Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued a scathing criticism of the UN’s cultural agency at his Cabinet meeting Sunday, for indefinitely postponing an exhibit on Jewish connections to the Holy Land.
UNESCO (the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) said last week it delayed the exhibition after Arab member states said it could disrupt Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations.
“It would not harm the negotiations,” Netanyahu said in a statement. “Negotiations are based on facts, on the truth, which is never harmful. But what does harm the negotiations is the automatic summoning of Israeli ambassadors in certain countries regarding matters of no substance, while significant violations by the Palestinian Authority pass without a response.
Have ya ever notice that the UN always backs the terrorists? Have you ever wondered why? Aiding and abetting the murder of innocents, turning a blind eye the rapes, embezzlement….hey…they are a criminal organization, and should be dissolved. At the very least, they need to get the hell out of OUR country!
Yes, I know… I said I wouldn’t be posting anything for a while, but THIS had to be copy and pasted! I notice that Kerry has NOT retracted, and continues to act as an emissary for the muzzies. Not cool dude!
The Hon. John Kerry, U.S. Secretary of State,
The State Department,
November 8, 2013
Dear Secretary Kerry,
After listening to you declare repeatedly over the past weeks that “Israel’s settlements are illegitimate”, I respectfully wish to state, unequivocally, that you are mistaken and ill advised, both in law and in fact.
Pursuant to the “Oslo Accords”, and specifically the Israel-Palestinian Interim Agreement (1995), the “issue of settlements” is one of subjects to be negotiated in the permanent status negotiations. President Bill Clinton on behalf of the US, is signatory as witness to that agreement, together with the leaders of the EU, Russia, Egypt, Jordan and Norway.
Your statements serve to not only to prejudge this negotiating issue, but also to undermine the integrity of that agreement, as well as the very negotiations that you so enthusiastically advocate.
Your determination that Israel’s settlements are illegitimate cannot be legally substantiated. The oft-quoted prohibition on transferring population into occupied territory (Art. 49 of the 4th Geneva Convention) was, according to the International Committee Red Cross’s own official commentary of that convention, drafted in 1949 to prevent the forced, mass transfer of populations carried out by the Nazis in the Second World War. It was never intended to apply to Israel’s settlement activity. Attempts by the international community to attribute this article to Israel emanate from clear partisan motives, with which you, and the US are now identifying.
Aside from reopening the government and agreeing to raise America’s debt over the current $16.7 trillion limit, the Republicans made several other concession to President Obama and the Democrats. One such example is that Obamacare would receive funding. The Republicans would get to take out a portion of the president’s signature legislation, but the law would substantially remain intact. The AP reports:
Under a proposal she and other GOP senators have been developing, a medical device tax that helps finance the health care law would be repealed, and millions of individuals eligible for subsidies to purchase health insurance under the program would be subject to stronger income verification.
In addition, some of the across-the-board “sequester” cuts would be reversed under the GOP plan. It has not been determined which specific cuts will be targeted at this time.
In exchange for meeting, at least momentarily, all of Obama’s demands, the House GOP is seeking a “framework” for future negotiations on addressing longer-term budget issues. These negotiations would be led for the Republicans by Rep. Paul Ryan, who is likely to seek a “grand bargain” resolving the nation’s structural budget problems.
War On Terror: The jury has been selected and the trial date set for the jihadist accused of 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 of attempted premeditated murder acting, as he says, in defense of the Taliban.
Army Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford has not received a phone call from Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson. Nor does the African-American veteran who was shot seven times by Maj. Nidal Hasan at Fort Hood expect to. He is merely relieved that nearly four years after the massacre at the Army base in Texas, a jury has finally been selected and a trial date has been set.
Thirteen people, including a pregnant soldier, were killed and 32 others shot Nov. 5, 2009, at the Killeen facility during Hasan’s rampage against soldiers being processed for deployment to Afghanistan. Hasan has said he did it in defense of the Taliban, a self-admitted act of terrorism on behalf of a foreign entity.
One would expect that when a self-proclaimed “soldier of Allah” shouting “Allahu Akhbar” opens fire on dozens of American citizens and soldiers, killing and maiming as many innocents as he can, it would have been called an act of terror. One of the great scandals of the Obama administration has been its shameful designation of the massacre as “workplace violence.”
