Friday Fume by Craig Andresen


It’s clear that socialists after the reelection of their Emperor act exactly like the fans who riot after their team wins a title.
This is why we can’t have nice things.
In Egypt, Tahrir Square is again filled with pissed off people after Morsi made himself a Dictator, North Korea is acting like they’re gonna launch another soon to fail missile test and the United Lair of Thugs, Thieves and Despots voted for Imaginary Statehood Status for the terrorists of the never existed in the first place Palestine.
But this week, we’re going to concentrate on our local lunatics.
We’ve made it to the end of another week Patriots. Today IS Friday and…
I’m fuming!!!
With an Emperor who wants to punish success, it stands to reason that…
FAILURE IN THIS DAY AND AGE…IS REWARDED!!!
Remember, just a couple weeks ago, when Hostess went BANKRUPT and their IDIOTIC UNION STRUCK THEIR WAY RIGHT OUT OF THEIR OWN JOBS AND PENSIONS???
Well…NOW…
HOSTESS WANTS TO PAY THEIR TOP OF THE BOTTOM OF THE BARREL EXECUTIVES…
$1.8 MILLION DOLLARS IN BONUS MONEY!!!!!
I am NOT making this up…
Hostess claims that the bonuses are necessary to retain the 19 corporate officers and “high-level managers” while they complete the liquidation process, which could take about a year and that 2 of those “executives” WOULD BE ELIGIBLE FOR…ADDITIONAL BONUSES…DEPENDING ON HOW “EFFECTIVELY” THEY CARRY OUT THE LIQUIDATION!!!!!
In other words…IF THEIR REALLY, REALLY GOOD AND COMPLETING THE FINAL DESTRUCTION OF THE ENTIRE COMPANY…THEY GET A BIGGER BONUS!!!
On the UP side…apparently several companies ARE interested in buying whatever is left of Hostess but I’m STILL hoping it goes to that Mexican outfit…”Bimbo.”
There’s just a snarky part of me that wants to walk into a grocery store, stroll up to the snack aisle and see…
BIMBO HO HO’S ON SALE!!!!!!!
Fuming.
You’ve heard of RoboCop…right?
Well, now the Department of Homeland Insecurity is planning on keeping us all safe with…
ROBO-COD!!!!!
The Boston Engineering Corporation in Waltham, Mass., built this THING with OUR money and the Department of Homeland Insecurity will be USING it to as explore the flooded areas of ships, inspect oil tankers or patrol U.S. harbors looking for suspicious activity.
HEY LOOK…THERE’S A GUY SITTING ON THE DOCK WITH A LAPTOP AND HE SEEMS TO BE PAYING QUITE A BIT OF ATTENTION TO THAT OIL TANKER ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE HARBOR!!!!!
Now THAT would be SUSPICIOUS!!!
Good grief…
According to Dave Taylor, the program manager for this GREAT idea…
The Robo-COD will, “blend in well with surrounding marine life.”
Well I would hope SO.
WE WOULDN’T WANT A MECHANICALLY DRIVEN, REMOTE-CONTROLLED, SPY FISH TO BLOW IT’S COVER AND GET OUTED BY A SQUID THAT CAN’T KEEP ITS MOUTH SHUT!!!
Right off the bat…I see 2 potential problems with this multi-million dollar waste of taxpayer’s money.
1)      Somebody is gonna HACK into the program and before you know it…ROBO-COD IS GONNA BE AHMADINEJAD’S NEW BATH TUB TOY or…
2)      WE’RE ABOUT TO DISCOVER EXACTLY WHAT THE INSIDE OF A SEA LION LOOKS LIKE!!!!!
Fuming!!
Oh happy day…
The Emperor must be SO EXHAUSTED from ALL THAT CAMPAIGNING that he needs…
ANOTHER VACATION!!!
With the country speeding toward the fiscal cliff LIKE THELMA AND LOUISE…
THIS PUTZ HAS ANNOUNCED THAT HE AND THE WORST FAMILY WILL TAKE A 3 WEEK VACATION IN HAWAII!!!!!
Golf…Private Beach…SHOPPING…Lavish dinners…
But HIS HIGHNESS WON’T SIGN ANY BILL TO AVERT THE FISCAL CLIFF THAT DOESN’T JACK UP TAXES ON THE 1%!!!!!!!
Under the Emperor’s plan…THAT TAX HIKE WILL OFF-SET ALL OF 8 ½ DAYS OF GOVERNMENT SPENDING!!!
And here’s the kicker…
HIS PLAN INTRODUCES MORE…NEW…GOVERNMENT SPENDING!!!!
IF HE WANTED A LONG VACATION…WHY IN THE HELL DID HE RUN FOR 4 MORE YEARS ON THE JOB TO BEGIN WITH?????
Maybe all those socialists who voted for the fool on the hill did so because he was gonna protect the Pell Grants.
NOPE…GUESS WHAT MORONS…HE’S GONNA CUT THOSE BY 33%!!!!!
Maybe it was because THIS time they were SURE that the Emperor would actually DO something about the economy.
NOPE…GUESS AGAIN SOCIALISTS!!! JUST LIKE WE TOLD YOU…THE NEXT 4 YEARS WOULD BE JUST LIKE THE LAST 4 YEARS and to prove it…HE’S GOING ON ANOTHER VACATION WHILE THE ECONOMY FACES DISASTER!!!
Maybe the Emperor will find a solution AT A PRIVATELY CATERED LUAU!!!
And by the way…THERE AIN’T ENOUGH GRASS ON ALL THE ISLANDS COMBINED TO MAKE A SKIRT TO COVER SHAMUCHELLE’S AMERICA-HATING ARSE!!!!!
Maybe sometime during the Emperor’s vacation would be the PERFECT time for Sheriff Joe to SEND HIS INVESTIGATORS BACK TO LOOK A LITTLE DEEPER FOR THE REAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE…The emperor could sign off on whatever paperwork it takes to open all the records!!!
FORWARD!!!!!
I’m Fuming!!!
And Finally…Jamie Foxx is confused…
REALLY CONFUSED!!!!!
First of all he’s a comedian who THINKS he’s an ACTOR who THINKS he’s a MUSICIAN and NOW…
THIS 2-BIT IDIOT THINKS THAT OBAMA IS THE LORD AND SAVIOR!!!!!
Last weekend, at the SOUL Train awards (an awards show named after a long defunct show) this jackass actually opened his pie-hole and spewed forth:
“It’s like church over here. It’s like church in here. First of all, give an honor to God and our Lord and Savior Barack Obama.”
Popout
Allow me to explain A FEW of the differences to this moron…
JESUS was born in a MANGER in BETHLEHEM.
OBAMA WAS BORN IN A HOSPITAL IN KENYA!!!
JESUS’ mother was a VIRGIN…
OBAMA’S MOTHER WAS A TRAMP!!!!
JESUS’ FATHER was OUR Heavenly Father…
OBAMA’S DAD WAS A MARXIST ASSHOLE!!!!!!!

Jesus healed the sick.
OBAMA PASSED THE LARGEST TAX HIKE IN AMERICAN HISTORY BEFORE ANYBODY HAD A CHANCE TO READ THE DAMNED THING!!!!!
Jesus said, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
OBAMA DOES UNTO OTHERS AND THEN GOES ON A 4 MILLION DOLLAR VACATION!!!!!
JESUS was GIVEN UP for 30 pieces of silver…
OBAMA WAS REELECTED BY SLUTS WHO WANT FREE BIRTH CONTROL!!!!!!!
JESUS lived to be 33 years old.
BY THAT STANDARD…OBAMA IS PAST HIS EXPIRATION DATE!!!!!
JESUS was crucified with his hands and feet nailed to a cross…
OBAMA SHOULD HAVE HIS ASS NAILED TO A DOOR JAM!!!!!!!!
Believing in Jesus gives us life, everlasting…
BELIEVING IN OBAMA PUTS US IN DEBT FOR ALL ETERNITY!!!!!
Listen Foxx, YOU BLATHERING FOOL…
JESUS IS THE LORD AND SAVIOR!!!!!!!
OBAMA, BY COMPARISON…IS THE ANTI CHRIST!!!!!!!!
AND YOU…YOU ARE NOTHING BUT AN ABSOLUTE SACK OF CRAP WHO LIKES TO PLAY DRESS-UP, LIVES IN A MAKE BELIEVE WORLD AND YOU HAVE YOUR HEAD SO FAR UP YOUR OWN KEESTER YOU HAVE TO UNZIP YOUR FLY TO DRINK YOUR SOCIALIST KOOL AID THROUGH A STRAW!!!!!
And don’t even TRY to sweep it under the prayer rug by saying that you’re a comedian and you were just playin’…
YOU AIN’T BEEN FUNNY FOR ABOUT 15 YEARS!!!!!!!
Well…At least I got all THAT off my chest.
It’s Friday my Patriot Friends and…

The Coming Doctor "Cliff"


As Congress continues to try and work out a deal with an unreasonable White House to prevent going over the fiscal cliff, doctors are facing even bigger problems. New ObamaCare taxes kick in on January 1 no matter what happens with the fiscal cliff or the debt ceiling and $500 billion has already been cut from Medicare to pay for the legislation. Doctors are begging for Washington to reform the Medicare system rather than come up with short term solutions that aren't really solutions at all. More from POLITICO:
Not only do doctors face a 2 percent cut in Medicare reimbursements because of the failure — thus far — to avoid sequestration, but they’re also looking at a 27 percent reduction in pay in the absence of a deal to fix the Medicare payment formula.

They’re also worried that, so far, the elements of a possible Medicare fiscal cliff deal — as — suggest that even more provider cuts are on the way.

“Blunt cuts are not reform,” said Rich Umbdenstock, CEO of the American Hospital Association. “We’ve got to reform the health care system and cuts on top of cuts are not going to help. They’re just going to shift cuts once again.”

Gail Wilensky, who led Medicare and Medicaid for President George H.W. Bush, warned that “having this looming out year after year … must really wear on physicians who are actively involved in Medicare wondering what they’re doing being involved in, for them, such an unstable program.”

“All that’s being publicly discussed is reducing payments under the same dysfunctional payment system,” she added.

The solutions under consideration by Congress, the panelists warned, would simply shift costs and apply blunt cuts to a system crying out for reform.

The French Connection – To Anti-Semitism by Ari Lieberman


When it comes to the Jews, the French have a long, checkered history of treachery. French anti-Semitism is well known and deeply embedded in French culture. It therefore comes as no surprise that France will likely be the first major Western power to recognize Palestinian statehood, according to a statement released by the French Foreign Ministry.
No doubt, the continued Arab migration to France and the influence Muslims wield in that spineless country played a role in shaping France’s disastrous foreign policy decision. Yet the French decision is consistent with their perfidious past and it is likely that they would have embarked on the same trajectory with or without indigenous Muslim influence.
The French prefer to think of themselves as an enlightened people but the sad fact is that French cultural anti-Semitism is among the most insidious and embedded of all of Europe. Assimilated or not, Jews have always been the preferred target of the French cultural elite and French history is peppered with such examples.
Consider the infamous case of Alfred Dreyfus, a captain in the French artillery corps and fully assimilated Jew, falsely accused by the French military establishment of passing military secrets to the Germans. Dreyfus was arrested and charged with treason by French authorities in 1894. He was found guilty by a French kangaroo court and spent the next four years of his life on Devil’s Island. Despite overwhelming and incontrovertible evidence of his innocence, French authorities, infected with anti-Semitism from the top down, refused to budge. It was not until 1906 that a French military commission fully exonerated Dreyfus.
It is no secret that among the Western nations occupied by the Nazis during World War II, the French were the most willing collaborators going well beyond what was requested of them by their Nazi masters. It was not until 1995 that the French acknowledged their dastardly role in their systematic efforts to exterminate French Jewry. The stench of French collaboration and the role they played in the murder of their own citizens, simply because they were of Jewish decent, will remain a permanent stain on France.
In 1967, when Israel was under existential threat from her Islamic neighbors, French President Charles de Gaulle initiated an arms embargo on Israel and refused to deliver 50 Mirage Vs, which had already been paid for by Israel. Adding insult to injury, the French sold the aircraft to Qaddafi’s Libya, a sworn enemy of the Jewish State.
Iraq under the murderous Saddam Hussein maintained close relations with France. Indeed, France among all the Western powers, stood out as Iraq’s closest ally. French Prime Minister Jacques Chirac even referred to Hussein – the man who threatened to “burn half of Israel” and who provided cash for the families of homicide bombers – as his “personal friend.” France was also instrumental in providing Hussein with a nuclear reactor despite justifiable fears that such a reactor would be used by Hussein to produce WMDs.
France has a long history of cozying up to anti-Western characters. She provided safe haven to Ayatollah Khomeini and embraced arch terrorist Yasser Arafat as well as Syria’s former President and serial killer Hafez al-Assad.
As recent as this year, France’s consul general in Jerusalem engaged in historical revisionism by issuing an asinine statement that attempted to sever the historical Jewish nexus with the Land of Israel. In a speech on archeology in Israel, Consul General Frederic Desagneaux made repeated references to “Palestine’ and “Palestinian archeology” without once referencing Israel or Jews, as if the history of that region began and ended with so-called Palestinian Arabs.
The French now come full circle with their recently announced intention to recognize Palestinian statehood. The French ambassador to London once referred to Israel as “that shitty little country.” Judging by France’s collaborationist past and its associations with less than reputable characters, the ambassador’s pejoratives accurately describe France to a T.

