NOVEMBER 11, 2023 -- A REMINDER OF THOSE WHO PAID THE ULTIMATE PRICE FOR OUR FREEDOM

Honoring our troops on Veterans Day …

Today, Veterans Day is dedicated to honoring military veterans, the brave men and women who have served in the armed forces. Understanding the meaning behind Veterans Day is essential to truly appreciate the sacrifices made by these heroes.

Let us come together to honor not only those who have fought in major conflicts but also those who have served in times of peace and to express our gratitude to the men and women who have donned the uniform, demonstrating unwavering dedication to their country.

It is more than a day of remembrance for the fallen; it is a time to reflect on the challenges faced by veterans after returning home, many veterans bearing physical and emotional scars and who struggle each and every day with their afflictions.

Let us also take a moment to consider the families who struggled during a soldier’s deployment, who have lost loved ones, and who fight to provide support each and every day. 

Let us remember that it was our senile Commander-in-Chief and the corrupt, politicized military leadership that gave us a resounding defeat in Afghanistan, leaving Americans and their allies behind as they cut and ran toward a photo-op. A surrender that even surpasses our defeat in Vietnam. What our soldiers won in battle, our politicians negotiated away. It is a bitch when an illegal alien receives more consideration and military benefits than our soldiers. 

Capture11-10-2010-8.06.22 PM

Lest we not forget …

Jane Fonda, American Traitor …

As we go about our daily tasks, let us for a moment consider the service of Senator John McCain, a prisoner of war who suffered terribly at the hands of our enemy while just mere miles away, a far-left liberal, Jane Fonda, laughed and sat on an anti-aircraft gun as she called our American troops “war criminals.”

Capture10-31-2008-10.44.40 AM

Aside from visiting villages, hospitals, schools, and factories, Fonda also posed for pictures in which she was shown applauding North Vietnamese anti-aircraft gunners, was photographed peering into the sights of an NVA anti-aircraft artillery launcher, and made ten propagandistic Tokyo Rose-like radio broadcasts in which she denounced American political and military
leaders as “war criminals.” She also spoke with eight American POWs at a carefully arranged “press conference,” POWs whom their North Vietnamese captors had tortured to force them to meet with Fonda, deny they had been tortured, and decry the American war effort. <Source>

And an accounting which is not complete …

For some as yet unexplained reason, John McCain approved legislation that has kept Americans from getting a complete accounting of our MIAs from Vietnam.

The legislation ensured that “… the Defense Department is not obligated to tell the public about prisoners believed alive in captivity and what efforts are being made to rescue them. It only has to notify the White House and the intelligence committees in the Senate and House. The committees are forbidden under law from releasing such information.” For those who wish to read an interesting article on McCain’s efforts to prevent a complete accounting of MIAs, it can be found in “The War Secrets Sen. John McCain Hides: Former POW Fights Public Access To POW/MIA Files.”

Bottom line …

Our nation and each citizen owe an unpayable debt to those who risk life and limb to protect our right to prosper or protest in complete freedom from a totalitarian government.

  • If you see a soldier in uniform, thank them for their service – especially since it is voluntary. If you see a veteran down on his luck, extend a helping hand.

  • Do not let our people and our government forget the sacrifice made by our troops.

  • Do not let those who would denigrate and demean our military go unchallenged.

  • Do not let the media spin a story that is contemptuous of those who protect our freedom without pointing out that it may have been the actions of relatively few individuals involved, and they do not represent the military.

And, no matter what the spin, you are not a private citizen exercising your “free speech rights” when you give aid and comfort to America’s enemies by making propaganda announcements -- you are a traitor.

Most of all, tell those in the far-left who are openly anti-military and anti-America where to step off. <insert strong language message here>

THE RETURN OF VICHY FRANCE

The French are notorious anti-Semites and famous for waving the white flag anytime someone says BOO!

MACRON

Macron calls on Israel to stop killing Gaza's women and babies

Israel must stop killing babies and women in Gaza, French President Emmanuel Macron has told the BBC.

In an exclusive interview at the Élysée Palace, he said there was "no justification" for the bombing, saying a ceasefire would benefit Israel.

While recognizing Israel's right to protect itself, "we do urge them to stop this bombing" in Gaza, he said.

But he also stressed that France "clearly condemns" the "terrorist" actions of Hamas.

