Palestinians: Fatah’s Armed Gangs Are Back by Khaled Abu Toameh The US and the EU, which have been funding and training the the Palestinian security forces, need to bang on the table — now — for Abbas to rein in the Fatah militiamen, before scenes of anarchy, violence and lawlessness return to the West Bank. After keeping a low profile for the past few […]

The “Victimology” Subterfuge by Christine Williams To question or discuss Islam, or any religion, is not racism, it is not hate, it is not necessarily meant to “victimize” anyone. One is often left with the impression that if anyone ever felt that Mohammed, or Islam, even might have been insulted, no freedom-loving person can expect to be left in peace […]

CAROLINE GLICK: CHUCK HAGEL…IT’S THE ANTI-AMERICANISM STUPID—its-the-anti-ame.php?utm_source=MadMimi&utm_medium=email&utm_content=Chuck+Hagel+-+It%27s+the+anti-Americanism%2C+stupid&utm_campaign=20130114_m114928819_Chuck+Hagel+-+It%27s+the+anti-Americanism%2C+stupid&utm_term=Continue+reading___ Chuck Hagel hates Jews. Or should I say, he hates Jews who think that Jews have rights and that their rights should be defended, in Israel by the government and the IDF, in America by Israel’s supporters. As I mentioned before, it is not at all surprising that Obama appointed Hagel, and I see […]

1. Great Hair no question about it

2. Flexibility….the man is often for something before he’s against it….see KERRY’S TOP TEN FLIP-FLOPS

John Kerry “I actually did vote for the $87 billion, before I voted against it.

John Kerry “I was for the Iraq war before I was against it”.

In October 2003, Kerry said Israel’s unilateral construction of a security fence was “a barrier to peace.”

“I know how disheartened Palestinians are by the decision to build the barrier off the Green Line,” he told the Arab American Institute National Leadership Conference. “We don’t need another barrier to peace. Provocative and counterproductive measures only harm Israelis.”

But less than a year later, in February 2004, he reversed himself, calling the fence “a legitimate act of self-defense,” and saying “President Bush is rightly discussing with Israel the exact route of the fence to minimize the hardship it causes innocent Palestinians.”

He voted for the Patriot Act before he was against it…..

Maybe the Senators should just say…”we were for your nomination before we were against it”


Americans, Gallup tells us, admire Hillary Clinton more than any other woman in the world – again. This latest accolade marks the 17th time Gallup has found Clinton to be the Most Admired Woman (MAW?) since she became first lady nearly 20 years ago. Only Eleanor Roosevelt (13 MAWs) comes close. Only Mother Teresa (1995 and 1996) and Laura Bush (2001) have interrupted Clinton’s winning streak, and even then, Clinton came in second.

And therein lies America’s cosmic flaw. A country that could time and again embrace Hillary Clinton as its MAW has lost its mind or its memory or both.

Does the phrase “congenital liar” tinkle any bells? I know such non-admirable sentiments are thought to be in the worst of taste, if not also banishable offenses. Still, as conjured by the late New York Times columnist William Safire in 1996, the phrase described the then-first lady for her shameless prevarications. These included what sure looked like bribery (“cattle futures”), defrauding taxpayers (“Whitewater”), obstructing justice – or, rather, “finding” her Rose Law Firm billing records (under subpoena for two years) just days after the statute of limitations ran out – among other corrupt behaviors that must have slightly suppressed Hillary-admiration that same year. The phrase remains apt.

“I remember landing under sniper fire,” Clinton declared on the presidential campaign trail in 2008, describing a 1996 trip to Bosnia. “There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down (chuckles) to get into the vehicles to get to our base.” It was a vivid but debunkable whopper, as CBS footage of the event proved. In reality, Clinton, accompanied by daughter Chelsea, made her ceremonial way into Bosnia through a warm throng marked by smiling faces and a kiss from a local girl – not bullets. Admirable?
