Hey Jewish democrats, remember at the convention when Democrats removed Jerusalem from the platform and it took three tries to put it back in. Remember when the Media and the party told you that it was just a bad political fluke and that the party and President Obama really Really REALLY supports Israel?


Now that he has secured his second term, President Barack Obama has already secretly pledged to the Palestinians he will press Israel into a new round of so-called land-for-peace negotiations, a top Palestinian Authority negotiator told KleinOnline.

The negotiator said top members of the Obama administration told the Palestinians the U.S. president will renew talks aimed at creating a Palestinian state in the so-called 1967 borders – meaning in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and, notably, eastern Jerusalem.

If you want to be suckers that’s one thing but when you put an entire people at risk by being fools, it’s simply wrong.

There is a bit on the net this week on Fr Corapi, but while I like Fr. Longnecker and Mark Shea if I had to pick someone to comment on his situation, I’d pick this guy.

I urge you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree in what you say, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and in the same purpose. For it has been reported to me about you, my brothers, by Chloe’s people, that there are rivalries among you. I mean that each of you is saying, “I belong to Paul,” or “I belong to Apollos,” or “I belong to Kephas,” or “I belong to Christ.” Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul?

Good advice to anyone too enamored

There is a reason why Pride is first on the deadly sin list, every priest no matter how skilled or right should keep this in mind.

From the U.K. Telegraph:

A friend’s daughter recently started at a highly regarded boarding school. When her mother asked how she was enjoying the mixed-sex environment, the girl said quietly: “You have to give the boys oral sex or they get cross.” Reeling with shock, the mum protested that her darling daughter did not have to do anything of the sort. “Oh yes you do,” replied the girl. “And you have to shave down there or the boys don’t like it.”

That’s just a sample.  There’s also:

Only last week, we heard the awful story of Chevonea Kendall-Bryan, who fell to her death after pleading with a boy on the pavement below to erase the recording of her performing a sex act on him. “How much can I handle? HONESTLY. I beg you, delete that,” texted Chevonea. She was 13.

The author of this article, Allison Pearson, talks a lot about the porn culture and the ready access to a “virtual world” (online, texting, etc.). But she misses the point.   We could have thrown mobile phones at women in the 1860s, but no man would have dared to ask a lady to perform fellatio on him, because her dad would shoot him.  As in, dual to the death, all members of her family lined up to protest the treatment of their sister.  (I will note that some very backwards countries shoot the wronged woman, not the offending man.)

This is a sexual revolution issue.  Once we started saying that promiscuity is empowering, that sexual experimentation is fun for women, that pregnancy is the only obstacle a woman faces in intimate acts, we gave young men license to treat young women like unpaid prostitutes.  (Actually, worse – a man might understand if a prostitute said that she was off-duty for the night.)

The leaders of the sexual revolution – courted by men brought up with different standards than the ones espoused by the likes of Steinem – had it good.  But their legacy to my generation, and the generation behind me, is men brought up to believe that only a repressed woman does not put out, that sex is their right, and that there is nothing emotional that happens to a woman when she performs intimate (and sometimes quite vulgar and undignified) sex acts on men who are not her husband.  The logical result, no matter what the intentions of these Baby Boomer women were, is that men feel it is their natural right to sexually exploit all women.

Nice going, “feminists”.  Nice going.

Hypocrisy is the homage vice pays to virtue.

Today the Washington Post is all over a poll showing trouble for Mitch McConnell:

Only 17 percent of registered voters in Kentucky say they will vote for him in 2014, including only 34 percent of Republicans. Thirty-four percent of voters plan to oppose him, 44 percent want to see their other options, and 6 percent are not sure.

Politico jumps on it and notices that Democrats are hoping to do what they did in Missouri, dangling dollars preempting a strong tea party candidate (such as a Sarah Steelman supported by Sarah Palin supported) in favor of a weak tea party candidate (such as Todd Akin) in the primary instead.

Interestingly enough Mitch McConnell is also making moves to preempt the tea party. Rather than taking the Mitt Romney “destroy the Paul People” route he has not only reached out victorious Tea Party candidates who he opposed but their staffs too:

Now, Paul is supporting McConnell’s reelection bid. And much to the chagrin of tea party activists looking for a McConnell primary challenger, Massie has emphatically said he won’t take on McConnell. The conservative congressman is even scheduled to be a featured guest at a McConnell fundraiser in February in Northern Kentucky.

And one of McConnell’s first moves in his campaign was to hire a trusted aide of the Paul family — Jesse Benton — to run his campaign.

“Sen. McConnell is a true friend of the tea party and is working to help carry their voices in Washington,” said Benton, who led both Ron Paul’s 2012 presidential campaign and Rand Paul’s 2010 Senate race. “As I talk to grass-roots activists across Kentucky, I am very pleased at my reception and the great relationship we are building.

and McConnell has suddenly showed up at tea party events:

FRANK HARRIS: As far as I’m concerned, bringing Mitch in just shows that Mitch is afraid. He finally has to acknowledge the power, and the strength, of the Tea Party Movement.

BAILEY: Still, McConnell received a warm reception, and polite applause, from the Tea Party crowd. Louisville resident Jim Coyle MC’d the event. He admits he doesn’t agree with McConnell on much but will back him, anyway.

JIM COYLE: We have put out invitations to Senator McConnell before. And he hasn’t responded – and he hasn’t replied. But he did decide to come work with us on this one, so I’ll take him at his word. And we’ll work on Obamacare, one step at a time.

The various mechanization are to some degree uninteresting, after all this is the way politics is done but I find one question very interesting:

Since the election the media has been telling us the tea party is weak, the tea party is irrelevant, the tea party is finished…

…if this is true, why is the left even considering dealing with them to defeat or weaken or Mitch McConnell and why is McConnell courting them to keep it from happening?
