Is #VaccineGate a Distraction from the Root Cause of America’s Measles Outbreak?

Posted by  ▪  February 3, 2015

This debate is far bigger than it appears.

Back in 2000, the Americas were cited as an example of how to effectively eradicate measles infections by prestigious medical journals; who would have thought that 15 years later, the vaccination for this disease is poised to become a topic in our upcoming presidential race? A rare moment of clarification occurred Monday…

Lindsey Graham not pleased with release of Gitmo prisoners

Posted by  ▪  February 2, 2015

“Strength and Security,” and harsh words for Obama? Must be primary season.

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) came out of nowhere last week with the announcement that he’s formed a presidential exploratory committee.

German Judge: Anti-Zionism is mask for anti-Semitism

Posted by  ▪  February 2, 2015

While at U.C. Davis, Students for Justice in Palestine chants “Allahu Akbar” at pro-Israel students.

This is a theme we have explored exhaustively here, in connection with the Boycott, Divest and Sanctions movement and anti-Semitic rallies and violence in Europe. There is a theoretical difference between being anti-Zionist and anti-Semitic. But that theoretical distinction has been completely lost on the street and campus thugs in Europe and…

“We need heroes”

On this day two years ago, Chris Kyle lost his life. Since then, his story has become an international sensation with the release of “American Sniper.” Patriots from both sides of the aisle have had to come forward and defend Kyle—and the military—from attacks on Kyle’s character and the role that…

WWBD?

Yesterday was Andrew Breitbart’s birthday. It’s amazing to me to see how that man’s legacy has lived on, even as the conservative movement has changed so much over the past few years. I listen to the stories and wild career paths of activists and bloggers who were inspired by him, and…

I am apologizing #LikeAGirl for Super Bowl Ads’ #WarOnMen

Posted by  ▪  February 2, 2015

No need to humiliate boys to appease the self esteem of girls.

While Professor Jacobson was surfing the Twitter stream during the Super Bowl, I was savoring the free market creativity of American advertisers. The runaway favorite commercials feature cute puppies and horses. One particular ad, however, brought out an entirely different animal in me: The Mama Grizzly. I have a serious recommendation to T-Mobile…

“Likud is the only choice”

There’s something bizarre about seeing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promoting himself in a lighthearted campaign ad; but the latest spot from the Likud party brings a nice slice of humanity into an otherwise-bitterly contested election, and offers up a laugh or two in the process. Via the Israel National News: “Look, it’s…
