Muslim Brotherhood Mafia (PROBABLY) Received Chemical Assists In Syria Via Barack HUSSEIN Obama…Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

Regulars readers understand that it takes much to shock this blogger. In fact, most who know her well would posit that this is a decided understatement. 

So before the following report was considered “A okay” to post (as reliable as Western Center for Journalism is) it was necessary to double check with some trusted U.S. contacts, just to make sure, in their considered opinion, that it was on the mark. It’s going up, so you know the result of said conversation.

It is imperative to note, previous commentaries ( allude to the contents below, but today’s report brings all our worst fears full circle – leaked emails and all! 

‘Did Obama Stage A Chemical Weapons Attack In Syria?’


“We know that Obama, under Fast and Furious, ran guns to Mexican drug cartels in order to curtail the Second Amendment.

We know that Barack Obama was running weapons to Syria, using Benghazi as a base of operation and Ambassador Chris Stevens as his point man.

But what if there was a new scandal, something so horrendous that it would make Obama’s gunrunning escapades look like child’s play?

Obama has made no secret of the fact that he wants to depose Syrian dictator Bashar Assad. He would have ridden on the shoulders of NATO long ago, spurning Congress like he did when he conducted an illegal and unconstitutional war in toppling Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi.

But in Gaddafi’s case, Obama had the UN and NATO supporting him. In Syria’s case, Obama lacks global support.

There is only one way Obama has vowed he would get involved in the toppling of Assad: that is, if the so-called “red line” is passed, whereby there is evidence Assad used chemical weapons against his own people.

There is every indication that Assad would never deploy chemical weapons against his own people. And in fact, Syria has long feared that the Obama administration would manufacture a false flag chemical weapons attack perpetrated by the Syrian rebels and then blame it on Assad.

And that is what apparently has happened.

With a twist.

On January 26, Cyber War News reported on a huge cache of emails and documents hacked from the defense contractor giant Britam. The key document is an email between Britam director David Goulding and the company’s founder, Philip Doughty. They engage in a shocking discussion: a proposal is made whereby a chemical weapon would be launched on Syria, the blame would be placed on Assad, and delivery of the weapon would be blamed on the Russians. The proposal, per the email, was “approved by Washington”—that is, by Barack Hussein Obama. The email is as follows:

Phil, We’ve got a new offer. It’s about Syria again. Qataris propose an attractive deal and swear that the idea is approved by Washington. We’ll have to deliver a CW [chemical weapon] to Homs [city in western Syria], a Soviet origin g-shell [gas shell] from Libya similar to those that Assad should have. They want us to deploy our Ukrainian personnel that should speak Russian and make a video record. Frankly, I don’t think it’s a good idea but the sums proposed are enormous. Your opinion? Kind regards-David.

Along with this email, there is a huge cache of downloadable documents, including passports of the Ukrainian mercenaries whom it is presumed would be posing as the scapegoated Russians delivering the chemical weapons.

Lo and behold on January 15, the leftist magazine Foreign Policy comes out with an “exclusive” article on a secret cable showing that Assad used chemical weapons against his own people. According to the article:

An Obama administration official who reviewed the document, which was classified at the “secret” level, detailed its contents to The Cable. “We can’t definitely say 100 percent, but Syrian contacts made a compelling case that Agent 15 was used in Homs on Dec. 23,” the official said.

Exactly how Foreign Policy got access to a secret cable is unknown. What is known is that Barack Hussein Obama is probably gearing up to lead another invasion of an Arab country, leading to another Libya or another Egypt, where al-Qaeda-linked and Muslim Brotherhood Islamists take over the country.

But isn’t that what Barack Obama wants?

If Obama did in fact take part in the murder of the Syrian people with chemical weapons, impeachment would be just the beginning.

A global trial for war crimes would be in order.

America, however, would get first dibs on him. Then the world could do with him as they wished.”

Further updates from Western Center For Journalism

One can seesaw all they want about how far the Islamist-in-Chief will go, in order to install the Muslim Brotherhood Mafia across the region. But if one requires a signed note/confession from Barack HUSSEIN Obama, about his designs for the region, little else will suffice – leaked emails notwithstanding! 

UPDATE: If the following news isn’t connected with the above report, then surely this blogger has a bridge to sell – for free. ‘Russia Slams Israeli Attack On Syria’…in non-bullsh-t language:How dare Israel’s leaders take measures to protect their people!

‘Russia slams Israeli attack on Syria. US forces in Jordan on alert’

DEBKAfile Special Report January 31, 2013, 9:51 AM (GMT+02:00)

Israeli Air Force F-15 Eagle takes off
Israeli Air Force F-15 Eagle takes off

The Syrian announcement of an Israeli air strike on a military site near Damascus Wednesday, Jan. 30, drew strong condemnation from Moscow the next day: “Such action if confirmed would amount to unacceptable military interference in the war-ravaged country,” said the statement issued by the Russian Foreign Ministry Thursday. “If this information is confirmed, then we are dealing with unprovoked attacks on targets on the territory of a sovereign country, which blatantly violate the UN Charter and is unacceptable, no matter the motives to justify it.”
Israel has made no comment on the Damascus statement which described in detail an Israeli air strike against a “military research institute” near the capital. Witnesses say it was a plant for manufacturing “unconventional weapons.” The facility was destroyed and two staff members killed.

Lebanese sources later reported a Russian Mig-31 fighter had crossed over Sinai Wednesday in the direction of Israel. It veered west over the Mediterranean after encountering an Israeli warning not to intrude into its air space and continued flying over Lebanon.

DEBKAfile’s military sources say that the only external military force in the eastern Mediterranean region is a fleet of 18 Russian warships, which includes landing-craft – among the largest in the Russian Navy – with 2,000 marines aboard.
According to various Middle East sources, the Syrian report of an Israeli air strike has touched off high military alerts across the region. Syria has put its Golan forces on the Israel border on combat readiness and the Lebanese and Jordanian armies are on alert. So too are the Russian fleet opposite Syria and the Lebanese army.

Our military sources report that Turkish units on the Syrian border are on high preparedness although Ankara played down the reports of the Israeli air strike in Syria, uncomfortable over the fact that the Israeli Air Force was the first external power to intervene directly in the Syrian conflict.

So too are the US air force units stationed at the Turkish Incerlik air base, the US special forces deployed at the Jordanian Mafraq air facility and the American, German and Dutch Patriot missile interceptors deployed in Turkey opposite Syria. Israel has been on high alert since last week.
The prevailing estimate in military and intelligence circles in Washington and NATO capitals is that the Israeli air attack on the Syrian military site near Damascus was but the opening shot for the coming round of military blows they expect to be exchanged in the near future between Israel, Syria and Hizballah, with Iran possibly waiting in the wings for a chance to pitch in.

Gotta tip our hats to Israel’s top political leadership, they are not known for taking decisive action, especially without Washington’s say so. They are generally joined at the hip. As to the IAF and Israel’s special ops (Sayeret Matkal in the lead), they ALWAYS get the job done! Would be shocked if it turned out otherwise.

Kadima boychiks. Higher and higher. From strength to strength.


Black Hawk Redux…This Time Houston…Miami Too…What The Hell Is Going On? Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

Living in the Middle East one gets used to – sort of – the intermittent displays of military power, whether in the skies, or via “controlled explosions” pounding overhead. Never mind the ever present soldiers displaying their ordinance, either by bus, rail or elsewhere. But that’s a good thing, at least when living in the heart of the Islamic beast!

However, aside from a short period after 9/11/01 (having personally witnessed many overhead military exercises at that time, living within spitting distance of the carnage), the U.S. military confines itself to its bases and several training spots in between, none of which includes citified exercise centers. Lo and behold, since Barack HUSSEIN Obama became Commander-in-Chief, stranger than strange military happenings have overtaken various city landscapes. What the hell is going on?

Of course, an out of control revolutionary regime will never tell the truth, but there are many patriots keeping an eye on some very worrying developments. As such, the following was reported, even all the way from Israel, as Black Hawks initially swirled overhead –

More to the point, the politicizing of DHS has rendered it ineffective towards its stated mission – …the protection of U.S. citizens, free of political machinations.

Thereby, is it any coincidence that “mama Janet” has instructed her charges: Conservative leaning Americans are the enemy? –

Not only are they the enemy, but “bitter clingers” must be disarmed, despite the protections of the Second Amendment – . The gov’t is totally out of control.

 Dear readers, in light of the above, what do you make of this tidbit?


Jan. 28, 2013 11:21pm 

“Following reports of a military exercise occurring in Miami this week, KTRK-TV shot video of military-style helicopters roaming the skies in Houston, Texas. There have also been several reports of gunfire in the area.

The U.S. Army tells KTRK-TV that they are overseeing a “multi-agency training drill” at the old Carnegie High School on Houston’s south side. There were reportedly armed men in fatigues, a lot of firearms and what many believed were real live rounds.

The Army did not give any additional details regarding what the training is all about or why it is being conducted in Houston.

One local resident, Frances Jerrals, didn’t understand what was happening when she saw military helicopters flying over her southeast Houston neighborhood.

“When you see this, you think the worst. When you hear this, you think the worst,” Jerrals told KTRK-TV.

“I felt like I was in a war zone…It was nonstop. I was terrified,” she added.

Another resident said the Army should do a better job of alerting the locals before they conduct such an alarming training drill.

A statement from police in Miami-Dade County argued the training exercise in Miami was “routine” and “designed to ensure the military’s ability to operate in urban environments, prepare forces for upcoming overseas deployments and meet mandatory certification requirement.”

This story may be updated with additional information.”

Rational folks intuit when smoke is blown their way. In fact, by insisting that the exercises are “routine”, when citizens know otherwise, only demonstrates their penchant for bold-faced lying. 

Besides, no one is asking the military for their secrets. Far from it. But make no mistake. When “any city USA” becomes a mirror image of third world countries, or the most imperiled nation in the world, something is amiss. Dangerously so.

Stay vigilant.

Conservative Push Back…Leftists, Are You Listening?? Brief Commentary/Video Too…By Adina Kutnicki

Every now and again an opportunity presents itself, a gift of sorts, one in which thought provoking truths merge with levity. The following is one such case. “Right on the mark”. A magically delicious double entendre…scroll on down and you will understand why.

Lest anyone has “delicate” sensibilities (not a problem on this end!), is allergic to truth-telling, or short of a full deck, you would do well to tune out this video clip. It may give you indigestion, or a full-on headache.

Mark Levin, a well known author and syndicated radio host, tells it like it is. He is not for the faint of heart –

Israel’s Special Forces, Sayeret Matkal, Take The Lead…Fordow Goes Boom…Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

Once again, this blog hails Sayeret Matkal, Israel’s most elite special ops forces. As a matter of record, and without exaggeration, it was a great honor to have been best friends with one of its elite commandos, Tsafrir Ronen, z”l (of blessed memory), who participated in the raid on Entebbe and so many other nation-saving missions – Israel’s Hero, My Hero  – 

It is also no secret that Jerusalem has been practicing the “art” of sabotage against Iran’s genocidal program, extrapolated within – As such, “this and that” has been going boom in the night. Of course, no one directly takes credit, though certain hints have been dropped. Therefore, the latest from DEBKAfile Intelligence is more than noteworthy.

