http://www.israelhayom.com/site/newsletter_opinion.php?id=496 Is the Republican victory in the September 2011 special election in the NY 9th Congressional district further enticing an independent presidential candidate in November 2012? The November 1991 special election for the Pennsylvania Senate seat became a pacesetter for the November 1992 Presidential election. Democrat Harris Wofford – who represented the disenchanted middle class […]

‘Pass This Jobs Bill!’ There is no bill, it won’t “create” any jobs, and it will be paid for with money we don’t have. http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/print/277492 The president has taken to the campaign trail to promote his “American Jobs Act.” That’s a good name for it: an act. “Pass this bill now!” he declared 24 times […]
Rick Perry is taking on big issues with no sense of fear. In the Florida Republican debate, Perry did little to soften his attack on the Social Security System as a “Ponzi Scheme.” Someday, perhaps, Perry’s insistence on using tough language when talking about Social Security will be seen as a defining moment in American political history.
None of the other Republicans has openly agreed with Perry’s name for Social Security, and even stout conservatives like Herman Cain, in the South Carolina debate, urged conservatives not to get bogged down in rhetoric. Cain is dead wrong. A serious rhetorical attack on Social Security must be made.
Frontal rhetorical attack on dangerous leftist nonsense is the key to conservative victory. In March 1983, President Reagan addressed the National Association of Evangelicals. In that speech Regan ignored the counsel of advisers and said that the Soviet Union had “the aggressive impulses of an evil empire.”
Constitution Day is an American federal observance that recognizes the ratification of the United States Constitution and those who have become U.S. citizens. It is observed on September 17, the day the Philadelphia Convention (AKA U.S. Constitutional Convention) signed the US Constitution in 1787.
On September 17, 1787, the delegates to the Constitutional Convention met for the last time to sign the document they had created, it was the second American Revolution. The Convention was formed to revise the “Articles of Confederation.” What it did instead was to overthrow the existing United States government and create a system unmatched in its fairness and protection of liberty.
The Philadelphia Convention took place from May 25 to September 17, 1787, to address problems in governing the United States of America, which had been operating under the Articles of Confederation following independence from Great Britain. Although the Convention was purportedly intended only to revise the Articles of Confederation, the intention of many of its proponents, chief among them James Madison and Alexander Hamilton, was from the outset to create a new government rather than “fix” the existing one. The delegates elected George Washington to preside over the convention and what was to become the second American Revolution.
I ALMOST NEVER DISAGREE WITH MY FRIEND DANIEL GREENFIELD…BUT BACHMANN DESERVES THE OPPROBRIUM SHE GOT FOR THE NONSENSE ABOUT GARDASIL….LITTLE GIRLS WERE NOT BOUND AND GAGGED AND FORCED TO HAVE INJECTIONS ON A GURNEY….AND, FURTHERMORE….ACCORDING TO PHYSICIANS GARDASIL IS SHOWN TO BE SAFE, EFFECTIVE AND SIDE EFFECTS ARE MINIMAL…..AS IN ALL VACCINES THERE IS A RISK OF ONE IN A MILLION CHANCES OF DEATH….BUT WITH CERVICAL CANCER THE RISK IS A WHOLE LOT HIGHER. AND BTW WHEN BACHMANN WAS IN THE MINNESOTA LEGISLATURE SHE DID NOT OPPOSED THE NO PARENTAL OPT-OUT OF THE HEPATITIS B VACCINE….
NOW, HIS ATTACK ON PERRY WHO HAS ALWAYS STOOD UP FOR ISRAEL….LONG BEFORE BECOMING A CONTENDER FOR THE WHITE HOUSE AND WITHOUT THE NASTY TIES TO THE SAUDIS OF THE BUSH DYNASTY…..BUT MOST APPALLING IS THIS:
“Anyway as we’re told over and over again, this stuff is just a distraction from the important issue that there is a photo of Rick Perry firing a gun into the air, and we really need to focus on that photo and nothing else. Also if we don’t talk about Gardasil, it’ll never come up in the general election. Or we can just look at his Gardasil press conference, which looks a lot like Blagojevich’s “These are all the people I fight for” press conference.” BLAGOJEVICH? NOW REALLY….THAT ONE IS BEYOND THE PALE….. RSK
http://sultanknish.blogspot.com/ WALNUTS AND PEANUTS What conclusions can we draw from the shellacking in NY-9? 1. The Reagan Democrats are back in a big way, while the media is trying to spin this as a single issue vote about gay marriage or Israel, and while those were certainly factors, it was very much a backlash about […]
http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/print/277512 The Solyndra Fraud The solar-energy company was a con game. The Solyndra debacle is not just Obama-style crony socialism as usual. It is a criminal fraud. That is the theory that would be guiding any competent prosecutor’s office in the investigation of a scheme that cost victims — in this case, American taxpayers — […]
It is always important when an historian chooses to tackle an issue rooted in the past but whose impact continues to make waves of tsunami proportion in the present. Few documents better fit that description than the notorious forgery, The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion.
In a new book, License to Murder: The Enduring Threat of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, (Balfour Books and the America-Israel Friendship League), Dr. Alex Grobman examines the “Protocols” and tracks the 100 years of its sordid influence. A prolific author of works ranging from Holocaust studies to advocacy for the State of Israel, Dr. Grobman, whose doctorate is in Contemporary Jewish History from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, is in a unique position to confront the enigma and the impact of the Protocols. A member of the academic board of the David S Wyman Institute for Holocaust Studies, he established and directed the first Holocaust center in the United States under the auspices of a Jewish Federation in St Louis, Missouri and also served as director of the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles, where he was the founding editor-in-chief of the Simon Wiesenthal Annual, the first serial publication in the US focusing on the scholarly study of the Holocaust.

I do not think there is a Palestinian nation. I think it’s a colonialist invention – Palestinian nation. When were there any Palestinians?
“Of all the Palestinian lies there is no lie greater or more crushing than that which calls for the establishment of a separate Palestinian state in the West Bank… Not since the time of Dr. Goebbels has there been a case in which continual repetition of a lie has borne such great fruits….”
– From “Palestinian Lies” in Haaretz, July 1976.
Nothing could better underscore just how emaciated Israeli foreign policy has become than the penetrating observation by former Meretz minister of education Prof. Amnon Rubinstein articulated above.
