Hannity: John Kerry a ´Dumbass,´ ´Dope,´ ´Idiot´

On his Tuesday radio show, Sean Hannity went off on a rant against Secretary of State John Kerry, whose settlement offer was unanimously rejected by the Israeli, which was an unprecedented show of disapproval by that cabinet. Hannity accused the Obama administration’s head diplomat of lacking the moral clarity to understand the gravity of the threat Hamas has posed to Israel’s security. “It’s so bad, the Israeli cabinet, legendary by the way for its inability to agree on anything, actually rejected Kerry’s proposal 19-0,” Hannity said. “All across Israel, today, there’s nothing but universal condemnation for John Kerry because he’s

New York- An Ebola victim who was allowed to board an international flight was an American citizen on his way home to the United States, it has emerged. Patrick Sawyer worked for the Liberian government and was visiting his sister there when he developed symptoms while on a plane to Nigeria. He was quarantined on arrival in Lagos and died on Friday. His wife, Decontee, 34, who like Mr Sawyer is originally from Liberia, currently at the heart of the terrifying Ebola outbreak, said he had been due to travel on to America where he could have become Patient Zero

Sandra Fluke´s biggest donor is ... Sandra Fluke
Washington Examiner, by Ashe Schow    Original Article
Posted By: mitzi- 7/29/2014 4:40:35 PM     Post Reply
Liberal darling and free-birth-control advocate Sandra Fluke is her own biggest donor in her state Senate race, according to official California campaign finance reports. Fluke donated $12,000 to her campaign and $4,826.27 in non-monetary contributions. While $16,826.27 may not sound like a lot, Fluke also loaned her campaign $100,000. Where does a 2012 law school grad working as a social justice attorney get a loan that size? Her campaign never responded to a Washington Examiner inquiry, so we’re left to speculate. Perhaps the loan was in part secured by the family of Fluke’s husband, Adam Mutterperl. In 2012, Fluke married

President Obama announced new, tougher sanctions against Russia on Tuesday, as Western nations ramped up pressure on Russian President Vladimir Putin in the wake of the downing of a passenger jet in Ukraine. From the South Lawn of the White House, Obama said that the U.S would extend sanctions to major sectors of the Russian economy and three state-controlled banks. “The U.S. is imposing new sanctions in key sectors of the Russian economy: energy, arms and finance,” Obama said. “Today, Russia is once again isolating itself from the international community,” he added, saying the penalties would have even "bigger bite" because

President Barack Obama is considering using executive action to let millions of undocumented immigrants obtain work permits that would allow them stay in the U.S. legally, said a Democratic Senate aide. White House officials have told allies in Congress to expect an announcement of a large-scale action most likely in September, just before the midterm congressional elections, the aide said, asking for anonymity to discuss an unannounced plan. Obama has said he’ll act in the absence of legislation from Congress on the 12 million undocumented immigrants living in the U.S. In the House, Republican leaders have declined to bring a

A minister in Recep Tayyip Erdogan´s conservative government has outraged Turkey´s secular community by claiming that honest women should not laugh in public. Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc also urged women and men to be chaste during a meeting of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) held during Turkey´s celebration of Eid, the day marking the end of Islam´s holy month of Ramadan. "Chastity is so important. It is not only a name. It is an ornament for both women and men," Arinc said, according to Hurriyet daily newspaper.

Malaysian politician says that including dogs in opening ceremony was ´disrespectful to Malaysia and Muslims´. The Commonwealth Games, which opened last week in Glasgow, Scotland in the presence of the Queen, was, like all sporting events these days, ushered into existence to the accompaniment of a lavish and visually impressive opening ceremony. But amidst the dancing mechanical giants and gay kisses, the organizers also sought to celebrate Scottishness by having each team led out by Scottie dogs wearing tartan coats embroidered with the name of the team. Social media, predictably, fell in love with the doggies, however now political and

A hallmark of the primary season on the Democratic side was Senate candidate Michelle Nunn´s studied determination not to define herself. As of today, that´s no longer possible for her -- and it´s her own campaign´s fault. A series of internal campaign memos, totaling 144 pages and covering everything from fund-raising goals and targets to staffing needs, was leaked to National Review, which published it today. The campaign itself reportedly uploaded the plan to the Internet back in December, before quickly taking it back down. But someone found it during that brief period and -- this is the impressive part --

