Buh Bye United Nations

It’s long past time for the country to break from the United Nations. Their performance and history has proven to be out of sync with the intent of its formation.

In that light, I’m please to share with you the thoughts of our new Dist 1 representative Matt Gaetz (R-FL). From his newsletter . . .

Withdraw from the UN

It is past time to get the U.S. out of the U.N. – and to get the U.N. out of the U.S. This week I joined Rep. Mike Rogers (R-AL) in proposing legislation to do just that. The U.N. has become an anti-US, anti-Israel organization. It cannot be trusted to inspire nations to peace or prosperity. I continue to support a restored American presence in the world through direct action and direct coalition building, led by our new president.

China Gives The Finger

A U.N. (Useless Nations) tribunal has ruled in favor of the Philippines in a case against Chinese claims to rights in the South China Sea. The Permanent Court of Arbitration said there was no evidence that China had historically exercised exclusive control over the waters or resources. And, true to form, China called the ruling “ill-founded” and says it will not be bound by it. See that middle finger?

As foreign relations and global security goes, where is President Obama on the stealing of the South China Sea by China? It’s a rhetorical question. He’s at the same place he was when Russia stole Crimea from Ukraine.

Looking back, the U.N. Permanent Court of Arbitration ruling from The Hague against China may become the most discernible symbol of the failure of President Barack Obama’s foreign policy. The U.N. ruled. China ignored. It is a pattern that leads to a weaker America, which is a feature not a bug of Obama’s foreign policy.

Because this move by China will have a major impact on the entire region, trade routes, air space, and common defense, this should be big news.  China is claiming all the surface and air space as their own, including lands owned by other countries in and around the South China Sea. And hardly a peep out of the media about it.

The shootings in Dallas and elsewhere consume all the media. To the exclusion of that, and to the exclusion of Hillary Clinton’s illegal activities surrounding her email handling. How lucky for them is that?

Who Would Lie To Save An Election?

After hearing the cacophony of Democrats in Washington over the Benghazi hearings, starring the person in charge, Sec. of State Hillary Clinton, a few facts are clear.

Setting the stage to not ignore history, the attack on the Consulate that ended in the deaths of our Ambassador and three other Americans, happened two months before the 2012 Presidential election.

Security conditions in Benghazi had been getting worse to the extent that the U.N. and other countries had left their Consulates because of it. The U.S.. Consulate was the only one that remained.

During that summer, the same U.S. Consulate was attacked. Also during the months preceding the September 11, 2012 attack, Ambassador Stevens had requested better security because of the escalation of terrorist attacks in Benghazi. The Arab Spring quickly turned into the Arab Winter.

Also during this same time, President Obama’s re-election campaign was in operation. During this time, President Obama was telling us that al-Qaeda was on the run. Remember VP Biden’s line? “Bin Laden is dead, GM is alive.” The meme, as echoed by the media, was that terrorism was in decline. When the truth was the opposite. They were on the run alright, but not from us, to us.

Today’s hearing revealed that Sec. Clinton knew on the night of the attack that it had nothing to do with a video. She said as much to the newly elected president of Egypt, Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohammed Morsi, the day after the attack. After all, through her Deputy Chief of Staff, Huma Abedin Weiner, the nearly familial relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood was there, for all to ignore.

Of 63 leaders who make up the Muslim Sisterhood – which is essentially nothing more than the female version of the Brotherhood – we learned that Huma’s mother, Saleha, was one of those leaders. Little attention has been paid to the other 62 leaders, however. One of them is Najla Ali Mahmoud, the wife of Mursi. Both are members of the Guidance Bureau, which proves fallacious, the claim that Najla is just an innocent and naïve spouse.

After the attack, what flows from the Obama administration and his State Department, is the lie about how the attack was attributed to a “disgusting video.” The lie was perpetuated at the United Nations, and continued through the election. With the help of the Obamamedia, nothing stuck to the two people responsible. Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton. The two of them went so far as to make a video of their own to perpetuate the lie broadcast to people in Pakistan.

The other thing that is clear is how right Elijah Cummings, D-MD, was when he said this hearing is political. That’s because the lies about the event under investigation were blatantly political. Which was, to keep the truth of his and Sec. Clinton’s agenda and campaign of deceit from the American people until at least after the election. Where four Americans under her purview were left with no protection and no rescue attempts made. After all, to quote Mrs. Clinton, “It is a subject that we are absolutely required to explore.”

Obama and Clinton lied. And four Americans died. And the lie lasted well past the November election. You bet it’s political, on their part. To save his re-election in 2012 and her election in 2016.

Iraq, Putting The Media In Its Place

While the media is preoccupied with changing history where the Iraq war is concerned, and, trying to blame G.W. Bush for the rise of ISIS instead of Obama, for losing everything the U.S. won under Bush, here’s a little refresher from ten years ago.

