FoxNews.com reports that

Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., issued a strong rebuke of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democratic leadership for their statement calling out fellow Squad member Rep. Ilhan Omar for her comments involving Israel.

“Freedom of speech doesn’t exist for Muslim women in Congress,” Tlaib tweeted Thursday shortly after Pelosi and Democratic leaders issued a statement critical of Omar. “The benefit of the doubt doesn’t exist for Muslim women in Congress. House Democratic leadership should be ashamed of its relentless, exclusive tone policing of Congresswomen of color.”

Tlaib and Omar were the first Muslim women elected to Congress in 2018 and, along with other members of the progressive Squad, have been more critical of Israel, especially during the recent 11-day conflict with Hamas that left more than 250 dead, the vast majority Palestinians.

The Squad rallied around Omar Thursday as fellow Democrats, including House leadership, have lined up to condemn Omar for comments they perceived as comparing U.S. and Israeli “war crimes” to actions by the Taliban and Hamas.

Pelosi and senior Democratic leaders issued a unified statement Thursday, denouncing Omar’s comments.

“[T]here is no moral equivalency between the U.S. and Israel and Hamas and the Taliban,” the Democratic leaders said Thursday.

The Democratic leadership said they “welcome” the “clarification” Omar released earlier in the day after the Minnesota Democrat was met with a flood of criticism.

“To be clear: the conversation was about accountability for specific incidents regarding those ICC (International Criminal Court) cases, not a moral comparison between Hamas and the Taliban and the U.S. and Israel,” Omar said Thursday of her remarks.

“I was in no way equating terrorist organizations with democratic countries with well-established judicial systems,” she added.

The immense backlash came after the congresswoman questioned Secretary of State Antony Blinken during a House Foreign Affairs Committee about ICC investigations into U.S. and Israeli actions in Afghanistan and the Palestinian territories.

She later posted a tweet of their exchange and said, “We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban. I asked @SecBlinken where people are supposed to go for justice.”

A group of Democrats pounced on her comments as “offensive” and “misguided.”

Omar initially defended her statements as asking legitimate questions about how war crime victims can get justice and called out her colleagues for piling on.

“It’s shameful for colleagues who call me when they need my support to now put out a statement asking for ‘clarification’ and not just call,” Omar said in a tweet early Thursday before her clarifying statement. “The islamophobic tropes in this statement are offensive. The constant harassment & silencing from the signers of this letter is unbearable.”

The House Progressive Caucus also came to Omar’s defense decrying how “a Black, Muslim woman in Congress” is routinely attacked and saying fellow Democrats should not “abet or amplify such divisive and bad-faith tactics.”

A short while back, Rep. Tlaib advocated for the BDS Movement from the Floor of the House of Representatives.

So what is BDS?

Per their website bdsmovement.net,

Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) is a Palestinian-led movement for freedom, justice and equality. BDS upholds the simple principle that Palestinians are entitled to the same rights as the rest of humanity.

Israel is occupying and colonising Palestinian land, discriminating against Palestinian citizens of Israel and denying Palestinian refugees the right to return to their homes. Inspired by the South African anti-apartheid movement, the BDS call urges action to pressure Israel to comply with international law.

BDS is now a vibrant global movement made up of unions, academic associations, churches and grassroots movements across the world. Thirteen years since its launch, BDS is having a major impact and is effectively challenging international support for Israeli apartheid and settler-colonialism.

Rep. Talib said this in May of 2019….

“There’s always kind of a calming feeling, I tell folks, when I think of the Holocaust, and the tragedy of the Holocaust, and the fact that it was my ancestors — Palestinians — who lost their land and some lost their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity, their existence in many ways, have been wiped out, and some people’s passports,” Tlaib said on the podcast’s most recent episode, published Friday. “And, just all of it was in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews, post-the Holocaust, post-the tragedy and the horrific persecution of Jews across the world at that time. And, I love the fact that it was my ancestors that provided that, right, in many ways, but they did it in a way that took their human dignity away and it was forced on them.”

In case you do not remember, the night that Rep. Tlaib was sworn in as a member of the 116th Congress, she was videotaped vowing to impeach Former President Trump. This was shortly after she penned an op-ed for The Detroit Free Press outlining the case for impeachment.

The video showed Tlaib telling supporters.

“People love you and you win. And when your son looks at you and says: ‘Momma, look you won. Bullies don’t win.’ And I said, ‘Baby, they don’t, because we’re gonna go in there and we’re gonna impeach the motherf***er.’”

Classy, huh?

Tlaib is a Black Muslim, born in America to parents of Palestinian descent.

As I have been writing over the last 11 years, Liberals are nothing if not predictable.

They view everything in terms of politics and race, not necessarily in that order.

For years now, I have referred to the intolerant political ideology of Modern American Liberals as “The New Fascism” because of their intolerance toward traditional Americans Faith and Values, including our relationship with our closest ally, Israel, since their birth as a country in 1948.

What we are seeing now, as regards the rampant anti-Semitism in the Far Left Democratic Party, which began under Former President Barack Hussein Obama, is a result of an amalgamation of the political philosophies of the special interest groups who have replaced average Americans as the Democrats’ Voting Base.

Anti-Semitism is the norm in Marxism in all of its forms, including “Democratic Socialism”.

Anti-Semitic groups tend to gravitate toward each other finding solace and kindred spirits in their shared hatred of the Jewish people.

For those of you who are old enough to have actually studied history before the Liberals started revising it, the world has bore witness to this phenomena before.

A socialist political party in a developed nation joined forces with Islamists before, based on their mutual hatred of Jews.

You may remember this. They were the National Socialist Party of Germany, otherwise known as the Nazis.

They caused the mass extermination of millions of innocent European Jews, the Holocaust which gives Congresswoman Tlaib “a calming feeling”.

The political philosophies which the Modern Democrats are now embracing are the anti-thesis of whom they claim to be.

Average Americans are not fooled by the “Unity” Rhetoric spewed by Joe Biden and the Far Left Democrats..

Heck, they can not even keep their own political party unified.

Those who hate Americans, simply because they are Jewish, like those who hate the nation of Israel for the same reason, have already gone on record.

Those on the Left Side of the Political Spectrum bear the responsibility for the anti-Semitic violence which has plagued New York City and is beginning to rear its ugly head in other cities, as well,.

Unfortunately, all we are hearing from their leaders is support for a “country” which never existed.

Once a Plagiarist…Biden Tries to Take Credit for Israel-Hamas Cease-Fire Brokered By Egypt

The Israeli security cabinet voted to accept a ceasefire negotiated by Egypt. The security cabinet unanimously agreed to a “mutual and unconditional” cessation of hostilities, according to a statement from the Prime Minister’s Office. – Adam Millstein, Twitter

FoxNews.com reports

President Biden sought to take credit for a cease-fire Thursday between Israel and Hamas, despite reports that it was Egypt that brokered the peace.

Biden, who spoke at the White House, included a sentence in his remarks commending Egyptian officials for their “critical role” in ending the fighting. But he repeatedly emphasized the intensive work he said was done by his own administration.

“Over the last 11 days, I spoke with the prime minister six times. I’ve also spoken with President Abbas and the Palestinian Authority more the once and part of our intense diplomatic engagement,” Biden said, “And I want to also thank secretary of state, the secretary of defense, our national security adviser, and everyone on our team for their incredible efforts to bring this about, this outcome that we’re about to see.

“You know, we’ve held intensive, high-level discussions, hour by hour, literally, Egypt, the Palestinian Authority and other Middle Eastern countries, with an aim of avoiding this sort of prolonged conflict we’ve seen in previous years when the hostilities have broken out.”

Biden vowed to help Israel replenish its Iron Dome system and to work with the Palestinian Authority to rebuild Gaza.

Biden said he’d spoken with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the cease-fire and commended him on his decision to bring hostilities to a close.

“The United States fully supports Israel’s right to defend itself against indiscriminate rocket attacks from Hamas,” Biden said.

