Can You Hear Us Now? – The New Voice of Activist Veterans.

October 20, 2009

There is a largely ignored, little known or understood demographic out there, that the Obama Thugfest would prefer stayed silent or went away.
America’s veterans are only usually consulted or cited when some one, or another politician, needs to use us for election, or to save an incumbency, or to legitimize some political scheme or another.
This by NO measure is meant to denigrate the excellent works of Veteran’s Organizations such as The American Legion, the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the Marine Corps League and the Purple Heart Society. There are others with which I am not as familiar, they are not excluded here on purpose.
These organizations are known for their selfless good works and generosity. Heretofore, they have been pretty much the only voice of millions of veterans, past and present.
This a huge and GROWING demographic…there are some 23.7 MILLION vets out there of all stripes. Women, Men, Hispanics, Blacks, Whites, and Asians. They have one thing in common…a profound love and respect for this country, the Constitution they swore to protect and defend and the service they gave.
Naturally, as with any large grouping there are notable exceptions. The Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s mentor and the guy Obama listened to spewing hatred against the country that nurtured him for 20 years, is one. He was a naval hospital corpsman. And there is John ‘Gunboats’ Kerry, who clandestinely met with our enemy, the North Vietnamese, in the dark of night in Paris, France, and then with instructions from his handlers firmly in mind returned home to stab his erstwhile brothers-in-arms in the back by going in front of Congress and manufacturing atrocities, supposedly committed by US forces, out of whole cloth. There are the inevitable dropouts to alcohol and drugs…but this is nothing new and has  been with us from every war. This is a miniscule number when considered against the whole…most of us come back, live our lives as responsible citizens, husbands, wives, fathers and mothers.
I used to wonder what would happen if this largely passive, immense demographic were pushed to the point of intolerability by an increasingly oppressive and unresponsive government.
I may get a chance to find out.
There is an emerging group of veterans, both active and retired, and police active and retired.
They are called “Oath Keepers” who have pledged to prevent dictatorship in this country by pledging  to ask police and the military to lay down their arms and not obey orders they deem unlawful or unconstitutional, and to stand by their Oaths to the Constitution.
You know…the first American revolution didn’t start over a hell of a lot more than this. Please note: these folks are NOT calling for the overthrow of the government…though this government certainly needs a wake up call. Neither are they calling for armed insurrection. They are simply calling for our elected government and the people who are supposed to represent us in it, who swore to OBEY the Constitution of the United States of America to…
ABIDE BY THE OATHS THEY AFFIRMED BEFORE GOD!!

Conservative Patriots vs. Old Guard Middle Squish Republicrats.