There Were Seven Reasons, Not One

  • Saddam Hussein’s Defiance of United Nations Resolutions
  • Saddam Hussein’s Development of Weapons of Mass Destruction
  • Saddam Hussein’s Repression of the Iraqi People
  • Saddam Hussein’s Support for International Terrorism
  • Saddam Hussein’s Refusal to Account for Gulf War Prisoners
  • Saddam Hussein’s Refusal to Return Stolen Property
  • Saddam Hussein’s Efforts to Circumvent Economic Sanctions

Also note that all the links in that post, the transcript, the audio, and the video of Bush making his case to the United Nations were to The White House website. After Obama took office, all those links to what happened in “our house” were scrubbed.

Here is a link to the transcript, where you can see for yourself, all seven reasons for going into Iraq. It was not, as the meme today portends, just WMDs. Also, know that Democrats voted to approve going into Iraq too. As did the United Nations.

And how timely a subject. Look at the other post in this link, If We Leave Now, They Will Follow

That President Obama lost the war that Bush won should come as no surprise. But you won’t hear that in today’s mainstream media. The meme today is, what else? Blame Bush.

Obama Fueling Nuclear Proliferation

Walking down Armageddon Road

It must be blatantly obvious to everyone, media excepted, that the Obama administration’s determination for an Iranian nuclear “deal” has nothing to do with whether it is a good deal.

Latest development, and this has to have the Iranian negotiators laughing themselves silly (oh, and our allies concerned) over the smoke and mirrors the administration is showing the American people by pretending that their negotiations are about to come to a fruitful end.

U.S. negotiators are said to have given up ground on demands that Iran be forced to disclose the full range of its nuclear activities at the outset of a nuclear deal, a concession experts say would gut the verification the Obama administration has vowed would stand as the crux of a deal with Iran.

This, after learning a few weeks ago about the existence of a covert underground and fortified nuclear enrichment site. Instead of walking away from talks with a dishonest and belligerent state, they continue to forge ahead with a “deal” that only insures nuclear proliferation in the one country responsible for supporting more terrorist attacks and organizations than any other in the world.

You have to question, who’s side is President Obama on?

For years, most people have assumed that Israel has nuclear weapons or nuclear weapon capability. But neither Israel nor the United States have ever publicly confirmed it. Until now. The Obama administration has declassified, and published, documents going back to the 1980’s that confirm the existence of nuclear weapons capability in Israel.

Why would Obama do that? Two reasons, one of which I mentioned in this post . . .

Imagine watching your enemy and seeing your so-called ally meet up to strike a deal that threatens your very existence. It’s no wonder Netanyahu did what he did. That isn’t showing disrespect for The One. That is sticking up for his country and exposing Obama for the fool in international relations that he is. That’s why he is so upset. And that’s why you can expect the petulant child to double-down and make the world less safe for our best ally in the Middle East, Israel, faster.

The other reason is to excuse Iran for wanting to have a nuclear weapons program, that they already (illegally) have. Now, with the help of our own president, Iran can say, “Israel has one, we feel threatened, so we must have one too.” “To maintain stability” they will argue. And Obama will say, yes, that seems reasonable. (Ignoring Iran’s continual call for the elimination of Israel.) It makes John Kerry’s job so much easier by letting Iran have the nukes they want.

And Obama’s legacy will be marred by mushroom clouds. God help us all.

Obama Caught In Sting

Well, calling it a ‘sting’ is a bit much. That implies that the meeting was arranged by a third party who, in this case, is Israel. From his reaction though, Obama must feel like he was.

What is being reported by the WSJ is that Israel somehow “spied” on the Iran/U.S. nuclear talks. To put it another way, Israel was using due diligence in the defense and security of their country.

Suffice it to say though, keeping an eye on your enemy (Iran) is just a prudent security practice. Especially when that enemy avows, on an almost daily basis, to wipe your country off the map.

Besides eavesdropping, Israel obtained information from confidential US briefings, informants and diplomatic contacts in Europe, the officials told the Journal.  It added that more than the espionage, what irked the White House was the fact that Israel shared inside information with American legislators in a bid to sap support for a deal intended to limit Iran’s nuclear program.

What really irked the administration is that they got caught conspiring with the enemy to cook up a deal that is in violation of current U.N. resolutions. A deal that paves the way for Iran to not only have sanctions lifted, but to give the OK for Iran to develop a nuclear weapon. To make matters even more bizarre, the administration took Iran and Hamas off of the list of terrorist organizations and regimes. No doubt to give the impression that they weren’t doing something absolutely idiotic by letting them have nukes.

That’s how desperate this administration is for a legacy building “deal.” It’s legacy building all right. In a bad way.

