  • Last practitioner of Minoan rituals may have lived in Jerusalem's Old City till '48

    Ha'aretz ^ | April 20, 2015 | Roy (Chicky) Arad
    Midwife Mercada Dasa lived in the Old City of Jerusalem until 1948. In her attic she raised an unusual pet -- a white female snake about a meter and a half long -- and fed it sugar cubes. Just before the entry of the Jordanian Legion she left the besieged city with her family and her pet remained behind. That a midwife, whose family lived in Jerusalem since the time of the Second Temple, carried on a tradition of feeding white female snakes was part of the family's lore, but not something anyone considered significant. Now Mercada's grandson, Benny Avigdory,...
  • Anatomy of a flip-flop: Dan Lipinski's path to immigration reform

    10/22/2014 4:35:25 PM PDT · by ObamahatesPACoal · 5 replies
    When it comes to liberal causes, U.S. Rep. Dan Lipinski usually is a stranger. The Southwest Sider is a Blue Dog Democrat in a party in which moderate conservatives like him have almost disappeared. Last year he was one of just seven House Democrats — and the only one from Illinois — to vote against re-electing Nancy Pelosi as House Democratic leader. He's joined with Republicans in a variety of causes and not too long ago was clearly pleased when his name was floated as a potential U.S. ambassador to the Vatican. (SNIP) Though Mr. Lipiinski kind of shrugs it...
  • Editorial: We recommend Leticia Van de Putte for lieutenant governor (Wise Latina quota queen)

    10/18/2014 5:25:45 PM PDT · by ObamahatesPACoal · 8 replies
    There are a couple of ways to keep your house warm this winter. You could choose the reliable heater you’ve known for years. Or you could keep gasoline and matches handy next to a fire pit you dig in the living room. Most of us are going to pick the heater. The other choice seems … reckless. Your vote for lieutenant governor isn’t so different. Sen. Leticia Van de Putte, a San Antonio Democrat, has been a steady legislative hand for two decades. Her opponent, Republican Sen. Dan Patrick, is potentially explosive, impact unclear. Also on the ballot are Libertarian...
  • Van de Putte’s ‘Another Wise Latina’ T-shirts getting rave reviews

    Texas Sen. Leticia Van de Putte has a great sense of humor. She also has great political timing. Just as the confirmation hearings for Judge Sonia Sotomayor were wrapping up, about 180 little packages were in the mail. By the time Sotomayor answered the Senate Judiciary Committee’s last question, Latina leaders throughout the country were opening Van de Putte’s gift with gleeful laughter. Inside was a plain white tee with four words written in blue. They say, “Another Wise Latina Woman.” The cards that arrived with them were addressed: “Dear Wise Latina Woman: “As the first Latina Supreme Court of...
  • Todd Staples Op-ed: Building the Right Republican Platform

    Breitbart ^ | Todd Staples
    As Texas Republicans, we have the opportunity to set the tone for the rest of the nation. Let's not pick sides, let's pick what is right for Texas and right for America, without compromising conservative principles in the process. Washington continues to be paralyzed and unable to find the right fix to secure our southern border and reform a failed immigration system. Maintaining the “status quo” only plays into the hands of President Obama, allowing him to pick and choose which laws he wants to enforce. Saying “secure our border” is certainly the right approach and as conservatives, we know...

    San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro is about to be tapped by President Barrack Obama to be the next Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). This is the second time Obama will have asked Castro to serve in his administration. The move for Castro comes at a time where a big game of musical chairs is going on in the Obama Cabinet. Castro will be asked to replace HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan, who is expected to move to head the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).
  • Lee Terry won’t get GOP rival’s blessing

    Nebraska Watchdog ^ | Joe Jordan
    When it comes to Congressman Lee Terry’s re-election push, Dan Frei is pushing back. Only hours after his badly underfunded bid to unseat Terry in Tuesday’s Republican primary came up just short on votes but long on attaboys, Frei tells Nebraska Watchdog he’s keeping his distance. “I do not have an endorsement for Congressman Terry,” says Frei who was also a no-show at the GOP’s post-election unity breakfast in Lincoln. Despite ponying up $900,000 to Frei’s $40,000, Terry, an 8-term incumbent, managed a meager six-point win.

    A new television ad in the lieutenant governors race has a charity demanding an apology. The ad from the David Dewhurst campaign show a series of pictures of Dan Patrick with a tie but no shirt looking as if he’s at a wild party, but a written statement from the Be an Angel Fund reveals that Patrick was literally selling the shirt off his back at a fundraiser to help special needs children.

    I’ll cut to the chase. Dan changed GORUCK for the better, forever. Fate smiles on those she loves kind of deal. Dan and I are both Green Berets, which means we share a bond I would best describe as brotherhood with all the fights and all the smiles. But truthfully it’s all smiles. Dan was meant to find GORUCK. And vice versa. Back in March of 2011 at Class 017 in Raleigh no shit there he was. Except, of course, I didn’t understand who he was.

    The bomb that was used to blow up a Dan bus in Bat Yam last month was remarkably similar to the bomb that was used in the Boston Marathon terror attack in April of last year. The bomb that exploded last month on an evacuated public bus in central Israel closely resembled the type used in the Boston Marathon attack. The explosive in Bat Yam was enclosed in a pressure cooker and was activated by a cell phone, according to the Shin Bet security service.  ... The bomb, which was placed in a black backpack with wires sticking out,...

    Lori Brasnahan was trying to save her daughter’s life when she was stabbed to death in March, prosecutors say. Branashan and her daughter were abducted from the parking lot of Great Northern Mall near Syracuse by a man who brutally raped the 10-year-old girl before murdering Brasnahan, a 47-year-old school librarian. Prosecutors in Onondaga County, N.Y., say the man responsible for that atrocity, David Renz, 29, had been released from federal custody in January, two days after the FBI arrested Renz on a child pornography charge...Nevertheless, U.S. Magistrate Andrew T.

    Polling suggests most Republican candidates for statewide seats will be defeated in November. Two candidates, however, are in prime position to become the first Republicans in over a decade to serve in their respective seats. Staten Island District Attorney Dan Donovan and Harry Wilson are the GOP nominees for attorney general and comptroller, respectively. Donovan received the GOP nod and avoided a primary when Onondaga County Comptroller Robert Antonacci decided not to challenge Donovan in a primary. Wilson gives the party a great shot at beating, as Republicans would call him, “unelected” Comptroller Tom DiNapoli. Donovan, prior to becoming district...

    Washington -- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi laid down the law this year: To prevent the appearance of Congress doing unethical favors for big campaign contributors, she told Democrats they could no longer steer federal money directly to corporations. The only "earmarks" members could seek in spending bills would be for nonprofits... But not everyone is obeying Pelosi’s tough talk... U.S. Reps. Dan Maffei and Michael Arcuri have found a way to work around the new orders: Simply pass the federal money to not-for-profit organizations and let them forward it to corporations.... Maffei and Arcuri accepted campaign contributions from the same...
