    Whether in the mess hall or on a battleship, Jewish soldiers stationed all over the world still sang the Four Questions and ate matzo.Seder on the U.S.S. Astoria in the Pacific, 1945. “Lettuce au charoses.” “Kneidlach or borscht a la Sgt. Weinstein.” “Consommč [sic—the accent points the wrong way!] avec Knadlach.” “Palestine wine.” “Roast Beef Ala Yomtov.” “Iced Coca-Cola.” These were some of the dishes enjoyed by Jewish members of the military at their Seders in both European and Pacific theaters of war 70 years ago. The American Jewish Historical Society at the Center for Jewish History has a file...

  • John Kerry Invokes “Allah” to Help Him Commit TREASON Against the United States

    In a tweet, Middle East reporter Laura Rozen discussed a friend’s meeting with Kerry at a Lausanne chocolate shop. “Friend of colleague ran into @JohnKerry at chocolate shop tdy. She said friends in #Iran are looking forward to deal. He said ‘inshallah,'” Rozen tweeted. “Inshallah,” for those of you not up on your Arabic, means “Allah willing.” “Inshallah,” of course, may come to be the 21st century version of Neville Chaimberlain’s “Peace in our time.” It’s clear that Kerry has been sent on a blatant appeasement mission that he seems to be carrying out flawlessly. It’s so bad that we’ve...

    One wonders if U.S. President Barack Obama will campaign as vigorously to defeat Prime Minister Stephen Harper this fall, as he did, unsuccessfully, to defeat Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in that country’s recent election. It’s no secret Obama despises Netanyahu, who heads Israel’s right-wing Likud party and favoured Mitt Romney over Obama in the 2012 presidential race. The U.S. president has also talked since the beginning of his administration about the need to “put some daylight” between the U.S. and Israel, so he would have more influence with Arab and Muslim countries in his pursuit of an Israel-Palestine peace...

    The left lost its collective grip last Monday, when Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas announced he was running for president. Really, it was the mirror image of the visceral way Republicans react to Hillary Clinton. It’s no overstatement to say that Cruz is absolutely hated by the left, loathed as the embodiment of right-wing insanity. Which, of course, makes conservatives love him even more. Following Cruz’s announcement, lefties comforted themselves by reassuring everyone within earshot that Cruz has no chance of winning. “It will never happen,” was the title of a post on the Talking Points Memo blog by...
  • Ex-CFO Who Slammed Chick-fil-A Lives on Food Stamps (Does Chik-fil-A Accept foodstamps?)

    Things haven't gone too well for the former CFO who criticized Chick-fil-A in a video he posted on YouTube. Unable to find lasting work, 37-year-old Adam Smith is living on food stamps with his wife and four kids in the RV they call home, he tells ABC News. "I think people are scared," Smith says of potential employers. "I think people are scared that it could happen again." Back in the summer of 2012, as thousands of people were opposing Chick-fil-A's stance on gays, Smith rolled into a Chick-fil-A drive-thru for a free glass of water and slammed the female...

    Guess What Makes The Cut As A 'Smart Snack' In Schools? Hot Cheetos Flamin' Hot Cheetos might conjure a lot of descriptors: spicy, crunchy, unnaturally fiery red. But it's a good bet that "healthy" didn't exactly spring to mind. Yet it turns out that those fiery Cheetos beloved by school children (some kids even made an epic rap paean to Hot Cheetos a few years ago) actually qualify as a "Smart Snack" under revised federal nutrition guidelines for schools. The Obama administration rolled out the new guidelines last year in a bid to limit the amount of junk food kids...

    Appearing on Fox News’ MediaBuzz on Sunday, Washington Post columnist Kathleen Parker demonstrated a complete 180 degree change of heart surrounding Senator Ted Cruz’ presidential prospects. At first, Parker argued that “he’s obviously not going to win the presidency” before insisting that when it comes to Cruz “the Washington media are really out of touch with real America.” Parker’s comments came during a panel discussing surrounding the media’s treatment of Ted Cruz in which liberal journalist Juan Williams insisted that Cruz received just as much criticism from conservatives as he does from the liberal media.

