Hope vs. Change

Flag.jpeg

So we were promised hope and change, but what’s the difference?


Daniel Henninger in the Wall Street Journal says, “Hope is the helium -filled ballon of politics. Governing in office is the gravity that pulls it back down to earth.”


Many politicians are giving the false impression that “giving people the rhetoric of hope, lifting them with words, is more important than delivering results, which some might call change.”


Despair is when we are told that there is hope and promise, but we don’t get meaningful, impactful, and lasting positive change.


The hard work of leadership is not just providing a beautiful Garden of Eden vision for people to salivate over and to get their votes, but rather it is making something REAL happen that makes people’s lives and the world better. 


As they say is plain english, “Words are cheap!”


We don’t need any more fancy oratory skills–Hitler had those too and it led to the murderous genocidal Holocaust and disaster of World War II. 


Time for some elbow grease and some results that aren’t fake like the news we’ve been getting. 


We’ve heard too many lies, too much spin, and been subjected to language control of the “media echo chamber.”


Just one prominent example has been regarding terrorism and radical Islam which is not and never has been “workplace violence” and traffic accidents. 


Who is the President of the U.S. fooling when he says that theres been “no foreign-planned terror attacks in 8 years.”


Gee, ISIS and their numerous terror supporters seem to violently disagree about the many terrorist attacks we indeed did have on U.S. soil in the last 8-years, including Orlando, Garland, Fort Hood, San Bernardino, MinnesotaOhio University, and many more.  


It’s time that we stop being fed a bunch of false hope and political malarkey and instead we get some genuine change, improvement, and progress in our lives and the nation. 😉

Escalating Iranian Threat To World Peace

Iran is spreading it’s caliphate ambitions across the Middle from Iran to Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen and more. 



As the #1 world sponsor of terrorism and abuser of human rights, there is reason to be concerned and afraid of Iran’s intentions and actions. 



The ISIS terror and caliphate may end up paling in comparison to the threat of a dangerous fundamentalist Iran with emerging nukes, ballistic missiles, and a fearsome spreading caliphate of their own. 



Now Iran conveniently claims that radiological material, Iridium, was stolen, and where it ends up exploding no one yet knows, but we can guess the likely targets.



What wonderful plausible deniability for a suitcase WMD bomb horrifically placed and detonated by Iran, themselves. 



As Israel is burning, Aleppo is being flattened, Mosul fighting is raging street by street, and terrorists are plotting ever greater strikes into our heartlands, we are sitting here dumb and dumber. 



Please G-d, he will restore peace to our lands and people.



May He grant our leaders the wisdom to act as necessary, with due speed and agility to defeat our enemies whether ISIS or Iran and not be fooled by agreements not worth the ridiculous paper they are written on.

You Can Take This Niqab And…

feminism-jpeg

So here is the quote of the day (compliments of the Wall Street Journal)…


From a woman fleeing the inhumane treatment in Mosul by ISIS religious terrorists:

“I want to take this niqab and stuff it down the throat of ISIS.”


I’ve now read over and over again how one of the first things the women do, who get away from these ruthless fanatics, is to remove their confining “religious”-mandated garb that covers them so fully and put on normal clothes and be free human beings again.


While I certainly and highly respect women who freely and modestly cover up–especially in marriage–it is abhorrent to violently force women to dress a certain way or make them in any way lessor than or subservient to men. 


The women under ISIS are taught to be ashamed, when they have nothing to be ashamed about!


ISIS and these other radical Islamists that force their distorted version of religion on others goes like this when it comes to women:


“It is permitted to buy her, sell her, and give her away as a gift. They are just a possession and you can do whatever you want with them.”  In their FAQS, they even ask, “Can I have sex with a slave who hasn’t reached puberty?”


Yet, while they are having sex with abducted pubescent and pre-pubescent girls, they force women to stay at home, and they are not allowed to go out unless accompanied by a man (forget education, working, driving or traveling). 


Even at home, “Woman are cautioned to stay away from rooftops, balconies, and windows so they wouldn’t be seen by outsiders.”


