Tech at Night: It’s easier to get private Broadband than public Water. Google and eBay take stances.
So the left is mad that the President’s new pick for Commerce isn’t totally in the pocket of the unions, and they’re mad the new pick for FCC, Tom Wheeler, isn’t a radical socialist like Bernie Sanders. I’m not all that optimistic about either pick though. The President is choosing bundlers for personal loyalty, which means radicalism on his terms, but still radicalism.
This is amazing though, and this is something the radicals will never tell you: more Americans lack access to public water than to broadband Internet. Twice as many, in fact. Government is a failure, compared with private competition.

Israel to Obama: We Won’t Get Fooled Again
Only a narcissist would believe that he deserves the faux outpouring of love and admiration this week from the Jewish state after years of his outright disrespect for them that stretched beyond the basic tenants of good statesmanship. As usual, the MSM and Lefty press are calling his speech historic and the best speech ev-ah given by any man on Earth. After receiving Israel’s Presidential Medal of Distinction Thursday, becoming the | Read More »
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 »
The Unique Challenges Israel’s IDF Faces
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson and Allysen Efferson are joined by a Major in Israel’s IDF to discuss the challenges Israelis face with a war so close to home, an enemy that blends so easily into the background and the role of UAVs in modern warfare.

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’s Political Capital
President Obama blows through his own political capital just as fast as he blows through America’s financial capital. Neither case of over-spending is sustainable, and we will just have to wait to see which spending spree is forced to end first. But this further confirms my suspicion that President Obama’s brains are the most over-rated to occupy the Oval Office in generations. Take his recent | Read More »

Judges, not Hagel, should be denied Senate deference
Americans just re-elected a President that shares the views of his nominee for Secretary of Defense To hear most Senate Republicans and not a few Democrats advise of a reluctance to consent to the appointment of former Senator Chuck Hagel to head the Pentagon, one would imagine that President Barack Obama is the best friend Israel ever had; was about to go to war with | Read More »
Chuck Hagel’s Israel Problem
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson is joined by Aaron Blake to discuss Joe Biden’s courting of the NRA, how Chuck Hagel’s past comments on Israel are causing him problems on both sides of the aisle during his confirmation, and why potential 2016 candidates are being so brash.

A handy checklist for the rumored Chuck Hagel appointment.
Just some things to keep in mind: Chuck Hagel has a problem with Israel. Specifically – and as per the, um, National Jewish Democratic Council – Chuck Hagel has a real problem with supporting Israel over the terrorist groups that have been trying to destroy Israel within my lifetime, and probably yours as well. It was reported that American Jewish leaders gave administration staffers an | Read More »

RAND Report Reveals Obama Administration’s Intricate Collaboration With The Muslim Brotherhood
The Obama administration has been diligent in employing a strategy of engagement with the Muslim Brotherhood. But, it is the Muslim Brotherhood’s agenda that is the focus of this joint effort, instead of the interests of the United States. This is according to a report done by the RAND Corporation’s National Defense Research Institute, which is a federally funded research and analysis center and is | 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 »
Israel Gets No Respect…
Perhaps the most under asked question is; why is there a need for a cease fire between Israel and Hamas? Before giving the impression of a warmonger, I am not suggesting that hostilities continue. Not at all. I am wondering if the recent fighting should have been occurring at all? The last four years have left Israel withering on the vine. A nation having to | Read More »
Axis of Hamas-Iran-Egypt Evil vs. Israel Alone
No one actually believes U.S. president desires that his Muslim Brotherhoods suffer defeat, despite Obama Administration statements since Israel struck back against Hamas in Gaza last week. No, the din of President Barack Obama’s apology tours, Cairo speech, bows to dictators, silence when Iran’s mullahs were mowing down freedom-lovers in Tehran’s streets, abandonment of Egyptian ally Hosni Mubarak, Muslim Brotherhood ties in his White House and Secretary | Read More »
