  • Impeach the Emperor O - The Only Real Answer to Executive Amensty

    In the past, I've advised against trying to impeach the reprobate-in-chief. It seemed futile and self-defeating. I've changed my mind. Whether or not it succeeds, it's the only way for Republicans to show that they're serious about stopping a president who's like a car without brakes barreling down a mountainside – smashing the Constitution and running over representative government. Congressional Republicans, led by the Indomitable John Boehner and Stalwart Mitch McConnell, are said to be considering such drastic measures as – have mercy! – suing Obama. Other suggested remedies include denying funding to programs which would oversee the amnesty and...
  • Rand Paul's Obscene Pandering on Ferguson Should Sink his Chances for 2016

    Just as Hillary's "What difference at this point does it make" remark about Benghazi during a Congressional hearing will come back to haunt her, Rand Paul's politically correct spasm over Ferguson (his August 14 essay in Time Magazine) should preclude the possibility of Son of Ron getting anywhere near the GOP nomination in 2016. When the left starts swooning over a Republican, it's a dead-giveaway. A posting on the Washington Post's politics blog gushes, "Rand Paul's (Time) op-ed on Ferguson shows why he is the most interesting voice in the GOP right now." In this context, translate "interesting voice" as...
  • Bishop: Catholic Mom Murdered by Gay Man 'Died a Martyr for her faith'

    A Catholic mother who was brutally murdered by a gay man because she challenged him about his homosexual lifestyle “died as a martyr for her faith,” according to Bishop Thomas Paprocki, head of the Catholic diocese in Springfield, Ill., who also said the woman’s “murder was widely ignored by the media,” apparently for political reasons. The woman, Mary Stachowicz, a 51-year-old mother of four children and devout Catholic, was beaten, stabbed, raped, and strangled to death by then-19-year-old Nicholas Gutierrez on Nov. 13, 2002. He then wrapped her body in plastic and stuffed it under the floorboards of his apartment....
  • Mitt Romney: How to Lose the Most Important Election of our Time by not Really Trying

    Mitt Romney is losing the most important election of our lifetime. Don’t be deceived by the polls that show him “within the margin of error.” Don’t put your faith in last minute media-buys from the campaign’s gargantuan war chest. Don’t expect the debates to turn things around. The president may not be an electrifying speaker, but he knows how to demagogue. His message will be: I love the middle class; Mitt Romney wants tax cuts for millionaires and eats children. And, don’t count on the fact that public opinion is against Obama on almost every significant issue. (At no time...

    UPDATE: Hours after publishing this critique, the BBC published a separate followup reflecting Maariv’s apology, while the Daily Telegraph removed the story from its website. We wait for AFP and YNet News to correct the record as well. * * * A truly bizarre story appeared in the Israeli press in the past few weeks. According to YNet News: A Jerusalem rabbinical court recently sentenced a wandering dog to death by stoning. The cruel sentence stemmed from the suspicion that the hound was the reincarnation of a famous secular lawyer, who insulted the court’s judges 20 years ago. The story...

    The night they drove old Hosni down — and all the neo-cons were singing. Weekly Standard Editor Bill Kristol was the kapellmeister. Prior to the exit of Beast Mubarak, Kristol (in yet another of his Olympian pronouncements), thundered: “The United States must support the Egyptian awakening, and has a paramount moral and strategic interest in real democracy in Egypt and freedom for the Egyptian people. The question is how the U.S. government can do its best to help the awakening turn out well.”How do we know neo-cons aren’t really conservatives? Conservatives are realists. They confront reality without ideological blinders. They...

    In January of 2009, huge numbers of eager liberals made the trip down to Washington D.C. to celebrate the inauguration of Hope and Change. The mood of the day was optimism. The big change had finally come. Nearly two years later, they returned to Washington D.C. on buses for Jon Stewart’s clownfest, but the mood had changed. Contempt had replaced optimism. The left wing of the Democratic party had reverted to its Bush era sneers and jibes. The mocking costumes and signs had been staples of Anti-War rallies and Anti-Bush rallies from 2001 to 2008. But this was not a...

