“Useful Infidels” Vetting Refugees

During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.” - George Orwell

When truth has been replaced with moral relativism and progressivism teaches our American children through high school programs such as the International Baccalaureate and Common Core standards that they are global citizens, love of one’s country is bad, proselytizing for Islam in school curricula at the expense of Christianity is good, and socialism and the Islamization of Western civilization have become the norm, it is time to worry. America is “harboring in New York its own worst enemy,” and financing it with taxpayer dollars. It is time to stand up to the U.N. and its forced globalization programs, including the “refugee” relocation.

Two-state, not three state, solution occurred in 1948

Soon to be sidelined Secretary of State John Kerry wasted an hour and a half reinventing history December 28 after the Obama administration’s ambassador to the United Nations disgraced America by abstaining at the security council’s vote on Friday. His moronic remarks aren’t even worth referencing as he attempted to bolster an irredeemable action that endangered Israel’s very existence by pressuring the small state to return to indefensible borders.

Luckily, this is just another paper tiger U.N. resolution, one of numerous anti-Israel actions over the last 50 years (which makes one wonder why the august body ever recognized the Jewish state to begin with—but we’ll get to that). What is mind boggling is how the United States could allow itself to be sucked into sponsoring Hamas’ terrorism by refusing to support our ally, bringing to mind the old adage—With friends like this, who needs enemies?

BID UNITED NATIONS GOODBYE AND GOOD RIDDANCE

In the wake of the controversial United Nations Security Council resolution calling for an end to Israeli settlements in the West Bank, the incoming Trump administration should seriously consider ending our annual bailout of this corrupt institution.

The resolution succeeded because the United States abstained from voting. This marked the first Security Council resolution to pass since 1979 that condemned Israel for their settlement policies. The United States abstention was met with a furious response from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who said that President Obama “colluded” with other nations to pass the “shameful” resolution.

Biblical Prophecy Exposes the “Two State Solution” as Absolute Nonsense

It is hard to imagine a body of anti-Semites sitting in a nation that is allied to Israel working so hard to destroy that sovereign nation. But this is the UN, an innocuous group of one world thinkers, supported largely by the United States taxpayer, who ignore scripture, are void of all prophetic knowledge and the plan God has for his very special people—the Jews.

When the British met the Minutemen at Lexington it made history in what has been coined “The shot heard round the world.” Not since then has there been anything like it—but wait—now there’s Obama’s parting shot against the nation of Israel, our strongest Middle Eastern ally.

An Open Letter To America And Her New President

Years ago in a Wal-Mart, I was walking past the toy department. A screaming four year-old was demanding that his mom buy him the little car set he had opened and scattered all over the floor. After the young mother had several times declined and asked him to come along with her, the boy threw one of the toys at her, leaving a cut on her forehead.

The rattled mom stood there and began slowly counting as some parents do before administering discipline. After she got to ‘five’, the kid stomped his foot and threw another car nearly hitting another shopper. The boy’s face was purple now. Mom started over with ‘one,’ and began counting again. A crowd had gathered, and a manager was looking at the mess in disbelief. The mother smiled at the boy, held out her hand and again pleaded with him to come with her. And what happened next is one reason why my wife never takes me anywhere with her.

Obama’s Treachery Exposed

After watching all the pomp and circumstance of the presidential inauguration of January 20, 2009, I remember turning to my husband Steve and saying: “The sole mission of Barack Obama and his henchmen is to destroy Israel.”

Steve reminded me that there was a mountain of domestic issues awaiting the new, far-left regime, and I agreed. And sure enough, Mr. Obama and his minions proceeded to wreak havoc on job creation and on the American military, inflict strangulating regulations, amass crushing national debt, foist horrific healthcare and education systems on our citizens, and seed every government department with operatives from the Nazi-inspired terrorist organization Muslim Brotherhood, and then hand over control of the Internet to the United Nations—the most corrupt, tin-pot-dictator-driven, anti-American, anti-Semitic, American-resource-draining cesspool in our country.

Obama’s “Evidence” Against Russia Falls Flat

The Democrats have been saying that there’s proof that the Russians hacked into Democratic Party computers for the purpose of obtaining and planting information that would help elect Donald J. Trump as president. But the proof wasn’t provided when President Obama issued an executive order and announced the expulsions of Russians from the U.S., and sanctions against Russian officials.

Deplorable Timing

You know…you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic—you name it. Hillary Clinton 9/9/16

“What then is time? If no one asks me, I know what it is. If I wish to explain it to him who asks, I do not know.”—Saint Augustine/Augustine of Hippo (354-430 AD) “The Confessions,” Book 11, Chapter 14

I was deplorable long before it was cool—ask anyone in my family and they will enthusiastically support my claim to early deplorableness. “Oh yeah, he was deplorable even as a kid!”

Failures of the UN “Talking Club”

President-elect Donald Trump tweeted the sad truth about the United Nations on the day after Christmas, saying it was “just a club for people to get together, talk and have a good time.”

Not long after the president-elect’s tweet appeared, the UN propaganda machine churned out a rebuttal, tweeting the following image listing its Pollyannaish version of its major accomplishments: (See Image Right)

Other than its valuable work in supporting and coordinating the delivery by aid workers of food, medical and other humanitarian supplies to areas of the world beset by natural disasters or conflict, the United Nations has failed, or has been largely irrelevant, in key areas for which it seeks to take credit. This article will focus on peacekeeping, poverty reduction, protection of human rights, help in alleviating the plight of refugees and migrants, and use of diplomacy to prevent conflict.

