MARK STEYN: A CANADIAN “FAMILY” GOES ON TRIAL I wrote about the murders of Zainab, Sahar and Geeti Shafia and their father’s first wife Rona over two years ago, when their bodies were found in the Rideau Canal in Kingson, Ontario: Three or so weeks back, a submerged car was found in the Rideau Canal in Kingston, Ont., containing the bodies of […]


Fiscal Policy: This is a time for big ideas that take some political risk. Rick Perry’s flat-tax solution largely fits that bill, and so do the proposals from most others in the GOP field. Then there’s Romney.

Perry this week finally unveiled the sort of detailed economic plan that, in a well-planned campaign, he would’ve had ready a couple of months ago. So it may be too late to help him much. But it’s never too late to inject good ideas into the political mix. Perry’s plan isn’t perfect, but it would be a huge improvement over the laws in place now……GO TO SITE


True face of moderate leaders

For many years, Professor Sari Nusseibeh has been regarded as the epitome of Palestinian moderation. The urbane president of al Quds university in east Jerusalem, he has been regarded as a “two-state solution” moderate. His actual advocacy of a one-state solution and the swallowing up of Israel has been unaccountably ignored.

Yet now he has let down his guard to reveal more starkly what lies beneath this polished veneer. Considering the Israeli government’s requirement that the Palestinians must acknowledge Israel as a Jewish state, Nusseibeh declared in an al Jazeera article (in English on its website) that this was inherently “problematic” because of its “legal, religious, historical and social implications”.

Those problematic implications are that, for Nusseibeh, a Jewish state would necessarily either be a theocracy or practise apartheid — stripping Israeli Arabs of their civic rights and ethnically cleansing them from Israel, on the basis that in a Jewish state the only people with civic rights would be Jews.

MICHELLE MALKIN: THE 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

URL to article:

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 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 […]
