Posted by  ▪  July 22, 2014

Split in Circuits virtually guarantees Supreme Court will take case.

Contrary to the D.C. Circuit decision today, the 4th Circuit upholds the Obamacare federal exchange subsidy. Maybe the Obama admin knew about the opinion, which would explain why it was so confident subsidies would flow pending court cases. This all but guarantees the Supreme Court will take the case since there…

Kerry and the illusory “peace plan”

Posted by  ▪  July 21, 2014

It’s extraordinary to think that this man is our Secretary of State.

There’s a long, long article appearing in TNR that professes to be “The Explosive, Inside Story of How John Kerry Built an Israel-Palestine Peace Plan—and Watched It Crumble.” It’s worth reading, but perhaps not for the reasons the authors intended. The problem with the article and so many other treatments of…

Israeli troop morale high despite lost comrades.

Part of the anti-Israel war effort includes attempts to demoralize Israel and its supporters. That is why Hamas, Hezbollah and others try so hard to kidnap Israeli civilians or soldiers, and even to grab dead bodies. That psychological warfare is on full display in the media and social media. But…
