The release of the video is part of the Taliban victory lap:

Joni Ernst and Chris McDaniel had no chance of winning, until she won outright and he won but is in a runoff.

Both came out of nowhere because voters rallied around a Tea Party backed candidate. In the case of Mississippi, the battle was against a legacy entitled incumbent.

The lesson is...

And so it continues.

All eyes have been focused on the increasingly bizarre facts of the exchange of 5 top Taliban Gitmo detainees for Bowe Bergdahl, someone who may very well be a deserter if reports by soldiers who served with him are accurate.

Yet an even bigger event took place just yesterday,...

What will it take to get Elizabeth Warren to run for President?

Hillary deciding not to run — Warren jumps in to a certainty, in my opinion.

Hillary running — it will take a cause greater than herself to get Warren to run. A cause of historic proportions. A saving of the planet...

Gratz College - For Academic Freedom and Against BDS

I had the pleasure of speaking at Gratz College outside Philadelphia last week.

The topic was, once again, the academic boycott of Israel, followed by a Q&A session.

For those of you near Los Angeles, I’ll be speaking at the invitation of Children of Jewish Holocaust Survivors – Los Angeles, co-sponsored by the ...

If Eric Holder wants to force James Risen to reveal a confidential source or go to jail, it looks like Holder could get his way after the Supreme Court today declined to take an appeal from NY Times reporter James Risen.

WaPo elaborates on the background of the case:

Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was released yesterday in exchange for 5 top Taliban terrorists held at Gitmo.

On the one hand, an American soldier was brought home. As with the Israelis, it sends a signal that we don’t leave anyone behind, even when the trade is lopsided and frees those who may...

On a very, very, very rare trip by me.

I had not been in D.C. since college, until recently.

This bumper sticker confirmed that my decision to stay away for over 30 years was correct.

White privilege is the political Swiss Army Knife of the progressive movement.

There is literally nothing that happens in the country for which white privilege does not serve as a tool. If you are white, you have white privilege. If you are not, you suffer from lack of white privilege. The insane White...
