The Unbridled Attacks on Biden

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

If you are feeling like you have whiplash, you should. It’s been fascinating to watch how quickly certain elements of the Democrat party, including their in-house press organs called the New York Times, Washington Post, Politico etc., turned on the guy. And there are some major concerns and duplicity central to their reaction. President Biden […]

The Trump Travesty

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

I feel violated by what happened in New York City. For analysis of this “show trial” I relied principally on three legal experts: Jonathan Turley, Andy McCarthy, and Alan Dershowitz. Two of these men are Democrats. All three think the same way as I do about Donald Trump. All three spent time in the courtroom and were appalled by what took place. None of the three has ever seen a judge behave and make decisions like the evil Juan Merchan. They have never seen a judge maneuver a case that should have never been brought by the equally evil Alvin Bragg.

Observations of Europe

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

We Americans travel to Europe more than any other place on earth outside the United States. We do it because it is still the closest to us culturally, politically, and militarily. We feel more comfortable jetting off to London or Florence than we do in other parts of the world. The Beautiful Wife and I […]

The Second Great American Lie

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

There are many lies that Americans are told either by our government or by the compliant press that wants to manipulate us. There are two in our modern society that override all others. The first we have reviewed many times – that a college education is essential for your success in modern society. The second […]

Stalinization of America

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

I decided to read a book on Stalin. He was possibly the evilest person in history. He had the good fortune of being in power concurrently with another more notoriously evil person – Hitler. Thus, his starving and murdering tens of millions of people evaded the spotlight it deserved. I contacted my resident Russia expert, […]

Racing to Control Trump

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

Every administration makes plans nearing the end of their term. It can either be if they are seeking reelection and want to make sure they have all their bases covered if they don’t win, or they are nearing the end of an eight-year term and wish to complete some projects. I myself was part of […]

America’s Grifters

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

The definition of a grifter is a con artist; someone who pulls confidence games; a swindler, scammer, huckster, hustler, and/or charlatan. It is also said if there’s one type of person you don’t want to trust, it’s a grifter: someone who cheats others out of money. Grifters are also known as chiselers, defrauders, gougers, scammers, […]

Is a Residential Real Estate Revolution Coming?

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

The National Association of Realtors (NAR) settled a series of lawsuits that are being trumpeted as “a radical change” in commissions paid to real estate agents for the purchase and/or sale of a home. There is so much misinformation being spread on this issue it boggles the mind. Let’s clear up some things. First, the […]

Get Off My Highway

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

Those who know me, and regular readers should after all these years, know that I have an indelible spirit when it comes to my love and belief in America. While people from both sides of the political spectrum bemoan the downfall of our way of life or “our Democracy,” I laugh and shrug it off. I tell them “This is America, the greatest country ever invented. We will adjust and we will endure.” Recently I even flinched. It is easy to question where we are heading with many of our society’s developments. The significant disregard for property rights is evidenced by the explosion of brazen theft attacks on our retailers. Likewise, the explosion of squatters believing they can occupy someone’s home without their consent. The worst part of this is the near-total emasculation of our policing authority with the demonstrative endorsement of many elected officials supposedly in the position to stop such acts.

The Illegals Are Truly a Benefit

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

Of course, they are not really “illegals” as they should properly be referred to as “undocumented immigrants,” “unauthorized immigrants,” “non-citizens,” “without status,” and/or “unlawfully present.” As the Left stumbles over the correct characterization of people who have entered this country with no compliance to our national laws and remain here despite their continuing non-compliance, the […]

The Ultimate Destruction of Private Property

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

Many changes have occurred in American society over the past few decades, largely due to a surge of Socialism supporters. Most of them call themselves “Progressives.” The honest ones announce they are members of the Democrat Socialists of America. One of the primary tenets of Socialism is aimed to substitute private property for social ownership […]

Everybody is Innocent

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

You may have heard the Governor of California (you know the one who wants to be President of the United States) got into a little quarrel with a cashier at a Target store. Newsom spotted someone leaving the store without paying for an item. By his own account he asked the clerk why no one […]

