Should America support Israel?

Israel’s right to exist, to occupy their land is a right that is entrenched in historic relevance.  
    
Israel existed right up until the time of the Roman Empire. When the Romans conquered the land, Jews were permitted to live there.

There are two periods where they were effectively forced from their property, the first time in 70 A.D. and the other sometime around 135 A.D.

There’s always been a Jewish presence in Israel and for hundreds of years; the Middle East was easily the most peaceful part of the World.

Some have forgotten that Rahm Emanuel arranged meetings between Yitzhak Rabin and Yasir Arafat back in the early nineties and during this exchange, Jewish leaders expressed the need to create a Palestinian government to remove the rapidly expanding Palestinian population away from Israeli hands.

The pressing concern of ‘the day’ was Israel’s inevitable destruction and as such the situation must be handled immediately to manage any potential hostile presence in the region.

This seemed agreeable to Israel although it’s not been terribly smooth. (A peace agreement including both sides of the Gaza along with the United States of America)

Obviously following incidents in the late nineties as well as September 11th, Israel has remained steadfast in reliability with America struggling to define and contain threats, global and domestic pertaining to hostile enemies from within the Palestinian and other Islam-based territories.

Now we’re under a different Administration that still includes Emmanuel, oddly enough and things have never been worse.

We have a Muslim President who lied his way into the oval office and since then has appointed several fellow Muslims, radical Marxists, Socialists or other unsavory characters that have effectively dismantled our founding papers since 2008.

This Administration lies to the American people and ridicules our allies while bowing to Islamist leaders, something never done in the history of America, turning the United States Presidency into a mockery, something to be laughed at, no longer respected. Yet, all things considered, Israel must be reckoned with, a formidable force.

Why should the US support Israel? I can give you two solid reasons.

Israel commands the strongest military presence in the Middle East and America would be wise to continue considering Israel a strong ally and perhaps working a little harder on that relationship (perhaps not forcing Bibi to use the servants entrance during meetings at the White House?)

If the powers in Washington had operational brain cells, perhaps they’d use their resources to neutralize Iran’s capacity to maintain nuclear weapons, (yes they have them)

Israel is fundamentally part of the United States’ fabric, part of who we are as a people.

(When the current undocumented President announced that we’re a ‘Muslim’ Nation, he was obviously off of his meds, for we could be nothing farther from)

Our founding draws on the uniquely Hebrew concept of the holiness of the individual and love for the vulnerable. We’re connected for this and other reasons and our destinies and welfare will always be connected, never to be separated.

In many ways, the sacredness of both lands reflect upon one another and must not be banished from political exercise, religion, public life or any other action.

Liberals and their universalism demands that Israel make concessions to appease Arabs but this rarely appeases anyone and the truth is that there is plenty of room for Arabs in other areas and Israel must be left alone at this point.

This Administration’s betrayal of Israel is both shocking and disheartening and exposes the range of evil and/naïve thinking in the people in today’s government AND media who seem to not understand (or care) what is truly at stake right now.

This immoral behavior should disturb us all

Treason

leave a comment »

By Annie Hamilton

TREASON – This word imports a betraying, treachery, or breach of allegiance to the United States or its’ protectors

Life in America certainly has changed. We’re watching our banks crumble, businesses fold and taxes grow despite the Government’s failure to protect our financial and regulatory interests. Since January 20th we’ve experienced the horror of a dwindling Congressional backbone, cuts in our Military and an inexperienced President who seemingly despises Americans but would rather cozy up to Dictators and threaten prosecution toward those who practice freedom of speech and personal responsibility. In short we’re in the middle of a mess that requires experience, wisdom, hard work and a return to traditional values.

Now we’ve learned that even the highly coveted Pulitzer has fallen prey into fraudulent hands, soiling the prestige of this prizes’ integrity, permanently. This is unfortunate news for Writers/Reporters of substance as this is the highest achievement and recognition these professionals can earn.

Background

On April 20th, 2009, (one year to the date of the original article’s publication) The New York Times published a press release announcing their receipt of five Pulitzer prizes. One of those, awarded to NYT Reporter David Barstow was especially troubling as its’ intention served as a reward for Barstow’s hit piece on Retired Military Analysts (RMAs), dramatically titled “Behind TV Analysts, Pentagon’s Hidden Hand”

Amongst other things, the piece alleged a manipulative effort to generate favorable news coverage of the Administration’s wartime performance as well as accusations that RMA’s (retired military analysts) were ‘using’ their influence and ties to military contractors in order to gain unfair opportunities to enhance their “individual business interests”

This article so greatly concerned readers that forty one members of Congress filed a formal request for the Department of Defense to conduct a thorough investigation into the ‘relationship’ between the RMA’s and alleged activities and/or advantages. Amongst the specific concerns raised by Congress was the potential use of appropriated funds for the serving of ‘Propaganda or Publicity purposes not authorized by Congress’ As such, under Section 1056 of the Duncan Hunter Act for Fiscal year 2009, the prohibitions were reiterated and a formal request for a detailed report was demanded to be released to Congress within 90 days of the enactment.