October 19, 2009

Lindsey Graham is feeling bullet proof these days. He’s not up for re-election until 2015.
That means that the newly emerging RINO-in-Chief figures he’s good to go on just about any smarmy agenda he pleases. Speaking of smarmy, he just slithered into the den of John (Did you know that I served in Viet Nam?) Gunboat Kerry. The man who turned against his country on behalf of the NVA (North Vietnamese Army), in testimony before Congress lying through his arrogant teeth. Show us your military records John. Especially your discharge.
Shame on you Lindsey…you are known by the company you keep. Shame on us.
‘Gunboats’ is the front man for the extremely regressive Waxman-Markey TAX-and-destroy bill. Another 1,400+ page phantom bill from the deviant minds of the Marxists in Congress and their controllers in the Carbon Credits  industry sales scam…it’s useless to go into the ‘accommodations’ promised to RINOs of Lindsey’s ilk. They are invariably window dressing and sucker bait.
Needless to say these promises would vaporize  like an Obama campaign promise as soon as any bill was passed.
Graham’s really stuck-on-stupid statement at a recent town hall  meeting, referring to the patriot movement and teabaggers as ANGRY WHITE GUYS, is going to cost him. We’ve always known he was linguine-spined and vacillation prone and just as wrong headed as John McCain, but so far the Republican label has shielded him….NO MAS. We’re not going to forget this time Lindsey…not by a long shot.
There is a serious disconnect between the conservative patriot movement and the leadership of the Republican party…basically it’s like this…WE back winners…THEY lose elections. I don’t mean that to sound arrogant though it may. It was the back room deal makers that brought us that charismatic crowd pleaser Bob Dole who was a classic beltway deal maker. War hero though he was, he was not presidential material. George Bush the younger was another insider selection and despite severe reservations we supported him. His performance after 9/11 and the war allayed some of those fears along with the Bush tax cuts. But his subsequent spending and fiscal failures, along with his apparent unwillingness or inability to reign in a Republican House and Senate spending money like Democrats on steroids, cost us the House and Senate and ultimately the Presidency.
John McCain was another ‘insider pick’ whose loss would have been worse than Dole’s had he not picked up SARAH PALIN along the way. She was the only bright light in an otherwise lifeless campaign.
There are fractious elements all over the country among the conservative movement who are bucking the ‘conventional’ wisdom of the party insiders, who have a positively fiendish ability to pick out and put forth weak, accommodating RINO candidates.
You’ll notice that many of these people don’t show up, nor are they invited to conservative events, with the exception of some of the ‘Good Guys’ like MIKE PENCE.
I see this as a war for the soul of the party. The status quo movement, also known as the accommodation or “we just have to move to the center”  wing of the party, has brought us to Barack Hussein Obama and his wildly out-of-control administration and Congress.
It’s time for the torch to be passed to those who can lead this country out of the darkness.
In the words of the great Ronald Reagan,  “…raising a banner of no pale pastels, but bold colors which makes it unmistakably clear where we stand on all of the issues troubling the people”.

FOREIGN POLICY IS FOREIGN TO OBAMA—SO IS GOVERNANCE.

October 18, 2009

President Barack Obama trots around like he doesn’t have a care in the world. He is the quintessential Liberal, blowing through people’s lives like a Federal Emergency Grant, leaving nothing but confusion and chaos behind with nothing to show for it, most especially accountable results. It’s Ali Baba and the Legion of Thieves…and every bit as mythical.                                                                                                                                                    It’s the recovery that ISN’T and jobs that AIN’T…and the mantra of lies coupled to the fantasy that IS and the healthcare bill that WON’T. In the words of former President Wm Jefferson Clinton, (Billy Jeff to his many friends and admirers), “It depends on what the meaning of is, is”. So we have the President who CAN’T, coupled to the health care bill that ISN’T, along with a recovery that AIN’T.

Which brings us to the benighted one’s foreign policy that ISN’T either.
From little Honduras, that great international threat to the south of us, to his insulting of one of our oldest allies in Europe and the unforgivably gauche treatment of a reigning Monarch and her Prime Minister. His GROVELING performance before a Saudi King, denigrating the office he does not deserve and the country he is not man enough to lead. His blatant courtship of a philosophy that keeps millions of people in servitude, poverty and ignorance and who is an enemy that has sworn to destroy what Obama has sworn to protect and isn’t. His faithlessness extends far beyond his general ineptitude. That by itself would be understandable and to a degree forgivable. After all, once the glitz and glitter of the historic moment was over and the anesthesia of the hysteria-inducing press had worn off, most people knew that what we had been telling them since Barry had been put forth by his handlers was true.
He is a man of no experience, who could point to no qualification or accomplishment for this most important and difficult job in the world. His entire tenure in government, short as it was, had been spent in avoiding having any sort of record that could be pointed to…sort of like his life.

What is unforgivable is his placing of this country, its citizens, and its military forces, in extreme peril. This world we live on is teetering on the edge and I’m not referring to the ‘Green Phantom’ of Global Warming or Climate Change or what ever the term du jour is for the Marxists who hide behind the various environmental movements.
The situation in the Middle East is balancing on a hairpin….Afghanistan is suffering from Obamination which can be diagnosed as Yellow Fever. The Obama Senate has stolen 2.6 BILLION dollars from our troops in harms way…This is ‘the’ OBAMA Senate.
His Irrelevance has stabbed our Eastern European allies in the back, allies we had pledged to protect, thereby soiling the honor of this country though HE has none. His imprimatur on the world stage of policy is one of self aggrandizement and apology for fancied affronts by this nation which have provided more good in this world than all modern nations combined.
Small wonder that the citizens of this country have turned away from him in ever growing numbers.
Stay strong…carry the message of freedom to your friends and neighbors…remind them that we are Americans and what that means…to ourselves, to our children, and to the world.

