US-Backed Palestinian Authority Incited Violence Against Rabbis Week Before Jerusalem Synagogue Attack…

And yet Obama fully supports the PA over our longtime ally, Israel.

Via PMW:

A week before the brutal murders of four rabbis during prayer and a policeman in a Jerusalem synagogue, the official Palestinian Authority daily published an op-ed that demonized Israel and Jews. It specifically singled out “the rabbis of the secret societies” as the ones giving the instructions to Israel to “set the foundations for an eternal hegemony”:

“The danger posed by Israel remains the greatest and most significant of all, and the first [threat] we must come out against. For the Zionist settler ideology does not seek temporary influence or gains, and does not strive to exploit and exhaust resources, but rather sets the foundations for an eternal hegemony based on the instructions of the ‘rabbis’ of the secret societies. And all this is in order to take revenge on history and their minority and false persecution complex.” [Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Nov. 12, 2014]

Louisiana Senate Runoff Update: Cassidy 56%, Landrieu 41%…

Adios, Mary.

Via Rasmussen:

Rasmussen Reports’ first survey of the Louisiana Senate runoff shows Republican challenger Bill Cassidy comfortably on his way to joining the new GOP Senate majority.

Cassidy posts a 15-point lead – 56% to 41%- over incumbent Democratic Senator Mary Landrieu among Likely Louisiana Voters in our latest statewide telephone survey. Just three percent (3%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Landrieu edged Cassidy, a U.S. congressman, 42% to 41% on Election Day earlier this month, with eight candidates officially in the race. But under Louisiana’s so-called “jungle primary” rules, the contest will now be decided by a December 6 runoff because no candidate cleared the 50% mark.

Islamic State Spreads To Libya, ISIS Fighters Now In Complete Control Of Derna…

More good news.

(CNN) — The black flag of ISIS flies over government buildings. Police cars carry the group’s insignia. The local football stadium is used for public executions. A town in Syria or Iraq? No. A city on the coast of the Mediterranean, in Libya.

Fighters loyal to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria are now in complete control of the city of Derna, population of about 100,000, not far from the Egyptian border and just about 200 miles from the southern shores of the European Union.

The fighters are taking advantage of political chaos to rapidly expand their presence westwards along the coast, Libyan sources tell CNN.

The sources say the Derna branch of ISIS counts 800 fighters and operates half a dozen camps on the outskirts of the town, as well as larger facilities in the nearby Green Mountains, where fighters from across North Africa are being trained.

It has been bolstered by the return to Libya from Syria and Iraq of up to 300 Libyan jihadists who were part of ISIS’ al Battar Brigade — deployed at first in Deir Ezzor in Syria and then Mosul in Iraq. These fighters supported the Shura Council for the Youth of Islam in Derna, a pro-ISIS faction.

The council had been competing for superiority with another militant group, the Abu Salem Brigade, some of whose fighters’ loyalties lay with al Qaeda, according to Noman Benotman, a former Libyan jihadist now involved in counter-terrorism for the Quilliam Foundation.

Al Qaeda’s top envoy in Libya, Abdulbasit Azuz, left Derna after U.S. Special Forces captured Ahmed Abu Khatallah, an alleged ringleader of the Benghazi attacks in June. Azuz is now believed to be in Syria, Benotman told CNN.

MSNBC: Bill Nye “The Science Guy” Blames Buffalo Blizzard On Global Warming…

Naturally.

Via Daily Caller:

Who didn’t see this one coming? MSNBC’s “The Cycle” brought in scientist mechanical engineer Bill Nye to explain why the blizzard hitting the city of Buffalo was caused by global warming.

“Buffalo sees about 8 feet of snow a year, but they’ve already seen most of that and winter has not officially started yet,” said host Touré Neblett, “What’s the science behind all this?”

Nye was remarkably honest in initially admitting, “Well, you can’t tie, especially cold weather events are difficult to tie to climate change.”

…Before he tied it to climate change anyways. “But it’s very reasonable that it’s climate change. Everybody, when Lake Erie’s warmer, more water evaporates into the air and it snows more. I don’t make the rules, people.”

Finally, A Gift For That Hard To Shop For Liberal In Your Life . . . The Multicultural Christmas Sweater…

Goes great with a COEXIST bumpersticker.

Via Daily Mail:

Over the years, political correctness has slowly eroded the the outlandish displays of festive cheer that occur around Christmas time.

