Explaining the Israeli Left
by Caroline Glick
 The Shock Heard Round the World 
The British declared independence from the 28-nation European Union Thursday in a surprise outcome to the referendum known as "Brexit." Prime Minister David Cameron, who supported the "Remain" side but took a gamble in calling for a referendum, made his own Brexit. He announced his resignation saying, "The country requires fresh leadership." Global markets collapsed and the British pound fell to a 30-year low.
          There are now many questions. How long until markets recover? How will Great Britain's fifth-largest-in-the-world economy fare on its own? How will this affect the EU, now that Germany is clearly the strongest nation remaining? Will Scotland hold another referendum on leaving the UK two years after the last one failed? That referendum failed largely because the Scots wanted to remain in the EU. How will the U.S. relationship with Britain change? After all, Barack nObama pushed for the UK to remain in the EU and even threated our best ally with back-of-the-queue status on trade if they left.
          A couple of observations. After a pro-Remain member of Parliament was politically murdered last week, it appeared Remain would prevail. But Leave pulled away in what is perhaps a sign that voters don't always share politically incorrect sentiments with pollsters. They said one thing and then voted according to what they really thought — and that was to tell the EU and its leftist bureaucrat-run "utopia" where to go.
          As the Heritage Foundation's Nile Gardiner put it, "The vote for Brexit is a vote for sovereignty and self-determination. Britain will no longer be subject to European legislation, with Britain's Parliament retaking control. British judges will no longer be overruled by the European Court of Justice, and British businesses will be liberated from mountains of EU regulations, which have undermined economic liberty." How might that affect our own election this year?
          Indeed, that brings us to the other thought: Let's hope nObama does for liar-Hilly Clinton what he did for the Remain vote. There is a powerful and growing sentiment against centralized control, whether it be among our British cousins or our fellow Americans. Elites beware.

 Nearly Half of Released Criminal Aliens 
 Became Repeat Offenders  Say what? Another agency caught duping Americans? Shocking, we know, but that's standard procedure under this administration. According to a new report from the Federation for American Immigration Reform, "Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) records ... show that the agency grossly misrepresented — by almost tenfold — the number of subsequent offenses committed by criminal aliens it released from custody onto the streets in FY 2014."
          This obviously wasn't just some rounding error. ICE claims that it decided to release 30,588 criminal aliens in FY 2014, of which 1,423 became repeat offenders. That's bad enough, but not nearly as bad as the actual number of repeat offenders — 13,288. Put another way, a whopping 43% of released criminals recommitted crimes. Even worse, says FAIR, "It is important to note that not all criminal charges result in convictions. Thus, the number of offenses committed by criminal aliens ICE turned loose is likely significantly greater." Indeed, and how many other criminals simply haven't been caught yet?
          These weren't just aliens with petty offenses, either. FAIR says, "The list of convictions for offenses committed by criminals ICE did not deem worthy of deportation in FY 2014 includes: homicide, kidnapping, assault, sexual assault, drunk driving, and other offenses."
          When you hear stories like this, you can at least begin to understand the appeal of a biometric exit program, which the Department of Homeland Security is making plans to enact as a means of gathering data on foreigners with expired visas who remain in the United States. The merits are iffy, and the media once ridiculed a similar idea offered by a certain former Republican presidential candidate, but it's easy to see why so many Americans are sick of being lied to, and why Donald Trump's simple and repetitive promise to build a wall is so powerful. 
 A Texas-Sized VA Scandal 
The increasingly frivolous Department of Veterans Affairs is closer than ever to becoming perennially incapable of getting its ducks in a row. The latest example of negligence comes from an "anonymous allegation" submitted to the VA Office of Inspector General concerning the Michael E. DeBakey Veterans Affairs Medical Center, located in Houston, Texas. In a June 20 report, the IG probe exposed more of the same old story: "We substantiated that two previous scheduling supervisors and a current director of two CBOCs [Community Based Outpatient Clinics] instructed staff to incorrectly record cancellations as canceled by the patient [emphasis added.]"
          The report says that "223 appointments" were "incorrectly recorded as patient cancellations during the July 2014 through June 2015 time frame." Additionally, "Of the 223 appointment cancellations, staff rescheduled 94 appointments (42 percent) beyond 30 days. For these 94 appointments, veterans encountered an average 81-day wait, which was 78 days longer than shown in the electronic scheduling system. We found that wait times were understated about 66 days for 50 appointments (22 percent) when they were initially scheduled."
          What was it Barack nObama once said? "We're not going to stop working to make sure that they get the care, the benefits and the opportunities that they've earned and they deserve. I said we wouldn't tolerate misconduct, and we will not. I said that we have to do better, and we will." That was in May 2014 — more than two years ago. What's his excuse now?
          Add to this the possibility that disgraced former VA Director Sharon Helman could be rehired, and the situation becomes downright surreal. But even if she doesn't get her job back, why should we expect things to get better when the current leadership compares the VA experience to an amusement park ride  -The Patriot Post



