Half the United States Won’t Accept Syrian Refugees [video]

Tuesday, November 17th, 2015

Half of America’s 50 governors have rejected President Barack Obama’s plan to relocate 10,000 Syrian refugees throughout the country.

Muslim American groups immediately accused them of “Islamophobia.” Ibrahim Hooper, national communications director of CAIR, told Al Jazeera.

We believe these governors are succumbing to fear and Islamophobia. This is really a non-issue because refugees and immigrants are checked thoroughly by the authorities before entering the US.

In Israel, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has stated that Israel is not a position to take in refugees, but Opposition leader Yitzchak “Bujie” Herzog asserted that “Jews cannot be indifferent when hundreds of thousands of refugees are searching for a safe haven.” He did not refer to the risk of terror or the effect on increasing the non-Jewish population in Israel.

Several of the American governors, all of them Republican except for New Hampshire, said they would accept Christian Arabs, prompting President Obama to express his horror at what he called discrimination that is not “American.”

The President said in his speech on Friday night’s Islamic State (ISIS) massacres in Paris:

That is shameful. That is not American. That is not who we are. We don’t have religion tests for our compassion. Pope Francis visited…he didn’t just speak of Christians who are being persecuted…

I was very proud after 9/11 when President Bush] was adamant and declared that is not a war ion Islam….”

Governors’ comments indicated this is a war against terror and not Islam, and since almost all of the terrorists are Muslims, they are not taking any chances.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott wrote in an open letter to President Obama:

Neither you nor any federal official can guarantee that Syrian refugees will not be part of any terroristic activity.

Jeb Bush, one of the leading Republican candidates for the GOP presidential nomination, said that the United States should accept only “the Christians that are being slaughtered.”

Texas Senator Ted Cruz, also vying for the nomination, stated that there “is no meaningful risk of Christians committing acts of terror.”

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said:

There may be those who will try to take advantage of the generosity of our country and the ability to move freely within our borders through this federal resettlement program, and we must ensure we are doing all we can to safeguard the security of Americans.

Here is a list of states whose governors said they will not cooperate with federal efforts to disperse Syrian refugees:

Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho;

Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine;

Massachusetts,Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey;

North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin.

Only seven states have said they will accept refugees. Only one of them, Utah, has a Republican governor. The six states with Democratic governors are:

Connecticut, Hawaii, Kentucky, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, and Washington.

Below is the video of President Obama’s horror that states reject Syrian Muslims refugees:

Trump Tweets Photo of Bush and Swastika

Wednesday, November 4th, 2015

Donald Trump has committed political suicide.

The flamboyant “love him or hate him” candidate for the Republican party prudential nomination has tweeted a montage of pictures of candidate Jeb Bush, with a swastika placed next to him.

NBC News reported:

Tuesday’s tweet from Trump appeared to be quoting from — or a partial retweet of — a supporter’s message with a photo collage of anti-Bush imagery.

One of the pictures in the montage shows Bush, whose wife is Mexican, wearing a sombrero and standing next to a cactus.

Trump finally has fulfilled pundits’ predictions, albeit six months late, and has fallen from first place in polls, which now shows retired black neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson leading the pack.

The racist post does not necessarily reflect pressure that Trump feels by losing his lead. It simply may just be another brainless outburst from the real estate mogul who has done a great job of entertaining the media and Americans since his announcement that he would run for president.

The tweet of a swastika next to Bush is bound to earn guffaws from his supporters in the Ku Klux Klan but is just as likely to cost him a lot of support from normal right-wing voters.

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.

Clinton Puts Her Foot in the Mouth (Again) with ‘Boxcar’ Remark

Saturday, August 29th, 2015

Hillary Clinton once again has proven that the best way for her to win the Democratic nomination for president is to keep her mouth shut.

She now is the target of scorn and anger for her remark Friday that Republicans want to “round up” immigrants and “put them…in boxcars.”

Any reference to packing people into boxcars immediately brings to mind the Nazis’ shipping out Jews to death camps in cattle cars and box cars.

Clinton’s spokesman Mick Merrill said that she there was no allusion to the Holocaust and charged that Republican Jeb Bush also used the word “boxcar,” although his reference was in a statement condemning the idea. He said in June, “I don’t think our country is going to be the kind of country that puts people on boxcars and sends them away.”

Clinton’s full statement on Friday was:

I find it the height of irony that a party that espouses small government would want to unleash a massive law enforcement effort, including perhaps National Guard and others, to go and literally pull people out of their homes and their workplaces, round them up, put them, I don’t know, in buses, boxcars, in order to take them across our border.

I just find that not only absurd, but appalling.

Clinton also suffered foot in the mouth disease on Thursday when she made a snobbish and dictatorial remark after Fox News’ Ed Henry asked her three questions:

Were you aware that your husband wanted to give paid speeches for repressive regimes like North Korea?    Do you have any comment on these new e-mails that have raised questions about the conflict of interest involving your aide Huma Abedin? And finally, can you name one other cabinet secretary who had their own server?

Clinton answered only the first question, which was the least damaging, and preceded her response by saying:

Well, let me answer one of your questions, because I think that’s what you are entitled to.

Jeb Bush Seeking Jewish Support

Thursday, August 27th, 2015

Jeb Bush is preparing to reach out the senior Jewish leaders to endorse him for Republican party’s presidential nominee, the Jewish Insider reported.

