President Obamas Last State of the Union Address Finally

Part I

As the President takes to the podium to deliver his State of the Union Address, his final by all estimations, takes place with the pall of Ten American Sailors being held by Iran and the President announced ahead of his speech that he would not, repeat, not be mentioning the sailors as the Commander in Chief which explains why we prefer to call him the Ditherer in Chief. We have been told to expect to speak on broad terms and demand that the American people and Congress are responsible for making a President ‘all that he can be,’ to use that well-worn to death phrase may, we beg your forgiveness. He opened with praise for the Republicans in Congress caving on a budget likely to push the debt ceiling necessarily over twenty-trillion dollars and mentioning that there is a serious prescription drug abuse problem. The nerve of the man who made fighting drug abuse, specifically prescription drug abuse and heroin use a central theme of his as far back as 2010 and likely farther and now he claims the nation needs to tackle this problem as if he had not already promised that by 2015 drug use would be down by a measurable percent and instead it has drastically increased. It is almost as if the White House battle against drugs worked as well as his running of guns into Mexico in order to find the drug cartels when he could have simply asked the DEA except that plan was more to set-up a straw man to target funds and use as a central theme in a anti-Second Amendment campaign, and it might have gained traction except when an United States Border Agent was murdered with one of the guns provided by the White House Department of Justice gun scheme which began by providing thousands of firearms to the drug cartels right across the border in their blinded by hate of guns which Americans, according to President Obama himself “They get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.” as previously stated. If things continue like this we will be very glad he promised a short speech.

 

Laundry list time, and that right after he claimed he wanted “to go easy on the traditional list of proposals for the year ahead” started off “I’ve got many such as helping students write computer code to personalizing medical treatment and I will keep pushing for the things I believe need to be done.” Oh joy, here we go! Ready to rock-n-roll with the targets ladies and gents, let’s start with “fixing the broken immigration system, protecting our kids from gun violence, equal pay for equal work, paid leave, raising the minimum wage, all these things still matter to hard working families.” He wants to focus on the next five years. Five years, a five year plan, where have I heard that idea before, a five year plan, Oh! I remember, uncle Joe Stalin was big on Five Year Plans as was that jolly rotund individual, no, not Santa and while on that, take down those Christmas lights already, the other fat man, Mao Tse Tung, they both loved five year plans to death and that was exactly what they were, five year plans that starved millions to death. Oh even better, Ten year plan and beyond, then you will know you have entered the Twilight Zone. (queue music) He’s noticed change; wonder if it is the same change the rest of us see. Change that is reshaping the way we live, way we work, the planet, our place in the world. Umm, yea, and it don’t look like change we want or should want but I bet we are about to hear how wonderfully he has worked to bring us these changes. What a wonderful list of things we just heard and then for the clincher President Obama claims we have “everything we need for security and prosperity for generations to come,” and we’ll settle for finishing this generation handing a better world to our next generation and he probably thinks a world on the edge is better because at least the United States stayed out of things. Little hint, that is the problem, but we don’t expect you to see that because as you said, it is in that spirit we have made progress since President Obama’s rise to power, that is how you see it, right? You rose to power as the Caesars did in ancient Rome and that is why you had those Grecian pillars behind you for that acceptance speech in Denver, or your coronation and accepting the crown of might and the orb of power and the scepter of wisdom, I have those things correct, right? “That is how we recovered from the worst financial crisis in our history,” President Obama stated and I immediately thought that he had to be referring to the Great Depression of the 1930s because we still have yet to recover from the one you expanded upon in a manner even George W. Bush would have been amazed had he failed so spectacularly, but the President was referring to his handling of the financial crisis which has placed the largest percentage of the working force either working part time at as many as three jobs to earn the income one would have provided before Obamacare, where the largest percentage of the workforce has completely surrendered and have ceased even pretending to seek employment, and where graduates from the nations universities, even the finest of schools, are so desperately under employed or given wages that similar graduates fifteen years ago would have scoffed upon. But no, the President continued to spectacularly amaze us with further claims of greatness by listing his greatest failures domestically telling us, and a paraphrase as I really cannot continue rewind and suffer through his complete and willful blindness to the misery and hardships he has caused at home in the United States and throughout the world and the full ramifications will not be finished rippling back and forth through the world for at least another decade or more. The President continued his hall of shame bragging about his, as he put it, “we” as he had the Democrats who forced some of these monstrosities that plague the nations going forward as he listed the great reform of the healthcare system which when first released refused to permit people to remain logged into the site long enough to find out their doctor was not on the list, their healthcare was inadequate and thus cancelled and their premiums would necessarily skyrocket, if not immediately, within the next five years as that is the first five year plan. Then he claimed the reinventing of the energy sector. Does he mean by fracking which his administration did all it could to kill, the Keystone pipeline which the administration did kill, Solyndra which received half a billion dollars and failed, and the following list of only administration failed energy companies which received millions as hundreds of thousands just do not make the grade there is so many larger fish; Amonix, $20 million; Bright Source, $1.6 billion; Beacon Power, $43 million; Ecotality, $115 million; A 123 Solar, $279 million; Evergreen Solar, $527 million; Ener1, $118 million, and the equal number of eco-companies who lost hundreds of millions but still the greatest fail was in trust as money was thrown down known black holes simply to reward people who formed these companies and received gargantuan salaries and then declared bankruptcy and nobody batted an eye and they walked away fat, happy and wealthy with a wink and a nod. The final special notice was the Fisker Karma (pictured below) plug-in hybrid with an A123 battery system of lithium-ion batteries for electric cars failed during a test by Consumer Reports magazine and is reported to have been a fire hazard on wheels. The repair to make the vehicle useable will run around $67 million which contributed to A123 filing for bankruptcy. Fisker Automotive had designed a very attractive vehicle but the battery problem will necessarily set that project back and might even cause Fisker Automotive financial difficulties due to this unforeseen problem which was not of their doing. BMW hybrid 3-Series and 5-Series cars and GM’s all-electric Chevy Spark also were presumed to be run on A123 battery systems and also will need new sources.

