IDF Releases Video Proof Gaza Protesters Attacked Them

You won't see this video on ABC, CBS, MSNBC or CNN.



IDF Spokesperson's Unit reported:
May 31, 2010 — Early this morning, IDF Naval Forces boarded six ships attempting to break the maritime closure of the Gaza Strip. This happened after numerous warnings from Israel and the Israeli Navy that were issued prior to the action. The Israel Navy requested the ships to redirect toward Ashdod where they would be able to unload their aid supplies which would then be transferred over land after undergoing security inspections.

During the boarding of the ships, the demonstrators onboard attacked the IDF Naval personnel with live fire and light weaponry including knives and clubs. Additionally one of the weapons used was grabbed from an IDF soldier. The demonstrators had clearly prepared their weapons in advance for this specific purpose.

As a result of this life-threatening and violent activity, naval forces employed riot dispersal means, as well as live fire.

According to initial reports, these events resulted in the deaths of nine demonstrators and seven naval personnel were injured, some from gunfire and some from various other weapons. Two of the soldiers are moderately wounded and the remainder sustained light injuries. All of the injured, Israelis and foreigners have been evacuated by helicopter to hospitals in Israel.
Reports from IDF forces on the scene are that it seems as if part of the participants onboard the ships were planning to lynch the forces.

The interception of the flotilla followed numerous warnings given to the organizers of the flotilla before leaving their ports as well as while sailing towards the Gaza Strip. In these warnings, it was made clear to the organizers that they could dock in the Ashdod sea port and unload the equipment they are carrying in order to deliver it to the Gaza Strip in an orderly manner, following the appropriate security checks. Upon expressing their unwillingness to cooperate and arrive at the port, it was decided to board the ships and lead them to Ashdod.

IDF naval personnel encountered severe violence, including use of weaponry prepared in advance in order to attack and to harm them. The forces operated in adherence with operational commands and took all necessary actions in order to avoid violence, but to no avail.

Rasmussen: 50% Say Memorial Day Nation’s Most Important Holiday



The sacrifice made by those who serve or have served in the Military isn't lost on most American. 50% say Memorial Day is the nation’s most important holiday and 74% have a favorable opinion of the U.S. military.

Rasmussen

Fifty percent (50%) of Americans view Memorial Day, officially celebrated tomorrow, as one of the nation’s most important holidays, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey...

Men tend to view Memorial Day as more important than women do. Older Americans consider the holiday much more important than younger adults.

Report: Israel Storms Moonbat Pro-Palestinian Flotilla (10 Dead)


Israel warned they would not let the six-ship flotilla break their blockade of the Gaza strip. Pro-Palestinians and moonbats ignored the warning and some have paid with their lives. Reportedly, the activists planned to cause a violent confrontation.

AP reported via AOL News:
Israel said the forces encountered unexpected resistance as they boarded the vessels. Dozens of passengers and at least five Israeli soldiers were wounded in the confrontation in international waters...

There were conflicting accounts of what happened early Monday.
An Al-Jazeera reporter on one of the Turkish ships said the Israelis fired at the vessel before boarding it. The Israelis, who had declared they would not let the ships reach Gaza, said they only opened fire after being attacked by activists with sticks, knives and live fire from weapons seized from the Israeli commandos. "On board the ship we found weapons prepared in advance and used against our forces," declared Israel's deputy foreign minister, Danny Ayalon.

Obama Double-Crosses Israel At UN


Reportedly, the the US was supposed to veto a resolution dealing with nuclear
non-proliferation in the Middle East. The resolution singled out Israel, but failed to mention Iran. The Israelis see this as a slap in the face and will put more strain on already fragile US-Israeli relations. The UN vote was Friday. Sunday, we heard a report Israel was flexing it's nuclear muscle by moving nuclear armed subs to the Gulf near Iran.

Breitbart reported:
Washington's unprecedented backing for a UN resolution for a nuclear-free Middle East that singles out Israel has both angered and deeply worried the Jewish state although officials are cagey about openly criticising their biggest ally.

The resolution adopted by the United Nations on Friday calls on Israel to join the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT)...

But it was US backing for the resolution which has caused the most consternation among Israeli officials and commentators, who interpreted the move as "a resounding slap around the face" which has dealt a very public blow to Israel's long-accepted policy of nuclear ambiguity....

"In the secret talks that Netanyahu held with Obama's men... Israel was promised that the resolution would not focus on Israel and that if it did, the Americans would vote against."

