Never forget.

Front pages from 2001 to 2011 tell story of 9/11 decade, from WTC attacks to war on terror and bin Laden’s death

The difference between Israel and Hamas.

An awesome piece on moral clarity in the Middle East, by Charles Krauthammer. Israel accepts an Egyptian-proposed Gaza cease-fire; Hamas keeps firing. Hamas deliberately aims rockets at civilians; Israel painstakingly tries to avoid them, actually telephoning civilians in the area and dropping warning charges, so-called roof knocking. “Here’s the difference between us,” explains the Israeli […]

The best propagandist for Hamas? The NYT. (Part 2)

Bret Stephens, WSJ: Consider the media obsession with the body count. According to a daily tally in the New York Times, as of July 27 the war in Gaza had claimed 1,023 Palestinian lives as against 46 Israelis. How does the Times keep such an accurate count of Palestinian deaths? A footnote discloses “Palestinian death tallies […]

The best propagandist for Hamas? The NYT. (Part 1)

Weekly Standard: Today’s Times photo essay contains seven images: three of Gaza civilians in distress; one of a smoke plume rising over Gaza; and three of the IDF, including tanks and attack helicopters. The message is simple and clear: the IDF is attacking Gaza and harming Palestinian civilians. There are no images of Israelis under rocket attack, no […]

Obama’s Bergdahl Defeat.

Wow. Charles Krauthammer sums up the Bergdahl prisoner swap perfectly. He’s right, complaints about negotiating with terrorists are non-starters and off the mark from the get go, while accusations that the president broke law are ridiculous assuming you’ve ever read Article II — he’s the president, commander-in-chief, and gets a wide latitude of control regarding […]

Oh, now Warren Buffett is for avoiding taxes.

Don’t you just get so sick of these phoneys. Warren Buffett’s hypocrisy speaks for itself… Readers may recall the original Buffett Rule that President Obama offered as part of his re-election campaign that essentially posited a minimum tax rate for the rich of about 30%. Mr. Buffett heartily endorsed the idea and Mr. Obama hauled […]

ObamaCare may cover, but it doesn’t treat.

Here’s yet another crushing story about how ObamaCare first took away a cancer victim’s working and effective insurance plan, and then removed her access to what was that patient’s most effective drug treatment, Sandostatin. It’s written by the son of the victim, Stephen Blackwood, who is president of a small liberal arts college. It also […]

♫ Mister, we could use a man like Dwight D. Eisenhower again…♫

From Jonah Goldberg’s G-File letter: “There is a lovely apocryphal story, generally told about Dwight D. Eisenhower during his time as president of Columbia University: The school was growing, necessitating an expansion of the campus, which produced a very hot dispute between two groups of planners and architects about where the sidewalks should go. One […]

Regarding that shutdown.

I’m late in any posting on this topic but the House GOP should have certainly expected the public to hold them far more accountable than Democrats or President Obama — I mean, that’s just one of the many big advantages in having an alphabet soup of television networks that carry water for your causes. So […]

This just in: Spies spy.

I find President Obama’s admission that he was unaware that the National Security Agency spied on world leaders far more frightening then the NSA actually spying on world leaders. Isn’t that what spies do? Spy on other countries? (Meanwhile stories about the federal government actually abusing its power yield a collective yawn amongst the beltway […]
