Resigning to Live With Franken — And With the Democrass Senate

 

That was some resignation, the Al Franken speech at the Senate the other day. As he spoke, all we heard was “I didn’t do nothin’ — and, besides, you can’t prove it!” Some of the accusers, he asserted, were outright liars. As for the others — in so many words, it came down to: “Well, […]

The Middle East ‘Peace Process’ Meme: WHAT Peace Process?

 

Now that he formally has announced that the United States of America fully recognizes Jerusalem as the undisputed capital of the country of Israel, President Donald Trump once again has proven that he is the first American President since Ronald Reagan who actually fulfills campaign promises he made to the American people who elected him. […]

A Crazy Week of Moore Reasons to Vote for Roy Moore

 

As the Alabama race for the United States Senate seat, formerly held by Jeff Sessions, enters its home stretch, developments around the country during this past crazy week underscore why Alabama voters must elect Judge Roy Moore and absolutely must hold that crimson red Senate seat. In this Year of Al Franken and against the […]

My Name Ain’t Bernie Bernstein — And Please Do Indeed Vote for Roy Moore

 

In a disgusting and vile act of right-wing Jew-hatred — something we do not see too much these days, though it lurks primarily among internet trolls — anonymous robo-calls were made to Alabama voters, allegedly by a Washington Post reporter named “Bernie Bernstein,” supposedly aiming to dig up dirt on Alabama Republican U.S. Senate candidate […]

Creeping, Gripping, Groping, and Griping: The Year of Al Franken

 

And so the liberal Democrat double standard plays out again. By now, we are well aware of the extraordinary predilection that certain prominent liberal Democrats — and their bagmen, donors, and fundraisers — have for sexually harassing women, objectifying women, using women as playthings and sex objects, even while giving the other kind of lip […]

Harvey Weinstein? Roy Moore? What About the Crimes of Bill Clinton and Robert Byrd?

 

Harvey Weinstein really started something. Or his cowardly “brave” accusers did. In this new time warp, are there not aspects of bewilderment juxtaposed amid all these unwanted-sex accusations dating back 30 and 40 years? In settled law, we have a concept called “statutes of limitation.” Limitations statutes painfully and regretfully recognize that, with the passage […]

Why Donna Brazile Is No Longer With Her

 

We have fascinated over the Donna Brazile hubbub, with the DNC’s ex-temporary-chairperson adopting Ayn Rand’s “Virtue of Selfishness,” hawking her book shamelessly by disclosing that the Democrat National Committee sold whatever tidbits of soul it may have had to Hillary Clinton before the 2016 presidential primaries even got rolling. Yet the story was all there, […]

Digging Up Dirt on Political Opponents as Benefactor of Schmutz: What Would Jesus Obama Do?

 

As an Orthodox Jew and as a rabbi, my actions are dictated by a sense of “What does the Written Torah (the Five Books of Moses), the Oral Torah (i.e., the Talmud), and the Rabbinic Tradition demand of me?” In a somewhat comparable vein, many of my dearest friends among Christian pastors have told me […]

The Courage of Cowards

 

Approximately 15 years ago, I had a really sweet and cushy job. The job was easy. The hours very reasonable. The pay comfortable six figures. And, for people who did not know what the work environment was like, the job actually was quite prestigious. People begged me to help them get interviews there, to meet […]

Not Strange at All: Mr. Trump Meets His Base

 

Luther Strange had entered the United States Senate temporarily, hand-picked by now-disgraced former Alabama Governor Robert Bentley to sit in the seat that became vacant when Jeff Sessions left the upper legislative chamber to head the Justice Department. On Tuesday night, the rest of Alabama’s Republicans came out to make their own pick. In an […]
