Obama’s Ridiculous Reaction

Monday, June 13th, 2016

I really wanted to take a break from politics and talk about something else besides radical Islamic terrorism and how liberals are giving in to them, but the recent attack in Orlando and the ridiculous reactions by POTUS and liberal minds across the globe leave me no choice. The entire situation reminds me of “The Emperor’s New Clothes”

For those who are unfamiliar with the story, An Emperor hires two weavers who promise him the finest, best suit of clothes from a fabric invisible to anyone who is unfit for his position or “hopelessly stupid”. Finally the weavers report that the suit is finished, they mime dressing him and the Emperor marches in procession before his nation. The townsfolk play along with the pretense, not wanting to appear unfit for their positions or stupid. Then a child in the crowd, too young to understand the desirability of keeping up the pretense, blurts out that the Emperor is wearing nothing at all and the cry is taken up by others. The Emperor suspects the assertion is true, but continues the procession.”

A radical Islamic terrorist walks into a restaurant in Tel Aviv or a bar in Orlando and murders innocent people. The reaction is anger and then there is a cry not to define this as a radical Islamic terrorist attack. The Mayor of Tel Aviv blames Israel and POTUS won’t even mention the words Islamic terror because telling the truth is not as important as faking like he sees the emperors clothes.

The terrorist was interviewed by the FBI TWICE(!!) for radical Islamic activity but allowed to legally acquire a gun because to refuse his constitutional right to bear arms based on his radical Islamic views alone would be considered racist in the liberal mind . Careful about pointing out that this was an Islamic terrorist attack, they will make fun of you for not seeing the Emperor’s invisible clothes. It doesn’t matter the terrorist swore allegiance to ISIS (that’s ISLAMIC State for those who were wondering), or that he screamed Allah Akhbar before shooting up 50 people, the liberals are still applauding the Emperor’s new clothes and call this a gun problem! The emperor is walking around as naked as he was on the day he was born, but if you dare say so, you are called a racist and deemed unfit for the enlightened “libertard” culture that is running around protecting those who want you dead!

THE EMPEROR IS %^& NAKED!

I will happily be that little kid to let the emperor know he is stark naked and his not so flattering figure is putting us all in danger!

Islamic terror is hitting all over the world! The left in Israel that are advocating making deals with terrorists as well as the liberals in the US or Europe that refuse to admit there is a problem called Islamic terror are part of the problem!

This is about gun control? REALLY!

Perhaps after 9/11 we should have outlawed planes!

Who finally killed the terrorist in Orlando?

Who killed the terrorist in TA? I believe it was someone with a gun!

If the bar would not have been run by liberals who decided to make it a gun free zone, perhaps there would be much less than 50 innocent people murdered and the terrorist would have been sent to his paradise much earlier.

The Muslims I know have publicly bashed those who carried out these attacks, but where is the vocal majority? Where are the mass Muslim demonstrations in Orlando against terrorists who are using their religion to murder people? Where were the mass Israeli Arab demonstrations in Israel against the terror attack in TA?

Hillary Clinton Makes History as First Major Party Woman Nominee, But Bernie Sanders Refuses to Quit Race

Wednesday, June 8th, 2016

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton clinched the Democratic presidential nomination Tuesday night, making American history as the first woman to lead the ticket of a major political party in a national race.

Clinton’s rival, Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, is however nowhere near to capitulating, even though he finally lost the California primary after what was, admittedly a very tough fight.

Speaking to supporters in Santa Monica towards the end of the evening while still waiting for final primary results Sanders said in a cracked voice from the podium: “The struggle continues. Next Tuesday we continue the fight in the last primary in Washington DC!” (He is under pressure from the Democratic Party leadership to ‘let go, already,’ so they can pull together the delegates for the fight against Donald Trump.)

In response to his fiery passion, the packed house roared, shaking and waving blue-and-white signs that read, “A Future to Believe In.”

“We are going …we are going …we are going to fight hard …,” Sanders went on, his weakening voice making it clear that his campaign has already been anything but easy.

“We are going to fight hard to win the primary in Washington DC…” he said stubbornly, his voice hoarse from shouting, “and then we take our fight for social, economic, racial and environmental justice to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania!

