Pathetic Hamas

July 24, 2014

Hamas is dedicated to the destruction of Israel and it will not allow peace to occur until that goal is reached. With misguided sympathy from the media, Hamas continues to pretend to be something other than a blood-thirsty terrorist organization, but it is not.

Hamas spokesman Sami Abu says: “We (Hamas) aren’t leading our people to destruction. We are leading them to death”. What kind of a sick statement is that? Hamas wants death, death, and more death, even if it’s their own people. That’s why they rejected a recent Israeli-accepted ceasefire. Peace is not an Hamas option.

The recent and short-lived suspension of international flights to and from Israel caused by Hamas rockets elicited this boast from Sami Abu: “The success of Hamas in closing Israeli airspace is a great victory for the resistance, and is the crown of Israel’s failure“.

How does protecting innocent travelers from Hamas’ random rocket attacks become an Israeli failure? What resistance is Hamas talking about – its own resistance to peace? How great a victory is it to accidentally hit the airport after firing hundreds of rockets into Israel indiscriminately? It is all just so terribly pathetic. Still, there are those willing to back Hamas terror as long as it is Israel on the receiving end.

Thousands of protesters have taken to the streets in Europe railing against Israel’s defensive campaign to stop Hamas attacks coming from Gaza. Hamas is using a hospital as headquarters and has encouraged civilians to ignore Israeli warnings of attacks, no doubt hoping to use civilian deaths for propaganda purposes. Protestors don’t mind as long as Israel is portrayed as the bad guy.

Pro-Palestinian demonstrations are largest in France where open immigration policies have resulted in the largest Muslim populations in Europe. Political correctness dictates the media not describe who most of these protestors are, but one can easily guess. Pretense is just a sham and it, too, is pathetic.

Our Government is Failing Its Responsibilities

June 16, 2014

The Preamble to the Constitution tells us very succinctly why our government exists: We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence (sic), promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity…Our government is currently failing to live up to these basic responsibilities.

Justice” for our government has been ideologically distorted to cater to minorities at the expense of the majority in order to advance the current administration’s policies. The Justice Department, led by Eric Holder, is surrounded in controversy with issues such as aggressive probing of journalists, the IRS scandal, drone attacks, and much more. It has selectively decided what to pursue and not pursue based on politics rather than justice and laws are being rewritten or ignored.

Domestic tranquility” has been severely hampered by the political partisanship pervading Congress. President Obama has established an “us against them” atmosphere for political gain and policies are being advanced that widen the divide in the country.

Providing for the country’s defense is the most egregious failure of our government. Our southern border is open due to policies set in place unilaterally by president Obama resulting in known Mexican gang members as well as possible terrorists entering the country with impunity. Obama’s abandonment of Iraq resulted in al Qaeda taking over and possibly gaining an entire country with its resources to use against us. Iran, on the verge of having nuclear weapons, may easily fill the void in Iraq or aid the terrorists to our detriment. Afghanistan is sure to follow suit when Obama’s declared abandonment comes to fruition. Putin is fearlessly resurrecting the USSR, endangering the U.S. and the entire world.

Social policies encouraged by our current government do not “promote the general Welfare”. These policies promote the “specific welfare” of groups that are politically advantageous for a transformation of America that will do nothing to “secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity”. This transformation is designed to prune our liberties to fit an idealistic agenda contrary to American traditions.

Our government’s failure to live up to these responsibilities is glaring and frightening. If we don’t get our government back to basics soon, there will be no future for our form of government.

Obama is Going Down in Flames

June 5, 2014

Releasing five hardcore terrorists from GITMO in exchange for an anti-American deserter was a flagrant display of cluelessness and an arrogant (possibly illegal) snub of Congress. It was done with the air of an emperor having his way and caring little of what peons think. Worse than that, it was dangerous since those terrorists are almost certain to return to killing.

Susan Rice praising Bowe Bergdahl as having “served the United States with honor and distinction” was a further display of how out-of-touch this administration really is. Rice should have been hidden away after delivering the Benghazi video narrative that destroyed her credibility and embarrassed the White House. Instead, she was brought out to deliver another false statement as if we are too stupid to notice.

This comes on the heels of the VA scandal that has some Democrats finally peeking out from behind idealistic blinders at the reality of the Obama administration. It has seriously disturbed many Democrat campaign balancing acts of trying to separate oneself from Obama while pretending Obamacare (ACA) is a success.