Saving Susan Rice – by Dan Bubalo by Dan Bubalo


It’s a safe bet that if the Obama administration had devoted as much attention to saving the murder victims in Benghazi as they are saving the sorry, inexperienced backside of marionette Susan Rice there would be no investigation of a cover-up to keep a sitting president from being perceived as an indecisive and immoral weakling.  Clearly, she allowed herself to be used as a tool and showed the discernment of a trainee as opposed to an experienced ambassador when it came to selling deceased Americans down the river to protect her boss, and she slipped into defense mode as easily as most people slide into their favorite pair of sneakers.
So what prompted the “smartest lawyer in America” to go forward on behalf of the president and LIE and perpetrate the hoax in the same vein as Double-Down-Rice, who is making an even bigger fool of herself as I type?
Skin color matters not a whit with respect to her considerable missteps and opprobrious behavior for she openly distributed misinformation to protect the reputation of a man with a vaporous backbone who treats underlings like a mother rat, nudging its babies to eat the bait first to find out if it’s poisonous.  While criticism of Ms. Rice is being deflected by knee-jerk defenders as racial, is it not richly ironic that the very man who sent her into battle naked is also black? Apparently mental malleability and weakness are not traits confined to race but rather a reflection of character, and regrettably, neither has any.
In order for us to believe Rice did not knowingly, willingly, and purposelessly mislead and LIE to the world in order to hide the cowardice and prejudice of her boss is to believe that she operates in a vacuum and was completely and totally unaware of the facts.  Anyone, who would so despicably sell their soul for a quid pro quo offer of a nomination to a vital cabinet position to perpetrate fraud as a co-conspirator of the president is most certainly not of the mettle to be entrusted with the sophisticated and delicate demands of Secretary of State, and it is upon this basis that she disqualified herself as a viable candidate and NOT on the basis of the color of her skin or her gender, for she always held in reserve at all times to simply say “No”, and she instead said, “Yes, Massa.”
Give me a break with all this racial and gender crapola, will you?  She’s pathetic and so is her boss, although they’re not alone. (Oh, and by the way, Mr. Obama?  This isn’t the playground in the inner city in which you never lived, so quit pounding your chest to defend Ms. Rice as if she was your girlfriend……and not up for a big job for which you had slated)
Now let’s talk about Hillary Clinton, a woman with an absurdly inflated sense of self, rivaled only by the fawning media who once pronounced her the smartest lawyer in America.  Perhaps, after nearly 25 years of manufactured adulation, someone might think to cite a prominent case in which she participated so we no longer have to degrade the reputations of Messrs Belli, Civelleti, Gould, Jenner, and Liman, all of whom were her contemporaries while she was vaingloriously praised for no reason other than that of being in the spotlight and being married to Bill.
In fact, a case could be made that if she hadn’t married a lawyer who was ultimately disbarred, nobody in the upper echelon of legal circles would even know her name.  So what prompted the “smartest lawyer in America” to go forward on behalf of the president and LIE and perpetrate the hoax in the same vein as Double-Down-Rice, who is making an even bigger fool of herself as I type?
A number of explanations come to mind, including unfounded arrogance, a lifetime of telling unchecked lies, (being named for Sir Edmund Hillary though he conquered Mt. Everest five years after she was born, being shot at in Bosnia, her daughter jogging near Ground Zero 9/11/01) and, perhaps, just perhaps, ignorance.  I know more lawyers than I care to admit, but I’ve never met one who would go out and blatantly LIE again, and again, and again, and again to cover the tracks of a rudderless president.
Oh, my.  I just described “Hillary Clinton squared.”
Lastly, we have the president addressing the U.N. and re-telling the cover-story of the cover-up to cover his ineptitude a full 14 days after the Benghazi slaughter and bowing to his puppet masters from the Arab world that a terrorist attack was caused by a video.  He didn’t just suggest it, by the way; he reiterated in seven separate portions of his address.   Let’s not fall for the misdirection play involving the na├»ve and easily manipulated Susan Rice, who was promised a position for which she wasn’t qualified by parading herself in front of five different news shows to foment fiction.  Let’s turn the focus toward the listless and disengaged leader, Barack Hussein Obama.  Not only did he instruct members of his cabinet to lie, he assumed the lead and continued to perpetuate the false narrative himself.
 