And should a women be accused of sex outside of marriage–even when the women are the ones forcibly (gang) raped–they are the ones subject to death by public stoning for their being licentious. 


Are these “religious” fanatics with guns so weak that they fear sexual temptation more than they trust in the bonds of family, personal righteousness, and the ability of people to freely choose right from wrong?


Imagine…as they abduct and enslave women and children, rape them, sell them, and force them into bogus marriages, starve and torture them, these people actually think they are religious. 😉

Telling The Next Guy

Boxing.jpeg

This was one for the books today.


Obama tells Trump that he needs to stand up to Putin (i.e. don’t wimp out)!

Uh, who’s the guy who has been in office the last 8 years? 


An during those years, our standing and national security has suffered from disengagement and utter weakness at virtually every turn of the globe. 


– We let red lines be violated in Syria and watched our Ambassador murdered in Libya


– Russia expanded into Georgia, Ukraine, and Syria, and now it’s looking to Cuba and Vietnam.


– China has been rapidly militarizing into the South China Sea and expanding it’s economic influence in Africa.


– We made the “worst deal in history” in Iran that allows them to eventually go nuclear!


North Korea continues to expand it’s nuclear arsenal and ballistic missile technology. 


– The Philippines told the President to “go to h*ll” and threatens to break from the U.S. militarily. 


– U.S. backed off support for democracy in Egypt after the military coup that overthrew Morsi


Venezuela expelled our top diplomat and 2 other embassy officials ratcheting up hostilities with the U.S. 


Cyberattacks have plagued the U.S. and we haven’t been able to defend ourselves. 


ISIS has demonstrated success and our strategy has not made them less dangerous and lethal. 


– After years of mounting terrorism, our leaders still refuse to even say the words, “radical Islam.”


I’m not sure why people are so tempted to give advice and preach to others, when they themselves have so many failings. 


I think it’s certainly okay to humbly share our experiences and lessons learned if we have any. 


But perhaps when you don’t have the best record on something, as they old saying goes, you should refrain from throwing large stones in your very fragile glass houses!

U-Haul Rental Truck Terrorism

u-haul

So true story…

This week I was walking in Downtown, D.C.

I see something strange, not usually there. 

There is a U-Haul van parked in front of the GW University School of Science and Engineering. 

Literally in front of the main doors.

A couple of it’s wheels are actually sloppily on the sidewalk and it is in front of a fire hydrant in front of the very doors to the school.

But that’s not all. 

All around the vehicle are oddly taped on posters as you see above. 

On some of the posters are antagonistic words about DOJ (the Department of Justice) and some even use the word “terrorist.”

Well, after the devastating terror attack in 1995 against the Oklahoma City Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building with a massive homemade bomb concealed in a rental truck that killed 168 people and wounded almost 700, I decided it’s probably a good idea to call the police. 

In the time that it took them to come, I was able to walk to the market place and to coffee…I know they are busy, but it seemed like forever. 

Finally, two patrol cars pull up…that’s good. 

I go outside to meet them. 

The officer after briefly looking around (and not in) the vehicle looks at me as I walk over to him. 

I said, “I called you about this suspicious vehicle.”

He goes sternly, “Well, what’s suspicious about it?”

I described the obvious…how it was parked with wheels on the sidewalk, at a fire hydrant, right in front of the main doors to the school, and with all those (crazy) posters all around it and uses the word “terrorist”.

Surprisingly to me, the officer responds, “That’s not suspicious!” Then he concedes, “but I will give it a ticket.”

He must’ve seen my face go into this contorted questioning look, but I thought the better of the situation and said with deference to him, “Well Sir, you’re the expert!”

I thank him for coming out and walk away feeling disheartened at this security response just 15 years after 9/11 and when we are still fighting a gruesome war with ISIS and against global terrorism. 

Then just a few days later, look at the article I came across with a homeland security warning:

“ISIS Guide: Rent a U-Haul As A Weapon, Target Thanksgiving Day Parade or Political Rallies.”

