The National Jewish Democratic Council said it was confident Chuck Hagel would follow what it called President Obama’s “unprecedented” pro-Israel record. The statement Monday morning came before Obama’s formal announcement expected later Monday nominating Hagel, a former Republican senator, for defense secretary. “President Barack Obama’s unprecedented pro-Israel credentials are unquestionable, and setting policy starts and stops with the president,” said the statement, which was not attached to the name of an NJDC official. “While we have expressed concerns in the past, we trust that when confirmed, former Senator Chuck Hagel will follow the President’s lead of providing unrivaled support
Plantation managers? Move like affection from those who turn the ovens on. These people are delusional. Do they actually believe they are immune from the hatred the marxists have for them? They should carefully look at how the marxists have dehumanized the unborn, the elderly and the ill, not much of a step to declare a class of living, breathing, healthy people a burden on society. It´s been done before.
First of all, do you really think that the average USA citizen will get involved in a debate about whether or not someone´s allegiance lies with a foreign entity, and that that would decide the nomination? Secondly, from the few Jewish friends I have here in MA,they care nothing for Israel and are totally low-information voters with college degrees.
I´m going to go out on a limb here and say the whole anti-semitism card has been overplayed by the right and making us look rather callow. There are plenty of worse decisions Barry has made other than the one to appoint Hagel, a former GOP member from the Heartland, to SecDef. The Constitution makes very clear that the preezy of the steezy can appoint "officers" of his choosing, albeit w/ consent. Plus, the gay mafia hates Hagel, so there´s a silver lining here.
David Harris is the individual who accused Sheldon Adelson of allowing prostitution in his Chinese casinos. Harris published the allegation even though he knew it was a lie. Alan Dershowitz has called for him to step down as CEO. Not much of an endorsement.
Isn´t it time to come up with a name for Jewish people who repudiate their religion and are Jews by ethnicity only? It would seem that many Jews who are proud of being Jewish have no use for religion of any kind, let alone Judaism, nor any use for Israel. Jews in name only? Secular Jews? I know so many observant Jews that lumping them in in any way with scum like, say, Chuck U. Schumer seems a slap in the face to them.
Republicans would be wise to let Obomination have this nomination as I´m sure he´s expecting a fight, and then he will try to paint the GOP as group he just can´t work with.
Republicans in the House and Senate need to let the liberal Democrat agenda be exposed in full view.
The Democrats are already campaigning for 2014 mid-term elections and want to make Republicans look like they don´t know what they´re doing - look they can´t even support one of their own former U.S. Senators from Nebraska, blah, blah...
#12, self loathing jews is the best label I can think of. This self loathing became evident during the black power days of the late 1960s and early 1970s, when jewish professors allowed the blacks to denigrate them on campus. It was a painful time in the academic world, but those professors were willing to support black power at their own expense and integrity. I still don´t understand it.
#15, the NDJC is the official Jewish auxillary of the DNC and its leadership can be found on their website and they cite as their extended resources, 11 Jewish members of the Senate and twice that number in the House: http://www.njdc.org/site/page/board
Willing to bet that their honorary co-chair, Sen Cardin of Md will leap-frog Sen Menendez to replace Sen Kerry as Chair, Senate Foreign Affairs Committee, now that two major and well deserved hits have been put on Menendez...not paying the agreed upon rate for his call girls in some Latin American country and having an illegal alien child molester on his staff...
I would not label any as self-loathing #18 because they coralled over 70% Jewish support for Zero two elections in a row...
All Jews are by no means alike in their worldly philosophies. Here, for example, is the way one famous Jew thought about "the Jewish question:"
"In its perfected practice, Christian egoism of heavenly bliss is necessarily transformed into the corporal egoism of the Jew, heavenly need is turned into world need, subjectivism into self-interest. We explain the tenacity of the Jew not by his religion, but, on the contrary, by the human basis of his religion – practical need, egoism.
"Since in civil society the real nature of the Jew has been universally realized and secularized, civil society could not convince the Jew of the unreality of his religious nature, which is indeed only the ideal aspect of practical need. Consequently, not only in the Pentateuch and the Talmud, but in present-day society we find the nature of the modern Jew, and not as an abstract nature but as one that is in the highest degree empirical, not merely as a narrowness of the Jew, but as the Jewish narrowness of society.
"Once society has succeeded in abolishing the empirical essence of Judaism – huckstering and its preconditions – the Jew will have become impossible, because his consciousness no longer has an object, because the subjective basis of Judaism, practical need, has been humanized, and because the conflict between man’s individual-sensuous existence and his species-existence has been abolished.
"The social emancipation of the Jew is the emancipation of society from Judaism." --- Karl Marx, "On the Jewish Question." 1843.
