Some see, few know, many choose to wander aimlessly in a fog, devoid of sunlight. I seek the light of day and leave the others to their chosen realm of ignorance. They are the ones who have brought this great nation down. I write only for the benefit of those who possess the courage required to restore our birthright.

BEN CARSON CALLS INTO QUESTION CDC SECRECY OVER EBOLA TESTING
Excerpt: “But you can certainly reveal that a patient has been tested and is negative to allay hysteria because when you have a situation where you're acting if a secretive manner, people have a tendency to assume the worst. So you have to be smart enough to weigh one thing against the other. You can't just sort of have blinders on and say ‘privacy, privacy, privacy’ and there's a riot going on outside. So, that's where wisdom comes in.”

IDF official: Gaza 2014 is worse off than Lebanon 2006
Excerpt:
More than 60 percent of Hamas' rocket manufacturing system was destroyed by Israeli strikes during Operation Protective Edge, senior IDF official says • IDF estimates that Hamas now only has about one-third of 9,000 rockets it possessed before operation.
Editor's Note:
This tells me that Hamas still has forty percent of its rocket manufacturing capability and 3000 rockets. This also tells me that Israel is withdrawing far too soon. As for Lebanon, eight years later they have one of the finest light infantry groups in the world. It is called Hezbollah and they have learned the error of their ways. See item below...

U.S. Blasts Israel for 'Disgraceful' Attack on UN School

Editor's note: Jennifer Psaki, pictured above, acting as spokesperson for the United States, tells us that the attack on the UN school was "disgraceful". Acting, not as an editor or writer; simply as an American I posted the following comment on Arutz Sheva:
"I have a criticism for Arutz Sheva, and for that matter most of the world's Media. I wish that any and all would refrain from saying that the U.S. blasts Israel. Please be more specific and state that the Obama administration, not the U.S., blasts Israel. Admittedly there are some of our liberals and progressives who support anyone who attacks Israel, but by and large, most Americans are firmly in the corner of the only nation in the world that opposes terrorism."
