Back in February, then-gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis attempted to rock the boat by claiming that she supported Texas’ open carry movement.Her opponent Greg Abbott, an already-beloved-by-most Attorney General and popular favorite to win the election, already supported the measure, so perhaps at the time it seemed like a savvy move.

NY Times 2015: Keep blaming Israel, ignore Palestinian rejectionism

Posted by  ▪  January 1, 2015

It comes so naturally, the Times’ Editors don’t even need a formal New Year’s Resolution.

Today the New York Times, predictably, blamed Israel for Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ efforts to internationalize the Palestinians conflict with Israel. According to the Times, it is Israel’s fault that Abbas attempted to get the United Nations Security Council to impose an agreement on Israel and, failing that,…

International Criminal Court – Palestinians’ latest ploy to avoid hard compromises

Posted by  ▪  December 31, 2014

Mahmoud goes to court … Maybe.

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…

Attempting to rig the system.

I had an Op-Ed in The Boston Herald earlier this week, Will Elizabeth Warren sell ‘outside the bubble’?. The overall point was that Elizabeth Warren could win the Democratic Party nomination if she were willing to run a tough fight against Hillary, but that Warren didn’t seem to have what it takes…

Could Greece set off a Euro crisis in 2015?

The “Sick Man” of Europe is…Europe

The label “Sick Man of Europe” has been awarded to many a European nation and empire since it was first used to describe the decrepit Ottoman Empire in the mid-19th century. Today, it seems the entirety of Europe, save the United Kingdom and Switzerland, is worthy of the “sick man” title. The Eurozone…

UN Security Council rejects Palestinian Statehood

Posted by  ▪  December 30, 2014

Bid to force Israel to withdraw to indefensible lines fails to gain necessary votes.

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 to get sufficient votes…
