What Is Martorano Talking About?

As Ronald Reagan once started a debate with, “Well, there you go again,” Jim Martorano, in his May 4 column, “Resist Hate,” writes: “The needless invasion of Iraq by President George Bush was perhaps the most disastrous foreign policy blunder in our history and fed into the narrative that we were against all Muslims...It is estimated this one act turned the number of self-proclaimed anti-west radicals from a few hundred to many thousands.” Just where do you get this idea from?

First of all, we had the backing of most of the civilized world. That world included your heroine, Hillary Clinton, to name just one. You are being quite naive if you think even at that time, there were only a few hundred “anti-west radicals.” Now on to your statement that the travel ban caused the following: “As result of his actions, President Trump, the efforts of mainstream Muslim leaders to convince that the west really isn’t against them was dealt a severe blow.” First of all, who are these people and how come you don’t hear about them? I will tell you why, they are non-existent. I ask the readers to think about the names of these so called mainstream Muslim leaders. Can you name them? Why are they silent while these lowlifes continue to kill innocent people in the name of Allah and Mohamed? There is no coexistence with them. Show me where they, in history, have coexisted with anyone.

In my humble opinion, Mr. Martorano, you need to wake up and look around and see what is happening all over the world. We are in the middle of the second coming of the Crusades and this time it is for keeps. It will be even more devastating than the first and this time the good guys may lose.

Here's What You Missed Last Week

Last week, the Daily News ran a headline, “When is our father coming home?” This dealt with a person here illegally, married to an American woman with a family, who was arrested at an Army base while delivering pizza. You are supposed to think that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), under Trump, is tearing families apart. As usual, it was a crock of cow pies. It was ...

Remembering Bobby Kennedy

I’m not the type of person who is prone to hero worship. Witnessing people screaming hysterically during rock concerts never sat well with me. Yes, I did see many a great group (the Rolling Stones, Simon & Garfunkel, the Who, the Doors), yet my demeanor was always one reflecting inner peace rather than extreme exuberance.

I was offered tickets to Woodstock (yes, originally you needed ...

I Come from the Land Down Under

I know this is a family column, so I’m going to put this in as delicate terms as possible.

This morning I woke up and I knew, as sure as the sun shines over Bora Bora, that something was very, very wrong in that place in my body where the Bora Bora sun doesn’t shine.

It’s that place I used to refer to my daughter as her hoo-hoo. But it certainly wasn’t a happy ...

Andy’s at It Again

June 13, 2018

A couple of years ago, I wrote to question why Andy wasn’t citing his sources when he flings dirt at any Democrat he wants to malign.

Well, he’s at it again. In the latest iteration, he tells us that Obama was responsible for putting a spy in the Trump campaign. He then repeats himself three more times to emphasize his point, but gives no proof or evidence to back up the ...
