Yesterday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the United Nations about their struggle with Hamas.
Netanyahu noted that some of the countries that didn't support Israel in fighting Hamas were quick to support President Obama's actions against ISIS. Netanyahu said, "Hamas and ISIS are branches of the same poisonous tree." Both ISIS and Hamas present a very dangerous threat, as both have the ultimate goal of global domination.
Hamas, like ISIS, seeks to establish a caliphate, yet there has been very little support for Israel. Hamas placed rockets where Palestinian children live and play, showing their true colors by using civilians as human shields. Israel defended itself against these war crimes, and the actions of Hamas have yet to be denounced. more >>
No one grows up with aspirations of government dependency. Social issues give Conservatives the perfect opportunity to prove they're the big brothers to Americans and not the bullies. Can you imagine what America might look like today if the first Republican president, Abraham Lincoln, had not taken on the social issues of his day, slavery and polygamy?
Imagine being the parents of Sandra Fluke as you observe your child beg for subsidized condoms on national television during the 2012 DNC. How disappointing. No father tells his son "work hard, go to college and get on food stamps as soon as possible." No little girl wearing a princess dress and a blinged out plastic tiara dreams of marrying her prince charming then aborting her firstborn. Leftist are transforming our men into boys, our women into usable goods, and their favorite targets are minorities.
According to BlackGenocide.org, 78 percent of Planned Parenthood clinics are located in minority communities. Who's going to fight against the existential threat that's being perpetrated against my people due to the Left's social policies? Republicans used to be the definitive answer. more >>
A recent Pew study made headlines last week, revealing, "as values, economics, and gender patterns change . . . the share of American adults that have never been married is at an historic high." According to the report "adults are marrying later in life, and the shares of adults cohabiting and raising children outside of marriage have increased significantly. . . . In addition, shifting public attitudes, hard economic times and changing demographic patterns may all be contributing to the rising share of never-married adults."
The report also reveals that the American people are about evenly split in their opinion about whether or not this trend is harmful to society, but given the mountains of anecdotal and statistical evidence demonstrating the unequivocal societal benefits of marriage, it seems safe to say that this trend has ominous implications for society, regardless of the divided public opinion on the matter.
As disappointing as this trend away from marriage is, it's not really surprising. It is no secret that American society has always venerated the ideal of self-determination. Americans blaze their own trails; we are risk takers and barrier breakers, etc. We have never been satisfied with doing things the way they've always been done, simply because they've always been done that way. more >>
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the United Nation's (U.N.) General Assembly, giving Israel a chance to refute comments made last Friday by Palestinian Authority President, Mahmoud Abbas. During his speech, Abbas characterized Israel's self-defense against Hamas, a terrorist organization, as "war crimes." Fatah and Hamas, two main Palestinian political factions, united in April and recently reaffirmed their unity government in the Gaza Strip. In June the United Nations Human Rights Council voted to investigate Israel on war crimes. The only country to reject this resolution was the United States.
Such allegations, against a country whose first priority is to protect the safety of their citizens, are appalling. Unfortunately, President Obama's choice words for our ally during his remarks at the U.N. did not help. Obama referred to the summer's conflict as one between "Palestinians and Israelis." He stated, "... the violence engulfing the region today has made too many Israelis ready to abandon the hard work of peace. But let's be clear: the status quo in the West Bank and Gaza is not sustainable. We cannot afford to turn away from this effort - not when rockets are fired at innocent Israelis, or the lives of so many Palestinian children are taken from us in Gaza."
Where is the outrage over a terrorist organization fighting from civilian areas, Mr. President? Let's be clear, the conflict in Gaza was not a war among peaceful Palestinians. Instead, it was a war waged by a group of Palestinians, one that is internationally categorized as a terrorist organization. Hamas put innocent lives in Gaza at risk by choosing conflict over diplomacy while using civilian populated areas to their advantage. more >>
As a kid, many of us eagerly awaited the next hilarious episode of Jed Clampett and his Beverly Hillbillies. Parents never gave a thought that there might be something objectionable on the popular TV sitcom.
Today moms and dads who care about wholesome entertainment for their children and teens have to be ultra-vigilant with TV and computers due to disturbing trends in today's decadent culture.
Recently, USA TODAY commented, "Booty is the latest trend that music fans are getting behind – and the numbers back it up. In just three weeks, Nicki Minaj's butt-tastic 'Anaconda' video has jiggled up nearly 170,000,000 views on YouTube, snatching the record for most views in a day from Miley Cyrus' 'Wrecking Ball.'" more >>
A few months ago, he was one of the most powerful people in Washington, indeed the country. Head of a massive Cabinet department with a budget of nearly $80 billion, when the Secretary left his downtown government office Secret Service agents scurried, memo-laden aides scrambled around wondering who would ride in the lead car and who would be forced to go in the longer caravan. Officials from governors to small town mayors would wonder who would get grants and what projects they could tout as promises of benefits fell from the Secretary's lips.
When I saw the former Secretary recently, walking along the streets of Washington, he was by himself, walking rather stooped over, carrying what looked like a too-heavy briefcase as he trudged down the sidewalk. In that moment he was unrecognized, merely another aging striver caught in the stream of early morning pedestrians.
He is not the first "former" I've seen in my more than two decades in DC. There have been many occasions when those who once were Senators, Cabinet Secretaries, and Members of Congress have crossed my path at various events and sometimes just in passing on the street. People with impressive titles, huge portfolios of responsibility, command of gigantic sums of taxpayer money, and virtual armies of assistants who are now just ordinary citizens, no longer courted, no longer fawned-over, and only as influential as the amount of money the PACs they influence can distribute to eager candidates and party officials. more >>
