    July 28, 2012Pelosi: Republican Jews 'Being Exploited' Daniel Halper In an interview, House minority leader Nancy Pelosi said that she believes Republican Jews are "being exploited," but she was sure to add, "And they're smart people." Pelosi made the comments in response to whether Jewish voters would support President Barack Obama in the presidential election later this year. "I think [Obama] will" win the Jewish vote, Pelosi said, when pressed on the subject. "I think that he will, because the fact is when the facts get out. You know, as many of the Republicans are using Israel as an excuse,...

    A Slice alert today as the Christian Post reports this morning that Rick Warren, Leith Anderson, the head of the National Association of Evangelicals, Bill Hybels and other evangelicals have signed a document urging Muslims to “love God” together with them and to find peace between the two religions. This is where it has all been heading, folks. You’ve been warned for a long time now that this new spirituality is coming. Here’s a quote from the article: Christian leaders urged for an interfaith dialogue that moves beyond “polite” ecumenical talks between selected leaders. Instead, leaders of both faiths should...

    Megapastor Rick Warren's Damascus Road experience (Megapastor Rick Warren admits he's in CFR) Posted: November 20, 200 1:00 a.m. Eastern WASHINGTON – Rick Warren, the superstar mega-church pastor and bestselling author of ''The Purpose Driven Life,'' had a Damascus Road experience last week – and like Saul of Tarsus, one of the after-effects appears to be blindness. Warren went to Syria and could find no persecution of Christians. He could find no persecution of Jews. He could find no evidence of extremism. He could find no evidence of the sponsorship of terrorism. Despite the temporary loss of vision that prevented...
  • What Charles Duelfer Missed

    It pains me to be hard on Charles Duelfer. A smart and dedicated civil servant with vast experience in Iraq, he at least had an understandable reason for wrapping up his investigation into Iraq’s WMD programs: Osama bin Laden’s man in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, was trying to blow him up. Dr. Duelfer told London’s Independent in April of this year that a car bomb set by Zarqawi’s men “tried to get me and my follow car. Two of my guards were killed and one was badly wounded. My hearing's not been right since." This was the unofficial reason that...

    CAIRO – Sen. John Kerry has met in Cairo with members of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamist group that's set to dominate the new parliament. In a statement, the Muslim Brotherhood says three of its top officials attended the meeting with the Massachusetts Democrat, who was accompanied by U.S. Ambassador Anne Patterson. Brotherhood officials vowed to respect civil rights and international treaties that have been signed in the past. That assurance could be an attempt to calm fears that the group may try to re-examine Egypt's peace treaty with Israel.
  • House silent on captured British sailors

    By ANNE FLAHERTY, Associated Press Writer 11 minutes ago Members of the House left Washington on Friday for their two-week spring break without weighing in on the international crisis tormenting the nation's closest ally: the capture of 15 British sailors and marines by Iran. The omission by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (news, bio, voting record), D-Calif., is being noted by some Republicans, who say they should have gotten the chance to join the Senate in denouncing Tehran's bold actions. "I am very disappointed that the speaker chose not to act," said Rep. Charles Dent (news, bio, voting record), R-Pa. "I...

    Top Democrats sought to tamp down on Wednesday any speculation that Rep. Tom Lantos — or possibly House Speaker Nancy Pelosi — may be traveling to Iran, a day after revealing their willingness to travel there. "No, the speaker has no intentions of going to Iran," Pelosi spokesman Nadeam Elshami said Wednesday afternoon in a telephone interview with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid also confirmed Wednesday that he is not going to Iran, although he didn't discount others who may make such plans. Reid pointed to the Iraq Study Group's recommendation that the United States begin discussions — at...

    If the voting public was waiting to see Speaker Pelosi in action, their wait is over. Pelosi's Kissingerian shuttle diplomacy adroitly displayed Pelosi's absolute naivete in diplomacy, foreign policy and statesmen, er, stateswomanship. In a week's time, Madame Speaker demonstrated to the American public how shallow, uninformed and dangerous she is. The Speaker's foibles didn't begin on this tour of nations debacle. Pelosi has been stumbling right out of the gate. Even before all the votes were counted after the November elections and it was apparent the Dems would take control of congress, Pelosi over-reached and tried to install her...

