  • Ben Shapiro: When the Enemy of Your Enemy Is — Your Enemy

    National Review ^ | February 22, 2017 | Ben Shapiro
    Ideas and values should matter more than tribal identity... Unfortunately, many conservatives have embraced this sort of binary thinking: If it angers the Left, it must be virtuous. Undoubtedly, that's a crude shorthand for political thinking. It means you never have to check the ideas of the speaker, you merely have to check how people respond to him. That's dangerous. It leads to supporting bad policies and bad men. The enemy of your enemy isn't always your friend. Sometimes he's your enemy. Sometimes he's just a dude sitting there minding his own business... The logic of "if he melts snowflakes,...

    Bezos is a celebrity in his own right. The same as the political, military, history, security and intelligence and foreign affairs experts Beyoncé, JayZ, Kate Perry, Moby and Lady Goo Goo Mai Pan After All, it is what Democrats have been figuratively and literally doing to the rest of America since they began their illustrious party. Anyhow, why not join the looters for bigger loot if you happen to be Amazon’s CEO? And why not loot both, Democrats and Republicans?

    Forgive, but do not forget, and be the strong horse. While we speak, a jealous age will have fled. Seize the day! Trust as little as you can in tomorrow. The Latin poet Horace’s advice of carpe diem— to seize the day and not worry about tomorrow — should be Trump’s transitional guide. The attacks on Trump won’t even wait until he takes office; they begin now, well apart from rioting in the streets. And they will continue to be of several types. Of the personal sort, expect more “investigative” reporting and “speaking truth to power” op-eds about his tax...

    16 examples of left-wingers trying--and in some cases succeeding--in putting their adversaries in jail After GOP candidate Donald Trump vowed to seek prosecution of Democrat Hillary Clinton should he become president, the professional Left melted down. Trump was prominently labeled a would-be dictator who would turn America into a banana republic (something the Obama administration has largely already accomplished by undermining the rule of law). But the Left criminalizes politics and public policy differences all the time.

    Why then have many of our Republican luminaries and their masters begun to undermine the Trump campaign? “The enemy of my enemy is my friend”—ancient Sanskrit proverb, 450 BC. Republicans believe they face an unprecedented choice: To Trump or not To Trump. This is ludicrous. There is no choice. Did Roosevelt have a choice about whether to ally with Stalin in WWII? “The enemy of my enemy is my friend” sums up about all there is to know about “a choice.” Conservatives do not face a choice in this election. They are not permitted a choice. The idea of a...

    Via Jeff Dunetz, I’d rate this half-true. On the one hand, Biden is reputedly cordial with Republicans and has traditionally been the guy dispatched by Obama to Capitol Hill whenever the White House needs a liaison to Mitch McConnell. On the other hand, if this is how he treats his friends, what does he do to his actual enemies?Let’s not overthink it, though. This remark is obviously a rejoinder to Hillary’s stupid reply at last week’s debate when asked which enemy she’s proudest to have made. Biden’s positioning himself contra Clinton as someone with enough goodwill among congressional Republicans...

    Supporting America’s enemies abroad and criminals at home The modern-day progressive’s abiding hatred of the United States of America and the eternal principles for which it stands is what animates the Left’s efforts to cripple and destroy this one-of-a-kind nation. It is fair to say that support for America’s enemies abroad and criminals at home are the twin pillars of progressivism today. Since in the real world left-wing social engineering schemes inflict great damage on the human beings selected for experimentation, progressives’ most effective tactic is the smear, which they deploy day in, day out, when they run out of...

    Recognizing that statesmanship was replaced by political expedience long ago There is no comparison between supporting the survival of a nation and defending another nation’s violent intent. One is struggling for its very life, surrounded by enemies on virtually every side. The other is a theocratic foe to western countries, expending every resource on developing methods to destroy the West. In this scenario, why does the Leader of the Free World side with the menace rather than the underdog?

    “WHY is it that everybody is so eager to use military force?” America’s cerebral president betrayed a rare flash of frustration on April 28th when dealing with a question in Asia about his country’s “weakness”. Barack Obama said his administration was making steady, if unspectacular, progress. By blundering into wars, his critics would only harm America. Mr Obama was channelling the mood of his people, worn out by the blood and treasure squandered in Iraq and Afghanistan. A survey last autumn by the Pew Research Centre suggests that 52% want the United States to “mind its own business internationally”, the...

"For many years Israel's foreign policy was one directional towards Washington, but my policy has many more directions." Liberman, who returned to his post last week after being acquitted of fraud charges, said "the Americans today are dealing with too many challenges and I wouldn't want to be in their...

The former vice president said Republicans have faced challenges before and it’s healthy for the party to work to rebuild. The GOP “got whipped” in the 2012 presidential campaign, when President Barack Obama won re-election over Mitt Romney, and the party needs to build its base of supporters and find “first-class” candidates and turn to a new generation of leaders, Cheney told ABC’s “This Week.”