Biden said the prime minister had also shared his appreciation for the Iron Dome system, Israel’s missile defense that was built with help from the U.S. Biden said the system “has saved the lives of countless Israeli citizens, Arab and Jew”.

“I assured him of my full support to replenish Israel’s Iron Dome system to ensure its defenses and security in the future,” Biden said.

Biden said he’d also spoken with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, who is a member of the Fatah Party rather than Hamas.

“I send my sincere condolences to all the families, Israeli and Palestinian, who have lost loved ones and my hope for a full recovery for the wounded,” he continued. “The United States committed to working with the United Nations, and we remain committed to working with the United Nations and other international stakeholders to provide rapid humanitarian assistance and to marshal international support for the people of Gaza and the Gaza reconstruction efforts.”

“We will do this in full partnership with the Palestinian Authority, not Hamas, Palestinian Authority, in a manner that does not permit Hamas to simply restock its military arsenal.”

The deadly fighting that erupted after heightened tensions left at least 12 Israelis and 230 Palestinians dead in the crossfire in the worst breakout of violence since the 2014 Gaza war, according to reports.

Hamas has fired more than 4,000 rockets into Israel over the past 11 days in response to a clash between Israeli police and Palestinian protesters, and the IDF struck back with devastating airstrikes.

Back in 1988, Joe Biden was running for President as a Democratic Primary Candidate.

Sleepy Joe was caught plagiarizing rhetoric from then-British Labor Party leader Neil Kinnock in three separate instances at a Democratic debate at the Iowa State Fair.

Biden later admitted that he should have said that he was “paraphrasing” Kinnock when he said those remarks. Later, he was later accused of using statements from the late Robert F. Kennedy as his own in another speech. It was also reported at the time that he either “quoted or paraphrased” John F. Kennedy and Hubert Humphrey “without credit.”

Sleepy Joe also admitted that he plagiarized while writing a paper in law school.

And now, as President of the United States of America, the supposed “Leader of the Free World, this demented doofus attempted to take credit for a Israeli-Hamas Cease-Fire which Egypt actually negotiated.

Fellow Americans, do you realize that the man who sits in OUR White House is the laughingstock of the entire world?

Joe Biden is a perfect example of the “Peter Principle”, a book published decades ago, which posited the theory that people rise in their professional endeavors to their level of incompetence.

In the little over 100 days that Joe Biden has been President, he has done more damage to America than any other President before him.

And, that is saying a lot.

Our country is more racially divided than it ever has been.

Our Justice Department and its Law Enforcement and Prosecutorial Divisions are being used as political weapons.

Our military is being used, once again, as guinea pigs for social engineering experiments.

And, our Sovereign Nations is being invaded through a wide open Southern Border.

and yet, the minions of the Democratic Party, known as the Main Stream Media, keeps covering for Biden’s incompetence.

The problem with having the Dummy From Delaware sitting in the Oval Office is that he is not paying the price for his incompetence.

We are.

Until He Comes,

Newest Member of “The Squad” Praises BLM Activist Who Coined “Pigs in a Blanket Fry ‘Em Like Bacon” Chant, Compares BLM to the Palestinians

Rep. Cori Bush | (Photo by Drew Angerer/Getty Images)

As someone who has been brutalized by police, I continue to stand in strong solidarity with Palestinians rising up against military, police, and state violence. Congress must stop funding human rights abuses by the Israeli military.

– Rep. Cori Bush, Twitter, 5/10/21

FoxNews.com reports that

Missouri Democratic Rep. Cori Bush praised the Black Lives Matter activist who advocated “death” for police officers in 2014 and tweeted the BLM chant “pigs in a blanket fry ’em like bacon.”

Bush, a newly minted member of the “squad,” compared the ongoing conflict in Israel and Gaza with the Black Lives Matter movement during a speech on the House floor Thursday, reflecting on the life of Bassem Masri, who died in 2018.

Bush described Masri as a “St. Louis Palestinian,” noting how he garnered national attention for live streaming heated exchanges between himself and Ferguson police officers following the 2014 shooting of Michael Brown Jr.

Masri was among those arrested on a variety of charges following demonstrations outside the Ferguson Police Department in November 2014. Just one month later, Masri tweeted what became a notorious BLM phrase: “Pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon.”

“As a Palestinian, he was ready to resist, to rebel, to rise up with us as our St. Louis community mourned Mike Brown, Jr.’s state sanctioned murder, and as we demanded an end to the militarized police occupation of our communities,” Bush said in an address to lawmakers on Thursday. “Palestinians know what state violence, militarized policing, and occupation of their communities look like.”

“So when heavily militarized police forces showed up in Ferguson in 2014, Bassem and so many others of our St. Louis Palestinian community, our Palestinian siblings showed up too,” she continued.

Cell phone footage captured in a live stream on Oct. 8, 2014, showed a crowd of people surrounding police officers in St. Louis as one man yelled obscenities, the local FOX affiliate reported.

“Coward straight pig out here b—! You gotta go. Your life is in danger homie,” one man yelled at a police officer. The man yelling was Masri, who then asked an officer, “What happens when we take your gun?”

Masri told police officers, “I’m praying for your death and your death and your death and your death,” as he pointed at one after another.

The St. Louis activist later told a local FOX affiliate, “If the citizen is pissed, you don’t look at the citizen and say ‘oh he’s bad, he’s a terrorist’ you look at the police and say ‘how come this man is mad at y’all’.”

“I don’t want to get hurt. I don`t want to go to jail,” he added. “I’m a citizen who’s mad.”

Masri died in 2018 from what Bush described in her floor speech as a “health crisis.”

The Missouri Democrat continued her speech by comparing the events that led to the Black Lives Matter movement to the recent deadly rocket fire in the Middle East.

“That harassment, that extortion, that brutalization by heavily armed militarized presence in our community, that’s what we fund when our government sends our tax dollars to the Israeli military,” the Missouri congresswoman said.

Bush suggested diverting funds used to bolster Israeli military support to St. Louis communities instead.

The Israeli and Palestinian death toll has steadily climbed since fighting started Monday, with at least 122 people dead in Gaza and at least eight people dead in Israel, according to the BBC.

Bush led the mob outside the home of Mark and Patricia McCloskey with a bullhorn screaming, “You can’t stop the revolution!”

The McCloskey’s were indicted by Soros prosecutor Kim Gardner for exercising their 2nd Amendment rights on their own property when they were assaulted and threatened by the mob of white Black Lives Matter terrorists.

For those of you wondering who Bassem Masri was, Here as excerpt from an article found on LegalInsurrection.com on October 25, 2014, during the height of the Ferguson Riots…

…As much tension as there is, an underreported story is the active role of “pro-Palestinian” activists who have exploited the Ferguson riots and tension this summer and fall to push their anti-Israel agenda. That anti-Israeli agenda, which involves encouraging confrontation with police in solidarity with Palestinians, is helping provide the accelerant to an already volatile situation.

It started with a propaganda campaign over the summer when Brown was shot. On Twitter and elsewhere, anti-Israel activists started tweeting messages of “support” for protesters in Ferguson, including advice on how to deal with tear gas.

It was a highly organized effort to exploit the Ferguson tension and co-opt it into the anti-Israel cause:

….But there is one anti-Israel activist who actively is trying to provoke a confrontation between protesters and police, even taunting police in crowd situations about losing their guns and hoping they die.

His name is Bassem Masri.

Masri presents himself as a journalist, but the mask is off.

Masri has been touting anti-Israeli conspiracy theories while organizing Ferguson protests, via Free Beacon:

Angry protesters in Ferguson, Mo., shut down CNN’s live broadcast Monday night after repeatedly heckling the reporter and cameraperson for working for an organization “run by AIPAC” and “Zionists.”

The heckling is audible in a video filmed by protester Bassem Masri, whose Twitter profile touts the Palestinian cause and reads “long live Palestine.”

“You f@#king lie about Ferguson; you lie about Occupy Wall Street; you lie about Palestine. You’re all run by Zionists,” one protester said. “We’re holding y’all accountable.”

The hecklers threatened to shut down future CNN broadcasts. “They’re an AIPAC-run agency,” Masri said. “Don’t even think that we won’t.”