In the ISIS instructions, there is a picture of a U-Haul truck with the caption, “An Affordable Weapon” and the statement that “low security” gatherings “are fair game and more devastating to Crusader nations.”

With all due respect for our esteemed law enforcement, perhaps we need to take these terrorist warnings more seriously, and frankly even without the explicit warning, a suspicious U-Haul in downtown DC in front of a major university probably deserves more than just a parking ticket! 😉

To Evil ISIS

terrorism

I was thinking of holding this photo for “the next” big terrorist attack (G-d forbid). 


But it’s just two days before 9/11, and I thought of all the victims of ISIS terror and said, why wait.


So this is to memorialize all the victims of ISIS, Al-Qaeda, Hezbollah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Taliban, Boko Haram, the PLO, BDS, and other vile terrorist groups.


For all the victims–men, women, and children–you brutally and ruthlessly:


Beheaded.


Crucified.


Hung.


Shot.


Stabbed.


Stoned.


Threw off of Roofs.


Burned Alive.


Ran over with tanks and other vehicles. 


Poisoned. 


Abducted.


Raped.


Tortured.


Imprisoned. 


Enslaved. 


Sold.


Made refugees. 


Bombed. 


Gassed.


For the mothers and fathers you made childless.


For the children you made orphaned.


For the husbands and wives you left widowed. 

May the one G-d in heaven recompense you for all your evil deeds, may he thwart all your plans and attempts to harm, kill, and destroy, and may he thrust his heavenly spear of judgement through your devilish hearts and straight into the endless depths of Hell.

Antisocial Social Club

Anti-Social

 

This guy was hilarious.


Pink hat.


Big round white sunglasses.


And a shirt that says:


“Antisocial Social Club”


Truly, if he was anymore antagonistic to the norms of society, he’d probably be unloading an AK47 into an unsuspecting innocent crowd somewhere.


Okay, maybe that’s a little extreme, then again not really in this day and age of global terrorism where beheadings, suicide bombers, burning and stoning people alive, and child abductions and sex slaves are now the norms in certain outrageous societies. 


And if those are the norms in certain places, what in the world would be considered antisocial behavior there???


So a pink hat, big sunglasses, and an antisocial t-shirt in free America–that ain’t nothing anymore.


Antisocial with a big “Anti” now means death and apocalyptic destruction and global disorder.  


As to our weak politicians who can’t can stomach calling a mass phenomenon of psychotic antisocial personality disorder, antisocial–well you can judge what’s wrong with them for yourself. 


Why does it matter?


It matters only to those of you who have a moral compass to live by and who care about what normal even is–too bad our political elite are missing the substance of this. 😉

A Terrorism Wake-Up Call To Western Civilization

“On her way to work one morning

Down the path alongside the lake

A tender-hearted woman saw a poor half-frozen snake

His pretty colored skin had been all frosted with the dew

“Oh well,” she cried, “I’ll take you in and I’ll take care of you”

“Take me in oh tender woman

Take me in, for heaven’s sake

Take me in oh tender woman,” sighed the snake


She wrapped him up all cozy in a curvature of silk

And then laid him by the fireside with some honey and some milk 

Now she hurried home from work that night as soon as she arrived 

She found that pretty snake she’d taken in had been revived

“Take me in, oh tender woman 

Take me in, for heaven’s sake

Take me in oh tender woman,” sighed the snake


Now she clutched him to her bosom, “You’re so beautiful,” she cried

“But if I hadn’t brought you in by now you might have died”

Now she stroked his pretty skin and then she kissed and held him tight 

But instead of saying thanks, that snake gave her a vicious bite

“Take me in, oh tender woman 

Take me in, for heaven’s sake

Take me in oh tender woman,” sighed the snake


“I saved you,” cried that woman

“And you’ve bit me even, why?

You know your bite is poisonous and now I’m going to die”

“Oh shut up, silly woman,” said the reptile with a grin 

“You knew damn well I was a snake before you took me in 

“Take me in, oh tender woman 

Take me in, for heaven’s sake

Take me in oh tender woman,” sighed the snake”

Weakness Begets Terror

IMG_3488

A terror truck plows into crowds celebrating Bastille Day in Nice, France killing at least 84–many of which are children!