    A California school dispute that arose when students wore shirts emblazoned with the American flag on Cinco de Mayo could prompt the Supreme Court to take a new look at free-speech rules for high schools. Ever since students protested the Vietnam War by wearing black armbands, the justices have said the 1st Amendment protects the rights of students to peacefully protest at school, so long as their actions do not lead to a "substantial disruption." In recent years, however, some school officials have moved to curtail political fashion statements such as wearing T-shirts with Confederate flags or anti-gay slogans. They...

    In the dangerous last two years of Obama's presidency, things could go from bad to worse. His allies are now backing a pro-Sharia populist in Nigeria's presidential election, with potentially disastrous results On Saturday, Nigerians will go to the polls to choose their president. The race pits an incumbent with an imperfect record against a former military dictator who has flirted with Islamism. As with the recent election in Israel, alumni of Obama are aiding the challenger -- and not because he would make the region safer. The decision Nigerians will make this weekend matters greatly, both for themselves and...

    There are different opinions on how to deal with the Iranian regime over their nuclear proliferation, whether its contention between the Obama administration and regional partners including Israel, Saudi Arabia and Egypt, or even between lawmakers on the right and left here in the U.S.There may never be agreement over the level of uranium enrichment, the number of centrifuges or a timeline Iran should adhere to, but the one thing we can all agree on is mistakenly being left out—the Mullahs’ 36-year egregious human rights record.The barbaric crimes against women, the youth, journalists, dancers, musicians, Christians, Baha’is and others will...

    Never Thirst - Taking Jesus "Literally" can be Fatal Roman Catholics like to try to claim that they are just taking Jesus "literally" when they interpret "this is my body" to mean that what was in Jesus' hands was not bread but his physical body [FN1]. Three passages in John help to illustrate the problem with that approach: John 4, John 6, and John 7.  In the first, Jesus refers metaphorically to living water, in the second Jesus refers to himself as food and drink, and in the third Jesus offers drink to those who thirst. In John 4, Jesus...

    I’m not concerned about Sen. Ted Cruz running for the presidency. His extremist views doom his chances and predestine his failure, but will provide some needed amusement and head-scratching peculiarities necessary to punctuate the merciless bore of an endless presidential campaign. Surrounded by a massive infestation of indoctrinated followers, he preceded his announcement with a paint-drying, self-aggrandizing preamble trying to the patience of all but his most ardent acolytes. Even its earnest pomp and magnificent solemnity were threatening glazed eyes to crust over and anesthetized enthusiasm to reach for that relieve only found in liberating slumber. Oh, I could tell,...

Here’s one way to tell Mr. Cruz (R-Tex.) from the winning constitutional scholar of 2008: Sen. Barack Obama promised to unite the country. Mr. Cruz — not so much.

    The first time most of us heard the name Bowe Bergdahl was when President Obama stood with his parents in the Rose Garden, announcing that after having been captured in Afghanistan in June, 2009 he was going to be released – traded, as it turns out, for five top-level terrorists being held in Guantanamo Bay. It’s funny how hindsight works. I’ve known several military families in my day, but Bergdahl’s parents – his father especially – not only did not strike me as a military dad: he struck me as man who had never put on a tie in...

He acknowledged that evangelical voters played a major role in his 2008 presidential campaign. Cruz, the first major Republican...

Obviously the odds of Bush even winding up in the top three are about the same as the odds of Joe Biden taking the Democrat Nomination in 2016. The far left media will probably keep Bush in the top three with their "Left Leaning Polls". Should be interesting to watch their reactions when Jeb wont even make the top four in Iowa.

Now that it is mired in a ratings slump, Lack’s mandate as chairman will be figuring out if MSNBC needs a complete overhaul or a sharpening of its mission. The current picture is seriously ugly. Through early March, Chris Hayes’ viewership at 8 p.m. on weekdays was down 23 percent from...