France - like Israel, the US, the UK, and other Western nations - considers Hamas a terrorist organization. <Source>

What else would you expect him to say?

France has the largest population of Muslims in Western Europe, more than 5 million in a nation of 67 million, a legacy of its colonial domination of large swaths of Africa and the Middle East.

The Vichy regime was the French government which succeeded the Third Republic from July 1940 to August 1944. It was proclaimed by Marshal Philippe Pétain following the military defeat of France and the July 10 vote by the National Assembly to grant extraordinary powers to Pétain, who held the title of President of the Council.

The “French state,” (L’État Français) in contrast to the “French Republic,” willfully collaborated with Nazi Germany to a high degree: raids to capture Jews and other “undesirables” were organized by the French police not only in the northern zone - occupied by the German Wehrmacht - but also in the southern “free zone” which was occupied only after the Allies invaded North Africa in November 1942.

While Pétain collaborated with the Germans, Charles de Gaulle claimed to incarnate the legitimacy and the continuity of France. Following the liberation of France after Operation Overlord, de Gaulle proclaimed the Provisional Government of the French Republic (GPRF) in June 1944. The GPRF was recognized as the legitimate government of France by all the allies on October 23, 1944. <Source>

Bottom line…

Screw the French!

THE LOSS OF EDITORIAL FREE SPEECH AT THE WASHINGTON POST

Washington Post removes ‘racist’ cartoon depicting ‘grossly mischaracterized’ Hamas terrorist with women and children tied to his body.

Ramirez

The removal of a cartoon by famed editorial cartoonist Michael Ramirez was not only a blow to free speech but a proactive kiss to the Hamas propagandists who have come to rely on the progressive communist democrat media outlets like the New York Times, Washington Post, NBC, and others to actively embrace terrorist propaganda but to stifle legitimate dissent.

Washington Post deletes editorial cartoon criticized as racist

The Washington Post took down an editorial cartoon Wednesday that depicted a Hamas leader using civilians as human shields, after the drawing was criticized as racist and dehumanizing toward Palestinians.

Editor’s note: As editor of the opinion section, I am responsible for what appears in its pages and on its screens. The section depends on my judgment. A cartoon we published by Michael Ramirez on the war in Gaza, a cartoon whose publication I approved, was seen by many readers as racist. This was not my intent. I saw the drawing as a caricature of a specific individual, the Hamas spokesperson who celebrated the attacks on unarmed civilians in Israel.

However, the reaction to the image convinced me that I had missed something profound, and divisive, and I regret that. Our section is aimed at finding commonalities, understanding the bonds that hold us together, even in the darkest times.

[OCS: Obviously, the simpering wimp does not understand his job. It is not to finding comonalities, but to inform, entertain, and to provoke readers into thinking for themselves rather than just consuming pre-digested pablum. And, since when did abhorent child abuse bind anyone except depraved persons and pedophiles together?]

In this spirit, we have taken down the drawing. We are also publishing a selection of responses to the caricature. And we will continue to make the section home to a range of views and perspectives, including ones that challenge readers. This is the spirit of opinion journalism, to move imperfectly toward a constructive exchange of ideas at all possible speed, listening and learning along the way.David Shipley, Opinion Editor <Source>

[As long as you have good intentions, you can do something antithetical to what you say!]

Perhaps another editorial cartoonist says it best…

CHF

Bottom line…

The Washington Post, long known for its progressive communist democrat bias and its willingness to censor the news and cancel dissident opinions, is just another example of the radical left’s fascination with multiculturalism, moral equivalency, and anti-Israel, anti-Jew sentiment in Washington, D.C.

This media cowardice or, worse, intentional behavior is how we lose our nation.

We are so screwed.

THIRD 2024 GOP CIRCUS AUDITION

Gop-3-debate
Once again, the feckless Republican National Committee, under the direction of squish Ronna Romney McDaniel, turns the GOP debate hosting over to the progressive communist democrats at NBC “News.” And to give the appearance of fairness, it allows a “conservative,” Salem Radio Network’s Hugh Hewitt, to “join” the hosts, “NBC Nightly News” anchor Lester Holt and “Meet the Press” moderator Kristen Welker.

Five Republican presidential hopefuls, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, businessman Vivek Ramaswamy, Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina, and former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, will be fighting to give the appearance as a viable alternative to former President Donald Trump whose massive margin allows him to skip the debate. 