Dirty liar-Hilly, Guilty of Treason and Murder, Ill and Ineligible to Run for President
by Tony Elliott
{freedomoutpost.com} ~ A liar-Hilly Clinton Administration would essentially be the nObama Administration on steroids when it comes to lying, cheating, backdoor corruption, murder, support of radical Islam, treason, and the overall desire to institute a Nazi agenda in America... From her early days of being fired from the Watergate Committee in 1974, to her lying and unethical behavior over her latest Presidential campaign, which shows voter fraud, voter manipulation, and suppression of votes in almost every state since the beginning of the primaries. liar-Hilly Clinton has managed to be the first woman running for President, not actually the first woman, since Victoria Woodhull ran for President in 1872, but the first time in US history, anyone has ever run for President who should be in prison instead. liar-Hilly and nObama are solely responsible for the deaths of the US Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, Information Officer Sean Smith, and two CIA operatives Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods during the Benghazi attack in Libya on 9/11/2012. liar-Hilly and nObama knew ahead of time the attack was going to take place, did nothing to stop it or rescue endangered Americans, all due to the nObama Administration's gun running effort in supplying arms to terrorist factions fighting the Assad government in Syria...  http://freedomoutpost.com/dirty-hillary-guilty-of-treason-and-murder-ill-and-ineligible-to-run-for-president/
Watson – Brexit War For Freedom Just Beginning, Expect Globalist Oligarchy Dirty Tricks
by Rick Wells
{rickwells.us} ~ While taking a moment to bask in the magnitude of what just happened in Britain, Paul Joseph Watson expects a full assault from the elites attempting to cling to their seats on the gravy train... He acknowledges that “Brexit represents nothing less than a stunning populist revolt and a complete rejection of the political establishment, after months of endless fear-mongering and propaganda, after months of trying to shame us into voting remain, politicians, celebrities, economists, bankers. You all failed spectacularly.” “Brexit is also a devastating example,” says Watson, “of how the deceitful media is losing its power to control the narrative. But don’t expect the elite to take this lying down. Here’s what the political class will do in response. They’ll blame the next ISIS terror attack in Europe on the instability caused by Brexit. As always it will have nothing whatsoever to do with Islam.” He continues, “They’ll blame the popping of the financial bubble that’s been totally inevitable for years anyway on Brexit. They’ll then try to offer Britain a new deal to stay in the EU or they’ll just make us vote again in another referendum until they get the result they want; like they did in France, Ireland and the Netherlands...  http://rickwells.us/watson-brexit-war-beginning-expect-globalist-oligarchy-dirty-tricks/
Judge Jeanine – Why Brexit Will Repeat Here
In USA With Donald Trump
by Rick Wells
{rickwells.us} ~ In her opening statement, Judge Jeanine says, “What happened in England is going to happen again; next stop the United States, next President Donald J. Trump... What happened in the UK this week is just the beginning. The world is changing and all you elite establishment, ruling class, condescending Washington big wigs who think you know better than ordinary Americans are out. Start packing; your days are numbered.” She points out that worldwide the middle class of what should be the free world are tired of being dictated to by the elites and overrun by illegals as our economies falter. It happened in the UK and she says, “Similarly, Americans fed up with this ‘we are the world’ song and dance will catapult Donald Trump to the White House. “...
Explosive new twist in Idaho sex assault case: nObama-appointed prosecutor threatens community
by Pamela Geller
{pamelageller.com} ~ “The nObama-appointed U.S. attorney for Idaho has taken the highly unusual step of intervening in a local criminal case involving an alleged sexual assault by juvenile Muslim migrants... and threatened the community and media with federal prosecution if they ‘spread false information or inflammatory statements about the perpetrators.'” Have you ever heard of a federal prosecutor in any other sexual assault case threatening the public on behalf of the perpetrators? This only makes it clear that everything I said here is true: “Clearly there is a coverup going on, intended to keep Americans ignorant and complacent about the dangers of the migrant influx.” ...
Defending Your Values in a Sea of
The Absurd, full text
by chrisskates
{chrisskates.com} ~  It’s kind of hard to catch your breath isn’t it? If you’re a Christian in this country, working hard, trying to maintain a Christian home, and show love, kindness and God’s grace to your fellow man, then over these past weeks you’ve not been allowed a moment of respite... That’s because the left never rests, never stops coming, never seems to tire of chipping away at the foundations of the west. But since the left bases everything they believe on the premise that everything we see in the universe originated from nothing (ex-nhilio) then they can’t help themselves. Since the foundation of their belief system is based on the absurd notion that everything sprang from nothing, then their arguments on more specific matters must always devolve into the absurd. This has always been the case, the reason things seem to be so much more topsy turvy these days is because now the left is in charge. The left now owns the courts, the executive branch, the universities, and the most of the culture...  http://chrisskates.com/defending-your-values-in-a-sea-of-the-absurd-full-text/