In order to fully and appropriately address the issues and Congressional concerns, more than 12,000 pages of documents were reviewed and in excess of 30 witnesses were interviewed, including; RMA’s, Department of Defense Public Affairs personnel, and others who provided outreach briefings, papers and media representatives.

Out of the documentation received and scrutinized, absolutely no findings were discovered that positively identified a pattern for RMA’s tendency to gain favorable advantage through their position or authority. As such, no further investigation was deemed warranted and the matter was closed.

So it begs the question, what on earth was Barstow thinking when he put the article together? Why develop a 3 page hit piece on our Nation’s bravest individuals unless it was intended to further serve his radical leftist agenda? Is he incapable of gathering (and interpreting) accurate research or does he just have a beef with authority figures or the military? Furthermore, why in the hell would the Pulitzer committee give the New York Times one prize, let alone five, after the publication of the 85 page report exonerating these inappropriately targeted officials? Shouldn’t there be accountability, a day of reckoning for this so-called ‘Reporter’ who failed to meet the burden of proof in order to satisfy his story?

Yes, the freedom of speech is a protected Constitutional freedom under our first amendment rights. However, not when what you are saying (or in this case, writing) is a falsehood, riddled with lies and exaggerations. In this case, its slanderous speech, in an attempt to smear the good names and reputations of the individuals named in the poorly written article. It hardly requires genius to understand that Mr. Barstow’s intent was to damage the credibility and reputation of the Bush Administration, our Military and that his publicly discredited attempts to undercut our Nation’s bravest accomplishes little more than turning the Prize, his newspaper and his reputation into a laughing stock.

And we wonder why our newspapers are going out of print? With shoddy reporting like Barstow’s, little wonder why the paper is losing money.

NEW YORK TIMES DOWN TO $34 MILLION IN THE BANK… <http://www.nypost.com/seven/04222009/business/1_3b_debt_rattle_165559.htm>

This is why…there is so little accountability with these unprofessional twits. Until Mr. Barstow comes forward, relinquishing his falsely earned prize, I’d implore the public and the Military to hold him fully accountable for his actions.

File lawsuits, lobby against him personally, professionally and against the New York Times. Don’t give up until he recants his statements, apologizing publicly to the American people, the military, and their families for crying wolf AND for allowing such lies to be told that it required the investigative efforts and energy of forty one congress people and government staff to further investigate for wrongdoing.

We need to rise up in protest to this conduct as it borders on treason. It should not be permitted.

Dealing with AARP

leave a comment »

I get the most hilarious emails from my friend, a critical care nurse and health care advocate.

She riles up the Administration as much as the rest of us and her latest crusade is the idiots at AARP and their commercial for supplemental insurance. She keeps asking why they are endorsing the Pelosi-KamaKazi Health Care bill, when it will undermine the care that seniors get, necessecarily require rationing, denying care, and increasing expenses and taxes for all of us? As the medicare beneit payments are cut and various procedures are disallowed due to age, AARP will be standing to sell supplemental policies to seniors. They already do this but they evidently perceive that they stand to make more money if marxist medicine is rammed down our throats. (how much are these tools spending on advertising, anyway?)

So, here is the project du jour:  Call their toll free # for supplemental insurance: the number is 800-258-0395                   

When someone answers, they will ask you for your zip code so they can start your ‘application’ you tell them they don’t ‘need’ your zip code but rather what you think of AARP, what you think of the health care bill, why are they trying to jam socialist medicine down our throats? of the Health Care bill they are trying to ram down our throats. Also that thinking Americans recognize what AARP is about and why and how they endorsed this bill in the first place and how we would never forget.

Let’s have fun with these people. While they spend thousands or millions to advertise on television, let’s tie up their toll free lines, annoying the folks on the other end. Imagine if they started getting hundreds or thousands of calls every day, complaining about their endorsement of this rotten health care bill?  Be ASSERTIVE but POLITE. please don’t be rude. I plan to call ten times per day and always be polite. I will think of different questions to ask each time and would like for others to do the same. Ask questions about coverage, premiums, etc.  Ask them how they can possibly endorse an unconstitutional health care bill? tie up their phone lines. Think of it as ‘reverse phone soliciting’ It is the least we can do.