The website it obtained an invitation that Bush’s staff sent to Jewish leaders to form a “National Jewish Leadership Team,” with individuals to attend a special briefing with Bush at his campaign headquarters in Miami Sept, 25, two days after Yom Kippur.

With at least 16 other contenders for the nomination, Bush is retrying to get a head start on bundling up Jewish support, some of which already is committed to Mike Huckabee.

The proposed Leadership Team, is scheduled to meet for a dinner at the Miami Beach home of two of is Jewish supporters on the day before, which is one day after the Yom Kippur holiday and fast.

The hosts are Glenda and Ronnie Krongold, who is leader in the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC).

Originally from West Virginia, he dealt in real estate in Florida and built a real estate company. One his partners in a project was “Jeb Bush and Associates,” according to the RJC website, which also noted that Krongold has been very active in Israeli Bonds.

The website states:

In 1985, at the request of a Jewish activist and publisher Phil Blazer, Ron called upon Jeb to intercede with his father, the Vice President, on behalf of approximately 1,000 Ethiopian Jews who were starving and dying in camps in Ethiopia. Thereafter through the efforts of the Vice President and a group of concerned Jews, the majority of the Ethiopians were rescued and flown to Israel by the United States government.

In 1990 Ron traveled to Russia, before the fall of Communism, along with then CEO of Bonds Meir Rosanne , Michael Siegal (who is now the chairman of the Board of Trustees of The Jewish Federations of North America) and six other Israel Bonds leaders to help with the extraction and settlement of Jews from Russia to Israel.

Bush Labels Obama ‘Desperate’; Trump: Our Country’s Going to Hell

Wednesday, July 15th, 2015

Donald Trump, who remains at the top of the overstuffed heap of Republican presidential candidates, dumped all over President Barack Obama for the new agreement with Iran and said, “This country’s going to hell.”

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio were not much less harsh, with Bush comparing President Obama with Chamberlain’s appeasement to Hitler, while Rubio said the deal undermines America’s security.

The “ObamaDeal,” just like ObamaCare, is going to get a spanking in Congress but the President is counting on Democratic Senators to prevent a two-thirds veto-proof opposition to ObamaDeal.

Trump said what everyone in the Middle East knows. “The Persians are always great negotiators” and that’s why “they are laughing at us back in Iran,” he told CNN.

He noted that Iran is holding four Americans on charges of espionage and added:

Why couldn’t they make that part of the deal? It would have happened quickly — easily if you had the right messenger. And that should have actually happened earlier. That should have happened at the beginning of the negotiations….

I’ll be honest with you. I want to save the country. Our country’s going to hell. We have a problem. I want to make America great again.

Trump told NBC that President Obama “dealt from desperation,” and remarked, “You know the Iranians are going to cheat. They’re great negotiators and you know they’re going to cheat.

Bush compared President Obama with Chamberlain and said in a prepared statement:

This isn’t diplomacy – it is appeasement. The people of Iran, the region, Israel, America, and the world deserve better than a deal that consolidates the grip on power of the violent revolutionary clerics who rule Tehran with an iron fist.

Sen. Rubio stated, “Based on what we know thus far, I believe that this deal undermines our national security. President Obama has consistently negotiated from a position of weakness, giving concession after concession to a regime that has American blood on its hands, holds Americans hostage, and has consistently violated every agreement it ever signed.

He told Fox News:

For him [Obama], this whole deal, you know what it is? It is an exhibit in his presidential library.

On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton called the ObamaDeal “an important step which puts a lid on Iran’s nuclear programs.” Vermont Sen. and underdog Bernie Sanders was more extreme and congratulated President Obama and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry for a “victory for diplomacy over saber-rattling [that] could keep the United States from being drawn into another never-ending war in the Middle East.”

Others argue just the opposite, that ObamaDeal makes war inevitable.

Rubio was quoted in The Washington Times as saying:

Look at the press coverage of this issue: Some of it’s been glowing as some sort of historic deal — it’s ridiculous.  A third-rate autocracy has now been given equality with a world power, with the United States of America.

They are now a nuclear threshold country on a deal signed with the United States and other global powers. That’s why they’re cheering in the streets [of] Tehran; that’s why they’re celebrating. You don’t see any celebrations in America. You don’t see any celebrations in Jerusalem or Tel Aviv, because they know this is a one-sided deal.

Trump-Mania Puts ‘The Donald’ in Dead Heat with Jeb Bush

Sunday, July 12th, 2015

 

 

Everyone is saying that Donald Trump’s popularity is just a passing fad, but they can’t figure out when, if  ever.

The maverick and shoot-from-the-hip billionaire real estate mogul, reality show celebrity and bigot shares the top spot among Republican voters, according to a Reuters-Ipsos poll published on Saturday.

Last week, a CNN poll announced he was sharing the top spot, and the poll by Reuters makes Trump even more of a serious contender and a critical threat to the Republican party, which would prefer to see him on a life-long mission as an astronaut in outer space, which is where he is considered to be living politically.

But he has lots of company.

The new poll gave him 16.1 percent support among Republican voters, a 0.3 lead over former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. In distant third place is New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. followed by Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson.

However, Trump still does not stand a chance because when the same poll gave voters only three choices – Trump, Bush and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio – Bush smeared Trump  42-28.4 percent.

On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton remains far ahead of Vermont Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders with more than 2-1 lead.
