Time to Destroy the Drug Cartels

Posted on | November 7, 2019 | 1 Comment

It was inevitable. As Mexico’s appalling crime edged closer to the U.S. border, it finally struck Americans – three women and six children, including two eight-month-old twins, on their way to a wedding not far from the border. Shot and burned to death in their cars, the victims evoked horror in the U.S. But in Mexico, unfortunately, it was an all-too-familiar event with murders about to set a record this year. Read more

Mexico’s Rulers Show Who’s Boss

While the U.S. Government and media are fixated on a narrow strip of land in northern Syria, they strangely ignore the violent tumult much closer to home just across the southern border where drug cartels continue to destroy Mexico and poison America. This is not news? Read more

Saving the Pelican Cafe

Posted on | October 29, 2019 | No Comments

“Mom and pop perfection”… “Old Florida ambiance”… “a little piece of paradise.”  The Floridians assembled at the commissioners meeting in the coastal town of Stuart couldn’t be clearer. The Pelican Cafe is dear to them and must continue into the indefinite future, a treasure of the sunshine state that is hard to find elsewhere amid the speedy, haphazard development of a region that offers a respite from northern chill even if punctuated by the occasional hurricane.

In the frenzy of the Presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton singled out a Democratic candidate for a special attack:

“She’s the favorite of the Russians. I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’re grooming her to be the third party candidate.” With the vote split, that would likely throw the election to Republican Donald Trump. Read more

Feeding Grand Bahama

Hurricane Dorian tore apart much of Grand Bahama, but amid the destruction a vital community spirit has arisen that seems to overcome ruined homes and businesses. Much of this is apparent in the World Central Kitchen that provides some 12 thousand meals a day to needy island residents – not routine fare but the inspirations of gourmet chef Jose Andres, who wants his non-paying customers to eat well even if they dine in the forlorn shells of their former homes. The mission of this one kitchen is to substitute for the many destroyed. Read more

Why War?

Posted on | September 25, 2019 | No Comments

How much U.S. intervention overseas is too much? The results to date are not encouraging with more chaos in Iraq, Syria, Libya and Afghanistan in the aftermath of U.S. military involvement. Now the attack on Saudi oil facilities in the bitter four-year war with Yemen threatens to embroil the U.S. in yet another questionable intervention. Read more

Here Comes Election 2020

Posted on | August 27, 2019 | 2 Comments

With a bang in the case of President Trump, who has plowed with his usual gusto into the nervous topic of anti-Semitism by attacking the two young Muslim U.S. Congresswomen and accusing Jews who vote Democratic as being anti-Semitic. This arouses the usual name calling, but Trump makes a political calculation. If he can knock off a chunk of the Jewish vote, which is heavily Democratic, he might prevail in some close states that assure his reelection. Read more
