We vote not just for a President, but for a presidency. Particularly for voters concerned about Mideast policy, it’s hard to argue with the accomplishments—too many of which we already take for granted. You might (grudgingly) concede that this presidency has been, by-and-large, a success.
A worthwhile, entertaining, and original take on White House dynamics. Troy demonstrates that Trump administration internal battles are not out of the ordinary. That is true; but what is unprecedented is the the undermining not of fellow aides, but of the president himself.Continue reading →
If an organization slaps a “kosher” label on pork, that label hardly makes the pork kosher as commonly understood. Currently, more than half of congressional Democrats carry J Street’s “pro-Israel” kosher certification.
What shall it profit a party if it shall gain the whole world, and lose its own soul? Is winning worth the price of electing radical, Israel-hostile candidates who automatically become Democratic leaders and rising stars?
It’s bad enough that the blood of American and Israeli victims of Palestinian terror is cheap; it is outrageous that it is subsidized. Including by the U.S. government. Isn’t it time to put a stop to this most obscene use of American tax dollars?

Media hysteria aside, election fraud is real and has consequences. So does the failure to stand up to it. Furthermore, those WikiLeaks emails shed further light on what a Hillary Clinton administration would mean for Israel. And it is ominous.
There are monumental issues confronting America in terms of national security, foreign policy, the economy, and the corruption and politicization of the IRS, FBI and Justice Department. Hillary is more problem than solution to every one of these issues. If I have to hold my nose over some of Trump’s actions to vote against her, so be it; too much else is at stake.
Donald Trump may not be everyone’s cup of tea. But considering his far more solidly pro-Israel team, Republican commitment to repeal FATCA, Democratic unreliability towards Israel and Hillary’s deplorable Israel record (beyond her words), it’s not a close call.
Israel’s incredible rescue of hostages from the middle of the African continent highlights just how incredible America’s non-rescue of its CIA and Foreign Service officers in Benghazi was, letting them die on their own without making any attempt to save them.
