The impeachment inquiry has inadvertently identified one of the main problems facing America today. It is our educational system. The enterprise has been broken for many years, but the testimony of three out of four professors at the House Judicial Committee meeting this past week highlighted just how bad the situation has become.

There were 16,112,566 members of the United States Armed Forces during World War II. It is estimated that 389,292 American veterans from the war were still alive in 2019. On November 8, my beloved father-in-law, Louis Goldstein, passed away, making only 389,291 vets still alive. He was buried with full US Navy honors at the Mount Hebron Cemetery in Queens.

It is not mere coincidence that as President Trump’s impeachment inquiry was raging in the Intelligence Congressional Committee, across the ocean, in Israel, Prime Minister Netanyahu was indicted on charges of fraud, bribery, and breach of trust by Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit. Mr. Mandelblit happened to be an old friend and appointee of Prime Minister Netanyahu. The latter fact made the story even harder to swallow. Unfortunately, this is the state of politics in 2019.

No president in recent times has done more to change the culture of Washington than President Donald J. Trump. I believe even his critics would agree. In the process, he has been met with tremendous pushback and formidable resistance. There is no question in my mind that the president is fighting for the “soul” of America. The impeachment proceedings have more to do with a “Kulturkampf” than they do with Ukraine.