Legacy Media Misses Another Culture Moment

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

This one was easy for them to grab as it was on Bill Maher’s February 16th show (Real Time). Maybe the Legacy Media is no longer glued to whatever Mr. Maher says. Recently he has made comments which might induce graduates of “prestigious” journalism schools to light their hair on fire. This vignette was of […]

Killing A Mosquito With A Bazooka [Corporate Transparency Act]

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

You have probably seen a cop show where there is a company owned by an entity that is owned by another entity to hide the real owners. A perfect example of someone using what can be referred to as “shell companies” is Hunter Biden having more than 20 of them. Congress wants to stop these […]

Too Many Lawyers Leading to Too Much Mischief

Estimated Reading Time: 5 minutes

The world has been directing negative comments against lawyers for at least five hundred years. Law schools push out too many people with degrees that go on to lay waste to our economy. Ambulance chasers have given way to the mass marketers arranging financial mayhem. Our government hires throngs of attorneys to attack our businesses […]

Biden’s Foreign Policy

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

While conceiving this column I came upon an observation about the difference between the Biden and Trump presidencies. Trump’s administration was chaos, but our lives were normal. Biden’s administration is normal, but everything else is in chaos. When speaking about President Biden, former Defense Secretary Robert Gates stated, “I think he has been wrong on […]

How The Left Thinks

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

This column addresses the issue of Claudine Gay, the now-former president of Harvard, but is not really about her. This is about how we who are not on the Left are addressed by those on the Left. And why they are constantly attacking, and their lack of tolerance as opposed to discussing. Many of you […]

The New Fear Weather

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

Life-threatening’ storm to slam Southern California beginning Sunday, last for days Monster storm bears down on California: The danger zones, the forecast, the warnings Sunday’s ‘Pineapple Express’ expected to wallop Southern California Forecasters say a second storm fueled by an atmospheric river will hit California next week, roughly doubling the amount of rain falling Thursday […]

How We Got A Lot Richer

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

Editors’ Note: We agree with much of the foregoing analysis. We would add that transfer payments for COVID relief, or any other purpose,  financed with debt, is simply wealth borrowed from future generations for the benefit of the present generation. We made ourselves richer and our grandkids poorer. Is that a moral way to get […]

Joe Biden is a Terrible Father and a Lousy Liar

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

As we lurch into the 2024 election year, it is imperative we confront the naked truth about the potential contestants for the grand prize of President of the greatest country ever. Though it is often stated that family is off limits in political discussion, I believe that ship has sailed for President Biden – he […]

No Interest in Democracy

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

The Left is constantly warning us about the dangers of losing our democracy. They were convinced The Orange Man (Donald Trump) was going to steal our democracy for four years and if elected again will finally complete his goal of becoming a strongman autocrat. One major publication changed its tagline to say that “Democracy Dies in Darkness” while keeping people in the dark. As usual, this is just a head fake as they have little interest in the process of democracy in our country.

Hamas Should Surrender

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

Even prior to when Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) began fighting Hamas after their October 7th deadly slaughter of Israeli citizens, some who declined to help Israel focus on just one aspect of the hostilities.  France’s President Emmanuel Macron, who falsely believes his shrinking country still has 21st-century relevance, along with arguably the world’s most anti-Semitic organization […]

Two Things That Worry Me to Start 2024

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

There are more like how well my baseball team will do this coming season, but we need to focus on a couple of big issues that affect us all and our entire country. The first issue is our insane national budget deficit. One would think that since the effects of the pandemic receded more than a […]

A Happy Column

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

A friend and regular reader of my column came to me at our Hanukkah party and suggested that I should write more about positive things. Unbeknownst to him, I had already planned my next two columns regarding the Christmas season with a decidedly positive bent. In response to his request, this column attempts just that. […]

Family Estrangement

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

Editors Note:  The holidays have come and gone and now we face the New Year. Although these sentiments frequently surface during periods of holiday family interaction, the problem can last well after the holidays, even spanning years. Healing such alienation within families seems like a worthy goal to us for starting the new year. Families […]

Please No More Happy Holidays

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

I was at one of my local casual restaurants for lunch on a Saturday. I asked my waiter, who I know, for my check and said to him jokingly that if the restaurant wants to, they could cover me for the day. He said that would be tomorrow, Sunday. I suggested that was his Sabbath […]

Are you surprised by the level of anti-Semitism that occurred after October 7th?

