Israel at Peace, Palestinians at War
FrontPage, by Gideon Israel

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 5/5/2014 7:28:21 AM

The recent breakdown in the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations and its apparent implications distorts the day to day reality in Israel. Furthermore, the comments made by John Kerry paint a bleak picture of a country on the verge of becoming a pariah in the international community, or at the least indicate that it would be fair for Israel to be treated that way. (Snip) The reality is that Israel, not only as a country, but as individual citizens, lives at peace with the Palestinians. Hard to believe – but it’s true. Since 1947, when Israel accepted the U.N. Partition Plan, which gave

Israel is at peace, Palestinians are at war. Christians are at peace, atheists are at war. Conservatives are at peace, leftists are at war. Christians are at peace, homosexuals are at war. The American people are at peace, their government is at war.

GOP committee chairman declares
war on corporate welfare
Washington Examiner, by Timothy P. Carney    Original Article
Posted By: Judy W.- 5/21/2014 7:42:00 AM     Post Reply
A Republican congressman bashing “crony capitalism” and “corporate welfare” is no longer a new thing. A Republican congressman actually trying to do something about corporate welfare, however, is nearly unprecedented. So it´s a sign that the GOP could go in a new direction when the Republican chairman of the House Financial Services Committee sets out to derail some of Wall Street´s favorite federal gravy trains and “reform the corporate welfare state.” Texas Republican Jeb Hensarling, who chairs the House banking panel, gave a call to arms at the conservative Heritage Foundation on Tuesday afternoon, imploring his colleagues to “reject the Washington

Photos: Miss Beazley, White House Dog

Over the weekend former President George W. Bush and his wife Laura lost their White House dog, Miss Beazley. President Bush released this statement: This weekend our beloved dog, Miss Beazley, was put to rest after a battle with lymphoma. She was a source of joy during our time in Washington and in Dallas. She was a close companion to her blood relative, Barney. And even though he received all the attention, Beazley never held a grudge against him. She was a guardian to our cats, Bob and Bernadette, who – like Laura and I — will miss her. President Bush gave

These Guys Use ´Small Business´ to
Get Their Way in Washington
Heritage, by Amy Payne    Original Article
Posted By: Judy W.- 5/20/2014 8:44:50 AM     Post Reply
Saying that something helps small businesses is a great way to gain public support for your cause. Except when it’s not true. Take, for example, claims about the government-run Export-Import Bank, which subsidizes U.S. exports by providing discount loans to foreign governments and businesses to purchase American goods. According to bank Chairman Fred Hochberg: “Helping small businesses…grow and compete on the global stage is at the heart of the Bank’s mission.” Boosting the fortunes of mom-and-pop businesses certainly sounds noble — and much more likely to win support from Congress. But the real beneficiaries aren’t exactly what most people would consider “small.”

Gun Retailers: Obama
Admin Restricting Business
Washington Free Beacon, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Judy W.- 5/20/2014 8:09:29 AM     Post Reply
Gun retailers say the Obama administration is imposing regulations that will put them out of business, the Washington Times reports. The retailers say the administration is choking off their credit lines, freezing their assets, and prohibiting online sales. Since 2011, regulators have increased scrutiny on banks’ customers. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. in 2011 urged banks to better manage the risks of their merchant customers who employ payment processors, such as PayPal, for credit card transactions. The FDIC listed gun retailers as “high risk” along with porn stores and drug paraphernalia shops. Meanwhile, the Justice Department has launched Operation Choke Point, a credit

My Commencement Speech to Rutgers’
Geniuses: Go Forth and Fail

Rutgers Did Not Invite Me to Give Its Commencement Speech Today… The university got pretty confused about who would, after Condoleezza Rice declined. Rutgers invited, then disinvited, then re-invited Eric LeGrand, the Rutgers defensive tackle who was paralyzed from the shoulders down in a 2010 football game. LeGrand went on to write two books, become a motivational speaker, and finish his Rutgers degree via Skype. Between inviting and re-inviting LeGrand, Rutgers invited and confirmed the invitation of former New Jersey governor and former head of the 9/11 Commission Tom Kean. So the university has two—and, for all I know, still counting—commencement speakers. But

   

 

  


 
From the Free Speech Movement
to the No Speech Movement

At the very start of the early New Left- circa the 1964-65 academic year- students at Berkley California started what was called The Free Speech Movement. (FSM) Back in those days, university administrators did not allow early supporters of the Civil Rights movement to try and gather support on campus or solicit donations to various civil rights organizations. The police were called in to arrest the offenders, mass arrests were made, and giant rallies surrounding the Sproul Hall steps had nationwide repercussions, including a backlash to the protests from California residents who backed Governor Ronald Reagan’s measures to reign in

Federal subsidy for Brazilian
granite hurts U.S. rivals
Washington Examiner, by Timothy P. Carney    Original Article
Posted By: Judy W.- 5/18/2014 7:28:44 AM     Post Reply
Granite manufacturers are one of many U.S. industries struggling to compete with foreign competition -- which makes it odd that the federal government is subsidizing a Brazilian granite project. The Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) is a federal agency that subsidizes U.S. businesses that set up operations in foreign countries. In 2012, OPIC approved a $6 million taxpayer-backed loan to support a U.S. company expanding its Brazilian operation that extracts granite and cuts it into slabs for countertops to ship to the U.S. and other countries. “ ´The more you help these guys produce stuff, the more they ship here.´

fter allowing an anti-Semitic, anti-Israel infection to fester for months, the president of Vassar College has finally taken a stand for academic freedom and decency. That it took a display of actual World War II Nazi propaganda for her to act is appalling. President Catharine Hill slammed the anti-Israel Students for Justice in Palestine after the group attempted to tar pro-Israel advocates by displaying on the Internet a poster created in 1944 to sow anti-American feeling among the Dutch under German rule. The cartoon image, under the heading “Liberators,” shows a monster stomping on a European city while wearing a Star of

