Can Donald Win The Nomination? More Importantly, Can Any Republican Win The White House?

After just landing from a grueling four days on the left coast, I think the answers are don’t know and absolutely not.

Let me deal with question 2 first: Can any Republican win the White House? While on the left coast, I was regaled with opinions about how the VA does a poor job because they are underfunded, how protected classes need more protection, (LBGT communities and mental illness communities and women – there are jokes to be had there, BTL, have at it), how we absolutely must pay more in taxes, how changing the language from multiculturalism to something else will help conservatives understand how wrong they are, etc. And most of these conversations were forcibly overheard while waiting in group 3 to board United. My contacts were possibly crazier. Now, you may say, “Aggie, the left coast is nutty, everyone knows that.” OK, but how much of the population do they represent? Is it any different on the right coast? And given the breakdown of our legal system, how close to actual victory must they come in order to “win”?

So I am undermining the importance of this:

In ways large and small, with policy and with personality, billionaire Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is forcing his party’s establishment to confront the vast divide between party leaders and the voters who, according to nearly every poll for months, have wanted him to carry their torch to the White House.

A prevailing narrative is that Trump is leading in the polls by appealing to the far right. That’s an oversimplification. Trump is offering Republicans something no other candidate can: An insider’s knowledge of the elite combined with a mischievous determination to upend it and an unorthodox set of policy prescriptions—running the gamut from immigration to campaign finance to Social Security—that aim to achieve that goal. In this year’s contest for the Republican nomination, that platform has proven to have staying power.
“We’re all out there like little bee workers trying to get these people elected, and then nothing changes!” said Fay Schall, a 63-year-old conservative Republican from O’Brien County, Iowa. A Trump supporter, she said the real estate tycoon articulates the frustration voters feel, in part because he doesn’t worry about being politically correct. “People are tired of it,” she said. “I think that’s the nerve that Trump is hitting. Everybody is tired of being trampled on. I think that’s what’s resonating.”

Yes, true. But what happens next, after he or Carson or Fiorina or Rubio accepts the nomination, is that the media explains, patiently and repeatedly, that said Republican candidate hates women, LGBT, people of color, elderly people, sick people, near-sighted people, people who prefer cats to dogs, people who can’t stand pets, bicyclists, and pre-school tots. No decent human being would ever vote for a Republican. Health care won’t even come up this time. We have solved that pesky problem.

The Republicans will respond: False! I love my mother! I have grandchildren! I ride a bicycle! And the media will point to their anger and irrational outbursts. Democrats will give everyone a free college education and a pony!

And of course, the public is to blame for this, not really the media. We are the ones that can’t recall what happened during Benghazi, or the IRS scandals. We can’t do the basic math that explains that the median income is actually lower in real dollar terms under Obama. We don’t mind that the Middle East has devolved into gangs of head choppers, many of whom have been re-branded as refugees and reside in Europe. All we know is that the Republicans are bad people, and crazy to boot!

Once you have a poorly educated electorate, you’re screwed.

It’s Putin’s World, We Just Live in It

That’s hardly an original observation, but what does it mean?

The nation we used to call “Haiti with nukes” still is, though Haiti has better weather. It’s still a mess: paranoid; with an aging, sick population; restive Muslims on one flank, resentful eastern Europeans on the other; overreliance on one asset, selling cheaply, now and for the foreseeable future. Just because you’re paranoid…

But the 98-pound weakling is still the baddest-ass guy on the beach if the other guy can’t be bothered to interrupt the prime tanning hours.

US-led coalition forces had not carried out any air strikes in Syria for three days as of Monday, a lull that contrasts with the continued intensity of Russia’s bombing campaign.

According to Pentagon data, the last coalition strike was a drone attack on October 22 that targeted an Islamic State vehicle and a “mortar tube.”

Russia, on the other hand, continues to maintain an intense tempo as it nears the end of its first month of bombing in Syria.

The Russian defense ministry said Monday it had hit 94 targets in just the past 24 hours.

Don’t misunderstand me: I’m not saying Russia has bombed 94 crucial targets. For all I know, they bombed 93 palm trees and a camel. For all I know, they never flew a sortie, but merely announced they did, 94 times.

Whereas we:

“Air strikes ebb and flow… We look at intelligence to find out where we have actionable targets, where we have targets that we can hit without causing civilian damage.

