The fate of millions rests within the presidents word and deed. Good or bad, the relationship between the U.S. and Israel holds the middle east in balance. When our bond is weak and conflict ridden our enemies are emboldened. Iran, who has a stated a mission to annihilate Israel, is building nukes. Pakistan, a country manufactured to be occupied by a group who could not get along with anybody has nukes. They watch as our administration swings from self-aggrandizement and petty squabbling with Israel. If you’re gonna lunge, now would be the time to jump. And baby the mid-east is jumpin’.
A leader who has lost the respect of his people will not be respected by anybody. Sorry, hard fact. The world is not populated with classmates at Harvard, no one cares that you’re well hung in the frontal lobes. Lectures are not incantations, you cannot change reality by any application of rhetoric. The visceral will have it’s due. Time, energy spent, sacrifice such are the dues. They (this is embarrassingly obvious) have not been paid. It’s a character thing, he will never be able to pony up what’s necessary. This is his moment, and he doesn’t have the stuff. He and his anti-Semite godfather, Jimmy Carter, should go on tour after this term is up.
Something more grown up will do. You know, behavior that is not limbic system thrashing about. Engage your Neo-cortex Oh! Captain!! Use diplomacy, compromise, show interest! Have some dignity ya dope! Think of the betterment of the whole, not your scorecard of bad acts in bad relationships.
Whoever called Netanyahu a chicken-shit should get his papers. Of course that’s kind difficult for the exec when you are saying the same things that your expected to fire others over.
A TRICKLE-DOWN ATTITUDE OF ANTI-SEMITISM IN THE ADMINISTRATION?
HUBERUS = BAD….INCOMPETANCE = JUST AS BAD
CAN IT BE THAT COPY-CAT DECAPITATION IS HAPPENING IN AMERICA?
Winston Smith is the protagonist in George Orwell’s (Eric Blair) novel, 1984. It is the story of a beaureaudrone who rewrote history for the government. The government is a nightmare of repression and mind control.In Winston Smiths world, the subtle terror of having your private thoughts plumbed at the behest of some omniscient “Big Brother” hovered about each interaction. That was a novel. Eric Blair wrote it about some distant time and place where such outrageous things happen. When I read the book back in the 60’s I could not conceive of the American spirit so ruined that such things would evolve. Even with the Nam debacle raging and the counter-culture demonstrating and students taking over college campuses, Blairs vision seemed to far away in time and, of course, never would it happen HERE! Well guess what…IT HAPPENED That place is here. That time is now. Let us linger and contemplate…THE TIME IS RIGHT NOW, THE PLACE, YOUR ADDRESS. In the land of the first amendment what you say (and commensurately, what you think), will get you busted. Right now. Hooduh thunk it!
P.S. maybe you shouldn’t think about it.
You could get in trouble.
Well, you got it all. You definitely got what you prayed for. Black top cop, (Atty. Gen. Eric Holder), Black President of the United States of America, (You know who), Clinton’s welfare reform carved up, etc., etc., and you still don’t have a job. You wonder who he is lying to when he says things are getting better. Well maybe he is lying to everybody. Or maybe he is just lying to himself. It is definitely heartening to see that some who are waking up on the Democratic plantation don’t like it. I am thankful that this group of men have the courage to admit they have been duped. The snake oil salesman is disappearing in the distance and you just got the shits (from the snake oil he just sold you).
WELFARE CREATES JOBS! ….RIGHT?
Right now she is leaning over the edge of a cloud, looking into the abyss and smiling at the big macho ISIS rats she personally sent to hell! Yeah baby!
A truly amazing aspect of Obama’s quest to destroy the United States is the fact that he can shred Americas foreign relations and not even offer up a defense. In his inaugural address, (virtually the first act as president), Obama gave special dispensation to Islam above all other nations on the planet. The only salient aspect of Islam (The religion on the whole is a contrivance of second-hand renderings of other, established religions strained thru Bedouin thuggery ) that marked it for special dispensation was the fact that Islam is killing more people than anybody else. ON THE OTHER HAND: Obama’s relationship with Israel has been conflicted from before day one. Obama makes his judgments about Israel not from experience, but from a wellspring of anti-Semitism issuing from progressives in academia, the limo libs of the Hampton’s, and others of the clam chowda Libs of the northeastern seaboard. This is an existential threat that worries Israel more than anything based on real behavior. Israel in particular is in a position to fear ideological bigotry. It was an ideology that subsumed their near annihilation at the hands of the Germans back in WWII. Ideological bigotry resists change, and it can be ginned into violent action sans evidence rather quickly. The last time a geopolitical chemistry like this happened was during the ‘Jimmy Carter Incident’ back In the late ’70s. The arab nations react to Israel in a strained relationship with the U.S. like somebody just shot off the starting gun at a demolition derby. The middle east just combusts.
The symbiosis between Israel and America is the gyroscope of the Arab world. When the gyro quits the Arab world reacts. Violence, the only coping mechanism that is trusted is prevailed upon. The insurrections and wars begin.
Ex. Royal Canadian Mounty Ret. and Sgt. at Arms of the Canadian Parliament, Kevin Vickers got a rousing standing ovation (and desk-lid banging) from the Canadian Parliament. He carried the moment with dignity. No ‘spiking the ball’ behavior of self congratulation.His deportment, restraint and humility spoke simple elegance to the masculine mission “to stand in harms way”. The moment was historic.
About five days ago ISIS sent out the call for a general fatwah to kill infidels “anyway you could”. One way mentioned was automotive attack. Carried out by a Canadian Jihadi who ran down two soldiers killing one and injuring the other. Essentially a general ZOMBIE call to arms has been made. And they are coming out of the walls.
A common reaction by ‘moderate muslims’ I have contact with is “No way! I can’t condone such terrorist acts at all,…ever! “But I understand the reasons they have for doing such things.” Yeah, you caught it. The last statement. The equivocation. It says a lot if you reframe the situation a little: So here we go:..
A statement I may make:
I am not unusually violent by nature. I am far from being comfortable with killing. I remain strong and cognizant of my place in my world. And one on one I still can aquit myself well. But as far as defending the realm? I don’t have to worry. That’s what the Army and air force do. Ya know. So I don’t have to.
For some (not all of course),Muslims Al Qaida is their army and air force. They get radical so Mr. Moderate Muslim doesn’t have to.!
I am a moderate American. Even when I am looking at gun camera footage of little 37mm blossoms gobbling up the little running terrorists. Because the guy flying the Apache is doing my killing for me. And I, a moderate American, hope he is a really good killer. GO! TEAM!