DHS plan to ban 'offensive' terms won't stop terrorism
by Paul Bremmer
{wnd.com} ~ Faced with a persistent worldwide terror threat, the Department of Homeland Security may ban “religiously charged” Islamic terms such as “jihad” and “Shariah” from its lexicon to avoid offending Muslims... Such a move would be counterproductive, according to former DHS officer Philip Haney. “That would be like a doctor diagnosing an ailment that you have and never actually naming what the disease is or what the problem is,” Haney told WND in an interview. “That doesn’t do anyone any good, does it?” Haney, who recounts his experiences as a DHS whistleblower in his new book “See Something, Say Nothing: A Homeland Security Officer Exposes the Government’s Submission to Jihad,” said the government does a disservice to the American people when it refuses to use the word “Shariahh.” He said it’s wrong to assume “Shariah” is a benign term with no bearing on the threats we face; in reality, Shariah is the primary gravitational force around which all Islamic terrorism revolves...  http://www.wnd.com/2016/06/dhs-plan-to-ban-offensive-terms-wont-stop-terrorism/#!
12 Million Democrats voted in
the Republican Primaries
by Michael Harrington
{redstate.com} ~ After a lot of work I have finished my math calculations. A simple effort will show that from 2000 to 2008 there was a change in Primary votes of 10-12 million. Ten million more Republicans and 12 million less Democrats... But this is child's play. Getting deeper, examining States with close polling prior to the registration requirements, States with a clear winner in polls prior to registration change requirements, and you can set patterns. Using 2000 and 2008 as baselines, the conclusion was staggering. Trump only got about 3.3 million Republican Votes. The rest are Democrats, approximately 12 million of them. I also found via my studies by going back to 1992 that this behavior is not new, in fact even when there is a tight contest about 5% will "strategically vote" in the Republican Party primary/caucus. Even more disturbing is that it appears that there may be even a 5% not normally detectable, of Republicans who only vote Democrat. Aka plants that we always knew existed... http://www.redstate.com/diary/creinstein/2016/06/25/12-million-democrats-voted-republican-primaries/?utm_source=rsmorningbriefing&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=nl
Donald Trump Wins Legal Battle in University Case
by Joel B. Pollak
{breitbart.com} ~ Donald Trump won a key legal battle last week when a federal district court in California partially decertified a class action lawsuit against Trump and the now-defunct Trump University, which once offered real estate classes... The lawsuit is one of several against Trump regarding the university, and claims that students were lured into the classes with false advertising, “like an infomercial,” with no real hope of recouping their educational investment. The plaintiffs in the case included six former students from California, Missouri, Florida, and New York. The court allowed the suit to proceed on the claim of liability. However, it found that there was no common claim for damages. The students wanted full refunds, but Trump’s legal team argued, and the court agreed, that some representatives of the class had admitted receiving at least some value from the courses. The result is that each plaintiff would have to proceed with separate legal actions to recover damages, which will be prohibitive for most...
nObama Administration Continues to
Dodge Benghazi Inquiries
by Susan Wright
{politico.com} ~ Four years past and four American lives lost, still with no answers and very little concern (beyond saving his legacy) from the nObama administration... The White House and the House Select Committee on Benghazi are at a stand-off over whether President Barack nObama should answer a series of questions about the 2012 terrorist attack in Libya that left four Americans dead. Neil Eggleston, counsel to the president, blasted the committee for sending the president a list of questions about the attack — an inquiry the administration deemed inappropriate and a partisan attempt to frame the White House as uncooperative. Eggleston has encouraged nObama not to answer the committee’s questions “because of the implications of his response on the constitutional separation of powers,” according to a letter sent Saturday to Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) and obtained by POLITICO...
HYPOCRISY: Gun Owners Among Those Who
Participated In Democratic Sit-In
by Kimberly Ross
{redstate.com} ~ This week certainly had its fair share of political drama, and none was so pathetic as the Great Democratic House Sit-In of 2016... Lawmakers sat on the House floor like Millennials searching for a safe space...in the name of what? Well, nothing, really. Zero was accomplished during their 26-hour "demonstration". Nonetheless, we are supposed to think they are the brave ones. Guns are evil, or didn't you know? Gun owners buy guns like the AR-15 to "do bad things", as Senator Jean Shaheen asserted. But what's interesting about the epic sit-in is that the participants who stomped their feet this week consisted of more than two dozen gun owners.

