Europe Is Committing Suicide, Prager U; Also see, Europe’s Jew Hatred – And Ours, Bari Weiss, NY Times

CS Commentary: Remember, this is the ultra-liberal NY Times, so the statement that the far right and ‘some Donald Trump supporters’ are the most anti-Semitic American faction and the ‘biggest threat’ is almost laughable. We would love to see the factual information on that one, considering that BDS, CAIR, most American Jews themselves, and everyone on the radical left could be easily accused of consistent anti-Semitic statements and behavior. She also makes the asinine statement that “Islamism is far less of a threat in the United States than in Europe.” That is, unless you include that the FBI are following over 15 Muslim terrorists in every state and Hezbollah is known to have inactive cells spread around America. To her credit she admits, “We Jews are most [as, in a biased way] attuned to the anti-Semitism of the far right.” You think? Europe and America are starting to look scarily like Europe/Germany in the 1920’s and early 1930’s – due to the neo-fascism of the far-left and far-right. Anyone who has read Shirer’s The Rise And Fall Of The Third Reich, or Evan’s follow-up and updated trilogy can recognize the signs. Otherwise, an informative, enlightening article.

Carly Fiorina: The Contrary Opinion Against Tariffs (video, right), Fox Business

CS Commentary: We were Carly supporters before we were Trump supporters, and we like her. But, the present round of tariffs has no comparison to Smoot Hawley (see Top 5 Reasons for Current Market Correction). In addition, there is no ‘free trade’ currently, ‘without the tariffs’ (since Europe, China and other nations have unilaterally been putting tariffs on US products for decades). To pretend like there is, is ludicrous. Of course, the Chinese are currently at the table because our tariffs are hurting and will hurt their economy. It is hard to know where Carly is coming from with this argument – another run for President in 2020, perhaps?

The Pope Is The Problem: Francis Has Mobilized Papacy Power Against Justice, Krumholz/Delahunty, The Federalist

Quote: “For all their deference to one another, the majority of the bishops appear to be good men who are seeking to do justice. But the dark center within that silver lining is the pope who commanded them to stand down. There is a rot and a stench coming from the Vatican. The pope is the problem.”

Exclusive Poll: Most Trusted News Anchors, Jeremy Barr, Hollywood Reporter

CS Commentary: Here’s a poll that explains a lot. Americans still don’t get that trusting NBC and CNN anchors means that they are buying into leftist propaganda – not only in presentation, but in selection of the news topics. Meanwhile, Greg Gutfeld and Juan Williams at Fox News score highest in the ‘Some trust’ category. Hmm.

7 Things You Should Always Wear On A Plane, Caroline Costello, Smarter Travel

CS Commentary: Layers is one of the best tips – and always dress lighter than needed with extra layers in your carry-on. You’ll usually work up a sweat getting to the airport and your gate on time with luggage in hand. In addition, if you’re taking more than carry-ons anywhere these days, you just don’t know how to pack or travel. There is absolutely no need for the risk of checking bags, especially on long, international flights.

Quotes Of The Month:

“We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.” – Elie Wiesel, Holocaust Survivor

“Sometimes we must interfere. When human lives are endangered, when human dignity is in jeopardy, national borders and sensitivities become irrelevant. Wherever men and women are persecuted because of their race, religion, or political views, that place must – at that moment – become the center of the universe.”― Elie Wiesel, The Night Trilogy: Night, Dawn, the Accident
