Obama, Kerry, and the UN’s 6 Principles of Ultimate Hypocrisy

Two State Solution.jpeg

So how do we know that Obama, Kerry, and the UN’s position and resolutions against Israel is biased, hateful, and Anti-Semitic? 


Let’s briefly look at the 6 ludicrous principles–as applied to the United States and it’s settling the land of the Native American Indians. 


Principle 1: Recognized International Borders for 2 People  


– For the United States that would be recognized international borders for the Native American Indians and for the the United States agreed to by both sides.


Principle 2: Two States for Two Peoples


– That would be a West America for Native American Indians and an East America for the United States (see graphic above).


Principle 3: Realistic Solution for Refugees


– The realistic solution would not involve a return of the Native American Indians to East America, but would involve compensation. 


Hmm, how much do we realistically owe the Native American Indians for half the country? 


Principle 4: Washington DC as Capital for 2 States


– That would look something like this with a West Washington D.C. as capital for Native American Indians and an East Washington D.C. as capital for the United States.

Principle 5: Satisfy U.S. Security Needs

– This would involve “innovative approaches to creating unprecedented, multi-layered border security.”  

Uh, what does that mean, especially with our estimated 11.4 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. already???

Principle 6: Normalized Relations

– For the U.S., “this must bring broader peace” with South American neighbors (including Mexico, Cuba, Venezuela, etc.) and would allow “groundbreaking” security partnerships with others like Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea. 

Wonder how that would all work out, huh???

The main difference between the U.S. and Israel is that actually Jews were promised the land of Israel by G-d him/herself and the Jews have actually lived and worshipped there for 4,000 years!

If Obama, Kerry, and the United Nations want to lecture on a Two State Only Solution, perhaps they need to start by contacting the Native American Indians and getting out their drawing boards. 😉

Temper Tantrums Don’t Make Peace

Force.jpeg

The latest salvos of U.S. anger, frustration, and temper tantrums are not helpful to achieving peace in the world. 


We are not dealing with children and should not treat foreign countries and leaders “with disdain and disrespect” or with bias, hate, and underling anti-Semitism. 


Nor should we get on our soapbox high and mighty and “lecture” others, especially when we ourselves have been grossly deficient and derelict. 


Over the last 8 years:


We let 500,000 Syrians be massacred, including the very rebels that we were supposedly supporting, and allowed many to be killed with prohibited chemical weapons (violating our definitive “red line”)!


We let Ukraine be attacked and Crimea be stolen!


We let Russian nuclear-capable weapons be stationed on the border of NATO.


We let millions of refugees stream across the Middle East and world homeless and helpless. 


We let the world’s #1 sponsor of terrorism, Iran, become a licensed nuclear power, extend their Caliphate across Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Yemen–while swarming and buzzing our ships and taking our sailors hostage and humiliating them. 


We let North Korea advance it’s nuclear and ballistic missile programs.


We let China build and militarize the South China Sea and threaten freedom of navigation of the seas, and let them steal our drone in International waters. 


We let our ambassador to Libya and his associates be murdered.


We let the President of the Philippines call our President a “son of a whore.”


We let ISIS rampage and murder across the globe in countless terror attacks, while we called them “workplace violence” and traffic accidents.


We let divisiveness seep into and poison our own cities, communities, people, and even against law enforcement, and politicized everything stagnating our our country and making us fall further behind in the world from education to life expectancy. 


We abandoned those seeking democracy, freedom, and human rights from the Green Revolution in Iran to the Arab Spring across the Middle East. 


And the list goes shamefully on and on.


But what’s possibly even worse is that while we failed the world over, we are arrogant and nasty to others betraying our friend and allies in one-sided resolutions that ignore the scrounge of terrorism, deadly attacks, Anti-Semitism as well as with horrible deals with Iran that threaten their very existence. 


While we continue to sit in America, on land forcibly and violently taken from the Native American Indians, having brutally enslaved for hundreds of years African Americans, abused women and treated them as lessor in role, voting, and dignity, interned Japanese Americans and twice dropped the Atom Bomb on civilian cities, what right do we have to lecture anyone?


Yes, we dole out billions to nations around the world, for what we want whether in terms of allies, voting blocks, military cooperation, intelligence, or because of religious convictions, but that does not give us the right to arrogantly and bulling tell others or try to force them how to live in their neighborhoods and with the threats facing their people. 


While we did nothing, we spoke a great deal trying in vain to force our will on others, and the failures that abound are a reflection of just that leadership from behind, hypocrisy, and hubris. 😉

Democracy Built On More Than Hoya

There is a funny joke that is timely for election season, and it goes something like this…

“It was election time and the politician decided to go out to the local reservation and try to get the Native American vote.

They were all assembled in the Council Hall to hear the speech.

The politician had worked up to his finale, and the crowd was getting more and more excited.

‘I promise better education opportunities for Native Americans!’ The crowd went wild, shouting ‘Hoya! Hoya!’.

The  politician was a bit puzzled by the native word, but was encouraged by their enthusiasm. ‘I promise gambling reforms to allow a Casino on the Reservation!’  ‘Hoya! Hoya!’ cried the crowd, stomping their feet.

‘I promise more social reforms and job opportunities for Native Americans!’ The crowd reached a frenzied pitch shouting ‘Hoya!  Hoya!  Hoya!’

After the speech, the Politician was touring the Reservation, and saw a tremendous herd of cattle. Since he was raised on a ranch, and knew a bit about cattle, he asked the Chief if he could get closer to take a look at the cattle.

‘Sure,’ the Chief said, ‘but be careful not to step in the hoya.'”  🙂

So when candidates get on their soapboxes and promises are being made on the left and on the right, you can only but wonder what is a promise that is sincere and will be kept and what is a promise that is for garnering votes and will be ignored.

When the mic is unknowingly on and you hear something you weren’t meant to hear, it is hard not to wonder about true intentions.

The New York Times calls these “moments of political candor,” while the Wall Street Journal (30 March 2012) calls it “moment[s] of political contempt.”

The Journal asks why we would not be told the truth about intentions with the implication that it is something that the candidates do not want us to know or that we would not approve of.

Who are these candidates really? Does anyone really know when words are but bargaining chips for winning elections, rather than true commitments of the heart.

It is scary, when the truth is obscured by empty words that change with the audience, and then votes end up based on false promises, vagaries, and disappointments.

When it comes to elections–Is the truth out there? Does it exist?

People deserve candor, sincerity, and to know where candidates really stand on the issues, so they can vote for what and whom they really believe in.

Democracy is built on more than rolling hills and valleys filled with hoya–the truth is it’s foundation.