Explaining the Israeli Left
by Caroline Glick
{truthrevolt.org} ~ Over the past few days, two incidents occurred which together, tell us the story of the Israeli Left.

Monday night, Channel 10 revealed that the Labor Party has no regard for Israel’s national interests.

Channel 10 disclosed that ahead of the 2015 Knesset elections, Labor – and now Zionist Union – leader MK Yitzhak Herzog engaged in private negotiations with PLO chief and Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas. During the course of their meetings, Herzog signed a letter, which he sent to Abbas.
Among other things, in the letter Herzog pledged that a government under his leadership will withdraw from all of Judea and Samaria, partition Jerusalem, surrender Israel’s security control over the Jordan Valley, permit the immigration of Palestinian “refugees” into the post-withdrawal rump Jewish state, and place Israel’s counterterror operations under the control of a joint Israeli-Jordanian-Palestinian security committee.

Abbas for his part, agreed to a “symbolic” Israeli security presence in the Jordan Valley.

Whether Abbas agreed to Herzog’s offer is unclear.

But it is also unimportant.

Herzog, as opposition leader, has no authority to negotiate on behalf of Israel. And Abbas knows it. So even if he did agree to Herzog’s terms, his agreement is meaningless.

Abbas can agree to whatever he wants in the framework of pretend negotiations with pretend Israeli leaders. None of his statements bind him.

Herzog didn’t deny the report. Rather he said he held his private talks with the PLO chief in an effort to prevent a new Palestinian terror wave. In other words, Herzog surrendered Jerusalem, and signed the eviction notices of hundreds of thousands of law abiding Israeli citizens to appease Abbas, lest he set off a new terror war against Israel.

Herzog added ruefully, that his efforts failed.

Again, translated into normal language, Herzog admitted that Abbas went ahead and issued the kill orders against Israelis, despite Herzog’s efforts to forestall them by making an unauthorized offer to give Jerusalem to a murderer.

Abbas hasn’t survived as the unelected leader of a terrorist group and of the PA for the past 12 years because he’s stupid. Abbas knows what he is doing when he “negotiates” with the likes of Herzog. He’s been running so-called “Track 2” negotiations with Herzog and his colleagues and predecessors on the Left for more than twenty years.

