Disney Throws a Fit Over Florida But Keeps Mum on France, Tokyo, Even California

Originally published on March 31, 2022 https://www.cnsnews.com/commentary/moshe-hill/disney-throws-fit-over-florida-keeps-mum-france-tokyo-even-california   After acquiring ESPN, Marvel, Star Wars, and 20th Century Fox, the Walt Disney Company is well versed in acquiring large and popular enterprises to bolster its own portfolio. They may have gone too far, though, when they acquired the reins of the Woke Mob by publicly kowtowing to a minute amount of their employees. Now they have to own that Woke Mob, and needless to say, it does not have the same return on investment as "The Avengers." Disney has been walking down this path for a while. They’ve placed  content warnings  on some of their most popular children's movies, pushed  critical race theory  on employees, and even  modified  their own strict dress codes in the name of self-expression. Recently, they announced that they were  adding  a lesbian kiss into the animated film “Lightyear” because they bought into the l

Biden’s Blunders Highlight Trump’s Triumphs

For those who haven’t watched the news coverage, Biden’s failure during his European trip must be giving White House Communications a never-ending conniption.  First he said that he would respond to Vladimir Putin’s use of a weapon of mass destruction “in kind,” implying that the United States would go so far as to nuke Russia.  Then he spoke to American soldiers about w

How 'It Takes a Village' Turned Into 'There’s No Such Thing as Other People’s Children'

 Originally published March 18, 2022 https://www.cnsnews.com/commentary/moshe-hill/how-it-takes-village-turned-theres-no-such-thing-other-peoples-children For the greater part of the last century, the Left has been systematically conquering every institution in American society. This was not some grand design implemented by a central power, rather it was a specific mindset that began with a small group.  That mindset was “the personal is political, the political is personal.” This can be seen everywhere, from Hollywood to Big Tech, but it is incredibly prevalent in schools. Before the country knew what was happening, the notion that parents have no say in their children became the very bedrock of the public education system. Back in 1996, then-First Lady Hillary Clinton published the book “It Takes a Village,” borrowing from the old African proverb, “It takes a village to raise a child.” The message of the book was clear; every aspect of society is involved in the raising of children,

Dems Are Setting The Table To Bring Back COVID Restrictions

Originally published March 23, 2022 https://www.queensjewishlink.com/index.php/opinion/6287-dems-are-setting-the-table-to-bring-back-covid-restrictions   EMPTY If you thought a mere invasion of Ukraine by Russian forces would put the Democrats’ appetite for totalitarian control of the populace behind us, think again.  Restrictions are not gone; they were merely on hiatus until the news cycle tampered down.  Now that the death and destruction in Europe is hitting the one-month mark, the short-attention span of the media is refocusing on the best money-maker since Trump: COVID! Their joy began with a brand-new COVID variant entitled BA2. Apparently BA2 is a strain of Omicron, and the CDC says that it’s doubled each week for the past month, which makes it likely to be the next dominant strain in the US. What BA2 really is, is an excuse - an excuse that the powers that be will use to continue the COVID madness. President Biden extended the federal mandate to mask on planes and trains throu

Can New York Become A Battleground State?

 Originally published March 16, 2022 https://www.queensjewishlink.com/index.php/opinion/6245-can-new-york-become-a-battleground-state   EMPTY The midterm elections are eight months away, and candidates from all over the Empire State are gearing up for a long election season.  With the dismal job being done by President Joe Biden and the Democratic Majorities in the House and Senate, candidates running for federal seats are looking forward to their races with a certain level of optimism.  With the awful track record of Governor Kathy Hochul combined with the Supermajorities in the State Senate and Assembly, this may be the best chance that the GOP has had in decades to turn New York in their favor. The most notable statewide elections are for the Governorship and U.S. Senate.  Congressman Lee Zeldin, from Suffolk County, is currently the presumptive nominee for the GOP to run against Hochul.  His ticket is rounded out by Alison Esposito, Michael Henry, and Paul Rodriguez for Lieutenant

The Disturbing And Repetitive Cycle Of History

Originally published March 9, 2022 https://www.queensjewishlink.com/index.php/opinion/6201-the-disturbing-and-repetitive-cycle-of-history   EMPTY As Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine drags into its third week, imagine for a moment the terrible reality of the refugees who are being routed from their homes, and the homes of their ancestors, to avoid the devastation of war.  The mothers who place their children on buses, hoping to see them again, the fathers who take up arms to defend their country, and the families that are torn apart in all the chaos.  This is the reality of Putin’s aggression, but it draws a distinct parallel to many of the darkest hours in history. In 1948, when the State of Israel was only a dream and a declaration, the armies of the surrounding nations announced their intention to wipe out every Jewish man, woman, and child who lived within her borders.  The word went out to all the Arab villages to briefly evacuate to avoid becoming collateral damage, and not to

The Mandates Are Gone. Why Is New York State Fighting In Court To Keep Them?

Don’t Forget What Democrats Did To You

Originally published March 2, 2022 https://www.queensjewishlink.com/index.php/opinion/6149-don-t-forget-what-democrats-did-to-you    EMPTY Congratulations CDC and Kathy Hochul: You’re the Joey Tribbiani of public policy - always the last to understand what’s been going on the whole time.  This week, miraculously before President Joe Biden gave his State of the Union address, the CDC updated their masking requirements. Shortly after, New York Governor Kathy Hochul followed suit, and after nearly two years, children will be allowed to breathe again.  Should we thank them?  Should we support these decisions with gratitude, political donations, or votes?  Absolutely not. That is like thanking a bully for punching you in the stomach and not the face. That is like paying a mob boss after they broke your windows, hoping they won’t do it again. They deserve none of your gratitude.  This is because they did not change their policies because the science changed.  We’ve known for over two years t

New York GOP Nominates Lee Zeldin For Governor

Originally published March 2, 2022 https://www.queensjewishlink.com/index.php/opinion/6147-new-york-gop-nominates-lee-zeldin-for-governor     EMPTY With the excitement that only a Democrat with a 38% approval rating can bring, hundreds of Republicans from around New York State filed into the Garden City Hotel this week to officially nominate their chosen candidates for statewide office. Nassau County Joe Cairo welcomed the crowd with open arms, and with a clear voice and strong majority, the 62 counties that make up the state chose Congressman Lee Zeldin to take on Governor Kathy Hochul in 2022. Zeldin, who was there with his family, readily and enthusiastically accepted the endorsement of the GOP.  “We are going to win this race,” Zeldin said during his nomination speech, “because we  have  to win this race.  This isn’t a regular campaign. This is a rescue mission. A rescue mission to save our state.” Zeldin certainly has a wide lane to run on against the incumbent governor, who is la
