There were two things I tried to avoid doing out of respect for President Obama’s leadership when I posted about his so-called National Security Agency reforms yesterday – to use the term (O)bam(a)boozled despite my itchiness to do so, and to call these reforms BS.

Do you know what’s missing in this debate about Edward Snowden and the National Security Agency? Perhaps the point that Americans likely have no idea of what their rights are! A lawyer friend of mine talked about an experiment conducted during Edward R. Murrow’s time where Americans were shown a copy of the Bill of […]Read More THE MISSING PIECE IN THE NSA BEEF
As we move closer to this Washington-hatched fantasy known as the Middle East Peace Talks between the Israelis and the Palestinians, watch this video of a Wednesday night exchange in the Israeli Knesset between Arab MK Jamal Zahalka and fellow Israeli lawmakers: Zahalka was subsequently heckled by Habayit Hayehudi lawmakers, who said, “You […]Read More NETANYAHU: NOT TRUE & NEVER
