“Keep Going, Keep Going!”

By Arlene Kushner

I mentioned in my last post the intention to return to the issue of ceasefires, and I will do so below.  But I begin by noting that my greatest fear in this very necessary war we are waging now is that it should be terminated prematurely because of pressure for a ceasefire.  Yet, in spite of that persistent unease, I think not. It’s simply too blatantly clear that we must do now …

Israel flag

It’s on all the lips, in all the media: burning Jewish shops in Sarcelles is anti-Semitic. PM Manuel Valls declared, in an excellent speech at the commemoration of the rafle du Vel d’Hiv [mass roundup of Parisian Jews in 1942], that anti-Semitism was trying to hide behind anti-Zionism. Florian Philippot, VP of the Front National (FN) accused the PM of promoting French self-hatred.  …

Paris 16 July 2014 (anniversary of the rafle du Vel d’Hiv)

Israel, they say, harumph, has the right to defend itself, but…  But not entirely. Both sides are asked to act with restraint. Not exactly both. Because the conflict is lopsided: 37 then 58, 102, and now more than 200 Palestinians killed. The vast majority, according to Palestinian sources, are civilians. Women, children and the elderly, to say nothing of the thousands of wounded. On the …

I’ll tell you the damnedest story you ever heard.

The Soviet Union began a dedicated espionage operation into the United States in the 1920s. This was detailed by Whittaker Chambers in Witness. The biggest fish among the caught spies was Alger Hiss, who practically wrote the original U.N. charter which handed Eastern Europe to the tender mercies of Joseph Stalin.

The Soviets targeted the government, academia, public schools, Hollywood, …

When Washington State Department of Ecology’s Bob Penhale wrote, “I will offer that we must find joy in the hunt, and that the crafty old bucks are the most satisfying to harvest,” he was referring to property owners, not game.

Penhale’s email was sent to Colin Maycock, a San Juan County planner, who immediately objected to the reference when he replied, “I would like to stress that San Juan County staff are not and have never been interested …

CT Gun Owners

By Alan Korwin

The lamestream media told you . . . 

We’re not asking for a gun registration system to keep us all safe, according to leading gun-control advocates, although other leading gun-control advocates do seek a gun-registration system.

A proposed bill, frequently referred to as a “universal background-check system,” which Congress refuses to pass, would enable a gun registration system, according to its critics. It contains language that omits every federal agency, and every federal authority or person from a ban on …

Liberals love living the American Dream; they just can’t afford for their constituents to know it.

Hillary Clinton is determined to convince people that she knows what it’s like to struggle to earn a living; Joe Biden and Michelle Obama have jumped on the bandwagon as well. They don’t realize that their voters could care less whether or not they’re rich or grew up rich, because that’s not why they vote for them. Democrats vote for their politicians because …

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that . . .

Talk is already circulating on what to do to recognize a special firearms anniversary coming up late this year. In October we’ll be recognizing the fact that 20 years ago, millions of decent Arizonans acquired the ability to discreetly carry firearms legally, and virtually no one was harmed — although it required a government permission slip and a lot of red tape at …

The Hill reports that: “Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal (R) signed sweeping gun legislation on Wednesday that some have described as unprecedented. Licensed gun owners will be able to carry their firearms into public places including bars, schools, churches and government buildings, among other areas.

“The NRA called House Bill 60, The Safe Carry Protection Act, ‘the most comprehensive pro-gun bill in state history.’”