But even Sanders knows the fight is almost over. His campaign managers and strategists have been discussing this issue for weeks. And he didn’t survive the U.S. Senate with a halo of white locks by ignoring reality, either. He told his supporters he had called Clinton to congratulate her on her victories. Although he won the primaries in Montana and North Dakota, the California loss made it clear that time is running out.

“I am … I am pretty good in arithmetic and I know that the fight in front of us is a very, very steep fight,” he added, “but we will continue to fight for every vote and every delegate we can get,” he told supporters. Sanders is scheduled to return home to Burlington, Vermont on Wednesday before he heads to Washington DC on Thursday.

Both he and Hillary Clinton received calls from President Barack Obama, with congratulations to the two of them on their campaigns.

Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, was rarin’ to go as she addressed her backers in Brooklyn, New York.

She clearly had much preparation ranging from a raft of speech writers, handlers, beauticians, hair and fashion stylists, makeup artists, media coach and PR advisers.

All had coalesced for this moment.

“Thanks to you, we’ve reached a milestone,” Clinton began in warm, measured tones.

(Applause)

“The first time … the first time in our nation’s history that a woman will be a major party’s nominee,” she said, nodding her head, eyes shining with just a slight glimmer of tears, hair carefully, conservatively coifed for the occasion.

Presidentially. Wisely, she wore understated makeup – for once, even her lipstick wasn’t loud.

“Tonight’s … (here she hesitated to give the audience more time to applaud longer – and they obliged, of course) tonight’s victory is not about one person. It belongs to generations of women and men who struggled and sacrificed and made this moment possible.

“In our country (ed.- an unstated reference to the fact that in many other countries there have already been female heads of state; for Jews in the audience it undoubtedly called up the image of Israel’s late Prime Minister Golda Meir) it started right here in New York, in a place called Seneca Falls, in 1824 when a small but determined group of women and men came together with the idea that women deserve equal rights and they set it forth in something called the Declaration of Sentiments – and it was the first time in human history that that kind of declaration occurred.

“So we all owe so much to those who came before. And tonight belongs to all of you,” she smiled.

Then she raised her voice, calling for unity within the party – and yes, from Bernie Sanders too, aiming straight for the jugular.

“I want to congratulate Senator Sanders for the extraordinary campaign that he ran,” she said.

Her next compliment was a direct shot designed to remind voters that he is probably too old to have really been considered a serious contender for a presidential run. It was also a quick slap at his largest support base, discrediting the youth of America with an emphasis on their lack of experience. But with all of that, she tried to heal the breach as well.

Labour MP ‘Outed’ Over Anti-Semitic Posts on Facebook

Tuesday, April 26th, 2016

British Labour MP Naz Shah resigned Tuesday from her unpaid post as an aide after a virulently anti-Israel post and one that was plain anti-Semitic, both written on Facebook in 2014, were highlighted this week on the Guido Fawkes political website.

She apologized publicly Tuesday (April 26) on Twitter for both.

She was careful, however, not to resign from her position on the parliament’s Home Affairs Select Committee – which is set to investigate rising anti-Semitism in Britain.

Anti-Zionist Facebook post shared and highlighted in 2014 by Muslim British Labour MP Naz Shah.

The first offensive post was displayed within the context of an article on the Guido Fawkes political website that explained Shah had “argued Israel should be ‘relocated’ to America and praised the ‘transportation costs’ of deporting Israeli Jews out of the Middle East.” (italics courtesy of Guido Fawkes site) “As these stories go, it is at the more controversial end of the scale…” the writer noted.

Shah had shared a graphic showing an outline of the State of Israel, superimposed on to a map of the United States with the headline “Solution for Israel-Palestine Conflict – Relocate Israel into United States.” The graphic adds:

• “America has plenty of land to accommodate a 51st state;
• The transportation cost will be less than 3 years of defense spending; Palestinians will get their land and life back;
• Middle East will again be peaceful without foreign interference;
• Oil prices will go down, inflation will go down, whole world will be happy.”

Shah added a comment to the graphic: “Problem solved and save u bank charges for 3 billion pounds you transfer yearly.” In the comments section she wrote: “Only problem with that is Israel would need to return all the land and farms it has stolen and give the Palestinians rights which is not possible.” She then added: “Therefore I will tweet Barack Obama and David Cameron and put this idea to them? Save them pocket money?”

