How Kristol purged the Arabists by Pat Buchanan

And not only had “Arabists” like President Bush been shoved aside by neocons, the “Pat Buchanan/Ron Paul type” of Republican has been purged, said Kristol.

After taping John Stossel’s show on March 16 in New York, the Mrs. and I took the Acela back to Washington. Once we had boarded the train, who should come waddling up the aisle but Bill Kristol.

The Weekly Standard editor seemed cheerful, and we chatted about the surge in Mitt Romney’s popularity and prospects.

I did not ask what he had been doing in New York, but thanks to the website Mondoweiss, I found out. Kristol was there for a March 16 “debate” with Jeremy Ben-Ami of J Street, the pro-Israel organization, at B’nai Jeshurun synagogue.

After listening to Kristol, writes Phil Weiss, “I am still reeling. … Kristol was treated like royalty and came off as … a Republican Party warlord,” bragging “about how all the hostile elements to Israel inside the Republican Party were purged over the last 30 years.”

The big story in the Republican Party, said Kristol, is the “eclipsing” of the George H.W. Bush-James Baker-Brent Scowcroft realists, “an Arabist old-fashioned Republican Party … very concerned about relations with Arab states that were not friendly with Israel.”

Canadian police say porn star Luka Rocco Magnotta is severed foot suspect

Severed human foot mailed to Canada’s Conservative Party office. “Some police officers have never witnessed a crime such as this,” Montreal Police Cmdr. Ian Lafreniere said.


This undated photo provided by City of Montreal Police Service media relations shows Luka Rocco Magnotta, 29, who is wanted for homicide.

A porn actor is wanted in a gruesome case of dismembered body parts that were mailed to different places including the headquarters of the Conservative Party of Canada, police said Wednesday.

Luka Rocco Magnotta, 29, is wanted for homicide, Montreal police said at a news conference.

According to an official close to the investigation Magnotta worked as a porn actor and there is video of the crime. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk publicly about those details. The Globe and Mail in Toronto describes him as a “male model and adult-film performer…Mr. Magnotta has a long electronic trail on the Internet, including modeling pictures and allegations he suffocated kittens.”

Magnotta, believed to originally be from Toronto, was renting an apartment in a working-class Montreal neighborhood. It was behind that building that police found a man’s torso in a suitcase in a heap of garbage Tuesday, police said. That same day, a foot was found in a package mailed to the Conservative party headquarters in Ottawa, and a hand found at postal warehouse in the Canadian capital. The package with the hand was addressed to the Liberal party of Canada. Early testing shows the three body parts come from the same man, police said.

‘Fox And Friends’ Anti-Obama Video Could Double As GOP Ad (VIDEO)

In the video —which is labeled as a “Fox and Friends Presents” production — viewers see images of Obama talking about jobs contrasted with footage of homeless people. There is dark, foreboding music, and statistics about the unemployment rate, the rise in the number of food stamps, and the national debt, among other things.

“Fox and Friends” aired a remarkable four-minute video on its Wednesday show.

The video, which the hosts of the show advertised as taking a “look back” at President Obama’s four years in office, could easily be mistaken for a Republican attack ad. It was aired multiple times throughout the show. (UPDATE: Fox News later issued a statement disavowing the ad and attributing it to an associate producer.)

“We decided to take a look back at the president’s first term to see if it lived up to hope and change,” host Gretchen Carlson asked at one point, introducing the video.

The hosts heaped lavish praise on the producer of the video saying that it had taken a “tremendous amount of research” to put together.

Obama awards Medal of Freedom to honorary chair of socialist organization

The Heritage Foundation notes that Dolores Huerta, 82, has in the past said that “Republicans hate Latinos” and praised Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez.


Dolores Huerta stands behind President Barack Obama as he winks during Tuesday’s Presidential Medal of Freedom ceremony.

President Barack Obama on Tuesday awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to an honorary chair of the Democratic Socialists of America, Dolores Huerta.

The Heritage Foundation notes that Huerta, 82, has in the past said that “Republicans hate Latinos” and praised Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez.

She was one of 14 people to receive the nation’s highest civilian honor Tuesday.

In announcing the award, Obama said he read about Huerta “when I was starting off as an organizer.”

Huerta is a co-founder of the United Farm Workers of America union. DSA describes itself as the “largest socialist organization in the United States.”

Where’s the lawman to run Obama out of town?

Monckton told Ballantyne he even went so far as to have an expert forge a phony “Christopher W. Monckton” Hawaiian birth certificate to match the “Barack Obama” document the White House released on April 27 last year – just to see that it could be done.


