Obama’s Iran Promises: Security or Votes?

Jonathan S. Tobin "A month ago, Jeffrey Goldberg provoked a fair amount of scorn for proclaiming his belief that Barack Obama would “save Israel” from a nuclear Iran. But though Goldberg’s faith in the president’s willingness to use force to stop the Iranian nuclear program goes against everything we’ve learned about Obama in the last three years, Washington appears to be trying to sell the same bill of goods to the Israelis."

America's Global Leadership Is Ending "So the paradox is that while US military power retains global reach (it is working on supersonic cruise missiles, and long-range drones) its stewardship as world leader, as a generator of the next big idea, is gradually ending. There may come a time when international institutions are rebuilt to fill this vacuum. But that time is not yet. Until then, a new world disorder would be nearer the mark."

Occupy-Linked Group Releases Survival Guide For Violent Revolution; Look out Rose Parade, They're Coming!

Big Government ...."The 15 page document is available here via Scribd. The excerpt below is the foreword for the document. As website Zerohedge notes, one or two hacks of system critical financial institutions could easily produce widescale chaos, setting the stage for any number of significant events of this nature."
"Perhaps also of note, New York Times best selling author Michael Thomas was predicting violence on behalf of the Occupy movement in a December 26 opinion item at the Daily Beast, though there’s nothing to suggest the two developments are at all linked."

What's with those "Guy Fawkes" masks?

After appearing in internet forums, the mask was worn by participants in real-life protests and has become widespread internationally among groups protesting against politicians, banks and financial institutions, such as the "Occupy" protests.

"The mask portrays a white face with a subtle smile, a wide moustache upturned at both ends, and a thin vertical pointed beard. It is often accompanied by a black cape and a black conical hat."

ABC News: How Did Guy Fawkes Become a Symbol of Occupy Wall Street?

[Nov 5th] is Guy Fawkes Day. In Great Britain, Guy Fawkes Day — and its post-meridian counterpart, Bonfire Night — have been celebrated every Nov. 5 for centuries, since soon after Fawkes’ death in 1605.

"In the lead-up to today, a Guy Fawkes mask spawned by the 2006 movie “V for Vendetta”
has become the accessory of choice at Occupy Wall Street and similar protests around the world."

"So who was Guy Fawkes, and how did he become a symbol of protesters more than 400 years after his death?"

Occupy Pasadena Protesters Look to Ruin the Tournament of Roses New Years Day Parade

"There is a time and place for protests, the New Years Day Tournament of Roses Parade happens not to be one of them. I will say this, that if these fools mar this event in front of millions of onlookers, they will permanently seal their fate.
"How pathetic is it that cities have to pay more money by beefing up law enforcement to deal with these menaces? Pasadena police had to ramp up for Occupy the Rose Parade protesters. You know when police must ramp up for events, when there are terror concerns. You make the comparisons."

At least OWS won't need porta-potties. TW chooses neither to link to this protest site nor show their flyer, which you can see for yourself online. Consider this my personal protest against #OWS.

Ann Coulter: Only One Candidate Is Right On The Two Most Important Issues

Ann Coulter "In the upcoming presidential election, two issues are more important than any others: repealing Obamacare and halting illegal immigration. If we fail at either one, the country will be changed permanently."
"But capitulate on illegal immigration, and the entire country will have the electorate of California. There will be no turning back.
"Similarly, if Obamacare isn't repealed in the next few years, it never will be."
"That leaves us with Romney and Bachmann as the candidates with the strongest, most conservative positions on illegal immigration. As wonderful as Michele Bachmann is, 2012 isn't the year to be trying to make a congresswoman the first woman president."

Hamas Leader Haniyeh Agrees to Obama’s ’67 Border Plan – Says Goal Is Destruction of Israel

Gateway Pundit

"This month at a ceremony marking the 24th anniversary of the founding of Hamas, terror leader Ismail Haniyeh said that Hamas’ long-term “strategic” goal is the elimination of Israel… in stages."

Hamas leader: Goal is 'eliminating all of Israel'

Obama Issues Statement Praising Fake Holiday Concocted By A Violent Felon And Black Supremacist That Liberals Love To Pretend Is Real…

"Just because Kwanzaa was made up by a racist black nationalist who was convicted of torturing two women who were part of his group “United Slaves,” because he thought they were hiding nonexistent “crystals” of poison meant to kill him, doesn’t mean it’s not a legitimate holiday, right? Or how about the fact that actual Africans have never heard of Kwanzaa? I could go on and on but I’m preaching to the choir."

