    French police on Wednesday in their raid of an apartment in north Paris fired no less than 5,000 bullets, leading many in Israel to question the double standard of the West demanding Israel show "restraint" in the face of terror Reportedly 110 officers took part in the raid on an apartment in the suburb of St. Denis, where the Islamic State (ISIS) mastermind of Saturday's lethal attacks, Abdelhamid Abaaoud, was believed to be hiding out. Paris Prosecutor Francois Molins revealed that police pumped 5,000 rounds of ammo into the apartment in a shootout with terrorists, and likewise chucked in grenades,...

    The United States on Monday night condemned the rocket fire by Hamas against Israel. Secretary of State John Kerry spoke to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu Monday night in the wake of the heavy rocket fire on Israel. Kerry asked Netanyahu to “act with restraint” in his response to Hamas' pounding of southern Israel. With that, State Department spokesperson Jean Psaki said that the US supported Israel's right to defend itself. “We condemn the firing of missiles at Israel and support Israel's right to defend itself.” Kerry, she said, had spoken to Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and asked...

    The United States on Wednesday called on both Israel and the Palestinian Arabs to "show restraint" as Israel tightened their grip on Hamas hunting for three kidnapped teenagers, AFP reports. "We recognize this is an incredibly sensitive and difficult circumstance on the ground, and we feel all sides should exercise restraint," State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters. Israeli troops have pressed their biggest arrest operation in years, imposing a tight lockdown on huge swathes of Judea and Samaria in the hunt for the three boys kidnapped six days ago. So far, there has been no claim of responsibility for...

    This is pretty disturbing. I, personally, have dealt with anxiety and panic attacks, or PTSD (because of a lot of family trauma). This guy is clearly exhibiting the symptoms. Do I know his situation? No. Do I believe in waterboarding of terrorists trying to destroy our country? Absolutely. So, let's get THAT out of the way. I will expect to get flamed. That's OK. PTSD is a misunderstood condition. Been through a lot in my life. Getting stronger every day! :-) Can't imagine what a soldier may go though.

    About a week ago, I had another lesson in liberal civility. I was pulling into the parking lot of a burger-joint when an agitated young man drove up next to me. He rolled down his window, as I did. I thought I might have cut him off in traffic and prepared to apologize. The first words out of his mouth were: “Are you a retard?” This is known as a rhetorical question. I was tempted to answer, “No, but I am still beating my wife.” The graduate of The Charlie Sheen School of Refinement was incensed by one of my...

    WASHINGTON – Eager to show some budget toughness, President Barack Obama will use his State of the Union address to call for a five-year freeze on all discretionary government spending outside of national security, the White House said Tuesday. The move is almost identical to the freeze Obama called for in his address to the nation last year at this time — his current proposal would cover five years, not three years — and ultimately it may have little effect. Congress decides the budget on its own terms, and Obama has even less sway than he did in his first...

    As we all know, the President of the United States just signed a sweeping health care overhaul bill. Despite the polling clearly showing the majority of the public did not favor this bill, the democratic majority passed the bill with a slide of hand. Tax payers who were both for and against the bill hit the streets letting their voices be heard. Regardless of the poll numbers, the bill passed, and the majority party drank champagne. As we all heard today, politicians who voted for this bill were threatened with physical violence. Some of their offices were vandalized. Tensions are...

    Centuries ago, historians came up with a classic theory to explain the rise and decline of nations. The theory was that great nations start out tough-minded and energetic. Toughness and energy lead to wealth and power. Wealth and power lead to affluence and luxury. Affluence and luxury lead to decadence, corruption and decline... Yet despite its amazing wealth, the United States has generally remained immune to this cycle...That’s because despite the country’s notorious materialism, there has always been a countervailing stream of sound economic values.

    THE debate over the just-released Jus tice Department memorandums on interrogation techniques ended as soon as they were dubbed the "torture memos." Forevermore, they will be remembered as the legal lowlights of a "dark and painful chapter in our history," as President Obama put it. Rightly considered, the memos should be a source of pride. They represent a nation of laws struggling to defend itself against a savage, lawless enemy while adhering to its legal commitments and norms. Most societies throughout human history wouldn't have bothered. The memos cite conduct that is indisputably torture from a court case involving Serbs...
