How can the Obama Regime (possibly) put forward lies about who attacked whom near the Gaza Strip, and how can the NY Times print such lies and not be sued by the Israeli Government?
“The officials say that Israel’s deadly attack on a flotilla…”
Did officials inside the Obama Regime actually say this or is the NY Times making sh** up again?
Watch the video and decide for yourself who was being attacked. (I am so sick of these criminals; i.e. the White House and Sestak, Romanoff, Blagovich, and the Times’ bashing of Palin). Gateway Pundit has the story of this video broken down.
Back to the Lame Stream Media in all it’s ‘burning to ashes’ glory. Let’s all just assume that this is a true story.
WASHINGTON — The Obama administration considers Israel’s blockade of Gaza to be untenable and plans to press for another approach to ensure Israel’s security while allowing more supplies into the impoverished Palestinian area, senior American officials said Wednesday.
Another approach? Like the one Israel just tried with bringing in humanitarian aid and Hamas stopped? Like Obama really gives a hoot about what happens to Israel, AND HAS ANY SAY IN IT! This guy has such delusions of grandeur, it ain’t funny. Has anybody told this guy yet that he will not be going down in history for anything positive and of substance? Don’t nobody mention Obamacare…
The officials say that Israel’s deadly attack on a flotilla trying to break the siege and the resulting international condemnation create a new opportunity to push for increased engagement with the Palestinian Authority and a less harsh policy toward Gaza.
Everybody should know that Israel was put in a ‘damned if you do and damned if you don’t’ political situation. Even Egypt tried to stop this flotilla because they happen to have ring-side seats and know what’s going on.
“There is no question that we need a new approach to Gaza,” said one official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the policy shift is still in the early stages. He was reflecting a broadly held view in the upper reaches of the administration.
“They need a new approach”? How about kicking the terrorists out of Gaza so normal people can get on with their lives on both sides? How ’bout that?
Glenn starts out this show with the explanation behind dumping a news story on a Friday, especially the Friday of a holiday weekend. For example, the story of the FTC’s report on saving journalism. Glenn also broke his own rules by bringing the pRetender’s family into his radio program last friday. He then covers the politics of division in our country, the media’s move away from covering the truth, and why so many Americans still have their heads in the sand.
I just love that term, pantywaist, don’t you. Remember how he choked during the Somali pirate crisis? Does anybody think Sarah Palin, John McCain, or even British MP, Daniel Hannan would be allowing I’madinnerjacket the leeway that Obama has given the crazed Iranian dictator in the last few months? I’madinnerjacket is waving his private parts at Obama’s auntie.
TEHRAN (Reuters) – Iran test-fired short-range missiles as its elite Revolutionary Guards began war games on Sunday aimed at boosting the Islamic Republic’s deterrent capabilities, official media reported.
The missile maneuvers coincide with increased tension in nuclear dispute with the West, after last week’s disclosure by Tehran that it is building a second uranium enrichment plant.
State radio said the Guards on Monday would test-fire the Shahab 3 missile, which Iranian officials say has a range of around 2,000 km, potentially putting Israel and U.S. bases in the Gulf within reach. It has been tested several times before.
Iran’s English-language Press TV said two short-range missiles as well as a multiple missile launcher were tested on the exercise’s first day.
Iran has said it would respond to any attack by targeting U.S. interests in the region and Israel, as well as closing the Strait of Hormuz, a vital route for world oil supplies.
What do you think Bibi and the rest of Israel are doing right now?
This would be Today’s AYFKM? Award going to the Usurper-In-Charge who just loves to hate America!
Did anyone here think that he would actually be paying attention to the country during a time of crisis? I know I am a sick puppy after the last 2 years of dealing with Bambi, because I cannot stop laughing!
WASHINGTON – The U.S. declared a public health emergency Sunday to deal with the emerging new swine flu, much like the government does to prepare for approaching hurricanes.
Officials reported 20 U.S. cases of swine flu in five states so far, with the latest in Ohio and New York. Unlike in Mexico where the same strain appears to be killing dozens of people, cases in the United State have been mild — and U.S. health authorities can’t yet explain why.
“As we continue to look for cases, we are going to see a broader spectrum of disease,” predicted Dr. Richard Besser, acting chief of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “We’re going to see more severe disease in this country.”
At a White House news conference, Besser and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano sought to assure Americans that health officials are taking all appropriate steps to minimize the impact of the outbreak.
ANDREWS AIR FORCE BASE, Md. – President Barack Obama took advantage of the summer conditions in Washington on Sunday to play a round of golf for the first time since taking office.
His motorcade left the White House at midmorning Sunday for the course at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland.
