WEAKNESS IS THE NEW STRENGTH
The progressive spin is that Putins invasion, as the Center for American Progress put it, is an act of weakness, not strength an act, as Kerry aptly characterized it, anachronistic in both moral and strategic terms fundamentally mismatched to 21st century realities.
In the upside down world of progressive soft power, invading another country is an act of weakness while being unable to do anything about it is an act of strength. Weakness is the new strength and strength is the new weakness.
Obamas impotence makes him a world leader, while Putins potency makes him a 19th century relic.
The more Putin does, the more he shows that hes another Sarah Palin or Mitt Romney, a déclassé bumpkin unfit for the modern 21st century realities of discussing foreign policy on Jay Leno and cracking wise about horses and bayonets.

SOME ANIMALS ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS
Like ObamaCare, Obamas massive budget proposal has all sorts of horrible things in it, but one of them is more horrible than the rest.
That of the funds appropriated under title III of this Act, not less than $575,000,000 should be made available for family planning/reproductive health, including in areas where population growth threatens biodiversity or endangered species.
Its hard to misread this as anything except promoting birth control/abortion of humans to protect endangered species.

According to local Aleutian elders, 19 people have died since 1980 as a result of the impossible-to-navigate weather conditions during emergency evacuations.
During an August visit to Alaska, Jewell was told that building a road that connects King Cove and Cold Bay was vital. But in December, Jewell rejected the road saying it would jeopardize waterfowl in the refuge.

STATE OF DECLINE
The Oscar campaign for 12 Years a Slave was kicked off with the slogan, "It's Time."
Time for what? Time to throw a politically correct bone in the right direction. And as always the bone was thrown.
12 Years a Slave had the smallest number of awards for a Best Picture winner since 2005's Crash, which scratched the same politically correct spot. That makes both movies completely unique in decades. But you probably don't remember Crash. Hollywood is lucky if you remember The Artist.

Putin: Listen to me. Listen to me carefully. I want you to correctly understand me.
If we reach that decision, only if we reach that decision, it will only be for the defense of Ukrainian citizens, let anyone from the military dare shoot at their own people which we will be behind, not in front but behind, let them try and shoot at women and children.
Let me see who in the Ukraine will give such an order.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton presented Georgetowns annual Hillary Rodham Clinton Awards for Advancing Women in Peace and Security.
Confusingly none of the three recipients of the Hillary Rodham Clinton Awards for Advancing Women in Peace and Security were women but the presence of women would just distract from Hillary Clintons accomplishment as the only female leader in human history.
Hague responded to his award by delivering a speech praising Hillarys non-existent accomplishments.
"Hillary, you enhanced the standing of US diplomacy in the world. You strengthened the State Department. You created new opportunities for your country, breaking fresh diplomatic ground in Asia and Africa. You are one of the worlds resolute champions of human rights, and in doing all these things and more you placed the United States in a stronger position for the 21st century."

A POSITIVE STEP FORWARD
Solomon Yahya was born in Yemen in 1915. He worked as a gardener for forty years in Israel. Even long after retirement he continued doing the work that he loved. A month before the Madrid Conference at which Israel was forced to negotiate with the PLO, he was stabbed to death in a public park.
He was 76 years old.
At the end of last year, Solomons murderer, Abu Mohsin Khaled Ibrahim Jamal, was freed by Israel as a confidence-building measure to bring Mahmoud Abbas, the leader of the Palestinian Authority, to the negotiating table.
The release of the murderers, negotiated by Kerry, was praised by a State Department spokeswoman as a positive step forward.

ULTRAMAN IS THE COOL ONE
A government representative confirmed the ban. In a statement on Friday, the Home Affairs Ministry said that because Ultraman is idolized by many children, equating the lead character, Ultraman King, with Allah would especially confuse Muslim children and damage their faith.
Ultramans superpowers include Ultra Punch (Urutora Panchi): This is a basic punch, but since Ultraman possesses super-humanoid physical strength, it has the power of 50 Indian elephants.
Allahs superpowers include 72 Virgins: This tricks his followers into killing for him in the hope that they will receive 72 virgins.

POLITICS OF THE PARANOID
While toppling Putin would be harder than toppling Yanukovych, the USSR, which was a good deal tougher than Putins mafia state, was overthrown in part by popular protests.
Behind the staged photographs of a bare chested Putin hunting tigers or spearfishing for alligators is a narrow coterie of corrupt businessmen and an equally corrupt police state whose only interests in support the existing system are financial.
Putin isnt just playing at empire, hes also protecting his own back.

THE GLICK SOLUTION
Two state solution proponents have insisted rightly that the existing state of affairs cannot continue, but after two decades it is the two state solution that has become the state of affairs that cannot continue. The Israeli Solution advocates something that has never been tried before throughout this conflict; integration instead of segregation and unity instead of partition.

SOMEONE MUST PAY
The Left has already succeeded in producing a resentful generation in times of economic stagnation. A generation not taught to use its rational faculties in debate, but to get shocked and offended in the face of diverging opinions.
Despite expertise in class warfare and degrees in areas like gender and ethnic studies, this generation is not getting what it thinks it is entitled to. This generation is not taught to be objective and self critical, lest it be too hard on itself! So if these young people are not getting what they think they deserve. Then, it has to be the systems fault.

THE EXPURGATION OF TEARS
I wondered how many tears Dimacali had shed for Ilan Halimi, the young French Jewish man in Paris who was kidnapped in 2006 by a group called the Gang of Barbarians and tortured horrifically over a period of three weeks, which finally ended in his tragic death. The gang members cut his fingers, ears, bits of his flesh; they burned him with acid and poured flammable liquid on him and set him on fire. Four-fifths of his body was mutilated by torture.
What were her emotions when she thought of how the gang forced Ilans mother to listen to her sons tortured screams over the phone while they simultaneously recited Quranic verses to her?
What were Dimacalis feelings when, at his trial, the leader of the gang, Youssouf Fofana, smirked at Ilans mom and relatives and shouted, Allahu akbar?

FIRES OF JIHAD
The fire of jihad, Holy War, must burn in the heart of every Muslim. It is a collective and personal duty; and every Muslim leader, particularly the head of the Muslim Empire, is obliged to pursue this duty ceaselessly. Legally therefore, the appellation of "The Land of War" to Europe is understandable. Every Christian coming from the Land of War - dar al harb- has the status of harbi. This is different from being a dhimmi, the status imposed on Christians and Jews tolerated to live under Islamic rule as a third-class subjects. The harbi is simply an alien, an enemy of Islam, even when no acts of war are in progress between the two sides. This legal outlook reflects the religious obligation to keep the Holy War alive.