SAN FRANCISCO TREAT…OBAMA SANDBAGGED BY TEABAGS…..REALITY STRIKES A POSE.

October 17, 2009

Speaking of posers…His Magnificence Obama the First graced the belly of the Liberal Beast with his presence, while he extracted THIRTY THOUSAND DOLLARS apiece from gratefully groveling sycophants to hear his latest rehash of the same thing he has been saying since, oh…say December or January, all the while looking cross eyed down his nose at the Moon eyed adulators. He’s so wonderful….he didn’t have to look up once!

Meanwhile, thousands of people, real people, gathered outside to let the Glorious Leader know just how much they detest what he stands for and what he’s doing. Surprisingly enough, some of them were erstwhile supporters of El Presidente, whose main beef seemed to be that he had just not been Marxist enough in his so far unsuccessful attempt at destroying our civil society. They were so intent on dissing their idol that most of them forgot to argue with the thousands of patriots present. Either that or SEIU just hadn’t  time to put enough union thug rent-a-mobs together….or maybe it’s just that it was an OT gig and their ACORN contract didn’t allow for it.

I’m from the San Francisco Bay Area and nothing is more illustrative of the groundswell and momentum of the Patriot movement in this country than these people coming out on their their own time and with their own money to protest at what this incredibly inept lightweight has been doing. By way of contrast, even as recently as a year ago you’d never see this sort of spontaneous eruption in San Francisco, unless it were the Gays all up in a hissy about something or another, or maybe the Anarchists trying to burn down the financial  district (which is 100% concrete) . Good goin’ guys…

Our increasingly detested ‘houses of governance’ (and in this instance that may be an oxy-moron), SNEAK around in the dead of night to craft legislation only a severely bi-polar person off his meds might come up with. Unelected and unaccountable Marxist Obamatons steal our American birthright by shredding our Bill of Rights and the Constitution of the United States of America…probably the singular most important document in recorded history. They wonder why we are literally up in arms?

You have a total non-entity such as Anita Dunn standing at a podium, preaching the glories of MAO to an audience of high school seniors? Mao, who was directly responsible for the deaths of what is estimated to be 70 MILLION of his own people? This Anita Dunn, who would rob you of the right to speak as you wish, hear what you wish, write what you please. This is OUR government? She’s wretched…but she’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Glenn Beck is a genuine passionate patriot. His research  has been impeccable. Mark Levin is one of the greatest constitutional scholars of our time. Rush Limbaugh, who started the whole movement and had the courage to stick with it even though ‘they’ said it couldn’t be done, has the largest audience in history and every time they attack him his audience grows. Sean Hannity and all the others who spend countless hours of research bringing us the TRUTH to combat the serial lies of the left. Likewise Fox News. Every time they get attacked by the left, the ratings go up. It’s almost laughable if it weren’t so serious.

That’s why they are after us…they have to silence us or face the  greatest defeat any incumbent party or Congress has ever faced. They have completely misread and abused the electorate of this country time after time. I think it’s too late for them. The genie is out of the bottle. He can’t be stuffed back in there.

What Obama faced in Babylon by the Bay is just a bare microcosm of what is actively brewing in this nation from sea to shining sea. Obama and his DemMarxists (because at this point I can’t even really separate the two) are desperate, they can see what’s coming. We have to stay vigilant and we have to stay united. They have to be stopped…We can stop them. We are the American people.
Hey, Obama Hussein…
Your San Francisco treat is on the way…

SMOKE AND MIRRORS—HEALTHCARE—DEMOCRATS EPHEMERAL CHIMERA.

