Aflame
The New Yorker, by David Remnick

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 7/28/2014 7:37:50 AM

Because memory, particularly historical memory, fails unfailingly, this summer feels like a uniquely horrific season of dissolution and blood. “You name it, the world is aflame,” Gary Samore, a former national-security aide in the Obama Administration, told Peter Baker, of the Times, the other day. “We always have a mix of complicated interests. That’s not unusual. What’s unusual is there’s this outbreak of violence and instability everywhere.” The supposed tranquillity of earlier seasons is almost always an artifact of distance. And yet Samore’s “everywhere” is forgivable hyperbole. In eastern Ukraine, where hundreds of corpses, and a dozen or so planes, lay

The one state solution is to borrow an "Obama-Mexican plan" is to fly all Palestinians to Jordan and make Israel whole.

No mention of the bloodshed in Chicago, where war-level casualties have been stacking up all year long.

Yet none of this is Obama´s fault and Israel carries most of Remnick´s blame.

Of course he failed to mention the hundreds of tunnels into Israel, the rockets stored in schools, Hamas ordering civilians to stay put when Israel provided advance warning of attacks.

Oh, and last but not least, Hamas goal of eliminating Israel and exterminating the Jewish people.

What a bunch of nice guys.

Like most of the LSM main papers, and most of it´s offshoots like the New Yorker - this article reeks of mindless hatred for the Jews, especially focused on Israeli Jews.

Any country bombarded by rockets has not only the right, but the obligation to its citizens, to do literally anything to stop the onslaught.

An important consideration that nations in the region, especially Iran, should take into account is that Israel has nuclear capability. Does any sane person expect them to meekly allow their nation to be annihilated and take no preemptive action?

After the true horror of the Nazi death camps became known, the then rational world said, "Never again!"

Much of the nominally free world now regards that phrase as as a quaint saying with the moral power of "Santa Clause is keeping a list, you had better be nice."

I suspect Israel still means it.

Somewhat off theme, but why is it that so much of the world hates Jews? I´m 69yrs old and have never been able to understand that. The only thing I can think of is that the Hebrews (Jews) were GOD´s chosen people. Other than that, I´m at a loss.

As for so much of the world being aflame, doesn´t Remnick know any history? The entire middle east has been a powder keg with a wet fuse smoldering for decades and now it´s beginning to blow. And all of this has been foretold for a very long time. All we peons can do is just wait it out. There will come a day when the whole thing will be sorted by the GREAT REDEEMER. I pray for HIS coming.

Remnick left out Libya, another Obama fiasco. Obama has weakened our allies and strengthened our enemies because, like all American liberals, he thought the problem was that our enemies were like that because we were mean to them. International affairs abhors a vacuum and when the U.S. is weak, the dirtiest street fighters take our place.

Of course Remnick doesn´t breath a word about the fact that in the Hamas charter they want to destroy Israel. Hamas will never completely honor a "peace agreement" because their ultimate goal is to destroy Israel and eliminate Jews from the face of the earth. The same could be said about all the rest of the insane radical Islamists all over the world.

I hope all of those so called democracies are happy that they allowed Muslin immigration, especially France and the UK. Further, what is going on now is a rendition of what went on in the 60´s. Now we all are paying for that era. What Muslims are doing today is a recap of what the anti war creeps were doing then.

Obama is a child of the 60´s and a Muslim. Why are we allowing these people to immigrate. They always cause trouble wherever they settle. A new law should be put in place... if you immigrate and are arrested and convicted, you are gone. If you cheat and don´t get in line, you are gone.

A new President who believes in the Constitution should reverse all of Obamas illegal Executive Orders and send all of the illegals back where they came from. You just can´t maintain a decent society with illegal immigrants and law breakers. Add to that, people who just won´t even attempt to support themselves.

Someone just has to turn this economy around and socialists just aren´t capable of understanding a free system without useless government mandates and freedom to innovate.

Didn´t work for Russia, Cuba and any other Communist country. Isn´t working here.

Ah, soon it will be "mom jeans and ice creams" as Obozo vacations on the Vineyard and the media fawns over this moron in the White House. I don´t think we deserve freedom. We certainly won´t fight for it. The dems are too corrupt to govern and the repubs too stupid. There is a cleansing coming. Jonathan Cahn and "The Harbinger" have it right. Obozo has destroyed the US and the likes of Boehner, Ryan and Ron Johnson have let it happen.

A lot of National Football League players have been right up on the front page lately, but for all the wrong reasons. Ray Rice is in serious trouble for knocking his then-fiancé out cold—the tape of the event is enough to make almost anyone at least slightly ill. Adrian Peterson will soon be up on charges for punishing his four-year-old son with a switch. Two other ballers of an especially hard-nosed type are also in trouble with the law over domestic abuse. Greg Hardy of the Carolina Panthers has been convicted of the crime: his case is on appeal.

Vice President Biden´s Wednesday kicked off with an acknowledgment that he had used a "poor choice of words." By day´s end, he had put foot in his mouth again. Twice. Biden opened the door to the possibility the United States could commit ground troops to fight the Islamic State in Iraq, a strategy the Obama administration has painstakingly avoided raising. That came shortly after he walked back his use of the word "Shylocks" and his use of the anachronistic term "Orient" to describe Asia. Even for the gregarious and outspoken vice president, whose candor has all too often gotten him into hot

John Travolta is feeling his celebrity Achilles heel aching after claims that he´s gay and a lawsuit to boot. "This is every celebrity´s Achilles heel," the 60-year-old actor told The Daily Beast in an interview published Tuesday. Travolta was referring to the lawsuit by Douglas Gotterba, a former pilot for his aircraft company, Alto, who worked for him in the ´80s and is alleging they were also lovers. Gotterba is seeking the right to publish a tell-all book about their romance. "It´s just about people wanting money," the award-winning actor said. "That´s all.

