  • The Tragedy of Saudi Arabia's War

    The New York Times ^ | 10/26/18 | Declan Walsh, Tyler Hicks
    One hope for Yemenis is that the international fallout from the death of the Saudi dissident, Jamal Khashoggi, which has damaged Prince Mohammed’s international standing, might force him to relent in his unyielding prosecution of the war. Peter Salisbury, a Yemen specialist at Chatham House, said that was unlikely. “I think the Saudis have learned what they can get away with in Yemen — that western tolerance for pretty bad behavior is quite high,” he said. “If the Khashoggi murder tells us anything, it’s just how reluctant people are to rein the Saudis in.”

    NY Post ^ | March 20, 2018 | Carl Campanile
    Former City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, an openly gay supporter of Gov. Andrew Cuomo, called Cynthia Nixon an “unqualified lesbian” a day after the actress announced she’s going to challenge the governor in a primary. In an interview with The Post, Quinn also denounced Nixon for endorsing Bill de Blasio over her in the 2013 Democratic primary for mayor. “I’m surprised by this race. It’s a flight of fancy on her part,” Quinn said of Nixon’s announcement Monday that she would take on Cuomo in September’s Democratic primary. “Cynthia Nixon was opposed to having a qualified lesbian become mayor of...

    Ana Navarro is a bitter, pro-amnesty Bush hack who can’t handle the fact that Donald Trump not only won the presidency, but completely destroyed the Bush dynasty and any future in politics for Bush and their lackeys. Christine Quinn is a butch liberal New Yorker who ran for Mayor of NYC and failed to Communist Bill de Blasio. Both Ana Navarro and Christine Quinn were reduced to screamer at Kayleigh McEnany and Jeffrey Lord.

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    And people have been worrying whether the Trump administration would conduct itself in a mature manner? . . . On CNN this morning, Christine Quinn—former NYC Council Speaker and a Hillary surrogate—used childish antics in an attempt to silence conservative radio talk show host Ben Ferguson on the subject of sanctuary cities. At one point [1:46 in video], Quinn raised her hand and angrily yelled “ah, ba-ba-ba-ba!” to shut Ferguson down. It was the most churlish display by a political pundit this Insurrectionist can remember. Ferguson took it all in stride, smiling wryly through Quinn’s antics. View the video here.

    During a heated CNN interview on Wednesday night, Donald Trump surrogate Kayleigh McEnany questioned the appearance of Omar Mateen's father at a Hillary Clinton rally earlier this week. When McEnany questioned liberal Christine Quinn on the incident, Quinn screamed “Wait a minute, no!… You can’t ask me a question!” “‘Because you can’t answer the question,” McEnay said. Quinn shouted back, “Oh! You can’t ask me a question, honey, I can’t answer!” McEnany complied with Quinn's demands. "What attracted the father of the Orlando terrorist to your candidate?" she asked. "He's a mentally ill individual!" Quinn said. McEnany then concluded that...
  • Bill de Blasio’s Other Party: How the Working Families party took over New York City

    National Review ^ | 01/15/2014 | John Fund
    As recently as 1998, New York State’s Republican party controlled the governorship, a United States Senate seat, and the mayor’s office in Manhattan. Today, it is greatly diminished, with its sole beachhead of influence in the state senate, where it shares a majority with four independent Democrats. In contrast, the Working Families party (WFP), a 15-year-old left-wing, union-fueled group with just 20,000 members, now holds the whip hand over much of the dominant Democratic party in New York — and is already spreading its wings to other states. The WFP not only was a major force behind Bill de Blasio’s...

    If the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) stuck to its stated mission statement and only did civil rights work protecting Muslim Americans from discrimination and bigotry, you likely would never see it mentioned on this site.But CAIR has a second, perhaps more paramount objective that it never directly acknowledges: To oppose Israel and promote Palestinian nationalism.CAIR’s mission statement makes no mention of Palestine. Instead, it says it aims to “enhance understanding of Islam, protect civil rights, promote justice, and empower American Muslims.” It describes its lobbying arm as focusing “on issues related to Islam and Muslims. The department monitors legislation and government activities and responds...

