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 […]

Who’s Tom Steyer?

If you don’t know Tom Steyer and his brother are the liberal equivalent of the Koch brothers, but of course since they’re liberal other liberals, including Democrats in office and media lackeys, have no problem with Tom Steyer and his big money, his corporate interests, and his politics, unlike what they have with, say, the […]

Putin’s Apologists

I had no idea such a ridiculous movement of Russian apologists had reformed, but I suppose Vladimir Putin has his “useful idiots” as much as Stalin or Lenin did. Here’s the commentary by Bret Stephens. Russia is a big country. In case you didn’t know. A flight from New York to St. Petersburg will cover […]

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 […]

Elites fan the fires of racial outrage.

One has to hand it to a few brave members of the liberal mainstream media, such as The Washington Post’s Richard Cohen and Slate’s William Saletan, who have gone against their counterparts (and our president) who continue to perpetuate the false narratives of the Zimmerman-Martin saga. They are the rare exception, and this is likely […]

The false choice on the Zimmerman & Martin saga.

I found a good commentary by Jim Geraghty that sums up much of my feeling on the trial of George Zimmerman. To me the biggest thing that’s bothered me is the purposeful factioning (what Geraghty divides into “Team Zimmerman” and “Team Treyvon” below, underscoring with his allusion to the Twilight movies, which is itself a […]

FBI ignoring IRS misdeeds.

Angela Hunt makes a strong case that there needn’t be a “smoking gun” in the form of a White House memo directing IRS officials to target conservative groups for audits. Instead President Obama used words associated with conservative groups “in at least 33 separate public addresses to condemn conservative political advocacy groups before and during […]
