Obama warns against ´ramping up´
in Gaza crisis

Associated Press, by JIM KUHNHENN

Original Article

Posted By:Periwinkel, 11/18/2012 11:46:38 AM

BANGKOK -- President Barack Obama said Sunday an incursion by Israel´s forces into the Gaza Strip could only deepen its death toll, cautioning against an escalation even as he defended the Jewish state´s right to defend itself. Obama also warned Palestinians the crisis could crush peace hopes for years. "Israel has every right to expect that it does not have missiles fired into its territory," Obama said at the start of a three-nation tour in Asia.

Comments:
Ruh roh...This does not sound like leading from behind.

As I recall Kuhnhenn has been a dutiful, compliant reporter of all things Obama since before the 2008 election.

This could have been put out by the White House.

Maybe it was.

No real journalism going on here.

Obama´s enmity toward Israel caused this latest Hamas attack. Once he was re-elected they thought they had a free hand.

Israel may be staging troops to clean out the Gaza Strip now that the rockets are reaching Tel Aviv.

FTA: "Israel is at a crossroads of whether to launch a ground invasion or pursue Egyptian-led truce efforts."

´´Egyptian-led truce efforts," for those of you in Rio Linda, is a true oxymoron. And, only a moron would believe that the current Egyptian government, run by the terrorist organization and true friend of Hamas, want peace in the area. What they want is not to cede any land or ´´leaders´´ KIA to the Israelis.

FTA: ""If that can be accomplished without a ramping up of military activity in Gaza, that´s preferable," he said."

0bama seems to believe that wars are fought from the air and not on the ground. The Israelis know better.

Just words - and too little, too late.

Obama and his administration are responsible for this escalation of violence, including the attack and murders in Benghazi, and the horrific violence that is this very instant coming down the tracks aimed at Americans, American allies, and American interests. Our enemies have been persistently coached and comforted and led to believe that they have nothing whatever to fear from us but words. Obama thinks words will do the job against foreign adversaries. All he has ever done is talk, and it has worked for him to persuade millions of American dopes to vote for him, so perhaps it is understandable that he thinks he can talk his way through what is going on in the Middle East now.

A two-decades-old battle between a Nevada rancher and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has resulted in officials armed with machine guns surrounding the ranch and forcibly removing the owner’s cattle, according to the rancher’s family.

Mitch McConnell strode out onto the stage at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday morning, packing heat. The Senate Minority Leader finds himself in an odd position at CPAC. For one, he´s the Republican leader in the Senate and stands to take over as the majority leader next year if some of the audience´s favored candidates win control of blue seats in November. But McConnell is also a five-term senator whose career has largely been characterized by the kind of earmarking that conservatives did away with following the tea-party wave of 2010. And he´s facing a challenge from a

President Barack Obama will sharply cut ships, aircraft, and troops as part of a major reduction of U.S. military forces that will face even steeper downsizing in 2016, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced on Monday. The defense cuts, to be announced formally in the president’s budget proposal next month, would reduce U.S. ground forces to their lowest level since World War II at a time when world threats are increasing. The defense secretary outlined the dramatic reductions in a briefing for reporters at the Pentagon. They include significant cuts in Navy shipbuilding and Air Force aircraft purchases, and a 20

I thank my friend Reid Smith for his kind response to my recent op-ed on libertarians and Mitch McConnell. But I think he and some others are overstating what I’m arguing here, perhaps understandably because effective headlines are not nuanced. I’m not saying McConnell is better on an issue-by-issue basis than his primary challenger, Matt Bevin. I don’t think that, in fact. I’m not even saying people should necessarily vote for McConnell over Bevin, though I’m not terribly impressed with the latter and think the former is the least bad of the big five GOP leaders in Congress.

Senator Ted Cruz is a hero in some Republican circles -- and the opposite among many of his Senate Republican colleagues.(sn)However unjustified Senator Cruz´s actions, the very fact that a freshman Senator can so quickly gain so many supporters, with so much enthusiasm, ought to be a loud warning to the Republican establishment that they have long been a huge disappointment to a wide range of Republican voters and supporters.

The new GOH Conservative PAC, inspired by the Senate Conservatives Fund, “defends conservative Republicans from the attacks that come from the mainstream,” Gohmert told TheDC. “That’s been a problem, we’ve seen in some races, where we’ve had leadership come and play and there was no counterbalance

Some supporters of President Obama may be worried about how he and the Democrats are going to fare politically, as the problems of ObamaCare continue to escalate, and it looks like the Republicans have a chance to win a majority in the Senate. But Democrats may not need to worry so much. Republicans may once again come to the rescue of the Democrats, by discrediting themselves and snatching defeat from the very jaws of victory. The latest bright idea among Republicans inside the Beltway is a new version of amnesty

Conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt slammed Rep.

Senate Democrats on Thursday blocked a Republican attempt to restore military pensions cut in last month’s budget deal, denying a vote that would save up to $20 billion by closing a loophole that allows tax refunds to go to illegal aliens. Sen. Barbara Boxer (D., Calif.) called an effort by Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R., N.H.) to repeal the military retiree cuts “fiddling while Rome burns.” Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) “filled the amendment tree” on Thursday, ending debate and blocking any Republican amendments to a bill to extend unemployment insurance (UI) benefits. Among them was Ayotte’s measure, which would

While Chris Christie’s bridge scandal is dominating the headlines, a lesser-known potential scandal is brewing in Wisconsin. As the Wall Street Journal reported in November, ”a special prosecutor is targeting conservative groups that participated in the battle over Governor Scott Walker’s union reforms.” The allegation is of improper coordination between the campaign and conservative outside groups, and the real danger may simply be that a denouement isn’t reached until after November (Walker’s re-election).

Many lawmakers including a vast cross-section of Republican House members voted for the recent two-year budget deal without reading the bill and realizing that it slashes veteran pensions — and there’s now bipartisan desperation reaching the White House to repeal that provision with new legislation. “[The House] moved it very quickly. It came out Tuesday, they voted Thursday and they were gone Thursday night,” retired Col. Mike Barron told The Daily Caller. Barron’s organization Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) is now leading a charge on Capitol Hill to repeal the pension cuts.

A new bill offered in the House of Representatives by Rep.

The proposal would save an estimated $17 billion over 10 years and eliminate a controversial provision in the budget deal passed last month that hit military retirees with a 1 percent decrease in their annual cost-of-living adjustments (COLA). The budget agreement did not cut pensions for federal civilian retirees.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings.