“We simply haven’t had any (recently)… but that doesn’t mean we are not on the lookout for more – and there will be more.”

How can the sackless Jeb Bush be a Pentagon spokesman while running for president? The man has hidden talents.

According to Pentagon figures, the coalition launched 359 air strikes in July. The number dropped to 206 in August and 115 in September.

Continuing the downward trend, there have been 91 strikes so far this month.

“As we continuously seek legitimate targets, it takes time,” said Commander Elissa Smith, a Pentagon spokeswoman.

“The strikes we take are not just randomly against targets; they are part of an organized campaign.”

And that’s the problem.


Vladimir Putin has been asked to help the Afghan government in its fight against Taliban insurgents.

In a clear signal of the worsening security situation in the war-torn country, President Ashraf Ghani has appealed for help from the Kremlin.

He asked Moscow for artillery, small arms and Mi-35 helicopter gunships for his country’s stuggling military, according to officials.

Russian officials have said they are ‘willing to help’.

Hey, Barack Obama! The 1980s called—they said lay off the ganja. They also asked how such a narcissistic underachiever who slouched into Occidental College ever—ever!—got to be a US Senator, let alone president.

A US official told the Wall Street Journal: ‘Russia is seizing the opporunity.’

They got that one right.

She Had it Coming

If Israel hadn’t worn that short skirt, this might not have happened:

“There’s been a massive increase in settlements over the course of the last years,” [John] Kerry said during a question-and-answer session, “and there’s an increase in the violence because there’s this frustration that’s growing.” Kerry noted that there was also “a frustration among Israelis who don’t see any end.”

I think what always perplexes me – we’ve been through Oslo, Wye Plantation, Madrid, countless negotiations. Most people I talk to have a pretty damn good sense of what has to be done.”

The list of things that perplexes John Kerry would reach from Harvard to Tacoma, Washington—and back.

It was the so-called Palestinians who rejected the Oslo so-called accords—two weeks ago. You want cause and effect? The terrorism started shortly afterwards. The “massive increase” in “settlements” he sees is wholly inadequate from my point of view. Israel’s population has doubled in the past 30 years; what would he have them do? Live in a ghetto? Not gonna happen. This time.

Of all the land Israel took from the Arabs like candy from a baby in the suicidal wars they startted (which atarted as genocidal wars), Israel has returned over 90%. (All of Sinai and Gaza, plus Areas A and B in the West Bank comes to 93% by my figuring.)

Besides, the State Department can’t keep its stories straight:

US officials on Tuesday declined to take sides in a debate over Israel’s true policy and intentions regarding the Temple Mount (Haram al-Sharif), a point of tension exacerbating conflict on the ground between Israelis and Palestinians.

Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu has repeatedly blamed Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas for inciting Palestinians to violence, while Abbas claims that Netanyahu seeks to change status quo arrangements on the holy site, where non-Muslims are not allowed to formally pray.

Netanyahu has repeatedly called that accusation a “gross” and “dangerous lie.” But pressed on the matter, State Department officials echoed Abbas’ concerns, suggesting they believe Israel’s policy leaves open the possibility of change at the site.

To be fair to the Obama gruppen, they didn’t invent the Arab apartheid policy atop the Temple Mount. But they deserve their share of the blame for perpetuating it. Barack Obama and John Kerry are the George Wallace and Bull Connor of Jim Crow in Jerusalem. (All four are Democrats, for one.)

Barack Obama and John Kerry are the George Wallace and Bull Connor of Jim Crow in Jerusalem.

Just wanted to make sure you got that.

But if I may suggest to the maggots at State: when your stated policy is to blame the victim of terrorism, stick to one story. Leave the daily humiliation to the Palestinian people, not yourselves.

PS: Have you been reading how hostile Susan Rice is to Israel? It’s in Dennis Ross’s new book. And there’s no one closer to the Obamas not named Valerie (Born in Iran) Jarrett. Or Mr. and Mrs. Bill Ayers. Or Tony Rezko. Or Jeremiah Wright. Or Rashid Khalidi. Or Derrick Bell. Or Rod Blagojevich. Okay, so maybe she’s not so close.

We May Have Lost Crimea and Syria, But at Least We’re on the Right Side of History!

