Watcher's Council

The Council has spoken! Here are this week's Watcher's Council results. The winner is Joshuapundit’s Why So Many Jews Support The Left – And Why They’re So Anti- Israel.

The Weasel of the Week is Democrat Front Runner Hillary Clinton! It's very frightening to imagine her as our next president.

Debategate

National Review was tweeting tonight's Republican debate, but you didn't even have to read the comments to know how biased the CNBC panel was. I barely made it through the first hour and found the only highlights to be Marco Rubio's spirited performance, and Ted Cruz's excellent attack on the mainstream media.

Others were tweeting the debate, the tweets shown on the bottom of the TV screen, and Hillary Clinton of course said millionaires didn't need tax breaks. Does she include herself in that category?

Argus Hamilton Quips

Check out Hamilton's latest column, which includes news items such as this one: "Hillary e-mailed that Benghazi was a terror attack the night it happened but she got away with blaming it on an anti-Muslim video. House Republicans could catch Obama in a motel room with a gun in his hand, a dead intern on the floor and fifty million in Chinese gold, and they'd still blow it."

Doesn't This Ever Stop?

Here we go again!  "Jewish and Zionist groups responded furiously to a full page advertisement in the Tuesday edition of the UK Guardian that supported an academic boycott of Israel, signed by 343 academic staff." Sometimes I think this must be a psychiatric disorder.  Don't these people have better things to do than hate Israel?

In response, we should print a full-page ad showing the e-mail addresses of these signers so we can bombard them with our protests and with our support for Israel.

Celebrating Sinatra

I just love reading Mark Steyn's columns celebrating Frank Sinatra's greatest hits.  He talks about the composer, the arranger, the history of the song -- you name it. In this one, he discusses "Strangers in the Night."

Mass Driving

"STILLWATER, Okla.- A homecoming parade in Stillwater turned tragic after an incident that left at least three people dead and dozens injured. Stillwater Police say there are 8 people in critical condition, 7 listed as serious and 7 others called ‘walking wounded’."  You've heard of mass shootings, which get so much attention? This is a mass driving, which has happened many times before. Unfortunately, it doesn't get as much media attention and political outrage as shootings, and it doesn't get the U.S. President involved -- but the results are sure the same.

Bonus: just when you think political correctness can't get any more ridiculous: "According to the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee, the phrase 'politically correct' is now politically incorrect."

Watcher's Council

Time for the Weasel of the Week -- and although it should be Hillary Clinton, who's still blaming that video for Benghazi, it's actually Disney’s New Anti-American Far Left ‘Captain America’!

Painful and Intolerable

In his excellent column, Bernard Henri-Levi lists "Things We Need to Stop Hearing About the 'Stabbing Intifada'".  But as usual when Jews are the victims, it's like talking to a wall.

Argus Hamilton Quips

The humorist's latest column includes such news items as this:  "A Gallup Poll showed Americans are looking this election for a president who doesn't just talk the talk, but walks the walk. It's why people loved Hillary. In The Democrat debate Hillary vowed to halt the excesses of capitalism, and she hasn't charged three hundred thousand dollars for a speech since."

Oy Canada!

What a terrible shame that Canadians have elected their own version of Obama in Justin Trudeau!

JEWISH!

You have to watch this video and pass it on. It's called I'm That Jew and, as its creator Eitan Chitayat describes it, “[B]ecause of all the violence directed at us, the hatred, the incitement to kill, the vile words, the missiles, the rockets, the knives, the rocks, the deafening silence of the world that we all feel right now – we should be proud of our heritage, accomplishments and spirit.” And we are!

Loathesome Publicity Seekers

Here's the best 1-sentence description of the Kardashians, who, I saw on the news, suddenly want their privacy respected: "And so Lamar Odom’s fight for life competes with Kim Kardashian’s vagina for attention — which, in Kardashian world, is the way it should be."

Remember, these are people who became famous thanks to a sex tape and who have posed nude online, among  other things. Since when has privacy mattered to them?

You Can Say That Again!

A good point at American Power: "Radical Leftists Demand 'Justice for Palestinians' at Anti-Israel Protest in London (VIDEO).  Behold the complete moral bankruptcy of the contemporary 'progressive' left. When you're protesting to defend Palestinians murdering innocent Jews with butcher knives and meat cleavers, there's something deeply wrong with your fundamental values."

Nazistinians

Obama is a hypocrite.  When a white cop shoots and kills a black criminal, it's automatically "racism". But when Arabs stab Jews in Israel, it's merely "random violence."

Ian Tuttle reports on the disgraceful media bias against Israel. No surprise there!

