Joe Biden Bows to Force Majeure

Kneeling before Israelis is latest indication of who rules in Washington If one were only limited to viewing or reading the US mainstream media the story of how President Joe Biden went down on his knees to honor two visiting Israelis would never have surfaced. Fortunately, the story did make considerable waves in both the […]

More on Domestic Terrorism: Who Will Be the Target?

We have been taught undesired and quite frankly hypocritical lessons by four presidents in a row and perhaps it is now time that we be left alone! When the so-called war on domestic terrorism was declared quite early on in the Joe Biden Administration it provoked a wave of dissent from those who recognized that […]

Change in the Middle East?

New Israeli government controls the agenda The media focus on the Summit meeting between Presidents Joe Biden and Vladimir Putin has to a certain extent crowded out news about the new government in Israel, headed by hardline nationalist Naftali Bennett. In those media outlets that are actually discussing the change there is an odd sort […]

Talking About Israel

The relationship with Israel is poison for the United States   A recent article by Andrew Sullivan in the New York magazine considers how one might discuss the issue of Israel and its powerful domestic lobby without being accused of anti-Semitism. Sullivan is a keen observer of the dynamics of American political power and the article pretty clearly lays […]

Attacking Iran

Fake news about a terrorist connection could serve as a pretext for war   Observers of developments in the Middle East have long taken it as a given that the United States and Israel are seeking for an excuse to attack Iran.

Getting Rid of Omar: Neoconservatives Dig Deep to Remove a Critic of Israel

  It has been observed that the neoconservatives are a lot like the legendary bird the Phoenix, which burns to death and then, miraculously, rises from the ashes in new plumage. The neocons first rose to prominence under President Ronald Reagan, when they took over key offices in the Pentagon. They were subsequently somewhat ostracized […]

What If They Started a War and No One Showed Up?

  The humiliation of United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Warsaw last week was a good thing. The ancient Greeks, exercising their demonstrated ability to synthesize defining characteristics, had a word for it: hubris. Hubris is when one develops an extreme and unreasonable feeling of confidence in a certain course of action that […]

The Growing Anti-Semitism Scam

“An anti-Semite used to mean a man who hated Jews. Now it means a man who is hated by Jews.”– Joe Sobran   In his novel 1984 George Orwell invented the expression “newspeak” to describe the ambiguous or deliberately misleading use of language to make political propaganda and narrow the “thought options” of those who […]

Being Marco Rubio

The boyish senator from Florida is owned by the Israel Lobby   Americans consistently indicate in opinion polls that they approve of congress less than any other part of the federal government. The approval rating is sometimes in the single digits. As the congress was intended, per the Founders, to serve as the direct link […]

Who Is Right on America’s Enemies?

Does the intelligence community need to go back to school?   Two weeks ago, the heads of the United States intelligence and security agencies presented their annual “Worldwide Threat Assessment Report”  to Congress. The report inevitably made front page news because it appeared to contradict President Donald Trump on a number of key points, most […]