Before I begin the systematic dismantling of Obama’s foreign policy (lack thereof, really), let me observe that the expression “wrong side of history” implies a “right side of history”.

Which reminds me of a song:

Life’s a piece of sh*t
When you look at it…

So true. Yet such small portions!

Now, down to business:

How can Vladimir Putin, with a sinking economy and a second-rate military, continually dictate the course of geopolitical events? Whether it’s in Ukraine or Syria, the Russian president seems always to have the upper hand.

Sometimes the reaction is derision: This is a sign of weakness. Or smugness: He will regret the decision to intervene. Russia cannot possibly succeed. Or alarm: This will make an already bad situation worse. And, finally, resignation: Perhaps the Russians can be brought along to help stabilize the situation, and we could use help fighting the Islamic State.

Why do those random, unrelated positions sound familiar? Of course! Each has been the stated response by the Obama administration.

Oh, by the way, this is not a takedown written by some anonymous blogger with Dorito dust on his fingertips (no one you know); this is a WaPo op-ed written by Condoleezza Rice and Robert Gates—Obama’s Robert Gates.

The fact is that Putin is playing a weak hand extraordinarily well because he knows exactly what he wants to do. He is not stabilizing the situation according to our definition of stability. He is defending Russia’s interests by keeping Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in power. This is not about the Islamic State. Any insurgent group that opposes Russian interests is a terrorist organization to Moscow.

We should not forget that Moscow’s definition of success is not the same as ours. The Russians have shown a willingness to accept and even encourage the creation of so-called failed states and frozen conflicts from Georgia to Moldova to Ukraine. Why should Syria be any different? If Moscow’s “people” can govern only a part of the state but make it impossible for anyone else to govern the rest of it — so be it.

Don’t believe me or Condi—believe John Kerry.

“You just don’t in the 21st century behave in 19th century fashion by invading another country on completely trumped up pre-text.”

That was about Ukraine a year-and-a-half ago. Some people never learn.

Putin’s move into Syria is old-fashioned great-power politics. (Yes, people do that in the 21st century.)

Oh, snap! Sorry you didn’t get your Nobel, John, but you just got pwned!

Russia feels strong at home when it is strong abroad — this is Putin’s plea to his propagandized population — and the Russian people buy it, at least for now. Russia is a great power and derives its self-worth from that. What else is there? When is the last time you bought a Russian product that wasn’t petroleum? Moscow matters again in international politics, and Russian armed forces are on the move.

People still drink Smirnoff and Stoli, don’t they?

Anyway, the authors are not just dismissive of Obama’s dithering; they offer a way forward—which is even more dismissive:

[W]e have to create our own facts on the ground. No-fly zones and safe harbors for populations are not “half-baked” ideas. They worked before (protecting the Kurds for 12?years under Saddam Hussein’s reign of terror) and warrant serious consideration. We will continue to have refugees until people are safe. Moreover, providing robust support for Kurdish forces, Sunni tribes and what’s left of the Iraqi special forces is not “mumbo-jumbo.” It might just salvage our current, failing strategy. A serious commitment to these steps would also solidify our relationship with Turkey, which is reeling from the implications of Moscow’s intervention. In short, we must create a better military balance of power on the ground if we are to seek a political solution acceptable to us and to our allies.

Third, we must “de-conflict” our military activities with those of the Russians. This is distasteful, and we should never have gotten to a place where the Russians are warning us to stay out of their way. But we must do all that we can to prevent an incident between us. Presumably, even Putin shares this concern.

Finally, we need to see Putin for who he is. Stop saying that we want to better understand Russian motives. The Russians know their objective very well: Secure their interests in the Middle East by any means necessary. What’s not clear about that?

Obama’s playing chess, and Putin’s playing checkers. Trouble is, Putin’s winning.

She Has A Point…

How many illegal immigrants did Europe take from Central America?

The United States is the most generous nation in the world, and we have taken many refugees from foreign lands. Europe has not offered to take refugees from Central America, so why are some politicians here insisting that we take many thousands of refugees from the Middle East?

