  • The Real Danger to Israel's Security Is Netanyahu

    Huffington Post ^ | 11/04/2014 | Alon Ben-Meir
    As prime minister, Netanyahu has consistently invoked his solemn duty to protect Israel's national security. Ironically, he has become the single most reckless individual who is imperiling the very security of the state. One need not look far and wide to discern Netanyahu's disingenuousness and misguided policies that have only undermined Israel's future security. He uses his political skills to deceive and mislead in order to "protect himself from political defeat" while disregarding what is best for the future of the state. He surrounds himself with cronies blinded by their skewed ideological zeal with no morals or scruples to support...

    Dear Dr. Eric R. Pianka I am writing to you in regards to the speech you made at the 109th meeting of the Texas Academy of Science at Lamar University in Beaumont on 3-5 March 2006 in which you advocated the reduction of the earths population by 90%. The idea of reducing the earths population by 90% has stimulated my mind and I wish to add the following thoughts on the issue: You said your favorite candidate for eliminating 90 percent of the world's population is airborne Ebola ( Ebola Reston ), because it is both highly lethal and it...

    Fifty years ago, on Sept. 7, 1964, a political ad called ďDaisyĒ aired on behalf of President Lyndon Johnson. The commercial opened with a little girl in a meadow, then a horrific nuclear blast filled the screen. Weíve been feeling the fallout ever since. It was only a minute long. The paid ad ran on national television only once, and only on one network, NBC. But thatís all it took.

    Several dozen U.S. Army active duty and reserve troops were told last week that the American Family Association, a well-respected Christian ministry, should be classified as a domestic hate group because the group advocates for traditional family values. The briefing was held at Camp Shelby in Mississippi and listed the AFA alongside domestic hate groups like the Ku Klux Klan, Neo-Nazis, the Black Panthers and the Nation of Islam. A soldier who attended the briefing contacted me and sent me a photograph of a slide show presentation that listed AFA as a domestic hate group. Under the AFA headline is...

    When Benedict XVI was pope, the New York Times ran a scurrilous, distortion-infested campaign intended to link the former Joseph Ratzinger with the awful abuse scandals that have so harmed the Catholic Church. These pieces were manifestly dishonest and substance-free when you read them through.

She points out, if I could summarize real quick, she says the reason that they are making a beeline for Romney's tax records is because he's too straitlaced. He doesn't have a divorce that they can go look at. And she recounts the history of every Obama campaign, every opponent had either divorce or custody records unsealed shortly before the election, which resulted in high embarrassment or even resignation of the opposition candidate. Her point is that Obama has never won an election...

    Several critics, most of them conservatives, have complained that Game Change, the new HBO movie made from the best-selling 2008 presidential campaign book, portrays Sarah Palin as profoundly stupid. And it does. Those critics have also complained that the picture sometimes portrays John McCain and his top advisers as deeply craven. It does that, too. And then there's the fact that Game Change, the movie, focuses on a negative portrayal of Palin while ignoring the dramatic and divisive primary battle between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton that made up the biggest part of the book. So there's a lot of...

    The Obama-Biden reelection campaign, which just announced it banked $224 million in 2011, is stepping up fundraising as it steels for an expected fall "smear" machine from GOP front-runner Mitt Romney. In an email to supporters this morning, Obama campaign manager Jim Messina warned that the Republicans will have a fat bank account to tap for negative ads, something both Romney and Newt Gingrich did in Florida. "They're going to try to spend and smear their way to the White House," Messina said about Republican groups and candidates.

Among the claims going out through the mass media in Florida, on the eve of that state's primary election, is that Newt Gingrich "resigned in disgrace" as Speaker of the House of Representatives, as a result of unethical conduct involving the diversion of tax-exempt money. Mitt Romney is calling on Gingrich to release "all of the records" from the House of Representatives...

    URBANDALE, Iowa ó Herman Cainís Iowa state director thumbed through a stack of supporter sign-up forms at the campaignís headquarters here, telling ABC News that the sexual harassment allegations that have rocked the Cain campaign this week have actually been a ďcatalystĒ in this state.

    Judge not, lest ye be judged. Not a bad rule of thumb. Being alive means making mistakes. Growing up means understanding that fact, and taking responsibility. Bad actors never take responsibility. Barack Obama honestly believes he's never made a mistake since getting elected; it's one of the few things I think he really means. Honestly. That's why I kind of like Herman Cain's response to the media thugs. Cain isn't playing their game. I hope he checkmates them, move after move. Never play by their rules. Always set your own rules, or they will kill you. You can see their...

    First, I am not saying Romneyís campaign leaked any information or is behind the current Cain controversy. Thatís not what this is about. If the accusations against Cain turn out to be serious by todayís standards, then itís better they come out now so Cain can get out of the race now. But, what if they were only serious by 1990ís standards? Take the recent accusation of inappropriate behavior against Cain by an Iowa radio host, where Cain said the following to a radio station female staffer: ďDarling, do you mind doctoring my tea for me?Ē People are rolling on...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- "What the [bleep] is Politico doing?" said the man on the phone. "And how the [bleep] are they getting away with this [bleep]?" Reporters rival sailors for their proficiency in profanity, and one of the most experienced political journalists in Washington was cussing a blue streak Thursday evening as he railed against the shoddiness of Politico's reporting on the Herman Cain "scandal."

    New Ad Compares Herman Cain to Clarence Thomas November 4, 2011 (WASHINGTON) -- An emotionally charged new video obtained by ABC News from the group Americans for Herman Cain portrays the sexual harassment story as a racially motivated effort to destroy Herman Cain. The video ends with Clarence Thomasí closing statement at his 1991 confirmation hearing: ďThis is a circus. It is a national disgrace. It is a high tech lynching for uppity blacks who in any way deign to think for themselves. It is a message that unless you kowtow to an old order you will be lynched, destroyed...
  • Media beats up Cain, ignores Fast and Furious

    While the lame stream media continues their non-stop barrage of stories about Herman Cain and allegations of sexual harrasment, they continue to ignore Obama's Fast and Furious that led to the deaths of Americans. The media also hammers away at Cain while they almost ignored the more serious claims against President Bill Clinton in three separate incidents when he was president. Hopefully Americans are noticing.

    The Republican race has officially been hijacked by the Herman Cain sexual harassment controversy, and the furor shows no signs of dying down. Everyone in Washington is now trying to decide whether Cain is more like Clarence Thomas or Bill Clinton. Or maybe even Anthony Weiner. But the media firestorm has overlooked one key fact: We still don't know what Cain actually did. New details emerged Thursday night about the two unnamed women who Politico originally reported had accused Cain of making "sexually suggestive" remarks and "improper" gestures toward them while they were employees at the National Restaurant Association sometime...
