Congressman Lee Zeldin Rips Anti-Semite, Ilhan Omar, on House Floor (video)

The three stooges (Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar) in the House of Congress are the gift to cowering Republicans that keeps on giving.  Kudos to Congressman Lee Zeldin for daring to go where Kevin McCarthy among others are too spineless to go.

A power outage in Venezuela and Leftist denial

The collapse in Venezuela, rather than bringing enlightenment to America’s Leftists, instead sees them double-down on their delusions about socialism. This post is what Instapundit refers to as a “shot” and “chaser” scenario. Here’s the shot (hyperlinks omitted): In Venezuela, there’s a new front — the equivalent of an EMP [Read More]

North Korea negotiations reveal media’s ignorance

The pause in North Korea negotiations reveals that the media is locked in a dangerous imaginary world where negotiations play out like bad old-time movies.

Holocaust Remembrance Day Is Meaningless

Yesterday was Holocaust Remembrance Day. And much as I hate to say it, it’s meaningless. Almost to the point of farce. Because it has no meaning. Let’s look at few of today’s cartoons. Let’s look at Germany’s Angela Merkel first. She made the usual poignant speech about how it is [Read More]

THE TRUMP DOCTRINE AND THE GENERALS