Authorities say a man attending a Toby Keith concert in New Jersey’s most impoverished city climbed a fence into a housing complex, waved a Confederate flag and shouted racial slurs at residents.
33-year-old Darren Walp of Ridley Park, Pa., was arrested in Camden Saturday. He’s charged with bias intimidation, harassment and criminal trespassing and is in the Camden County Jail with bail of $5,000.
I don’t recall it being against the law to be ignorant. If it was, the prisons would be a LOT more full than they are now! I also don’t recall anything in the 1st Amendment stating you can use your freedom of speech, but you can’t offend anyone. If this clown is arrested, why haven’t all those who shout racial slurs at white people been arrested? Ya can’t have it both ways. Folks want to talk about ‘fair’, but these days, it’s only fair if white, Christian, conservatives, or idiots such as this clown are charged. Everyone else gets a free pass!
And I really wish these morons would stop using the Confederate battle flag as a prop to promote racism. That’s not what that flag was all about, and it annoys me to no end for people to claim it was about slavery, and the Southern DEMOCRATS wanting to keep it. Well, they did, but there weren’t that many slave owners who stood up against the federal government. It was a 10th Amendment issue for most soldiers. Slavery was already on the decline among white, and many former slaves were slave owners themselves, disproportionately so.
The fact is large numbers of free Negroes owned black slaves; in fact, in numbers disproportionate to their representation in society at large. In 1860 only a small minority of whites owned slaves. According to the U.S. census report for that last year before the Civil War, there were nearly 27 million whites in the country. Some eight million of them lived in the slaveholding states.
The ordinary Southern folks didn’t want the feds telling them what they could and could not do. Yes, slavery was one issue, but it was not the only issue. Slavery is an evil that is still in practice in several countries, which shall not be named in this post. Slavery would have ended on it’s own. Should the slaves have been freed? Oh HELL yeah. It was used as a very effective rallying cry for the north. But what those in the north did not realize, and apparently still don’t, is that what they were fighting for was a larger, and more intrusive, federal government, and fewer rights of the states.
Back to the assclown. Should he have been given a smack down? Verbally, of course. Yes. Should he have been arrested? No. Stupidity, sadly, isn’t a crime. If it was, every Obama supporter, in and out of the government, would be behind bars.
Those Stars and Bars should be a reminder of just what was lost, and needs to be regained. Liberty. We are in bondage to a tyrannical government, and those who shout the loudest about racism are the ones who put us there.
Yep! Been extremely preoccupied with cracker cruncher, and that genetically distorted creature referred to as a teenager. It’s been interesting, to say the least. So, obviously, due to family fun, I have not taken much time to actually post much. I have been paying as much attention as I can to what’s going on, but since the news is taboo in this house, I must rely on the internet for information.
So, they charged yon high school drop out with espionage, but sealed the complaint. I’m sorry, but that doesn’t make a lot of sense. Since we know what he’s charged with, why is the complaint sealed? It seems the kid isn’t the brightest bulb. I mean, really….if you want the public to know something that is going on you feel is wrong, do you head off to a foreign country, that isn’t exactly our best buds to spill it, or do you go to a national news source, like say…the Washington Post, or the New York Times, or perhaps the Chicago Sun Times, or some such media outlet. Well, the more I think about it, the more I don’t think he had the country’s best interest at heart. Yes, we DO need to know what’s what, but NO, we don’t much like the idea of said kid going off and yapping to folks who don’t need to know our business. They could have read about it like everyone else. This seriously bugs me!
It looks like my U.S. rep has failed to listen to the folks! She apparently thought that voting for spending nearly a trillion dollars of our tax money on a bill that is called one thing and does something completely different was a good idea. It wasn’t. Thankfully, there were enough Rs that went with the Ds on this one, so it failed. I’m really curious why the Ds were against it. I thought they LOVED spending our money to keep folks indebted to them?