BP Knew Blowout Preventer Had Safety Issues Eleven Months Before Accident


The blowout preventer and well casing was considered to be substandard quality and at risk of damage under high pressure. BP gave "special permission" for it to be installed. That has proven to be a multi-billion dollar mistake.

The NYT reported:
The documents show that in March, after several weeks of problems on the rig, BP was struggling with a loss of “well control.” And as far back as 11 months ago, it was concerned about the well casing and the blowout preventer.

On June 22, for example, BP engineers expressed concerns that the metal casing the company wanted to use might collapse under high pressure....

Though his report indicates that the company was aware of certain risks and that it made the exception, Mr. Hafle, testifying before a panel on Friday in Louisiana about the cause of the rig disaster, rejected the notion that the company had taken risks.

Bill Clinton Rips Democratic Left A New One


The left and labor unions are working to defeat two-term Democratic incumbent Senator Blanch Lincoln. It seems Lincoln may be to much to the left to win re-election in the general election this fall, but she is still too far to the right for labor unions and liberals. Bill Clinton is 'pounding' the podium in her defense.

Politico reported:

Using unusually vivid language to describe the threat against Sen. Blanche Lincoln, Clinton urged the voters who nurtured his career to resist outside forces bent on making an example out of the two-term Democratic incumbent....

He pounded the podium with Lincoln at his side, warning that national liberal and labor groups wanted to make her a “poster child” in the June 8 Senate run-off to send a message about what happens to Democrats who don’t toe the party line.

64% of Americans Cut Back Vacation Plans Due to Economy. Obama is Taking His Second Vacation in a Month.


Only 35% of ordinary Americans are planning a summer vacation this year according to a Rasmussen survey. Harsh economic conditions have forced families to cut back.

Rasmussen reported:
Just 35% of Americans plan to take a summer vacation this year, and most of those vacationers don't plan to spend as much as they have in years past, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey..

In late May 2006, 55% of Americans planned to take a summer vacation....

President Obama isn't an ordinary American. He is on his second vacation in a month. It is good to be King President.

Liberal Whoppers reported:
The Obama family will take their second vacation this month since the Gulf oil rig exploded that started the non-stop gusher. The first family will return to Chicago this weekend for a little R-&-R. Chicago Breaking News reported: The news that President Barack Obama and his family will return to Chicago for the Memorial Day weekend has triggered a guessing game. Where will they dine?

Obama Snubs Arizona Governor Jan Brewer


President Obama is so concerned about border security he is sending 1200 National Guard to the Arizona border in a political ploy to show support. Of course, they won't be armed or allowed to enforce immigration law. Obama isn't concerned enough about border security in Arizona to meet with Republican Governor Jan Brewer. Brewer requested a meeting next week when she would be in Washington to meet with other governors. President Obama is too busy hosting a concert and welcoming a soccer team.

FOX News
reported:
President Obama has turned down Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer's request to meet while she's in Washington next week as tensions mount between his administration and Arizona over the state's new law cracking down on illegal immigrants.

Brewer will be in Washington to meet with other governors. She said Friday that she had asked to meet with Obama and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano to discuss border security and immigration. But Obama's schedule "doesn't allow for a meeting" with her....

The apparent snub comes after Justice Department officials told Arizona's attorney general and aides to the governor Friday that the federal government has serious reservations about the state's new immigration law...

Unraveling the Sestak Cover Story


It is incredulous for the White House to suggest they tried to lure Rep. Joe Sestak into dropping what turned out to be a successful Senate primary bid by offering him an uncompensated position on some board most Americans never heard about. Now, we have learned he wasn't eligible for the alleged appointment anyway. Bring on the Special Prosecutor. Americans smell a cover-up.
In a little-noticed passage Friday, the New York Times reported that Rep. Joe Sestak was not eligible for a place on the President’s Intelligence Advisory Board, the job he was reportedly offered by former President Bill Clinton. And indeed a look at the Board’s website reveals this restriction:
The Board consists of not more than 16 members appointed by the President from among individuals who are not employed by the Federal Government. Members are distinguished citizens selected from the national security, political, academic, and private sectors.

As a sitting member of Congress, Sestak was not eligible for the job. And since the White House intended for Sestak to remain in his House seat, he would not have been eligible for the board after this November’s elections, provided he was re-elected to the House.

Will Nancy Pelosi Have to Go Back To Flying On A Broomstick?


