    THE DEAD BABY MEDIA If the text on that one is too small for you, it's a CNN piece headlined, "Why the Syrian regime is killing babies." There's not much to add to that. The Syrian regime may be killing babies, but CNN killed journalism. With some help from the New York Times, the Washington Post and the BBC. Anyone who has spent time in the Middle East knows quite well that parading around dead bodies is part of the Muslim ceremony of rallying for the next attack. These aren't funerals, these are corpse parades and the corpses are often...

    What is the miracle of Hanukkah really about? One days' worth of olive oil lasting for 8 days, was indeed, miraculous.... but there is so much more to this holiday than meets the eye. Hanukkah is the miraculous story of the Jewish People, and as you will see -the story never ended. It lives today in our times, through the miracle of the State of Israel, and the modern day Maccabees who stand alongside her. Watch this short and powerful video from Jerusalem, for illuminating insights and fascinating perspectives into the holiday of Hanukkah. Watch the video: Hanukkah - In...
  • Hillary to the Rescue, ‘Repairing the World’

    Hillary Clinton doesn't just want to give us all free healthcare, or fix things in Iraq. No, she's set her sights much, much higher -- nothing short of "repairing the world." At least, so says her avid supporter, Rep. Nita Lowey (D-NY). In the wake of Hillary's "National Women's Finance Council Summit," a campaign event in which she explicitly appealed to women to vote for her because of her sex [raising $1.5 million along the way], Lowey was a guest on this evening's "Tucker." Host Carlson was prodding the congresswoman to explain just what it is about a woman president...
  • Explaining Jews, Part V: Why Are Jews Liberal? (Dennis Prager Alert)

    The most frequently asked question I receive from non-Jews about Jews is, why are Jews so liberal? The question is entirely legitimate since Jews (outside of Israel) are indeed overwhelmingly liberal and disproportionately left of liberal as well. For example, other than blacks, no American group votes so lopsidedly for the Democratic Party. And the question is further sharpened given that traditional Jewish values are not leftist. That is why the more religiously involved the Jew, the less likely he is to be on the Left. The old saw, "There are two types of Jews -- those who believe Judaism...
  • Progressive rabbi fights Religious Right (More drivel from the left_

    "So then the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken unto them, was received up into heaven, and sat down on the right hand of God." -- Mark 16:19 Right hand. Right side. Right way. Religious Right. It is easy to understand how conservative Christians have influenced politics and populace in America, says Rabbi Michael Lerner. It has been about taking ownership of the human need to feel valued, protected and directed. The activist, author and former darling of the Clinton administration was on the Easter edition of "Meet the Press" to discuss faith, morality and politics and will speak in...
  • The Un-Greening of Tu B'Shvat

    Almost everything that most people "know" about Tu B'Shvat is totally wrong and completely false. Tu B'Shvat, the 15th day of the month of Shvat in the Jewish calendar, has been deconstructed in recent years and converted into a holiday of ecology and environmentalist political agitprop. It is waved about by the Tikkun Olam Pagans as a political banner to demand that all Jews support the Green political agenda. The wacko pagan "Eco-Judaism" movement, including its Tikkun dervishes, has made it their holiest of all holidays, a day to hug bushes and worship tree spirits and nature. And Jewish assimilationist...

    Much commentary has been written about President Bush's State of the Union address, but little attention given to what, for me, was a key to understanding his message, motivation, and character. It was the simple but eloquent statement: "...we must also remember our calling, as a blessed country, is to make this world better." This short phrase encapsulated the innate decency and world-view of George Bush as a profoundly religious man, intent on carrying out the duty of care and redemption of God's world. He believes, as did the founders of this nation, that America was and is blessed by...