Continuing onward; President Obama continued with a claim of providing more benefits and better care to our returning troops and veterans; and secured the freedom, wait for it, in every state, wait a little more for emphasis and this is huge and serious, to marry the person we love; (lick lips so as to look as we are using great effort) and such progress is not inevitable, which was the argument for same-gender-marriage, and it is the result of the choices we make. Now comes the ‘shame on you’ part of the speech where the American people are told of their shortcomings. How will they face the future and the challenges he wants to know. Will they have fear, turn inward and against each other or display confidence (something he knows so much about when talking of himself and all he has accomplished but what he refused to represent America as having as he approached the world leading from behind and cowering from every threat except one, the one threat he faced as it needed to be corrected and cut down just as America needed to be taught a lesson, and that nation was Israel, carrying on.

 

Now come the four questions Americans have to answer, big questions, and yes, I kid you not, four questions, next he will be reading from the Haggadah. 1) How to get all involved with opportunity and security in this new economy: return to the old economy which worked well until you and the Democrats further exploded the debt and removed opportunities. 2) How do we get technology to work for us in like repairing climate change: well, applying standard to China and India might help as the United States had met climate change challenges better than Europe or any other nation on any continent with only Antarctica producing less pollutants and climate change gasses per square mile than the United States and Israel. 3) How do we lead the world and keep it safe without becoming its police: not by leading from behind and pulling out of every dangerous situation and allowing the likes of the Islamic state, you remember them, they’re the Junior Varsity. Mr. President, you have given us seven years examples of how not to accomplish that and only Hillary Clinton is even less prepared than you were but at least she might get upset one morning and take some brash move out of anger as she was a tad bit peeved when she awoke and some idiot got her anger riled and she just told the Joint Chief of Staff to handle it and make sure she never hears from them again, and then she would have been far more adroit at getting the world to sit-up and pay attention as they never die for you. 4) How do we make our politics reflect what is best in us and not what is worst: reverse every last one of your foreign policy decisions and attempt to get the United States and the Western World out of the hole you helped dig that the third world would bury all of us given another eight years like yours.

