  • Mike Bloomberg: I'm Flying To Tel Aviv Tonight Because The FAA Is Stupid

    Gothamist ^ | July 22, 2014 | Jen Chung
    Perhaps sensing a leadership vacuum with Mayor de Blasio enjoying la dolce vita overseas, former Mayor Bloomberg is back in the news. With an international message: He's traveling to Israel to blast the FAA's decision to ban flights to Israel. Earlier today, the FAA announced that flights to and from Tel Aviv would be prohibited for up to 24 hours after reports of a rocket strike landing about a mile from Ben Gurion this morning. Which prompted Bloomberg to plan a trip. He wrote on his website: This evening I will be flying on El Al to Tel Aviv to...

    Sally Quinn founded the “On Faith” section of The Washington Post, and she’s shown a repeated pattern of loathing conservative Christians, especially Sarah Palin. In Saturday’s , she went there again, trashing Sarah Palin as selfishly ruining our political culture, insisting she recommends a “long long silent retreat for her.” Rather typically, Quinn was cooing over a feminist Buddhist lecturer named Tara Brach: Brach quotes the spiritual teacher Swami Satchidananda as saying that the difference between illness and wellness is the I in illness and the We in wellness. What has been happening in politics in Washington lately is symptomatic...

    Define the lunacy of the liberal Reich? Politico, the flaming slingshot of Democrats across this nation, claimed in a double fit of Espresso rage that Rick Perry was sending troops to the border to kill children? That's right, not to stop thousands of undocumented illegals streaming into a sovereign state, dare I say country, without immunizations or permission, but to kill their innocent children in hopes no one would notice? After all, that's what modern day Republican Governors do in the information age…kill children to increase the value of Snapchat. Hmm, I'm confused, are we living beneath the propaganda banner...

    Location of Till Dawn Bottle Club at 8205 Dale Mabry Highway In this unusual case in Tampa, Florida, little is reported about possible motivations; but we can make informed speculations.  The facts are this.   A patron of the Till Dawn Bottle Club was thrown out of the club at about 3:30 a.m. He drove off in a Dodge Challenger, and subsequently rear ended a GMC Yukon that was being driven by a visitor from Pennsylvannia, Alexander Sierra, 27.  Alexander was accompanied by his brother and girl friend. They followed the Challenger until its driver lost control and hit a...

    On Friday July 18, a Pro-Palestinian demonstration took place in Calgary. The organizer of this event was the University of Calgary student club “Solidarity for Palestinian Human Rights” whose current president Ala’a Hamdan recently said “My body and soul are ready to fight and die,” and “This land will be proud that Palestinian babies are born men and women ready to spill their blood.” In a fictional battle hymn written to a son, Ms. Hamdan also wrote: “I will soak a koffiah with your blood and save it to show to your siblings ...

    TheBlaze Books ^ | 7/22/14 | Benjamin Weingarten
    In recent days the Weekly Standard and Washington Free Beacon have brought to light a now-scrubbed recommended reading list for students that had resided on Sen. Rand Paul’s website. Why the focus on a book list, and why was the book list scrubbed? The answer to the second question could lie in the answer to the first: the foreign policy recommendations in the reading list take a variety of controversial stances, suggesting that the U.S. is to blame for the rise of Islamic supremacism in the Middle East, that the “Israeli Lobby” controls U.S. foreign policy to America’s great detriment,...

From The Telegraph, "Emergency laws to monitor phone and internet records 'to stop terrorists'": Emergency laws will be brought in next week to force phone and internet companies to hold records of customers’ calls, texts and visits to websites. The fast-track measures are necessary to defend national security against the terrorist threat from Iraq and Syria, David Cameron said. The consequences of not acting are “grave”, the Prime Minister...

    Islam, the religion of death not peace, continues its winning streak. President Obama shows many signs of approval. An article posted by Daniel Greenfield at Front Page Magazine and republished at Warsclerotic is titled "Israel’s War with the Muslim Brotherhood." It makes a powerful case supporting this thesis: Israel has become a flashpoint in the region because it is the only place where an armed non-Muslim minority has been able to make a stand against Muslim genocide.  Israel has been fighting the forces of the Muslim Brotherhood in Gaza since right after the Holocaust. Its soldiers are fighting so that the same forces...

