Interview: Andrew McCarthy Builds the Case for Obama’s Impeachment
"During our interview, Andrew will discuss his latest book, Faithless Execution: Building the Political Case for Obama’s Impeachment. Andrew tells me, 'As Madison put it, impeachment was indispensable in the minds of the framers....'" [rdbrewer]

Neil Munro: GOP Leaders Revive Democrats’ Amnesty Hopes
"Democratic leaders are welcoming efforts by the House GOP leadership to amend a minor 2008 immigration bill, because it could revive the now-dormant, business-backed comprehensive immigration reform push. The House’s proposed change to the 2008 bill is 'an opening for us to have a conference on our comprehensive immigration reform,' said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid." [rdbrewer]
Darwin inmates repeatedly break out of prison, get drunk, then sneak back in. Living the AOSHQ lifestyle Down Under. [Fritzworth]
Jordan Schachtel, Breitbart: THIRD Rocket Arsenal Found At UN School In Gaza [rdbrewer]

Boy has mark of devil?
No, boy has mark of Bullseye from the movie Daredevil. [rdbrewer]


QUIZ: Parody Or Actual Salon.com Article?
#1: "Harry Reid got it right: Clarence Thomas really isn’t black." Difficult, huh? [rdbrewer]

CBS DFW: Standing Room Only At Collin County Meeting About Immigrant Children
Thanks for the links, Drudge. [rdbrewer]

The Daily Mail: The revolutionary rub-on hormone gel that can banish depression
For those of you thinking of killing two birds with one stone, no, you can't use it on your wang. [rdbrewer]

CBS Chicago: Old guys rob pharmacy
Viagra. [rdbrewer]

Rolling Stone: Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
New album: Hypnotic Eye. [rdbrewer]
The Hot/Crazy Matrix: A Man's Guide to Women. Scroll down and play the embedded video. Absolutely sexist (I don't see either of these men being able to marry an 8+), but absolutely hilarious. [Fritzworth]

Tell Boehner: 'No New Laws'
"Changing or repealing Wilberforce is an admirable project. But in the current legislative context it is quite likely to trigger an attempt to set up an ongoing House-Senate conference in which every frustrated pro-amnesty lobbyist will try to stick in their favorite part of the Senate’s monstrous Gang of 8 'comprehensive' legalization + immigration increase bill. Fixing Wilbeforce isn’t worth that risk--it just isn't." Don't do it, you guys. [rdbrewer]

Chris Cillizza, WaPo: President Obama’s competence problem is worse than it looks
"You can understand President Obama's current political problems -- and how those problems could make things very tough for his party in this fall's midterm election -- in a single word. And that word is 'competence.'" [rdbrewer]

David Harsanyi: Seriously, What Is John Kerry Doing?
"It seems like a rather big deal when Egypt, Israel, Fatah, Jordan, Saudi Arabia – ostensibly, all allies of ours – agree on anything. This development, one imagines, would be something the United States would be interested in fostering rather than destroying." [rdbrewer]


You Want MORE Proof of Hamas Using Civilians As Human Shields? Here are Ten More..
To go with the other ten examples Jeff published a few days ago. Plus bonus examples. [rdbrewer]

The Grid, PJM: 14 Ways Hamas Weaponizes Women, Children, Animals Against Israel
Slide show. Via @EdDriscoll. [rdbrewer]

David Ignatius, WaPo: John Kerry’s big blunder in seeking an Israel-Gaza cease-fire
"Secretary of State John Kerry has made a significant mistake in how he’s pursuing a Gaza cease-fire — and it’s not surprising that he has upset both the Israelis and some moderate Palestinians." But #SmartPower!!! [rdbrewer]

Stella Morabito: Big Government Is The Borg, And Resistance Isn’t Futile
"It’s a Borg community, a 'hive mind' without distinct individuals. In the end, these systems are really fragile house of cards when exposed to resistance by true individuals. Why else would political correctness be so tirelessly applied to punish dissenters?" [rdbrewer]
How to impersonate Morgan Freeman with cold air instead of Helium [dri]
Draw and Strike goes on a Twitter rant
"@AndrewBreitbart was right about the DNC-Media Complex. They think they can rewrite history with impunity...." [rdbrewer]


Guy Benson: Miami synagogue vandalized with swastikas, pro-Hamas messages
"(The 'Kerry ruined everything' assessment comes from Israel’s leading left-leaning newspaper). Obama administration officials are furious with their Israeli counterparts for…criticizing the Obama administration. You know who else is 'fuming' at Kerry for scuttling the Egyptian deal? Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas. Yes, Team Smart Power has managed to rankle both Netanyahu and Abbas...." [rdbrewer]

The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies
Trailer. More from Forbes. [rdbrewer]

Jonathan Adler: The case for (and against) congressional standing to sue the president
"What is potentially different here is that the House is seeking to challenge executive action as an institution. The interesting legal question is whether this is enough to make a difference. I’m skeptical, but it will be interesting to watch." [rdbrewer]


Richard Fisher: The Danger of Too Loose, Too Long
"I have grown increasingly concerned about the risks posed by current monetary policy. First, we are experiencing financial excess that is of our own making.... Second, I believe we are at risk of doing what the Fed has too often done: overstaying our welcome by staying too loose, too long." [rdbrewer]


Byron York: The Democrats' impeachment fundraising extravaganza
"In the past 48 hours, first lady Michelle Obama, White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer, White House spokesman Josh Earnest, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, and others have raised the specter of an Obama impeachment." That's because the idiots who support them are easily persuaded. [rdbrewer]

Variety: Sarah Palin Launches Her Own Channel Online
"'I want to talk directly to you on our channel, on my terms — and no need to please the powers that be,' Palin, who is also a Fox News contributor, said in a video announcing the channel. 'Together, we’ll go beyond the sound bites and cut through the media’s politically correct filter.'" [rdbrewer]


Kevin Williamson: Halbig and Hammurabi
"The disdain for the letter of the law is complexly intertwined with the progressive managerial imagination: The law, in their view, is not something that limits the ambitions of princes, but something that empowers them to do what they see fit." [rdbrewer]

USA Today: Study: Fist bumps are less germy than handshakes
Someone studied that? Someone got money to study that? [rdbrewer]


Think Progress falls for fake story from parody website
About a Michelle Bachmann proposal for Americanization camps for illegal aliens. [rdbrewer]

P.J. O'Rourke: Why I Hate the Beach
"The water is freezing, the people are fat, and the sun will kill you. It’s time we were honest with ourselves about the horror of beach vacations." [rdbrewer]


Toby Harnden: Laura Ingraham, Tea Party Giant Killer, Eyes Her Next Scalp
"Her most withering contempt was aimed at her own party’s estab­lish­ment — the 'good old boys' and 'go along to get along Republican politicians doing backroom backslapping' with Democrats, being as eff­ective as 'beige wallpaper.'" [rdbrewer]
