    On Friday the U.S. Ambassador to Somalia, Stephen Schwartz, presented a gift to the new President of Somalia, a hat that reads “Make Somalia Great Again.” Ambassador Schwartz was appointed by former President Barack Obama and was sworn into his position in June 2016 according to the International Business Times. Reactions to this gesture on twitter were overwhelmingly negative because let’s face it: Somalia has never been great.

    Something new is happening before our eyes. Radicals are completing a takeover of the Democratic Party. Sure, there’s been a lot of mockery among conservatives about hyperventilating Democrats. Pundits point out the obvious: that Democrats screaming that Trump is illegitimate deliver no positive message for working class voters who want jobs and that mobs in black masks are not appealing. Such analyses fall short. After 8 years of exploiting and enflaming the grievances of identity politics, the Democratic Party is being eaten by the monster they rode to power. Radicals don’t need to be a majority – they never are....

    The head of the D.C. National Guard, Maj. Gen. Errol R. Schwartz, said Friday that he has been ordered removed from his command effective Jan. 20, 12:01 p.m., just as Donald Trump is sworn in as president. Schwartz’s forced departure will come in the midst of the presidential inauguration that he has spent months helping plan alongside D.C. police, the U.S. Secret Service and other top District officials. He will turn over command to an interim as power transfers from one president to the next, and just before the inaugural parade marches down Pennsylvania Avenue. “The timing is extremely unusual,”...

    US Secretary of State John Kerry called the bereaved parents of American terror victim Ezra Schwartz, 18, who was killed in a shooting attack in the West Bank last week, to express his condolences. Kerry made the call from Abu Dhabi, the first leg of his current Mideast tour which will bring him to Israel and the West Bank on Tuesday. He told reporters before contacting Schwartz’s parents that there was no justification for Palestinian terror attacks against Israelis. “Look at Ezra Schwartz, who got shot, and another young life cut short,” Kerry told reporters in Abu Dhabi, according to...

  • Remembering 'Gilligan's Island,' 'Brady Bunch' creator Sherwood Schwartz

    The Times wasn't kind when it reviewed "Gilligan's Island" in 1964, writing, "'Gilligan's Island' is a television series that never should have reached the air this season, or any other season." But the series defied critics and lasted for three seasons, eventually becoming a staple of syndication. Its creator, Sherwood Schwartz, died of natural causes Tuesday morning in Los Angeles. He was 94. Schwartz's impact on pop culture will long survive. In addition to "Gilligan's Island," Schwartz created the family sitcom "The Brady Bunch." Each series came affixed with its own memorably jolly theme song, with lyrics written by Schwartz

    Pennsylvania Democratic Rep. Allyson Schwartz, a leader of the party's House campaign committee, called Wednesday for Rep. Anthony Weiner to resign after he admitted he sent lewd photos to women and talked dirty with them via Twitter and Facebook. Weiner's behavior was so offensive he has lost the ability to command respect from his constituents and brought dishonor to the House, Schwartz said. "As Americans we have the right to expect better behavior from members of Congresss, leaders of our country," Schwartz said in an interview. "I don't think we should accept it."

In opening up about the 1952 debacle, the CIA is finding ways to use it as a teaching tool. Mistakes of the past can serve as cautionary tales for today's spies and paramilitary officers taking on al-Qaida and other terrorist targets. At the center of the story are two eager CIA paramilitary officers...

    The Air Force chief of staff is going to make his case with Defense Secretary Robert Gates in the coming weeks for more F-22 Raptor jets. Gen. Norton Schwartz said that the Air Force is looking to buy more than the 183 radar-evading F-22s now ordered, but fewer than the 381 planes the Air Force has insisted on in past years. The Obama administration has a congressionally mandated deadline of March 1 to decide whether to approve more than the 183 F-22s already ordered. Air Force officials and analysts have said that out of the 183 fighter jets, only 100...

But before Hsu made headlines as a fugitive fundraiser late last month (he's now in custody in California for a 1991 grand theft conviction), he served on a board with another key figure in the earlier fundraising scandal. For more than a year, Hsu was a member of the board for the New School University in New York, where he worked with Bernard L. Schwartz....

    Two weeks back, the Chinese military shocked America by shooting one of China's aging satellites out of the sky with a ground-based missile. As it happens, no American played a greater role in the success of that shoot-down than the much-discussed chairman and founder of Stonebridge International, Samuel "Sandy" Berger. I do not know whether the results pleased Berger, but I cannot imagine a better advertisement for his subsidiary, Stonebridge China. Berger knows these circles well. During the Clinton years, according to the New York Times, he served as "the point man for the White House's China policy." That policy,...