Much more ominously, Masri appears to be directly fomenting violence…

So, Rep. Bush fits in with the other anti-Semitic members of “The Squad”.

Through her speech in the the House of Representatives, she inadvertently show here true colors as an anti-American, anti-Semitic, cop-hating Fascist Marxist.

She praised a Muslim Insurrectionist who hated everything that America stands for, including Law and Order.

By comparing the cowardly barbarians of Hamas to BLM, she hit the nail on the head without even realizing how right she was.

Both are Hate Groups, formed to take over and tear down countries and cultures which brave men and women have given their lives to build, secure, and protect. 

Rep. Cori Bush is a hateful little nobody who is a stain on the floor of the House of Representatives.

If she loves the Palestinians so much, she should move to the Gaza Strip and experience how they treat women…

……and take the rest of the Anti-Semitic Anti-Americans in The Squad with her.

Until He Comes,

Hamas Launches 7 Missles at Israel, “Squad” Member Omar Accuses Israel of “Terrorism” for Retaliating With Air Strikes

Image

FoxNews.com reports that

Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., accused Israel of “terrorism” following deadly air strikes in the Gaza Strip after Hamas reportedly launched seven rockets at Jerusalem.

“Israeli air strikes killing civilians in Gaza is an act of terrorism. Palestinians deserve protection. Unlike Israel, missile defense programs, such as Iron Dome, don’t exist to protect Palestinian civilians. It’s unconscionable to not condemn these attacks on the week of Eid,” Omar wrote on Twitter on Monday.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and other members of the progressive so-called “Squad” advocated for Palestinians after Israeli police and Palestinians clashed Friday at the Al-Aqsa mosque compound, a major holy site sacred to Muslims and Jews in Jerusalem. Tlaib targeted some of her statements at President Biden and Secretary of State Antony Blinken, questioning the White House’s reasoning for providing aid to Israel.

“I was 7 years old when I first prayed at the Al Aqsa with my sity [sic]. It’s a sacred site for Muslims. This is equivalent to attacking the Church of the Holy Sepulchre for Christians, or the Temple Mount for Jews. Israel attacks it during Ramadan. Where’s the outrage @POTUS?” Tlaib wrote on Twitter.

“American taxpayer money is being used to commit human rights violations. Congress must condition the aid we send to Israel, and end it altogether if those conditions are not followed. Statements aren’t working @SecBlinken. Enough is enough,” she wrote in a separate tweet.

Tlaib is the first Palestinian-American woman elected to Congress.

Omar took a similar stance.

“This is happening as Muslims pray tarawih [and] tahajud in Palestine. Families who pray all night during Ramadan, the mosque is like home. Palestinians deserve to find refuge in a mosque and peace in Ramadan. Where is the media coverage? [Speak] up against Israeli occupation terror,” Omar wrote on Twitter on Saturday along with a video of the violence.

Omar also accused Israel of “ethnic cleansing,” citing a New York Times story about evictions of Arabs in East Jerusalem.

“This deputy mayor is describing ethnic cleansing here, yet everyone is the West is pretending that’s not what’s happening to Palestinians. It’s reprehensible,” Omar wrote on Twitter on Sunday.

Israeli police firing tear gas, stun grenades and rubber bullets clashed with stone-throwing Palestinians at a flashpoint Jerusalem holy site on Monday, the latest in a series of confrontations that threatened to push the contested city toward wider conflict.

More than 305 Palestinians were hurt Monday, including 228 who went to hospitals and clinics for treatment, according to the Palestinian Red Crescent. Seven of the injured were in serious condition. Police said 21 officers were hurt, including three who were hospitalized.

Monday’s confrontation was the latest after weeks of mounting tensions between Palestinians and Israeli troops in the Old City of Jerusalem, the emotional center of their conflict. The clashes have come during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, already a time of heightened religious sensitivities.

Most recently, the tensions have been fueled by an eviction plan in an Arab neighborhood of east Jerusalem, where Israeli settlers have waged a lengthy legal battle to take over properties.

Ever since my collegiate days, from 1976-1980, when I was a Radio News Director, I have watched with stunned incredulity, as the American Liberal Political Ideology and its adherents, have vocally castigated the country of Israel for defending themselves against the violent factions of nomadic tribes , who wish for nothing else than their annihilation of both the country of Israel and their citizenry.

The irony of their naiveté, is the fact that, in the 1960’s, American Liberals were among some of Israel’s strongest supporters. However, as of this writing, they continue to blatantly back the Palestinians and the Terrorist Organization known as Hamas.

Opposing God’s Chosen People and supporting the historically nomadic people that call themselves “Palestinians” fits with Modern Liberals’ Political Ideology, which views modern political struggles as “Class Warfare”, being waged between race and ethnic groups. Liberals believe that the predominantly white West is  somehow subjugating the non-white rest of the world. This viewpoint is an extension of the class-based, rich versus poor, categories, which they intentionally classify people in, since the Presidency of their fallen messiah, Former President Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm).

For years now, I have referred to the intolerant political ideology of Modern American Liberals as “The New Fascism” because of their intolerance toward traditional Americans Faith and Values, including our relationship with our closest ally, since their birth as a country in 1948.

What we are seeing now, as regards the growing anti-Semitism in the Democratic Party, which began under Former President Barack Hussein Obama, is a result of an amalgamation of the political philosophies of the special interest groups who have replaced average Americans as the Democrats’ Voting Base.

Anti-Semitism is the norm in Marxism in all of its forms, fascism, and, of course, Islam.

All of these political philosophies are the anti-thesis of who the Far Left Democrats claim to be.

Ladies and gentlemen, I firmly believe that America is now fighting a new war against fascism.

It’s not a war that is being fought with guns and bullets, But instead, it is being fought through the brainwashing of American students in their classrooms  who then become Far Left Activists when they graduate.

And, it is being fought behind the walls that now separate those who are supposed to be servants from those whom they are supposed to be serving up on Capitol Hill..

It’s not our Brightest and Best who are dying on this field of battle, but rather, it is our Constitutional Freedoms and our form of government, including our System of Checks and Balances, which are dying an ignoble death, pierced by the arrows of socialism and political correctness.

By now, there’s some out there in the audience saying, “Oh Lord, the crazy old cracker’s overreacting again.”

No, Skippy, I’m not.

If you try to talk to a Liberal about this New Fascism, they will deny that there is any fascism going on at all. In fact, they will tell you that this is “the will of the people” and they will site Democratically stacked push polls in order to back their opinion up.

Liberals can not legitimately defend their positions, such as the suppression of the Second Amendment Rights of average Americans, the Silent Coup began by those members of the DOJ and FBI during the Obama Administration against Former President Trump, the “Caining” of Judge Kavanaugh, and now, the growth of anti-Semitism within the Democratic Party.

Fascism, in any form, remains indefensible.

All of this political unethical behavior by the Far Left Democrats is reminiscent of both the Russian Revolution and Hitler and his Brown Shirts “Beer Hall Putsch” which probably should have been expected, given the “New Bolsheviks” track record of Liberal Intolerance and aversion to opposing viewpoints.

Ronald Reagan, during an interview with Mike Wallace on 12/14/75, quipped…

“You know, someone very profoundly once said many years ago that if fascism ever comes to America, it will come in the name of liberalism.”

The man was a prophet.

Tlaib Calls for Boycott of Bill Maher’s Show for Slam of BDS Movement, Compares Israel to South Africa

Rep.-Rashida-Tlaib-1200x800

FoxNews.com reports that

Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., suggested Saturday that viewers boycott comedian Bill Maher’s HBO talk show after he devoted a segment of Friday’s program to bashing the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement, calling it a “bulls— purity test.”

“Maybe folks should boycott his show,” said Tlaib, who went on to compare criticism of the BDS movement to the controversy surrounding boycotts of South Africa’s apartheid regime in the 1970s and 1980s.

“I am tired of folks discrediting a form of speech that is centered on equality and freedom,” the lawmaker continued. “This is exactly how they tried to discredit & stop the boycott to stand up against the apartheid in S. Africa. It didn’t work then and it won’t now.”