Obama’s failed foreign policies have severely reduced America’s standing in the world. His failed economic policies have produced an astronomical debt, wasted an enormous amount of money, and solidified unemployment to the point of eradicating the American Dream. His failed campaign promises have destroyed his credibility and increased distrust of government.

The bubble has burst and Obama is going down in flames. Polls show a continuous decline in public approval as scandal after scandal pop up like a whac-a-mole arcade game. He cannot click his heels and return to a sycophantic Congress backing everything he does, but it seems he no longer cares and has resigned himself to do whatever he wishes for the duration of his term.

Unfortunately, that duration is long enough for his runaway administration to do much more damage. His going down in flames has set fire to the entire country. The coming November elections could distinguish many of those fires and stop us from becoming a pile of ashes. Vote wisely.

Fear of Benghazi

May 22, 2014

The more liberals try to sell the Benghazi fiasco as a non-issue, the more evident it is that they fear it. Efforts to convince all that there is no scandal surrounding Benghazi are becoming desperately frantic and weak.

When asked about lack of Benghazi coverage, CNN president Jeff Zucker retorted that CNN would not be “shamed” into covering something that has no real news value. The real shame is that CNN and other liberal news outlets are only interested in reporting what they want the public to know. Anything negative about the Obama administration or Hillary Clinton is not considered news. Benghazi hurts both.

Barbara “Call me Senator” Boxer is belittling investigations into Benghazi, where four Americans were killed, as nothing more than the GOP’s fear of Hillary’s presidential candidacy. This comes straight from Alinsky’s ‘Rules for Radicals’ where rule number five states: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon”. It is the left’s favorite tactic and it fits well with their elitism.

The Daily Beast’s Eleanor Clift assures us that Ambassador Chris Stevens died of smoke inhalation and was not murdered at Benghazi. This semantic hair splitting is a pathetic attempt to lessen the seriousness of the event. She says she is just taking issue with the glib use of the word “murdered”, but the glib use of “pro-choice” for those approving the killing of a fetus has never been a concern for her.

President Obama knew Benghazi was a terrorist act and, at the very least, allowed a video to be blamed for days afterwards in an attempt to mislead the public. There are smoking-gun e-mails showing this video ruse was deliberate. The president’s credibility was at stake because he claimed that al Qaeda was decimated and on the run. His re-election was endangered by this façade crumbling only weeks before voters went to the polls. Yes, there is scandal here.

To quote Shakespeare: “The lady doth protest too much, methinks“.

Dangerous Democrats

March 6, 2014

Ann Coulter cuts through the smoke and mirrors and presents a stark summary that goes against much of the media’s “recollections” of the competence of Democrat president’s dealings with foreign affairs. It does not give one a warm, fuzzy feeling about current world events.

From Ann Coulter

As long as a Democrat sits in the White House, America will be repeatedly humiliated, the world will become a much more dangerous place…John F. Kennedy was in the White House for less than three years and…Six months after becoming president, JFK had his calamitous meeting with Nikita Khrushchev in Vienna — a meeting The New York Times described as “one of the more self-destructive American actions of the Cold War, and one that contributed to the most dangerous crisis of the nuclear age”…Khrushchev was delighted to discover that the U.S. president was so “weak”…Lyndon Johnson, famously escalated the war in Vietnam simply to prove that the Democrats could be trusted with national security…that war allowed liberals to spend the next half-century denouncing every use of American military force as “another Vietnam”…Jimmy Carter warned Americans about their “inordinate fear of communism”…His most inspired strategic move was to abandon the Shah of Iran, a loyal U.S. ally, which gave rise to the global Islamofascist movement we’re still dealing with today…Before the end of the year, the Islamic lunatics had taken 52 Americans hostage in Tehran…Twice, when Clinton was president, Sudan had offered to turn over bin Laden to the U.S…According to Michael Scheuer, who ran the bin Laden unit at the CIA for many years, Clinton was given eight to 10 chances to kill or capture bin Laden but refused to act…When Obama took office, al Qaida had been routed in Iraq…A few short years into Obama’s presidency — and al-Qaida is back! For purely political reasons, as soon as he became president, Obama removed every last troop from Iraq…So now, another Russian leader is playing cat-and-mouse with an American president — and guess who’s the mouse…

Democrats Running on Excuses

February 19, 2014

In spite of MSNBC’s biased campaign to make “Bridgegate” a momentous issue, polls continue to show that unemployment remains the most important issue for voters. Unless there is a miraculous economic recovery in the next six months, Democrats will have nothing but excuses to campaign on for November’s elections.

