    I thought that India was supposed to be an ally of Israel, what with those joint technology projects, etc. Plus India India should know how it feels to be a target of Islamic terrorism.

    Shame on India for its "not taking sides" re the war in Gaza.

    Frankly, some liberals don’t think the Clintons are liberal enough for them.

    There's little difference in policy and ideology between the two "families" battling for control of the Democratic Party come 2016. It's simply the Obmatons vs. the Clintonistas, with Warren now stepping in to represent the Obama faction vs. HRC in the looming battle for the nomination. It's just a conflict of power and ego between Zero and WJC via the two female surrogates, Warren and HRC.

  • The movie 'America: Imagine the World Without Her' is a loser (Letter to Editor)

    It's pretty obvious that the writer of this op-ed is a leftist, perhaps even writing this piece on suggestion from some Democrat or Obama organization.

    The film is very worthwhile for any American who cares about the nation's core values and history, and who is concerned about the threats to its continuity imposed by the current regime in Washington. It rebuts the standard leftist misinterpretations of American history, which readily explains why this op-ed writer is so teed off.

    There are interesting techniques used to get the messages across, including re-enactments of historical events, with actors doing good jobs in portraying important historic figures, both heroes and villains. There are interviews with currently prominent individuals, both right and left, with Dinesh D'Souza himself doing some of them, plus archived film footage of some major leftists of the recent past.

    When I saw it last week, there were only cheers from the audience when the film ended, and absolutely no booing nor heckling nor other open signs of discontent, although I'd have to admit that the crowd was kind of sparse on a weekday afternoon.

    To all FReepers and other friends: please make it a point to see "America" if you haven't already done so. You won't be disappointed. (Full disclosure: I have no financial interest in the film.)

    It was a great World Cup. I watched every game from Day One.

    Can’t wait for 2018!

    I'd bet you didn't grow up in the United States. From an American sports fan's perspective, the game of soccer is generally kind of boring but it could be made more offensive by changing some rules that hinder scoring chances. And all that flopping of players only adds to the dead time.

    Then, too, the world championship today would have been determined by penalty kicks if Germany had not luckily put in a goal (that counted) right near the end. To break a tie game of ultimate importance by penalty kicks would be absurd. It's the equivalent of breaking a tie in basketball with by a free throw shooting contest.

    Of course, the US's relatively early elimination from the tournament detracted from interest here in the later stages of the World Cup.

    All Gaza has to do in order to live in peace is to stop making war.

    I would say that if Gaza decided to stop making war and concentrated on building up a peaceful economy, it has the warm climate and location on the Mediterranean to be a great tourist area. Of course, being Palestinians, they never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity.

    Congress should refrain from excercizing power over private citizens when its true gripe is with a federal official who refuses to comply with duty to enforce current laws.

    Merely resigning from a previous federal position, in which while serving one committed a crime, does not insulate a person from prosecution for that crime. And if that crime was specifically contempt of Congress, there is precedent for arrest of such person by the House sergeant at arms.

    And the Dictator on Chief continues to commit treason and congress does nothing.

    Yes, the first part of that is true, but on the House side they are at least stirring a bit lately with their committee hearings and investigations. Now you have Boehner belatedly coming up with a suit against the Dictator in Chief. Hope he's serious, and not just doing it for show, but I fear otherwise. Regardless, there is new GOP leadership needed in the House, and a new majority with new GOP leadership in the Senate in order to start to turn things around.

    Unfortunately, there is so much crime and scandal perpetrated by the Dictator in Chief and his administration that there are too many balls for the Republican lightweights in Congress to juggle at the same time.

    Insurance Companies change their formularies almost every year to define which medications they will or will not cover. Some will only cover generics on certain items, others define certain brands they WILL pay for and ones they will not. If a Physician insists on a particular medication that is not on the formulary, he can request an override. If the Insurance Company refuses the Override, the doctor can choose an alternate medication that IS covered, or the patient can opt to pay out of pocket for the non-covered medication.

