Eternal Sunshine of the Intolerant Mind

I am an intolerant man. Ask anyone who has ever exchanged anything beyond social pleasantries with me, and they'll confirm it. I am an intolerant man, and this is my manifesto. Once, caught up in the "liberal at 20" portion of the well-known (wrongly attributed) quote about the impact of aging on one's political ideology, […]

The new Iran deal: “Un cuchillo en la espalda de Israel”

The new Iran deal is a perfect storm, or the kind of event that will have huge unintended consequences. Let's look at the elements of this perfect storm: 1) The Obama administration is desperately looking for any kind of legacy.  President Obama is trying to look consequential on the world scene.   Why did he […]

FDR and the Holocaust

Two excellent articles on American Thinker about the Hero of the Dems, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and his subtle anti-semitism. First, a recollection by Edward Bernard Glick, Professor Emeritus of Political Science at Temple University: Eleanor Roosevelt talks about her husband and the Holocaust April 19 will mark the 70th anniversary of the uprising of the Jews […]

“Hatred starts with a word uttered quietly, and then louder, if left unchallenged it is followed by deeds that become habits…”

It is said our WWII veterans seldom talk about their 'war stories', even when asked. However, it is not that they are ashamed. It is because the victory did not come without a lot of loss and pain. The silence of a young boy's decorated Nazi father was driven by the bitterness of loss, and […]

Sen. Marco Rubio Meets with Israeli PM Netanyahu

Heh. The water bottle goes global. That’s one way (maybe the only way) for Marco Rubio to make sure his visit to Israel gets covered by the Water-gate-happy media. Bumping water bottles with Bibi: total “career-ender.” On a helicopter tour with the IDF. More @ Twitchy JERUSALEM — An influential Republican senator has called Jerusalem […]

There is no ‘Palestinian’ state — there never was

And there are still fools out there who believe the claims that have been invented out of whole-cloth by the terrorists who have besieged Israel since its founding... Israel now has a quasi-state to contend with.  "A victory for the values of truth," exclaimed Sudan's U.N. diplomat after the General Assembly voted to admit Palestine […]

Self-loathing

Self-loathing and sleeping with the enemy is a phenomena we know all too well here. This article could easily have been written about a certain type of Cuban, too. As a young Jewish boy growing up in the Bronx, I heard my mother utter the following expression countless times: "there is no anti-Semite like a […]

Senator Rubio Opposes UN Recognition of Palestine

The U.N. vote in favor of granting non-member state status to terrorists, the Palestinians,  no matter how it's spun, is a vote for the destruction of Israel.   I am heartened by Marco Rubio's rapid and unequivocal response: Senator Rubio Opposes UN Recognition Of Palestine Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued the following statement […]

Well Played, Sir Guy, Sir Consiglio and Lady Michaels … Well Played

Apparently today's self-proclaimed "journalists" just can't seem to help themselves in losing their objectivity and unbiased approach to reporting on current events and the news in general much the way they would lose their car keys. They typically expose themselves in their media outlets, but of late many step into the social media pool of […]

Hitting close to home

Our prayers are with everyone in Israel, but especially Ziva, who is there visiting her family in Jerusalem, now under rocket attack from the savages from Hamas, et al. Please say a few prayers for them.

IDF: Boom! Boom! Out Go The Lights

Israel's IDF targeted and took out top Hamas commander Ahmed Jabri today, and the IDF is taking great pleasure in displaying the above photo and captions on their Twitter feed. The IDF has also kindly suggested no other Hamas operatives show their ugly mugs out of doors as they prepare for a possible ground battle. […]

Two stories about Iranian cyber-attackers

Panetta says cyber attackers accessed controls for critical US infrastructure: In a blunt admission designed to prod action, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta Thursday night told business executives there has been a sudden escalation of cyber terrorism and that attackers have managed to gain access to control systems for critical infrastructure. In a speech in New […]

BOMB!: Bibi Netanyahu Dumbs It Down for The U.N. and The MSM Bites

The MSM is finding Netanyahu's visual aid for the stupids at the UNGA "literally cartoonish." I found it exactly what was needed, given the world's mental midgets sitting in front of him... What Bibi did there was let the world know exactly where Israel is drawing the proverbial "red line" in the sand of Iran... […]

Obama The Movie Critic-in-Chief Heads to The U.N. General Assembly With The MSM’s Blessing

This week it is the annual Star Wars bar scene in New York City as leaders of the not-so-free world gather for the UN General Assembly. In the past we have been treated to Hugo Chavez's nosey observations, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's hopeful prayer to hasten the arrival of that ever elusive "12th Imam" to whip everyone […]

The Wife of Univision Executive Chairman and Mega-Donor Nominated as Representative of the U.S. to the U.N. General Assembly

More of that thick and drippy Obama pay-to-play as the wife of Haim Saban is nominated by Obama to represent the USA at the UN. From The Washington Free Beacon... The White House announced Wednesday it has nominated Cheryl Saban, the wife of Univision chairman Haim Saban, to be a representative of the United States […]