The White House says that it did not order the flights suspended, but Delta said it made its decision in coordination with the Federal Aviation Administration. Delta said it suspended service to and from its New York JFK hub "until further notice," while the Israel Airports Authority would only confirm that the carriers had suspended flight scheduled for Monday.

    I think the picture above was intended to be humorous. It's not. It really happened. Parents of wounded soldiers spoke to Kol Yisrael on Tuesday and shared some of the disturbing stories they had heard from their sons. They said soldiers have repeatedly seen young children in Sheijaya, Gaza, be sent out into the streets with guns to try to attack IDF troops. One parent reported that terrorists had run at IDF soldiers with a gun in one hand and a baby in the other, apparently in hopes that the soldiers would see the child and hold their fire....

    Mark Begich is the Democrat Senator from Alaska because the Democrats smeared the good name and reputation of Ted Stevens, the Republican who held the seat until 2008. Stevens was savaged by the Democrat controlled media and criminally charged with being corrupt. Although he was pretty much cleared before the election, the people of Alaska decided “better safe than sorry.” In Begich they got worse not better and plenty to be sorry about. Begich delivered not for Alaskans but for Barack Obama and Harry Reid when he joined in the sneaky Christmas Eve passage of a bill the Senate Democrats...

These are the questions one has to ask after reading Public Policy Polling’s (PPP) report on its survey of Mississippi voters on the U.S. Senate race between incumbent Republican Thad Cochran and Democrat challenger Travis Childers.

    The IDF spends hundreds of millions of dollars and untold thousands of man-hours on high-tech weapons and low-tech methods meant to ensure the absolute minimum of innocent lives lost in a conflict. Advanced visual systems, multiple layers of legal consultation, and even thousands of pamphlets - all designed to keep innocent people alive while targeting the terrorists hiding among them. But it turns out that the Jewish state could have saved lots of that money and time. Because Hamas and the other terrorists have the most sophisticated, advanced weapons known to man.

    The answer of course is that we no longer are one people. E pluribus unum is dead. The melting pot has been replaced with a toxic brew of “diversity”, of which our open borders policy - endorsed by members of both name brand parties—is one component that leads down the same path. The third world has arrived and it will be this nation’s future…unless Americans will get off their collective duffs and fight back. Some, in places such as Westminster, Maryland; Oracle, Arizona; Vassar, Michigan; Greece, New York are doing just that.

    Experts in the Middle East conflict expected to see a demand on Israel to liberate particular terrorists as a ransom for the kidnapped boys. Such exchanges have been typical of the past. But why not this time? The answer: Hamas wanted to entice Egypt into warfare with Israel in order to help the Muslim Brotherhood regain power in Egypt. Hamas had a broader agenda for the kidnappings, murders, and rocket fire into Israel. Its aggression stirred up pro-Palestinian, pro-Hamas opinion by Egypt’s politicians, journalists and media in order to put pressure on Al-Sisi’s new government to help the “oppressed” Gazans....

  • Affirmative Action In College Grading

    07/22/2014 4:30:55 AM PDT · by LeoMcNeil · 29 replies
    W. Lee Hansen, an economics professor at the University of Wisconsin, has argued for affirmative action in grading. The distribution of grades should be based on race rather than merit according to the professor. One imagines that a certain percentage of minority and female students would be required to get A’s regardless of whether they actually achieved an A grade. It is unclear whether the same is true at the bottom of the grading scale, though considering the purposes behind the professor’s proposal it’s unlikely. This sort of proposal isn’t just racist and sexist against white men. It’s racist and...

In this area the United States seems more progressive in the true, not socialist, sense, and less prepared to submit to cultural Marxism's oppressive demands. Hobby Lobby is a company owned by Christians. At issue was whether, according to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), better known as Obamacare, "closely held companies like Hobby Lobby could be...

    In this strange incident, little is said about why the intruder tried to force his way into the shooters home.   All that we know is that the homeowner drove into his garage, and the intruder drove a car behind the homeowner to prevent the garage door from closing.  A verbal altercation followed, then warning shots were fired, then the  intruder was shot. The authorities are investigating the incident, which they say stems from the rather ambiguous term "road rage". From the marinscope.com: The homeowner, a 71-year-old man, drove into his garage, and the other man tried to drive in behind...

