That’s what President Barack Obama’s and Secretary of State John Kerry’s favorite peacemaker is saying about the Palestinian knife and gun attacks against Jewish citizens currently going on in Jerusalem.
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas was talking about Palestinian blood spilled as Israeli police and soldiers defended those citizens; he had not a word about the Jewish blood shed—that’s beneath his notice. Jews, after all, in Abbas’ terrorist mind, are but “barbaric monkeys” and “wretched pigs.” Abbas went on:
This is pure blood, clean blood, blood on its way to Allah. With the help of Allah, every martyr will be in heaven, and every wounded will get his reward.

President Obama on Friday stood by his administration’s approach to the unrest in Israel, again urging both sides to “tamp down rhetoric” fueling the violence[.]
Because when the victim demurs from being attacked, he’s feeding the violence. Sure.
Because there’s an essential moral equivalence between the terrorist and his victim when the two are on a national or quasi-national level. That’s the Progressive position.
University of Pennsylvania Religious Studies Professor Anthea Butler (Religious Studies, yet) says Republican Presidential candidate Dr Ben Carson is a coon.
Carson committed the crime of saying some things should be left to the people involved with the things to decide. On the recent controversy over the Confederate flag, he said,
Swastikas are a symbol of hate for some people too…and yet they still exist in our museums and places like that,” Carson said during an event with Richard Petty in North Carolina last Monday. “If it’s a majority of people in that area who want it to fly, I certainly wouldn’t take it down.
Plainly, though, as this image (via the StarTribune) from the Black Lives Matter Die-In which the BLM movement staged at Minneapolis, MN’s Twin Cities Marathon clearly demonstrate, only black lives matter. Notice: in this BLM demonstration, white guys are dead. Black lives are thriving and enjoying the scenery.
Or it’s a satire on the whole BLM bigotry foolishness, and BLM got punked.
h/t Power Line
The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, an arm of our front-line Department of Homeland Security, has let slip that the Obama administration, under the guise of DHS, has let into the United States over 1,500 persons with known terrorist ties. Over half provided material support to a multiplicity of terrorist or reputed terrorist organizations, and some 200 of these to terrorist groups so designated by our government.
Jeh Johnson, DHS Secretary, claims these folks provided that material support “under duress.” How would he know the claims of duress are valid? Via his much touted personal interview vetting?
The House recently passed the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act which requires that babies who survive an abortion attempt are to be cared for as though they’d been born more normally. The Act opens with these two paragraphs:
Sec. 2. Findings
Congress finds as follows:
(1) If an abortion results in the live birth of an infant, the infant is a legal person for all purposes under the laws of the United States, and entitled to all the protections of such laws.

Or so said President Barack Obama:
The future of Syria must be determined by its people, but President Bashar al-Assad is standing in their way. For the sake of the Syrian people, the time has come for President Assad to step aside.
Now, with 200,000 of those Syrian people dead, the guy who sits in the Secretary of State’s chair, John Kerry, says, “Well, whenever.”
We’re not being doctrinaire about the specific date or time. We’re open.
He said Mr Assad doesn’t have to leave “on day one or month one or whatever.”
Forty-two Democratic Party Senators on Thursday voted to block a cloture vote on the Corker-Cardin-mandated resolution concerning President Barack Obama’s nuclear weapons agreement with Iran. A successful cloture vote would have allowed a floor vote on a resolution disapproving the agreement, forcing Obama to veto the resolution, and that would have set up a veto override fight.
These 42 Democrats were too timid to have to actually vote on the resolution, and they were too timid to have to actually vote on the resolution a second time in that veto override fight. These 42 Democrats were timid enough, too, to protect their timid President from having actually to veto something.
I should have used two accounts. One for personal, one for work-related emails. That was a mistake. I’m sorry about that. I take responsibility.
More of Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s empty words. What is Clinton actually doing about the responsibility she’s…taking…besides just talking about it?

On the subject of removing Federal funding from Planned Parenthood, there’s no shortage of bad tactics floating about.
The conservative (note: small “c” conservative) wing of the Republican Party want to shut down the Federal government until they get the President to sign a defunding bill, whether in stand-alone or as part of the Federal budget. Never mind that they have no plan whatsoever for selling the shutdown to the public, they want to have their toddler’s temper tantrum.
On the other side of the question, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R, KY) seems excessively timid even to try.
