The Shame of the American Government - Prime Minister Netanyahu's Speech October 1, 2015

benjamin_netanyah.jpegToday I watched the shameful spectacle that took place at the United Nations during Prime Minister Netanyahu's speech. Never mind that our Secretary of State was absent, and so was the Samantha Power the United States Ambassador to the U.N., but our “C” team sat stone faced and failed to applaud our most important ally in the Middle East. Does this administration have no shame?

From teaparty.org:  “Ambassador Power and Secretary Kerry were unable to attend Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech before the General Assembly because they were called into a meeting with President Obama, which they participated in via video teleconference,” a State Department Official told Breitbart News.

The Battle of Bunker Hill (1775)

Bunker_Hill.jpegIn June 1775, the Colonists discovered a British plan to occupy Bunker Hill as a strategic point to control Boston and Boston Harbor.  The Colonists raced to take possession of the hill.  With limited ammunition, Colonel Prescott is said to have ordered his men, “Don’t fire until you see the whites of their eyes.”  The British won the battle but suffered many casualties.  Here is the Massachusetts Committee of Safety’s account:

“… Orders were issued that a Detachment of one thousand Men [Colonial Troops/ Provincials] should march that Evening… and entrench upon… [Bunker] Hill; just before 9 o’clock [p.m.] they left Cambridge, and

The Card Carly Doesn't Play

Carly_Fiorina.jpegMost political women pander to gender, but Fiorina wants to make it on the merits.

Asked during Wednesday’s GOP debate which woman he’d put on the $10 bill,Jeb Bush named Margaret Thatcher. As Mr. Bush then joked that it would probably be illegal to put a British prime minister on American currency, eyes flicked to the woman standing to his left. Quite so.

Carly Fiorina isn’t Margaret Thatcher, just as her Republican rivals aren’t Ronald Reagan. Yet Ms. Fiorina has a bit of Thatcher about her—and in one way in particular. She isn’t a woman running for president. She’s a presidential contender who happens to be a woman.

That’s new for the GOP. Women have

Nationalizing our Police - is that the next goal of the Left? Support Your Local Police

Scottsdale_Police_badge.jpegJohn Birch Society, September, 2015, by James F. Fitzgerald, National Director of Field Activities

Attacks on law enforcement by radical left organizations continue almost daily. They are fed by the liberal press and the official organs of the Communist Party. For a century, Marxists and their front groups have focused on demonizing local police with demonstrations, riots, and false accusations. They then count on leftists in the media to have their poison appear on television and radio, and in liberal newspa- pers. Their goal is to convince Americans that local police are a serious problem and the solution is a national police force.

Every tyranny on earth logically relies on a national police organization to assure control over the citizens it enslaves. One only need recall Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union in the past, and Cuba and China in the present, to understand the terror inflicted by criminal regimes through their national police.

In June of 1961, the U.S. Senate Internal Security Subcommittee released a small report that detailed Communist plans to discredit and destroy local police forces. Called “A Communist Plot Against the Free World Police,” it was ignored by much of the mass media. Here, in part, is what it said:

Our police are among the foremost guardians of freedom and thus a major target of the Communists. The better the force ... the more vital it is for the Communists to destroy it....

The Communist technique [of war against police] has been directed

Debunking Obama Administration Myths about Secret Side Deals with Iran

Reps. Peter Roskam and Mike Pompeo

MYTH #1: There are no side deals

FACT: While State Department spokesman John Kirby said, “There’s no side deals. There’s no secret deals between Iran and the IAEA that the P5+1 has not been briefed on in detail,” that’s just not true. Assistant Secretary of State Julia Frifield disproves that claim, writing to House Members, “The Roadmap refers to two ‘separate agreements’ between the IAEA and Iran.”

MYTH #2: These side deals are not important to the Iran deal

FACT: These details are absolutely crucial. The IAEA has confirmed that the first side deal seeks

Senator Ted Cruz Is Right: the Corker Law Period for Congressional Review of the Iran Act Has Never Begun

andrew_mccarthy_NRO.jpegby ANDREW C. MCCARTHY September 9, 2015

 In Senator Ted Cruz’s excellent Senate floor speech against President Obama’s catastrophic Iran deal, he urged Republican leadership – Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) and House Speaker John Boehner (R., Ohio) – to reject the claim that Congress must vote on the deal in the next few days. He is absolutely right. By the unambiguous terms of the Corker law, the period for congressional review of the Iran deal has never begun because NRO.jpeg

How the GOP Pretends Not to Authorize Obama’s Agenda

andrew_mccarthy_NRO.jpegby ANDREW C. MCCARTHY September 8, 2015, NRO

In my weekend column I offered a concrete plan to undermine President Obama’s atrocious Iran deal. It is an easy one, because all that the Republican-controlled Congress has to do, if it really wants to derail this thing, is follow the law that they wrote and Obama signed, the Corker law — the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015, sometimes also known as “Corker-Cardin,” after Senate sponsors Bob Corker (R., Tenn.) and Ben Cardin (D., Md.). Sadly, in another iteration of the anger that is the wind beneath Donald Trump’s wings, many readers insist that GOP leadership has no intention to block Obama on Iran. If that is so, NRO.jpeg

The Islamic State Will Be Defeated

I spent last week with the Kurdish Peshmerga as they battled Islamic State. With a film crew, I traveled a long segment of the 600-mile front along which the Kurds of Iraq are taking on the decapitators.

And I tell you, those decapitators, the barbarians with the black flag who, for the time being, have carved out a quasi-state straddling Iraq and Syria, will be defeated. They will be defeated because although they are very adept terrorists they are not good soldiers.

They will be defeated because they act tough for the camera while slitting the throats of defenseless hostages, but they scattered like rabbits when,

The Truth About Congressional Pro-Israel Theater

Daniel_Greenfield_2.jpegCommentary – Daniel Greenfield - Here is how the pro-Israel theater works.

Every other country has its American embassy in its capital. Except Israel. Every few years, Congress would bring up a bill or a resolution calling or even mandating that the embassy be moved to Jerusalem. Even politicians not known for their great love of the Jewish State would vote for it.

Some like Biden or Kerry would even sponsor them.

The bill would have a loophole allowing a president to waive it in the interests of national security, which he always did, even when he had promised to move the embassy to Jerusalem in his campaign.

The politicians were happy. The pro-Israel lobby got to justify its budget. Some Jews however were baffled why the embassy never seemed to get moved.

A similar farce would play out on other issues like cutting off
