If the IRS had not campaigned for Mr Obama in 2012, we might have had the house cleaning two years ago so Mr O's legacy will forever be first black president * (*first IRS president) I don't believe we have ever gotten an apology and prosecution and 'reform' at IRS over this real voter fraud, theft of 2012 elections maybe better for Dems had they lost 2012, certainly better for the rest of us
What is Qatar, newsworthy for bankrolling Muslim psychopaths for god Qatar is a little stub or peninsula on the north east of Saudi Arabia, and probably taps into the same deep oil lake underneath WHY is Qatar? , some ancient debt from colonial days? Maybe Qatar is a Saudi deniable front, to fund indirectly what it cannot fund directly Regarding Gaza/ Hamas militarizing protected areas this is not 'wrong' - these are war crimes,and should be called as such regarding a Pal State, remind your readers and yourself that Pals were offered a State in 1947, per UN, and threw it away, preferring war instead they then lost their several wars, '1967' borders are 1949 cease fire lines, nothing intrinsic and had 'occupation' by Jordan and Egypt and could have had a State from other Arabs, and did not, why not and, from 1949 - 1967 there was no occupation, no settlements and there was war so don't take them seriously Israel as a modern State exists, derivatively from the British victory over the Turks. Ottomans, 1917, 100 years ago ISIS is busy rewriting / undoing Versailles settlements, one hundred years ago one hundred years is an eye blink in Islam history, they remember expelling the crusader, 80 years of occupation (too bad, Saladin was a Kurd, not Islam's fave folks these days) BUT Jews look back to 2000 years of aspiration and exile, and 1300 years of State before that we should understand the long view, the locals do

"hutzpah (bordering on desperation)" Ms Malkin, Judge Leon it is chutzpah (hard kh sound) not huzpah oy gevalt http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chutzpah In Hebrew, chutzpah is used indignantly, to describe someone who has overstepped the boundaries of accepted behaviour. In traditional usage, the word expresses a strong sense of disapproval, condemnation and outrage. Leo Rosten in The Joys of Yiddish defines chutzpah as "gall, brazen nerve, effrontery, incredible 'guts', presumption plus arrogance such as no other word and no other language can do justice to". In this sense, chutzpah expresses both strong disapproval and condemnation. In the same work, Rosten also defined the term as "that quality enshrined in a man who, having killed his mother and father, throws himself on the mercy of the court because he is an orphan". Chutzpah amounts to a total denial of personal responsibility, that renders others speechless and incredulous ... one cannot quite believe that another person totally lacks common human traits like remorse, regret, guilt, sympathy and insight. The implication is at least some degree of psychopathy in the subject, as well as the awestruck amazement of the observer at the display. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chutzpah Contemporary usage Judge Alex Kozinski and Eugene Volokh in an article entitled Lawsuit Shmawsuit, note the rise in use of Yiddish words in legal opinion. They note that chutzpah has been used 231 times in American legal opinions, 220 of those after 1980.[4] I recall a judge Leon during Florida 2000, same guy?

KEEP THIS STORY ALIVE Plan B is the cops call into the house, announce their presence and intentions and ask the residents to cooperate \this is not the first such attack, others include deaf persons who do not hear the orders to come out, and who die when the building is stormed the militarization of the police forces is preface to future militarization of public life and encourages gun ownership and shootouts the police procedure should require telephoning first once the building is surrounded there are too many of these stories, trigger happy cops AS POLICY - we do not ask these people to take a bullet, we ask only some greater due diligence against 'friendly fire' a flash0bang before notice does not sound like prudent policy flash bang is used, from the public record, when storming a building in hostage rescue, which was not the case here
