And yet Obama fully supports the PA over our longtime ally, Israel.
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]
Alternate headline: Obama coronates himself Emperor of The United States.

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.

Wait, what are we worried about?
Which is probably the last thing anyone will be thinking about.

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.”
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.
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].”
Lat time I checked all Chihuahua Boy does is whine.
Via Daily Caller:
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.”
Now, if you’ll excuse PETA, they have a frozen chicken funeral to attend.
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 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.