    You're correct, but those niceties could be a thing of the past with Obamacare-compliant policies becoming mandatory for many employers and many individuals and families being dropped from coverage by their employers. With those new policies, I believe the drugs and devices covered will mandated by Big Brother, and I don't think there will be as much flexibility as we've become accustomed to. (Of course, they will also cost a lot more.)

    Let's not lose sight of the number one goal here: Repeal Obamacare ASAP!!!

    By ruling that corporations, on the grounds of the alleged religious views of their owners, can deny women access to some forms of contraception, the court set a horrible precedent that if followed will endanger the health and lives of many American women.

    This statement is just so typical of the doomsday propaganda that airheads on the left are spewing in reaction to the SCOTUS Hobby Lobby decision.

    The employer "can deny women access to some forms of contraception"? If some item or service is denied in an insurance policy, it only means that the insurance policy will not pay for it. I doesn't mean that these female employees are being "denied access" to these forms of contraception, because they can pay out of their own pockets (the price is very modest) or, if necessary, get the item and service they want from some other source, like Planned Parenthood.

    This whole idea that government or corporations have to pay for every product or service under the sun is insane. It's this entitlement and hand-out mentality that is a major factor in the growing decadence of American society.

    The left's encouragement of soccer in the United States (as opposed to sports more rooted in the American culture), combined with massive recent immigration from countries where soccer is almost a religion and where violence associated with it is par for the course, has exposed the US to more of these incidents.

    Combine this with the high level of violence associated with Arab/Islamic culture, which is geographically most prominent in metro Detroit, plus an player from an Arab background and an American-born referee, and you have a sociological milieu in this case that is most conducive to this kind of crime. In other words, a "perfect storm."

    Sad to say, this is merely almost an expected result of the sociological factors at play in this case.

    Land seems to be a nice lady but she's showing her true RINO colors by hanging out with McCain. But it seems like there are quite a number of RINOs in Michigan, as Romney's winning the GOP primary there in 2012 shows. So this McCain thing might not particularly hurt her chances in the general election, especially since we're still four months away.

    Of course, a RINO is still better than a 'Rat in the Senate elections this year. The first objective is to get the semi-senile Harry Reid out of the majority leadership, and that can only be done by electing Republicans to current 'rat seats, of which Michigan is a big one.

    Own petard ping.

    That's an accurate and precise way of putting it. Remember all the 'Rat fraud in Minnesota in the Franken-Coleman Senate race.

    Early voting starting six weeks before the election? How convenient for the fraudsters! As I've posted several times and will do so again: the more early voting you have, the longer the polls remain open, the more opportunity there is for election fraud and other types of cheating. Don't think you have to be a rocket scientist to understand that basic principle. Let's work to cut down or completely eliminate early voting whenever and wherever it exists!

    Yes, I picked up on that name Mohamed Noor. There could well be some link between that ethnicity and what may be going on there. After all, how many Islamic democracies have there been throughout history? There seems to be an almost complete disconnect between Islamic societies and free and fair elections (with perhaps very few exceptions).

    Ayers' life story reveals the serious weakness of the American criminal justice system. Despite a long history of planning and participating in violence, resulting in homicides, assaults, and property damage, he has never served any significant jail time, to the best of my knowledge.

    His skill in "ripping off identities of dead babies" may have played an important role in producing a forged Hawaii birth certificate for his buddy, Barack Obama.

    And, of course, he is also widely believed to be the ghostwriter of the phony Obama autobiography "Dreams from My Father."

    I've heard of this Christopher Parker before. He's a known leftist black professor whom Solon is interviewing merely to tar the Tea Party, which is essentially what Parker's work is all about. After all, Salon and Parker are ideological bedfellows.

    Comparing the Tea Party to the KKK and the Know Nothings of earlier eras is hardly accurate historical scholarship. Yet in the perverse minds of leftist ideologues, it's taken as such with no questions asked.

    The left (and its MSM lackeys) has an obsession with trying to marginalize and destroy the Tea Party that is way out of proportion to the Tea Party's strength and influence. But they know that Tea Party ideas and values more than Tea Party political power pose a barrier to their design of a complete transformation of the United States into a Soviet-like state. Kind of telling that in this interview with Parker, the word "Constitution" never comes up.

