Chris not covering Andrew Cuomo; CPAC and the Odal Rune

3/3/2021
Chris Cuomo says he can't cover his brother Andrew's scandals, and immediately people pile on, as if it were inappropriate for him to have entertained people with interviews with his brother before. While I am no fan of either Chris or Andrew's views, the propaganda sold as news on CNN, or the Governor of NY's murderous policies or personal problems, I'm not buying it. Chris didn't do anything wrong. And neither did CPAC, no matter how many people frantically pointed to their stage design...

The Unequal Equality Act tramples the Bible

2/19/2021

Violence, impeachment and censorship are all wrong

1/13/2021
If any good will come out of the horrible riot at the Capitol last week, it will be unifying around the idea that violence is always wrong under all circumstances. Given the leftist narrative of the summer, however, there is ample reason to believe that they will persist in promoting the idea that violence is an appropriate way to express a grievance.

Why Doesn’t the JTA talk to Hassidim about Hassidus?

Stahl vs. the President, and the Woke Campus

10/27/2020

Criticism of Amy Coney Barrett’s Catholic Beliefs is Antisemitism

10/5/2020

Allen West on Israel, J Street, the Jewish Left and Biblical Values
