Show Us Where Israel Touched You, Mr. President
I chuckled the other day on twitter when I saw Kevin Eder tweet, “Mr President, please show me on the doll where Israel touched you.” The President’s antagonism toward Israel, shared by many on the left, borders on the irrational. A nation surrounded by many larger nations all hell bent on its annihilation, Israel’s fight for existence is not like ours. In minutes, the nation | Read More »
Marco Rubio Recounts The History of Obama’s Treatment of Israel
There are three central and related themes to the Obama Administration’s foreign policy. First is a persistent refusal to draw distinctions between U.S. allies and U.S. enemies.

And third is the striking contrast this approach presents to President Obama’s Manichean | Read More »
Barack Obama spins gold into straw in Israel elections. Again.
The New York Sun is pretty blunt about this: “It may be too soon to say who won the election in Israel but it’s not too soon to say who lost — President Obama.” …and, let’s be honest, here. It was a remarkably silly thing for the President to try to get involved in. No, seriously, think about it for a moment. What was the upside for | Read More »

Battleground Israel Turns Out Like Battleground Texas
Team Obama poured amazing resources into Battleground Texas to help Abortion Barbie, Wendy Davis, win and to turn Texas blue. Arguably, the Obama team had so many resources directed at Texas that they weakened themselves elsewhere. But they had a tremendous media operation and their acolytes in the press wrote hagiographic story after hagiographic story on how awesome Battleground Texas was. The media even lumped | Read More »

One of the big falsehoods President Obama told during his State of the Union concerned Iran’s nuclear program. He said, “[W]e’ve halted the progress of [Iran’s] nuclear program and reduced its stockpile of nuclear material.” It’s a claim that was so egregiously wrong that even the Washington Post’s Fact Checker Glenn Kessler was forced to give it three Pinocchios. The National Review’s Fred Fleitz puts it a little more succinctly: | Read More »

Barack Obama Bans Flights to Israel, But Not Flights From Ebola Affected Countries
“If you like your Ebola free United States, you can keep your Ebola free United States” could be another Barack Obama promise. Just another in the long time of promises with, as Jim Geraghty of National Review has noted, comes with an expiration date.
