Former President Jimmy Carter, who once accused Israel of being an "apartheid state" worse than South Africa, has gone even further, rebuking the Jewish State for the way it has waged war with Hamas while actually siding with the terrorists.
Writing together with former Irish president Mary Robinson in Foreign Policy magazine, Mr. Carter stated that, "There is no humane or legal justification for the way the Israeli Defense Forces are conducting this war," calling on Israel and the West to recognize Hamas's "legitimacy as a political actor."
Mr. Carter claims that Hamas, by recently joining together with the Palestinian Authority, "pledged to adopt the three basic principles demanded by the Middle East Quartet comprised of the United Nations, the United States, the European Union, and Russia: nonviolence, recognition of Israel, and adherence to past agreements." more >>
A member of the U.S. Army Band said he was forced out of the U.S. Army for having anti-Obama bumper stickers on his personal car, serving Chick-fil-A sandwiches at a party and reading books written by conservative authors like Sean Hannity, a federal lawsuit alleges.
Master Sergeant Nathan Sommers, a 25-year veteran of the military and a decorated soloist in the U.S. Army Band Chorus, claims he was forcibly retired from the Army due to his religious and conservative political beliefs. I first told you about Sommers last year in a series of exclusive Fox News reports.
John Wells, an attorney representing Sommers, called him a "true hero" who lost his career while trying to stand up for his religious beliefs." He alleges that he drew the ire of his superiors because of his belief in traditional marriage. more >>
It's difficult to overstate the petulance of our president. In his latest press conference, Obama took credit for every perceived good and blamed Republicans for every perceived bad. He blasted Congress for going on vacation as he was leaving for his in Martha's Vineyard. Between golf and fund raising, I'm surprised he has time for vacation.
Currently, ISIS is on the march in Iraq; border wars rage; Mexico holds a US Marine; and Syria, Gaza/Israel, Afghanistan, Libya, and Ukraine are theaters of war with escalating violence. They are not really "theaters of war" anymore; they are more like a multiplex 16.
The cumulative effect of Obama's feckless foreign policy is weakness. more >>
While some Democrats recently claimed that Republicans will try to impeach President Barack Obama, that outcome is unlikely, according to an expert interviewed by The Christian Post.
President Andrew Johnson was impeached by the House, but acquitted by the Senate. The same happened to President Bill Clinton. President Richard Nixon resigned before he could be impeached.
These men were brought (or almost brought) to trial because of actions that were "obstructive to justice"… so why is there so much talk of President Barack Obama being impeached? more >>
President Obama recently signed an executive order making it illegal for federal contractors to discriminate against gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender employees. Sounds innocuous enough, but an unintended consequence may be the closing of Christian colleges and schools.
The order doesn't directly affect private education, but its unprecedented refusal to exempt religious organizations surely will. Without this exemption the President has signaled to regulators that it's open season on faith-based institutions.
Here's one possible future: The order says if you want federal money you must hire gays. The US Department of Education decides that this applies to federal financial aid as well. Students are then prohibited from using their aid at colleges that do not hire gays. Christian colleges go out of business. more >>
A slightly lower pass rate for women on a physical fitness test has prompted the Obama administration to sue the Pennsylvania State Police. This lawsuit is obviously demanded by the feminists, because their ideology is that if women cannot do as well as men on a fitness test for a job, it must be caused by discrimination, so use of the test must stop.
The Pennsylvania police fitness test resulted in 94 percent of the men passing and 71 percent of females passing. The feminists want Pennsylvania to ignore the fact that the job of a state trooper can require real physical strength and endurance beyond the capabilities of many women, and difficult and dangerous physical challenges, such as having to pull a victim out of a car that is on fire.
Last year, a Pennsylvania state trooper helped catch a suspect escaping in a tractor trailer by hanging on to the truck cabin's grab bar with one hand while it continued to drive down the highway. The suspect then crashed the truck and had to be pursued on foot as he fled into the woods. It's obvious that a man's physical skills were very useful. more >>
