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 […]

Have Jordan Accusers Reported Abuse at Their Work Places?

 

In the viciously cynical American political environment where we now live, it no longer is about quality and competence, skills and ability. It is about destruction of the opponent: destroy them, their character, their children, their family. Just destroy them. For example, let’s show pictures of a girl crying at the southern border when her mother puts her […]

Did You Ever Face a Real Judge?

 

For many of us, our first — and perhaps only — encounter with a real-life judge has taken place in traffic court. We were ticketed, perhaps fairly (more probably unfairly), and the cop — after trying to elicit our confessions and admissions of guilt while writing the citation — ended the brief encounter with his or […]

The Glory of Timely Leftist Overreach

 

It has been a week of historic dimensions, one that future scholars and psephologists will cite as the turning point when the anticipated 2018 mid-term “Blue wave” subsided permanently. The excellent Trump presidency nevertheless continually encounters spurts of sabotage at regular intervals from the Seedier Media. Perhaps no month of the rollercoaster — great Trump […]

Your Mother, Adolf Hitler, and the Closet

 

My first paid job came in my late teens when I was hired to be a counselor at Yeshiva Rambam Day Camp in Brooklyn. I was put in charge of a group of nine-year-olds. One of them was named Jacky. Jacky had a vocabulary consisting mostly of two words. He was not autistic nor otherwise […]

Leaving the UN Human Wrongs Council

 

Three riddles: 1. A Catholic priest, a Protestant pastor, and a Rabbi walk into a bar. What do you call such a bar? Answer: You call it what it is — a bar. 2. In a class of 397 medical students, what do you call the student who has the lowest passing grade? Answer: You […]

On Separating Children From Parents and Incarcerating Orphans for Life Without Parole

 

It never ends, does it? The hypocrisy, the outright lies, and the way that every single news item is spun one way during the Obama and Clinton presidencies and the opposite way during the Trump presidency. Obama had promised, from the majesty of two cardboard or papier-mâché Greek or Roman columns borrowed from a Harvey […]

No Obstruction If Boss Cans Insubordinate Subordinate

 

Now that Justice Department Inspector-General Michael Horowitz has released his nearly 600-page report on his investigation of FBI practices during the course of the Hillary Clinton email probe, one thing is more settled then ever former FBI director James Comey had to be fired as fast as possible. The IG’s findings could not have been more […]
