The Turkish Dilemma

President Recep Erdogan is the Donald Trump of Turkey. He takes umbrage at anyone who dares challenge what he does or says. Challenge his policy and one hates the Muslim religion. Complain about human rights abuses,and one is in league with his enemies. His political party was denied a majority in Parliament which prevented him from changing the Constitution in order to give the President even greater power. His latest anger is directed at The New York Times which printed a picture of him leaving a mosque from which at least 100 men went to join ISIS. How dare he connect the President of Turkey with support of ISIS?

Here is the record. After refusing to launch any air strikes against ISIS, the man of action finally allowed–THREE. Of course, his air force launched over 200 air strikes at Kurdish forces which battle ISIS. To Erdogan the enemy is NOT ISIS, it is any Kurdish armed force seeking rights for Kurds in Turkey.

War Of Words Goes On

It is Wednesday and there must be a story in which the Donald Man says something about some female. If one is the Donald Man, then it is pro forma to take on the greatest evil in America–one Megan Kelly. Donald feels hurt, he feels abused,he does not like anyone, and when he says, anyone, that one means the Kelly girl. She is a Bimbo, she is a woman who dares pose questions he does not wish posed. “I do not think Megyn Kelly is a quality journalist. I think her questions to me, despite all the polls saying I won the debate were very unfair.”

I assumed when one engaged in debate that one expected people to pose questions. THAT is what a debate entails. The central issue is that the Donald Man does NOT respond to questions. He assumes a question is meant to allow him to rant and roar with brilliant one liners. “How will you end the ISIS threat?” Response: “Quickly.”

The irony of this entire episode is that Fox News which has smeared the lives of dozens of its opponents is now angry when their star is smeared.

Texas Death Beat

America remains among the few post industrial nations in which the death penalty is a norm.Of course, within the United States there is one state which leads the pack,and can anyone doubt that piece of territory is known as–TEXAS. The land in which one can carry a gun to church, to eat, to play is the land in which more people are executed than any other. Bernardo Tercero entered a store in order to do a bit of robbing. At this point the story gets murky. Somehow he wound up in a struggle and shot a man.

Mr.Tercero is by most standards an individual of limited natural intelligence. But, this is Texas. And, in Texas when your skin is of the dark hue, what else but death awaits. I can guarantee if he was a white millionaire, the struggle would have led to a sentence, but not one entailing death. Many Hispanics have been urging that he be sent to jail, not to death. The Texas Supreme Court ordered a halt to the execution. But, this is Texas, the land of violence. Just make certain when you blast away, your skin is white.

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

We offer samples of headlines that appeared in the world press along with our comments.

Russia, Moscow Times: “Ukranian Ducks Confiscated”

These western spies were caught in the act of quaking!

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “No Swimming At Beach.”

These days the sharks are everywhere.

USA, Newsday: “I Just Lost Everything”

I invested in our stock market?

Canada, Toronto Star: “Stop Topless Show”

These days going topless might make Republicans interesting.

Israel, Jerusalem Post: “I’m Alive”

Yes, Bibi, and raring for action with bombs on Iran!

The Fire This Time

I understand that when asked if the globe is undergoing global warming, anyone running for the office of president as a member of the Republican party is supposed to respond: “I’m no scientist.” And,furthermore, they are required never,never to add: “But I sure will talk to one.” The west of America is experiencing a fire wall of burning forests that stretches at least a thousand miles. Men are battling against these roaring fires, but the fight will not easily be won. Each day the media depicts the burning forests, but the only response from Republicans is they know a guy who says he is a scientist and that man says there is no global warming.

The current war in Syria began when severe drought forced thousands of Syrian farmers to flock to cities. The drought compels people in California to be careful with use of water. What exactly will finally get Republicans to recognize global warming?

No War In Korea–At Least For Now

The entire world has been on edge for the past few weeks as Kim Jong-Un informs the world that no one,no nation, no God, no religion, no billionaires can tell him what to do when it comes to defending his nation. The latest episode began two weeks ago when two South Korean soldiers stepped on a mine and were wounded. There is no question that North Korea enjoys mining the land with mines. In response, the South Korean government launched a loud speaker war directed at North Korea. In this “war,” anyone who could hear the loudspeakers was informed that life stinks in the North and guess who is responsible.