Truth be told, Smarmy Ramaswamy, blowhard Christie, and milquetoast nice guy Scott have no place on tonight’s debate if you can legitimately call it a debate.


Good production values and decent moderation with little crosstalk and a rather wooden Hugh Hewitt.

Nothing we haven’t heard before -- tough talk, promises that require Congressional majorities, and bickering.

  • DeSantis: service above self. 
  • Haley: it’s on Ramaswamy. The establishment candidate, George Bush in a dress. China-hawk despite her own record. Lies about DeSantis.
  • Ramaswamy: lecture, hector, attack -- I’m the smartest person in the room. Totally inauthentic.
  • Scott: I’m a nice guy and stand for American values.
  • Christie: Meh!

A message to the RNC...

T-t

Of course, if you want to keep your paycheck as an RNC advisor...  

Luntz

Bottom line…

While there is no doubt that the Democrats have a “Biden” problem, there is also no doubt that the Republicans have a “brand” problem. Agree or not, Democrats know what the party stands for and supports. In contrast, Republicans have no such understanding when it comes to the Republican Party, where everything is a finger-in-the-wind poll along with a fundraising pitch. 

After tonight’s debate, perhaps the debate hosting facility should be renamed the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Under-Performing Arts in Miami, Florida.

We are so screwed.

ANTONY BLINKEN: PUSSYFOOTING THROUGH THE TERRORIST TULIPS

BLINKEN

There is no doubt in my mind that the privileged, pampered elites, most of whom attended Ivy League schools, are a hotbed of corruption and anti-Semitism.

And it now appears they are throwing a temper tantrum because Israel is pursuing its goals to remove rocket-firing Hamas, an existential terrorist threat to Israeli men, women, and children.

Like government cowards the world over, their weapon of choice is the leaked anonymously sourced memo criticizing their own Administration’s policies. And, of course, the leak is to one of their favorite progressive communist democrat media outlets, Politico, which is said to be the distributor of the progressive’s daily talking points.

The reason these anti-Semites are upset is that Israel is ignoring their proffered wisdom as they pursue an Obama-led Biden State Department Iran appeasement effort to gin up one last photo-op regarding Iran’s nuclear ambitions. One, to secure Obama’s legacy and legitimize his Nobel Peace Prize, awarded without any peace process justification. And two, to bolster Biden’s dismantling of Trump’s wildly successful peace initiative, which brought peace to the region and ignored fruitless negotiations with Iran’s proxy terrorists in the region. Where Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and other nations realized that it was Iran, not Israel, that was the enemy.

Another leaked memo…

State Department staffers offered a blistering critique of the Biden administration’s handling of the Israel-Hamas war in a dissent memo obtained by POLITICO, arguing that, among other things, the U.S. should be willing to publicly criticize the Israelis.

The message suggests a growing loss of confidence among U.S. diplomats in President Joe Biden’s approach to the Middle East crisis. It reflects the sentiments of many U.S. diplomats, especially at mid-level and lower ranks, according to conversations with several department staffers as well as other reports. If such internal disagreements intensify, it could make it harder for the Biden administration to craft policy toward the region.

[OCS: Excuse me! Low- and mid-level staffers advise and execute the President’s wishes but do not make foreign policy. To the extent there are disagreements, it is incumbent for these staffers to follow directions or resign – at least stay quiet.]

The memo has two key requests: that the U.S. support a ceasefire, and that it balance its private and public messaging toward Israel, including airing criticisms of Israeli military tactics and treatment of Palestinians that the U.S. generally prefers to keep private.

[OCS: This is an abomination! Israel suffered a terrorist attack that resulted in the largest single loss of Jewish lives since the Holocaust. It was the terrorist group Hamas, with Iranian training and direction, that broke the previous low-level cease-fire, which ended on the day of the Hamas attack. Any ceasefire before the removal of Hamas fighters and their weapons is not a matter of discussion, as there is only one right side of history.

No amount of multiculturalism, moral equivalency, or diplomatic waffling can negate the fact that Israel suffered a 9/11-style attack. Israel had no comment as the U.S. killed, injured, and displaced tens of thousands of civilians as we fought terror in the Middle East. Likewise, the U.S. should support Israel and remove any government employee who supports a terrorist regime.

