David Brooks And A Figment Of The Neoconservative Imagination
Huffington Post - about 10 hours
Angst in the Church of America the Redeemer Cross-posted with TomDispatch.com Apart from being a police officer, firefighter, or soldier engaged in one of this nation’s endless wars, writing a column for a major American newspaper has got to be one of the toughest and most unforgiving jobs there is.  The pay may be decent (at least if your gig is with one of the major papers in New York or Washington), but the pressures to perform on cue are undoubtedly relentless. Anyone who has ever tried cramming a coherent and ostensibly insightful argument into a mere 750 words knows what I’m talking about.  Writing op-eds does not perhaps qualify as high art.  Yet, like tying flies or knitting sweaters, it requires no small amount of skill.  Performing the trick week in and week out without too obviously recycling the same ideas over and over again ― or at least while disguising repetitions and concealing inconsistencies ― requires notable gifts. David Brooks of the New York Times is a ...

Technology Has Disrupted The Leak Tradition
Huffington Post - 4 days
Early in episode four of Showtime’s “Homeland”, an angry President-elect Elizabeth Keane (Elizabeth Marvel) faces CIA Director Dar Adal (F. Murray Abraham) and says, “if you think it’s wise to tie the President’s hands so publicly, what’s not wise is peddling unverified and politically motivated horseshit to the press. And if you can’t find me the ‘career officers’ responsible, I’ll get someone who can.” Pure synchronicity. Since, at the time of the airing, President Trump was facing a similar situation that would lead to the termination of his National Security advisor, Michael T. Flynn. Not since the assassination of President John F. Kennedy has the mainstream media been so focused on the deep state. “’Deep state’ has historically been associated with countries like Turkey, where sophisticated shadow governments allegedly control or influence key aspects of state policy,” notes Amanda Taub in the ‘New York Times’. Winston Churchill referred to the state within the state a ...

Liberals, Republicans, and the Jews Between Them

Donald Trump signs orders to green-light the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines. Source: Donald Trump's Twitter Account US Jewry stands out more than any Jewish community in history. They will determine if this works for them or against them. For several months now, I have been writing about the exposure of the totalitarian nature of today's liberalism, the manipulation of public opinion through the media, and the necessity of American society to embrace all views, not only all colors and ethnicities. During those months, the divide between Democrats and Republicans has only deepened. If we could still hope that the demeaning attitudes toward the other side, the personal offenses, and the delegitimization campaigns would abate after the election, now that hope is gone. The entire left-hand column of The New York Times home page has become a section titled, "The 45th President," and is dedicated entirely to bashing Donald Trump and the Republican Party. CNN has also created a ...

On International Holocaust Remembrance Day
Huffington Post - about 1 month
The UN designated January 27 as International Holocaust Remembrance Day. This was the day, in 1945, that the Soviet army liberated Auschwitz, the infamous Nazi German death camp that has come to symbolize the demonic depths to which the Third Reich descended in the "industrialization" of genocide. In the Jewish tradition, we are commanded to remember (zachor) and not to forget (lo tishkach). Let us remember... ...the six million Jews, including 1.5 million children, who were exterminated in the Holocaust (in Hebrew, Shoah). ...the entirely new alphabet created by the Nazis for the Final Solution -- from the letter "A" for Auschwitz to the letter "Z" for Zyklon-B. ...not only the tragic deaths of the six million Jews, but also their vibrant lives--as shopkeepers and craftsmen, scientists and authors, teachers and students, parents and children, husbands and wives. ...the richly hued and ancient Jewish civilizations that were destroyed--from Salonika to Vilna, from Ams ...

Reince Priebus Complains About The Press Trying To Delegitimize Donald Trump
Huffington Post - about 1 month
White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus went after the press Sunday for trying to “delegitimize” President Donald Trump, a man who spent years telling the country that Barack Obama was not constitutionally eligible to be president.  “I’m saying there’s an obsession by the media to delegitimize this president, and we are not going to sit around and let it happen,” Priebus said on “Fox News Sunday.” “We are going to fight back tooth and nail every day, and twice on Sunday.” Priebus was upset that the press focused so much on the small crowd size at Trump’s inauguration compared to the crowds at Obama’s gathering in 2009. Early estimates put the crowd gathered for Trump’s inauguration at about one-third the size of Obama’s in 2009 https://t.co/v0rGLZv00N pic.twitter.com/97elpXg1CS — NYT Politics (@nytpolitics) January 20, 2017 Priebus said “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace, who put up the photos and told the chief of staff to look at them, was not compar ...

These Are The Best Name Ideas For 2017 Babies
Huffington Post - about 2 months
If new parents in 2017 were limited to only 100 possible baby name options, what should they be? Nameberry is attempting to answer this question. We’ve whittled down the thousands of possibilities to find the 100 baby names that we believe are most emblematic of our times ― while also being both somewhat timeless and forward-facing. The names here are perfect for a 2017 baby yet will serve him or her well into the turn of the next century (now there’s an amazing thought). Of course, there are hundreds of other baby names that potentially fit these criteria. But if we are limited to only 100, these are our picks for the very best of the best ― and our reasons why.

During his time as a Member of Parliament, Churchill visited Beijing with a delegation of other MPs, including Clement Freud, a grandson of the psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud. Freud asked why Churchill was given the best room in the hotel and was told it was because Churchill was a grandson of Britain's most illustrious Prime Minister.
