An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Most Israelis view America as a diminishing ally for two reasons:
- The Obama Administration is viewed as overtly hostile toward the Jewish state, a perception only enhanced by Secretary of State John Kerry’s recent remarks that Israeli concerns over Iran’s nuclear deal were secondary to America’s agenda; and
- Washington’s failure to correctly gauge the “Arab Spring,” punish the Assad regime for using chemical weapons against Syrians, and leverage economic sanctions to bring an actual end to Iran’s nuclear program make America look weak in the Middle East.
Over the past year, Israel has been seen cozying up to Russia, which has been all too happy to fill the void left by America, not only in Israel, but around the region.
To be perfectly honest, I don’t trust the government of the U.S. either, so I can’t say as I blame the Israelis, however, turning to a country that was famous for it’s progroms is a little disturbing.
I would hope that the Israelis know that just because that jackwagon in D.C. and his minions appear extremely anti-Israel, the majority of U.S. citizens are VERY PRO-Israel!
You can read the entire text of the ‘deal’ on Joel Roseburg’s blog. Pastor Saeed was never even mentioned in the ‘negotiations’. Why? Because American lives mean nothing to this administration. They proved that in Benghazi, when Americans were begging for help, and were denied. The doctor who provided the information that got bin Laden is languishing in a Pakistani prison on trumped up charges, and this administration does nothing. So, is it any wonder that this administration sells out our ONLY ally in the Middle East to a terrorist regime?
They brutalize and murder our brothers and sisters, and that POS taking up space and wasting oxygen is arming them to do so. We can ask why, but I think we know the reason. He is not a Christian, and does not have any Christian values.
I pray for those who did not cave into the forced conversions, and are now with our Lord. I also pray for those who perpetrate these heinous acts, and those who aid and abet them…that they may stand before the Throne and answer for their barbarism. Are such acts becoming so common place that no one notices? Or is that the administration has ordered such events not to be covered by the media?
Do they really condone the attempted rape and murder of a 5 year old girl? Can they really accept as normal the forced enslavement of little girls. called marriage, to vile old men? Do they consider the torture and murder of women, the rape of little girls by so called clerics to just be ‘the culture’? Where is the outrage when a woman is beaten to death or burned for some imagined slight, in the name of ‘family honor’?
I wonder if the so called atheist groups, calling for an end to any Christian symbols of faith in the public square, or even Christmas songs sung in the public school, in direct violation of the 1st Amendment, are aiding in the fast take over of the U.S. by the same brutal jihadists that are slaughtering innocents around the world? If they were truly atheists, it wouldn’t matter that children sang songs about Jesus’ birth, but alas, they are followers of satan, doing his bidding, as are those same murderous 7th century thugs who practice bestiality.
This is not acceptable in ANY civilized culture, but if we continue to allow this administration, and yes, even Congress, to continue to support this behavior through American tax dollars and weapons, then we are no better than those who pull the trigger, or wield the sword, or strap on the bomb.
Please educated yourself on this murderous, pedophile following cult. It is not a religion in the truest sense of the word, and peace has no part in its teachings. It is a cult of hatred and death, admired by Adolph Hitler, At least Hitler came up with the ‘people’s car’, also known as the Volkswagen. The muslims have contributed NOTHING in 1200 years!
The misnamed ‘knock out game’ is no longer limited to roving bands of black youths/terrorists. Perhaps, since both the media, supposed leaders, and the administration have been silent, it was deemed ok for a muslim to join in the fun? After all, those they consider an ‘authority‘ has stated “For Jews, we do not have but the sword and by extension we need to hold an all-out war against them and not talk with them.”
It’s down right embarrassing when the Secretary of State has become a verb, betraying the one real ally we have, or should I say had, in the region. This is our administration. The same administration that provides weapons to ‘rebels’. Are we just going to accept the murder of thousands more through the ‘negotiations’ of weak willed administration?
As Bonhoeffer said, “The ultimate test of a moral society is the kind of world that it leaves to its children.” Is this the world we want to leave to our children? Or will we say NO MORE, and eradicate the problem?
There are already areas in France, Great Britain, and yes, even in the United states, (to the point that even the prisons are kowtowing to their cult) that have been taken over by the muslims, imposing THEIR will, contrary to civilized law. Do we dare call ourselves ‘civilized’ if we allow this to continue? Are we so weak that we are unable to put a stop to the slow, but steady, take over of our nation by barbarians? Remember ancient Rome? They embraced barbarians too, and the result wasn’t pretty. England is already heading in that direction. Is the entire Western world, considered civilized, heading in the same direction? When governments continue to bow to towards Mecca, the answer is unequivocally…..YES!