And if that’s not bad enough, one of our TN senators has proven, once again, he is a RINO, and apparently has NO idea what folks want, or need, out here in the real world! Well, truth be told, they are BOTH RINOs! I really wish “The Sen” would primary that dude!! But DANG…. he’s hard headed! :D I had high hopes for Corker, after meeting him shortly after moving to Tennessee. He’s a rather likable fellow. Politicians and disappointment….hand in hand! sigh…
If you’re on FB, you’ll have noticed a TON of comments about Paula Deen being dropped by the Food Network. Are these people serious? This is what is so important? Some famous cook making ignorant comments? Has anyone not listened to the vulgarities in so called music? Even the commercials for sitcoms are offensive! The country is so bloomin’ divided thanks to the jackwagons in the government, and people are ‘defriending’ others because they don’t, or won’t get their knickers in a twist because of Deen? C’mon people! Snap out of it! Yes, what she said was wrong and offensive, but no more wrong and offensive than the crap you hear on MSNBC! Or on that moron, Maher’s show! Even Letterman has been known to say EXTREMELY offensive things, but no one has dropped HIS show, or defriended someone on Facebook because of them!
Well, much is going on in the world, and I am paying attention. Well, as best I can. However, right now, even though important and affecting them, my family is A #1 priority, and spending time with them comes first! We’ll still have an evil weasel in the White House when things get back to normal in my life…if that ever happens. I can wish otherwise, but alas…..
A federal judge has ruled that Google Inc. must comply with the FBI’s warrantless demands for customer data, rejecting the company’s argument that the government’s practice of issuing so-called national security letters to telecommunication companies, Internet service providers, banks and others was unconstitutional and unnecessary.
FBI counter-terrorism agents began issuing the secret letters, which don’t require a judge’s approval, after Congress passed the USA Patriot Act in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.
The letters are used to collect unlimited kinds of sensitive, private information, such as financial and phone records and have prompted complaints of government privacy violations in the name of national security. Many of Google’s services, including its dominant search engine and the popular Gmail application, have become daily habits for millions of people.
Exactly WHO is the FBI wanting to snoop on? Are they American citizens, or are they evil muzzie transplants? Either way, I think this is a real bad idea. The Patriot Act is not patriotic at all! This is not American! This is very reminiscent of the Soviet Union and SHOULD have been shot down in the Supreme Court!
I don’t use Google search, but do use gmail. I’m seriously considering checking out Reagan.com for my email, I don’t care if it is $40 a year! It would be worth it!! I’m really tired of the federal government over stepping its bounds, and violating the U.S. Constitution on a daily basis!!
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects,
against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated,
and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation,

and the persons or things to be seized.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has awarded $1.5 million to study biological and social factors for why “three-quarters” of lesbians are obese and why gay males are not, calling it an issue of “high public-health significance.”
Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Mass., has received two grants administered by NIH’s Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) to study the relationship between sexual orientation and obesity.
Just who thought this was a good idea? How ’bout let’s foot the bill for a study on why members of Congress are assholes!!!! Give me 1.5 MILLION dollars, and I give ya an answer! And find out just who are the worst assholes! Most would be Democrats, but I can guarantee there would be quite a few Republicans on that list as well!
It’s OUR freakin’ money! Use some common sense once in a while! If this is such an important study, there would be PRIVATE financing!!
Cannabis decriminalisation measures across the United States, including the medical use of marijuana in California, have been sharply criticised by the United Nations, which has warned Washington they violate the international drug conventions.
The International Narcotics Control Board (INCB), which polices the drug treaties, has also warned about the growing public health threat from the “unprecedented surge” in “legal highs” and called for concerted global action to curb the growing trade.
Launching its annual report in London, Raymond Yans, the INCB president, said that the successful ballots in Colorado and Washington to legalise the use of cannabis for recreational purposes and the fact that Massachusetts had recently become the 18th state to allow the use of cannabis for medicinal purposes violate the international drug conventions.
“They also undermine the humanitarian aims of the drug control system and are a threat to public health and wellbeing,” said Yans. He claimed that so-called “medicinal use” initiatives were little more than “a back-door to legalisation for recreational use”.
The INCB has warned the US government that medical cannabis must be properly regulated. “In some US states they are being operated in a way that is completely inappropriate and outside of the conventions,” the report says.
I’ll be perfectly honest…. I don’t think legalizing pot is such a great idea, but if certain states do legalize it, then that’s going to be their problem. I’m sure they’ll find out eventually perhaps they made a mistake. That being said, I don’t recall ANYWHERE in the U.S. Constitution that a foreign body, aka the Useless Nations has any say in what we, and a sovereign nation do. Nope. Nowhere!
