Trump Scary, but He’s Not Hitler

Bob GelfandNewsLeave a Comment

Gelfand’s World –A little more than a year ago, mere weeks after the election of Donald Trump, Timothy Snyder published his best-selling book On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century. It was a sobering look at how other western democracies had failed under the onslaught of totalitarian stress. Would the United States go down the path towards something resembling … Read More

Is this a ‘sanctuary city’?

Stick ‘em up. This is what Culver City told law enforcement – here and in Washington. Law-obeying residents of Culver City hope this is the year their favorite community surrenders its demeaning status as a disreputable outlaw “sanctuary city.” In spite of the tragically misplaced compassion at its roots, hosting gangs of peoples who sneaked into our country when no … Read More

I Am Holding It All Together with (Flex) Tape

Robert EbsenBreaking News, NewsLeave a Comment

You have likely seen the infomercial. It is called Flex Tape. Not only waterproof, it sticks to anything. The instructions tell you not to try to remove it. You won’t be able to. The infomercial shows the tape being slapped on, and successfully sealing, a leaky pipe, a hole in a bucket full of water, and a divided motorboat, which … Read More

Tracing History of Black Families — Behind a Blindfold

Ms. Cauley

“How America Destroys Black Families.” When The New York Times posted an essay under that headline the other day, I did what was intended. I allowed myself to be lured inside. Surely I will gain insights into – whatever. When I see an unfamiliar byline, I go directly to the typically slender identification lines at the end. I should have … Read More

Is There a Trace(y) of Truth in ‘Reporter’ Wilkinson?

Ari L. NoonanNewsLeave a Comment

Ms. Wilkinson

Tracy Wilkinson of the Los Angeles Times has less tolerance for Jews than she does twin disease-bearing beetles inching up both arms. A zealously undisciplined arch-leftist, Ms. Wilkinson is as subtle as a belching cannon. Formerly head of the Times’s Jerusalem bureau, a ludicrous matchup, she showers every report on Israel with her vile hatred of Jews, carefully shading truths. … Read More

Mr. Clarke

Disappointingly, City Councilman Jim Clarke will have to wait one more time, until the Jan. 22 meeting, to probingly debate precise placements of Culver City’s three much anticipated/feared retail recreational cannabis stores. The only sexy, cannabis-related topic on Monday evening’s 7 o’clock agenda is not expected (?) to stir much opposition: A resolution to access state and federal criminal histories … Read More

Robert EbsenBreaking News, NewsLeave a Comment

Let’s talk about Fudgsicles. If you’re as old as I am, you probably ate fudgsicles when you were a kid. How about Creamsicles? How about Good Humor ice cream? How about Bungalow bar? Fudgsicles appeared in 1946, when I was six years old. I must have eaten them  until beginning high school eight years later. How did fudgsicles come back … Read More

Dateline Jerusalem – My 15½-hour non-stop flight from Tel Aviv to Los Angeles was uneventful, actually pleasant.  But when I arrived, I did not have Wifi access at first and things went downhill from there when trying to figure out what I was doing. Arriving days before Chanukah, I found most people celebrate by lighting colorful Chanukah candles and eating … Read More
