  • Elizabeth Warren on Hillary Clinton's embrace of her populist message: 'Eh'

    04/27/2015 3:19:50 PM PDT · 7 of 9
    Bluestocking to Zakeet

    It’s hard to think of a more pathetic profile in cowardice than Elizabeth Warren.

    There’s a serious split in the Democratic party at the moment. Elizabeth Warren, along with Big Labor and the Left, strongly opposes the Trans-Pacific free-trade agreement that Obama is currently trying to get passed in Congress and which Hillary Clinton also supports.

    So how can Senator Warren continue to sit around doing nothing when she has the opportunity and sufficient funds to enter the 2016 presidential race so that she can publicly make her anti-Trans-Pacific case, thereby saving America from, in her view, its disastrous consequences?

    No courageous individual who cares about a policy issue would ever respond with the word ‘’Eh’’ when asked to discuss the issue, as Senator Warren did today.

    Instead of Pocahontas, a more appropriate name for the passive, monosyllabic Indian hope of the American Left would be Sitting Bull.

  • Ted Cruz: Cancel Iran deal and move embassy to Jerusalem

    Ted Cruz deserves a contribution simply for returning the simple declarative sentence to political discourse to express the truth. Otherwise, all we’ve had is either Big Lies in our faces or mumbling, evasion, and banalities from decades of corrupt politicians.

    How many years has it been since the phrase ‘’he responded flatly: ‘Yes’’’ was written by a political reporter, as it was today regarding Ted Cruz, to characterize a politician’s answer to even the most simple question?

    No matter who wins the presidency, there’s hope that for once we can have an intelligent, articulate debate about serious issues during a presidential race, at least in the Republican party during the primaries, and in the general election if Ted Cruz wins the nomination.

  • Video: Bruce Jenner comes out — as a conservative Republican

    Bruce Jenner proved what Conservatives believe — that the Constitution embodies universal principles that every freedom-loving individual regardless of race, color, national origin, or sexual orientation holds dear.

    The reason the Wheaties company put Bruce Jenner on its cereal boxes after he won the Olympics was to honor him as an example of the best of America, an American hero.

    Last night, the liberal ABC network honored Bruce Jenner as a hero of the transgender-promoting Left by featuring him in an interview. But he’s still an American hero for having the courage to speak up for the Constitution.

    Seventeen million people watched the interview. Those viewers who have an inclination towards taking the path to trans-genderhood will be more likely to do so now following Bruce Jenner’s example. And those who have an inclination towards becoming Republicans and supporting the Constitution will also be more inspired to do so. All in all, a good night for Republicans.

  • Desalination plants aren't a good solution for California drought

    Bluestocking to Mean Daddy

    It’s bad enough that California has become the only place in the civilized world where its residents are prohibited from taking leisurely showers, it’s also becoming a place where its residents have virtually no hope that its many growing crises will be solved.

    This article shows that California’s environmental fanatics have taken on a new cause — preventing desalination plants from being built, just as environmentalists throughout the country have prevented the X-L pipeline from becoming a reality.

    However, the U.S. is not running out of oil, as California is running out of water, so the consequences of allowing the environmentalists to prevail could be catastrophic for California.

    First they came for the showers, and we did nothing...
    Then they came for the lawn sprinklers, and still we did nothing...
    And so on.

    Two weeks ago, after Joe Biden was featured all over the media for stealing a pacifier from a baby and putting it in his own mouth, it seemed like poor Joe had finally hit bottom.

    But now we know there was worse to come. Instead of merely stealing an object from a baby he stole from Israel’s supporters the joy of celebrating Israel’s Independence Day by blatantly lying that the most Israel-hating administration in American history was actually the best friend Israel ever had.

  • NBC's Seth Meyers Defends Hillary From 'Clinton Cash' Allegations

    It’s not only anti-Hillary books that are being published.

    In four days, the paperback version of Hillary’s very pro-Hillary and very disastrous and poorly received attempt at autobiography, ‘’Hard Choices,’’ will be hitting the bookstores.

    The book is now #5,989 on the Amazon 100 list, even though Hillary is receiving wall-to-wall media coverage and is the odd’s-on favorite to win the Democratic presidential nomination next year.

