Trump Calls Obama an ‘Amateur’ and Vows to Re-Negotiate Deal

Wednesday, September 9th, 2015

Donald Trump said Wednesday that President Barack Obama’s nuclear agreement with Iran was his “amateur hour” and that the deal will be re-negotiated if the real-estate mogul is elected to the White House.

Trump wrote in an op-ed in USA Today:

It is hard to believe a president of the United States would actually put his name on an agreement with the terrorist state Iran that is so bad, so poorly constructed and so terribly negotiated that it increases uncertainty and reduces security for America and our allies, including Israel.
It was amateur hour for those charged with striking this deal with Iran, demonstrating to the world, yet again, the total incompetence of our president and politicians. It appears we wanted a deal at any cost rather than following the advice of Ronald Reagan and walking away because ‘no deal is better than a bad deal.’

Trump assumed he will be the next president of the United States and said that he “will renegotiate with Iran — right after I enable the immediate release of our American prisoners and ask Congress to impose new sanctions that stop Iran from having the ability to sponsor terrorism around the world.”

He will be one of the most boisterous and photographed leaders at an anti-deal rally Wednesday at the Capitol.

The Republican candidate’s continuing popularity, in the face of all predictions that he is a passing fad, is scaring the hell out of challengers, who no longer can ignore him and have been forced into criticizing him, giving him even more publicity and attention.

Jeb Bush said Trump cannot be trusted to deal with Iran, and he posted a video of Trump praising then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Bush’s going on the attack of past declarations is one of the weakest possible strategies. The GOP candidates are going to have to do a lot of soul-searching and come up with the something better in order to stop the Trump train.

Biden Tells Atlanta Jews ‘Honest to God, I Don’t Know If I Will Run’ [video]

Friday, September 4th, 2015

Vice President Joe Biden told a packed Conservative synagogue in Atlanta Thursday night that the biggest factor that will determine if runs for the White House is whether his family can handle it.

His speech was part an Obama-Biden blitz to convince Jews to back the nuclear deal with Iran, which now has enough backing in the Senate to defeat an opposition attempt to override a presidential veto if Congress rejects the deal.

The biggest question on everyone’s mind was not what Biden had to say about “ObamaDeal” but rather if he will run. He answered questions from the audience, including one about putting his hat in the ring, and said:

Honest to God answer is I just don’t know

The most relevant factor in my decision is whether I and my family have the emotional energy to run.

Some people might think that is not appropriate. But unless I can go to my party and the American people and say that I am able to devote my whole heart and my whole soul to this endeavor, it would not be appropriate.

And everybody talks about the other factors — the other people in the race, whether I can raise the money and whether I can put together an organization. That’s not the factor. The factor is, ‘Can I do it? Can my family undertake an arduous commitment that I would be proud to undertake under ordinary circumstances?’

His circumstances are far from ordinary. His son Beau Biden, who was considering running for governor of Delaware, died of brain cancer last May.

The Vice President mentioned a previous tragedy, the death of his first wife and daughter in an auto accident in 1972, in his speech at the Ahavat Achim synagogue. Biden said:

I know from previous experience after my wife and daughter … there’s no way to put a timetable to it.

“If I can reach that conclusion that we can do it in a fashion that would still make it viable, I would not hesitate to do it. But I have to be honest with you and everyone who’s come to me, I can’t look you straight in the eye and tell you I can do it. That’s as honest as I can be.

Considering unfavorable polls of Hillary Clinton when it comes to honesty, Biden is an appealing alternative to the former Secretary of State and to Bernie Sanders, whose popularity has soared in the polls.

Sanders’ success reflects a large sector of the population that is fed up with “establishment political,” but as the Democratic nominee for president. he would leave the Democratic party more vulnerable to a loss to the Republican candidate, assuming the GOP nominee will be someone other than Donald Trump.

Pro-Israel Carson Breathing Down Neck of Pro-Israel Trump

Sunday, August 30th, 2015

A new poll released on Saturday shows that two solidly pro-Israel candidates, Donald Trump and Dr. Ben Carson, are almost tied for the Republican presidential nomination.

Trump has been leading all of the polls both in Iowa and elsewhere, but Carson has sneaked up on the real estate mogul whose mouth so far is far stronger than his policy outlook outside of immigration.

