Good or Bad for the Jews

"Disproportionate"

Keep hearing from the pro-Hamas crowd that Israel's response to the massacre of 7 October 2023 is "disproportionate." 

 Really? 

As even the pro-Hamas BBC now has acknowledged, the casualty numbers coming out of Gaza at least double the real numbers. In other words, they're false, and BBC has used them. This comes from relying, as does the UN and media outlets, upon the "Gaza Ministry of Health," i.e., a paper-thin cover for Hamas. We also read all sorts of numbers put out by the professional liars (Taqiyya masters) on X/Twitter: blatantly false, "supported" by poorly made Pallywood productions full of fake blood, "doctors" running in circles, wailing and gnashing on cue from cameramen, etc. All fake. 

It also seems, as I have noted before, that Israel's bombs kill only children, women, and world-famous journalists, professors, poets, and surgeons, and demolish world-beating schools, universities and hospitals. An amazing open-air prison, Gaza. So many Nobel prizes . . . 

Ok, forget about the fake Hamas casualty numbers. Let's focus, instead, on "proportionate." On another 7th, this one in December 1941, the Empire of Japan attacked the US naval base at Pearl Harbor, killing about 2100 Americans. Once we got our act together, we proceeded to kill some two million Japanese, perhaps more, in response. Proportionate? Who cares? We reduced Japan's cities to dust, cut off their food and oil supplies, and demolished their empire, navy, army, and air force. We dropped two atomic bombs on them when they still refused to surrender, and then occupied Japan for years after. Proportionate? I think so. 

Oh, and by the way, the British and we also reduced German cities to rubble, making them look even worse than today's Democrat-run Detroit and San Francisco--and I haven't mentioned what the Soviets did to Germany. MANY, MANY more Germans were killed by Allied bombing of Germany than Brits were by the Nazi bombing of the UK. Proportionate? Who cares? "Bomber" Harris, Hero of Humanity as far as I am concerned. We also occupied Germany and split it. Millions of Germans died in a war their leaders started. 

Oh, and another by the way, Germany never bombed the USA. Their leaders gratuitously declared war on the USA, and, well, as the saying goes, FAFO. Consequences, consequences, consequences. 

The only way to have at least a semblance of peace is for the IDF to destroy Hamas, totally and completely, and put the word out to Hizbullah and the rest of the Muslim Murder Machine, that they can see their future in what's happened to Hamas. Long live Israel. The West needs more "proportionate" responses.

Elections, Part 2

On March 30, I posted some thoughts on the forthcoming national elections in the USA. I made clear that under no circumstance would I, nor could I vote for Joe Biden who, among other things, is a habitual liar, fantasist, plagiarist, bully, borderline pedo (e.g., showers with his teen daughter), racist, big time crook receiving millions of dollars from foreign companies and governments, long-time lobbyist for the Delaware LLC and credit card businesses, thief of national security documents for some fifty years, participant--along with Obama, Clinton, the FBI and the CIA-- in an attempted coup against Trump, participant in the fraud that tilted the 2020 elections, verging on senility/dementia, and has haters of the USA and the West run "his" domestic and foreign policies. Catastrophe at home and abroad has resulted. My fiercest critic, my wife, read my post and said, "Well, you made a good case for not voting FOR Biden, how about why to vote for Trump?" She's got a point. I am voting for Trump, as I did twice before, for the simple reason that Trump understands America and its people in a way that no other president or candidate has in my lifetime.

He understands the corruption in the media, judicial system, and bureaucracy, and is suffering personal harm because of it. He understands that we cannot continue to hollow out our industrial base, and hope to remain a world power and a source of creativity and prosperity. We have to make things, such as cars, medicines, and the other billion widgets that come out of a genuinely industrial country, not just buy them from China and Vietnam. He understands that our once world-beating colleges and universities are now steaming heaps of woke ideological garbage, producing millions of self-entitled, credentialed morons, who want you to pay for their "education," and couldn't change a tire if their lives depended on it. He understands what insane environmental policies and the open border mean to our independence, safety, national culture and cohesiveness. I hear a lot of blather about how crude and divisive Trump is; that's nonsense. Obama, Clinton, and Biden not only attack Trump but attack his supporters: "Cling to guns and rifles," "Deplorables," "Cultists and insurrectionists," "White supremacists," etc. Trump doesn't do that.

He asks us all, regardless of race or religion, to make America great again, in other words to live up to our lofty aspirations. That's why I not only will vote against Biden but for Trump.

I give up on X/Twitter

I have been locked out of my X/Twitter account for nearly a month now with no explanation or response to my appeals forthcoming from the blue-haired gang that runs the pro-Hamas censorship operation over there. It seems that X/Twitter's brief burst of freedom when Musk took over has ended. New Twitter is now the same as old Twitter. 

I will be posting here from now on. I have something in the works about the insanity surrounding the forthcoming elections in the USA.

Back soon.

Elections 2024

Let me start with the obvious: I did not vote for, nor under any circumstance, would I ever vote for Joe Biden. 

Why? 