‘Iranian-Hizballah convoy blown up on Syrian Golan. Border tensions shoot up’

DEBKAfile Special Report January 26, 2013,

Syrian Golan site of twin bombing
Syrian Golan site of twin bombing

At least eight officers were killed in a mysterious twin-car bomb explosion Friday, Jan. 25 at Syrian regional intelligence headquarters in Quneitra on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights. Some of the fatalities were Syrian, but Western intelligence sources disclosed to DEBKAfilethat most were high-ranking Iranian Al Qods Brigades and Hizballah officers. The blasts sent tensions shooting up on the Israeli and Jordanian borders with Syria.  Israeli, Jordanian and US Special Forces posted in the kingdom went on high alert. Heavy Syrian reinforcements were seen streaming toward the two borders.
Syrian regime sources said the explosive devices were attached to the intelligence command building’s outer walls. But the Western sources report that two large bomb cars were lying in wait on both sides of the road leading to the Syrian HQ and were detonated as the two-car convoy of Iranian and Hizballah officers drove by. There were no survivors.
Those sources also refute reports that the al-Qaeda linked Jabhat al-Nusrah fighting with the Syrian rebels claimed responsibility for the attack. This was a rare occasion when no Syrian opposition group issued any statement at all, they said. The speed with which Syrian army helicopters flew in to remove the casualties indicated their high rank.

In the view of a Jordanian military source, this attack by an unknown hand has delayed Bashar Assad’s advanced preparations for an all-out armored offensive to finally crush the revolt against his regime. His first targets were to have been the rebel-held villages along the Israeli and Jordanian borders.
The Syrian ruler was working to a plan of operations his generals had drawn up with Iranian Al Qods Brigades strategists.

Saturday, Ali Akbar Velayati, an aide to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, warned that Iran would consider any attack on Syria an attack on itself: “Syria has a very basic and key role in the region for promoting firm policies of resistance [against Israel]… For this reason an attack on Syria would be considered an attack on Iran and Iran’s allies.”
Meanwhile in Iran itself, the Fordo underground uranium enrichment plant was again reported targeted for sabotage, according to an unconfirmed report published by Reza Kahlil, who is described as a former Iranian Revolutionary Guards officer who worked under cover as a double agent for the CIA until he escaped to the United States.

Kahlil reported that at 11:30 a.m., Monday, Jan. 21, the day before Israel’s general elections, a large explosion occurred 100 meters deep inside the underground plant, trapping 240 nuclear staff in the third centrifuge chamber.  Among them, he said, were Iranian and Ukrainian technicians.
There was no information about casualties or the extent of damage to the 2,700 centrifuges which have been turning out 20-percent enriched uranium.

Khalil cited his source as Hamidreza Zakeri, a former Iranian Intelligence Ministry agent, who said the regime believes the blast was sabotage and the explosives could have reached the area disguised by the CIA as equipment imported for the site or defective machinery.

None of the information about an explosion at Fordo has been verified either by US officials or regime sources in Tehran.
Thursday, Jan. 24, Israel’s Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz and Military Intelligence Director Maj. Gen. Aviv Kochavi ceremonially promoted Col. G., commander of the elite Sayeret Matkal, to the rank of major general in recognition of his unit’s “outstanding covert operations.”

And the plot thickens, as news of Fordo’s booms reverberate around the world – 


Islamic regime scrambles as news of explosion catches fire worldwide

News of an explosion at one of Iran’s nuclear facilities – broken exclusively by WND – is exploding around the world, with independent confirmation and international response pouring in.

Israeli intelligence officials have confirmed the explosion to the Times of London, which is now reporting: “Sources in Tel Aviv said yesterday that they thought the explosion happened last week. The Israeli Government is investigating reports that it led to extensive structural damage and 200 workers had been trapped inside.

“Israel believes the Iranians have not evacuated the surrounding area. It is unclear whether that is because no harmful substances have been released, or because Tehran is trying to avoid sparking panic among residents.” Also on Sunday, Israel’s acting defense minister called the news “welcome,” and a German newspaper said its own source in Tehran confirmed the report, even while Iran is trying to keep the news under wraps. WND’s exclusive report revealed an explosion last Monday deep within Iran’s Fordow nuclear facility destroyed much of the installation, trapping scores of people, including scientists and workers, many of whom are foreign workers. According to a member of the security forces at the site, both elevators and the emergency exit had collapsed, and the regime fears loss of lives due to possible radiation after the explosion. The information comes through Hamidreza Zakeri, a former member of the regime. The Iranian regime further believes the blast was sabotage and the explosives could have reached the area disguised as equipment or in the uranium hexafluoride stock transferred to the site, the source said. The explosion occurred at the third centrifuge chambers, with the high-grade enriched uranium reserves below them.

At midnight Sunday, Tehran time, however, all regime-controlled media published a two-line announcement by the deputy of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, Shamsoldin Berberoodi, that no explosion had taken place at Fordow. Iran does not want word of the sabotage to leak out because it would badly damage its negotiating position in talks with the 5+1 (the United States, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany), WND’s source said. Indeed, the two-line announcement said the reports of the explosion are meant to bring pressure on Iran at the talks.

The regime’s defense ministry, which runs the country’s nuclear program, has dispatched the drill team from the Revolutionary Guards Khatam al-Anbia base to the site, the source said, but as of today no progress had been made to reach those trapped within. According to the source, the regime has enforced a total blackout on the media and the families of the employees who work at the site. The security forces have also created a security zone around the site to control access and manage the rescue efforts.

The source said the regime’s security forces have attacked many moderate media offices, shutting down their activity and Internet sites. There is no information if these attacks were related to the Fordow explosion. The site, which is about 300 feet under a mountain and immune to airstrikes and most bunker-buster bombs, is the Islamic regime’s main site, with its more than 2,700 centrifuges to enrich uranium to the 20 percent level, raising international concern about Iran’s nuclear bomb program.

WND’s Jan. 24 report on the sabotage was covered internationally on Sunday with Israeli Acting Defense Minister Avi Dichter stating that, “Any explosion in Iran that doesn’t hurt people but hurts its assets is welcome.” Israel’s biggest daily, Yediot Ahronot, led its Sunday paper with a headline: “The most significant incidence of sabotage in the Iranian nuclear program to date.”

As reported by Globes Online out of Israel, “Yediot Ahronot cites U.S. conservative website ‘WND’ as reporting … that former Iranian Republican Guard commander Reza Kahlili, recruited by the CIA and who defected to the U.S., claimed that Iranian sources reported a huge explosion last Monday at Fordow’s centrifuges room. They claim that the explosion destroyed a significant portion of the facility and that 240 workers were trapped underground.”

The Jerusalem Post mentioned WND’s report and added a quote from Emily Landau, director of the Arms Control and Regional Security Project at the Tel Aviv-based Institute for National Security Studies, who noted that Iran is enriching uranium to 20 percent at Fordow, “and it raises concerns because it is buried deep in a mountain.”

Germany’s Die Welt published the report with a headline, “Expert reports severe explosion at nuclear plant.”

“According to a report by Iran expert Reza Kahlili on the Iranian nuclear facility of Fordow, a few days ago a huge explosion took place which destroyed large parts of the plant,” Die Welt said. “Kahlili says he got this information from a former Iranian intelligence official.”

Die Welt, with sources close to the German intelligence agency BND (Bundesnachrichtendienst), corroborated the WND report by stating that now, Welt am Sonntag (a well-respected German Sunday newspaper) “has received information from an Iranian intelligence service contact confirming that the explosion had actually happened and that 190 workers at the nuclear plant were cut off from the outside world.”

The German newspaper Spiegel also gave big coverage to the story, along with others worldwide.

Interestingly, the Israeli DEBKAfile, known to be close to Israeli intelligence in covering the WND story, stated that on Jan. 24, Israeli Chief of Staff, Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz and Military Intelligence Director Maj. Gen. Aviv Kochavi ceremonially promoted “Col. G.,” commander of the elite Sayeret Matkal, to the rank of major general in recognition of his unit’s “outstanding covert operations.”

As reported Jan. 21, also exclusively on WND, the Iranian regime’s intelligence ministry had received information from an alleged spy planted inside Israel’s spy agency, Mossad, that Israel and certain Western countries, quite aware of Iran’s nuclear bomb program and believing time is of the essence, have drawn up plans for covert operations to destroy Iran’s nuclear installations, thereby avoiding a large-scale war.

Regime officials held two high-level meetings on Tuesday afternoon, one at the presidential building and the other at the supreme leader’s residence. The source for this information could only say that all high-level officials participated in the meeting with Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and that it lasted till about 9:30 p.m. Tehran time.

Several Iranian nuclear scientists have been assassinated in recent years, and last year saboteurs struck the power supply to the Fordow facility, temporarily disrupting production. A computer worm called Stuxnet, believed to have originated in the United States, also set Iran’s plans for nuclear weapons back substantially.

Any blow to the Fordow facility would be a huge blow to the regime because, despite severe international pressure and sanctions, it has refused to halt the 20 percent uranium-enrichment process at this site. It takes only weeks to further enrich the stock at the 20 percent level to weapon grade for a nuclear bomb.

Sources in the Islamic regime previously have revealed exclusively to WND the existence of:

UPDATE: New details surface on Fordow explosion…North Koreans/officers trapped as well –

NEVERTHELESS, while any damage to Iran’s killing machine is a blessed event (westerners owe a lifetime debt of gratitude to Israel’s special forces), the fact of the matter is that PM Netanyahu has been clearly following the Islamist-in-Chief’s lead, regarding the most existential peril to half of world Jewry.

In other words, booms in the night are approved, but all out assault isn’t. The bigger/overall/existential question is: what kind of Jewish leadership leaves the fate of its nation to another power, albeit a super power, but most essentially to one which is led by such a radical, Islamist-leaning POTUS?  

We can debate, until the cows come home, how essential a good relationship  with Washington is. Well and good. But we dare not blind ourselves to reality on the ground. Simply put:

Presenting, PART TWO: A Strategic-Based Policy Interview With Dr. Martin Sherman, Founder Of The Israel Institute For Strategic Studies (IISS)…By Adina Kutnicki

As promised, the following is Part Two to a very well received maiden interview with Dr. Martin Sherman, Israel’s foremost strategic policy analyst – Part One can be found here –

Without further ado, presenting,

AK: In the first portion of this interview, you made the point that the major problems/challenges facing Israel today should be characterized more as an interfacing and interacting complex, rather than an “itemized” list of discrete and disconnected topics. However, it you had to prioritize the severity or urgency of those problems/challenges, how would you approach the question?

MS: Without a doubt, Israel’s greatest strategic challenge, its gravest strategic failure and its grimmest strategic danger is the (mis)conduct of its public diplomacy.

In this regard, I endorse entirely the grave warning conveyed by Professor Eitan GIlboa in a 2006 article entitled “Public Diplomacy: The Missing Component in Israel’s Foreign Policy”:

The lack of an adequate PD programme has significantly affected Israel’s strategic outlook and freedom of action…. Any further neglect of PD would not only restrict Israel’s strategic options, it would be detrimental to its ability to survive…

Gilboa is quite right. In an era of unprecedented power and influence held by the media, it is difficult to overstate the strategic importance of diplomacy (particularly public diplomacy) and public relations. These are circumstances that call for a far-reaching change in Israel’s approach to diplomacy – and the resources allocated to it. In fact, the role of diplomacy is in many ways similar to that of the air force – and should be treated accordingly. For just as the classic role of the air force is to provide the ground forces the necessary freedom of action they require to attain their objectives, so the classic role of diplomacy is to provide national policy makers the freedom of action they require to attain the objectives of that policy.

AK: I understand that you feel that this is something not grasped by Israeli officialdom?

MS: Definitely not. The attitude of Israeli officialdom towards diplomacy (especially public diplomacy and public relations) does not reflect an appropriate awareness of their importance – as is revealed by the minimal scope of resources allocated for this purpose.

After all, one of the most revealing criteria regarding the importance an organization assigns a given activity is the amount of resources it allots for the conduct of that activity. In Israel, the resources allocated for the conduct of its public diplomacy efforts are – by any standard – ridiculously small.

The following description by outgoing MK Michael Eitan at a joint session of the Knesset Science and Technology and the Foreign Affairs and Defense committees underscores the point vividly:

It is horrifying to hear that the advertising budget for the [popular peanut] snack “Bamba” is two to three times the overall PR [hasbara] budget of the state… the outcomes of the war on the media front directly influence the outcomes of the battles at the front line.

