  • Obama to Visit Israel as Netanyahu Attempts to Form Coalition

    Breitbart ^ | 2/5/13 | William Bigelow
    After Benjamin Netanyahu won the Israeli election for Prime Minister in January, he and Obama spoke by phone and discussed the possibility of Obama visiting. Obama will travel to Judea and Samaria (the West Bank) before travelling to Jordan during his time in the region. National Security Council Spokesman Tommy Vietor said: The start of the president's second term and the formation of a new Israeli government offer the opportunity to reaffirm the deep and enduring bonds between the United States and Israel and to discuss the way forward on a broad range of issues of mutual concern, including Iran...
  • Obama’s ‘Investment’ Non-Strategy: Spending more on education won’t drive economic growth.

    National Review ^ | 02/06/2013 | Jonah Goldberg
    Not long after President Obama proclaimed in his second inaugural that “an economic recovery has begun,” we learned that the U.S. economy actually shrank in the last quarter. Many economists believe this is a temporary setback. This recovery may be the weakest in American history, but the economy isn’t cratering either. Still, you can bet that if the economy continues to contract, Obama will propose the same remedy he always has: more “investments” in education, infrastructure, and various industries of the future. It seems that whatever the ailment, Dr. Obama always writes the same prescription. This is hardly shocking: Building...

    Acting Knesset head Binyamin (Fouad) Ben-Eliezer has asked Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to urge United States President Barack Obama to address the Knesset during his upcoming visit to Israel. “The nation of Israel definitely thirsts to hear the United States President speak to them directly,” he argued. “There is no more appropriate venue than the Knesset for the U.S. President to speak.” “I believe that this act, of a direct address to Israel in the Knesset assembly… during this visit, specifically, would carry tremendous importance,” he added. MK Reuven Rivlin, speaker of the last Knesset, agreed. “The Knesset is the...

    The odds are against Senate Democrats this cycle. But, of course, they were against the party two years ago at this time, and Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Executive Director Guy Cecil didn’t merely beat the odds — he slaughtered them. This time, Democrats face better prospects of holding onto their Senate majority next November than they did two years ago (after all, they begin with 55 seats instead of 53), but a net loss looks inevitable and a big loss is quite possible. Cecil, who is back for a return engagement this cycle, has his work cut out for him....

    Washington Examiner ^ | 2/5/13 | Joel Gehrke
    President Obama and the Department of Homeland Security care more about “special interests” in the Democratic campaign base than the lives of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers, the ICE union boss told Congress today. “Death or serious injury to ICE officers and agents appears more acceptable to ICE, DHS, and Administration leadership, than the public complaints that would be lodged by special interest groups representing illegal aliens,” Chris Crane, president of the National Immigration and Customs Enforcement 118, told the House Judiciary Committee this afternoon. Crane based that statement on the way government policies handcuff the ICE officers charged...

    Dan from Squirrel Hill's Blog Obama unconstitutionally used U.S. military to kill teenage U.S. citizen who was born in Denver The U.S. Constitution prohibits the government from killing U.S. citizens without due process. This means that they must first be arrested, charged, tried, and convicted before being executed.Obama violated this when he used the U.S. military to kill a teenage U.S. citizen who was born in Denver. Obama also killed two other U.S. citizens without due process.If Bush had done this, the “anti-war” protestors would have been livid. But since they were actually “anti-Bush” protestors and not “anti-war” protestors, they don’t...

  • About Obama's "skeet shooting" photo..

    I really couldn't care less if Obama shot skeet or not. The photo released by the White House shows that this is probably the first time this man has ever fired a shotgun, much less shot a round of skeet. However, it does show something blatantly obvious - he doesn't appear to be standing at a shooting station at the Camp David skeet range. Below is a photo from the UK Daily Mail of the Camp David skeet range. See any differences? http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2013/02/02/article-2272417-174E1F37000005DC-87_634x446.jpg

    Today came news that (1) John Kerry made lengthy phone calls to Israeli and Palestinian leaders even before starting work at the State Department on Monday and (2) President Obama will visit Israel in March or April. No one should doubt that, as in Obama’s first term, brow-beating Israel into making concessions to the Palestinians will form the core of the Obama-Kerry outreach. As Groucho Marx said, in Horse Feathers, when explaining why he was offering a pep talk to the opposing team, “my team won’t listen to me.” The Palestinians don’t listen to Obama; Israel must, to some degree....