Considering the State Department’s cock-ups in Benghazi, Libya, Yemen, Iraq, Afghanistan, Ukraine, and elsewhere, the Department’s entire staff should be fired and the institution rebuilt.]

The gap between America’s private and public messaging “contributes to regional public perceptions that the United States is a biased and dishonest actor, which at best does not advance, and at worst harms, U.S. interests worldwide,” the document states.

[OCS: Are these simpering ass-wipes serious? There is only one side in the fight between good and evil. And the weakness and willingness to appease displayed by both the Obama and Biden administrations has harmed our allies and made us the laughingstock of the world. The U.S., by definition, is not a neutral arbiter or the policeman of the world as we pursue our own national interests.]

We must publicly criticize Israel’s violations of international norms such as failure to limit offensive operations to legitimate military targets,” the message also states. “When Israel supports settler violence and illegal land seizures or employs excessive use of force against Palestinians, we must communicate publicly that this goes against our American values so that Israel does not act with impunity.”

[OCS: I call bullshit! Israel’s military is the most moral fighting force on the face of the planet. It is Hamas that has violated all international norms, and civilian deaths caused by placing fighters and weapons in private homes, schools, hospitals, and Mosques is on Hamas, not Israel. Private homes, schools, hospitals, and Mosques become legitimate military targets when they engage Israeli forces or are used to store weapons. Building a hospital on top of a Hamas control facility is a war crime in and of itself.]

The memo is marked “sensitive but unclassified.” It’s not clear how many people signed it or if and when it was submitted to the Department’s Dissent Channel, where employees can voice policy disagreements. It’s also not clear if the document was revised in any way beyond the version obtained by POLITICO.

[OCS: This is what agitprop looks like, and those who leaked the memo need to be removed immediately.]

The memo obtained by POLITICO was authored by two midlevel staffers who have worked in the Middle East, said a department employee who has seen the document and was granted anonymity to discuss a sensitive topic.

[OCS: Why would the Department authorize anyone to discuss an internal memo anonymously?]

Blinken has been holding listening sessions with groups of staffers unhappy with the trajectory of U.S. policy in the last few weeks.

[OCS: Blinken is not a leader; he is a pussy who takes orders from his Obama handler.]

Meanwhile, Biden's official propagandist is trying to wrangle the Jews back into the coalition corral...

Wh-invite

For those of you who do not recognize the name, Neera Tanden, she is Biden's 23rd Director of the Domestic Policy Council. Tanden had a central role in the founding of John Podesta's Soros-funded propaganda mill, the Center for American Progress, and succeeded John Podesta as CAP's president and CEO. And was closely associated with progressive communist democrats like former President Clinton, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former President Obama, and people like Mike Donilon, Cedric Richmond, Anita Dunn, Gene Sperling, Mitch Landrieu, Keisha Lance Bottoms, Julie Rodriguez, John Podesta, and Stephen K. Benjamin. 

Bottom line…

The Obama and Biden Administration, along with the tough-talking pansies and snowflakes in the State Department, are destroying America from within. We need a regime change in 2024. Even the idea that a mentally-compromised corrupt racist and foreign agent can be considered for the Presidency should be abhorrent to every American.

We are so screwed.

TERRORIST-GREETING

I am shocked that a recent I&I/TIPP Poll, a reputable online survey of 1,400 adults (taken from Nov. 1-3, with a margin-of-error of +/- 2.7 percentage points) indicated that 20%, one in five, Democrats support Hamas over Israel.

The results include Democrats (54% Israel support, 20% Hamas support, 26% not sure), Republicans (71% Israel support, 7% Hamas support, 22% not sure), and independents (50% Israel support, 6% Hamas support, 44% not sure).

What does this say about our nation, our willingness to fight a well-defined evil, and if the progressive communist democrats are capable or even willing to protect the safety and security of the United States?

And it appears we cannot rely on the feckless GOP to deliver at the polls!

To say we are screwed is an understatement.

TERRORISM: IT'S HERE!

IM-CANDLE

How is it possible that in my quiet, upscale community, there was a clash between pro-Hamas protestors and pro-Israel protestors that resulted in the death of a 69-year-old Jewish man? 