It’s hard to figure out what’s going through Hussein Obama’s little mind. Sometimes, it’s true that it’s fairly easy, but other times, there is no logic to his actions. How does a rational person come to any understanding with an illogical being?
This time, a rug is at the center of the controversy. Yes, a rug. I’ve no doubt if someone went to the streets of any city in America, and asked if they knew anything about Armenia, we’d get deer in the headlights. Rather like that video, that I can’t find anymore, of a gentleman asking everyday folks on the streets in California how they felt about the death of Martin Luther King, Jr, and if they’d be attending the funeral in Washington, D.C. Dear Lord! The man has been dead for 45 years, and they didn’t know this? Public education. Plain and simple. And CHOOSING to be ignorant. But that’s a different subject. We’re talking about Armenia right now.
I’m going to share a bit of my history here, and how I was introduced to the country. Yes, I had actually heard of it, but I really didn’t know much about the country itself. I didn’t even know where it was….geography was never my strong suit.
Back when I was 17, and somewhat of a wild child, I did some hitch hiking. Back then, it was actually safe. I was visiting my oldest sister at the time, outside of D.C., when friend of mine and I decided it would be a great idea to go to California. My BFF had had a little girl in recent months, and I wanted to see her. She lived in California. Makes sense, right? I won’t go into a lot of details about that trip other than to say we made it safely to our destination, clean, fed, rested, and with a few bucks in our pockets, plus a carton of smokes each. Yep! Times were definitely different.
By the time we reached the outskirts of Palo Alto, I was extremely sick. I had caught a cold, or the flu, or something. Being exposed to a lot of people, out in the elements, etc., no matter how well you get treated ‘on the road’, tends to wear you down physically. That night, it was raining, I was hacking up a lung, and my friend was starting to worry we’d never catch a ride, when a van stopped, and backed up for us. In that van was a man from Armenia. I wish I could remember his name! He and his wife helped change me!
As I said, I was sick, so the man took us to his house, let us both shower, and fed us an amazing meal. While we ate, he and his wife told us about themselves, how they and their families had immigrated to the U.S. because they were Christians. Now, being the kid of a first generation American, whose parents also immigrated to the U.S. because they were Christians, I understood, to a degree. Remember, I was 17, and the world for a teenager at that time was pretty small.
They told us of the persecution the Christians still suffered in Armenia by the Turkish government, and touched on a genocide I had never heard of. They were both very strong in their faith, which was obvious by their undeniable kindness to us.
When it was time to crawl between those clean sheets, the wife knocked on the door and asked if she could come in. By that time, my fever was pretty high, and my memory of that night a little fuzzy, but I remember her asking if she and her husband could pray for me. I kind of believed in God, leaning toward agnostic, but I said sure, why not. Well, they both put their hands on my head, and prayed for healing, that I would be well in the morning, and turn my life around. Ok, I was skeptical. I admit it. I repeat, I was 17, and I knew everything as most teenagers do, right? I knew there were free clinics in San Francisco, which was our destination, and I thought maybe I could get a shot, or antibiotics, or something, when we got there.
When I woke in the morning, my fever was gone, I was no longer coughing, sneezing, etc., and felt pretty dadburn good! Yeah, I was shocked, and so was my friend, but the couple just smiled when I thanked them, and told me to thank God, since He is the Great Healer. A couple from Armenia made a HUGE difference in my life, and I’ve never forgotten them, even if I can’t remember their name.
When I read about this rug that Obama won’t take out of storage out of fear of offending Turkey, I became quite angry and thought about that couple in California, who left their home to be free from the tyranny. Thankfully, they were born long after the events that created the rug, the orphans of the Armenian massacres.
In a letter to the White House, members of Congress stated: “The Armenian Orphan Rug is a piece of American history and it belongs to the American people.” The rug woven by Armenian orphans and gifted to President Calvin Coolidge in appreciation for U.S. humanitarian assistance following Ottoman Turkey’s genocide of over 1.5 million Armenians from 1915-1923.
Many believe that Adolph Hitler was the first to attempt the complete the annihilation of a people, but he wasn’t, although he did learn a lot from the Muslims about slaughter. There have been mass murders throughout human history, but the 20th century brought genocide almost to an art. The Turks were the first of that century to attempt to wipe out an entire population of people. Thankfully, they didn’t succeed in killing all of them, or perhaps, I might not be here today. Were they descendents of those orphans?
I wish I knew, but likely they had relatives who were murdered by the Muslims, just as I had relatives who were murdered by them.
