Bibi's Win Provides Obama With a Clean Slate in the Peace ProcessjaredsxtnMar 24, 201532514
Benjamin Netanyahu's reelection left many of those who desperately want a peaceful solution to the decades old Israeli-Palestinian conflict in a sense of despair. The Prime Minister's victory, in many peoples eyes, virtually closes the door on any resolution between the two sides for the foreseeable future with no way of knowing when or if talks between the two sides will start again. This may be true in the short term, but Netanyahu's reelection may actually wind up being the best thing that could have ever happened to the peace process in decades. Allow me to explain why.
The Birther Hypocrisy The Right Desperately Wants You to IgnorejaredsxtnMar 23, 201512986
Do you hear that noise? It's the sound of crickets from the birther community after Senator Ted Cruz announced his candidacy for President of the United States. Why, you may ask, should there be any noise from this community over Senator Cruz's eligibility to run for President in 2016? Well, that's because Senator Cruz, unlike President Obama, actually wasn't born in the United States.Ever since then Senator Obama announced his intention to run for President in 2007, Republicans questioned his eligibility to do so by insinuating he wasn't a United States citizen.
The CISA "cyber-security" Bill is being fast-tracked through CongressjakalopMar 20, 201514106
When the Senate Intelligence Committee passed the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act by a vote of 14 to 1, committee chairman Senator Richard Burr argued that it successfully balanced security and privacy. Fifteen new amendments to the bill, he said, were designed to protect internet users’ personal information while enabling new ways for companies and federal agencies to coordinate responses to cyberattacks. But critics within the security and privacy communities still have two fundamental problems with the legislation:First, they say, the proposed cybersecurity act won’t actually boost security.
The Schocking Fall of a Conservative DarlingjaredsxtnMar 18, 201513396
Aaron Schock didn't see his Congressional career ending like this. To be fair, no Representative envisions resigning in disgrace amid a mountain of scandals they just can't dig out of, but this is especially so for the young gun from Illinois 18th District who had delusions of grandeur for as long as I can remember. I feel confident in saying this because I grew up in the district Representative Schock lived in. And trust me--Aaron Schock had delusions of grandeur more than anyone I have ever known.
GOP Leaders Ignore Selma Anniversary at Their Own PeriljaredsxtnMar 6, 201532736
The Republican Leadership in Congress needs an intervention. There's just no other way to put it. How can a party who proclaims they want to open up their tent and be more welcoming to people who aren't old, white men not foresee the terrible optics of ignoring the 50th Anniversary of one of the worst racial injustices in modern history? I get it.
Sorry Bibi, You Aren't in Charge of America's Foreign PolicyjaredsxtnMar 3, 2015532462
Who exactly is in charge of American foreign policy? President Obama or Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu? Any middle-school aged student would easily be able to answer this, but the Republican Congress seems to think differently. Speaker Boehner's overtly political move of sticking his thumb in the eye of the President of the United States may have scored him some points among his fellow conservatives, but in doing so he may have irreparably damaged a decades long bipartisan relationship between the United States and Israel.Mr.
Silencing Kremlin Critics is Nothing New in Putin's RussiajaredsxtnMar 2, 201523533
Imagine the top opposition leader in America being gunned down by an assassin outside of the United States Capitol building. Then imagine the President assuming control of the inquiry into the assassination of his fiercest critic who just happens to be one in a long line of critics that meets an untimely demise. That would be unfathomable to even think about here in the United States, but this is what has now become the norm in Putin's Russia.The brazen assassination of Putin's most vociferous critic Boris Nemtsov has sent shock waves throughout the world and sparked massive protests both in and outside of Russia.
Playing Chicken With National Security is no Way to GovernjaredsxtnFeb 26, 201553716
When did Republicans become the party willing to play a game of chicken with our national security? In their ceaseless drive to undermine President Obama at every turn, they have now backed themselves into a corner with no easy way to get out. With funding for the Department of Homeland Security set to dry up at midnight Friday, they are now openly entertaining the prospect of shutting the department down unless they get their way. You read that correctly--the party who prides itself on national security might shut down the department responsible for keeping our nation safe unless all of their demands are met.
