  • Israel wants someone to build a $5 billion island off Gaza — for a seaport, hotels, airport

    06/20/2016 11:52:21 AM PDT · by BenLurkin · 24 replies
    The Israeli government is considering a proposal to build an artificial island off the Gaza Strip that a top official says would give Palestinians living in the besieged enclave their one and only seaport — and maybe a hotel and an international airport, too. The Israeli minister of intelligence who is promoting the plan, Israel Katz, said the Jewish state is actively seeking financial partners for the $5 billion project. Katz mentioned the Saudis and Chinese as possible builders of the port — or maybe a mysterious Israeli entrepreneur. He declined to name names. ... He said the plan is...

This is one of those things that must be read to be believed, and no, this was not found in The Onion, amazingly.

    Breitbart.com ^ | 13 May 2016 | Joel B. Pollak
    Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has denied that the social media giant censors news from conservative outlets — and says he wants to meet with “leading conservatives” to discuss the issue. A report earlier this month by Gizmodo alleged that Facebook “routinely” suppressed conservative news in its “trending news” feature, even when stories from conservative sites were being circulated widely by Facebook users. The report also alleged that Facebook “injected” more acceptable stories, such as coverage of the left-wing Black Lives Matter movement. Facebook denied the allegations. In a Facebook post Thursday evening, Zuckerberg reiterated that denial, and said he plans...

    05/04/2016 10:24:37 AM PDT · by RoosterRedux · 47 replies
    Seasoned Republican operative Ed Rollins is making his debut in Donald Trump's presidential bid. Rollins, who was Ronald Reagan's 1984 campaign manager, spoke on a conference call Wednesday with supporters of Great America, a super PAC that backs Trump. Rollins has signed on as a strategist for the group. Rollins says the super PAC aims to help offset what he sees as a huge financial advantage for likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. "They're licking their chops," Rollins says of Clinton's team. "They think they're going to win this thing." Great America will likely conduct polls, collect opposition research and run...

Friedlander had tried to explain that for Jews, Moses is considered the most important biblical figure, and more important than the patriarchs, because he brought the law to the Jews. “Moses is up there,” Friedlander said, as Kasich, an Anglican who was born Roman Catholic,...

    Former Obama White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, now a political commentator for CNN, casually admitted that, yes, his party uses race to convince minorities that Republicans seek to oppress them. Before the midterm election, Carney said: "Republicans are going to pick up seats in the Senate and the House, and they may win control of the Senate. So (Democrats) need to mobilize their base voters, and that is especially true of minority voters."

    Comedy has many approaches and subjects: leaders, governments, things we don't understand. In the vein of the latter, I suppose it is understandable to pick on religions. In any event, freedom of speech allows it. What is generally not condoned, however, is continuous and repeated sweeping insults to those with a differing point of view. The worst forms of prejudice and racism are bred out of this type of one-sided banter. Blacks in this country were never given the chance to defend themselves against claims of being less intelligent than whites during the time of slavery. Jews and non-Aryans were...

    I am not sure that victory in Afghanistan is possible. I don't say this lightly, or as any denigration of our outstanding military and their commanders. I don't even really fault our political establishment, arrogant, ignorant and clueless as they are. It's just that it is impossible to import modern, western civilization into a society that is very content in the fourteenth century. As long as the vast majority of the Afghan population is ultimately ruled by village mullahs, centuries old tribal bloodfeuds and ancient interpretations of sharia, then we might as well just call it a draw and pack...

    If you had any doubt that Miss California, Carrie Prejean, lost the crown, if indeed she ever had a chance to win it, with her answer to Perez Hilton's question about states legalizing gay marriage, then read fellow judge Alicia Jacobs' account of her voting. After hearing the answer, Jacobs, a former Miss Nevada USA, writes on her blog, "if I could have made her 51st runner-up, I would have." In a blog item titled "Pretty is as pretty does," Jacobs offers a behind-the-scenes account of the judges and pageant officials involved. Included is Jacobs' account of her reaction as...

Hilton, inexplicably serving as a judge for the Miss USA contest, asked Miss California, Carrie Prejean, whether she supported the legalization of gay marriage. Prejean respectfully answered: “I think that I believe that a...
