Answering My Most Asked Question

 

More than any other question is one few would expect to top my readership and friend list of questions. So, with no further buildup, here it is. Will there be a civil war in the United States. The answer in a single word is more than likely not. Much of the violence which appears to have plagued the United States has been in the major metropolitan areas and a few smaller but still main cities. These are areas which, even those in the most conservative states, are largely blue regions, also known as largely liberal and leftist areas where the Democrats basically rule the roost. As far as anti-fa instigated violence, it is mostly committed within cities and often against easily recognized chain stores such as McDonalds, Starbucks, the Gap and other smaller unit stores. They usually do not target major chain stores such as Sears, IKEA, Nordstroms or other stores which have security as the anti-fa people are interested in causing unopposed damage and violence with the exception being their attacking conservatives at Second Amendment, Republican candidate or similar rallies where they expect to be opposed by largely unarmed people. When the main people behind the violence are carefully choosing their targets in order to minimize the chance of real pushback then there is little if any possibility for any confrontation to escalate into that vital flash-point from which general violence would result. But this diagnosis holds solely through the next elections which will be Presidential Elections.

 

With the next Presidential elections, there will probably be additional violence above and beyond these elections. But that will still not escalate beyond the cities in which the problem will continue to exist. The real problem could come, if there is to be any problematic escalation, after the elections should President Trump win reelection carrying the Electoral College but losing the popular vote by a more than what people on the left believe reasonable margin. This has occurred before with Rutherford B. Hayes in 1876 losing the popular vote by about 4% but winning the Electoral College by 19 votes, Benjamin Harrison in 1888 winning the Electoral College by 65 votes while losing the popular vote by 90,596, and George W. Bush in 2000 where he won the Electoral College by a slim five votes after a contentious series of recounts and hanging chads in Florida and Al Gore won the popular vote by 543,895 votes. There are stories that President Trump also lost the popular vote but there are also stories which claim he won the popular vote once all votes had been tabulated so it is safe to say that it was very close. The thing is a President can win the Electoral College by winning a number of smaller states as well as Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Michigan or Wisconsin by narrow margins while the Democrat had a healthy showing while losing Texas and took over two thirds or three quarters of the popular vote in California, New York, Oregon, Washington and across most of New England thus having a very large popular vote victory. This is close to what happened in this past election except the margin in the Democrat victories in the high population states was closer to 55% to 60% and not too overwhelming. But if the above were to occur, it would be possible for the elected President under the Electoral College to lose the popular vote by tens of millions which would cause an uproar, especially in the high population states and in virtually every major city breaking out in rioting and worse. How serious such might become would depend heavily on the actions of the mayors as if they, as happened in the riots in Baltimore after the unfortunate death of a person in police custody, decided to order the police to simply attempt to contain the rioting while allowing the riots to play out, that could cause the President to use federal power to end the riots which would appear to be completely out of control. That might cause an even greater amount of disruption as it might be interpreted as being overt and being used to punish the people who did not support them in the election causing even greater violence. Where such might lead is anybody’s guess.

 

We still doubt that a civil war is likely in the United States unless a President decided to impose martial law and suspend elections, then there would be people fearing an end to the democratic base of government and an end to the Republic. As long as government continues under normal operation, the majority of the American public would continue to have faith that the system was still functioning, and only if the electoral system appeared to be being ignored or completely suspended would there be sufficient cause for universal upheaval. The reason there would not be a civil war in the United States short of a President usurping power by such actions as suspending the Congress or dismissal of the Supreme Court replacing these Constitutionally established institution with the rule of the President, the one person, then the concept of a nation ruled by law and not man would be turned upside down replacing it with a nation ruled by a person and not the law. This is something most of the American people would not stand by and allow to happen. Also, should a President suspend the powers of the people provided by the Bill of Rights, this too would be going a step too far and likely to cause a general upheaval from the population. Were such to be done in a slower series of measures limiting freedoms through slow steps using laws and the legal system to end freedoms, then it might be possible to bring an end to elected governance and have a dictatorial takeover of the United States. Such an erosion of freedoms might begin with laws against ‘hate speech’ which could be utilized to shut down expressions which were against the sitting government and thus allow only those supporting the strict policies of those in power to be expressed. This could be followed by restricting assembly of groups where such speech and positions which opposed those in power from occurring. Then, should those in power have such a control over the powers of government on all levels including almost every state and large city, the people who hold opinions which might unseat those in power could be brought up on charges of holding hateful positions and even begin to have criminal charges brought against opponents for having hateful thoughts. Once it can be established that people can be arrested and charged with thought crimes, then nobody would be safe and those in power would have complete and total power. They could move against the opposing party starting with their representatives in the Congress and on the Supreme Court replacing them with only people having the approved opinions and now you have a hierarchy where a select group of people holding what is defined as correct thought are the sole holders of power. This is something which would have been inconceivable in the United States just ten to twenty years ago. The problem on the horizon is that an ever-growing number of youth coming from many of the major colleges when queried if hate speech should be illegal, agree and say that free speech should only come with limitations and restrictions. This is a frightening reality which if it should continue signals the end of the American Experiment. Such a series of events starting from this and spreading to all corners of political power would cause a civil war with uncertain results.

