Biden’s Failure In Afghanistan Is His Alone

Originally published August 18, 2021 https://www.queensjewishlink.com/index.php/opinion/5015-biden-s-failure-in-afghanistan-is-his-alone After the cataclysmic debacle of the fall of Afghanistan to the Taliban, Joe Biden took a break from his vacation to address the American people. In his speech, he blamed Trump and the Afghanis, but the blame is his. Then he refused to take questions from the media and went back on his vacation. America does not have a leader. “When I came into office,” Biden said, “I inherited a deal that President Trump negotiated with the Taliban. Under his agreement, US forces would be out of Afghanistan by May 1, 2021, just a little over three months after I took office... The choice I had to make as your president was either to follow through on that agreement or be prepared to go back to fighting the Taliban in the middle of the spring fighting season.” Putting aside the false dichotomy for a moment, Joe Biden has built his presidency on reversing every Trump p

An Open Letter To Our Schools

 Originally published August 18, 2021 https://www.queensjewishlink.com/index.php/style-living/5014-an-open-letter-to-our-schools To the administrators and school boards of the Jewish schools of New York: There is a large number of parents of students in your schools - some silent, others not - who do not want you to mandate our children to be vaccinated or masked to attend your institution.  Our detractors will claim that this position is anti-science or we do not have in mind the best interests of our child or their classmates.  This is the opposite of the truth.  As we all know, it is the responsibility of parents to put our children's health and safety first. The main fear is that the children will spread the virus to the teachers or other adults, but children should not be forced to get vaccinated or mask up to protect adults.  Adults must protect children, and for children to be forced to protect adults is logically and morally backwards. If the issue were children getting oth

They Will Never Give Back Your Freedom

The Delta variant is the latest, greatest example of this power grab. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has mandated vaccine passports for many indoor activities. He did this on the basis that not enough people are vaccinated, and the Delta variant could cause a third wave in the city. Dr. Anthony Fauci began recommending wearing masks indoors again. The CDC echoed him and changed their guidance to do so. National Institutes of Health Director Dr. Francis Collins said that parents should mask at home in front of their unvaccinated children (he later walked that back)

The Great Vaccine Misdirect

This is why they are trying to convince the American people to pay close attention to the “evil” Republicans who are providing less-than-approved statements about the vaccine.  These comments are mocked, derided, and censored - yet rarely refuted.  But this is the ammunition that the media uses when trying to get every single right-of-center source

Boycott Ben & Jerry’s

 Originally published July 21, 2021 https://www.queensjewishlink.com/index.php/opinion/4881-boycott-ben-jerry-s On Monday, Vermont-based ice cream manufacturer Ben & Jerry’s decided to take their leftist ideology to the next level by pulling their products from “Occupied Palestinian Territories.”  This move comes directly from the left-wing playbook on the Palestinian people, which is not about helping them, but rather attempting to hurt the Jews.   “We believe it is inconsistent with our values for Ben & Jerry’s ice cream to be sold in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT),” the company said in a statement.  “We also hear and recognize the concerns shared with us by our fans and trusted partners.” They claim that they plan to stay in Israel, which immediately prompted many Leftists on Twitter to confirm that the BDS movement and their allies consider all of Israel to be “Occupied Palestinian Territory.” This is not Ben & Jerry’s first foray into politics.  The founders

As Cubans Yearn For Freedom, Democrats Celebrate Tyranny

 Originally published July 14, 2021 https://www.queensjewishlink.com/index.php/opinion/4853-as-cubans-yearn-for-freedom-democrats-celebrate-tyranny This past weekend, tens of thousands of Cubans took to the streets to demand an end of the dictatorship that has ruled their lives for three generations.  Waving American flags and chanting “Freedom,” these Cuban dissidents are risking their lives to have a hope of liberty. Meanwhile, the Left in the United States is increasing its march towards tyranny. After failing to meet its July 4 th  vaccination goal, the Biden administration has grown increasingly frustrated with the American people.  Since the beginning of the pandemic, the federal and state governments have infantilized their constituents, and they view vaccine hesitancy like a parent would a rebellious teenager.  Former Obama Health Secretary Kathleen Sebelius wants schools and businesses to require vaccination. “I’m trying to restrain myself, but I’ve kind of had it,” she said.

Missouri Representative Cori Bush led the parade when she tweeted, “When they say that the 4th of July is about American freedom, remember