On the other hand, one could argue that since the European refugee problem exists because of the policies of the Obama administration, along with the policies of the EU, that we have a lot to answer for. And when Obama became President, the American public voted for a community organizer who promised to withdraw from Iraq, period. And that when we decided to attack and kill the Libyan Poo-Bah, Moammar Khadaffi, we willfully created chaos. And that when we decided that the Arab Spring was a Ducky Idea™ we destabilized Egypt – population 80 million folks. And that by declaring ISIS the JV Team, we were encouraging them. And that by refusing to help the democracy movement in Iran in 2009, we were strengthening the Mullahs. And that by promising Putin more flexibility in the 2nd term (an open-mic moment), we were encouraging the takeover of Crimea and Eastern Ukraine, as well as the build-up of weapons in Syria.

Other than that, we are blameless.

Dumb and Dumber…and John Kerry

When does he get to our pets’ heads falling off?

SEC. JOHN KERRY: Are you kidding me? The United States is going to start sanctioning our allies and their banks and their businesses [who do business with Iran] because we walked away from a deal?

And we’re going to force them to do what we want them to do — Even though they agreed to the deal we came to?

Are you kidding?

That is a recipe, very quickly, my friends… for them to walk away from Ukraine.

Where they are already very dicey and ready to say they have done their bit.

They’re ready to say, “we’re the ones paying the price for your sanctions.”

It was Obama who went out and actually put together a sanctions regime that had an impact — I went to China. I pursuaded China not to buy more oil.

We pursuaded India and other countries to step back.

Could you imagine trying to sanction them after pursuading them to put in place sanctions to bring Iran to the table, and when they have not only come to the table but they made a deal, we turn around an nix the deal, and then turn around and impose the sanctions anyway.

That is a recipe, my friends, businesspeople here, for the American dollar to cease to be the reserve currency of the world, which is already bubbling out there.

If I didn’t know this administration better, I’d say that sound like blackmail. “Nice currency ya got there. Shame if something happened to it.”


Obama Bends Over Backwards

Is this what he meant by “flexibility”?

The White House is blocking the release of a Pentagon risk assessment of Russia’s violation of the 1987 Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty, according to a senior House leader.

Rep. Mike Rogers, chairman of the House Armed Services strategic forces subcommittee, disclosed the existence of the Pentagon assessment last month and said the report is needed for Congress’ efforts to address the problem in legislation.

“As we look to the near-term future, we need to consider how we’re going to respond to Russia’s INF violations,” Rogers said in an Air Force Association breakfast July 8. “Congress will not continue to tolerate the administration dithering on this issue.”

Rogers said the assessment was conducted by chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey, and noted that it outlines potential responses to the treaty breach.

However, Rogers noted that the assessment “seems to stay tied up in the White House.”

Buckling to the Iranians, hacked by the Chinese, now this. And they’re not even denying it:

At the White House, a senior administration official said: “The United States continues to consider diplomatic, economic, and military responses to Russia’s violation of the INF Treaty.”

Adm. Cecil Haney, commander of the U.S. Strategic Command, said in Omaha recently that a range of options is being studied.

“Clearly as a nation, we have options and we explore those options,” Haney told the Washington Free Beacon, declining to provide details.

A department arms compliance report stated that the breach involved a new missile that violates the limits set by the treaty. The treaty bans holding, producing, or flight-testing ground-launched ballistic or cruise missiles with ranges of between 310 miles and 3,418 miles.

Rogers was asked what steps Congress should take if the administration continues to ignore the treaty violation.

“Well, the fact is we haven’t been doing enough so far,” he said. “It was only about a year and a half ago that the administration finally acknowledged that Russia has been violating the INF Treaty. But we know they’ve been violating it for several years.”

Rogers said President Obama has stated “in his normal dilatory fashion,” that he has directed the chairman of the Joint Chiefs to consider options for U.S. response.

“Those were given to him last December,” Rogers said. “The president is still pondering what the chairman of the Joint Chiefs told him we should do.”

Undoubtedly, critics will be dismissed as warmongering neocons who got us into the Iraq War (which was well over a decade ago now). But in light of this report and the Iranian fleecing of the same group of stooges, one has to ask what is our deterrence? Russian war planes buzz with abandon, Russian troops still occupy parts of Ukraine and Georgia, now Russian missile debris has been found at the site of the plaine crash in Ukraine. What, if anything, do we intend to do about any of this?

Exactly How Dumb Is Obama?

Do you remember how he treated Mitt Romney when he said that Russia was our biggest threat? Look at what his people are saying now.

