Hillary’s Bomb

 

Those political and cultural analysts who think the Bill and Hillary Clinton marriage is a sham are doubly wrong. First, they need to take the E from Dan Quayle’s potatoe and spell shame properly. Second, the marriage is so real they have collaborated on the most eventful step in recent governmental history (as well as […]

Don’t Beat Up on el-Sisi

 

The Trump administration is picking a fight with Egypt, denying $95 million in aid and delaying another $195 million because Egypt is failing to make progress on respecting human rights and democracy. The Egyptian foreign ministry released a statement arguing this reflects “poor judgment of the strategic relationship” between the United States and Egypt. More […]

Georgia On Their Minds

 

Well, the Democrats worked their Ossoff but Handel is still the Messiah. The results are in from the 6th Congressional district in the state of Georgia, and the Republicans have held the seat formerly occupied by Doctor Thomas Edmunds Price, the orthopedist and prominent Obamacare skeptic. Price is the only American to go from doctor […]

No Omertà for Olmert

 

Diederik van Hoogstraten has done a fine job in these pages reviewing Norman  for dramatic content and performances, particularly the challenging role entrusted to Richard Gere. It has not been a financially successful run to date, bringing in less than a million dollars since its April 14 open. But as a political and personal statement by […]

Opening Day: On The Map, Off The Charts!

 

Why is this Day different from all other Days? Yes, this Opening Day in baseball is different from the previous 108 openers. Major League Baseball begins play this year with the Chicago Cubs as defending champions. The perennial underdogs, the happy hapless, the ultimate outsiders, are now in charge… but let us avoid politics and […]

Coming to Terms With Two Terms

 

Darn it, I wish I could remember the name of this short story by the late Noble Prize winner, Shmuel Yosef Agnon. It goes like this. The Jews in a small Eastern European village (shtetl), circa 1900, have never seen a convert to Judaism. In those days of hardship for Jews, they were not attracting many new […]

Miller Time

 

President Trump had himself a great press conference, which included business advice to the Cable News Network (CNN): Tell the truth and see what happens! That is akin to asking Planned Parenthood to tell expectant mothers to plan to be parents. Or to tell Politifact to be factual instead of political. This was the climax […]

Obama’s Shake-and-Break Chicken

 

It did not take a hack by the Russians or a leak by the Wikis to unearth what President Obama thinks of Benjamin Netanyahu. A helpful staffer of his shared with an Atlantic feature writer some years back that O. thinks N. is chicken**** because he does not take bold strides for peace. My own […]

Where the Hell Is Fidel?

 

Somehow, ingeniously, Fidel Castro went from first to second fiddle without a jarring chord, so brother Raul was in charge long enough during Fidel’s lifetime, enabling Fidel to achieve interment without event. Now the nine-day period of official mourning is at an end, and the Bay of Pigs flows uninterrupted. For a loudmouth Fidel went […]

Scholar Shipwrecked: An Unexpected Clinton Sycophant

 

As a teenager, more than four decades ago, I finally scraped a few dollars together to buy my first volume of contemporary commentary on Talmud. The tome I proudly purchased was authored by a student at Yeshiva University, Menachem Genack, only five or six years my senior. In the introduction, he described his mentor, Rabbi […]
