The Limits of Government Power

Modern government is fixated on depth of control over people. It plots to control every aspect of their lives with the goal of creating a completely harmonious whole. Technology has fed the illusion that such control has become more feasible than ever allowing for the rise of truly scientific government. This illusion is destroying the nation-states of modern civilization by overburdening them with massive governments flailing for control and destroying their economies in order to achieve that control.

Party of Trolls: How Race Dominates U.S. Politics

Poverty is complicated. So are jobs and wars. Race however is simple. There are bad people and there are good people. The oppressed and the oppressors. And that paradigm, that one talking point that they store up and unleash at every occasion is the sum total of their contribution to every debate under the sun.

The Palestine Hoax

Palestine is a Potemkin village, as desolate as it was when Mark Twain visited it. Its culture is an empty building; plenty of bodies, but no soul. Palestine has no past and no future.

Divest from Palestine

The BDS hate movement demands a boycott of Israel. It’s time instead for us to divest from Palestine. Divestment isn’t hard.

Ready for Hillary

Why vote for Hillary? Because Hillary wants you to vote for her.

What Anti-Semitism in Europe and the Campus Have in Common

The campus is the canary in the coal mine. It’s where American Jews are beginning to experience a European style of anti-Semitism where the complicity of the authorities in the harassment perpetrated by a growing Muslim population and its left-wing allies leaves Jewish students uniquely vulnerable.

Everything is Fake Now: The Virtual Reality of Politics

When all the bubbles of rhetoric pop, there are still the hard unpleasant realities to deal with.

Looking for Love in the Muslim World

Getting involved in the politics of any other country is bound to make enemies.

The Extremist Moderates and the Moderate Extremists

Like a band that only knows one song, politicians only know one response to Islamic terrorism. They wall off that vast majority of Muslims...

Fighting Caliphate with Chaos

The American experiment in trying to export our own form of government to Muslims didn’t work. The Middle East still has monarchies and only one democracy, Israel, with free and open elections.

The Scarecrow of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue

Obama and Biden are both symbols of the Post-American America. Biden represents the outgoing American administration and Obama represents the incoming Post-American administration. It is vital to make the American administration look weak, foolish and useless so as to affirm the right of the Post-American administration to seize power from it.

Israel’s War of Words

Bashing Haredim on the dole is easy; but doing the same thing to the Muslims, who don't report income or pay taxes, is dangerous because it comes too close to a real national problem. Going on about your children being shot at because of the settlers is safe, but talking about the destructive political interests that ceded portions of the West Bank and Gaza to Islamic terrorists is a dangerous topic.

Five Lessons from Egypt and the Arab Spring

The messages from the region are as worthless as the cheerful prognostications about waves of reform from Western media men who know little of the Middle East beyond its waiters and airports.

Shooting the Syrian Elephant

The Republican Party is what it is because it lacks that sense of moral conviction. It takes positions for convenience.

The War for Jerusalem

Under Muslim occupation, while Muslim snipers cold-bloodedly murdered Jerusalem's Jewish residents, Jews living under fire couldn't so much as put in an outhouse without being reported to the UN for illegal construction.

Why The Newsroom is Good News for Republicans

The Newsroom is Aaron Sorkin's sad attempt to win an argument by rewriting history and coming up with all the comebacks that his side couldn't think of two years ago. It's the sad and pathetic spectacle of an ideology creating its own fantasy version of its reality in which it won the argument.

The Crash of Socialism 2.0

Instead of passing big laws, there will be lots of small laws. The old totalitarians would have outlawed suicide. The new totalitarians outlaw Tylenol.

Better Than They Are

After Muslims killed thousands of Americans we did everything we could to learn about their religion, to celebrate it and soothe their ruffled feathers.

The Emperor’s Magic New Debate

The outcome of the debate between Obama and Romney had less to do with any extraordinary qualities possessed by Mitt Romney than with the purely ordinary qualities of Barack Obama. No matter how much Team Obama tried to warn the media faithful against any enthusiasm, the expectations were high and remained high until the Chicago Messiah began to speak. And then there was nothing.

The Light of Chanukah

The Jewish Press hopes that your Hanukah was joyful and illuminating.

The Urban Tyranny

Truly old cities become fossilized, but they still always seem on the verge of being tipped over.

The Inevitable Hillary

At the Benghazi hearings, Hillary famously demanded to know what difference it made. The same can be said of her life.

George Zimmerman Cures Cancer

"Cancer is a white man's disease," said MSNBC political commentator Al Sharpton.

Madmen and Crowds

Crowd culture expects everyone to follow the leader, to join the meme, to move with the flow, but that is something that crazy people cannot do.

Looking Back on the Life of Barack Obama