    In contrast, Peter Schweizer’s new book, ‘’Clinton Cash,’’ is #5 on the Amazon 100, even though it won’t be published until May 5th and its author is virtually unknown.

    If Seth Myers wants to help Hillary, why doesn’t he invite her on his show to publicize the issuing of her book in paperback? And why instead is he giving free publicity to a book exposing Hillary’s use of her position as Secretary of State to commit treason in exchange for millions of dollars from illegal foreign donors to help her win the presidency?

  • Did Putin Snag US Uranium and Sell It to Iran?

    If the Russians were true friends of the Ayatollahs and wanted to help them build nuclear bombs, wouldn’t Putin have sold them ENRICHED uranium instead of the kind that has required Iran to spend ten years spinning centrifuges with still nothing fissionable to show for it?

    In fact, if the Russians wanted Iran to have nuclear weapons, it could have sold them a ready-made Russian bomb.

    As for Hillary, it doesn’t matter what she’s done or how much the New York Times suddenly wants to spill the beans about her numerous transgressions, she will not drop out of the presidential race. She has collected hundreds of millions of campaign dollars in order to avoid what happened to her in 2008 when she had to leave the field to Barack Obama because she had run out of funds.

    Not this time. She’s in for the duration. That’s why it’s so foolish for the Democrats and the liberal media to think they can drive her out of the race and then replace her with their favorite, Elizabeth Warren. The only way Elizabeth Warren will be able to enter the race now that she’s vowed to stay out unless Hillary leaves, will be to break her vow and enter regardless of Hillary — because Hillary and her $2.5 billion of ill-gotten campaign dollars aren’t going anywhere.

  • De Blasio sets sights on presidential draft candidacy vs. Hillary

    04/20/2015 8:39:22 AM PDT · 23 of 26
    Bluestocking to Zakeet

    Any major left-wing Democrat who truly believes in the socialist policies they claim to espouse would have already jumped into the 2016 presidential ring, and those candidates would now be speaking out from coast to coast on the need to keep raising taxes, spending more taxpayer money, and all the other cherished causes of left-wing orthodoxy.

    But there are no such people, since Martin O’Malley can’t be considered a major Democrat. If Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, or Mayor DeBlasio refuses to get into the ring to fight for socialist causes, and if the left wing of the Democratic party can’t successfully draft a left-wing presidential candidate to oppose the centrist all-for-herself Hillary, then there might as well not be a left wing of the Democratic party.

    If that happens, it will be a major blessing for America. What will happen now is that either a leftist will oppose Hillary and destroy the Democratic party by splitting it in two ideologically, or the left wing of the Democratic party will disappear because no major left-wing Democrat will step forward to represent it in the political arena.

    So now it’s up to Bill DeBlasio. Will he wimp out under pressure from the Clintons like Elizabeth Warren did and make a statement that he will not run for president in 2016, or will he throw his hat into the ring and tell the Clintons to go pound sand? That will be interesting.

  • Clinton Embroiled in Scandal Again, Newsweek Frets Over 'Enemies' Discrediting Her

    Bluestocking to Cincinatus' Wife

    Both Hillary and her media supporters like Newsweek have to deal with the almost insurmountable problem of finding something good to say about Hillary.

    Hillary herself has solved this for the time being by not saying anything on the campaign trail except social niceties to those who show up to meet her and giving luncheon orders to Chipotle clerks. No speeches, no substance.

    But Newsweek has to say something about the leading Democratic presidential candidate for 2016, or it will go out of business. Which leaves it nothing to do but relate the sordid revelations about Hillary that keep flooding the airwaves but then express outrage that her political opponents might be happy to see the truth finally coming out about the woman they fervently hope to see sent back to Chappaqua never to darken an Iowa staged political event again.

    Since the stock market crashes every once in a while, and daily collapses of 100 points or more in the Dow are becoming commonplace, such as Friday’s 279-point nosedive, it seems like a good idea to sell the market short to some extent as insurance.

    Bearish ETFs therefore serve as insurance policies for those with lots of money in the market, just like flood-insurance policies serve those with expensive homes located on coastlines.