 

Should sufficient officers be selected, as Generals need be approved by the Senate as they are selected presumably by the President or at least the executive branch, hold the same beliefs that free speech need not be a total right and that only certain approved speech should be free, then there has started a slippery slope to a dictatorial governance. This would not be the kind of dictatorship where one person was chosen and no further elections were held, this would be a form of dictatorship where all government positions, even elected positions, would be restricted to those who were the most correct in their ideas and thoughts. This is the opposite of what the Founding Fathers had envisioned but by simply adopting limitations of freedom of thought could come into existence. By restricting thoughts and expression through speech to a certain set of politically approved ideas and concepts, then one has also subjugated the media and limited even what religious leaders would be permitted to preach. From that point, it would be a short jump before people would be rounded up and sent for additional schooling, otherwise known as reeducation camps. Soon after such has taken place, we can predict what the next step would be, and that would be limitations on religious thought and then practice. The first ones to be selected for eradication would likely be the same as has always been the first religion for subjugation or attempted for eradication, the Jews. They may be selected along with other groups such as Evangelical Christians has been one such group which some claim would be included with the Jews should the United States turn to the dark side. The reasoning on these predictions are predicated on the belief that as the mainstay of Judeo-Christian ethos, these two groups could be considered the largest threat to be the mainstay against far leftist ideology and these theories all believe that such a thought based governance would be extreme leftist styled fascism. As such, those against abortions on demand, euthanasia, open borders, no corporate profits over half a percent, open work hours, fixed incomes, extending public lands, elimination of private vehicles, elimination of fossil fuels and whatever else one could conceive from the far-far-far-left on top of free speech as long as it agrees with the government and a similarly restricted media, after all, don’t we all love Big Brother, and doing away with privacy and full surveillance would also be implemented just to detect even the slightest indication that one was outside of group-think policies, this is where such would eventually lead. This could only be established slowly over about two decades, and that is about all that would be required as the job has been half way to accomplished with the ideas supported by far too many college graduates. The nerds would be tolerated as long as they simply quietly made everything work and minded their manners and were not too obviously nerdy.

 

Many people think that such an end for the United States is so far from being the America of the past two and a half centuries that it would be impossible and might be surprised if they were to become aware of what is taught in the finest of higher education, and that is slipping ever so slowly but inevitable into high school and even further. Eventually, the concept which has already begun in some region where they are not teaching children to read independently but only of approved readings. How, you ask? They are not teaching phonics and sounding out words from their spelling but whole word recognition, which works fine for words such as enough, but for most words that would not be the preferred means of reading new words. But they do not desire your reading new words because words represent ideas and ideas are very dangerous. Thoughts lead to ideas and if a child can read anything, then they can have thoughts which are uncontrolled and then they might have uncontrolled ideas which lead to undesired conclusions which then may cause difficulties, especially if they are able to express them and spread these concepts. Thus, through this new age teaching methods using whole word recognition, children grow up with limited vocabularies and thus have free thought stolen from their lives. They have a new form of math that they teach. They teach children to solve equations the way a computer might be good at but which leaves the child with no ability to ever learn algebra, let alone calculus and higher mathematics. They are taught to guess and then make another guess and if that second guess comes closer to the desired answer, go further until they guess and are further from the answer and then reverse direction. I can think of numerous problems where this method might drive a child insane. This also only works well for equations with one variable, as soon as you add a second variable the number of answers could easily become infinite as it is for the very difficult equation where y=x3-4×2+6 which has a strange graph and uncountable correct answers (see graph below). For any value of y from -3 to +6 there are multiple answers for x which makes guessing rather difficult. That was not even a difficult equation as there are trigonometric equations where there would be multiple solutions or no solution depending on the values for x and y such as circles and ovals. But this is not as earthshakingly important as what they do not require and in too many schools do not teach at all. That is our next stop on this tour de force.

