Why comedians and ‘SNL’ are shielding President Obama | New York Post

Why comedians and ‘SNL’ are shielding President Obama | New York Post: "Got that? The charter Choom Ganger, confessed eater of dog and snorter of coke. The doofus who thinks the language spoken by Austrians is “Austrian,” that you pronounce the p in “corpsman” and that ATMs are the reason why job growth is sluggish. The egomaniac who gave the queen of England an iPod loaded with his own speeches and said he was better at everything than the people who work for him. The empty suit with so little real-world knowledge that he referred to his brief stint working for an ordinary profit-seeking company as time “behind enemy lines.” The phony who tells everyone he’s from Chicago, though he didn’t live there until his 20s, and lets you know that he’s talking to people he believes to be stupid by droppin’ his g’s. The world-saving Kal-El from a distant solar system who told us he’d heal the planet and cause the oceans to stop rising. The guy who shared a middle name with one of the most hated dictators on earth."

Vacations and Vocations | National Review Online

Vacations and Vocations | National Review Online: "President Barack Obama is spending his vacation golfing on Martha’s Vineyard. Hillary Rodham Clinton is spending her vacation in the habitual Clintonian mode, making a vulgar spectacle of herself in the Hamptons. Joe Biden, not that anybody cares, is off to Grand Teton.

Senator Rand Paul, on the other hand, is spending his vacation in Guatemala, performing eye surgeries on poor children who need care."

Hamas chief: Hey, we’re not as bad as those ISIS nutcases « Hot Air

Hamas chief: Hey, we’re not as bad as those ISIS nutcases « Hot Air: "Hamas doesn’t target civilians like ISIS does, Mashaal claims, although Isikoff starts off the interview challenging that claim right off the bat. “You are firing rockets at Israeli cities, like Tel Aviv, at Haifa, at Beersheba,” Isikoff points out. “Who are you aiming for?”

Mashaal blames the crude nature of their weapons, and then begs the world for more precise artillery so that they can aim at strictly military targets. No, seriously.

Come on, man."

NYC Mayor hires old felons to “interrupt” new felons « Hot Air

NYC Mayor hires old felons to “interrupt” new felons « Hot Air: "Also less reported is that a couple of the “interrupters” in the pilot program wound up back in custody for new crimes of their own, according to a separate source. And, as West notes, participants in the program are not required to report to the police if any of the suspects have illegal guns. You know… to preserve their street cred. You don’t want to get a reputation as a snitch.

Congratulations, New York City. You overwhelmingly wanted de Blasio. And now you’ve got him. Enjoy."

Science According to Steyer | Power Line

Science According to Steyer | Power Line: "What a pitiful display! “Climate change is Real…” Yes, and it has been real for millions of years. “The planet is older than 6,000 years old.” Huh? “Seawater is salty and rising.” Yes, at the same rate it has been for thousands of years. “The moon is not made of cheese.” I believe this is an Obama line. Apparently he considers it a crushing argument. “98% of scientists agree.” Not on anthropogenic global warming, they don’t. The battle continues to rage, and the hysterics are losing.

The white lab coat with too-long sleeves is an entertaining touch, too. If this is what Steyer is buying for his $100 million, Republicans can rest easy."

In a stew over inversions - The Washington Post

In a stew over inversions - The Washington Post: "Alabama, and the Honda manufacturing states (Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Indiana and Ohio; all but Ohio are right-to-work), attracted these jobs by practicing “entrepreneurial federalism ” — tailoring tax and regulatory policies to gain competitive advantages against other states. Progressives deplore this as a “race to the bottom.” Conservatives call it a rationality competition."

My Jewish Family’s Incredible Shrinking World | TIME

My Jewish Family’s Incredible Shrinking World | TIME: "I’ve heard that I shouldn’t let a few anti-Semites keep me from traveling. But it’s not the anti-Semites who are the problem. It’s the people in these countries sitting idly by and not saying that these people canceling Jewish film festivals or writing despicable op-eds don’t speak for them. The silence is what is so troubling. The optimist in me hopes things change and that the world opens up to us again. A lot would need to change for that to happen. I wonder if my kids will see Edinburgh or Caracas first."