Numerous offices have banned decorations over concerns that it would make certain parts of the population feel left out and others have stopped Christmas booze raffles in case it offends people of religious faiths where alcohol and gambling are forbidden.

So, with the huge growth sales of festive sweaters over the last few years, it was only a matter of time before someone invented the ‘Multicultural Christmas Jumper.’

And the website Britishchristmasjumpers.com are the first past that particular politically correct finishing post.

Their multicoloured offering features several different signs of faith including; Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Sikh, a form of scientific atheism, Chinese philosophy and also the peace sign.

The woolly garment can be pre-ordered from the site for £40, with the company shipping the prodcuts from December 1 onwards.

White House: C’mon You Guys, Obama Isn’t “Tearing Up the Constitution” On Executive Amnesty…

U.S. President Obama speaks on the phone in the Oval Office during a conference call at the White House

Oh, really?

Via Townhall:

The Washington Post’s editorial board, not known for its staunch conservatism, has been warning the White House for months against implementing the executive amnesty President Obama is expected to announce tonight. In August, the Post published a stern house editorial that laid out the stakes and Constitutional context of the administration’s then-rumored action:

Congress is a mess. But that doesn’t grant the president license to tear up the Constitution. As Mr. Obama himself said last fall: “If, in fact, I could solve all these problems without passing laws in Congress, then I would do so. But we’re also a nation of laws.” To act on his own, the president said, would violate those laws. Mr. Obama now seems to be jettisoning that stance in the name of rallying his political base. He is considering extending temporary protection from deportation to millions of illegal immigrants, including the parents of U.S.-born children and others who have lived in the United States for years. Conceivably, this would give Democrats a political boost in 2016. Just as conceivably, it would trigger a constitutional showdown with congressional Republicans, who could make a cogent argument that Mr. Obama had overstepped his authority.

Illegals Flooding Attorney’s Offices With Calls To See If They Qualify For Obama’s Amnesty…

So it begins…

Via Yahoo:

SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — Immigrants in the country illegally already are flooding attorneys’ offices with calls to see if they can qualify under President Barack Obama’s yet-to-be-announced plan to shield as many as 5 million immigrants from deportation.

Obama said he’ll reveal the long-awaited order on Thursday. Alex Galvez, an immigration lawyer in Los Angeles, said he’s going to need to add phone lines to keep up with the demand. Orange County, California-based immigration lawyer Annaluisa Padilla said she’s getting twice as many calls as usual since buzz intensified over the plan, which would also grant the immigrants work permits.

“It’s like the golden ticket,” she said. “Everybody who is calling my office is asking how can I get a work permit under Obama’s program? I am like, there is no Obama program yet.”

Ed Schultz Says Obama Should “Back Off’ Immigration Executive Order And Pin It On Republicans…

Don’t think anyone would be opposed to this…

Via Washington Examiner:

There’s at least one Obama supporter in the media who doesn’t think the president should address immigration policy unilaterally: MSNBC host Ed Schultz.

Schultz said on Twitter Wednesday that Obama should instead work with congressional Republicans to get the job done, though not for the sake of bipartisanship.

“[President Obama] should back off on immigration reform, give the Republicans a deadline and use the [State of the Union address] to call ‘em out,” Schultz said. “[GOP] won’t deliver.”

UN Security Council’s Condemnation Of Terror Attack On Jerusalem Synagogue Fails To Mention The Terrorists Were Palestinians…

I’m sure it was just an accidental oversight.

Via UN website:

The following Security Council press statement was issued today by Council President Gary Quinlan (Australia):

The members of the Security Council condemned in the strongest terms the despicable terrorist attack in a synagogue in Jerusalem on 18 November, resulting in the murder of four innocent civilians worshipping at the synagogue and a police officer, as well as the injury of many more.  The members of the Security Council expressed their condolences to the families of all those who have died and sympathy to those injured and to the Israeli people.

The members of the Security Council strongly condemned all such acts of violence, expressed concern about increased tensions, which have affected both the Israeli and Palestinian people, and urged all sides to take immediate steps to restore calm.  The members of the Security Council emphasized the importance of all statements condemning this attack and condemning all acts of violence, and encouraged Israeli and Palestinian leaders and citizens to work together to lower tension, reject violence, avoid all provocations and seek a path toward peace.

The members of the Security Council reaffirmed that terrorism in all its forms and manifestations is criminal and unjustifiable, regardless of its motivation, wherever, whenever and by whomsoever committed, and should not be associated with any religion, nationality, civilization or ethnic group.  The members of the Security Council reminded States that they must ensure that measures taken to combat terrorism comply with all their obligations under international law.