Now, if there are other countries who want to allow the UN to order them around, that’s their business. Makes ‘em look stupid and incompetent to run their own countries, but hey…it’s still their own business. WE, The People of the United States, on the other hand, do NOT wish a bunch of feckless, foreign, corrupt, weasels telling us what we can, and cannot, do. We have enough of those already in D.C., thank you very much.
So, as far as I’m concerned, the Useless Numbuts can kiss my red, white, and blue hind end!! Then they can shove it where the sun don’t shine! They’d do well to remember what Yamamoto supposedly said, and likely did not, but true none the less: There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass.
“The President says….!” “The President says….!” Well, the so called president is a lying sack of male bovine excrement! I know…you’re shocked, aren’t you.( /snark) Ya know, Adolph Hitler, and his top echelon aka cronies, believed their own propaganda, too!
Harry Reid’s Senate still hasn’t passed a budget, even though the House has sent them one on a regular basis for the last four years. Now, tell me, who is at fault again? Oh that’s right…it’s BUSH’S fault! Can these people never take responsibility for their own actions? Or INACTION?
Who’s idea was sequestration? Well, it sure wasn’t Bush’s. Nope, that came from the Liar in Chief. Yet now, he turns around and blames the Republicans for HIS actions. Does the media call him on it? Well of course not! That would mean they’d have to actually do their jobs, and MR Obama might get his noise out of joint. Honestly, I’ve never seen such a whining titty baby in all my life. A spoiled little boy who throws temper tantrums, and blames someone else when the lamp gets broken.
I’m pretty fed up with the pettiness of this administration, and thanks to the low information voter, the ones that spend their time watching Honey Boo Boo, whoever the hell she is, and American Idol, instead of looking for the truth, we are stuck with him for four more years. Well, unless the House uses what sense is left, and starts impeachment!
No children are going to starve! No air traffic controllers are going to let your plane crash! In the grand scheme of things, $86 billion is a drop in the bucket. Or is it $89 billion? Whatever. It’s still NOTHING compared to the billions upon billions that are wasted by the federal government and it’s alphabets on a daily basis! The Democrats better pull their heads out of their collective hind ends, and get with the program! THEY are the reason this country is in the mess it’s in, NOT Bush! NOT the Republicans! THEY took over Congress in 2007, when that simpering botox queen snagged the gavel!
First cut….Obama phones! Second, all foreign aid to countries that will still hate us for free. Third, cut YOUR freakin’ salaries, and give it to the men and women who actually EARN theirs….the U.S. Military. And the list goes on. We don’t need to know why salmon swim up stream…they just do! We don’t need to watch shrimp on a treadmill. Who cares! Head Start is a waste of money, since any benefits gained are lost by the time the rug rats are in the 3rd grade. Oh, the list is endless! Now get up off your sorry asses and get to work! The border is NOT more secure than it’s ever been. We have NO business supporting murderers for decades…one bullet, problem solved! We have NO business supporting criminal aliens, AND their offspring. And NO MORE money for Obama’s cronies, in Hollyweird, or anywhere else! Imagine the BILLIONS we could save if Congress would do the job set forth in the Constitution, and no more! Mind boggling!
Oh, and one more thing….the Obama’s are no longer allowed to take lavish vacations! If we can’t, they can’t! AND they will start paying the taxpayers back every single dime they have stolen from us so they can tote their friends off to far off exotic places! And for the love of all that’s holy, tell that woman to stop spending OUR thousands on those butt ugly clothes she keeps exposing us to! Dear Lord, has that woman no taste at all???
If you had to cut your family’s budget, where would you cut?
Would you immediately start starving your children and stop wearing shoes? Of course not. You would look at the extras in your life—whether they were coffee shop lattes, movie tickets, or restaurant meals.
It’s a good thing the President wouldn’t be handling your budget. As Dan Holler of our sister organization, Heritage Action for America, has said: “If President Obama were making the decision for your family… he’d tell you to stop buying gas for your car and explain how you could only eat five days a week.”
If there is anyone I find more obnoxious than Barack Hussein Obama, it just might be Chrissy “Tingles” Matthews! This assflake has his head so far up Obama’s hind end, I’m surprised he hasn’t turned….brown!
A teacher at a public middle school in Florida has rubbed parents and school officials the wrong way with her highly unorthodox teaching methods.
