 The Banality of Evil 
The "banality of evil” became part of the cultural lexicon following the publication of German-born author Hannah Arendt's 1963 book "Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil." The book recounted the trial of Nazi Adolph Eichmann, who was chief of operations for the Gestapo-run Department for Jewish Affairs, and responsible for the deportation of three million Jews to extermination camps. Arendt hypothesized that people who carry out such barbarous crimes may not be inherently evil, but instead fairly ordinary individuals who simply accept the premises under which they operate.
          For the last two weeks, our nation has been rocked by a series of videos produced by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) revealing that Planned Parenthood (PP) has been involved in the harvesting and selling of fetal organs. CMP has released four of what they say is a series of 12 undercover videos, and each one has been more disturbing than its predecessor. In a bombshell claim, CMP founder David Daleiden revealed to CNN that one of those videos depicts a meeting with top leaders from organ recipient company StemExpress, admitting "they sometimes get fully intact fetuses shipped to their laboratory from the abortion clinics they work with, and that could be prima facie evidence of born-alive infants. And so that’s why they’re trying to suppress that videotape and they’re very scared of it.”
          Indeed, StemExpress sued to keep the video from going public, and they secured a temporary stay from Judge William Orrick, a California federal judge who raised $230,000 for Barack nObama. And, by the way, PP President Cecile Richards has visited the White House 39 times since 2009 — just to be clear how much nObama supports the abortion industry.
          None of what the public has seen so far could be described as banal. Yet for the pro-abortionists and their supporters in government and the media, who ultimately convinced the Supreme Court to decide the entire nation must accept the premise of abortion on demand is an integral part of the auspices under which the nation must now operate, the act that has precipitated every bit of this descent into organ-harvesting darkness has become the essence of banality.  -The Patriot Post

 BEAU loose lips BIDEN’S TOP ADVISER JOINS JOE’S  CAMPAIGN IN WAITING 
Vice President loose lips Joe Biden seems to be getting serious. On the heels of a NYT report Saturday that said Biden was seriously considering another presidential run, a former aide to loose lips Biden’s late son Beau Biden announced Sunday he is set to join the Draft Biden super PACJosh Alcorn is described by the AP as the younger loose lips Biden’s “top political and fundraising” aide from Delaware. Alcorn’s move, coupled by the revealing write from NYT’s Maureen Dowd on Beau’s urgent dying wish for his father, signals the serious tip the vice president may actually take the plunge into the race. From MoDo: “Beau was losing his nouns and the right side of his face was partially paralyzed. But he had a mission: He tried to make his father promise to run, arguing that the White House should not revert to the Clintons and that the country would be better off with loose lips Biden values.”  -Fox News

 Hilly starts spending -  Clinton, who is up 28 points in Iowa, and 15 points in New Hampshire, put out her first television ads late Sunday night in the early states. Both ads center on her mother, Dorothy, who was abandoned as a child and sent to live with relatives, Clinton says her mother’s story inspired her to run for office. It is a familiar narrative for Clinton who talked a lot about her mother in her 2008 run as well. The videos signal that despite reassurances from the Clinton camp that they are not worried about Vice President loose lips Biden’s run they are also not taking any chances.  -Fox News

nOBAMA TO ORDER BIG CUTS IN PLANT EMISSIONS 
Once again wielding his pen in an attempt to cement his legacy, President nObama will finalize an EPA rule today that imposes deep cuts in carbon dioxide emissions from the country’s power plants. Despite political opposition and the virtual certainty of legal challenges from states and industry, the president is upping the ante by announcing steeper reductions – almost a third of 2005 level carbon emissions – than previously floated. Reaction from Republican 2016 candidates to the rule was swift, with several accusing the president of pandering to Democratic “environmentalist billionaires.”  -Fox News

 Confirms, backstabber Boehner DOES NOT Have The Votes...  
{gopthedailydose.com} ~ Breitbart News Sunday on Sirius XM Patriot Radio spoke to Florida Republican Congressman Ted S. Yoho, a serious voice for conservatives who believe in limited government, fiscal conservatism, personal responsibility, and free enterprise... Speaking to Breitbart’s senior investigative political reporter Matthew Boyle, Yoho explained why he signed on as a co-sponsor to Rep. Mark Meadows bid to unseat Speaker of the House Rep. backstabber John Boehner. Yoho said that backstabber Boehner spends too much time retaliating against conservatives and has let nObama basically get whatever he wants.        http://gopthedailydose.com/2015/08/03/gop-congressman-confirms-john-boehner-does-not-have-the-votes-to-remain-speaker/

