Israel: Politics
Mar 04 2015 - Investor's Business Daily
Urgent Call: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hit Congress like a hurricane, warning that America will be imperiled by the Iran deal President Obama seems ready to sign. No wonder Democrats were furious.
Russia news
Mar 04 2015 - Philadelphia Inquirer by TRUDY RUBIN
The assassination of Boris Nemtsov on Friday only steps from the Kremlin marks the final blow to the dream of a liberal democratic Russia, a dream that once flourished after the breakup of the Soviet Union.

Government Transparency
Mar 05 2015 - Front Page Magazine by Ben Shapiro
On Monday, The New York Times reported that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton never — not once — used her official State Department email address for her official communications. Instead, she utilized a private email account, effectively protecting her emails from public scrutiny. The Washington Post then broke the news that Hillary had registered her email address the same day her confirmation hearings for secretary of state began. In other words, Hillary knew she would be secretary of state conducting official business, and coincidentally opened a private email account at the same time to guard her from Freedom of Information Act requests.

President Obama
Mar 04 2015 - Human Events by David Limbaugh
The Obama White House is in full war mode against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, leader of our best ally in the Middle East, for accepting House Speaker John Boehner’s invitation to speak before Congress, while it mollycoddles that region’s most dangerous nation, Iran.
Mar 04 2015 - GOP The Daily Dose
American Thinker: The Associated Press took this astonishing photo as the African dignitaries joined Obama, who hosted the event, in a State Department auditorium for a group photograph. It was published in an article in Britain’s Daily Mail, and it was the only use ever of the photo.
Mar 04 2015 - Investor's Business Daily by Dennis Prager
There is no question about whether President Obama — along with Secretary of State John Kerry and the editorial pages of many newspapers — has a particular dislike of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Mar 04 2015 - Investor's Business Daily
Raw Power: The White House press secretary has acknowledged that President Obama is indeed interested in using executive orders to raise taxes. The long national nightmare that is the Obama presidency gets worse.

Republican Party
Mar 04 2015 - LA Times by DOYLE MCMANUS
The fervent Republicans who throng the Conservative Political Action Conference every year aren't representative of the American electorate. They aren't even representative of the GOP electorate. For four of the last five years, their straw poll for president has chosen Rand Paul or Ron Paul. These are not everyday Republicans.
Editor's Comments:
This was not a bad article except for the following: "What was missing from CPAC? Any sign of the intellectual ferment in conservative think tanks about how to address the stagnant incomes of the American middle class. Most speakers stuck to more traditional fare: smaller government, lower taxes, less regulation." Typical liberal. He gave the correct answer but didn't know he did. The answer to higher incomes and better economy is less government. bbm

European economics
Mar 04 2015 - Ludwig von Mises Institute by Frank Hollenbeck
The ECB decision to limit liquidity to Greek banks was another nail in the euro–coffin, and rumors of a “Grexit” caused bank withdrawals to accelerate. Over 25 billion euros have been withdrawn from Greek banks since the end of November 2014. But there’s a problem. Fractional–reserve Greek banks do not have the funds to cover all the withdrawals if trends continue. Current non–performing bank loans in Greece are close to 40 percent and banks hold large amounts of high risk Greek government debt.

Minimum wage realities
Mar 04 2015 - Everything Oregon by Paul Krugman
In February, Wal–Mart, America's largest employer, announced that it will raise wages for half a million workers. For many of those workers the gains will be small, but the announcement is nonetheless a very big deal, for two reasons. First, there will be spillovers: Wal–Mart is so big that its action will probably lead to raises for millions of workers employed by other companies. Second, and arguably far more important, is what Wal–Mart's move tells us – namely, that low wages are a political choice, and we can and should choose differently.

