Ronald Reagan’s “A Time for Choosing” speech set forth the stark choice facing free societies in the fight against Communism:

After the attacks in France and throughout Europe on Jews, often motivated and perpetrated in the name of anti-Zionism, it’s no longer possible to sit on the sidelines.

It’s another time for choosing.

The Obama administration has admitted it dropped the ball when it came to not sending any senior administration official to the Paris Solidarity March.

The latest iteration is that no one apparently told the President that this was going to be a big deal.

Huh? This is the President who has made a...

Until now, it’s been purely present tense.

“I am not running for President.”

The tea leaf readers were undeterred, insisting that Warren had not ruled out running in the future.

BREAKING: A possible twist.

Someone asked Warren if she is “going to run” for President, and she said “No.”

Granted, the words “going to run” did...

TomoNews, which has created so many great animations, has one regarding Obama’s absence from the Paris Solidarity March.

I prefer the Chinese version with English subtitles (embedded below) but if you are too lazy to read the screen, you can find the full English version here.

I didn’t see this coming.

When Aleister posted the Reader Poll matching Mitt versus Jeb, I thought there would be a relatively close split.

We deliberately forced the readership into that choice to get a sense of how people who normally would not vote for either in a primary would split between the...

CNN reported at the time:

A suicide bomber blew himself up in a crowded Tel Aviv outdoor cafe Friday, killing at least three other people and injuring more than 40 others....

Via AP:

Legislation approving construction of the Keystone XL oil pipeline cleared an initial Senate hurdle Monday, a victory for newly empowered Republicans angling for a quick veto showdown with President Barack Obama.

The bipartisan 63-32 vote was 3 more than the 60 required, and well above the level the highly controversial measure...

It was bad enough that none of President Obama, Vice President Biden or Secretary of State Kerry attended Sunday’s Solidarity March in Paris, attended by dozens of world leaders.

It would have been the right thing for Obama to attend. There was enough security to protect obvious targets like the French...

Netanyahu at Grand Synagogue Paris

Almost since the beginning of this website in the fall of 2008 I have been sounding the alarm about, and documenting, the rise of anti-Semitism masquerading as anti-Zionism in Europe.

It’s been a toxic marriage of anti-Jewish Islamists and anti-Israeli leftists, resulting not just in fatalities, but in the inability to be...

Hillary is the presumptive Democratic Party presidential nominee. She has a large double-digit lead over other potential contenders.

The one thing Hillary doesn’t have, however, is grassroots enthusiasm. Her support as the presumptive nominee is a mile wide and an inch deep. She’s popular because of name recognition and...

The attack by radical Islamists at the Paris Hyper Cacher kosher supermarket left four hostages dead, plus one of the gunmen.

The Hyper Cacher supermarket attack appears to have been coordinated with the two men who killed 12 at Charlie Hebdo.

The specter of widespread anti-Semitism on the streets of Paris is nothing...