The teacher, Anna Garrett, is on paid leave and under investigation because she allegedly used sandpaper to punish students who misspelled words during a spelling lesson, reports St. Petersburg CBS affiliate WTSP.
The alleged incident occurred on Jan. 23 in class in a sixth-grade class at Burns Middle School in Brandon, Fla., a rapidly growing Tampa area suburb.
Students and parents complained that Garrett forced the students to write previously misspelled words onto sandpaper repeatedly – until the coarse surface caused their fingers to bleed.
“We had to trace letters like ‘I’ and ‘J’,” 11-year-old Josh Sommer told CBS Tampa Bay. “By the end of the time, my whole table was bleeding.”
I’m all for kids learning how to spell correctly. I wouldn’t mind seeing proper punctuation either, but that’s another story. Apparently, penmanship is a thing of the past as well.
Way back in the Stone Age, when I was in school, we learned how to spell words by writing them over and over, looking them up on the dictionary, learning the proper use of said word, etc. There was no sandpaper involved. Just a lot of repetition, which actually WORKS!
We have teachers who post pictures of themselves, drugged and naked. We have teachers having sex with their students. We have teachers who are mentally and emotionally abusive to students. Now, we can add sadists to that list? Is this the ‘education’ that parents pay their taxes to promote? No, I didn’t think so! But I can bet ya dollars to donuts, every one of ‘em are a member of their teachers union. Just sayin’.
The Senate overwhelmingly confirmed President Obama’s choice of five-term Sen. John Kerry to be secretary of state, with Republicans and Democrats praising him as the ideal successor to Hillary Rodham Clinton.
The vote Tuesday was 94-3. One senator — Kerry — voted present and accepted congratulations from colleagues on the Senate floor. The roll call came just hours after the Senate Foreign Relations Committee unanimously approved the man who has led the panel for the past four years.
Overwhelmingly? Which means Republicans are useless to the country now. Congratulations. You have now given approval to Obama’s plans to destroy the country. You can all kiss my red, white and blue hind end! I will do all I can to see every single one of you replaced by those who actually BELIEVE in the Constitution and aren’t Obama sh*t lickers!
Hoeven (R-ND) and Murray (D-WA) didn’t vote, but it wouldn’t have made a difference. We got screwed once again!
According to E Magazine, the “Clunkers” program, which is officially known as the Car Allowance Rebates System (CARS), produced tons of unnecessary waste while doing little to curb greenhouse gas emissions.
The program’s first mistake seems to have been its focus on car shredding, instead of car recycling. With 690,000 vehicles traded in, that’s a pretty big mistake.
According to the Automotive Recyclers Association (ARA), automobiles are almost completely recyclable, down to their engine oil and brake fluid. But many of the “Cash for Clunkers” cars were never sent to recycling facilities. The agency reports that the cars’ engines were instead destroyed by federal mandate, in order to prevent dealers from illicitly reselling the vehicles later.
The remaining parts of each car could then be put up for auction, but program guidelines also required that after 180 days, no matter how much of the car was left, the parts woud be sent to a junkyard and shredded.
And they are just now figuring this out? This is something that people with actual common sense already knew! Just more proof that Demtards are too stupid to breathe without instructions, and WAY too stupid to hold elected office. Apparently, not a one of ‘em ever sits down and considers the ramifications of their actions. Hence, we’re in a whole heap of hurt due to the asininity of politicians.
The U.S. Senate voted 89-8 to approve legislation to avoid the fiscal cliff despite having only 3 minutes to read the 154-page bill and budget score.
Multiple Senate sources have confirmed to CNSNews.com that senators received the bill at approximately 1:36 AM on Jan. 1, 2013 – a mere three minutes before they voted to approve it at 1:39 AM.
Do you sign a contract without reading it first? If so, you are as stupid as those 89 U.S. Senators!
The bill is 154-pages and includes several provisions that are unrelated to the fiscal cliff, including repealing a section of ObamaCare, extending the wind-energy tax credit, and a rum tax subsidy deal for Puerto Rican rum makers.
Excuse me? Tax credits for wind energy? You mean those big ol’ wind mill things that kill thousands of birds, including endangered species, on a regular basis? And rum? I wasn’t aware that rum was a necessity of life, unlike food that is becoming more and more expensive thanks to the fecklessness of Congress, and that fool in the White House.
