US Exit From UN Will Leave Israel in the Cold

Calls for the United States to withdraw from the United Nations are intensifying, but a US exit may have an unintentional impact on Israel.

With the US out of the United Nations, resolutions hostile to the tiny nation would pass with ease; the tiny nation would no doubt be bombarded, harassed, and harangued without restraint; Israel would be left out in winter’s chill.

Though the United Nations may be loathed by many Americans, a voice of moderation, restraint, and common sense must remain in the international body. The US must use its considerable influence ($) to reshape the body, restore sanity, and get the organization back on track. And it must continue to be a buffer between Israel and those perpetually angry with it.

Blue Angels Pilot Killed in Crash

WKRN had excellent coverage today about the crash. I am disappointed however that the Media felt it necessary to release the pilot’s name before the next-of-kin notification process was completed.

Our heartfelt condolences go out to the pilot’s family and friends. God bless you sir as you soar away on Angels wings.

Update 6/3/16: The Navy has identified the pilot as “Capt. Jeff Kuss, 32, of Durango, Co.” More details including a bio can be found at

Does Donald Trump Make Sense For America?

Barring a catastrophe, it looks like Donald Trump will most probably be the Republican nominee for President of the United States.

Can he make America great again or at least get the country functional enough to provide a future for its children?

The far Left and Right

Donald Trump won’t make the far Left happy nor will he make the far Right happy, but he does seem to have enough in him for both camps and people in the middle to be contented.

Getting things done

Donald Trump has the confidence, know how, networks, influence, and money to get things done. Entrenched Republicans and Democrats will not be happy, but they’ll work with him. Oh yeah, they’ll work with him.

Can Trump actually do it?

America’s career politicians have done nothing but destroy a great country. Perhaps it’s time to give someone like Trump a chance to succeed where others have failed.
