Bumper Sticker - Charlottesville VA - Govt is not God

From J:

Wait, wait, hold on a darned minute. I think merely proclaiming this so publicly makes one a domestic terrorist according to His Lordship, Harry Reid, right?

Spotted in the People’s Democratic Republic of Charlottesville, VA.

I don’t think we’ve written here yet about the Bundy Ranch standoff, mostly because we didn’t have enough information about the situation to make a judgment about what really was going on. And I didn’t have enough time to figure it all out.

Was it, as some portrayed, a heroic struggle against...

In Elizabeth Warren’s new book, A Fighting Chance, Warren claims to be “hurt and angry” that people criticized her claim to be Native American, specifically Cherokee.  Warren blamed the Scott Brown campaign, the local Republican Party, and “some blogger.”

In fact, Warren has no one to blame but herself for her false...

If you only listen to the Israel haters, you’d think Gaza is the equivalent of a Nazi concentration camp and the largest open air prison in the world.

We’ve examined that Pallywood narrative before.

Chelsea Clinton has announced she’s pregnant.

Congratulations. Best wishes for mother and child.

It would be perfectly natural for Hillary to show off the grandbaby, particularly if, as expected, she runs for President.

I can envision the family, including grandbaby, on stage at the Democratic National Convention in 2016 as Hillary accepts the...

Cornell Alternative Student Assembly 4-17-2014

As mentioned last night, and as expected, there was a protest by student groups seeking divestment from companies doing business in Israel in reaction to last week’s 15-8-1 decision of the Cornell Student Assembly to table indefinitely the proposed divestment resolution.

About 75 protestors attended the Student Assembly meeting. I heard...

New York State municipalities are suffocating under the weight of local pensions.

The solution? Defer and delay, rather than deal with the problem now.

From The Ithaca Journal, Borrowing for pension costs soar in N.Y.:

Local governments and the state increased borrowing off the state pension fund to pay yearly retirement costs by 22...

Would Stanley Cohen really rather spend 18 mos in prison than dine with a Zionist?

Before his guilty plea for running his law practice substantially off the books for the better part of a decade, I only had heard of Stanley Cohen tangentially.  He pleaded guilty to one count of obstructing the IRS.

I knew he was anti-Israeli, and hobnobbed with Hamas.  But he wasn’t a major...

Cornell Student Assembly 4-10-2014

Last Thursday the Cornell Student Assembly voted 15-8-1 to table indefinitely the anti-Israel Divestment Resolution brought by Students for Justice in Palestine and some other groups.

The video of the shouting by students — and one very aggressive non-student — reflected the frustration of the pro-divestment students.

One anti-Israel Cornell professor even claimed...

Elizabeth Warren’s autobiography is out, and it looks like she is sticking precisely to her campaign script on her false claim to be Cherokee. The title is “A Fighting Chance.”

As detailed before, after the American Studies Association passed its anti-Israel academic boycott resolution over 25o university presidents, along with major academic groups, rejected the boycott.  The dozens of separately issued statements were a stinging rebuke to this anti-academic, anti-educational, anti-peace, and biased action.
