**Written by Doug Powers Maybe this administration thinks that whole “Israel being a longtime powerful ally of the United States” era was over-rated anyway, because as Israel battles Hamas, Team Obama is offering a vocal defense of… John Kerry: The Obama administration pushed back strongly Monday at a torrent of Israeli criticism over Secretary of State John Kerry's latest bid to secure a cease-fire with Hamas, accusing some in Israel of launching a “misinformation campaign” against the top Amer...

Pelosi: Qataris have told me Hamas is a humanitarian organization

**Written by Doug Powers Here's a shorter version of Nancy Pelosi: Israel's right. Hamas is right. If we help Israel maintain their Iron Dome, Hamas can vent their anger and nobody gets hurt — it's a win/win! At least that's how I interpreted this incredibly inane doublespeak: Pelosi said the first thing to do is to “avoid conflict” that “Hamas initiated.” “[T]his has to be something where we try to have the two-state solution, that we have to support…(Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud) Abb...

Charlie Crist a sure thing to win this month’s Albert Gore Jr. Global Warming Mega-Hypocrite award

**Written by Doug Powers This is one of the funniest opening sentences to a news story I've read in a good while (via Weasel Zippers): Democrat Charlie Crist flew to an environmental press event Thursday on the private jet of a developer fined for pollution. Almost as soon Crist stepped off the 2005 Cessna 560XL, Gov. Rick Scott's campaign had photographed its tail number and traced its ownership to developer James Finch, whose company Phoenix Construction was fined at least twice for violating...

Stay classy: Nancy Pelosi’s ‘unusual breach of decorum’ on the House floor

**Written by Doug Powers During Friday night's debate about the border bill, Rep. Tom Marino apparently pushed the right buttons: In an unusual breach of decorum, even for the divided Congress, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi chased Rep. Tom Marino across the House floor, taking offense at comments by the Pennsylvania Republican during debate on the border funding bill Friday night. “We don't have law and order,” Marino began as he wrapped up his comments on the border supplemental. “My colle...

Just to be safe, if Joe Biden invites you over for a swim, politely decline

**Written by Doug Powers According to a new book, here's how Joe Biden might be planning to spend his weekend: Sure, there's a chance this isn't true, but it seems so very Biden-ish that I'd be inclined to avoid pool parties at Joe's: In “The First Family Detail,” author Ronald Kessler quotes unnamed Secret Service agents dishing about the supposedly “hidden lives” of Presidents and the other important people they protect. Biden is portrayed as being more interested in coming off as a “regular J...

The DREAMer and the nightmare: Illegal alien teen charged in brutal murder of USC engineering student from China

Screenshot via the LA Times website: Jonathan DelCarmen is 19. He came to this country illegally seven years ago, when he was 12. He fits the profile of the prototypical “DREAM” youth whom President Obama has granted administrative amnesty to (and wants to expand massively) — and whom open-borders advocates in both parties believe should be immune from deportation, showered with in-state college tuition discounts, and eligible for a driver's license and eventual citizenship. Pictured above are t...

The Environmental Corruption Agency

The Environmental Corruption Agency by Michelle MalkinCreators SyndicateCopyright 2014 The lofty motto of the Environmental Protection Agency is “protecting people and the environment.” In practice, however, EPA bureaucrats faithfully protect their own people and preserve the government's cesspool of manipulation, cover-ups and cronyism. Just last week, Mark Levin and his vigilant Landmark Legal Foundation went to court to ask federal district judge Royce Lamberth to sanction the EPA “for destr...

Mega-hypocrite Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun group ironically shoots own argument in foot

**Written by Doug Powers This is a new ad from Michael Bloomberg's group Everytown for Gun Safety, which asks “will you stop this?” Call me crazy, but the only thing I found myself saying after I watched that was “If only there had been some way that poor woman could have defended herself!” A naive, knee-jerk reaction no doubt. Meanwhile, Michael Bloomberg and his anti-gun team want everybody to believe the only way to prevent the horrible scenario depicted above is to keep potential victims una...

MSNBC host asks important question: Is world suffering from lack of racial diversity in emoticons?

**Written by Doug Powers I can't believe somebody beat Al Sharpton to discussing the important issue of emoticon diversity, but MSNBC's Ronan Farrow got there first: After wondering whether emojis, which originated in Japan, could alter “tech-driven communication across international lines,” Farrow asked McWhorter, “do you think there's a limitation we're suffering from in terms of the racial diversity of these emojis?” The linguist replied in all seriousness, “No, I think that actually what we'...

Sen. Patty Murray authors ‘Not My Boss’s Business Act’ to exempt O-care from law she voted for in ’93

**Written by Doug Powers Sen. Patty Murray has written the “Not My Boss's Business Act” as a “fix” to get around the Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby decision: Democrats and women's health groups believe they have a powerful campaign weapon in pushing back on the Supreme Court's 5-4 ruling that Hobby Lobby and other closely held for-profit companies don't have to comply with the health law's contraceptive coverage requirement if it violates the owners' religious beliefs. The bill was drafted by Sen. ...

‘Sobby Lobby’ rides again: Forget ‘it’s the law,’ Harry Reid pledges action against Hobby Lobby ruling

**Written by Doug Powers Reid should be able to focus on this in the coming weeks thanks to all the extra time freed up by not worrying about a budget combined with the fact that he's insane: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Monday that Democrats will take up legislation in the “coming weeks” to address last month's Supreme Court decision that allowed some employers with religious objections to opt out of Obamacare's contraception mandate.
