Is anyone familiar with the website Hot Air? The website is apparently right-wing, and is stocked with right-wing bloggers as well as Fox News contributors. The “About” page states it was founded by Michelle Malkin, also a Fox News host. Malkin also founded the right-wing website “Twitchy.”
Hot Air recently wrote an article titled “Good news: ISIS ‘showing a good degree of tactical awareness,” which seemingly implies that they think it is good news that ISIS has tactical awareness. Are they on the side of ISIS? Whose side are they on?
What does tactical mean? Let’s double-check.
Tactical – of, relating to, or constituting actions carefully planned to gain a specific military end. “As a tactical officer in the field he had no equal.” Also: (of bombing or weapons) done or for use in immediate support of military or naval operations.
This is a very strange title coming from a conservative U.S. magazine. Imagine the outrage on the right if a left-leaning website had an article with the same title.
“A group of 47 Republican senators has written an open letter to Iran’s leaders warning them that any nuclear deal they sign with President Barack Obama’s administration won’t last after Obama leaves office.
CNN states the letter was addressed to “the Leaders of the Islamic Republic of Iran.”
“Organized by freshman Senator Tom Cotton and signed by the chamber’s entire party leadership as well as potential 2016 presidential contenders Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and Rand Paul, the letter is meant not just to discourage the Iranian regime from signing a deal but also to pressure the White House into giving Congress some authority over the process.
“It has come to our attention while observing your nuclear negotiations with our government that you may not fully understand our constitutional system … Anything not approved by Congress is a mere executive agreement,” the senators wrote. “The next president could revoke such an executive agreement with the stroke of a pen and future Congresses could modify the terms of the agreement at any time.”
CNN states that Hillary Clinton criticized the Senate Republicans who wrote the letter aimed at undermining the President’s nuclear negotiations with Iran. She called the move “out of step with the best traditions of American leadership.”
The Democratic front-runner for the 2016 presidential campaign told reporters at the United Nations on Tuesday that “one has to ask, what was the purpose of this letter?”
“There appear to be two logical answers,” Clinton said, according to CNN. “Either these senators were trying to be helpful to the Iranians or harmful to the commander-in-chief in the midst of high-stakes international diplomacy. Either answer does discredit to the letter’s signatories.”
How awkward that fellow Americans forced her to defend the situation.
The letter warns Iran’s leaders that a lasting nuclear deal would have to be approved by Congress.
Senator Tom Cotton, who spearheaded the letter, said Tuesday he’d welcome “even Hillary Clinton,” the presumptive Democratic presidential front-runner, to sign the letter. Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, a potential 2016 contender, signed the letter Tuesday, according to his spokeswoman.
“I suspect she might have reservations about this ill-fated nuclear deal with Iran as well,” Cotton said to CNN’s News Day.
Senators Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul and Lindsey Graham are among the 47 Republicans who signed Cotton’s letter.

Does anyone remember reading or seeing on the television prior to the election that ISIS was coming across our borders in order to spread Ebola? And then, after the election in November, that story disappeared? Hmm….ever wonder where those stories originated?

Apparently, Mark Levin gets paid to go on rants about Latinos and television host Jorge Ramos…

According to Bill Morlin of the Southern Poverty Law Center, Larry Steve McQuilliams, the man who went on a shooting spree in downtown Austin last weekend, was a member of a Christian Identity movement known as the Phineas Priesthood.
Why did this act of terrorism get so little media attention?
MIT economist Jonathan Gruber is one of the developers of the health care bill that became the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). He made some comments at a health care forum about American voters and the ACA. With Obamacare open enrollment set to begin over the weekend and the Supreme Court set to weigh in again on the law next year, Fox News pounced on the comments, using the videos as ammunition in their case that President Barack Obama and his administration misled the American public on Obamacare.