Maher’s segment came one day after the Israeli government said it would deny entry to Tlaib and Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., for their support of the BDS movement following an appeal from President Trump.

Maher opined that Omar’s past comments, in which she seemed to suggest that “Jews control the world, control the money,” might have played a part in “why they don’t get a hero’s welcome.”

Tlaib’s tweet came in response to a post by Intercept columnist Mehdi Hasan, who criticized “Liberal” Maher for “railing against BDS, Palestinians and Omar/Tlaib with an all-white panel featuring no Palestinians, no Arabs, no Muslims, no people of colour.”

On Friday, the Israeli government said Tlaib could visit her relatives in the West Bank, including her 99-year-old grandma, on humanitarian grounds. But then the Interior Ministry released a letter purportedly signed by Tlaib in which she promised not to advocate boycotts during her visit. That appears to have lead to her decision to cancel the visit.

“Visiting my grandmother under these oppressive conditions meant to humiliate me would break my grandmother’s heart,” she said in a statement. “Silencing me with treatment to make me feel less-than is not what she wants for me — it would kill a piece of me that always stands up against racism and injustice.”

Yeah, right.

The Congresswoman has not visited her grandmother in 12 years.

She wasn’t given the opportunity to visit her for “humanitarian reasons” by the Israeli Government.

She turned them down because she would be watched the entire time she was there and would not be able to stir up the fanatics among the Palestinians and cause trouble for Israel.

So what is BDS?

Per their website bdsmovement.net,

Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) is a Palestinian-led movement for freedom, justice and equality. BDS upholds the simple principle that Palestinians are entitled to the same rights as the rest of humanity.

Israel is occupying and colonising Palestinian land, discriminating against Palestinian citizens of Israel and denying Palestinian refugees the right to return to their homes. Inspired by the South African anti-apartheid movement, the BDS call urges action to pressure Israel to comply with international law.

BDS is now a vibrant global movement made up of unions, academic associations, churches and grassroots movements across the world. Thirteen years since its launch, BDS is having a major impact and is effectively challenging international support for Israeli apartheid and settler-colonialism.

Rep. Tlaib, Rep. Ilhan Omar, and the rest of those involved in the BDS “Movement” are advocating for a nomadic people to “return” to a country which never existed.

Per discoverthenetworks.org,

The term “Palestine” (Falastin in Arabic) was an ancient name for the general geographic region that is more or less today’s Israel. The name derives from the Philistines, who originated from the eastern Mediterranean, and invaded the region in the 11th and 12th centuries B.C. The Philistines were apparently either from Greece, Crete, the Aegean Islands, and/or Ionia. They seem to be related to the Bronze Age Greeks, and they spoke a language akin to Mycenaean Greek. Their descendents, still living on the shores of the Mediterranean, greeted Roman invaders a thousand years later. The Romans corrupted the name to “Palestina,” and the area under the sovereignty of their city-states became known as “Philistia.” Six-hundred years later, the Arab invaders called the region “Falastin.”

Throughout subsequent history, the name remained only a vague geographical entity. There was never a nation of “Palestine,” never a people known as the “Palestinians,” nor any notion of “historic Palestine.” The region never enjoyed any sovereign autonomy, remaining instead under successive foreign sovereign domains from the Umayyads and Abbasids to the Fatimids, Ottomans, and British.

During the centuries of Ottoman rule, no Arabs under Turkish rule made any attempt to formulate an ideology of national identity, least of all the impoverished Arab peasantry in the region today known as Israel.

The term “Palestinian,” ironically, was used during the British Mandate period (1922-1948) to identify the Jews of British Mandatory Palestine. The Arabs of the area were known as “Arabs,” and their own designation of the region was balad esh-Sham (the province of Damascus). While some Arab nationalist writers, and coffee-shop intellectuals in Cairo or Beirut, developed the concept of Arab nationalism in large part as a response to Zionism, the terms “Palestine” and “Palestinian” were used in their traditional sense as geographic designations, not as national identities.

In early 1947, in fact, when the UN was exploring the possibility of the partition of British Mandatory Palestine into two states, one for the Jews and one for the Arabs, various Arab political and academic spokespersons spoke out vociferously against such a division because, they argued, the region was really a part of southern Syria, no such people or nation as “Palestinians” had ever existed, and it would be an injustice to Syria to create a state ex nihilo at the expense of Syrian sovereign territory.

Tlaib’s anti-Semitism is an example of the rampant anti-Semitism which is pervasive among today’s Far Left Liberal Democratic Party.

The false equivalencies which have been thrown about, for the last few decades all over the cable news channels and the internet by Liberal Pundits, paid and unpaid, trying to justify the murderous cowardly actions of the Palestinian Terrorist Organization, Hamas, boggle the mind of any rational, well-informed American.

While Israel has been one of our nations staunchest allies since their birth as a nation in 1948, Hamas, who took over for the Palestinian Liberation Organization, hates our ever-loving guts, and would behead every single American, man or woman, adult or child, without any regret whatsoever. Because to them, we are infidels, and “The Great Satan”, against which they are waging a “Holy Jihad”, not to mention the fact that Israel is our closest ally.

For Liberals, like Tlaib, the other members of the “Squad”, and the rest of the Democratic House to support murders and to advocate for a “nation” which never even existed is nothing but an exercise in stupid, dangerous naiveté for the sake of a political ideology…

…and proves that denial is not just a river in Egypt.

Marc Lamont Hill Loses Job Fighting for the “Right” of Palestinians to Return to a “Country” Which Never Existed

Marc_Lamont_Hill_kill_jews

Every since my collegiate days, from 1976-1980, when I was a Radio News Director, I have watched with stunned incredulity, as the American Liberal Political Ideology and its adherents, have vocally castigated the country of Israel for defending themselves against the violent factions of nomadic tribes , who wish for nothing else than their annihilation of both the country of Israel and their citizenry.

The irony of their naiveté, is the fact that, in the 1960’s, American Liberals were among some of Israel’s strongest supporters. However, as of this writing, they continue to blatantly back the Palestinians and the Terrorist Organization known as Hamas.

Opposing God’s Chosen People and supporting the historically nomadic people that call themselves “Palestinians” fits with Modern Liberals’ Political Ideology, which views modern political struggles as “Class Warfare”, being waged between race and ethnic groups. Liberals believe that the predominantly white West is  somehow subjugating the non-white rest of the world. This viewpoint is an extension of the class-based, rich versus poor, categories, which they intentionally classify people in, following the example of their fallen messiah, Former President Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm)

For example…

CNSNews.com reports that

Temple University professor Marc Lamont Hill, who was fired as a CNN contributor on Thursday, had earlier rejected criticism that his endorsement for “a free Palestine, from the river to the sea” amounted to a call for an end to Israel.

Elsewhere in his remarks – made at an annual U.N. meeting in support of the Palestinian cause – Hill also drew parallels with black Americans’ struggle, which he noted had gone beyond Gandhian non-violence, and said those supporting the Palestinian people should not shame them for “resisting.”

It is the “river to the sea” comment that has drawn most of the attention, however. A CNN spokesperson in response to an emailed query confirmed, “Marc Lamont Hill is no longer under contract with CNN.”

Addressing the U.N.’s “International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People,” Hill condemned Israeli policies – using such terms as “ethnic cleansing” and “settler colonialism” – and voiced support for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign, before ending with the loaded phrase.

“We have an opportunity to not just offer solidarity in words but to commit to political action, grassroots action, local action and international action, that will give us what justice requires,” he concluded. “And that is a free Palestine, from the river to the sea.”

The expression is traditionally used to refer to Palestinian statehood from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea, which would self-evidently spell an end to the world’s only Jewish state.

The slogan is popular at anti-Israel demonstrations around the world, and is frequently espoused by officials of Hamas and Fatah.

…Seeking to defend his comments on Twitter, Hill said that the “river to the sea” slogan “has a variety of meanings” and was and is “a phrase used by many factions, ideologies, movements, and politicians.”