Lord Christopher Monckton at Tombstone’s ‘Wyatt Earp Days’

On the dusty streets of Tombstone, Ariz., on a weekend the city devotes to legendary western lawman Wyatt Earp, a former policy adviser to Margaret Thatcher told Americans it’s time to put their faith in another man who wears the star, Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

The U.K.’s Lord Christopher Monckton, known internationally for his climate-change skepticism, is calling on those still skeptical about Barack Obama’s eligibility to be president to put their money where their mouth is and back Arpaio’s ongoing Cold Case Posse investigation into the current occupant of the Oval Office.

“My particular purpose in coming to Tombstone today is to ask you … to contribute as generously as you can to the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office Cold Case Posse,” Monckton told Tom Ballantyne, author of “Oh Really, O’Reilly!” and cameraman Gabe Zolna. “They need help to pay for further investigations. They don’t want to charge this one to taxpayers. The Cold Case Posse is funded entirely by people like you who would like to reach the truth on this question and are willing to help the sheriff.”

Only three months ago, Lord Monckton had never really looked into the issue of Obama’s eligibility and had never even heard of Arizona’s Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Escape From New York? High-Taxing Empire State Loses 3.4 Million Residents in 10 Years

California is also known for more onerous taxes and regulations, and the foundation shows similar trends of migration from there to other states like Texas and Arizona.

New York State accounted for the biggest migration exodus of any state in the nation between 2000 and 2010, with 3.4 million residents leaving over that period, according to the Tax Foundation.

Over that decade the state gained 2.1 million, so net migration amounted to 1.3 million, representing a loss of $45.6 billion in income.

Where are they escaping to? The Tax Foundation found that more than 600,000 New York residents moved to Florida over the decade – opting perhaps for the Sunshine State’s more lenient tax system – taking nearly $20 billion in adjusted growth income with them.

Over that same time period, 208,794 Pennsylvanians moved to Florida, taking $8 billion in income.

“Many of these New York and Pennsylvania residents no doubt moved to Florida for the warm weather,” says the foundation, a nonpartisan research group. “[B]ut many more may have moved there because the state does not have an individual income tax, an estate tax, nor an inheritance tax.”

Warren, Obama, and Harvard’s Culture of Corruption

“On balance, it is well worth it, for on the one side lies fame and fortune, and on the other lies only a slap on the wrist. And, especially if I can hide my misdeeds for years (as seems usually to occur), and in the meanwhile have become a big deal, I am virtually assured of suffering nothing other than a minor slap on the wrist if and when I am finally caught.”


Elizabeth Warren

As Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren and her Harvard partners in crime are learning, academic fraud is not as easy to get away with as it used to be in the good old days before the emergence of a vigilant alternative media.

Writing for Breitbart, Michael Patrick Leahy revealed on Friday a spring 1993 article that listed Warren as one of approximately 250 “women of color” in legal academia. The article was published in what was then called the Harvard Women’s Law Journal and would have been released roughly when Warren was being considered for tenure.

At the time, Harvard Law was desperately seeking just such women. Just three years earlier, the Law School found itself embroiled in a nasty racial brouhaha. Black firebrand law professor Derrick Bell was demanding that Harvard appoint a woman of color to the law faculty. This protest would culminate in vigils and protests by the racially sensitive student body, in the course of which Bell supporter Barack Obama would compare the increasingly absurd Bell to Rosa Parks.

Feeling the pressure, Harvard Law Review editors wanted to elect their first African-American president. “Obama cast himself as an eager listener,” the New York Times reported in the article that would catch the eye of literary agent Jane Dystel, “sometimes giving warring classmates the impression that he agreed with all of them at once.”

In effect, the pressure Bell had brought to bear launched Obama’s political career, and it may have given Warren the idea to reinvent herself as Pocahontas. One could almost forgive Warren for cheating a little. At the time, the Law School faculty was flush with cheats, including Obama’s two most prominent mentors.

Stalingrad movie – Storming the Factory

“The magic is as wide as a smile and as narrow as a wink, loud as laughter and quiet as a tear, tall as a tale and deep as emotion. So strong, it can lift the spirit. So gentle, it can touch the heart. It is the magic that begins the happily ever after.” – Unknown

‘Kill the Gay’: Lesbian Couple Charged After Allegedly Faking Hate Crime (Video)

Perhaps the women didn’t anticipate how seriously the issue would be treated, because nearly eight months later, with the full force of the FBI involved, authorities are saying the women themselves may have been responsible for the acts. They have been charged with both criminal mischief and false reporting, and one of the women, Aimee Whitchurch, faces an additional charge of forgery.

Back in October, a lesbian couple in Colorado called the police after they allegedly found the words “Kill the Gay” scrawled in red across their garage, and a noose hanging from their front door.

When asked, the couple told officers they believed that the hateful acts were retaliation from their neighbors and the homeowner’s association, who were allegedly upset that the couple did not pick up after their dogs.

However, they refused to “submit to hate” and posted these signs on their garage in defiance:

Fox 31 reported on the matter, saying the couple declined to take a lie detector test, but maintain their innocence.