    McDaniel is only five thousand votes out, and I guarantee you there were that many fraudulent votes from the black districts.

    Actually, from what I saw last night, almost 7,000 votes. Unfortunately, the idea to get black Democrats to vote in the GOP primary runoff, though it may be very sleazy, is not illegal, at least in most cases, because of the open primary law in Mississippi. As long as someone is registered to vote and didn't vote in the Democratic primary this year, he or she was eligible to vote in yesterday's runoff. Seems like the GOP establishment took full advantage of that loophole in the law.

    Even if Cochran should win the general election in November, it's very possible that he may not be able to serve out a six year term. That could open up another opportunity for McDaniel. Changing the state law to allow only Republicans to vote in Republican primaries (and run-offs) would be a helpful change for the future.

    If he fights this thing, he can win.

    Yes, we are justified in being teed off at the sleaziness of the Cochran operation, but as long as the black 'Rat voters yesterday were legally registered and did not vote in the 'rat primary this year, there's no ground to argue that fraud occurred.

    The state Senate district on Staten Island to which you refer is a heavily Italian-American middle class district, maybe about 10% Jewish, with only a smattering of Orthodox and Russian Jews. (In other words, pretty much off the topic of this thread.)

    Didn't realize that Romney supposedly lost Staten Island as a whole because of the hurricane, which one would assume kept a lot of middle class homeowners from voting. Romney's popular vote on SI was an amazing 23% less than McCain's four years before. And his statewide vote was about a half million less than McCain's. Aside from the hurricane, Romney's failure to campaign in New York and in next-door NJ, and perhaps shenanigans in vote counting other Democrat cheating, contributed toward his losing the state by an incredible nearly 2 to 1 margin to an Obama candidacy which garnered about a half million votes in NY less than in '08 and several million votes less nationally than in '08.

    Weird. First time in American history that a president was re-elected nationally to a second term with a smaller popular vote than for his first term!

    As far as cultivating that 'potential' within orthodox communities goes, in the establishment Republican computer, the perceived effort may not justify the perceived results in any race they care about. The numbers are not that great.

    Just by the numbers, the Orthodox and Russian Jewish communities can account for several hundred thousand votes within the state. In a competitive statewide race (including presidential electors every four years), that could be the difference. Problem is that so many of these statewide races have not been competitive, primarily because the establishment GOP leadership has seemingly taken a "dive" on them.

    It wasn't Orthodox (for the most part) or Hasidic Jews that were involved with European socialism. And, just in case you didn't know, Karl Marx was NOT Jewish, but raised in the German Lutheran church. In fact some of Marx's writings are unmistakably anti-Semitic.

    Your add-on to the title in parentheses (Jews to become GOP NYC Voting Bloc), though I wish it were true, is rather premature at this point.

    What the study indicates are demographic trends some people here have been picking up on for some time. These trends appear to be favorable to the GOP in NY State (the survey takes in some NYC suburbs as well). A significant movement to the GOP by the state's Jewish voters could happen, but one necessary factor will be for the state and local GOP parties to actively cultivate and organize the potential vote here. This article should serve as wake-up call to them. But unfortunately, for the better part of a decade now, the New York state Republican organization seems to have been missing in action, generally speaking.

    Ed Klein seems to be at least somewhat gutsy in exposing the HRC in the past. I recall a bio of HRC he wrote back about the time of the Clinton Administration, which had some interesting revelations hinting that among other things, she was educated in a lesbian tradition at Wellesley and that according to what WJC told a friend, Chelsea was conceived when he had unconsented sex with her.

    Now, I understand from Drudge's site, Ed Klein will be exposing HRC's medical history. Seems as if what he writes is true, she shouldn't be running for president.

    What will really matter is whether there will be enough white male voters to counteract any sex-based voting nonsense.

