A Message For The Madame Secretary

Note:  This is not my typical post where I try to educate my readers….this one is more of a personal matter.

No secret that I do not support Clintons…neither Bubba or Hillary…..one has crapped all over our society and the other is waiting her turn to do so.  Most my readers also know that I support the BDS Movement against Israel…..and Clinton is not a supporter and has sent a letter to the founder of the Movement. (read it below)…..

It appears that she wants all the boycott and stuff to end......I guess her Israeli masters need her to earn her money and help heading off the Movement.....

There are a couple of states that are trying to make in illegal to boycott Israel....I sent them a letter basically telling them to "F*ck Off"....NO one can tell me what to spend or not to spend my money om.....

But back to Madame Secretary......she is serious about stopping the Movement for holding Israel responsible for their actions.....actions like jailing children for Facebook criticisms or barring Arab-Israeli PMs from taking their seats in Parliament, etc......

Her words......

On the eve of her religious denomination’s quadrennial meeting, Hillary Clinton wrote a letter to Jewish agency heads saying she opposes the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement targeting Israel that the meeting will consider.

“I believe that BDS seeks to punish Israel and dictate how the Israelis and Palestinians should resolve the core issues of their conflict. This is not the path to peace,” Clinton wrote in a letter Monday (May 9) to David Sherman, chair of the Israel Action Network, and Susan K. Stern, vice chair of the Jewish Federations of North America.

Bet this person has no idea what the USS Liberty is all about either....

Madame Secretary...what about the American weapons being used to kill and maiming the Israeli citizens?

So basically....I have one thing to saying to Hillary Clinton......

You see my mother never told me how to spend my money and I am sure as Hell not going to let you, Madame Secretary.

(A copy of this has been sent to Hillary Clinton and if she wants to rebut then she may do so here for all to see.)

The War Delusion

Can anyone tell me the name of the last American killed in Iraq?  Don’t give yourself a finger cramp hitting the Google button….his name was Lt. David A, Bauders of the 176th Engineering Company…..and it has been only a couple of days since his death….

Since I study war and its causes and solutions I have been impressed that the Iraq War of 2003 has become a campaign issue…..most of the interests is solely for political gain but the fact that some are talking about the most moronic decision that has been made in the last 25 years is enlightening…………

We know that candidate Bernie Sanders was a NO vote for going to war in Iraq…..there were others….even some Republicans were against the move to war.

I recently read an op-ed by one of those GOPers that voted against the war…..it is an interesting piece and it is quite enlightening……it should be a template for ALL Congress when war is on the table……

Our next president must choose peace and prosperity over war and debt.

But I am not optimistic with this election……it will be just move of the same….or “Same sh*t, Different Day”……sort of thing.  Sadly, if Americans are not war weary after 15 years of war then they may never feel the need to end this crap.  More young Americans to die for no reason other than hubris.

All I can hope is that my anti-war voice will not die with me…..my granddaughter is showing an interest in my writings….she would be my choice to continue my work……

Americans Are Idiots About Terrorism

For the most part…..the title is accurate.

I have been trying to help my readers understand terrorism…..there is more to the act than some crazed person killing indiscriminately……I admit that I am met with some resistance because most people want the concept boiled down to a one sentence explanation……only ignorance would make someone look for the simplest definition.

Shortly after the last terrorist attack in Belgium I read an article written in Red State and yes I realize that it is an influential conservative site….but no matter where it comes from a good informative article is a good informative article.

Our great media is leading the ignorance charge on terrorism…..there is very little reliable info in the MSM they prefer to spend their time on speculation……

While I am not a big fan of RedState….they do have some interesting and thought provoking articles from time to time…..

The Times, They Are a Changin’!

The days of whine and roses are upon us…….we have 2 presumptive nominees and the campaigns will start their attacks on the ones they feel will be their opponents for the general.

To say that either of the two would be my pick would be a stretch…but then I did not have a horse in this race for you see I think the foreign policy will be the big issue that the new prez will have to face…..neither gives me much confidence…….

But I will say that I was somewhat impressed by part of Trump’s last major foreign policy speech……..most of it was his typical ramblings and the inevitable applause lines….but there was one thing that he said that stuck out…at least for me…..

“Instead of trying to spread universal values that not everybody shares or wants, we should understand that strengthening and promoting Western civilization and its accomplishments will do more to inspire positive reforms around the world than military interventions.”

His non-interventionist tone was very surprising…..and a bit optimistic……not that it would lead me to vote for him….but just maybe the tone from his opponent might soften a bit…..I mean if it is popular and would lead to more votes why would she not attempt to tamp down her neocon rhetoric?

Is it possible that the Times they are a changin’?

Or is all this so much bullsh*t…..political rhetoric if you want to be polite?

We know a politician will say whatever it takes to win an election…….

Bush Republicanism Is Dead and Gone

I occasionally do something that few of my more right leaning friends do….that is read opinions from opposition groups….I guess some of the mental midgets would call me “politically correct” for doing so……I guess if I was more of a self-centered type that would irritate me…..but personally, I do not care what they think….

But speaking of opposition positions….I recently read an op-ed by former presidential candidate Pat Buchanan…..he attempted to explain why he thinks that the Bush Republicanism is dead and gone…..

“The two living Republican past presidents, George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush, have no plans to endorse Trump, according to their spokesmen.” So said the lead story in The Washington Post. Graceless, yes, but not unexpected. The Bushes have many fine qualities. Losing well, however, is not one of them. And they have […]

I am not sure if I can agree…..I have seen the way all those naysayers against Trump have come slithering to his side once he became the presumptive nominee….it is a small indication that the GOP can survive the Trump attack…..

Any thoughts?
