We covered it, Obligatory “Bernie Sanders on honeymoon drunk, half-naked and singing in Soviet Union 1988” video:

There is a growing recognition that the so-called Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel is just a new form of the oldest hate, antisemitism.

The Wisconsin “John Doe” investigations into Scott Walker will likely fade from memories, particularly now that Walker is out of office.

That should not be the case. The John Doe investigations were some of the worst political abuses of prosecutorial powers ever to take place, and need to be remembered.

Bringing the federal judiciary back to the center has been one of the great successes of Trump’s first two years in office.

As mentioned many times before, Trump was presented with an opportunity to realign the federal judiciary for a generation given the large number of Court of Appeals and District Court...

In November, Airbnb announced that it would delist Jewish homes, and only Jewish homes, in Judea and Samaria (the “West Bank”).

As I explained at the time, the delisting nominally referred to homes in Settlements, but in the West Bank that is the only place Jews can purchase or rent homes because...

Hillary is like an angry cat lying in wait.

Still furious that Orange Man Bad defeated her in 2016, and that Democrats of lesser worth (in her mind) are lining up to challenge Trump in 2020, she waits, still thinking of herself as the “real president.”

The U.S. has had a federal anti-Boycott law on the books since the 1970s, to counter the Arab League Boycott of Israel.
