MUNICH | A Jewish human rights organization is calling for a boycott of an Italian winemaker that sells Hitler-themed wine.
Friedrich Nietzsche famously announced the death of God more than a century ago. Scholars and sociologists alike have been trying to prove him right — or wrong — ever since. Regardless of religious affiliation, just about everyone agrees that God has been on the wane in the West for quite some time.
He may just be a footnote to history, but Dr. Isachar Zacharie is having a posthumous mini-moment, thanks to the Hollywood-sparked surge of interest in the presidency of Abraham Lincoln.
Of the explanations for the conservative defeat in 2012, the most disturbing one is that the Republican base is shrinking, consigning us to permanent minority status.
With the "fiscal cliff" looming, Washington is looking under every rock for new forms of "revenue."
Two decades after the collapse of the Soviet Union, the ideas of Marx and Lenin are making a comeback in Russia with a wave of young leftists whose potential for mass appeal seems to have rattled the Kremlin.
The Republican and Democratic national conventions have the country thinking about the state of our increasingly socialistic government. Britain's Iron Lady, Margaret Thatcher, hit the bull's-eye when she said, "The trouble with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money." She, like the truth, rocks.
Chief Political Correctness High Priestess Diane Rehm, with one of her often-biased radio panel discussions, recently carried this ancient back to the late 1930s' Great Debate, framed as "isolationism" vs. "interventionism" in foreign policy. (Full disclosure: I was a teen-age member of William Allen White's Committee for Defending America by Aiding the Allies.

President Hugo Chavez has spent much of his career praising the socialist ideas of famed atheists such as Karl Marx and Fidel Castro.
"Environmentalist activists are dogmatic, ideological radicals hell-bent on transforming society into a colossal, highly regulated, redistributive commune void of inalienable rights. Their lack of integrity enables them to look you straight in the eye and lie about the facts." Brian Sussman, veteran meteorologist-turned-KSFO-talk-radio-host in San Francisco, pulls no punches in his new expose, "Eco-Tyranny: How the Left's Green Agenda Will Dismantle America."
The only thing "new" in North Korea's new year is that their hell is under new management. "The great leader," Kim Jong-il, has been replaced by Kim Jong-un, "the great successor," but the state that causes incomprehensible misery for its unfortunate inhabitants continues tyrannically along.
In his State of the Union address Tuesday night, President Obama stressed "economic fairness" ("Obama calls for taxes, investments," Web, Tuesday). Sounds really humane, right?
With each passing day, it becomes more obvious that the Occupy Wall Street gatherings so beloved by the liberal mainstream media are a phenomenon Karl Marx might have describe as a natural byproduct of "decadent" capitalist societies under economic stress.
"We just want to gather signatures showing that the American people are behind Obama and Karl Marx," he said as one man signed away feverishly.
"Show support for Obama and his Communist agenda," he said to one signee who has happy to oblige. "Sign here to support the Marxist takeover."
