Snowden Still A Traitor, Now Talks Like a Loser Too

“I would love to go back and face a fair trial, but unfortunately … there is no fair trial available, on offer right now,” Snowden told the Canadian media. Who does this fellow think he is? He’s been in Russia one day too many. He is starting to sound like a RT (Russia Television) correspondent. …

Losers Never Set the Terms of Surrender, But Cuba Is Trying

The Cuban Communist Party is a recalcitrant lot. Cuba is an economic basket case, broke. And it is about to get a lot more in the red. Meanwhile the majority of its population is disheartened and hungry. Castro, Machado-Ventura, Colomé Ibarra, Díaz-Canel Bermúdez, indeed mostly the entire Central Committee, is in denial. The upper echelons of the Communist Party still clings to something …

According to the Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security press release posted earlier this week: Wind River Systems of Alameda, Calif., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Intel Corporation, has agreed to …

The Staging of Constitutional Crisis

I find it somewhat amusing, and at some level disconcerting, that the President took to, of all things … Facebook … to announce that he is about to force a political conflict with a majority of the American people over the issue of immigration. Facebook shareholders, and amnesty supporter Mort Zuckerberg, must be pleased. The President will smooth …

Two-State Solution, A Cruel Diplomatic Tool

Three Americans were killed by radical Islamists yesterday. The media coverage and official U.S. responses, frankly, has been the equivalent of political tumbleweed. The synagogue attack by axe-wielding Palestinian terrorists, cheered by radical Islamists everywhere (possibly even some right here in the United States), condoned by Hamas, and, of course, ignored by the Left, is yet …