    That's important, yes. But even among white voters, women have been outnumbering men for quite a while. I think that started about 1990, though I'm not sure. Traditionally, when women first began to vote, it didn't really have much effect on the overall voting percentages, because there was no significant "gender gap." The "gender gap" really began when women received more government assistance, statistically, than men did.

    I so happens, BTW, that although all blacks as a group vote around 90% 'Rat for president, there is a "gender gap" in the black vote as well.

    I never heard of this Carl Cannon, but his doctrine of genitalia-based inevitability is insulting even to the dumbed down American electorate as it exists today.

    Separately, HRC would seem to have at least a superficial demographic advantage, because in the last several decades of presidential elections, it appears as if female voters outnumber males by about 52%-48%. Now why do so more men not vote when compared to women? Time was when politics was more of a men's thing, and most women voted pretty much the same way as their husband or boyfriend. Now we have a significant "gender gap" and it seems the leftist culture has deliberately castrated (figuratively) too many American men in the name of the feminist movement.

    One antidote to HRC would be voter registration drives geared toward men.

    This whole admin is a twisted sick game show.

    Right on target. And their MSM partners are natural allies in that respect.

    Why should anyone be surprised at this? I'd be pretty sure that TV networks have long been coaching and prompting studio audiences as to when to cheer during the filming of their shows.

    Quite a number of years ago, I recall being in the studio audience for a couple of network TV game show filmings. (As far as I can remember, on these occasions, I and others were invited in on a haphazard basis for free because the producers had some empty audience seats that they wanted to be filled and it was getting close to showtime.) An announcer prepped the audience on when to cheer and neon "Applause" signs were flashed as a prompt.

    To CNN, the HRC town hall wasn't much more than a game show anyway. Furthermore, this kind of advance coaching of audiences has been used frequently at political campaign speeches, which this HRC event essentially was.

    The only thing a bit surprising here was that the WaPo spilled the beans on a fellow leftist MSM outlet, CNN.

    ...and the media if they want to air them.

    I don't think there will be any trouble airing Redskins' games at lest until the current NFL television contracts and the Redskins' local radio contracts and local TV and radio publicity show contracts expire.

    But some leftist sportscasters are reportedly already talking about a "political correctness" plan not to mention the name "Redskins" when talking about the team. Even if they tried to do that, they would probably slip up from habit.

    The Redskins went to court and the decision was reversed in short order.

    It will be again.

    Only problem with that thinking is that the composition of the federal judiciary as a whole has moved to the left since then, with the appointments of Obama, Clinton, and even W to some extent. So no one can be sure on the ultimate decision. Though everyone talks about SCOTUS decisions, the large majority of federal cases never get to the SCOTUS. They are decided in District Court, with appeals going to Circuit Court. (In this case it'll probably be the District Court for The District of Columbia with appeals going to the DC Circuit Court.)

    A cat gets stuck in a suspension coil of a vehicle.

    Thanks for teaching me what that thingamagig part of the car is called.

    Maybe I underestimated these Russian guys. I didn't think they would have the kindness toward a cat to do that work to free it from the care. I guess it's just the reputation that Russians have.

    I don't even know who decided this case, nor if the team was represented in any hearings before these "judges" (undoubtedly administrative law judges) made their outrageous decision. Fact is that the large majority American Indians, according to polls, see nothing wrong with the name "Redskins" nor the logos used by the team.

    I'd almost be sure that the American Indian plaintiffs in this administrative case had their legal costs paid for by the Obama Administration. That's because it's obvious that Washington Democrats have been leaning on the team for quite some time to change their name as a blatant attempt to make political hay out of a non-issue.

    Unfortunately, I foresee a gutless leftist named Roger Goodell (aka the NFL commissar) eventually getting other NFL owners to twist Redskins' owner Dan Snyder's arm painfully enough to get him to relent and agree to a name change. They'll try to do pretty much what the NBA commissar and owners are doing to Donald Sterling. If Snyder doesn't relent, they'll try to force him to sell the team. That's just the way crony capitalism works.