Paul Kessler, 69, dies while counter-protesting at pro-Palestine rally in California

A 69-year-old Jewish man was killed in California on Monday after an altercation at protests over the Israel-Hamas war, with his death ruled a homicide and authorities not ruling out a hate crime. There are published reports that he was allegedly struck by a megaphone wielded by a pro-Palestinian supporter.  His local rabbi said: 'We DO NOT KNOW at this time if he fell, was pushed, or was attacked.

Paul Kessler was at the scene of two rival rallies held along Westlake Boulevard and Thousand Oaks Boulevard on Sunday: one was in support of Israel, and the other backing the Palestinian cause. Opposing protesters — pro-Israeli and pro-Palestinian — had taken a stand on either side of the intersection when an altercation occurred, authorities said.

On Tuesday November 7, 2023 at 10:00AM, the Ventura County Sheriff's Office will host a press conference regarding the recent death of a pro-Israeli protester, that occurred in the City of Thousand Oaks on 11/5/23.

Sheriff's report...

Narrative:

A 69-year-old man, identified as Paul Kessler, died as a result of injuries sustained during an altercation at a Pro-Israeli / Pro-Palestinian event, both of which were occurring simultaneously at the intersection of Westlake Blvd. and Thousand Oaks Blvd. The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the incident and has not ruled out the possibility of a hate crime.

On November 5, 2023, at approximately 3:20 PM, multiple citizens called the Ventura County Sheriff’s Communication Center to report a battery had occurred at the intersection of Westlake Boulevard and Thousand Oaks Boulevard in the City of Thousand Oaks. The intersection was the location of a Pro-Israeli / Pro-Palestinian demonstration.

Upon arrival, responding deputies located Kessler, who was suffering from a head injury. Witness accounts indicated that Kessler was involved in a physical altercation with counter-protestor(s). During the altercation, Kessler fell backwards and struck his head on the ground. Kessler was transported to an area hospital for advanced medical treatment. On November 6, 2023, Kessler succumbed to his injuries.

An autopsy was performed on November 6th and the Ventura County Medical Examiner’s Office determined the cause of death to be blunt force head injury and the manner of death homicide.

This is an active and ongoing investigation, and the incident appears to be isolated and not part of a large effort.

Bottom line…

So much for the possibility of a two-state solution if you cannot keep the peace on a street corner in California. 

Keep your head on a swivel and be aware that there may be terrorists or terrorist sympathizers in your neighborhood.

We are so screwed.

MANY A TRUTH IS TOLD IN JEST...

Once again, we find the anti-Semitic, pro-Hamas students of Columbia University hoist on their own petard.

Courtesy of Israeli television show Eretz Nehederet (‘wonderful country’). 

It should be noted that being LGBT+ in Gaza is a literal death for the crime of homosexuality. Curious that the “Queers for Palestine” would openly support Hamas that would kill them in a heartbeat.

Queers

The only way one can explain their seemingly contradictory actions is to remember we are dealing with “intersectional Marxists” who divide the world into aggressors and victims, colonialists and freedom fighters, and oppressors and the oppressed -- and the intersectional nature of the coalition demands that all victims be treated equally regardless of their hostility to one another.

Bottom line...

Stupid is as stupid does. And, in this case, stupid can get you killed. All thanks to a communist, anti-America, anti-White, anti-Semitic Barack Obama and his sidekick, the corrupt, racist Joe Biden, who is mentally and physically unfit to serve as the President of the United States -- and more so as the Commander-in-Chief of our nuclear military.

You dumb bastards, The terrorist’s words are in black and white: they want you dead, yet legacy mainstream media tried to gaslight Americans into thinking the poor Palestinians are being misconstrued.

We are so screwed.

OBAMA RESPONDS TO TERROR WITH MORAL EQUIVALENCE

Never-again

Why am I not surprised that former President Barack Hussein Obama seemingly condemns terrorism but refuses to take sides in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict?

There is no doubt in my mind that former President Obama, like his spiritual mentor Reverend Jeremiah Wright, is a communist who holds anti-America, anti-Israel, anti-White, and anti-Semitic views.

While rockets rained down on Israel, Obama and his administration continued to advocate for an impossible two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, with, unbelievably, Israel and Palestine living side by side in peace and security.

This is an impossibility given the governing charters of the terrorist groups Hamas and the Palestinian Authority, which demand the annihilation of Israel and the Jewish people.

