Palestinian child pushed towards soldier video screen shot

I have documented how some Palestinians, such as Bassem Tamimi, have created an industry of exploiting children for the cameras in a very dangerous way.

They have the children confront soldiers with the cameras rolling, hoping for a reaction and viral video or image. The video and images are crucial in the...

Hillary Clinton Acceptance Speech

After a rocky first day, the Democratic Convention showed signs of the benefits of Hollywood backing.

Hillary’s acceptance night was slickly produced, and obviously geared towards “humanizing” Hillary.

If humanizing Hillary was the goal, her acceptance speech was just the opposite. We saw fighting, angry Hillary tonight.

That has to have been a strategic decision, with Katy...

Israeli Flag burning DNC

The burning of an Israeli flag outside the Democratic National Convention has received a fair amount of press.

There’s a bigger point here, one I have made many, many times before.

The Leftist-Islamist coalition which hates and wants to destroy Israel also hates and wants to destroy the United States.

Hillary Clinton Bernie Sanders Dem Debate 4-14-2016

The Wikileaks release of hacked Democratic National Committee emails threatens to set the Democratic National Convention on fire this week.

Whether the leaks prove the election was fixed is one thing; that it is perceived that way is beyond doubt. Already Debbie Wasserman Schultz has resigned as DNC Chair.

Not enough.

Over 1500 university Deans were dismissed, travel for faculty restricted, and faculty abroad ordered home.

On Saturday, July 23, 2016, President Erdogan expanded the purge, as we reported earlier.

There were many predictions of violent protests at the Republican National Convention, in light of a series of violent anti-Trump protests around the country.

In Chicago, you will recall, protests organized by MoveOn.org and others caused Trump to cancel his appearance at a major university arena.

Immediately after the terrorist attack by Mohamed Bouhlel in Nice, France, we were told he was a lone wolf, a guy “recently radicalized,” suffering from depression, with no connection to Islamists or ISIS, a guy who just went crazy and drove his truck through a crowd.
