Mr. Obama’s disgraceful speech on the “Arab Spring” displayed incredible ignorance of the reality of Israel’s current situation, a view of middle eastern “history” completing devoid of factual truth, and a faith in Palestinian good will that defies rational explanation. In stark contrast to Mr. Obama, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to a joint session of Congress demonstrated true leadership and statesmanship by realistically assessing the history of Israel’s relationship with its Arab neighbors, the current situation in Israel, and Palestinian desires for genocide over anything vaguely resembling peace with a Jewish state in the Jewish homeland.
It is better to be silent and thought a fool than to buy a liberal bumper sticker and remove all doubt. I saw this bumper sticker on a car recently. It is an obvious reference to John Adam’s Wealth of Nations and the Invisible Hand. It is also typical of the simplistic thinking underlying the entire spectrum of liberalism. It should go without saying that it is also entirely wrong.
Earlier today, Mr. Obama visited Ground Zero in New York city for the first time since his inauguration, and met with a small group of family members of 9/11 victims. Fortunately for him, and despite the best efforts of his administration and Justice Department, his visit was not marred by an ongoing civilian criminal trial of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed or any other GITMO detainees. For the time being, Ground Zero is also not the sight of a mosque essentially in tribute to the 9/11 hijackers, but that could change.
“Marley was dead: to begin with. There is no doubt whatever about that. The register of his burial was signed by the clergyman, the clerk, the undertaker, and the chief mourner. Scrooge signed it. And Scrooge’s name was good upon ‘Change, for anything he chose to put his hand to. Old Marley was as dead as a door-nail.”
Congratulations to everyone involved with finding and eliminating bin Laden, from the brave men who went in and took him out to President Obama! Congratulations also go to President Bush and Vice President Cheney for instituting the programs and policies that helped provide the intelligence leads to find bin Laden.
bin Laden is dead:to begin with. There is no doubt whatever about that. The witness of his death are the Navy Seals and CIA operatives who killed him. It is their word that I believe and their word is all that I need! In other words, the Truthers can just crawl back into whatever holes they crawled out of!