Forget Petraeus and his infidelities.  Sure he goes down as a skid mark in a tawdry soap opera, but he was nothing more than a smokescreen held in reserve to keep the posse off the trail.  I guess that shows that one might be a great military strategist and leader while not necessarily having the brains of a baby turkey.   Rice?  Misdirection play.  Hillary?  Just another huckster shill who should have known better than to participate in the fraud.  What’s it all mean?
We have an inept, cavalier, and yes, lazy president with unquestionable pro-radical Muslim sentiments,  whom in his own words once pompously stated:  I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.  Well, baby, those winds they are a-changin’.  Imagine FDR pledging allegiance to Hitler or Hirohito, or any other president except Carter kowtowing to Russia.  The outrage would be thicker than a mushroom cloud and equally destructive.
Barry Soetero, aka Barack Obama, told the world the dog ate his homework, a flat tire made him late for work, the power went out and his alarm didn’t ring.  Reality says he is a liar, and closer scrutiny says this is just another case of criminal behavior he is allowed to promote without check thanks to stacking the deck with enablers.
I don’t know about you, but nothing about this ship of fools says “leadership.”  There is no Professor among them, although the boat is chock full of Gilligans.

PRAVDA: Obama 're-elected by illiterate society'...


Putin in 2009 outlined his strategy for economic success. Alas, poor Obama did the opposite but nevertheless was re-elected. Bye, bye Miss American Pie. The Communists have won in America with Obama but failed miserably in Russia with Zyuganovwho only received 17% of the vote. Vladimir Putin was re-elected as President keeping the NWO order out of Russia while America continues to repeat the Soviet mistake.
After Obama was elected in his first term as president the then Prime Minister of Russia, Vladimir Putin gave a speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland in January of 2009. Ignored by the West as usual, Putin gave insightful and helpful advice to help the world economy and saying the world should avoid the Soviet mistake.
Recently, Obama has been re-elected for a 2nd term by an illiterate society and he is ready to continue his lies of less taxes while he raises them. He gives speeches of peace and love in the world while he promotes wars as he did in Egypt, Libya and Syria. He plans his next war is with Iran as he fires or demotes his generals who get in the way.
Putin said regarding the military,
"...instead of solving the problem, militarization pushes it to a deeper level. It draws away from the economy immense financial and material resources, which could have been used much more efficiently elsewhere."
Well, any normal individual understands that as true but liberalism is a psychosis . O'bomber even keeps the war going along the Mexican border with projects like "fast and furious" and there is still no sign of ending it.  He is a Communist without question promoting the Communist Manifesto without calling it so. How shrewd he is in America. His cult of personality mesmerizes those who cannot go beyond their ignorance. They will continue to follow him like those fools who still praise Lenin and Stalin in Russia.  Obama's fools and Stalin's fools share the same drink of illusion.
Reading Putin's speech without knowing the author, one would think it was written by Reagan or another conservative in America. The speech promotes smaller government and less taxes. It comes as no surprise to those who know Putin as a conservative. Vladimir Putin went on to say:
"...we are reducing taxes on production, investing money in the economy. We are optimizing state expenses.
 The second possible mistake would be excessive interference into the economic life of the country and the absolute faith into the all-mightiness of the state.
There are no grounds to suggest that by putting the responsibility over to the state, one can achieve better results.
Unreasonable expansion of the budget deficit, accumulation of the national debt - are as destructive as an adventurous stock market game.
During the time of the Soviet Union the role of the state in economy was made absolute, which eventually lead to the total non-competitiveness of the economy. That lesson cost us very dearly. I am sure no one would want history to repeat itself."
President Vladimir Putin could never have imagined anyone so ignorant or so willing to destroy their people like Obama much less seeing millions vote for someone like Obama. They read history in America don't they? Alas, the schools in the U.S. were conquered by the Communists long ago and history was revised thus paving the way for their Communist presidents. Obama has bailed out those businesses that voted for him and increased the debt to over 16 trillion with an ever increasing unemployment rate especially among blacks and other minorities. All the while promoting his agenda.
"We must seek support in the moral values that have ensured the progress of our civilization. Honesty and hard work, responsibility and faith in our strength are bound to bring us success."- Vladimir Putin
The red, white and blue still flies happily but only in Russia. Russia still has St George defeating the Dragon with the symbol of the cross on its' flag. The ACLU and other atheist groups in America would never allow the US flag with such religious symbols. Lawsuits a plenty against religious freedom and expression in the land of the free. Christianity in the U.S. is under attack as it was during the early period of the Soviet Union when religious symbols were against the law.   
Let's give American voters the benefit of the doubt and say it was all voter fraud and not ignorance or stupidity in electing a man who does not even know what to do and refuses help from Russia when there was an oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Instead we'll say it's true that the Communists usage of electronic voting was just a plan to manipulate the vote. Soros and his ownership of the company that counts the US votes in Spain helped put their puppet in power in the White House. According to the Huffington Post, residents in all 50 states have filed petitions to secede from the Unites States. We'll say that these Americans are hostages to the Communists in power. How long will their government reign tyranny upon them?
Russia lost its' civil war with the Reds and millions suffered torture and death for almost 75 years under the tyranny of the United Soviet Socialist Republic. Russians survived with a new and stronger faith in God and ever growing Christian Church. The question is how long will the once "Land of the Free" remain the United Socialist States of America?  Their suffering has only begun. Bye bye Miss American Pie!  You know the song you hippies. Sing it! Don't you remember? The 1971 hit song by American song writer Don McLean:
"And, as I watched him on the stage my hands were clenched in fists of rage.
No angel born in Hell could break that Satan's spell
And, as the flames climbed high into the night to light the sacrificial rite, I saw...
Satan laughing with delight the day the music died
He was singing, bye bye Miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry
Them good ol' boys were drinking whiskey and rye, singing...
This'll be the day that I die
This'll be the day that I die
So, the question remains:
How long will America suffer and to what depths?