    Some of the lowest-priced bearish ETFs are TZA, TECS, and FAZ. When the financial hurricanes that are predicted to happen virtually every week by respected economists finally come, it’s good to know that with a few bearish ETFs your portfolio won’t end up a complete disaster area.

    Bluestocking to The Westerner

    Obama’s dream is to lead an assembly-line of death.

    First, Obama, supported by enough bribed and threatened Democratic Senators, will lift sanctions on Iran, allowing billions of dollars to pour into the mad Ayatollah’s coffers.

    The Ayatollahs will then transfer a large proportion of those funds to Russia in exchange for its new missile-defense system.

    Russia will in turn dedicate a proportion of its missile-defense earnings to maintaining its brutal war in Ukraine and possibly beyond.

    In the meantime, Iran will be spending some of its post-sanctions-lifting windfall to speed up its development of nuclear weapons — not just a single weapon to be dropped on Tel Aviv. Why stop with Israel when ‘’Death to America!’’ has become a popular battle cry on the streets of Tehran?

    And where will this Obama-created chain of destruction end? That will be the question for our next president, if America survives long enough to have one.

    After 911, Osama bin Laden explained that the reason al Qaeda didn’t hesitate to send planes crashing into New York’s World Trade Center was because America was a ‘’weak horse’’ — which it had been during Bill Clinton’s recently ended eight years of malfeasance in the White House.

    Yet even so, al Qaeda had enough respect for the U.S. at that time to keep its 9/11 plans secret.

    Today under Obama, ISIS feels no need to keep its whereabouts near our border away from public view, such contempt does it have for the current weak pussycat on Pennsylvania Avenue. When, not if, ISIS will attack us is the question.

    Europe is so weak that for years the world’s economists have been warning that a default by Greece, one of the developed world’s smallest countries, would cause the entire European economic edifice to collapse.

    Yet now we have Europe’s leaders obsessed with fomenting a virtual version of Kristallnacht by trying to destroy Israeli businesses on the West Bank instead of dealing with the existential threats to Europe’s economic survival.

    It’s a documented fact that the many U.S.-sponsored programs by universities, religious groups, and anti-Semitic Americans in general to boycott Israeli, particularly West Bank, products have been failures, as Israeli exports to the U.S. have increased substantially over the past few years. So if Europe wants to join in ‘’hurting’’ Israel’s economy by increasing its exports, supporters of Israel should welcome its participation.

    It’s incredible that it’s become a pipe dream to expect the leading Democratic candidate for president, Hillary Clinton, to make a clear statement in support of Israel’s survival against the world’s current purveyors of Hitlerian dreams of Jewish annihilation, the ayatollas of Iran. At least Obama is a Muslim.

    Fortunately, there are actions that American supporters of Israel can take to counteract the betrayal of Israel by the Democratic party and it’s large number of Israel-hating Jews.

    While I have many reasons to regret not being a ‘’major Jewish donor’’ I can at least be a minor one. There are many organizations — the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, to name one — that do important work helping the people of Israel. The more such organizations receive, the more money Israel can devote to its security needs.

    American supporters of Israel can also invest in Israeli companies listed on American stock exchanges; buy Israeli bonds; fly El Al airlines as much as possible on their foreign trips; and, of course, support candidates of the Republican party, currently the only major pro-Israel party in America. It’s better to light one candle than to curse the darkness.

    For Hillary, Maureen Dowd is the canary in the mineshaft who must remain healthy and happily chirping Hillary’s praises or her candidacy can’t survive. Yet, judging by Maureen Dowd’s latest column, the canary has already died.

    As of today, Amazon.com lists 3,808 works under the category ‘’George Washington Biography.’’ Does anyone believe that our worst president, Barack Obama, will not receive at least the same amount of historical interest as our best?

    The story of how our founding fathers built a great country has been entertaining readers for centuries. So it’s a virtual certainty that the story of how Barack Obama tore down the founding fathers’ achievements, particularly the Constitution, will also provide a rich motherlode of interest to readers for generations to come.

    And there’s no doubt that the New York Times, as one of Obama’s chief enablers in his rampage across everything Americans once held sacred, will receive its well-deserved share of historians’ disgust.

