Serial Liar Susan Rice Calls For Immediate Cease-Fire In Gaza

According to Politico President Obama sent his lying lackey Susan Rice out to demand that Israel go for the stupid peace that John Kerry tried to foist on them.

Rice, you may remember, was the UN Ambassador at the time she was sent out to tell the world that the attack on the US compound in Benghazi, Libya was the result of an amateur video about Mohammed that was made in the United States.

From Politico:

It’s the U.S. view, as well, that the death toll and the civilian toll in Gaza is rising in an alarming pace,” Rice continued. “It’s a concern that is grave and deepening on the part of the United States, the American people and the entire international community.”

Rice proceeded to call for “an immediate, unconditional humanitarian cease-fire,” echoing what President Barack Obama and his top officials have said in recent days.”

Who would believe anything that comes from this woman? Who would pay any attention to her? Certainly not Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He is a practical man with a job to do. He has been burned by these idiots before.

White House Says Israelis Dissed Kerry

Israel’s leaders are not concerned with Secretary of State Kerry’s bruised feelings. They are trying – again – to save their country and its people from annihilation. Kerry, at the direction of the White House, put together a proposal for a peace agreement that gave Hamas everything they wanted and Israel nothing. Israeli leaders rightly rejected the childish proposal unanimously and Israeli media called Kerry and the proposal stupid. They were right.

From the Associated Press:

US FUMING OVER ISRAELI CRITICISM OF KERRY

WASHINGTON (AP) — Obama administration officials were fuming Monday over a torrent of Israeli criticism of Secretary of State John Kerry’s latest bid to secure a cease-fire between Israel and Hamas.

In unusually harsh language, officials said the criticism of Kerry could put the relationship between the U.S. and Israel in jeopardy. They also said the personal attacks on Kerry crossed a line and were particularly disappointing at a time of active conflict.

Israeli media commentators have leveled almost nonstop criticism at Kerry in recent days over his attempts to bring Qatar and Turkey — two countries viewed by Israel as strong Hamas supporters — into the cease-fire negotiations. Kerry was also being accused of abandoning some of Israel’s key demands during the negotiations.”

Update: The Prez tells the world where his sentiments lie. Here is a celebration from White House.gov website:

Statement by the President on the Occasion of Eid-al-Fitr

As Muslims throughout the United States and around the world celebrate Eid-al-Fitr, Michelle and I extend our warmest wishes to them and their families. This last month has been a time of fasting, reflection, spiritual renewal, and service to the less fortunate. While Eid marks the completion of Ramadan, it also celebrates the common values that unite us in our humanity and reinforces the obligations that people of all faiths have to each other, especially those impacted by poverty, conflict, and disease.

In the United States, Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy. That is why we stand with people of all faiths, here at home and around the world, to protect and advance their rights to prosper, and we welcome their commitment to giving back to their communities.

On behalf of the Administration, we wish Muslims in the United States and around the world a blessed and joyous celebration. Eid Mubarak.”

CNN Poll: “Romney Tops Obama…”

“… But loses to Clinton.”

cnn-orc-poll-romney-obama-story-top

If a rematch of the 2012 presidential election were held today, GOP nominee Mitt Romney would top President Barack Obama in the popular vote, according to a new national survey.

But a CNN/ORC International poll also indicates that if Romney changes his mind and runs again for the White House, Hillary Clinton would best him by double digits in a hypothetical showdown.”

Obama: “I don’t get no respect”.

Nah. Hillary Might Not Run

Hillary Clinton, like Bill, Donna Shalala, Bill Ayers, etc. is still stuck in the sixties and seventies. Here we have a Hillary ad that is promoting Her as a Presidential candidate. What other reason would this be made?

It sounds suspiciously like a seventies ad for Coca Cola. I liked the Mean Joe Green ad better.

Hill, it’s not the seventies any more.

