I watched the first installment of Simon Schama’s TV production: History of the Jews. Schama started what he called the story, strangely not the history, at a period some 3,000 years ago. But that timeline was already ancient Jewish history, which essentially is nearer 4,000 years old.
That master of falsehoods, fabrications and breathtaking mendacity, Saeb Erakat, is at it again. Erakat, who is the Palestinian Authority’s chief negotiator in the delusional “peace talks” between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, has yet again made the hoary old claim that the Arabs who call themselves Palestinians are descended from the extinct Canaanites.
Basically the Monroe Doctrine, boiled down to its essential parts states that European countries should stay on their side of the pond and the US will reciprocate by staying out of their business -- and -- on our side of the pond.

Nearly four years since and the world is a much meaner place -- due mostly to the fact that there is no policeman prowling the globe.. Allow me to amend that and say the policeman may still be on the beat, at least to an extent, but he is now disarmed. That may be a better description of the current attitude of America in global affairs. The US has the weakest presidency and the weakest State Department in my memory of well over seven decades.
Some random philosophy professor from the Rochester Institute of Technology named Lawrence Torcello has decided that if you don’t agree with him on climate change, then you should be criminally prosecuted.

The stench of betrayal was evident in the House of Representatives on Thursday, March 13, 2014. Secretary of State, John Kerry, revealed utter appeasement towards the overwhelmingly Muslim Palestinian Authority and a cavalier dismissal of the legitimate rights of Israel: The Jewish state. With his own words, he can now no longer be regarded as an honest broker in the so-called “peace process.”
We know the earth is 4.5 billion years old, right? How do we know that? Radiometric dating, right? How do we know radiometric dating is an accurate method for determining the ages of rocks?« Previous Page — Next Page »
"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