She may have to if one Congressman, Rep. Bill Posey (R-Fla), gets his wish. Pelosi has issued a House rules change requiring all members to fly coach on the taxpayers dime, but she flies on a private military jet, often with her family, while they wine and dine on the taxpayers dime.
Judicial Watch has received documents under Freedom of Information Act about Nancy Pelosi's use of military aircraft for travel. Pelosi has racked up over $2 million in expenses over the last two years. Over $100 thousand was for "in-flight services" like booze and food.

Rep. Posey is offering an amendment to the 2011 Defense Authorization bill which requires the speaker to lead by example and also fly coach.
Rep. Bill Posey, R-Fla., announced today he applauded Pelosi's new House rules-change that bans all members of Congress from flying first class on the taxpayer's dime.

And to help the speaker enforce the new rules, Posey said in an announcement, he is offering an amendment to the FY 2011 Defense Authorization bill which requires the speaker to lead by example and also fly coach. The move, he said, would spare taxpayers the $28,000 it costs per flight for her personal military aircraft when she travels back and forth to her home in San Francisco....

Obama goes to Gulf, examines tar ball and heads out on vacation.



President Obama promised the residents of the Gulf Coast they wouldn't face this crisis alone.
"I'm here to tell you that you are not alone," he said. "You will not be abandoned, and you will not be left behind."

Then, he promptly left them alone and went to Chicago on vacation.

BP has received much well deserved criticism for this spill, so they bused in 400 temporary workers to "spruce" the place up for Obama's visit. Click the image below to watch a video at Real Clear Politics.

CBO Director Dr. Douglas Elmendorf destroys Obamacare claims


Keith Hennessey has a great post (with graphs) about the CBO Director's destruction of President Obama's claim to bend the health care cost curve down and reduce the deficit. The Graphs are from a presentation by CBO Director Dr. Douglas Elmendorf. In the above graph, the light blue line represents new spending on health care mandated by Obamacare.

Among the findings of the presentation are:
1. those with health insurance will have less money available for other needs;
2. it will be harder for the uninsured to buy insurance; and
3. government spending on Medicare and Medicaid will break federal and state budgets.

Obama Decides on Sestak Story: "Bubba" did it


The White House has decided to blame the illegal Joe Sestak job offer on former President Bill Clinton. This gives them some distance and plausible deny-ability about the actual language used. In many ways, Bill Clinton is the perfect fall guy. Obama has leverage over him because of Hillary's position as Secretary of State. Additionally, the White House claims it was an unpaid job as an adviser. This makes the illegality a gray area. Bill Clinton certainly has credibility about offering unpaid positions. He is well known for the 'unpaid' position he put Monica Lewinsky in. Bill Clinton had lunch with President Obama yesterday. Was this to finalize their story? Bill Clinton wouldn't take a hit like this for free. I wonder what Obama offered him? So far, Bill Clinton is refusing to comment. Joe Sestak is desperate to put this behind him because it has become a campaign issue. Sestak wasted no time corroborating the White House story. Obama and his advisers must think Americans are idiots if they expect us to believe Sestak could be be dissuaded from running for the Senate by an unpaid advisory position most people never knew existed. Here is the text of the White house memo (pdf).

The Plum Line reported:
Senior White House advisers asked former President Bill Clinton to talk to Joe Sestak about whether he was serious about running for Senate, and to feel out whether he’d be open to other alternatives, according to sources familiar with the situation.

But the White House maintains that the Clinton-Sestak discussions were informal...

According to the sources, White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel asked Clinton and his longtime adviser, lawyer Doug Band, to talk to Sestak about the race. It’s unclear right now whether the White House will say that Clinton was asked to suggest specific administration positions for Sestak, whether Clinton floated positions on his own, whether Clinton discussed other options not related to the adminstration [sic], or whether employment even came up at all in the talks...

Bizarre: Indian police hold pigeon under armed guard after it was caught allegedly spying for Pakistan


You just can't make stuff like this up...

AFP reported:

NEW DELHI — Indian police are holding a pigeon under armed guard after it was caught on an alleged spying mission for arch rivals and neighbours Pakistan, media reported on Friday.

The white-coloured bird was found by a local resident in India's Punjab state, which borders Pakistan, and taken to a police station 40 kilometres (25 miles) from the capital Amritsar.

The pigeon had a ring around its foot and a Pakistani phone number and address stamped on its body in red ink...

Officials have directed that no-one should be allowed to visit the pigeon, which police say may have been on a "special mission of spying".

Insanity! Obama's counter-terrorism advisor: "jihad is a holy struggle, a legitimate tenet of Islam"


Osama Bin Laden and other Islamic extremists have declared jihad on America and the West. Now President Obama's top counter-terrorism adviser has said we shouldn't describe Islamic terrorists as "Jihadists." He thinks these scum who murder in the name of Allah are victims of “political, economic and social forces...” John Brennan should be fired immediately.

