If It Were Us…

If America was Israel
If The US Were In Israel’s Position

I think we could all be assured that, if some group were launching rockets daily at various American cities and towns, Obama would set aside his fund-raisers, vacations – maybe even his golf games – and come out of his semi-retirement to deal with the crisis in a manner that we come to expect of him based upon his performance and leadership to-date.

As Rahm Emanuel, Obama’s former chief of staff, counseled, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.” So Obama’s first order of business would be finding some way to blame Americans, especially the Republican party, for the terrorist attacks. After that, Obama’s would response would be carefully constructed and tailored to meet the threat based upon just who the terrorists were and where the missiles were falling.

Obviously, if the ones launching the missiles were Blacks, Hispanics, or Muslims the Obama-driven response would have to be soothing rhetoric, attempts at rapprochement, and calls for restraint in response to the sad actions of these oppressed groups who’ve been pushed over the edge by the institutional racism and/or religious intolerance of America.

Equally obviously, if the ones launching the missiles were Whites, Christians, or – gasp! – the TEA Party, it’d be a safe bet that Obama would declare martial law and send the military in to destroy these horrible, vicious terrorists.

Not Surprising

Posted in Politics, Religion, Society on July 24th, 2014

I love living in New York but I freely admit that there’s a lot of things in NYC that are not so great to see. This is especially true of Times Square if one is un-thrilled with in-your-face mercantilism and marketing. This is what makes CAMERA’s billboard, placed in Times Square just outside the offices of the New York Times‘ newsroom, such a great joy to behold.

Neither Hamas' nor the NY Times attacks upon Israel's Jews is surprising
Not Surprising At All

And the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America (CAMERA) is 100% correct. It neither surprising that hate-filled Muslims that make up the jihadist terrorist group, Hamas attack Israel with rockets not that the Lamestream Media, exemplified by the New York Times, attacks Israel with their pens. Jihad is jihad – whether it’s the honestly violent Jihad as-sayf (jihad of the sword) of the Muslim terrorists or the more cowardly Jihad bi-al-Lisan (jihad of the tongue) and Jihad bi-al-Qalam (jihad of the pen) of America’s ever-antisemitic MSM.

How could it be surprising when the Lamestream media and the Liberals and Progressives they pander to are nothing but the other side of the coin of the Muslims’ genocidal jihad? Hamas wouldn’t exist if these anti-Semites didn’t consistently support them. Hamas certainly wouldn’t be using their own children – supposed noncombatants – as human shields if the MSM wasn’t eager to sensationalize the deaths of the children and blame Israel, and Israel alone, for their deaths.

The Carboniferous Ends?

Posted in Politics, The Environment on July 21st, 2014

A cooling world covered in snowChange is unavoidable. All epochs, periods, eras, and ages come to an end. Just as 360 million years ago the Carboniferous period ended, so too does it seem as if the New Carboniferous period – notable for its fixation upon CO2 – has come to a not-untimely end.

Then, this was never a sustainable era due to its chilling effects upon economies.

The ending of the New Carboniferous period will likely be dated from the moment that the Australian Government has abolished the carbon tax it had imposed in mid-2012.

Australia’s recent vote to repeal its tax on carbon dioxide emissions is a setback to establishing a similar charge in the U.S., both sides in the debate agree.

Australia started taxing carbon in 2012, one of about 40 jurisdictions to do so, before reversing course last week and becoming the first country to repeal the penalty.

The repeal will send international shock waves ahead of Global Warming talks next year, when major economies like China, India and America will consider global greenhouse targets beyond 2030. Given that Australia is similar to America in its energy-intensive lifestyles and industries, the repeal makes it highly unlikely that the US will choose to try taxes CO2 emissions.

The Warmists are, of course, gnashing their teeth in shock, outrage, and hatred over Australia’s repeal of the its carbon tax. Like the giant arthropods of the first Carboniferous period, they’re doomed to extinction. Unlike them, however, they can see the ending of the age and of themselves.
