The Reach of George Soros

Posted on | May 22, 2019 | No Comments

Eight U.S. journalists have been fired for a TV program critical of George Soros. Was it justified or a Stalinist hit?

Soros is a large, inviting target. No other American billionaire has put as much time and money into influencing politics both in the U.S. and abroad. He says it’s democracy building. His critics call it radically destructive. Read more

Fast and Furious Revisited

Posted on | May 14, 2019 | No Comments

During this “Constitutional Crisis” it’s worth recalling a similar episode a decade ago when the U.S. Government sold 2,000 guns to Mexican drug cartels in a project known as Fast and Furious. We still don’t know why. Read more

America’s Greatest Threat

Posted on | May 9, 2019 | No Comments

The greatest threat to America is finally getting some attention. State legislators in Ohio are urging the U.S. Government to designate Mexican drug cartels as foreign terrorist organizations, which would enhance the powers to be used against them. They’re currently responsible for almost all the opiates now flooding the U.S. and poisoning the population. People take these drugs of their own free will, but the cartels see that a substantial supply is always on hand. Read more

From Tajikistan to Mexico

Posted on | April 30, 2019 | No Comments

Paul Biya has been President of Cameroon for 42 years. Ali Khamenei has been Supreme Leader of Iran for 36 years. Denis Sassou Nguesso has ruled the Republic of the Congo for 33 years.

That makes Emomali Rahmon something of a youngster. He has been in charge of post-Communist Tajikistan for a mere 27 years, though he has made up for lack of time on the job with exceptional dedication to it. No one doubts who is in charge of Tajikistan — the smallest, poorest and most mountainous of the five republics of Central Asia, once part of the Soviet Union, now on their own. Read more

The Beaver Rage

Posted on | April 23, 2019 | No Comments

Fashions change, thanks goodness. In 18th century London, no self-respecting gentleman would have been without his beaver hat, a much admired fur that also went into various articles of clothing and blankets. Given the profits involved, many adventurous Englishmen headed for the American West in search of this valuable prey, at the same time contributing to and sometimes leading the continental expansion.

The Katyn Lie

Posted on | April 16, 2019 | 1 Comment

War is death to the truth. Any plausible lie will do to advance the cause of one side or the other. An example is the Soviet execution of some 22 thousand Polish officers at Katyn forest as it cemented its rule following the 1939 pact with Nazi Germany – one after another shot in the back of the head and pushed into a mass grave. But we didn’t do it, claimed the Communists. The Nazis did. And for many years later, they were generally believed. Read more

Osceola of Florida

Posted on | April 10, 2019 | 1 Comment

No trouble knowing who is honored at the Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial. But what about Osceola Street in Stuart, Florida? I asked some passersby if they could identify the man whose name is attached to a main avenue in the town. One after another couldn’t until a woman suggested, “Maybe an Indian.” Read more