Disturbing: Major Democratic Fundraiser Arrested On Charges Of Sex Abuse Of 15-Year-Old Boy…

Can we imagine the media coverage if this were a major Republican fundraiser?

Via Truth Revolt:

A national “power player” for the Democratic party and the gay rights movement was arrested Wednesday on charges of sex abuse of a minor.

Terry Bean, a Portland-based fundraiser for Democratic causes, is being charged with sex abuse and two counts of sodomy involving a 15-year-old boy. Bean’s attorney claims that his client is the victim of an “extortion ring” and expressed full confidence that his name would be cleared.

The Willamette Week reports that law enforcement sources say Bean, 66, will be charged with two counts of sodomy in the third degree (a felony) and sex abuse in the third degree (a misdemeanor). The arrest followed a six-month investigation concerning a concealed video camera over Bean’s bed that accuser Kiah Lawson says was used to illegally film him and at least half a dozen other men “in a state of nudity engaged in intimate acts with [Bean].”

Pentagon Got Punked: Made Ransom Payment For Bowe Bergdahl To A Con Man…

Reassuring.

Via Washington Times:

The Pentagon is under fire for making a ransom payment to an Afghan earlier this year as part of a failed bid to win the release of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, according to U.S. officials.

Sgt. Bergdahl was released in May after nearly five years in captivity as part of a controversial exchange for five terrorists held at the U.S. military detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

The ransom payment was first disclosed by Rep. Duncan Hunter in a Nov. 5 letter to Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel. Mr. Hunter stated in the letter that Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) made the payment covertly as part of a release deal. But the money was stolen by the Afghan intermediary claiming to represent the Haqqani terrorist network.

Dem Rep. Luis Gutierrez: Republicans Have To “Stop Whining” About Obama’s Executive Amnesty…

Appearing on “Andrea Mitchell Reporting,” Democratic Illinois Congressman Luis Gutiérrez said that incoming Republican Senate Majority Leader-elect Mitch McConnell should “stop whining” about President Barack Obama’s planned executive amnesty. [...]

The bipartisan vibe ended shorty thereafter. “Mitch McConnell, they should stop whining and they should start legislating and start saying what they will do. They have an incredible victory in the Senate, an incredible new majority in the House of Representatives. Use it to do something constructive.”

PETA Compares Fight Against Presidential Turkey Pardon To Civil Rights Struggle…

Via The Hill:

The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is calling on President Obama’s daughters to go vegan for Thanksgiving and urge their father to end the “offensive turkey pardon” ceremony.

In a letter Thursday to the president’s daughters, Sasha and Malia Obama, PETA suggested the family follow its “values” during the holidays, citing the struggle for civil rights.

“You come from a family whose members don’t hesitate to fight for those who have been oppressed by standing up for civil rights, women’s rights, and LGBT rights,” Rachelle Owen, a senior manager in the group’s youth division, wrote to the Obama daughters.

“Obviously, you’re familiar with the horrible ways that people often treat others who are viewed as ‘different’ simply because of superficial physical differences or cruel traditions. This year, we would like to ask you to lend your powerful and influential voices to another group whose voices often go unheard: animals.”

Obama: I’m Not Acting Like An Emperor – WaPo Fact Checker: Yes, You Are…

Obama last seen jotting down the Washington Post on his list of enemies.

Via Washington Post:

Question: Your administration has deported a record high number, 1.5 million, of undocumented immigrants, more than your predecessor. And I know your administration took some steps last year to protect unintended undocumented immigrants from being deported. However many people say those efforts were not enough. What I’d like to know is what you’re going to do now, and until the time that immigration reform is passed, to insure that more people aren’t being deported and families are not being broken apart.

Obama: Well, look Jackie, this is something I’ve struggled with throughout my presidency. The problem is that you know I’m the president of the United States. I’m not the emperor of the United States. My job is to execute laws that are passed, and Congress right now has not changed what I consider to be a broken immigration system. [...]

The Pinocchio Test

The president has certainly been consistent on this issue—until he saw that the path through Congress was blocked. It’s clear from the interviews that the president was not being asked about executive orders that would have provided comprehensive immigration reform, but about specific actions that ended deportations of a subset of illegal immigrants—precisely the type of action he will shortly unveil.

Previously he said that was not possible, using evocative language that he is not a “king” or “the emperor.” Apparently he’s changed his mind. The president earns an upside-down Pinocchio for his flip-flop.
