The Truth Behind Megyn Kelly’s NBC Deal, Michael, Wolff, Newsweek

Common Sense Commentary: Newsweek is notoriously liberal in its view and any report must be taken with a grain of salt, but in this case perhaps a liberal report is needed for insight behind the curtains of the  media. Not completely objective, but an interesting look behind the scenes at Fox News, in particular.

Quote: “This brings us to the key concept of my approach, which is victory, or imposing one’s will on the enemy, compelling him through loss to give up his war ambitions. Wars end, the historical record shows, not through goodwill but through defeat.”

Video: An Average Black Citizen on the Chicago Kidnap and Torture: “There is a Sickness in the Black Community,” James T. Harris, Facebook

Common Sense Commentary: Must viewing. According to a 2004 NBC poll a decade later, 7 out of 10 African Americans still believed that OJ did not kill his wife. According to a CNN poll in 2014 just over 50% of blacks believed that OJ was guilty. Just short of nine out of ten African Americans voted for Barack Obama for President twice. What a white person can’t say today without inciting a riot, an insightful African-American does. Also see, Disturbing Lessons From The Chicago Beatings, Dennis Prager, Townhall

You Are The Racist – Not Me: A Jewish Settler in the West Bank Calls Out Liberal Hypocrisy and Explains the Reality, Rachel Moore, Times of Israel

Common Sense Commentary: This is a must read if you want a better understanding of the repercussions of the “Two-State Solution” and the perpetual conflict between Palestinians and Israelis, particularly as it plays out in Gaza and the West Bank.

Quote: “there is no Palestinian leadership option that will give people a voice, empower and educate women, create and build freedom for the individual. Palestinian citizens of Israel today…have access to subsidized education, universal health care, can open a business, sit on the Supreme Court, and be members of Israel’s Parliament. They can fight the system lawfully and from within and stand up in our parliament, the only democracy in the Middle East…A Palestinian [in the West Bank] can buy land and build on it. A Jew cannot. In fact, a Jew cannot travel into Palestinian controlled areas at all, without fear of lynching, beatings and murder.”
