  • Will Congress Investigate Attempt to Derail Bibi?

    The Jewish Press ^ | 1/23/13 | Lori Lowenthal Marcus
    Dan Senor, American author of Start Up Nation and former adviser to U.S. presidential candidate Mitt Romney, sent out an electrifying message on Israel’s election day, January 22, claiming that two U.S. officials in Israel quietly conceded that President Obama’s statements to Atlantic columnist Jeffrey Goldberg were an intentional effort to hurt Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu in the election. If what Senor claims is true, and President Obama was attempting to influence the Israeli election, it is possible that it could become the subject of a congressional investigation. The statements at issue were revealed in an article Goldberg wrote...

    The Overstated Inaugural Address Artur Davis The consensus about Barack Obama’s inaugural address is right. It was the most fulsome presidential defense of liberalism we have heard since 1965, and the most programmatically specific inaugural speech since the 1930s. This was also the rhetoric of a partisan who believes his opponents are losers and fools who won’t have much threat left in them 10 years from now. But before liberals feel too deep a thrill, they should consider the following proposition: Obama’s words will be paired with a second term resume that could be the thinnest since Richard Nixon. Given...

    The Washington Post ^ | 1-23-13 | Harold Meyerson
    There is an Obama majority in American politics, symbolized by Monday’s throng on the Mall, whose existence is both the consequence of profound changes to our nation’s composition and values and the cause of changes yet to come. That majority, as the president made clear in his remarks, would not exist but for Americans’ struggles to expand our foundational belief in the equality of all men. The drive to expand equality, he said in his speech’s most historically resonant line, “is the star that guides us still, just as it guided our forebears through Seneca Falls and Selma and Stonewall.”...

    Try 'better than George Washington' for  'for bringing America out of debt...' Yeah, you gotta think BIG when you're talking about a President so frickin pluperfect that the American form of government -which allows an opposition to exist- simply isn't worthy, serving precious little purpose anymore but preventing us from reaching prog nirvana. That kind of 'thinking' is the basis for those who feel Obama's WAY too soft on the Republicans and should probably just go-ahead and lock 'em all up- then shred the Constitution right now and rewrite it himself.  Oh, and btw, anybody who doesn't want to pay 55% income tax...

    PBS' Frontline program on Tuesday night broadcast a new one-hour report on one of the greatest and most shameful failings of the Obama administration: the lack of even a single arrest or prosecution of any senior Wall Street banker for the systemic fraud that precipitated the 2008 financial crisis: a crisis from which millions of people around the world are still suffering. What this program particularly demonstrated was that the Obama justice department, in particular the Chief of its Criminal Division, Lanny Breuer, never even tried to hold the high-level criminals accountable. What Obama justice officials did instead is exactly...

    ... The hearing room is packed with observers and news agencies from the United States and abroad. Pennsylvania Sen. Bob Casey, also a Democrat, also sits on the committee. Four Americans, including ambassador Chris Stevens, died in the attacks. Republicans have strongly questioned the Obama administration’s response, particularly comments from U.N. ambassador Susan Rice that at one point attributed the attacks to a spontaneous demonstration. Menendez praised Clinton’s candor and cooperation in his opening statement, shortly after 9 a.m. Speaking of those killed, he said, “We honor their service to our nation and we grieve with their families, but...

    Never has one live television event held the potential to enrage a nation, destroy a sitting president, disqualify an aspiring President and delegitimize a malignant, corrupted media industry than the testimony of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton before Congress, today. Prior to this public hearing, Good Morning America will have spent more time interviewing Honey Boo-Boo during one show, than all network news stations, combined (excluding Fox News) have spent discussing the details surrounding the murder of a U.S. Ambassador and three other Americans in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11, 2012. The last murder of a U.S. Ambassador occurred in...

    And Obama's advisor (Jarrett) went on to compare the current president with Abraham Lincoln. "I think you can't compare the Civil War to what we're going through," she said. "But we've been through a really tough time in our country. And seeing how Lincoln had to work so hard just to make the progress that he did, how he never gave up, and how resilient he was, and [how] he tried a whole range of different strategies. And I think obviously that resonated with the president. And so it kind of reaffirmed what he already knew, which is you have...

    How long has it been since we heard anything about the Keystone Pipeline? It's been months since it was in the news, with President Obama declining to approve the original route, due to environmental concerns (is there any other reason?) and saying more study needed to be done on the alternate routes that had been proposed. All of those excuses ended yesterday with the final approval of Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman for the new route. Governor Heineman has even sent a letter to President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, asking them to expedite their approval of the Keystone...

    A centerpiece of President Obama's second inaugural address was a call for greater economic equality, with the president saying that "our country cannot succeed when a shrinking few do very well and a growing many barely make it." But that's precisely what's happened over the past four years, as Obama's economic policies left the majority of Americans falling behind while the wealthy few got further ahead. Evidence of this is everywhere you look.

They're celebrating because they think the Republicans have given up, and they're right. Everybody's giving up. My impression is that everybody is giving up and they're waiting for events that nobody can predict to maybe change the direction that we're headed; events that nobody can predict that will stop Obama in his tracks; events that'll happen that will wake people up. The sense I get is that there's no point...

    The one thing that President Obama and the National Rifle Association seem to agree on is that the U.S. needs to develop a more effective firearms policy. Over the past month, both sides have offered suggestions: Obama has proposed a four-part plan to ban assault weapons, protect schools, implement background checks, and screen out mentally ill potential gun purchasers. As for the NRA, spokesman Wayne LaPierre proposed the "National Model School Shield Program," a plan to train teachers in the use of firearms and enlist volunteers to patrol school grounds. Both proposals have severe shortcomings: Obama's assumes the passage of...

    Gun Control: The president seeks a review of groups barred from gun ownership, while his attorney general asks the courts to keep hidden documents on running guns to drug lords sealed by executive privilege. Presumably the list of prohibited individuals include Mexican drug lords and their operatives who to this day continue to maim and murder with assault weapons and other semiautomatic firearms provided to them by this administration under the gun-running operation known as Fast and Furious. Attorney General Eric Holder has been tasked to review this list. Unfortunately, this representative of an administration that pretends to care about...

    Here is what Obama said: "We, the people, still believe that our obligations as Americans are not just to ourselves, but to all posterity. We will respond to the threat of climate change, knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations. Some may still deny the overwhelming judgment of science, but none can avoid the devastating impact of raging fires, and crippling drought, and more powerful storms. The path towards sustainable energy sources will be long and sometimes difficult. But America cannot resist this transition; we must lead it. We cannot cede to other...

    Obama played the gay card in his inaugural address. There is a lot of misconception about homosexuality. Frankly, most of what we hear is based in ignorance. Let’s get to the truth about this issue. This is a very brief summary of our article at http://www.faithfacts.org/christ-and-the-culture/gay-rights. In the original article we cite numerous scientific studies which we invite the reader to investigate. 1. What causes homosexuality? There is no scientific evidence to support the idea that homosexuality is genetic. All such studies that once purported to support that idea of a gay gene have been discredited. There are various factors,...

    Forty years ago today the Supreme Court rendered its Roe v. Wade decision. Those who believe in the sanctity of human life and long to see America embrace a culture in which innocent life is honored and protected continue to look for a day when humanity is again deemed valuable, where we cherish even those who would be born in “less than ideal circumstances.” Children are our most precious resource and remain the greatest symbol of hope God has given us. This is just one reason why the annual March for Life has been such a powerful aspect of the...