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

Because of my background as a weekly journalist, a committed Jew, and a former member of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Council, I have been asked many times recently “Are you surprised by the level of anti-Semitism that occurred after October 7th”? My answer is NO. My question is why anyone is surprised by the large […]

White Liberals

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

I have recently concluded that white liberals are the most dangerous people in our society. I decided to expand on the concept and explain why these sanctimonious people are so harmful. Across America, people are regularly elected who make clear they want to radically change the landscape of American politics, particularly the justice system. Some […]

Our Dysfunctional Press

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

There was a blatant episode recently that exemplifies how deteriorated our press has become. The immediate disclosure to the world that the Hamas propaganda machine blamed Israelis for a hospital bombing in Gaza – in reality, the hospital parking lot — and the killing of 500 people – which was actually 50. These irresponsible reports […]

Too Many Laws

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

There are many joys of being a Californian. The price of housing, the price of gas, and the price of electricity are just a few. One that is not discussed is how our elected leaders are constantly changing the laws under which we are governed.  This is one of the worst aspects of our “independent […]

Yes, Cease Fire. Just Wrong War

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

It did not take long for Israel’s enemies to call for a cease-fire in their current fight against Hamas and the terrorists in Gaza. To state it accurately, there were parties calling for a cease-fire prior to Israel taking any military action. A cease-fire does need to occur, but the parties are focused on the […]

Campus Anti-Semitism Can’t be Stopped Without Dismantling the DEI Complex

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

The October 7th murderous terrorist attacks in Israel led to protests erupting on many college campuses. These protests were both verbal and somewhat physical on Israel and the Jewish people while Israel had yet to engage militarily. These protests were justifiably branded by many as anti-Semitic. There have been many calls for changes at numerous […]

Whose Children Are They?

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

When I was growing up there was no question who was in charge of me. It was my parents. I was blessed with going to one of the finest public school systems at the time — Shaker Heights, Ohio. It was clear the schools were responsible for educating me to read, write, learn mathematics and science, and teach me about history, particularly American history. The responsibility ended there. Have things ever changed?

I saw a transition when my own children attended school. The Beautiful Wife and I chose to send them to a Jewish school system. We knew of the degradation of the public school systems (in the ‘90s) and wanted our children to have our Jewish values reinforced during the long school days they experienced. When they were in elementary school the only indoctrination they were subject to was spelling correctly and multiplication tables.

Has Hamas’ Attack Finally Aroused Parents About Universities?

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

Many of us have tried somewhat in vain to alert parents about the fecklessness of supporting certain colleges and/or sending their children to them. Currently, there are 3,982 colleges and universities in the United States. Some are not only dangerous for the mind of your child or grandchild, but their body as well. The reaction […]

Guilty Until Proven Innocent

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

Frequently it appears the hallmark statement of our legal system has been turned on its head. It is not just that charges are made against people from which the public draws a conclusion. The person’s career is cut short before the accused has a chance to offer a proper defense, and their income is terminated. […]

A Conspiracy Theory

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

When you hear someone deep diving into a conspiracy theory, do you roll your eyes and then politely thank the person for sharing their paranoid thoughts with you? I do. The theory usually involves some form of complicated conjecture which is one speculation after another. Anyone who reads my columns or talks to me knows […]

It Is Time for Hysteria

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

There is a battle brewing in Washington over our annual national budget which is supposed to be in place for the new fiscal year, beginning October 1st. The entire discussion is about whether the House Republicans will have the budget’s twelve elements ready by the deadline. The alternative is to once again invoke those favorite […]

Is America A Bad Place To Work?