    Obama Lies,” “Impeach Obama” signs were held high by protestors this weekend in the Make Them Listen nation ALIPAC demonstrations against the off-loading of illegal Central American migrant children into American towns and neighborhoods. At the West Palm Beach, FL I-95 overpass, a veteran wearing camo and combat boots held high a large white bullhorn and blasted out over the railings to southbound drivers how he felt about what Barack Obama is doing to the vet’s beloved America. As the bullhorn blared out chants, patriots lining Okeechobee Boulevard answered in cadence to calls to stop the dumping! Americans for Legal...

    At a press conference in Peoria for former congressman Bobby Schilling, new House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy stated that the House of Representatives will pass measures in the coming days and weeks that will help secure the southern border with Mexico and that the thousands of illegal immigrant families will be reunited. Estimates are that 57,000 unaccompanied illegal immigrant minors have entered the US in the last few months, many coming believing that the Obama administration won't deport them and will instead grant them amnesty, and that doesn't even include the much larger number of adult illegal immigrants that have...

    We’ve never had a “community organizer” as our President before. And we are seeing the disastrous consequences of putting this community organizer at the head of the most powerful nation in the world. He has taken the apparatus of government and used it solely to organize, or as he calls it, fundamentally transform, the nation into a characterization of his ideal world.

    It is no surprise that young people are enamored of communism. Their teachers have been indoctrinating them for years into the utopia of “social justice,” “environmental justice,” the “evil” middle class, and the spectacular equality for all as envisioned by Marx, Engels, and Lenin. Communism is “cool” in the land where wearing a Che Guevara t-shirt is a hypocritical political statement made while enjoying capitalist amenities. But we expect them to mature eventually and give up the absurdity that communism has not succeeded because the wrong people were in charge.
  • Terrorist supporters behind the ‘Israel must die, long live Palestine’ mobs

    While frightened little school children in Israel hide under their desks during Palestinian rocket attacks, street mobs in the rest of the world are chanting “Israel must die, long live Palestine” over and over again in raucous voices growing louder. With Israel under attack, Palestinian protesters in Paris, London and in North American cities like Chicago and Calgary took to the streets in clockwork fashion. The protesters never have to duck from physical harm. They count on total impunity in the democratic settings where they conduct their activism.
  • The reason why Israel destroyed the Hamas tunnels: they are perfect to launch a WMD attack

    one man's opinion...
    Israel has moved forces into the Gaza strip, in response to the thousands of rockets that Hamas has launched into Israel; and also to degrade the tunnel network under Israeli soil. Hamas terrorists have emerged from the tunnels to kill and/or kidnap Israeli civilians, and IDF troops. But I suspect there's another, more compelling reason.

    Don’t blame me, Blonde Gator started this last week with her pig poster:But that got me wondering: Do we all have super powers? Clearly BO does; sometimes he deploys them with nothing more than his phone. Other times, it’s just his pen. It’s awesome. Still, I remember not so long ago when he lamented being burdened with his super power: "It is a vital national security interest of the United States to reduce these conflicts because whether we like it or not, we remain a dominant military superpower, and when conflicts break out, one way or another we get pulled...

    Former President Bill Clinton said his wife Hillary Clinton needs time to think about her message to voters would be is she runs for president in 2016. She "really does need some time to think through this,” now that her memoir Hard Choices has been published, he said in an interview with CNN. "We've reached a point in our life when we think you really shouldn't run for office if you don't have a clear idea of what you can do and a unique contribution you can make and you can outline that," Clinton added. "Now that the book is...

  • Self-Described Liberal Feminist: Conservative Women Are Super Sexy

    Conservative women sexy, liberal women not so much? A British journalist who describes himself as a “liberal-lefty-pro-feminist” claims that politically conservative women are way more sexy than their left-wing counterparts. Writing in the London Spectator, Cosmo Landesman opines that right-wing women (and he specifically offered examples such as pundits Sarah Palin and Ann Coulter) are “super sexy” and that stereotypes and generalizations about conservative women in general being uptright or prudish are way out of date. He also argues that looks have nothing to do with it. Instead their attractiveness is about what he calls “a certain mindset and sensibility”...
