The pros and cons of
the cease fire agreement

Power Line, by Paul Mirengoff

Original Article

Posted By:MDMuskrat, 11/22/2012 10:47:06 AM

Let’s take a preliminary look at the advantages and disadvantages of the cease fire agreement, from an Israeli and traditional pro-Western perspective. There are two big advantages. First, the agreement puts an end, at least for now, to the bombardment of Israel. (snip) Now to the disadvantages. First, Hamas won. Why? Because it bombarded Israel and was not crushed for it. And because Israel reportedly agreed to an easing of its blockade of the Gaza Strip. (snip) By pushing for the deal, the Obama administration has demonstrated once again that it is no good friend of Israel.

Comments:
I break my depressed silence to post this article which shows how much this disgusting man, Obama, hates not only the U.S., but Israel even more. I plead G-d to strike this evil man before he can destroy Israel.

The most dangerous likely consequence follows from the fundamental problem of Leftism everywhere: denial of reality and the substitution of wish-fulfilling fantasies for what is actually happening and about to happen. This is the signature mark of Leftist ideology, the preference, often amounting to clinical denial of reality, and its replacement with comforting and gratifying fantasies that allay fear and increase self-esteem. Leftism, in short, is a disorder of emotional maturation. It is no accident that the trite observation that liberalism is natural to youth while conservatism frequently follows with age.

Israel is dealing with people who have stated they intend to wipe it off the map. Negotiating with such individuals is at best naive, at worst an act of suicidal madness. Yet this charade, this so-called "Peace Process," a kind of Holy Grail, has persisted in the minds of Westerners for half a century or more. Meanwhile the threat of nuclear weaponry in the hands of Israel´s enemies is growing by the day if not the hour. Anyone can see -should be able to see- where this is headed if nothing is done. The almost unimaginable coming catastrophe that is casting its shadow deeper and deeper over present events will in the final analysis be the fault of those willfully, indeed sinfully blind Western Leftists who have adamantly rejected reality in favor of their fantasies.

The last couple weeks was a trial run for a major ground invasion of Israel. You probably have world leftists studying Israel´s strengths and weaknesses and planning for them in the next round of attacks.

Israel treasures their citizens and that ironically puts them at greater risk in the long run. Someone needs to pull the trigger on going for broke and unleashing holy hell on the arab world.

Unfortunately,Obama would order a stand down position if this happened.He´s part of the cabal that wants Israel gone,then he´s coming after US crackers,make no mistake about it.

It´s a specious argument to say that although ´´the agreement puts an end, AT LEAST FOR NOW, to the bombardment of Israel,´´ Israel lost the war, while at the same time saying, ´´Hamas won. Why? Because it bombarded Israel and was not crushed for it,´´ without adding the same qualifying statement ´´AT LEAST FOR NOW.´´

If the agreement holds, Israel will be free of the numerous Hamas missile attacks it´s been subject to for years, and if it doesn´t hold, there will be another war in which Israel will again be bombarded by another round of Hamas missiles aimed at Tel Aviv which Israel´s Iron Dome has proved capable to deflecting.

On the other hand, if the agreement holds, there will be no need for the continued existence of Hamas, whose purpose is to destroy Israel, and if it doesn´t hold, Hamas will either lose another 30 of its leaders as it did last week, or finally be ´´crushed.´´

AT LEAST FOR NOW, a moment or two, Hamas and its media supporters can refuse to face reality and celebrate Hamas´s ´´victory´´ along with the equally deluded anti-Israel crowds of Hamas supporters dancing in the streets of Gaza. But Israel, not Hamas, is better off than it was last week.

Billionaire Liberal Donor Gets Way
on Keystone Pipeline
King Features Syndicate, by Rich Lowry    Original Article
Posted By: MDMuskrat- 4/22/2014 11:12:02 AM     Post Reply
In their wisdom, our Founding Fathers created a system of checks and balances and competing influences among the president and Congress, the states and the federal government, and billionaire liberal donor Tom Steyer. Tom Steyer isn’t Senate majority leader, or chairman of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, or even Senate president pro tem. He’s merely the man who wants to spend $100 million on Democrats this year and who hates the Keystone pipeline. President Barack Obama famously boasted that he has a pen and a phone that give him the power to make Washington act. Except, evidently,

Heading back from Montreal late the other night, I pulled up in front of the guard on the US side of the Quebec/Vermont border. He asked the usual questions, and then said, "Are you bringing anything back from Canada?" "Oh, just some Easter eggs," I said, breezily - and instantly regretted it. The hitherto somewhat somnolent agent sprang visibly alert. "Easter eggs?" he said, with a palpable menace in his voice. "Not Kinder eggs," I replied, trying very hard not to roll my eyes. "Just regular home-made Québécois Easter chocolate." He de-bristled, and waved us through. "Close call, Dad," said my

Bundy´s Rebellion

The thing that needs to be said in respect of the rebellion that has gathered at the ranch of Cliven Bundy is that it is as American as apple pie. At the rate things are going the Nevada ranchers are going to write themselves into American history right alongside Daniel Shays and the Pennsylvania backwoodsmen who confronted the federal government over taxes on whiskey. The echoes are uncanny — complete with the sanctimonious lectures from the federal government over the law and the righteousness of the anger of the rebels.

   

 

  


 
Scalia To Student:
If Taxes Go Too High
‘Perhaps You Should Revolt’
CBS News (DC), by Staff    Original Article

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia told a crowd of law school students that if taxes in the U.S. become too high then people “should revolt.” Speaking at the University of Tennessee College of Law on Tuesday, the longest-serving justice currently on the bench was asked by a student about the constitutionality of the income tax, the Knoxville News Sentinel reports. Scalia responded that the government has the right to implement the tax, “but if it reaches a certain point, perhaps you should revolt.” The justice was invited by the UT law school to present its annual “Rose Lecture,” and discussed events throughout his career

The most terrifying aspect of the collapse of US power worldwide is the US’s indifferent response to it. In Europe, in Asia, in the Middle East and beyond, America’s most dangerous foes are engaging in aggression and brinkmanship unseen in decades. As Gordon Chang noted at a symposium in Los Angeles last month hosted by the David Horowitz Freedom Center, since President Barack Obama entered office in 2009, the Chinese have responded to his overtures of goodwill and appeasement with intensified aggression against the US’s Asian allies and against US warships.

The Rule of the Lawless

Deserts always feel like my natural habitat, and I am very fond of them. That being said, I have, for my sins, spent a fair amount of time in Clark County, Nev., and it is not the loveliest stretch of desert in these United States, or even in the top twelve. Protecting the pristine beauty of the sun-baked and dust-caked outskirts of Las Vegas and its charismatic fauna from grazing cattle — which the Bureau of Land Management seems to regard as an Old Testament plague — seems to me to be something less than a critical national priority.

Washington- Sen. Ted Cruz said Attorney General Eric Holder should be impeached if he doesn’t indict former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner, who is linked to the agency’s targeting of conservative groups. Speaking on Sean Hannity’s radio program Thursday, the Texas Republican labeled Holder the “most partisan attorney general the country has ever had,” and added that Holder should be impeached for “defying Congress and the rule of law.” Cruz cited the attorney general’s refusal to indict anyone in the months since the inspector general found that conservative and Tea Party groups were singled out for tax purposes.

Obama to free hundreds of drug

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Dole: Cruz, Paul & Rubio
lack experience for 2016

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Michelle Obama:

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Fraud runs rampant in Census Bureau

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss
