The Supreme Court’s ‘Jewish Seat’

But by no means do all Supreme Court experts agree that there never was a Jewish seat. Two fascinating examples are President Lyndon Johnson and Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Move Over, Sandy Koufax

While NFL players are running away from their country and refusing to stand during the national anthem, Israel’s professional athletes are doing the complete opposite! They are connecting to their nation and showing just how proud they are to be Jewish.

Trump should proclaim that unless Israel’s adversaries are ready to cease their incitement and condemn terrorism, the U.S. will no longer tolerate those who pay lip service to peace while encouraging and financing mass murder.

The Hypocritical Reaction To The President’s Stance On Iran

It will be recalled that JCPOA was adopted as an act of Congress – rather than, as would have been expected, a treaty.
