The Poles Are Coming

Thee is some good news from Europe and some bad news for any member of ISIS or any other of those so-called terrorist groups in the Middle East. The Polish government has now made clear that Polish soldiers will soon be battling in the Middle East and when a Polack grabs  a gun, just watch out if you are a terrorist. As someone who is half-Polish, let me inform any Muslim who tries to take out we Poles, that you are signing your death warrant!

We Poles worked in coal mines, we worked in steel plants, we took any dirty, filthy job in order to put food on the table. Check out any famous American gang and you will discover some Polish names. And, you ISIS jerks, just remember that we Poles fight to win, and the only rule we follow is there are no rules– just victory!  You  ISIS jerks have been warned!

Ben Carson On Any Issue

Ben Carson was asked how he, if president, faced a Russian invasion of Estonia.

“First, let me make one thing clear. I am the only one on this stage who has been confronted with life-death situations. I had to respond to calls at 2:00 a.m. and get together a team to solve life and death situations. So, a Russian invasion of this Estonia poses no problem for me. Just to get things clear, this Estonia is in the Middle East? NO. OK, we are going to send in American troops, we are going to arm these Estonians-that is what they are called, I assume,- and we are going to  give them missiles and big bombs to take care of Russian invaders. Just as I stitched up people after an operation, I am prepared to stitch up any problem that arises.

OH, and have no doubt that our Savior Jesus Christ will be right there helping me win this war.”

Iranians Welcomed By Pope

President Hassan Rouhani of Iran is now in Italy and among the folks he will be talking with is Pope Francis. I realize the idea of a Catholic Pope talking to an evil MUSLIM man infuriates good Catholics like Ted Cruz or Marco Rubio because their concept of Catholicism is to hate and hate. Rouhani is on a business trip to negotiate billion dollar deals with European business corporations. Yes, Iran will soon have returned about $50 billion that has been frozen for decades. NO,the money will not go to terrorists, but to improve life in Iran for Iranians!

I always assumed the Donald Trump had this great business plan, but for some reason he is not interested in $50 billion. Donald boasts that he is a very rich  man, actually, he has about $5 billion which places him way down on the list of our wealthy folks. He Donald, how about a meeting with  Rouhani?

Danes Don’t Act Like Danes

The story of the Holocaust is replete with tales of horror, it was a time when people turned their backs on neighbors because they were Jewish. In thousands of examples, the average person gazed away when innocent people were loaded onto trains and sent to their deaths. But within this horror stood the example of the noble people of Denmark who gathered together in order to save the Jews of Denmark.

Fast forward seventy years until 2016. Denmark is the destination of thousands of Muslims fleeing death in the Middle East. A new law in Denmark requires each of these refugees to turn over to the Danish government any wealth they possess over the sum of $1100. This money will be used to care for refugees.

Oh, in fairness, the Danish government will allow refugees to keep anything that has sentimental value.

Putin Makes A Point

During the administration of George H.W. Bush and George Bush the goal of US European foreign policy was to push NATO eastward to ensure that anti-Russian nations were on the  Russian border.  As Putin put it: “twenty-five years ago,the Berlin wall fell, but invisible walls moved to eastern Europe. NATO and the United States wanted to complete victory over the Soviet Union. This had led to mutual misunderstandings and assignments of guilt. We’e done everything wrong.

The key word is “we’ve’ which indicates that Putin is finally admitting a role in creating tensions in eastern Europe. At one of the Republican debates Carly Fiorina boasted that if she were president she would place missiles on the border of Russia. Other Republicans wanted to shoot down Russian planes in Syria. Russia had a point, threatening to destroy Russia carries consequences. And, Trump and the boys and girls are dangerous to the cause of peace in eastern Europe.
 

Trump Hailed By Tyrants!

There is no question when it comes to gaining the respect of world leaders, none can compare to the Great Donald Trump.  Not a single one of his Republican competitors has gained the respect that Donald has from outstanding leaders of nations. Most probably, if you are an important tyrant, the names of Rubio or Cruz or the mumbling black guy named Ben Carson, have never entered your mind. But, the Donald man is the man of the hour where it counts– among those who oppress people.

