That title ought to get your attention in a hurry, don’t you agree?

China embraces the worst tropes of sci-fi dystopias with ‘social credit score’ system

China embraces the worst tropes of sci-fi dystopias with 'social credit score' system
Maybe you saw it in a creepy episode of Black Mirror called “Nosedive.”  Perhaps you remember it from a hilarious episode of Community called “App Development and Condiments.” It’s also appeared in various novel and comic book plots.  It’s the idea that everyone can (or must) use an app to rate anything and everyone - then those rating scores are used to limit your access to real-word privileges.

Israel’s public diplomacy would be greatly served by the production of historical movies

Israel's public diplomacy would be greatly served by the production of historical movies
PM Netanyahu recently said:

“We are in the midst of a great struggle being waged against the State of Israel, an international campaign to blacken its name. It is not connected to our actions; it is connected to our very existence,”

The Gas Deal with Egypt: Israel Deepens its Anchor in the Eastern Mediterranean

The Gas Deal with Egypt: Israel Deepens its Anchor in the Eastern Mediterranean
On February 19, 2018, the gas partnerships in Israel announced a $15 billion contract to export 64 billion cubic meters of natural gas to Egypt over ten years. The contract, between the owners of the Tamar and Leviathan fields and the Egyptian Dolphinus Holding, is based on a memorandum of understanding from October 2014. Presumably the government of Israel played an important role in securing this deal, by promoting it with the Egyptian government and possibly also by covering the guarantees required from Dolphinus for its approval.

Keeping Dissidents Busy

Hubertus Knabe: The dark secrets of a Surveillance State
Latif Yahia, Uday Hussein’s former body double reminisced that his imposed “employer” promised him and other torture victims to make them “happy”. No matter the continent or regime, political dissidents remember (and still hear…) an equally sickening threat: “We will keep you busy”.

Russia Collusion Inquisition is French Dreyfus Affair in Reverse
The currently unfolding FBI special prosecutor investigation into the alleged collusion of Pres. Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign with Russia is a replay of the Dreyfus Affair that gripped France from 1894 to 1905, only reversing the roles of opposing parties.

Israel, Trump and United Nations should boycott Abbas and PLO
Israel’s Prime Minister—Benjamin Netanyahu—has used his address to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC)—to savage the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) policy that rewards Palestinian murderers of Israelis and other innocent civilians with lifetime payments.

Little Rocket Man’s Great Big Summit Scam

Little Rocket Man's Great Big Summit Scam
When President Trump tipped reporters to expect a big announcement Thursday evening on North Korea, I joked to a friend that this could only amount to good news in the unlikely event that North Korean tyrant Kim Jong Un had just sent Trump a note saying “Help! I want to defect!”


Politicide: The attempted murder of the Jewish state by Victor Sharpe

Politicide: The attempted murder of the Jewish state by Victor Sharpe
The word Politicide was first coined by Abba Eban—Israel’s foreign minister in 1967—to describe the attempted murder of the sovereign, independent State of Israel by enemies both within and outside of the fledgling state.

When Victor Sharpe first read the word, he told me how it resonated in “the deepest parts of my heart and soul.”

Delaying the Release of Fifth-Generation Fighter Planes to the Arab States

Delaying the Release of Fifth-Generation Fighter Planes to the Arab States
Israel’s aerial superiority remains a key component of its qualitative military edge in the region. Israel’s airpower is central to its image and deterrent ability: it protects the country’s airspace, provides the first and multi-arena response to both immediate and more distant threats, enables retaliation and retribution missions for attacks on Israel, and plays a central role in managing military operations on various fronts.

New York Times super-impressed by Bowl Cut Jr.‘s big diplomatic debut

New York Times super-impressed by Bowl Cut Jr.'s big diplomatic debut
Did you think the media would retreat and do some serious soul-searching after they embarrassed themselves at the Olympics by slobbering all over the sister of North Korean tyrant Kim Jong Un? Did you think they would step back, take a look at what they’d done, and realize how wrong they’d been to glamourize a woman who was complicit in the mass murder and torture of thousands - and the complete oppression and de facto imprisonment of millions?

South Africa’s new leftist parliament votes to take property from whites and give it to blacks . . .

South Africa's new leftist parliament votes to take property from whites and give it to blacks . . . with no compensation
There are lefties, social justice warriors and woke types celebrating this on social media, but then you’d expect that. The left isn’t big on property rights, and it’s very fashionable these days to hate on white people just for being white. Toss in the fact that a lot of this land was obtained under a genuinely racist and evil system, and you can see how there’d be the impulse to want to just take it away from them out of sheer revenge.

The Counterfeit Pal-Arabs

The Counterfeit Pal-Arabs
So the Holocaust denying head of Terror, Inc, known as the Palestinian Authority, one Mahmoud Abbas, upped his erstwhile mentor and arch terrorist, Yasser Arafat, by spewing yet another Arabian Nights hallucinatory diatribe at the United Nations Security Council. It went as follows:

“We are the descendants of the Canaanites that lived in the land of Palestine 5,000 years ago and continuously remained there to this day.”

Iran to U.S.: Hey, how about you give up your nuclear weapons?

Iran to U.S.: Hey, how about you give up your nuclear weapons?
As insane as this is, there will be Americans who act like they have a point. I wouldn’t be surprised if John Kerry is one of them. In fact, I’d be surprised if he’s not.

The idea of nuclear nonproliferation is to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons so as not to see them get in the hands of fanatics who might use them to, oh, say, wipe Israel off the face of the Earth - which the mad mullahs of Iran have actually threatened to do.

We deep-sixed the Euro-blah-blah…the empty doubletalk. We sent the muzzle back to Brussels [headquarters of the EU] and the leash to the IMF.

We understand that the organizations of George Soros are not only nestled in Brussels and Budapest, but in New York at the UN.

Thumbing nose at China, U.S. pursues travel deal with Taiwan

Thumbing nose at China, U.S. pursues travel deal with Taiwan
U.S. presidents have been historically terrified of upsetting the communist Chinese by making even the slightest move favorable to Taiwan. When Donald Trump was president-elect and he dared to call the premier of Taiwan, it caused a huge uproar - mainly among Beltway types who were miffed that this sort of thing just isn’t done.