    I believe in equality for all. I support civil rights, women’s rights, gay rights, universal health care, feeding the poor, social justice, separation of church and state, access to education, diversity, the arts, animal rights (I have not eaten meat or poultry in 33 years), and more. I marched against the war in Vietnam, protested the bombing in Cambodia, and advocated for affirmative action. In terms of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, I met with the Palestinian leadership, including Yasir Arafat, as part of my peace activism. I believed, up to a point, in Oslo, and maintain that while a failure, it...

    [The following, by Tom Mountain, here in full, appears in this week's Jewish Advocate] The rabbis could barely contain their glee at meeting their president for the first time. Ignoring protocol, they crowded around him, hands outstretched, in a sincere, even loving attempt, to express their adulation. One rabbi grasped the president's hand, looked him in the eye, and said, "Mr. President, I believe that had history placed you in your special position during World War II, there would not have been a Holocaust." The president, visibly moved, was uncharacteristically speechless. Another rabbi, so overcome with emotion at standing in...

    I went dumpster diving out back behind the “Lizard Lounge” over at 1.0 and found this apparent rough draft of a post Charles might be planning. Looks like he’s discovered yet more dangerous right wing extremists who are planning a revolution. (By the way, folks, this is satire.) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Following up on my post from yesterday that outed Jim Thompson, the founder of the right wing website Free Republic, for calling for a revolution to overturn the results of last November’s election, it seems the kook right wing fringe blogosphere’s case of Obama Derangement Syndrome is getting even worse. Obviously...

    James Von Brunn’s writings don’t sound very “right-wing.” On June 10, the nation tragically witnessed a memorial dedicated to commemorating an atrocity become the site of yet more death. Just before 1 p.m., longtime neo-Nazi James Wenneker Von Brunn entered the Holocaust Museum on the National Mall and opened fire in an attempt to complete the Final Solution his hero had left tentative, an omission Von Brunn dubbed “Hitler’s biggest mistake.” As former Defense Secretary Bill Cohen wandered the museum grounds, Von Brunn killed Stephen T. Johns, a black security officer, then was shot himself. As of this writing, the...

    (IsraelNN.com) A recent survey conducted by Bar-Ilan University's BESA Center in conjunction with the Anti-Defamation League reveals Israelis' opinion about the United States relationship to the Jewish State. The Israeli respondents, 57 percent of whom identified as secular, reported positive feelings toward America (72%), with a preponderance asserting that the United States is a loyal ally of Israel (68%). The overwhelming majority of those polled trust that the United States would come to the aid of Israel in the event of an existential emergency (76%), with nearly all respondents believing close relations with America is vital to Israel's security (91%)....

    At this point it’s reasonable to wonder how Jimmy Carter got elected governor of Georgia, let alone president of the United States. To witness him laying a wreath at the tomb of Yasser Arafat, then schmoozing with Hamas in Damascus, is enough to make the sane among us recoil in disgust. On the very day that the peanut-farmer-who-became-president claimed to have scored a commitment of peace from Hamas, the terrorist thugs launched a rocket salvo at Israel, thus leading the former president to claim that at least he gallantly tried to bring about peace and stability to the Middle East....

    The folks at General Electric must be so proud of their cable news network MSNBC. Not only does one of its top stars regularly debase the President of the United States, but also his most recent tirade actually garnered the attention of an Iranian television network. Coincidentally, the good folks at Press TV are just as enamored with Keith Olbermann as his fans at Daily Kos [cannot find Kos link for this. I used this link to try to rectify newsbuster's duplication}) (h/t JWF: In a scathing commentary against President George W. Bush, MSNBC commentator Keith Olbermann declared Bush guilty...

    (IsraelNN.com) The head of the police investigation regarding Olmert's alleged intervention in the Bank Leumi privatization recommends charges against the Prime Minister. The investigative team as a whole leans towards an indictment of the Prime Minister, in opposition to the stance taken by the head of the Police Department's Investigations Wing, Yochanan Danino. The Bank Leumi case is one of four cases against the Prime Minister currently being investigated by the police. It involves suspicions that Olmert, as Acting Minister of Finance in late 2005, attempted to change the terms of the sale of the bank to fit the terms...

Looks like I lost the bet, 'cuz it took 'em 'til today to attack her remarks. I thought they'd be on top of this sooner as part of their running propaganda charade.

