Senate Democrats Exposed on Iran

    The media is constantly bemoaning the lack of bipartisanship in Congress, with the lion’s share of their scorn directed at conservatives for being too “intransigent.”  Well, almost the entire Senate GOP Conference – both moderate and conservative members – actually united behind a Democrat-sponsored bill to implement sanctions on Iran.  Yet, the Democrats and their allies are spoiling this superlative opportunity to work together on | Read More »

    What New Conservative Members Need to Know About AIPAC

    Roll Call reports today that teams of AIPAC lobbyists are fanning out across the Capitol in an effort to block sequester cuts for Israeli foreign aid.  We’re talking about a $155 million cut from $3.1 billion, for goodness sakes. Nonetheless, here’s a novel idea that would kill two birds with one stone.  Egypt receives about $1.5 billion in foreign aid per year.  Additionally, Obama is | Read More »

    Obama Lied, AIPAC Died

    At the AIPAC conference on Sunday, Obama continued to propagate his lies and ignorance regarding the history of U.S. foreign policy towards Israel.  Undaunted by recent criticism, Obama doubled down on his demand that Israel return to indefensible borders by creating a contiguous Palestinian state.  As such, he continued to display his ignorance of the geographical reality that a contiguous Hamas-Fatah state bordering Jordan and | Read More »

    Hillary Clinton Gets Her Bible All Wrong At AIPAC Meeting

    If she is going to tell a story from Exodus, maybe Clinton should tell the part where the Pharaoh agreed to release the Israelites to leave Egypt to pray to God but only if they left their kids back in Egypt as collateral.

    Breaking: Rep. Robert Wexler resigning from Congress.

    Which is… interesting.  After all, FL-19 is a D+16 district.  On the other hand, his district includes parts of Boca Raton, which is another way of saying that there’s a lot of old people in his district.  Certainly his fellow-Democrat Ron Klein is facing a race next district over with Allen West.  But surely we’re not doing that well in the 2010 expectations game, surely? | Read More »

    Nancy Pelosi’s Stunning Lack of Curiosity

    When the Federal Bureau of Investigation conducted a court-authorized raid of the office of Congressman Bill Jefferson, Nancy Pelosi said: The Justice Department was wrong to seize records from Congressman Jefferson’s office in violation of the Constitutional principle of Separation of Powers, the Speech or Debate Clause of the Constitution, and the practice of the last 219 years. These constitutional principles were not designed by | Read More »

    I am not a shill for AIPAC.

    Thanks to R.S. McCain, I’ve been dragged into this complete non-scandal about him and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe, so I might as well establish this now: I do not work for the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. I am not directly compensated by AIPAC in any way. AIPAC has not provided me with any consideration in exchange for my highlighting the Israel-bashing escapades of | Read More »

    What *did* Greenwald mean by ‘people like Chuck Schumer?’

    Which is what I’d mean by that; but Greenwald’s a member of the Online Left, so that sort of thing wouldn’t bug him when it comes to a reliable Democrat. None the less, Dan Riehl noted that Greenwald isn’t happy about the sudden cratering of Chas Freeman’s career: Isn’t it rather obvious that at some point, there will be a substantial and understandable backlash as | Read More »
