Convergence of US-Israel national security interests

In 2017, the national security interests of the US and Israel have converged, in an unprecedented manner, in response to the anti-US Arab Tsunami; anti-US Islamic terrorism; the declining European posture of deterrence; drastic cuts in the US defense budget; an increasingly unpredictable, dangerous globe; Israel’s surge of military and commercial capabilities and US-Israel shared values.

Kebek, an on-going problem

Kebek is an on-going problem for English-speaking Canada and a nightmare for the future.

To understand my reasoning for making the above statement, we must first go back in time and look at a similar period in past history that might give us a clue as to why this is happening and the reasons for it in the present context.

The Once Great but now Rogue State of America

I recently got into a fight with one of my nephew’s Facebook friends. Nephew had posted a couple of news articles about North Korea which had been written by different people.

These articles indicated that life for North Korean’s is not actually what has been portrayed to us in the media. (As if the Media and Politicians would lie!)

The terror of an American Policy based on Orwell’s “1984”

1984, was a good year for me. At least those parts I can still remember. I was a healthy 34 years old and working my way up the American Dream by owning multiple businesses with my wife and watching my beautiful daughter grow ever more beautiful. Ronald Reagan was our president and even though I was not a big fan I had faith in the man who was Governor of California and has an overwhelmingly positive charisma that had people have a positive view on the future of their nation and family.

Learning HOW to read : Media Triggers

This article is primarily focused on the topic of how to read the news.

I doubt that many people today would consider themselves to be illiterate but in reality many people are effectively illiterate because they don’t know “HOW” to read and analyze the news.

And then I stopped. Why? Because I actually do know “HOW” to read and I realized that almost every headline was misleading¹ and every article devoid of anything approaching relevancy. In short, I realized that I would not learn anything from the reading. Let me explain.

The Most Taxing Time of the Year

How does tax season make you feel? Angry? Tired? Probably both, but there’s a good chance you also felt a bit confused while preparing your returns.

We Love to Hate Our Presidents

This politically incorrect article by John J. Walsh (pseudonym) was originally published on April 21st, 2010 at Magic City Morning Star News and republished at Kingscalendar under the same title as today’s version and can be found as the 4th of four articles on this linked page. In light of all that has gone on and is going on in the USA since the election of Donald Trump, I think that this little bit of humor needs to be revisited and taken a little bit more seriously — R.P.