Both men are solidly pro-Israel but their real attraction to voters, fed up with the establishment, is that neither of them have a background in politics.

Jews make up only 0.2 percent of Iowa’s population, and most of them live in Des Moines, where 59 percent of the city’s voters backed President Barack Obama in 2012. It can be assumed that most of the Jews were in the Obama camp, and it is questionable if they will vote for a Republican in 2016.

But the non-Jews lap up Trump and Carson’s tough talk, even though Carson is black in a state where blacks comprise only 3.3 percent of the population and Hispanics only 5.5 percent.

The Bloomberg/Des Moines Register survey gave Trump 23 percent support, compared with 18 percent for Trump. No one else even comes close. Third and fourth-ranked are Scott Walker and Ted Cruz, each with only 8 percent.

Perhaps the most pro-Israel of them all, if that can be measured by supporting Israeli sovereignty in Judea and Samaria, is Mike Huckabee. He has only 4 percent support in the survey.

Israel obviously is not the topic on the minds of Iowans, but the plain-talk attitude of Trump and Carson, neither of whom are too concerned about being politically correct, have no room for the “peace process” and the Palestinian Authority agenda.

The president of the polling company that carried out the survey, J. Ann Selzer, told Bloomberg:

Trump and Carson, one bombastic and the other sometimes soft-spoken, could hardly be more different in their outward presentations.

Yet they’re both finding traction because they don’t seem like politicians and there’s a strong demand for that right now.

Carson is a higher-profile Christian than Trump, which may be one reason why he is gaining support in the state has a large number of Evangelicals.

However, Carson still has a long way to go to catch up with Trump on a national basis. The average of polls, as tallied by RealClearPolitics, puts Trump at the top with 23.5 percent support. Carson is in second place but with only 10.3 percent.

Carson visited Israel late last year and paid a visit to the Western Wall.

Official PA Media Calls Huckabee ‘Inane Creature’ and ‘Wicked Man’

Saturday, August 29th, 2015

The Palestinian Authority did not bite the hand that feeds it. It amputated it, but the United States still finds a way to nourish anti-American hatred.

Its official daily has slandered the United States as a country that “enslaves Hispanics,” and it libeled Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee as a “wicked, despicable man,” according to a Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) translation and publication of the report.

Huckabee visited Israel two weeks ago and said that all of Judea and Samaria belongs to Israel.

Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, the official Palestinian Authority daily, responded with an op-ed written by its former editor-in-chief, Hafez Al-Barghouti, who writes regularly for the daily.

Following are excerpts of the translation provided by PMW from the article published in Arabic, beginning with trashing Donald Trump as a “swindler.”

After the statements of the aged teenager, the swindler and realtor, the billionaire, the rabid [Donald] Trump, in which he called to transfer the Palestinian people from the [West] Bank to Puerto Rico, another Republican candidate, Mike Huckabee, made a pilgrimage to Israel to emphasize his support for settlement in the West Bank.

This inane creature…said that it is not possible to push the peace process as long as there is incitement in Palestinian schools. This jellylike man ignores the burning of children, as if those who burned them, the settlers, learned the foundations of good ethics and human dignity….

This wicked, despicable man [Huckabee] came to protect them and their settlements, as if to provide them with matches to practice their hobby of burning, blocking roads, chopping down trees, and harassment of the rooted Canaanite Palestinian, who carved its letters in the stones of this land before any religion.

Huckabee is also a settler, and it is possible that the US is the biggest settlement country, since it was established on the ruins of the original inhabitants, wiped out millions of them, enslaved millions of Blacks, and today enslaves millions of Hispanics in the same manner.

Barghouti concluded by suggesting that Trump and Huckabee might “carry the genes of settlement and racism and haven’t yet gotten rid of them.

Congressional Research Service wrote in July 2014:

Since the establishment of limited Palestinian self-rule in the West Bank and Gaza Strip in the mid-1990s, the U.S. government has committed approximately $5 billion in bilateral assistance to the Palestinians, who are among the world’s largest per capita recipients of international foreign  aid.



Trump and Cruz Together to Fight Iran Deal in DC on Sept. 9

Thursday, August 27th, 2015

On Wednesday, Sept. 9, there will be a massive rally in Washington, D.C. to encourage legislators to vote against the Nuclear Iran Deal.