Obama arrived at the course wearing sunglasses, a cream-colored baseball cap, short-sleeved shirt and khaki shorts. He shook hands with a few other golfers and waved to other onlookers before stepping into a golf cart driven by the course’s general manager, Mike Thomas.
Joining the president were Commerce Secretary Gary Locke, U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk and presidential aide Marvin Nicholson.
The Courses at Andrews Air Force Base is a popular destination for presidents because of its proximity to the White House and the security it offers on a military base. Presidents George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush all played there.

The Israel/Hamas conflict is all over the news and the blogosphere, and this conflict is just a symptom of an ever growing tide of Islamic Fascism that is covering our planet. According to the FBI, the most wanted terrorists in the world are all Muslims. (h/t Gateway Pundit)
With all the concerns in the liberal PUMA blogosphere, a story from Sultan Knish may be lost in the writings about The Resident Evil and his whackjob appointees. I wanted to make sure that this story is seen on the other side of the aisle; so to speak, and to let anybody who wants to know, that I back Israel 100% because I am a student of history and understand what the possible outcome of the destruction of Israel would mean in terms of global re-alignment. It strikes me that the Palestinian people are being held hostage by their own “government” (as seen by weapons being stored at a school), and that more coverage should zero in on the actual plight of the Palestinian people caused by the greed of the Palestinian Authority and Hamas, instead of all the Israel bashing I am seeing. Did not Hamas go from being a terrorist organization rocketing Israel to a government entity sponsoring state sanctioned terrorism in a form of “undeclared war”?
I greatly admire and respect our Constitution when it comes to religious freedom, and I also wish that the world could embrace that tenet, yet I realize that this has become a “war” between the West (America, Europe, Israel – basically Christian nations) and the Eastern Muslim nations. Our ‘christian’ tenets do not state “convert or die”. Which religion will actually lead to heaven? Is there a heaven? These are questions left for philosophers and scholars. I am of the opinion that ANY fundamentalist religious sect (those that impose their belief systems on everybody else including christian sects) should be muzzled and shackled…and Israel MUST NOT be left twisting in the wind……just my opinion….
Synagogues set aflame, mobs marching through Jewish neighborhoods shouting hateful slogans against Jews, boycotts of Jewish owned businesses and assaults and murders of Jews in Europe were supposed to have ended with the fall of the Third Reich. But thanks to Muslim immigration they are once again a part of life for the Jewish communities of Europe.
Europe after the war vowed to resist fascism and prevent the Holocaust from ever happening again, but in the name of tolerance, Islamofascism has found a home in Europe, and attacks on Jews have once again become commonplace. Tolerance for Fascism gives the serpent a warm place in the nation’s bosom to grow and spawn, and tolerance for Islam has made not just the Jews of Europe, but all of Europe into the targets of Muslim brutality and terror.
The latest assaults and Synagogue burnings taking place across Europe, in Britain, Sweden and France, is only the latest ring of an alarm bell warning that the dreadful events of the 1930’s are beginning to repeat themselves. Just as then, Fascism has many defenders who are all too willing to let Muslims play the victim of the Jews, as the Nazis were allowed to play at being the victims of Europe, until it was much too late.
Those who enable the modern day Fascism of Islam by allowing the brute to play the victim are however should be aware that they not doing anyone a favor. Coddling Nazism and agitating for its appeasement did not prevent war, it brought on a horrifying war that left much of Europe in ruins. Coddling Islam and agitating for its appeasement will not usher in some sort of utopian multicultural society, but a horrifying war in which the devastation in Afghanistan and Iraq, and the bombings of 9/11, 7/11 and the Madrid Train Bombings are only the early rumblings of a much larger conflict.
The Nazis first came for the Jews, and no one spoke up. By the time they were done, a great charnel house stretched from London to deep inside Russia, torched homes moaned in the wind and the cemeteries and trenches of Europe were filled with the dead. The Muslims have come for the Jews, but they have not stopped there and will not stop there. Across Europe the slow realization is growing that Islamofascism cannot be quieted with appeasement and that the wave of Muslim terror continues to spread.
It is very possible that I feel this way because not only were the Jews slaughtered by the Nazis, but gypsies and other “outsiders” were too. I am tired of genocide being “okay”. The Fundamentalist Muslims need to get over themselves.
I have very radical views of what should be happening in Iraq and Iran; so I will continue to keep them to myself, but I do believe y’all should know that Iran is trying to get into the dance between Israel and Hamas because they just have not been the center of everybody’s universe every single days of our lives, and it seems the students have way too much time on their hands; not unlike a certain “princess” who has too much time on her hands, so, of course, she is campaigning for a senate seat she is neither qualfied for nor deserves.