Russia presents the greatest threat to U.S. national security and its behavior is “nothing short of alarming,” Marine Corps General Joseph Dunford told lawmakers on Thursday as they weighed his nomination to become chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Dunford also added his voice to those Pentagon officials who have supported providing lethal arms to Ukraine to help it defend itself from Russia-backed separatists, a step that President Barack Obama has so far resisted.

“My assessment today, senator, is that Russia presents the greatest threat to our national security,” said Dunford, the Marine Corps commandant, who is expected to swiftly win Senate confirmation to become the top U.S. military officer.

Ok, watch this:

To be clear, I am less concerned about Ukraine than I am about the fact that we are being led by a blithering idiot.

“We Came, We Saw, He Died”

Hillary’s disturbing, even psychopathic, dispatch of Muammar Qaddafi:

But he’s got company, Madame Secretary:

Well, yes, them too. But I meant:

The ISIS terror group kidnapped 88 Eritrean Christians from a people-smugglers’ caravan in Libya last week, a U.S. defense official confirmed Monday.

The defense official confirmed initial reports of the mass kidnapping to Fox News after seeing a recent intelligence report. The independent Libya Herald newspaper reported that the convoy was ambushed by militants south of Tripoli before dawn this past Wednesday morning.

In February, Libyan militants proclaiming loyalty to ISIS released a video showing the beheading of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians at the edge of the Mediterranean Sea. Two months later, another video showed the militants shooting and beheading an indeterminate number of Ethiopian Christians.

They ought to be running low pretty soon. But maybe the dead Christians are the lucky Christians:

HOLLY WILLIAMS, CBS NEWS, MISRATA, LIBYA: Libya is in a state of civil war, and as this country has descended into chaos and lawlessness, it has become fertile ground for human smugglers.

If there is a Hell on our Earth, this stinking, squalid Libyan prison is it. This is where migrants who are caught trying to get to Europe are locked up for months on end waiting to be deported. Packed 50 to a room, they are infected with lice and sometimes beaten by the Libya guards. Many here paid human smugglers to get them across the Mediterranean Sea, but instead they were picked up by the Libyan Coast Guard…

Still laughing, Madame Secretary? Me too.

Of course, she’s not the only one who got Libya wrong:

SCOTT WALKER: It’s interesting for the president, the guy who called ISIS the ‘JV squad’ and Yemen a success story, somehow suggesting someone else should bone up on foreign policy…

Good one, Scott!

We Came, We Saw, They Died

Hillary’s infamous eulogy for Muammar Qaddafi will follow her to the end of time.

I hope.

He wasn’t the only one, Madame Secretary:

The White House Sunday evening condemned a video purportedly showing a mass execution of Ethiopian Christians in Libya by terrorists affiliated with Islamic State.

“We express our condolences to the families of the victims and our support to the Ethiopian government and people as they grieve for their fellow citizens,” National Security Council spokesperson Bernadette Meehan said in a statement. “That these terrorists killed these men solely because of their faith lays bare the terrorists’ vicious, senseless brutality.”

In the video released Sunday, Islamic State militants in Libya shot and beheaded groups of captive Ethiopian Christians. The attack widens the circle of nations affected by the group’s atrocities while showing its growth beyond a self-declared caliphate in Syria and Iraq.

The release of the 29-minute video comes a day after Afghanistan’s president blamed the extremists for a suicide attack in his country that killed at least 35 people — and underscores the chaos gripping Libya after its 2011 civil war and the killing of dictator Muammar Qaddafi.

How did we get to this appalling state?

In case you don’t remember:

“It is a time-limited, scope-limited military action” – White House Press Secretary Jay Carney

-“Kinetic military action” – Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhode

-“Limited and well-defined mission in support of international efforts to protect civilians and prevent a humanitarian disaster.” – Obama told lawmakers in a letter

-“To use america’s unique capabilities to create the conditions for the no-fly zone and assist meeting urgent humanitarian needs.” -Secretary of State Hillary Clinton

-“Preventing an imminent humanitarian crisis in Libya.”- House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi

How’s that working out?

Under Bush, America won in Iraq, then lost it, then won it again. Two-and-one is a winning record, but that’s not how you read it in the newspapers. Today, Libya is an outright loss, as is Iraq (again), Syria, Yemen—and Afghanistan is re-re-slipping away.

