Facing Our Demons Straight

 

So let me get this straight. The President of the United States went to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, with his First Lady and his Jewish daughter and son-in-law to honor the eleven Jews shot while worshiping in a synagogue, and 2,000 citizens thought this was a fine opportunity to picket him for ostensibly being a racist? Clearly […]

Uncle Samuel Needs You

 

You thought you were casually reading a film review and here I am giving you an assignment. Take 12 dollars (or the price of movies in your area) per family member and run to see The Samuel Project. It was released in New York and Washington September 28, and will reach 40 cities by October […]

Russian Collision: Why 2016 Was Different

 

Rush Limbaugh challenged his audience on Monday. Why, he asked, are we treating Russian meddling in the Presidential election of 2016 as something different from classic Russian mischief in some significant way? In kind rather than in degree. Haven’t the Soviets and then the Russian Federation cast themselves decade after decade as gadflies, provocateurs, troublemakers, […]

Spoliated Brats

 

My grandmother expected me to become a lawyer. I had made up my mind not to, but it took some time for me to work up the courage to give her the news. Eventually a time came when she put me on the spot and I blurted: “Grandma, I want to be a writer. There […]

Democrats Lying Low

 

Democrats lie. Should you ever participate in a parlor game, or a Twitter meme, looking for two-word redundant sentences, our opener today is a sure winner every time. It is better, sharper, more accurate than “Noses run” or “Chips dip.” In fact, it is even marginally more correct than “Republicans cower,” but hopefully the Trump […]

James and the Giant Preach

 

James Comey loves to preach to us lesser mortals about ethics and such. Like Jimmy Carter before him, James Comey has let the J.C. initials get to his head and thinks he can walk on water. Now that he is trying to plug a book at the same time, he is in danger of electrocution. […]

Hillary’s Danger Field, Part Two

 

Rodney Dangerfield is our guest again this week. He opens with this signature line: “My wife, she’s really somethin’. Her father died last week, and she had his body frozen… Every time I go to take a snack, he falls out of the refrigerator!” We thought we had dispensed with Hillary Clinton already, disposed with […]

Hillary’s Danger Field

 

Rodney Dangerfield liked to tell a story about his wife taking the family car out on a shopping trip. When she emerged from the store with her purchases, she saw a thief driving the vehicle right out of the lot. “Did you get a good look at him?” Rodney asked. “No,” she replied. “But I […]

Reclaiming King David

 

Jerusalem is being reclaimed, but the city needs its king. Meir Y. Soloveichik’s article, “King David,” in the January 2017 issue of First Things, should be required reading for any serious thinker trying to rotate his religious and political worlds in synchrony. Unfortunately, after gracing us with the gift of David in First Things first, […]

Rule the Day!

 

Unicorns often prove elusive, but unipartisanship can sometimes bring its own cornucopia. As a singular initiative of Republicans, presided over by Vice President Mike Pence, the United States Senate has passed the long-awaited tax bill, the consequences of which to your pocketbook may be computed at taxplancalculator.com. The Democrat party was uniform in its resistance […]