So Israel spends – literally–less than a medium-large size corporation spends on promoting fast foods and snacks on conveying its message to the world. There is thus little reason to believe that the message will be successfully conveyed. The connection between diplomacy and public relations, and the ability to wage war on the battlefield, is abundantly clear. Without the removal of political restraints – whether in fact real or merely perceived – on the use of Israel’s military power to safeguard its vital interests, its theoretical martial might is meaningless. After all, what is the value of even the most advanced weaponry, if the nation’s leaders believe it cannot be used because of political constraints?

This was recently expressed in Jerusalem Post opinion piece by Shmuley Boetach, in which he correctly noted:

What good is having Apache helicopter gunships, or Merkava tanks, to defend your citizens against attack if you can’t even use them because the world thinks you’re always the aggressor?

Over 200 years ago, Frederick the Great, who reigned as king of Prussia 1740-1786 reportedly stated that “Diplomacy without arms is like music without instruments.” Over time his relationship has been entirely reversed and today it is true to say that :”Arms without diplomacy is like music without instruments”.

According, diplomacy – particularly public diplomacy – constitutes a strategic instrument of primary importance and should be treated as such.

AK: Perhaps it is a result of lack of sufficient financial resources?

MS: Regrettably, this “thrift” is not dictated by a lack of resources. After all, whenever Israel has desired to achieve a non-budgeted objective, money has rarely been an obstacle.

When billions of shekels were needed for the construction of the separation barrier, that was no problem; when billions of dollars were needed for the Gaza “disengagement”, that was no problem either. Likewise, the tens of billions of dollars required for the planned “convergence” (i.e. withdrawal) from Judea and Samaria were not considered an insurmountable obstacle—even though it was clear the money was not coming from the American taxpayer.

Currently, Israel’s GDP is around a quarter trillion dollars. If even a small fraction of one percent of GDP was devoted to public diplomacy, this would generate a budget of one billion dollars—rather than the paltry sums provided today.

But if this seems excessive to some – consider what could be achieved by a massive   $100 million public diplomacy drive that focused merely on the Hillel (Jewish student) branches across US campuses.

AK: But is it merely a quantitative problem that can be addressed by allotting more resources, or is the malaise more profound?

You are right. Regrettably, in Israel there seems to be serious (mis)comprehensions as to the role and purpose of diplomacy. It must be addressed without delay.

AK: What do you mean?

Instead of diplomacy being seen as a means to help remove obstacles impeding the attainment of national objectives, the diplomatic obstacles have become the point of departure from which the national objectives are derived. Thus, a situation has been created where the relationship between the “dependent variable” and the “independent variable” has been inverted. Rather than Israeli national policy makers viewing diplomacy as an instrument at their disposal to enable them to achieve the goals of their chosen policy, diplomatic difficulties themselves have become the factors that dictate the goals chosen by the policy makers.

The first step in transforming Israeli diplomacy into the strategic resource that it should be is to comprehend this conceptual distortion and to rectify it.

AK: What would this entail?

Perhaps the most important transformation requires its removal from a largely defensive roll – with the emphasis on trying to rebut accusations against Israel – to a more offensive and aggressive mode of public diplomacy. After all, ever since Sun Tzu’s “The Art of War”, written about two and a half millennium ago, it has been widely accepted that “the ability to defeat the enemy means taking the offensive….Standing on the defensive indicates insufficient strength”.

So it should be, in effect, diplomatic warfare – which should be guided by the traditional Zionist doctrine of warfare – i.e. of bringing the battle to the enemy’s territory.

Accordingly, such offensive diplomatic measures should not, however, be confined to refuting false accusations against Israel that it is an “apartheid state” that conducts a harsh policy of racial discrimination, and which inflicts untold harm on its international image.

Together with an assertive and self-confident presentation of Israel as a tolerant, open pluralistic society, in which both dark-skinned and light-skinned individuals are accorded identical civil rights, in which non-Jews (including Arabs) hold senior positions in the government, the parliament, the police, the judiciary, the military and the public service, resolute attacks against the blatant deceit and hypocrisy of Israel’s critics must also be mounted. It should also strive vigorously to highlight the cruel and discriminatory nature of the regimes and the societies of many of Israel’s detractors.

AK: What would this include?

This diplomatic counter-offensive should focus world attention on, and raise international consciousness to, the fact that it is actually Israel’s most vehement accusers who comprise a huge “apartheid empire”, in which they practice, as a matter of everyday routine, brutal and widespread discrimination – including the malicious oppression of women (gender apartheid); the vicious persecution of virtually all non-Muslim religions (creed apartheid); and the ruthless hounding of homosexuals (gay apartheid). This calls for an aggressive and ongoing public relations drive aimed at emphasizing, exposing, and sharpening international awareness to the fact that these brutal iniquities are the hallmarks of Israel’s foes in the region.

AK: Some (leftists) would protest that these kind of attacks are too harsh to be conducted by Israeli official organs?

It is true that some of the “inconvenient truths” that need to be conveyed could be considered inappropriately brusque and abrasive to be administered by the official organs of state. To circumvent this difficulty, a complex of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) should be established which can articulate positions, propose policies and formulate paradigms. These NGO’s need not comply with the niceties that bind the conduct of official organs of state.

To a large degree, this is what the Israeli left has done very effectively through organizations such as the New Israel Fund, J-Street and Peace Now, which were the vanguard in successfully promoting policies that were considered too radical or controversial for the political establishment to endorse initially – such as the Oslo process, recognition of the PLO, and the acceptance of a Palestinian state.

AK: So how would you suggest addressing the Palestinian issue in the context of what you have just said?

The Palestinian issue is the overwhelmingly dominant source of the de-legitimization of Israel. Unless this issue is addressed, there will be little chance of stemming the ongoing deterioration of Israel’s international standing.

AK: Substantively what does this mean?

The first and most crucial issue to grasp is that if the Palestinian narrative – which portrays the Palestinians as an authentic national entity – is acknowledged as legitimate, then all the aspirations, such as achieving Palestinians statehood that arise from that narrative, are legitimate.

Conversely, any policy that precludes the achievement of those aspirations will be perceived as illegitimate. But—in the absence of wildly optimistic and hence irresponsibly unrealistic “best-case” assumptions—any policy that is designed to secure Israel’s minimal security requirements, will preclude the establishment of a viable Palestinian state. Accordingly, any endeavor to realistically provide Israel with minimal security will be perceived as illegitimate. The inevitable conclusion must therefore be for Israel to secure conditions that adequately address its minimal security requirements, the Palestinian narrative and the aspirations that flow from it must be delegitimized.

AK: Delegitimize the Palestinian narrative? How?

An elaboration of the full range of operational details—some of which I have detailed in my weekly Jerusalem Post column,”Into The Fray”—clearly goes beyond the bounds of an interview such as this. But the endeavor must be based on the same offensive principle we discussed in Part One—and abandon collaborating with the fiction of portraying the Palestinians—or at least a major portion of their leaders–as pragmatic moderates.

Clearly, if you present the Palestinians as being not really different from the folks in Manhattan or Orange County, no-one will understand why Israel needs the measures it needs to preserve its security. But if you present the Palestinian society as it really is – a cruel, brutal society that suppresses its women; oppresses its homosexuals; represses its political dissidents; a society that if it does not legally permit, at least socially condones the honor killing of young women, the brutalization of political rivals, and summary execution of gays, if you present the Palestinians as such, it makes no sense to bring such a state to the perimeter of your only international airport and to the length of the trans-Israel highway.

To put it metaphorically, if Israel persists in portraying the Palestinian’s as cuddly poodles, rather than vicious Rottweiler, no-one will understand why it needs Rottweiler policies to contend with poodles

AK: But given the international climate can you see why the government is loath to do this?

Yes – but this is precisely why it needs a well-funded, assertive and articulate ex-governmental system, discussed previously, to initiate this kind of discourse – both domestically and abroad.

This is precisely the kind of enterprise I am trying to spearhead with my Israel Institute for Strategic Studies.

AK: Most especially, once again, thank you for your invaluable insights. You offer enlightening, targeted, incisive lessons in the “art” of geo-politics. They include trenchant strategic prescriptions, outlined for the most imperiled nation in the world; a speck on the map, yet a never ending obsession with the world’s leadership.

If this blogger (and her readers) are fortunate enough, perhaps Part Three will be forthcoming. As always, a pleasure.

The Radical-in-Chief’s Sell Off – Literally – To Communist China…Bargain Basement Prices…Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

Fiscal irresponsibility via profligate spending resulted in astronomical debt, a hallmark of Washington for decades. However, its out-sized scope reached endemic proportions under the reign of the Radical-in-Chief. Accumulated statistics from non-partisan arenas support this fact. Said numbers are not fungible, regardless how many ways Obama and gang “fudge the math” – fuzzy-like. Garbage in, garbage out.

But none of their reprehensible actions are done in a vacuum. They are designed to bring America to its (economic) knees, as conceived by a cadre of power hungry leftists and their surrogates. While they impoverish the nation they enrich themselves. Al Gore is one such radical leftist, also deeply enmeshed with Islamic overlords – . In this regard, as long as America goes down in flames, the radical left and Islamic supremacists are pleased to join hands- an alliance of twin devils.

None of the above should shock anyone, except those who are in clinical comas. Most especially, this blog’s readership have been duly apprised, often seeming like a broken record. There is a reason for their “madness”. A method too.

The Commander-in-Chief’s economic devastation – one part of the “deconstruction” – is self evident throughout these links –… enough to make a patriot see red and rise up in the process. Who gave them the right to destroy America, a nation fought for with the blood of its citizens! But their treachery is much worse.

‘The Darkest Design of Barack Obama
’, Erik Rush, January 19, 2013

“American people are being positioned to suffer most due to the accumulation of debt that irresponsible government officials racked up

For some time, there have been unsubstantiated reports of the Obama administration engaging in clandestine negotiations with China toward satisfying America’s debt to that nation via exchanges of land and resources. Such an arrangement would be illegal and treasonous of course, but given its deportment to date, that would not likely deter this administration.

This week, I presented substantiation to the aforementioned reports, much to the fear and consternation of most people who became apprised of this phenomenon. Referencing sources that have proven reliable in the past, I cited such things as Chinese military operatives engaging in clandestine “research” within U.S. borders, and assessments of land and resources having been conducted by China in recent years, all with the administration’s approval. Also, in the face of having trillions of dollars in debt called by China, and the economic catastrophe that would ensue, it is entirely possible that Obama might request and be granted some manner of dispensation from Congress to legitimize this pact.

All of this falls well within the parameters of Barack Obama’s long-standing desire to bring America down, as it were, punishing the American people for centuries of enjoying the spoils of imperialism, colonialism, and oppression, as well as finally bringing this nation under the heel of communism.

We’re aware that liberal politicians have treated communist China with a marked naïveté going back to the Clinton administration, allowing them inordinate incursion into our ports and commercial infrastructure, and that Obama has been singing China’s praises with regard to their infrastructure and growth since 2008. In 2011, Republican lawmakers voiced concern that the Obama administration was allowing high-ranking Chinese military officials access to sensitive U.S. military installations.It also explains maneuvers that have taken place over the past few years relative to this administration. Given the economic circumstances in which America found itself when Obama took office, many were horrified at his spending $5 trillion during his first term, and decisions that resulted in America’s debt increasing by approximately $10 trillion. Given his objectives, however, what better way to bring about increasing debt pressure than by more spending?

Thus – which came as an outrage, but no surprise to many – it is the Chinese government that is lobbying Obama to disarm the American public. They foresee a time when there will be widespread anger against them for their role in this obscene arrangement, and would rather not have to militarily engage armed Americans over land or resources that they will control, some of which is in America’s heartland. Some perceive Obama’s spirited pursuit of gun control after the Sandy Hook massacre as typical knee-jerk liberal opportunism, but it is far more than that.