David M.Weinberg wishes Kerry would stay home, and writes, "There was a time when Israel could rely on America as its ultimate ally, and as a solidly honest broker in Mideast crises. Then came Obama and Kerry. Their administration is more problem than partner. We don't need Kerry to fly here with admonitions for Israel and rewards for Palestinian extremism."

Watcher's Council

The Weasel of the Week is someone with whom we are unfortunately very familiar, and yes, he's at it again: Barack Obama’s ‘Spiritual Mentor,’ Anti-Semite And America Hater Jeremiah Wright! 

The Council has spoken! Here are this week's Watcher's Council results.

All the news that's fit to print can be found at Betsy's Page, Maggie's Farm, and Larwyn's Linx.

And, as usual, it's time to blame the Jews: "Israeli officials voiced outrage on Thursday after the U.S. State Department suggested that Israel 'may have used excessive force' in quelling the recent surge of Palestinian and Israeli Arab violence targeting Israeli civilians and security forces."

No Peace With Palestinian Nazis!

David French writes at National Review: "There’s never been a real solution for this cycle of violence absent large-scale Muslim acceptance of Israel’s right to exist. But until that day comes, we can at least acknowledge reality and oppose evil. That means telling Abbas that he can hate Jews on his own dime and that when Israel cracks down on the violence he encourages — as it must — he can’t cry out to the United States for help. We don’t stand on the side of crazed religious bigots. But Barack Obama is still in the Oval Office, and that means he’ll find a way to blame Israel. He’ll find a way to excuse jihad. And he’ll find a way to undermine our own power and influence in the Middle East. Savvy jihadists know this all too well. So when pondering whether to launch yet another round of terrorist violence, they may well believe there’s no time like the present. Sadly, they may well be right."

Going Global


You won't be surprised to hear this: "There have since been dozens of attacks, and murders most involving Muslim terrorists stabbing Jewish civilians. The UN response? Ban Ki-moon questions whether Israel uses too much force when trying to stop terror attacks. No reported comment on Palestinian terrorism." (via Pamela Geller).

Funny how Obama takes global warming more seriously than he takes global jihad.

#JewishLivesMatter

You must read Michael Fruend's column, #JewishLivesMatter.  He writes,
"It is an intuitive anti-Semitism that is at work, one that speaks volumes about those who cannot muster the minimal moral courage needed to decry the murder of innocent Jews. We cannot remain silent. We dare not turn taciturn and allow this to pass unnoticed. Let's raise our voices and shout from the roof-tops, flood social-media and storm the fortresses of ignorance and anti-Jewish bigotry. Seventy years after Auschwitz it should not need to be said, but apparently it still does: Jewish lives matter too. It is time we remind the world of this simple and unassailable truth.
Use the hashtag #JewishLivesMatter and spread this message at every opportunity."

Unfortunately, it seems that Jewish lives matter only to other Jews.

Argus Hamilton Quips

End your Monday with some humor from Argus Hamilton, including this news item: "Oil and Gas Journal said oil companies are lobbying Congress to end the forty-year-long ban on U.S. oil exports. There's one problem. Some people worry that once the Republicans are back in the White House and we are marked as an oil-producing nation, we could end up invading ourselves."

The Weasel of the Week is WGN TV’s Production Department!  PumaBydesign001's Blog explains:  "My nominee for Weasel of the Week are the boneheads in the production department at WGN-TV, Chicago who chose for last week’s news story on Yom Kippur that horrible image of the yellow Star of David that Nazis forced Jews to wear during the Holocaust."   *sigh*

One More Time

Stop the endless TV coverage and read this 2013 Wall Street Journal article -- yet again: What Mass Killers Want—And How to Stop Them. Rampage shooters crave the spotlight, and we should do everything possible to deprive them of it.
The suggestions? "Never publish a shooter's propaganda.  Hide their names and faces.  Don't report on biography or speculate on motive.   Minimize specifics and gory details.  No photos or videos of the event.  Talk about the victims but minimize images of grieving families. Decrease the saturation. Tell a different story."

How a Real Leader Speaks

I was lucky enough to be able to watch some of Netanyahu's very powerful speech at the United Nations around noon today. As the Jerusalem Post described it,  "Netanyahu slams UN's 'deafening silence' in face of Iranian threats to wipe out Israel." 

Unfortunately, as usual, nobody listens and nobody cares.  Churchill was treated like a pariah for realizing the Nazi menace before anyone else,  and Netanyahu is treated with the same contempt, especially by our own country. It makes me sick. While Israel recognizes evil, Obama negotiates with evil.
