Alexander Hamilton: You know the name, but what do you know about the man? Joseph Tartakovsky, senior fellow at the Claremont Institute, details how Hamilton took a country with no past and envisioned its future.
The IslamoNazis who call themselves Palestinians—a nationality invented by the KGB—have zero interest in building a functioning state. Their mission is to destroy the only successful state in the Middle East, Israel, the Jewish state. So obsessive is their Jew-hatred and jealousy—how did the Jews build a thriving country where Islam builds only failed states?—that they pay generous bounties for every Jew who is murdered, maimed, and tortured.
The Europeans tried to rid the world of Jews during World War II. For a few post-war years Europeans feigned remorse, and even rewrote history to cast themselves as heroic resistance fighters instead of collaborators. But in truth, Europeans who risked their lives to rescue Jews were few and far between.
With the rise of the European left, the newly founded state of Israel presented a new and juicy target for their latent Jew-hatred. “Hey, we don’t hate Jews, we’re just against Zionism.”
In the beginning of his legendary career, Kirk Douglas (1916 – ) b. Issur Danielovitch, was almost typecast as a well-meaning but ineffectual husband in two fine films, The Strange Love of Martha Ivers, 1946, and A Letter to Three Wives, 1949. But his career ascended into mega-stardom when he played cynical heroes motivated by rage: Champion, 1949, Ace in the Hole, 1951, The Bad and the Beautiful, 1952, Paths of Glory, 1957, Spartacus, 1960, and his favorite picture, Lonely Are the Brave, 1962,
Douglas was never a conventional leading man. Though handsome as a fairy tale prince, he wielded his masculine beauty like a weapon. There was none of the gruff, working class charm that made Gable the King. Douglas was not an urbane gentleman like William Powell, nor a witty charmer like Cary Grant.
Kirk Douglas excelled at playing, in his own words, “sons of bitches.”
The great pioneering director D.W. Griffith hired Rabbi Isadore Myers as the Jewish technical consultant on his great epic, Intolerance, 1916. Griffith was so happy with Rabbi Myer’s expert advice and attention to detail that he said to the good Rabbi:
“How can I ever repay you?”
Replied Rabbi Myers: “I have a daughter who would like to get into pictures.”
