Heart of Darkness: Fox News Accused Of Malevolent Spying and Harassment On Andrea Tantaros

I can’t cover but a fraction of what passes across my screen or consciousness at The Truth Barrier, but I want to publicly support the women who are exposing the dark underbelly of Fox News. Is it “biased” to state that you “believe every word of it?” No. I don’t think so. I’m well seasoned in […]

Macron and Le Pen: At Least Know This

“At Least Know This,” was a concept my father and I hatched together about 20 years ago, but never “developed.”  I would (and still do) often ask my father–who I did not grow up with– sweeping questions, mostly about World War 2, which he began following closely by short wave radio as a boy in […]

I walked into my (Jewish) father’s bedroom, where he and his wife were sitting up in bed, watching the news, last night. I had just come from Thursday Night mass, and felt overcome with emotion. I don’t write any of this to alienate or “trigger” any of my atheist readers. I told them I have […]