History is not required for a high school diploma. Not just world history, but they do not teach American history and even recent history such as the study of the two World Wars or the American Civil War. They no longer require a civics course or a course that includes and explains the make up of the American government. They do not study the Constitution, the Bill of Rights or the Declaration of Independence, so do not even bother to ask about the Magna Carta. When they did finally have a single six-week course in American history and government, these were all placed together, they never studied the Founding Fathers or any of the so-called old white men outside of the great emancipator who was included with Fredrick Douglass as they were mostly studying the Native Americans and Americans of color. In English, they read largely the writings of people of color and none of Shakespeare, Dumas, Dickens, Mark Twain, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Herman Melville, Louisa M. Alcott, Mary Shelly, Dostoevsky or any of the classics because those had been taught already and it was necessary that the youth be introduced to writers of color. Perhaps the school district where my kids were educated was more progressive than most, or maybe they were just fortunate to have enlightened teachers, all I know is the teachers would dismiss my questions as ignorant and lacking depth and I just did not understand their new methods. This was nowhere more true than the mathematics teachers who basically told me that the methods I had been taught were the reason mathematics was so difficult and children hated it so much because the old ways just were not fun and they were not going to turn children off from math. One even said that if they got the wrong answer but could explain their reasoning, then they would get full credit. That included the reason of I guessed and it seemed close enough, as I actually asked that I was so frustrated by the eighth grade with the mathematics teachers. They are no longer educating the children and because of their unions, a teacher is next to impossible to fire once they have taught and received tenure. I can only try to imagine how future education will be and can only hold out hope that there will be machines teaching which realize that educated humans are easier for them to deal with and as such, they will actually educate children. Perhaps this education or lack thereof has been designed such that when everything falls apart, nobody will know any better and it will all appear to be normal and orderly no matter how discombobulated governance becomes.

President Trump Asks Whether Western Civilization Respects Itself

 

“The fundamental question of our time is whether the West has the will to survive. Do we have the confidence in our values to defend them at any cost? Do we have enough respect for our citizens to protect our borders? Do we have the desire and the courage to preserve our civilization in the face of those who would subvert and destroy it?” This was the essence of the question President Trump put to Europe and to America. In the last few days, we asked what happens to the world if America does not answer the call when the sirens warning of destruction sound. Trump asked Europe if they are even going to sound the sirens or are they going to die whimpering like a beaten dog which has lost all hope. Now, all that is left is to wait for the answer from Europe.

 

The other question is whether the people of Europe can even recognize those willing to fight or are they so content to suckle on the teat of government that they would lose all rather than fight for the survival of their children. But that is the problem, the leaders of Europe have no children and the people are not having children. The Europeans have given up on their civilization long ago when their reproductive rate fell below replacement rate, below even a mere two children per married woman. Of course when a goodly number of your married couples are same-sex wedlocks there will not be children and the remainder see nothing in life worthy of even bothering to produce a next generation as it is too much bother, then your civilization dies. Europe answered this question long ago when they cast off Judeo-Christianity for socialistic hedonism without consequences. At least when humankind last practiced the barbarity of hedonism, there was a byproduct, children, but modern hedonism has found a way around that byproduct with birth control and abortion. The only conclusion the data tells is that Europe will allow its native populations to decrease steadily until their numbers of defenders is insufficient to protect them from conquest, and then the rest will be slaughtered or will submit and die silently curled in the fetal position in the corner. This is the subconscious, if not deliberate, choice that the people of Europe have chosen. So the new question becomes, is there an antidote, an answer to this situation? Fortunately, that answer is yes, but it will depend upon those few who have families, healthy families with children.