David Gregory, the ousted moderator of NBC´s "Meet The Press," thinks Washington´s political media are too lazy to go against the "narrative." Moderating a panel at the No Labels´s National Strategic Agenda meeting on Wednesday, Gregory said journalists often fail to report on anything that fights the set narrative in Washington media. “[I]n Washington political journalism the narrative gets set, and it gets set early and built on. And things that fight the narrative get harder to report out, I think, often because of laziness in media,” Gregory said. “I think that the media…has gotten very attached to the idea that Washington

Obamacare´s ´family glitch´
could affect 2 million Americans
Washington Examiner, by Philip Klein    Original Article

Nearly two million Americans could be affected by what’s been termed the “family glitch” within President Obama’s healthcare law, according to a new study by the American Action Forum. In theory, Obamacare is supposed to offer fully or partially subsidized health insurance to Americans below a certain income threshold if they do not have the option of obtaining affordable coverage through their employers. "Affordable" is defined as coverage cheaper than 9.5 percent of household income. But under a ruling by the Internal Revenue Service, an employer is only required to offer affordable coverage to individuals. The “glitch” arises when one or both spouses

A law enforcement bulletin obtained by FoxNews.com warned that Islamic State fighters have increased calls for "lone wolves" to attack U.S. soldiers in America in recent months, citing one tweet that called for jihadists to find service members´ addresses online and then "show up and slaughter them." There will be “a continued call - by Western fighters in Syria and terrorist organizations - for lone offender attacks against U.S. military facilities and personnel,” warned a July law enforcement intelligence bulletin from the Central Florida Intelligence Exchange, a state-run agency that gathers, assesses and shares threat information and works with the Department

Power outages linked to L.A.´s intense heat wave rolled across the city Tuesday. As temperatures approached dangerous highs, harried crews restored service to one area only to be sent to another blackout. The scorching heat wave has pushed demand for electricity to an all-time high, and the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power dispatched extra crews to respond to damaged equipment that had left thousands of customers without service. As of 10 a.m., there were 3,300 customers without power, most of them in Los Feliz and Hollywood.

It may be thought that as an Australian I have no right to publish an opinion on American politics, but the whole world has an interest in who leads America. Your hopes and fears are ours. So, as one who has watched Obama’s policies of defeatism, retreat, and serial blundering with dismay, here goes. Dr. Ben Carson has many qualities that make him superbly suitable for high office: he has, pre-eminently, brains and force of character. No one can read his biography and fail to be impressed by his achievements and credentials. He is a fine speaker, and his background is, unlike

Bill Clinton never inhaled. Rush Limbaugh says he never smoked it. Marco Rubio won´t answer whether he ever did smoke pot but Sarah Palin admitted she smoked it in her youth and didn´t like it. Those pushing to have more states legalize marijuana consider this drug rather harmless, medically beneficial and liberal politicians consider this issue one that will attract voters. I don´t blame Rubio for not discussing whether he indulged n his youth or not. He is a public official with young children and carries a different responsibility than the rest of us.

On the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, President Obama used the occasion last week to remind Americans that “our combat mission in Afghanistan will come to an end” in three months. But the cost to U.S. taxpayers for reconstruction in Afghanistan will continue. The U.S. has spent $104 billion to rebuild Afghanistan’s security forces, infrastructure, economy, and health care and education sectors. America is spending more on the effort this year alone than it’s spending on foreign assistance for Israel, Iraq, Egypt and Pakistan combined, said John Sopko, special inspector general for Afghanistan reconstruction.

As a select House committee probing the 2012 attacks in Benghazi convenes Wednesday, three Democratic outside groups are mobilizing to protect Hillary Clinton from any fallout. In a plan shared with POLITICO, officials with the pro-Hillary Clinton group Correct the Record, working with the Democratic research super PAC American Bridge, said they will launch a new website, www.benghazicommittee.com. It’s a research hub that is designed like a news site and will issue detailed, rapid responses to charges against Clinton — mimicking the way a campaign would defend a candidate in real time during a presidential debate.

Flashes of disagreement over how to fight the Islamic State are mounting between President Obama and U.S. military leaders, the latest sign of strain in what often has been an awkward and uneasy relationship. Even as the administration has received congressional backing for its strategy, with the Senate voting Thursday to approve a plan to arm and train Syrian rebels, a series of military leaders have criticized the president’s approach against the Islamic State militant group. Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, who served under Obama until last year, became the latest high-profile skeptic on Thursday, telling the House Intelligence Committee

(Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions.

The anti-war president has finally found a way to wag the dog without upsetting his liberal base and war-weary electorate. Despite the beheading of two Americans, establishment of an Islamic caliphate, direct threats to the U.S. homeland, and the destabilization of the entire Middle East, Obama refuses to acknowledge that we are at war with barbaric Islamic jihadists. And he refuses to authorize the requisite boots on the ground. However, Obama just discovered his pre-midterm election method of wagging the dog -- distracting from his incompetent and dangerous response (or lack thereof) to the real threats to America’s national security

Romney said in the ad referring to Brown, “will buck his own party to do what’s right for New Hampshire.” Romney’s statement implies that Conservatism can be mean, but rest assured that Brown will push
