Shades of Churchill’s ‘Iron Curtain Speech’

(My American Thinker post) It was a remarkable speech. PM Netanyahu spoke clearly, forcefully, and eloquently about the nuclear deal. This is one of those "must-watch speeches" that comes along once a generation. It reminded us of another statesman who came to the U.S. many years ago. It was on March 5, 1946 that the then former PM […]

What if you had used your private email account……?

On a normal day, this story would have led the newscast.  Of course, most of the media today is talking about the amazing speech by the Primer Minister of Israel. Nevertheless, the Clintons are doing their magic again, or pushing ethics to the limit. Today, we learned this about Secretary of State Clinton: "Hillary Rodham […]

Obama’s version of “the chickens coming home to roost”

Back in 2008, Rev Wright became famous for that line about "the chickens coming home to roost", or a reference that America had it coming on 9-11. Incredibly, we've just found something rather interesting. It is very relevant because it was written by Barack Obama before he became a national figure at the 2004 Democrat […]

What Is President Obama So Mad About?

President Obama kept the U.S. Congress out of the loop for 18 months during his secret negotiations with Communist Cuban officials. Why is he so upset with Speaker Boehner for bypassing the White House by inviting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address a joint meeting of Congress on March 3, 2015? I will be watching […]

The Answer to ISIS is Midnight Basketball

Wonder when they will suggest midnight basketball?  We need to have these men put down their "machetes" and pick up a basketball.      So let's form the Kareem Abdul Jabbar League and get them to play pick up basketball!  We will all be "safe" after that!     Click to read: http://cantotalk.blogspot.com/2015/02/the-answer-to-isis-is-midnight-basketbal.html

1898: Remember The Maine

On this day in 1898, US and Cuba politics came together because of the "Maine": "A massive explosion of unknown origin sinks the battleship USS Maine in Cuba's Havana harbor, killing 260 of the fewer than 400 American crew members aboard........ Within three months, the United States had decisively defeated Spanish forces on land and sea, and […]

Abraham Lincoln was born on this day in 1809

We remember Abraham Lincoln today.  He was born on a day like this in 1809.   No one is indispensable.  However, Lincoln comes as close to indispensable as any American ever as you can read in Power Line: "Today is of course the anniversary of the birth of America’s greatest president, Abraham Lincoln. As a politician and as […]

Argentina, the Dysfunctional Nation

(My new American Thinker post) Twenty years ago, a horrible terrorist act killed 87 and injured over 100 in Buenos Aires, Argentina.  It was the worst terrorist in this hemisphere before 9-11. It targeted Jews at a major Jewish Center. Sadly, we are still waiting for a formal explanation of what happened. How does the murder of 87 people remained […]

Dr. Carson the extremist?

(MY NEW AMERICAN THINKER POST) Please cue up the "Twilight Zone" theme, because this story would qualify as an episode. According to news reports (based on original reporting by Legal Insurrection),  the left has found a new person to demonize and his name is Dr. Ben Carson: "An iconic American civil rights group that was founded to fight […]
