blog preview image by Richard Kostelanetz Piecing together bits drawn from various sources, I gather that some white supremacist group got a permit to stage a demonstration. Once this was granted, the remnant of Black Lives Matter decided, along with allied gangs, to mobilize a counter demonstration. This setup ...Read More...

Where "higher payments" made illegal, because, say, "un-American," as indeed a two-tier system would be, the result would be a ...Read More...

blog preview image by Richard Kostelanetz Doubly pained I am to see Hillary Clinton’s supporters flailing around to uncover one or another discreditable reason for her losing the last presidential election, because most of them are patently fictitious. For instance, while some Russians might have made devious moves ...Read More...

by Richard Kostelanetz   Local radio told me today that the Washington Post, increasingly more dubious in its anti-Trump hysteria, reports that Obama last summer told Trump to tell Putin to stop interfering in the forthcoming election. The glib conclusion is that Trump must have acknowledged, ...Read More...

blog preview image by Richard Kostelanetz Antifa in Berlin Horrifying it is to hear protestors in America identify Trump as “fascist,” since in 1932 Germany the mob in the streets were Nazis, who having failed in the free election, wanted to overthrow the legitimate government. To placate these mobs, duly elected ...Read More...

blog preview image by Richard Kostelanetz So hysterically anti-Trump has not only the NPR network but my local station become that, after a few minutes, I turn away. Whatever “news” can be interpreted to indicate Trump’s incompetence or failure is featured, no matter how dubious the “explanation.” I’m waiting for ...Read More...

by Richard Kostelanetz One of the unfortunate truths to emerge in the wake of the recent presidential election is that “intellectuals” who take pride in understanding people and cultures not their own can’t understand how any American voted for Donald Trump. Not a clue. The truth is that their smug ...Read More...

blog preview image by Richard Kostelanetz Does anyone really believe that Putin, et al, preferred Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton? They’d done biz with her while Trump seemed not only unfamiliar but unpredictable, as indeed he’s been. They’d learned that her judgments could be purchased. I’d sooner accept ...Read More...

blog preview image by Richard Kostelanetz James Hodgkinson Since the allegiances of the man who attempted to shoot Rep. Steve Scalese are known, why don’t anti-gun fanatics advocate disarming all supporters in America of Bernie Sanders. No one doubts who the shooter was, where he’d been, or what he did. If ...Read More...

On the other side of the border, whether in Syria or Jordan, land with the same qualities is barren, simply because the people residing there can’t ...Read More...

blog preview image by Richard Kostelanetz Having received from the National Endowment for the Arts the whopping sum of ten (yes, ten) individual grants between 1976 and 1991, I feel a certain obligation to give back, as we say.

blog preview image by Richard Kostelanetz Rarely is a photograph worth a thousand words, but one that knocked me out several years ago showed Fidel Castro, visibly aged, clutching a copy of a new book in English by none other than Alan Greenspan.

As I first read about it in a neo-conservatives’ magazine, I thought it might have been invented by them--that they exploited some obscure advocate into order to embarrass liberals and Democrats whom the ...Read More...

For a while now, I’ve been receiving their daily quintuple aggregates from many sources without thinking much about them. The most peculiar bits approvingly report protests within Israel or anti-Israel protests on behalf of Palestinians in Western Europe without noticing that such anti-government protests ...Read More...