Statement by the President and First Lady on Kwanzaa —

A look at the history of "Kwanzaa"

"Kwanzaa practitioners of 30 years ago were dashiki-wearing "cultural nationalists" who sported huge Afros or bald heads and latched onto things African with a spiritual hunger. In a humorously candid admission in 1978, Karenga said he created Kwanzaa with such Afro-centric people in mind.

" "People think it's African. But it's not. I wanted to give black people a holiday of their own. So I came up with Kwanzaa...."


White liberals and black radicals: a match made in...well... "As Ann Coulter has pointed out in her inimitable, incisive way, the only people who pretend to take Kwanzaa seriously are white liberals."

...."Picture a young black couple coming home from Christmas shopping and opening the mail."
"Look, honey, Che and Courtney sent us a Kwanzaa card."

"What the heck is a Kwanzaa card?"

"I don't know. Maybe they've gotten into some kind of New Age thing. They're funny like that."

"Well, don't invite them to our Christmas party. They might feel out of place."

Victor Davis Hanson: Obama Derangement Syndrome?

Victor Davis Hanson "So how does one distinguish natural political opposition from a psychotic state? In other words, when will we know that popular opposition to Obama’s worldview and a dislike at the way he seeks to divide the country degenerate into the paranoid venom that was unleashed against Bush?

"Here are some things to watch on the national scene to warn us:"

1) Assassination Talk

Watch it when opposition to Obama evokes thoughts of assassination and is not countenanced by the conservative community. In other words, be on guard for the conservative equivalents of a Gabriel Range’s Death of a President — a docudrama imagining a hit on Barack Obama. Especially important is to note any positive reaction to such hatred, like a first-place award from the Toronto Film Festival.

In the Liberal-Conservative Debate, Where’s the Common Sense?

Barry Rubin ..."Only due to reforms, largely backed by Democratic presidents before most of us were born, was the balance corrected. The modern prosperity and progress of America has been due to a combination of Founding Fathers’ constitutionalism, largely free capitalism, and a government able to carry out reasonable levels of regulation.

Obama’s proposed solution:
The masses unite to control
the monster.

"A proof of that fact is that few conservatives sought to roll back all the pre-1952 innovations. And the same applies to such later initiatives as civil rights along racial and gender lines or the main and much needed environmental legislation following the discovery of just how much America’s water and air had deteriorated.
"Yet the governmental machine just kept going beyond the point of reasonable balance. More and more; further and further. The books of regulations grew and grew, strangling the society, trying to perfect ever-smaller faults at an ever-higher price. When was the turning point? The War on Poverty and Great Society of the 1960s? The ascension of Obama in 2009? The precise date isn’t so vital. What’s important is that things just went too far."

"And with Obama, the radicals-pretending-to-be-liberals took over."....

"So let’s be non-ideological serious people. Have the Department of Education, the Department of Energy, and all of the other bureaucrats and red-tape worked or not? Was the taxpayers’ money well-spent or thrown away? Are alleged good intentions and worthy causes just covers for sophisticated corruption and theft? Patriotism was once the last refuge of scoundrels. Today, that’s been replaced by claiming to save the environment, benefit the poor and downtrodden, and impose social justice through the redistribution of wealth (i.e., gimme!)." Emphasis added.

EXCLUSIVE from Big Government blog: Ron Paul in 2009–‘I Wouldn’t Risk American Lives’ to End the Holocaust
 Jeffrey Scott Shapiro ..."And so I asked Congressman Paul: if he were President of the United States during World War II, and as president he knew what we now know about the Holocaust, but the Third Reich presented no threat to the U.S., would he have sent American troops to Nazi Germany purely as a moral imperative to save the Jews?”

"And the Congressman answered:"
No, I wouldn’t. I wouldn’t risk American lives to do that. If someone wants to do that on their own because they want to do that, well, that’s fine, but I wouldn’t do that.”
"Paul then looked at me, and I politely thanked him for his time. He smiled at me again and nodded his head, and many of his young followers were also smiling, and nodding their heads in agreement. Clearly, I was the only one in the room who was disturbed by his response."

Most of the world would do as Paul might: not lift a finger to help the Jew. Roosevelt did not because he had a voting public that would not. But his own administration turned away a ship full of Jewish refugees fleeing Hitler, sending them back into a terrible fate when he could have saved them.

Even today, Arabs who invade Israeli homes and knife families to death in their sleep have outspoken defenders here in this country. And, I suggest they make up the Obama base.

But there are surely many others as well, though I can tell you first-hand that among those who many call "bible-thumpers" there is near unanimous support for defending Israel. TD

Video: Ron Paul Just May Be Lying About Those Old Newsletters ..."This is rather like Obama’s defense on the Jeremiah Wright problem, isn’t it? Except, that in Ron Paul’s case he’s claiming that he wasn’t the man in the pulpit, and didn’t listen to the words coming off his own pen. So it’s even less plausible than Obama’s take on Rev. Wright.

"How is Ron Paul different from any other politician caught in a trap? How is this defense materially different from Anthony Weiner’s “I wuz hacked!” defense? Ron Paul, the only man we’re told can save America, was either lying about the newsletters in 1995-96 when he promoted them, or he’s lying about them now because they’re a problem for his campaign. And if he’s lying about them now, then his best defense is that he incompetently managed a newsletter but now wants to manage the executive branch of the federal government.

Since we're discussing Ron Paul...

Video included: The man is a Truther, but he won’t admit it because he knows it would sink his presidential run. "Paul’s resilient strength in the polls is one of the more disturbing sidebars in the GOP primary. He has a few good ideas on economics, but in no way do those make up for his foreign policy. He discounts entirely the role that beliefs and ideologies play in our enemies’ thinking and ambitions. He constantly blames US foreign policy for 9-11, putting him in the same league as Ward Churchill and Rev. Jeremiah Wright, possibly even to the left of Dennis Kucinich. Paul is not even being honest about his true beliefs concerning 9-11, that moment of “glee” he describes above. Pay close attention to how he answered this question about 9-11 just a few weeks ago."

Paul is that guy in every car pool who, as he was expounding, the other riders would look sideways at each other and try to change the subject with something like, "so how'd them Cowboys do last Sunday?"

Byron York: 'Mischief' voters push Paul to front of GOP race "Given Paul's views on the Fed, the gold standard and social issues, not to mention his isolationist foreign policy, the polls have left some politicos wondering whether Republican voters have somehow swerved off the rails. But there's another question that should be asked first: Who are Ron Paul's supporters? Are they, in fact, Republicans?"....

" "Paul is doing the best job of getting those people who aren't really Republicans but say they're going to vote in the Republican primary," explains Smith. Among that group are libertarians, dissatisfied independents and Democrats who are "trying to throw a monkey wrench in the campaign by voting for someone who is more philosophically extreme," says Smith."

Tony Branco
Trust me, I didn't find this Paul cartoon by going through Google. The general thrust of Google is anti-conservative, -Republican. You can be sure of that when you search any political topic and, of course, this cartoon did not show up in a search of "ron paul cartoons".

Merry, er, happy holidays from the Obamas

Segregation in the Name of Diversity

Prof. Mike Adams at Townhall. "Unfortunately, the incident showed that having separate centers is not enough for some minority students. Some want to see racially segregated classrooms, too. Specifically, some diversophiles want to make sure that opponents of the African American Center are stuck teaching all-white classes. Telling black students not to take classes from professors who oppose African American Centers simply spreads segregation from the centers to the classroom. Why would black students want to punish a professor who says he wants more racial integration by ensuring he only teaches whites? This is a perversion of diversity. It’s perversity. It shows that the African American Center has been teaching racism, not eradicating it. And this is simply a disgrace to the entire university."

Mike Adams is a criminology professor at the University of North Carolina Wilmington and author of Feminists Say the Darndest Things: A Politically Incorrect Professor Confronts "Womyn" On Campus.

Problems are Caused by Racial Separatism, not Immigration "That is right, a Mexican racial supremacist group significantly comprised of illegal aliens has been systematically intimidating, harassing, and murdering Americans because they object to their culture, customs, and most important, their skin color; apparently, it is the wrong shade of brown. The progressives-invented stereotype of shoeless peasants escaping oppressive poverty to fill low-paying jobs picking crops, as restaurant workers, and as nannies is clearly propaganda."
