White House going nuclear on Netanyahu

Thou shall not cross Dear Leader. With their gutter sniping failing to stop Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s planned March speech before Congress, White House aides are unloading their full arsenal of bile. “He spat in our face publicly, and that’s no way to behave,” one Obama aide told an Israeli newspaper. “Netanyahu ought to remember that President Obama has a year and a half left to his presidency, and that there will be a price.” It is pointless to say petty threats do not become the Oval Office. Trying to instruct this White House on manners recalls what Mark Twain said about trying

Abolish West Point — and the
other service academies, too

Most Americans are familiar with the prestige that surrounds the United States military service academies. Various names and phrases, spoken like solemn incantations, attest to their sacrosanct status: the Point, the Long Gray Line, Annapolis, cadets. Their graduates constitute a who’s who of American greatness, including Ulysses Grant, Jimmy Carter, novelist James Salter and sci-fi writer Robert Heinlein, to name a few. Gen. Douglas MacArthur, in a 1962 address at West Point, typified the veneration when he told the cadets that they were “the leaven which binds together the entire fabric of our national system of defense.” The service academies

DES MOINES, Iowa — Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) delivered a fiery speech in Iowa on Saturday, wowing the conservative crowd with a passionate argument for small government and his own lengthy resume. The Wisconsin governor, in rolled-up shirtsleeves, paced the stage as he blasted big government and touted a long list of conservative reforms he´s pushed through in blue Wisconsin. The governor also showed a rhetorical flourish that´s largely been absent from his previous campaigns, drawing the crowd to its feet multiple times. "There´s a reason we take a day off to celebrate the 4th of July and not

It would be hard to overstate how poorly things are going for the United States around the world. Iran moves steadily toward acquiring nuclear weapons, with the apparent approval of the Obama administration. Iraq, once hailed as one of the Obama administration’s greatest successes by Joe Biden, is now largely occupied by ISIS. The carnage in Syria continues. The government of Yemen, a key ally in the war against Islamic terror, has fallen. In Nigeria, Boko Haram slaughters thousands and now controls much of Africa’s richest country. And Russia continues to chip away at Ukraine. Let’s pause on this one for

Fox News, a usually staunch supporter of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, changed its tone on Friday when anchor Chris Wallace and host Shepard Smith expressed harsh criticism of the prime minister´s decision to speak before the US Congress in March, without the prior arrangement of the White House and just a couple of weeks before the Israeli election. House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner extended the invitation to Netanyahu on Wednesday and the Prime Minister´s speech on Capitol Hill is expected to focus on the need for increased sanctions against Iran, as well as on Islamist extremism.

Clint Eastwood´s American Sniper film

Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper, the film covering the life of an American Navy SEAL with the most confirmed “kills” during the course of his duty, has led to an increase in threats against Muslims in the US since its release, an Arab-American civil rights group has claimed. The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) has written to Eastwood and the film’s star, Bradley Cooper, claiming that “the majority of the violent threats we have seen over the past few days are the result of how Arabs and Muslims are depicted in American Sniper”, which follows the career of Chris Kyle while he

Sarah Palin ´rambles incoherently´ after
teleprompter freezes, leaving the GOP crowd
baffled and Democrats saying ´Thank You´...

Republican firebrand Sarah Palin is rarely at a loss for words but became unmoored on Saturday in Iowa after her teleprompter froze and left her without portions of her prepared speech. The 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee flipped through a binder of notes and strung together a series of one-liners – and some of them made little sense. ´The man can only ride you when your back is bent,´ she said, as audience members looked at each other quizzically. ´So strengthen it! Then the man can´t ride you, America won´t get taken for a ride, because so much is at

The White House has announced a sudden change of plans. President Obama will cut short his visit to Indi this week, skipping a planned excursion to the Taj Mahal, in order to fly to Riyadh and pay respect to the man he famously bowed down to in 2009, the late King Abdullah. (snip)it is not hard to imagine that newly crowned King Salman has some tough questions for Obama that require a face to face meeting. Such as: “When do we get our nukes? We want bombs and delivery systems on our soil asap.” Or, “We are buying some of

New York Times op-ed columnist Charles M. Blow says he’s “fuming” after his son was allegedly stopped by a Yale University police officer at gunpoint Saturday night because he apparently fit the description of a possible burglary suspect. “So, my son, a 3rd year chem major at Yale was just accosted — at GUN POINT — by a Yale policeman bc he ‘fit the description’ of a suspect,’” Blow tweeted on Saturday. “He was let go when they realized he was a college student and not a criminal.” Blow added: “He’s shaken, but I’m fuming!” The columnist and author, who

President Obama´s weekly remarks Hi, everybody. This week, in my State of the Union Address, I talked about what we can do to make sure middle-class economics helps more Americans get ahead in the new economy. [Snip] Thanks to the hard work and resilience of Americans like you, we’ve risen from recession freer to write our own future than any other nation on Earth. Now we have to choose what we want that future to look like. Will we accept an economy where only a few of us do spectacularly well?

Uh oh. Somebody got the wrong idea about a friendship they were having.That would be President Obama, who said, as part of an obsequious statement lamenting the passing of Saudi Arabian King Abdullah, “As our countries worked together to confront many challenges, I always valued King Abdullah’s perspective and appreciated our genuine and warm friendship.” According to Richard Engel of NBC News, Abdullah’s feelings were not warm, and if they seemed that way to Obama, they were not genuine.You see, unlike Obama, who thinks other world leaders like him because they dig Obama, Abdullah understood that

Where’s the Empathy?

Yamhill, Ore. — The funeral for my high school buddy Kevin Green is Saturday, near this town where we both grew up. The doctors say he died at age 54 of multiple organ failure, but in a deeper sense he died of inequality and a lack of good jobs. Lots of Americans would have seen Kevin — obese with a huge gray beard, surviving on disability and food stamps — as a moocher. They would have been harshly judgmental: Why don’t you look after your health? Why did you father two kids outside of marriage? That acerbic condescension reflects one of this country’s fundamental problems: an empathy gap.
