    By Dennis Prager

    November 20, 2013 | 3:05 pm

    Some observations:

  • What do Bush and Pew have in common?

    November 12, 2013 | 4:02 pm

    I am often asked if Jews for Jesus missionaries are still a problem. Since most people don’t see them handing out religious tracts on street corners and college campuses, the way they did in the 70’s and 80’s, they assume that they are no longer a concern.

    May 14, 2013 | 10:05 am

    The Obama administration has in recent weeks suffered a 1-2-3 scandal outbreak:

  • Obama or Romney?

    By Rob Eshman

    November 1, 2012 | 2:32 pm

    Either way, you’re going to have to suck it up.

    One of President Obama’s many mistakes when it comes to Israel was his ‎insistence on being the anti-Bush whenever possible. It was a mistake he ‎could have avoided, a decision against which he was advised by some of his ‎smarter advisors. President Bush didn’t leave office...