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

Recently I encountered a study by an organization called Oxfam Research. That study: Where Hard Work Doesn’t Pay Off. As defined in Wikipedia, Oxfam was founded in 1942 as a confederation of 21 independent charitable organizations, centered in Oxford England focusing on alleviating global poverty and led by Oxfam International. There is an American affiliate. I […]

Google is Where Democracy is Dying?

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

Has it been more than five minutes since you heard someone on the left spouting about how our democracy is in danger? The Washington Post adopted the slogan “Democracy Dies in Darkness,” while simultaneously keeping their readers in the dark about a multitude of critical issues. Despite all the hysteria, the Left ignores the single […]

Debilitating Hatred

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

There are certain emotions that will either eat you alive or cause a boomerang effect on you from the actions you take. There has been a hatred manifested throughout this country that is eating at our core and will cause repercussions that may severely affect all of us for a long, long time. A local […]

Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

While packing for our recent trip to London, I went to our unread bookshelf – the place where we track acquired but not yet read books. I spotted The Intimidation Game written by Kimberly Strassel. Since we will be seeing Ms. Strassel in September as she releases a new book, I thought it a suitable […]

I Believe President Biden

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

I have been taken aback by the chorus of my fellow Republicans who have questioned the word of President Joe Biden regarding his involvement in his son’s business dealings. Mr. Biden was obviously busy with other matters, as you can only expect from a man of his stature. So why would we question his involvement? […]

Walter Williams Said It First

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

Walter Williams sadly left us in December 2020.  Like his very close friend, Thomas Sowell, he was an economist who would have had a Nobel Prize were it not for the prejudice against black conservatives.  Both were/are brilliant teachers who educated us through their writing.  Walter Williams authored twelve books, all worthy of your time.  […]

We Are Becoming Venezuela

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

Those who regularly read my column know that The Beautiful Wife and I are experienced, world travelers. We have been to 80 countries together and love to travel to all corners of the world. One of the countries I would really like to go to is Venezuela. At one point not too long ago, Venezuela […]

The Scam of Book Sales

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

The Left has gone after members of the U.S. Supreme Court on drummed-up ethics charges. Whether the Justices have violated any ethics rules (which they have all denied in specificity as to their filings and their actions) is in the eye of the beholder. What we want to explore is how people in public office […]

Los Angeles Dodger Foundation Lets DEI Rule the Day

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

We have been searching for a place to focus our charitable efforts. For more than 30 years, most of our giving went to our synagogue. Sadly, we were compelled to leave after two left-wing Rabbis were more interested in being community organizers than teaching the Torah. We have been giving to Prager U, StandWithUs, The […]

Simple Solution in Government Intrusion Case

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

Ronald Reagan once said, “they say the world has become too complex for simple answers. They are wrong.” We have exactly that — a simple solution to the government’s intrusion into communication with social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, Google, Instagram etc. As I am sure you are aware there was an earthquake on July […]

Is Mexico Our Friend?

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

The United States has enjoyed unique stature among the nations of the world. For over a century, we have been separated from the rest of the world by two oceans with two major friendly countries on our northern and southern borders. We have enjoyed particularly cooperative relations with both during this time. Times are changing […]

Reparations

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

Anyone who has previously read my columns will quickly conclude that I believe reparations (as being currently discussed) are a tragically stupid idea. You have probably read a multitude of opinions telling you why that is so. You are about to get a significantly different take on the issue. The first aspect comes from my […]

To Work or Not to Work, That is The Question

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

A large portion of the national debt limit bill negotiations involved reestablishing work requirements to receive payments from the various government handout programs. President Biden objected to what was in the House bill and a compromise was struck. Why are we discussing this now? There is definitely a difference of opinion even though a bipartisan […]