So much for the Obama doctrine:

Obama may be moving toward something resembling a doctrine. One of his advisers described the President’s actions in Libya as “leading from behind.” That’s not a slogan designed for signs at the 2012 Democratic Convention, but it does accurately describe the balance that Obama now seems to be finding.

We’re “leading from behind” while Christians (and US diplomatic personnel) are losing their heads. The sick jokes practically make themselves.


The Smartest Man in Washington

Jay Carney, of course, for getting out of the no-win job of trying to spin Obama’s serial failures. Now, poor Josh Earnest has to explain how on earth Yemen and Somalia are models of US counterterrorism strategy.

Yemen is a complete cluster, as everyone but the earnest Earnest concedes.

But Somalia is no day at the beach, either, as if it ever has been:

A siege that started with gunmen detonating a bomb and spraying bullets in a hotel in Somalia ended Saturday with at least 20 people dead, authorities said.

The attack, which lasted hours, began when gunmen raided the hotel in Mogadishu on Friday evening.

Yusuf Mohamed Ismail Bari-Bari, Somalia’s permanent representative to the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland, was among those killed in the attack, the Somali government said.

Not so permanent, then, was he?


Somali president Hassan Sheikh Mohamud condemned the attack as a “heinous and inhuman act” in an interview with state-run Radio Mogadishu during an official visit to Egypt.

In a statement, Somali Prime Minister Omar Abdirashid Ali Sharmarke said Al-Shabaab’s “talk of ‘legitimate targets’ and ‘justification'” exposes “the sham logic behind their lust for terror.”

“These terrorists contradict Islam and betray Somalia,” he said.

If you say so. I think they feel the same about you.

Al-Shabaab said it targeted the hotel because its guests are spies and government officials.

The terror group has been active in Somalia for years.

Initially, its goal was implementing a stricter form of Islamic law, or Sharia, by warring against the Somali government. It has since shifted its focus to launching terror attacks in Somalia and beyond.

“We reiterate again that there will be no safe haven for the crusaders and apostates in Somalia, and that our attacks on them will continue until the enemy of Allah (is) defeated and his law is implemented fully in Somalia,” the group said in a statement.

Maybe they could resolve their differences if they sat down together and chewed the fatwa.



Those on Whose Behalf Obama Fights

Which do you think makes Obama more angry, Netanyahu’s victory in the election—or this?

Last week, the Palestinian Authority celebrated the anniversary of the Coastal Road Massacre in which Palestinian terrorists murdered 37 Israeli civilians, by dedicating a monument in a square in Ramallah to terrorist Dalal Mughrabi, who led the bus hijacking in 1978.

Mughrabi Square is adorned with a large monument in the shape of what the PA tells its people is “Palestine” – a map that includes all of the State of Israel. In the center of the monument, there is an image of terrorist Mughrabi holding a rifle.

PA TV News broadcast the message of a cleric from the event, indicating that the lesson that Palestinians take from the Mughrabi attack is that murder is the way to “liberate the homeland”:

“Dalal, God bless her, this female Martyr, she taught us how we can liberate the homeland… We all see her as a model and as a symbol for us.”

This glorification of murder is not only odious; it is also a slap in the face to the Israeli and US governments who fought against this act. In 2010, Palestinian Media Watch first reported that the Palestinian Authority intended to name the square after Mughrabi. US Vice President Biden happened to be in Israel at the time, and Israeli news reported that PM Netanyahu asked Biden to put pressure on the PA to cancel the event. Abbas gave in and cancelled the event, although Fatah officials participated in a “popular inauguration.”

Twenty members of US Congress then signed a letter to Abbas condemning the terror glorification.

Secretary of State Clinton likewise condemned it, saying that naming “a square after a terrorist who murdered innocent Israelis” was “wrong and must be condemned.” [Clinton speech to AIPAC, March 22, 2010]

However, last week, while Israel was busy with upcoming elections and the US focused on Iran and Islamic State, the PA chose to glorify this mass murderer of Israeli civilians.

Who since Auguste Rodin could have sculpted such a challenging pose?

Don’t move, Dalal! Hold that position.

Anyone who’s read this blog knows who Dalal Mughrabi is. Does Obama? Which answer is worse, that he does or doesn’t?