All of her 2014 Facebook posts have since been deleted, prompting one to wonder just what else she had opined during that year in which Israel had been forced into another defensive counter terror war with Hamas in Gaza.

For example, Shah had also posted a link on Facebook to a newspaper poll asking whether Israel had committed war crimes, urging her constituents to vote “yes.” Her post screamed in capital letters, “URGENT ACTION… WILL TAKE TEN SECONDS (link) The Jews are rallying to the poll at the bottom and there is now 87% disagreeing and 13% agreeing. CLICK “YES” I AGREE WITH JOHN PRESCOTT THAT ISRAEL IS COMMITTING WAR CRIMES.” FORWARD ON TO ALL CONTACTS RIGHT NOW.”

As the Guido Fawkes site noted, she had also tweeted a link to a blog post comparing Zionism to Al Qaeda, and accusing Zionists of “grooming” Jews to “exert political influence at the highest levels of public office.”

Shah, who is Muslim, was elected to the British parliament the next year, in 2015.  She defeated incumbent George Galloway, who had declared his district off-limits to all Israelis, including tourists.

As she stepped down Tuesday from her unpaid position as Parliamentary Private Secretary to shadow chancellor John McDonnell, the virulently anti-Israel post and a another deeply anti-Semitic one were both made public.

It was the British Jewish Chronicle who had published that second post, reporting that in August 2014, Shah had tweeted the link to a blog called ‘Walk Together.’

On that blog an article entitled “Colonization, Israel, Palestinian resistance and…”, claimed Zionism was “like Al Qaeda.” This was the article that claimed Zionism is used to “groom” Jews to “exert political influence at the highest levels of public office.”

When the Home Affairs Select Committee publishes its report on its investigation into Britain’s rising anti-Semitism, the findings should be most illuminating.

Perhaps the committee members can begin with a mirror as an initial exercise.

A Labour MP said earlier this month the party is starting to look as if it doesn’t care about prejudice against Jewish people.

“We have now got a problem where too many of our Jewish members and people out there in the country think the Labour Party is apathetic to anti-Semitism,” said MP Wes Streeting.

Former Labour parliamentary candidate Vicki Kirby was suspended twice last month over tweets in which she called Hitler a “Zionist God” and said Jews have “big noses.”

Prominent British politician Lord Michael Abraham Levy sounded the alarm in March that anti-Semitism is rising in the Labour Party. Levy has threatened to leave the fold if something is not done to stem the tide.

The Jewish peer has been a chief fundraiser for Labour, and is a longtime friend of former Labour Prime Minister Tony Blair.

WikiLeaks Reveals American NSA Snooping on Netanyahu-Berlusconi Talks

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2016

In 2010, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu placed a phone call to Italy’s President Silvio Berlusconi to ask for help in dealing with U.S. President Barack Obama over tensions regarding housing plans in Jerusalem. While Jerusalem’s line was secure, it is suspected that Netanyahu knew that the Italian’s line wasn’t secure and the Americans were probably listening in.

The call happened at one of the times when PM Netanyahu was receiving the silent treatment from President Obama and it appears Netanyahu used the tapped line to get his message across to the White House. which was otherwise refusing to communicate with him at all at that point.

On Monday night, the WikiLeaks website revealed that the U.S. National Security Agency was tapping the line and listening in to the entire conversation.

As a matter of fact, the NSA listened in on calls with three Italian officials, including the national security adviser and the president’s personal adviser.

“Netanyahu pleaded with Berlusconi to help him deal with Obama,” according to the website. The intercepted communication showed “Berlusconi promised to assist helping Israel in mending damaged relationship with the U.S.”

