It’s a really catchy toon, I hear. The Boycott Divestment and Sanctions crew sure knows how to fire up a crowd. Oh wait, they were the crowd. BDS head draws fire after defending ‘Shoot the Jew’ chant: An anti-Israel rally at a South African University that saw protesters chanting “Shoot the Jew,” which was…

Facebook, Google and Yahoo are together putting increased pressure on the government to allow the companies to distinctly identify the number of national security related requests for user data separately from other law enforcement requests.

Well, there is joy in Mudville, because George Zimmerman has another legal problem. The details are murky and unclear, but that’s not stopping the “I told you so” reaction, as if a new problem proves guilt on a past problem. It really is a horror show to watch (Twitter feed embedded…

Senate cloture vote on Syria resolution to take place on 9/11 (Update – delayed)

Posted by
9/9/2013 at 2:12pm
How convenient. How abusive of the memory of those who fell, a clear ploy to gain political advantage from the significance of that date. The vote will be on Cloture for the resolution, not the resolution itself. It’s an even higher hurdle. https://twitter.com/susanferrechio/status/377131547725295616 Update 8 p.m. — Facing mounting opposition and Obama signaling in television…

Obama’s words versus deeds

Posted by
9/9/2013 at 2:00pm
I have a new post up at American Thinker entitled “Obama and Syria: Words versus Deeds”: In trying to puzzle out what might be going on with President Obama’s muddled, non-strategic, and fundamentally “unserious” approach to Syria, it helps to remember that Obama believes that words are as good as deeds, perhaps…

Syria endgame emerging: Turn over chemical weapons

Posted by
9/9/2013 at 11:52am
The threat of possible military action, as attenuated as Congressional authorization now seems, has led to what may be the endgame. John Kerry floated the idea of Syria turning over its chemical weapons or else, the Russians seized on the idea, and Syria in principle has accepted it: https://twitter.com/BreakingNews/status/377094774282801152 It may very well be…

Forgotten History: Assad has the blood of American soldiers on his hands

Posted by  ▪  September 9, 2013

The notion that Assad is only Syria’s problem ignores the history of the Iraq insurgency, Lebanese assassinations, and the global Iranian-Hezbollah war against Israel and the United States.

Forgotten History: Assad has the blood of American soldiers on his hands

Posted by
9/9/2013 at 11:20am
One of the reasons most often cited why the United States should not get involved in any way despite the use of chemical weapons by Syrian government forces is that Assad may be a brutal thug inside Syria, but he poses no threat outside Syria. Indeed, Assad’s brutality inside Syria long pre-dates…

Posted by

John Kerry’s testimony last week before Congress does not give confidence in the wisdom of his understanding. In response to a question about a Thomas Friedman column – in which Friedman wrote that all Assad needed was a really good talking to and not any physical attack – Secretary of State John…

Are you ready for Presidential Candidate Elizabeth Warren?

You better at least get ready. There’s a buzz being fed. Warren gave a speech to the AFL-CIO today, and the “draft Warren” talk is starting. https://twitter.com/Organize20/status/376852557068386304 There is no bigger or better demagogue in American politics. No one is as keyed into the politics of victimhood as she is. The former law…

Hamas targeted Mamilla Mall because it symbolizes co-existence

Posted by

While in Jerusalem I stayed at the Mamilla Hotel, just above the open-air Mamilla Mall, near the Jaffa Gate to the Old City. What struck me about it was how Arabs and Jews intermingled freely — it was a very mixed crowd and a seeming respite from my near miss with stone throwing in…

Note the “?!?” in the title. It’s because we’re too damn classy to put “WTF?” in the title. Really, Terry McAuliffe, corruptocrat, insider of insiders, money man, fixer, green-bagger? All the recent polling says McAuliffe is going to win: Really, Virginia, Really?!? Someone tell me that yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus, and Cucinelli…

Even as residents are evacuating Syria, hundreds of activists are volunteering to be placed in harm’s way…
