    Another prominent Democrat has trashed Elie Wiesel — the Holocaust survivor, author, and Nobel Peace laureate who died on Saturday. Dorothy Reik, president of the Progressive Democrats of the Santa Monica Mountains and a member of the Los Angeles County Democratic Central Committee, wrote an email quoting a reference to Wiesel as a “Holocaust whore” and adding: “I had met people who made their livings from the holocaust [sic] but never to the extent that Wiesel did.” Reik had been defending Max Blumenthal, the virulently anti-Israel writer and son of Hillary Clinton adviser Sid Blumenthal, who had tweeted: “Elie Wiesel...

We don’t have a consumption problem. Then, the question, why the war? Why the killings? It’s because we are in between those that consume the drugs here in the north in United States and those who produce the drugs south, Columbia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia. “And here is Mexico in this war, why? We have accepted to collaborate with United States in trying to cut the drug trafficking, trying to...