The slogan “has never been the exclusive province of a particular ideological camp. The idea that this is a Hamas phrase is simply untrue.”

“My reference to ‘river to the sea’ was not a call to destroy anything or anyone,” Hill tweeted. “It was a call for justice, both in Israel and in the West Bank/Gaza.”

…In one section of his speech, Hill voiced support for Palestinians “resisting” and noted that in their struggle against discrimination African Americans did not use exclusively non-violent means.

“Contrary to Western mythology, black resistance to American apartheid did not come purely through Gandhian non-violence. Rather, slave revolts and self-defense and tactics otherwise divergent from Dr. [Martin Luther] King or Mahatma Gandhi were equally important to preserving safety and attaining freedom,” he said.

The Palestinians should be allowed “the same range of opportunity,” he said.

“If we are standing in solidarity with the Palestinian people we must recognize the right of an occupied people to defend itself,” Hill continued.

“We must prioritize peace – but we must not romanticize or fetishize it.”

“We must advocate and promote non-violence at every opportunity – but we cannot endorse a narrow politics of respectability that shames Palestinians for resisting, for refusing to do nothing in the face of state violence and ethnic cleansing.”

In the Israeli-Palestinian context, “resistance” has long-established associations with violence against Israelis.

U.S.-designated foreign terrorist organizations like Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Hezbollah style themselves part of the “resistance front.” (Hamas is an acronym for the Arabic name “Islamic Resistance Movement.”)

Factions’ statements hailing as martyrs those killed while carrying out attacks refer regularly to their “resistance” actions – which can include lethal shootings and stabbings, the firing of missiles from Gaza, and suicide bombings.

According to the Israeli foreign ministry, at least 3,159 Israelis have been killed, and many more wounded, in terror attacks carried out by Palestinian “resistance” groups since 1948.

Professor Hill is advocating for a nomadic people to “return” to a country which never existed.

Per discoverthenetworks.org,

The term “Palestine” (Falastin in Arabic) was an ancient name for the general geographic region that is more or less today’s Israel. The name derives from the Philistines, who originated from the eastern Mediterranean, and invaded the region in the 11th and 12th centuries B.C. The Philistines were apparently either from Greece, Crete, the Aegean Islands, and/or Ionia. They seem to be related to the Bronze Age Greeks, and they spoke a language akin to Mycenaean Greek. Their descendents, still living on the shores of the Mediterranean, greeted Roman invaders a thousand years later. The Romans corrupted the name to “Palestina,” and the area under the sovereignty of their city-states became known as “Philistia.” Six-hundred years later, the Arab invaders called the region “Falastin.”

Throughout subsequent history, the name remained only a vague geographical entity. There was never a nation of “Palestine,” never a people known as the “Palestinians,” nor any notion of “historic Palestine.” The region never enjoyed any sovereign autonomy, remaining instead under successive foreign sovereign domains from the Umayyads and Abbasids to the Fatimids, Ottomans, and British.

During the centuries of Ottoman rule, no Arabs under Turkish rule made any attempt to formulate an ideology of national identity, least of all the impoverished Arab peasantry in the region today known as Israel.

The term “Palestinian,” ironically, was used during the British Mandate period (1922-1948) to identify the Jews of British Mandatory Palestine. The Arabs of the area were known as “Arabs,” and their own designation of the region was balad esh-Sham (the province of Damascus). While some Arab nationalist writers, and coffee-shop intellectuals in Cairo or Beirut, developed the concept of Arab nationalism in large part as a response to Zionism, the terms “Palestine” and “Palestinian” were used in their traditional sense as geographic designations, not as national identities.

In early 1947, in fact, when the UN was exploring the possibility of the partition of British Mandatory Palestine into two states, one for the Jews and one for the Arabs, various Arab political and academic spokespersons spoke out vociferously against such a division because, they argued, the region was really a part of southern Syria, no such people or nation as “Palestinians” had ever existed, and it would be an injustice to Syria to create a state ex nihilo at the expense of Syrian sovereign territory.

I can remember the first time I saw Professor Marc Lamont Hill. It was on The O’Reilly Factor on Fox News.

Hill was your typical know-it-all Liberal Talking Head, a personality which made it all the more satisfying when O’Reilly made him look positively silly every time he appeared on his program.

Hill’s anti-Semitism is an example of the rampant anti-Semitism which is pervasive among today’s Far Left Liberal Democrats.

The false equivalencies which have been thrown about, for the last few decades all over the cable news channels and the internet by Liberal Pundits, paid and unpaid, trying to justify the murderous cowardly actions of the Palestinian Terrorist Organization, Hamas, boggle the mind of any rational, well-informed American.

Because to them, we are infidels, and “The Great Satan”, against which they are waging a “Holy Jihad”, not to mention the fact that Israel is our closest ally.

For Liberals, like the Former Cable News Political Pundit, Professor Mac Lamont Hill to support murders and to advocate for a “nation” which never even existed is nothing but an exercise in stupid, dangerous naiveté for the sake of a political ideology…

Hamas Leads March on Israel/Gaza Border, Israel Fights Back

673301-palestinian-clash

“Palestinians must come to the table willing to accept that Israel is a Jewish State and it will forever exist as a Jewish State.” – Donald J. Trump

Ynetnews.com reports that

The ‘Great March of Return,’ orchestrated by Hamas, draws some 30,000 Palestinians to the Gaza-Israel border; riots ensue, prompting IDF snipers to shoot at main instigators; Defense Minister Lieberman warns anyone who approaches security fence is putting his life in jeopardy; Hamas leader Haniyeh: ‘Israel’s threats do not scare us.’

At least 16 Palestinians were killed and hundreds more were wounded by IDF gunfire along the Israel-Gaza border, Palestinian sources said Friday, as thousands swarmed the security fence as part of “The Great March of Return,” called for by enclave’s militant Hamas rulers.

It was the deadliest day in Gaza in several months. Eleven of the Palestinians were killed during the clashes, a farmer was killed by pre-dawn tank fire in a separate incident, and four others from IDF tank fire at an observation post in the northern Gaza Strip.

The IDF said two of the Palestinians killed were members of Hamas’s elite Nukhba force. The military also said all of the dead were terror activists aged 18 to 30. According to Palestinian reports, one of those killed was reportedly 16 while another was 33.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas declared Saturday would be a national day of mourning. “Israel is fully responsible for all of the aggression in Gaza today, and fully responsible for the death of Palestinians,” Abbas said.

He ordered the Palestinian envoy to the UN, Riyad al-Maliki, to take all immediate steps to demand international protection for the Palestinian people.

The United Nations Security Council was due to meet later on Friday to discuss the situation in Gaza, diplomats said.

…The March of Return, Hamas says, is intended to be a weeks-long peaceful demonstration advocating for the return of Palestinian refugees to Israel.

The IDF is on high alert as it sees the march as a hostile attempt by Hamas to sabotage IDF infrastructure and the Gaza security fence, and fear it may lead to a mass breach of the border.

The Palestinians are trying to return to their own “country”. A country which never existed.

The term “Palestine” (Falastin in Arabic) was an ancient name for the general geographic region that is more or less today’s Israel.

During the 19 years from Israel’s victory in 1948 to Israel’s victory in the Six-Day War, all that remained of the UN’s partitioned territory to the “Arabs” of British Mandatory Palestine were the West Bank, under illegal Jordanian sovereignty, and the Gaza Strip, under Egyptian rule. Never during these 19 years did any Arab leader anywhere in the world argue for the right of national self-determination for the Arabs of these territories. A “Palestinian” nation and “Palestinian” people had not yet been invented.

