Democracy Defeated In Turkey

Ordinarily, an Army coup to overthrow a democratically elected government would result in this blog supporting the success of government to defeat this attack. However, the Army coup in Turkey was the last possible hope to save democracy in Turkey from the ever increasing dictatorial government of Recep Erdogan. President Erdogan has closed down opposition newspapers, he has placed in prison more journalists than any other government in the world, and he has employed hysteria to gain complete control over the government.

He blames an American based Muslim cleric, Fetalluah Gulen for fomenting the coup. Once Erdogan and Gulen were allies, but when it comes to power, Recep Erdogan has no allies. Several hundred people are dead, about 3,000 soldiers under arrest. But, democracy is hanging by a thread in Turkey. Erdogan will use the coup to become even more dictatorial!

Newt Gingrich, American Historian

Believe it or not, but when Newt Gingrich was a college professor, he actually wrote a history of the United States of America. I assume this meant, he had some knowledge of the Constitutional Convention which created the American government. You know,Newt, that thing called, the Bill of Rights. So,listen to this alleged expert on American history:

“Western civilization is at war. We should frankly test every person who is of Muslim background and they believe in sharia, they should be deported.”

Newt, is NOT kidding. He simply is stating what many fellow Republicans desire-the suspension of the Constitution. Of course, Republicans non-stop insist they want to respect our FOUNDING FATHERS!

Perhaps, this Newt outbreak of nonsense was simply anger for not becoming Donald’s selection to be the Vice Presidential candidate.

We Finally Got Him!

During the 18th and 19th centuries, the young American nation was known to Europeans as the leader in the fight to end capital punishment, and to create prisons where the goal was rehabilitation of criminals. That was then, today is now. Yesterday, the state of Georgia injected John Wayne Conner, aged sixty, with  barbiturate, and he soon was dead. The crime which resulted in his death happened in 1982 when John and his buddy, JT White were drinking and smoking marijuana. He was the sixth person this year in Georgia to be executed.

Gee, thirty years have passed since the crime. Did Mr. Conner display new behaviors? Did he demonstrate that the man who killed a friend, was now a different person? For God’s sake the ‘murder’ was an explosion of anger against a FRIEND!

They Are Coming For US!

I so enjoy so-called experts on CNN who emphasize that Americans must become realists and accept the reality that ISIS and other terrorist groups are coming after US. Of  course the US are Christians and Jews residing in America who now are the target of hating Muslim terrorists. Repeating a lie does not make it true despite the number of times you shout it. Here is  REALITY;:

1. Fewer than 100 Americans have been killed by Muslim terror groups.

2. Each day in Iraq over a hundred MUSLIMS are murdered by ISIS or al-Qaeda.

3. Nearly one million Syrian Muslims have been killed due to terror by their government or from terrorists.

4. Muslims are getting killed in Libya.

5. Each time ISIS has seized territory they murder Muslims.

6. In Afghanistan Muslims are killing Muslims.

7. In Pakistan, Muslims are killing Muslims.

The list goes on and on. Relatively few non-Muslims have been killed due to terrorist action.

The main people that ISIS is coming after are–MUSLIMS!!

 

France Under Siege–Why?

Last night in Nice, France a mad man went on a rampage and drove a truck through thousands of people celebrating Bastille Day. Yes, he was a Muslim. Actually, it appears he was of Tunisian heritage. The question arises as to why are so many attacks by ISIS conducted by those who have lived and worked in France? Answers to that  question in no way justify the actions of this deranged young man. Reality: Over 95% of Muslims born in the United States are assimilated and many earn excellent salaries. They are American Muslims.

However, in France, the vast majority of Muslims do NOT consider themselves to be French. Of course, many do, but there is a large number of Muslims who feel isolated from French culture and values. They never in school became proud of their French culture, nor do they share many French values. A high percent of young Muslims are unemployed or work at low pay occupations. Unlike, most American Muslims, they do not emphasize their French Muslim category.

A high percent live in slums without any prospect for a middle class life. France is a class based society in which those of the middle and upper classes ensure their children wind up with good jobs and a good life. The French people must:

1. Accept multiculturalism which allows groups to retain part of their culture while entering the national culture.

2. It must cease silly laws such as how a Muslim female can or cannot dress. In America, Jews can wear their yarmulke and still retain a job. Why can’t Muslim women wear the chador or hijab? How you dress does not alter your sense of nationalism unless society makes one feel that way.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I sleep peacefully these nights knowing Republicans protect my toilet rights.