    But - given the history of persecution, one would think that American Jews - ESPECIALLY American Jews, in a country with such a tradition of firearms ownership - would be even MORE rabid self-defense advocates than any of us (put aside “Democrat” or “Republican”; I’m just talking firearms here).

    The American tradition of firearms ownership, though embedded in the Constitution as the Second Amendment, has evolved so that it is strongest in small towns and rural areas. By the twentieth century, urban and suburban areas, where most American Jews still live, more often than not adopted a mindset in which gun ownership was associated with criminality - like organized crime and mass murder. So I'd say that, generally speaking, American Jews' attitudes toward firearms pretty much reflect their urban and suburban backgrounds.

    I would love to have an explanation for that..

    Generally speaking, 80% or so of all American voters identify with the general political ideology and/or political party that their parents do or did (excepting those whose parents did not participate in the American political system). It's part of one's cultural heritage. Stories relating to political figures and their relationships to gut issues get passed down from generation to generation, no matter how accurate or inaccurate they may be. In the case of current Jewish voters, Franklin D. Roosevelt is frequently one of those names viewed as an icon for some strange reason, despite the fact that he had anti-Semitic tendencies and his record vis-à-vis Jewish issues leaves much to be desired when examined objectively. So the mythological Roosevelt and his party frequently became the objects of admiration and affection as passed down through the generations in too many Jewish families. It's only with a more objective interpretation of history and a recognition of reality can this family chain of brainwashing be broken. Today, there is definitely some movement away from the left in the Jewish community, but it is slower than some of us would like.

    I think it was Aaron Zelman from JPFO that said “If every Jewish family in Germany had had a Mauser Rifle and ammunition - and the WILL TO USE IT - the Holocaust would never have happened.”

    Yes, there is probably a lot of truth to that. The Nazis, like just about all dictatorships, were very well aware that disarming potential opposition was a key factor in achieving and maintaining totalitarian rule. So they saw to it that Jews and other potential troublemakers were banned from ownership of firearms.

    What caused Eastern European immigrant Jews (ancestors of most of today's American Jews) to adopt leftist politics in the first place was that they had very little choice in their native land, other than to oppose oppressive czarist rule and/or find a way to escape from it. In the politics of that time and place, political movements tagged as "right" were almost always anti-Semitic and anti-freedom.

    Look at the percentages that support the Demonrats, the numbers don’t lie. They vote for Demonrats in percentages only surpassed by blacks as a group!

    I'll grant you that the majority of Jewish voters in the election in of 2012 voted for Zero. But I'm sick and tired of that dumb table in "The Virtual Jewish Encyclopedia" constantly being thrown out as an authoritative source on the matter. Because of the facts that (1) that table was made put together by big-time 'Rat activists with their axe to grind and (2) the underlying polling that produced the numbers had severe flaws in technique, I think that for example, the 69% figure for Zero in 2012 was probably closer to 60%. Be that as it may, even the 69% of Jews purported to have voted for him was less than the percentage of the Hispanic vote he was reported to have received (somewhere in the 70s).

    Most significantly, for those Jews voting 'Rat, it's oftentimes based on more of a knee jerk habit (or even an addiction) rather than a logical analysis of the issues. So if you polled those 'Rat voters issue by issue, I think you would find that many don't agree with an "open borders" or "amnesty" policy, since many of those illegals who might benefit from the policy could cause significant problems for all Americans, and are even more likely to cause problems for Jewish Americans.

    Given the fact that Hamas has been working with the drug cartels for years now, you can bet that quite a few of the OTM & OTCA illegal immigrants that are getting through are probably aligned with terrorist groups from the middle east. I have no doubt that there are now at least several thousand terrorist "sleepers" here, and quite possibly numbering into the 10s of thousands.

    To the best of my knowledge, there hasn't been any Islamic terrorist involved in any plot in the US who entered the country via the cracks in the Mexican border, but it's probably only a matter of time before that happens. It's a freakin' disgrace that the US isn't addressing the problem of its insecure southern border before it's too late. US citizens are going to be getting hurt because of it, and the American Jewish population is particular vulnerable because of the ideology of these subhumans.
