» Hamas Sacrifices Civilians as a Military Tactic
As the rockets continue to fall in Israel and Gaza, it is important to understand Hamas’s tactic and how the international community and the media are encouraging it.
Hamas’s tactic is as simple as it is criminal and brutal. Its leaders know that by repeatedly firing rockets at Israeli civilian areas, they will give Israel no choice but to respond. Israel’s response will target the rockets and those sending them. In order to maximize their own civilian casualties, and thereby earn the sympathy of the international community and media, Hamas leaders deliberately fire their rockets from densely populated civilian areas. The Hamas fighters hide in underground bunkers but Hamas refuses to provide any shelter for its own civilians, who they use as “human shields.”
This is not some new tactic. It’s the same methods employed by the Hezbo in Lebanon, the Talibuts in Afghanistan, and the Al-Q in Iraq and Pakistan. They snipe from behind women and children, daring Israel and America to take the shot – hoping for dead bodies to parade around while screaming and crying.
Don’t take my word for it, I’m just a rightwing racist after all ….
» Hamas Interior Minister Boasts of Using Elderly and Children as Human Shields
Human shields does not just refer to a policy of using civilians as cover in firefights, but to deliberately planting civilians, including children, in locations likely to be targeted in order to manufacture atrocities.
Not a new tactic, not news at all – but expected and so very predictable.
Also predictable is the necessity to explain it over and over and over and over to the bonehead liberal dhimmis that stand ready to stomp around in our streets screaming and crying over the dead human shield bodies being paraded by the tender palestinian terrorists.
So today the Palestinian Association of Hamilton (Ontario) held a rally to protest the brutal Israeli violence rained down on the people of Gaza. To promote the event, they used a heartrending picture of an innocent Palestinian baby bloodily injured by the Israeli war machine’s indiscriminate bombing raids on Gaza.
Unfortunately, the innocent Palestinian baby turns out to be an innocent Israeli baby bloodily injured by Palestinian rockets in the Hamas attack on Kiryat Malachi.
Oh, well. Close enough for the western media.

Well, that’s a theory that’s easily tested, Mara Schiavocampo.
You stand over there, way over there, while we get this harmless little toy ready to go …. where’s those instructions? Anybody here read Arabic?
» How the New York Times Covers Evil
The author probably meant “Covers For Evil” …..
On Friday, on its front page, the Times featured two three-column wide photos. The top one was of Gaza Muslim mourners alongside the dead body of al-Jabari. The photo below was of Israeli Jews mourning alongside the dead body of Mira Scharf, a 27-year-old mother of three.
What possible reason could there be for the New York Times to give identical space to these two pictures? One of the dead, after all, was a murderer, and the other was one of his victims.
The most plausible reason is that the Times wanted to depict through pictures a sort of moral equivalence: Look, sophisticated Times readers, virtually identical scenes of death and mourning on both sides of the conflict. How tragic.
As the flagship news source of the left, the New York Times reveals the great moral failing inherent to leftism — its combination of moral relativism and the division of the world between strong and weak, Western and non-Western, and rich and poor, rather than between good and evil.
I hereby offer a wager that none of those commie teachers have ever had their butts whipped by an indignant parent.
One person who attended the conference noted that with the abundance of teachers and their response to the messages and participation in the workshops, it gave a clear message that the Chicago Teachers Union is one with the local Marxists.
Each of the sessions that this person attended started with congratulating Barack Obama for winning his re-election. After listening to language filled with hate and anger aimed at America it became obvious to this person that the agenda of the Chicago socialists and teachers was to change society to be more like that of the former Soviet Union. He noticed that the philosophy of mass murderers such as Lenin were upheld and embraced by those in attendance. Teachers strategize on what and how to teach the school kids in Chicago to train them up with the Marxist philosophy.
I also noticed in the list of topics how they enjoin Marxism with the labor unions, with the Democratic Party, with women’s liberation, and with racism. They are clearly infiltrating all areas that are associated with today’s liberals and progressives which ultimately make up the Democratic Party.
Parents please take note of this especially if you live in the Chicago area. Do you know what the schools are teaching your children?
In President Obama’s post-election victory speech he spoke of creating a future that would not be “threatened by the destructive power of a warming planet.”
Obama expounded on that remark the following week in a press event stating, “I am a firm believer that climate change is real, that it is impacted by human behavior and carbon emissions.”
To gain an understanding of what Obama will do during his next four years let’s review how he punished fossil fuel producers during his first term, beginning first with the oil industry ………….
Obama has been at war with oil, coal, and natural gas for four years. He’s now a lame duck president who has made it clear he wants to save the planet. Prepare for the President to double down with his attack on fossil fuels. As a result the U.S. will continue to be OPEC’s favorite sucker, unemployment will continue to rise within the coal community, and the only significant fracking will be on private land—not the federally owned and managed land that belongs to We The People.
» What Explains The Partisan Divide Between Urban And Non-Urban Areas
When looking at maps of the United States showing red for counties where the Republican candidate received more votes and blue for counties where the Democrats won, one can’t help but be struck by the predominance of red. Basically, the urban metropolises are Democratic blue and the vast expanse of most of the rest of the country is overwhelmingly red. If presidents were elected by acreage rather than by head count, Republicans would win national elections by landslides.
