Sharia: Coming Soon to a Town Near You!

The text of this article comes almost entirely from an email message of one of my correspondents. The message is filled with such a pain, outrage and frustration that I only slightly edited it, leaving 99 percent of the text intact. This is in New York City on Madison Avenue, not in France or the [...]

The New American Royalty – Ultra-Liberal and Super-Progressive

As much as I want to express my utter outrage at the sight of the new American kings and queens (all progressive!), I’ll still try to restrain myself and operate with dry numbers, not with raw emotions. Here’re several questions for the readers of this article: Question One: What do you think is the cost [...]

What’s More Idiotic: A Holocaust Memorial at the Atlantic City Boardwalk or a Mosque Next to Ground Zero?

The world is abundant in sacred memorials, whose dignity shouldn’t be violated under any circumstances:
It’s impossible to imagine a farmer’s market in the middle of the Arlington Cemetery in Washington, DC.
It is sacrilegious to build an amusement park on the plaza next to the Western Wall in Jerusalem.

A Mendacious Interview: Obama Speaks to Israelis

“The Holy Koran tells us: ‘Be conscious of God and speak always the truth.’ That is what I will try to do – to speak the truth.”
Barack Obama, Cairo, June 4, 2009
Everybody knows that most politicians are liars. And politicians with legal education are, more often than not, double-liars. And if these lawyer-politicians were [...]

Obama Sits on the Fence at Our Southern Border reported on July 1st:
In his speech Thursday at American University in Washington, Obama seemed to suggest that border security isn’t that important in passing immigration reform. In fact, he raised doubts that the border could be secured at all. “America’s borders are “just too vast” for the immigration problem to be solved with fences [...]

Smashing the Last Statue of Stalin

The prominent Yugoslav dissident writer, Milovan Djilas, wrote in his book, Conversations with Stalin:
Every crime was possible to Stalin, for there was not one he had not committed. Whatever standards we use to take his measure, in any event – let us hope for all time to come – to him falls the ‘glory’ of [...]

General McChrystal and the Lost Opportunity to Teach Obama a Thing or Two

General Stanley McChrystal should have told Barack Obama what General James Scott (“Gentleman Jim”) had told President Jordan Lyman fifty years ago:

A New Twist in the Obama Cult of Personality (Part II)

A kind soul, with the nice-sounding pseudonym TipofTXTeaParty (which reveals that he/she is probably a Texan, deeply involved with the Tea Party), placed this commentary to my June 21st blog “A New Twist in the Obama Cult of Personality”:
