Hamas boosting anti-aircraft arsenal with looted Libyan missiles

Haaretz

A rocket fired by Palestinians from Gaza Wednesday night landed between Ashdod and Gedera, in the first such attack after a two-month period of quiet. Sirens sounded in Ashdod and nearby communities and residents were told to enter protected rooms and shelters. There were no injuries.

Since the terrorist attack on the Egyptian border near Eilat that killed eight on August 18, the Gaza border has been relatively calm with only a few rocket launches, most directed at small communities near the Gaza Strip. Last night’s rocket, fired around 11:10 p.m., landed in a field. It seems to have been fired from the northern end of the Gaza Strip, from a distance of about 30-35 kilometers . The explosion was heard clearly all over Ashdod, which means it had a relatively large warhead.

Judge Napolitano: Obama ‘Shredding the Constitution’

Muslims say crosses at Catholic University Violate “Human Rights”

Fox News

The Washington, D.C. Office of Human Rights confirmed that it is investigating allegations that Catholic University violated the human rights of Muslim students by not allowing them to form a Muslim student group and by not providing them rooms without Christian symbols for their daily prayers.

The investigation alleges that Muslim students “must perform their prayers surrounded by symbols of Catholicism – e.g., a wooden crucifix, paintings of Jesus, pictures of priests and theologians which many Muslim students find inappropriate.”

Justice Department Grants Big Government Authority to Lie

Moonbattery

This must be what Obama means by transparency:

A proposed rule to the Freedom of Information Act would allow federal agencies to tell people requesting certain law-enforcement or national security documents that records don’t exist — even when they do.

Under current FOIA practice, the government may withhold information and issue what’s known as a Glomar denial that says it can neither confirm nor deny the existence of records.

The new proposal — part of a lengthy rule revision by the Department of Justice — would direct government agencies to “respond to the request as if the excluded records did not exist.”

That is, the Injustice Department is granting the government authority to evade the law by telling lies. By a remarkable coincidence, the department is headed by a skeevy dissimulator who was recently caught lying to Congress about his involvement in the Fast & Furious gunrunning operation.

Just for laughs, here’s Barack Hussein in January 2009 praising the Freedom of Information Act and promising that transparency would be a “touchstone” of his administration:

Like Obama, Karl Rove Seems Willing to Subvert the Constitution to Win in 2012

By Colonel
Lawrence Sellin
(Ret)

First of all, no one
should take Karl Rove too seriously. He acts purely out of
self-interest.

Rove cares little about the Constitution, the rule of law
or the country. He is only interested in winning elections because each election
he wins increases his power, prestige and the size of his financial
portfolio.

Fast and Furious: Operation High Crimes and Misdemeanors

Floyd Reports

A reasonable person would probably say that involvement in acts that resulted in murder constitutes a high crime. It would certainly become one if the perpetrators went on to lie and cover up their involvement in that act. It has become quite clear that Attorney General Eric Holder, perhaps Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and highly likely, their boss, Usurper Barack Hussein Obama-Soetoro, were involved in just such a crime and cover-up with Project Gunrunner and Operation Fast and Furious.

Even at the current level of cursory investigation – a congressional committee, rather than a special prosecutor – there appears to be undisputed evidence that this was a politically motivated plan designed to create the false impression that massive gun trafficking from the U.S. to Mexico was taking place, so Democrats could demand and impose draconian new gun control laws. They allowed thousands of guns to be illegally transported across our open border into Mexico by known members of Mexican drug cartels. Some of these weapons were used to murder Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, ICE Agent Jaime Zapata, and wound ICE Agent Victor Avila. In addition, the weapons were used to murder dozens of Mexican citizens.