The Tired Repetition of a “Truce”


Few things are more despicable than moral equivocation. Yet ever since the social revolution of the 1960s took hold, the citizens of Western nations in general, and America in particular, have slowly grown accustomed to “splitting the difference” between good and evil. The latest incarnation of this abandonment of principles is the so-called “truce” between Hamas and Israel. It represents nothing more than a reiteration of Albert Einstein’s immortal definition of insanity: doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting a different result each time.
This time, like every other time, the script was written long before any of the current machinations took place. Here is the standard formula that never changes, not even one iota:
 1.  Hamas, Hezbollah or some other terrorist entity perpetrates some form of violence against Israel until they reach a breaking point.
 2.  Israel first responds with surgical strikes.
 3.  The terrorist entity ramps up the violence, and Israel responds in kind.
 4.  The terrorist death toll mounts, due in large part to the reality that they put their military ordinance among the civilian population.
 5.  The mounting death toll is exploited by terrorists, who enlist the aid of the useful idiots in the media.
 6.  The media willfully cooperates, publishing “heart-breaking” pictures of terrorist casualties (real or faked), and begin disseminating columns and articles about Israel’s “disproportionate response.”
 7.  The so-called International Community picks up on that motif, and begins to condemn Israel, even as the terrorist violence becomes irrelevant.
 8.  The resultant pressure forces Israel to back off, and a “truce” is secured.
 9.  The negotiators pat themselves and each other on the back for averting a “greater crisis.”
10. The International Community once again urges a “jump start” to “peace talks” that involve concessions from Israel, and nothing in return from the terrorists.
11. The International Community stops paying attention.
12. After a period of faux-calm, terrorist activity resumes against Israel, and the whole cycle begins all over again.
This formula is so rigid, that even when evil clarifies itself succinctly, it can be swept aside. In this case, the Hamas military wing known as Izzedine al-Qassam made it crystal clear that the summary execution of six of their fellow Palestinians accused of “spying” for Israel–absent anything remotely resembling due process–can be studiously ignored by those for whom splitting the difference dictates such an imperative.
Not that Izzedine al-Qassam made it easy for the moral midgets. Four masked men pulled the six “collaborators” out of a van at a public intersection, where they were made to lie face down on the street. Each one was shot in the head and killed. After that, one of the dead men was cabled to the back of motorcycle and dragged through the streets. 24-year-old Ashraf Maher illuminated the feelings of his fellow Palestinians. ”They should have been killed in a more brutal fashion so others don’t even think about working with the occupation,” he contended.
Initially there was a YouTube video depicting the savagery. The website removed it, citing their policy of not disseminating “shocking and disgusting content.” The Daily Mail was less sensitive, publishing these pictures of the atrocity. In the comments section underneath the story, one person neatly summed up the position of the moral equivocators. “110 Palestinians to 3 Israelis. Need I say more? shame on all of you zionists,” read the comment.
This then, is the ultimate destination of  “fairness.” It is no longer enough that the living must be subjected government-enforced rigors of equal outcome. Casualties of war must now be totted up in order to determine who is good and who is evil, and whether or not Israel is “justified” in defending itself against those who yearn for its annihilation–and make no secret of the fact.
No one illuminated the bankruptcy of such “fairness” better than MSNBC correspondent Mara Schiavocampo, who asked this question during an interview with Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren. “Living under the threat of rocket attack is certainly a psychological trauma. But what would you say to those who argue that the rockets are essentially very ineffective, they rarely do damage and that the response from Israelis is disproportional to the threat they’re under?” she asked. In other words, Israel’s response to the barrage of 12,000 rockets and mortars lobbed at their civilian population since 2009 is disproportionate–because an insufficient number of Israelis have been killed or wounded by them, due their ineffectiveness.
Yet time, and technology marches on. Israel’s Iron Dome antimissile defense was deemed a “game changer” due to its 90 percent success rate in shooting down Hamas’s Iranian-supplied Fajr 5 missiles, some of which were aimed at Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. That means ten percent of the missiles got through. It also means that both of Israel’s most populous cities are now in missile range.
Perhaps a technological breakthrough will provide Hamas or some other terrorist entity with their own “game changer,” as in the kind of advanced missile technology, or warhead capability, that ensures the next time they ramp up their bloodthirsty ambitions–and make no mistake: there will be a next time– that the kind of “fairness” sought by the moral equivocators in government, the media, and the International Community, will be achieved.
All Israel bought itself was time. And time is not on its side. Yet for those utterly bereft of integrity and moral character, time is more than enough.

Fear, Everywhere, Fear


There is ample reason to fear not only the collapse of the nation’s economy, but the loss of liberty in America

