Hillary Clinton — The Human Spittoon

Writer’s note: I wrote the following article last year, but it now appears that Hillary’s mental condition and pathological desperation have devolved. Just this week, she accused the leftist presidential candidate, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI)––a combat veteran and Major in the Hawaii Army National Guard––of being a “Russian asset” groomed to ensure President Trump’s reelection. […]

The Groveling Jewish Lefties

Not long ago, I received a lengthy e-mail – “Why We Must Renew Our Commitment to the Civil Rights Movement” – from a woman named Melanie Roth Gorelick, who identified herself as Senior Vice President of the Jewish Council for Public Affairs (JCPA). Honestly, I thought it was one of the preposterous spoofs of that satirical publication, The […]

Autism –– Still looking for answers in all the wrong places

Updated from an April 2014 article on this issue. According to 2018 statistics from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), about 1 in 59 children has been identified with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), up from the one in 68 in 2016. PLUS ÇA CHANGE… As always, the powers-that-be at the CDC trot out the age-old […]

Baby Killers

Trump Administration mandated that taxpayer-funded family planning clinics immediately stop referring women for abortions, maintain separate finances from facilities that provide abortions, and that both kinds of facilities not be under the same roof. “Thou shalt not kill.” Exodus 20:13 ”…I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that […]

The Sludge Sisters

Throughout the ages, Jews have been the targets of genocidal forces both large and small, educated and ignorant, liberal and conservative, pagan and religious. Other small sects and religions have never inspired the particular psychotic animus that Jews have because they never threatened the larger populace as Jews have with blazing green-eyed jealousy–the most powerful […]

America and the Family Business Rule — Can We Save ‘The American Dream’?

There is an old saying in family businesses, “The first generation starts a business. The second generation runs it. The third generation ruins it.” Metaphorically, our American family business is in the third generation. Our Founding Fathers rejected monarchy, oligarchy, aristocracy, theocracy, and formed the United States of America as a Constitutional Republic – the […]

Antisemitism on Parade — Everything Old is New Again

”…the Democrats have become an anti-Israel party. They’ve become an anti-Jewish party.” —President Donald J. Trump ”…the chickens of the Democratic Party are coming home to roost…maybe then they will also realize that anti-Semitism, like most cancers, is fatal unless it’s removed.” —Michael Goodwin, NY Post Most people thought antisemitism had been relegated to the trash bin […]

Suicidal Jews

When individuals kill themselves, we look for answers in their DNA, their environments, their personal reactions to feelings of impotent rage, rejection, disappointment, heartbreak. But how to explain group suicide? Wikipedia lists numerous cases, starting in 206 B.C., and these relatively recent cases: In 1943, in the final phase of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, many […]

Still the Smartest Guy in the Room

Well, whaddaya know? In the midterm elections of November 6, 2018, the American people rewarded the president––for only the third time in almost a hundred years––with a net gain of three and possibly four Senate seats, lost half the House seats that his predecessor lost, and left the radical leftwing Democrats not rejoicing at their […]

P.T. Barnum Had Nothing on the Democrats’ Freak Show

The Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey Circus that I attended in my youth showcased acts like the freak show in which people with all sorts of bizarre physical features would attract millions of morbidly curious wide-eyed visitors. But even Tom Thumb and the Siamese twins, the bearded lady and the dog-faced boy, and the head of Medusa […]
