Wither Egypt?

The media discusses problems in Iraq or Syria or the ever present Iran, but few are interested in Egypt. Since the dawn of the Arab Spring there has been great hope that Egypt could step up to the plate and become a leader of secular Muslims who will reduce the power of Islamic terrorism. General Sisi replaced General Mubarak who had for the moment been replaced by Mr. Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood, and of course Mubarak had replaced General Sadat who had replaced General Nasser. Lost in this endless shuffle of strong men has been the arrival of a single non-strong man who could focus upon developing an economy and providing jobs for the population.

General Sisi has handled the presence of the Muslim Brotherhood by arresting thousands and placing thousands on trial in order to get the court to rule they should all be executed, including the inept former President Morsi. The end result has been growing development of terrorism which can draw upon the presence of millions of unemployed men who just want to do something today. Yesterday, the newly arrived ISIS folks shot a missile that blew up a navy vessel. Neither ISIS nor the Muslim Brotherhood will be defeated by guns. How about trying some jobs?

Plot To Take Over Texas!

During the past month thousands of Texans have gathered arms and ammunition in order to stand ready to protect their state against a Federal government take over of the loyal, God-fearing and Gun-loving folk of Texas. An Army military exercise, Jade Helm 15 has aroused the suspicions of the Texas government. The Governor and thousands of Texans know this is no “military exercise.” It is simply a cover for another Obama plot to destroy all we hold dear in our beloved land. Examine the facts and judge for yourself.

1. Walmart stores closed as part of the plan to store weapons for the US Army.

2. The Army was placing barbed wire to hold those arrested when Obamatakeover occurred.

3. Why was this exercise being conducted in a Red State? How come,not in a Blue state?

4. Many are wondering if this exercise was coordinated by ISIS. At this moment, ISIS forces are on the attack. Coincidence??

5. Is there a connection between the decision of former Governor Rick Perry to seek the Republican nomination and this so-callled military exercise? Was the special prison being built designed to hold Rick Perry?

If America elects a Muslim from Africa, is there any wonder that loyal Americans are frightened of the government??

Guns Blast Away And So Does Death

It is Friday morning in America and our people are upset and angry and furious at Muslim “terrorists.” A young Muslim man who had gone to college and received professional training drove to recruiting stations near Chattanooga,Tennessee, and began to blast away at members of the armed forces. When the shooting finally halted, four US Marines were dead as well as the gunman, 24 year old Muhammad YOUssef Abdulazeez. There was no prior evidence that would lead anyone to conclude this young man had become a firm believer in murder of infidels and non-Muslims. At this point in time, he remains a mystery.

But,there is no mystery to the fact that he, as well as anyone, was able to obtain rapid firing weapons since the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution gave him the right to stand up for principles and kill those he deemed evil. Ironically, this event came just as a jury in Denver found the man who murdered people in a movie theater- guilty. The simple fact is that as long as getting a gun is as complex as buying a coffee, there will be murders and mass killings. There are countless crazy people and they must be prevented from getting rapid firing weapons.

Lindsay Graham Is Confused

Lindsay Graham is a close friend of John McCain and a leader in the US Senate for being tough. By, “tough,” he means never giving into any bad people unless the bad people are bad people that we term to be good people. In 2013, Secretary of State John Kerry reached an interim agreement with the Iranian government concerning nuclear development. Naturally, since the agreement had been with bad people, Lindsay and John rushed to condemn Kerry for selling out to evil.

Yesterday, Lindsay offered a rather bizarre explanation as to why he opposes the current agreement with Iran. He now believes the 2013 agreement, is one that “worked better than I,myself, thought so hats off to John Kerry.” In other words,the 2015 agreement that John Kerry helped to negotiate is bad so let us return to square one when Kerry was the good guy. I leave to others an explanation as to how Senator Lindsay Graham thinks.

Iran Deal Or No Deal

One of America’s leading authorities on foreign policy has weighed in on the recent deal with Iran,and given his past ability to grasp the subtle aspects of conducting negotiations with other nations, it is time for President Obama to reflect on what he claims to have accomplished. Former Governor Rick Perry’s comments should make Obama pause and reflect for a moment. The man who sort of got confused as to which departments are in the Cabinet is dead sure that Obama made a terrible mistake. “What I saw out of the President today, and this is of great consternation to me, I saw a very naive man who does not know how the world works, who cannot put the dots together.”

President Obama was working with five other important nations who, I assume, have some grasp as to how the world works. Frankly, I doubt if Perry could even locate Iran on the map. His comment is that of just about every man or woman seeking the Republican nomination. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if one of them could actually offer an ALTERNATIVE PLAN! Oops, I forgot, Donald Trump wants to lead soldiers into battle.

Bibi Says NO, NO, NO!