October 16, 2009

Senator John McCain stood on the Senate floor and spoke for Americans today…for once no accommodation and no offers to reach across the aisle. Could it be that John has finally gotten the message that should have started before he authored that first great assault on our freedoms since Roosevelt and the ‘New Deal‘? The McCain Feingold attack on the First Amendment? That McCain put his name to it was reason enough to never trust him with the reins of this country….but he would have been far superior to ‘His Travesty Obama The First’ – and if the FREE AMERICANS of this country have anything to say about it – ‘The Last’.
I’ve been re-reading what I consider to be one of the greatest modern treatises on Freedom, the Constitution and Conservatism written in recent history….Mark Levin’s “LIBERTY and TYRANNY”.
If you have it, get it out and re-read it. If you don’t have it, borrow it, buy it, or check it out from your library. You’ll be glad you did.
And NO, I’m not being paid for the endorsement.
This is the blueprint for how to win back our country from the vicious philosophy of communism, as openly espoused by those who ‘The Glorious Leader’ has filled his administration with, along with 60’s radical burnouts who have filled our House and Senate, and those who seek accommodation with them.
I’m willing to grant that there are some few Liberals who are endemically naive and incapable of living in the real world. These are people who are constitutionally incapable of being honest with themselves and others. They are people who see the world as they WANT it to be and not as it is. They want change for the way it makes THEM feel and not for any RESULT – oriented purpose based on logic and sound economic principles.
Then there are the OTHERS….These are the Liberal Ideologues who would be willing accomplices to the ultimate takeover of our country by a tyrannical totalitarian regime.
Healthcare? Whose health? Certainly not theirs. They won’t be trapped in the onerous plans that they are trying to ram down our throats. There will be no 40% tax on their CADILLAC health care. As in so many things, these elitist crooks have exempted themselves from that which they so easily mandate for us.
They have cooked the books SO many times they are not even sure what’s come out of that committee…BECAUSE IT HASN’T BEEN WRITTEN YET!
They babble on about “savings”. ARE you mad? I SURE the hell am! Savings? Under 900 billion dollars?
The actual cost, the one they don’t want to tell you about, is more like TWO TRILLION dollars. Oh, along the way they’ll strip 500 or 600 million dollars from Medicare and make sure some 12 to 20 million ILLEGAL ALIENS get plenty of coverage. How does that strike all you AARP seniors who voted for that sick JOKE in the Whitehouse?
The Democrat OBAMA-KENNEDY-BAUCUS  health care bill is indeed an Ephemeral Chimera…
And the Chimera is a monster.

THIEVES IN THE NIGHT—AMERICA’S POLITICAL THUGOCRACY.

October 15, 2009

The Baucii Caucii met in the dark of night to rob America of its freedom of choice, impose fines, and threaten imprisonment on those who do not agree with them and enslave us, our children and their children’s children, to a system that is more akin to Stalinist Russia than the America of Washington, Franklin, Jefferson, Madison or Monroe. Neither is it the America that preserved  democracy for the world, or the America of my youth, or the America that I was privileged to serve in the United States Marine Corps. Our BIRTHRIGHT as American citizens is being stolen by an elitist political autocracy whose every move, since the coronation of the Anointed One and his gaggle of Marxist incompetents, has been unconstitutional or just damned wrong – if not illegal. It has nothing in it of the American way and everything of some totalitarian third world state, a la Bluto Chavez. The fringe stream media has been trumpeting the passing of the Senate version of the the health-care plan  (which it is not), saying it will SAVE the US government, and those IRRELEVANT taxpayers, billions of dollars…WHICH IT WON’T… It’s all smoke and mirrors folks…Where it isn’t smoke and mirrors it’s outright lies
The media has also trumpeted the passage of the bill out of committee as a triumph of bi-partisanship… really?!! Olympia Snowe?? The Rino in name and deed…..that Olympia Snowe.
Folks, we need to let her know that regardless of where we live we will actively campaign against her and support her opponents. The same applies to that other giant of conservatism, Susan Collins. Put them on notice…let them know we are watching and we WILL act.
This Senate version of the Unhealthy for America bill will attempt to be melded to the House version…one pile of stinking dog doo to another stinking pile. It’s doubtful that this thing will ever live to see the light of day…sort of like the babies that will be murdered in the ABORTION FUNDING which isn’t in the bill.
These pathetic clowns have to do this in the dark of night in secret. Because if Americans find out what is actually in this travesty nothing, absolutely nothing, will protect them from the righteous anger of the American people, because one of the rights given by God and the Constitution of the United States of America is to throw the government the hell out of there!