If my emails and the headlines I am reading indicate anything, there is widespread fear among Americans that something terrible has occurred with the reelection of President Obama. Not all Americans, though. Those who voted for Obama appear to remain oblivious despite the threat of a “fiscal cliff” or the new taxes in Obamacare that will kick in on January 2nd.
We have a Secretary of the Treasury, Timothy, Geithner, calling for an end to debt ceilings, apparently believing that America can continue to borrow money to pay for the interest on its escalating debt, now pegged at $16 trillion and growing daily. The U.S. borrows $4 billion a day. Anyone with a credit card knows that their payments increase as they struggle to deal with their personal debt. Eventually they either declare bankruptcy or turn to companies that negotiate a payment to release them.
If America was to default on its debt, the dollar, already in free fall, would be worth nothing. We would be bartering shiny beads and anything else to buy food and other necessaries. We would become Zimbabwe where you need a million of their dollars to buy a loaf of bread.
Writing recently on her Fox Business blog, Gerri Willis spelled out the huge rise in taxes Americans are facing. “All told, next year, total taxes will go to almost 50% for the middle class; the very group that the president says he wants to protect. That means 50 cents out of every dollar earned has to go to the government. Half of everything will go to an entity that didn’t earn that money, and shouldn’t be entitled to all that dough.”
What kind of madness is it that the Teamsters union would impose such senseless rules that it would weaken Hostess to the point of bankruptcy, preferring to let the company die rather than to protect the jobs of 18,500 bakers? Other unions are engaged in attacks on a weakened economy. What kind of nation is it that its government employees are lobbying Congress to not only increase their pay, but to exempt them from the impact of the spending cuts scheduled to kick in?
There is a full-scale attack on the privacy Americans have taken for granted, protected by the fourth Amendment that says “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated…”
On November 14th, the Heritage Foundation asked “Do you trust the government with your computer?” The government has had “13 breaches and failures of its own cybersecurity just in the last six months.” Even so, “the President and his allies in the Senate are pushing forward to regulate America’s cyber-doings, without any clues about how much this will cost or how it will work.”
“It has become the norm with this President—if Congress fails to accomplish his objectives, he goes around it with executive orders and federal regulations. He’s doing it again. Congress did not pass the Cybersecurity Act of 2012 before the election, so the President has issued a draft of an executive order to put much of that legislation in place without lawmakers voting.”
This is the very essence of tyranny and the President has had four years to perfect it. Are conservative think tanks the only ones paying any attention? It would appear so.
A new proposed law in the Senate would strip Americans of any privacy as they communicate with one another by email. A vote for the law would allow warrantless access to American’s email and is scheduled for a vote shortly. It would allow 22 federal agencies as well as state and local law enforcement to access one’s emails with nothing more than a subpoena. This is totally unconstitutional.
Already $16 trillion in debt, the government is looking for ways to take over the $3 trillion that is held in private retirement plans such as 401(k) plans and IRA’s. A recent hearing by the Treasury and Labor Departments addressed the nationalization of the nation’s pension system. The director of the National Senior’s Council, Robert Crone, warns “It is clear that this is the first step towards a government takeover. It feels just like the beginning of the debate over health care and we all know how that ended up.”
As we move closer to an Electoral College vote confirming Obama’s reelection, whistleblowers are coming forth in Ohio, Florida and elsewhere to reveal that significant voter fraud was a contributing factor, but it receives little or no media coverage. One must ask how 99% of votes in Philadelphia districts went to Obama and ask why nothing is being done to investigate this and other offenses such as the 141.1% of the vote recorded in Florida’s St. Lucie County. That is statistically impossible, but it robbed Rep. Allen West (R) of his seat in Congress.
This isn’t government. It is gangsterism. It is “the Chicago way.”
The monster Homeland Security Agency just graduated its first class of FEMA Corps, kids aged 18-24, recruited from the President’s Americorps volunteers, that will become a full time, paid standing army. Fears of FEMA camps abound and in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, people seeking shelter and food were herded into one that resembled a concentration camp of the Nazi regime and told not to use various means of communication to contact the media or outside community. They went from hurricane victims to prisoners of the government.
In so many ways, the freedoms protected by the U.S. Constitution are in danger of disappearing along with the separation of powers it requires.
Little wonder that citizen’s petitions from a growing number of states are called for secession. Or that governors are refusing to set up the Obamacare exchanges required by a law that has taken control of twenty percent of the nation’s economy; their budgets held hostage to Medicaid.
On an individual level, people who have jobs are fearful of losing them. College graduates are fearful of the huge debt they carry for the loans they received. People wonder if they can afford to get married. Married couples fear the cost of having another child. Homeowners fear not being able to pay their mortgages. Seniors fear that their savings won’t last as they live longer.
There is ample reason to fear not only the collapse of the nation’s economy, but the loss of liberty in America.

Weekend Edition: The Emperor and the Pharaoh


So much for the Arab Spring.
Those of us who are, by liberal/socialists definition, blind to reality, saw it coming.
With apologies to the Bard…
Now is the winter of their discontent made glorious summer by this sun of Cairo.
