On Spartacus and Crucifixion, Democrats and Kavanaugh, and Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur


I rarely publish political or social commentary during the Jewish Holy Season. I just do not have the time. Not only do I have a law practice of twenty-plus years, a second simultaneous career of fifteen years as an adjunct professor of law, a family and friends, and a Yankees team to sweat over while […]

What Witch Hunt? Look at All the Indictments and Convictions Now Flowing In!


It is the most common Democrat/ Liberal/ Seedier Media defense of the Mueller Witch Hunt: “What ‘witch hunt’? Look at all the indictments and convictions! Flynn pleaded guilty. Cohen pleaded guilty. Manafort was convicted on eight counts.” You can set it to music, with lyrics in perfect rhythm (but only occasionally): On the twelfth month of […]

All the Talk About Impeaching the President Is Nonsense


F irst a preliminary word from someone whose published writings of the past two years demonstrate quite clearly why these past nineteen months under President Trump mark him already as one of America’s greatest Presidents in contradistinction to the nightmare of the prior eight years that saw one of America’s three or four worst-ever Presidents occupying […]

Charlottesville and Masked Antifa, Omarosi, Brennan…


During a busy fortnight when it is impossible to comment daily on the inanity and insanity of the 24-hour Fake News cycle in Year 2 of the Age of Trump, there is a certain equanimity that comes with realizing that so many of the daily crises are not crises at all, and that so much […]

On Learning to Root for A-Rod and Manafort


We have a delightful fellow visiting town this summer while doing a sports-related internship. Like me, he is a huge baseball fan, a Yankees fan to boot. He still is grieving over the Divisional race that now seems lost for New York in the AL East; by contrast, I calmly await the Wild Card game that […]

As the Swamp Turns


It never ends, does it? The daily cable-news soap opera installment. A new crisis every day. Sex. Money. Secret tapes. A stripper whose upper torso gives new meaning to the term Silicon Valley. And then her media-frenzied lawyer steeped in his own fun-to-watch divorce. Bring out the popcorn. Pull out some Raisinets. Refill the Coke and Pepsi. […]

There’s No Business Like Shoah Business


Adolf Hitler was elected March 5, 1933. He burned Jewish holy books publicly in Spring 1933. He issued the Nuremberg Laws in September 1935. On November 9-10, 1938, he sent his Stormtroopers throughout Germany, burning down shuls (Orthodox synagogues) and temples (non-Orthodox Jewish houses of worship) and Jewish-owned stores, pillaging them and leaving German sidewalks strewn with broken glass — hence […]

Everyone Is Smart Except Trump


It really is quite simple. Everyone is smart except Donald J. Trump. That’s why they all are billionaires and all got elected President. Only Trump does not know what he is doing. Only Trump does not know how to negotiate with Vladimir Putin. Anderson Cooper knows how to stand up to Putin. The whole crowd […]

Coming Clean on My Baseball Addiction Before the WaPo Exposé 


Any day now the Washington Post will be exposing my baseball addiction. Therefore I come clean now in advance. Maybe I got in with a wrong crowd in yeshiva elementary school and yeshiva high school, but I became an avid sports fan as early back as I can remember. I recall something of the 1961 baseball season, with […]

Kavanaugh: The Perfect Choice for the Season of Resistance


I would like for President Trump to name Judge Antonin Scalia to the United States Supreme Court. Alas, we get only one Justice Scalia in the course of a nation’s history. So we accept reality, and we move on. (Just not dot-org.) It is by now a meme: Democrats always get the exact liberal-for-life Supreme Court justice they want […]
