In 2018, the streaming service paid almost $80 million to keep the show for one more year. Meanwhile, taping for a highly anticpated reunion special originally set to be released on HBO Max in May has been repeatedly postponed due to COVID-19. 1962 Newsweek wrote, “Today the political pollsters are more powerful than ever.” One of the most well-known was Louis Harris, “whose pulsetaking [led] to the selection of candidates.” By the time…

shoot-out at the ballot box

DEMOCRATS WILL “CONFISCATE YOUR guns and appoint justices who will wipe away your Second Amendment,” President Trump warned in his recent acceptance speech for the Republican presidential nomination. He’s right. Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris has promised to use executive orders to ban guns, and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has promised to make former Congressman Beto O’Rourke his gun czar. O’Rourke made a name for himself when he yelled, “Hell yeah, we’re going to take your AR-15.” He called them, “weapons of war, designed to kill people efficiently on a battlefield.” If Democrats win control of both the Senate and the presidency, the legislation they will pass and the judges that they will appoint will eventually lead to guns being banned in the United States.

the netanyahu dilemma

SEATED IN THE OVAL OFFICE EARLIER this month, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu displayed a token that President Donald Trump told him was “a key to our country and to our hearts.” A year from now, could Netanyahu receive the most prestigious gift of all: a Nobel Peace Prize? Israel’s longest-serving leader was in Washington D.C. to sign two historic agreements that, with the Trump administration’s support, he has forged in the past weeks with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain. By the time the Nobel Committee makes its choices next fall, it’s possible that Israel may have achieved a deal with Saudi Arabia as well. The inconceivable may become the almost-inevitable. Such an achievement surely warrants the A YEAR FROM NOW, NETANYAHU MAY HAVE LARGELY ENDED, OR SOLVED, THE HERETOFORE ENDLESS,…
