What Happens When They Break Through by the Thousands?

At a time when the world was almost transfixed and lulled to inaction by the ongoing slaughter of human beings in Syria, the new wave of protests at the Gaza border have once again motivated the UN and the European Union to order investigations. Thousands have been approaching the border fences in the effort to…

Michael Cohen in the Hot Seat; What’s He Done Wrong?

I am not a lawyer. I am not acting as a lawyer, then having a client (me) as a fool. That’s the wonderful Abraham Lincoln adage assuring us that if we act like lawyers for ourselves we are fools. Yet I am wondering what Attorney Michael Cohen has done that has any plausible effect on…

How Do You Treat a Nation Promising to Annihilate Yours Every Day?

Let’s say you don’t care or understand anything about the Holocaust — that the reduction of Jewish life in Europe to ashes and dust means nothing at this point in time. And let’s say you really hate Israel and you believe, as so many do, Jews and non-Jews alike, that the Palestinians should have Israel…

Two Typical CNN Headlines Tell a Tale about Their Reporting of the News

CNN’s current headlines: Threat to walk out on Kim highlights risks of Trump’s volatile diplomatic approach Comey memos renew questions over Trump’s behavior I am addicted to CNN. Always have been. Always will be… addicted that is. What CNN does is to provide the drug for news addicts like me. The only problem with this addiction is…

What Religion is Your Chicken?

by Stanford D. Horn “Welcome to Chick-fil-A. Before you order your chicken sandwich, have you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior? No? I’m sorry, no food for you! Next, please.” I’ve visited Chick-fil-A restaurants in easily half a dozen states and have never encountered such a greeting. Folks, you know me, I would…

Mud-Slinging Suits Frauds Like James Comey

When I was growing up in the 1960s, J. Edgar Hoover was the FBI Director, was perhaps parading around Washington at night dressed as a woman, having sex with men, and holding files with personal secrets on every significant and insignificant person in the United States. Hoover was vile and evil in every way, although as a…

The Challenge of Legacy

by Edwin Black This is a transcript of my April 11, 2018 keynote address in the Michigan Capitol Rotunda for that state’s official Holocaust Commemoration. Today, I come not just to mourn nor to scorn but rather to warn our world, that is, the world of today whose memories are still whistling and bristling with…

Syria Too Much a Danger to Kill the Murderer Assad

Right after President Trump said he’d be blowing up Assad’s ability to launch chemical attacks on his own people the echoes of the passivist voices who worry about hurting anyone — let alone a monster of a murderer like Assad — all chimed in. “We could be getting ourselves into something bad.” “It isn’t legal…

(Honest) Science is Hardly at Odds with Faith

Much is made of those of faith — or politics differing from those of MSNBC — and their supposed “war on science.” The phrase “climate change denier” — vile in its veiled, condescending comparison between those it describes and the few deluded racists remaining who deny the Holocaust — is common parlance. In fact, such…

Mueller Being Fired? Who Really Cares?

The investigation by Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller is as big a joke bit of liberal Democratic payback as the Republican sponsored investigation into former President Bill Clinton by Ken Starr was the same. Starr spent about $100 million in order to (not) get Clinton impeached. Mueller is well on his way to doing the same…
