The Medal of Honor is the highest military decoration awarded by the United States government. It is bestowed by the President in the name of Congress, and is conferred only upon members of the United States Armed Forces who distinguish themselves through “conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his or her life above and beyond the call of duty while engaged in an action against an enemy of the United States.” Due to the nature of its selection criteria, it is often awarded posthumously, with more than half of all awards since 1941 given to individuals who were deceased. As the award citation includes the phrase “in the name of Congress”, it is sometimes erroneously called the “Congressional Medal of Honor”. The official title, however, is simply the “Medal of Honor”.

THE NEW YORK TIMES….THE PAPER OF DRECKORD LOVES OBAMA, HATES REPUBLICANS, HATES ISRAEL AND THINKS JEWS ARE A POLITICAL NUISANCE….RSK
The New York Times has been a bit obsessed this campaign cycle with all the big-money checks going to groups backing Mitt Romney for president, or to support conservative causes. Since the Supreme Court’s decision in the Citizens United case, the political left has railed against the decision, which in their collective minds has meant that rich corporations, and/or their super-rich executives, might be able to buy the election this year for the Republicans.
Of course, in 2008, the left seemed little bothered that the Democratic Party’s presidential candidate Barack Obama became the first presidential candidate of a major party to refuse to accept federal funding for the general election. Obama was running against John McCain, the co-author of the McCain-Feingold campaign finance laws, a candidate who was certain to take the federal money, and its associated limits of $75 million in direct spending, for the general election. After all, limits on campaign spending were an article of faith for McCain. Knowing this about McCain, and aware of the excitement and enthusiasm his own campaign was generating, Obama knew that by opting out of the federal campaign financing system, he could raise and then spend multiples of the $75 million McCain had to spend in the two-month general election period.
This, of course, is exactly what occurred. In September and October, Obama spent five times what McCain did in key battleground states such as Florida, and Ohio, most of it on negative and deceptive ads aimed at McCain. Obama won easily. Given the financial crisis in September of 2008, the unpopularity of George Bush, the contrast between Obama and McCain in terms of age and charisma, and the media love affair with Obama, it is a stretch to argue that all the extra campaign cash was the reason Obama won. But it certainly helped widen his margin of victory, and his coattails probably carried other Democrats to victory in Senate and U.S. House races.
The 2012 presidential race is shaping up as one where the financial resources of the two major candidates and their support groups will be much more in balance than was the case in 2008. This in and of itself is very upsetting to the left. They like their party to have more resources than the other side, and they particularly do not like big spending by very rich Republicans, or corporations. Spending by very rich Democrats and by unions seems to bother them far less, or not at all.
“The longer the crisis goes on, the worse Israel’s position becomes, the lower its morale falls and the fewer options it has. The crisis of unfulfilled peace cannot continue indefinitely and while it does, the only ones who benefit are those who write the books and plant the bombs.The Jewish State can have the peacetime war of the peace process or the wartime peace of the old status quo. Jabotinsky warned once that it came down to ending the exile or the exile will end you. The ashes prove the truth of his words. Now Israel has another choice, either it will end the peace process or the process will end it.”
In the library’s history section all the shelves are crowded together. In the Middle East, opposing polemics are wedged up against each other. Alan Dershowitz rubs shoulders with Tony Judt who leans onto George Gilder who balances out Norman Finkelstein who flakes bits of paper on Benjamin Netanyahu. Though located in the history section, most of these books are not history. They are long opinion pieces, arguments for and against the Jewish State.
On the left there are vituperative diatribes and on the right there are earnest defenses. The Holocaust Industry contends with The Case for Israel, The Jewish Lobby with Start Up Nation. Every few months brings new combatants to the shelves. Shlomo Sand is swapped out with Peter Beinart who is swapped out with Noam Chomsky like a baseball team that is forever calling the same players off the bench to make the same plays.