Article 24 of the PLO’s [Palestine Liberation Organization] original founding document, the PLO Covenant, states: “This Organization (the PLO) does not exercise any regional sovereignty over the West Bank in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, in the Gaza Strip or the Himmah area.” For Arafat before the Six-Day War, Palestine was Israel. It was not the West Bank or the Gaza Strip — because the West Bank and the Gaza Strip belonged to other Arab states, and the inhabitants of these areas were not numbered among the Palestinians whose “homeland” Arafat sought to “liberate.” The only “homeland” for the PLO in 1964 was the State of Israel. However, in response to the Six Day War, the PLO revised its Covenant on July 17, 1968, to remove the operative language of Article 24, thereby newly asserting a “Palestinian” claim of sovereignty to the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

This ploy was revealed, perhaps inadvertently, to the West in a public interview with Zahir Muhse’in, a member of the PLO Executive Committee, in a March 31, 1977, interview with the Amsterdam-based newspaper Trouw:

“The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct “Palestinian people” to oppose Zionism. For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa, while as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan.”

[Yasser] Arafat himself said the same thing, on many occasions. In his authorized biography (Terrorist or Peace Maker, by Alan Hart), he is quoted saying: “[T]he Palestinian people have no national identity. I, Yasser Arafat, man of destiny, will give them that identity through conflict with Israel.”

But such admissions did not stem the enthusiasm with which these fictions were greeted by Western leaders. Within a few years, the USSR’s invention of the fictitious narrative of Palestinian national aspirations and rights of self-determination created the facade of morality and legitimacy that the terrorists needed in order to curry favor with the European Union, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

About Hamas

HAMAS (an acronym for Harakat al-Muqawamat al-Islamiyya, which is Arabic for “Islamic Resistance Movement”) is an Islamic fundamentalist group founded on December 14, 1987. As a single Arabic word rather than an acronym, “Hamas” means “zeal.” The organization’s founders were seven leading members of the Muslim Brotherhood: Ahmed Dassin, Abdel Aziz Rantisi, Ibrahim al-Yazuri, Sheikh Salih Shihada, ‘Isa al-Našhar, Muhammad Shama’a, and ‘Abd al-Fattah Dukhan. Hamas, in a sense, grew out of a 1985-86 Brotherhood movement — in which Ahmed Yassin was involved — that resolved to pursue its goal of degrading and ultimately destroying Israel by means of civil disturbance.

Describing itself as “one of the wings of the Muslim Brother[hood],” Hamas’s avowed purpose is “liberating Palestine” from its Jewish “oppressors,” whose very presence in the Middle East Hamas considers an affront to Muslims’ rightful sovereignty over the region. Hamas is best known for using violent methods — including suicide bombings against Israeli military and civilian targets — as part of its long-term strategy to destroy Israel and replace it with an Islamic Palestinian state. The U.S. State Department, Canada, Japan, Israel, and the entire European Union have named Hamas as an Islamic terrorist organization.

As you can see by the reaction of the Palestinian Terrorist Organization, Hamas and those who support them, including the United Nations and those nations who despise Israel for being the strong Jewish Nation that they are, they liked the advantage that they gained in their war against Israel under the weak and vacillating Foreign Policy of Barack Hussein Obama.

They are very upset, to put it mildly, that America finally has a President in Donald J. Trump who will honor both his campaign promises and our nation’s friendship with our ally, Israel.

President Barack Hussein Obama placed us in untenable position with his weak and vacillating Smart Power Foreign Policy.

Those who used to cringe in their desert tents, while calling us the Great Satan, laughed in our faces as they walked across our southern borders with the rest of the illegal immigrants.

That is, if Obama simply did not invite them to the White House and meet with them, as he did with the Muslim Brotherhood, the original founders of Hamas.

It was far more lucrative for the UN and the enemies of both Israel and America, when the United States “negotiated from a position of weakness” under the vacillating dhimmi who was occupying the White House.

To survive as a Sovereign Nation, Israel had to had strong leaders, such as the one they have now in Bibi Netanyahu.

So must America have a president who will man up and negotiate from a position of strength with both our friends and our enemies.

In United States President Donald J. Trump, these nations, including those who claim to represent the fictitious country of “Palestine”, now have to negotiate with an American President who has mastered “The Art of the Deal”.

…one who places America and her best interests, first.

Hamas can yell and scream and get themselves shot by IMF rubber bullets until they become so bruised that they all resemble Smurfs, but in the end, bringing in these “returning refugees” would only cause more Radical Islamic-driven violence and blood in the streets.

And, the “Palestinians” can continue to hate Trump all they want. However, moving the American Embassy to Jerusalem was the right move for both America and Israel.

And neither American nor Israel is going to change their minds because in business parlance, it is a mutually beneficial or “WIN-WIN” situation.

And, comparing that to Obama and Clinton’s “Smart Power!” Foreign Policy Disaster, isn’t that a refreshing change?

Barbarians at the Gates: Radical Islamists Being Transported to America’s Southern Border

obamamywork“Someone’s knocking at the door, somebody’s ringing the bell…”

The Washington Times reports that

A smuggling network has managed to sneak illegal immigrants from Middle Eastern terrorism hotbeds straight to the doorstep of the U.S., including helping one Afghan who authorities say was part of an attack plot in North America.

Immigration officials have identified at least a dozen Middle Eastern men smuggled into the Western Hemisphere by a Brazilian-based network that connected them with Mexicans who guided them to the U.S. border, according to internal government documents reviewed by The Washington Times.

Those smuggled included Palestinians, Pakistanis and the Afghan man who Homeland Security officials said had family ties to the Taliban and was “involved in a plot to conduct an attack in the U.S. and/or Canada.” He is in custody, but The Times is withholding his name at the request of law enforcement to protect investigations.

It’s unclear whether the network succeeded in sneaking other “special interest” illegal immigrants by border officials, but the documents obtained by Mr. Hunter confirm fears of a pipeline that can get would-be illegal immigrants from terrorist hotbeds to the threshold of the U.S.

Just as troubling, the Border Patrol didn’t immediately spot the Afghan man’s terrorist ties because the database that agents first checked didn’t list him. It wasn’t until agents checked an FBI database that they learned the Afghan may be a danger, the documents say.

“It’s disturbing, in so many ways,” said Joe Kasper, Mr. Hunter’s chief of staff. “The interdiction of this group … validates once again that the southern border is wide open to more than people looking to enter the U.S. illegally strictly for purposes of looking for work, as the administration wants us to believe. What’s worse, federal databases weren’t even synced and Border Patrol had no idea who they were arresting and the group was not considered a problem because none of them were considered a priority under the president’s enforcement protocol. That’s a major problem on its own, and it calls for DHS to figure out the problem — and fast.”

Mr. Hunter wrote a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson this week demanding answers about the breakdowns in the process.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the chief agency charged with sniffing out smuggling networks, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection, which oversees the Border Patrol and initially failed to find the terrorist connections, declined to comment. Homeland Security, which oversees both agencies, didn’t provide an answer either.

The group of six men nabbed inside the U.S. — the Afghan and five men identified as Pakistanis — all made asylum claims when they were eventually caught by the Border Patrol.

This is not a new phenomenon.

Fox News published the following exclusive report, on August 28, 2014. ..

Social media chatter shows Islamic State militants are keenly aware of the porous U.S.-Mexico border, and are “expressing an increased interest” in crossing over to carry out a terrorist attack, according to a Texas law enforcement bulletin sent out this week.

“A review of ISIS social media messaging during the week ending August 26 shows that militants are expressing an increased interest in the notion that they could clandestinely infiltrate the southwest border of US, for terror attack,” warns the Texas Department of Public Safety “situational awareness” bulletin, obtained by FoxNews.com.

Then, sure enough, more reports followed…

According to Breitbart.com,

On September 11, 2014, individuals or a group in Mexico hung a message to America over the U.S.-Mexico border wall condemning American support for Israel and declaring support for Palestine. U.S. federal agents discovered the banner draped over the primary border fence in Arizona’s Yuma Sector in a restricted area that could only have been reached from Mexico. The message also contained an image described by authorities as an anarchist symbol. The incident was kept secret from the American public by federal authorities. Breitbart Texas exclusively obtained the leaked incident report from federal agents on the condition their identities remain private.

The leaked incident report reveals that U.S. Border Patrol agents discovered the banner in the early hours of September 12, 2014, indicating that the banner had been draped over the border wall late in the night on September 11th. 