    Congressman Tom Lantos, who is a member of the delegation that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi led to Syria, put the mission clearly when he said: "We have an alternative, Democratic foreign policy." Democrats can have any foreign policy they want - if and when they are elected to the White House. Until Ms. Pelosi came along, it was understood by all that we had only one president at a time and - like him or not - he alone had the constitutional authority to speak for this country to foreign nations, especially in wartime. All that Ms. Pelosi's trip can...

  • Memo Warned Pelosi ( Don't go to Syria )

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi traveled to Syria in 2007 despite a stern confidential memo from the Bush administration warning her she would be used by the renegade regime as a propaganda prop. Today, Republicans say the trip was worthless, muddled Washington's message to terrorist-supporting Damascus and did nothing to change President Bashar Assad's support of U.S. adversaries Hizballah, Hamas and Iran. The March 2007 memo came from the Pentagon unsolicited to Pelosi's national security adviser and was unearthed this month by a Washington watchdog group. The speaker disregarded the memo, traveled to Syria and met for three hours with dictator...

    Democrats took Congress last fall in part by opposing the war in Iraq, but it is becoming clear that they view their election as a mandate for something far more ambitious--to wit, promoting and executing their own foreign policy, albeit without the detail of a Presidential election.Their intentions were made plain this week with two remarkable acts by their House and Senate leaders. Majority Leader Harry Reid endorsed Senator Russ Feingold's proposal to withdraw from Iraq immediately, cutting off funds entirely within a year. He promised a vote soon, as part of what the Washington Post reported would also be...

    Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry came to the strong defense of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday for her trip to the Mideast, saying in San Francisco that a high-profile critic of the trip, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, has little credibility on the issue. Romney's "knowledge of foreign affairs extends to briefing papers -- not experience,'' Kerry said of the former Massachusetts governor. "I'd rather have Nancy Pelosi's input than his."

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is signaling she doesn't plan to stay in that diminished job very long. The top House Democrat and 70-year-old former Speaker suggested Thursday night she has no goal short of winning the chamber back for her party. "We are in a little bit of a sparse mode right now. I didn't realize we would be," Pelosi told CNN's John King, who noted her "sparsely decorated" new office. "I've had other work to do than to [laughter] … because I don't plan to stay here that long." Pelosi moved out of the Speaker's office and...

    Despite Concilliatory Talk, Tension Remains Over Criticism of PelosiWashington - Israeli officials and Democratic lawmakers are working to mend fences after the fallout between Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi following Pelosi’s visit to Damascus. But Democrats are still angry about what they see as Olmert’s desperate attempts to align himself with President Bush even if it means wading into American political controversies. The latest flap erupted two weeks ago, after Olmert’s office released a statement — based on partial reports from a press conference that Pelosi had held in Damascus — suggesting she had done a...

    Yup, I knew he would take the opposite side of Rush. He said that there was nothing wrong with her trip to Syria & it was "Bold" “Takes a Liberal do that he said” move. The problem Savage is that she is second in line to the Presidency & she sponsored a bill to Surrender Iraq to Iran. He knows that. Last time (Except if we invade Iran) that I will listen to his show This is even lower than when he was kissing up to Senator Schumer last Summer.

    "We came in friendship, hope, and determined that the road to Damascus is a road to peace," Speaker Nancy Pelosi declared after her visit to Syria and her meeting with its hereditary dictator Bashir Assad last week. "We expressed our interest in using our good offices in promoting peace between Israel and Syria." The woman second in line for the presidency (after Vice President Dick Cheney) seemed to believe she was on a Henry Kissinger-like shuttle diplomacy mission from Jerusalem to Damascus. But Henry Kissinger she ain't. Pelosi said she was delivering a message from Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert...

    Why is Iran announcing the release of the British soldiers ? Why now ? Last Sunday, Iran told the AEIA that it would not let the UN inspector see some parts of the iranian nuke programs. Yesterday, the AEIA claimed that Iran had multiplied its current capability by 3 since the hostage crisis began. Iran tried to take US hostages on January 20, 2007 in Kerbala, Iraq. The mission failed, and the Revolution Guards slaughtered 5 GI'S. Iran hoped to make pressure on America, and is still hoping that America won't bomb the country when Iran will expell the UN...