As reported previously in this space, despite Obama’s affinity for communism and show of solidarity with the world’s leftists, the Chinese government thinks him a fool, yet they are more than happy to expand their global influence at our expense.

There has been a certain amount of backlash from conservatives given Obama’s pretentious and autocratic pursuit of new firearms regulation, and even from some Republican lawmakers. This week, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) claimed that Obama has “drunk the Kool-Aid… he’s high on his own power,” and that he will “pay the political price” for gun control, predicting 2010-style GOP Senate victories in 2014.

Obama’s definitely high on power, but I wouldn’t count on him paying any price for his policy escapades; considering the course America is on at the moment, there may not be a midterm election in 2014 at all. If there is, the leftist juggernaut of a compromised press, political organization, and outright fraud proved in November 2012 that it can prevail over all logic, common sense, and ostensible fail safes within the American electoral system. As the press continues to maintain the illusion that Obama is simply another American trying to do the right thing, he has been involved in the darkest machinations, some as yet incomprehensible to the average American.

It is a sad irony that the American people are being positioned to suffer most due to the accumulation of debt that irresponsible (and some outright treasonous) government officials racked up in the first place, but such is the lot of those who are ruled rather than governed.”

There is nothing which Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s revolutionary regime believes is off limits. From American’s right to bear arms, to the destruction of the economy – and everything else in between – little is outside their grip, or so they think.

In fact, George – the devil incarnate – Soros bought the Dem Party lock, stock and barrel and now OWNS the White House. Yes, he does. One of his main henchmen, Erik Smith, will be the Radical-in-Chief’s Chief of Staff! Therefore, whatever Georgie boy wants will be his for the taking – He is the puppeteer. 

With the above anti-American globalists in place, China is grabbing up more than America’s real estate, yet few have a clue. And this is just the beginning.Time to catch up to speed.

Benghazigate & Its Multi-Faceted Cover Up: Hillary FINALLY Testifies…Raising More Questions Than Answers…Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

FAR be if for this blogger to indulge in conspiracy theories. There are more than enough real horrors to deal with, hardly necessitating an imaginary bugaboo. Besides, rational thought processes hold sway. Fanciful, magical thinking play no part. Never gonna happen on this end.

That being said, it behooves many to veer outside their comfort zones, thus, placing themselves deep within the leadership’s lying shoes. They tell tall tales just as reflexively as they breathe. That easily. So when nothing being presented makes sense (unless one is missing half a deck), and smoke is billowing before you, it is wholly rational to sift fact from fiction and dig beneath the murky surface.

From the onset, this is precisely what has taken place, at least at this blog. Up until Hill’s non-transparent testimony the trail ended here –…but continues below, as one attempts to peel back the layers of lies. Onion-like.

Before getting to the heart of the matter, please review a similarly posited theory presented herein, as the Blind terror Sheik was featured as a likely goal post for the mayhem in Libya, directly leading to Benghazigate. Think of it as a gift from the Islamist-in-Chief to his Muslim Mafia Brothers, though other regional factors were in play. A real “go to” guy –


JANUARY 23, 2013 BY  
“Hillary Clinton was on the Hill this morning, four months after the Benghazi consulate attack; Congress is still trying to find out what happened on September 11, 2011.

Obama vowed to get to the bottom of it; but instead, we got “Pin the tail on the anti-Muslim YouTube video” and a “Benghazi Accountability Report” authored by Islamic apologist Thomas R. Pickering that didn’t actually find anyone accountable.

The whole business stinks of a cover-up. And cover-ups give rise to conspiracy theories.

Enter the “conspiracy theory” that the attack on the Benghazi consulate was an Obama-orchestrated “October Surprise” to kidnap ambassador Chris Stevens and trade him to the Muslim Brotherhood for the Blind Sheikh and prop up his dismal 43% approval rating by acting the hero.

Except a retired four-star Admiral says this is exactly what happened:

The Washington Examiner, quoting retired Four-Star Admiral James Lyons, writes: “the attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi…was the result of a bungled abduction attempt…the first stage of an international prisoner exchange…that would have ensured the release of Omar Abdel Rahman, the ‘Blind Sheik’…

Enter the Algerian hostage crisis. Again, the Blind Sheikh enters the picture. Again, the kidnapping operation hits a snag. Again, the militants seem to have inside knowledge of the facility. The militants, headed by the al-Qaeda-linked “holy warrior” Mokhtar Belmokhtar, demand the release of the Blind Sheikh in exchange for the Americans being held. And again, there is a massacre.

Except this time, instead of four Americans dying, everyone dies (hostages and militants, eighty-one at last count), mowed down by a fleet of Algerian military helicopters.

And lo and behold, among the dead bodies, among the militants reportedly heading the mission are several blond-haired, blue-eyed westerners.

America, Obama is in bed with the Muslim Brotherhood. Obama is in bed with terrorists. Obama is in bed with the enemy.

When exactly America will wake up to this fact, however, remains to be seen.”

And for those who require additional insights, take a peek within – 

“To better help Americans determine to what extent Mrs. Clinton’s testimony is truthful, has compiled a comprehensive report and timeline that lays out all the most significant events that occurred before, during, and after September 11.

In this report, you learn that in March 2011, American diplomat Christopher Stevens was stationed in Benghazi as the American liaison to Libya’s “opposition” rebels — among whom were many al Qaeda-affiliated jihadists – who were fighting to topple the longstanding regime of President Muammar Qaddafi. In short, the Obama administration elected to support individuals and groups that were allied ideologically and tactically with al Qaeda…..” –

Aaron Klein skewers Hill too – ….and no one who knows the score could conceivably argue that he doesn’t know his way around terror nests – A slam dunk indictment.

EVEN the Jerusalem Post is seeing through Clinton’s gobblygook, and this is no small feat for a media outlet which has been turning leftward for quite some time –

DESPITE all the above, it remains to be seen whether Conservative American activists are outraged enough to hold their RINO reps accountable, thereby, resulting in actionable punishment. Perhaps utilizing Watergate (a kindergarten prank in comparison to Benghazigate) as a benchmark investigation but upping the ante, the criminals running Benghazigate (from their cushy confines in Washington) will finally receive the sentences they deserve.

Most significantly, this theater of the absurd – which passes as hearings on the Hill – will become more than a laughingstock if they do not mete out justice for the dead and their loved ones. For Americans as well. There is (or at least should be) only so much patriotic citizens are willing to tolerate.

Americans, Do You Know What Barack HUSSEIN Obama Wants Your Children To Learn? Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

This blog addresses the many methods in which leftists do the bidding of their Islamist helpmates. Vice versa. One of their stealth-like tactics involves infiltration and penetration – through the indoctrination of the children – as they deeply embed/burrow themselves within the educational curriculum.

When it comes to the kiddies one must hold their feet to the fire, scorching them in the process. In fact, this mother would walk over hot coals to protect hers, as would most normal parents.

Therefore, reading about the latest putsch by Obama and gang, as they aim for the “hearts and minds” of kiddies, should enrage most of us, but hardly come as a surprise. However, for the newly initiated to this blog, here’s a quick uptake:

Just imagine arriving at your local public school’s PTA event, only to find out that a former, unrepentant, domestic terrorist is designing your child’s curriculum – . Would you take such news lying down? What about learning that a man who dabbled in “man-boy” clubs, is touted as the next “Safe-School” czar? Again, what does a rational parent do?

But even if escaping into the private school sector is financially feasible, don’t expect to entirely eschew their clutches – . Not by a long shot.

With the above in mind, does the following investigative report shock, repulse, outrage all right (no pun intended) thinking Americans? Let’s hope so!


Source says federal officials pursuing program used in Texas

CSCOPE, the controversial online curriculum that taught “Allah is God” and currently is used in 80 percent of Texas school districts, has caught the attention of the Obama administration’s Department of Education.

A source in the Texas education system has told WND that Common Core operatives in the U.S. Department of Education are actively pursuing CSCOPE as a way around the Texas legislative process.

Texas is one of the few states still resisting implementation of Common Core, Obama’s national standards initiative, which many feel is a transparent attempt to nationalize education and progressively control classroom content with minimal parental oversight.

Implementation of Common Core is known to have been made a condition of school systems’ receipt of federal dollars under Obama’s “Race to the Top” program.

CSCOPE recently has come under fire for evidence of what sources claim to be radical content and secrecy. Now new information of such a radical agenda has surfaced showing CSCOPE connections to Obama mentor and self-acknowledged terror group member Bill Ayers.

WND has documented a strong link between Ayers and CSCOPE heavyweight and Common Core advocate Linda Darling-Hammond. An unrepentant terror group member (and known Obama supporter, financier, and ghost-writer), William “Bill” Ayers was part of the notorious Weather Underground which attempted to bomb the Pentagon in the seventies. After 9/11, Ayers was interviewed by the New York Times, and was quoted as saying he had “no regrets.”

Ayers gave Darling-Hammond an enthusiastic endorsement for education secretary when Obama was first elected. Ayers has worked extensively with Darling-Hammond on many of the same projects, even editing her work. Both are part of what some education experts have termed the “small schools movement,” which allegedly emphasizes “emotional” responses and output over factual mastery.

Darling-Hammond is mentioned throughout CSCOPE literature, has given innumerable lectures on behalf of CSCOPE, and was part of Obama’s educational transition team. She is a primary advocate and proponent of Common Core in Texas, and observers see the acquisition of CSCOPE by the U.S. Department of Education as a logical next step.

This scenario has alarmed those concerned about classroom content accountability. Previously, WND reported how CSCOPE lessons promote Islam, teaching conversion methods and presenting verses from the Quran that denigrate other faiths. In CSCOPE curriculum, the Boston Tea Party is likened to an act of terrorism on par with 9/11. In the wake of the Newtown massacre, the Second Amendment is portrayed as a “collective,” not an individual right, despite the Supreme Court’s recent rulings to the contrary.

The CSCOPE website has posted a response to concerns about certain lesson plans, including an extensive discussion of the Boston Tea Party. But critics say that such lessons should never have appeared in the first place.

Sources within the Texas education system recently informed WND that Wicca, thought by many to be akin to witchcraft, was being taught in CSCOPE curriculum alongside Christianity, but was removed before the news media could access it, a fact which represents one of the biggest concerns for followers of CSCOPE.

CSCOPE apparently immediately deletes controversial content once leaked, making it impossible at any one time to know exactly what students are learning and in what order. Defenders of this process say that this responsiveness to public scrutiny is a form of self-auditing. Others have said that it simply leaves parents, teachers and those in charge of curriculum oversight powerless to stop agenda-driven lesson plans and the damage the ideas therein might do to students.

WND has documented numerous instances of lessons being deleted after their use in classrooms.

When it was discovered that Islam was being given preferential status as a part of a study on the world’s major religions, CSCOPE administrators deleted the lesson plan and associated PowerPoint in the presence of two sources, leaving no trace online.

However, through available technology, documentation of this lesson plan and other such controversial content has been retained and reviewed by Texas educators and WND.

See the lesson.

In CSCOPE World History/Social Studies, Lesson 2, Unit 3 under the heading, “Classical Rome,” students are told that Christianity is a “cult,” and given a link to a BBC article saying the early Christians were “cannibals,” i.e. the Eucharist, which students are then led to conclude is the reason for Roman persecution.

See the lesson.

This lesson has since been removed, but documentation in WND’s possession confirms that the lesson existed. Critics contend that this ability to change content on a whim to evade scrutiny or accountability is a persistent risk with a system like CSCOPE. An organic curriculum – if regulated – might be advantageous, but without transparency, these types of occurrences will likely be more frequent, critics say.

Speaking with WND, Texas Sen. Dan Patrick, new chairman of the education committee, communicated his intent to hold high-profile hearings and investigate CSCOPE.

