Watchdog Alleges U.S. State Dept. Interfering in Israeli Elections

NGO Monitor accuses State of funding an anti-Netanyahu campaign.

An Israeli watchdog organization, NGO Monitor, which seeks to track foreign funding of radical non-governmental organizations (NGOs) operating in Israel with a Leftist agenda, has taken aim at the U.S. State Department. They are charging the State Department with funding a campaign with the purpose of defeating current Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in the upcoming March elections.

An American-based organization called OneVoice International, which claims to be an “international grassroots movement that amplifies the voice of mainstream Israelis and Palestinians,” has received two grants from the State Department over the last year. The group is cooperating with Israeli Leftist organization V15 in its anti-Netanyahu campaign.

The Perfect Way For The French To Prove They Are Charlie

Millions of French men and women are proclaiming Je suis Charlie - I am Charlie - as we all know. But saying it is not proving it. That must be done by doing, by concrete action.

Yes, they can agitate and demand their government do what’s necessary - such as:

We’re Thankful for Global Warming

If not, How much colder would it be?

Science displays at Wisconsin State Parks will tell you that glaciers covered our landscape, ending just 12,000 years ago.

We’re talking Ice Age. During the several (yes, more than one) ice ages that Wisconsin has experienced, glaciers reached as far south as southern Illinois.

This means that ice, up to a MILE-THICK, covered this state, and carved out features like the Kettle Moraine. A six-inch snowfall like we get now and then in winter is not what caused these earth changes.

More glacial maps from NationalAtlas.gov and UW-Green Bay.

Question: What did the Indians do back then to cause the ice to melt away? Or did they just happen to be the first settlers after the ice melted away? Melted then, by what?

Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité: 225 Years of an Unchanging Left

The same goals, since the French Revolution.

Plus ça change, say the French, plus c’est la même chose. The more things change, the more they stay the same. This is certainly true of revolutionary rhetoric: 225 years after the French Revolution, the demands of the Left can still be summed up in the three words of the Jacobin slogan — liberté, égalité, fraternité. Not only do those words sum up the Left, they provide a vivid contrast between the values of a civil society based on biblical morality and the Left’s skewed views.

Liberté: Thomas Jefferson saw “liberty” as one of the fundamental, natural-law rights of man, enshrined alongside “life” and the “pursuit of happiness” in the American Declaration of Independence. The Constitution was later designed to preserve and protect natural rights.

Yet “liberty” does not mean freedom from discipline or restraint. John Adams declared of the American Constitution that it was fit only for a “moral and religious people.”

Charlie Hebdo massacre: how the West will respond

The story so far: 12 people, including two policemen, have been murdered at the offices of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo by two hooded men wielding AK47s. In 2011 the magazine was firebombed after running a caricature of the Prophet Muhammad. Charlie Hebdo’s most recent tweet, before the latest attack, was a cartoon featuring the leader of Islamic State, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

Here’s what will happen next.

The Socialist Mind Game: A Brief Manual

We are being played; it’s time we learned the game.

Conservatives have their Constitution. Progressives have their Narrative. The current battle for America is between these two concepts, and each side uses different rules to fight it.

One set of rules is consistent with an unchanging objective: limited government and individual freedoms. The other side’s rules are as fickle as their goals, which are never fully disclosed beyond the equivocal references to fairness and hyphenated forms of justice. They will have to remain vague and deny their true allegiances until a time when American voters will no longer squirm at the word “socialism.”

And yet spotting them isn’t that hard. As a bird is known by his feathers, socialists are known by their Game.

First tried and mastered in the USSR, the Game has since been popularized around the world, assuming various forms, names, and colors — from red to brown to green. It is now taking hold in the United States under the blue web banners of Obama’s campaign infomercials.

Condemning Taliban By Name Too Embarrassing For Obama

War On Terror: The Taliban outdoes even the Islamic State in its latest atrocity extravaganza. In deploring the attack, the president conveniently omits mention of the group he led the U.S. in surrender to.