    Thanks to the liberal media, we still don’t know where our president for the past six years was born so that his birthplace can be declared a national monument like all other presidents’ birthplaces have been. What a treasure-house of revelations we can expect when historians no longer have to worry about getting their taxes audited if they provide the truth about the creature sitting in the White House today.

    Now that Obama and Hillary have made it clear that they’ve combined forces to drive Hillary’s candidacy forward, no other potential Democratic candidate has a chance against her.

    With Obama’s endorsement, he might as well have placed a crown on Hillary’s head in prime time on all three major networks. She is Queen of the Democrats.

    This development means that every registered Democratic voter in the country has been pushed out of the democratic process. The Democrats of America will have no more influence over who will lead them than the people of North Korea or Cuba or any other dictatorship.

    Will they even care about what is happening? Will they protest even slightly, or will they come out in droves to cheer and bow down to the new monarch that has been placed over them? This will be interesting to watch.

    Now that Ted Cruz has demonstrated he is superior to other Conservative candidates in being willing and able to speak out clearly and forcefully in support of Conservative principles, there’s no reason for Conservatives to support anyone else for president.

    If a Conservative makes speeches that are not as clearly and forcefully Conservative as Ted Cruz’s, is he still really a Conservative? If a tree falls in the forest and no one hears it, does it really make a sound? Unless the other Conservatives running for the Republican presidential nomination start making very loud conservative sounds capable of drowning out Ted Cruz’s, they might as well drop out of the race.

    No one will follow an uncertain trumpet into battle, yet that’s all Ted Cruz’s fellow Conservatives are offering. They haven’t even shown the energy or conviction to get into the battle by declaring their candidacies. And now that Hillary will be monopolizing the media for the foreseeable future, who will be paying attention to the Republicans who still haven’t been able get their acts together?

Even the liberal media joined in the fun, they were so annoyed, and a Republican now serves the people of Colorado in his place in the Senate.

    So let the mockery begin as Hillary tries to turn the Democratic party into an adjunct of the National Organization for Women.

    As Hillary’s weekend announcement approaches, the Democratic party seems to be filled with the same glowing optimism that the Simon and Schuster Company must have felt during the days before Hillary’s highly anticipated memoir came out last year.

    Of course, the publishing disaster Hillary’s book turned out to be might not be repeated in the political arena. We know Democrats don’t like to read, or liberal newspapers wouldn’t be in a perpetual state of decline.

    Instead, what seems to attract Democrats to the voting booths if not to the bookstores are presidential candidates like Bill Clinton and Barack Obama who have warm, outgoing personalities and the ability to appeal to a large percentage of Blacks.

    Hillary is almost in a class by herself in the extent to which she lacks such qualities. In fact, her ability to raise hundreds of millions of campaign dollars from corporate executives derives principally from her coldness, which inspires fear that she will punish them once she gets to the White House if they don’t pay up. But coldness, meanness, and vindictiveness are not appealing qualities to the electorate.

    So how will Hillary’s candidacy work out? Probably her only way of ‘’winning’’ the Democratic presidential nomination will be to block out other candidates through threats and intimidation and be crowned at the DNC convention.

    Now that it’s come to light that the White House doesn’t take its foreign policy seriously but considers it all a big joke, how can foreign-policy experts discuss the Obama foreign policy seriously?

    It’s absurd for the Council on Foreign Relations, for example, to publish learned articles on Obama’s dealings with the world when such dealings are being orchestrated by a White House staff of teenage goofballs playing around with the Internet.

    And what about the foreign-policy experts and columnists at the New York Times and other liberal publications? It’s laughable for them to continue to treat Obama as a serious policymaker. His obsessive public attacks on Bibi Netanyahu are the bullying taunts of a disturbed third grader not statements of substance that deserve serious interpretation.

    One of the main reasons why individuals do interventions on family members is so that they can work out their problems in private in mental institutions without embarrassing themselves and those close to them. Instead, the Left has continually given Obama free rein to do the most foolish, embarrassing, self-destructive things imaginable for a chief executive in full view of the world, and now it’s come to this.

The Bibi thing lasted for months and what passions were unleashed in Obama’s raging breast, while Bibi just went on with his life, just like Scott Walker seems to be doing.