PLAINLY SPEAKING–ISRAEL FAVORS SANCTIONS–SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLEM.

October 14, 2009

“Those who seek peace should prepare for war.” Once again, and this time somewhat to my surprise, Israel has spoken in barely disguised language that it ‘strongly favors’ sanctions, just as it is ‘strongly’ prepared if they don’t work.
Our country and its pampered citizens are burned out after eight years of conflict in Iraq and Afghanistan. Thank God we still have the best young men and women in the world in our military, we have the best of the best….except for, just possibly, the IDF. It’s not really a fair comparison. The Israeli Defense Forces are primarily a citizen soldiery….every young Israeli citizen is required to serve…women included. Active service is 2-3 years, though in a national emergency service can be required to age 49.
Israelis are born into the threat of war and the ongoing presence of terror. It is a crucible that has shaped the character and the psyche of this magnificent little nation. The Israeli people do not have the burn out option.
Israel now faces possibly its greatest challenge ever and has not flinched  or faltered.
While our politicians in Washington seek ways to devalue the freedom of our citizens, demoralize our military and subvert our Constitution…Israel seeks only peace, freedom for its citizens to live full and rewarding lives, and a military with no wars to fight….Israel is like the kid who knows he’s going to have to fight the school bully on his way home and steels himself to do it.
It is an island of democracy in a sea of hatred not of it’s choosing
On Monday 10-12, Israel Military Chief Gabi Ashkenazi said ‘All options are on the table’.
On Sunday 10-11, Russian President Medvedev said he had been assured by Israeli officials that Israel was not planning to attack Iran’s Nuclear facilities… Really?
Ashkenazi went on to say, “The best way to deal with the Iranian nuclear threat was through sanctions against the regime.” But he said, “Israel was preparing for every option to make sure that the Islamic regime did not go nuclear”. Ashkenazi is a plain spoken man who rarely gives interviews.
I hear the WOLVERINE growling….actually they don’t growl as much as they snarl…but I think that’s going to be Iran’s problem.
A senior Israeli official said in response to Medvedev’s statement that he does not speak for us and ‘OUR POLICY HAS NOT CHANGED’….for him who has ears…let him hear.
The key to what will force Israel’s hand will not come from feckless Washington and the weak administration there.
It will be Russia….Though Russia has promised S-300 advanced air defense systems, it has dragged its feet on the delivery…. Syria and Iran reportedly have the Russian Pantsyr-S1E system, which has been successfully penetrated by Israel over Syrian air space in tests of its capability. If Russia decides to deliver the S-300, all bets are off.
If sanctions go nowhere, which they will…this may be the deciding factor.
Whatever happens, the Israelis can’t be much clearer than that soft snarl.

ANITA DUNN : HERO OF THE OBAMA UNION….ECHOES OF ‘PAPA JOE’.

