THE STEVE YUHAS
Rockets and Iranian-supplied missiles continue to fall on
Israel. San Diego resident Rachel Barnes
found out from the news that a missile hit an apartment in the Israeli town of
Kiryat Malachi. She found out that her
24-year-old cousin Itzik Amsalen was one of the three Israelis killed by the
Hamas. Israel has a right to defend
herself – just as the United States would if missiles supplied by Iran to al
Qaeda were being fired from Tijuana into the U.S.A. were slamming into San
Diego or Los Angeles.
Israel has been under threat of Iranian-supplied missiles
flying out of Gaza for the last five days.
has a new Ace of Iron Dome and he honed his skills playing World of Warcraft:
good thing the savages turning Gaza (where there is no Israeli and no Jew) are
fundamentalists and see video games as evil.
Watch what happens when a nerd playing World of Warcraft shoots
down his 8th missile over Tel Aviv. Just goes to show there is a place for
everybody in the military.
It helps to
understand what’s actually going on in Israel by reading Israeli press. If you cannot read Hebrew use your browser’s

The student government at UC Irvine voted unanimously that
Israel is participating in human rights abuses and war crimes. Big deal and who cares? These are 16 college kids that couldn’t get
into UCLA or Berkeley or even UCSD.
They ought to worry more about being at a fake UC school & not
what’s happening in Israel – that they know nothing about.
workers – almost 20,000 of them – will lose their jobs over a strike that will
kill the Twinkie. The sad
thing: the workers don’t care because now they can get on the dole. Amazing, but they said it!
The General Petraeus story continues to unfold. He
testified before Congress last week (behind closed doors for some
reason) and the
harlot that is at the center of the scandal (the one that called the FBI when
she got an email she didn’t like) dined at the White House at least three
is it about being a general or admiral that could make somebody fall over the
cliff and turn into a self-entitled ‘celebrity’? It could be that they are treated more like
celebrities and less like military men and they end up being political in
nature – partly because the Senate has taken its role as advise and consent far
too far. The story of the AFRICOM
general demoted over travel is a good example of excess.
I’ve never heard of Bubba
the Love Sponge or anything close, but shock jocks are everywhere: why
Gen. Allen from Afghanistan would call on a civilian ‘honorary consul’ for
South Korea to ask him not to deep fry a Koran is absurd. What the hell is an honorary consul
anyway? There are more bureaucrats than
military in the USA and we asked a military groupie to do something important?
thing was learned when retired General Petraeus testified and that is the CIA
talking points sent to the White House – used by UN Ambassador Susan Rice on
several talk shows five days after the Benghazi terrorist attack – were altered
& the world al Qaeda removed. The White House says they didn’t do it, the
State Department said they didn’t do it – nobody did it apparently.
is in Thailand (for some reason, nobody really knows) and he visited a temple
where he asked monks to pray for a budget deal. Maybe he could have stayed in the United
States and negotiated with the Congress instead of flying across the world for
The taxes imposed on businesses and individuals (who run
businesses) will lead to a terrible employment problem. Taxes
will go up and that will mean prices go up. Previously full-time people will
become permanent part-time workers.
Seems the French are tolerant of a whole bunch of things:
part-time work for full-time pay; prostitution so long as it’s called something
polite; eating on the streets (so long as it is palatable and unique), but they
draw the line at gay marriage. Thousands
all over France are marching against it and the Muslims don’t want it either
– and if there is one thing that will help stop the bill there it is worry
about the Muslim segments of the population rioting (they like to riot).
president of Iraq’s Kurdistan region has ordered its peshmerga security forces
on high alert, a statement issued on
Saturday said, attributing the move to clashes with central government
forces. The United States lost blood and
treasure going to Iraq and now the central government in Baghdad is doing exactly
what Saddam Hussein did by trying to wipe out the Kurds.
people in California are worried that they are going to lose their jobless
That said: the economy is supposedly doing so wonderful in California
that there is no reason to keep them on unemployment. If the jobs are there – they shouldn’t have a
problem finding them and this shouldn’t be an issue. And the stop is not ‘sudden’ – they’re
getting months worth of warning.
Carl DeMaio wrote a piece in the OC Register about what the GOP needs to
do to win in the future. Why
is it that losers of elections think they can give people that can win
elections advice about things they need to do?
DeMaio lost because he
was a bad candidate who felt entitled.
He didn’t lose because the GOP needs to change.
Exactly two years ago this week,
the Obama administration announced it had issued more than 100 waivers en masse
to a select group of companies, unions and other health insurance providers
seeking relief from the onerous federal health care law. The Obamacare waiver
winner’s club now totals 2,000. Where are they now? Answer:
In the same miserable boat as every other unlucky business struggling with the
crushing costs and burdens of the mandate.
“Sequestration’s the only hope we
have to get spending under control,” Rep. Tom McClintock (R-Calif.), who sits
on the House Budget Committee, told Human Events this week. “I
would like to see adjustments made within the sequestration levels to reduce
the cuts to defense spending, spending. But it’s the only chance we have to
avoid a sovereign debt crisis.”