 

President Obama just claimed that the United States has the strongest, most durable economy in the world. This is not supposed to be comedy hour at the local pub, is it? Now he says that the United States is in the longest private sector job increase in history. OK. Job creations, whatever and then the whopper, unemployment cut in half: yes sir, after you cut the work force by anywhere from five percent to fifteen percent and these numbers do not include those graduates from college who had to return to their parents’ house and reclaim their bed room from grandma’s sewing room and they are now taking care of grandma with their BA degree in renaissance literature and library science. Industry surge that created nine hundred thousand new jobs in the past six years, which is one hundred fifty thousand a year, and he is touting that as an accomplishment as otherwise he would have used a percentage increase per year which was likely near two percent, not exactly write home to mom in Indonesia, is it. Did he just say, While cutting our deficit by three quarters? Yes, he did, PULEEEZE!! I’m afraid I will explode listening to too much more of lies, deceptions, misrepresentations and we are not even one third the way through. Can I please stop now? Oh, I’m suffering so you do not have to except by reading this laboriously strange article.

 

Ah, the problem is ATMs replacing bank clerks and automation replacing workers because the cost of workers skyrocketed with Obamacare and next he wants to force the entire fast-food industry to automate as many $15.00/hr. jobs as they can with a living minimum wage when minimum wage jobs are where you prove to your first employer he did not make a mistake hiring you, not a support your family job and they never should be. Too many workers and insufficient jobs and many of the work seekers are not unemployed because they have not been able to find one of those one hundred and fifty thousand jobs created in manufacturing each year and too many of them are out of work bank clerks. And worldwide competition is only true because America’s employers are unable to afford American workers as the price due to government demands, regulations, stipulations and healthcare requirements amongst the highest corporate taxes in the world. It is no wonder they are fleeing to even Europe such as Spain where they have workers who are capable and a situation where the employer has all the advantages as Spain is indeed working to get employers, especially employers who need many busy little hands doing repetitive jobs which are not yet automated and cannot afford the price of business in the United States. The one area where the United States does have one of the finest pool of workers is in high skill work such as electronics but that is automating and price of production is making pass/fail without repair of failures a viable option. As far as the rest of the jobs, as Ray Kurzweil divined and he will tell you the humanoid robotic worker is only fifteen years away and then none of you will have jobs unless you are a futurist or a politician and for many of the same reasons except futurists are at least entertaining.

 

Almost every dramatic pause even some despite rousing applause, President Barack Hussein Obama bites his lower lip as if this is so important and he is concentrating so unbelievably hard reading the words somebody else wrote and he has been studying and even making changes so it would be easier for him to read, remember the tonal intonations which is sitting on either side (and possibly straight before him projected on the podium) and likely in a screen centered in front all hidden from view. He has already slipped once or twice and halfway made the eyes slightly squinted and chin stuck forward and his head tilted back making for the near perfect Mussolini pose which he would take as a side stance often when before purely Democrat crowds who apparently loved it. We appear to be entering the special dimensional-shifting, trans-dimentional,  intra-perceptibility, rose-colored-lensed-interferometer, and reality-free-video-generating-display where up is forward and backwards is left and he is she and who is he and we are all in Ulpan and that means that if not for what the President managed through Herculean efforts to manage the economy and if instead those others who have impeded his every move had been in charge things would have been so much worse and if only the Democrats would have kept all the power then the entire economy would be more fantastic that what President Obama managed to salvage. Now that we have cleared up who is to blame for the difficulties. We need to look at where all Americans agree, oh, I just can’t wait for this part. All Americans agree we should provide pre-K for all just in time for my second childhood, every student hands-on computer and math classes to make them job ready, recruit more and great teachers, affordable college for all, no student should start in the red, not probably green, blue and eggshell are fine; and we, there goes that plural reference to himself, and the rate of payment has been put at ten percent of nothing, because that is what too many college graduates are making, nothing. Moving along, provide free two years in community college, onward and upward as the United States college age child deserves benefits and protections that provides a basic measure of security that is where Obamacare comes in and saves the day but there are needs such as wage insurance and advanced training, plus food stamps didn’t cause the crisis, Wall Street did.

