Obama’s Plan to Bankrupt America in One Easy Lesson

Bridge for sale. No money down. Easy monthly payments. Okay, I’m no math genius. Certainly, your faithful screenwriter is not an economist. But I do have common sense. I understand that people should spend less than they earn in order to remain solvent and build wealth through a disciplined program of diversified investments. But I […]

Israel’s Twin Enemies

The blood of Iranian dissidents runs in the streets of Tehran, but the Obama administration is still anxious to talk with the mullahs about their nuclear program because, well, the Islamic tyrants are obviously so reasonable. You see, Barack Hussein Obama does not want to meddle—no soaring rhetoric for those who are begging for it—in […]

2009 Ariel Avrech Memorial Lecture

Ariel Chaim ZT’L flies like an angel, 1981. The Sixth Annual Ariel Avrech Memorial Lecture is up and live. The title of Rabbi Steven Pruzansky’s lecture is: Conformity in Jewish Life: Virtue, Vice or Affectation? Is conformity a Torah ideal, and should we encourage it in our children and communities ? Or does conformity restrict […]

Top Secret Tool: Offspring #2’s Wedding Footwear

To be opened after Offspring #3’s August wedding. “Oooo, I just can’t wait for my new shoes to arrive,” says Offspring #2. Karen and I are spending Shabbat in Teaneck. We’re about to sit down for our Friday night Shabbat dinner—Karen and Offspring #2 darted about the kitchen as if in a Offenbach opera—when Offspring […]

If At First You Don’t Succeed Grovel, Grovel Again

Iran’s supreme butcher Ayatollah Ali Khamenei ridicules pen pal Obama. This is definitely from the Neville Chamberlain school of international relations. Prior to the current uprising in the streets of Iran, Barack Hussein Obama sent a letter to the mullahs begging them to, y’know, like us, to really like us. Naturally, Khamenei ridiculed Obama’s groveling […]

The Savages are Loose, Obama Waits to See How it Plays Out

“You should stop this… you should help the people of Iran who demand freedom… You should help us…” Nah. Barack Hussein Obama would rather sit down and chat with mass murderering mullahs because, y’know, he’s just so darned smart and charming that his Jedi force field will convince them to give up their nuclear program, […]

Obama’s Push for a Judenrein Jerusalem

If I Forget Thee O’ Jerusalem, Let My Right Hand Wither.Photo by Robert J. Avrech, all rights reserved. Let’s review: Barack Hussein Obama’s mentor for over 20-years was the Jew-hating Jeremiah Wright. Obama was a faithful member of Wright’s, so-called church, where Jew-hater Louis Farrakhan was lionized. Obama was buddy-buddy with American terrorists/trust fund babies […]

Obama and Mullahs to Celebrate July 4th, Good Times

Neda Salehi Agha Soltan will not be attending aJuly 4th barbecue. But her murderers will. Engagement. It’s the magical concept for Barack Hussein Obama. Because, y’know, he can just charm the Jew-hating (shades of Jeremiah Wright) America-hating (Wright again) mullahs; convince the tyrants to give up their nuclear program and their vow to eliminate Israel […]

Blood in the Streets

Neda Soltan’s last words were: “I’m burning, I’m burning!” The following video is graphic. A young Iranian woman, Neda Salehi Agha Soltan, 27, was standing with her father and watching the protests in Tehran, when she was shot in the chest by the Basij, the Brownshirts of the current Islamic regime. She is in her […]

Hollywood Good Guys: Liev Schreiber & Naomi Watts

Hollywood stars Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts, with their two children Samuel, 3, and Alexander, 1, recently visited Israel. Schreiber said his grandfather was a strong Zionist who had always begged him to go to Israel. His grandfather died before he could make that happen, so this trip resonates for him. It may also have […]

Hamas: From Gaza to Tehran

All in a day’s work for Hamas. Hamas, the fanatic, Jew-hating terrorists who occupy and rule Gaza, are now doing what they do best—murder, torture and intimidation—on behalf of the current military/Islamic dictatorship in Iran. You see Barack Hussein Obama does not want to meddle in Iranian affairs, but Hamas has no such compunctions. Not […]

Obama’s Anti-Rational Losing Streak

Karen and I are sitting in Kennedy Airport, waiting for our flight—delayed, delayed—when Barack Hussein Obama gives his rambling non-statement on the chaos currently gripping Iran. In Kennedy, you are a prisoner to CNN—Pravda pixels. Karen expresses outrage at the deliberate blackout of Fox News—also enforced on Virgin America Airlines—and then declares Obama’s gutless statesmanship […]

Friday Flickers: Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde

It’s perfect material for the movies: The struggle between good and evil. Man’s dual nature. The conflict between earthly desires and heavenly aspirations. There’s a good girl and, naturally, a bad girl; all neatly folded into a narrative that wrestles with questions of free will and man’s place in G-d’s universe. There’s also kinky Victorian […]

Honey, Supper’s in the Oven, I’m Out Killing Jews

H/T: Israellycool A few observations: 1. The video material that makes up the bulk of this news report is a not-so-slick promo film staged by the public relations department of Hamas, hence it is propaganda. 2. The intent of the propaganda is to give the illusion that Arab Muslim women in Gaza are enthusiastically training […]

I Was Raped By The Taliban And I liked It…

Joanie de Rijke, feminist friend to the Taliban. Ever wonder why so-called western “feminists” rarely protest the savage oppression of women in Muslim countries? In Afghanistan women who try and get an education regularly have acid thrown in their faces. Or they are murdered in the streets. In Saudi Arabia women are forbidden to drive. […]

Hollywood Unveiled: John Wayne Walks Like a Girl

John Wayne walks the walk in Hondo, 1953. It’s in the walk. Think of Mae West, hands caressing her Rubenesque hips, head tilted, not just sauntering, but oozing forward, the exaggerated female. Elbows cocked and angled at his hips, moving with concentrated energy, Jimmy Cagney looks like a coiled spring about to explode. Joan Crawford, […]

Obamanomics

H/T: Mahnishmah. Hebrew for: “What’s New.” And Homicide Horses. Yup, Palestinian culture at work. Wonder if PETA is going to object. Palestinian woman faces death penalty as a spy for Israel. Who knows. But take a look at her circumstances. Sounds like another, ahem, honor killing—but blaming the Jooz.. Yup, Palestinian culture at work. Wonder […]
