What should be obvious is that, leading up to the elections for Israel’s 19th Knesset, the majority of the public identified with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s ability to present Israel’s legitimate case before the world. They supported his moves in Jerusalem and tolerated, to a large extent, Israel’s presence in Judea and Samaria.

In poll after poll over the last two decades, we see a dichotomy: Israelis desire peace very much and are willing to offer much to obtain it, but they do not believe that a peace agreement is achievable and they believe even less that the Arabs would preserve that peace.

Confident in Netanyahu’s handling of Israel’s external threats, Israeli voters felt able to vote based on their lack of confidence in their day-to-day lives. Thinking Netanyahu was already confirmed as Prime Minister, some voters presumed they had a virtual ‘double-ticket’ and sought out someone else.

The voters were dissatisfied with his domestic social programs, or lack thereof, not his foreign and security policies. They were convinced by promises of cheaper housing, less expensive utilities and a fair share of the burden of military service, and, drawn by their desire to be ‘the middle class’, some abandoned the Likud.

Israel’s voters have a history of searching for a secular saviour outside the usual party groupings. In 1977, the Dash Movement for Change obtained 15 seats. In 1999, there was the Center Party with six. In 2003, Yair Lapid’s father, Tommy, broke out with 15 seats for Shinui. In the end, they all dissipated, either disappearing or merging into other frameworks.



There was a time in the 80s when standup comedians were required by law to wear loud blazers and louder ties and to demand answers to life’s unanswerable questions about senseless products, airline regulations and the other inconveniences of modern life. “Who were the geniuses who came up with that one?” was their demand.

The Republican Party, which has been a joke for almost as long as it has been a party, is in the hands of those same geniuses. Fresh off two defeats in presidential elections, they have come up with the plan of all plans to get back on top.

First, they will nuke their own grassroots by raising money to attack deviant Tea Party candidates and protect true conservatives who support amnesty, tax shelters and tax hikes. Considering that the Tea Party was responsible for the first Republican victories since 2004, spending money going after it is bound to attract voters and improve prospects for more victories in 2014.

Second, they will add 11 million Democratic voters to the rolls through amnesty for illegal aliens as part of a brilliant plan to stop being a national party and settle down to fighting pitched battles for local council seats. Even the geniuses behind the election polling and ORCA should be able to win a few those. And if they can’t, then it’ll be time to raise more money to keep down some of those pesky Tea Party types trying to run for school boards while saying politically incorrect things.

Fortunately there is a clear path to victory. All we have to do is convince the Party of Consultants that all is lost and that they should come out as Democrats now. If they do that, then the Democratic Party will be a useless ruin within a decade. If they don’t do that, the Republican Party will have the same policies as the Democratic Party, except for the part where it wins elections.


Muslims Plan to March on White House September 11, 2013  http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2013/01/31/286487/million-muslim-march-on-white-house/ By Dr. Kevin Barrett The attack on American Muslims’ free speech actually appears to have begun a few days before 9/11, when the FBI raided key Muslim organizations and shut down their computer servers. The FBI’s raids preemptively prevented Muslims from freely expressing and […]



Kerry, Hagel and Brennan, the fiddlers three, nominated by our Surrenderer-in-Chief will preside over a deliberate weakening and subsequent lack of readiness of the U.S. military together with a reduction of U.S. influence abroad. That will be their primary function as Obama proceeds with imposing a suffocating cultural Marxism upon America.

Kerry has all the confidence of his inability as well as the kind of arrogance which accompanies undeserved success and as he dons his peacemaker’s clothes and anxiously strides around the Middle East, a region where he thinks he will be able to add luster to his reputation most easily, we will have it confirmed to us that when willfully ignorant, weak, frightened and misguided men address themselves to an intractable problem it is usually the reputation of the problem that remains intact.

Kerry is an obnoxious, condescending and tiresome windbag clinging to the fallacy of the “two-state solution”, like some security blanket, unwilling to challenge his assumptions let alone demand that Hamas, Hezbollah and the PLO repudiate the parts of their respective charters calling for genocide against the Jewish people BEFORE statehood can even be contemplated. If Hagel, a man who has risen almost without a trace, is appointed as our Secretary of Defense it will be the most cynical political act since Caligula made his horse a senator and Brennan, well Brennan is just clueless. Any conversation with them about our foreign policy and national security interests would be bound to subtract from the entire store of knowledge on those subjects.

These ridiculous men were chosen not in spite of their inadequacies but because of them. Our enemies must be laughing their caftans off and dancing in the streets.

as always,

Kahlili Reports North Koreans May be Among 40 Dead at Alleged Fordow Blast in Iran

http://www.newenglishreview.org/blog_direct_link.cfm/blog_id/46069 World Net Daily (WND) was tagged “a CIA mouthpiece” by IRNA, the Islamic Regime’s official news agency. IRNA’s accusations aside, the government news agency reported verbatim the essence of various WND articles by Reza Kahlili about the mysterious explosions at the Fordow enrichment facility deep in a mountain near Qom. Reza Kahlili is an […]


http://pjmedia.com/andrewmccarthy/2013/02/04/oppose-brennan-for-cia-director/ To cut to the chase, a country that was serious about its national security would never put John Brennan in charge of its premier intelligence service. Of course, it is by no means clear that the United States is any longer a serious country in this regard. Serious countries do not fund, arm and […]

http://www.prudenpolitics.com/newsletter?utm_source=P&P%20Auto%201&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=6044 President Obama has probably put the Secret Service on this one, and the FBI, the CIA and the D.C. cops, too. Who came up with that really dumb idea of putting out an official White House photograph of the president stalking clay pigeons with his shotgun? Maybe it was the campaign consultant who gave […]

Will America’s Next DefenseSsecretary Vindicate the Cause of the Mediocre Man? By BRET STEPHENS

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887323807004578284314085002042.html Once upon a time, a Republican senator from Nebraska spoke up for the right of mediocrities to occupy eminent positions of public trust. “Even if he were mediocre, there are a lot of mediocre judges and people and lawyers,” said Sen. Roman Hruska in 1970 as a defense of G. Harrold Carswell, Richard Nixon’s […]



The wrong McCain may have had the job of taking Senator Chuck Hagel to school on the Middle East. Senator John McCain earned plenty of headlines for his questioning of Hagel but did he teach Hagel anything about Israel and the Middle East?

Setting aside the question of whether Hagel has the ability to absorb the truths about the neighborhood that Israel lives in, this could have been a teachable moment for Hagel and many Americans who often do not grasp that Israel’s neighbors are not friendly Canadians.

That John McCain is a strong friend of Israel is not debatable, but the fact is that John’s younger brother Joe McCain may understand more about Israel’s precarious circumstances.

Joe McCain is a former newspaper reporter and U.S. Navy veteran. In the wake of the September 11 Islamic terrorist attacks on America Joe McCain’s views on Israel first came to public attention.

On April 19, 2002 at an Orthodox synagogue called Nusach Hari B’nai Zion in St. Louis Joe McCain gave a talk that was titled “Never Again.”

Joe McCain observed “The irony goes unnoticed — while we are hammering away to punish those who brought the horrors of last September here, we restrain the Israelis from the same retaliation. Not the same thing, of course — We are We, They are They. While we mourn and seethe at September 11th, we don’t notice that Israel has a September 11th sometimes every day.”