Sen. Patrick noted, “Any system where the chairman of the state board can’t get a password to explore their site in detail for six months, requires teachers to sign an agreement that could subject them to criminal penalties, and is not easily transparent to parents, needs to be closely examined by the legislature.”

When asked if he would support placing CSCOPE under state oversight and/or local school board oversight, Sen. Patrick answered carefully, explaining,

“We will make that decision after our hearings. However, I have concerns of any curriculum program that is in the majority of our school districts without some level of oversight by either the SBOE, TEA, or the legislature.”

Patrick, along with many other Republicans, supported the 2011 legislation that took power over Internet curriculum review away from the SBOE, though this provision was admittedly ill-understood in its implications and was originally intended to reduce the cost-burden to school districts in obtaining and distributing the curriculum. While reducing costs, this move also created the basis of the current controversy.

Opponents of CSCOPE, on the other hand, desire a lawsuit. They do not want to wait for hearings. As they contend, CSCOPE is already violating Texas public statutes, which require all “instructional materials” to be available to parents. CSCOPE places all primary content – apart from summaries – behind a pay wall.

Texas Education Service Center Curriculum Collaborative (TESCCC) Governing Board minutes, obtained only by Texas Public Information Act request, reveal that even the governing board in charge of CSCOPE may not be fully aware of CSCOPE content issues.

Minutes for the meetings covered show that governing board members were told by CSCOPE Executive Director Wade Labay that they will only be involved in content-related issues if “politically sensitive,” what Labay calls “’911′ type messages or those deemed critical.” In other words, in addition to the absence of state oversight, corporate oversight within CSCOPE might be lacking.

The fears of some that CSCOPE is replacing textbooks, a claim denied by Texas SBOE member Thomas Ratliff, would appear justified if governing board minutes are considered.

In addition to outlining when and under what circumstances CSCOPE would communicate with the TESCCC governing board, pending textbook alignments with Pearson, McGraw Hill, et al., were discussed and delayed with the support of governing board members. Some attendees lamented even having to align CSCOPE content with textbooks, since “the mission of CSCOPE is to change instruction in the classroom.”

TESCCC has now asked the Texas Attorney General to make its minutes exempt from public information requirements.”

Along comes enough incendiary information to inflame parents, as well as all manner of patriots, many wondering: what’s to be done? 

Whatever shakes out – via this or that tactical response – a pox on Obama’s Islamist, radical revolutionary regime!

American Patriots Gear Up For Legal, Democratic, Liberty Seeking Action – Against A Radical POTUS…Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

Wish this blogger could take credit for the following: a clarion call for American-style justice. But such is not the case. Regardless, it hits most of the high points and this is what counts. For the record, it is circling around Facebook and other social media sites. Hope its contents bear fruit. G-d willing.


Ten Articles Of Impeachment Of Barack Hussein Obama
Resolved, That Barack Hussein Obama, President of the United States, is impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors and that the following articles of impeachment be exhibited to the United States Senate:
►Article I
In his conduct while President of the United States,Barack Hussein Obama, in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of President of the United States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in violation of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, did allow, the transfer of guns, grenades and other weapons to Mexican drug cartels direct from the federal government. This resulted in the deaths of at least 58,000 Mexican nationals and hundreds of Americans.
►Article II
Barack Hussein Obama violated numerous laws and violated his constitutional obligation to protect the health and safety of Americans when according to federal court documents in Chicago, he allowed the CIA and Mexican drug cartels to fly planeloads of illegal drugs into that city. As Commander-in-Chief, he has allowed opium production to grow to such an extent that 100,000 people worldwide die every year from heroin overdoses. He has made heroin from Afghanistan so plentiful and cheap in America that the average age of a first time heroin user in America is now just 14 ½ years.
►Article III
As Commander-in-Chief, Barack Hussein Obama failed to protect the American consulate in Benghazi Libya which was under attack by armed men for several hours. He also fired naval and army commanders in the area who attempted to come to the aid of men in imminent danger. Four Americans including Ambassador Chris Stevens died that day. He has repeatedly covered up both the affair and the purging of American military officers.
►Article IV
As Commander-in-Chief, Barack Hussein Obama has given aid and comfort to America’s enemies. He has given weapons, training, transportation and both financial and diplomatic support to known and listed terrorist groups including but not limited to Al Qaeda, Al Nusra and the Taliban. They are being used by him to attack the people of Syria. In Syria his terrorists have burned mosques and churches. It was his terrorists who destroyed the oldest Christian church in the world. It had been founded in 50 AD. His terrorists beheaded a Christian man and fed his body to dogs. Al Qaeda and other terrorists funded by him have killed more than 40,000 black civilians in Libya after hostilities were over. This has greatly damaged America’s reputation throughout Africa.
►Article V
Barack Hussein Obama violated Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution when he allowed his Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and his Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey to testify before Congress telling them they no longer had the power to declare war. He had affirmed this usurpation of Congressional authority since then. This was an insult to the American people who had voted for candidates because they thought these men and women would put an end to wars that were not in the interests of the United States of America.
►Article VI
Barack Hussein Obama violated his oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States when he signed the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012. The NDAA allowed for the arrest and indefinite detention of American citizens without due process and access to either a lawyer or to the courts. No law can repeal the Bill of Rights. This requires an Amendment to the Constitution.
►Article VII
Barack Hussein Obama violated American law by ordering the killing of Anwar al-Awlaki, an American citizen, without due process. This was not on a battlefield. This man was acting as an agent of the American government. He had dined in the Pentagon after 9/11. He was used to recruit Muslims who fit the profile of patsies. His son was also subsequently targeted and killed by a drone.
►Article VIII
Barack Hussein Obama is guilty of gross incompetence in his appointments and administration of the Department of Justice, the FBI, the SEC, the CFTC, the FDIC and the Federal Reserve. He said that what the banks have done might be immoral but it clearly was not illegal. That is a lie. It is a criminal offense for a bank to create a false mortgage note to fraudulently lay claim to a home. It is also illegal to give a false rating to worthless bonds knowing that the person who paid for those ratings intended to defraud investors of trillions of dollars. He has allowed banks that laundered money for drug cartels and for terrorists to be given civil fines which were a small fraction of the profits made. And he has allowed these banks to escape criminal prosecution. He has compounded these felonies by giving Bailouts to and accepting campaign contributions from those individuals who committed tens of thousands if not millions of felonies.
►Article IX
Barack Hussein Obama violated Congressional authority and intent when he decided to issue an Executive Order to replace the Cyber Security bill which they had rejected. He has given DNS codes to the UN. Foreign nations can now deprive American citizens of their freedoms and properties by taking down access to American websites those nations do not like. This violates the rights of Americans by taking away both their freedom and property without due process.
►Article X
Barack Hussein Obama violated Congressional authority by issuing Executive Orders to take away the right of the citizens to bear arms which is guaranteed to them in the Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights. Inalienable rights granted to the people in the Constitution can only be changed by an Amendment. An Executive Order can only be used to carry out acts of Congress and to fulfill his duties as President.Posted on January 16, 2013 by horse237


IF more evidence is needed, to cement the above “call to action”, perhaps this video clip will move things forward – . Beyond crazy. Is this what America has come to?

As such, the above reflects several recent commentaries, and this is a good thing – . Patriotic marching orders, civil disobedience too, are part and parcel of ones national duty.

Who better than a Marine to intuit what needs to be done, particularly as he fights hard to free others in far away lands, only to find his own freedoms slipping away –, unfathomably, due to an out of control revolutionary POTUS! 

Yet even though the above author, to the “Articles of Impeachment”, prefers to remain anonymous (something this blogger is not in sync with), it is gratifying to know that other patriots are doing what needs to be done, by whatever means possible.

“When a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776.

The law of the land is crystal clear.  

The Moral Decline Of America…The Part Played By Progressives…Israel’s Essence Exposed…Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

Those who really believe in a Higher Power, in One G-d, will not gravitate towards progressive “ideals”, nor engage in “historicism”. They are diametrically opposing value systems. 

One holds true to “ethical monotheism” – ….the other to “progress” via muscle politics and intrusion into traditional families, paradoxically upheld under the banner of protecting the common man. Thereby, there are no moral givens, no rights, nor wrongs, everything is interchangeable and malleable to the winds of “change”. Hence, “progress” takes root –

But leave it to one devout Christian, and another devout Jew, to tear apart its underbelly, hence, making mince-meat meat out of the progressives and their so called “caring”. In effect, demonstrating the wreckage they have left in America’s wake, as well as all over the west.

Glenn Beck exposed the movement long before others had a clue – except for the leftist mischief makers! This blogger recalls all his tutelage, predicating his unceremonious dumping from FOX, coincidentally, as a Saudi royal grabbed up a piece of the action – . Nevertheless, Beck’s lessons are more than noteworthy, they are timely – Worth perusing…passing on too.

As to the Jewish side, not only is Professor Paul Eidelberg a well endowed scholar in America’s founding principles, but of Jewish thought too –

As such, he is no stranger to this blog’s commentary –…as well as a reliable and close associate.

His masterpieces are found within the links – …and continue below, as he explains America’s decline and Israel’s connection to history’s unfolding events.

‘America’s Decline and Israel’s Redemption’

Prof. Paul Eidelberg

From an intellectual perspective, signs of America’s decline appeared with the advent of Progressive Movement toward the end of the 19th century. The most prominent leader of Progressivism was Woodrow Wilson.

Philosophically understood, the concept of Progressivism denies fixed or trans-historical truths. Progressivism therefore resonates with historical relativism or “historicism.” It also resonates with evolutionary Darwinism which took academia by storm after the First World War.

Historicism entered American higher education early in the 20th century. The doctrine was ensconced in Johns Hopkins, Wilson’s alma mater.

Historicism, Progressivism, and evolutionary Darwinism are cousins. Just as Darwinism denies fixed species, so Progressivism and Historicism deny permanent or immutable truths. Both contradict America’s primary foundational document, the Declaration of Independence, whose pivotal concept is the “Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God,” the ultimate source of man’s inalienable rights to Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.  These rights entail limitations on the powers of government—of the One, the Few, and the Many.  The academic denial of the “Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God” is the first step toward a second American revolution.

Few have probed the intellectual causes of this bloodless revolution. It has been going on with increasing force for more than a century spearheaded by higher education.

Early evidence of this revolution appeared in a book written by, Carl Becker, “The Declaration of Independence” (1922). Becker, a historicist, portrayed the Declaration as a mere tract of the times. He negated the Declaration’s pivotal idea of “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God,” the source of man’s inalienable rights to Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.

Becker’s historicism was reinforced by evolutionary Darwinism. Darwinism is a materialistic doctrine. It contradicts the creation narrative of the Bible. So does Becker, who boldly states: “Much serious, minutely critical investigation into the origins of institutions seemed to show that all things human might be fully accounted for without recourse to God or the Transcendental Idea.”

Becker’s materialistic worldview was reinforced by Charles Beard’s Economic Interpretation of the Constitution of the United States. Such has been the number of its printings since 1913 that it became commonplace for historians and political scientists to explain the political principles of the Founding Fathers in terms of their economic interests. This is an example of the reductionism and crypto-Marxism—indeed, the cynicism—that has permeated the social sciences for more than a century.  Is anything more required to undermine a people’s reverence for their foundational documents?

Returning to Wilson: he not only rejected the Declaration’s concept of natural rights. He also rejected the Constitution’s system of institutional checks and balances. He targeted the constraints on the Executive branch. He regarded the President as the spokesman of the people, but in a new way. The President, he said, is to “move with the common impulse” and feel what ordinary men feel, to feel “what touches them to the quick.”

