Will Obama Help Protect Israel

Hamas exists for a single purpose: The destruction of Israel. Everyone who is conscious, knows that. They’ve made that no secret.

 They’ve also made it no secret that they want to see Obama become our president.

Please watch this one minute video:

Besides Hamas, the Palestinians have set up phone banks to raise money for Obama’s election. He is their choice, for us. While there may be “peaceful” Palestinians, there are millions more who support the destruction of Israel, which is a publicly stated goal since 1948 that has never wavered. How do we discern the “peaceful” from the “hateful?”

There is evidence which link Obama to radical Islamists not only in the U.S., but around the world. You read it all already, you’ve heard it all. Many choose to dismiss it all as “exaggerations” and “smear campaigns,” and then turn their back to reality. Why? Because they want a democrat in office, at all costs.
What are we doing?
What absolutely amazes me, is that so many of my Jewish friends, who are supporting Obama, have such short memories. Jews have been the target of hate and annihilation over four millennium. Yet, they still allow themselves to be led, like lambs to the slaughter.

Thousands of Jews voted for Hitler in 1933, because they wanted change and a better economy. They got both. They listened to the words, and disregarded “Mien Kampf”.

Castro was a change agent, and a charismatic speaker, and who had the support of the U.S. and much of the world because he seemed to earnest. He kept his lies secret until he assumed office. It wasn’t until he was in power that the real Castro came out, and united with the Soviets.

True, if elected, Obama will have the Constitution and a congress to deal with. But with presidential power, and a rubber stamp congress, coupled with the seething hate toward GWB and co., he will have the weaponry by which to initiate “change” in America, from which we may never recover.
And, when the showdown occurs for the survival of Israel, (as it has many times in 60 years) will Obama be there for the Islamists, or for the Jews? It may well come down to that — one or the other — particularly…as Senator Biden predicted…if his mettle is tested within six months.
That’s the time when sitting down and “talking” is past, and the guns are firing. These people want Israel destroyed. When the moment arrives, and the choice must be made, will Obama be there to support Israel, or will he acquiesce to the Arab world that wants Israel destroyed?

Jews have been marched down the path of destruction before, more than once. This is not a hate article, not a smear. From the bottom of my heart, I fear Barack Obama an impending danger. I hope I’m wrong. I really hope I am wrong.
But, my Jewish friends, I must ask: Is he worth the risk?

POWELL'S ACT OF BETRAYAL: WHY?

 
 
Whatever happened to the concept of loyalty?
I grew up in a world where people took care of those who took care of them. That must be a bygone era.
Governor Bill Richardson exemplified a rat’s rat when he turned on the Clintons to back Barack Obama, sucking up for a vice presidency. Richardson would still be a nobody had it not been for Bill Clinton elevating him to two cabinet posts during his administration.
Enter, the former Secretary of State. For years, Colin Powell has been among the most revered public figures in America, once envisioned by millions, possibly, as the first African American president. Many thought he would be chosen as John McCain’s running mate. After all, he had been a staunch ally of Senator McCain for twenty years, as was McCain to him.
Instead, he stuck it to McCain.
Here is a man whose rise to national prominence was at the behest of republicans like Ronald Reagan, George Bush I, George Bush II and John McCain. First black National Security Advisor. First black four star general of the U.S. army. First black Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of staff. First black Secretary of State. All on the coattails of republicans who saw greatness in this man. John McCain was there supporting him all the way.
Instead, he not only stuck it to McCain, he stuck it to the republican party.
Colin Powell shares nothing in common with Barack Obama, and everything in common with McCain, including a long and distinguished military career and later, many years of public service. He and McCain have been stalwarts of republican party moderation, often separating themselves from the far right dogma. They stood shoulder to shoulder in the successes of Gulf War I, and then the War in Afghanistan and the most controversial of all; the War in Iraq. They have shared a common bond, similar views, similar careers and mutual respect.
Who would have guessed? When the chips were down, in a colossal act of betrayal, Powell turned his back on everyone who catapulted him to prominence over the last twenty years, including John McCain, by backing Obama for president. Obama’s politics are an ocean apart from moderate republicanism. He is also the most liberal left-wing of all one hundred senators in Washington D.C. He never served in the military; never supported Powell in his career, does not share the same ideology and has no record from which to draw any parallel. It makes no sense.
Powell has forever personified the erosion of the color line in America, drawing admiration from all sides of the spectrum, not because of color but because of his accomplishments. All of America has loved Colin Powell.
Not any more. All that respect and admiration for Colin Powell just took a major dump among millions, not just because he disappointed supporters of McCain, but because nobody loves a backstabber, no matter what party he or she belongs to.
Why did he do it? Platitudes like “new direction,” and “transformational figure” and citing McCain’s pick for vice president, doesn’t cut it. I might buy into the Judas-like betrayal had Powell identified one political issue he agrees with, or one accomplishment of Obama’s that he alined himself with. But that didn’t happen.
When all is said and done, and the dust settles, that one reason becomes crystal clear. I know what that reason is, and so do most Americans.
McCain and Powell have much in common… except one thing.
Obama and Powell have nothing in common…except one thing.

