FSM Oped: UN Resolution Condemning Israel: “Et tu, Barack?”

January 6th, 2017

On March 15, 44 BC, Roman emperor Julius Ceasar, surrounded by a group of 60 senators, was repeatedly stabbed. Initially resisting his assassins, a crestfallen Ceasar saw among them a good friend, Brutus Albinus.

The Blaze Oped: Tashfeen Malik’s Role Immediately Made Obama’s ‘Work Place Violence’ Theory a Lie

January 8th, 2016

One hopes during his December 18 meeting with families of the San Bernardino massacre victims (pressing vacation plans did not allow him to visit wounded victims), President Barack Obama was more forthright than in the immediate aftermath of the December 2 attack.

For 23 days during the month of October 2002, residents of the Washington D.C. area lived in utter fear.

Obama’s Attitude Towards Iran — and Israel — an Existential Danger for Both Nations

March 10th, 2015

by JAMES ZUMWALT Mar 2015 With Benjamin Netanyahu’s address to Congress to discuss Iranian nukes on March 3, one need ponder President Obama’s continuing rebukes of the Israeli Prime Minister for doing so. Listening carefully, one might hear the refrain from Shakespeare’s Hamlet, methinks the President “doth protest too much!” Unsurprisingly for Obama, in a

Palestinians Will Not Live Their Dreams as Long as Their Leaders Live Theirs

August 1st, 2014

Tehran and the Science of Pro Football

March 26th, 2014

Several years ago, NBC aired the television series “The Science of NFL Football.” One episode, entitled the “Pythagorean Theorem,” explained the math equation confronting players in certain situations where defenders zero in on stopping a ball carrier. Envision the following scenario: A

December 5th, 2013

HERNDON, Va., Dec. 3 (UPI) — Listen closely as the Obama administration touts the Nov. 24 Geneva nuclear deal struck between the P5+1 countries (the United States, Britain, France, China, Russia, plus Germany) and Iran.

A Shifting Middle East Alliance

November 27th, 2013

HERNDON, Va., Nov. 26 (UPI) — The late ventriloquist Edgar Bergen used a dummy named Mortimer Snerd, a character so dumb everything required a full explanation. Finally understanding, Mortimer would shake his head in amazement, saying “Who’d ‘a’ thunk it (possible)?”   Understanding a fascinating realignment recently taking place in the Middle East causes one to respond similarly, for
