Israel Alone

Roger L. Simon:
"So it is Israel Alone, fighting the good fight against religious totalitarianism, misogyny, homophobia, global Sharia… I could go on, but Israel’s enemies are not going to believe me anyway. They have their brains filtered through Annie Lennox - like taking you College Boards on LSD."


The political ground is already shifting under Big Labor's card-check initiative
"I love this. The Democrats must now take responsibility for the things they've been promoting."

Sounds like a plan...

Nizar Rayyan of Hamas on God's Hatred of Jews:
"'The only reason to have a hudna is to prepare yourself for the final battle. We don't need 50 years to prepare ourselves for the final battle with Israel.' There is no chance, he said, that true Islam would ever allow a Jewish state to survive in the Muslim Middle East. 'Israel is an impossibility. It is an offense against God.'"

I suggest you take a look at what Johah has to say...

The Squeegee Men of the New World Order:
"Barack Obama leads a counteroffensive from a legal establishment that wants to treat terrorists like any other criminals. Terrorists in Mumbai or Jeddah are little more than the squeegee men of the New World Order."

Uh - Oh!

Judicial Watch Announces List of Washington's "Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians" for 2008

The "Silver Lining"?

This year, L.A. Times editors slammed Sarah Palin, John McCain, and McCain’s ally Joe the Plumber — while they protected Barack Obama and his allies, including unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers and radical Palestinian Rashid Khalidi. The paper described a 19-point margin in opposition to gay marriage as a “narrow margin,” and displayed the usual politically correct attitudes on race, abortion, and crime. We watched the paper overreach on the story about Judge Alex Kozinski’s porn collection that wasn’t. And the paper retracted a story by Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Chuck Philips, in one of the most embarrassing incidents in the paper’s history. This year saw a campaign of relentless distortions on DNA evidence; the bankruptcy of Tribune Company; and a collection of errors like none we’ve ever seen before.

Worth the time to read the whole thing...

My feelings, exactly...

Little Green Footballs
"Earth has circled around the sun again, so here’s an open thread to celebrate humanity’s imposition of significance on this celestial event..."

Of course, this kind of hate crime is perfectly legal...

Gaza Comes to America
I have not seen such hatred in this country since Selma. That was when I really just shuddered and thought–they (the pro-Hamas-niks) are taking away our country.


A Toast to Old Media’s — and Old Medea’s — Defeat in Iraq

Happy New Year, everyone.....

The first blog post I read has got to be the best of the day: Via Instapundit:
NATIONALIZING THE PRESS? A call for a government newspaper bailout. Yeah, what could possibly go wrong?

One man who isn't afraid to say what is on his mind:

Israel, Hamas, and moral idiocy:
"The firing of rockets at civilians from densely populated civilian areas is the newest tactic in the war between terrorists who love death and democracies that love life. The terrorists have learned how to exploit the morality of democracies against those who do not want to kill civilians, even enemy civilians.

The attacks on Israeli citizens have little to do with what Israel does or does not do. They have everything to do with an ideology that despises – and openly seeks to destroy – the Jewish state. Consider that rocket attacks increased substantially after Israel disengaged from Gaza in 2005, and they accelerated further after Hamas seized control last year."


Dennis Byrne of the Chicago Tribune explains Rush's effort to use racial blackmail in an effort to seat Burris:

Rush aptly demonstrated the cynicism of Blagojevich's action by brandishing the blunt weapon of racism. Rush, an African American, warned that a senate that refused to seat Burris, an African American, would be engaging in a "hanging" and "lynching." Even by Chicago political standards, the deployment of those inflammatory words was an extraordinarily slimy racist play.
But that's Chicago for you. By appointing a black man, Blagojevich figured that he would put Reid in the hot seat by forcing him to shut out the only African American in the Senate.
Carol Marin of the Chicago Sun-Times adds:

Who dares, asked Rep. Bobby Rush, . . . to deny a qualified (and, important to note in Illinois, never indicted) appointee as the lone black to replace the lone black in the nearly lily-white U.S. Senate?
Illinois politicians, few of them profiles in courage, better tread carefully with their African-American constituency.
That might include President-elect Obama, who has endorsed his fair share of regular Chicago Democrats.

They done found us out!

Michelle Malkin:
"...the UAW owns and operates Black Lake Golf Course — a “championship caliber” course opened in 2000 that’s part of a larger “family education center” and retreat nestled in 1,000 acres of property in Onaway, Mich. Spearheaded by former UAW president Steve Yokich, the resort also includes “a beautiful gym with two full-sized basketball courts, an Olympic-size indoor pool, exercise and weight room, table-tennis and pool tables, a sauna, beaches, walking and bike trails, softball and soccer fields and a boat launch ramp.” Like everything else we’re subsidizing these days, the UAW’s playground is a money pit. The Detroit Free Press reported earlier this year that the golf course (valued at $6 million) and education center (valued at $27 million) have together lost $23 million over the past five years. While membership in the union has plummeted, the UAW retains assets worth $1.2 billion."

Read the whole thing... makes you sort of wonder?

The Trump Card....

Bret Stephens: Hamas Knows One Big Thing:
"But Hamas knows one big thing, which it labels 'resistance' or, for Western audiences, 'ending the occupation.' Just what that means was made clear by Palestinian cleric Muhsen Abu 'Ita in a televised interview. 'The annihilation of the Jews here in Palestine,' he said, 'is one of the most splendid blessings for Palestine.'"

Not if Barney Frank has his way....

When Will Homeowners Realize Have Some Responsibility For What's Happening?

This story by Nancy Trejos from the December 21 business section of The Washington Post definitely got my attention. To my mind, the money quote was from a homeowner who was complaining about his situation, especially about his inability to refinance his second loan on a home that is now worth much less than when he bought it:

It's no fun when your house is upside-down by $80,000. I didn't create it.

Terror is just terror....

Belmont Club:
"It makes sense in a bizarre kind of way. In the terrorist calculus, attacking one crowd is as good as another. It garners the same amount of publicity and sows the same amount of terror; greater even for being so unpredictable. To paraphrase Crosby, Stills and Nash — when you can’t kill the one you hate, then kill the one you’re with."

Thank you, Dave Barry...

The Year in Review

Quote of the Day:

Because in an year in which Barry hilariously eviscerates the media — sample:
“A mesmerizing speaker, Obama electrifies voters with his exciting new ideas for change, although people have trouble remembering exactly what these ideas are because they are so darned mesmerized. Some people become so excited that they actually pass out.