 Is nObama taking Hilly out?  
{Monica Crowley} ~ Hilly Clinton is not going to be the Democratic nominee for president... Yes, the conventional wisdom is that she is still the prohibitive favorite, armed with big money, big connections, and the Big Dog, Bill. But the so-called “wisdom” is “conventional” for a reason. As a result of endless sordid scandals and predictably Clintonian evasions, her poll numbers on everything from favorability to trustworthiness are in a nosedive. A battery of new polls in key swing states such as Colorado and Iowa show her losing to a number of GOP challengers http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/jul/29/monica-crowley-obama-a-threat-to-hillary-clinton/?page=all#pagebreak

 Senate fails to advance Planned Parenthood defund effort  
{foxnews.com} ~ The Senate failed Monday to advance a Republican-led measure to halt federal aid to Planned Parenthood... but leaders of the GOP-controlled chamber appear ready to continue the fight, galvanized by a series of unsettling videos about the group. The vote to bring debate on the bill was 53 against to 46 in favor. The measure had not been expected to get the 60 votes needed to move it toward a final vote because Republicans needed several “yeas” from Democrats, who largely support Planned Parenthood.

 US Will Give Out More Green Cards Than Combined Populations of...  
{Terresa Monroe-Hamilton} ~ This is sheer national suicidal insanity. We are bringing in legally over 1 million new immigrants a year into the US. A country that is on the verge of bankruptcy and whose job market is so bad... that millions have not worked in years. Instead, we bring in low skilled, cheap, slave labor and deprive ever more Americans of even the lowliest of jobs so they can support themselves. Once Americans run out of unemployment benefits, they are forced onto the welfare rolls. Eventually, the whole entitlement system will overload and implode. Cloward and Piven would be proud. No one is addressing this in the US currently except Senator Jeff Sessions who has warned about this emergency forever and who has received nothing but derision for his efforts to save America. In ten years, we will issue more green cards than the combined populations of South Carolina, New Hampshire and Iowa. If we last ten years, that is.

 IRAN DEAL: nO'S FOREIGN POLICY nOBAMACARE  
{David Limbaugh} ~ President nObama’s sordid Iran nuke deal is looking more and more like the foreign policy version of nObamacare. It’s duplicitous, secretive, destructive and legacy-driven, and he’s going to have to go full community organizer to get it passed... This deal was born in hell. It is the culmination of nObama’s dangerously flawed philosophy that you enhance national security through appeasement. If we can secure a deal with Satan’s stepchild, after all, we can remake the globe into the peaceful utopia progressives romantically envision. Never mind that this terrorist theocracy, by its own admission, is immune to rehabilitation. “Death to America, death to Israel.” Even in the midst of negotiations with the nObama regime, the mullahs didn’t bother to pretend they had goodwill toward us.

 nOBAMA DETAINS 27 CHRISTIAN ASYLUM SEEKERS  
{Leo Hohmann} ~ More than two dozen Iraqi Chaldean Christians forced from their homes by ISIS have been detained at an ICE detention center in California for six months after crossing the border from Mexico... The San Diego Union reported July 31 that 20 of the 27 Chaldeans at the Otay Detention Center in Otay Mesa, California, have American family members living in Southern California who are willing to sponsor them. Family members have been holding weekly vigils and rallies to draw attention to the detentions. Large U.S. Chaldean Catholic communities reside in San Diego and Detroit. The family members say they’ve been given few details on why they’ve been detained for so long, despite being refugees from Middle East terror. Barack nObama has been letting countless illegal aliens, not to mention Muslim refugees, storm into America. But apparently he's got a serious problem with some two dozen CHRISTIANS fleeing for their lives from ISIS ...