Here’s the original NSA text, unabridged, in the document released on the WikiLeaks website: (bold added for emphasis)

Italy Would Help Israel Mend Relations With U.S. (TS//SI//OC/REL TO USA, FVEY)

(TS//SI//OC/REL TO USA, FVEY) Israel has reached out to Europe, including Italy, for help in smoothing out the current rift in its relations with the United States, according to Italian diplomatic reporting of 13 March. Speaking with Italian Prime Minister (PM) Silvio Berlusconi, Israeli PM Binyamin Netanyahu insisted that the trigger for the dispute–Israel’s decision to build 1,600 homes in contested East Jerusalem–was totally in keeping with national policy dating back to the administration of Golda Meir, and blamed this mishandling on a government official with poor political sensitivity. The objective now, Netanyahu said, is to keep the Palestinians from using this issue as a pretext to block a resumption of talks or to advance unrealistic claims that could risk sinking the peace negotiations altogether. Continuing, he asserted that the tension has only been heightened by the absence of direct contact between himself and the U.S. President. In response, Berlusconi promised to put Italy at Israel’s disposal in helping mend the latter’s ties with Washington. Other Israeli officials, meanwhile, believed that this tiff goes far beyond merely the question of the construction plans, marking instead the lowest point in U.S.-Israeli relations in memory.

Survey: 55% – 73% of White Christian Americans Reject Muslim Values

Thursday, November 19th, 2015

(JNi.media) The new Public Religion Research Institute poll, aptly titled “Anxiety, Nostalgia, and Mistrust: Findings from the 2015 American Values Survey,” released Tuesday, points out that a majority of American Christians believe Muslim values are at odds with American values and way of life.

Perceptions of Islam have turned more negative over the past few years. Today, 56% of Americans agree that the values of Islam are at odds with American values and way of life, while 41% disagree. Opinion on Islam’s compatibility with American values varies greatly by religious beliefs. 73% of white evangelical Protestants believe Islam is at odds with American values, compared with 63% of white mainline Protestants, 55% of black Protestants, 61% of Catholics and 41% of the religiously unaffiliated. In 2011, Americans were still about evenly divided in their views of Islam: 47% agreed, 48% disagreed it was at odds with American values.

With less than one year to go until the 2016 general election, the mood of the American people is marked by anxiety and mistrust, concludes the PRRI poll: more than 72% believe that the country is still in a recession, as they did in 2014. Americans are divided down the middle, 49-49% on whether America’s best days are ahead of us or behind them. They are pessimistic and anxious about crime, racial tensions, and immigration.

And they don’t trust Muslims. More than 60% of white Protestants and Catholics, 55% of African-American Protestants, and 56% of Americans overall see a split between American and Muslim values, up from 47% in 2011 and 2014.

The nonpartisan Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI) conducted the 2015 American Values Survey among 2,695 Americans between September 11 and October 4, 2015. It measures public opinion about the economy, racial discrimination, the criminal justice system, trust in public institutions, perception of the Tea Party, the relationship between religious affiliation and political attitudes, views of immigrants, and how demographic changes impact the cultural landscape in the country.

Compared with a few years ago, Americans report less tolerance when encountering non-English speaking immigrants. 48% of Americans say they are bothered when they come into contact with immigrants who speak little or no English, compared with 40% in 2012. 63% of white working-class Americans say they feel bothered when they come into contact with immigrants who do not speak English, compared with 43% of white college-educated Americans.

73% of Donald Trump’s supporters say they are bothered by encounters with immigrants who speak little English. 69% of Trump supporters rate immigration as a critical issue to them personally, compared with only 50% of supporters of other Republican candidates.

The survey Interviews were conducted in English and Spanish between September 11 and October 4, 2015 among a random sample of 2,695 U.S. adults (age 18 and up). Interviews were conducted both online and by telephone. The margin of error for the survey is +/- 2.6% at the 95% level of confidence.

Thousands Show ‘Zero Tolerance 4 Terror!’ in Times Square

Monday, October 19th, 2015

It is a pure Jewish concept that the best way to overcome evil is with positive energy — and Jews are great at “rocking out” when it comes to combining that punch with pizzazz.

Thousands of young New Yorkers gathered in Times Square late Sunday to show their solidarity with Israel as part of the ‘Zero Tolerance 4 Terrorism’ movement.

Thousands were at the 'Zero Tolerance 4 Terror' rally in Times Square.

Thousands were at the ‘Zero Tolerance 4 Terror’ rally in Times Square.

“Let’s allow our voice of outrage to be heard loud and clear; Never again! Jewish blood is not cheap,” proclaimed the group’s Facebook page prior to the rally.

