On Gaza, Obama Contradicts Himself

On Gaza, Obama Contradicts Himself

(John Hinderaker) This morning President Obama commented on both Gaza and the shooting down of the Malaysian airplane; you can read his remarks here . On Gaza, the President began with this: I want to note that Secretary Kerry has departed for the Middle East. As I’ve said many times, Israel has a right to defend itself against rocket and tunnel attacks from Hamas. And as a result of its operations, Israel has already done significant damage to Hamas’s terrorist infrastructure in Gaza. That is correct. And in order to do more damage to Hamas’s terrorist infrastructure in Gaza, Israel…

“In a war for our home”

“In a war for our home”

(Scott Johnson) Times of Israel editor David Horovitz writes from Jerusalem this morning that this is his best effort to explain the Israel-Hamas war: “Hushed, determined Israel ‘in a war for our home’” (the internal quote is from Prime Minister Netanyahu’s press conference last night).

The Morals of the Welfare State

But he’s not entirely wrong to raise the issue of whether dependency doesn’t eventually corrupt the recipients. There’s a fascinating short piece in The Economist this week about how socialism causes higher levels of lying among people who live under socialist rule.?

Borderline personalities

(Scott Johnson) The 1969 movie Z by Costa-Gavras depicts the assassination of a popular Greek politician at a campaign rally and the investigation that followed it. The investigating magistrate serially interrogates buffoonish military officers who describe the assassin jumping out of the crowd, “lithe and fierce, like a tiger.” The identical description provided by each of the officers is a key to the unravelling of the assassination conspiracy in which they were participants. At…

The most important reason the left’s “War on Coal” is wrong

The most important reason the left’s “War on Coal” is wrong

Energy Matters takes a look at the progress of the green energy renewables that were supposed to be saving the day and justifying the “war on coal”: “So while we can expect that hydro will continue to provide most of the energy generated by renewables for some time to come it isn’t likely to contribute to decarbonizing global energy generation any more than it already has. If decarbonization is to be achieved …