    Patriots need to learn to say two words -- "treason" and "traitor." The American people need to hear the truth -- that the left has gone far beyond dissent. It betrays America at every turn. Its hatred of our nation -- our history and underlying ethos -- is visible in word and deed. It slanders the republic, lies about our past, undercuts our warriors, revels in American deaths and consorts with the enemy in time of war (aid and comfort, and all that). These reflections are prompted by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's speech at Columbia University, in the course of...

    (IsraelNN.com) Hareidi religious Jews living in the capital vented their rage in a demonstration Wednesday evening against the specter of hundreds of homosexuals parading down the streets of Jerusalem one week from now. The Jerusalem police department issued its final approval on Wednesday for the parade, which is expected to make its way through the center of the city, from Independence Park along King David St. to Liberty Bell Park. The police said they are also continuing to assess and make plans to deal with security threats associated with the event. Activists with the Eida Hareidit organization drove through the...

    Will Ann Coulter never learn? There are some things you just can't say, not even in jest. And at the top of that list right now is anything derogatory about the "gay" lifestyle or, worse yet, anything that is considered a slur against homosexuals, a protected class of people with special rights which entitle them to live free from all offense. Ann surely should have known this. After all, hasn't she seen any of the countless films or TV shows produced by Hollywood in recent years which promote homosexuality as a perfectly normal and acceptable alternative lifestyle? Indeed, the homosexuals...

    Media Monitor By: Jason Maoz Walt’s Paper Trail Judging from the shocked reaction among right-wing bloggers to a paper on U.S.-Israel relations written by professors Stephen Walt of Harvard and John Mearsheimer of the University of Chicago and issued this month by Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, one would think the paper’s authors were a couple of unknowns with no discernible paper trail. Both men, however, have been outspoken on the subject for years, and Walt in particular has made no secret of his feelings about what he calls Israel’s "domestic political penetration" – i.e., its manipulation...

    Will it Become "Portgate?" By Cliff Kincaid | February 27, 2006 Some of the negative reaction to the deal stems not from racism or Arab-bashing but the fact that initial federal approval of the deal sidestepped a legally authorized 45-day investigation. The initial outcry from the conservative blogs and talk radio over an Arab state-owned company taking over terminals at some U.S. ports seems to have subsided, as the Bush Administration, the Arab/Muslim lobby and their representatives and lobbyists have moved quickly to dominate the media debate. The firm, Dubai Ports World, is owned by the United Arab Emirates, an...

    Support for Israel among U.S. Jews could be declining A new survey on American Jewish support for Israel released last week is troubling, according to Charles Jacobs, director of the Boston-based Israel advocate group David Project. The poll found that although 82 percent of American Jews support Israel, almost half of them seldom discuss or defend Israel to non-Jews around them. It also found that the media is the most important influence in how American Jews view Israel today. “There does seem to be an awful lot of support for Israel, but there are several things that are troubling,” said...

    Abraham Foxman has gone from nuisance to embarrassment to self-parody. The national leader of the Anti-Defamation League has declared war on conservative Christians. In doing so, he's not only attacking the best friends Israel and the Jewish people have, he's also repudiating Torah-based morality. At a New York meeting of the ADL's national leadership recently, Foxman experienced a near total meltdown. Groups like Focus on The Family and American Family Association are leading a full-scale assault on tolerance and diversity, Foxman foamed.As reported in the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, Foxman declared: "Today we face a better financed, more sophisticated, coordinated, unified,...

    There is an exquisite parallel to be drawn from the French government`s proclamation on Tuesday, giving curfew powers to regional authorities and the power to carry out raids when police suspect that weapons are being stored in poor city suburbs that have been at the center of the current unrest. Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin told national television late Monday that the curfew and other powers would be invoked under a 50-year-old law first enacted in an unsuccessful attempt to quell an Islamist insurrection in Algeria, at a time when that North African country was a French colony. Although there...

    I am an Orthodox rabbi angrily denouncing one of the biggest recent box office hits. Which movie has earned my wrath? Here is a clue: it surprised everyone by selling over one hundred million dollars’ worth of tickets in its first week in theaters. No, it’s not Mel Gibson’s “The Passion.” The movie causing me deep distress is a Rosenthal/Tenenbaum production starring Dustin Hoffman and Barbra Streisand. I am sorry to see Barbra Streisand involved in such a flagrant defamation of Judaism. While she was making her film Yentl, for which I served as a consultant, she studied Judaism regularly...