Wilson thus inaugurated what I called in 1974 the “politics of compassion.” This politics opposed the politics of the Founding Fathers, which I termed the “politics of magnanimity.” The latter identifies not with the few, and not with the many, but rather with the nation—with those structural principles and universal moral values that make this nation unique, exceptional, a nation that transcends the paltry and perennial conflict between the rich and the poor, a nation headed by statesmen, not politicians, statesmen whose love of fame is wedded to noble ideas, to immutable and transcendental truths.

Historical relativism cannot but degrade this lofty concept of statesmanship. This academic doctrine, which makes the philosopher a child of his times, also strips the statesman of intellectual independence. No longer is the statesman an educator. He becomes merely a policy maker, who may be nothing more than a puppet of the masses, for he must “move with the common impulse.”

Whereas the politics of magnanimity makes demands on and elevates the people, the politics of compassion undermines the people’s sense of personal responsibility and thus leads to the “nanny” state of which Wilson may be deemed the grandfather.

Fast forward to Barack Obama, the unlearned successor of the learned Woodrow Wilson. But note well that Obama, as a “post-American” President, augurs the end of American Exceptionalism.

What made his election possible was one hundred years of American “higher” education, an education steeped in the decrepit doctrine of moral relativism. This doctrine, which the present writer excoriated in an article of warning published in the Congressional Record (Senate) in 1968, has degraded the American people. It has corrupted countless opinion makers, lawmakers¸ decision makers, and judges—to which add America’s cultural elite, if we may take a liberal view of the word “culture.”

There is no way of undoing this insidious, century-long revolution by conventional politics. America has become a “Humpty-Dumpty.”

This decadence is of course symptomatic of what has happened to Western Civilization. This civilization ceased being civilized in proportion to its forsaking the Biblical heritage and yielding to the atheism spawned by scientific materialism and multicultural moral relativism.

The First World War that engulfed Christian Europe was a bloody refutation of “Progressivism” or the Idea of Progress—the conceit of the “Enlightenment.”  That war put a question mark on Christianity. Rabbi Avraham Isaac Kook (d. 1935), Israel’s first Chief Rabbi of Mandate Palestine said Western Civilization was bankrupt.

The most distinctive and greatest intellectual achievement of this civilization was science, above all, mathematical physics. It so happens, however, that the founders of modern science, Galileo and Newton, had bestowed upon the West a science devoid of any moral compass. The truth is that paganism still lurked in Christian Europe, whose nations, in contradistinction to saintly individual Christians, had not fully assimilated the ethical and intellectual monotheism imported from Israel.

The Great War brought this paganism to the surface. Europe, the heart of Western Civilization, of Christianity and humanism, was again drenched in rivers of blood.  Neither the religion of love nor humanism had made the nations of Europe truly righteous or humane. While the works of Goethe and Schiller, Herder and Schelling, Lessing and Schlegel may have illumined the salons of Europe, their influence was invisible during Hitler’s long night. Once against Jew-hatred has erupted in Europe. We see this sign of paganism in Europe’s support of the Arab Palestinians, an invented people that adorns its paganism in the guise of monotheism which threatens the world.

We should also recall, however, that the Great War not only terminated the Ottoman Empire, but also produced the Balfour Declaration, thus facilitating the rebirth of the State of Israel.

No doubt it will appear fanciful to say that just as a daughter of Israel saved Rome from utter barbarism, perhaps Israel herself will come to America’s? Since America no longer has the heart and the mind to confront the greatest enemy of civilization, perhaps the task has been left to minuscule Israel whose complete redemption requires the convergence of science and the Book of Truth.◙

There is a very valid reason why many progressives (even though they may align with liberal “religious” folds) eschew Christianity and Judaism, often mocking its principles in the public square. Believing Christians and devout Jews are depicted as primitives, whereas Muslims who follow Sharia Law (a political/quasi-religious ideology, one in which throat slitting, head chopping and every imaginable horror is sanctioned to execute the submission of infidels) are embraced and protected. 

Simply put, in order to institute “progress” one must also think within a totalitarian prism. Thus, the meeting of their minds –  progressives (aka reds) and Islamists (aka greens) –…as the Radical/Islamist-in-Chief marches towards tyranny.

The above fruits are demonstrative of anti-American, anti-Judeo/Christian  “progressive” labor.

Saving The U.S. Republic…Recognizing That Grabbing Guns Is One Part Of The Left’s Plan…Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

Adopting the expression,”seeing the forest from the trees”, is not just a euphemism to garner another’s attention. Its essence lies in ones ability to discern surrounding dangers, to ultimately save oneself, ones family and ones nation, even if some signals are not readily apparent. 

As such, uncomfortable questions for (seemingly) comfortable Americans must be addressed, even if doing so spoils the mood. Sorry. But another saying,”ignorance is bliss”, is only okey dokey if living in ones own dream world barely affects others. However, when ones penchant for veering away exacts monumental costs, the price of ones self-imposed ignorance is simply too high to pay.

Besides, the mountain of evidence, regarding the dangers to the Republic’s edifice, is too high to ignore, so starting herein makes perfect sense. Use this blog as a springboard… verily pleased, grateful to be able to do the heavy lifting…to be of service.

One such building block is internalizing what “mama Janet”, and Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s alter ego, Valerie Jarrett, have in store – Not good news, at least if one is an American patriot, thereby, concerned about the shredding of the Constitution. 

The danger is so obvious and nation-shattering, even a Marine (many others too) has taken them to task – … publicly upbraiding the Senator from California, as well as her leftist/progressive comrades.

Thereby, this blogger would be remiss in her duty, if she didn’t point out an immediate need for “marching orders” – … in whatever way one can contribute to the nation-saving cause.

Yet patriots can always count on certain folks to shine a spotlight on the issue, and Douglas Hagmann, from Northeast Intelligence Network, is one such example to follow.

‘It’s about more than guns’ – Northeast Intelligence Network, Jan. 10, 2013

“The war we face is not just about guns. It’s about our survival as a nation and the fate of our children, grandchildren and future generations. Which side of history will you be on?


By Douglas J. Hagmann

10 January 2013:  The warning signs of a tyrannical takeover of our Constitutional Republic have been flashing red for some time now and are now reaching a fever pitch. Despite the flashing signs, the clamor of the alarms and the cries of the watchmen, most Americans of this era remain in denial or have been rendered intellectually catatonic by busily chasing immediate gratification in the form of the newest version of the iPhone, iPad, or whatever “i” device will satisfy their ADHD addled intellect.

Others have simply chosen to adhere to a normalcy bias that is continuously fed by the familiar faces and voices of political pundits who remain dedicated to the lie of the right-left, Republican-Democrat paradigm of American politics, unwilling or unable to look at the larger picture for fear of being shamed by accusations of being part of a conspiracy fringe. Instead, these pundits would rather ignore the lie and squander their ability to make a difference, to educate and inform others of the dangers of the lie they know exists.

We must realize that we are not witnessing the fundamental change of America as represented by the mindless mantra of the Obama campaign, but something much deeper, much more nefarious, and something that will not be rectified through the ballot box. As uncomfortable as it is, what we face cannot and will not wait for the next general election.

Actions have consequences, but so does inaction.

We are living in a time in history where some will rise to be held in high esteem as heroes in history books that have yet to be written, and victims who never saw their unfortunate status coming or were fooled into believing that things are not as bad as some make them out to be. The former will suffer greatly by selfless acts performed to save what previous generations have fought to preserve, while the latter will remain complicit by their cluelessness and catatonic in ignorance that will be anything but blissful.

The fuse that will ignite one of the most turbulent times in American and global history has been lit and now burns with incredible speed. It’s ignition is neither an accident nor does it originate from good intent, but a deliberate act by a “deluded elite” advancing an agenda that is so breathtakingly evil that it defies all rationality.

Hanlon’s Razor does not apply

There is a familiar adage known as Hanlon’s Razor that states “[N]ever attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.” Unfortunately, too many people have chosen to believe that the events we are seeing, including all of the related consequences, are due to the incompetence of those who have been elected and appointed to lead our nation. This is particularly evident by those who continue to purvey the defunct notion of the right-left, Republican-Democrat paradigm of American politics, and the people who follow them.

The Agenda

We are not witnessing incompetence, but the fulfillment of an agenda generations in the making. A century ago our Republic experienced a coup in the form of a monetary takeover through the creation of the Federal Reserve, followed by a consolidation of power through the IRS. We were slowly being led into a system of global governance by the same international banking cabal that exists today. Yet, too few understand the larger picture.

Over a half-century ago, Senator Joe McCarthy was vilified by trying to warn Americans that our government was being infiltrated by Communists. Much like today, his warnings went unheeded, and the infiltration of the Communist element into America thrived. History books have been not only been unkind, but incorrect, as we are bearing witness today to the very threat of which he warned. In fact, documents and testimony related to his findings were found to have been inexplicably removed from the national archives. Not in the 1950′s, but as late as the 1990′s. The timing of such removal is no accident.

The Communist infiltration combined with the Islamic infiltration, the Balkanization of America through our open borders and lax immigration enforcement, and numerous other policies and practices antithetical to the survival of our Republic have been embraced and advanced by both political parties to bring us to the point we find ourselves today. We are on the verge of a civil war, exactly as warned by my source inside the DHS last spring.

This civil war is designed to divide America, to soften us and ultimately destroy us from within. United, our Republic poses an insurmountable impediment of the implementation of a global society rooted in Communism and disguised as social progressivism. The methods of implementation are not secret. They are outlined in part by the Cloward-Piven strategy, and well documented by Carroll Quigley, a god of the Clinton power structure. At the base of the agenda exist the Fabian Socialists, Karl Marx. Antonio Gramsci, and the Frankfort School of neo-Marxist interdisciplinary social theory.

Bitter clingers in the cross-hairs

Today, we find ourselves at the precipice of a tyrannical takeover and the complete destruction of our Republic, best illustrated by the talk of disarming the American populace.

The assertion is that the it’s for the children when, in fact, the children are being used as political capital to advance the political agenda of American disarmament, loss of liberty, sovereignty, and the rights bestowed on our Republic by God as enumerated by our Constitution.   Notice how there is a war not only against gun owners, but a parallel war against the very Judeo-Christian principles on which this country was founded.

Today, we are facing a crisis of epic proportions where you will have to choose a side. Will you be the one who stands bravely and alone before a column of tanks, or will continue on your quest for instant gratification?

The war we face is not just about guns. It’s about our survival as a nation and the fate of our children, grandchildren and future generations. Which side of history will you be on?”

America simply can’t afford non-involved citizens, at least at this perilous juncture. Every generation is called upon to do its national duty, each according to their ability.

The calling of our times is not only national in scope, for its outcome directly impacts western civilization’s survival. Once lost, never to be regained for many, many generations.

It is that serious. That imperative. 

Pre-Israeli Election “Food For Thought”…Addendum To: Israel’s Electoral Season Hotter Than Hot…Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

As indicated in several blog commentaries there are three political scientists worth taking very seriously. Once again, they include Professor Louis Rene Beres (who resides in the U.S.), Professor Paul Eidelberg and Dr. Martin For the record, most of this blogger’s “go to” contacts hail from outside the academic community, and for good reason.

Be that as it may, Israel is entering its most perilous juncture in recent history, and that is saying much, for a nation always on the brink. With Iran close to attaining nuclear-armed status (PM Netanyahu attached Israel’s fate to Washington’s dictates, but never mind…); with the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood Mafia ascendant all over the Mid East; and with the Hamas/PA Fatah terror junta embedded within our heartland, Israel requires an absolute steady pair of hands to guide the ship of state.

As such, the penning of a recent commentary, “Israel’s Electoral Season Hotter Than Hot…This Blog’s Pick” was mandatory – .

In this regard, it is more than efficacious to glean trenchant insights from one who not only understand’s Israel’s political process, but its main players. In addition, Professor Eidelberg has written major books on western democratic principles – starting with a trilogy – before immigrating to Israel – “Eidelberg wrote a trilogy on America’s founding fathers: The Philosophy of the American Constitution (ISBN 0819153419), On the Silence of the Declaration of Independence (ISBN 0870232169), and a Discourse on Statesmanship (ISBN 0252004280) – “. His political acumen speaks for itself.