October 13, 2009

Anytime you see somebody talking really fast and breathlessly take a real  good look…..
I watched Ms Dunn’s interview with CNN as objectively as I could, and aside from thinking she didn’t know what she was talking about… because it WAS nonsense, I couldn’t help but notice her demeanor. And it glared – ‘She’s lying’. Not just the average run of the mill lie…but the kind of lie serial liars like her boss use…the kind that shows they know you know they are lying.
Aside from the blatant attack on the first amendment that is being perpetrated by President Barack Obama‘s Whitehouse Marxist Cadre at his specific instruction, special “treatment” has been ordered by His Highness for Fox News, a particular pain in the royal posterior.
I’m beginning to wonder when this bunch is going to hold their own Wannsee Conference. Or maybe they already have.
The Glorious Leader doesn’t have a problem with MSNBC, CBS, ABC, CNN or the other suck up outlets…or Georgie Boy Stephanopoulos, who helped the leader figure out he wasn’t a MUSLIM, for that matter…but man oh man! Those dudes from FOX….”this is a wing of the Republican party”.
Let’s see if we’ve got this right Ms Dunn…. Most conservatives on FOX will take on the GOP every bit as quickly as as the Administration or Democrat Politburo. We view the GOP as the ones who left conservative principles behind and lost us the Senate, the House and the Presidency. Fox News gives more actual news, REAL BALANCED news, on one afternoon than you will get from most of the other outlets in a week. You see Ms Dunn, the American people aren’t quite the rubes you folks took us for.
You’re scared to death and you should be. People listen to honest to goodness intelligent and really well informed conservative outlets, whether they be print or broadcast. Witness please the demise of  one major left-leaning bird cage liner after another. Funny thing…most of the conservative papers are doing ok, given that there is a general shift away from print media. All we get from the liberal broadcast media is a concentration of DNC talking points, that are virtually clones of one another and that mirror the lies of the day. Listening to excerpts from this stuff on any different day is like a journey through Babel.
The liberal broadcast outlets, with rare exception, are starving to death…Air America steals money from foundations for kids…they can’t get sponsors to save their asses. Rush Limbaugh has more listeners in one day than the whole pack of Liberal leftist lapdog press.
That’s why people listen and watch conservative outlets. That’s why every time someone like Dunn, Gibbs, or any of the rest of that gang opens their mouths, more people find their way to FOX, Conservative talk radio and Conservative on-line media… it ‘s simple… it’s so simple they just can’t figure it out…
IT’S CALLED TRUTH.

US – ISRAELI JOINT EXERCISES…THE EAGLE VISITS THE WOLVERINE.

October 12, 2009

AND NO, I’m not referring to the feckless George Mitchell, though that subject is worthy of a brief exploration. Former Democratic Majority Leader George Mitchell, President Barry Hussein’s  “Special Envoy for Middle East Peace“, put the Boffo in Buffoon during meetings with the Israeli leadership on Thursday Oct 10. Caroline Glick wrote in Jewish World Review “An atmosphere of fantasy pervaded President Barack Obama‘s Middle East peace processor George Mitchell’s meetings with Israeli leaders on Thursday“. “In separate photo opportunities, Mitchell stood next to President Shimon Peres and Defense Minister Ehud Barak and pledged to surmount all obstacles to achieve peace, not only between Israel and the Palestinians but between Israel, Syria and Lebanon and with the whole Arab world”.
Really George? Mmm, was that psychedelics or psychotropics George?
Kudos to the Israeli leadership for keeping a straight face for the cameras.
The third member of the Triple Clowns of Middle East diplomacy behind the Glorious Leader and Madame Hillary is in somebody else’s world. It’s hard to see how the Israelis or any one can take us seriously right now. If they gave out MEDALS for incompetence and ineptitude running to sheer ignorance…..?. Maybe they have.
Largely under the radar, the US is participating in the largest Israeli military exercise in several years.
Israel states that these five day exercises are a nation-wide readiness program and NOT preparation for war. The Israelis are quick to say that these exercises have been in the works for a year.
Since the last go around with Hamas in Lebanon and the showering of Israeli towns with rockets and short range missiles, the ongoing and increasing threat from Iran, the new terror threat being ginned up by the Palestinian radicals over the old Temple Mount worship issue, and the continued threat from Syria and Hamas in Lebanon, it’s not surprising that the Israelis make these military and civilian exercises a top national priority. We are largely along for the ride. It is significant that our participation will largely concern itself with missile defense…That’s what we are being told anyway.
We used to say that while you’re sleeping your enemy is pumping iron. Israel pumps iron BECAUSE of its enemies.
It’s surprising that under President Barack Hussein Obama these exercises have not been curtailed or even canceled, given his love affair with all things Muslim.
OR could it be that his Saudi Masters, who greatly fear a nuclear Iran and have publicly supported an Israeli surgical strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities, have told him to cool it? Connecting one more dot, the Pentagon has approved and accelerated the MOP (Massive Ordnance Penetrator), a 30,000 lb. super bomb capable of reaching the deepest hardened sites. This weapon has been in the works for years and is probably already operational or very near to it.
Wolverines have been recorded taking down full grown moose…or tearing down a mountain cabin if really peed. Eagles hunt from great heights.
Sort of makes it look like rubber hits the road time folks.
The Eagle and the Wolverine…very interesting.