 

The President claimed there are outdated regulations which need to be changed, not eliminated, just adjusted to reflect how government can grab more of industrial might through costly regulations which agrees with his appointment of Cass Sunstein as the Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs whose job it was to go through the entirety of Congressional Legislation and find what laws could be utilized to write additional regulation so as to be as onerous upon the American economy as possible. Now he is going to complain about record corporate profits because as any good little socialist redistributionist, corporations are not in business to make money for the owners and the shareholders as they are the wealthy, and that includes all of you with 401K retirement plans which are reaping those record profits for your retirement. You and they did not make those profits, government did and thus government should be permitted to spend those profits as they please.

 

The problem is not immigration, too much of it illegal with the blessing of the Obama White House and nearly every White House going back to Dwight David Eisenhower, and Yes, I am old enough to remember. It is corporate board rooms putting immediate profits ahead of long term principles, otherwise known as redistribution of profits which is what corporate taxes, highest in the world, EPA regulations, codes, fines, and a whole hearted and cold hearted attempt to put coal powered electricity out of business through compensatory regulations which make any planned coal fired plant a sinkhole that swallows investor monies and makes currently operating coal fired plants on the brink of insolvency and soon bankrupt and out of business despite the fact that three quarters of the power generated in the United States is from coal. They are also working on doing away with as many dams, even with electrical generators hydro-powered inside, on the destruction list for the fishies. Workers and small businesses and, well, let’s say it, the businesses government decides to protect and favor are to be granted freedom and liberty to make money as long as they remain small and under government influence otherwise they will become another big company just making profits and enslaving the world so those, including any we helped get this far last year, big companies, and we all know who they are apparently, must be brought down until they answer to government control and don’t you dare call me a fascist. And we can have a brighter future if I, President Obama, can direct where corporate profits are spent, not necessarily with shareholder, though I realize they must get a few dribbling drabs, but most must benefit the country and be spread throughout which can only happen if we steal, I mean tax, these profits at insane levels and then government taketh away and government giveth, just like in my bible. We must be fair, or is it fare for those making money, those evil capitalists.

 

President Obama just referred to NASA in the 1960s beating the Russians to the Moon; this from a man who constantly had people refer to the almost $2.5 billion that NASA receives, suggesting cutting the fat from the NASA budget would be our savior ignoring the percentage; and these are actual percentages they never tell you, that should the entire, E-N-T-I-R-E, entire NASA budget be completely destroyed and NASA disbanded entirely it would not cut the budget by even one percent. We would lose almost all our discovery programs, no longer have the NASA Big Gun experiments and that wonderfully photogenic man with his almost childlike amazement at how wonderful his job is playing in a high tech sandbox and testing what-ifs through shooting pellets and making explosions he studies. FYI, I really like that man as he exudes the love for discovery that is infectious and I am hoping it spreads. The truth is the NASA budget is three-quarters of one percent of the budget, or less than the average amount of pork placed into any omnibus budget bill like the one just passed by probably Wyoming. I am not sure I can take this; he is comparing the immigration from the mid-nineteenth century through the first half or so of the twentieth century with modern immigration of which two-thirds are illegals from Mexico and the Americas south of Mexico. Sorry Mr. President, but that bird not only does not fly, it is known as the Kiwi and is only found today on shoe-polish lids.

 

President Obama just appointed Uncle Joe; get your gaffs here, Biden as the person in charge of curing cancer. I like Joe, he is overly abundant in amusement and a smile a minute, but in charge of curing cancer, cancer will never have had a better ally than Joe in charge. The Israelis are researching a way of making using nanobots which carry a miniscule flake of gold and they find cancer cells and burrow deep into the cell and even into the nucleus such that a simply radio-frequency signal transmitted days after they were released into the body to seek out only cancer cells and bore into them such that the RF wave causes them to explode and take the cancer, and only the cancer cells with them and leave the surrounding healthy cells almost entirely untouched and the dead cancer cells the body will know how to take out the garbage and the Israelis are seeking more efficient nanobots to make them more affordable and end cancer and genetic diseases and so much more health risks of the past.