 Left Building an Army of Elizabeth Warrens  
{Aleister} ~ If you thought the faith progressives have in Elizabeth Warren was over the top, you ain’t seen nothing yet... So strong is the left’s love of all things Warren, they’re now trying to create an army of political candidates just like her to run for public office. Topics covered in the conference included everything from the basics of campaigning to fundraising and using the internet for outreach. During her personal appearance at the event, Warren offered encouragement to her cult-like horde of devotees:

 Americans Oppose Iran Deal By Two To One Margin  
{Jeff Dunetz} ~ A Quinnipiac University Poll released Monday morning shows that American voters oppose the Iran deal by a  two to one. 57 - 28% margin... Republicans oppose the deal by a huge 86-3% margin. Independents also oppose the deal by a strong 36%, 55-29% margin with Democrats supporting the deal by a strong 52-32% which may be an indication that the Democratic support for the deal has more to do with the president is from their party than a believe the agreement is good for the country.        http://yidwithlid.blogspot.com/2015/08/quinnipiac-university-poll-americans.html?utm_source=The+Lid+List&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=916e1d996f-RSS_EMAIL_CAMPAIGN&utm_term=0_597b72c01c-916e1d996f-291705165&goal=0_597b72c01c-916e1d996f-291705165

 The Iran deal’s dangerous precedent  
{John R. Bolton} ~ Had anyone believed President nObama’s mantra that “all options are on the table” to deal with Iran’s nuclear weapons program, the Vienna agreement might have emerged less advantageously for Tehran... But no one took Mr. nObama’s threat of military force seriously — a credibility gap that Israel still fears and Iran still exploits. Even so, Vice President loose lips Joseph R. Biden Jr. is still trying to reassure nervous Democrats in Congress that the Vienna agreement does not preclude America’s use of force. Despite its blasé confidence in the agreement, however, the nObama administration understands the near-certainty that Iran will break its word. Tehran’s potential violations were not merely one of many difficult issues for negotiators; they were the essence of the talks. The deal’s entire structure turns on the issue of how to detect and handle breaches. If Iran is caught transgressing, Mr. nObama’s plan is not to use force, but to apply “snapback sanctions.” His administration has argued repeatedly that such sanctions (or even new sanctions) will deter or punish violations, keeping the deal on track and Iran clear of nuclear weapons. This rationale conforms to the underlying logic for the talks themselves: If sanctions brought Iran to the table, then sanctions will keep the deal viable once implementation begins.

 Palestinians: The Difference between Us and Them  
{Bassam Tawil} ~ I cannot count the number of times that I heard from Israeli Jews the phrases "I'm ashamed" and "I'm sorry" in response to the horrific crime that claimed the life of Palestinian toddler Ali Dawabsha in the West Bank village of Duma last week... The strong response of the Israeli public and leaders to the arson attack is, truthfully, somewhat comforting. The wall-to-wall Israeli condemnation of this crime has left me and other Palestinians not only ashamed, but also embarrassed -- because this is not how we Palestinians have been reacting to terror attacks against Jews -- even the despicable murder of Jewish children. Our response has, in fact, brought feelings of disgrace and dishonor. While the Israeli prime minister, president and other officials were quick strongly to condemn the murder of Dawabsha, our leaders rarely denounce terror attacks against Jews. And when a Palestinian leader such as Mahmoud Abbas does issue a condemnation, it is often vague and equivocal.