It is quite apparent that Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is the chief foreign policy advisor for Republicans. After all, he “speaks for Israel.” Of course, he has never captured more than 30% of the Israel vote. He made clear the agreement with Iran was a “disaster” that would change the world and lead to permanent war. An assumption of the current Israel government is that a permanent state of war is the best path to peace. UK Foreign Minister Philip Hammond expressed the frustration of many: “The question you ask yourself is what kind of a deal would have been welcomed in Tel Aviv. The answer of course is that Israel does not want any deal with Iran.”

The basic question to pose Netanyahu is what exactly is his alternative. Ordinarily, he cries out for war against Iran. So,what would occur if US planes bombed nuclear sites in Iran?

1.Hezbollah would send its 30,000 missiles towards Israel.

2. Assume that 95% are shot down. That leaves about 5,000 missiles hitting Israel.

THAT IS THE ALTERNATIVE THAT BIBI NEVER MENTIONS!

Pluto Gets A Visitor

I am 85 years old this year so there is only a slim possibility that I will be around when in 2030 a new giant telescope that is five times the size of the Hubble telescope is swung into action. However, I was alive today to see pictures from Pluto. Gee, Pluto has mountains, gee, Pluto has a smooth surface. Sorry,there is absolutely no sign of any form of life on this planet. Pluto is at the end of our galaxy and soon will be heading past our minor point in the universe on its way toward the stars.

I believe we Americans made a horrible mistake in giving up further exploration of the Moon. After the fifteen or sixteen or God knows how many Republican candidates leave the stage, the real human drama will continue as we take the first hesitant steps on the voyage that must be taken-venturing into the unknown. I hate to inform Republicans but if there really is a God, that entity is somewhere in the stars.

Heck,all this science stuff gives Republicans a headache.

Scott Steps Up To Plate

Another week, another Republican candidate for president. Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin has formed a super pac, and he has let Americans know where he stands.

1.He is a Christian. Goes to church.

2. Of course, some of his best friends are Jews, not that he would ever marry one.

3. He takes on labor unions. He compares his stand against the Teacher Union with the stand he will take against ISIS. Just about the same threat to America from either of these groups.

4. He stands firmly in favor of the $7.25 cents an hour for workers. He worked while going to college, so why not students today? Of course, never finished college, but so what? After all, he knows more than any college professor. Just have one of them challenge him to a duel no how to organize a super pac!

5. Scott talked with our Founding Fathers and they informed him the idea of a photo ID was on the tip of their tongues when writing the Constitution.

6. Scott never allowed a single dollar to be given Planned Parenthood because he believes in the right of women not to have rights concerning their own body.

Some believe in paying workers decent salaries so they will purchase goods and buy houses, Scott is convinced that our beloved wealthy folks are just dying to pay decent wages.

The Art Of Political Selling

There is one pattern that has existed throughout the Obama administration, and that is his inept political ability to sell a good idea. Obama always behaves like a college professor who lectures and then assumes his “students” understand what was presented. Compared to Theodore or Franklin Roosevelt or John Kennedy or Abe Lincoln, Obama has completely failed to SELL his ideas. Sorry Barack, but a great president is a great salesperson.

1. Lincoln was a master of presenting complex ideas along with a joke or a demand that Americans display their greatness as people.

2. John Kennedy on day one of his presidency told the American people “what can you do for America?”

3. In 1940, England faced Nazi Germany alone and had run out of guns and ammunition. Most Americans did not want to go to war. So, in one of his fireside chats with Americans, Franklin Roosevelt used this metaphor: “if your neighbor’s house catches fire, and he comes to you asking to borrow a fire hose, surely, you would give him one. We are going to lend England destroyers and rifles and other equipment.” And, so England got military supplies that enabled it to continue fighting Germany. I have never heard a single metaphor from Obama that enables people to grasp an issue.

4. One night after America was at war, Franklin Roosevelt asked the American people to listen to him as he reviewed where American soldiers were fighting. By late evening, one out of two Americans had listened and followed his analysis of where fighting was going on. How many Americans today even know where Syria or Iraq are? Obama has never discussed these areas of fighting with Americans following with a map.

5. To this day I am shocked that we Americans never received an explanation about Obamacare from the government.

If Obama wants to sell this accord with Iran, he must become a president who talks WITH AMERICANS!

Oh The Glory Of God!

These days the easiest way to explain away any act of murder is simply to say: “This is for the glory of God!” ISIS just blew up a parked car in front of the Italian consulate in Cairo for the glory of God. ISIS blows up statues that have been around for a few thousand years for the glory of God. People get their heads chopped off for the glory of God. Kill a few kids today who happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and simply note this was for the glory of God.

I guess in the future when someone desires to rob a bank, all they have to shout at the teller, “this is for the glory of God, not for me.” I assume this means God has run out of cash and needs it right now. I wonder if God goes around blowing up planets for the glory of God??