Dems Push for Pathway to Citizenship for Dreamers Via Military Service

Democrats held a press conference on Friday to announce the introduction of a House resolution calling for the Secretary of Defense to allow illegal aliens brought to the country as children who have been granted temporary legal status by President Barack Obama’s 2012 executive order to serve in the U.S. military – a move that would also grant them a path to citizenship.

Rep. Bill Foster (D-Ill.), the sponsor of the H.R. 685, said “our broken immigration system” is to blame for restricting illegal aliens from military service.”

This is the first open attempt to give illegals the right to vote.

“The Government Is Cracking Down on School Bake Sales”

Of course they are. It’s all about regimentation, you know. The people may not make their own decisions about what they eat. The government must mandate not just nutrition standards but comfort food as well. Comfort food must be eliminated.

The people must not be comfortable.

States are trying to circumvent federal nutrition standards that would limit sugary foods at school fundraisers.

food-police

Barely a month after federal regulations for school cafeterias kicked in, states are already pushing back.

Specifically, they’re fighting nutrition standards that would considerably alter one of the most sacred rituals of the American public school system: bake sales.

Twelve states have established their own policies to circumvent regulations in the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 that apply to “competitive snacks,” or any foods and beverages sold to students on school grounds that are not part of the Agriculture Department’s school meal programs, according to the National Association of State Boards of Education. Competitive snacks appear in vending machines, school stores, and food and beverages, including items sold at bake sales.”

Israel’s Security Cabinet Rejects US Cease-Fire Proposal – Unanimously

US Secretary of State John Kerry is having some trouble convincing Israeli leaders that they should sacrifice their country and their people so he can save the Hamas terrorists.

Kerry is a worse SecStae than Hillary was.

kerryfootball

GAZA CITY — Israel’s Security Cabinet unanimously rejected a cease-fire proposal Friday that called for a week-long truce in the deadly conflict.

The proposal by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry called for a temporary pause in fighting to allow Israelis and Palestinians to broker a broader deal. Israeli TV reported the deal was rejected mainly because Israel would have to cut short its effort at destroying Hamas tunnels.”

Illinois’ Credit Rating Now Worst In The Nation

death spiral

Those darn Democrats are doing it again.

Gotta hand it to Second City Cop fir the line of the day:

No end in sight:

The outlook for the state of Illinois’ credit rating has turned negative, Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services warned today in a report.

The credit rating agency affirmed the state’s worst-in-the-nation A- bond rating, but its outlook, which had been raised to “developing” earlier this year after enactment of pension reforms, went back to negative.

That means that the state’s credit rating could be downgraded within the next two years unless its finances improve, S and P said. A lower credit rating translates into higher borrowing costs.”

Perhaps we should amend that to say “no end in sight that doesn’t mention the word ‘Detroit’. “

WGNTV says:

A warning came Saturday morning from state treasurer Dan Rutherford (R) IL State Treasurer. The Standard and Poor’s downgrade from A to A-minus puts Illinois last on the list– and means a higher cost to borrow money.

On Wednesday, the state will issue $500 million in new bonds to pay for roads and other transportation projects. Rutherford says the credit downgrade will cost taxpayers an additional $95 million in interest.”

It’s Getting Closer – Anti-Semites Turn Violent In Calgary

rally-1

This happened in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

CALGARY — One of the organizers of a pro-Palestinian protest in Calgary last Friday plans to apologize publicly to pro-Israeli demonstrators who were beaten up during the event.

It was just one of a growing list of marches across Canada and around the world that are being tainted by violence and anti-Semitic slogans.

Over the past few days, thousands of protesters have massed in Paris, Berlin, Vienna, Amsterdam and other European cities in mostly peaceful expressions of support for Palestinians in Gaza.

Some of the demonstrations have taken on a distinctly anti-Semitic tinge, although organizers said they were designed solely to protest the Israeli incursion into Gaza.”

rally-5

Careful – Language. This is happening in many places. It appears to be a coordinated effort to bring violence into the discussion. In the amateur video below you can see the pro-Hamas demonstrators verbally, and then physically attacking supporters of Israel.

