President Trump is the “dayenu” president

No matter how imperfect Trump is, looking at his record of accomplishments, as to each one I say the Passover word “dayenu” — it would have been enough. During the Passover dinner, one of the songs Jewish families sing is Dayenu. It is in the nature of a “count your [Read More]

Bookworm Beat 12/6/18 — the super quick edition

This Bookworm Beat quickly looks at silly queers, the fake #MeToo movement, the party of non-science, bad Islam, dead England, the Iran Deal, and more. Honestly, I don’t know where the day went. Here it is, after 8 in the evening, and although I’ve been busy all day, I can’t [Read More]

Bookworm Beat 9/7/2018 — the “won’t that boring Obama ever shut up” edition

This Bookworm Beat has as its starting points Obama’s self-aggrandizing, offensive speech. Then it gets to the fun and interesting stuff for you to enjoy.

Nicholas Kristoff wrong about risky president
Donald Trump

Dear Nicholas Kristoff: Trump isn’t the scary guy. Obama gambled with America.

Nicholas Kristoff calls Trump scary and reckless. Somehow he missed eight years of Obama’s incredibly scary and reckless behavior. The only time I ever take Nicholas Kristoff seriously is when he writes about the horrors of obstretric fistula. It’s a dreadful affliction and there are charities that are trying to [Read More]

Bookworm Beat 2/20/17 — fighting the self-anointed fourth branch of government

The new phrase is “fourth branch of government,” referring to the Progressive bureaucracy fighting exile. It’s time to fight back.