    CNN goes into typical leftist “downplay” mode. On Friday, just days after 11 people were murdered in a Pittsburgh synagogue, New York City , for vandalizing a New York synagogue with anti-Semitic messages. “Die Jew rats we are here,” read one message, along with “Jews better be ready,” and “Hitler.” The next day, CNN failed to report that Polite, 26, was a Democrat activist who had worked on the Obama campaign in 2008.  CNN described him as a “Brooklyn man” arrested and charged with a hate crime for the anti-Semitic messages and “criminal mischief and making graffiti.” Other reports found...

    A 26-year-old man charged with vandalizing a historic New York City synagogue on Friday, just days after the Pittsburgh massacre, has been identified as a former campaign worker for Barack Obama who was profiled by the New York Times in 2017. The Times described James Polite as a young man who “spent much of his childhood in foster care,” and performed canvassing work for Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign. After a chance meeting, he got a job that year as an intern for Christine Quinn, a former speaker of New York City’s city council who was also a former mayoral candidate....

    Former President Barack Obama has had a hard time staying focused on the campaign trail lately. While stumping in Miami, Florida, with Sen. Bill Nelson, D-FL, and Florida Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum, the former president tried his best to deliver a home run speech before Tuesday’s midterm elections. In less than 90 seconds, Obama defended Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server to send and receive classified information, downplayed the severity of the Ebola virus, defended the migrant caravan trekking north toward the U.S., and attacked President Donald Trump.

    Is there anything more pathetic than an ex-president, who ought to be writing his memoirs and establishing a genuine presidential library for the study of his administration, is instead campaigning at a midterm like he's still running for president? Well, here he is, President Obama, making a fool of himself: Vid at link As Drudge Report notes, citing American Mirror, his voice is actually cracking. Which I suppose happens when you campaign too much before half-empty stadiums and union halls. The man's time has passed, yet it's obvious he's desperate to still stay relevant, so now he's sounding crazy.

    Netflix could soon face legal action from the Satanic Temple, a religious group that claims its copyrighted design of the deity Baphomet was used without permission in the The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. In Sabrina—the streaming service’s recently released, spooky rendition of Sabrina the Teenage Witch—the statue of a large goat-headed figure appears as Satan in a handful of episodes. A statue of this figure flanked by two children appears as a centerpiece in Sabrina’s school of witchcraft, the Academy of the Unseen Arts. According to Lucien Greaves, co-founder and spokesperson of the Satanic Temple, this statue appropriated the religion’s...

    Despite the United States recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in December and relocating its embassy from Tel Aviv in May, Americans born in Jerusalem are still unable to list “Jerusalem, Israel” on U.S. passports. “The president has made clear that the specific boundaries of Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem remain subject to final-status negotiations between the [Israelis and the Palestinians],” a State Department spokesperson told JNS. “We have not changed our practice regarding place of birth on passports or Consular Reports of Birth Abroad at this time.”

    Scott Kelly, a retired American astronaut with multiple space flights under his belt, apologized Sunday after quoting Winston Churchill and calling the 20th century British prime minister "one of the greatest leaders of modern times." "Did not mean to offend by quoting Churchill. My apologies. I will go and educate myself further on his atrocities, racist views which I do not support. My point was we need to come together as one nation. We are all Americans. That should transcend partisan politics," Kelly wrote on Twitter in the evening.

    A left-wing federal judge with a history of ruling against the Trump administration ruled against it again Friday by revoking its right to enforce federal immigration laws in California and demanding it funnel a total $28 million in unpaid grant money to “sanctuary cities” like San Francisco. The ruling by William Orrick concerned a decision by Attorney General Jeff Sessions last year to revoke funding from so-called “sanctuary cities” unless they began abiding my federal immigration laws.