The same thing is playing out wherever these clashes occur. After a while, when they find that they won’t be arrested, they escalate. In Paris the fire bombing and destruction of Jewish-owned businesses has caused Jews to flee the city.

Unless stopped by greater force this violence will become greater. And it will happen in the Untied States.

Update:

Below is a brief video that shows it is coming to the United States. The violence hasn’t begun – yet. But it will.

Recommended: “Ten Reasons Why I Am No Longer a Leftist”

This is in American Thinker. The writer describes her early years as a leftist. She was far, far left. Then, bit by bit she realized that those around her, other leftists, were unhappy, hate-filled people who strove to destroy things, people, and institutions. Surprisingly, for her, the people she and other leftists hated were builders, not destroyers. That was the beginning of her transformation. It took a while but little by little she made an about-face. She says she voted Republican in the 2012 election.

A high-profile example of leftist invective was delivered by MSNBC’s Martin Bashir in late 2013. Bashir said, on air and in a rehearsed performance, not as part of a moment’s loss of control, something so vile about Sarah Palin that I won’t repeat it here. Extreme as it is, Bashir’s comment is fairly representative of a good percentage of what I read on left-wing websites.

I could say as much about a truly frightening phenomenon, left-wing anti-Semitism, but I’ll leave the topic to others better qualified. I can say that when I first encountered it, at a PLO fundraising party in Marin County, I felt as if I had time-traveled to pre-war Berlin.

I needed to leave the left, I realized, when I decided that I wanted to spend time with people building, cultivating, and establishing, something that they loved.”

Beretta Pulls Out of Maryland

Beretta_Logo-900x211

Maryland is losing those jobs just like Colorado lost jobs when Magpul moved out. Beretta, though, is a much bigger deal. “Beretta U.S.A. anticipates that the Gallatin, Tennessee facility will involve $45 million of investment in building and equipment and the employment of around 300 employees during the next five years.”

Stupid politicians.

The day after gun control supporters [falsely] claimed that the passage of an “assault weapon” and “high-capacity magazine” ban and increased concealed carry requirements reduced firearms-related crime in Maryland, Italian gunmaker Beretta announced that it’s moving all of its manufacturing out of Maryland and into Tennessee. GM Jeff Cooper left no doubt that The Free State’s post-Newtown push for civilian disarmament (a.k.a., Bill SB281) triggered the move . . .

During the legislative session in Maryland that resulted in passage of the Firearm Safety Act of 2013, the version of the statute that passed the Maryland Senate would have prohibited Beretta U.S.A. from being able to manufacture, store or even import into the State products that we sell to customers throughout the United States and around the world. While we were able in the Maryland House of Delegates to reverse some of those obstructive provisions the possibility that such restrictions might be reinstated in the future leaves us very worried about the wisdom of maintaining a firearm manufacturing factory in the State.”

“Since Obama became President, 1.5 MILLION people have been added to secret “suspected terrorist” list”

From Doug Ross:

It would seem that the era of hope and change ended about the time that Barack Obama took his oath of office.

The scale of the [federal government's] secret [terror] blacklist was revealed in a civil suit over the Terrorist Screening Database, and it shocked the judge.

99 percent of the names submitted to the list are accepted; the court called this “wildly loose.” The database has grown from 227,932 names in 2009 to its current stratospheric heights. There is no official, public procedure for having your name removed from the list. The US government is seeking to end the trial by invoking state secrecy.”

The Associated Press has the raw stats:

In fiscal 2009, which ended Sept. 30, 2009, 227,932 names were nominated to the database. In fiscal 2010, which includes the months after the attempted Christmas bombing, nominations rose to 250,847. In fiscal 2012, they increased to 336,712, and in fiscal 2013 — the most recent year provided — nominations jumped to 468,749.””

Why Is The Congress Willing To Cede Its Powers To The President?