Obama also expressed concerns about Israeli settlement construction in the “occupied” Palestinian territories, which were built on formerly Jewish land. His worldview was, as a non-interventionist and a peacemaker with the Muslim World, to allow Iran to be a nuclear state and “balance” Israel’s military power in the Middle East.

A flash transcript of a yet-to-be-released podcast on Pod Save America illustrates Obama’s moral equivalence.

If there’s any chance of us being able to act constructively to do something, it will require an admission of complexity and maintaining what on the surface may seem contradictory ideas that, that what Hamas did was horrific and there’s no justification for it. And what is also true is that the occupation and what’s happening to Palestinians is, is unbearable.

[OCS: There is no complexity between good and evil, right and wrong. There can be no moral or legal justification for the pre-planned butchery of innocent men, women, and children – especially babies and senior citizens, to make a political point. There is no Jewish occupation in Gaza or the West Bank, both self-governing and autonomous regions bordering Israel. When Palestinians speak of “occupation,” they are referring to the whole of Israel, which they consider illegitimate despite international recognition.] 

And what is also true is that there is a history of the Jewish people that may be dismissed unless your grandparents or your great grandparents or your uncle or your aunt tell you stories about the madness of anti-Semitism. And what is true is that there are people right now who are dying who have nothing to do with what Hamas did, and what is true, right?

[OCS: The truth that Obama refuses to acknowledge is simple: if Hamas and other terrorist groups would put down their arms, there would be peace. If Hamas did not use their own men, women, and children as human shields and place weapons in or near private homes, schools, hospitals, and Mosques, civilian deaths would be minimized. And, if the citizens of Gaza did not elect, support, and celebrate the corrupt and barbaric actions of Hamas, their lives would be immeasurably improved.]

I mean, we can go on for a while, and the problem with the social media and trying to TikTok activism and trying to debate this on that is you can’t speak the truth, you can pretend to speak the truth, you can speak one side of the truth. And in some cases, you can try to maintain your moral innocence, but that won’t solve the problem. And So if you want to solve the problem, then you have to take in the whole truth, and you then have to admit nobody’s hands are clean, that all of us are complicit to some degree.

[OCS: There is no “moral innocence,” only moral ignorance. There cannot be any debate between good and evil, right or wrong – there are some things, like the deliberate and wanton killing of civilians, that are not open to discussion or argument. “The problem” is not a problem once you realize that this is not a territorial dispute or a political dispute. The “whole truth” is that we are facing a clash between cultures, namely a tolerant but imperfect Western culture and an intolerant 12th-century culture based on barbarism where unbelievers are either dead or enslaved people.]

I look at this, and I think back; what could I have done during my presidency to move this forward? As hard as I tried, I’ve got the scars to prove it. But there’s a part of me that’s still saying, well, was there something else I could have done?

[OCS: While Obama’s administration did not provide direct support to Hamas, designated as a terrorist organization by several countries, including the United States and the European Union, they did provide humanitarian aid and funding for projects to the Palestinian people. Aid which was siphoned off and used to support continuing Hamas aggression rather than  promote peace and stability in the region.]

That’s the conversation we should be having, not just looking backwards but looking forward and, and that can’t happen if we are confining ourselves to our outrage.

[OCS: No! We must channel our collective outrage and destroy Hamas and its war machinery. We must eliminate the perpetual existential threat to Israel. We must not diminish or cease any action that leaves Hamas as a viable governor of Gaza. And we must hold those responsible for this atrocity accountable. If civilians are injured or killed, that is on Hamas, not Israel.]

I would rather see you out there talking to people, including people who you disagree with it. I, if you genuinely want to change this, then you’ve got to figure out how to speak to somebody on the other side and listen to them and understand what they are talking about and not, and not dismiss it, because you can’t save that child and without their help, not in this situation.

[OCS: We are beyond talk. It is time to take lethal action against those who are attempting to bring about a Jewish genocide.]

As Rick Moran notes, “But Barack Obama has no moral sense. There aren’t two sides equally at fault. One side is trying to eradicate an entire people. The other isn’t. This is a self-evident truth that one must deliberately try to ignore to see a ‘middle ground’ where none exists.” <Source>

Consider the dangers of moral equivalency for politicians refusing to take sides in the fight between good and evil.