It has received scant public attention even though it extends beyond the U.S. national security bureaucracies to most federal departments and agencies nationwide, including the Peace Corps, the Social Security Administration and the Education and Agriculture departments. It emphasizes leaks of classified material, but catchall definitions of “insider threat” give agencies latitude to pursue and penalize a range of other conduct.

It called out Mr. VanderSloot and seven other private donors by name and occupation and slurred them as having "less-than-reputable" records.

    Richard Nixon's "enemies list" appalled the country for the simple reason that presidents hold a unique trust. Unlike senators or congressmen, presidents alone represent all Americans. Their powers—to jail, to fine, to bankrupt—are also so vast as to require restraint. Any president who targets a private citizen for his politics is de facto engaged in government intimidation and threats. This is why presidents since Nixon have carefully avoided the practice. Save Mr. Obama, who acknowledges no rules.

The best place to begin is with the words of Christ.

The major new development is that NOW liberals want to get rid of a dictator in the Middle East! Where were they when we were taking out the guy with the rape rooms? Remember? The one who had gassed his own people, invaded his neighbors and was desperately seeking weapons of mass destruction? The guy who emerged from a spider hole looking like Charlie Sheen after a three-day bender?

    Like FDR making a deal with Stalin, or Nixon reaching out to China, Americans are going to have to get used to the unthinkable — a treaty with Iran. So argues GEORGE FRIEDMAN, founder and CEO of the independent intelligence firm Statfor — sometimes called the private CIA — in his new book “The Next Decade” (Doubleday). In his previous book, “The Next 100 Years,” Friedman made the case for an American century, saying that no country truly threatens the United States’ economic or military dominance for decades. But in the next 10 years, how we handle that empire —...

    Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik rejected the argument that his office might bear more responsibility for the assassination attempt on Representative Gabrielle Giffords (D-Az) than Sarah Palin or Rush Limbaugh. “There are those who say that considering the numerous death threats Jared Loughner has made against various persons over the last year my office should have taken action against him before his Tucson shooting spree,” Dupnik said. “But these threats were against unimportant people and therefore of admittedly narrow scope. The broader threat was, and continues to be, that of right-wing extremism. Palin and Limbaugh are the foremost proponents of...

    Nazis promised grand mufti of J'lem Haj Amin al-Husseini leadership of Palestine after slaughter of its Jews, according to US report. NEW YORK – A newly released report by the US National Archives details the close collaborative relationship between Nazi leaders and the grand mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini, indicating that Nazi authorities planned to use Husseini as their leader after their conquest of Palestine. Husseini was paid handsomely by the Nazis for his efforts, recruited Muslims for the SS and was promised that he would be made Palestine’s leader after its Jewish population of 350,000 had been murdered.

    In what may have been his very first feeble attempt at bipartisanship since being elected over two years ago, President Obama promptly destroyed any smidgin of good will he may have accumulated by mewling to the press about the perfidy of Republicans as he announced his deal to extend unemployment benefits (again!) in exchange for dropping a greatly-desired-by-Democrats tax increase. In response to a reporter’s question about rewarding the “obstructionism” of the Republicans, the President had this to say: “It’s tempting not to negoitate with hostage takers, unless the hostage gets harmed. Then people will question the wisdom of that...

    Check out the latest from the Air Show China. This year, China is showcasing numerous models of unmanned aerial vehicles (drones); most of which are for sale. Look closely at the WJ600 model: "The Chinese drone of greatest potential concern to the U.S. is the one with several missiles and a jet engine—called the WJ600—which was displayed by China Aerospace Science & Industry Corp., or Casic, one of China's top weapons makers. Casic officials declined to comment, but a video and a two-dimensional display by the company showed Chinese forces using the WJ600 to help attack what appeared to be...

    The developers behind the proposed Ground Zero mosque have applied for about $5 million in federal grant money set aside for redeveloping downtown Manhattan after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, according to a new report. The application was submitted as a "community and cultural enhancement" grant, which is a program run by the Lower Manhattan Redevelopment Corp. Developer Sharif El-Gamal discussed the grant proposal in recent closed-door meetings, according to The Daily Beast. The revelation that the developers have asked for this grant could reignite outrage about the mosque's proposed location.

    If you had your butt kicked in an athletic contest -- or an election -- you would think it would warrant a long look in the mirror. You might start thinking about what you could have done differently during the past contest, and perhaps you would reflect about your strengths and weaknesses, and those of your opponent. Back when I wrestled in high school, I had a teammate who was both outstanding on the mat and an exemplary student. I remember that on one rare occasion, he was soundly beaten. I will never forget his bruised-ego comment to me right...

    The Obama Administration filed court papers asserting that “the Government has the authority to use deadly force against its enemies.” The filing came in response to a lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) charging that the asserted killing authority violates the US Constitution. As the US Department of Justice (DOJ) Brief put it, “this Government faces serious threats both at home and abroad. Just this past November 2, over 60 members of the governing coalition were driven from their posts by dangerous right-wing elements who have been identified by the...
