Two term County Executive Rob Astorino’s big message is that he has not raised taxes in Westchester County. But what is questionable about this message is the method. Last November, Astorino announced a proposal to develop and privatize Westchester County Airport with Oaktree Capital Management LP, a company who specializes in distressed properties. This proposal was announced without seeking out …

Why Poland?

I grew up in a home that was hardly pro-Polish. Poland was seen as a country where anti-Semitism was historically widespread and, at times, lethal. So, how did I go from such a home to leading a global Jewish organization in the forefront of writing a new chapter in Polish-Jewish relations? And how would my family feel about the fact …

Wednesday, March 8, 2017, was International Women’s Day. Many women across the globe participated in organized events. But did the vast majority of women and corporate sponsors understand the dark history of this event? In this article that first appeared at The American Spectator, Dr. Paul Kengor offers a look at the timeline of International Women’s Day from its beginning in 1909 to present day.

As we complete the first month of the misbegotten Trump Era , we had better take stock of his handiwork while the nation still can effectively deal with it. . The long term history of experiments in democratic self-governments for areas larger than clan domains is not encouraging. Historians warn that the brilliance of founders runs dim and tends to …

  To those who lived through that era that tore us apart in the ’60s and ’70s, it is starting to look like “deja vu all over again.” And as Adlai Stevenson, Bobby Kennedy and Hubert Humphrey did then, Democrats today like Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi are pandering to the hell-raisers, hoping to ride their energy to victory. Democrats …

Trump’s Immigration Order and Christanity
By PETER AHERN

Hezi Aris Governance, History, House of Worship, International, Op-Ed, Politics Leave a Comment

Debate has raged since President Donald Trump announced his executive order temporarily banning entry to the United States of residents from seven Muslim-majority countries. This involves a temporary halt in the United States refugee program. When it resumes, Christian and other non-Muslim minority groups stand to gain significantly. This represents a stark turnaround from the Obama administration’s increasingly liberal approach …

An amazing week of Trump’s first days in power created a combination of more extreme downs and ups than in at least the last thirteen presidencies. It seems our nation has survived, if only as his bold and totalitarian decrees have been, at least partially, been blocked by more competent authorities and massive public protests around the country. Half way …