This rug is not only a piece of history, not only a piece of Armenian and American history; it is a piece of world history! The description:
The Armenian orphan rug measures 11?7? x 18?5? and is comprised of 4,404,206 individual knots. It took Armenian girls in the Ghazir Orphanage of the Near East Relief Society 10 months to weave. The rug was delivered to the President Coolidge on December 4, 1925, in time for Christmas, with a label on the back of the rug, which reads “IN GOLDEN RULE GRATITUDE TO PRESIDENT COOLIDGE.”
For the Obama administration to worry more about offending the descendents of the perpetrators of the genocide than the descendents of those few who survived is unconscionable! The decision to pack away a piece of history is an insult to all Americans, and should be rectified immediately!
Israel is fuming with the White House for confirming that it was the Israeli Air Force that struck a military base near the Syrian port city of Latakia on Wednesday, hitting weaponry that was set to be transferred to Hezbollah.
Israel has not acknowledged carrying out the strike, one of half a dozen such attacks widely ascribed to Israel in recent months, but an Obama administration official told CNN on Thursday that Israeli warplanes had indeed attacked the Syrian base, and that the target was “missiles and related equipment” set for delivery to Hezbollah in Lebanon.
Ya wanna know how I know that Obama is NOT a Christian? I mean a true Christian! Because he has betrayed Israel. True Christians don’t betray God, and God’s chosen people. Read Isaiah. The whole book. It’s in the Bible in case ya weren’t aware.
Israel’s Channel 10 TV on Friday night quoted Israeli officials branding the American leak as “scandalous.” For Israel’s ally to be acting in this way was “unthinkable,” the officials were quoted as saying.
Ally? I’m sorry, but Obama is not Israel’s ally. The American people…well….a large number are, but Obama and his administration? If he was an ally to Israel, he wouldn’t be so buddy buddy with the Muslim Brotherhood, and all their offshoots, now would he!
A second TV report, on Israel’s Channel 2, said the leak “came directly from the White House,” and noted that “this is not the first time” that the administration has compromised Israel by leaking information on such Israeli Air Force raids on Syrian targets.
When you know that Obama is actually arming the enemies of the civilized world, you can be pretty damn sure that anything that harms Israel came straight from the top.
It said some previous leaks were believed to have come from the Pentagon, and that consideration had been given at one point to establishing a panel to investigate the sources.
Channel 2?s military analyst, Roni Daniel, said the Obama administration’s behavior in leaking the information was unfathomable.
Well, there’s an understatement! If the leaks came from the Pentagon, they came from Obama. He is, after all, as he has told us on a regular basis, he is the ‘commander in chief’, and that’s HIS military.
A piece of advice from me to the Israelis: Do NOT trust Barack Hussein Obama, or anyone in his administration!!
When will someone be held accountable? We knew this was a terrorist attack! WE knew. The feckless bunch of Obama suck ups knew. CLINTON KNEW! They didn’t do a damn thing! They could have increased the security. They could have moved out the people in that compound. THEY KNEW WHAT WAS COMING AND DID NOTHING!!
Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton have blood on their hands!
On Drudge today, we see….
Well, okie dokie! All the BS that Obama spewed SHOULD be biting him on the hind end, but with the bubble wrap also known as the media, and his staff, either he’s totally clueless, or really doesn’t give a damn about the consequences of his actions. Or…. maybe both?
The links for the screen shot:
But the cancellation notices, which began arriving in August, have shocked many consumers in light of President Barack Obama’s promise that people could keep their plans if they liked them.
KATHLEEN SEBELIUS, HHS SECRETARY: I have created an account on the site. I have not tried signing up because I have insurance.
GUPTA: Did you find it challenging? What did you think of it?
SEBELIUS: Well, I think there certainly are some challenges. It could be smoother. It could be easier to access. And that’s really what we’re working on.
The White House kept close tabs on the creation of the online exchange, with particular attention to the Web site’s design, but managing the details of the software development was left to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which Ms. Sebelius oversees. She testified on Capitol Hill this spring that the exchanges were “on track” to open on Oct. 1, but those close to her say she has been far more immersed in developing policy related to the health care law, and in traveling the country to promote it, than in its technical aspects.
“It’s screwed up,” Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.) said, summing up the whole situation.
House Speaker John A. Boehner predicted Wednesday that by the end of the month, more Americans will have lost their insurance by being kicked off existing health plans than the number who were able to sign up in the flawed online healthcare.gov website.
And the early numbers may back him up.
The insurance executives are meeting with Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett and chief of staff Denis McDonough, the sources told POLITICO on Tuesday evening. The White House didn’t immediately confirm the meeting.