Liberal law professor Jonathan Turley warns about the rise of the ‘Uber Presidency’. In this video he explains that Congress is willingly handing its authority over to the President – and that is wrong. He says,

Our system is changing and this body is the one branch that must act if we’re to reverse those changes. We’re seeing the emergence of a different model of government, a model long ago rejected by the framers. A dominant presidency has occurred with very little Congressional opposition. Indeed, when President Obama pledged to circumvent Congress, he received rapturous applause from the very body that he was proposing to make practically irrelevant. Now many members are contesting the right of this institution to even be heard in federal court. This Body Is Moving From Self-Loathing To Self-Destruction”

Why would they do that? Why would Congress not merely stand by while the Executive strips their powers, but embrace the act? They are making themselves irrelevant.

Turley says part of it is because we have grown impatient with the checks and balances and are falling victim to a person who says, “I can get it done”. He warns that that is dangerous and not at all what our founders sought. In fact they warned against it.

There is a transcript of Turley’s remarks at Real Clear Politics.

Megyn Kelly asks him some excellent and pointed questions in this next video. His answers are powerful. At the end Kelly recommends Turley’s blog. Here is a link to it. He deals with a wide range of legal subjects. I have bookmarked it.

Elizabeth Warren Defines Utopia

elizabeth warren speaking

Warren spoke on Friday at Netroots Nation, a convention for liberal bloggers and activists. She was very well received. During the speech she outlined eleven tenets that Progressives believe. This is a rather interesting thing for a politician who is being considered for the Presidency to do. It will alienate many in the business world. As well as others who don’t believe that utopia is possible.

- We believe that Wall Street needs stronger rules and tougher enforcement, and we’re willing to fight for it.”

- “We believe in science, and that means that we have a responsibility to protect this Earth.”

- “We believe that the Internet shouldn’t be rigged to benefit big corporations, and that means real net neutrality.”

- “We believe that no one should work full-time and still live in poverty, and that means raising the minimum wage.”

- “We believe that fast-food workers deserve a livable wage, and that means that when they take to the picket line, we are proud to fight alongside them.”

- “We believe that students are entitled to get an education without being crushed by debt.”

- “We believe that after a lifetime of work, people are entitled to retire with dignity, and that means protecting Social Security, Medicare, and pensions.”

- “We believe—I can’t believe I have to say this in 2014—we believe in equal pay for equal work.”

- “We believe that equal means equal, and that’s true in marriage, it’s true in the workplace, it’s true in all of America.”

- “We believe that immigration has made this country strong and vibrant, and that means reform.”

- “And we believe that corporations are not people, that women have a right to their bodies. We will overturn Hobby Lobby and we will fight for it. We will fight for it!”

And the main tenet of conservatives’ philosophy, according to Warren? “I got mine. The rest of you are on your own.”

“Texas Jury Refuses To Indict Man Who Shot and Killed Officer During ‘No Knock’ Raid”

If you are a police officer and you engage in a ‘No-knock raid’ you might be killed. And the shooting may be called justified. This happened in Texas. Henry Magee was the subject of such a raid. He says he thought he was being robbed and acted to protect his pregnant girlfriend and children. The Grand Jury believed him and refused to indict him for the capitol murder charge he was arrested on.

Henry Magee

Henry Goedrich Magee

Here are two sources. First is an article in the Washington Post titled, “Some justice in Texas: The raid on Henry Magee”.

Last December 19th, nine of the 10 members of the Burleson County Sheriff’s Department staged a raid on the rural home of Henry Magee. An informant had told Deputy Adam Sowders that Magee was running a major marijuana grow. They’d find 12-14 plants, all over six fee tall, the informant said. Magee also had, according to the informant, a vicious dog and several guns, one of which had been stolen from the Burleson County Sheriff’s Department.

By the time the raid was over, Deputy Adam Sowder was dead. Magee shot him as Sowder and his fellow deputies attempted to force their way into Magee’s home. Magee was arrested and charged with capital murder — the knowing and intentional killing of a police officer.”

