As Caroline Glick--Israeli journalist and Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center--notes, the far-left Israeli news outlet "for whatever reason… chose not to translate this article in its English edition." Fortunately, Independent Media Review and Analysis did: Foreign Funding Bankrolls Anti-Netanyahu Campaign – Flies in 5-Man Obama Team Dr. Aaron Lerner Date: 26 January 2015 Haaretz reporter Roi Arad revealed in an article in the Hebrew edition today that the foreign funded organization, "One Voice”, is bankrolling the V-2015 campaign to defeat Binyamin Netanyahu’s national camp in the March 2015 Knesset Elections. One indication of the generous financing is that it has now flown in a team of five American campaign experts (including Jeremy Bird, the Obama campaign's national field director) who will run the campaign out of offices taking up the ground floor of a Tel Aviv office building. V-2015 is careful not to support a specific party - rather “just not Bibi”. As such, the foreign funds pouring into the campaign are not subject to Israel’s campaign finance laws. The revelation, PJMedia observes, stands in direct contrast with President Obama's declaration in his State of the Union that he has no more campaigns to run:
Read yesterday that Israel had concrete plans to attack the Iranian nuclear facilities... word was passed to John Kerry, then to Obama. Obama threatened to shoot Israeli jets out of the air, if they they crossed Iraqi airspace. If this is, indeed, true, then there is ample reason for Natanyahu to mistrust this Administration, and accept the invitation to make his case before Congress, without Obama's permission. Were I the Israeli Prime Minister, I'd not trust this openly hostile President to guarantee my security. It is an outrage! Obama treats the dictator in Cuba and the Mullahs in Tehran far better than our traditional allies.
We've been "Grubered" again. Tell the "stupid" public blithering happy talk, lie, seize and destroy. Goes back to the auto industry bailout....closing of private dealerships, "special" bankruptcy provisions, and hanging taxpayers with the bill... cash for clunkers. Summary take over of student loan business, resulting in a trillion dollar debt bubble. Dodd-Frank crushing small banks, insuring too-big-to-fail status on large ones, and richly benefiting Wall Street. Of course, there's the ACA, which defined the verb "Gruber". There is the immigration Order, creating chaos, and promising SS cards, access to benefits, and eligibility for "earned income tax credits" to illegals to the tune of $35,000 immediately. Now seizing control of the internet. They couldn't get the "fairness doctrine" or how to levy more taxes, licences, fees, on the Internet, so the FCC simply seized it. Look, if this doesn't amount to a coup, what the heck is it?

Amen. Seems liberals delight in dividing Americans into tidy groups based on race, ethnicity, religion, sex, sexual orientation, income, etc. It's all political. History will never be completely objective, but that SHOULD be the goal. It should weave in significant achievements, and events.... in context. Dividing course study and emphasis into categories, it invites error and misunderstanding. Objectivity does not serve political agenda's well. Spinning history is as old as time. It is up to us to demand objectivity in our schools, and actually READ and learn it ourselves.. sift through it, and not be manipulated by the hustlers of any stripe.
Of course, Net Neutrality is a boondoggle, and enormous power grab. Not only does it set the stage for another behemoth bureaucracy, with the power to control content, limit choices, favor cronys and contributors, and most delicious of all for the government, the power to implement higher fees, licenses, and levy taxes. Washington has been drooling over the prospect of tapping into the Internet market, beyond the measley income taxes, net based entrepreneurs have been paying. The camel is halfway into the tent. Those who think the government has our best interests at heart, with this seizure and regulation, best get ready. This is only the start. Remember the "Affordable" care act? We'll be paying more for less. It's the government way.
Still it is not the candidate's job to explain what Obama believes, or conjecture in that regard. Reporters love it when they can steer Republicans/Conservatives off into personal commentary about anyone's theology or psychology. The opinion doesn't matter, and diverts the conversation from pressing issues like terrorism, immigration, energy policy, unemployment, economy, fiscal responsibility and oversight, etc. Let's just agree that Obama believes something, and move on.

Sadly, correct. There seemed to be support growing for a convention of states, but long ago our local and state governments were more than happy to cede power to the next layer of government, in exchange for subsidies, and freebies. Alas, NOTHING is "free".
remember Colleen Hufford, 54, in Moore, Oklahoma, beheaded in her work by a Muslim convert. The horror is here, though largely ignored by the press.
Oh, really? What about Soros, Hollywood, Public Sector Unions, to-big-to-fail banks, and government financed "Green" scams? Was a study in "justice" and representative democracy when the Democrats controlled all three branches. There is a looming 1.5 TRILLION dollar student loan bubble looming. Obamacare is going down in flames, immigration is a hot mess, and your brilliant Democrats are offering up a jobs program for terrorists, and Kerry even opined that ISIS didn't offer healthcare. Republicans are imperfect, but most certainly the lesser of two evils.

That's simply nitwittery! I pay attention, vote in every local election and primary. I try to find candidates whose political philosophy most closely aligns with my own. It's NEVER perfect. Candidates are ALL flawed. Some do their best, and some sell out, BUT since I'm no willing to step up, abandon my life, privacy, and work, to run for elected office, I'm using the only power I have to fight back or have my voice heard. I'm not loving my Republicans in Congress, right now, but for Pete's sake, they've not been in office 3 months, yet. I'm not on board with breaking out the tar and feathers, yet, and not about to shut down, give up, and go quietly into the night. I will have ample reason to vote in every election until the day I die..... D E M O C R A T S.