British Comedian John Cleese in his farcical show “Fawlty Towers” got howls with his skit about hotel staff being under strict orders not to “mention the war” while German guests were staying. Cleese’s buffoonish hotel owner Basil Fawlty preceded to ask them if they’d like some “Hermann Goering” when he meant “pickled herring.”

Back in 2008, Cleese offered candidate Obama his services as speechwriter — a joke, presumably. But who knows, maybe Cleese is helping craft President Obama’s statements. Because in reacting to a blood-curdling Taliban attack on a Pakistan school on Tuesday that lasted over eight hours and left at least 132 children and 10 staff, including the principal, dead, the president didn’t mention the Taliban.

Unlebenswertiges Leben: ‘Life Unworthy of Life’

The eugenics movement is alive and well, still influencing public policy

The title is a literally untranslatable bit of National Socialist jargon which is usually clumsily rendered into English as: “life unworthy of life.”

It was used in the discussion of what are today called “quality of life” issues regarding people born with physical and mental defects, suffering from incurable ailments, and seemingly at the end of their “useful” lives. Another quaint term for such people, likewise untranslatable in its sheer cruelty, was nutzlose Fresser, “useless eaters” (to convey a little more of the original’s flavor: fressen is what animals do, essen is what humans do).

The doctrine embodied in these terms was hardly original with the Nazis (a shorthand expression, too widely used, which conceals the actual nature and origins of the movement called the Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei, or “National Socialist German Workers’ Party”). Its origins lay in the eugenics movement, which was a feature of late 19th and early 20th century Western “civilization.” This was one of the more sinister developments of Darwinistic evolutionary theory.

The Gods Have Made Them Mad

It used to strike me as impossible for global warming to cause cold weather. Then I realized that I could chill a soft drink in the oven if there were no room left in the refrigerator to bake a cake.

Up until then I did not know that the same cause can have opposite effects. In my unenlightened state, it never occurred to me that carbon dioxide could cause both excessive heat and excessive cold, both drought and flood.

I should have known. After all, we calm hyperactive children with stimulants and cure addiction to drugs with addicting drugs. When the government goes too far in debt, it borrows more money. We achieve diversity through uniformity. We overcome racism with racism. When children don’t learn, we send them to schools that don’t teach. We question authority by believing the authorities.

How Eisenhower solved illegal border crossings from Mexico

George W. Bush isn’t the first Republican president to face a full-blown immigration crisis on the US-Mexican border.

Fifty-three years ago, when newly elected Dwight Eisenhower moved into the White House, America’s southern frontier was as porous as a spaghetti sieve. As many as 3 million illegal migrants had walked and waded northward over a period of several years for jobs in California, Arizona, Texas, and points beyond.

President Eisenhower cut off this illegal traffic. He did it quickly and decisively with only 1,075 United States Border Patrol agents – less than one-tenth of today’s force. The operation is still highly praised among veterans of the Border Patrol.

20 Ways Media Completely Misread Congress’ Weak-Sauce Benghazi Report

On September 11, 2012, Islamist militants attacked U.S. complexes in Benghazi, Libya. Ambassador Chris Stevens was killed, the first U.S. Ambassador killed in the line of duty since 1979. Three other men were killed and 10 were injured.

The media immediately turned it into a political story, focusing more anger on Mitt Romney’s comments about the administration’s blaming of a YouTube video critical of Islam than determining the facts of the attack itself. Many in the media thought it fine that President Obama jetted off to a high-dollar fundraiser before the bodies cooled. When various high-level government officials blamed either a YouTube video critical of Islam — or our laws protecting free speech, it didn’t generate much controversy among big media.

The media tended to parrot White House talking points about the attack even years later. So even though everyone with knowledge of the scene in Benghazi knew otherwise, the New York Times was claiming until Friday — just this past Friday — that al Qaeda had nothing to do with the attack on Benghazi.