Then, on April 14, 2015, Judicial Watch posted that

ISIS is operating a camp just a few miles from El Paso, Texas, according to Judicial Watch sources that include a Mexican Army field grade officer and a Mexican Federal Police Inspector.

The exact location where the terrorist group has established its base is around eight miles from the U.S. border in an area known as “Anapra” situated just west of Ciudad Juárez in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. Another ISIS cell to the west of Ciudad Juárez, in Puerto Palomas, targets the New Mexico towns of Columbus and Deming for easy access to the United States, the same knowledgeable sources confirm.

During the course of a joint operation last week, Mexican Army and federal law enforcement officials discovered documents in Arabic and Urdu, as well as “plans” of Fort Bliss – the sprawling military installation that houses the US Army’s 1st Armored Division. Muslim prayer rugs were recovered with the documents during the operation.

Obama and his fellow Liberals continue to encourage the flow of illegal aliens entering our Sovereign Nation  because he and his political party envision them as future Democrat Voters.

By granting amnesty to these people who have broken into our country, as a burglar breaks into a home, as well as to their offspring, Obama and those who handle him, believe that they are strengthening the Democrat voter base, replenishing those ex-sycophants who figured out for themselves that Obama’s promise of Hope and Change, was not one of personal prosperity.

Hence, the illogical statement, heard time and again from Obama, that:

The most significant step we can take now to secure the borders is to fix the system as a whole so that fewer people have incentive to enter illegally in search of work in the first place.

The Radical Islamists of ISIS along with their Muslim Brotherhood Brethren, are predators, and, just like any animal, they will attack their prey by focusing on the area when it is the most vulnerable.

Our nation’s most vulnerable area is our porous Southern Border.

Obama and the rest of “the Smartest People in the Room” have never taken into consideration that Muslim Terrorists could be among the Illegal Aliens whom their strategy of Looking the Other Way and Blanket Amnesty will cover.

Or, if they did, Obama’s Chamberlain-esque attempts at diplomacy with the Muslim Brotherhood, falsely assured him and his Administration, that an incursion by Radical Islamists through our Southern Border was a fantasy, created by American “Right-Wing Extremists”.

The ignorance and naivete of Obama, his Administration, and his Handlers, born out of their zeal for political expediency, could be the instruments of our nation’s demise.

This is just another reason that November’s Presidential Election is so important.

Obama and Clinton’s ineffectual and apologetic Foreign Policy of “Smart Power!” brought us to the edge of this abyss.

it is time to elect someone, who will build a wall to protect our Sovereign Nation from falling into it.

Pope Francis: The Pope of the Far Left

th (7)The current Leader of the Catholic Church, Pope Francis, has chosen a very different path than any of his predecessors.

And, from this Christian American’s Viewpoint, that is not necessarily a good thing.

Yahoo News Canada reports that

Pope Francis’ hard-hitting criticisms of globalization and inequality long ago set him out as a leader unafraid of mixing theology and politics. He is now flexing the Vatican’s diplomatic muscles as well.

Last year, he helped to broker an historic accord between Cuba and the United States after half a century of hostility.

This past week, his office announced the first formal accord between the Vatican and the State of Palestine — a treaty that gives legal weight to the Holy See’s longstanding recognition of de-facto Palestinian statehood despite clear Israeli annoyance.

The pope ruffled even more feathers in Turkey last month by referring to the massacre of up to 1.5 million Armenians in the early 20th century as a “genocide”, something Ankara denies.

After the inward-looking pontificate of his scholarly predecessor, Pope Benedict, Francis has in some ways returned to the active Vatican diplomacy practiced by the globetrotting Pope John Paul II, widely credited for helping to end the Cold War.

Much of his effort has concentrated on improving relations between different faiths and protecting the embattled Middle East Christians, a clear priority for the Catholic Church.

However in an increasingly fractured geopolitical world, his diplomacy is less obviously aligned to one side in a global standoff between competing blocs than that of John Paul’s 27-year-long papacy.

This is reinforced by his status as the world’s first pope from Latin America, a region whose turbulent history, widespread poverty and love-hate relationship with the United States has given him an entirely different political grounding from any of his European predecessors.

“Under this pope, the Vatican’s foreign policy looks South,” said Massimo Franco, a prominent Italian political commentator and author of several books on the Vatican.

He said the pope has been careful to avoid taking sides on issues like Ukraine, where he has never defined Russia as an aggressor, but has always referred to the conflict between the government and Moscow-backed rebels as a civil war.

That approach is intended to ensure he remains more credible with countries like Syria, Russia or Cuba, all nations where Francis feels he can help local Christians best by steering an independent course.

DIPLOMATIC RISKS

Francis already has his hands full overhauling the Vatican’s complex internal bureaucracy after a series of financial and sexual scandals involving abuse of children by priests which date back decades.

But clearly deeply interested in how the world outside the walls of the Vatican works, he appears determined to use his position and the huge global audience he commands to challenge entrenched diplomatic positions as well.

The former secretary of state, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, a veteran insider whose office formerly controlled both relations with foreign powers and many internal Vatican affairs, has been replaced. His office has been downgraded to resemble a more classical diplomatic service while Francis has set a bolder, more personal stamp on Vatican foreign policy.

“He’s someone who’s capable of praying in the Blue Mosque in Istanbul and then talking about the Armenian genocide. He’s not someone who’s bound by political correctness,” said former Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini.

“It’s the diplomacy of a real leader.”

Whether it is to the taste of all the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics, world politicians with priorities of their own or even the many layers of the Church’s own administration is another matter.

With many conservative Catholics unhappy about the pope’s focus on issues like economic injustice and his relatively tolerant tone on sensitive social topics like homosexuality and the status of divorced people, pronounced views on delicate diplomatic issues could cause further division in the Church.

It is a point where he will be particularly tested in September on his upcoming visit to the United States, where some conservative U.S. Catholics are openly hostile.

After helping to foster last year’s agreement reviving diplomatic relations between Havana and Washington, Francis reaped criticism from many U.S. conservatives, including Marco Rubio, a candidate for the Republican nomination for president.

Rubio, the son of Cuban immigrants and a practicing Catholic, avoided directly admonishing the pope, but said he should “take up the cause of freedom and democracy” in Cuba.

That kind of veiled criticism from a politician who would normally be considered a staunch Church ally reflects the wider unease some Catholics feel at the change Francis has ushered in at one of the world’s most conservative institutions.

“Bishops complain that he becomes popular by attacking the Church,” said Franco.

“He speaks directly to the people and doesn’t respect the usual command structures. He decides on his own or with people who are not those who previously had a central role.”

In other words, he is the first pope who seemingly represents the Far Left Political Viewpoint.

Pope Francis seems more comfortable reaching out to Communist and Socialist countries, then he does to the Vatican’s Traditional allies, those countries who enjoy strong economies, built upon freedom and a competitive marketplace.

I know that I may sound like an old cracker, but my generation was blessed with three very remarkable leaders: United States President Ronald Reagan, British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, and Pope John Paul II.

These three stood for everything that was good about freedom.

All three knew the dangers and corruption of the implementation of Marxist Theory through the governments of man.

Here is what the wonderful and gracious Pope John Paul II said about an out-of-control Nanny-State (Socialist) Government:

By intervening directly and depriving society of its responsibility, the Social Assistance State leads to a loss of human energies and an inordinate increase of public agencies, which are dominated more by bureaucratic thinking than by concern for serving their clients, and which are accompanied by an enormous increase in spending, In fact, it would appear that needs are best understood and satisfied by people who are closest to them who act as neighbors to those in need. It should be added that certain kinds of demands often call for a response which is not simply material but which is capable of perceiving the deeper human need.

And, while this present Pontiff is romancing the Palestinians, Pope John Paul II reached out to God’s Chosen People.

In 1994, John Paul II established full diplomatic ties between the Vatican and Israel. He said,

For the Jewish people who live in the State of Israel and who preserve in that land such precious testimonies to their history and their faith, we must ask for the desired security and the due tranquillity that are the prerogative of every nation . . .

