Last Leftists of Watergate Make One Last Effort To Tag Nixon for Vietnam

Tue, 10 Jan 2017 11:39:01 EST

Like Japanese veterans of World War II stumbling, emaciated, out of the jungles of Guam and the Philippines many years after the end of the war, near-terminal victims of Watergate fever still wander dazedly into the press with some new angle on the moldering, feculent myth that something useful was actually achieved in the bloodless assassination of Richard Nixon in the Watergate inanity.Nixon salvaged the Vietnam War the Democrats had pushed their own leader, Lyndon Johnson, into; the...

Kerry Leaves Public Life The Way He Came In Turning Against an Ally

Thu, 29 Dec 2016 03:05:40 EST

It looks like Secretary of State Kerry is determined to go out the way he came in wrapping himself in the flag while betraying the causes of both America and its allies. He came in by doing that to Vietnam and is going out by turning on Israel.Mr. Kerry's tirade against Jewish settlements in liberated Judea and Samaria was breathtaking in its mendacity. Before a captive audience at the State Department, the lame-duck diplomat went on for more than an hour, blaming President Obama's failures...

How Jews Gained Okay For 'Close Settlement'Of Judea and Samaria

Wed, 28 Dec 2016 16:21:30 EST

President Obama's passive aggression toward Israel has been evident ever since his Cairo speech five months after his accession to the presidency. After affirming "unbreakable" bonds between America and Israel, he segued to Palestinians. They "endure the daily humiliations . . . that come with occupation" an "intolerable situation." America, he pledged, "will not turn our backs on the legitimate Palestinians aspiration for dignity, opportunity, and a state of their own." Then he departed to...

Israel-America Treaty Beckons as a Strategy Against a Hostile U.N.

Mon, 26 Dec 2016 08:01:26 EST

One of the paradoxes of Zionism is that a movement for Jewish national self-determination has found itself so often at the mercy of gentiles. Precedent for this goes all the way back at least to Cyrus the Great, the Persian king who 2,600 years ago allowed the Jews to return to the promised land and rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem.In modern times, Lord Balfour, the British foreign secretary, issued the landmark declaration on November 2, 1917: "His Majesty's Government view with favor the...

Call It the Dugri Doctrine: Plain Talk From Trump Startles the Middle East

Sat, 17 Dec 2016 07:30:06 EST

Roughly translated, "dugri" means "straightforwardness." Antonym: diplomatic ambiguity. The Turkic word, pronounced DOOH-gree, entered the Hebrew language and became a staple of Israeli discourse. President-elect Trump's approach to diplomacy appears to appreciate dugri.And, hey, an American non-ambiguous dugri may just be what Middle East diplomacy now requires. Take the nomination of David Friedman, Mr. Trump's long time confidante, bankruptcy lawyer and friend, to be America's next envoy in...

Canada's Brian Mulroney Is Urged To 'Rein in' President-Elect Trump

Fri, 16 Dec 2016 13:31:26 EST

A pandemic of denial over the incoming president of the United States grips his Democratic opponents, and, like most American fads and traits, is as strong in Canada as anywhere. It is now five weeks since the election, and we have watched an unprecedentedly asinine sequence of delusional activities to cushion the conventional wisdom from the impact of the result.There was the recount, where the Green candidate, who garnered one per cent of the vote in the presidential election, rounded up over...

Bitterness of Liberals Begets a Campaign To Foil Trump Voters

Thu, 15 Dec 2016 22:36:19 EST

The Electoral College is due to meet Monday, when the electors chosen on November 8 will establish Donald Trump as the winner. Then Democrats' efforts to steal the election will finally come to an end right?Don't bet on it. So bitter are American liberals that they may go down as the sorest losers since the invention of democracy. They're apt to try anything to overturn voters' decision.Certainly Election Day didn't stop them, even though the Electoral College outcome was unambiguous, a...

How Trump Could Make Quick Move to Jerusalem For U.S. Israel Embassy

Tue, 13 Dec 2016 13:59:24 EST

Could President-elect Trump be the leader who finally moves the American Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem? He promised during his campaign to implement the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995, which calls for Jerusalem to be recognized as the capital of the State of Israel and for the Embassy to be established in that city.

Welcome to the Fight: Niall Ferguson Reverses His Course on Brexit

Fri, 9 Dec 2016 17:46:45 EST

In a season when some of our greatest intellectuals are trying to figure out how to make their peace with Donald Trump, let us take a big-hearted view of the mea culpa, mea maxima culpa just issued by historian Niall Ferguson in respect of Brexit. Speaking at a forum of the Milkin Institute in London, Professor Ferguson on Tuesday gave his reasons for speaking out against an independent Britain and backing instead remaining in the European Union."It is one of the few times in my life that I've...

Vigilant American Military Is Best Way To Redeem Day of Infamy at Pearl

Tue, 6 Dec 2016 19:28:57 EST

A GI pal of mine in Vietnam went on R&R to Tokyo, where he picked up a girl in a bar and took her to the blockbuster movie about Pearl Harbor, "Tora! Tora! Tora!" When the Zeroes came roaring across the screen, my friend's date leaned her head on his shoulder."Sorry, sorry, sorry," she whispered.Prime Minister Shinzo Abe insists he's not going to do that to President Obama when, late this month, he becomes the first Japanese premier to visit Pearl Harbor. Instead, an aide says, Mr. Abe's aim...

