Netanyahu’s speech scores big in showdown over Iran

March 3, 2015

Barack Obama has his own reasons for continuing to contemptuously disregard Israel’s concerns regarding a nuclear Iran —- which presents a global threat that should concern us all. The rift between President Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has reached epic proportions leading up to Netanyahu’s address to Congress this morning.

On Monday, Netanyahu downplayed their increasingly strained relationship, but said he has a “moral obligation” to speak out against a deal with Iran that potentially threatens Israel’s existence.

Much to Obama’s consternation the Prime Minister was invited to address the joint session by House Speaker John Boehner. Dozens of Democrats including Arizona’s CD 3 U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva are boycotting the speech. Although no members of the Obama administration attended the event, Netanyahu was interrupted by applause 41 times.

Further sticking his finger in the Prime Minister’s eye, Obama announced he had scheduled a conference call on the crisis in Ukraine to coincide with the timing of the speech.

Still gracious while underscoring Israel’s right to defend itself, Netanyahu said, “My speech is not intended to show any disrespect to President Obama or the esteemed office that he holds. I have great respect for both. But while American leaders worry about the security of their country, Israeli leaders worry about the survival of their country.”

Netanyahu charged that Iran’s “goons in Gaza, its lackeys in Lebanon and the Revolutionary Guard in the Golan Heights” act as its proxies. Iran’s ‘global terror network’ poses a threat with ‘tentacles of terror region throughout the region.”

GOP Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) summed up the speech using these words, “Today, Prime Minister Netanyahu asked for America’s unwavering support for Israel, our friend and ally in a tumultuous region,” adding, “It’s unfortunate the Prime Minister even had to ask.”  Burr is the son of a Methodist minister.

Fifty Democrats  —- 42 House and 7 Senate members joined by VP Joe Biden, shamefully boycotted Netanyahu’s address. Many will remember Democrats at their own 2012 national Convention booing the addition of God and Jeering the mention of Jerusalem in their party platform. It’s in their genes.

This ad sponsored by the Republican Jewish Coalition aired in advanced of today’s speech.

Jeb finds few friends at Conservative Conference

February 28, 2015

Jeb Bush, the wanna-be Number 3 in his family’s presidential dynasty, encountered protests at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) Friday in National Harbor, Maryland.

The amnesty and Common Core supporter stands by his scheme to give drivers’ licenses to illegals. When he was governor of Florida, Bush also pushed for in-state tuition for children of illegal aliens. Few can forget when he referred to illegal immigration as “an act of love.”(video)

The Washington Times reported that conservatives who resent the GOP establishment foisting yet another squish Republican into prominence were organizing a protest of Jeb’s conference speech. In anticipation of such an embarrassing walkout, Slate reported Bush’s team resorted to importing supporters from downtown Washington, D.C. Chartered buses were scheduled to depart from K Street, the heart of the lobbying industry.

The walkout began shortly after Bush strolled on stage. As he continued to finagle answers to questions posed by Fox News’ Sean Hannity, greater numbers of attendees booed and then filed out. (video)

As the brother and son of the last two Republican presidents, Jeb Bush appears to think the presidency is now his due.  He’s obviously spent too much time listening to RINO strategist Karl Rove. Conservatives have been down this GOP Establishment path previously with mediocre or unrepresentative of the grassroots candidates —- Bob Dole, John McCain and Mitt Romney.

This time winning is more important than ever. In fact, it may well be crucial to our very survival. After two terms of Barack Obama and with Hillary Clinton looking likely to snag the Democrat nomination, there is no room for Republican blunders such as Jeb Bush.


Valentine’s Day Obama-style: A day for (self) lovers

With the world in turmoil, Barack Obama finds time for this:

 

 


Is civilized world at war with radicalized Islam?

February 8, 2015

Obama claims “99.9 PERCENT of MUSLIMS” REJECT TERROR

CNN’s FAREED ZAKARIA: Lindsey Graham says that he’s bothered by the fact that you won’t admit that we’re in a religious war. There are others who say that the White House takes pains to avoid using the term “Islamic terrorists.”  So my question to you is, are we in a war with radical Islam? 

BARACK OBAMA: You know, I think that the way to understand this is there is an element growing out of Muslim communities in certain parts of the world that have perverted the religion, have embraced a nihilistic, violent, almost medieval interpretation of Islam. And they are doing damage in a lot of countries around the world. 

But it is absolutely true that I reject a notion that somehow that creates a religious war because the overwhelming majority of Muslims reject that interpretation of Islam. They don’t even recognize it as being Islam. And I think that for us to be successful in fighting this scourge, it’s very important for us to align ourselves with the 99.9 percent of Muslims who are looking for the same thing we’re looking for. Order, peace, prosperity. 

And so I don’t, I don’t quibble with labels. I think we all recognize that this is a particular problem that has roots in Muslim communities. And that the Middle East and South Asia are….it’s very ground zero for us needing to win back hearts and minds particularly when it comes to young people. But I think we do ourselves a disservice in this fight if we are not taking into account the fact that the overwhelming majority of Muslims reject this ideology.

 Obama concludes the interview with this self-delusional thought:

“I am very confident that America is stronger, more prosperous, safer and more influential today than when I took office.”

