Nikki Haley Walks Out of UN As
Palestinian Envoy Starts Speaking
Townhall, by Cortney O´Brien    Original Article

U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley made quite the statement on the Middle East at Tuesday´s Security Council meeting - and it had nothing to do with her speech. After the ambassador had finished condemning Hamas for the violence on the Gaza-Israel border this week and Palestinian Ambassador Riyad H. Mansour instead began condemning Israeli forces, she got up and left. @ianbremmer Nikki Haley walking out as Palestine´s envoy to the UN begins to speak pretty much summarizes the US stance towards the Palestinians. 1:51 PM - May 15, 2018 Half of Twitter loved her symbolic exit. The other half decried it

Why Does Planned Parenthood Hate Adoption?
Weekly Standard, by Jeryl Bier    Original Article

Planned Parenthood has long insisted that its mission is to "educate and empower communities, provide quality health care, [and] lead the reproductive rights movement," decrying its reputation decrying its reputation as first and foremost the largest abortion provider in the country. The organization even professes disinterest in clients´ ultimate choices regarding pregnancy (parenting, abortion, or adoption, presented in that order) saying rather that it simply provides education and information on the various options. Planned Parenthood´s own numbers, however, show that it performs more than 82 abortions for every

The Times of Israel reports: A Hamas official on Wednesday acknowledged that 50 of the 62 Palestinians reported killed during Gaza border riots on Monday and Tuesday were members of the Islamist terrorist group, bringing the total number of known members of terror groups among the fatalities up to 53. “In the last rounds of confrontations, if 62 people were martyred, 50 of them were Hamas,” said Hamas official Salah Bardawil in an interview with the Palestinian Baladna news outlet.

How California’s primary could stop
Democrats from retaking the U.S. House
Los Angeles Times, by Priya Krishnakumar, Swetha Kannan    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 5/17/2018 4:58:32 AM     Post Reply
California’s primary system could thwart Democrats and Republicans alike on June 5, shutting either party out of key races in the fall. Under the state’s top-two primary, the two candidates receiving the highest number of votes advance to the general election in November, regardless of party. Democrats fear that the high numbers of hopefuls on the primary ballot could split the vote and leave the party without candidates in high-stakes congressional races in November. Meanwhile, Republicans are worried they could be left off the ballot in the governor’s race and other statewide contests in November,

Making Up International Law For Fun and Sport

Media coverage of Hamas´s attacks on the Israeli border have been, as usual, a dumpster fire of idiocy and ignorance. Hamas itself now admits that "50 of the 62 martyrs" were card-carrying terrorists. One of the heads of Hamas just boasted to an interviewer: "This is not peaceful resistance." No facts or admissions will intrude on the media narrative, which is that Israel is diabolically slaughtering civilians because Israelis enjoy killing people. One of the tropes that is being repeated everywhere is this one, promoted here with complete credulity by the New York Times: International law allowed for the use of lethal

A study says a Chinese-backed plan for Cambodia to build the Mekong River´s biggest dam would destroy fisheries that feed millions and worsen tensions with Vietnam, the downstream country with most to lose from dams on the waterway. The three-year study, posted on the website of the U.S.-based organization that Cambodia´s government commissioned it from, says the Sambor dam will "generate large power benefits to Cambodia, but at the probable cost of the destruction of the Mekong fishery, and the certain enmity of Vietnam." It says the dam designed by China Southern Power Grid Co. with a 620-square-kilometer

The Sea Is Rising, but Not
Because of Climate Change
Wall Street Journal, by Fred Singer    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 5/17/2018 4:44:13 AM     Post Reply
Of all known and imagined consequences of climate change, many people fear sea-level rise most. But efforts to determine what causes seas to rise are marred by poor data and disagreements about methodology. The noted oceanographer Walter Munk referred to sea-level rise as an “enigma”; it has also been called a riddle and a puzzle. It is generally thought that sea-level rise accelerates mainly by thermal expansion of sea water, the so-called steric component. But by studying a very short time interval, it is possible to sidestep most of the complications, like “isostatic adjustment” of the shoreline (as continents rise after

Iranian state TV is reporting that Tehran has signed an agreement with a British consortium to develop an oil field in the country´s south. The agreement is the first between Iran and a key Western ally of the United States since Washington last week announced it will pull out of the landmark 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and Western powers. Managing Director of Pergas International Consortium Colin Rowley, and Bijan Alipour, managing director of National Iranian South Oil Co., signed a preliminary deed on the partnership in the presence of British Ambassador Rob Macaire in Tehran on Wednesday night.

Before you get mad, remember that she has a good side too. For instance, she utterly destroyed the DNC’s credibility among her party’s base while chairman. How many of us can say we’ve done something as virtuous as that for America? It’s fun to compare this rhetoric to Democratic rhetoric about groups that actually are terrorist organizations: “The NRA is kind of just shy of a terrorist organization,” Schultz told HuffPost. “They have done everything they can to perpetuate the culture of violence that we have in our country with the spread of assault weapons across the nation.”…

For Gaza’s suffering, blame Hamas
New York Post, by Jonathan Schanzer    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 5/17/2018 4:24:10 AM     Post Reply
Predictably, the recent unrest on the border separating Israel and the Gaza Strip has given way to a banal debate over the “desperation” of the people of Gaza. There can be no doubt that the people of Gaza are miserable. They have been living under Hamas rule since 2007. Israel has no choice but to treat the territory as hostile, given that Hamas has stated repeatedly and unequivocally that it seeks nothing less than the destruction of the state of Israel. And it has backed up its words with deeds, launching multiple rocket wars against the Jewish state, accentuated by attempted

