs Have Made Concessions to Israel That Nobody Knows About?
We always talk about the Arabs making demands of Israel as a precursor to peace talks while refusing to make any concessions themselves. Is it possible that the so-called Palestinians have made concessions about which we have not heard? The short answer is, “No.” A more complete answer might be, “What are you, nuts?” During...

Ambassador Samantha Power's Last Vote in the United Nations May be a Cowardly Abstention

Ambassador Samantha Power's Last Vote in the United Nations May be a Cowardly Abstention
Last week’s vote in the United Nations Security Council may be Samantha Power’s last vote as an ambassador to the U.N.. If that turns out to be the case, it may be a vote that will define and haunt her for years to come. It would be disingenuous not to point out that Ambassador Power’s... Read more »

Rahm Emanuel, Chuy Garcia, an ironworker and a teacher go into a bar.....
I did a small piece on the upcoming runoff between incumbent Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and his challenger, Jesus “Chuy” Garcia.  You can read it here, if you’re so inclined. The object of that piece was to summarize the February 24, 2015 mayoral election with a nod to Chuy, saying that Mayor Emanuel may have... Read more »

Chris Matthews takes Netanyahu to task on the two-state solution

Chris Matthews takes Netanyahu to task on the two-state solution
On his show, Hardball, Chris Matthews questioned Israeli Prime Minister Bejamin Netanyahu’s motives for appearing before a joint session of the U.S. Congress.  He never questioned the motives of Speaker of the House, John Boehner, who invited Bibi to appear. Boehner’s singular motivation allows little room for speculation. That speech is old news now and... Read more »

Netanyahu and Obama both scored some points yesterday

Netanyahu and Obama both scored some points yesterday
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (hereinafter referred to as “Bibi”) and President Obama (hereinafter referred to as “The Prez”) each got to chalk one up in the “win” column yesterday.  Both victories are a little bit national security, a little bit political one-upmanship. Like the Donnie and Marie song, “A Little Bit Country, A Little... Read more »

Netanyahu and the Pope may soon be coming to a venue near you

Netanyahu and the Pope may soon be coming to a venue near you
Netanyahu and the Pope.  It has a classic ring to it, like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Run DMC or Lennon and McCartney.  Netanyahu could be a rapper, like Matisyahu .  And there was a 1984 movie titled, The Pope of Greenwich Village . You can almost hear a Saudi prince telling his buddies... Read more »

We must destroy Israel and annhialate the Jews

We must destroy Israel and annhialate the Jews
You may find the headline of my little blog-thing horrifying, but keep it in mind.  It is the guiding principle and driving force of the terrorist organization known as Hamas. Hindered by political correctness, we talk about the plight of the Palestinians and legitimize their claims of victimization even as they plot genocide and the... Read more »
