Hamas hits Shifa Hospital (with playground update)

Hamas hits Shifa Hospital (with playground update)

(Scott Johnson) Applying the theses explicit and implicit in my “14 Israel-Gaza notes,” I’m going with the IDF statement that Hamas is responsible for today’s attack on Gaza’s Al-Shifa Hospital. The best account I can find at the moment is the Algemeiner’s, at which Dave Bender reports as follows: he Israeli army said it was not operating in the vicinity of Shifa Hospital in northern Gaza on Monday, where an …

Inversion Therapy for Liberals

Inversion Therapy for Liberals

(Steven Hayward) As we note here frequently—like yesterday , on the minimum wage—when it comes to economics liberals suffer from a severe case of cranial-rectal inversion. Liberalism’s latest trip to a tight dark place is over the issue of —irony alert— “inversions,” whereby American corporations buy foreign companies and “relocate” their headquarters to a foreign nation to lower their corporate income taxes.? Kind of like what rich northeasterners do when they retire and move to Florida (no personal income tax), or as any number of American companies have done by moving to Texas (lower taxes and less nonsense of every other kind). The reason for inversions is …

14 Israel-Gaza notes

14 Israel-Gaza notes

(Scott Johnson) In the spirit of David Bernstein’s “Some Israel-Gaza notes” at the Volokh Conspiracy , I would like to add my own notes summarizing points I have been making here, some of which Bernstein also makes. 1. Hamas has promoted phony casualty statistics as a propaganda tool and the media have dutifully provided the statistics every day without any reservation. The media fail to report the source of the statistics as anything other than Gaza health officials. 2. Bernstein puts …

Katie Kieffer: Message to the millenials

(Scott Johnson) My young friend Katie Kieffer is one of two beautiful and conservative Katies with books out this summer. Katie Pavlich is the author of Assault and Flattery:The Truth About the Left and Their War on Women , seeking to corral women to the conservative cause. Katie Kieffer is out with Let Me Be Clear: Barack Obama’s War on Millennials, and One Woman’s Case for Hope , seeking to corral millennials to the conservative casuse. Katie’s book has garnered the endorsement of conservatives including Karl Rove, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and Mary Kissel, among others. Katie sends along a few notes on why her …

Madeleine Albright admits colossal failure of her 2008 endorsement

Madeleine Albright admits colossal failure of her 2008 endorsement

**Written by Doug Powers Not that I’d have been tempted, but whoever Madeleine Albright endorses for president in 2016 ( ::cough:: Hillary ::cough:: ) will get extra lack of consideration now. Here’s a quote from Albright’s 2008 endorsement of Barack Obama: “I am supporting Barack Obama because I think he is a remarkable leader and exactly what we need in the 21st century,” Albright said. “He is exactly what we need because the world is a mess – that’s the diplomatic term.” Fast “forward” to 2014 — Sunday morning to be specific: ‘THE WORLD IS A MESS:’ Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright http://t.co/RQN74L7ybs — NYDN …

Managers take center stage at Cooperstown

Managers take center stage at Cooperstown

(Paul Mirengoff) The baseball Hall of Fame inducted six new members today. Among the inductees were managers Tony La Russa, Joe Torre, and Bobby Cox (the others were Frank Thomas, Greg Maddux, and Tom Glavine). One thing about inducting managers: you don’t have to worry about whether their performance was enhanced by drugs. There was a time, though, when it seemed like La Russa was managing on steroids. That time was the early 1980s when, as Barry Svrluga puts, La Russa would “splice together the final four innings of a game with six or seven pitchers.” …

Meanwhile in Ukraine

Meanwhile in Ukraine

(Paul Mirengoff) It’s not getting much attention, but Ukraine continues to make military progress against rebel separatists. The Washington Post reports that the Ukrainian military has pushed the rebels out of a series of villages and towns in the East, and now has its sites set on Horlivka, a city of about 300,000. If it succeeds in taking Horlivka, the military will be on the doorstep of Donetsk, the separatists’ power center. Already, it is blocking supplies …
