Veteran’s Day, 2017: My Favorite Veteran, Rabbi Chaplain Abraham Avrech z’l

My father, Rabbi Chaplain Abraham Avrech passed away on March 15, 2014. This is the fourth Veteran’s Day without my father’s physical presence in this world. He is gone, but like all veteran’s certainly not forgotten. Take a moment to ponder the enormous sacrifices made by our nation’s heroes and their families.

The Solace of Baseball

The baseball field is a study in fearful symmetry. Absent players, the field can be read as an abstract work of art. There are the green and brown fields of color bisected by sharp white lines and three small white squares. The gently sloping mound faces home plate creating a uniquely American geography.

Friday Photos: Democrat Privilege

Pop quiz: Why isn’t the Justice Department investigating the Clinton money laundering operation? Any other so-called charity would be under multiple federal and state indictments. Hillary Clinton had her own private server when she was Secretary of State. This is indefensible. She destroyed 30,000 emails? Does anyone believe that all these emails were about yoga […]

Friday Photos: Trompe L’oeil Nation

The idea is to fool the eye, to convince the viewer that the object exists in three dimensions. But of course, the surface is flat. It is a masterful illusion. So it is with Barack Obama and the postmodern Democrat party, who wage a ceaseless campaign of political trompe l’oeil. The Constitution, the separation of […]

Friday Photos: There is No End of History Edition

Benjamin Netanyahu, in his devastating deconstruction of disastrous Obama’s Iranian policy was, in spite of Obama’s unprecedented assault on the Jewish State’s Prime Minister, a Churchillian attempt to preserve Western civilization against the onslaught of IslamoNazis. Obama’s White House would have you believe that Obama’s problem is a personal beef with Bibi. In fact, Obama’s […]

Friday Photos: ObamaNet Edition

Few noticed that a significant  erosion of liberty took place this week in a room in Washington where three Democrat party commissars voted to classify the internet as a public utility. This means that over the next few years, slowly, almost imperceptibly, the federal government will levy increasingly heavy taxes on the internet. In ways […]

Friday Photos: Leviticus 25:10 Edition

Every week brings news that is at once shocking, and yet painfully familiar as Islamist barbarians rampage across the globe inflicting untold tortures and outrages. And yet, at the same time, Obama and the lapdog media insist that Islam is being misunderstood. You see, Islamist monsters are really “extremist zealots.” Question: Why do millions of […]