He does his best but of course, he is wrong. Interference in natural economics screws things up. The price of butter is directly related to the price of labor and it involves humans just as much as salary does. Stupid. bbm

What Are We Teaching Our Kids?
Mar 04 2015 - Town Hall by WALTER E. WILLIAMS
President Barack Obama wants Americans to dig deeper into our pockets to expand college education. Let's update college indoctrination done in the name of education.
Cornell University assistant professor Russell Rickford, in a lecture titled "Ferguson: The Next Steps," told a packed auditorium: "Let's be very clear about what's going on. It's one every 28 hours. Dead black bodies in the street is a sacrifice America makes to the gods of white supremacy." He added: "The propertied classes leverage state violence to discipline, repress and contain them. America fears and despises all poor people."

On Inauguration Day 2009, the White House website declared President Obama's administration would become "the most open and transparent in history." By the end of the next day, Obama had issued high–profile orders pledging "a new era" and "an unprecedented level of openness" across the massive federal bureaucracy.

Pipelines
Mar 05 2015 - American Enterprise Institute by John R. Bolton
Experienced vote counters do not believe that either the House or the Senate will muster the two–thirds majority necessary to override President Obama’s veto of the Keystone XL pipeline bill. If so, Mr. Obama’s years of delay and disingenuousness on this issue, culminating in his veto, will guarantee negative consequences for America long into the future.

The Global Warming Hoax?
Mar 04 2015 - Investor's Business Daily by KERRY JACKSON
The global warming debate often degenerates into one side — the alarmists — claiming the other side — skeptics — is anti–science. Believers wrap themselves in science as if it were an impenetrable and absolute defense.

Iran's nuclear programs
Mar 05 2015 - Front Page Magazine by Daniel Greenfield
In 1967, Benjamin Netanyahu skipped his high school graduation in Pennsylvania to head off to Israel to help in the Six Day War. That same year Obama moved with his mother to Indonesia.
Mar 05 2015 - Investor's Business Daily by VICTOR DAVIS HANSON
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke to Congress Tuesday to warn Americans of the anti–Western threats from theocratic — and likely soon to be nuclear — Iran.
Mar 05 2015 - Town Hall by Cliff May
Remember when President Obama’s spokesmen said that striking a bad deal with Iran would be worse than striking no deal at all, and that a good deal means Iran dismantles its nuclear weapons programs?
Mar 04 2015 - Investor's Business Daily by DAVID IGNATIUS
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lobbied powerfully against a nuclear agreement with Iran in a well–crafted speech to Congress Tuesday. The problem is that he has now created a zero–sum game with the Obama administration, in which either the president or the prime minister seems likely to come out a loser.
Mar 05 2015 - Investor's Business Daily by E.J. DIONNE JR.
It was disconcerting to watch Congress cheer wildly as a foreign leader, the prime minister of one of America's closest allies, trashed an American president's foreign policy.

Nancy Pelosi looked as if she might charge the well of the House and confront Benjamin Netanyahu personally.

Iran and the six major powers are closer than ever before to reaching an agreement to end the unnecessary crisis over Iran’s nuclear program. When the stakes are this high, sources and credibility matter.
Editor's Comments:
This is pure propaganda, straight from the Mullahs. Why would any paper publish such bias? bbm
Mar 05 2015 - St. Petersburg Times. by THOMAS FRIEDMAN
Now that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has made his case on Iran before Congress, with all the circus atmosphere it involved, let's get to the serious questions: What is America's interest in striking a deal with Iran? Because our interests and Israel's are not fully aligned. What is the minimum we need to satisfy our interests? And how should we balance the critiques of our policy from the serious Bibi versus the cynical Bibi?

Mar 05 2015 - Front Page Magazine by Bruce Thornton
Barack Obama’s foreign policy will go down in U.S. history as one of the most dangerously inept ever. Created by equal amounts of ignorance, arrogance, and partisan politics, the president’s policies have left behind a world in which rivals and enemies are on the march, while allies and friends are endangered and alienated. He deserves the opprobrium with which future history should load him.
