Why Do They Hate Us? Because It Works Like Hell.
People seem perplexed as to how to get what they want from our president. They claim he is aloof, out of touch and too busy fundraising with Flo-Rida and “Pimp with a limp” to properly attend to their dearest desires. Fortunately for all five or six of my constant readers, I’ve discovered the key to getting whatever you want out of Barack Obama. You beat the man into submission when he is most vulnerable. If you are nice to him instead, you will be considered weak and urinated upon accordingly.

Democrats Exposed Naked on God and Jerusalem
The real momentous news at the DNC yesterday was not Bill Clinton’s Clintonian speech. It was the imbroglio over God and Jerusalem in the party’s platform, when party leaders were forced to reinsert references to God and Jerusalem to the dismay of the party faithful. Here are a few points to consider: 1) The two parties are a mirror image of each other in terms | Read More »
Forward™ reads the DNC motto in delusional Stalinesque grandeur. They are marching beyond traditional boundaries. God is a mere delusion. Strike it from the platform. America’s love for Israel is from that crazy Jeebus Book. We can’t defend that (expletive) country in a Democratic Party platform. Plus, Progressives have moved far beyond mere serfdom or chattel slavery. We don’t belong to the landed gentry, nor are we private property. With successful nationalization; we now only belong to the Government! Big Brother is now watching – even when you skinny-dip.
The DNC has run all three ideas up the flag-pole and watched with amazement when lightning struck the same flagpole three times. The DNC has now made like Brave Sir Robin and bravely ran away. It started with the “We Only Belong to Government” agitprop from the North Carolina Central Committee. Obama couldn’t proclaim its non-existence, so he disowned the North Carolina State Party by refusing to agree that it was done in his name. This will make it vastly easier for North Carolina Democrats to disown Barack Obama while the run down-ticket this November.

DWS Caught Fibbing as the DNC Throws Israel Under the Bus
As something of a political junkie, I must admit that I’ve seen some pretty ridiculous statements over the years. Politicians do, after all, twist and turn like twisty-turny things in their efforts to make the untrue true.* However, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s recent statement about the GOP and Israel has got to be among the most patently false statements of this whole campaign. Philip Klein of the | Read More »

Romney’s Racism of Saying the Obvious
If you believe the propaganda our major networks label as news Mitt Romney personifies the Big, Bad White Devil. He denigrates the achievements of diverse foreign cultures. He picks the scabs off of centuries old grievances over racial injustice just because he gets off on making it bleed. So how does Mitt Romney work such horrible and iniquitous injustice? He egregiously tells the truth. Here | Read More »
Mitt Romney and the Culture War
One of Mitt Romney favorite topics on the stump is the role of culture in determining economic prosperity. Often, in the course of his remarks, he will refer to The Wealth and Poverty of Nations: Why Some Are So Rich and Some So Poor by David S. Landes. According to Romney, Landes argues that “if you could learn anything from the economic history of the world | Read More »
Romney calls Jerusalem capital of Israel.
Which it is, of course. Although possibly the more important event from Romney’s Israel remarks was that “Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said before the speech that “all the sanctions and diplomacy so far have not set back the Iranian program by one iota.”” Which they haven’t, of course. Back at home? Well, the Democrats haven’t been exactly covering themselves in glory on this one. | Read More »

Sardinians in Central Israel? The Excavator of El-Ahwat Makes His Final Case

Colloquia, conferences, articles, and monographs have dealt in depth with the diplomacy, balance of power, and widespread trade that marked this period and the migrations and collapses that marked the transition to the Early Iron Age.

Newt Gingrich Tells the Truth About the Palestinian Non-Entity
“The Palestinians are the global warming climate change of geopolitical conflict. They use deceptive parlance to advance their agenda.” Newt Gingrich hit it out of the park with his succinct assessment of the “Palestinian” cause. One of the most incorrigible fallacies pertaining to the Middle East is the notion that the Palestinians are entitled to a state of their own. This fallacy stems from the | Read More »
Like a Double-Edged Sword, the Israel-Hamas Deal to Free Gilad Schalit Cuts Both Ways
Five years, three months, two weeks, and three days ago, Hamas militants from Gaza tunneled under the sequestered Strip’s border with Israel and popped up near the Kerem Hashalom crossing, where they attacked an Israeli tank, killing two crewmembers and injuring five. The militants grabbed Corporal Gilad Schalit from the tank, and escaped back into the Gaza Strip with him. He had been a captive | Read More »
Obama at UN: Arabs Build Bombs; Israelis Build Homes -It’s all the Same
Not surprisingly, Obama doubled down on his message of moral equivalence between Israel and the so-called Palestinians in his UN General Assembly speech. Yes, he tossed out some politically motivated bromides about our deep friendship with Israel, but overall, he continued to view the two sides equally. Obama’s overarching theme was that peace in the Middle East is “so hard” to achieve. He asserted that there | Read More »
