    I am not able to monitor the forums constantly and have not seen one comment from Pelosi, Hillary, Schumer, Waters, Obama, etc.,etc. The only one I have found is from McShame. Have any of the major Dims commented on the memo after the release today?

    Arutz Sheva ^ | 20/12/17 | Eliran Aharon
    Prof. Efraim Inbar, president of the Jerusalem Institute for Strategic Studies, told Arutz Sheva on Tuesday that the Palestinian Authority (PA) will eventually have to accept the United States’ recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. "This is an important declaration, because the president of the most important country in the world says that he recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, a courageous step that should be praised," he said, adding that the declaration sends an important message to the PA. "The Palestinians do not like this declaration because they want all of Jerusalem and maybe even more. As far...
  • What Trump’s Decision on Jerusalem Means for Israel and the Middle East

    The Daily Signal ^ | December 6, 2017 | James Phillips
    President Donald Trump on Wednesday kept his campaign promise to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and ordered the State Department to make plans to eventually move the U.S. Embassy there from Tel Aviv. The long-delayed, symbolic move addressed a historic injustice: Israel is the only country in the world not allowed to choose its own capital. Trump also exercised America’s sovereign right to recognize the capital of a close ally and choose the location of its own embassy. In recent years, the refusal of many nations to acknowledge Jerusalem as Israel’s capital has become an integral part of the international...
  • Is "reactionary" a communist word?

    07/23/2017 5:49:49 AM PDT · by ProgressingAmerica · 9 replies
    Generally speaking, if someone is running into a litany or a rant and denouncing you as a reactionary, that person is probably a communist. That is, in the 21st century. But what if the year is 1912? "Reactionary" is a word that statists of all stripes love to use, even those who do not behold the Communist viewpoint. In a speech denouncing the GOP, the DNC, and anybody else who he didn't like, Theodore Roosevelt said the following: I merely want to discuss the difference of policy between the Progressive and the Democratic Party and to ask you to think...

    The first reaction to KDP’s referendum decision came from the Turkish state as expected. The Turkish Foreign Ministry’s statement on the issue threatened KDP and said, “We won’t allow for faits accompli” and “It would be a historic mistake”. The first reaction to KDP Leader Masoûd Barzani deciding on a date for the “independence referendum” came from their “ally” Turkey. The Turkish Foreign Ministry issued a written statement that threatened KDP and said, “it would be a historic mistake”. The Turkish Foreign Ministry’s statement also protested the Kurdistan Region flag in official institutions in Kirkuk and said, “We won’t allow...

    Again and again, I have seen articles and posts that decry how 'horrible', 'frightening', and whatever negative descriptor you can find about how President Trump is going to destroy our nation. We have all seen the articles, posts, and videos of loony Lefties acting out their insane displeasure. We have also seen articles and videos of some who desire to "take actions" to get him out of office. They're literally willing to try whatever they think will work. From Keith Olbermann and his plea for Vice President Pence and Trump's own Cabinet to remove him from office via the 25th...
  • WATCH: An Israeli ‘Settler’ Responds to Kerry’s Speech

    01/04/2017 6:15:18 AM PST · by Eleutheria5 · 10 replies
    What does an Israeli “settler” who lives in Judea and works in Jerusalem think about Kerry’s speech? Daniel Luria is a resident of Ma’ale Adumim, a city of 40,000 people in Judea – barely three miles from the Israeli capital. He works in eastern Jerusalem. According to Kerry, Luria’s residence and workplace are located in “occupied territory” that belongs to the Palestinians. Luria expressed disbelief at the “historical ignorance” of US Secretary of State John Kerry’s speech last week at the State Department. According to Kerry, Luria’s residence and workplace are located in “occupied territory” that belongs to the Palestinians....
  • Mitch McConnell has gone silent on Donald Trump as Senate hangs in balance

    10/25/2016 5:21:19 AM PDT · by tekrat · 53 replies
    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has never had much to say about Donald Trump. But lately, he has fallen completely silent. On the few occasions when the Republican leader has appeared publicly in his home state of Kentucky this month, he’s either avoided answering reporters’ questions, or explicitly refused to address the topic he acknowledged was on everyone’s mind: His party’s presidential nominee. At a local Chamber of Commerce event in Danville, McConnell twice instructed the crowd not to ask him about the presidential race “even though that’s what I know you all wanted me to talk about.”