Rabbis will be flying in from all over the country, and Jewish and Christian Zionist groups are working together to make the event as powerful and productive as possible.

Word is just out that not only will presidential contender Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) be present at the event to talk about the dangers of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, but so will his fellow contender Donald Trump!

Trump announced his plan to attend the event during a campaign appearance in South Carolina, according to ABC News.

Cruz aides said that the Texas senator invited Trump to join him at the Capitol Hill event.

Debate on the JCPOA is expected to begin in Congress when legislators return from recess on Sept. 8.

There has been speculation that the vote on the deal may take place on the ominous date of Sept. 11.


Pro-Israel Howard Stern Says Trump Will Be President

Tuesday, August 25th, 2015

SiriusXM radio host Howard Stern told listeners Monday that Donald Trump will be the next president of the United States.


Here is his explanation:

I’ll tell you why I think he’s going to be the nominee: He’s proven that no matter what he says, people dig him.

[Voters} hate illegal immigrants but they just feel funny saying it — whether it’s rational or not — ‘Is the illegal immigrant draining your economy?’ Possibly. ‘Is he taking away your job?’ Possibly.

Trump has been a frequent guest on Stern’s show, which the media star used last year to wildly back Israel in the latest against Hamas missile attacks.

He is against Judaism as an organized religion, but his daughter Emily reportedly has become Orthodox.

The Los Angeles Jewish Journal’s Rob Eshman wrote last year about Stern:

Stern was born Jewish, suffered through—his words—Hebrew school and bar mitzvah studies—and has nothing kind to say about Judaism in particular or organized religion in general.

But the 60 year-old Long Island boy is deeply, tribally, culturally Jewish—and for Jews like him, Israel is the obvious answer to the enduring problem of anti-Semitism, as well as to anti-American, anti-Western, anti-democratic forces in the Middle East.

Stern may be anti-religion, but he is pro-American, pro-democracy, pro-Western and pro-Jews.  So, he is pro-Israel.


19 Non-Jewish Reasons the Stock Market Is Plunging

Monday, August 24th, 2015

Fear and greed move the stock market, and the fear has grown into paranoia.

If people are in a good mood, they read the news through rose-tinted glasses, and not even another Islamic State (ISIS) beheading of an American could scare them away from buying stocks.
The crash in the market in Shanghai set off fears that have been tucked away in the back of the minds of anyone who ventures to hear or see what is going on in the world.

It seems that the constant Obama administration’s propaganda that the Middle East will fall apart without a “two-state” nightmare is not driving people to sell stocks.

There are real fears out there, no matter how much the White House tries to camouflage them with President Barack Obama’s playing golf with Steph Curry and taking a popularity hitchhike on Jon Stewart’s coattails.

A poll conducted by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research named the threat of terrorism and the Islamic State (ISIS) as the most worrisome foreign policy issues.

Next on the “worry list” is immigration.

Here are 17 other Americans’ fears that no longer are blinded by greed:

— A Congressional veto of the deal with Iran will cause Iran to become more militant and encourage it develop a nuclear weapon and encourage Hezbollah terrorist attacks on the shores of the United States.

— Congressional approval of the deal with Iran will pave the way for Iran to build a nuclear weapon and fund Hezbollah terrorist attacks on the shores of the United States.

— Donald Trump will become the Republican presidential nominee.

— Jeb Bush will become the Republican presidential nominee

— Hillary Clinton will be the Democratic presidential nominee.

— Bernie Sanders will be the Democratic presidential nominee.

— Joe Biden will be the Democratic presidential nominee.

— The Islamic State (ISIS) will behead another American.

— Mexican immigration will destroy America.

— Homosexual marriages will destroy America.

— The Supreme Court will destroy America.

— ‘Millennials” will be lucky if they get 50 percent of Social Security payments.

— Drug care will be non-affordable.

— Joe Biden will be the next U.S. president.

— Donald Trump will be elected president.

— Hillary Clinton will be elected president.

— Jeb Bush will be elected president.

— Bernie Sanders will be elected president.

What happened to the fear that the Arab-Israeli struggle endangers America’s security?