  • When politicians refuse to condemn morally reprehensible actions, they fail to hold wrongdoers accountable, implicitly condone bad behavior, and create a sense of impunity where bad actors can thrive without fear of consequences. By refusing to denounce evil, they weaken people's faith in the democratic system, leading to disillusionment and apathy among citizens.

  • Moral equivalency can normalize and legitimize dangerous extremist ideologies by equating radical views with more moderate ones, encouraging extremist groups.

  • Taking a neutral or “nuanced” stance in the face of good versus evil can polarize society, deepen divisions, and erode social cohesion.

  • There is no doubt that the moral equivalency of the progressive communist democrats has dramatically damaged America’s reputation in the world. By failing to condemn evil actions abroad and back our allies fully, America has strained diplomatic relations and weakened alliances with our friends.
  • If the United States continues to cripple activities in Israel, it will undermine efforts to promote peace, human rights, and global stability, leading to more conflicts and unrest worldwide. 

Bottom line…

Moral equivalency by the progressive communist democrats will perpetuate intolerance and discrimination by equating discriminatory beliefs with inclusive ones. It sends a message that prejudiced attitudes are just as valid as accepting and inclusive ones, which curtails efforts to combat racism, sexism, homophobia, anti-Semitism, and other forms of discrimination.

Taking a stand against evil is not just a moral imperative but also a civic duty. In refusing to equivocate, politicians can empower their communities, inspire positive change, and build a future where good triumphs over evil.

When will someone hold Barack Obama accountable for all of the damage he has caused to our nation and the world? Let us not forget that it was Obama and his cadre of communist acolytes who radicalized American institutions, spied on American citizens, subverted justice, and are grossly responsible for all of the corruption and damage done by Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State John Kerry, and others.

I still want to know where Obama was when Muslim terrorists attacked Benghazi and who gave the stand-down order to prevent their rescue.

We are so screwed.

THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION: CRAVEN COWARDICE AND APPEASEMENT

Will the cowardly Democrats cave to Hamas-led propaganda?

GENOCIDE

Genocide is written into the Hamas Charter and is echoed every time some terrorist-sympathizer screams, "From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free."

Cease-fire, my ass!

Chris Murphy (D-CT), a self-righteous progressive communist democrat asshole, sits in his comfortable office in Washington D.C. and has the gall to tell Israel, a nation surrounded by its enemies and fighting for its survival, that they must moderate their response to a terrorist attack that killed the largest number of Jews since the Holocaust.

"The current rate of civilian death inside Gaza is unacceptable and unsustainable. I urge Israel to immediately reconsider its approach and shift to a more deliberate and proportionate counterterrorism campaign."

Since when is it prudent for any nation attacked by terrorists to give aid and comfort to their sworn enemies, the majority of whom are calling for their total extermination?

What nation, in the history of mankind, has ever been asked to provide humanitarian aid, food, water, medicine, and fuel to a nation at war, a population that openly elected a terrorist government, and whose majority celebrated a heinous atrocity?

Already, the U.S. government is reporting that Hamas is attempting to sneak militants out of the Gaza Strip among civilians under evacuation.

U.S. and Egyptian officials found that a third of the names selected to exit Gaza via Rafah crossing into Egypt were Hamas fighters, none of whom were among the 76 wounded Palestinians eventually evacuated. <Source>

Squawking about international norms…

Has anyone noticed that in the 2005 United Nations  World Summit Outcome Document ((A/RES/60/1), Heads of State and Government affirmed their responsibility to protect their own populations from genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing, and crimes against humanity and accepted a collective responsibility to encourage and help each other uphold this commitment?

138. Each individual State has the responsibility to protect its populations from genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity. This responsibility entails the prevention of such crimes, including their incitement, through appropriate and necessary means. We accept that responsibility and will act in accordance with it. The international community should, as appropriate, encourage and help States to exercise this responsibility and support the United Nations in establishing an early warning capability. <Source>

Representatives of Hamas stated that it was not their responsibility to protect the Gazans they govern but the duty of the United Nations and the “occupiers?”  Totally ignoring the fact that since 2005, there have been no Jews, Jewish settlements, or Jewish officials in Gaza or the West Bank. And that by shouting “from the river to the sea,” they are calling for the genocide of Jews residing in Israel?

