Losing the Allies

    The policy of retrenchment that the Obama Administration has embarked on is bearing fruit.  The Whitehouse made the decision to draw our outspoken enemies closer and thus defuse their argument that their own isolation provides the impetus for perpetual bellicosity.  Likewise, the United State’s has been lacking in a necessary cordiality towards our historic allies (Britain, Israel, Turkey, etc.).  The inevitable result of this policy | Read More »

    So you don’t like the way Israeli commandos defend themselves?

    It started with non-lethal paint balls filled with pepper-spray, which was responded to by pipes and knives. It ended with gunfire. Guess who won? After several days of produced uproar which included Hillary Clinton as US Secretary of State “officially” (I bet Obama claims he “wasn’t aware”) condemning Israel, an anonymous IDF Navy Commander said “Next time we’ll use more force“; “We boarded the ship | Read More »

    The United States Of America Officially Condemns Israel.

    Video of United States Secretary Of State Hillary Clinton on CNN…….. http://www.thefoxnation.com/gaza-flotilla-raid/2010/06/01/hillary-condemns-israeli-raid-terror-linked-flotilla That’s about the size of it. Obama, Rahm, Hillary, Harold Koh, Samantha Power and the rest…….. Elections have consequences. === === === === === === I figure there’s just maybe a week (two at most) before a few things happen: 1.  At the next ‘totally and completely unprovoked incident’, The United States will | Read More »

    Israeli Response Justified on All Accounts

    Recent accounts attacking Israel for action taken toward “humanitarian activists,” as they like to call them, have been all but factual.  Israel has been victimized by anti-Semitic activists sent to “break” the barrier for the passage of weapons (likely originating from Iran) to the Gaza strip.  With outside help, these terrorist groups, including Hamas and Hezbollah, have been able to launch attacks on innocent Israeli | Read More »

    The Face of Sanctions

    News came Monday that the Israeli navy had boarded a flotilla of ships seeking to run Israel’s blockade of Gaza, setting off an incident that ended with the Israelis shooting a number of people on board the ship. The immediate controversy is over what happened on board: the Israelis say they were attacked upon boarding by assailants wielding knives and clubs. Who you believe depends | Read More »

    Alex Jones and his Israel-bashing weekend

    Alex Jones is based in Austin, around where I live. I sometimes catch kis KLBJ radio show and check out his website, and he’s exactly right on many things. The anti-Semitism, however, is quite disturbing. This has been a very eventful week in the Middle East. The basic fact is that Jews have lived in Israel longer than anyone around today, and that Jews have | Read More »

    Memorial Day 2010

    …and not an Obama in sight. Vacationing in fact. To my way of thinking as a veteran, as an American and as a patriot, perhaps it’s best he didn’t show. He would have somehow sullied our memories of the countless selfless souls who have gone before. I think that somewhere the spirits of these warriors would protest at someone who thought so little of the | Read More »

    White Man Speak with Forked Tongue

    When I was a kid, the common jargon as we played cowboy and Indians was that “white man speak with forked tongue.” It wasn’t just kids play or drama on the silver screen, it was also a matter of history. What I learned as a child, from the native-American’s perspective anyway, was that the words of Caucasians cannot to be trusted. It seems then that | Read More »

    Israel intercepts Gaza blockade runners: 14 dead.

    The Israelis are very, very serious about maintaining said blockade: At least 14 people were killed and 50 were injured early Monday as the Israeli Navy took over the ships taking part in the aid sail to Gaza, Arab and Turkish media reported. The IDF reported that four soldiers were injured during the takeover from live ammunition and knife stabbing. One of the troops was | Read More »

    Rand Paul Has Republican Jews Nervous?

    It was only a matter of time until Rand Paul’s totally undramatic and unsurprising CRA-’64 “comments” coalesced with memories of Ron Paul’s non-support for Israel-no-matter-what-when-or-why, and produced this. When the anti-black racism smear doesn’t quite sink in, there’s always one, more powerful card to play. Funny how these two “constituencies”–blacks and Jews–are the two that Republicans so tenuously caress and go out of their way | Read More »

    PAMELA GORMAN COMES OUT STRONG IN SUPPORT OF ISRAEL

    “As evangelical Christian, my concern for how our nation provides for Israel’s protection also reflects my firmly held belief in the Holy Scriptures where Israel is concerned. As such, my positions is both a strategic and personal.”

    The Message Is… There Is No Message.

    There is no coherent message coming from the administration. It’s like the legend of the Tower of Babel, where man’s arrogance drove him to build a tower to heaven (sort of like health care?). God’s answer was to change everyone’s languages so they could no longer cooperate. The Tower failed and the people scattered. If we compiled a list of the top 100 things an | Read More »

    Rand Paul and Israel

    Any conservative friend of Israel knows that Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) may not have personal antipathy toward Israel, but he does hold isolationist foreign policy views, and as a result, is one of the few Republicans to oppose aid to Israel or any other pro-Israel resolutions.  Given his natural closeness to his son, and the significant support his political organization lent and continues to lend | Read More »
