“The Israelis want peace. The only way they will obtain it is to make waging war against them too painful to sustain.” – Alan Caruba

By Alan Caruba  July 28, 2014

On Sunday, July 27, Eleanor Cliff, a member of The McLaughlin Group panel, referred to Israel’s “disproportionate” response to the thousands of rockets and missiles that Hamas has been firing at its citizens for months, if not years.

This is a common criticism of Israel, but it is far easier to make if you are living safely somewhere other than Israel and not being awakened by alarm sirens at 5 A.M. with just a little time to make it to a bomb shelter. [Emphasis mine]

Ms. Cliff was hardly alone. In Great Britain, the Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg, in contrast to Prime Minister David Cameron, also declared Israel’s response to Hamas as a “disproportionate form of collective punishment” on the citizens of Gaza.

On July 26 The Times of Israel reported that “Thousands of pro-Palestinian protesters marched in London and Paris on Saturday, calling out against Israel’s military operation in the Hamas-controlled Palestinian enclave.  Read more at factsnotfantasy.blogspot.com.

CONFIRMED: Senate Republican Leaders Paid for Attacks Against Conservatives

By Erick Erickson

I can confirm that the attack ads in Mississippi run by “All Citizens for Mississippi” were funded by Senate Republicans, including Senators Mitch McConnell, John Cornyn, Rob Portman, Bob Corker, and Roy Blunt. It appears our Senate Republican leaders are willing to risk losing a Senate majority so long as they can get their own re-elected. Yes folks, it is true. I can confirm what we all suspected.

The advertisements attacked Mississippi State Senator Chris McDaniel and painted conservative Republicans and tea party activists as racists. According to documents filed with the Federal Elections Commission, All Citizens for Mississippi received funding from a Haley Barbour backed group called Mississippi Conservatives.  Read more at redstate.com.

Maybe Bill Ayers Should See ‘America’

(Post continues below video)

NewsBusted’s Jody Miller states that during an interview with Fox News’ Megyn Kelly, Obama friend, mentor and domestic terrorist Bill Ayers told Ms. Kelly that he is not proud to be an American. Maybe he should see Dinesh D’Souza’s new documentary, America, Imagine a World Without Her to help him change his mind [LOL]?

Letter Urges President Obama to be More Transparent

Remember when Barack Obama promised his administration would be the most transparent in history?  Sadly, this has not been the case.  In reality it has been just the oppisite.  Finally journalists other than Fox News are speaking out about the secrecy and outright censorship of the Obama regime.

On July 8th the Society of Professional Journalists sent a letter to President Obama calling him out on the lack of transparency of his administration.  It was signed by four members of SPJ including David Cuillier its president, as well as thirty five others in the field of journalism.  While this letter may be an example of too little to late, it just might be an indication of the growing frustration with this president by those who were once his most rabid supporters.  Me thinks the Pied Piper is out of tune!

You may read the full letter here:  http://www.spj.org/news.asp?ref=1253

America the Movie – Don’t Miss It – See it NOW

America Imagine a World Without Her  has been extended in theaters until July 17th.  Public support for this film has been overwhelming despite the progressive media and critics’ attempts to downplay and even silence this documentary.  One of the nations largest retailers, progressice leaning Costco, even pulled the book version from it’s shelves until a huge outcry from the public (spelled We the People) forced them to reverse their decision.

Go see this film and find out why audiences are being moved, energized and even brought to tears:  America is playing now at Regal Gainesville Cinema Stadium 14 in Butler Plaza.  Click HERE for locations nationwide.

E-mails Show Lois Lerner Intentionally Sought to Hide Information from Congress (VIDEO)

‘I was cautioning folks about email and how we have several occasions where Congress has asked for emails … we need to be cautious about what we say in emails’

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee today released new e-mails at a hearing with IRS Commissioner John Koskinen showing former Internal Revenue Service (IRS) official Lois Lerner leading an IRS effort to hide information from Congressional inquiries.

From the April 9, 2013, email exchange among Lerner, an IRS technology employee (Maria Hooke), and the agency’s Director for Exempt Organizations Exam Unit Manager Nanette Downing who led audits:

I had a question today about OCS [Microsoft Office Communications Server]. I was cautioning folks about email and how we have several occasions where Congress has asked for emails and there has been an electronic search for responsive emails – so we need to be cautious about what we say in emails. Someone asked if OCS conversations were also searchable – I don’t know, but told them I would get back to them.  Do you know?

President Obama Should Exercise Some Restraint, Not Israel

by Dr. Phyllis Chesler 8 Jul 2014

Today, President Obama appears in the pages of Ha’aretz– on the very day that Israel’s left-wing newspaper is hosting a “peace” conference at which Obama’s anointed (anti-) Israel Lobby is also present:  J Street’s Peter Beinart, Avi Shavit, Gideon Levy, et al.

Of course, this diplomacy-via-media is an over-reaching outrage but it is also pathetic and tragic. Read Peggy Noonan’s appraisal in the Wall Street Journal this past weekend about Obama’s lost, but imperial Presidency.

Instead of holding behind-closed-doors meetings, this President appears on popular television shows, spends times with celebrities, takes long vacations; he is an actor in a film about the American Presidency and he lives as celebrities do. Like so many Hollywood actors, Obama is left-wing, pro-Islam, and anti-Zionist and is proud, not ashamed of being so.

They say that this article appears in Hebrew and Arabic as well. I wonder if the Palestinian media in Gaza and the West Bank have published the exact same words in Arabic? I wonder whether they are running the piece at all? Did President Obama’s team ask for this piece to run in Egypt and Saudi Arabia too? Here’s specifically why I ask: Continue reading at breitbart.com.
