Letter to Sen. Bennet, Reps. DeGette, Perlmutter, Polis, Tipton

At press time, Sen. Bennet, and Reps. DeGette, Polis, Tipton and Perlmutter, are undecided on the Iran deal. Here is why they should vote no.


There is a perverse advantage to witnessing atrocities up front, in person. Even the best of the witnesses will say, “then my knees went weak and I went away.”


Contempt for Congress

Since when does the UN Security Council determine the security interests of the United States? Funny. We thought that laws for the US were made by the US. Not so, it seems, under the current administration.

Take this recent nuclear deal in context — in large context. In grand context. The deal is an absolute reversal of any logical, expected, rational turn of fortune. Here is Iran, pretty st...

The last Nazi?

Oskar Gröning, 94, a former SS soldier at Auschwitz, was convicted by a German court of colluding in the mass murder of 300 Hungarian Jews and sentenced to four years in prison. Many people and news outlets, including The New York Times, are calling Gröning’s trial “to be among the last chances to bring justice for the Holocaust.” Gröning, assigned to Auschwitz from September, 1942, to October, 1944, to seize cash and valuables from arriving prisoners, is guilty.
