The pros and cons of
the cease fire agreement

Power Line, by Paul Mirengoff

Original Article

Posted By:MDMuskrat, 11/22/2012 10:47:06 AM

Let’s take a preliminary look at the advantages and disadvantages of the cease fire agreement, from an Israeli and traditional pro-Western perspective. There are two big advantages. First, the agreement puts an end, at least for now, to the bombardment of Israel. (snip) Now to the disadvantages. First, Hamas won. Why? Because it bombarded Israel and was not crushed for it. And because Israel reportedly agreed to an easing of its blockade of the Gaza Strip. (snip) By pushing for the deal, the Obama administration has demonstrated once again that it is no good friend of Israel.

Comments:
I break my depressed silence to post this article which shows how much this disgusting man, Obama, hates not only the U.S., but Israel even more. I plead G-d to strike this evil man before he can destroy Israel.

The most dangerous likely consequence follows from the fundamental problem of Leftism everywhere: denial of reality and the substitution of wish-fulfilling fantasies for what is actually happening and about to happen. This is the signature mark of Leftist ideology, the preference, often amounting to clinical denial of reality, and its replacement with comforting and gratifying fantasies that allay fear and increase self-esteem. Leftism, in short, is a disorder of emotional maturation. It is no accident that the trite observation that liberalism is natural to youth while conservatism frequently follows with age.

Israel is dealing with people who have stated they intend to wipe it off the map. Negotiating with such individuals is at best naive, at worst an act of suicidal madness. Yet this charade, this so-called "Peace Process," a kind of Holy Grail, has persisted in the minds of Westerners for half a century or more. Meanwhile the threat of nuclear weaponry in the hands of Israel´s enemies is growing by the day if not the hour. Anyone can see -should be able to see- where this is headed if nothing is done. The almost unimaginable coming catastrophe that is casting its shadow deeper and deeper over present events will in the final analysis be the fault of those willfully, indeed sinfully blind Western Leftists who have adamantly rejected reality in favor of their fantasies.

The last couple weeks was a trial run for a major ground invasion of Israel. You probably have world leftists studying Israel´s strengths and weaknesses and planning for them in the next round of attacks.

Israel treasures their citizens and that ironically puts them at greater risk in the long run. Someone needs to pull the trigger on going for broke and unleashing holy hell on the arab world.

Unfortunately,Obama would order a stand down position if this happened.He´s part of the cabal that wants Israel gone,then he´s coming after US crackers,make no mistake about it.

It´s a specious argument to say that although ´´the agreement puts an end, AT LEAST FOR NOW, to the bombardment of Israel,´´ Israel lost the war, while at the same time saying, ´´Hamas won. Why? Because it bombarded Israel and was not crushed for it,´´ without adding the same qualifying statement ´´AT LEAST FOR NOW.´´

If the agreement holds, Israel will be free of the numerous Hamas missile attacks it´s been subject to for years, and if it doesn´t hold, there will be another war in which Israel will again be bombarded by another round of Hamas missiles aimed at Tel Aviv which Israel´s Iron Dome has proved capable to deflecting.

On the other hand, if the agreement holds, there will be no need for the continued existence of Hamas, whose purpose is to destroy Israel, and if it doesn´t hold, Hamas will either lose another 30 of its leaders as it did last week, or finally be ´´crushed.´´

AT LEAST FOR NOW, a moment or two, Hamas and its media supporters can refuse to face reality and celebrate Hamas´s ´´victory´´ along with the equally deluded anti-Israel crowds of Hamas supporters dancing in the streets of Gaza. But Israel, not Hamas, is better off than it was last week.

Scalia To Student:
If Taxes Go Too High
‘Perhaps You Should Revolt’
CBS News (DC), by Staff    Original Article

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia told a crowd of law school students that if taxes in the U.S. become too high then people “should revolt.” Speaking at the University of Tennessee College of Law on Tuesday, the longest-serving justice currently on the bench was asked by a student about the constitutionality of the income tax, the Knoxville News Sentinel reports. Scalia responded that the government has the right to implement the tax, “but if it reaches a certain point, perhaps you should revolt.” The justice was invited by the UT law school to present its annual “Rose Lecture,” and discussed events throughout his career

The most terrifying aspect of the collapse of US power worldwide is the US’s indifferent response to it. In Europe, in Asia, in the Middle East and beyond, America’s most dangerous foes are engaging in aggression and brinkmanship unseen in decades. As Gordon Chang noted at a symposium in Los Angeles last month hosted by the David Horowitz Freedom Center, since President Barack Obama entered office in 2009, the Chinese have responded to his overtures of goodwill and appeasement with intensified aggression against the US’s Asian allies and against US warships.

The Rule of the Lawless

Deserts always feel like my natural habitat, and I am very fond of them. That being said, I have, for my sins, spent a fair amount of time in Clark County, Nev., and it is not the loveliest stretch of desert in these United States, or even in the top twelve. Protecting the pristine beauty of the sun-baked and dust-caked outskirts of Las Vegas and its charismatic fauna from grazing cattle — which the Bureau of Land Management seems to regard as an Old Testament plague — seems to me to be something less than a critical national priority.

Cruz: Holder Should Be Impeached For
‘Defying Congress And The Rule
Of Law’ In IRS Scandal
CBS (DC), by Benjamin Fearnow    Original Article
Posted By: MDMuskrat- 4/11/2014 2:07:41 PM     Post Reply
Washington- Sen. Ted Cruz said Attorney General Eric Holder should be impeached if he doesn’t indict former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner, who is linked to the agency’s targeting of conservative groups. Speaking on Sean Hannity’s radio program Thursday, the Texas Republican labeled Holder the “most partisan attorney general the country has ever had,” and added that Holder should be impeached for “defying Congress and the rule of law.” Cruz cited the attorney general’s refusal to indict anyone in the months since the inspector general found that conservative and Tea Party groups were singled out for tax purposes.

BLM Rangers Brought in

Armed Rangers were brought in from out of state by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to assist in security surrounding the Bundy Ranch, according to the family. A heated confrontation on Wednesday resulted in Cliven Bundy’s son Ammon being tasered by BLM officials and a 57-year-old protester being shoved to the ground. Stetsy Bundy Cox, Cliven’s daughter, told the Washington Free Beacon that some of the rangers had Oregon and California license plates. “You know, some of these guys don’t even know why they’re here,” she said. “A few people have talked to them and they got called in

Can Bobby Jindal´s Health Plan
Get the Republican Party on Track?

Before conservative policy wonks can win any policy victories, they’ll need to overhaul the Republican Party. For an idea of what that might look like and the challenges any transformation will entail, they should look to one of the party’s wonkiest politicians, Louisiana Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal. Last week, as President Obama touted the 7.1 million private plan sign-ups in Obamacare’s first open enrollment period, Jindal gave the world a glimpse at what the outlines of a Republican alternative might look like. Not only would the plan repeal Obamacare; it would, among other things, overhaul the tax code to remove

Brandeis reverses itself

Ayaan Hirsi Ali is a Power Line hero for reasons that will become clear below. Brandeis University was set to give her an honorary degree at this year’s commencement exercises. But bowing to pressure from Muslim students, outside advocacy groups, and a portion of its faculty, Brandeis has backed down. As much as I admire Ayaan Hirsi Ali, I don’t condemn Brandeis’ decision. My reasons will, I hope, also become clear below.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

Analysis: Obama Celebrates
Eight Million ´Enrollments,´

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
