When talking about the obsessive-compulsive haters of the anti-Israel Boycott, Divest and Sanctions movement, it’s easy to focus on opposing what they do.

In fact, this weekend at the American Historical Association, some BDS activist-professors are trying to get business meeting rules waived so they can introduce a biased and inaccurate...

Despite widespread media and social media claims that the North Koreans were not behind the Sony hack, the U.S. government stands by the assertion that North Korea is the culprit.

Obama signed an executive Order today imposing sanctions, as The Washington Post reports:

Bumper Sticker - Roswell NM - Exist

We have been running bumper stickers since June 24, 2010, when I saw the Bumper Sticker of Change while on a walk in my then home State of Rhode Island and Provideence Plantations:

Bumper Sticker - Work Harder Obama Needs The Money

Since then, we have run over 500 posts with bumper stickers, almost all reader submitted. Scroll through our Bumper Sticker tag.

In 2012 we had a bumper sticker post almost every day due to the presidential election. Things have slowed down, but we still have a bumper sticker post just about every week. Keep ’em coming.

Here are my picks for the Best 2014 Bumper Stickers:

As previously mentioned, around mid-year I started seeking to broaden the audience by writing Op-Eds at major publications.

Each time I do so, I post an excerpt at Legal Insurrection, so you don’t miss it.

For those of you who have not been following along and taking notes, here is the 2014 list:

The problem with the “peace negotiations” that failed numerous times over the years is that the Palestinians cling to the hope that international organizations — primarily the United Nations and its branches — will force Israel into concessions that harm Israel’s security, and will pave the way not for a lasting...

The United Nations Security Council just voted against a controversial Palestinian Authority proposal, introduced by Jordan, requiring Israel to pull back to the 1967 lines (the 1949 Armistice line), including designating all of East Jerusalem (which includes the ancient Jewish Quarter of the Old City).

The vote failed...

Ignore the polls showing Hillary up by 50%+ over potential Democratic rivals.

Elizabeth Warren “is not” running. Everyone knows (or assumes) Hillary is.

The second Warren declares she’s seeking the nomination, if she declares, the polls will narrow.

The second Warren goes after Hillary as the crony-capitalist, contrived-candidate that she is, the polls...
