Israel Isn't Alone in Disliking Kerry's Ceasefire Proposal
Lucy Schouten tells us that Israel did not like Secretary of State John Kerry’s ceasefire proposal and made no secret of their displeasure.
Well, no kidding.
By my count, there have been at least five ceasefires all of which Hamas has broken. The difference between the other negotiated ceasef
Over at NRO this morning is a lengthy, clear-as-a-bell article by Andrew McCarthy on impeachment. A few weeks back in this space I reviewed Andy’s superb book Faithless Execution: Building the Political Case for Obama’s Impeachment.

What’s life without a little mystery? Three giant holes have suddenly appeared in the wastes of Siberia. The first emerged a couple weeks ago, a crater leading down a funnel to an icy lake below, its diameter nearly 262 feet. That prompted an inconclusive investigation. Now two more holes hav
As Larry Thornberry informed us last night, Vin Scully will be broadcasting Dodger games in 2015. As Larry noted, the announcement was made by Dodger players Hyun-Jin Ryu in Korean, Yasiel Puig in Spanish and Justin Turner in English in between innings of last night's Dodgers-Braves game. It will b
The ‘Myths’ Of Gaza
Are "Jewish leaders" misleading the public about the conflict? Hardly.
Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis has the support of a New York-based sex shop, whose owners insist she is a “valid candidate.”
Gerrie Blum and Mitch Kessler, the owners of ASWGT, Inc., or Adam and Gillian’s Sensual Whips and Toys, donated $40 to Davis’s campaig
AP Claim: Israeli Unity Means Dissent is 'Silenced'
The Associated Press, noting the overwhelming support among Israelis for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the war effort in Gaza, concludes that the minority of Israelis who dissent are being "silenced." It is a tired, false charge often made by Israeli and Jewish leftists even during p

Wednesday, the State of Oklahoma filed a motion to inform a federal judge of “newly-discovered facts” in the state’s challenge of Obamacare. These new facts were two audio tapes of Jonathan Gruber, the Obamacare Architect, stating that Obamacare subsidies are tied only to the exi
The language of the legislation that House GOP leadership will offer a vote on to win over conservatives on a border crisis bill contains significant differences from language Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) introduced a couple weeks ago. The original Cruz-Blackburn legis
Time for Hamas's Hollywood Sympathizers to Snap out of It!
They look at pictures of Palestinians, who truly are suffering in this war, which Hamas and it's terrorist army have perpetrated against Israel and our civilian population, and they "feel their pain"
I have been somewhat confused by the conservative ire rising as a result of leading conservative figures going to the border to assist church groups in delivering relief.

War on Who? Eric Holder Sues Police Dept. for Treating Women as Equals
Eric Holder is suing a state police force, because their employment requirements for women are the same as those for men… Whoa. So this is what “progress” looks like, huh?
In June, President Barack Obama sent a letter to Congress asking for help to address the surge of illegal crossings at the Texas-Mexico border. Among other items, Obama asked Congress to grant him the legal authority "to exercise discretion in processing the return and removal of unaccompanied minor

On Wednesday’s Special Report, Charles Krauthammer said that Democrats will come to rue their response to President Obama’s executive overreach.

Why are top Republicans so determined to cut themselves off at the knees?
The GOP believes it has a problem: President Obama calculates that it helps him and hurts Republicans to claim, falsely, that Republicans are about to impeach him, so that is what Democrats are doing. As I argued before &mda
I thoroughly enjoyed Charles C.W. Cooke’s piece today about liberal nerd-worship. This part is spot-on:
The pose is, of course, little more than a ruse — our professional “nerds” being, like Mrs. Doubtfire, stereotypical facsimiles of the real thing. They have the patois b

It should have been a pretty straightforward case. Retired Venezeulan general Hugo Carvajal, who was a close confidant of the late Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez and head of Venezuela’s intelligence service, was indicted in Miami on federal charges of drug trafficking. Via the Wall Street Jo
Poor ol’ Wendy Davis. She wore her pink sneakers and filibustered pro-life legislation. The media made her a national hero for kid killers. And they she had to do something besides look pretty and filibuster. It all started falling apart. Turns out she claimed in court she had mental health i
A U.N. school in Gaza was recently hit by some Israeli shells. It appears to be the result of the IDF aiming for some Hamas forces nearby. Unsurprisingly, the White House was among the first in line to condemn Israel for this. An Associated Press release reports: The White House condemned the shell
Let’s say that I had some oversight authority over liberal groups or individuals. Or that I could do things to make life more difficult for those groups. And let’s say that I wrote the right-wing equivalent of what Lois Lerner wrote about conservatives (according to her, we’re app