Since when does shit represent a right?

Every political leader over the past week has praised cops-now,how about giving them a raise?

The UK is torn to pieces by Brexit, soon Scotland will Brexit.

For some Sanders supporters, Donald Trump is the best ally in their fight for income equality in America?

On TV, cops aim for legs and arms, how come, not in real  life?

America will be Great Again, when Americans earn a living wage.

I think these days one can run on the Republican ticket if he weighs in at least 240 pounds.

Another Hairy Story

The most dramatic change in my 86 years of life has been the incredible interest in what people wear on the top of their head. I was raised as a Conservative Jew in a world in which men had a yarmulke and many women covered their head. Males and females in the synagogue had something on their head. Of course, in those days, professional women would not be caught in public without a beautiful hat. But, these days in countries like France hardly a day goes by without some incident about what woman placed on her head.

Asma Bougnaoui is a French design engineer and she committed the unpardonable sin of  coming to work with a headscarf. Her boss insisted this garment on her head “embarrassed”fellow workers. They insisted that if she wanted a  job, no headscarf at any time. She is appealing this decision.

Islamic State Is Shrinking

Donald Trump is going to carpet bomb the hell out of ISIS, and get rid of any and all terrorists so once again, America can stand tall. Well, examine the record:

1. ISIS has already lost control of 40% of land it once held.

2. Town after town in Iraq has fallen to the Iraq government, and Fallujah no longer has any ISIS terrorists.

3. During the ISIS flight from Fallujah,an estimated 2,000 of their fighters was killed by air attacks. Oh,Donald, American pilots dropped bombs. OH,there was no need to ‘carpet bomb’ because ISIS fighters were out in the open.

4. ISIS slowly, but surely, is being forced from their positions in Syria. Everything  Donald promises to do, IS already being done!

5. The central issue which Trump does not even understand is -what is the strategy once ISIS no longer controls areas in the Middle East? How will ISIS then function? What will be the strategy once ISIS lacks a geographic area under its control?

Donald, do you even know what has happened to ISIS in the Middle East?

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Surprise! Donald is running on a ticket promising LAW AND ORDER!

These past few nights have witnessed one cliche after another cliche about the issue of cops shooting black males.

I would appreciate, although it will never happen,hearing the specific Laws that Donald wants and what does he mean by –ORDER?

Once I become dictator, my first edict will ban any discussions of emails –from whomever to whoever!

I suspect most Americans are more bored than angry.

Gee, I wish we had a presidential candidate who represented the high qualifications of President Millard Fillmore. He wanted to ban immigration of Catholics! He never said a word about Muslim immigrants.

There are moments I wish Donald and Hillary would just disappear and I had the opportunity to vote for Elizabeth Warren.

So, Where Is Crime In America?

CNN always has someone on its panel who represents the “police” version of what is transpiring in our nation. This individual invariably notes that crime is rampant in black and Hispanic areas so it is only natural that most halted by police are black or Hispanic. They argue it is not the fault of police for  halting blacks, it is a normal outcome from the fact that if police have to enter black crime areas, it means they will have to confront more blacks and Hispanics during the course of a day.

This rationale comes across as logical, and provides reasons for cops to halt those with dark skins or those who speak Spanish. HOWEVER, where exactly are the centers of crime in America?

1. MILLIONS AND MILLIONS of people lost their homes, their life savings due to criminal behavior of Wall Street bankers and salesmen.

2. Untold thousands of people lost thousands and thousands of dollars because lying college salesmen got them to enroll  in fly-by-night “colleges”which were really sham outfits ripping off people who did not know much about  colleges. Talk about places with high crime rates!

3. Check out those friendly stores that offer to cash checks for those without savings accounts, or loan someone in need of a few hundred dollars who now pays back a few thousand to loan sharks. Has ANY COP entered those centers of nonstop crime??

4. Each year a few thousand people are subject to the Nigerian promise of millions for a few thousand from you. Has any cop investigated these crimes?

A visit to Wall street will enable any cop in this land to encounter criminals  who do not steal a few hundred dollars, but millions and millions and no COP ever halts these crimes!
