Ron DeSantis Wants to End the Palestinian Charade
One of the more intractable components of our foreign policy dating back to the Clinton years has been the obsession of creating a Palestinian state. The career egghead diplomats in the State Department believed that if we would only send billions in aid to the venerable leaders of the Palestinian Authority and grant them statehood, they would put down their terror toys and sing kumbaya. | Read More »
Can We Finally Bury the Palestinian Fairy Tale?
Nothing has illustrated the definition of insanity more than the cycle of propping up the Palestinian Authority under the the assumption that they are moderates, in the hopes of achieving peace. Yesterday’s vote by the UN to recognize a Palestinian country on parts of Israel’s sovereign territory should be the final straw to end this craziness that has consumed our foreign policy for 20 years. | Read More »
Can We Please Stop Funding the Muslim Bros?
While Obama is intervening in our free enterprise system to fundamentally alter our capitalist society at home, he his intervening on behalf of radical Islamists around the world and endangering our national security. In his effort to reach out to America’s enemies, Obama has emboldened the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, orchestrated an Islamist takeover of Libya that is reverberating throughout North Africa, thrown Israel overboard, | Read More »
Senate GOP Appropriators Will Consume Any Rubbish Democrats Offer
As we’ve chronicled here in great detail over the past year, House Republicans are no pikers when it comes to conservative legislation. This is especially true when examining the records of House appropriators. Yet, even those big government types have [begrudgingly] agreed to abide by the spending and policy decisions of the House-passed budget when considering the 12 appropriations bills during committee markups. As mediocre | Read More »
Now is Not the Time to Shirk From Obamacare Fight
By now, we are all intimately acquainted with the bromide that “Republican’s only control one-half of one-third of government.” Nonetheless, we must remember that, in the realm of appropriations, they control the most consequential body of government; the House of Representatives. Unfortunately, almost a year into their stewardship of that body, they have shown only a tepid inclination to defund Obamacare. Despite months of diligent | Read More »
Mitt Romney: enabling the PRC’s foreign adventurism?
There’s a lot to talk about with regard to last night’s debate, but I want to drill down on this unforced error made by Team Romney. It’s… subtle, but it’s going to hurt Mitt in unexpected ways. Via the CNN debate transcript (via Ben Domenech’s Transom) comes this fascinating discussion of alternative methods of funding humanitarian aid: COOPER: Governor Romney, should foreign aid be eliminated? | Read More »
Agriculture Appropriations Bill Update
Today, the House is debating the annual Agriculture Appropriations bill, which appropriates funds for the Department of Agriculture and similar agencies. The committee-passed bill provides a spending level of $17.25 billion, which is $2.7 billion less than FY 2011 appropriations. While $2.7 billion is a good start -enough to invoke the most vile class warfare from Democrats – there is still more to cut. This | Read More »
So, Which Murderers are your Taxes Funding?
As the budget battle rages on and as we continue to fund domestic baby-killers, do we have to fund foreign ones as well?! For years, the left wing foreign policy establishment has rapturously promoted the ‘Palestinians’ as the cause célèbre of our national security interests. Despite their unyielding commitment to terror, these supercilious ‘wizards of smart’ have credulously identified the creation of a ‘Palestinian’ state | Read More »
