Trump, Netanyahu and primal rage

Ron Jager, an IDF veteran and former Commander of Israel’s Central Psychiatric Military Clinic for Reserve Soldiers, has written an insightful piece comparing the unhinged and slanderous attempts to oust President Donald Trump with the unhinged and slanderous attempts to oust Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Jager notes: “The Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, has lead Israel to become a world leader of innovation, a nation at peace with the majority of the Muslim Sunni nations, a country where the life expectancy is one of the world’s longest, and…

Trump, Brexit and diaspora Jews

The passionate Knesset speech by Vice President Mike Pence, endorsing the Jews’ miraculous return to Israel and Jerusalem, vividly illustrated how the tectonic plates in world politics have now moved. For Pence, of course, it was personal. As a biblically faithful Christian, he doesn’t just believe deeply in Jewish redemption in the land of Israel. He also understands that America itself rests upon the values of the Hebrew Bible. The significance of the speech, however, lay not with Pence but with President Donald Trump. For Trump may not have the…

FBI loses swamp scandal texts. Nothing to see, move along there

Ok, this is all getting completely out of hand. Here are some more amazing developments in the Washington swamp of which you may be unaware if you rely on the mainstream media. To recap. Last year saw revelations about FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page. The significance was this. Strzok, when deputy chief of counterintelligence, oversaw the Trump investigation when it was opened in July 2016 and had previously been a top investigator on the Clinton email probe. Both Strzok and Page worked on Special Counsel Robert…

A scandal maybe so enormous it has produced… silence and muted disdain

If you are in Britain and relying on the BBC and mainstream media for your information, you probably won’t know that a political scandal has been developing in the Washington swamp which has the potential to make Watergate look positively puny by comparison. You probably won’t know that what passes for the accepted wisdom about President Trump may be in the process of being turned on its head. The reason there’s been no news coverage is that it suggests Trump has been not the instigator but the target of collusion…

Oprah for president is a preposterous idea

US President Oprah Winfrey. Well, why not? The days when we might have laughed at such a ridiculous idea are long gone. Now we have in the White House a TV star with zero previous experience of politics or diplomacy. So why not have another one? …it mistakes the reason Trump was elected. Whatever you may think of the flaws in his personality and temperament, his voters were motivated by the concerns he promised to address: the need to uphold the constitution after its erosion by the Obama administration, to…

The real Trump derangement

Michael Wolff’s now famous book quotes people who suggest that President Donald Trump is, among other things, nuts. His accusers, of course, exhibit only the most consistent rationality, sense of proportion and solid connection to reality. Er, right. Consider. Trump allegedly called Haiti and El Salvador, along with other African nations, “sh*tholes” and asked why so many of their citizens had ever been permitted to enter America. Cue uproar in which Trump’s remarks were denounced as racist by the UN, the African Union and of course the massed ranks of…

Hollywood protest was another vanity parade

Never mind the movies: the theatricality and demand for applause at the Golden Globe awards in Los Angeles at the weekend took place on the red carpet. Actors wore black outfits to signal their solidarity with victims of the sexual harassment scandals that have consumed Hollywood. It’s hard to recall a more egregious display of vanity signalling than the black dress protest. It was “please snap me while I pose in my conscience”. MeToo! MeToo! Shortly before the awards there was a crisis. Forget Iran, Syria or North Korea. So…

The true presidential collusion scandal

A US President colluding with a hostile foreign power against the interests of his own country? Sounds like a scandalous abuse of the US constitution demanding high level investigation. Yet while Special Counsel Robert Mueller pursues his corrupted investigation of a non-existent collusion scandal involving President Trump, a real one has been exposed involving President Obama. Politico has published an explosive investigative piece by Josh Meyer which states that the Obama administration shut down a federal inquiry into international drug smuggling, money laundering and terrorism by Hezbollah in order to…

A savage evisceration. And so, so true

The American Spectator has published a quite brilliant polemic by Dov Fischer. It is about the hallucinatory hypocrisy of the left in its sustained attempt to defame and destroy the presidency of Donald Trump, and it is an utterly excoriating, eviscerating, savage must-read. And it’s so, so true. Here’s part of it: “The man honors Martin Luther King — and they call him “racist.” He goes to civil rights museums, and they call him “racist.” He meets in the Oval Office with presidents of Black Colleges, and they call him…

Conflicts of interest, anyone?

How’s that Trump impeachment thingy comin’ along? Ben Shapiro writes that CNN has published text messages between the former second-in-command in FBI counterintelligence, Peter Strzok, and his mistress and co-worker Lisa Page. Strzok was involved in the Hillary Clinton email investigation, instrumental in helping to launch the investigation into supposed collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign, and staffed on the Trump-Russia investigation itself. He was fired by special investigator Robert Mueller after these texts were uncovered. One text dated August 15 2016 reads: “I want to believe the path…