 

Well, this will have to do until tomorrow as we are close to half way through. Stay tuned to tomorrow broadcast of how the blogger’s stomach churns with more summaries, snide remarks, guffaws, critiques, reminders of reality and Joe Biden worthy gaffs. Until then my loyal readers who brace the inanities for that rare but priceless kernel of truth, and then there is our commentary giving rare credit where any credit can be found. Until tomorrow.

The Meeting of Futility in Paris

 

One might expect a meeting of about two-hundred nations in Paris, not that long following the horrific terror attacks in Paris, to at least give a moment of silence or other recognition of the deaths of innocents; but their subject was far too serious to waste time on terrorism. There is a planet almost in flames to save! They had to discuss how the developed world could cut their human induced emissions and save the world from disaster while assisting the developing world in the only way that the developed world is capable. They will not be helping them with technology for clean energy production, nor with scrubbing technology to use with any fossil fuel burning in their smokestacks cleaning exhaust smoke lowering their emissions, nor manufacturing systems which are more efficient in their use of electricity or other power; they instead are to produce funding to provide each developing nation with one-hundred-million-dollars per nation and in return the developing nations promise to spend that infusion of cash. One might expect that there would be some demand that this infusion of funds would be used for the development of clean energy, but you would be mistaken. One might expect that the funds would be used for the betterment of the lives of their people, but you would be mistaken. One might expect that the funds would be used for the increase of yields through irrigation or other agricultural technology, but you would be mistaken. One might expect that the funds would be used for the more efficient use of natural resources, but you would be mistaken. One might expect that the funds would be used for the relief of the abject poverty through modernization of manufacturing, but you would be mistaken. So what are the restrictions on this funding, only that the developed nations make sure they pony-up the funds as demanded and the recipients need not even account for the use of these funds.

 

 

world map relative descriptors by wealth and development

 

 

What was the one most interesting event of the entire Paris United Nations Conference on Climate Change was United States Secretary of State Kerry actually saying something, probably without thinking it through, which was as profound as it was honest and thus unexpected from Secretary Kerry when he commented, “…The fact is that even if every American citizen biked to work, carpooled to school, used only solar panels to power their homes, if we each planted a dozen trees, if we somehow eliminated all of our domestic greenhouse gas emissions, guess what, that still wouldn’t be enough to offset the carbon pollution coming from the rest of the world.” Secretary Kerry continued being both brilliant, straight shooting and painfully honest as he added, “If all the industrial nations went down to zero emissions, remember what I just said, all the industrial emissions went down to zero emissions, it wouldn’t be enough, not when more than 65 percent of the world’s carbon pollution comes from the developing world.” The United States may need to find a new Secretary of States as Secretary Kerry appears to have been stricken with an extended period of conscience making him insightful and incapable of making the necessary lies required by the position as proven by his comments until this past week of weakness and which Secretary of State Clinton made a requirement of the position as most of President Obama appointees have been required to perform at presenting lies with a straight face and an earnestness when telling lies that only a psychopath could match. Should Secretary Kerry utter another truth or even a truism, he may be seeking new employment by Sunday.

 

So, once again the results of a climate conference sponsored by the United Nations, also known as the pilfer from the wealthy top fifteen percenters and give to the eighty-five percent around the world, lived up to its name in spades. In numbers of actual nations there are approximately three to one developing nations against developed nations or one-hundred-fifty developing nations against fifty developed nations. This means that every developed nation will be held to pay somewhere around one-third (1/3) of a million dollars such that the remaining one-hundred and fifty developing nations will receive their one-hundred-million dollars each year with no requirements being placed on the levels of pollutants produced by these nations and no restrictions on how the funds are to be used which in too many of the developing nations these monies will simply be squandered by the elitist few closest to the dictator du jour. This is simply another Obama approved giveaway of United States treasury as it will prop up a few unsavory strong arming fascists, and other dictators and Presidents for life to which the United States would never desire or willingly send funding to without some ability for tracing the usage and placing restriction upon which future monies may be denied as there is no use throwing good money after bad as things are not likely to improve until the form of governance is far less corrupt. All that was accomplished at the Paris sponsored United Nations Conference on Climate Change was for the Obama groups and again managing for the one-hundred fifty nations to out vote the fifty developed nations demanding that they contribute to a large fund which will be paid out by the developed nations and paid out to the developing nations with no stated purpose as the developing nations balked at even the mention of placing any restriction of the monies they were to receive.