The video illustrates Obama’s eagerness and ability to convert even the most awkward policy setbacks into high-profile political campaigns that can help his progressive coalition. The money may be used to support Obamacare, but it likely will also be used to help Obama wage his next election campaign — the 2014 midterm election.
In the video, Obama also offers his supporters a psychological reward for joining “Team Obamacare.”
Isn’t it past time for Obama to admit he screwed up? The government hired a foreign company that was FIRED by their own Canadian government for incompetence. Leave up to our feckless administration to find losers from a different country, paying…what is it…a half billion dollars…to create a website. We have so many brilliant tech folks right here in THIS country, but no…they can’t hire Americans to do the job, for less money! That would be absurd!
Let’s face a very real problem! The federal government can’t run ANYTHING efficiently! Why, for the love of all that’s holy, would we trust them with our health care, our jobs, our children, our borders, etc. Jumpin’ Jehoshaphat! Reality snap here people! Barack Hussein Obama is the LAST person I would let make decisions about ANYTHING to do with the economy, that biggest drain being Obamacare, AND the damn ‘you owe me’ programs, aka food stamps, welfare, medicaid, medicare, etc. If you’ve paid into something your entire life, yeah, you should be getting a large chunk back.
It’s time for the country to grow up and be responsible for their own well being. It’s also time for Congress, and the administration, to start behaving like adults and stop being petulant children. Do they run their own households the way they run the economy? I sure as hell hope not! Then again, the Obama’s have never really had to be grown ups, soooo…. Well, maybe it’s time they learn, too! If the government, at every level, was a private business, they’d have been out of business a LONG time ago! So, why do we keep electing the same jackwagons that have screwed everything up? BOTH sides suck, it’s just that one side sucks more than the other!
Fix it! Stop voting for the morons who can’t figure out how to balance a checkbook! 90% of Congress needs to be kicked to the curb! If those we elect are incapable of following the U.S. Constitution, which lays out their limited obligations, then why the blazes should we return them, over and over again, to the office so they can royally screw US over?
Obama’s Priorities vs. the Economy
Amy Payne – The Foundry
Now that the government is whirring again, President Obama has identified three priorities for the country. Here’s a quick look at how they stack up against your priorities.
“There is a lot of work ahead of us, including our need to earn back the trust of the American people that has been lost over the last few weeks,” Obama said. “And we can begin to do that by addressing the real issues that they care about.”
During a weekend of protests in Washington, D.C., a number of veterans stood up to a vindictive federal government by removing barricades erected around outdoor war memorials. These heroes transported the iron obstacles to the White House in a show of defiance against an administration that dismisses and devalues their worldview.
When the rallies and marches were over, National Park Service employees worked feverishly Monday to reinstall the barricades, making sure no other visitors get to see the monuments.
Low life, scum sucking, son of a bitch!! I am not going to even attempt to be a lady! I could call him even worse, but I am to damn angry right now, to put it mildly!
Via The Bunker.
Whether you’re curious or not, there are several reasons I haven’t been posting much, even though there is a great deal to post about these days. The personal reasons, I’ll keep to myself for the moment. The political? You really don’t want to read a post laced with ‘colorful metaphors’ as Captain Kirk called them. My anger increases with every revolting action of this administration and the phallic adoring Democrats. The most recent I’ve seen? Shutting down Amber alerts! How many children will be lost due to Obama’s arrogance!?!
Right now, I’m going to have to concentrate on personal issues. Barack Hussein Obama, and every single Democrat POS can burn in hell worshiping their evil master.
Sure, it was all about the video the administration kept pushing on the country, the families, and the world. Just a few folks out for a stroll that decided to riot as Clinton spouted in front of Congress. But really, what difference does it make?
I’ll tell you what difference it makes! The fact that the administration lied, Clinton lied, they all freakin’ lied, and this was a coordinated attack on an American facility that had no where near the security it NEEDED in a country full of crazy people make it matter, BIG TIME! No, this is NOT going away. The evening strollers have a boatload of OUR weapons and equipment in their hands, and NO ONE is being held responsible!
The media has interviewed one of the sons of bitches who is responsible for the murder of four Americans, and the wounding of many others, but our government can’t find them? Excuse me, but are you people totally incompetent, or is it that perhaps YOU are behind the attack! Maybe both?
This administration is actually ARMING TERRORISTS in Syria! IF he had made the attempt to help those who were really the rebels 2 years ago, I might give him a pass, however, that’s not the case. The clown in chief is actually arming al Qaeda affiliated jihadists. You know the type…they flew planes into our buildings and a field in Pennsylvania and murdered nearly three thousand innocent human beings!