The disease has run deeply into the currents of your lives and made your people soft and susceptible to a sickness born of self-conceit and believing that everything begins and ends, especially ends, with you. If this is how you live your life, then all you believe you to be will end with you and after you die there will be no child left to carry on. Blood Sweat & Tears nearly got it right as they believed that you would have at least one child, but alas you have chosen not to even produce one child so replace one with no in the song below and dance, that is what you do, right, dance? The need will now fall to the next two generations, the ones alive today and the first is reaching their early and mid twenties as of this writing and need to decide now and the next have reached their teens and will soon make that fateful choice because it cannot wait any longer than that. Will you live a life based in Judeo-Christian Biblical values or will you emulate the older generation and party until the bill comes due, because the bill always comes due. This bill will enslave all those who follow for centuries to come. True, should you not have children, what difference does that make to you, you will not have anybody left to pay the bill, and then the collection becomes nastier. Oh, and one other little item, the leftists have been lying to you. The world is not overpopulated and the room running out. Take a drive or ride a bus or train to the next large city and halfway there wake-up and see the empty spaces. In the United States we call it flyover country because the “really important people” all live on the two coasts or in Chicago. There is more than enough room for the next ten generations on the planet and by then we will also have Mars and maybe beyond, so be plentiful and multiply.

 

 

The initial answer to the sickness afflicting Europe is to have children as the illness has a main symptom, childlessness. That is the symptom which will kill Europe and Europe is on its way to a glorious and dark death, but many of you worship the darkness, you wear black, your fingernail polish is black, your eye makeup is black, your cheeks are made to appear hollowed out and dark and your whole outlook is darkness, death and the whole Gothic look and culture, the Vampire Cults, an entire culture bathed in black, and that is a healthy lifestyle choice, the anti-Heaven desperation and depravity of the dark world and all without consequence because just like those before you, you use birth control pills or abortion when you “make a mistake.” News flash, it is not a mistake and it is more than a baby, it is a future but you are so locked into yourself that future does not matter, but who will be there to care for you when the look finally wears out around age fifty? Nobody, and that is the problem.

If for a moment you think that the immigrants being imported by your childless leaders like Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, British Prime Minister Theresa May, and Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni, French President Emmanuel Macron, Luxembourg Prime Minister Xavier Bettel, Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker et. al. are the solution to the problem, then you are the reason; as you keep electing the wrong leaders. Your leaders are no example of a healthy culture and until the people show signs of life and a future of life, a sign such as electing leaders with a stake in the future, leaders with children and normal families, until then Europe is doomed. The answer is to look back and remember how Europe became the preeminent culture which almost owned the world and remember the hardships of the past, because should Europe fall the continent will visit those hardships and far worse in the future. Oh, but that’s right, why should you care, you will have passed on and you have no children who will live in that horrific future. That is the outlook which placed the youth of Europe to not marry and raise a family, and by youth we mean under age forty or possibly even under fifty, we do not mean under twenty and especially not twelve and under. The future filled with darkness is far closer than your leaders are telling you. Actually, they are not telling you, they are lying their faces off denying there is any problem, and that is a valid point if you live in a gated community ringed by men armed with machine guns and riding in Land Rovers armored-up and prepared for anything. But those are the few, the enormously wealthy, and your childless leadership.

You may very likely have the solution handbook right there in your house and hopefully not just on a shelf with the rest of your books, or worse, stuck forgotten in some nondescript drawer or pantry. The answers you seek to save your society are in the Bible. The easiest of the answers comes early in the Old Testament, the place where the majority of the answers lie. The first answer is found all through the Book of Genesis as Hashem made this an obvious command to every generation from Adam and Eve to Noah to Abraham and his children and grandchildren. We decided this was the best quote to adapt for the purposes here, and in Genesis 35:11 we read, “And God said to him, ‘I am the Almighty God; be fruitful and multiply…’” That is as simple a command as it gets. Hashem promised further in this verse, kings and nations to be born from his offspring.

