Hillary’s Keynote Bio Stresses Failed Health Plan, Grand Jury Subpoena, Monica Lewinsky

Wednesday, June 29th, 2016

In a reversal of the Biblical prophet Balaam, who set out to curse and ended up blessing, presumptive Democratic Nominee Hilary Clinton’s bio handed out to the audience at the International Women’s Luncheon at the Rainbow PUSH Coalition’s Convention last Monday, included a pretty damaging paragraph — and the whole program had only three paragraphs.

After the conventional bio notes, the third paragraph reads:

As First Lady of the United States, Clinton led the failed effort to enact the Clinton health plan of 1993. In 1997 and 1999, she helped create programs for children’s health insurance, adoption and foster care. The only first lady to have been subpoenaed, she faced a federal grand jury in 1996 regarding the Whitewater controversy; no charges were brought against her related to this or any other controversies in her life. Her marriage endured the Lewinsky scandal of 1998, and overall her role as first lady drew a polarized response from the public.

Mike Fourcher tweeted the program image, with text that looks like it had been lifted from Wikipedia and never edited.

Hillary Clinton was the keynote speaker for the luncheon. She did not mention any of those bad things in her bio, and no one asked.

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?

Kerry, Abbas Meeting Set for London

Tuesday, May 13th, 2014

He’s ba-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-c-c-c-k . . . . Well, sort of.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is set to meet with Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas Thursday in London.  State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki confirmed the meeting at a briefing Monday on Capitol Hill.

“While the door remains open to a peace process, the purpose of the meeting is to discuss our ongoing relationship with the Palestinians,” she said in a curt statement. “As he has throughout the process, Secretary Kerry will reiterate a call he has made to both sides to maintain restraint and refrain from steps that would be unhelpful.”

Last week American special envoy to the Middle East Martin Indyk took care to blame both sides for the failed nine-month talks. He was especially careful to equate municipal and home maintenance with a unilateral attempt to establish sovereignty in the international arena.

For Israel’s portion, Indyk pointed to ‘settlement building’ – the endless international euphemism for basic repairs and general construction by private Israeli citizens and also by Israeli local authorities within the municipal bounds of towns or neighborhoods in areas won during the 1967 Six Day War.

The Palestinian Authority, he said, should not have signed on to membership in 15 international conventions and agencies – a direct violation of the agreement with which the failed talks began in the first place.

Abbas backed out of the talks when Israel refused to free the last of four groups of terrorist prisoners on schedule, after 78 had already been released. Israel’s government balked over the composition of the group, which included at least 20 Israeli Arabs, rather than PA Arabs. Since no progress at all had been made in the prior eight months of talks, and Abbas had not bothered to show up in person to the table for months, Israel chose to wait and see whether the final month would bring any change – or see if the PA would at least extend the talks in exchange for freeing the last group and possibly releasing more prisoners as well.

But Abbas refused.  Instead, a day later he signed a flurry of international conventions that had obviously already been prepared and ready to go. It was clear the strategy had been planned – the PA was simply waiting until the last group of terrorists were freed.

Israel formally ended the talks on April 24 when Abbas signed a unity pact with the Hamas terrorist organization that rules Gaza. Hamas refuses to recognize Israel’s right to exist and is committed to its destruction, a core principle in its founding charter. The group is backed, armed and generously funded by Iran.

The current agreement calls for the deployment of 3,000 PA government paramilitary police in Gaza, under the command of Hamas. Those forces were trained, armed and equipped by the United States armed forces — ostensibly to “fight terrorism” in Judea and Samaria in preparation for the establishment of a peaceful “two state solution” with Israel.

Last year, the Ramallah-based PA government received approximately $440 million in U.S. foreign aid, for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2013. The figure was taken from a Congressional Research Service report quoted by Reuters.

Under American law, no U.S. funds may reach Hamas, nor “any entity effectively controlled by Hamas, any power-sharing government of which Hamas is a member, or that results from an agreement with Hamas and over which Hamas exercises undue influence.”

But the Ramallah government in Samaria has for years been sending money to Gaza. Allegedly it was sent to cover the salaries of PA civil service workers. The same government still pays generous monthly stipends to Arab terrorists serving prison terms in Israeli jails.

Definition of Insanity: Failed Negotiators Trying Yet Again

Thursday, August 8th, 2013

Twenty years after Yitzhak Rabin attempted to conjure arch-terrorist Yasir Arafat into a worthy partner for peace, it seems we have not learned the necessary lessons from the past.

As the “peace process” continued to hit bumps along the way, Israel and its American ally attempted many different variations, all of which led to the same failed result. Perhaps the problem with Israeli-Palestinian conflict negotiations lies not with the process but with the people involved in representing the parties at the table.

In most professions, when one fails at his job and leaves the project in question in chaos and disarray, he is not asked to keep working on the task at hand. Not so when it comes to the “peace process industry.”

Saeb Erekat is the main representative for the Palestinian delegation. He has held this position in one form or another since 1991 and has not brought the Palestinians one inch closer to peaceful coexistence with Israel. More troubling, it is clear he never really revised his radical views about the Jewish state. During the second intifada, Erekat accused Israel of massacring 500 Palestinians in Jenin, completely ignoring the facts showing that one-tenth of that number had been killed and most of those were armed terrorists. As recently as 2007, Erekat denied the possibility of the Palestinians ever recognizing Israel as a Jewish state.

Representing the United States at the latest round of talks is former ambassador Martin Indyk. Like Erekat, Indyk has been a major player in the peace industry since the early 1990s, and he also can point to zero achievements in bringing peace and prosperity to our region. On the contrary, when Indyk served as the American ambassador to Israel during Prime Minister Netanyahu’s first term, he was known for his disparaging attitude toward the democratically elected government of Israel.

Since leaving public office, Indyk has revealed his true political leanings. Until his recent appointment by Secretary of State Joh

n Kerry, Indyk chaired the International Council of the New Israel Fund (NIF), an organization that has refused to stop funding groups that call for boycotting Israel.

Finally, we are left with Israel’s chief negotiator. Compared to Erekat and Indyk, Justice Minister Tzipi Livni is a relative newcomer to peace negotiations. Nevertheless, she too has endured countless hours of negotiating with the Palestinians. Most troubling, her views do not represent the majority of the current government and are at odds with the average Likud voter, not to mention the Israeli public, which sharply spurned her in the recent elections.

While serving under Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Livni offered the Palestinians more than 95 percent of the historic Jewish heartland of Judea and Samaria and the unprecedented division of Jerusalem – an offer that was ultimately rejected by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Erekat.

As a father of three small children, there is nothing I want more than to believe that the latest round of talks will lead to true and lasting peace. But we all know that a definition of insanity is the endless repetition of the same experiment in the hope of obtaining a different result. Therefore, all sides should end the insanity and appoint negotiators who have not failed us in the past and who truly represent the best interests of the people they aspire to represent.