Imagine watching your enemy and seeing your so-called ally meet up  to strike a deal that threatens your very existence. It’s no wonder Netanyahu did what he did. That isn’t showing disrespect for The One. That is sticking up for his country and exposing Obama for the fool in international relations that he is. That’s why he is so upset. And that’s why you can expect the petulant child to double-down and make the world less safe for our best ally in the Middle East, Israel, faster.

The Peace Process Illusion

For more than four decades, Americans have waited for “peace in the Middle East.” The reason they’ve expected peace in the Middle East is because the U.N., politicians in Washington, and  the media have us all believing that there actually is a peace process going on. The unrest has been ongoing since the formation of Israel in 1947.

The truth of the matter is, and President Clinton proved the point, that the Islamist half of this phony peace process have more to gain by clubbing Israel from “the process” than they do in having peace. Peace that the Islamists do not want. They want peace without Israel.

In negotiations with Yasir Arafat, the chairman of the P.L.O, Clinton essentially called Arafat’s bluff. Clinton agreed to everything that he asked for. Instead of coming to an agreement and having peace, Arafat walked away and refused to agree to his own demands for peace with Israel.

The controlling political authority in the conflict, Hamas, still has the destruction and elimination of Israel in their charter. There is no way to negotiate that. That is why Netanyahu was right when he said there never would be a so-called two-state solution. Because the Palestinian side is the side that is demanding a one-state solution.

Netanyahu’s clarification was simply to say that he would be for a two-state solution if they had a negotiating partner, including Iran who supports and finances Hamas, that also wanted a two-state solution.  But they don’t. And President Obama has his head up his ass if he thinks peace can be achieved by negotiations when the Islamist side denies Israel’s right to exist. The media is just as irresponsible for giving the president a pass by keeping this story from being told.

The existence of Israel is not negotiable. The reason it is “hard to find a path” toward serious negotiations is not because of the lack of will from Israel. It is because of the lack of will on the part of the Palestinians and their shadow government (Iran) to recognize Israel as a legitimate State. And because of the naïveté of President Obama to pretend that they do.

Too bad President Obama doesn’t have what it takes to come to terms with that very basic fact. He is the one missing the opportunity to bring the parties together. And paling up with the enemy while chastising our ally, Israel, is not even “looking” for a path to realistic peace talks, let alone finding one. And until he does, there will never be peace, and always be a “process.”

Communist Environmentalist News

According to the United Nations (aka Useless Nations), the end is near, it’s our fault, and we’re all going to die. Well, only one thing there is certain.

From the AP:

Climate change is happening, it’s almost entirely man’s fault and limiting its impacts may require reducing greenhouse gas emissions to zero this century, the U.N.’s panel on climate science said Sunday.

Here’s the plan.

  1. Everyone who has anything to do with the United Nations and the IPCC must not exhale for the next 24 hours.
  2. Continue to monitor the weather and take up the matter again in 2214.

Liberal Blowtorch Burns Ring Of Fire

Mike PapantonioWas checking in to one of my favorite liberal, progressive, downright wacko websites, the Ring of Fire1, to see what they had to say about the IPCC (International Panel on Climate Change) report on climate change. Who according to them, is the world’s authority on the greenhouse effect.

I previewed the report in a comment on one of their posts a few days before its release. Where their scientists had to admit that there has been no global warming in the last seventeen years.

Harken back to 2007 when the global warming nuts were saying that the arctic ice would be gone by 2013. When in fact the arctic ice grew by 29%, over a half million square miles, in the last year.

But alas, not only is my comment gone, but all comments are gone (not that they had very many in the first place). In fact, they have disabled comments altogether. So now, the Ring of Fire has been reduced to a blow torch. No ring, no two-way. Like Obama himself, no negotiations. Just fun food for their lemmings.

On slow news days, the big lawyers post about big lawsuits against big pharma, big energy, and whoever else has big, deep pockets.

1 The Ring of Fire is a Liberal (they’ll say Progressive) talk radio show, co-hosted by Attorneys Mike Papantonio and Robert F. Kennedy Jr., and another lib named Sam Seder. The Ring of Fire is unique in terms of a talk radio show in that they don’t take calls live. Like Obama, they screen all questions emailed to them or left on their answering machine. Lord only knows what happens after that. Their show is scripted to pump out whatever liberal blather is on their page, regardless of what is going on in the news of the day. They really have a mis-named show. Not unlike Obamacare being called affordable. There is no ‘ring’ left in the Ring of Fire. They are unique in another way too, compared to ‘America’s Anchorman.’ They are not supported by advertisers. They don’t have a product anyone but other law firms want to be associated with. If they were ‘supported’ by advertisers, their show would have died when Air America Radio died, when its founder and Papantonio grew tired of personally footing the bill.