 

All we are seeking today is the survival of Western culture and civilization, the survival of the culmination of some of the noblest of ideas from the centuries of development and thought. The question is simple, does Western philosophy of the nobleness of the spirit of the human being deserve to be preserved or shall it fall before barbarism and lay dormant for centuries possibly to never rise again? That is the question before Europe and, after Europe, if Europe fails and falls, to the United States and, should they fail, to Israel, the progenitor of all that followed. Will it fall to Israel to save the refinement which was started with Moses and then tempered by the swords and hammers of Greece and then Rome and then the ages which followed and the Renaissance and the Scientific and Industrial Revolutions to finally be purified in 1776 in a pair of documents which came of the American Revolution, the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights. Yes, the Constitution of the United States is a one singular document on how to govern, but without the people to govern, it becomes useless. So, will Europe pull through or will it be the United States which saves all that is precious taught way back to Abraham on Mount Moriah or will it rely on Israel. Hashem will defend all at Israel. Before that, people will need to decide for themselves if their civilization deserves to survive. That is the other lesson in that handbook, you are responsible for the future and only you can make it a brighter and better future, but first you have to take the righteous steps to make a future possible.

When Hatreds Blind the World

 

The interesting thing about Mahmoud Abbas’s string of lies was that the media referred to it as a monumental speech which set straight the record and framed the problems which are still perplexing the Palestinian and Israeli sides and defined what is needed from Israel in cooperation instead of contention and hindrance to solve this problem once and for all. Let us start with the first lie and leave it there as if one wishes to suffer their minds, they can read it here, as he began with claiming Israel was defiling the al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount. Let us show you a series of pictures of how the Arab Palestinians are utilizing the al-Aqsa Mosque and you decide who the defiler is. Personally, we believe if one uses a religious building to store rocks, two-by-fours and other instruments for rioting and assaulting people they are defiling the place of worship, not the people targeted by these thugs.

But desecration of their own al-Aqsa Mosque is far from the only desecrations attributable to the Palestinians. They also love to destroy the Jewish holy sites within their territories especially Joseph’s Tomb, Kever Yoseph, in Hevron. These pictures below are from several times when the tomb was set afire and the last is a montage of Jews praying at Joseph’s Tomb after they spent hours reconstructing the holy site. It was set lite the very next night as a holy Jewish site was considered an anathema which must be rectified and cleansed with fire, thus the constant burning of Joseph’s Tomb by Arab Palestinians.

When the Jordanians gained control over Judea, Samaria and the eastern parts of Jerusalem, they destroyed and desecrated Jewish graves and holy sites as well as cemeteries using the grave markers for building latrines and as paving stones expressly so they would be walked on thus disgracing them daily. Every Synagogue was either destroyed or defaced before being used in some manner which heaped disgrace and defilement upon the building. Now the world wishes for Israel to return these very same holy sites, buildings and cemeteries over to Palestinian rule which will immediately destroy, deface and defile these wonderfully restored places anew. One of the main truths ignored by the world is that only under Israeli rule has Jerusalem been open to all religions for prayer and all religious building been respected and allowed to be restored or repaired including not solely Jewish holy sites but also Christian, Islamic and if we include all of the lands under Israeli control we can include Baha’I which have holy sites within Israel while their religion is denied freedoms in Iran where the religion originated. Israel has never claimed to own the Christian sites on the Temple Mount or in Bethlehem or elsewhere in Israel as Arab Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has done concerning the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in the video below.

 

 

Let us get back to Abbas’s speech. He asks rhetorically “Does Israel want one state?”

 

We will give it as disrespectful, but more honest, an answer than was the question. Yes, Israel wants one state and we understand you desire the Jews to have no state whatsoever and for Israel to be erased and Palestine put in its place on the graves of the over six million Jews and the Christians, Baha’I, Buddhists, Hindus and followers of any religion other than Islam. We refuse to allow our throats to be cut by you or anyone else as we have returned to our nation and reestablished our state and see your claims as hollow as your homeland is in the Arabia Peninsula. That is your homeland and the world is aware of this but is willing to sacrifice Israel for an additional five minutes of peace while you and the Islamic world celebrates the victory. After that the world will receive your next demand, probably for the return of Andalusia and all of a sudden Madrid will become the third holiest city in all Islam as you will have Jerusalem and will ignore it and likely return to using the Dome of the Rock as a dumping site as the pretentions will no longer need to be kept up. Fortunately we are not about to roll over and die just for your amusement and we will prevail which will possibly save the world by granting them sufficient time to come to their senses.

 

Abbas was full of question and the next was, “So, who then is perpetrating ethnic cleansing?”

