“This election will be a hard and ugly fight. And Romney may be the most electable robot for the job, but if we’re going down a hard road maybe it’s best we take a car that can handle the roads and leave the Prius at home.”

So far Mitt Romney has lost two out of three primaries, twice to candidates that the establishment didn’t even feel were worthy of their attention. In his biggest victory in New Hampshire he barely managed to take 40 percent of the vote.

Like it or not Republicans voters are not particularly thrilled about Romney. But how ecstatic can anyone be about a candidate whose main draw is electability. Electability is an excellent strategic calculation, but it garners about as much enthusiasm as any other form of expediency. Most people who vote the big ‘R’ recognize the importance of getting Obama out at any cost, but they are not going to get very fired up about a man whose only credential is that of being able to win.


EDITORIAL: State of the Union 2012: Losing the future Washington Times 01/24/2012 01:10 AM In 2011, President Obama pledged to help the United States win the future. Now that the future has arrived, Mr. Obama will have a hard time explaining why we are losing it. Read more… Read more at: http://times247.com/ SANDERS: America’s love affair […]


Pissing Away the War on Terror Posted By Andrew Klavan

“The tide of war is receding,” he lied.

The Taliban is pissed off at getting pissed on. After four U.S. Marines apparently urinated on the faces of their dead enemies in Afghanistan—and after the event was captured on video and spread on YouTube—the Taliban condemned the action as “inhuman.” And listen, if anyone knows inhuman it’s the Taliban.

The Obama administration made a great show of condemning the Marines’ actions. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta called the pissing “utterly deplorable,” and promised an investigation. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton expressed “total dismay.”

In angry response, commentators and politicians on the right puffed up and got their macho on. “Shut your mouth. War is hell,” said the wonderful congressman and war hero Allen West wonderfully. The adorable pundit Dana Loesch added adorably, “I’d drop trou and do it too.”


Giving Nuclear Secrets Away Preemptively


Choosing to share nuclear defense secrets with the Russians does not create a safer world, nor does it promote trust. Such actions can only weaken America’s future standing in the world.
While public opinion polls suggest a majority of Americans support President Obama’s foreign policy, it would seem most adherents are ignorant of the failures in almost every corner of the globe, from Iraq to Egypt, from the Hindu Kush to the Urals. One of the first blunders was to renounce the agreement with Poland and the Czech Republic on missile defense in order to satisfy Russian leaders. The president has asserted he has “reset” the relationship with Putin and friends.

Unfortunately, the reset button is stuck on U.S. accommodations without reciprocal Russian concessions. Most recently the president told Congress that he is prepared to share U.S. missile defense secrets with Russia. In the president’s signing statement for the 2012 defense authorization bill, it was noted that restrictions aimed at protecting top secret technical data on U.S. Standard Missile-3, which includes velocity burnout parameters, will be given to Russian authorities.

The Murder of Muslim Women and Girls by Islamists Dave Gaubatz

The United Nations (UN) reports that 5000 Muslim women and girls are killed every year in the name of Islam. The UN uses the term “honor killings.” In reality there are thousands more killed but never reported, or the investigative agency does not realize the death was related to Islamic values. It is very important for readers to know that 91% of honor killings are committed by our so-called friends in Pakistan. Later I will discuss why this is important for everyone to understand. In America there are only a handful of deaths that are attributed to Islam and its ideology. This needs to be discussed in further detail because it is the author’s opinion, based on thousands of hours of firsthand research, that the number is likely to be in the hundreds.


Shortly before Newt Gingrich’s decisive victory in South Carolina last week, he was asked a critical question by a Palmetto State voter: Would he support a Muslim candidate for president? The former Speaker of the House answered in a way that was both characteristically insightful and profoundly helpful with respect to one of the most serious challenges our country faces at the moment.

Mr. Gingrich responded by saying it depends on a critical factor: Is the candidate “a modern person who happens to worship Allah”? Or “a person who belonged to any kind of belief in shariah, any kind of effort to impose that on the rest of us”? Speaker Gingrich observed that the former would not be a problem, while the latter would be a “mortal threat.” The Georgia Republican went on to assert the need for federal legislation that would prevent shariah from being applied in U.S. courts.

Many good columns have been written about the evil secret conference which was planned by SS-Obersturmbannführer (Lieutenant Colonel) Adolf Eichmann, Officer for Jewish Affairs to implement Hitler’s policy that Europe should be freed of Jews. Among those present in a lakeside villa expropriated from its Jewish owners were:

Wilhelm Stuckart, a lawyer representing the Interior Ministry and co-author of the anti-semitic Nuremberg laws

Friedrich Wilhelm Kritzinger, deputy head of the Reich Chancellery

Gerhard Klopfer, a lawyer from the Nazi Party Chancellery

Martin Luther, Foreign Ministry liaison to the SS

Heinrich Müller, Gestapo Chief and Eichmann’s immediate superior

Reinhard Heydrich, Heinrich Himmler’s second-in-command in the SS, who opened the meeting on the final solution.

The best documentary on this infamous gathering, available on Netflix is “Conspiracy” a BBC/HBO television film from 2001.

Was World War I hero — an SU grad — passed over for highest military award because he was Jewish? By Jim Salter The Associated Press


Labadie, Mo. — It was bravery of the highest order: William Shemin defied German machine gun fire to sprint across a World War I battlefield and pull wounded comrades to safety. And he did so no fewer than three times.

Then, with the platoon’s senior soldiers wounded or killed, the 19-year-old — who later attended and played football at Syracuse University — took over command of his unit and led it to safety, even after a bullet pierced his helmet and lodged behind his ear.

Yet Shemin never earned the nation’s highest military citation, the Medal of Honor — a result, many suspected, of the fact that he was Jewish at a time when discrimination ran rampant throughout the U.S. military.

Now, nearly four decades after his death, Shemin might finally get that medal, thanks to the tireless efforts of his daughter, whose long quest to see her father decorated also opens the door for other overlooked Jewish veterans of the Great War.

“A wrong has been made right here,” said Shemin’s daughter, Elsie Shemin-Roth, 82, of Labadie, Mo., a small town about 40 miles southwest of St. Louis.


The Unlearned Lessons of Daniel Pearl’s Murder Posted By Bruce Thornton

Ten years ago this week, Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl was kidnapped by Islamic terrorists in Pakistan, after he had been lured into what he thought was an interview with Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani about the links between al Qaeda and the “shoe bomber” Richard Reid. The shadowy Pakistani group that kidnapped Pearl accused him of being a spy for the CIA, and made several demands, including the release of Pakistani detainees from Guantanamo. Nine days later, Pearl was murdered and beheaded, and on February 21, a video was released called “The Slaughter of the Spy-Journalist, the Jew Daniel Pearl.” The footage showed Pearl’s “confession” and brutal decapitation, interspersed with images of dead Muslims, George Bush shaking hands with Ariel Sharon, and Palestinians allegedly killed by Israeli Defense Forces, including 12-year-old Muhammad al-Dura, whose death was later exposed as a Palestinian fabrication. Later, captured 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed would brag to interrogators that he personally had beheaded Pearl. As for his abductor, Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh, though tried and condemned to death, still lives in a Pakistani jail cell, from which according to some reports he has planned other terrorist attacks.

The killing of Pearl concentrated much of what Andrew McCarthy calls the “willful blindness” of many in the West to the Islamic roots of the perpetrators’ violence. At the time, most of the media mainly decried Pearl’s death because he was a reporter. Worse yet were the comments that scolded the terrorists for not understanding that American journalists are neutral observers whose impartiality could help them get their story out. As a New York Times editorial put it,