    Assyrian Church of the East ^ | 03-26-2015 | Mar Awa Royel
    It is great sorrow and a heavy heart that His Beatitude Mar Aprem, Metropolitan of India and Patriarchal Vicar, in unison with all the members of the Holy Synod of the Assyrian Church of the East (absent were Mar Aprim Nathniel and Mar Narsai Benyamin due to visa difficulties), announce the falling asleep in the Lord of His Holiness Mar Dinkha IV, Catholicos-Patriarch of the Assyrian Church of the East. The late Patriarch passed at 10:04 am, this morning (Thursday, March 26, 2015) at the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota. His Holiness was surrounded by the prelates, clergy and family members....

    Her ex-husband walked through two restraining orders and she was fearful that the ‘next time’ he would kidnap their 6 year-old daughter.Her stalker made himself known and she felt her safety threatened, not only when she was out, but in her own home because he told her he knows where she lives.A year ago she testified in court against an attacker and was just informed that he was being released.She was walking to her car from work and was badly beaten and her handbag stolen. When people reference women joining the firearms community, I regularly see and hear a lot...

    The Politico ^ | March 28, 2015 | Hadas Gold and Jonathan Topaz
    Glenn Beck wants listeners to pray for him. Mark Levin says Fox News is out to get him. Hugh Hewitt calls him an “intellectual leader.” Rush Limbaugh thinks his campaign launch was “masterful.” Laura Ingraham hails him as “Reaganesque.” Erick Erickson considers him a “good friend.” Ted Cruz may be trailing in the polls and strapped for cash, but the first declared candidate of the 2016 race is winning in at least one key contest — the conservative talk-show primary. Tens of millions of listeners — and potential GOP primary voters — tune in each week to the biggest right-wing...

    Hoover Institute ^ | March 10, 2015 | Paul Gregory.
    On March 10, the Hoover Institution held a roundtable discussion on “Perspectives on Russia’s Hybrid War on Ukraine and US Foreign Policy."… General Mattis noted that Russia at first hoped that it could occupy East Ukraine without loss of life as it did in Crimea but was surprised by the Ukrainian forces fighting back with vigor. Russian military had to increase its logistic and military support for its rebel forces and then, in August, had to use regular troops to save the encircled Donetsk and Luhansk “people’s republics” from defeat. With regular Russian forces involved, Ukrainian forces have been outmatched,...
  • 'My problem with Cruz is that he's very, very smart'

    American Thinker Blog ^ | March 29, 2015 | Dan Joppich
    If establishment pundits can’t deny a Republican’s intelligence, then they have to claim his intelligence is a problem. The other day, NPR’s Robert Siegel assembled his usual suspects from the New York Times, Washington Post and Brookings Institution to provide a “balanced” review of the week in politics, including the latest from Ted Cruz. These two short sentences provide a perfect example of the uphill climb Cruz and any Republican has ahead: DAVID BROOKS of the NY Times: “My problem with Cruz is that he’s very, very smart – he’s going to Wall Street these days and impressing people with...

    Aged between 35 and 40 when she died, she was laid to rest alongside a large engraved stone, her body seemingly daubed in sparkling red pigment. Small, yellow flowers may even have adorned her grave 18,700 years ago -- a time when cave burials, let alone one so elaborate, appear to have been very rare. It was a momentous honour, and no one knows why she was given it... Her remains were discovered when Straus's team began digging behind this block in 2010. Radiocarbon dating reveals that the block fell from the ceiling at most only a few hundred years...

    As I continue to read on twitter that former dude from MSNBC that couldn't beat O'Reilly at 8, some NBA star I never heard of and that CBS anaylist that I used to like until yesterday talk about how the NFL and NCAA should move from Indianapolis, I realize maybe it is time to move the Super Bowl out of San Francisco and the whole California state. There is no reason why millions of freedom loving Christians, conservatives, republicans or libertarians should have to watch this horrible city host one of the biggest events of the year. The city that...
