Following a brutal terror attack at the Temple Mount, the Israeli government installed metal detectors at the gates used by Palestinian Muslims to prevent future attacks. The Temple Mount is the third holiest site in Islam, but it is the holiest site in Judaism. Yet, Jews and tourists alike must go through metal detectors before entering the site. Established after the liberation of Jerusalem in 1967, the status quo is absurdly one-sided against Jews, and constitutes control over the Temple Mount by the Muslim Waqf. The Waqf forbids Jews from praying there, and they have Jews arrested at the...Read More

On Sunday, the Christian Sabbath of all days, ABC political analyst Matthew Dowd made a truly asinine statement on Twitter about Christianity. I am Catholic. Being Christian is a state of being. Practicing love. Some of the most Christian folks i know in life are atheists. — Matthew Dowd (@matthewjdowd) July 16, 2017 The belief in God, and a good and all-powerful God, is a fundamental pillar of the Judeo-Christian tradition. This fact is so obvious, and this tweet so intensely stupid, that it is truly painful to have to explain it. Suggesting that “being Christian is a state...Read More
On Sunday, the New York Times released a bombshell report which revealed that Donald Trump Jr. met with a Russian lawyer with Kremlin connections shortly after Trump won the Republican nomination. He intended to receive information to damage the Clinton campaign. The NYT followed up with another report on Monday night, that claimed Trump Jr. knew the information originally came from the Russian government, and that the Russians were trying to help the campaign. This report is certainly ethically damning to the Trump campaign, especially because they had a whole lot of time to reveal this meeting over the last several months. It makes it...Read More
Last week, the Senate was supposed to vote on the healthcare bill. But Majority Leader Mitch McConnell delayed it until after the July 4th recess. The vote on this bill is massively important for the future of our nation’s healthcare. It is possibly the most influential piece of legislation on the healthcare system since LBJ’s Great Society initiative in the 1960s, when the Medicaid and Medicare programs were created. The Trumpcare vote is not merely a vote between Obamacare and Obamacare lite. This vote is, realistically, a vote on single payer healthcare. And believe it or not, those in favor of...Read More
Last Saturday, three Jewish individuals were were thrown out of the annual Chicago LGBT march. What was their crime? They carried a LGBT pride flag with a Jewish star on it. The left rejected Jews because they were proud of their identities. The flag apparently made other people “unsafe,” and the three Jews were harassed before being told to leave. One of the Jews thrown out of the march said “[she] felt that, as a Jew, [she] [was] not welcome [there].” The march’s organizers, however, did not apologize for the anti-Semitic harassment. They told the LGBT newspaper The Windy Times that the event was “anti-Zionist” and...Read More