What the Jewish Dems are going to have to see is Obama letting Israel twist in the wind and likely get invaded. Then there will be the outrage and teeth gnashing but nothing can be done by then. Clearly Jewish democrats do not really care about Israel based on roots, and most definitely are too dumb to realize its strategic importance in the region. If they did, they would oppose Hagel.
The former South African president died Thursday at age 95. Remember him through his uplifting and revolutionary words. 1. "A good head and a good heart are always a formidable combination." 2. "Never, never again shall it be that this beautiful land will again experience the oppression of one by another. " 3. "There is no passion to be found playing small - in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living." (Snip) 12. "It is what we make out of what we have, not what we are given, that separates one person
BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I´ve gotta tell, another little thing about Nelson Mandela. Do you realize in a couple of ways, maybe even more than a couple, Nelson Mandela has more in common or had more in common with Clarence Thomas than he does with Barack Obama? For example, Nelson Mandela (even prior to becoming president, but certainly after he became president of South Africa) insisted on compliance with his country´s constitution. He insisted on it. Obama looks at the US Constitution as an obstacle and makes end runs around it every day, practically. In that sense... These are the kind of
RUSH: Let me give you what is, I think, one of the most amazing things I ever heard Nelson Mandela say. We had fun with Mandela when he was in New York, when he came to New York and went to Yankees Stadium. But I´ll tell you, there are very few people that could have undergone what he went through and maintained any sense of dignity or optimism.(Snip) "Resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping it will kill your enemies." Is that not great? And it´s great because it´s exactly right. Resentment doesn´t do anybody any good.
The U.S. federal health insurance website HealthCare.gov, which has had technology problems since its October 1 launch, is now experiencing errors in transmitting applications about 10 percent of the time, a government spokeswoman said on Friday. The online insurance marketplace relays information about new customers in ´834´ transaction forms to the private insurance companies that provide the health plans. HealthCare.gov serves people in 36 states, while 14 states are running their own websites. "We believe nine of 10 transactions are being successfully transmitted," the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or CMS, spokeswoman Julie Bataille said at a news briefing.
Washington — Thad Cochran, a Mississippi Republican who was first elected to the Senate in 1978, set up a generational and ideological clash in the state’s Republican primary when he announced Friday that he would seek a seventh term in 2014. While Mr. Cochran, who turns 76 on Saturday, has the support of many leading Republicans in the state, he is already facing opposition from Chris McDaniel, 41, a state senator aligned with the Tea Party who announced his candidacy in October and has won the support of some conservative groups. Mr. Cochran, who has raised less than $1 million
Rep. James Sensenbrenner Jr., the original author of the Patriot Act, says Director of National Intelligence James Clapper should be prosecuted for lying to Congress. "Lying to Congress is a federal offense, and Clapper ought to be fired and prosecuted for it," the Wisconsin Republican said in an interview with The Hill. He said the Justice Department should prosecute Clapper for giving false testimony during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing in March. During that hearing, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) asked Clapper whether the National Security Agency (NSA) collects data on millions of Americans. Clapper insisted that the NSA does not
Washington - President Barack Obama on Thursday defended his nuclear diplomacy with Iran before an audience of Israeli diplomats and senior members of the US Jewish community and officials. At a White House Hanukkah reception, Obama said that it was important for the United States to test Iran´s intentions, and pledged to keep working for a comprehensive deal to deprive Tehran of a nuclear weapon. "For the first time in a decade we have halted progress of Iran´s nuclear program," Obama said. "Key parts of the program will be rolled back even though the toughest of our sanctions remain in
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
Former President Bill Clinton shared an anecdote regarding Nelson Mandela and the aftermath of his impeachment Friday on CNN. Clinton revealed shortly after the “impeachment business” finished on Capitol Hill, Rep. Henry Hyde (R., Ill.) who managed the impeachment trial requested a meeting at the White House. The former president granted the meeting out of lessons of humility and forgiveness he learned from Mandela, he said: BILL CLINTON: I remember one day, oh, about a month after the whole impeachment business was over, Henry Hyde, who had run the whole show, unbelievably enough, maybe a few months after, it was
On Tuesday, The Boston Globe reported that Onyango “Omar” Obama, uncle to President Obama, says that his famous nephew stayed with him while a student at Harvard Law School in the 80s, in contradiction to The White House’s contention that the two had never met. At Thursday’s White House daily briefing, Press Secretary Jay Carney confirmed that the President had, in fact, briefly stayed with “his father’s half-brother,” as Carney described Omar Obama, and that no one had actually asked the President about it when the White House initially commented. The 69 year-old Omar Obama has been facing deportation back
