SS guards dumping bodies into mass grave in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp I have been watching with increasing dismay, and disgust, at the Trump-hating hordes invoking terms such as “Hitler,” “Nazis” and “concentration camps’ to show their opposition to the Trump Administration. Making absurd and outrageous comparisons shows very sloppy thinking, and it only increases the hysteria that the Democrats are creating about our immigration policy. Here is a “gem” from Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Dummy): Dem CT Sen Blumenthal: This policy of family separation reminds us of the cattle cars of Nazi Germany when children were separated from their parents and marched to supposed showers..it reminds us of all the darkest periods in American history..it should be stopped right away....

Was it Michelle Obama who said: “When they go low, we go…even lower” ? Or something. Via The Hill. The White House is slamming a Democratic House hopeful one day after the Virginia candidate, a military veteran, released an ad comparing President Trump to Osama bin Laden. The administration called on House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to denounce Dan Helmer, who is running against Rep. Barbara Comstock (R). “The message sent in a campaign ad from a congressional candidate from Virginia is nothing short of reprehensible. Leaders from across the political spectrum — starting with Leader Pelosi — must swiftly condemn this abhorrent message,” said Raj Shah, a White House spokesman. Helmer’s ad calls Trump the “greatest threat to...

Somehow, I don’t think this school held a “moment of silence” in February for the three members of the Salomon family, who were stabbed to death in their home by a Palestinian terrorist. But maybe they can hold another moment of silence next March 10th… Osama bin Laden’s birthday. Via JTA. Students at a selective New York City public school participated in a moment of silence for the Palestinian victims of violence on the Gazan border with Israel, angering some parents. The moment of silence was held a week ago at the Beacon School located in the Hell’s Kitchen area of Manhattan. The school “tends to lean left,” the New York Post reported…. Some Jewish parents told the Post that...

Karl Marx is known as the “Father of Communism.” I’m not sure what Karl Marx was right about, but the writer of the NYT Op-Ed piece seems to fit a quote by another Marx, named Groucho: “He may look like an idiot and talk like an idiot but don’t let that fool you. He really is an idiot.” Via Daily Wire. On Monday, Kyung Hee University associate philosophy professor Jason Barker penned an op-ed for The New York Times celebrating Karl Marx’s birthday with this exciting headline: “Happy Birthday, Karl Marx. You Were Right!”…. What, exactly, was Marx right about? According to Barker, he was right that “capitalism is driven by a deeply divisive class struggle in which the ruling-class...

The ‘Palestinians,’ with the help of the Israel-hating U.N., already claimed themselves as the “rightful owners” of the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem, the ‘Tomb of the Patriarchs’ in Hebron (The world’s most ancient Jewish site and the second holiest place for Jews, where the patriarchs and matriarchs of the Jewish people – Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Sarah, Rebecca, and Leah are buried), and the ‘Western Wall’ in Jerusalem, which is the only remaining wall of the outside courtyard of King Solomon’s Temple. When they are finished with their list of Jewish and Christian sites, maybe they can move on to claim ownership of the Eiffel Tower. And maybe Buckingham Palace. And the Washington Monument. Stay tuned. Via Jerusalem Post....

‘Perfect” for Tammy’s sequel to ‘The Death of Right and Wrong’ Via Guardian. A Berlin art installation dedicated to “martyrs” has prompted outrage by including one of the Paris jihadist attackers alongside the likes of Martin Luther King and Socrates, with the French embassy calling the display “deeply shocking”. The so-called Martyr Museum by a Danish art collective shows the portraits of 20 people throughout history who “died for their convictions” accompanied by short biographies. The exhibition includes an image of French jihadist Ismael Omar Mostefai, one of three gunmen and suicide bombers who stormed the Bataclan concert venue in Paris in 2015, killing 90 people…. Also sharing a wall with US civil rights icon King and Greek philosopher Socrates...

The BBC’s anti-Israel bias has a long history. Their distorted headlines and stories have been well-documented. When it comes to Israel, they are first-class purveyors of distorted news. Here is a classic example of their passive-aggressive attempts to slant their coverage to erase Jewish claims to the land of Israel: Via Honest Reporting. An initially positive feature on the BBC Travel website focuses on the Israel city of Caesarea, specifically the discovery of 2,000 gold coins on the ocean floor, the largest stash ever found in the region. The author of the piece covers Caesarea’s fascinating ancient history, referring to Phoenicians and Greeks and eventually the Romans: ….And who were the “native people” who revolted against Roman rule between 66...