Land of the Freeloaders

Burt_Header_M2.jpg
.
     {burtprelutsky.com} ~ If Rip Van Winkle slept for a few decades and awoke today, he wouldn’t know where he was. No longer the land of the free and the home of the brave, America has morphed into a place that is part insane asylum, part soup kitchen and part sewer.
.
     Think what Mr. Van Winkle would make of traditional marriage. When he pulled the blankets under his chin, the Left was announcing that the institution was outdated and bourgeois, to boot, ensuring that the young and hip, including those who were busy having kids or abortions, would give it a wide berth. Then, suddenly, homosexuals, who would have us believe that they are the youngest and the hippest, decided it was only passé because they weren’t being allowed to partake. Overnight, the Left decided marriage was sacred, and to deny guys the right to marry other guys, and gals the right to marry other gals, was an affront to everything America allegedly holds dear.
.
♦ The latest examples of people walking around in public without their brains was presidential candidate Martin O’Malley apologizing to an audience of boorish blacks for insisting that all lives matter when by this time every liberal understands that only black lives matter. If he at least had some guts to make up for his lack of brains, he might have said, “If black lives matter so much, why don’t you do something about all those young black thugs killing blacks in your neighborhood, instead of wasting everyone’s time whining about cops and white people?”
.
♦ Proving that he’s every bit the bonehead ex-Gov. O’Malley is, Seattle’s Mayor Ed Murray, having been told that according to Sharia law, Muslims aren’t allowed to pay interest on loans, wishes to offer Muslims in his hometown interest-free home loans, leaving it to Seattle’s suckers to pony up the difference.
.
     Frankly, I suspect he’s got it wrong. I expect that Muslims, as it is with orthodox Jews, who aren’t supposed to charge their fellow Jews interest, Muslims are allowed to pay interest on home loans and are just hoping that nobody sets Mayor Murray straight.
.
♦ Speaking of Muslims, isn’t it time that when someone named Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez opens fire on a Marine recruiting office, we accept that it’s an Islamic act of terrorism without having to wait for a psychological profile to confirm what we all already know?
.
♦ In the meantime, the Great Satan who resides in the White House, who saw fit to bathe the place with colored lights in celebration of the Supreme Court’s latest brain freeze, waited five days before caving in to public pressure and ordering that flags be lowered in honor of the sailor and the four Marines murdered by young Abdulazeez.
.
♦ Proving that the folks at the Department of Defense are as dense as bricks, but not nearly as useful, the solution they came up with to prevent future carnage at military recruitment centers is that Marines wear civvies on the job. Apparently Washington bureaucrats think that Muslims are as stupid as they are. Do they really believe that when the next jihadists show up at the mall, they’ll simply drive by and then go home, fooled by the fact that the folks sitting at the desks inside aren’t wearing their uniforms?
.
♦ America doesn’t need a he-man like Vladimir Putin in the Oval Office. We don’t need a bare-chested hunter of bears, a man who swims in icy waters or a guy who rips Moscow telephone books in half. We do need a president who thinks all American lives matter, not just those of blacks, Hispanics and Muslims. We need a person who is more concerned with America’s future than with his legacy, more concerned with our best interests than with Cuba’s and Iran’s.
.
     What we have in Barack nObama is an underachieving fruitcake who came into office believing, mistakenly, that America required a radical transformation. What we require of the next president is that he’ll understand that eight years later, America will desperately need to be radically transformed back to the way it used to be.
.
♦ I doubt that any of my readers are dumb enough to take the bet, but I am giving odds that next year’s Nobel Peace Prize will be shared by hanoi John Kerry and Mohammad Javad Zarif. (Are all of those schmucks named Mohammad?)
.
♦ I had my own problems with George W. Bush. Mainly, they revolved around the way he conducted the Iraq War, not that he waged it. I objected to the fact that he forced the military to fight with one arm tied behind its collective back. I refer to the fact that he wouldn’t allow mosques to be bombed even though we knew Saddam Hussein was using them as armories and barracks, forcing our soldiers to fight pitched battles in the streets. And let us not forget that, according to Bush’s book of wartime etiquette, we were required to re-build every damn building almost as soon as we knocked it down.
.
     I was willing to give him points for his highly publicized greetings of returning vets at the Dallas airport and his visits to military hospitals and even his annual bike rides with wounded vets, although I never lost sight of the fact that if he’d conducted a different kind of war maybe so many of them wouldn’t have been wounded, or worse, in the first place.
.
     It didn’t help that he was also the jackass who seemed to devote every waking hour to telling us that Islam was a religion of peace.
.
     But ever since the AP reported that in 2012, he gave a speech on behalf of a Texas-based military charity called Helping a Hero, charging them $100,000, and an additional $20,000 for the private jet ferrying him to and fro, I have begun to understand why he and Bill (ka-ching) Clinton seem to get along so well.
.
     Lest you think he is really hard up financially, it seems that since leaving office in 2009, Bush has given at least 200 other speeches, earning him in excess of $30 million. That’s not counting the book deals.
.
♦ But that is the sort of nation we have become. Our ex-presidents, and some of their wives, seem to think they should be as rich as Midas.
.
     But perhaps we shouldn’t expect anything better. After all, if you take a long hard look at America, you’ll find that we have a website dedicated solely to adulterers looking to link up. The garbage pail known as the Internet is full of pedophiles buying and selling child pornography. And just about every day some outfit is sending me email promising to enhance my ------.
.
     We have devolved from a once-great nation to an open sewer without borders, a functioning military, and a Constitution that’s treated like toilet paper by the president and five members of the Supreme Court.
.
     Sometimes, I swear, it’s only the hope of one day having an enhanced ----- that keeps me going.