    It has been an interesting week here in Riyadh, a week in which the Saudis have worked hard to try to project a new image to the world. This is the birthplace of Osama Bin Laden. It is also the birthplace of most of the 11 September hijackers. Since that day, the world's perception of this country has changed dramatically. Saudi Arabia is no longer seen only as a country of spendthrift princes and princesses, but as a nation that produced people filled with hatred for the West.

    AS PRESIDENT BUSH prepares to begin his second term, he has an opportunity to turn a page in U.S. relations with Saudi Arabia. In crafting his policy, the president should draw on American experience with another ideologically expansionist dictatorship--one successfully countered and transformed thanks in part to U.S. policy--the Soviet Union. The president may be aided in this by his former Sovietologist secretary of state-designate, Condoleezza Rice.There are many telling parallels between the Soviet Union and Saudi Arabia. First, the USSR led, and Saudi Arabia now leads, an ideological movement with global reach. From the time of the Bolshevik revolution...

    On Tuesday the federal authorities struck another serious blow against the toleration of Islamist terrorist activities on American soil, by arresting five former leaders of the so-called Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, which, as I have previously argued, would be better called the Holy War Foundation.   HLF is, after all, a front for the Palestinian suicide terror gang Hamas, which is mainly funded by Saudi Arabia. < -snip- > HLF long functioned as the nerve center of the “Wahhabi lobby” in the U.S., headquartered in Texas, with branch offices in Paterson, N.J., Bridgeview, Ill., and San Diego.  Established...

    Since the shock of September 11th, and parallel to military intervention in Afghanistan and Iraq, U.S. government officials in various agencies have sought to "win hearts and minds" in the Arab and Muslim world by crafting publicity schemes and media projects. All of those produced so far have been characterized by a combination of bombast, naivete, and silliness that, according to many friendly watchers and listeners in the targeted publics, does more to undermine than to reinforce American credibility. First there was Charlotte Beers, a former executive at such leading advertising firms as Ogilvy & Mather, named Undersecretary of State...

The Palestinian, Sergeant Major Ahmed Mustafa Ibrahim Ali, was killed when members of the contingent in which the Americans were traveling returned fire. In the days since the first...

    ...On the other hand, Safaev differs on the issue of accommodating HT. "The human-rights community believes the government should have a dialogue with Muslim extremists, but it is difficult to do that with a secretive organization that does not have dialogue and compromise on its agenda," he says. ...According to Pyagay, "You must understand that we have had a long experience with communist ideology and practice. We learned history from the communist viewpoint, and we are familiar with [Vladimir] Lenin's methods.

    WASHINGTON -- Mayor Bloomberg's New York is only the most prominent example of a city recently fallen victim to a bad idea whose time has come: smoking bans in bars and restaurants. Bans have been imposed statewide in California, Florida, and Delaware, and even deep in tobacco country, in Lexington, Kentucky. This year, the movement came to Washington, D.C. Backed by a $250,000 grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the antismoking activists of Smokefree D.C. began lobbying the city council. Surely a well-funded effort to extend the ban to the nation's health conscious capital couldn't fail. Or could it?...

    The Jewish Ombudsman: Sippin' Geneva JuiceInside the surreal world of the Geneva Peace Accords, out-of-power politicians are leaders, their supporters carry weight, and the peace expert Tom Friedman gets violent. by Steven I. Weiss/ December 11, 2003 The recent Geneva Peace Accord exists in some sort of alternate dimension: Representatives from two sides in a conflict hack out an agreement without actually representing either side, or coming to agreement on many of the more pressing issues; a document that will guarantee peace has no provisions for stopping violence. An event last Thursday featured the authors of the Accord; adding to...

Here's the writer's account of what he saw Friedman do: Kick a little somethin' I run over to the stage to catch Tom Friedman for that question-and-answer he promised I'd get after his speech.

    Both before and after the latest round of so-called peace demonstrations, many respected liberals, leftists, and pacifists have expressed their concern over the events’ control by a tiny Stalinist cult, the "Workers World Party" or WWP. WWP created International A.N.S.W.E.R., the umbrella group for the protests, and WWP leaders, posing as peace activists, have gained extraordinary media access in recent weeks. In addition, the group manipulates former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark as a pliable puppet, in an effort to gain respectability.

Serge Trifkovic is not associated with either Pravda or He was not a supporter of Slobodan Milsoevic.

    n his recent writings on NRO (here and here) and elsewhere, and in his new book, The Two Faces of Islam, Stephen Schwartz appropriately draws the attention of policymakers and the public at large to the dangerous, unsavory interactions between the Saudi royal family, Wahhabi Islam, and international terrorism. Unfortunately, however, Mr. Schwartz identifies Wahhabism as the source of all Islamic terror and injustice. He does not mention that the twin institutionalized scourges of Islam at the crux of the violent, nearly 1,400-year relationship between Muslims and non-Muslims — i.e., jihad and dhimmitude — were already well-elaborated by the 8th...
