Hey, Let’s Not Psychoanalyze Pharoah or Obama

A page from the Sarajevo Haggadah. Obama is a Socialist. Obama is a Marxist. Obama is a narcissist. Obama’s father abandoned him, thus he suffers from… Obama’s from a mixed marriage, thus he suffers from… Amatuer psychoanalysis of Barack Hussein Obama is rampant in the blogosphere. It’s fun—this intellectual exercise—but ultimately a waste of time. […]

Friday Fotos: Karen Koshers Keilim

When Torah observant Jews purchase new dishes or silverware, it is a mitzvah, a commandment/religious obligation to kosher these utensils in a mikvah, ritual bath. This is called Tevilas Keilim, literally translated as, immersing vessels. The other day, Karen and I took a road trip to Bed, Bath & Beyond—there’s so much stuff on display […]

ObamaCare: The Vise of Terror

Karen with Ariel at Yeshiva Ner Yisroel, 1998. Karen writes: I’ve been following the administration’s health care campaign for months, but it wasn’t until this past weekend, when the passage was clearly inevitable, that I realized why I was in such emotional turmoil. Never in my life have I been so deeply affected by a […]

Al Sharpton: Voting for Obama is a Vote for Socialism

Al Sharpton: “Well, first of all then we would have to say that the American public overwhelmingly voted for Socialism when they elected President Obama.” Roll the tape: At last, some clarity. And here’s my question for American liberals/progressives/whatever they’re calling themselves this week: Is Socialism objectionable to you? If you’ve been paying attention, Al […]

A family at the Passover table, illustration by Arthur Szyk. And this day shall become a memorial for you, and you shall observe it as a festival for the L-RD, for your generations, as an eternal decree shall you observe it. For seven days you shall eat unleavened bread, but on the first day you […]

Friday Footwear

Patriotic heels by Zanotti. Offspring #2 writes: I’m obsessed with my new shoes, they make me see almost eye-to-eye with Husband. Besides attractively elongating the calf and improving posture, high heels are a girl’s best friend if said girl is diminutive. Offspring #2, like her sister and mother, is modestly scaled. Look, my girlses might […]

Obamacare: The New American Tyranny

Update: The Dems have just voted to Slaughter democracy. Yesterday, Bret Baier of Fox News conducted an actual interview with Barack Hussein Obama. Baier asked real questions with relevant follow-up. In short, he was doing the job of an actual journalist. Something quite unique considering the slobbering Obama press corps. Obama—on the defensive the entire […]

Sarah Palin Rips Obama on Israel

Notice Sarah Palin’s lapel pin. I wear the same one on my suit. On her Facebook page, Sarah Palin scolds Barack Hussein Obama and his radical anti-Israel administration for embracing third world tyrants and communists while attacking America’s democratic and dependable ally, Israel. It’s all the rage among leftists—especially liberal Jews—to make fun of Sarah […]

The 2010 Census: Nuremberg, American Style

“I actually feel sick.” Karen is at her desk studying the 2010 U.S. Census form that just arrived in the mail. “What’s happening to this country?” Karen murmurs, “this obsession with race and color.” Indeed, the 2010 Census overflows with grim little boxes that demand to know your race, color, ethnicity, and tribe. The federal […]

The World Made Judenrein

Fatah just held a ceremony in Ramallah, naming a central square in honor of a terrorist. Keep in mind that Fatah are viewed as “moderates.” Also keep in mind that Barack Hussein Obama has created a major crisis with Israel over Ramat Shlomo, a Jewish neighborhood in Jewish Jerusalem in the Jewish State. Not a […]

Friday Fotos

I’m not feeling well. Probably a mild case of the flu. Can’t really concentrate. But here are two photos from Hillsdale College that should give you an inkling of what a very special place it is. An inspiring sculpture of George Washington on the Hillsdale Campus. A belated happy birthday to Offspring #3. Her birthday […]

Hillsdale College: The Films of 1939, Day Four

A bit more about the history of Hillsdale College. A higher percentage of Hillsdale students enlisted during the Civil War than from any other western college. Of the more than 400 who fought for the Union, four won the Congressional Medal of Honor, three became generals and many more served as regimental commanders. Sixty gave […]

Hillsdale College: The Films of 1939, Day Three

Hillsdale has a fine athletics program, baseball, footbal, basketball, track and field, etc. But what grabs my heart is their shooting range. At Hillsdale your practice the Second Amendment. Here is your faithful screenwriter observing the range, getting ready to shoot trap. I’m using a Beretta 12 gauge shotgun. The clay flies at about 40mph, […]

Hillsdale College: The Films of 1939, Day Two

Hillsdale College. The imposing but elegant Central Hall houses the administrative offices. I know it looks like classic MGM, but it’s actually Second Empire architectural style. No tattoos. No body piercings. That’s the first thing that hits me about the students here at Hillsdale College. This is an environment that is free from self-mutilations, an […]

For the next few days I will screen some landmark films from 1939, arguably, Hollywood’s greatest year, and attend lectures by distinguished film scholars. First impressions: Hillsdale is […]

Jews and Carburetors

Okay, I’m the first to admit that I know nothing about cars. In fact, I once wrote a pilot for a sitcom titled, Jews and Carburetors. The story of an immigrant Jewish family from the Ukraine who inherit an uncle’s auto repair shop in 1950’s California, when Detroit muscle cars reigned supreme. I thought my […]

A Woman’s Career

Anne Baxter, Bette Davis, Marilyn Monroe and George Sanders in All About Eve. One of the most well observed and cynical movies about actors and acting is Joseph Mankiewicz’s All About Eve, 1950. Bette Davis plays Margo Channing, an aging Broadway star whose personal life and career are jeopardized by the treacherous Eve Harrington, Anne […]

Abuse of Power

Make no mistake about it, Barack Hussein Obama is a radical leftist whose vision is to transform America into a Socialist European-style nanny state. From foreign policy—where Obama is in the process of sticking it to the UK’s Falkland Islands—the Obama administration is breaking with the principled governance predicated upon American exceptionalism. Yesterday, I attended […]

Dubai: On the Lookout for Jews

The media are in a self-righteous frenzy about the assassination of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, a Hamas terrorist. Was it a Mossad hit? Probably. Hope so. Hey, I’m having trouble getting all worked up about the assassination of a known […]
