[This post originally published Jan. 2008-but the establishment is floating Condi for VP again.--No thanks!]
If anything, the Secretary of State should resign!
Aside from the fact that Condi Rice is somewhat liberal on abortion, she most certainly has not been a real supporter of our ally Israel.
In fact, she does her level best to undermine Israel. Always presurring Israel to make concessions on this or that . Frank Gaffney is right. Condoleezza Rice behaves like a zealot. I go it one further and say she behaves like a pro-islamic palestinian zealot. She and President Bush have been busy spending $millions in U.S. tax dollars funding terrorism via the "Palestinians."
Lest anyone doubt that this is true here are the facts:
In 2006 Congress adapted the Palestinian Anti-Terrorism Act of 2006. The act requires that before any funds can be allocated to the Palestinian Authority, the President or Secretary of State must certify to Congress that the PA is not in violation of the bill's requirements regarding the PA.
Among those requirements, the PA must not in any manner promote or incite terrorism against America or Israel. Yet official Palestinian Authority media regularly promotes and incites hatred of Israel and America. Read the reports available at Palestinian Media Watch. Other articles are at the bottom of this post.
In addition, the Anti-Terrorism Act also reqiured that all terrorist infrastrutures be dismantled and the terrorist militias disarmed. Abbas has made no attempt to do so. Members of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade terrorist organization are also members of Abbas's security services with his knowledge.
It is a given that Sect. Rice and the President are aware of this. But they turn a blind eye. To support the Palestinian Authority with U.S. tax dollars is to support terrorism.
Then there is the Lebanon situation.
The contents of a letter just now coming to light, written by Israeli Asst. Deputy Ambassador to the U.N., Daniel Carmon, entitled "Security Council Discussions", details discussion between former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton and the Israeli Ambassador to the U.N. Dan Gillerman, during the 2nd Lebanon War [Hizbullah].
In the letter, Carmon relates that former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., John Bolton, complained that Condi Rice had caved in to the French and Lebanese over the terms of a cease fire.
In actuallity the French and Lebanese were doing the bidding of the Arab League, which means that Condi Rice was really caving in to the Arabs.
To refresh one's memory, at first, it was the U.S. position to have a strong "Chapter 7 Res." which would give an "international force" an agressive mandate to go after Hizbullah in response to violations. Quoted in a Jpost article Bolton said this:
"You'll recall the original American position was we wanted a very robust multinational force, not even under UN command. The government of Lebanon made it clear they did not want a multinational force, they did not want a Chapter 7 mandate," he said, referring to the part of the UN charter that would give a peacekeeping force robust enforcement capabilities. "They wanted pretty much what Resolution 1701 provides," he added.
That wimpy 1701 with no teeth in it, is precisely what Condi Rice agreed to. John Bolton did his job. Tried his best to get the French and Lebanese to come along side. But it was Condi who was in charge for the U.S. negoitiators, the letter states " Bolton said tonight in a conversation with Gillerman that the Secretary of State took the task of negotiations [over the resolution] upon herself, and she is personally involved in all of its details."
This has been the result: A weak 1701 Res., no enforcement, no robust force to go after Hizbullah, let alone any disarming of Hizbullah.
The UNIFIL observes only, and watches Hizbullah re-arm and re-supply.
Just the other week during President Bush's visit to Israel, Kaytusha rockets were fired from Lebanon by Hizbullah.
A cease fire was prematurely imposed on Israel just when a major ground offensive was unfolding.
Now in addition there is this:
Condi Rice has acted to provide weapons for Abbas's Fatah even though terrorists are among it's members.
Rice pressured Israel to turn control of security of Gaza/Egypt border crossing over to the Palestinian Authority. Expecting the terrorists to keep the terrorists out is never a good idea.
Rice is pressuring Israel to divide their capital city of Jerusalem [which will never happen!]
Rice pressures Israel to make travel easier for terrorists.
Rice wants $500 million U.S. taxpayer money to throw down that financial sink hole called the Palestinian Authority. Even though it is riddled with terrorists.
Frank Gaffney says Rice behaves like a zealot. I go it one further and say she behaves like a pro-islamic palestinian zealot.
In addition see what conservative Worldnetdaily founder Joesph Farrah had to say in 2005 over the prospect of Condi Rice becoming President.
Condi for Vice President? No!, not for VP, not for dog catcher!
The Most Outrageous Financial Scandal In U.S. History
Saul Alinsky is evidently, a FReeper?
“Saul Alinsky is evidently, a FReeper?”
Must be refering to yourself.
Don’t think you took the time to adequately read the post.
The rino establishment is once again floating Rice as a potential VP for whoever the GOP nominee is.
All of this is related without comment as to whether should would have been qualified or appropriate for any of these positions.
We already have a black homosexual in the white house, don’t need another.
I don’t think she would accept the position anyway. She just went through 8 grueling years of Bush Administration getting up everyday at 4:30 in the morning. She is at Stanford and think she is enjoying that. Leave the poor woman alone. She already did her civic duty for America.
I wasn't clear. I meant 'for who?' as in for Zero or our Repub nominee. She would be no different than the agenda Colin Powell brings.
Nope. Not even a very good try, on your part.
Alinsky was about being against individual competitors in order to weaken them.. Weirdly, just like Karl Rove.
And all those “concern trolls” months ago, who all seemed to be anonymously here on Romney’s behalf.
I’m being for someone. Dr. Rice. Someone I have long admired. Someone who contributed to the end of the cold war.
One of the good guys.
Who are you being for? That might be more informative.
How about you mention who you are for. I notice the Alinsky type posts first against Palin, then against Cain, now all of a sudden against Rice.
All seem coincidentally devoid of any position (for) anyone.
Who do you support please?
Thanks in advance. Toda’raba. :D
It is patently obvious how the establishment feels about a genuine conservative black in their gasps when Cain rose to the head of the pack. They, along with other GOP candidates (nameless at this point) spent hours searching for anyone to besmirch his reputation, after spending days, weeks, months and even years ignoring credible evidences against both democrats; i.e. Clinton, Kerry, Edwards and Obama as well as other Republicans.
Nope, the RINO/DC establishment/MSM are not about to allow the choice of the people (TEA Party anyone?) wind up with the nomination and VP choice, the candidate coming in second place, perhaps.
The entrenched DC establishment will fight to the death to prevent a conservative from holding the highest office - period.
I daresay that when it became clear that Reagan would gain the nomination, there was plenty of gnashing of teeth over lost opportunities to search Reagan's closet for a less than pristine past, especially a man who spent almost 30 years in Hollywood, there had to be something they could have tarnished him with but they lost out.
They don't plan on letting that happen again (and they surely haven't, witness Palin, for instances. We conservatives deserve to get some terrible liberal RINO for not only allowing the trashing of conservative candidates but even piling on!
“She would be no different than the agenda Colin Powell brings”
“Who are you being for? “
From the very beginning my dream ticket was Palin/West.
When Sarah opted not to run I leaned toward Herman Cain. But then he imploded.
At this point Michelle Bachmann is coming across better than the rest of them IMHO.
However, another dream ticket would be someone like Frank Gaffney Jr. who is conservative and has a wealth of both national security and foreign policy sense and experience.
How about Bachmann/Gaffney?,
How about we just agree to disagree about Rice then?
Sincere FReegards. :)
Condeleeza Rice makes me want to vomit.
Uh, uh, uh, uh...
That is all.
Exactly my thought. Either way, the woman’s significance is over. Just another slave to moral relativism.