For example, the UN boasts about its peacekeeping missions, which it says keep peace on four continents. What the UN narrative leaves out is the cholera its peacekeepers brought to Haiti, killing nearly 10,000 people, for which the UN has very belatedly accepted some responsibility. The narrative also leaves out the continuing sexual abuse and exploitation scandal involving UN peacekeepers in the Central African Republic, which UN senior officials tried initially to cover up.

Obama settling old grudges—But not against Russian, Israeli leaders

The Hill

Is President Obama using his final weeks in office to settle personal grudges against Russia’s President Vladimir Putin and Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu? Obama certainly appears to be settling scores, slamming Russia for trying to meddle in the U.S. election, and abandoning Israel to the untender mercies of the United Nations Security Council.

But if you look past the administration narratives, Obama’s record suggests his animus has less to do with savaging Putin and Netanyahu than with sticking a thumb in the eye of the American electorate and its chosen winner, President-elect Donald Trump.

Obama and Kerry open door for Palestine Mandate Solution

US Secretary of State John Kerry – perhaps unwittingly – has now opened the door to reviving the solution contained in the 1922 League of Nations Mandate for Palestine – one homeland for the Jews and one homeland for the Arabs (“Palestine Mandate Solution”)

This solution has already been realised in 95% of the territory of the Mandate with the creation of the Arab State of Jordan in 1946 and the Jewish State of Israel in 1948.

Secretary Kerry’s suspension of disbelief

The term “suspension of disbelief” refers to well-intentioned subordination of documented-facts and common sense to one’s zeal and wishful-thinking: sacrificing long-term realism on the altar of oversimplification and short-term gratification and convenience.

Secretary Kerry’s December 28, 2016 speech was replete with suspension of disbelief, totally inconsistent with Middle East reality, but consistent with the Secretary’s 31-year foreign policy track record.

Obama and Israel, strike and counterstrike

UN Security Council Resolution 2334 was the first prong of outgoing US President Barack Obama’s lame duck campaign against Israel.

Secretary of State John Kerry’s speech on Wednesday was the second.

On January 15, stage 3 will commence in Paris. At France’s lame duck President Francois Hollande’s international conference, the foreign ministers of some fifty states are expected to adopt as their own the anti-Israel principles Kerry set forth in his speech.

Man of the Year: Chief Trump Strategist Stephen K. Bannon

--FrontPage Mag

TIME magazine named Donald Trump “Person of the Year” for 2016, and we could have done the same. But this would have been to over-simplify a victory that millions of Americans believe has brought this nation back from the brink of destruction, and has done so against what seemed impossible odds. In the just completed election campaign, a vicious partisan press substituted character assassination for reporting and joined malicious Democrats in demonizing Trump and his supporters as racists, sexists, Islamophobes, xenophobes and religious bigots, while dismissing the candidate as “unfit to sit in the White House.”

The top 5 stories of 2016, or… Why Democrat implosion is loads of fun

If this was a list of the most meaningful stories of the year, Donald Trump’s victory would obviously take the top spot. If it was a list of the most important stories of the year, we’d have to mention the continuing impotence of Obama’s foreign policy. Since it’s neither of those things, you won’t see those stories.

This is a list of the stories that made the political year so, so, fun. From Bernie to Meltdown, it paints a disastrous picture of abject Democrat failure.

Britain has about had it with Kerry’s nonsense

It’s hard to make Britain into some sort of hero here. They could have vetoed the Screw Israel resolution just as much as the U.S. could have. Not only did they not veto it, they voted for it.  Condemning anti-Netanyahu rhetoric after the fact does nothing to reverse that singular act of destruction. But maybe the Brits thought - however misguidedly - that the resolution would serve as some sort of nudge toward a peaceful solution, and they never had any interest in rhetorically piling on Netanyahu like Kerry decided to do on Wednesday.

Security Council Resolution 2334: The Legal Significance

On December 23, 2016, the UN Security Council adopted Resolution 2334 on the Jewish settlements, after the United States abstained from the vote and all other 14 members voted in favor. The Security Council resolution was the first to include such a firm condemnation of the Israeli government’s policy on the settlements since Resolution 465 in 1980.

A key motif in the resolution, as emphasized in paragraph 4, is the need to cease all activity concerning the settlements in order to salvage the two-state solution. The preamble to the resolution condemns “all measures aimed at altering the demographic composition, character and status of the Palestinian Territory occupied since 1967, including East Jerusalem” and expresses “grave concern that continuing Israeli settlement activities are dangerously imperilling the viability of the two-State solution based on the 1967 lines.” The resolution stipulates that measures should be taken “to reverse the negative trends on the ground which are steadily eroding the two-State solution and entrenching a one-State reality.” These statements, as well as the explanations given by Secretary Kerry and other American administration sources for the United States abstention in the vote, underscore the focus of the resolution on the effort to halt Israeli measures perceived as liable to thwart the implementation of a two-state solution. This refers primarily to construction outside the settlement blocs and Israeli legislative initiatives perceived as intended to change the legal status of the area, along with statements by senior members of the Israeli government members about the end of the two-state era. While the resolution expresses a double standard toward Israel on the part of the countries of the world, these measures by the Israeli government are probably what led to the resolution, on top of the poor relations between the Israeli government and the American administration.