    The question is, if Obama continues to publicly fulminate against the Republican presidential candidates, what will Hillary have left to do when she finally announces her own candidacy?

    Since the Clintons have never been able to run on their records, they created the politics of personal destruction to unleash on their opponents instead, but now that Obama seems determined to get into the act, will Hillary be able to elbow her way into the spotlight for the 2016 campaign season so we can at least hear a few screeching tirades before it’s all over?

    This is already different from 2012.

    In 2012, no Conservative Republican candidate immediately jumped out to dominate the Tea Party and Evangelical wings of the party as Ted Cruz has done barely a week after announcing his candidacy.

    Also, no Republican candidate in 2012 had as much charisma or had as strong a history of sticking to his Conservative principles, even to the point of shutting down the government, as Ted Cruz. And no 2012 candidate was a magna cum laude graduate of the Harvard Law School or had won national debating championships during his college years.

    Rand Paul and Jeb Bush are amateurs compared to Ted Cruz in every way except their having been born into political families with wealthy donor bases.

    But what good will all the fat-cat money in Republican America do against a candidate like Ted Cruz who is quickly on his way to so dominating the Conservative base that no other Republican candidate will be able to attack him without losing the Conservative vote in the primaries and therefore the nomination?

    Ted Cruz can afford to be nice to Rand Paul, but Rand Paul can’t afford NOT to be nice to Ted Cruz, and since Rand Paul has never exhibited much friendliness on the political scene, that will be a tall order.

    If Ted Cruz were president and he started a war in the same way he’s started his campaign, the U.S. would have been well on the way to winning the war by now.

    He planned his first week as a presidential candidate as thoroughly as the Allies planned the Normandy invasion. His first objective was winning support from the two major pillars of the Republican base — Evangelicals and Tea-Partiers — and he’s been extremely successful in his efforts.

    Now it’s on to Berlin, with virtually no one in his path prepared to stop him, all the while adding more troops and contributions by the day.

    Jeb Bush hasn’t even gotten out of bed yet, presidential-campaignwise, compared to Ted Cruz. And once Hillary announces her candidacy in a week or so, the media will be All-Hillary-All-the-Time, and Republicans will be focused on defeating her, with Ted Cruz leading the effort since he’ll already be the Republicans’ lone well-established candidate.

    Since Ted Cruz chose to emphasize his religious principles by announcing his presidential candidacy at Liberty University, the appropriate place for Jeb Bush to announce HIS candidacy would be at Washington’s Chamber of Commerce headquarters.

    In fact, where will Jeb Bush announce his candidacy? He can’t be surrounded by his family, since the sight of the Bush clan would not only emphasize Jeb’s nepotism but also revive unpleasant memories such as the last awful period of the GWB administration which led to the election of Obama.

    Maybe Jeb can announce his candidacy for president in Spanish since his wife is from Mexico. And would anyone really care if his speech wasn’t translated into English? However, the fact that Ted Cruz, an actual Hispanic-American, is also running for the Republican nomination could put the damper on Jeb’s playing the Hispanic card.

    If the threatened pizza-shop owners can take in more than $800,000 in less than a week for standing up for their religious beliefs, think of the deluge of campaign contributions Ted Cruz must be taking in by giving speeches strongly supporting the virtues of freedom of religion.

    Because a liberal reporter wanted to create a major news story, the battle lines between death-threatening gay activists and hardworking Christians who want to do their jobs without having to sacrifice their religious beliefs has been firmly drawn.

    So what will Hillary do after she announces her candidacy for president? Unless she comes out forcefully on the side of the gay activists, she’ll be attacked by them and lose many Democratic votes in the primaries; but if she comes out on the side of religious freedom with Ted Cruz and her own husband who signed a freedom of religion act in 1993, she’ll be booed by the vast majority of Democrats all the way to the next DNC convention.

    The last thing the Democrats need is a gays vs. Christians media brouhaha just as Hillary is preparing to officially announce her intention to become president of the United States, land of the still mostly free but with a 3% gay population trying to take on the other 97%.

    It’s no surprise that liberals acted like liberals in the Indiana freedom-of-religion brouhaha.

