War & Peace

I used to think that the only way the various factions in the world would ever unite is if earth were being attacked by alien life forms from outer space.  No longer do I believe that even a Martian army could do the trick.  I’m not even convinced that such an invasion would unite Americans,…

Where in the World Is Jihad Pilot Adnan Shukrijumah?

Black caliphate flags flap in the open air. Islamic head-choppers wreak bloody havoc around the world. Nearly a dozen commercial airliners disappear in Libya. And America’s immigration and entrance systems remain in shambles. Now is a good time to ask a question I first posed 10 summers ago: Where is Adnan Shukrijumah? A decade later,…

Is There Anything Debbie Wasserman Schultz Wouldn’t Say?

Back in January of 2012, when George Stephanopoulos of ABC News asked GOP presidential candidates their thoughts on states banning women from using contraception, the question was met with total confusion. No one on stage at the Republican primary debate seemed to know what Stephanopoulos was talking about. Mitt Romney answered that he had never…

Bulletin: A NYT Columnist Hears Chants for Blood — from (Gasp!) Conservatives

The other day, New York Times columnist Tom Friedman wrote that, “ISIS is awful but is not a threat to America’s homeland.” Let’s hope he’s right, but who thought Al Qaeda was a threat to America’s homeland – until it was? The fact is that hundreds of Americans and British young men have signed on…

“A Few Odds & Ends” and “Ferguson, Foley & Folly”

Some people continue to assert that Richard Nixon was a very good president. Even if you overlook Watergate, which I am willing to do because I regarded it as an act of political stupidity, not really a threat to America, I don’t see that he scored any great accomplishments. Some point out that he opened…

Crying Wolf, Crying Racism

"It's time to take back America," the speaker shouted at a Labor Day rally. This particular screamer was not a Tea Partier or a rabid Republican, but the Vice President of the United States. Just who does Joe Biden want to take the country back from? His party controls the White House, the Senate, and…

Deport the Tsarnaev Sisters

The Sisters Tsarnaev have been nothing but trouble. Double, bubbling trouble. While their Boston Marathon bomber brother Dzhokhar awaits trial this month for the bloody 2012 attacks that killed three and injured hundreds, his elder Chechen immigrant siblings Ailina and Bella remain on the loose in the U.S. after their own frequent run-ins with the…

Winooski, Vermont and the Dismantling of America’s Values

As a talk show host, I have no choice but to keep up with what’s happening in America and the world. I am therefore submerged in depressing and often angering fare. It is hard to read about and discuss the progressives who dominate American media and academia who morally equate Israel and Hamas; who describe…
