A Photo Op That's Worth 1,000 Words (All of 'Em Expletives)

Abbas Poses With Photo of Palestinian Terrorist Who Massacred 38 Israelis, Including 13 Kids

How, Um, "Inclusive"

Obama Does Dirt to Jewry One Last Time

Of all of Obama's abominable actions, this may well be the worst--rewarding the court Jew who helped smooth the way for that heinous deal with Iran's Grandiose Ayatollah (the guy who has vowed to wipe "Zionist entity" and its six million Jews off the map) with a place on--wait for it--the Holocaust Memorial Council.

Update: Obama is "a spite machine."

He's Ba-ack!

The Return of Bernard Lewis

Re Israel, Obama's OCD is Worse Than Ever

In his final interview as POTUS with "60 Minutes," Barack Obama, who is obsessed--yes, obsessed--with the Israel "problem," couldn't resist taking a parting shot at the stiff-necked Jewish state:
WASHINGTON — The increase of Israeli settlements has “gotten so substantial” that it is inhibiting the possibility for an “effective, contiguous Palestinian state,” President Barack Obama said Sunday, in his final interview as president.
Speaking to CBS’ “60 Minutes,” Obama dismissed the idea that there is a “major rupture” in the relationship between the United States and Israel after last month’s decision by the U.S. to abstain from a United Nations vote condemning Israeli settlements.
“Because of our investment in the region, and because we care so deeply about Israel, I think [the U.S.] has a legitimate interest in saying to a friend, ‘This is a problem,’ ” Obama said. “It would have long-term consequences for peace and security in the region, and the United States.”
Actually...no. It's Obama's "solution" that would have dire long-term consequences--for a viable Israel.

Groucho, Chico and Harpo Were More Famous, But Zeppo Was the Smartest Marx Brother

Who knew that Zeppo was "a prophet in the field of high-tech medicine"?

It's sort of like finding out that Shemp was a pioneer in the field of nanotechnology. (He wasn't, BTW.)


Quel Shockeroo (Not): Fort Lauderdale Airport Shooter Was a Muslim "Revert"

And guess what? He'd "reverted" to Islam before joining the army.
Robert Spencer asks the pertinent--and obviously politically incorrect question--"why was he able to join the army in the first place, since Santiago’s enlistment came after his Muslim alter ego, Aashiq Hammad, had downloaded jihad propaganda?"

Asked and answered:
The obvious answer is that to bar him from the army on those grounds would have been “Islamophobic.” Recall that the Fort Hood jihad mass murderer, army Major Nidal Malik Hasan, had been in repeated contact with jihad mastermind Anwar al-Awlaki. But when the FBI agent who was monitoring Hasan’s communications reported these contacts to his superiors, they told him again and again that they had no interest. After the agent persisted, he was told that the bureau “doesn’t go out and interview every Muslim guy who visits extremist websites.” 
Why not? 
Hasan, in any case, remained on active duty until, screaming “Allahu akbar,” he massacred 13 people at Fort Hood on November 5, 2009. 
Esteban Santiago was likewise not stopped. Nor was he by any means singular in this. After an Islamic jihadist set off bombs in New York City and New Jersey in September 2016, the New York Post reported: “It happened again: The FBI had the future Chelsea bomber on its radar — for a while, anyway — but let him slip through. Just as officials had done with men who became the perps in at least eight other terror attacks.”
Oddly enough, the ripped-from-the-headlines "lone wolf" phenomenon is not on the agenda at today's American Muslim-Jew schmooze-a-thon (timed for Martin Luther King Day so all attendees can feel super-duper virtuous about themselves).

Another non-shockeroo, no?

Update: Currently (9:30 am EST) watching the ADL's Jonathan Greenblatt address the schmooze-a-thon.

The phrase that leaps to mind is "useful idiot."

Update: Another phrase that leaps to mind--"court Jew."

Never. Getting. Laid.

NPR's Sweater Man, that's who.

Quote of the Day

It's in reference to Canada's willingness to sacrifice free speech (via a Parliamentary-decreed ban on all "Islamophobic" expression) in hopes of securing a seat on the UN's Security Council:
"Given the current Government's stated goal of obtaining a seat at the United Nations Security Council, pressures from within and outside the country from powerful Islamic lobby groups, and the Canadian Government's demonstrated proclivity to advance the "Islamophobia" initiative with undue haste and in the absence of evidence, there is a real risk that the fundamental right to free speech by all Canadians will be unnecessarily curtailed to accommodate the sensibilities of a special interest group."

Suppose They Gave a "Peace In Our Time" In Our Time Conference and Neither Of the Warring Sides Came?

No, really, supposing they did. Wouldn't that be the apex of insanity, the pinnacle of anti-Zionist skullduggery?

Why, yes; yes it would:
US Secretary of State John Kerry, who rebuked Israel recently over its settler activity on Palestinian territory, will join the talks on his farewell tour, along with delegates from the UN, EU and Arab League.
Talk about stacking the deck against the Jews! 



Update: The funniest (in a sick-making, mordant sort of way) thing I've read all day:
The U.S. State Department has said [Kerry] is attending to make sure that "whatever happens in this conference is constructive and balanced," the BBC reports.
I'll be about as "constructive and balanced" as Kerry's most recent anti-Israel peroration (which was as lengthy as it was demented).

Update: The UN powwow "detached from reality"? You betcha!

Barack Obama: Still the POTUS?

Oh, maybe not officially. And certainly not de facto or de jure. But definitely in his own mind and in the minds of his supporters.

Update: A song for the dear undeparted:
Happy trails to you!
We wish you'd go away.
Happy trails to you!
What more is there to say?
Pretending there's no Trump: Why, that's just crazy.
We think you'll stick around because you're lazy.
Happy trails to you.
It's a brand new day!
