Israel, Gaza and the Repulsive Moralists

More than 100,000 Arabs have been killed in the war raging in Syria.  How many more Arabs have been killed in Iraq by other Arabs since the U.S. pulled out all its troops?  How many Arabs have been killed by other Arabs before and since the Arab Spring?  Let’s just say, lots.  And what is…

Israel in the United Nations’ Crosshairs … Again

There are few certainties in life, but one that you can reliably count on is that the United Nations will condemn Israel every chance it gets. Between 2006 when the UN’s so-called Human Right Council was established until 2013, the “humanitarians” on the council condemned Israel 45 times. In fact, it passed almost as many…

Why Are Nearly Half the Voters Still Slobbering Over Obama?

I don’t get it.  According to Rasmussen, 47 percent of likely voters approve of the job President Obama is doing. Yes, it’s true that more disapprove – 52 percent.  And the breakdown reveals that while only 24 percent “strongly approve” of the job the president is doing, 41 percent “strongly disapprove.” But I’m fixated on…

What’s Left of Obama After the Magic

I ran into a guy I know at the gym the other day, a card-carrying liberal from Berkeley. He was puzzled. “Why didn’t Obama go down to the border?” he wanted to know. When a lefty from lib Mecca is wondering what the heck is going on, you know the president has a problem. In…

Why Liberals Like Soccer More than Conservatives

I’ve always been a big sports fan, which explains why I have absolutely no interest in soccer. The fact is, I’d rather watch my accountant get his toenails clipped than take in a soccer game — and that includes the World Cup final, which I’m sure will be as scintillating as any other soccer game. In soccer,…

The Supreme Court and the Phony War on Women

(Editor’s Note:  This column was posted just a few hours after the Supreme Court decision was handed down in the Hobby Lobby case.  But because of a technical glitch we were unable to send out our regular newsletter alert informing you the column was on the site.  If it feels a tad behind the curve,…

Where Obama’s Scandals Go to Die

Of all the “phony scandals” that have plagued the Obama administration – (there’s not enough space on the worldwide web to list them all) – the worst, I think, is the one about the IRS targeting political opponents of the president. Why that one? How about … because it’s the IRS! Every agency of the…

Are We Really the UNITED States of America Anymore?

It shouldn’t surprise anyone that liberals are blaming President George W. Bush for the chaos that is tearing Iraq apart while conservatives are blaming President Barack Obama, who they say inherited a fledgling democracy and did nothing while the country slid into a religious civil war. They’re both right. President Bush started the fire by…