Second is an essay written by Jonathan Turley in Ammoland.com. Turley writes:

We have previously discussed our concerns over the seemingly exponential increase in “no knock” raids in the country where police give no warning before raiding a home. (here and here and here and here and here and here)

Now in a remarkable ruling, a Texas grand jury has refused to indict Goedrich Magee, 20, who shot and killed a law enforcement officer, Burleson County Sgt. Adam Sowders, 31, during a no knock entrance into his home. Magee said that he thought he was being robbed and acted to protect his pregnant girlfriend and children. The grand jury “no billed” the case in February.

We have seen other such mistaken self-defense cases arise around the country as police increasingly use these no knock warrants. Magistrate and judges appear to give little thought to approving such warrants despite a ruling earlier by the Supreme Court limiting their use.”

It is time that police departments rethink their use of no-knock raids. Especially if they are based on a sole informant. We have seen this before. People frequently make false claims against others – for many reasons. In this case the informant claimed Magee had six-foot high pot plants, a bunch of guns – including one that was stolen from the police. None of his information was true.

Police officers put themselves in situations like this unnecessarily. Their superiors order them to do it. Their superiors seem to care little for their officers. Entries like these should be reserved for truly violent suspects.

It Seems Even ‘Tingles’ Has Lost The Tingle

Everyone, even Chris Matthews, objects to President Obama’s casual, callous reference to the shoot down of Malaysian flight 17 over Ukraine. The reference was short and unfeeling. Then he went back to fundraising and schmoozing.

Obama-beer

Matthews became nostalgic for an earlier time and an earlier President; a President who said what Americans were feeling. That was a President who made us all proud to be Americans.

Matthews is losing the tingle.

“Terrible Tragedy” vs. Murder

Terrible Tragedy

The Russian military shot down a Boeing 777 aircraft filled with 280 passengers and 18 crewmembers, of which it is believed 23 are American citizens. The missile that killed these people was intentionally fired from a Russian “buk” class missile system from within the borders of the Russia by Russian military personnel. This happened three days after the Russians did the same to a Ukrainian cargo aircraft and the same day as a Ukrainian ground attack aircraft.

After talking with Russian President Vladmir Putin, who engineered the strife in the Ukraine to benefit himself and his nation, President Barack Obama said, “It looks like it might be a terrible tragedy.”

A “terrible tragedy?”

A fucking “terrible tragedy”?

No, President Obama, a “terrible tragedy” is a goddamn house fire that gets put out and some wedding photos get singed. This is the fucking MURDER of more than 300 people, of which nearly two dozen you supposedly represent!

One of the many problems that plagued President Jimmy Carter was that he was unable to tell the difference between a country led by evil men bent on world domination (the Soviet Union) and a nation of free people who desired peace, commerce, and prosperity (the United States). Apparently our current President is not only just as useless as Carter, he’s simply incapable of speaking the truth when it comes to our enemies even when it’s obvious to everyone around him.

And, oh yeah, President Retard, the American Public called the 1980s and said we want to borrow their defense plans. And their President, on account of the fact that the one we have sucks.

Concealed Carrier Defends Herself, Helps Destroy Carjacking and Robbery Gang

Victoria Davison was going to her car when she was attacked by brazen carjackers that had been terrorizing citizens in Milwaukee and Wauwatosa, Wisconsin.

The difference between Davison and the previous victims is that she was able to get her hands on the concealed weapon she kept in her car.

Victoria Davison said two boys came up behind her and one of them shouted for her to give up her keys.

According to Davison, one of the robbers told her, “I want the keys, car, everything.”

Davison said when she didn’t produce the keys fast enough, one of the boys said, “Go get the cannon.”

Thinking it meant a gun, Davison managed to unzip her gym bag, produce her own concealed gun, and fired at one of the boys.

“I shot the one that was in front of me. The one in the back of me, he said a curse word, and then he looked at his friend, and then he ran off while his friend was on the ground,” Davison said.””