Obamacare has been a disaster and many Democrats are trying to distance themselves from it, however, its negative impact on jobs can’t be avoided. After a CBO report estimated a 2 million job loss by 2017 due to Obamacare, panic forced Democrat’s to say that losing jobs “empowers” people to make choices about their lives.

Harry Reid put out the foolish talking point that “…It allows people to get out of a job they’re locked into”. It is an insult to those losing a job to be told they should now feel “empowered” because they are no longer “locked” into gainful employment. Perhaps, they should use this “empowerment” in the voting booth come November.

The CBO report validated the “racist, Obama-hating” predictions that the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) will create a disincentive to work and force many to work fewer hours due to part-time jobs replacing full-time jobs. This, too, brought out a panicky excuse that it will provide more choices, particularly the choice to “not work”. This is so lame it is embarrassing just to hear it.

Speaking of embarrassing, Secretary of State John Kerry is desperately trying to turn voters’ attention away from the poor economy by stirring up fear over man-made “climate change”, once called “global warming” until that began unravelling. He called it our greatest terror threat but he’s going to need excuses for all the failed, dire predictions and contrary data before anyone buys his Al Gore impersonation.

From Chris Matthews blaming the sun for a poor Obama speech to Sebelius blaming arcane insurance terminology for Spanish translation mistakes, excuses are becoming the Democrat platform in the face of administration failure. There will certainly be more as November approaches, but there will be no excuse for the silent majority if they sit home and allow this farce to continue. That would simply be a disaster.

Dizzy From Media Spin

January 14, 2014

“Bridgegate”, as the Christie traffic fiasco is being called, received 17 times more coverage from ABC, NBC, and CBS News in a 24-hour span than the IRS scandal received in 6 months. MSNBC is even going to run a one-hour special to discuss several “theories” about it.

MSNBC’s prescient Mika already provided her theory, stating: “we know Chris Christie and we know he would have known”. She also “knows” what is and isn’t a scandal, saying: “…to bring up Benghazi and the IRS is like flailing for some sort of distraction”. Four dead Americans have become just a distraction.

Bridgegate is a “twofer” for the liberal media. It’s an opportunity to smear a potential presidential candidate threatening Hillary’s chances and it is a substitute for Obama administration scandals that are getting harder and harder to ignore. It even has the additional benefit of keeping continuing negative Obamacare revelations from public awareness.

One of those revelations is that in 2014, 80% of individual costs to health insurance companies between $45,000 and $250,000 will be paid by the government. When insurance is purchased through the government exchanges, private insurance companies are only liable for costs below $45,000. Taxpayers pay the rest. This is not worthy to be a news story.

The continuing takeover by Al Qaida of abandoned Iraq isn’t news, either, except for NBC to tell us that the Iraq War wasn’t worth it. Obama made sure it wasn’t worth it when he failed (deliberately?) to maintain a military presence in Iraq after hastily pulling our troops out. His eagerness to get totally out of Iraq gave new life to defeated Al Qaida forces and they are now back. The media will protect Obama from any blame.

If you don’t like Obama and didn’t vote for him, you are a racist. If you don’t like Hillary and will not vote for her, you are a misogynist. For the media, it’s that simple – and it will be news. The so-called GOP war against women is THE talking point and you will hear it for the next three years as the media prepares to “make history”, again.

You are sure to become dizzy from the spin.

Obama Gave Iraq to Al Qaeda

January 8, 2014

It was always known that Al Qaeda would attempt to fill the void in Iraq if we pulled out, but Obama wanted all U.S. troops, equipment, and bases removed in order to appease his far-left voting base and his own ideology. Iraq is now in serious trouble as Al Qaeda is doing exactly as predicted.

The removal of our ideally situated military bases of operation in the Middle East was overkill in Obama’s withdrawal and it is already proving to be a huge mistake. Secretary of State John Kerry just pledged to help Iraq in its fight against Al Qaeda but was adamant that it wouldn’t include troops. When Iraq asked for help in November, the administration sent a miserly 75 Hellfire missiles and promised (If you like these missiles, you can keep them?) to dispatch drones. So what will Kerry offer now?

Kerry gave no details about the “help” he promised because he has no idea. It was just a sound bite. Offering Air support would be helpful since Iraq has no air force, but with no base of operations, it would be difficult and very costly. Lack of a base in the region will also come back to haunt us if the Middle East explodes, a distinct possibility when Israel finds itself having to stop Iran from going nuclear.