Thereby,”Trapped” is an understatement, regarding where Israel finds itself.


Prof. Paul Eidelberg

Israel is trapped, trapped in lies which no Israeli prime minister and no Knesset Member—indeed, not even aspirants for the dubious honor of becoming an MK—dares expose, without bringing down the political structure of this cockamamie state.  Since Israelis are about to form, if I am not mistaken, another government led by Benjamin Netanyahu, allow me to repeat what I have previously revealed about Israel’s political leaders.

Shortly after making aliya to Israel in August 1976, I was asked by my friend General Chaim Laskov (z”l), a former IDF Chief of General Staff, to meet with Shimon Peres, then Minister of Defense under the Labor-led government of Yitzhak Rabin. The American presidential election was two months away, and Laskov wanted me to share my thoughts on the subject with the Defense Minister.

Mr. Peres and I met in his Knesset office. He was accompanied by his confidant, Yehoshafat Harkabi, a Hebrew University professor of political science and former head of military intelligence.  Toward the end of a 50-minute meeting, I was asked by Peres: “What do you think will be Israel’s main problem in the United States after the November presidential election?”  I replied: “To counter the Arab slogan of ‘self-determination for the Palestinian people.’”  To my astonishment, Professor Harkabi responded by saying “That’s irrelevant.”

I was astounded because Harkabi should have known that the Arab slogan of “self-determination for the Palestinian people” provides the government of the United States with a democratic pretext for appeasing Arab dictatorships linked to American corporate interests in the Middle East, especially in the Persian Gulf. Surely Harkabi was aware of the two-fold fraud in that Arab slogan. Inasmuch as he himself had written that Islam is a “combatant,” “expansionist,” and “authoritarian” creed, it should have been obvious to him that Islam, both in theory and in practice, utterly rejects the democratic principle of self-determination.[1] Indeed, at the time of our meeting he was on record as saying that an Arab Palestinian homeland is “a euphemistic equivalent for the liquidation of Israel” (p. 473).[2]

As for the claim that the Arabs residing in Judea, Samaria, and Gaza comprise a distinct “Palestinian people,” this has ever been an Arab hoax.[3]  Harkabi, a reputed expert on the Middle East, surely knew that there are no ethnic and religious differences whatever between the Arabs in question and their brethren in Jordan or even in Israel for that matter. [As Newt Romney, former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives admitted, the Palestinians are an “invented people” whose purpose, as any candid observer would see, is to annihilate the people of Israel. No Israeli Prime Minister has had the courage to say this, and if he did, it would be tantamount to accusing his predecessors since the 1993 Israel-PLO Agreement of criminal negligence if not treason. Israel is trapped in a litany of lies.

If proof is needed, a few days after meeting with Peres I was asked by the Defense Ministry to speak with his political adviser, Asher Ben Natan, a former ambassador to France and to Germany.  During the course of our conversation I asked Mr. Natan: “What do you think is Israel’s main problem?”  He answered:  “We can’t lie as well as the Arabs.” To this I responded:  “Then why not tell the truth?” The answer appears in the previous paragraph.

Israeli politicians persist in this deadly charade. Have you heard any of today’s candidates for Knesset membership say in unambiguous language that peace with the Palestinians is a delusion or a self-serving lie? Here is a related prevarication.

Mr. Netanyahu (like Shimon Peres) believes, or would have us believe, that Israel can buy the Arabs, can make them bourgeois democrats. Just give them the means of enjoying the accoutrements and luxuries of middle class Americans ad peace will follow. This crypto-Marxist panacea infects capitalists well as socialists. Materialism trumps religion. The mentality of Esav is quite prevalent among Israeli politicians who look upon Islam with contempt.

But these Israelis ignore the fact that the self-styled Palestinians, who lie so well, and who tell Jews ready to believe them that for $5,000 dollars they would leave Eretz Israel—these Arabs are but a minute fraction of a billion and more Muslims whose leaders are committed to Israel’s annihilation, and who thrive by demonizing the Jewish state if only to redirect the hatred and grievances of their own people.

Even some ambitious religionists are trapped in lies.”

Israelis will go to the polls this coming Tuesday, despite all the above dangers. Therefore, Professor Eidelberg”s analysis is more than relevant to Israel’s future. Dare this blogger suggest, even to nations beyond its borders.

Most significantly, who among the leadership will stand up, to finally expose the “lie of all lies”? Is there a statesman among the bunch? The jury is still out. Jewish nationalists – religious and secular alike – are (impatiently) waiting.

Benghazigate Update: Its Continual Carnage/Fallout…ALL “Credit” Due To The Islamist-in-Chief…Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

EVER since the Islamist-in-Chief’s (seemingly) inexplicable “outreach” to the Muslim world, events in the Middle East – and beyond – have gone to hell-in-a-hand basket. Yet the above assessment isn’t even harsh enough. In fact, there aren’t enough duly descriptive adjectives, to explain the devastation that his policies have sown. More than a hell on earth.

Yet many still have the audacity, the sheer brazenness, to posit: the POTUS means well, albeit he is misguided by others, or some such balderdash! Newsflash: he knows EXACTLY what he is doing, and where he is heading.

That being said, his foreign policy (Islamic) wreckage was purposefully initiated in 2009 during his “outreach” in Cairo, carefully reconstructed herein –…and within its many commentary links.

NOT satisfied being an Islamist-in-Chief, he turned his attention to becoming the Pyromaniac-in-Chief, and this is not hyperbole. His footprints/fingerprints are documented in full. For posterity.

Let this blogger lead the way, alongside a Four Star Admiral, who similarly indicts the Brotherhood aligned Commander-in-Chief  –

To make matters more despicable, femme fatales are deep in the mix, as one (and who know how many others) diddled the top brass – .

Therefore, is it at all shocking, that newly hostage Americans (and other westerners) are the latest fall out from Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s illegal war in Libya, aka, the biggest gun running/weapons smuggling operation in U.S. history, bar none?

‘Dark uncertainty over more than 50 Algerian gas field hostages’

DEBKAfile  Exclusive Report  January 18, 2013

“On January 11, a few hundred French troops and a handful of fighter jets and gunships launched a campaign against Islamist terrorists in Mali, a West African desert vastness larger than Texas and California combined. This former French colony appealed to Paris for aid to throw back a mixed al Qaeda-rebel advance on the capital, Bamako.

But France, no more than the US, had learned from the Afghanistan War that Al Qaeda cannot be beaten by aerial warfare – certainly not when the jiahdists are highly trained in special forces tactics and backed by highly mobile, well-armed local militias, armed with advanced anti-aircraft weapons and knowledgeable about conditions in the forbidding Sahara.

Within 48 hours, this modest “crusader” intervention had united a host of pro-al Qaeda offshoots and allies, some of them castoffs from the army of Libya’s deposed Muammar Qaddafi.
They are led by Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb – AQIM; the West African jihadist MUJAO; and the Somali al-Shabaab which is linked to Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula – AQAP. Together, they are threatening to execute one by one the 10 or eleven French hostages they are holding as part of their revenge on France.
The French declared their mission to be to dislodge the Islamists from an area larger than Afghanistan in the north, including the principal towns of Timbuktu, Gao and Kidal. Without several thousand special forces’ troops on the ground, this is just a pipedream.
The disaffected Touareg tribes are supporting al Qaeda against the French as part of their drive for independence. Their added value is the training in special forces’ tactics some 1,500 Touareg fighting men and their three officers received from the US.  The US originally reserved them as the main spearhead of a Western Saharan multi-tribe campaign to eradicate al Qaeda in North and West Africa.
Instead, the Sahel tribesmen followed the Touareg in absconding to Mali with top-quality weapons for desert warfare and hundreds of vehicles from US and ex-Libyan military arsenals.

This major setback for US administration plans and counter-terror strategy in Africa tied in with Al Qaeda’s assassination of US Ambassador Chris Stevens and three of his staff in Benghazi last September. Because the United States held back from direct US military action in both cases, Qaeda has been allowed to go from strength to strength and draw into its fold recruits from Mali’s neighbors. They are tightening their grip on northern Mali and have imposed a brutal version of Islam on its inhabitants, putting hundreds to flight.

France stepped in when al Qaeda drove south to extend its rule to all parts of Mali and pose a terrorist threat to Europe.”  

Update here too: …but do take special note of this explosive tidbit “One of the two terrorists the captors want freed is Omar Abdel Rahman, who masterminded the 1993 World Trade Center bombing…..” and intertwine it with the previous commentary, re Morsi’s Brotherhood Mafia, the Islamist-in-Chief’s “go to” guy – Coming full circle.

It goes without saying (or it should), every dead American associated with the POTUS’s incendiary actions in Libya – a DIRECT outgrowth of bringing the Muslim Brotherhood Mafia to power – lies at his doorstep, irrespective of how many years pass. Cause and effect.

NO statute of limitations should apply, once the evidence is shown in full. Indictment(s) must follow, or the “rule of law” will cease to exist. Permanently.

The Patch Quilt Connection Between Obama’s Mysterious/Non-Transparent Past & His CIA Pick…Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

Anyone who dares to explore, or otherwise expose, Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s crazier than a loon’s convoluted history is relegated to kooksville and the fringes of “polite” society. Mentioning his birth certificate will effectively bring the wrath of the left down on your head, as if to question: who are you to have the temerity to question “The One”?

How dare they attempt an omerta. Who are they, the Mafia? Besides, this blogger is very familiar with the left’s tactics, having walked its tightrope many times. It becomes a necessary evil, while (business) networking within the confines of the upper east and west sides of New York City. Better to be a fly on the wall.

So when one becomes familiar with their playgrounds, the intimidation factor recedes. Therefore, digging is so much easier because it involves sifting through the left’s garbage. And if any of the poohbahs believe they will stop the hunt, they are indeed delusional.

That being said, let’s be as forthright as possible, regarding the POTUS’s less than transparent background – . This blogger understands very well, the Radical/Islamist-in-Chief is not the man-child he purports to be. Not at all.

Along comes his CIA nominee, John Brennan, and an antenna reared its head. Again, too many skeletons rattling in their co-joined closets –

Another patriotic blogger is similarly positing –

‘John Brennan – The CIA – Zbigniew Brzezinski – Columbia University and Obama’

January 10, 2013

“While attending Occidental University, 1979 – 81′, young Barack Obama meets a former Jimmy Carter administration official Zbigniew Brzezinski.  Brzezinski is a key CIA asset and expert on Russia.   He later becomes a mentor, and then much later a foreign policy advisor to President Elect Obama.

Obama is friends with three Pakistani college roommates, muslims, Mohammed Hasan Chandio, Wahid Hamid, and Indian Vinai Thummalapally.   In the summer of 1981 Obama travelled with his friends to Pakistan.

Brzezinski with Osama Bin Laden in Afghanistan

Brezinski was deeply involved in the U.S. aspects to support Osama Bin Laden against the Russians in Afghanistan.   Pakistan was the base of operations against the Russians in support of the Mujahadeen.  Simultaneous to this time Brezinski is in Pakistan / Afghanistan, so is John Brennan as part of his CIA duty.

BEAR WITH ME – Obama goes to Pakistan in the summer of 1981 and then for some reason there is a gap in his historical references and timeline.  He does not reappear until the fall of 1982 attending Columbia (?) – or so the story is told, where he graduated in May of 1983.   (This timeline has always been a thorn in my psyche of reconciliation).

