Ariel Sharon was a lion—albeit a rotund one—God love him; and he is missed.

Ariel Sharon was a giant of Israeli politics. More than that, he was a lion—albeit a rotund one—God love him; and he is missed.


Justice And The Law Do Not Mix

There are very serious problems that face America's system of justice and fairness for all, which demand attention. They are not easily fixable or remedied, yet they are at the tip of an enormous iceberg of problems. There is a real question as to whether our system can be “fixed.”

Justice And The Law Do Not Mix By Timothy D. Naegele[1][2] Justice is in the eye of the beholder, and not some absolute standard that is clearly and quantifiably definable or identifiable. However, human beings have a sense of what is just and what is not, which is often governed by their belief systems and […]

Russia’s Putin Is A Killer

Russia’s dictator-for-life Vladimir Putin is every bit as sinister and evil as Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler and Mao Tse-tung

Stalin and Mao were the most ruthless killers of their own people, and that is Putin’s heritage. He learned his craft well; and he must be viewed in this context, not as some Westernized Russian democrat, which he is not.

The American Legal System Is Broken: Can It Be Fixed?

There are sound reasons why so many Americans have come to despise lawyers, judges and the legal profession

Can our legal system be fixed, and will the American people come to trust and respect lawyers and judges again, and believe that justice not only exists but prevails in this great nation?

Are the United States and China on a collision course in the Western Pacific and elsewhere? Only time will tell. However, one can never forget that China’s violent past was only a short time ago, and its human rights abuses continue to this day.

Sarah And Todd Palin: The Big Winners?

Two Women May Face Off For The American Presidency In 2012, Sarah Palin And Hillary Clinton

The biggest winners in the 2010 American elections may prove to be former Vice Presidential candidate and Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, and her husband Todd. She became the darling of the Tea Party movement, which energized the moribund Republican Party and may decide its future—and that of its “establishment.” She is a force to be feared and reckoned with in Republican politics.

Is Barack Obama A Racist?

This article was originally published at NaegeleBlog on December 5, 2009

Early in the book, “Dreams from My Father,” Barack Obama was careful to point out: “I wouldn’t do anything stupid. It was usually an effective tactic, another one of those tricks I had learned: People were satisfied so long as you were courteous and smiled and made no sudden moves.” Perhaps those words encapsulate his political life, his campaign for the presidency, and how he is governing now and hopes to survive the global economic meltdown, national security challenges and growing constituent anger, while trying to change the essence of America. In the final analysis, will he be viewed by history as a racist or a healer? Time will tell.

Ronald Reagan and John F. Kennedy: A Question of Character

by Timothy D. Naegele    With the passage of time, America’s greatest presidents prior to the 21st Century are apt to be viewed as Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, Franklin Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan. Gone from that list most certainly will be John F. Kennedy. Today, few young Americans even know who he was—or care about him—because […]
