Peace For Our Time?

02-John-Kerry-Channeling-Neville-Chamberlain-520x248

My good friends, for the second time in our history, a British prime minister has returned from Germany bringing peace with honour. I believe it is peace for our time … Go home and get a nice quiet sleep.”

~ Neville Chamberlain, September 30, 1938

“If we, as a nation, continue to believe the blatant lies being fed to us by this administration, we are heading for a world where Iran is a nuclear armed terror state and an arms race with other Arab nations in the region.” Continue reading

Dancing with the Devil: Obama’s “Stunning Historic Mistake”

Iran gets the bomb

On Tuesday, July 14, 2015, the world got a lot scarier. As President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry celebrated the completion of a ‘deal’ with Iran, an ominous feeling of déjà vu cast a long shadow over the news and on the prospects for peace in the world, perhaps for generations. While the administration told us throughout the long negotiations that they were prepared to walk away from the table, it was clear almost from the outset that these were negotiations they were not willing to see fail. In the process, they gave away the store and got nothing in return but the prospect of nuclear war. Continue reading

How Obama Lost Israel’s Election

Bibi's voictoryWhen Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin ‘Bibi’ Netanyahu came to town in early March, he came to address a joint session of Congress at the invitation of House Speaker John Boehner. President Barack Obama pointedly refused to meet with him. His excuse was that he didn’t want to appear to influence the Israeli elections, just two weeks away.

That excuse was both ironic and blatantly hypocritical Continue reading

Netanyahu in Washington: An Eleventh-hour Plea for Sanity

netanyahu-congress-1

On Tuesday, March 3, Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu laid out in an address before a joint meeting of Congress, a compelling rebuttal to the President’s case for the phased deal with the Islamic Republic of Iran.  He diplomatically paid court to President Obama for supplying both known and secret support for the Jewish nation of Israel, and thanked him for his continued friendship.

We didn’t need Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to come tell us how big a threat a nuclear enabled Iran will be. Well-informed Americans already know that Iran’s acquisition of a nuclear weapons production capability in the hands of their apocalyptic regime will fan the flames of war in the Middle East and put the entire world at risk.

‘Terrorism = National Security’ as Policy: A Bad Idea

The savage attack on worshippers at a Jerusalem synagogue this week demonstrated in the most horrible and graphic manner the futility of America’s obsession with ‘peace talks’ between Israel and the so-called ‘Palestinians’. Although it has been demonstrated countless times before, in terrorist attack after terrorist attack, every American administration in recent years has adopted the flawed policies of previous administrations, creating a moral equivalence between the terrorism of non-state actors and a nation’s right to self-defense. America has built its foreign policy around it.

What they don’t seem to get is this: there is no moral equivalence between the Palestinians and the Israelis.There can be no moral equivalence between non-state terrorists who murders civilians in violent terror attacks and a sovereign state with the responsibility to provide security to it citizens. In just the last fourteen years, 1,246 Israelis, most of them civilians (including the elderly, women, and children) were killed at the hands of Palestinian terrorists. These attacks have been brutal and unprovoked. They have ranged from random attacks on individual Israelis to a mass murder at a Passover Seder in 2002, in which a suicide bomber killed 28 Israelis and injured 140 more.

Israel’s response was massive then, as it should be now, and America should be standing shoulder to shoulder with Israel, fighting the scourge of Islamist terrorism that threatens both countries. Continue reading

ISIS and Hamas Against the West

Senior level people in the Obama administration seem to think that ISIS is some kind of joke, a low level group with grandiose goals and little means of achieving them. So while ISIS has continued to shore up its power-base and train its terrorists for global warfare, the President completed his vacation and continues his round of fund-raisers. The President and his appointed advisers continue to demonstrate their ignorance and incompetence when confronted by real world terrorists who have, under their noses, evolved into savages at war with civilization. The urgency that is now required to address the real and present danger represented by ISIS to the United States seems to be low on the list of Obama’s priorities. Continue reading

Obama Will “Honor Islam” by Visiting Malaysia’s Nat’l Mosque on Site of Appropriated Church

Obama has been a master of easy rhetoric and glib responses to an ongoing series of complex and highly charged issues. A combination of false promises, dismissive comments about hot topics, and downright lies has been the hallmark of Obama’s  super-secretive tenure in the White House. Now the President takes another step in his theater of the absurd by visiting the Malaysian national mosque, Masjid Negara, which was built on the site of the Venning Road Brethren Gospel Hall. The church was built in 1922, but was appropriated and destroyed by the Malaysian government in 1962 for the purpose of building the National Mosque.

The mosque’s own website states, “The mosque was actually built on the site of a church in 1965. The mosque has been standing firm on its grounds since then [emphais added] and is now deemed as an important symbol of the Islamic country of Malaysia.”

This is the very mosque that President Obama will be visiting.The symbolism of the mosque is unmistakable, that Islam legitimately supersedes Christianity. The President’s visit underscores either his acceptance or his ignorance of this principle. Continue reading

Kerry’s No-win Middle East Initiative: No-Talks, No-Peace

john-kerry 2While Secretary of State John Kerry bemoans the collapse of his peace initiative and holds Israel responsible for its failure, he has mostly himself to blame: from the beginning, his anti-Israel position helped to tip the scales with a narrative and preconceived conditions that were neither fair nor true. Continue reading

UKRAINE IN CIVIL WAR – Who Cares?

Americans should be alarmed over the Ukraine civil war, because what is taking place half-a-world-away in Kiev, Ukraine sends a clear signal around the globe that America no longer is the force for good; the power to stand against evil; the influence to start and direct meaningful negotiations we were known for at one time.  America is in retreat across the globe and our allies know this, and our enemies really know this and no longer even listen when Obama speaks!