Has Hillary Clinton been made a fool of again? I rather doubt it. Hillary Clinton’s most trusted and consistently visible adviser is Huma Abedin. The two are joined at the hip. Abedin is, to put it bluntly, the Muslim Brotherhood’s “diplomatic” arm or OUR State Department.
A boil on the buttocks of diplomacy between the United States and our allies.
Abedin’s ties to the Muslim Brotherhood go much deeper than ideology. They are familiar ties and deeply rooted.
It is inconceivable to me that Abedin knew nothing of the planned power grab by Egypt’s Morsi and therefore, inconceivable that Clinton didn’t know.
We knew this would happen years ago.
Our Emperor, Obama, gave the Muslim Brotherhood the VIP treatment when he started his World Condemnation of America Tour back in 2009. Obama spoke in Cairo, the Brotherhood sat up front and, at the end of the speech, in Arabic, Obama said he was one of them.
With Cairo’s Tahrir Square filled with angry protesters, our Emperor said that Mubarak had to go.
Then, said the Emperor, the Muslim Brotherhood deserved a seat at the table in the formation of a NEW Egyptian government.
The Muslim Brotherhood claimed they would NOT seek the presidency…
Hillary Clinton, with Abedin at her side, said that the Muslim Brotherhood was a moderate group.
Not only did they seek the presidency, the Muslim Brotherhood WON the Egyptian presidency.
We had seen it coming for years and we were told by liberal/socialists that we were making something of nothing, we were just trying to scare people, we were blind to reality.
Now, the first “democratically” elected president of Egypt has become their first democratically elected Pharaoh.
Obama is OUR first “democratically” elected Emperor.
They come as a set and yes, we saw that coming too.
Egypt, under the Pharaoh Morsi, has aligned with Iran and threatens Israel.
As rockets flew from Gaza into Israel, It was Morsi who wanted a “brokered” cease fire.
The Pharaoh wanted to stop the escalation before Israel launched a ground offensive against Hamas in Gaza in order to preserve Hamas’ ability to launch more rockets when the time comes that Israel comes to blows with Iran over Iran’s nuclear weapons program.
Now, less than a week later, Morsi grants HIMSELF sweeping powers.
He decrees that HE is now exempt from ANY judicial review and from the panel authoring a new Egyptian constitution. Morsi has also exempted himself from the Egyptian House of Parliament and, he has given himself the power to enact ANY measures which HE deems necessary to deal with any “threat” he sees to Egypt’s “revolution.”
According to Morsi, “We are going ahead and no one can stop our march. We are not a fragile nation and I am carrying my duty for the sake of God and my country. I take my decisions after consulting with everybody.”
Does this sound familiar?
“We are going ahead and no one can stop our march.”
Obama’s campaign slogan was, “Forward.”
Morsi says: “We are not a fragile nation and I am carrying my duty for the sake of God and my country.”
In enacting the Dream Act by decree, Obama stated, “Effective immediate, the Department of Homeland Security is taking steps to lift the shadow of deportation from these young people. This is not amnesty. This is not immunity. This is not a path to citizenships. It’s not a permanent fix. It is the right thing to do.”
He did it for his country.
Morsi states: “I take my decisions after consulting with everybody.”
And how many times have we heard Obama say that HE is willing to listen to all sides, compromise, hear opposing plane and then, he simply does what he wanted to do all along?
To us, the blind who can see with 20/20 vision, Morsi and Obama sound a good deal alike.
Keep in mind that one of Morsi’s new self-granted powers is to ignore judicial review and also keep in mind Obama’s warning to the Supreme Court in the days leading up to the Obamacare decision:
“And I’d just remind conservative commentators that, for years, what we have heard is, the biggest problem on the bench was judicial activism, or a lack of judicial restraint, that an unelected group of people would somehow overturn a duly constituted and passed law.”
Last August, the Pharaoh Morsi exerted his control over Egypt’s military in a move seen then, and confirmed now, as one to bolster his move towards a full dictatorship. Morsi forced the “retirement” of his defense minister, the army chief of staff and a handful of senior generals. Days later, General Hassan al-Rawini, a council member and head of the Egyptian Army’s Central Command resigned in protest of the Morsi power move.
Over here…
Petraeus resigned…General John Allen is on the edge of the abyss…General Ham was relieved of duty as was Rear Admiral Gaouette.
Now, The Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta, may well be replaced.
Coincidences?
There are no such things in politics.
In Egypt however, Morsi sounds a great deal like someone else.
There, he sounds just like Mubarak.
Mubarak placed “temporary” powers over the people that lasted decades and Morsi has now enacted those exact same sweeping powers and, like Mubarak, the new Pharaoh claims they are “temporary” measures.
It was those very “temporary” powers of Mubarak which ultimately led to hundreds of thousands of Egyptians taking over Tahrir Square in the Arab Spring.
Will the Emperor now call for the Pharaoh to step down?
After all, THIS is NOT that for which they voted. They did NOT vote for MORE “temporary” powers. They did NOT vote for another dictator. They did NOT vote for further suppression.
The Muslim Brotherhood and the new Pharaoh have made it clear that THEY want the Israel/Egypt peace accord eliminated. The Pharaoh has made it clear that HE stands with Iran. Hamas is a military arm OF the Muslim Brotherhood and now, the people of Egypt are once again under the dictatorship of one who has no need to be held accountable to anyone but himself.
Hillary Clinton will say whatever she is told to say either by Huma Abedin or by the Emperor’s closest adviser, Valerie Jarrett whose ties to Iran are as strong as Abedin’s are to the Muslim Brotherhood.
And so, again, the streets of Cairo and Tahrir Square fill with angry crowds. Those who want better for their country and for themselves that to live under the suppression of a Pharaoh. Violence has already begun. Tear gas has been fired into the crowd and more will be forthcoming.
What’s it like to be “elected” by the people and then appoint yourself the dictator?
Ask Morsi.
Ask Obama.
It will get worse before it gets even worse yet.

