"Intelligence to a modern liberal isn't depth, it's appearance. It isn't even an intellectual quality, but a spiritual quality. Compassionate people who care about others are always "smarter", no matter how stupid they might be, because they care about the world around them.
September 11 was a calling card that served its purpose for Al Qaeda moving it along to its next stage from a series of isolated terror groups to a global army with the manpower to launch full scale guerrilla wars seizing cities and entire regions. The core Al Qaeda doesn't need another September 11. It will leave that to its affiliates, some of which are already playing with WMDs.
The "Palestinian" case that Judis retroactively constructs is a modern invention and he admits as much. Liberals of the day, like Bartley Crum of the Anglo-American Committee of Inquiry on Palestine, heard from Dr. Hitti of the Institute for Arab-American Affairs that there was no such entity as Palestine.
This was just what Lady Young was looking for. She had already been giving lectures and evidence to a House of Lords committee on the EU's earlier Water Framework directive, proclaiming that one of her agency's top priorities should be to create more 'habitats' for wildlife by allowing wetlands to revert to nature. As she explained in an interview in 2008, creating new nature reserves can be very expensive. By far the cheapest way was simply to allow nature to take its course, by halting the drainage of wetlands such as the Somerset Levels. The recipe she proudly gave in her lectures, repeated to that Lords committee, was: for 'instant wildlife, just add water'.
The civil war encompasses debates over testing and charter schools. On one side are technocratic progressives backed by Silicon Valley; a small army of successful men and women turned amateur experimenters trying to tinker with schools in their free time through wealthy foundations determined to centralize and nationalize the educational system. On the other side is the traditional inertia of teachers unions still fighting for a school system that gives teachers everything and asks for nothing in return.
All that would make Dahlan a bit of a Shakespearean villain, killing everyone in sight to seize power, playing the United States against Russia and Israel.
When the mayor announced his 62-point safe streets initiative, which includes lowering the speed limit to 25 mph, he said, "We want the public to know that we are holding ourselves to this standard."
He explained that PA law grants terrorists imprisoned for more than five years a salary of 4,000 shekels ($1140) a month, which continues for three years following their release from prison. This is in addition to monthly salary payments while in prison.
Bill de Blasio's runaway $73.7 billion 2015 budget is a more than $4-5 billion increase over Mayor Bloomberg's already insane $68.5 billion budget for 2014 and $70 billion budget in 2014.
The NOAA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, predicted a hot winter. They were disastrously wrong. The mistake wasn't just a technicality. Cities didn't properly prepare for the coming winter leading to blocked roads, lost work and even deaths.
We're talking about Amiri Baraka aka LeRoi Jones. The author of such timeless verses as "Youth ended, I shall try/My gain or loss thereby/Leave the fire ashes, what survives is gold."
Nowadays people don't ask for references. They just Google your name. And if you Google my name, all sorts of horrifying things come up: Holocaust denier, Nazi apologist, supporter of terrorism. And no responsible administrator in anything, forget about academia, quite literally even the post office. And that's literal, that's not poetic. Even for a job at the post office, they won't consider you.
"In the aftermath of the September 11, 2001, attack on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, Americans have displayed their true colors of jingoism, a militaristic spirit of nationalism…"
The State scientists now regulate all such matters. Once a month our Officer of Hygiene comes and examines each member of the household. He then prescribes the kind of food he thinks you require for the next few weeks, whether it shall be more or less phosphates, or cereals, or carnivorous preparations.
Councilwoman Rosie Mendez (D-Manhattan) has introduced bills to ban the use of "wild or exotic" animals in circuses in the last two sessions of the Council, but they have never come to a vote.
The FBI has reached a point in its history and functions that it must knuckle under the liberal/left/Marxist perception of criminality, a definition of criminality which exempts genuine criminals by excluding their ideology from official approbation, and treat the ideology's victims as the true criminals. Consciously, or by osmosis, the FBI has adopted those same intrusive, oppressive and totalitarian policies.
1. We admitted that like crazed pale metrosexuals we were powerless over Obama huffing, puffing, and fluffing — that our political lives had become unmanageable, bereft of truth, justice, and integrity.

The left likes to use words to mean their opposites. Communist dictatorships like to call themselves "democratic" republics. It's a cynical tease, because it shows that they know democracy is better than dictatorship.
Joe is hardly a down-the-line right-winger. He's more of an ornery, traditional centrist; 30 years ago he would probably have been a "Reagan Democrat." But he committed the cardinal sin of challenging Barack Obama on "redistributionist" tax policy during the 2008 campaign. Apparently, he'll never be forgiven: not so much for doing that, perhaps, as for failing to recant under pressure afterward.
