http://pjmedia.com/claudiarosett/al-qaeda-weighs-in-on-the-post-election-landscape/ While Americans have been debating the meaning of Tuesday’s election, al Qaeda’s Ayman al Zawahiri has been weighing in with his own views on this landscape, including the burned and abandoned wreck of the U.S. diplomatic post struck not by a “spontaneous” mob, but — yes — terrorists, at least some of them al […]

http://pjmedia.com/blog/the-american-jewish-left-and-israel/ In “The Failure of the American Jewish Left,” an article in the current issue of Middle East Quarterly, David Brog, executive director of Christians United for Israel, laments the fact that “for many years, the liberal base of the Democratic Party has been steadily turning against the Jewish state.” Brog notes the fiasco at […]
http://pjmedia.com/ Barack Obama has been re-elected president. The United States of America faces huge problems as a nation. Our economy is skidding, we have racked up massive debt to an unsustainable level, and we are no longer a culturally confident or united nation. We are a scattering of enclaves, barely on speaking terms, swaggering and […]
http://www.chroniclesmagazine.org/2012/11/07/obamas-victory/ The conventional wisdom is simple: when there is an uninspiring incumbent and a lackluster challenger, the people will opt for the incumbent. The formula is unsatisfactory in this case, however. Obama was not just any incumbent. He is the embodiment of an anti-America–culturally, spiritually and morally—that is hell-bent on destroying the surviving vestiges of […]
http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2012/11/a-silver-lining-and-a-conundrum.php I can see only one good outcome from yesterday’s election: the fact that Barack Obama will be the president who inherits the mess left by Barack Obama. The economy is in awful shape; it won’t get much better given Obama’s policies, and may get worse. Many billions of dollars in capital that have been […]

Lakshmanan and Flavia Krause-Jackson Susan Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, is emerging as the favored candidate to succeed Hillary Clinton as secretary of state, even with the political controversy over her remarks about the fatal Sept. 11 attack […]
“So what is the answer? Should conservatives throw in the towel and say America, as passed down to us by previous generations, is no more? That was President Obama’s announced goal four years ago when he promised to “fundamentally transform America.” He’s doing it and sufficient numbers of us appear happy to let him. When they realize what they have done, however, it may well be too late to reverse course.”
http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Great nations and proud empires have always collapsed from within before they were conquered from without.President Obama’s re-election mirrors the self-indulgent, greedy and envious nation we are rapidly becoming.
Pollsters Michael Barone and Dick Morris got it horribly wrong. Both predicted a 300 electoral-vote win for Romney. It was President Obama who reached that mark.
The central message coming out of the election seems to be that we are no longer the America of our Founders, or even the America that existed during World War II, which produced our “greatest generation.”
The gap is enormous; it’s an abyss, and its name is Benghazi. They the people have re-elected Barack Hussein Obama, and we have been talking to ourselves. If the disastrous consequences could be clearly perceived, they might lead to a national awakening, but I fear they will be as muddled and confused as the public mind, and the public mind will adjust as it goes along, for the same reasons why it chose to intoxicate itself with the Obama illusion. The hope may well be a crucible of empty promises, but the change is implacable. The United States has slipped out on its history.
It seems that the economic factor was, as expected, decisive for the vast majority of voters. And that’s why they chose Obama over Romney? When European voters dissatisfied with the state of their economies systematically reject incumbents, Americans, of all people, reward economic failure? Foreign policy, on the other hand, apparently weighed less than zero in determining the choice of voters. Logical, isn’t it? Iran races to go nuclear, the Arab-Muslim world is in a paroxysm of rage and destruction, Israel’s existence is under dire threat, European societies tremble as their providential economies run out of gas and their demographics link up with the enraged sharia-imposing forces massed on the borders of the free world, so why should foreign policy be an issue?
Why have issues anyway when you can just groove with a guy who tells you he’s done a great job, the economy is on the mend, al-Qaeda is on the run, and Osama bin Laden is dead? Here comes the 21st-century inside-out version of the Know-nothings — pro-immigrant and anti-American, anti-Christian and Islam-friendly, the Know-nothings welcome with open arms the cool trendy vanguard of totalitarian conquest. And they can’t get enough of it. They sincerely believe they are defending noble humanitarian values against the greatest danger known to humanity — restriction on abortion and gay rights.
http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/3441/europe-secessions As the richer center-right regions are increasingly unwilling to pay for the poorer leftist regions, the strain on multi-ethnic nations in Europe is growing. We might very well see an entirely different Europe – with a handful of new nations – five years from now. Washington would be wise to take this possibility into […]