THE MOUSE IS A WOLVERINE IN DISGUISE : ISRAEL’S SECOND WARNING.

October 11, 2009

Any woodsman can tell you, if you tangle with a peed off Wolverine you’re going to have a Grizzly-sized problem on your hands.
For the second time in several weeks, the Israelis have given clear indication of their intentions for those whose heads are not firmly lodged in retro-defilade… an irreverent Marine Corps analogy for having your head where the sun doesn’t shine. Come to think about it, it sort of sounds like our foreign policy.
I love it when Hillary Clinton and Barack try to bully  the Israelis… all it accomplishes is to make both of them look just as incompetent as they  are, with respect to history and factual reality as it pertains to the region and ESPECIALLY the Israelis. Listening to Hillary flaunt the administration’s spiel on the Palestinians is like watching the Three Stooges, with her playing all the parts. “The Lady In Waiting” is reminiscent of Madam Madeleine Half-Bright, that other towering genius of foreign affairs. Barry Hussein had better watch his back ’cause the Clintons are watching him like a couple of vultures over a dying coyote.
On Sept 25, (WordPress), I wrote that Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu‘s speech before the UN was significant, because of its “lack of warning, threat, or hint of bellicosity”. What should have been heard was the silence. Then on Sept 27, I wrote that Dan Gillerman, former  Israeli Ambassador to the UN, responded to some of the vacuum-brained beltway and media ‘experts’, who had stated that Israel ‘didn’t have the stuff’ to do the job in an interview with Fox News on Saturday, Sept 25. Gillerman not only plainly stated that they were capable, but that they were prepared to go it alone.
I said I have some Israeli friends – one in particular, who has had the dubious distinction of having two different tanks shot out from under him in two different Arab-Israeli wars and survived to talk about it. (LIBERAL CRACKHEADS please note: peace loving Arabs  have attacked Israel without provocation in… let’s all count…. FIVE separate wars!). I wrote about my friend Jack. He is my idea of a typical Israeli. Down to earth and determined in all he does. This is a man I would have been proud to serve with. I write this only to illustrate that the Israelis generally are not given to idle threat or bombastic verbal display.
As such, Ambassador Gillerman’s statement was a glaring one for those with wits enough to LISTEN to what he said. I wrote that the Israelis are not into idle threats… they do not say things they do not mean. I also said that the Mossad is nothing like our CIA and had been years ahead of us on the whole Iran thing… small wonder. The lives of millions of innocent people are on the line on a daily basis. The Israelis are very serious about what they do… and especially about what they say. The Mossad does not like to share information with us. Our Government and our CIA leak like a sieve. Usually for cheap political gain.
There was a time when we called that treason.
Israeli former Deputy Defense Minister Ephraim Sneh stated in an interview with the Times of London, that if sanctions were not in place against Iran by Christmas, Israel WILL attack.
Once again…these guys don’t make idle threats. They know full well that neither the US nor the European Union really intend to impose meaningful sanctions against Iran, by Christmas or any time.
They simply don’t have the courage or the conviction and that’s what the Mullahs are wagering on. They see our President for the weak and insipid person he is and the real danger he represents to the Israeli people.
Minister Sneh’s interview was strike two….
The next one will be the Israeli Air Force….THEY are the Wolverine.
