Israel’s “Disproportionate” Self-Defense

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

Gaza Strip WarBy 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.

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.

In a potentially crippling blow to Obamacare, a federal appeals court panel declared Tuesday that government subsidies worth billions of dollars that helped 4.7 million people buy insurance on HealthCare.gov are illegal.

A judicial panel in a 2-1 ruling said such subsidies can be granted only to those people who bought insurance in an Obamacare exchange run by an individual state or the District of Columbia — not on the federally run exchange HealthCare.gov.

“Section 36B plainly makes subsidies available in the Exchanges established by states,” wrote Senior Circuit Judge Raymond Randolph in his majority opinion, where he was joined by Judge Thomas Griffith “We reach this conclusion, frankly, with reluctance. At least until states that wish to can set up their own Exchanges, our ruling will likely have significant consequences both for millions of individuals receiving tax credits through federal Exchanges and for health insurance markets more broadly.” Read more at: cnbc.com.

CONFIRMED: Senate Republican Leaders Paid for Attacks Against Conservatives

Haley and ThadBy 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 stated 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

QuietRemember 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