Interviewer: Many people are asking, since you have built 500 km of tunnels, why haven’t you built bomb shelters where civilians can hide during bombardments?

Mousa Abu Marzouk (Hamas Political Bureau): We built the tunnels because we have no other way of protecting ourselves from being targeted and killed. These tunnels are meant to protect us [Hamas members] from the airplanes. We are fighting from inside the tunnels.  As for the Gaza strip, you know and everybody knows that 75% of the people in the Gaza strip are refugees. And refugees are the responsibility of the United Nations to protect them. According to the Geneva Convention, it is the responsibility of the occupation to provide them with all the services for as long as they are under occupation. <Source>

There should be no doubt that the corrupt United Nations is primarily anti-America, anti-Israel, and pro-Palestinian – even though there was never a nation-state of Palestine, no head of state, no body of laws, no currency, and no definable historical population.

Hamas wants dead Palestinians and to prevent them from exiting combat areas...

In Gaza, the IDF said on Saturday that the Hamas terrorist organization took advantage of a humanitarian window of opportunity that the IDF gave to the residents of Gaza and carried out attacks with mortar fire and anti-tank missiles.

"There were no casualties to our forces in this incident," the IDF said.

The IDF had informed residents that the Salah al-Din route, a major road running from Gaza City to southern Gaza, could be used for humanitarian transit by civilians.

"While the IDF was opening a humanitarian axis for the movement of Gaza residents to the south, terrorists from the terrorist organization Hamas attacked the forces involved in opening it," the IDF said.

Hamas exploited this and used mortars and artillery to prevent it from being opened to the movement of civilians. <Source>

What will these congressional cowards do when it comes to protecting the United States?

The Biden Administration is equating anti-Semitism to Islamophobia. As the Jews in Israel face an existential threat and Hamas-supporting Muslims take to the streets, we find a Muslim crowd attacking Jews barricaded in a library.

So here is the Administration’s priority...

The White House is working on a strategy to combat Islamophobia.

President Joe Biden’s administration is developing a national strategy to combat Islamophobia as the White House faces skepticism from many Muslim Americans for its staunch support of Israel’s military assault on Hamas in Gaza.

Plans for the initiative, which the White House billed as the first of its kind, were announced Wednesday. It is meant to bring together lawmakers, advocacy groups and other community leaders with the administration in order to “counter the scourge of Islamophobia and hate in all its forms,” the White House said. <Source>

Democrat Dick Durbin became the first senator to call for a cease-fire in the Israel–Gaza war as Israel roots out Hamas terrorists.

Dick Durbin [holding the second-highest position in the Democratic leadership in the Senate] becomes the first US senator to express support for a ceasefire in Gaza, while clarifying that it must include the release of all hostages in the Hamas-run enclave.

Durbin’s condition regarding the release of some 240 hostages sets him apart from the 18 Democrats from the far-left flank of his party who signed onto a resolution calling for a ceasefire, which makes no mention of those kidnapped into Gaza. “An effort should be made to engage in conversation between the Israelis and Palestinians.”

Durbin tells CNN his ceasefire call is “under circumstances, for example, the release of those who have been kidnapped as part of it, as an indication that this is a good faith effort on part of the other side.”

Discussing the Israeli-Palestinian conflict more broadly, the pro-two-state Durbin says, “Let’s face it, this has gone on for decades. Whatever the rationale from the beginning has now reached an intolerable level. We need to have a resolution in the Middle East that gives some promise to the future.” <Source>

How do you have a “conversation” with an enemy whose charter includes your total annihilation?

How can you rely on any “good faith” effort from an enemy whose policy is to deceive and attack?

Is Durban stupid, insane, or merely parroting the Obama-directed party line?

Bottom line…

Never-again

We are not only standing with Israel, we are standing for our own survival against an intolerant medieval force armed with modern weaponry – made infinitely more dangerous since former Democrat President Jimmy Carter birthed Islamo-Fascism in Iran, former Democrat President Barack Hussein Obama propped up the faltering Iran regime and provided them with a path to nuclear weapons and Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles, and current Democrat President Joe Biden provided Iran with billions of dollars to continue the Obama masterplan of “balancing the power in the Middle East” -- "to overcome Israel’s regional dominance."

The progressive communist democrats have proven they want to destroy America from within. And the only question that remains is: Will we let them?

We are so screwed.