Want to understand why Trump keeps

If you want to understand why Donald Trump is president today (and why he could very well win a second term), look to the Democrats´ hysterical response to two of Trump´s major foreign policy achievements over the past week. Last Thursday, the president traveled to Joint Base Andrews to greet three American hostages whose release he had secured from North Korea. Unlike his predecessor, Trump did it without sending the offending regime an unmarked plane loaded with hundreds of millions in hard currency. The return of these American captives should have been a moment of celebration and bipartisan unity. So

As Obamacare Premiums Soar, Dems Lie
Real Clear Politics, by Betsy McCaughey    Original Article
Posted By: ketchuplover- 5/17/2018 2:32:20 AM     Post Reply
America has a health insurance problem because politicians would rather lie about it than solve it. Obamacare regulations caused premiums for people buying their own insurance to more than double between 2013 and 2017, and then soar even higher in 2018. With huge hikes predicted again in 2019, the Affordable Care Act will have caused premiums to triple in six years. Ouch. But instead of telling the truth about why this is happening, politicians are dishing out lies. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is already announcing what he´s going to do about the rate hikes. "We Democrats are going to be relentless in making sure the

NBC Chief Foreign Correspondent Andrea Mitchell led the pack Wednesday afternoon in lying about President Donald Trump calling immigrants ‘animals’ when he was speaking about MS-13 gang members at a round table discussion on California’s sanctuary policies for illegal aliens. Much of the media and many Democrats joined Mitchell in lying about Trump’s comments. “A tough take down by the California governor after @realDonaldTrump calls people trying to get into the country “animals” not people.” (Tweet) A fed up Donald Trump, Jr. called out Mitchell on Twitter,

Two months before the 2016 presidential election, the Claremont Review of Books published (in its digital pages) an essay that began: “2016 is the Flight 93 election: charge the cockpit or you die.” The author, Publius Decius Mus, a pseudonym for Michael Anton, who recently served as director of communications for the National Security Council, noted that “you may die anyway” because there were no guarantees except one: “if you don’t try, death is certain.” He allowed that his metaphor might strike many readers as “histrionic.” It did; but it struck many more as galvanizing, especially when Rush Limbaugh devoted

Last week, several news outlets obtained financial records showing that Michael Cohen, President Trump’s personal attorney, had used a shell company to receive payments from various firms with business before the Trump Administration. In the days since, there has been much speculation about who leaked the confidential documents, and the Treasury Department’s inspector general has launched a probe to find the source. That source, a law-enforcement official, is speaking publicly for the first time, to The New Yorker, to explain the motivation: the official had grown alarmed after being unable to find two important reports on Cohen’s financial activity in

Democrats in Iowa, like Democrats everywhere, have gone around the bend. Last Thursday, Tom Steyer, a leftist hypocrite of epic proportions, headlined a town hall in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. A woman in the audience said that she couldn’t see any difference between President Trump and Adolf Hitler. Steyer suggested that a fine distinction might be drawn, but added that the urgency to impeach Trump–a nationwide campaign that Steyer is spearheading–derives from the risk that if permitted to remain in office, Trump may murder millions: [Video] These people are crazy, obviously.

As thousands flee Hawaii´s Big Island ahead of the imminent ´explosive´ eruption of the Kilauea volcano, some have been seen taking a less dramatic approach. A logic-defying photograph taken on Tuesday shows a group of golfers more concerned with finishing their round than the mountain spewing ash and sulphur dioxide 12,000 feet into the air behind them. The US Geographical Survey (USGS) says Kilauea has 20 open fissures now, with some of them continuously erupting and that lava bombs the size of microwaves were found a few hundred yards from the Halemaumau crater on Wednesday morning. ´This morning dense ballistic

Multiple subjects of a report on the Justice Department’s handling of a 2016 investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email use have been notified that they can privately review the report by week’s end, signaling t he long-awaited document is nearing release. The report is likely to reignite the volatile debate over the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s handling of the Clinton probe, and it will put Michael Horowitz, the Justice Department’s inspector general, in a familiar place—taking aim at members of the law enforcement community. Those invited to review the report were told they would have to sign nondisclosure agreements in

The leader of the opposition research firm behind the infamous anti-Trump ´dirty dossier´ told Congress last year that the FBI collected intelligence from inside the president´s campaign before the 2016 election. The agency was at the time run by James Comey, the now decidedly anti-Trump former official who has unleashed scathing criticism of Trump in his memoir. Glenn Simpson´s testimony is among the disclosures in Wednesday´s Senate Judiciary Committee release of transcripts from its investigation into the unverified collection of dirt funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee. In August 2017 Simpson told committee members and

  



Giuliani: Mueller´s team told Trump’s

Special counsel Robert Mueller´s team has informed President Donald Trump´s attorneys that they have concluded that they cannot indict a sitting president, according to the President´s lawyer. "All they get to do is write a report," Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani told CNN. "They can´t indict. At least they acknowledged that to us after some battling, they acknowledged that to us." That conclusion is likely based on longstanding Justice Department guidelines. It is not about any assessment of the evidence Mueller´s team has compiled. A lack of an indictment would not necessarily mean the President is in the clear. Mueller could issue a report

Need more evidence that there are two Americas? Here: Left-wing hatred of Melania Trump is inversely proportional to flyover admiration for the first lady. In just the last month, late-night clown Jimmy Kimmel mocked Trump’s Slovenian accent, CNN contributor April Ryan attacked her as “not culturally American,” former Hillary Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines derided her genteel presence at former [first lady Barbara Bush’s] funeral, and horror writer Stephen King snickered at her hospitalization this week for kidney surgery. Yet, while partisans in the political press and entertainment media work hard to stoke division against and resentment of the Trump administration,