Members of the Class of 2014, I salute you. My warmest wishes on the occasion of your graduation from this fine institution. And, before I go any further, I would like to express my personal thanks to all of you for not rescinding my invitation. I know that matters were dicey for a while, given that I have held and defended actual positions on politically contested issues. Now and then I’ve strayed from the party line. And if the demonstrators would quiet down for a moment, I’d like to offer an abject apology for any way in which I have offended

VA Scandals Raise The
Specter Of Healthcare Rationing
Daily Caller, by Elizabeth Price Foley    Original Article
Posted By: Judy W.- 5/17/2014 7:28:38 AM     Post Reply
Whistleblowers within the Veterans’ Administration health system are coming forward with tales of brutal disregard for the health and life of those who served our country. Allegations of extensive wait times for lifesaving care, deaths while waiting, and horrific mismanagement have triggered outrage. Unfortunately, the VA abuses are just the tip of a much larger, more menacing iceberg. The iceberg is covert health care rationing, and it’s inherent in single-payer systems like the VA. The obvious question to ask about the VA scandal is: Why? Why would a VA hospital administrator direct doctors not to perform colonoscopies until patients had three positive

Education That You Know Is Sick

A headline at the Daily Caller complains: “Principals say Common Core tests make little kids vomit, pee their pants.” Top comedian Louis C.K. shook the educational world with this tweet: “My kids used to love math. Now it makes them cry.” Louis C.K. blamed Common Core. Twitchy.com ran this headline:: “What is Common Core doing to America’s children? Mom shares heartrending photo.” How do our professors work this sick magic? The basic technique is to create garbled problems that have no clear answer. Here is a hypothetical illustration of the basic gimmick: “Tom has six oranges. Mary has five oranges. Mrs. Smith

Obama Gets Scolding on Fighting
Terrorism from Egypt’s al-Sisi

Retired Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, the former Egyptian army chief who ousted Mohammed Morsi and is now running for president, said President Obama could do more to help fight Islamist terrorism. In an exclusive interview with Reuters, al-Sisi was asked if he had a message for Obama. “We are fighting a war against terrorism,” he replied. The White House froze $1.3 billion a year in military aid to Egypt after Moris was ousted in a people’s revolt and the interim government cracked down on the Muslim Brotherhood. “The Egyptian army is undertaking major operations in the Sinai so it is not transformed into

Karl Rove created a stir with his recent suggestion that former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton may have suffered traumatic brain injury in December 2012. Speaking at a conference in California, he noted, “Thirty days in the hospital? And when she reappears, she’s wearing glasses that are only for people who have traumatic brain injury? We need to know what’s up with that.” Let’s ignore the media hyperventilating and look at what Rove actually suggested. According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, traumatic brain injury, or TBI, “occurs when a sudden trauma causes damage to the brain.” Secretary Clinton reportedly

President Obama declared his outrage at allegations of misconduct at VA hospitals at a Wednesday press conference after an Oval Office meeting with Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki. "I will not stand for it — not as commander in chief, but also not as an American,” he told reporters as furor grows over allegations of treatment delays and preventable deaths at the health care facilities. The VA Inspector General’s office said late Tuesday that 26 facilities are being investigated nationwide — up from 10 just last week — including a Phoenix hospital where 40 veterans allegedly died while waiting for treatment and

'And I know its hard to feel the urgency as we sit here on an absolutely beautiful morning in Boston,' Kerry said, 'you might not see climate change as an immediate threat to your job, your communities or your families.

A terrible sort of insanity has gripped the Democratic Party. On almost a daily basis, when you see the party’s leaders in action, you want to start edging toward the door, murmuring “Nice doggie. Nice doggie.” Today it was Howard Dean (filmed a week ago, but seen on YouTube today). He was addressing a Democratic crowd in Colorado, and went off on a tirade against Republicans. Yes, he really did say that Republicans aren’t American. And that they should stay away from the United States, and go to Russia where they belong. One gets the feeling that if the Democrats

Republicans’ hopes of winning back the Senate received a big boost in primary elections Tuesday, with Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) easily winning and other candidates favored by the party establishment beating back tea party challengers. After years of intraparty turmoil that cost Republicans key races, voters this year are coalescing around the GOP’s strongest candidates ahead of November’s general election, when control of the Senate during President Obama’s final two years in office will be up for grabs. On Tuesday, the most consequential day of voting so far this year, Democrats were left disappointed. GOP Senate candidates prone to

Time after time, President Obama has reportedly learned of a number of big administration scandals in the media, from the IRS to Fast & Furious and now the VA scandal over wait times and veterans dying before receiving proper treatment (Jay Carney said today the president learned about this scandal through media reports). All this apparent unawareness before the fact led Charles Krauthammer to argue on Special Report today that Obama acts like he “stumbled upon the presidency” only to be shocked by how much wrong there really is. He lightly mocked the idea that Obama is “madder than hell”

With the latest Benghazi! ™ extravaganza about to begin, the Democrats are faced with a dilemma. Should they boycott the silly hearings, thus leaving the Republicans to put on their pageant unimpeded, or should they join in with a full panel and add legitimacy to the process? The problem seems to be that whether they like it or not, these hearings are going to be covered. And if the press reaction so far tells us anything, they are looking for a show. This is why they should follow the advice of Ari Rabin-Havt in the American Prospect who says that