The Ceasefire Trap by Caroline Glick


The cease-fire agreement that Israel accepted Wednesday night to end the current round of Palestinian rocket and missile attacks is not a good deal for Israel by any stretch of the imagination.
At best, Israel and Hamas are placed on the same moral plane. The cease-fire erases the distinction between Israel, a peace-seeking liberal democracy that wants simply to defend its citizens, and Hamas, a genocidal jihadist terrorist outfit that seeks the eradication of the Jewish people and the destruction of Israel.
Under international law, Israel is not just within its rights to defend itself from Hamas. It is required to. International law requires all states to treat Hamas terrorists as criminals and deny them safe haven and financing. But the cease-fire agreement requires both the Israeli policeman and the Hamas criminal to hold their fire.
At worst, the cease-fire places Israel beneath Hamas. The first two clauses require both sides to end hostilities. The third suggests Israel is expected to make further concessions to Hamas after the firing stops.
Then there is the cease-fire’s elevation of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood government to the role of responsible adult. Hamas is the Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. Egyptian President Muhamad Morsi openly supports Hamas. Morsi sent his Prime Minister Hesham Kandil to Gaza to personally express the Egyptian government’s support for Hamas’s criminal assault against Israeli civilians.
Over the weekend, Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood held what the media claimed was a stormy meeting. Its members were split over what to do about Israel. Half wanted to go to war with Israel immediately. The other half called for waiting until the Egyptian military is prepared for war. In the end, the voices calling for patient preparation for war won the day.
And for their patience, the Muslim Brothers received the plaudits of the US government. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her boss President Barack Obama were effusive in their praise of the Egyptian government, and joined Egypt in placing Israel on the same moral plane as a terrorist group.
Moreover, Obama and Clinton compelled Israel to accept wording in the cease-fire that arguably makes Egypt the arbiter of Israeli and Palestinian compliance with the agreement.
Aside from the administration’s de facto support for the Hamas regime in Gaza, it is hard to think of a greater humiliation than Israel being forced to submit complaints to its sworn enemy about the actions of the sworn enemy’s terrorist client.
And yet, for all of that, it isn’t clear that Israel had a better option than to sign on the dotted line. Israel might have gotten better results if Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak had ordered the ground forces poised at the border to take out a few Hamas ground installations. It certainly would make sense for Israel to end Gaza’s electricity supply.
But as it stands today, a full-blown ground invasion in the mold of the 2002 Defensive Shield Operation, where Israel seized control of Judea and Samaria from Palestinian terror groups and reasserted its security control over the Palestinian areas, so ending the Palestinian terror onslaught against Jerusalem and central Israel, was not in the cards.
Israel is in a strategic trap. And it is one of its own making. Starting with the Rabin-Peres government’s decision to embrace the PLO terrorist organization as a peace partner in 1993, Israel has been in strategic retreat. Each incremental retreat by Israel has empowered its worst enemies both militarily and diplomatically and weakened the Jewish state militarily and diplomatically.
In May 2000, following years of political agitation by the radical Left, then-premier Ehud Barak ordered the IDF to retreat from Israel’s security zone in south Lebanon. Hezbollah immediately seized control over the border area. Within months it kidnapped and killed three IDF soldiers and held them for ransom – hiding the fact that they had been murdered. The same Barak-led government that withdrew the IDF from south Lebanon was loath to acknowledge the failure of its policy and so did nothing when the three soldiers were kidnapped.
Within six years, Hezbollah was strong enough to launch an all-out missile war against Israel.
Facing them was the government that had just carried out the withdrawal from Gaza. The governing strategy of Ariel Sharon’s heirs, Ehud Olmert and Tzipi Livni, was based on surrendering land and demonizing as warmongers those who opposed surrendering land. When Hezbollah attacked Israel in July 2006, Olmert and Livni were in no position to order a serious ground invasion of Lebanon. And since that was the only way to win the war, Israel lost the war, paving the way for Hezbollah’s subsequent takeover of the Lebanese government.
As for that withdrawal from Gaza, just like the phony peace process with the PLO and the strategically demented withdrawal from south Lebanon, the withdrawal from Gaza was a self-evidently insane policy. It was obvious that it would lead to the strengthening of Palestinian terrorist groups and so put Israel’s population centers in striking range of their missiles.
After both the Oslo process and the withdrawal from Lebanon left Israel strategically and diplomatically weakened, with its politicians, generals and its very existence brought before international tribunals and targeted by diplomatic pogroms, there was no basis for the empty claim that by withdrawing from Gaza, Israel would gain international legitimacy to defend itself.
By leaving Gaza, Israel was saying – as it had in Lebanon – that it had no right to be there. And if it had no right to be there, it had no right to return.
To force this mad initiative through, Sharon had to explicitly disavow the platform he was elected to implement. Sharon won the 2003 elections by pledging never to surrender Gaza.
After he betrayed his voters, Sharon demonized and, when possible, fired everyone in positions of power and influence who opposed him.
He called a referendum of Likud members to vote on his plan, and when his opponents won the vote overwhelmingly, he ignored it. He fired Lt.-Gen. Moshe Ya’alon, then IDF chief of General Staff. He fired his cabinet ministers. He castigated as “rebels” his party members who opposed his plan.
Moreover, with the active collusion of the legal system, Sharon violently repressed his political opponents. Young girls were thrown into jail without trial for months for participating in anti-withdrawal demonstrations. Privately chartered buses en route to lawful demonstrations were interdicted by police and prevented from traveling.
Protest organizers were arrested in their homes at 3 a.m. And with the active collusion of the media, all debate on the merits of the withdrawal plan was stifled.
As bad as it was in Israel, the situation in the US was arguably even more devastating. Since Oslo, Israeli opponents of the Left’s strategic insanity were intellectually and politically buoyed by their conservative counterparts in America.
The latter helped legitimize political opposition and enabled the conceptualization and maintenance of alternative policies as viable options.
Despite government repression, some 45 percent of Israel’s Jewish population actively participated in anti-withdrawal protests. In the US, virtually no one supported them. The absence of opposition owed to the fact that in America withdrawal opponents were boycotted, demonized and blacklisted by the American Jewish community and the previously supportive conservative media.
During the years of the fake peace process, conservative US Jewish groups and conservative publications led byCommentary, The Weekly Standard and The Wall Street Journal forcefully opposed it. But when Sharon joined the radical Left by adopting its plan to withdraw from Gaza, these formidable outlets and institutions enthusiastically followed him.
Leading voices like former Jerusalem Post editor and Wall Street Journal editorial board member Bret Stephens,Commentary editors Norman Podhoretz and Neal Kozodoy, commentator Charles Krauthammer and Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol not only lined up to support the dangerous planned withdrawal. They barred all voices of opposition from the pages of their publications.
To greater and lesser degrees, their shunning of voices that warned against the Gaza withdrawal continues to this day.
So, too, with the exception of the Zionist Organization of America, every major American Jewish organization supported the withdrawal.
Like the editors of Commentary, the Weekly Standard and the Wall Street Journal, they barred voices of opposition from speaking to their groups.
All commentators who warned of the strategic calamity that would befall Israel in the aftermath of a withdrawal from Gaza were marginalized and demonized as extremists.
In a notable gesture, this week, Stephens along with Commentary’s Max Boot, acknowledged their error in supporting the withdrawal from Gaza. Their recantations are noteworthy because most of their colleagues who joined them in pushing Israel down the garden path and cheered Sharon’s “democracy” as 8,500 Israelis were thrown out of their homes and off their land in order to free it up for a terrorist takeover, continue to deny that they were wrong to do so.
But Stephens’s and Boot’s belated intellectual integrity on Gaza is not enough to make a difference for Israel today.
Israel has only two options for dealing with the ever-escalating threat from Gaza. It can try to coexist with Hamas. This option is doomed to failure since Hamas seeks the annihilation of the Jewish people and the eradication of Israel. Recognizing this state of affairs, in a public opinion survey taken on Wednesday for Channel 2, 88% of Israelis said that a cease-fire with Hamas will either not hold at all or hold for only a short time.
74% of Israelis opposed accepting a cease-fire.
The other choice is to destroy Hamas. To accomplish this Israel will need to invade Gaza and remain in place. It will have to kill or imprison thousands of terrorists, send thousands more packing for Sinai, and then spend years patrolling the streets of Gaza and arresting terrorists just as it does today in Judea and Samaria.
Whereas the first option is impossible, the latter option is not currently viable. It isn’t viable because not enough people making the argument have the opportunity to publish their thoughts in leading publications. Most of those who might have the courage to voice this view fear that if they do, they will be denied an audience, or discredited as warmongers or extremists.
So they remain silent or impotently say that Israel shouldn’t agree to a cease-fire without mentioning what Israel’s other option is.
The millions of Israelis who opposed the withdrawal from Gaza do not seek personal vindication for being right. They didn’t warn against the withdrawal to advance their careers or make their lives easier. Indeed, their careers were uniformly harmed.
They did it because they were patriots. They felt it was their duty to warn their countrymen of the danger, hoping to avert the disaster we now face. They should be listened to now. And their voices should be empowered by those who shunned them, because only by listening to them will we develop the arguments and the legitimacy to do what needs to be done and stop fighting to lose, again and again and again.