 

This is the reality of climate change, the advanced world will be forced to make payments to the developing nations and so that eventually these developing nations will bankrupt the developed world’s nations simply by taking that funding which could have provided so much and so many remedies for the people, benefits which would have boosted the economies of these nations getting them off the ground and potentially into space but instead most of these funds will be squandered needlessly and the people of these nations will continue to suffer. The reason their suffering will continue is as simple to see as to why once people were placed on Welfare and all the accompanying programs such as food stamps, Medicaid, and a host of other programs to care for their every need often better than many of those paying for their care received from their employers. When people towards the lower end of the tax scale heard from their neighbors the advantages to not producing and simply living off the government, they joined the ranks of the nonproductive. This, of course, eventually forced the producers to act as it was getting more difficult for them to support the unproductive. In this case there is one difference, once one is rated as a developed nation it is all but impossible to become an undeveloped nation and, as such, there is no going the opposite way, once a developed nation, always a developed nation. The undeveloped nations will actually become very protective of their status as it pays the leaders very well and as the unproductive nations also happen to hold majority status amongst the nations in the United Nations, they control these empowered organizations such as the climate control, industrial development funding and any other tag they can assign themselves which requires the developed world to give largess in funding to the undeveloped but developing world in order to assist them in becoming a developed nation. Of course no nation from the undeveloped world ever crosses the threshold and becomes a developed nation, and they see to it that not even Greece can become an undeveloped nation though they have given it a good go and are now being treated by the European Union as if they had succeeded. Once a nation goes on the dole from its more economically productive neighbors it will never manage to make its way to productive as it will no longer be paid for their lack of efforts. Success is guaranteed to never occur because then they would be tapped to pay their former friendly nations who turned on them as soon as they were capable of paying them which meant more for them and too bad for the unlucky nation which succeeded. Imagine this, welfare at the United Nations representing a perfect model for why larger and larger segments of the developed world’s populations end up on government support rolls each year and the number of workers supporting those payments shrinks and may soon fall below two workers per recipient which is probably when a revolt by the working will take place as for them it will become easier to be unproductive and soon you have the fifteen percent supporting the eighty-five percent just as it is with the nations at the United Nations. Once the unproductive can force the productive to support them and also make it impossible for a producer to become a nonproducer, then you have the slavery of the working class, or as the United Nations is calling it, support of the underprivileged world which just cannot seem, no matter how much funding they receive and they are constantly voting for more, more, more yet never showing any progress towards joining the developed world, imagine that if you will. The secret will be to watch the nations described as “in transition” to see how many, if any, make it into the classification of developed world and I am betting except for those in Europe, none of the rest will ever quite make that transition willingly.

International Hypocrisy

 

Paris, France was the scene of a horrific terrorist assaults which targeted people at various locations and disparate functions murdering at least one-hundred-thirty people and wounded over three-hundred more some of which still in questionable serious condition. Almost immediately world leaders met in the French Capital for a climate change convention. Many national leaders, President Obama amongst them, when queried as to what is the greatest challenge facing the world was answered that it was climate change which may cause coastal area flooding as well as stronger, more severe and increased number of such storms. President Obama was amongst those who refused to mention the horrific assault on Parisians by Islamic State terror operatives. Such a response simply boggles one’s mind that the attacks did not even warrant a mention as if the planet was on the brink of disaster from Global Climate Change.

 