Here’s another view from conservative pundit Ben Shapiro, who calls the tiny radical Muslim minority a myth. “We’re above 800 million Muslims radicalized, more than half the Muslims on Earth. That’s not a minority. That’s now a majority.” Shapiro cited the work of the Pew Research Center in his analysis. Shapiro is an editor-at-large with the conservative website Breitbart.com


Obama: “Terrible deeds committed in name of Christ”

February 5, 2015

Speaking of the evils perpetrated by sadistic murderers, Barack Obama noted, “This is not unique to one religion. There is a tendency in us, a sinful tendency, that can pervert and distort our faith.” Obama calls it “intolerance.”

Excerpted from Obama’s speech, punctuated with jokes, given earlier today at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C., are these words as he discussed “faith being twisted and distorted” never mentioning the radical Islamic terrorism elephant in the room but managing to equate Jim Crow with the horrific slaughter of schoolchildren, savage beheadings and the unspeakably evil incinerating a young Jordanian pilot alive just days ago. Obama referred to his “own faith journey,” without explaining where it began and where it took him.

And lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ.  In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.  Michelle and I returned from India — an incredible, beautiful country, full of magnificent diversity — but a place where, in past years, religious faiths of all types have, on occasion, been targeted by other peoples of faith, simply due to their heritage and their beliefs — acts of intolerance that would have shocked Gandhiji, the person who helped to liberate that nation. 


Obama: Radical Islamic terrorists an “organization”

February 4, 2015

The first order of business in defeating an enemy is admitting it exists

Barack Obama, shamefully revealing himself as the master of understatement, remains unable to utter the words “radical Islamic” and “terrorists” in the same sentence. Here he responds to reporters questions regarding the video showing the sadistic burning alive of the caged Jordanian pilot held captive by the radical Islamic terrorists who are now cutting large swaths through the Middle East and beyond.

Obama describes it this way:

“It’s just one more indication of the viciousness and barbarity of this organization. And I think will redouble the vigilance and determination on the part of a global coalition to make sure that they are degraded and ultimately defeated. It also just indicates the degree to which whatever ideology they are operating off of, It’s bankrupt.”

Then he quickly segues back to promoting his lie-based Obamacare.

Use of equivocating terms such as “organization” and “whatever ideology they are operating off of,” adding he “thinks” the global coalition will redouble efforts to defeat these sadistic maniacs is disgraceful.

The savagery exhibited in acts of burning the pilot alive, routinely engaging in the macabre beheading others, and launching a systematic massacre of nearly 150 innocent school children, so their enemies could “feel our pain,” is what these monsters are about. A CNN report including video can be seen here.

Let’s be clear. The “organization” is radical Islamic terror. The aim of their ideology is to establish global Sharia law. How can there be a cohesive plan to defeat this evil, if the leader of the free world is unable to bring himself to identify it?


AG nominee Lynch defends Obama’s amnesty policies

January 29, 2015

Sen. Jeff Sessions opposes Loretta Lynch; don’t expect AZ’s Sens. to show such spine

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), Chairman of the Senate Immigration Subcommittee, questioned Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch during Wednesday’s Judiciary hearing. Sessions asked Lynch about Barack Obama’s decision to bypass Congress to impose a sweeping amnesty —- and how this action undermined the rights of disadvantaged American workers. 

Listen to Democrat Lynch’s declaration that “the right and the obligation to work is one that’s shared by everyone in this country, regardless of how they came here. And certainly, if someone is here —- regardless of status —- I would prefer that they would be participating in the workplace than not participating in the workplace.”

Sen. Sessions is well versed in the law. Beginning his career as an Assistant U.S. Attorney, he was nominated by President Reagan and confirmed by the Senate to serve as the U.S. Attorney for Alabama’s Southern District, a position he held for 12 years. Sessions was elected Alabama Attorney General in 1995, serving as the state’s chief legal officer until he entered the United States Senate.

Read his reason for opposing Loretta Lynch’s nomination.

Attempting to deflect negativity, Lynch said that if confirmed she would focus on combating terrorism and cybercrime and would protect the vulnerable from criminal predators. Would that include vulnerable American citizens who are displaced workers due to a flood of millions of illegals, now given the cover of amnesty, complete with legal status and Social Security numbers?

Don’t expect Arizona’s U.S. Sens. John McCain or Jeff Flake to emulate the far sharper Jeff Sessions when votes are cast on her nomination.

McCain, along with Jon Kyl, Flake’s predecessor, supported the nominations of every leftwing Democrat to come down the pike —- including Eric Holder, Janet Napolitano (voice vote), and Hillary Clinton. The duo voted to confirm Obama nominee Mary Murguia as another liberal judge on the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Murguia’s twin sister Janet is the President and CEO of the National Council of La Raza — “The Race” — a group whose two-sentence motto is chilling to everyone who values equal rights for all: “For the Race everything. Outside the Race, nothing.”  

RINOs McCain and Kyl also stepped front and center voting in support of the nomination of Andrew Hurwitz, a politically connected leftist Democrat —- then an AZ Supreme Court Justice —- aiding his ascent to the already radical 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. The Arizona República was so thrilled, it editorially gushed over retiring Kyl, calling him a “statesman.”

Expect nothing less from Flake and his McMentor. Our bet is they will vote in support of Loretta Lynch’s confirmation.