In response, demonstrators from all walks of life came to stand together with Israel and celebrate the Jewish State as a panoply of speakers, Jewish entertainment groups, musicians and vocalists took the stage.

'What part of 'Death to America, Death to Jews' don't you understand?' read one sign.

‘What part of ‘Death to America, Death to Jews’ don’t you understand?’ read one sign.

The pulsating music kept the atmosphere positive and energetic long into the night.

On Seventh Avenue and 48th Street, a pro-Palestinian Authority counter-demonstration did its best to raise a little action against the Jewish energy, but it was like bailing an ocean with a teacup from a raft.

Slogans included “Free Free Palestine” “Intifada Intifada” “Long Live The Intifada” shouted by young women wearing jihabs on stage.

Pro-Palestinian Arab signs read, "No Justice, No Peace" -- a slogan stolen from recent Black rioters across the United States, taken originally from the mantra chanted by Black rioters in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn during the 3-day pogrom in Aug. 1991.

Despite the small numbers the signs that were brandished by those who attended the counter-rally were troubling. They signaled — as in the past — the joining of two completely disparate causes. Palestinian Arab terrorists have once again managed to hijack the civil rights struggle of people of color in the United States.

Obama Cashes in on Separating Israel from American Jews’ Concerns

Monday, August 31st, 2015

Obama knows how to capitalize on the bulk of American Jews, who want Israel to be a nice Jewish boy that doesn’t make them feel uncomfortable

President Barack Obama declared that American Jews’ concerns are like those of Afro-Americans and other Americans, indicating that Israel is not one of those worries.

He unsurprisingly chose the left-wing and secular Forward to be the first Jewish newspaper ever to interview him.

Having embraced J Street and trying to manipulate public opinion into believing that it is speaks for mainstream American Jews, his choice of The Forward was natural. The newspaper for more than a century was known as “The Jewish Daily Forward.”
This year it became simply “The Forward.”

Its editor Jane Eisner told the Observer earlier this year that the newspaper has been trying “to understand who we are, who are readers are, who are readers ought to be….What we know is that most American Jews today are living a very pluralistic life—there’s a lot of intermarriage and interfaith relationships.”

The same Jane Eisner on Friday interviewed President Obama, who also likes to see American Jews as any other hyphenated ethnic community that views their old homeland as a fond memory that it relives, in the case of American Jews, by eating gefilte fish.

The president knows, as Eisner indicated to the Observer, that American Jews are a vanishing through an assimilation rate approaching 70 percent and that the number of Jews in the United States rises only by changing the definition of a Jew to embrace pluralism, the melting pot that is supposed to erase any outward indication that belies the belief in Mom, Flag and Apple Pie.

He knows that the hard-core pro-Israel Jews, those who view Judea and Samaria as a part of Israel, Jerusalem as the capital, and a strong Israel good for the security United States, are a minority.

Deep down in the interview with Eisner, President Obama said:

American Jews, like African-Americans or any other cohort of Americans, have a wide range of concerns. They care about student loans; they care about housing; they care about poverty; they care about women’s health issues. And so it’s not as if the American Jewish community makes decisions solely on the basis of a single issue

The “single issue,” of course, is Israel. He does not, nor do most American Jews, think too much about Israel, especially when it comes to the nuclear agreement with Iran, which was the focus of his comments to the Forward.

He explained:

I do get disturbed sometimes when I hear folks suggesting that those who oppose the deal are pro-Israel. We’re all pro-Israel. The issue is, how do we solve this very particular problem of making sure Iran doesn’t have a nuclear weapon….

I think we have to steer away from incendiary language that suggests that either those who are in favor of the deal are appeasing Iran or, conversely, that those who are opposed to the deal are not thinking about America’s interest.

If anyone has used incendiary language, it is President Obama, who has implied, as Eisner reported that she told him, “that even some of his supporters say that he has contributed to the incendiary language by implying that opponents of the deal are ‘warmongers.'”

She said that was the only time in the interview “that I saw him bristle and his back stiffen.” He replied:

What I said is that if we reject the deal, the logical conclusion is that if we want to prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon, military strikes will be the last option remaining at some point. It may not be under my administration; it might be under the next one. And that is something that has to be taken into account.

She did not respond, “What about more sanctions instead of war?
