    Note: This article is a not so funny satirical twist to the story of Meir Ettinger, administrative detainee, and his request to attend the brit of his firstborn son. All names of protesters are fictional: Remember the old Polanski film, “Rosemary’s Baby,” where Mia Farrow was impregnated with the seed of the devil? Now, in Israel, there’s a new twist on the story. This past Saturday night, Motzei Shabbat, at the entrance to Jerusalem, under the String Bridge, the Kahane-Ettinger families organized a demonstration, demanding that Meir Ettinger be released from prison to attend the brit of his baby boy,...
  • Brit Hume’s loud silence reveals the ugly secret about Obama’s immigration amnesty announcement

    11/20/2014 3:47:45 PM PST · by servo1969 · 56 replies ^ | 11-20-2014 | Bookworm
    There are some words that, as a writer, I’ve always wanted to use. One of those words is “cadaverous,” which I think is just a lovely, almost Dickensian word. Having attended last night’s delightful PRI Gala dinner, I finally have that chance. But let me start at the beginning….I don’t usually attend galas. Indeed, I don’t ever attend galas, since I am almost pathologically cheap and, no matter how much I admire the speaker or expect the company to be delightful, I simply cannot make myself pay several hundred dollars for a dinner and speech. Add to that the fact...

    Saw this last night on Fox and had such a good laugh, I feel obliged to pass it along today. There’s no way to prove he said it, but as Megyn Kelly’s quick to show with archived audio, that quote is well in line with the kind of crap Obama was telling himself and the rest of the electorate circa 2007. The most famous summation of his I-am-the-change approach to problem-solving is this one from Andrew Sullivan, written right around the time that audio was recorded: What does he offer? First and foremost: his face. Think of it as the...

  • North Korea tells Brit diplomats to get out — then sets chilling April 10 deadline

    The Sun ^ | 4/5/13 | Jack Losh
    Crackpot Kim Jong-un’s regime today issued a chilling threat to British diplomats warning them to get out of Pyongyang. Alarmingly the North Korean government said it would not be able to guarantee the safety of embassies from April 10. Russian diplomats have also been advised to evacuate. Today the Foreign Office added that it is “considering next steps” after the threat. It is still unclear why next Wednesday has been set as a deadline – but it is sure to spark fears despot Kim Jong-un will launch an attack after that date.

    Telegraph (UK) ^ | 8:55PM BST 12 Jul 2011 | By Richard Blackden
    The minutes of June's gathering of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) – the body that sets interest rates in the US – show that some officials believe fresh stimulus may need to be considered while others estimate that the risk of stoking inflation is now too high for such actions. The FOMC last month ended its controversial policy of quantitative easing, which saw the central bank buy $600bn (Ł377bn) of government bonds from banks and insurance companies in an effort to keep long-term interest rates low. Ben Bernanke, the chairman of the Fed, indicated in April that a further...

    The liberal and left-wing reaction against Fox News political commentator Brit Hume's comments on Fox News Sunday this week telling Tiger Woods to turn his life around by leaving Buddhism and becoming a Christian has been startling. One MSNBC host said that Hume's comments "diminished" Christianity and that his "Christian friends" agreed with him. Then, bloggers on radical left-wing websites like The Huffington Post began insulting Brit Hume for daring to mention Christianity in a positive light. Finally, comic lightweight Jon Stewart and one of his goofy commentators on Tuesday night's episode of "The Daily Show" on Comedy Central weighed...

    In the thriving Jewish community of Odessa, Ukraine, ritual circumcisions happen about one a week; weddings occur one a month. But the bris of young Alexander Gorvitz two weeks ago nevertheless made history for being the first time that more than 80 years that a Ukraine mayor hosted a public celebration on occasion of his son’s circumcision.

According to Chabad-Lubavitch Rabbi Avraham Wolff, who organized the ceremony with the Brit Yosef Yitzchak...

    Three factories in Iran are mass-producing the sophisticated roadside bombs used to kill British soldiers over the border in Iraq, it has been claimed.The lethal bombs are being made by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps at ordnance factory sites in Teheran, according to opponents of the country's theocratic regime. Designed to penetrate heavy armour, the devices being manufactured in Iran involve the use of "explosively formed projectiles" or EFPs, also known as shaped charges, often triggered by infra-red beams.The weapons can pierce the armour of British and American tanks and armoured personnel carriers and completely destroy armoured Land Rovers, which...

There is no indication The Times had any evidence there was anything improper in the family's adoption of five-year-old Josie and four-year-old Jack, both born in Latin America. Sources familiar with the matter told FOX News that at least one lawyer turned the Times down flat, saying...
