Palestinian Leaders Don’t Want Peace

Image
Every American administration makes an attempt at peace between Israelis and Palestinians.  This conflict, which has been raging for decades, is the Holy Grail of diplomatic wins. The Trump administration is no different, as the administration begins to spread the word about it’s much lauded Mideast Peace Plan.  Bahrain will be the site of presenting the first phase of the plan on June 25-26, if there are willing participants in the event.  There’s only one problem that every plan will have to overcome if they want to be successful; that the Palestinian Authority, Hamas, and other leaders in the region have no incentive for peace.  


For 71 years, Israel has had a state.  Through the multitude of conflicts that ensued in the decades since the establishment in 1948, the borders have expanded and contracted many times; but the State itself remained intact.  In an alternate history, the Palestinian people could have also had a state for the past 71 years. They were given land by the same…

The Faces of Anti-Semitism

Image
This week, in an appalling display of anti-Semitism to the cheers of an elitist crowd, Steven William Thrasher lauded the BDS movement along with other anti-Semitic hate groups at an NYU graduation.  This underscores that there are many types of hate in this world, and the Jewish people must take care to call out each one.

The most dangerous type of hatred that Jews face is the existential threat of white supremacist or radical Islamist terrorism.  The last few attacks on Jews, such as the Tree of Life Synagogue of Pittsburgh and the Chabad of Poway, occurred because of the racist ideology of white supremacy.  The Jewish blood spilled in Israel and around the world by radical Islam is too much to quantify. 

There is a level of nefariousness to the other anti-Semites, the ones who smile and claim to be the sophisticates, the only ones who know what's really going on.  These people hide behind claims of compassion, and signal their virtue from their ivory towers.  That is who Steve…

The Media Smokescreen

The 2020 Presidential race is underway, with two dozen Democrats throwing their hats in the ring to oust President Trump. These contenders have hit the trail hard, with varying degrees of success attempting to separate themselves from the pack. To do so, they are taking policy positions on many issues. The media coverage, however, has been the never-ending rehashing of the 2016 election. This is because the media knows that balanced coverage of some of the key issues facing our nation is bad for 2020 hopefuls, as their proposals would either make the problems worse, or are nationally unpopular. Over the last few weeks, the singular focus has been the Mueller Report and the way it has been handled by Attorney General William Barr. Of course, this is an important story. The president of the United States was under investigation for two years at a cost of over $25 million to the…

Media Cowards Silent As Warren Attacks Fox News

Image
In a Twitter rampage yesterday, 2020 hopeful Elizabeth Warren took a leaf out of the Trump playbook and attacked the media; particularly Fox News.Fox News, which hosts a variety of opinion commentators who do not toe the Democratic Party line like other networks, is used to this treatment from Democrats.A variety of politicians and pundits regularly condemn Fox News and their coverage of the news cycle.However, the silence from their colleagues in “objective” television and print media is nothing short of cowardice.

In November 2018, during a White House press conference, CNN’s Chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta was debating President Trump (which is not his job) when he physically moved the hand of the White House aide who was instructed to take his microphone.As a result of this action and the rude behavior he was displaying, his press credentials were temporarily suspended.Every major media outlet covered the story extensively, and it dominated the news cycle.The media …

John Oliver Defends Green New Deal By Ignoring Green New Deal

Image
The latest 20-minute segment on the HBO show Last Week Tonight had host John Oliver discussing the Green New Deal.Well, not discussing, rather ignoring the Green New Deal while praising Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for creating a bill so insane that it created a constant, national conversation about Climate Change (forgetting that the conversation has been occurring for well over a decade)..He then pushed for a politically divisive policy so he can continue his constant and badly motivated attack on Republicans.



Oliver began his analysis of the Green New Deal by displaying how many times it is mentioned, and that it is booed at a Trump rally; ignoring that it’s famous because it’s ridiculous, and that it was booed for the same reason.He claims it’s polarizing because Republican’s won’t stop talking about what “they insist it contains”, dismissing the contents of the resolution.He points out the goals of “achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions”, but completely ignores the parts where…

Pro-Life Is The Progressive Position

Image
Unless you are a Congressional Democrat still trying to craft Trump’s silver bullet out of the Mueller Report, the big news over the weekend was Georgia’s Heartbeat Bill.This bill made performing an abortion after a heartbeat is detected (usually around 6 weeks) illegal in the state of Georgia.Advocates for abortion were predictably enraged, culminating in Alyssa Milano’s call for women to boycott sex with men until the law is changed.However, if the progressives who are dressing in Handmaid’s Tale outfits and protesting outside the Georgia State House thought critically about their ideology, they might conclude that the pro-life position, or at least some abortion restrictions, are a progressive position.



Progressivism as an ideology has many meanings depending on the cause of the one defining it, but most simply it is a philosophy that advocates that advancements in science, technology, economic development and social organization must be utilized to constantly reform society in or…

A Federal Failure, De Blasio Brings The Green New Deal To NYC

After a stunning and resounding defeat in the US Senate with a 0-57 vote against the Green New Deal (with 43 Democrats voting “present”), a variation of that economic monstrosity supposedly designed to reduce carbon emissions has found a home in New York City. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, trying to out-left Bernie Sanders, is following in the footsteps of freshman congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (and apparently Chinese communist dictator Mao Zedong), providing more evidence that she is the policy leader in the Democratic Party.
The Green New Deal was introduced by Ocasio-Cortez in the House, and by Ed Markey in the Senate, and was immediately endorsed by multiple 2020 Democratic Presidential candidates. Senators Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren are amongst those contenders wh…

Abortion Breeds Insanity

Image
In a viral video with over 2.5 million views, Democratic State Representative from Pennsylvania Brian Sims attempted to dox three teenage girls praying outside of a Philadelphia Planned Parenthood.Sims offered $100 to anyone who could give the name and address of the three teenage girls, presumably so pro-abortion advocates can continue to shame and harass them in their homes.In another video with 1 million views, he publicly shamed and harassed an elderly woman.Abortion, seemingly more than any other issue today, breeds a certain level of insanity for the left.Recent events alone show that no other issue will make its advocates forget science, morality, and simple logic like the ability to kill a baby.



The laws passed by New York State, the comments made by Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, and the failure for Senate Democrats to vote for a Born-Alive Bill are all well-documented examples of just how extreme mainstream Democrats have become on abortion.Where there used to be some dis…

How To Create A Westerosi Constitution

Image
Thousands of years of struggle, strife and warfare finally led to a group of great thinkers into a room where they created the greatest and freest society mankind has ever seen.Hundreds of years later, the American people are still trying to live up to the ideals set out in that constitutional system.The leaders of Westeros have the very same opportunity after “The Last War” is over.What kind of system will they set up?



A few assumptions must be made for this thought exercise.First, neither Cercei nor Dany sit on the Iron Throne.Either they kill each other or Dany wins and decides to abdicate/ is thrown off due to her Mad Queen tendencies.Second, the iron Throne itself is melted down, as another monarch is not the way forward.Tyrion has pushed Dany’s original idea of “breaking the wheel” long enough for him to realize that this isn’t the way.Third, it will take the religions of the continent, along with the intellectualism, to craft a meaningful constitution.



Who are the players, and…
