The White House press icon lets her true feelings be known about Jews.

NRB Book Club: Christopher Hitchens on Horowitz and Humor


It sounds like a cliché. “If Hitchens didn’t exist,” wrote Ian McEwan, “we wouldn’t be able to invent him.”
I’m looking at Christopher Hitchens’ latest book. On the front-cover he’s smoking and (my guess) sending secret smoke signals to neo-conservatives. And yet, in the world of politics, no-one appears more complicated than Christopher Hitchens because of [...]

John Hawkins Vs. Robert Reich On The Stimulus


When Barack Obama was originally pushing his ginormous stimulus bill, like many conservatives, I pointed out that it wasn’t going to work.
Among other things, I noted history has shown that stimulus bills of this sort don’t get the economy moving, I pointed out that there wasn’t even that much Keynesian stimulus in the bill  —  and [...]

The good news: The New York Times’ report on Connecticut Senate candidate Richard Blumenthal’s lies about serving in Vietnam has had a dramatic effect on the race. The latest Rasmussen poll has Linda McMahon, the GOP frontrunner, [...]

The Truth Dodger Wannabe Senator


Kudos to The New York Times for exposing the truth-challenged Attorney General Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut, a Democrat running to become Connecticut’s next U.S. Senator.  Mr. Blumenthal has been saying that he had served in Vietnam when, in fact, he never did.  Instead, he received five military deferments and ended up enlisting in the Marine [...]

As the institutional manifestation of George Soros, the Shadow Party operates in two distinct spheres, the financial and the political. The financial nerve center of Soros’s empire is an investment firm called Soros Fund Management LLC, located at 888 Seventh Avenue in Manhattan. Political intrigues are facilitated mainly through the Open Society Institute (OSI), whose [...]
