Media about Hillary’s child rapist defense Matters

Posted by  ▪  July 8, 2014

It’s Mitt’s dog, haircut, and secret tape cubed.

Hillary didn’t have to defend the child rapist. Once she took the case, she had to do everything ethical to provide the defense. But she didn’t have to take the case. Hillary could have just said no. And she didn’t have to cackle about getting the guy off easy. There’s nothing funny about it….

Posted by  ▪  July 7, 2014

“They assume, reflexively, that the hate they have for Israel is mirrored by Israelis and Zionists towards Arabs.”

I added Legal Insurrection’s name to the list of pro-Israel blogs and bloggers supporting Elder of Ziyon’s open and unequivocal condemnation of the murder of Mohammed Abu Khdeir.

More anti-Israel violence … in Malmö, Sweden

Posted by  ▪  July 7, 2014

Man beaten with iron pipe for flying Israeli flag

Malmö, Sweden, is something of a perfect example of how on the streets and side roads of Europe, anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism go hand in hand, and are tied to violence. There’s also frequently a marriage of convenience between Islamists and Leftists, united in hatred of Israel. We have covered the situation in…

When it Comes to Voter ID, Ageism is the New Racism

Posted by  ▪  July 7, 2014

Acquiring an ID is far too complicated for America’s educated, apparently.

Via the New York Times: …lawyers for seven college students and three voter-registration advocates are making the novel constitutional argument that the law violates the 26th Amendment, which lowered the voting age to 18 from 21. The amendment also declares that the right to vote “shall not be denied or abridged by…

Where is the Palestinian soul searching over the murders of Shelly Dadon, Gil-ad Shaar, Eyal Yifrach and Naftali Fraenkel?

After an extraordinary four-month data-crunching investigation of material leaked by Edward Snowden, the Washington Post let off some fireworks this Fourth of July weekend. Their investigation proves that the National Security Agency (NSA) has monitored many more ordinary Americans’ internet usage than non-American foreigners under suspicion of terrorist activities. Nine of 10…
