You’ve probably already heard about Hillary Clinton’s “super volunteers” who are sending warning letters to reporters about using language they deem to be “coded sexism.”  This “HRC Super Volunteers” group apparently began back in 2007 as a Facebook group devoted to ending sexist reporting on Clinton.  Apparently, they are still active…

Earlier today, MSNBC published a story suggesting Senator Cruz supports legalization of undocumented individuals currently in the United States. Derived from the fact that Senator Cruz hasn’t specifically stated he does not support legalization of undocumented individuals, the inference is that Cruz must therefore support legalization of undocumented individuals. It’s a nice…

The U.S. military is worried about ISIS—and not because of their violent offensive tactics. ISIS is good at propaganda. Really good. Their use of social media to recruit and promote themselves is unlike anything we’ve seen from an extremist group, and what’s worse—it’s working. Military officials believe that ISIS may even…

The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, conceived at the anti-Semitic 2001 Durban NGO Conference and rolled out with a 2005 boycott call from “Palestinian Civil Society,” is a weapon to isolate, demonize and dehumanize Israel and Israeli Jews.