How many terror attacks do we have to undergo before someone wakes up and does something?


I watched Judge Jeanine express outrage on Fox News video about what is going on with radical Islamist terrorism across the globe.


Moreover, there is spiraling inner-city violence here at home with presumed racial killings of black people and the murder of 5 police officers in Dallas, Texas and more warnings about a Day of Rage in 36 cities today. 


Things are out of control!


OMG, the list of terrorist attacks just this year alone in 2016 is so long that wikipedia had to break them up into separate lists by month.


Some still can’t get up the courage or leadership skills to identify the enemy.


Moreover, they vow not to put boots on the ground


Instead, they prefer platitudes and implications that Western civilization is at fault rather than the murdering terrorists. 


Choosing disengagement, withdrawal, and appeasement over defending our national security. 


Just this week again, Iranian attack boats swarmed a U.S. battleship in International Waters that had our 4 star general in charge of U.S. Central Command, and we do nothing but lift sanctions on them, release $100+ billion, and encourage the opening of finance and trade with them as they continue to chant “Death to America.”


Russia and China continue to buzz our planes and ships and extend their boundaries into Crimea and the South China Sea, respectively, while North Korea tests ballistic nuke missiles that may soon be able to reach our shores. 


Moreover, instead of making things better, we are continuing to make them worse, with our own military warning against the change in policy to a stated “no-first-use” weapons policy in an age of dangerous nuclear proliferation and resurgent and modernized adversaries. 


After 9/11, we overreacted with almost 10-years of war, lashing out at enemies real and imagined, and now for the last years, we have become disengaged and withdrawn–either too afraid, unwilling, or ridiculously “political correct” to defend our own national security. 


The pendulum has swung wild and reckless for too many years…it is time for a normal and balanced course of action to protect our people and country–can anyone say radical Islamists? 😉

What Terror Attack?

Terror.jpeg

Haven’t we all heard it before…


Another terrorist attack, and there is an appeal for calm.


Radical Islam, no way…we can’t even say the words.


I’m sure we’ll hear the typical…that it was just a lone crazed gunman.


Forget that he avowed allegiance to ISIS.


And that he had previously been investigated by the FBI.


Also, that it is just 3 days since ISIS threatened to attack Florida.


We need the public to think there is stability and safety, especially right before the election.


DON’T ROCK THE POLITICAL BOAT!


The public is perceived as stupid.


Part of the echo chamber with the media. 


Feed them some crap about this being gun violence and attack the 2nd Amendment and call it a day.


The sheep will go back to their slumber and still vote for who the elites tell them to.


Over 50 DEAD.


Over another 50 wounded, many (or most) in CRITICAL CONDITION.


The WORST mass shooting in US history.


We’re tough on terrorism…keep repeating that.


Don’t flinch when the cameras are on you.


Make a remark that it’s because the enemy is angry about GITMO or Palestine or whatever.


In other words, it’s justified–we deserve it!


Close GITMO and resolve the Palestinian issue and all will be well in the world and there won’t be any more of this terrorist, murderous, violence against civilians, women, children, people at worship or at weddings or at funerals, or going to work in the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, or on a bus or train, or sitting in a cafe or pizzeria or club.


Let’s stop more sanctions and release more money to Iran, the world #1 sponsor of terrorism.  


Let’s leave Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, Yemen and more…all will be well.


Blood shed, treasure spent. 


Time to go home.


The enemy is not coming here.


Everyone rest assured. 


The unity rally after the attacks in Paris…we’re a no show. 


The attack in Tel Aviv last week…tell them to show some restraint. 


Orlando…forget about it, really–it’s over.


Let’s focus on the election now.


Tell them about glass ceilings and redistributing the wealth–they’ll eat that up.


Power, 4 years…maybe 8.


Citizens, sleep well…the Ambien is being carefully administered to each and every one.  Zzzzzz.  😉