Now, the jackwagon has authorized the signing of the Useless, and dangerous, Numnuts’ “Arms Treaty“? He claims to have taught Constitutional law, yet knows nothing about the Constitution. He can only authorize the signing of a treaty with 2/3′s approval of the U.S. Senate!
It is sad when a citizen knows that the government is dangerous, not only to the country, but to many others around the world. It is sad when a once great nation has become a laughing stock because of the feckless government. If there were any testosterone in D.C., this would never have happened. A traitor to a nation should be removed from office, yet our Congress allows these actions to continue. We have a few lone voices speaking out for The People, and the rest sitting on their thumbs, playing poker on their iPhones. Isn’t it a little bassackwards that the lone voices are the ones being mocked by the thumb twiddlers?
I love my country. I am ashamed of my government!
(My 2 cents below video.)
As much outrage as many Americans felt when Obama proclaimed, “We are no longer a Christian nation!”, I fear he just might be right. If we were a Christian nation, wouldn’t we be standing by while our brothers and sisters in faith were being targeted? The destruction of Christian churches, homes, businesses is wide spread, yet the media is largely silent, and one brief mention, out of necessity I suppose, by the President of the United States brings shame on ALL of us.
I wonder how many churches in the U.S. are taking time out to pray for the Copts? I wonder if many of them even know who the Copts are, or even care? In case you are as ignorant of these people, as many appear to be, let me clue you in….the Copts ARE EGYPTIAN CHRISTIANS! Yes, they are Christians! Christianity was the majority faith in Egypt for several hundreds years, when the Muslims came crashing in, taking over. They remained the majority faith until about the mid 10th century. Today, there are only about 800,000 Copts left in a nation (Egypt) of approximately 82 million people.
One of the many things I find extremely disturbing is the support that Obama has shown for the Muslim Brotherhood, and his continued support of such murderous thugs. They are, first, and foremost, a terrorist organization, with an Islamic political agenda that, in NO way, is compatible with any form of democracy. Is there something lacking in this man’s character that he would prefer the slaughter of innocent men, women, and children, over a stable Egypt? Yes, honestly, I do believe there is something very wrong. He has shown a complete lack of character, and perhaps, is without a soul. If he was capable of rational thought, if he was as intelligent as so many believe him to be, then he would be very aware of the history of the Muslim Brotherhood, and would do all in his, and our, power to make sure they never again darkened the door of ANY nation, but most especially Egypt, at this most volatile time.
In 2005, a former Kuwaiti Minister of Education, Dr. Ahmad al-Rabi’, wrote in the Saudi-owned Asharq al-awsat newspaper: “The beginnings of all the religious terrorism that we are witnessing today were int he Muslim Brotherhood’s ideology .. all those who worked with bin-Laden and al-Qaida went out under the mandate of the Muslim Brotherhood.” (source)
As a nation, we should be backing the Egyptian military in their quest to restore sanity in an area gone extremely mad. Instead, Barack Hussein Obama, contrary to recent White House spokesman statement to the contrary, has taken the side of the jihadists, as has Secretary of State, John Kerry, and the doddering senior Senator from Arizona, John McCain. The shame we should feel as a nation at these men’s actions is apparently lost. We no longer recognize shame as a legitimate deterrent to much of anything.
If the American President was not a prisoner to his own pro-Muslim Brotherhood agenda, the U.S. Administration would now be applauding the Egyptian military’s crackdown on the anti-Western, anti-Semitic and anti-Israel Muslim Brotherhood thugs who have instigated horrific violence in Cairo and throughout much of the country. (source)
No decent American, in all good conscience, can support the Obama regime’s support of the Muslim Brotherhood. They claim Morsi was democratically elected, however, no one can be ‘democratically elected’ unless ALL eligible voters are allowed to cast their vote for the candidate of their choice, and the Copts were not allowed to participate, through REAL voter intimidation. Threats of violence kept many would be voters away from the polls that assured a Morsi victory.
Does the name Alexander Tawss sound familiar? No? I’m not surprised. He’s the man who attempted to scare off a muslim mob with a shot fired into the air. It was a fatal mistake. Even though he did not fire at a person, but into the air, he was slaughtered…butchered like cattle. Why? Because he dared to try to save his neighborhood from the roaming bands of murderous thugs.
It is way past time for us to remember our Founders, and for what they stood. Our Judeo-Christian foundings are the enemy of Islam, and apparently, to our own president. WE must stand with the One True God, and cease to placate the followers of evil.
I stand with my brothers and sisters in Christ, in Egypt, and around the world. I stand with Israel. I do NOT stand with pedophile worshiping murderers, nor do I stand with their “American” mouthpiece, Obama.
