Palin Scrubs Website of Ad That Targeted GiffordsGiffords Jewish, and a STRONG supporter of Israel
Several months ago one of Sarah Palin's websites, TakeBackThe20.com, displayed a poster that indicated their intent to defeat twenty Democratic members of Congress, including Gabrielle Giffords, who had voted for "Obama Care."
This morning, shortly after the news that Congressman Gabrielle Giffords had been shot, the vigilant folks at SarahPac scrubbed the website of the inflammatory image.
Giffords highlighted her Jewish identity as part of her first Congress campaign.Giffords stated on her web site that federal debt is the single biggest threat to our economy and national security today.
“If you want something done, your best bet is to ask a Jewish woman to do it,” she said at the time.
Giffords is the granddaughter of Akiba Hornstein, the son of a Lithuanian rabbi who in the 1940s moved from New York to Tucson.
Gabrielle Giffords first visited Israel in 2001 as an Arizona senator, later saying that she felt very committed to Judaism and that the visit provided her with a basis to better understand who she is and where she came from.
Upon returning to Arizona, she introduced legislation that helped Holocaust survivors.
In a recent visit at the Temple Emanuel synagogue she told the congregation that the US must remain committed to Israel, the Middle East's only democracy. Last week, she wrote in Arizona's Jewish newspaper that there would be no peace in the region before the Palestinian leadership and other organizations accept Israel's right to exist.
On January 7, 2011, Congresswoman Giffords spoke with Bill Hemmer of Fox News about the need to address our nation's debt, beginning with a 5% pay cut for Members of Congress. If families across America must tighten their belts, she believes that Members must do the same in Congress.

The Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 prohibits the President from using "any part of the Army of the United States... for the purposes of executing the laws" unless expressly authorized by the Constitution or an act of Congress. Regulations governing its enforcement explicitly rule out the "direct participation by a member of the Army, Navy, Air Force, or Marine Corps in a search, seizure, arrest, or other similar activity"When CNN says, "There's nothing to indicate this is terrorism," they mean "There's nothing to indicate killer is Muslim."
The President can waive the law by invoking the Insurrection Act, which grants him powers to put down lawlessness, rebellion, and resistance by states to the enforcement of federal laws.
While the act applies to the Army, Air Force, Navy, and Marines, including their Reserve components, it does not apply to the Coast Guard or to the huge military manpower resources of the National Guard.