Obama and Pakistani friend Hasan ChandooThe trip to Pakistan was unexpectedly notedin an April 2008 fundraiser .  We wrote about it HERE.    Just two weeks before this speech and surprise announcement of his 1981 visit to Pakistan, employees of John Brennan  (who would become Obama’s terror chief) were caught tampering with Obama’s passport files. It should be noted  that “Obama’s top terrorism and intelligence adviser, John O. Brennan, heads a firm that was cited in March 2008 (just before this April fundraiser) for breaching sensitive files in the State Department’s passport office, according to a State Department Inspector General’s report released July 2009.  On April 19th the key figure Lt. Quarles Harris Jr., 24, who had been cooperating with a federal investigators, was found slumped dead inside a car.

However, against the backdrop of events at the time in 1981 Pakistan/Afghanistan, andundefinedagainst the backdrop of both Brennan and Brzezinski being in the same area, at exactly the same time, things are adding up.

Again, consider Obama reportedly walked away from a full ride scholarship at Occidental the summer of 81′ never to return.  Instead he turns up, on paper only, at Columbia University the fall of 82′.   But no-one, I mean NO-ONE has ever noted him ever having attended there – Consider:

1) “Columbia University will not divulge whether the “alleged” diploma issued was in the name of Barry Soetoro or Barack Hussein Obama. No public record exists regarding the diploma.”

2) “Obama alleges he attended Columbia in 1982, 1983. But, the investigators have been UNABLE to turn up a single shred of written documentation for the years 1981, 1982, 1983, 1984 that show where Obama appeared on a school roster, register, faculty memo, bulletin board, school awards, dean’s list; where Obama’s name appeared in a yearbook, club record, fraternity record, extra curricular activity member roster, student newspaper, student radio or TV activity; where Obama appeared in any records as a worker, employee, laborer in or about Columbia University; where Obama enrolled in any sports activity or program.”

3) “As a graduating senior in 1983 he does not appear in any Political Science (his major) or Graduating Class yearbook or invitation records.”

4) “There is absolutely no documentation of any kind to show Obama attended, lived, worked or played at Columbia University during the investigated 4 years.”

5) “Interviewed professors, college employees, students (who were at Columbia during the years in question) have failed to turn up a single person that can remember Obama. This is irrefutable evidence. Think about your own situation if Obama had attended your college? A “now-famous” person went to your school? Many would be able to say, “Of course I remember.” At Columbia, not a single person has been able to say he or she remembers Obama.”   (link)

Obama meets CIA Brzezinski, who is exiting the term of Jimmy Carter, and is frequenting Afghanistan.   Brzezinski is a mentor to Obama.  John Brennan is in Afghanistan too.    The support of the Mujahadeen against Russia is job #1.

Obama takes a trip to Pakistan/Afghanistan with Pakistani friends who happen to be from government families, and are also not aligned with sympathies to Russia, and supportive ideologically, of the Mujahadeen.  Go figure?

And, um, well, additionally…. how did young ‘impoverished’ Barack afford such global travel?  Those ain’t exactly cheap airline tickets, no?  Or was someone else covering the costs and subsequent expenses?

Is this where Brzezinski, Brennan and Obama’s paths cross?   Using the connections of Obama who is travelling with Wahid Hamid and staying in Karachi withMohammed Hasan Chandoo’s family, and visiting Hyderabad as well.

We know Obama also made friends with Chairman of Senate, Muhammadmian Soomro,who said that in Pakistan he [Obama] came to know about Sunni and Shia sects.   According to the report of Larry Rohter of April 10, 2008, in The New York Times, the Obama campaign staff, when questioned about the revelation of Obama’s 1981 trip to Karachi, stated:

“Mr. Obama visited Pakistan in 1981, on the way back from Indonesia, where his mother and half-sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng, were living. He spent ‘about three weeks’ there, Mr. Obama’s press secretary, Bill Burton, said, staying in Karachi with the family of a college friend, Mohammed Hasan Chandoo, but also traveling to Hyderabad, in India.”

We know the three week story was BS.   We know because it was perhaps the most important revelation never discussed by the media:

Where was Obama from the time he left Occidental to travel to Pakistan via Indonesia, to the time he entered Columbia – Which is Documented and Verified to be September 1982?   Where was he?  By his own admission this is the year he traveled to Pakistan. The historical claim is he attended Columbia University after Occidental, but amid the discovery evidence in the Dr. Orly Taitz  v. Obama lawsuit we find Exhibit #3  Columbia official records show him attending Columbia university only for nine months September 1982-till May 1983.   One complete School Fall/Winter – Winter/Spring year.  (Exhibit #3 – Click to Enlarge)

The following paragraphs have been extracted from Taitz’ First Amended Complaint, filed at the U. S. District Court for the District of Columbia:

27. Further records from the Student Clearing House show even more shocking evidence. In his memoirs and multiple speeches Obama wrote that he studied for two years at Columbia University September 1981-May 1983. He admitted that in summer of 1981 he traveled to Pakistan to visit his friends, but repeatedly claimed that from September 1981 until May of 1983 he resided in New York and studied at Columbia University.

Taitz ran a check of his years of attendance at Columbia university and found out that Columbia official records show him attending Columbia university only for nine months September 1982-till May 1983 (Exhibit 3 — last line — click to enlarge), which means that the President of the United States lied to the whole nation about his whereabouts for a whole year September 1981 until September 1982. One year absence is the best case scenario, as he could get his university credit by reciprocity or through external studies.

28. As there is no record of Obama residing anywhere else in the United States from September 1981-September 1982, or attending any other university, by way of simple deduction it becomes clear that his visit to Pakistan lasted not a month or two, as he claims, but may have lasted for over a year. (continue reading)

Granted,  Dr. Taitz is somewhat of an odd personality, but the context of the Columbia University record is not a matter of her personality or agenda. Nor is it subject to opinion or spin.   It is a fact.  It is what it is.  This missing timeline directly contradicts Obama’s own words, and the construct of the narrative he and his fellow colleagues had created.

However, if you consider he never attended Columbia at that time, because he stayed in Pakistan, things make sense.  Not only do they make sense – they actually reconcile.

The “mystery Obama thesis” which just so happens to have turned up in Columbia – though no-one can remember him writing it, was about, wait for it,…..  ”an analysis of the evolution of the arms reduction negotiations between the Soviet Union and the United States“.   Oh boy, who would have been around to write such a specific thesis paper for cover?   It certainly is in the proverbial sweet spot for Brzezinski, no?

And then there’s the matter of how did Barack Obama gain entry into, and afford, Harvard Law School?  Mr. John O Brennan spent most of his C.I.A. career as an analyst, but during the 1990s served a tour as the chief of the station in Saudi Arabia.

[…]  In late March 2008, a former Manhattan Borough president Percy Sutton told a New York cable channel that a former business partner who was “raising money” for Obama had approached him in 1988 to help Obama get into Harvard Law School.

In this video interview, Sutton says he first heard of Obama about twenty years ago from Khalid Al-Mansour, who Sutton described as advisor to “one of the world’s richest men,” Saudi prince Alwaleed bin Talal.  Sutton knew Al-Mansour well, since the two men had been business partners and served on several corporate boards together.

As Sutton remembered, Al-Mansour was raising money for Obama’s education and seeking recommendations for him to attend Harvard Law School.

“I was introduced to (Obama) by a friend who was raising money for him,” Sutton told NY1 city hall reporter Dominic Carter. “The friend’s name is Dr. Khalid al-Mansour, from Texas.”

Apparently, al-Mansour serves on the Board of, among others, Saudi African Bank and was responsible for the Africa investment activities of Kingdom Holdings, Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal’s investment company.

Is this how it all finally ties together?  I mean what are the odds that both CIA operatives Brennan and Brezinski would be in Pakistan at the same time young Obama was there, and then both men end up on his advisory team in 2008, 26 years later  – at the same time the State Dept Passport records are breached by John Brennan’s company specifically regarding Obama?   The same guy who Obama just nominated to be CIA Director.

Seriously, give me odds?

Was the Columbia University angle just a CIA cover story, replete with faux documents, just to cover for Obama’s time in Pakistan as a liason between affiliated political interests, the circles of his friends parents, in support of the Mujahadeen/U.S. objectives?

The odd thing is, this outline explains every single disconnected theory, reconciles all the fragmented narratives, and actually solves all the disjointed narratives simultaneously.”

Oh yeah, and let’s not forget this recent jewel:  Famous Jew Hater Brzezinski Defends Hagel As Candidate For Defense Secretary – Anyone Opposed to Hagel is Loyal To The Jews too.

A seemingly never ending nightmare. When and where will it end? What will be the ultimate catalyst to “The One’s” undoing? Inquiring minds want/need to know!

Israel’s Electoral Season Hotter Than Hot…This Blog’s Pick…Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

NOT unlike American politics, Israel’s electoral season heats up the citizenry to the nth degree. There is nothing like it. You should see people (otherwise rational folks, who else would one associate with) screaming at the tv, as candidates hawk their messages through the time allotted them, depending on party size etc. Even this blogger becomes mesmerized, thus, championing the message of her party, aka, “Tet Bet“…will clarify below. 

Yet, as imperfect as the U.S. system is, it beats Israel’s hands down. Basically, aside from obvious voter fraud (sometimes) perpetrated on the voters, voting directly for ones candidate, as opposed to (corrupt) part lists, stands for something – it is much easier to throw the bums out! Few understand the pernicious effects of a multi-party parliamentary system –…less than a squishy democracy. But for those truly interested in its destructive force, this blogger refers her readers to a close associate, Professor Paul Eidelberg, Israel’s pre-eminent expert on electoral politics –…here too –

The subject is so important – at least to Israelis – that have written several op-eds on its fatal flaws, as evidenced within – .

Despite its systemic, deficient underpinnings, voters still need to find a “home”. As such, many nationalists, formally devoted Likud voters (“Likudniks”), have jumped ship. One may rightfully (no pun intended) ask: where to? Well, along comes PM Netanyahu’s ex Chief of Staff, Naftali Bennett – – capturing the hearts and minds of scores of Jewish nationalists, secular and religious alike, via his appropriately named party,“Jewish Home”.

His nationalist ethos, his bridge between secular and religious, and his ability to think rationally/logically (is it any coincidence that he is also a successful hi-tech entrepreneur, capable of really seeing “from here to there”?…there is linkage) is self evident, whether one agrees with his politics or not. He is a force to be reckoned with. You should see him debate…whether in the U.S. or in Israel…in English or in Hebrew. Takes your breath away – …. .

But for those still wedded to Likud’s strong nationalist bonafides, you may want to recalibrate your calculus, understanding why Bennett’s solid moorings are needed to shore Likud up, thereby, giving them a spine. In tandem, hopefully, Otzma  an additional nationalist party, will serve as another counterweight. 

Likud’s disappointing list is long, but it is exemplified herein: 

For if anything is emblematic of Likud’s incapability to thwart the leftists at Israel’s throat, the so called “disengagement”, bulldozed through by PM Sharon (another Likudnik), is its poster child – . NEVER to be forgotten. NEVER to be forgiven.

Just imagine what it took for stalwart Zionist, Caroline Glick, to take the Likud’s PM to task – More than enough to give a nationalist pause.

Similarly, this blogger recognizes spineless leaders when she sees them, regardless of their highly capable oratory skills –…not even worth a hill of beans.

Nevertheless, rest assured, Bennett understands that Likud will come out on top. In fact, he still supports Likud, as opposed to Labor (the socialist’s backyard), knowing full well it is either one or the other which will steer the ship of state. Regardless, he internalizes what many clear thinkers realize about Israeli politics – political muscle rules. Thus, the stronger Jewish Home is, the more viable a bulwark it will be, to effectively support the Jewish homeland – and not just in  rhetoric!

Alas, Bennett’s party (Tet Bet) wouldn’t be necessary, if history hadn’t proven that Likud – a supposed nationalist party – always caved to Washington’s & international dictates, whenever Zionist interests were not to their liking. Of course, Likud feigned otherwise. 

To wit, GO – Jewish Home/Habayit Hayehudi/Tet Bet !!
