WHAT WE LOSE IF WE LOSE ISRAEL (CONT.)

Time for another blog about what we – and, in this case, very especially Arab countries in the Middle East – lose if we lose Israel. Yesterdat;s New York Times op-ed page had an article by Seth M. Siegel which talks about Israel\’s extraordinary advances in water management, and how its successful technology might become a factor in promoting middle east...

THE IRS WAR ON FREE SPEECH

In case you wonder whether the IRS is finished with its blatant attempt to minimize free speech in this country… …I strongly suggest you read today\’s editorial in the Chicago Tribune, which goes into detail about the new ways of doing so it is aggressively trying to implement. I will give you a taste below – but I urge you in strongest terms to click here and read every...

THE IRS SCANDAL TIMELINE

Mainstream media have done everything they can to bury it. Chris Matthews calls it “obscure” – and there is little doubt that his cohorts at (where else?) MSNBC could not agree more. President Obama says there is “not a smidgen” of corruption involved with it. So how can that be, when the IRS scandal is so obviously an attempt to suppress freedom of speech...

OF CROOKS, LIARS, AND CENSORSHIP CELEBRATIONS

Want to have a laugh?  A gritted-teeth one, but a laugh nonetheless? Then click on this link to a blog by “Heather” at the hard-left crooksandliars.com web site, and read about the Health Center in Michigan which has decided to ban Fox News Channel (FNC) from all its waiting room TVs, “because a board member complained about coverage of the ACA.” Do I find overt...

OREGON\’S OBAMACARE WEB SITE

In the previous blog I talked about the impossibly ridiculous cost of ObamaCare web sites – not just the national site (as much as $634 million for a disaster on steroids which – despite the lies of its PR flaks in the media, is still nowhere near fixed), but the sites for state exchanges as well.  I noted that Maryland\’s web site cost $261 million dollars – all but...

HAMAS\’ “COMMITMENT TO PEACE”

While we\’re on the subject of hamas…. Here, again from Elad Benari at Israelnationalnews.com, is how hamas would view any international military group which might be used to facilitate peace between Gaza and Israel: PalestinianAuthority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’s suggestionthat NATO forces be deployed in the future Palestinian state isnot well-received by his rivals, the Hamas...

IN CASE YOU THINK ISRAEL IS THE ONLY ONE…

If you think Israel could live very happily without hamas ruling Gaza you would, of course, be right. But if you think it is any different for Egypt – the other country which borders Gaza (and which once controlled it) – you would be wrong. How wrong?  Read this excerpt from Elad Benari\’s article at israelnationalnews.com, and see for yourself: Egyptis continuing its...

THE NEW REPUBLIC\’S VIEW OF CHRIS CHRISTIE

The New Republic\’s latest edition has a hit piece on Chris Christie.  But, I suspect far fewer people will read the piece itself than will look at, and react to, its accompanying photoshopped picture: Get it? That\’s Tony Soprano, played by the late James Gandolfini, with Chris Christie\’s head photoshopped where James Gandolfini\’s used to be –...

MORE SNOW

Until a couple of hours ago, it had been another dismal, raw day in Central New Jersey – one in which a wet snow had not stuck to road surfaces because the temperature was slightly over 32 degrees. Then the temperature dropped. We now have about two inches more of new accumulation and the snow is falling at a moderate to heavy pace.  Who knows how much more there will be. I...

WHICH WENDY?

Ken Berwitz Speaking of the ban on abortions after the 20th week – the ban that Wendy Davis unsuccessfully filibustered in the Texas state senate…. ….we have this quote, from a Texas State Senator: “I would have and could have voted to allow that togo through, if I felt like we had tightly defined the ability for a woman and adoctor to be making this decision together...

AND YOU CAN KEEP YOUR CURRENT INSURANCE TOO….

Is this some kind of a contest to see how many ways the public can be lied to about ObamaCare? Here is the latest, via the first two paragraphs of Joel B. Pollak’s article at breitbart.com: In 2009, Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) apologized profusely to the White House for shouting, “You lie!” as President Barack Obama told Congress that Obamacare would not cover illegal immigrants. Now...
