Why would an American president bow down to world leaders?   Why is it easy for politicians to stoke hatred for rich, fat-cat CEOs? And why do so many nations around the world hate America, the world’s lone superpower?  read more

Prell: People always choose the underdog, regardless of the facts
Eight years ago, “Israel Apartheid Week” began on campuses in America and around the world to show “solidarity with the Palestinian struggle” and to demonize Israel as an “Apartheid” regime.  Ten years ago, I began studying this “pro-Palestinian/anti-Israeli” phenomenon. read more

Prell: March Madness: Obama Champions One-Percenters

When Barack Obama picked his NCAA brackets, he should have done what he always does: champion the underdog, and demonize the “overdog.”  It’s March Madness, and the underdogs are running wild - everywhere except in the President’s NCAA brackets. read more

Prell: Townhall:  Kony Konservatives

A strange thing happened on the way to get Kony: the media began attacking Kony’s attackers.  Those who believe in right and wrong, good and evil, and do not want innocent people around the world to get murdered, often find themselves being viciously attacked by the media as “conservatives.” read more

***ffwd to 13:25 for a brilliant point of clarity***

Prell:  "The Perfect Candidate in 2012? You."
Are you happy with the remaining Republican candidates? 
Or the current occupant of the White House?  Or Congress? 
If your answer is “no,” don’t worry. You are not alone. In fact,
you are in the majority.  Polls show that none of the
Republican candidates can crack 50% support in a head-to-
head contest with President Obama. That is not to say the
President is doing much better: he can’t crack 50% either.
And Congress? They have a 12% approval rating and an
81.7% disapproval rating. read more

Prell:  "Thou Shall Not Covet"
Thou shall not covet your neighbor’s house, your neighbor’s
wife, not “anything that is your neighbor’s.”  Not anything.  If talk of Biblical Commandments makes you feel uncomfortable, then let’s call them “Ten Helpful Guidelines.”  On purely secular and practical grounds, is it better or worse for a society to follow the “Helpful Guideline” to not covet?  read more

Prell:  "It's (NOT) The Economy, Stupid"
What happens if the economy gets better?  If you are a Republican candidate, who has built a campaign around being a better manager of the economy, a better economy (without the benefit of your management) would spell the end of your campaign.  We can see this happening now  read more

Prell:  "Meanwhile,Outside of Iowa..."
Meanwhile, as we digest the Iowa Caucus chaos, a lot has happened outside of Iowa.  While the apocalyptic rulers of Iran finish the nuclear bomb they would use to commit a second holocaust on the Jews, President Obama was caught on a live microphone badmouthing Israel’s Prime Minister and bemoaning the fact that he has to deal with the leader of America’s last remaining ally in the Middle East. read more

Prell:  "Fair Is A Four Letter Word"
“It’s not fair” is one of the first things we say as children and one of the last things we say before we leave this world. In between, we call it: growing up.  It is time for the current occupants of the White House to grow up.
In Osawatomie, Kansas, President Obama gave the defining speech of his re-election campaign. The central theme: fairness. In that one speech, the President of the United States invoked the name of fairness fifteen times. read more

Prell:  "Crusade for Fewer People on the Earth Seeks Volunteers"
On Oct. 31, the United Nations announced the birth of Planet Earth’s 7 billionth human.  Later that day, the United Nations admitted that “no one can know the exact number of people on the globe,” noting that perhaps the 7 billionth human might be born sometime during the next four months.  In other words:  United Nations demographers pretty much know what they’re talking about, give or take about 28 million human beings.  read more
