Bibi Feels Better About Obama

Among the enduring myths concerning President Obama’s foreign policy toward Israel is that he hates Israel, he hates Jews, he loves Arabs, and he is a wimp toward Iran.So, let us examine the record of Israel-US relations.

1. Republican President Dwight Eisenhower ordered Israel to halt its attack on Egypt in 1956. His Secretary of State refused to visit Jerusalem but visited Arab capitals.

2. Richard Nixon refused to provide military aid Israel during the Yom Kippur was until Premier Gold Meier threatened to use atomic weapons.

3. Ronald Reagan sold missiles to Iran.

4. George H.W. Bush and his Secretary of State were despised in Israel because they opposed West Bank settlements.

Barack Obama has sent Israel about $24 billion worth of military aid.

A Bush In Hand

The American people have experienced three men whose last name is BUSH. The father George H.W.Bush, unlike his sons, joined the military in World War II and fought with honor and courage in combat. He alone of those with the name of Bush can look in the mirror of time and feel proud for his accomplishments. He supported civil rights,he refused to allow Israel to push the United States around, and he did urge his son, George to think twice about going to war

George H.W. to son. “You know how tough war is son, you’ve got to try everything to avoid it.” Sorry, the son did NOT know anything about war, he avoided it during the Vietnam war.
George H.W. on Rumsfeld: “An arrogant fellow. I think he served the president badly. There’s a lack of humility, a lack of seeing what the other fellow thinks. He is more of kick ass man.”

George H.W. on Dick Cheney: “Just an iron-ass.

But, in the end, dad made clear to son, “it’s not Cheney’s fault, it’s the President’s fault. The buck stops there.

Jeb Bush Hates Government

Today is Friday and Jeb Bush is pushing a new idea in order to obtain the Republican nomination for president. “We’re Americans, damn it. The government is a parasite –we’re the host.” When asked about his energy level which came under criticism from Donald Trump, the junior bush made clear, “I actually have good energy every night.” And, no doubt, twice as much on Sunday–he is a good Catholic.

My problem with the statement.

Jeb Bush served as Governor of the state of Florida. His brother served as a President of the United States. His father served as a President of the United States. Stop me if I am wrong, but those positions place the person as HEAD OF A GOVERNMENT! So, who are you–the parasite or the host??

Turkey Heading For Dictatorship?

There is one trick that politicians use regardless of where they are in the world. The oldest ploy is to shout “the sky is falling, run for your lives and let me save you!” Turkish President Recep Erdogan first manufactured a terror plot by Kurds, made certain in one way or another that bombings and fear would sweep through the land so that he might emerge as the savior of the hour. “Blame it on the Kurds” is his slogan and just give him unlimited power and he will end the problem–the one He created>

The tragedy is that opponents are hounded, beaten, their newspapers attacked, and fear allowed him to improve this party’s voting percentage last week. He wants to allow a President to possess all power and do what’s best for himself–in the name of the People, no doubt.

ISIS Bombs Away

There is increasing evidence that an ISIS bomb was responsible for the downing of a Russian plane in Egypt. The plane departed from a small airport and we can assume those in charge of checking bags did not perform up to high standards of security. So, ISIS, has responded to President Putin and his entry into the war in Syria. I am surprised that Putin just forgot the Russian fiasco in Afghanistan which resulted in the death of thousands of Russian soldiers and played a role in the collapse of the Soviet Union.

There are reports that Iranian generals in Syria are furious that Iran has entered the war. They are witnessing Iranian soldiers die and some general either have “retired” or have faced a court martial for refusing to carry out war orders. In other words, ISIS is winning the battle because it contains soldiers who BELIEVE in the fight.

Vladimir, you ain’t seen anything yet!

So, What About Those Refugees?

By the end of this year nearly two million refugees will have somehow made the journey from war and destruction to some place in Europe. Reality is that European nations can not nor will they accept millions of refugees every year.Germany has been wonderful in its efforts to allow refugees into their nation. However, in every other European nation any political leader who is ready to accept refugees confronts the reality the average citizen will become furious and turn to right wing political parties which gain voters by hating refugees.

So, what can be done?

1. Obviously, ending the war in Syria will be a powerful incentive for reducing refugees to voyage.

2. There is need for vast European economic investment in Africa to create vibrant economies. Get people working and they will not undertake dangerous voyages for jobs.

3. There is need to work with Vladimir Putin and Iran in order to end violence in the Middle East. That is reality!

Israel Lives By The Sword

Benny Grantz, and Israel official uttered some words of advice to the world, “we will always live by our sword.” No question, this is the operating mode of the current Israel government. Always show them Palestinians and the world that if you mess with an Israeli, you are fooling around with some person who is ready to blast away. Why Israel sense of toughness? If a people for over 2,000 years have resided among Gentiles in a position of powerlessness, there is an intense need to make certain those Gentiles and those Muslims know the old days are gone, and in the new days, we Jews don’t take anything from anybody!

This attitude meets emotional needs for Jews, but as an operating political or diplomatic approach, it fits the attitude of Vladimir Putin,not that of a peacemaker. The time has now come when Jews no longer have to prove they are the toughest guys on the block. How about a little bit of Martin Luther King?

Dealing With “Criminals”

There is no question that we Americans are Number One in the world in–criminals. Or, at least, in people who have spent some time in a jail. President Obama has indicated a desire to make illegal allowing prospective employers to inquire if someone has a criminal record. Of course, since Wall Street folk daily commit crimes against ordinary people, they never have to bother with responding a “no” to that question. When was

There are some other steps that would help people who are in prison:

1. Bring back educational programs to prisons.Allow individuals to get their high school equivalency as well as college credits.

2. Institute a modern vocational training program in prison. Let them spend time LEARNING a trade.

3. Make certain each prisoner learns about psychology of who they are.

4. Institute physical training to improve their bodies as well as minds.

A Russian Plane Fell To The Ground

A Russian plane took off from an airport in Egypt and within twenty minutes reported problems and soon disintegrated and plunged to the ground and soon 222 people were dead. We offer several possible explanations for this event.

1. Putin planned the tragedy so he could blame someone or some group for economic problems inside Russia.

2. The Israel secret service, the Mossad,organized this event –if anything bad occurs in the world, just blame the Jews! Works for centuries.

3. Egyptian dictator General Sisi has an economic mess. Shift focus from his inept rule to some tragedy and at least no one is blaming this upon him.

4. An ISIS suicide bomber had the bombs on his underwear.

5. According to Ben Carson: “I really don’t know too much about Egypt. Is that the place with pyramids? And,this ISIS stuff, is this company seeking someone to push their products?”

6. Given the state of the Russian economy,there is nothing strange about anything built in Russia to disintegrate.

Anyway, innocent people are dead.

Democracy In Egypt

As you may recall, the nation of Egypt is an ally of the United States of America in its quest to end terrorism in the Middle East. The country of Egypt is ruled, yes, that is the word, ruled, by a man named General Sisi. The general was a friend of the previous ruler of Egypt, General Mubarak who was a friend of the prior ruler of Egypt, General Sadat, who was a friend of the prior ruler of Egypt, General Nasser, who was a friend of the prior ruler of Egypt who was General Naguib.

Ahmed Naji is an editor of a literary magazine in Egypt and he is some sort of terrorist. Well, actually, he published some pictures and words about some sort of sexual issues in life. Naturally, the government of General Sisi does not believe such words or pictures is anything other than an act to ruin the morals of Egyptians. So, off to jail go those who offend the sensibilities of General Sisi.

Just another example of democracy in the fight against terrorism.
