Week of January 15, 2017

 

Kellyanne Conway Unplugged, Salena Zito, Washington Examiner

Ben Carson Doubles Down: LBGT Don’t Get ‘Extra’ Rights, Lisa Bourne, lifesite news

Davos Might Be Dead: The Financial And Politically Elite Need To Admit They’ve Been Wrong, Campbell/Kennedy, Bloomberg

Its the Hypocrisy of the Left That Astounds: When The ‘Enlightened’ Don’t Get Their Way Expect Death Threats, Michael Brown, Townhall

The Truth Behind Megyn Kelly’s NBC Deal, Michael, Wolff, Newsweek

Common Sense Commentary: Newsweek is notoriously liberal in its view and any report must be taken with a grain of salt, but in this case perhaps a liberal report is needed for insight behind the curtains of the  media. Not completely objective, but an interesting look behind the scenes at Fox News, in particular.

Christians Need To Stop Being Naive About Muslim Immigration, Wendy Wilson, The Federalist

 

Editor’s Choice


Mike Huckabee: The UN Is A Farce, Not A Force And A Palestinian State Is A Fantasy, Andrew Friedman, Breaking Israel News

Israel Must Win: Understanding the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict, How Arafat Doomed Palestinians After The Oslo Accord, And Why Israeli Concessions Never Result In Peace, Daniel Pipes

Quote: “This brings us to the key concept of my approach, which is victory, or imposing one’s will on the enemy, compelling him through loss to give up his war ambitions. Wars end, the historical record shows, not through goodwill but through defeat.”

No, The North Pole Is Not Melting: Climate Change Debunked Again, H. Sterling Burnett, The Federalist

Video: An Average Black Citizen on the Chicago Kidnap and Torture: “There is a Sickness in the Black Community,” James T. Harris, Facebook

Common Sense Commentary: Must viewing. According to a 2004 NBC poll a decade later, 7 out of 10 African Americans still believed that OJ did not kill his wife. According to a CNN poll in 2014 just over 50% of blacks believed that OJ was guilty. Just short of nine out of ten African Americans voted for Barack Obama for President twice. What a white person can’t say today without inciting a riot, an insightful African-American does. Also see, Disturbing Lessons From The Chicago Beatings, Dennis Prager, Townhall

Why The Global Anti-Israeli Sentiment? Victor Davis Hanson, Townhall

You Are The Racist – Not Me: A Jewish Settler in the West Bank Calls Out Liberal Hypocrisy and Explains the Reality, Rachel Moore, Times of Israel

Common Sense Commentary: This is a must read if you want a better understanding of the repercussions of the “Two-State Solution” and the perpetual conflict between Palestinians and Israelis, particularly as it plays out in Gaza and the West Bank.

Quote: “There is no Palestinian leadership option that will give people a voice, empower and educate women, create and build freedom for the individual. Palestinian citizens of Israel today…have access to subsidized education [and much more].”