Greatest Comedians Of All Time

Always loved a good comic.

Maybe I’m just an old fogey who, like most old fogies, think the old timers were better than what the modern day produces. When I surf cable channels, like the Comedy station, I try to find good humor without a litany of four-letter words, crotch-grabs, sexual denigration, and constant references to body parts, but it’s futile. What is it that the audience finds so funny? Comics today think the funniest word on the planet is the oft repeated, “MF.” Alas, I sit laughless.

In today’s world, viewers of sit-coms are manipulated by canned laughter. Class B television actors recite lines and suddenly we hear an uproarious response to an inane comment that’s about as funny as a sore throat.

Whatever happened to the variety show before a live audience? Jackie Gleason and all his characters? Same with Flip Wilson, Carol Burnett, and Sonny and Cher. And for those of us who can remember, the age-old “Colgate Comedy Hour.”

Having come from a show-biz family, I am always looking for a good comedy, on television, stand -up, and in movies to rival such classics as “Some Like It Hot,” and “What’s Up Doc,” both of which starred non-comedians yet were among the funniest ever. Who can deny that Mel Brooks’ “Young Frankenstein” and “Blazing Saddles” were not among the comic classics, or “Liar Liar” and “Silver Streak.”

So…who were the most talented comedians of all time? Most of my top ten are long gone…but they sure knew how to evoke pure laughter from an audience.

My top ten:

Jackie Gleason

Carol Burnett

Robin Williams

Red Skelton

Johnny Carson

Jerry Lewis

Harvey Korman

Richard Pryor

Bill Cosby

Jim Carrey

Honorable mention (meaning, could easily be a top tenner also)

 

Sid Ceasar

Eddie Murphy

George Carlin

 

Steve Martin

 

Lucille Ball

Tim Conway

 

Mel Brooks

Flip Wilson

Bob Hope

Don Rickles

Art Frank

THE OCTOBER SURPRISE: IS OBAMA ELIGIBLE?

  

If Barack Obama stood naked on Times Square at noon, dealing a kilo of cocaine while smoking a joint, then robbed a bank and detonated a bomb in a federal building, his loyal followers would find a way to blame it all on G.W. Bush. It just wouldn’t matter; he’s Barack Obama. That makes it okay. To even think of arresting him is tantamount to “swift boating” the poor man. There are some folks who can do nothing wrong.
 

It reminds me of Mayor Marion Barry, who was not only accused, but actually caught on video dealing and using crack cocaine. But did the voters of Washington D.C. care? No..they re-elected him anyway. He’s Marion Barry.

The issue is not so much, the legal technicality, whether he was born here or there, though that is important. This is about deceit and dishonesty, unveiling an humongous lie. Those who will say this is not sticking to the political issues, are right. This is not about the issues. But it is about character, and about trust, and that is just as — or more — important as an issue.

It reminds me of O. J. Simpson, who left behind an ocean of hard evidence directly linking him to the murder of two people, and a black jury only wanted to hear one little phrase: “If the glove don’t fit, you gotta acquit.” Hey…he’s O.J.

I’ve made it no secret that an Obama presidency scares the hell out of me. Not so much for myself, but for what it would portend to my kids, and their kids down the road, and to America’s future. Many, not just me, have written about his sordid relationships with sleazy people who are clearly anti-American, but what does that matter? He’s Barack. Anyone who tries to expose him must be… what else? A racist!

I believe nothing he says in speeches. I do believe the last twenty-five years of his life, the parts we know about. Heaven knows, what has gone on behind closed doors.

If any other politician had ties to the likes of terrorist William Ayres, racist Jeremiah Wright, crook Rezko, Jew-hating Farrakhan, Marxist Raila Odinga, and etc., they would have never made it past the first primary. The media would have had a field day, excoriating his sleazy past and create enormous doubts about the true motives of the person running for president. Not Teflon Barack.

Now comes the latest, which will surely raise the ire of Obamamaniacs, issuing more accusations of racism and swift-boating. Is Barack Obama legally eligible to be president? Has Obama and his cronies, deliberately created a sham to hoodwink voters and circumvent the law?

Actually, this issue has been floating around the e-mail circuit for over a year, but no one (until now) has made the effort to follow through, to demand answers, to bring it to the courts…if necessary. Question in my mind: Why is it necessary? A forthright candidate would make it unnecessary.

I’ve attached a ten-minute video featuring Phillip J. Berg, the attorney who has filed suit in the federal courts to remove Obama from the ballot, based on legal issues, that he is not constitutionally eligible. There appears to be evidence that Obama was actually born in Kenya, not Hawaii, and that he…and the DNC…are stonewalling, refusing to produce the certified documents which would prove he was really born in Hawaii. There is evidence, apparently, that a B.H.O. Jr, white mom, Kenyan father, was born that same date, in a Kenyan hospital. If so, records have been doctored up for a long time. If not so, then someone has concocted an amazing plot for a novel.

Any other candidate would have no hesitation is producing such documents. Why the stonewalling?