Pope John Paul II also said…

The historical experience of socialist countries has sadly demonstrated that collectivism does not do away with alienation but rather increases it, adding to it a lack of basic necessities and economic inefficiency.

Why is this present Pope supporting the enemies of Freedom…and of God’s Chosen People?

Being a peacemaker is one thing. Being an enabler of the Enemies of Freedom is quite another.

Bloody Gaza: The Dhimmi Purveyors of Smart Power! Press For a Cease-Fire.

Israel Hamas 72014Yesterday, the military operation launched by the nation of Israel to defend themselves from the Muslim Terrorist Group Hamas, who planned to invade Israel from the Gaza Strip, escalated into the bloodiest conflict ever seen in the Gaza Strip.

Meanwhile, United States President Barack Hussein Obama, Secretary of State John Kerry, and the entire State Department, seemingly, are taking the side of those who would destroy our staunchest ally, Israel.

I mean, you can read their contempt for Israel and her people from low-level bureaucrats, on up to the occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, himself.

Let’s start at the bottom and climb up the ladder, shall we?

The U.S. under secretary of state for public diplomacy and public affairs on Sunday expressed his regret for tweeting a hashtag in support of Gaza.

Rick Stengel used the hashtag #UnitedForGaza in a tweet published late Saturday night calling for an international investigation into the crash of a Malaysian Airlines flight earlier this week in eastern Ukraine.

Hours later, on Sunday, Stengel removed the tweet and replaced it with a similar tweet using the hashtag #unitedforukraine.

Stengel added a tweet that read, “Earlier tweet with wrong hashtag was a mistake. My bad.”

Uh huh. Riiight.

Let’s climb another step up the Departmental Ladder…

The Jerusalem Post reports that

US Secretary of State John Kerry appeared to express frustration with Israel’s operation in Gaza privately while publicly trumpeting the Jewish State’s right to defend itself.

According to Politico, an open mic caught Kerry saying to an aide over the phone prior to an interview with Fox News Sunday, “It’s a hell of a pinpoint operation, it’s a hell of a pinpoint operation.”

Kerry appeared to be expressing frustration that the Israeli ground invasion was spiraling out of control in the conversation.

“We’ve got to get over there. Thank you John. I think John, we ought to go tonight. I think it’s crazy to be sitting around.”

In the interview itself, Kerry called on Hamas to consider a cease-fire. “It is important for Hamas to now step up and be reasonable and understand that (if) you accept the cease-fire, you save lives.”

Kerry also said that the United States believes Israel has a right to defend itself from rockets fired from Gaza and from attacks launched from cross-border tunnels.

[Words mean things.]

“You have a right to go in and take out those tunnels,” Kerry told Fox News. “We completely support that. And we support Israel’s right to defend itself against rockets that are continuing to come in.”

Israel, which has accused Palestinian terror group Hamas of using civilians as human shields by launching rockets from residential areas, sent ground forces into the Gaza Strip on Thursday after 10 days of air, naval and artillery barrages failed to stop the salvos.

At least 62 Palestinians were killed on Sunday in Israeli shelling of one Gaza neighborhood. The IDF announced early Sunday morning that two Israeli soldiers were killed in Gaza on Saturday, bringing the total number of Israeli military casualties to five since the start of the ground offensive.

In a separate interview on CNN, Kerry said President Barack Obama will ask him to go to the Middle East soon to aid in efforts to secure a cease-fire.

Speaking of The Lightbringer, what did the Head Dhimmi have to say about the War in Gaza?

Yahoo News has the story…

President Barack Obama called for an “immediate ceasefire” in Gaza, on the bloodiest day of fighting between Israelis and Palestinians, and dispatched top US diplomat John Kerry for talks with regional leaders.

Obama spoke by telephone with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to express his concern after more than 100 Palestinians and 13 Israeli soldiers were killed in one day.

Obama, who also condemned attacks by Hamas on Israel, “raised serious concern about the growing number of casualties, including increasing Palestinian civilian deaths in Gaza and the loss of Israeli soldiers,” the White House said in a statement.

“The president underscored that the United States will work closely with Israel and regional partners on implementing an immediate ceasefire, and stressed the need to protect civilians — in Gaza and in Israel.”

During their second call in three days about the escalating situation in Gaza, Obama and Netanyahu “discussed Israel’s ongoing military operation,” including “the loss of Israeli soldiers,” the White House added.

It said Obama “reaffirmed Israel’s right to defend itself.”

The two leaders spoke after Kerry did the rounds on US television talk shows, with Netanyahu also appearing on two of the programs.

Kerry will travel to Cairo on Monday, where he will meet with senior officials from Egypt and other countries about the struggle in Gaza, the State Department said.

The White House said Kerry will seek “an immediate cessation of hostilities based on a return to the November 2012 ceasefire agreement” and stressed the need to protect civilian life both “in Gaza and in Israel.”

According to the State Department, Kerry is standing behind Egypt’s initiative to back those efforts.

Because, of course, Egypt has had such a stable government for the last few years. No Muslim Violence there. Nope. None at all.

On May 24th, 2011, a man of courage conviction, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin “Bibi” Netanyahu, spoke before a Joint Session of the United States Congress. Here is an excerpt from that powerful address:

Peace can only be achieved around the negotiating table.

The Palestinian attempt to impose a settlement through the United Nations will not bring peace. It should be forcefully opposed by all those who want to see this conflict end. I appreciate the president’s clear position on these — on this issue.

Peace cannot be imposed. It must be negotiated.

But peace can only be negotiated with partners committed to peace, and Hamas is not a partner for peace. Hamas — Hamas remains committed to Israel’s destruction and to terrorism. They have a charter. That charter not only calls for the obliteration of Israel, it says: Kill the Jews everywhere you find them.

Hamas’ leader condemned the killing of Osama bin Laden and praised him as a holy warrior. Now, again, I want to make this clear:

Israel is prepared to sit down today and negotiate peace with the Palestinian Authority. I believe we can fashion a brilliant future for our children. But Israel will not negotiate with a Palestinian government backed by the Palestinian version of al-Qaeda. That we will not do.

So I say to [Palistine Liberation Organization]President [Mahmoud] Abbas: Tear up your pact with Hamas! Sit down and negotiate. Make peace with the Jewish state. And if you do, I promise you this: Israel will not be the last country to welcome a Palestinian state as a new member of the United Nations; it will be the first to do so.

My friends, the momentous trials over the last century and the unfolding events of this century attest to the decisive role of the United States in defending peace and advancing freedom. Providence entrusted the United States to be the guardian of liberty. All people who cherish freedom owe a profound debt of gratitude to your great nation. Among the most grateful nations is my nation, the people of Israel, who have fought for their liberty and survival against impossible odds in ancient and modern times alike. I speak on behalf of the Jewish people and the Jewish state when I say to you, representatives of America: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you for your unwavering support for Israel. Thank you for ensuring that the flame of freedom burns bright throughout the world.

May God bless all of you, and may God forever bless the United States of America.

Netanyahu was thanking the majority of American Citizens and their political representatives who have sense enough to recognize that God’s Chosen People, since their nation’s birth in 1948, have been our staunchest ally.

He was not speaking to the Liberals/”l”ibertarians, in this country and in the Obama Administration, who don’t.

The Liberal Meme du jour this past weekend was the claim that Israel is murdering children.

Well, if those cowardly Muslim Terrorists, known as Hamas, would stop using the children living in the Gaza Strip as human shields, then these innocent children would no longer be losing their lives.

Additionally, if Obama, Kerry, and the bug-eyed bureaucrats in the State Department would quit bowing and scraping before our enemies, and start support our friends, like God’s Chosen People in Israel,then perhaps our allies and enemies alike would actually respect this administration, instead of laugh at them and then ignore their ineffectual sanctions.

President Ronald Reagan said,

There are no easy answers, but there are simple answers. We must have the courage to do what we know is morally right. – Ronald Reagan

And, that, boys and girls, is the reason that Obama’s Smart Power! Foreign Policy has failed so miserably.