Abbas has repeatedly engaged in phony negotiations with Herzog and his ilk because it serves his interest to do so.

Israeli leftists are critical partners in the PLO’s political war against Israel.

The goal of the PLO’s political war is to criminalize the Jewish state by castigating it as the “occupier” and “settlement builder” that blocks all efforts to achieve peace.

By agreeing that the elected government is recalcitrant, the Israeli Left proves Abbas’s point.

By reaching phony deals with Abbas, these leaders absolve him of all responsibility for the absence of peace.

The most obvious reason that Herzog and his colleagues engage in these operations is because they believe that weakening the elected government strengthens them. They see Israel’s national interests not as something common to all the country’s citizens, but as chips to be gambled away in their bid for political power.

Joining the PLO’s political war against Israel, they believe, improves their chances of beating Likud and the other right-wing parties at the ballot box.

But there is another – equally, if not more powerful -- reason that Herzog and his fellow leftists openly subvert the government and carry out unauthorized and arguably illegal phony peace talks with the PLO.

They are motivated by hatred.

The Israeli Left doesn’t merely view itself as the political rival of the Right. They view themselves as engaged in a life and death struggle with right wingers – and particularly the national religious camp. And this death struggle is not based on political calculations. It is based on pure, irrational and uncontrollable hatred.

Which brings us to the second big story about the Israeli Left.

Saturday night, Ofer Newman, who serves both as Herzog’s personal spokesman and as spokesman for the Zionist Union, published a post on Facebook that most Nazis would be comfortable signing on to.

Newman called Jews who live in Judea and Samaria, “lowly murderers.”

He said that Israelis living beyond the 1949 armistice lines, “are destroying our future.”

Arguing for the mass imprisonment of the Jews who live beyond the 1949 armistice lines Newman wrote in a manner that echoes medieval blood libels, they “built houses at the expense of our friends’ blood. They built swimming pools on the blood of murdered children.

They built cemeteries because they don’t care.”

“What kind of distorted moral foundation enabled these people to march forward towards the deaths of thousands of Israelis with no one there to say, ‘That’s enough. You are despicable murderers. You belong in jail!’” After Newman’s remarks were publicized, Herzog said he yelled at him and Newman said he didn’t mean it.

But of course he did.

So did Channel 10s news anchor Oshrat Cotler, when she said last week that the so-called settlers “are crazy.”

When her remarks caused an uproar, she corrected herself, noting that not all so-called settlers are crazy, some are sane. Which was nice.

The Left’s boundless, unhinged hatred for the religious Right, along with its continuous subversion of the national interest in order to advance its bid for power has caused Israel enormous, strategic damage.

The entire initiative to withdraw from Gaza, and destroy the Israeli towns and villages in the area while expelling their predominantly religious Zionist residents was predicated on a desire not to advance national security, but to destroy the religious Right.

Haaretz and other leading leftist voices admitted openly that endangering the country by surrendering Gaza, along with Gaza’s border with Egypt, to terrorists was a small price to pay for destroying the religious Zionist movement.

A month before the August 2005 expulsions, Haaretz published an editorial, which explained that it really didn’t matter whether Israel’s security was damaged by the withdrawal.

The real question,” the paper argued, “is not how many mortar shells will fall, or who will guard the Philadelphi Route between Gaza and Egypt, or whether the Palestinians will dance on the roofs of the destroyed communities.

“The real question is who sets the national agenda. The disengagement of Israeli policy from its religious fuel is the real disengagement currently on the agenda. On the day after the disengagement, religious Zionism’s status will be different.”

Israel has fought three wars with the Palestinians and one with Hezbollah since that withdrawal. Hundreds of soldiers and civilians have been killed. Thousands have been wounded.

Whereas 25,000 Israelis lived within range of Palestinian mortars and rockets from Gaza in July 2005, today Hamas’s missiles have a range covering nearly all of Israel.

Today we are subjected to daily claims by Leftist politicians, activists and their media partners that Israelis are tired of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu. His days in power are over. The “public” now sees that the Left is the only side that brings hope so it behooves the government to listen to the “public” and let the Left rule for a change.