Sarah Palin Does Not Give Up;
Her New Web Channel Has More
Potential than Political Post
PJ Media, by Scott Ott    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 7/29/2014 3:26:21 PM     Post Reply
PJ Media’s Susan Goldberg is dead wrong about Sarah Palin’s new project. Sarah Palin has officially given up on her political career. Launching the Sarah Palin Channel, the former Alaskan governor has apparently decided to follow in Oprah’s footsteps and impact the voters where it counts: paid Internet TV. Palin isn’t the first conservative to move into the media subscription fray (Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh both beat her to it) and, thank God, unlike Kim Kardashian she isn’t establishing her solo career on a sex tape. But, at the very moment when Obama’s presidency is taking a nosedive off

A woman, a child and a baby have died in Pakistan during riots over an allegedly blasphemous Facebook post. Their home was one of several set on fire in the city of Gujranwala on Sunday and another woman miscarried during the violence. The woman, her seven-year-old granddaughter and her baby sister died of suffocation, according to police officials. The victims were members of the Ahmadi religious sect, who identify with Islam but are widely regarded as heretics in Pakistan and face persecution. Rioting erupted as rumours spread that a young Ahmadi man, identified as Saqib, shared a blasphemous picture on

Inside Hoboken’s combined junior-senior high school is a storage closet. Behind the locked door, some mothballed laptop computers are strewn among brown cardboard boxes. Others are stacked one atop another. Dozens more are stored on mobile computer carts, many of them on their last legs. That’s all that remains from a failed experiment to assign every student a laptop at Hoboken Junior Senior High School. It began five years ago with an unexpected windfall of stimulus money from Washington, D.C., and good intentions to help the district’s students,

The Huffington Post’s extremist speech giver and ‘Political Director’ Mehdi Hasan has gone to great lengths today to try and dispel what he claims are pro-Israeli myths about the current conflict between Israel and Hamas. [Snip] Nonetheless over 11,000 people have blindly shared Hasan’s article, which is full of untruths, farcical attributions, and selective quotes.

Former Gov. Jesse Ventura won his defamation case against the author of “American Sniper.” The jury awarded a total of $1.845 million: $500,000 in defamation damages and $1.345 million for “unjust enrichment” — or to be specific, $1,345,477.25. Jurors could not reach a unanimous verdict, as instructed. Instead, with the consent of both sides, they voted 8 to 2 in Ventura’s favor. (snip) District Judge Richard Kyle said federal rules require a unanimous verdict but allow for a split verdict if both sides agree. Attorneys agreed to 8 of 10 jurors taking one side.

Israel´s Channel 10 has reported that dozens of Palestinians emerged from the devastated Gaza neighborhood of Shajaiya to protest against the war, and that Hamas rounded twenty of them up and shot them in the street. The report, delivered during a panel discussion, was based in turn on reports by Palestinian sources, translated by Channel 10´s analyst. The demonstrators reportedly blamed Hamas for the destruction of the neighborhood, and Hamas´s response was to kill them all immediately. Asked how the demonstration could have come about in the first place, the analyst speculated that there could be other pockets of resistance

You would think that a major U.S. Senate campaign caught referring to an ethnic group as financially "very tight" would thrill a media that loves nothing more than political scandal mixed with race. Well, not when it´s a Democrat campaign. When that´s the case, the media circle the wagons to pretend it didn´t happen, or in this case, reassure everyone there´s nothing to see here, because this is just how campaigns are run. Case in point, Chuck Todd and Mark Murray of NBC News. NBC News did cover the controversy created by National Review uncovering an internal strategy memo for

For half a millennium the Russian Tsars proudly proclaimed themselves to be guardians of Christian civilization against barbarian invasions from the Asian steppes and the Muslim Middle East. Although the Tsars generally excluded Catholics from their benevolent protection, their claim to protect European Christianity was not totally wrong. Just as the Pope of Rome traces his legitimacy to the Apostle Peter, so the Russian Orthodox Church, the established church of Tsarist Russia, traces its lineage to the Byzantine Empire, beginning three centuries after Jesus of Nazareth. For all its faults, Tsarist Russia buffered the West against worse threats. This history

A federal judge on Tuesday granted a 90-day stay in a ruling that upended the District’s ban on carrying handguns in public. The order issued by U.S. District Court Judge Frederick Scullin brings a temporary reprieve to D.C. officials, who were sent scurrying over the weekend to interpret the effects of the ruling that gutted the city’s restrictive gun laws. An order issued Saturday by the judge struck down the city’s ban on the carrying of guns in public as unconstitutional. While still struggling to comprehend the scope of the order, D.C. police ordered officers to stop arresting people for carrying legally

Increased investments in digital products and a decline in print advertising weighed on The New York Times Company’s second-quarter earnings, as profit slipped 21 percent. The company on Tuesday reported $55.7 million in adjusted operating profit for the quarter, which excludes some one-time costs.