    .........Earlier this week, [Obama] waded into state politics, sharply denouncing Walker for signing legislation in Wisconsin that prohibited mandatory union dues. "Even as its governor claims victory over working Americans, I'd encourage him to try and score a victory for working Americans - by taking meaningful action to raise their wages and offer them the security of paid leave," Obama said in a statement. In both instances, he signaled he was not going to entirely ignore the 2016 contest or its main players if there was an opportunity to advance his own agenda. "We're going to engage in this dynamic...

    First let's start off with RINO McCain! Can you even call him a RINO anymore? He's just a damned traitor is what he is! His constituents just LOVED it! Marco Rubio will be voted out of office and he will probably never be able to be elected again. How about Senator Mark Pryor? The MOST vulnerable Dem Senator in a Red State. Notice the only 1 or 2 people who are "for" what he did are hispanic (probably illegal) How about Jeff FLAKE? Emphasis on FLAKE!!! Because he FLAKED out! If I were considering opposing any of these individuals for...

    The Wizard of Oz song at the centre of an anti-Margaret Thatcher campaign will not be played in full on the Official Chart Show. Instead a five second clip of the 51-second song will be aired as part of a Newsbeat report, Radio 1 controller Ben Cooper has said. Sales of Ding Dong! The Witch is Dead have soared since the former Prime Minister's death on Monday, aged 87. Mr Cooper called the decision "a difficult compromise". The song is set to take the number three spot in Sunday's countdown, according to the Official Charts Company.

    Examiner ^ | 4/9/13 | David Codrea
    Margaret Thatcher was “barbaric” and “a terror.” She “hated the arts … hated the English poor [and] hated Greenpeace and environmental protectionists.” That’s the pronouncement of singer Morrisey, who has also come up with such astute political assessments as “If more men were homosexual, there would be no wars, because homosexual men would never kill other men, whereas heterosexual men love killing other men.” That’s certainly debatable. Morrisey is hardly alone in hating someone he brands a hater. A Labour candidate expressed disappointment Thatcher hadn’t been killed in a 1984 hotel bombing. And leftist politician George Galloway, who bears the...

    The key to understanding Barack Hussein Obama is that he does nothing. This proposition is at the heart of a grave misapprehension of this Presidency. An American might be forgiven for feeling that a contribution to the common good is based on performance; productivity, some meaningful place in a functioning enterprise that fulfills one and contributes to the furtherance of some cause, or to one’s family and thus to God. What we cannot be forgiven for is continually attempting to apply this now remarkable cultural artifact; this mindset, to this Presidency. For example, the airwaves resonate as the right-wing talkers...

    The first 2012 Presidential debate took place on Wednesday night, with President Obama facing off against challenger Mitt Romney. The exchange, moderated by Jim Lehrer, elicited a range of responses from celebrities on Twitter — some serious, some humorous and all of them entirely debatable. And while the candidates disagreed on several issues, it seems the viewers at home all agreed that Lehrer wasn’t up to the job of moderating. Check out what Hollywood stars are saying: Piers Morgan: Maybe time to come on my show, Mr President? Romney’s done it three times, clearly sharpened his debating skills. Alec Baldwin:...

    At least three people were hurt on Friday as dozens of armed terrorists, affiliated with the Salafi movement of Islam, stormed the international peacekeeping force base in the Sinai Peninsula, near the Gaza-Israel border. They were protesting the controversial film mocking the prophet Mohammed which has resulted in protests throughout the Arab world. Channel 10 News cited reports in the Egyptian media which said the Muslims broke into the base and torched it. The report quoted one senior official as having told the Egyptian newspaper Al-Youm Al-Saba that shots were fired from within the base at firefighters who came to...

    I know that President Obama is cool, and everybody just loves him personally. But, does it ever seem as if he's going out of his way to poke his finger in your eye? Not that you'd mind, of course. Well, it turns out you're most probably right. Rule for Radicals #10 (no, I'm not joking) is "The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition." The dark lord of discord, Saul Alinsky, explains: [quote] It is this unceasing pressure that results in the reactions from the opposition that are essential...

    To see what the market thinks of the economic prospects for the economy look no farther than the 30 Year which just dropped below 4.00% and is trading at 3.99% right now. The market is effectively pricing in a major economic contraction, with long-end deflation now expected. Which means that Bernanke just got yet another carte blanche to proceed with the only thing he know. And validating it is the equity market which at last check not only did not react favorably to the Senate vote, but has been fading all the news all day, and is now trading at...
