Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu makes some good points on CNN.  See the whole interview here.

A Prophecy Fulfilled? 94 years later to the day ...
"As democracy is perfected, the office of the President represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people.  On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron." 

Mencken, Baltimore Evening Sun, July 26, 1920

Obama may legalize 5 million illegal immigrant parents Barack Obama appears poised to take executive action that would legalize as many as 5 million illegal immigrant parents of US-born children.  White House officials are laying the groundwork for an executive order that would automatically legalize roughly 5 million of an estimated 11 million people who have entered the country without legal authorization or overstayed their visas. (ED: The only way to stop him is simple: cut off all his funding.  Congress should suspend all funding of all Executive actions - and even Air Force One - until January 20, 2017. End of problems.)

ObamaCare getaway: Administration exempts 5 US territories from law
The Obama Administartion is under fire for quietly exempting five US territories — including Puerto Rico — from virtually all major provisions of the health care law, leading some to question the government's authority to suddenly grant 4.1 million Americans an out from ObamaCare.

Sarah Palin has found a way to circumvent the socialist media:

Victor Sharpe:
Western European nations are now submerged in an ever growing, Sharia compliant, Islamic monster that is within the gates. In a generation or two, France, Belgium, Spain, Germany, Holland, the Scandinavian countries and Britain may no longer retain a Judeo-Christian culture or civilization except in small pockets; always besieged by a Muslim majority they so foolishly allowed to grow and strengthen within their borders. (ED: Victor's excellent analysis is probably the best article you will read this week - or this year.  Take a few minutes to read and digest this.)

Israel’s most dangerous enemy
Roger Simon: Barack Obama is apparently very angry with Bibi Netanyahu.  Obama reportedly used or implied the threat of withholding the resupply of weapons — don’t know if this includes the Iron Dome itself — if Israel didn’t fall into line and stop attacking Gaza immediately.  What Obama is doing, in effect, is saving Hamas. It’s almost mind boggling to think, but it’s true.  Obama may be on the rocks, but he’s quite willing to take us all — and I mean the global all — down with him.

UN Chief tells Israel to end “nearly half a century of occupation”  of Gaza
(ED: Can someone so senior be so shockingly ignorant or bigoted?  Israel permanently left the Gaza Strip in 2005, having built farms, schools, hospitals and houses there since 1967.)
The Times of Israel

French exodus: "When Jews flee, a nation is sick"
In the suburbs of Paris, a Jewish family gathers to read the Torah. But soon they will be gone. They're part of a growing number of French Jews and leaving their country because the future simply looks too dangerous.

Son of Hamas founder converts to Christianity, goes on CNN, exposes Hamas
This is powerful.  Hamas does not want to coexist with Israel.  It’s that simple.

Iran Supreme Leader: The only solution for crisis is Israel’s destruction Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, says that the only solution for the region is the destruction of Israel, and that the armed confrontation must expand beyond Gaza. (ED: Or, of course, alternatively ...)

John Kerry: The betrayal
David Horovitz: John Kerry's ceasefire proposal has managed to unite Israel’s disparate group of key political leaders in a unanimous response of horrified rejection and leaked castigation.  The Israelis have described John Kerry as amateurish, incompetent, incapable of understanding the material he is dealing with — in short, a blithering fool.
The Times of Israel

Israel can win  ... if Obama doesn't save Hamas
Matthew Continetti: Slandered, despised, insulted, degraded, Israel is nonetheless winning its war against Hamas. There is no ceasefire in Gaza because a ceasefire is in no one’s interest.  Hamas is not interested in minimizing pain. Hamas wants to maximize it.  Who wants a ceasefire? Obama and Kerry.  If they won’t stand behind Israel, they should at least get out of the way. And let the IDF finish the job.
Washington Free Beacon

Providence is not just a city in Rhode Island
Clarice Feldman:  Every now and then we are reminded by events that providence has saved our civilization from disaster
Kerry and Obama are being ignored around the world. They are seen as weak laughingstocks in a world marked with fighting and hostilities. One wonders if it has yet occurred to them that when they pooh-poohed American exceptionalism, insulted our oldest allies, reached out repeatedly to embrace our worse enemies, and denigrated their own land, that maybe -- just maybe -- they were also diminishing their own power and role upon the world stage?

Israeli science website: Obama birth certificate forged
Israel Science and Technology, the national database and directory of science and technology-related websites in Israel, says the publication “of such a blatantly fake document about something so basic as the birthplace of Mr. Obama, should raise great concern about the suitability of the person who is holding the reigns on the most powerful country of the World.”

Was Barack Obama a foreign exchange student?

A former classmate has added a tantalizing question to the mysteries surrounding Barack Obama's college years. Perhaps the GOP nominee, whose tax records are demanded, should call the president's bluff. Not many students whose grades supposedly were good enough to get into Harvard Law School can say that 425 of their classmates taken randomly don't remember a single thing about him or his even being there. But Barack Obama, Columbia University class of '83, can.

Obama’s college classmate: The Obama scandal is at Columbia

Wayne Allyn Root:
I am Barack Obama’s classmate at Columbia University, Class of ’83. And I smell something rotten. (ED: This is a must-read. Mr. Root echoes everything we had already told you: the person known as Barack Obama is not a US citizen, much less natural-born. And that's not his name either. Mr. Root says - and we agree - that there is an imposter in the White House.)
The Blaze

A summary of some of Mr. Root's charges against "Obama":

* He rarely ever attended class at Columbia.
* His grades there do not suggest he could get into Harvard Law School
* He appears to have attended Columbia as a foreign exchange student.
* He never paid for either college or Harvard Law School because of foreign aid and scholarships
* His legal name is still Barry Soetoro.

* His citizenship appears to still be Indonesian. There is no evidence that his mother ever changed him back to being a US citizen.

Is there an imposter in the White House?

There is something very wrong when the sitting president refuses to divulge huge pieces of information about his background. What is he hiding?

Was communist mentor intimate with Obama's mother?

Did Obama build his political career on a fairy tale that his father was a Kenyan who grew up herding goats? Was Obama’s goal in writing his autobiography, “Dreams from My Father,” to misdirect Americans away from a deeply disturbing family background and a Marxist political foundation? Was Frank Marshall Davis the [pseudo] president’s biological father, not the Kenyan Barack Obama? (ED: Yes, yes and yes!)

The unraveling of Barry Soetoro, a/k/a Barack Hussein Obama II

Doug Hagmann & Joseph Hagmann: It is likely that the man sitting in the Oval Office is, in fact, Barry Soetoro, and holds Indonesian citizenship.