Over 4,400 U.S. troops died in the Iraq War freeing Iraqis from Saddam Hussein. Our complete withdrawal abandoned Iraq to fend for itself when it was not capable of doing so. It would be an understatement to say that our troops are not pleased with this result.

Obama didn’t think about the consequences of abandoning Iraq just as he didn’t think about the consequences of Obamacare. He only thought about winning politically. He gave Iraq to Al Qaeda by following his “superior intelligence” rather than following advice from experts. In the same manner, he is giving away the American Dream with his “transformation of America”.

Please vote in November to begin stopping the damage.

A Week Filled With Denial

September 30, 2013

President Obama lead the way in denial this week, stating that there will be no harm to the economy from Obamacare. This flies in the face of facts that show company lay-offs, freezes on hiring, decreases in full-time employees, and increases in part-time employment due to Obamacare – as well as premium increases.

Obama also brought his denial into the international arena by opening up negotiations with Iran based on obvious lies from the new Iranian president, Hassan Rouhani. This guy promised to stop Iran’s quest for a nuclear weapon – a quest he very recently claimed didn’t even exist. Obama is pretending this is real in the same way he is pretending Syria’s giving up chemical weapons is real.

These denials help Obama keep face and smooth his remaining years in the White House, but they are very dangerous to the entire world. Iran used Obama like a puppet for years, stalling for time to complete manufacture of a nuclear weapon, which is now close at hand. Putin is pulling those same puppet strings, allowing Syria to keep chemical weapons and a lucrative partnership with Russia.

Under Obama’s policies, the United States has lost world influence and grown weaker, but Obama boasted at the UN this week that “the world is safer than it was five years ago” because of his policies. Obama also took credit for helping Putin defuse Syria’s chemical weapon use. Putin erased Obama’s problematic red line and regained previously lost influence in the Middle East through Obama’s bungling, yet, Obama unabashedly pretended it was a personal diplomatic coup.

Of course, the UN is the ideal place for pretense. The UN climate panel just proclaimed that it is “extremely likely” that climate change is man-made, based on a new report it received. Conveniently, the panel ignored everything in the report that pointed otherwise, and there is much that does, such as: No increase in global temperature in the past 15 years; an increase rather than decrease in Antarctic ice; admission of inaccurate models, and many other findings that do not point to man-made global warming.

The best denial of the week, however, goes to Sheikh Saleh bin Saad al-Lohaidan, a Saudi Arabian cleric who defended banning women from driving because it “…could have negative physiological impacts as functional and physiological medical studies show that it automatically affects the ovaries and pushes the pelvis upwards…” This doesn’t sound quite like president Obama, but it does sound a lot like a UN interpretation of a medical report.

Putin 2, Assad 1, Obama 0, UN -2

September 11, 2013

The Middle East scores are in and Putin takes the lead handily from a fumbling Obama while the UN continues to be a useless waste of time and money. Syria’s Assad gets away with the use of chemical weapons and solidifies partnership with the clear winner, Putin.

In a speech to the nation, Obama explained why force against Syria is necessary and why he is asking Congress for approval. He also expounded on his personal reluctance to use force. Then, he postponed the Congressional vote to use the force he just told us is necessary, based on the hope that a Hail Mary pass from Putin will remove this distasteful burden from his shoulders and allow him to concentrate on transforming America.

Obama also told us that the use of chemical weapons by Syria broke international law and cannot be ignored. Where, then, is the UN? Isn’t this one of the reasons for its existence? Do we need any more proof that the UN is a useless organization.

Putin took an off-hand remark by Kerry, that Syria could avoid an attack by giving up its chemical weapons, and used it as a means of returning Russia to a leadership role in the Middle East, one that was lost for decades. Syria will follow Putin’s lead, pretending to give up its chemical weapons, because Russia is its only friend – and it will stop a military strike.

Furthering Russia’s influence and leadership in the Middle East, Putin is now going to renew a previously cancelled offer to supply Iran with air defense missile systems and a nuclear reactor. This puts Iran and Syria in Putin’s pocket. How long before Egypt sees the way the wind is blowing?

Obama’s handling of the Middle East removed us from Iraq without leaving even one military base (which would have come in handy right now); gave Iran more time to develop nuclear weapons; ignored the turmoil in Egypt; alienated Israel; reduced our influence; and emboldened Syria to use chemical weapons.

Unbelievably, Obama will now be praised by the left for handling the Syria crisis without military involvement and be given credit for Putin’s solution. Embarrassment over his bumbling lack of leadership will be forgotten and he will be put back up on the pedestal. How sweet that blindness must be. For the rest of us there is only disgust.