Serbian national  leader, Vojislav Seseji who is wanted for war crimes has made clear, “I am urging my brothers who  live in the United States  to strongly support Republican candidate  Donald Trump in the forthcoming  presidential election.” Of course, the real leader among those who oppress, the great Vladimir Putin has openly expressed his view: “Donald Trump is a very colorful candidate and talented.”

There ARE leaders who welcome Donald Trump to their ranks!

Enough Is Enough

The refugees continue to arrive, from Syria, from Afghanistan, from Africa, and cries in Europe grow louder and louder to refuse entry to those who flee from poverty, war, and hatred. One person in Europe has risen to meet the challenge-Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany. She insists that each European Union nation absorb some refugees. In other words, spread the mass of people around and ensure that no single nation is confronted with the need to do it all.

However, voices grow louder and louder, even in Germany. Right wing conservatives echo the words of Donald Trump to build walls blocking entry of those seeking some form of peace and security. The outlook for these refugees does not look bright. It is simply a matter of time before Merkel must bow to the voices of hate. Ironically, Germany, and other western European nations, NEED immigrants since their low birth rates require more young workers to handle increased old age pension payments.

Frankly, the situation does not bode well for those in pain and fear.

Where To Invade?

The American people have been taught from day one of their lives they  live in an exceptional country which is completely different from all other nations of the world. They have been educated to believe no other nation in the world enjoys the freedoms and benefits that any American can obtain from the earliest moment of life in this great land. Michael Moore has a new film entitled, “Where To Invade.” In it he describes where America might invade in order to experience a better life than enjoyed here.

1. The American life experience is now twentieth in the world. Pick either of a dozen nations if you want to live longer.

2. Just about every west European nation offers low cost medical insurance.

3. Believe it or not but countries such as France or Italy make certain workers get paid vacations.

4. Believe it or not but Sweden or Denmark offer free college education.

5. Believe it or not, but Sweden welcomes Syrian immigrants as does Germany.

And, so on and so on.

A Nation Fearing Fear

I was born in the great Depression when one out of four people lacked a job. It was a time before Social Security, before unemployment insurance, before minimum wage laws and before the government provided assistance to children. I was a teen during World War II when in 1942 the Japanese navy had nine aircraft carriers and we had three. I lived when Germany had an army of eight million and they were the first to develop guided missiles and jet planes.

But, for some strange reason we did not have political leaders who nonstop warned us of dire things to occur. According to Republicans, America is “facing the worst threat to its survival in history.” ISIS has about sixty thousand fighters,  no planes, no aircraft carriers, no artillery, no guided missiles and certainly, no atomic bombs.

What has become of the American people who fought a terrible civil war and its leaders were convinced of victory? FACTS: Since 9/11  fewer than 200 Americans have been killed in this nation. Oh, over 300,000 have been killed by guns wielded by native born Christian Americans.

As President Franklin Roosevelt calmly told us: “You have nothing to fear but unreasonable fear.” There is NO threat to America –other than the one posed b God-fearing Christians who want to kill and kill–themselves!

Anti-Semites Reach Out To Jews!

As fear and hysteria sweeps across Europe some rather strange bed fellows are winding up sharing the same beds. The National Front political party headed by Marine Le Pen has emerged with a high vote in regional contests in France.  Historically, the National Front was openly anti-Semitic but Ms. Le Pen has decided to end such talk and reach out to French Jews for an alliance against Muslims. Let me get this clear:

1. An openly anti-Semitic political party wants to become friends with Jews.

2. Many Jews are ready and willing to forge an alliance with people who just yesterday wanted Jews out of France.

3. I get it, let’s find someone who both groups can hate and forge a hate alliance!

I await French Jews reaching out to German groups which are openly anti-Semitic and make Adolf Hitler the new leader of pro-Jewish groups.
