President Obama’s smoldering antipathy toward Israel and its freshly reelected Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is finally taking its toll on his support among Americans Jews.
While both national leaders still say all the right things about the almost seven decade alliance between the two democracies, the public has read the events and body language differently. With this presidential administration, it’s more like, ‘Best friends, like it or not.’
Obama’s aggressive push for more Israeli concessions on Palestinians and Netanyahu’s resistance exacerbate bilateral tensions.
More importantly, the appearance of Obama favoring Iran and his ongoing persistence in paving the way for Iran’s development of nuclear weapons, through the guise of negotiations originally framed as stopping the program’s development altogether, has run up against Netanyahu’s adamant opposition. And disfavor among Israelis.

Guest Speaker - To Be Announced
Our new North Shore Field Office now has a brand new Facebook page. While I will still send out emails and make calls about upcoming events in the office, I am hoping to use this page to get information out to a wider group of people who may not be involved in the office right now. As you can see, we do not have many likes for the group so far, so when you get a chance please like the page on Facebook and share it with family and friends so that they may be up to date as well.
In addition, if you have any advice about what else should be included on the page, feel free to reach out to me.
Milwaukee Regional Field Director

–SNIP– In the realm of non-legal services, these are some of the reported cases of people being penalized for refusing to provide services for events celebrating homosexuality for religious reasons.
- A 70-year-old florist, Barronell Stutzman, was fined by the State of Washington for not providing flowers for a “gay” wedding. Now her home and personal savings are at risk. The state and the plaintiffs propose to bankrupt her personally and the court has ruled that her personal property is available to execute any judgment. They intend to render her destitute in her old age.
- Photographer Elaine Huguenin was ordered by the State of New Mexico to give a lesbian $7,000 for declining to photograph her same-sex wedding.
- Bakers, Aaron and Melissa Klein were fined $150,000 by the State of Oregon for refusal to bake a cake for a lesbian wedding based on religious objections.
- Blaine Adamson was ordered by the city of Lexington, Kentucky, to undergo ’sensitivity training” for refusing to print T-shirts for a gay pride festival.

A professionally shot video of Barack Obama from 1995 has recently surfaced. Shot at the Cambridge, Mass. Public Library, the video captures a skinny, youthful Obama promoting his then newly released memoir, Dreams from My Father.
In this hour-long presentation, Obama openly talks about his relationship with his mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, a Communist and pornographer. Perhaps more importantly, Obama gives us a much clearer picture of who he was in 1995, on the cusp of his political career, than we had seen before. Some observations:
The Obama of 1995 was not a very good speaker. He had a halting delivery, stuttered, was obviously nervous, and, although congenial enough, could not tell a joke. What Obama did do well was read. He read a dramatic passage from his book for a full fifteen minutes uninterrupted and used multiple voices halfway credibly.

Here’s hoping you haven’t had your corn flakes yet.
After last week’s record-setting rain fall (3.18 inches were reported at Mitchell International Airport), the expected happened once again in metro Milwaukee: Massive dumping of “blended” sewage and rain water into Lake Michigan.
But it’s the amount that’s most shocking. So much was sent into the lake last week, it was double the amount MMSD discharged in all of 2014.

When newsrooms run with stories too good to be true, they should diversify their ranks.
“So, basically, my butt refuted The New York Times.”
The Times had editorialized that the NRA was a bunch of hypocrites because although attendees with gun permits were allowed to carry guns on the convention floor, those guns were actually neutered by having the firing pins removed: “Seventy-thousand people are expected to attend the National Rifle Association’s convention opening (last Friday) in Tennessee, and not one of them will be allowed to come armed with guns that can actually shoot. After all the NRA propaganda about how ‘good guys with guns’ are needed to be on guard across American life, from elementary schools to workplaces, the weekend’s gathering of disarmed conventioneers seems the ultimate in hypocrisy.”
A damning assertion of hypocrisy — except that it wasn’t even close to true. The only guns with firing pins removed were the display guns on the convention floor. In fact, several gun bloggers tweeted a photo of themselves carrying fully functional firearms from the press room, forcing The Times into an embarrassing — though still incomplete — correction. It was especially embarrassing because a simple check of the NRA website or The Tennessean would have revealed the truth. But The Times‘ editors saw a chance to score a cheap shot and got carried away in their excitement. (MSNBC got burned, too.)

In an industry where only liberal ideas are “allowed,” many libertarians and conservatives keep their political views secret.
Deep in Silicon Valley, where the free market reigns and the exchange of ideas is celebrated, a subset of tech workers are hiding their true selves. Working as programmers and software engineers, they don’t want the stigma that comes with revealing who they really are.
They’re the tech company employees, startup founders, and CEOs who vote for and donate to Republican candidates, bucking the Bay Area’s liberal supremacy. Fearing the repercussions of associating with a much-maligned minority, they keep their political views fiercely hidden.
“It’s a liberal echo chamber,” Garrett Johnson, a co-founder of Lincoln Labs, which was started in 2013 to connect the right-of-center outsiders in Silicon Valley, told National Journal. “People have been convinced that Silicon Valley is reflexively liberal or progressive. And so their response is to conform.”

The controversy surrounding Dr. Ben Carson illustrates a national crisis that has been ignored – and tolerated – for far too long.
Carson, a renowned neurosurgeon, burst onto the national scene with his resounding National Prayer Breakfast address in February. His conservative views have made him the Right’s newest star. The inconvenient fact that he is an African-American conservative does not sit well with the Left, however, which has hammered away at Carson since Day One with a variety of methods ranging from dismissing him, ridiculing him, attempting to drive a wedge between Carson and conservatives, and (most recently) a full-on attack over Carson’s gay-marriage remarks last week (a matter that should not have provoked a controversy, as I wrote on this site).
