    The Dem Congressmen Boycotting Netanyahu are the Same Old Hamas SupportersPosted By Daniel Greenfield On February 26, 2015 @ 6:02 pm In The Point | 12 Comments There are a lot of stories about the Dem members of Congress boycotting Netanyahu’s speech. But most of the names on the list are longtime opponents of the Jewish State.The boycott lists consists of two groups. Congressional Black Caucus members who are offended on Obama’s behalf and can smell racism anywhere.The other consists of opponents of Israel.It’s instructive to compare the list of boycotters to the 54 members of Congress who signed...

    While the entire nation focuses on the growing threat of radical Islamic attacks in the West, theres still an ongoing war on the southern border of the United States and it just got a lot worse. Thanks to Obamas willingness to allow undocumented illegal immigrants into the U.S. military, a situation bound to happen finally did. A 34-year-old Arizona Army National Guardsman NCO by the name of Raul Portillo was recently busted in an undercover sting and accused of helping Mexican drug cartels safely transport large loads of cocaine and marijuana over the border.

    ...According to WBNG in Binghamton, 15 New York towns in the southern tier of the state are considering seceding from New York and joining neighboring Pennsylvania because of Gov. Andrew Cuomo's fracking ban. A local group called upstate New York Towns Association is examining whether such a plan is possible, and if it's worth the cost. James Finch, Conklin Town supervisor, told Capital New York that "everybody over the border has new cars, new four-wheelers, new snowmobiles," because of the stronger economy in Pennsylvania, which allows fracking.

    An activist who was using his position on Colorados oil and gas task force to push for a New York-style ban on oil and natural gas development has given up on the fringe proposal for lack of support, according to documents released by state officials overnight. The proposals demise is yet another defeat for national anti-fracking groups in Colorado, such as Food and Water Watch and the Sierra Club, which are desperately trying to reboot their failed campaign for an effective statewide oil and gas development ban. Its also a reminder of how outside of New York, the ban fracking...

    Rudy Giuliani entered McCarthyist territory with his grotesque personal attack on President Barack Obamas patriotism. Speaking to a hardcore Republican crowd, New York Citys former mayor said: I know this is a horrible thing to say. But I do not believe that the president loves America. Giuliani is 100% right, what he said was horrible, yet he said it anyway, which makes Giuliani a horrible human being. By uttering such defamatory words he instantly went from Americas Mayor to Americas Mooncalf. While Giulianis insults may have thrilled the Republican base, they turned out to be baseless.

On Sunday morning, Jewish news columnist Baila Sebrow hailed a cab from Manhattan's Carlton Hotel - but when she entered the cab, she was instantly asked whether she was Jewish. After answering in the affirmative, Sebrow was told that "all Jews must die," and the driver then began driving "really fast" - so much so that she was afraid he would total the car, she stated. Sebrow, terrified,...

    Former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani’s statement about President Obama’s lack of love for America has set off a firestorm of denunciation. Giuliani has been accused of racism, and he has even received death threats. Defenders of Obama have evoked everything from his grandfather’s (on his mother’s side) service in World War II to the two years Giuliani’s father served in Sing Sing to prove either that Obama does love America or that Giuliani has no standing to issue such criticism. The ranting has obscured the reasons why so many Americans take Giuliani’s remarks to heart. Starting with his June...

I quickly read the piece and nodded to myself. Not only did Rudy have the communist right, but he even had Obamas exact age (nine) right when he was first introduced to the communist.

    The New York Times kept on its old Rudy the Racist beat, using the former New York City mayor's recent remarks suggesting President Obama doesn't love America to attack him for "aligning more squarely with the hard right" in a front-page story Saturday, "In Remarks on President, Giuliani to the Core" by Alexander Burns (pictured) and Maggie Haberman (who previously filed the Burns & Haberman campaign blog on Politico.) The Times has long specialized in calling out Giuliani, whose mayoralty it strongly opposed, as racially "incendiary." In 2009 it let then-City Councilman (and current NYC mayor) Bill de Blasio say...

    For those who first dialed into Rudolph W. Giuliani during his Americas mayor phase, right after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks when he wowed the world with his civic leadership, soaring oratory and unifying largess the former New York mayors racially charged comments about President Obama might seem puzzling.

    Meanwhile, Walker, a leading Republican contender for the White House in 2016, said Saturday that he doesn't know whether Obama loves his country. 'You should ask the president what he thinks about America,' the Wisconsin governor told The Associated Press while in Washington for a weekend meeting of governors. 'I've never asked him so I don't know.' Democrats have assailed Giuliani for questioning the Democratic president's love of country, and they urged the potential field of Republican presidential candidates to rebuke Giuliani for his comments. Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, another possible 2016 candidate, said he didn't think 'it helps to...

    He showed up unannounced and was initially not even invited, but he was prepared all the same. Rudolph W. Giuliani, the former mayor of New York and one-time Republican presidential hopeful, stepped to the microphone at the 21 Club in Manhattan on Wednesday, for an event ostensibly spotlighting Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin. But by suggesting that President Obama did not love his country, Mr. Giuliani became the story. His remarks, seemingly out of the blue, were not an isolated outburst....

    Rudy Giuliani is in the stocks for saying that he does not believe that President Barack Obama loves America. He said this at a small, private dinner for Scott Walker, who probably will not be inviting Giuliani to very many events in the near future. Giuliani went on to say that he wasnt questioning the presidents patriotism angels and ministers of grace defend us! only noting that the presidents rhetoric is decidedly low-cal on the American exceptionalism but full-fat when it comes to criticism. It may be the case that the president is a practitioner of the Smokey...

    LAKE PLACID, N.Y. (AP) -- Thirty-five years after the U.S. Olympic hockey team's stunning gold medal at the Lake Placid Winter Olympics, the once-fuzzy-faced heroes are being feted for their signature accomplishment. Every surviving member of the hockey team is coming back for a "Relive the Miracle" reunion on Saturday night at Herb Brooks Arena, the hockey rink on Main Street they made famous with one of the most memorable upsets in sports history. Missing will be Brooks, the Hall of Fame coach who was killed in a car accident in 2003, and rugged defenseman Bob Suter, who died...

    The New York Times has devoted enormous resources to covering this controversy - more than 40 articles, including a 5,200-word piece by three-time Pulitzer Prize winner Walt Bogdanich -- probing the legal processes that have cleared Winston. But the newspapers coverage has been characterized by the same selective and agenda-driven presentation of the facts it faults Florida authorities for exhibiting. The accuser, anonymous until last month, has now publicly identified herself and told her story in The Hunting Ground. Her name is Erica Kinsman. In her version of events, she was not only raped by Winston but also mistreated by...

The latest bit of stupid comes from New York state senator Tony Avella, who has decided that New York needs to ban machetes. No, Im not kidding. Get a load at this tool.