    What’s surprising is that the self-declared conservative Governor of Indiana surrendered to the liberals almost immediately after they spoke out, instead of standing up for the Freedom of Religion bill he recently signed, which, like all similar bills is perfectly constitutional.

    Conservatives can’t win battles if the soldiers we elect to lead us can’t endure the slightest bit of unpleasantness before running off the battlefield.

    Any person who believes in a religion or cause can’t wait to speak out on its behalf. The Governor of Indiana had the whole media world in front of him to make his case for religious freedom and yet he refused to speak about anything but his sudden conversion to liberalism.

    Why was Ted Cruz the first Republican to announce his presidential candidacy?

    Probably because the others couldn’t see themselves standing up to the barrage of inevitable liberal media attacks without being hurt. Yet not only has Ted Cruz not been hurt by being the first candidate to announce, he’s gained serious momentum by doing so.

    He’s been able to take on the Mika Brzezinskis and other liberal annoyances with one hand tied behind his back and come out a winner — which will continue to bring joy to the 80% of Americans who dislike the liberal media and have been waiting for someone to come along and courageously present the truth on other news outlets besides Fox News.

    Can the Chris Christies and Rand Pauls do such a thing? Can they go up against Ted Cruz himself and come out a winner? Every day it looks more and more unlikely.

    Now everyone paying attention, even liberal reporters, know that you can buy a sweater for $1 at Kohl’s.

    What a wonderful public-relations bonanza Republican Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin has created for Kohl Department Stores, whose headquarters are located in Wisconsin and whose former CEO and heir to the Kohl Department Stores fortunes is former Democratic Wisconsin Senator Herb Kohl who ‘’served’’ for almost 25 years in the Senate.

    As it turns out, former Senator Kohl’s major service to Wisconsin and maybe eventually to the nation, was that his liberal policies were such failures that they gave Wisconsonites little hope of a future unless they started electing Conservative Republicans like Scott Walker to clean up the messes the Democrats had created and balance the State’s budget before it went bankrupt.

    So now, after Scott Walker did such an outstanding job as Governor, he’s earned his leadership spot in the 2016 Republican Presidential sweepstakes. If Herb Kohl and his fellow liberals had been even borderline acceptable in running governments, Scott Walker would never have risen to the lofty spot he now occupies. So it’s only fitting that Scott Walker should help Kohl’s Department Stores increase its profits.

    What will happen when the Republican presidential hopefuls start declaring their candidacies, complete with speeches unequivocally supporting Israel, thereby drawing a distinct line between the pro-Israel Republicans and the anti-Israel Democrats?

    Since the vast majority of Americans are pro-Israel, how will the Democrats, led by their obsessively anti-Israel leader, be able to win elections? Only if Obama stops publicly fulminating about his hatred toward Israel and its leader can the Democrats hope to survive. But, being obsessed, Obama probably can’t control his outbursts.

    If AIPAC does continue to support Democratic politicians, it should, for the sake of honesty, change its name to the American-Iranian Public Affairs Committee because Democrats have now taken the side of Iran against Israel.

    If this allegation about Obama threatening to shoot down Israeli planes is true and Netanyahu has documentary evidence to support it, he has a moral obligation to present the evidence on his trip here.

    The purpose of Netanyahu’s speeches to AIPAC and Congress is to make the case for the survival of his people by preventing Iran from creating nuclear bombs, and the withholding of any evidence that could move his case forward would be like an defense attorney withholding evidence that could keep his client from ending up in the electric chair.

    If Netanyahu’s speeches are not clear, hard-hitting, and accompanied by documentary evidence such as satellite photos to prove that Iran has installed long-range missiles capable of hitting U.S. cities, he’d be better off staying home.

    That’s because if Netanyahu sinks into delivering mere rhetoric about the importance of maintaining the Israeli-American ties that Obama has already severed, it will confirm the allegations that Obama is primarily interested in using his American speeches to boost his election campaign, not to help Israel survive against a nuclear-arming enemy.

    Poor Israel if Netanyahu exposes himself as just another self-seeking politician. That would mean Israeli voters would then be faced with having to choose between two political hacks to lead them in these perilous times.

    These aren’t normal times when Jews can safely indulge themselves in philosophically discussing their Zionist or non-Zionist differences.