Here is how Republicans would have dealt with this problem:

1. Marco Rubio,”I’m no soldier so I cannot comment.”

2. Ted Cruz, I will man the border and personally deal with any North Korean immigrants.”

3. Jeb Bush: “As my brother so well understood –send in the troops.”

4. Rick Perry: “First, I have to find out exactly where this North Korea is.”

5. Donald Trump: “I have a plan,and I don’t intend to make it known to prevent those gooks from getting ready!”

Dark Days Ahead For Bibi

Recent reports from top Israel officials indicate that back in 2010, Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was ready to launch air attacks on Iran, but was held back by top Israel generals. Goes to show there are Israelis who think like the black dude from Africa. Imagine seeking to resolve issues via diplomacy rather than through bombs! Senator Harry Reid just joined those supporting President Obama and his quest for peace.

Ironically, President Hassan Rouhani in Iran has problems with war hawks, ready to match Bibi bomb to bomb. Rouhani told the people of Iran, “we consider this agreement a stating point for moving forward” toward peace in the region and the world. According to brave warriors such as Ted Cruz of Scott Walker or Marco Rubio, failure to demand bombs is a mark of the coward. As I recall, none of these “brave warriors” has ever served in the US military. British Prime Minister Winston Churchill who was attacked for negotiating with Communist dictator Joseph Stalin respond with: “Jaw, Jaw is better than War, War.”

Pope Francis Comments Upset Catholics

I recognize that Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio and folks like Rudy Giuliani or Rick Santorum are devout Catholics and certainly have a right to be upset these days. What about that stuff regarding “the idolatry of money!” Doesn’t that man know it is the wealthy who create high paying jobs for those working in fast food?? Robert Royal of the Faith and Reason Foundation is real angry at this guy from Italy telling we Americans how to live or think. “I was astonished by some of the things he’s said about public order. He’s the pope least prepared to do public comments in the past 150 years!”

After all, how does he dare to comment when prior popes like Pope Pius XII were willing to negotiate with Italian dictator Benito Mussolini. Then again, he knew enough to keep his mouth shut during the Holocaust. Now, there was a real pope who opposed abortion, adultery, gays,that is those gay of the sexual persuasion. The Catholic church has lost contact with many secular Catholics and silence Pope Francis, and there wille even more silence on Sundays in Church.

Yes, But No, Yes, I Think

The 14th Amendment was passed after the Civil War in order to ensure that former slaves were citizens. It was a revolutionary act which said that anyone who was born in America was a citizen. During the years following passage of this law, hundreds of thousands of EUROPEAN immigrants who entered America had their children become American citizens. This PREDATED any discussion of Hispanic immigrants.

A few weeks ago, Scott Walker came out in favor of the Trump Plan which would change the Constitution and end the right of American citizenship. A few days ago,Scott now says, maybe I agree with Trump and maybe I do not. He does not wish to get engaged in arguments over a “red flag” that upsets folks. So, as of this moment, he thinks he opposes Trump.

Stand Up For Christians

I frankly do not understand this commotion about ISIS or Iraq or Syria when the real threat to the very existence of the United States lies right here in our own nation. OK, so ISIS beheads a few people,after all they are just a bunch of Muslims, but what about the war on Christianity launched by the Obama administration? Is that to be ignored? Christianity in America now confronts the greatest challenge in its history. Just imagine, the black coated police will soon be knocking on your door and demanding that your son or daughter find someone of their own sex to date and marry!

Ted Cruz is among the few political leaders willing to take a stand for Christians. “What we’re seeing right now is actually Bible-loving Christians being prosecuted” because they do not wish to serve gays!

From now on I intend to refuse paying taxes to a government that protects gays and lesbians. It is my Constitutional right!

I will no longer halt at red lights because I do not intend to support the right of reds to tell me what to do!

God Bless Ted Cruz, living proof that sending your child to Harvard is a one waste of money!