Operation Bribery, er, Constrain ? How about Operation Firing Squad? Via Daily Mail. Terror suspects including jihadis returning from fighting in Syria are to be offered taxpayer-funded homes, counselling and help finding jobs to stop them carrying out attacks in Britain. The top-secret Government strategy, codenamed Operation Constrain, could even allow fanatics to jump to the top of council house waiting lists. Official documents seen by The Mail on Sunday reveal that up to 20,000 extremists previously investigated by MI5 will be targeted with what critics last night described as ‘bribes’ aimed at turning them away from extremism….

Kudos to Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Michael Goodwin of the NY Post, for calling out Mayor Bill de Blasio’s outrageous remarks, which were published in a recent interview in NY Magazine. Mayor de Blah Blah Blasio fancies himself a “progressive.” But here he sounds like a socialist dictator. Via New York Magazine. ….What’s been hardest is the way our legal system is structured to favor private property. I think people all over this city, of every background, would like to have the city government be able to determine which building goes where, how high it will be, who gets to live in it, what the rent will be. I think there’s a socialistic impulse, which I hear every day, in...

Just as Nancy is asked this hard-hitting, er, ridiculous softball question, the screen jumps to…the weather. Via American Mirror. ….Maybe it was God, maybe it was a stunned producer who fainted and hit the machine, but just as Ken Wayne asked, “Do you think you’re holy?” the production went awry….

Sounds ridiculous? So is declaring the Jewish site “Tomb of the Patriarchs” in Hebron…“Palestinian” Via Israel National News. ….Well why not? If they own the Cave of the Patriarchs all bets are off and they own EVERYTHING…. In fact I’d be surprised if Mahmoud Abbas hasn’t already put in his bid. All he has to do is ask and UNESCO says sure, it’s yours…. Back in October those jokers decided that Jews have no rights to the Temple Mount and other parts of Biblical Jerusalem. If you thought that was funny…. Now here they come again, as of Friday, to declare that the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron belongs to the Palestinian Authority (PA). This presents a fascinating mathematical...

This is a new low for the anti-Jewish UNESCO. According to the Bible, the patriarchs and matriarchs of the Jewish people – Abraham and Sarah, Isaac and Rebecca, Jacob and Leah- are buried in Hebron. The Arabs revere Abraham, but how does this very ancient holy Jewish site somehow become “Palestinian” ? As Benjamin Netanyahu said, in 2015, when UNESCO demanded that Israel renounce claim of their religious sites: “The attempt to detach the people of Israel from its heritage is absurd…if the places where the fathers and mothers of the Jewish nation are buried… some 4,000 years ago are not part of the Jewish heritage then what is?” And, on a personal note, my mother’s cousins emigrated from Russia...

The children are, however, allowed to give thanks to the sun and rain at mealtime, instead of saying grace. Just wondering: Would the Municipality have any objection if the kids gave thanks to…Allah? Via Breitbart. Children at a Christian preschool in Sweden are no longer allowed to say grace at mealtimes, “Amen”, or talk about the Bible, after a ruling by the Umeå municipality…. The municipality said it felt that children at the Salvation Army-run kindergarten were not given enough of an opportunity to opt out of saying grace at mealtimes. “The Education Act can be interpreted in different ways,” said the preschool’s manager Britt Marie Mårtensson. She told STV she did not think grace at kindergarten would come under...

Remember in ‘o8, when Candidate Barack Hussein Obama said this: If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” Obama said at a Philadelphia fundraiser…. “Because from what I understand folks in Philly like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans.” But Donald Trump is the problem? Got it. And, as always, Tammy gets it just right, eerily predicting yesterday’s violence in her 2/22/17 column at the Washington Times: The Trump-Reagan parallels: Both were mocked and ridiculed, but relentless assault has unexpected consequences And this, written a day before the shooting: Trump and the liberal hate-fest Via Daily Caller. A Huffington Post writer appeared to criticize the baseball shooter for poor planning Wednesday, saying “violent resistance” has...

The Liberal Drama-Queens’ hysteria over Hillary’s defeat has taken a very ugly turn. This is really unacceptable and disgusting: Via Heat Street. President-elect Donald Trump and Dylann Roof, the 22-year-old who was found guilty Thursday on 33 charges related to the murder of nine black churchgoers in South Carolina, are “brothers in white resentment,” according to Slate. Slate political correspondent Jamelle Bouie draws a parallel between Trump’s remarks while announcing his run for president on June 16, 2015 — “The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everyone else’s problems” — and the racist rantings Roof published before committing mass slaughter on June 17, 2015…. “Indeed, when read together, Trump’s announcement and Roof’s manifesto offer a duet in racial grievance,”...