    Iran has long declared its hatred for Israel. It has also declared its intention to destroy it and is now attempting to build nuclear weapons to carry out its final solution to the Israel question — just as the Third Reich in Germany once intended to build death camps for European Jews to carry out ITS version of the Final Solution, and, since it was not prevented from doing so, went ahead and murdered six million Jews.

    Today, our president has taken the side of the Israel-hating Iranians. He wants to help them build the nuclear weapons they so desire so that they can ‘’wipe Israel off the map,’’ as they’ve previously stated.

    In these circumstances, there are no gray areas. One either supports the Iranians, their anti-Israel intentions, and their champion Barack Obama, or they support the prime minister of Israel who wants to protect his country from annihilation.

    The fact that Jewish Americans like Dianne Feinstein have reached the point where they have chosen to support Obama and the Iranians instead of Benjamin Netanyahu and their Jewish brothers and sisters in Israel whom the Iranians would like to destroy marks a dark chapter for Judaism in America.

    But if Judaism has survived for more than three thousand years, it is also likely to survive the sneering attacks by Dianne Feinstein. And since Jews have not only survived but have also written the histories of their struggles and of their enemies, it is likely that Senator Feinstein will not fare well in the annals of her people.

    It’s hard to decide which is worse — a president who refuses to allow Congress to weigh in on anything it wants to weigh in on, or a Congress that refuses to stand up for itself and the Constitution by defying such tyrannical dictates.

    Even if John Boehner and Mitch McConnell cave in to the president, is there not a single Republican in Congress or the Senate willing to stand up in the House or Senate chambers and speak in favor of their Constitutional rights? Someone who will recite the relevant passages of the Constitution and Federalist Papers assuring Congress the right to weigh in on treaties? Who will even ACT like he cares even if he doesn’t?

    Where are Ted Cruz and Rand Paul who once spent hours filibustering before the Senate, even reading passages from Doctor Seuss, to promote issues we can’t even remember, now that a constitutional crisis is upon us and we need their voices to be raised in the Senate and anywhere else they can find a microphone?

    Dictatorship is coming, but apparently not a single Paul Revere exists in the entire Republican Congressional caucus who will alert the American people to it before it crushes us.

    This article raises some interesting questions.

    For example, if Netanyahu has been so single-mindedly opposed to Iran’s developing nuclear weapons, why hasn’t he prevented it from doing so?

    Two previous Israeli prime ministers have destroyed nuclear weapons facilities in other Arab countries — Menachem Begin in Iraq and Ehud Olmert in Syria.

    Concerning the Syrian attack, according to Wikipedia, in 2007, ‘’after realizing that the U S was not willing to take its own military action, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert decided to adhere to the 1981 Begin Doctrine and unilaterally strike to prevent a Syrian nuclear weapons capability.’’

    There were no serious anti-Israel repercussions from those attacks, which prevented the blood-thirsty Saddam Hussein and Syrian president Bashar al-Assad from gaining nuclear weapons capability.

    So why hasn’t Bibi Netanyahu, also knowing that the U.S. under Obama has no intention of taking military action against Iran, not taken it upon himself, as his predecessors have in similar situations, to destroy Iran’s nuclear facilities?

    As for Iran being the chief funding source of Israel’s enemy Hamas, that wouldn’t be a problem if Netanyahu had eliminated Hamas as a serious threat during last summer’s war by fighting on instead of caving in to a ceasefire before the job had been done.

    No wonder Netanyahu is having trouble with his re-election bid. Every Israeli cabinet member from every position on the Israeli political spectrum was opposed to the ceasefire, since they did not want Israel’s citizens to have to go through yet another major rocket siege from Gaza. Yet, alone, Netanyahu gave in.

    And as for Iran’s funding of Hezbollah’s attacks on Israel’s Golan Heights, Netanyahu could eliminate that threat simply by fighting back.

    Israel’s, and the U.S.’s, problems with Iran will not be solved by Netanyahu’s acceptance of an invitation to speak to a joint session of Congress. Congress cannot help defeat Iran; Obama, who has become a major supporter of Iran, will certainly not defeat it either. Only Netanyahu by acting like previous Israeli prime ministers in similar dangerous situations can defeat Iran.

