Pothole Pragmatism http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/print/280788 Richmond, Va. — Elsewhere, in swing states such as Wisconsin and Ohio, Republican governors are under siege. Union heavies have swarmed capitol rotundas, schoolteachers are marching in the streets, and businesses are struggling. And as the recession continues, poll numbers are plummeting for GOP executives. But here in Virginia, a purple state […]

DANIEL GREENFIELD: THE LEFT’S WORST CRIME IN THE MIDDLE EAST*****

http://sultanknish.blogspot.com/

“Palestine, the cynical project of Pan-Arabist and Pan-Islamist thugs, is the great obsession of the left. Because if there’s one thing that the Middle East doesn’t have enough of, it’s totalitarian regimes built on Arab and Islamist identity. And the one thing it has too much of is democratic state with a non-Arab and non-Muslim minority. And that one thing is what they are committed to destroying.”

The left’s worst crime in the Middle East has been its support for the region’s Arab-Muslim majority at the expense of its minorities. It has supported the majority’s terrorism, atrocities, ethnic cleansing and repression of the region’s minorities. Very rarely has it raised a voice in their support, and when it has done so, it was in muted tones completely different from their vigorous defenses of the nationalism of the Arab Muslim majority.

The left is obsessed with the Arab Spring, which rewards the ambitions of Arabist and Islamist activists at the expense of Coptic, African and other minorities. It is dementedly fixated on statehood for the Arab Muslims of Israel, (better known by their local Palestinian brand), but has little to say about the Kurds in Turkey or the Azeri in Iran. The million Jewish refugees and the vanishing Christians of the region never come up in conversation. They certainly don’t get their own protest rallies or flotillas.

JAMES LEWIS: CAPTAIN AMERICA ABANDONS THE ENTIRE MIDDLE EAST

http://www.americanthinker.com/2011/10/captain_america_abandons_the_entire_middle_east.html I doubt that President Obama loves the name “Captain America,” but that’s the job he was elected to do in 2008.  National security is the president’s first job.  But Obama has been by far the most catastrophic captain of the ship of state in American history in every conceivable way. The last two weeks […]

PAMELA GELLER: READING THE REAL Q’URAN

http://www.americanthinker.com/2011/10/reading_the_real_quran.html Last Friday I was on the Sean Hannity Show, debating Muslim activist Michael Ghouse on the future of Libya.

MELANIE PHILLIPS: FREEDOM TO SUBMIT TO RELIGIOUS OPPRESSION…THE WESTERN ACHIEVEMENT IN LIBYA

http://phillipsblog.dailymail.co.uk/2011/10/freedom-to-submit-to-religious-oppression-the-western-achievement-in-libya.html Well that didn’t take long, did it? From the moment the British, French and Americans went to war in Libya to depose Col Gaddafy in order to ‘liberate’ the Libyans from a tyrannical and oppressive regime, I warned that Messrs Cameron, Sarkozy and Obama were all too likely to bring to power something that […]

MIT’s Richard Lindzen & Physicist David Douglass: Muller’s findings of warming are ‘nothing remarkable’ — BEST study does not alter Climategate’s ‘serious breaches of ethics’

Lindzen & Douglass slam media for ‘completely misrepresenting Climategate': Scandal revealed ‘explicit evidence of the manipulation of proxy records used in paleoclimate reconstructions, suppression of other viewpoints, manipulation of IPCC process, and intimidation of journal editors were all evidence of serious breaches of ethics. Muller’s findings hardly alters these findings’