 

Well, that one is a nice softball slow pitch like the kind given the favorite son running for reelection in the United States. The ethnic cleansing is being done by your fellow Muslims and you would be doing so as well should you manage to gain the assistance of the rest of the world in disarming the Jews in Israel. Let us look at the news around the world. The Yazidis were being annihilated with their women being raped until they became unresponsive which killed the fun if they did not fight so the real men could punch and force their submission, then they were shot or killed through torture or by some other means which might further amuse the ISIS troops. There have been the rapes in Germany, Britain, France and elsewhere which took in the refugees and other Muslims who were refused by Saudi Arabia and almost every other Islamic nation, perhaps they knew something the West will need to learn the hard way. The West is learning though the leftist leadership refuses to admit to there being any problem. But talking about ethnic cleansing, how about the cleansing of the Jews throughout the Islamic empire across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) or the Christians of Bethlehem or Lebanon or the Kurds who, fortunately for them, fought back quite successfully or the cleansing by Sunni of Shiite or Shiites of Sunnis? When it comes to ethnic cleansing the Muslims are equal opportunity killers.

 

Reading or listening to what Abbas said, implied, intimated or simply left as presumably understood one will realize that he is demanding that Palestine be built on the graves of all Israel. He claims Beersheba, the entire Negev, the Galilee, Jerusalem, Hevron, Ashdod, Ashkelon, Akko and all of Israel which the Jews occupied from 1948, or simply since the founding of Israel it was all occupied lands. He also claimed that all International Law supports the founding of Palestine on all of its historic lands. He is mixing apples and oranges as he claims the entirety of the British Mandate for Palestine should be Palestine. One need wonder if Jordan is aware of this which we bet after the attempted coup to overthrow the King and Parliament of Jordan during the black September attacks that they know the Palestinians are likely to go after them after Israel. So, Israel is saving Jordan as well. How absolutely magnanimous! Israel is just so kind to care for their neighbor.

 

The influx of Muslim refugees to the West is apparently exporting numerous Islamists who are already attacking using terrorist tactics. There are also the rape squads which Angela Merkel attempted to play down when they used the New Year’s celebrations as their own personal hunting fields molesting women at choke points such as subway, train and other public transportation stations where they could easily trap women on their way to celebrations. Initially the police refused to report on the problem and in many cases attempted to talk the women out of filing reports. The media played along ignoring the problem until it became obvious that there had been mass numbers of attacks. Paris has felt the Islamic rage numerous times since the beginning of the importing of refugees from across MENA. Recently there have been numerous attacks by Muslims across the United States though the authorities do everything in their power to cover up the links the perpetrators have with Islam. These attacks are saddening to anyone who believes that Western society had brought into the world civility and progress to a better life and established a moral society despite the apparent abuses of the freedoms by some at the margins. Rights were enjoyed by people from disparate backgrounds and all religions were protected and granted free exercise. Even people choosing no religion were protected and permitted their belief in something other than one of the traditional religions allowing for agnostics and atheists. Sure these freedoms also permitted some relations which were discouraged or forbidden by most religions but these people were granted the identical freedoms to live as they chose without fear of persecution.

 

There was progress made on numerous human fronts where a more humane world was the result. Slavery was abolished. Women were recognized as equals to men in virtually all manner and professions. Sexual orientation is no longer a taboo which could have a person ostracized from society because of not being part of the majority. Minorities became protected under the law and all were granted the right to vote, run for office, own property, work in any civilian profession, live wherever they pleased, given equal access to loans, equal consideration for credit and an almost endless list of rights and freedoms. These freedoms are now being used to subvert those very freedoms and replace the liberal and open societies with Sharia where a woman is restricted to half that of a man; a woman must belong to a man in some manner be it wife, daughter, sister or concubine; women must wear concealing clothing which depersonalizes them; religion is restricted to only Islam; and democracy is an anathema. The Western world is inviting into their house a disruption which will awaken them from their slumber; and if the world is to have any hope of remaining free and survive, we must hope that once more the immortal words attributed to Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto when he learned that Pearl Harbor was bombed hours before the Declaration of war was presented in Washington D.C. come true in our day, “I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.” Wake up America, the world needs you now. We will know soon if the United States can be awakened in time, or late as even late they can pull the world out of this predicament it doesn’t even realize has stricken them. Leaving this job to just Israel might be asking a bit much, we have held on this long, can we get a little credit here?