Here is what we do know. First is that climate does indeed change naturally as we had snowball earth as well as a number of ice ages and a year without a summer after the eruption of a volcano in Indonesia. We know that the resultant changes in the climate are based on models and these models are considered accurate in their prediction of the weather at the end of the century despite models made by the same brilliant minds cannot tell me if it will be raining next Sunday or will it be conducive for a large family picnic. We know that government monies are only available for researchers’ efforts who believe that global climate change is a real and immediate problem. Further, if one can also place the blame for these changes on mankind and prove it is Anthropomorphic Climate Change without using those models which have been proven to start with the desired result and then working their way back to where we are now to grow their formula, then some might take their arguments seriously instead of relegating them to the junk science producing the predictable result demanded by the government paying for that desired result. Despite this effort to push Anthropomorphic Climate Change there are a fair number of scientists who claim that they cannot predict with complete certainty the actual effects of climate change but can most assuredly claim and prove that it is not caused by mankind and that the amount of so-called human influence is negligible and that the entirety of climate change scare is just that, a scare tactic to have the people give over to government control over much of our lives. They see Anthropomorphic Climate Change as simply a route to new laws and restriction on personal freedom of our lives such as how far from our work we are permitted to reside, carbon taxes, carbon credits which are given the less advanced nations to use when getting more wealthy nations to provide them with monies for these credits which can then in turn give the poorer nations to develop clean energy systems. In all honesty, Anthropomorphic Climate Change is a redistribution scheme dressed up in a pretty package developed by climate change proponents and those naysayers are just against poorer nations and want them to only produce carbon based fuels. When this is their argument the redistribution of wealth becomes absolutely evidenced leaving no room for other arguments.

 

 

Paris Terror Stadium Attack CNN Breaking Live Coverage

Paris Terror Stadium Attack CNN Breaking Live Coverage

 

 

Meanwhile there was a shocking assault upon the people of Paris, France by the Islamic State (previously known as IS, ISIL, ISIS) and we are informed that there will be further such operations as the opportunities present themselves. Further, Israel is once again experiencing a wave of knife attacks, vehicular homicides, shootings and fire-bombings. There were at least two attacks in the past twenty-four hours, and this probably holds true for whenever you are reading this article as it was when it was written. There has been another curious series of events concerning the coverage these assaults have received. There are a number of separate results of these assaults, the person assaulted dies, multiple people are attacked with differing injuries from light and treated at scene to those pronounced dead at the scene and all various categories admitted to hospitals. Then there are three other broader categories. Attacker succeeds in their attack and escapes. The attacker is caught likely with non-life threatening injuries. Interestingly enough these two varieties of attacks meet with almost no coverage in media coverage outside Israel. Then there is the final type which is where the attack is carried out and the terrorist is killed or severely injured and fears are the terrorist might not survive. There was this news story titled “Two Palestinians killed during new stabbing attacks”. Then there was the original CNN headline, “Palestinians shot boarding kids’ bus” since changed to “Armed Palestinians shot after trying to board bus with children on board.” Such misleading coverage is not accidental but rather slanted against Israel and is not limited to CNN or the New York Times.

 

We were given a glimpse of the world for those select few who are members of the White House Press Club when Helen Thomas was interviewed by a Rabbi, she was told he wanted to record the top stories about the Presidential media to get a feel for the moods and views for his writings when asked about the Middle East when she responded curtly that the Jews should, “get the hell out of Palestine and return and go home to Germany, Poland or the United States.” Many claimed this was the ugliest side of Helen Thomas they had ever seen. Those comments cost her the position she had on the White House Press Corps, awards both that she had been expected to receive or had been named after her all had to be reassessed, renamed, or find a new presenter. Now it is starting to appear that major newspaper editorial boards and network news programs have started to support the blame Israel as the problem and if only there were no Jewish State then there would be no senseless violence and peace would cover the area like a blanket of warm fuzzes. Anybody honestly believing that the troubles in Syria and surrounding nations in the MENA area exist due to Israel, they need to have a reality check and if they still do not see a problem of blaming everything on Israel they should be granted government paid for mental assistance. Any glimpse into the Middle East which includes North Africa (thus MENA) finds unlimited and open warfare in Syria, Libya, Iraq, Yemen, Nigeria, Kenya, Turkey with the Kurds, and others with terrorism a threat everywhere.

