Secretary Kerry’s Hot-Mic Israel
Critique: He Has No Excuse

National Review Online, by David French

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 7/21/2014 10:13:07 PM

When Secretary of State Kerry criticized Israel’s military operations in Gaza by calling them a “hell of a pinpoint operation,” he not only validated Hamas’s human-shield strategy, he handed Hamas a key propaganda victory. And he had no excuse for doing so. Unlike the vast majority of Americans — including a vast majority of Americans in “public service” — Secretary Kerry has actual combat experience. He’s fully aware of the enormous destructive capability of a modern military, and he’s thus fully aware of what a truly unrestrained Israeli military operation would look like. Further, as a senior leader in the

Kerry doesn´t need to bother with an excuse because most of us know the reason - the innate anti-semitism of leftist doctrine.
Simple really.

This episode should erase any doubt about the SBVFT designation of Kerry as unfit.

I´m surprised he can utter a word with that paralized face. The Botox/Restylane/whatever that was used on his deep nasolabial folds has left his face looking like a clump of barely rising pizza dough.

#5 is correct Kerry was only in Vietnam for 3 months not a full year tour when his three scratches got him out. That´s why he has never released his medical records as promised. He´s a fake soldier. When the lead started to fly he got out there fast by using 3 fake wounds.

Cheney’s re-emergence complicates
Obama response to Islamic State
Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 9/10/2014 11:02:23 PM     Post Reply
Former Vice President Dick Cheney’s re-emergence in Washington this week to talk about fighting terrorists in Iraq must have seemed like a bad nightmare for President Obama, who is trying to make a case to skittish voters that the U.S. can expand its military action in the Middle East without repeating the mistakes of his predecessor’s war on terror. For Mr. Obama and his allies on Capitol Hill, the specter of Mr. Cheney and his boss, President George W. Bush, continues to hang over them as they try to grapple with the ascendent insurgents of the Islamic State, also known

As we suspected, President Obama tried in his Wednesday-night speech to make it sound like he was doing something new when he, in fact, he is not. Moreover, in describing his response, he made plain that he doesn’t take the threat to the homeland seriously. For a threat his advisers say is greater than that posed by al-Qaeda after 2001, he proposed measures suitable for Yemen and Somalia. No, really — that’s the plan. For starters, the president doesn’t believe the Islamic State is a current threat to the U.S.: “So ISIL poses a threat to the people of Iraq

Nearly six years into a presidency devoted to ending U.S. wars in the Muslim world, President Obama faced the nation Wednesday night to explain why he has decided to engage in a new one. Obama did not describe his authorization of direct military action to defeat the Islamic State terror group as a conventional war. To the contrary, in a prime-time address from the White House, he sharply contrasted his use of targeted but limited American force with the large-scale air-and-ground invasions launched by his predecessor, George W. Bush. “This effort will be different from the wars in Iraq and

It’s long been said that the Oval Office changes its occupants in ways only those who have served in the small club of presidents can appreciate. Nowhere was that more apparent than Wednesday night when Barack Obama, the once youthful politician who just six years ago eschewed American interventionism across the globe, became the fourth graying-haired president in the last quarter century to ask the American people to support a decision for expanded military action in Iraq. Mr. Obama’s enemy was far different than the cruel dictator named Saddam Hussein pursued by his predecessors. The enemy this time is a

Actor Richard Kiel, who menaced Roger Moore’s James Bond as the villainous character Jaws in “The Spy Who Loved Me” and “Moonraker,” has died at the age of 74, according to TMZ. When asked in “Moonraker” by Lois Chiles’ Dr. Holly Goodhead if he “knows him,” Bond famously quipped, “Not socially. His name’s Jaws; he kills people.” In addition to the steel-toothed henchman in the 007 films, Mr. Kiel appeared in nearly 80 films and television series throughout his half-century career, often in intimidating or monstrous roles. Mr. Kiel, who stood at a mammoth 7-foot-2, sent up his own image

Obama Announces Additional Troops
Abroad—but No Combat Mission

By the time President Obama delivered his prime time speech this evening, he had already effectively softened the news of his decision to launch further military air strikes against Islamic State terrorists in both Iraq and Syria. Obama announced, however, that he would send 475 additional troops overseas, to help the fight against ISIS terrorists, repeating that his mission was to degrade and destroy them. But Obama cautiously asserted that any proposed actions “will not involve American combat troops fighting on foreign soil” -- which was a stronger position than his earlier promise to keep American boots off the ground.