The president’s top counterterrorism adviser on Wednesday called jihad a “legitimate tenet of Islam,” arguing that the term “jihadists” should not be used to describe America’s enemies.

During a speech at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, John Brennan described violent extremists as victims of “political, economic and social forces,” but said that those plotting attacks on the United States should not be described in “religious terms.”

He repeated the administration argument that the enemy is not “terrorism,”...

“Nor do we describe our enemy as ‘jihadists’ or ‘Islamists’ because jihad is a holy struggle, a legitimate tenet of Islam, meaning to purify oneself or one’s community, and there is nothing holy or legitimate or Islamic about murdering innocent men, women and children,” Brennan said...

This strategy was expected. Actually, I am surprised Obama was able to restrain himself this long. After all, this administration believes:

The gulf oil spill is a crisis that liberals can use to push support of their Cap and Tax bill. President Obama has deployed that strategy.
President Obama called the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico “heartbreaking” and said it makes the passage of climate change legislation all the more urgent this year.

“The spill in the Gulf, which is just heartbreaking, only underscores the necessity of seeking alternative fuel sources,” Obama said after declaring climate change a “threat to our way of life” and calling on Congress to pass climate change bill “this year.”...

The Mexican government is OK with President Obama's decision to send 1200 National Guard to the Arizona border as long as they only look for organized criminals. They should ignore the illegal immigrants running past them.
STATEMENT BY THE EMBASSY OF MEXICO

Washington D.C, May 25th, 2010

Regarding the Administration’s decision to send 1,200 National Guard servicemen to the US Southern border, the Government of Mexico trusts that this decision will help to channel additional US resources to enhance efforts to prevent the illegal flows of weapons and bulk cash into Mexico, which provide organized crime with its firepower and its ability to corrupt.

Additionally, the Government of Mexico expects that National Guard personnel will strengthen US operations in the fight against transnational organized crime that operates on both sides of our common border and that it will not, in accordance to its legal obligations, conduct activities directly linked to the enforcement of immigration laws.

You can’t lay this all at Obama’s door anymore than I can say,” Dodd responded.

President Obama is succeeding in redistribution of wealth

Democrat Introduces $165 Billion Union Pension Bailout Bill


In an attempt to payback their union supporters, Democrats are trying to put taxpayers on the hook for at least $165 Billion by putting the Pension Benefit Guarantee Corporation behind struggling union pensions.The final amount would be nearly unlimited depending on how long the recipients lived. Unions plan to spend well over $100 million on the 2010 midterm election.

FOX Business reported:
A Democratic senator is introducing legislation for a bailout of troubled union pension funds. If passed, the bill could put another $165 billion in liabilities on the shoulders of American taxpayers.

The bill, which would put the Pension Benefit Guarantee Corporation behind struggling pensions for union workers, is being introduced by Senator Bob Casey, (D-Pa.), who says it will save jobs and help people.

As FOX Business Network’s Gerri Willis reported Monday, these pensions are in bad shape; as of 2006, well before the market dropped and recession began, only 6% of these funds were doing well.

Although right now taxpayers could possibly be on the hook for $165 billion, the liability could essentially be unlimited because these pensions have to be paid out until the workers die.

Obama Quietly Removes Sanctions From Russian Organizations Helping Iran Develop Nukes


The Obama administration has quietly removed sanctions from three Russian organizations that have been helping Iran develop nuclear weapons. The move is thought to be aimed at getting the Russians to support additional sanctions against Iran. Ironically, the Russian organizations were being punished for failing to heed previous sanctions. The Obama administration is removing sanctions from organizations that violated sanctions in order to get more sanctions. Huh? What is the point of new sanctions if there is no penalty for violating sanctions?

The Jerusalem Post reported:
The Obama administration on Friday removed sanctions against three Russian organizations the US had previously accused of assisting Iran’s effort to develop nuclear weapons.

Penalties against a fourth Russian entity previously accused of illicit arms sales to Syria were also lifted.

The timing of the decisions, published in Friday’s Federal Register but not otherwise announced by the State Department, suggested the possibility of a link to US efforts to win Russian support for a new UN Security Council resolution expanding sanctions against Iran over its nuclear program.

Times Square Bomber Was Living In US Illegally And Police Failed To Act


This is making the Arizona immigration enforcement law look better. The Times Square bomber was living in the US illegally and police failed to act.