Blaming Israel for the major breakouts, which are plainly other national struggles often the result of the Shiite/Sunni divide which pits Iran and Syria against the majority of the rest the Muslim nations, is plainly as ludicrous as it is bald-faced lies. The disingenuous accusations targeting Israel largely pushed by Secretary of State Kerry when claiming that the Hebdo and Hyper Cachet kosher market were understandable and these latest murders are not is a frightening revelation. With such lost credibility Secretary Kerry should be removed from the efforts to pound a solution out of Israel while allowing the Palestinians claim any evil they wish on Israel and allow them to remain as the final word is sheer hypocrisy. Secretary Kerry was not the sole person to differentiate between the broad strike and January’s more targeted strike. Interviews of Parisians in the aftermath of the November 13, 2015, terror attacks noted the stark difference that this time those killed by Islamist terrorists weren’t just Jews or provocative cartoonists. Quite a number of those interviewed when asked about the Charlie Hebdo or Hyper Casher attack compared to the Friday November 13, 2015 attacks were insistent that after the Charlie Hebdo or Hyper Casher they did not feel a sense of threat or danger to themselves. Many expressed it as, ‘Those were simply attacks on cartoonists who went too far and insulted Mohammad and the Hyper Cacher is a kosher market so it could be expected for those people to be struck by terrorists, but there was no reason before the 13th of November to feel that terrorism would strike any closer to home as we were not crazed cartoonists nor were we Jews.’ Hypocrisy such as this should signal to the Jews of Paris if not France and France if not Western Europe and Eastern Europe if not all of Europe or perhaps the world over this may be the clarion call telling you that there is nowhere on this earth where people will not blame you for any terror strike on your neighborhoods and excuse such attacks as they did not involve normal people, only Jews. The average people the world over are once again drawing a line between what happens to them and those same things happening to the Jews. They write off those assaults and other degradations and dangers which happen to Jews are acceptable because the Jews somehow deserve all that befalls them while attacks upon them are completely unjustifiable. The old adage of society good, Jew evil, society innocent and thus clean of sin, Jews somehow guilty and full of sins which is why they deserve scorn and death and as long as you attack Jews there will be deserved.

 

 

A four picture montage of John Scary Kerry at his long-faced best. Hopefully once he is done failing and flailing at being Secretary of State we will be done with John Kerry. His ineptitude and at times traitorous actions have shamed the United States ever since his treacherous testimony before the Senate accusing his supposed, though never in Kerry’s mind or heart, fellow soldiers equating them with the ruthlessness of Genghis Khan and his opinions have little changed with the years.

Your safety will not be protected by these societies and when they face the choice between sacrificing you and your family against their hides and their families, guess which is easily fed to the monsters. We have played this game before with these kinds of Europeans before and it did not turn out all that well. Over time we have covered the idea that Israel is the Jewish People’s last and best refuge including but not exclusively in these articles in chronological order published April 15, 2011 titled “If Not Israel Where do the Jews Belong?”, published April 2, 2012 titled “Israel is the Jews Last and Final Chance”, published January 4, 2014 titled “Importance of Israel to Jews Today” and published April 21, 2014, titled ”Safest Place for Jews is in Israel?”. The safe refuge that is Israel will soon be the only place of actual safety for the Jewish People. There will be those Jews who feel that such would be too much of an inconvenience but once they have visited Israel they will find their place in this magical land of miracles. My coming to Israel was decided when I was nine and made myself two promises, to care for my parents until they no longer needed assistance or was released from that promise and then make Aliyah. These remained dormant in the back of my mind until the death of my little sister and then the final decision came when I was released from the former predicating task and my move to Israel was the only thing I could think of accomplishing, and here I am, in Israel. Hashem in Torah spoke of the three exiles, the first was Egypt, the second Babylonian and the final one the Jewish People were to be cast throughout the lands of Earth such that they were in every culture and from there Hashem promised to drag them all home to Israel. This miracle was to occur as either the Jewish People became very much religious and Zionist or they were to be assimilated such that they would be indistinguishable from their neighbors as in much the United States. The crazy thing is Jewish sages always claimed that it would be one or the other but there are more Jews following the religious demands than ever in history and there is a large number of Jews assimilated and seemingly completely immersed in the culture of the nation where they reside. But anti-Israel then included with it anti-Zionism and we are witnessing the onslaught of the final and unavoidable end, the anti-Semitism, full-fledged and overt anti-Semitism reaching slowly but inexorably across Europe and beginning to take root in the United States. This is the start of the return, the reinvigoration of the dry bones.
