Turkish Prime Minister drops what little is left of his moderate mask

Just yesterday I pointed out that the Turkish gov’t again proves how far it has slipped, after its Foreign Minister again lashed out at Israel in overtly religious terms Don’t blame the Foreign Minister, the anti-Israel rhetoric emanates from the top, Turkey’s Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, someone we have covered many times here: More…

I decided to make Patricia’s manipulation — contrary to Executive Order — of the Obama skeet shooting shot our header at Facebook. (In case the feds ask, I’m not ratting out who “Patricia” is, and there’s nothing they can do to make me talk, except maybe offering me an Obamacare waiver.) Which reminds me,…

You can’t make this stuff up, and in Illinois, you don’t need to.  Illinois is like my home State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, only bigger and badder. Via John Ruberry at Marathon Pundit: Last fall Judge Cynthia Brim [recieved] barely the necessary “Yes” votes to keep the job that she has…

I witnessed first hand in law school in the early 1980s the concerted and planned effort by “Palestinians” to co-opt indigenous rights movements to the anti-Israeli cause. The push was led by people like George Bisharat, now a law professor at UC-Hastings Law School and self-identified Palestinian-American who frequently writes anti-Israeli guest columns…

As mentioned during Our own inauguration day, the focus this year is local: …. at the state and local level we can, and have been, very effective.  That will be a focus of the Legal Insurrection in the coming year — changing what we can change, protecting what we can protect, undermining what…

And that’s not a good thing if you are Karen Finney of MSNBC, who dropped the Cracker bomb, which got barely a notice on MSNBC because it’s MSNBC, via Mediaite: During a conversation about the Democratic Party’s strategic ability to isolate Republicans as the conservative party makes an attempt to ingratiate themselves…

Seems like there’s a fair amount doing.

Turkish gov’t again proves how far it has slipped

Posted by
2/2/2013 at 12:26pm
We don’t know what or why Israel carried out a secretive bombing mission in Syria earlier this week. Speculation runs from hitting advanced anti-aircraft missiles on their way to Hezbollah, to a biological or chemicals weapons institute, to other unnamed but sufficiently important targets. One thing we do know is that Turkey is…

Scott Brown’s important place in history

Posted by
2/2/2013 at 10:30am
Scott Brown announced yesterday that he decided not to run for the Senate seat vacated by John Kerry.  While I would have preferred he run, I can’t say I blame him. After all, Massachusetts elected Elizabeth Warren, someone who demonstrably misrepresented her ethnicity for employment purposes both in professional publications and for the purpose…

Those are the reports. Via Ynet: Just four days after Iran proudly announced it had successfully launched a monkey into space – a move seen as proof of a technological breakthrough which may help the Islamic Republic advance its nuclear program, London’s Times newspaper is questioning the Iranian claims. The British paper said Friday…

Today would have been Andrew Breitbart’s 44th birthday; he passed away last year on March 1, 2012. I think there’s another facet of his experience that we ought to appreciate on his birthday. Andrew spoke often of his conversion from living a life outside of the political world to one completely immersed in…

I’m interviewed in The Washington Times Communities section, with a fairly nice description and graphic: Since it went online during late 2008, Legal Insurrection has established  itself as a unique legal blog. With a focus on current events, and analyzation  of these from a distinctively center-right perspective, it attracts no small  number…

Chuck Hagel was an embarrassment yesterday at this confirmation hearing.  John Podhoretz has it right: Well, as a result of this confirmation hearing — the most disastrous of its kind since another veteran senator, John Tower, blew himself up in his pursuit of the same post back in 1989 — Hagel has…
