http://townhall.com/columnists/michellemalkin/2011/10/26/joe_biden_beltway_bubble_boy Last fall, before the midterm shellacking, Vice President Joe Biden admonished rank-and-file Democratic voters to “stop whining.” Uncle Tough Guy should practice what he screeches. The 2012 campaign has barely begun, but Biden’s thin skin makes a spring roll wrapper look impenetrable. Biden’s office is now calling for an official investigation of a young […]
Welcome to the Islamist Middle East and It’s Not Going to Be Moderate Posted By Barry Rubin

Ladies and gentlemen, liberals and conservatives, Obama-lovers and Obama-haters, no matter what your race, creed, gender, national origin, or level of unpaid college loans, two things should be clear to all of you:
First, to describe the Obama administration’s Middle East policy as a disaster — I cannot think of a bigger, deadlier mess created by any U.S. foreign policy in the last century — is an understatement.
Second, the dominant analysis used by the media, academia, and the talking heads on television has proven dangerously wrong. This includes the ideas that revolutionary Islamism doesn’t exist, cannot be talked about, is not a threat, and that extreme radicals are really moderates.
I won’t review all the evidence here, but it amounts to a retreat for moderates, allies of the West, and American interests coupled with an advance for revolutionary Islamists.
Well Played, Mainstream Media http://pjmedia.com/tatler/2011/10/25/well-played-mainstream-media/?singlepage=true Well, my fellow conservatives, we’ve just about let the MSM win one. Rick Perry rolled out a solid economic and tax reform plan today, but many of my fellow conservative bloggers and even a trio of Republican governors have allowed the MSM to move the debate from that plan to […]

Maybe it’s because I’ve given up on Latino liberals who — faced with the uncomfortable but undeniable reality that a president they helped put in office […]
Why the Republicans Won’t Talk About Foreign Policy Posted By David P. Goldman

I WAS AT THAT BRIEFING….AND WHILE I AGREE WITH EVERYTHING IN GOLDMAN’S COLUMN…I DO NOT SHARE HIS BENEVOLENCE TOWARD THE POLLSTER WHO I THINK IS A FOOL …..IT IS RIDICULOUS TO SUPPOSE THAT AMERICANS ARE ONLY CONCERNED WITH THE ECONOMY…AS GOLDMAN STATES:
“Republicans should demand of their candidates that they take a no-compromise position on Iran’s nuclear ambitions. They should pledge to use force to prevent Iran from getting nuclear weapons. Period. No ifs, ands, or buts. No nation-building, no occupation army, no Mr. Nice Guy — just the raw exercise of American muscle. And the American public will stand up and cheer.”
At an off-the-record briefing for a conservative think tank this week, a top Republican pollster explained to a frustrated audience why Republican candidates won’t talk about foreign policy. A quarter of Americans, the pollster explained, have lost their jobs in the past year, or have a family member who has lost a job. In the worst-hit cities the proportion is much higher, peaking at 39% in Las Vegas. When you’re five paychecks away from bankruptcy — that’s the median position of American workers — and terrified about losing employment, you don’t want to hear about foreign policy. It’s fine to kill Bin Laden or Gaddafi, but then Americans would like to see our troops come home. They are tired of the Iraq war. It’s not that it hurts Republicans to talk about foreign policy, but their pollsters are telling them that people just don’t care.
The Jihadist Vision of Tunisia’s New ‘Democratic’ Leader
When the final tally is completed, Tunisia’s Sharia-promoting Ennahda party is predicted to garner from 30% , to as much 50% of the popular vote (an unhappy medium of 40% was projected yesterday). Indeed the expatriate Tunisian vote tally for Ennahda has already been recorded as 50%, and, regardless, on the basis of its large plurality, the party is slated to play a major role in drafting Tunisia’s new constitution.
RUSH: Rick Perry announced his tax plan today, which I’ll go on record as saying I, El Rushbo, think is great. It’s fabulous. I like it. And the left is coming unhinged. We have just two examples. First from Debbie “Blabbermouth” Schultz, who was on MSNBC today, interviewed by the anchor Thomas Roberts, who said, […]
Revolution that eats its children nibbles at Hollywood’s Daryl Hannah, Alec Baldwin, Roseanne Barr
“One section leader proposed to cure economic distress by putting all rich people to death.”
— The French Revolution as described in The Age of Napoleon by Will and Ariel Durant
Why was the frequently outspoken actress Daryl Hannah suddenly so shy when talking to Sean Hannity?
Why was the always outspoken actress Roseanne Barr suddenly so angry with a celebrity financial website?
And why was the never shy Alec Baldwin twittering cagily in non-denial denial mode?
What could possibly make these three famous activist actors so respectively reticent, furious and coy?
The Occupy Wall Street Movement has received cheers from President Obama, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats, with the President’s union and media allies swarming to support the protest.
http://www.theblaze.com/stories/oops-palestinians-shoot-themselves-literally-in-welcome-home-prisoner-revelry/ The Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) reports 20 Palestinians were injured in Gaza due to celebratory shooting-in-the-air upon the return of convicted terrorists freed by Israel in exchange for Hamas’ release of kidnapped soldier Gilad Shalit. After surveying hospitals last Tuesday, the Center reported that among the injured were six children and three […]