    In November 2011, President Obama lamented that “some in Congress are trying to undo these automatic spending cuts” that were part of that August’s deal to raise the debt limit. “My message to them is simple: No. I will veto any effort to get rid of those automatic spending cuts to domestic and defense spending. There will be no easy off ramps on this one.” Now, it’s Obama who is looking for an off ramp. With the automatic spending cuts about to go into effect, the Associated Press reports, “President Barack Obama will ask Congress to come up with tens...

    The Week ^ | February 4, 2013 | Marc Ambinder
    A Justice Department memorandum apparently prepared for Congress lays out for the first time the criteria that the national security establishment uses to decide whether to kill an American who is a senior al Qaeda leader or the the leader of one of its operational arms. Honors go to NBC's Mike Isikoff for the score. The memo has no classification markings on it, which tells me that it is a distillation from a larger, probably classified document prepared by the Office of Legal Counsel at the Department of Justice. Generally, the executive branch keeps secrets in one of two of...

    WASHINGTON—Iran formally agreed to resume stalled talks with global powers aimed at curbing Tehran's nuclear program, offering the Obama administration's new national-security team a shot at resolving one of the world's most intractable security challenges. U.S. and European officials said Tuesday they would use the new talks, which are scheduled to begin Feb. 26 in Almaty, Kazakhstan, to offer a slightly revised package of economic incentives. In exchange, Tehran would have to agree to ship its growing stockpile of near weapons-grade nuclear fuel out of the country. snip The talks will be an early test for President Barack Obama's new...

    President Obama blows through his own political capital just as fast as he blows through America’s financial capital. Neither case of over-spending is sustainable, and we will just have to wait to see which spending spree is forced to end first. But this further confirms my suspicion that President Obama’s brains are the most over-rated to occupy the Oval Office in generations. Take his recent nominations, which are a mess.

    George Zimmerman was back in court today for a hearing on the start date for his trial on murder charges. Zimmerman, of course, was the Hispanic neighborhood watchman in Sanford, Florida, who trailed a young black man named Trayvon Martin after calling 911, got into an altercation with Martin in which Martin ended up pounding Zimmerman’s head into the pavement, and then ended up shooting Martin in the chest. The media used the Zimmerman case as an opportunity to bully Americans over their supposed racial intolerance. Even the President of the United States weighed in in the midst of an...

    Energy Secretary Steven Chu, who came to the White House leading a push for green energy, but got snarled by the Solyndra bankruptcy, announced his plan to resign on Friday. Chu wrote a long explanation of his decision to Energy Department employees. In the letter Chu seemed to begin by defending his tenure against critics who decried the loans made to the solar company Solyndra under his watch. “…I believe we should be judged not by the money we direct to a particular State or district, company, university or national lab, but by the character of our decisions.” Chu laid...

    For the first time in 17 years, 15 of those sitting on the Washington Supreme Court, I have agreed to represent a private citizen. And I am pleased to lend Linda Jordan a helping hand. In good faith Ms. Jordan commenced an action to question President Obama's name on the ballot. She did the best she could with limited resources and no legal training. The government's response was immediate and in some respects heavy handed. Having obtained a summary dismissal of her case, and then her appeal, the attorney general went further to demand the Secretary of State be reimbursed,...

  • The Most Wanted Gun in America (NY Times article on the AR)

    THE phone rings again at Pasadena Pawn and Gun, and a familiar question comes down the line: “Got any ARs?” The answer is no. Pasadena Pawn and Gun, a gun retailer and pawnshop 15 miles south of Baltimore, is pretty much sold out of America’s most wanted gun, the AR-15-style semiautomatic rifle. Since the massacre in Newtown, Conn., in December, the AR-15, the military-style weapon that the police say was used in the shootings, has been selling fast here and across the nation. Before Newtown, the rifles sold for about $1,100, on average. Now some retailers charge twice that. At...