Europe's Center-Right Poised To Claim Power In the Era of Trump

Tue, 6 Dec 2016 11:42:06 EST

As Donald Trump steadily gains in public approval by his intelligent appointments of well-qualified women and non-Caucasian people to key positions and debunks the entire Clinton-Obama campaign against him of "racist" and "sexist" defamation, recollection of that spurious campaign evaporates. His retrieval of a thousand Carrier jobs for Indiana left his opponents silent, except for the instantly camp figure of the old socialist kibbutznik Bernie Sanders, blubbering about betrayal of...

The Two-Americas Gambit Might Help Donald Trump Deal With the One China

Sun, 4 Dec 2016 18:42:18 EST

Far be it from me to suggest how President-elect Trump should handle the uproar over his taking a phone call from the president of Free China. But here's what happened when, in the early 1980s, a crisis erupted between two rising powers Communist China and the Wall Street Journal.It occurred at the start of the Reagan administration, and, as journalistic flaps go, it was a doozy.It was precipitated by a friendly message from Taiwan to Reagan, who had campaigned on, among other things, the...

More Truths Await Telling Of Castro's Crimes Ere Cuba Is Finally Free

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 18:21:11 EST

Finally, Fidel Castro has died. I had been waiting for this moment since I was a small child, for as long as I've had awareness to sense the pain and horror he represented for those around me. It would be, I always knew, one of the memorable moments of my life.Amid the whirlwind of calls, press requests, booking a flight to Miami, and packing, my daughter called and asked if I was happy. I had been letting personal calls go to voice mail, so she caught me off guard. I had to admit I was not...

Britain Itches for Freedom And a Trade Accord With Trump's America

Fri, 18 Nov 2016 08:47:04 EST

President-elect Trump is in like Flynn with America's most enduring "special relationship." For though his electoral victory is the cause of protests at home and unease at European capitals, "Mr. Brexit" basks in favorable reviews from the British government. Small wonder. Both nascent administrations swept to office on a wave of anti-establishment populism.Leading the welcoming party are Brexiteers who spearheaded efforts to take the United Kingdom out of the European Union and regain the...

As U.S., Russia Wrestle Over U.N.'s Next Leader One Option Is To Keep Ban

Mon, 3 Oct 2016 17:59:47 EST

As the race for secretary general of the United Nations heats up, here's one option that as yet is only whispered in the halls: Punt.America and Russia, the top players that will decide the race among the ten remaining declared candidates in the race to replace the current Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon of South Korea, are so divided over so many issues -- from Syria to Ukraine -- that they may well fail to agree on a candidate before December 31, when a new UN chief is supposed to take his...

British Tribune of TradeCould Steal the March On Trump's Protectionism

Sun, 2 Oct 2016 19:51:19 EST

Britain after Brexit is wasting no time announcing to the trading world it is open for business. Minister of International Trade Liam Fox speaks of free trade with an optimism that must inspire envy in America's market conservatives. Who can imagine government praising the virtues of free trade?Economic growth, Mr. Fox asserts, is supported by three pillars of market freedom. One is liberty of trade, unshackled from state interference, since "the idea that governments should restrict the right...

Battle for Heart and Mind Of Next U.S. President Erupts in the Middle East

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 15:53:39 EST

President Obama, in his address to the annual opening session of the United Nations General Assembly, said that it would be desirable for the Israelis not to develop Palestinian land (settlements) and for the Palestinians to accept the right of Israel to exist as a Jewish state. This is true, but also a truism. While everyone knows that there have been fierce ethnic, tribal, sectarian, and national disputes in the Middle East for centuries, most would not know that there has been an almost...

British Prep for Deal On Trade With Yanks In the Wake of Brexit

Tue, 20 Sep 2016 08:00:04 EST

"The British are coming." So history records Paul Revere's warning, as the Redcoats marched toward Lexington and Concord out of Boston with the shots heard round the world issuing forth the independent United States of America.Taxes and trade were the powder of that conflagration; and in post-Brexit Britain, financial well-being once again comes to the fore: this time with London seeking terms with her sometime overseas possession.In June a majority of Britons voted to cut ties with the...

New Red Line in Mideast Is a Haven for Terrorists From American Tort Law

Fri, 2 Sep 2016 05:57:14 EST

It looks like there's a new red line in the Middle East. It has been laid down by the judges who ride the second United States appeals circuit, which just let the Palestinian Authority off the hook for killing Americans.It's a stunning decision that may be the beginning of the end of a decades-long effort to use civil law to hold accountable those responsible for the murder of Americans abroad. What a bitter pill for surviving families who turned to the courts when our presidents refused to act...

In Just a Wee Bit of Irony Scots Could Be Orphaned By British Independence

Fri, 26 Aug 2016 06:22:36 EST

Here's a wee bit of irony. The decision of the British people to leave the European Union may have been seen by the Scottish elite as yet another chance for Scotland itself to secede from the United Kingdom and set up their own country, seated within the European Union. But it turns out that the scheme could run into trouble owing to Scotland's own leftist tendencies.It's the Scottish adherence to welfare state policies that may yet do them in. "To be a member of the EU you should have, except...