Look at it another way: take Philly out of Pennsylvania, the Big Apple out of New York, the Motor City out of Michigan, the Windy City out of Illinois, Cleveland out of Ohio, Milwaukee out of Wisconsin, St. Louis out of Missouri, etc., and a lot of blue states would instantly be red. What explains this pronounced and hugely significant partisan divide between urban and nonurban areas?
Sociologists could have a field day with this question, but the explanation could be something as simple as the fact that people who live in cities are relatively insulated from how difficult and challenging it can be to produce the food, energy, equipment, devices, etc., that comprise the affluence that urbanites enjoy
…. Life in the city for affluent Americans creates the illusion that all they have to do is demand something and—presto!—it will be there when they want it.
Affluent denizens of our metropolises see no inconsistency in supporting the Democratic jihad against “greedy corporations” and “the rich” while also expecting their every whim to be supplied, often by those same corporations and successful entrepreneurs.
…. liberals suffer from a self-satisfied delusion about how the world works. Like the ivory-tower academics who enthuse about socialism because they have never experienced the harsh realities of socialism, so today, many denizens of our big cities are afflicted with a “metropolitan blind spot” that causes them to support irrational, ultimately self-destructive policies. Thus, America’s metropolises will continue to be painted blue at every election unless the people there awaken from their smug delusions.
I would change that last sentence by replacing “unless” with “until” – that is, until the delusional urbanites face the stark reality of the coming economic collapse. And it is coming – the mathematics say so, and math is never denied.
The Obamabots of the big cities, the majority thereof, have never spent a few seconds considering how all the grocery stores shelves stay full of food or where that food comes from or how quickly it can disappear.
So, what other questions are answered?
Why does the Progressive agenda include so many issues that would push more people into the cities? One example: public transportation – busses, trains etc., …. effectively only within large metropolitan areas …. accompanied by constant vilification of private transportation.
“The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: ‘I’m from the government, and I’m here to help.’”
– President Ronald Reagan
Those wise and yet haunting words spoken by one of our nation’s greatest presidents couldn’t ring more true – especially today, as winter sets in on an estimated 130,000 of our fellow Americans who are still struggling without power. Many live without heat, hot water or inhabitable homes and question the government’s efforts to alleviate their condition.
Amid the election frenzy, several mainstream media outlets instantly praised the Obama administration’s response to the Hurricane Sandy devastation in the Northeast. But let’s look beneath the congratulatory headlines to see the real and horrifying picture of what’s happening.
At least they are honest about it. They mean to push us out of our own country — that is, out of existence:
Our quisling government is 100% on their side, advancing their agenda as aggressively as they can without sparking resistance. Very soon it will be too late for resistance.

Granting for the sake of argument that “altruistic intentions” mitigate crimes, only a moonbat could imagine there to be anything altruistic about preventing scientists from increasing the nutritional value of crops so as to impose a nakedly anti-human ideology. Greenpeace practices evil for the sake of evil, and to call it altruistic is evil.
» HAPPY ‘VIOLENCE, DISEASE, & LAND THEFT’ THANKSGIVING? THIS MSNBC ANCHOR THINKS SO
The historical basis of unions revolved around workers receiving a reasonable share of a company’s profits. But that tenet is nonsensical when applied to public service. Governments don’t make profits; they simply assess taxes.
…. The aims of public sector unions conflict directly with the interests of taxpayers.
…. So how have public sector unions achieved these amazing results? The answer is the hundreds of millions of dollars that unions have donated to federal campaigns since 1990. Almost every single dollar went to Democrats or Democrat causes. In the 2008 election alone, some estimates put public sector union contributions to Democrats at $60 million.
This week, in defending the public statements of his UN Ambassador Susan Rice, Obama said we should come after him, not her. Pugnacious remark — just like the gingerbread man’s. Last time I recall a politician making a remark like that it was Gary Hart who challenged reporters to tail him if they thought reports of his womanizing were true. As you certainly recall, the press came after him, caught him, and his political ambitions were dashed. This time, as I’ll explain, in the absence of a properly functioning press corps, only a Congress ready and willing to pursue the truth — even if it means impeaching the president — can catch the gingerbread man.
As the stories of the participants vary so much on the issue of who was responsible for failing to mount a rescue operation in Benghazi and who lied to the Congress and public to hide the fact that this was a terrorist attack, not a spontaneous uprising by locals infuriated by a movie trailer, focus on what happened increased this week ………….
What do you suppose President Obama’s initial instruction were to his agency heads: Lisa Jackson at the EPA, Dr. Steven Chu at Energy, Ken Salazar at Interior and Tom Vilsack at Agriculture? “Go forth and regulate. Wrap American business in enough red tape to hamstring their efforts to grow or prosper. Restrict energy wherever you can, favoring 21st Century green power, use lots of ethanol— fuel of the future, and try to get rid of dirty coal.”
One would hope that such orders were improbable, but the results would seem to indicate something along those lines.