    But will he do so? If the past is prologue, no.

    No member of Congress with a conscience or knowledge of history would have a moment’s hesitation deciding which side to take in the current to-attend or not-to-attend brouhaha over a speech that the media has so over-hyped it’s becoming as famous as the Gettysburg Address and it hasn’t even been delivered yet.

    On the one hand, there is Israel-hating Barack Obama who wants to help Israel’s worst enemy, Iran, build nuclear weapons that could also be directed at Western governments including the U.S., OR Benjamin Netanyahu whose country continually faces existential threats, not only from prospective Iranian nuclear bombs but also from Hamas terrorists whom Iran supports.

    Three weeks after the attack on Pearl Harbor, Winston Churchill gave a speech to a joint session of Congress. If the Speaker of the House at that time had invited Mr. Churchill, whose country had been fighting a war against Japan’s ally Germany, to make a speech BEFORE the Pearl Harbor attack warning the United States about the dangers posed by the German-Japanese Axis of Evil, would the Pearl Harbor attack have been so devastating, so unprepared for? Would it have even taken place at all if Congress had taken Churchill’s warnings to heart?

    As far as we know, no British-hating, pro-German or pro-Japanese Congressmen boycotted Winston Churchill’s 1941 speech, as at least thirty Israel-hating pro-Iranian Democratic Congressmen will be boycotting Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech on Tuesday, but if there had been such people, their names would have lived in infamy, as will undoubtedly the names of the thirty anti-Israel, anti-Netanyahu Congressmen of today and their leader Barack Obama.

    To call the Muslim areas of European countries ‘’refugee camps’’ might sound harsh, but the term is actually a euphemism for what those areas truly are — breeding grounds for Islamic terrorists which, if not eliminated could rise up against their host countries.

    We’ve seen this in the Palestinian refugee camps. They were created when the Palestinians fled their homes in Israel when Israel won its statehood in 1948.

    The Arab countries with all their wealth refused to help the Palestinian refugees because they wanted them to remain wretched and angry so that they would rise up against the hated Israelis.

    It was inevitable that terrorist leaders like Yassir Arafat would arise among the embittered Palestinians and create terrorist organizations like Fatah and Hamas, which periodically send hundreds of rockets into Israel because the Israelis have refused to eliminate them, fearing the enmity of the world if they seriously fought back.

    But who is a major part of the Israel-hating world except Europe, which, by allowing Muslim refugees to congregate into little terrorist Palestines around its major cities will soon be sharing Israel’s fate?

    How hard would it be for the European Muslim terrorists to import rocket launchers and rain down death on cities like Paris and Amsterdam, which unlike Israel don’t have Iron Dome missile defense systems to protect them.

    Only the leader of Hungary is willing to stand up and protect his people against Muslim terrorism. And he’s bound to be attacked for doing so by the same Europeans who attack Israel for also trying to protect its people.

    As Joe Biden would say, this is a big f-—ing deal!

    All of Obama’s many foreign-policy disasters to date have been caused by his passivity — for example, his failure to act to prevent large-scale wars in Syria and Ukraine, his refusal to respond during the attack on our Libyan embassy, and his pre-mature withdrawal from Iraq, which is now fighting for its life against ISIS.

    But for the past month, the same passive, golf-playing, what-me-worry? Obama that we’ve come to know so well after six years has suddenly morphed into a kind of Superman of anti-Semitism, raging all over the place against what in his own crazy mind is his arch enemy — the mere mortal Bibi Netanyahu, whose life’s work continues to be trying to save his tiny besieged country from oblivion.

    Never before has Obama been so actively involved in an issue, even including ObamaCare which was primarily concocted in the evil brains of self-acknowledged liberal liars like Jonathan Gruber.

    Obama’s month of anti-Israel attacks leading up to The Speech by Netanyahu will be long remembered. And unless someone does an intervention on Obama and persuades him to apologize, his newly exposed anti-Israel hatred will be particularly long-remembered by Jewish-American donors when ex-president Obama starts asking for contributions to his presidential library and foundation and for hundred-thousand-dollar fees for his post-presidential speeches.