President Obama announced an escalation of the war against Islamic State terrorists Wednesday night with plans to intensify airstrikes in Iraq, send more U.S. military advisers to Baghdad, provide arms to Syrian rebels and likely expand airstrikes into Syria. “If left unchecked, these terrorists could pose a growing threat beyond that region — including to the United States,” Mr. Obama said in a prime-time address from the White House. “We will conduct a systematic campaign of airstrikes against these terrorists.” The president ordered another 475 military advisers to Iraq, on top of 300 advisers he sent there in June and

My fellow Americans – tonight, I want to speak to you about what the United States will do with our friends and allies to degrade and ultimately destroy the terrorist group known as ISIL. As Commander-in-Chief, my highest priority is the security of the American people. Over the last several years, we have consistently taken the fight to terrorists who threaten our country. We took out Osama bin Laden and much of al Qaeda’s leadership in Afghanistan and Pakistan. We’ve targeted al Qaeda’s affiliate in Yemen, and recently eliminated the top commander of its affiliate in Somalia. We’ve done so

Back in 2009 the Milwaukee District Attorney launched a far-reaching and secret investigation into a then soon-to-be elected Governor Scott Walker, his staff, and several Wisconsin conservative groups. The governor and his allies always maintained that the investigation was little else but a political jihad against them. Now a former Wisconsin prosecutor is saying that the union-allied wife of the District Attorney was really the main reason for the long, convoluted, and shady investigation. The case was never successfully defended as a legitimate probe into corruption, having always looked more like a political witch hunt. And now, a new report

Nine months after belittling the Islamic State as a “JV” terrorist group, President Obama will devote an urgent prime-time address Wednesday to his plan for defeating the suddenly resurgent militants, a strategy that will rely heavily on U.S. partnership with an untested Iraqi government and unproven Syrian rebels. In a speech from the White House at 9 p.m., Mr. Obama will tell Americans that the Islamic State is now a “high national security priority,” aides said. And the president will try to marshal public and international support for what would likely be a yearslong counterterrorism campaign, launched little more than

With a public record spanning more than two decades, there is little left to learn about Hillary Rodham Clinton — except where she stands on a host of key issues. As she gears up for a likely presidential run in 2016, the former secretary of state has been deliberately vague, analysts say, in her positions on National Security Agency snooping, the violence in Ferguson, Missouri, central aspects of the Obama administration’s foreign policy and other issues. With no obvious, viable threat to her party’s nomination, Mrs. Clinton is able to straddle the fence on any number of controversial topics with

When she’s home in Dallas for a stretch, the former first lady has a couple of friends over three times a week to practice what she calls “laughing yoga.” As their instructor leads them through vinyasas, they laugh and chat. Other days, Laura Bush takes urban hikes through the area surrounding her Preston Hollow neighborhood — with Secret Service agents trailing several paces behind. On Sundays, she and the former president often welcome old friends over for dinner and a movie. It’s a pleasant home life, but Bush is not often home to enjoy it.

But this virulent display of hatred and bigotry was remarkable, and considerably different from anything I’ve previously encountered,” Cruz said, just a few hours after his pro-Israel speech to the In Defense of Christians conference was drowned

This morning, New York Times reporter Kim Severson spiced up her obituary for Chick-fil-A founder S.

Here´s the relevant excerpt (emphasis mine): When he introduced himself, S. Truett Cathy often played down his job. “I cook chicken for a living,” he would say. And on the surface, that was true.

WASHINGTON--US President Barack Obama will tell the American people on Wednesday night that he plans to order strikes against Islamic State forces in both Syria and Iraq until the group is ultimately destroyed. The president´s plan includes additional support for opposition militias in Syria vetted by the United States, which will serve as a ground force complementing America´s air campaign. [Snip] The "comprehensive strategy," as described by one White House official, will involve "US military action and support for the forces combating ISIL [Islamic State] on the ground–both the opposition in Syria and a new, inclusive Iraqi government."

Rarely has a president faced a greater challenge in establishing his credibility for a new foreign-policy move than Barack Obama did in his nationally televised speech tonight. A CNN poll earlier this week found that just 30 percent of voters thought Obama had presented a clear plan for fighting the Islamic State. While Obama now pledges to ask Congress to train and aid Syrian rebels who would fight the group, voters remember that he backed similar plans in Syria in 2013, when his advisers saw Syrian president Bashar Assad as the major threat.

Throughout his presidency, President Obama has emphasized one point while talking about Islamist extremists: They are not practicing Islam, he has said, they are perverting it. He took that a step further Wednesday night. While announcing that he´s expanding the campaign against the Islamic State extremist group into Syria, Obama said flatly that this group, which is trying to install a caliphate in the Middle East, "is not Islamic." He didn´t say they are perverting their religion; he said they´re not even part of that religion.