Well, Biden edges ever closer to the status of mental vegetable. Out of his depth, confused, physical and cognitive decay glaringly apparent, he cannot utter a complete sentence, and should not continue as President. All that aside, he has no core moral principles. A plagiarist, serial liar, fantasist, borderline pedophile, friend of racists, and a thief of US classified documents--which he hid for some fifty years, and tried to use for a ghost-written book--Biden has proven perhaps the most corrupt person ever to hold the title of President. Of limited intelligence, past years saw him regularly deemed the most stupid member of the Senate, and a renowned bully, he nominally heads a criminal family, which has enriched itself astronomically thanks to the sale of the only product of "Biden Industries," i.e., the Biden name, and, nowadays, almost exclusively for export. The Biden clan have expanded their long-established corruption well-beyond their original pandering to Delaware-based credit card companies and LLC businesses. They now sell "Biden" to the highest bidder, regardless of nationality. Iranians, Ukrainians, Russians, Romanians, Communist Chinese "businessmen," Gulf Arabs, and only God knows who else have poured money into the Biden family coffers--with "ten percent to the Big Guy." Garbled, weak, and self-destructive foreign policies have resulted, wasting the lives of our military and those of our allies. 

Along with his aforementioned lack of moral principles, he has no apparent core political values, and, to the extent that he's aware, allows leftist, race-obsessed mountebanks who seek the destruction of the United States to run domestic policies; we see this in "his" cabinet and judicial appointments, in the insane immigration and border policies "he" pursues, in the DNC rigging of elections--yes, they stole the 2020 election--the use of high-tech and legacy media firms to censor opposition voices; the employment of the legal and intelligence apparatuses to protect the Bidens and surveil and persecute political opponents; and the disconnect from the crime on our streets, and chaos on our borders which "his" administration has produced. "His" spending, energy, immigration, and environmental policies will destroy our economy, culture, and independence. In sum, Biden & Co. have shown themselves enemies of the United States. Period. 

Now, to Trump. The extreme Trump haters can give no solid reason for their hate of him except to repeat garbled accounts of already garbled and untruthful press reports about Trump. They scream, "Fascist! Racist! Putin puppet!" with no evidence that he is any of those. Lacking such evidence, they make it up, e.g., the Steele Dossier, anonymous quotes. We witness a genuine derangement unlike any ever seen before in American politics. I, frankly, fear for his physical safety. The opposition to Trump has become so unhinged, so frustrated with his ability to thwart legal and political moves against him--e.g., fake Russian collusion stories, having him banned from the ballot, ludicrous criminal and civil charges--that I see his life in danger. I hope I am wrong. 

I did not start as a Trump supporter. I admit that I liked Jeb Bush, with whom I had spent some time in Indonesia. He struck me as smart, honest, funny, and a genuinely decent sort. I sighed in frustration when I saw Trump descend the "golden staircase" at Trump Tower to announce his bid for the presidency. I gave him a near zero chance of winning, thinking this a publicity stunt. Despite my father's prediction in the early 2000's that Tump would become President, I saw Trump as a distraction that would split the GOP.  My three sons, however, began to turn me around on Trump. They went to his rallies and came back very impressed; I began to listen to him, instead of about him, and, thought, "Wow! This guy thinks like I do! Hmmmm? Could I have been wrong?" My whole family voted for Trump; an island of red in the deep blue California ocean.

He won the presidency in 2016, despite all the media prognostications that he would not: Bloomberg, for example, gave him zero percent chance of winning; the NYT, more generous, gave him ten percent. The Clinton campaign proved a classic example of arrogance, hubris, and complacency; it laughed off warnings from leftists such as Michael Moore who saw the stirring unrest among blue collar workers set to defy their pro-Clinton union leadership. His win was greeted by leftist violence on the streets, a violence which continued throughout this term in office. The physical violence was followed by an attempted coup via fake stories of Russian collusion, idiotic impeachment trials, and in the end, censorship, and blatant vote rigging in the 2020 elections, all aided by, honestly, some terrible personnel choices made by Washington newcomer Trump. The swamp proved deeper, more dangerous and perfidious than even he had thought. He got conned by many of his supposed allies, e.g., Paul Ryan who delayed and delayed on Obamacare "repeal and replace," and sought to prevent the border wall.

He, above all, got caught in a no-win situation with the advent of the Covid "epidemic." The demand from nearly all quarters, now conveniently forgotten by many of those same quarters, came to shut down Trump's booming economy and superlative military, immigration, and foreign policies! The networks began running death clocks reporting, on the basis of deeply flawed information, an ever-escalating toll of Americans "killed" by Covid. The fraudulent dancing TikTok nurses got hailed as selfless heroes, working with "defective hazmat gear," yet plowing ahead to "save" America. Going to church, Trump rallies, and voting in person became unpatriotic acts posing an intolerable risk to the public welfare. Taking part in BLM/Antifa riots got a pass. We saw the result of the chaos, hysteria and vote cheating in the 2020 elections. Biden allegedly got 81 million votes, more even than the Saintly Obama; Trump "lost" and our current disaster commenced. 

I think Trump has learned his lesson. I have trust that Trump's appointments will be a significant cut above many of those in his first term. I also hope and trust that he will seek revenge on those who sought to destroy him and prevent America from making a come-back. 

Trump was a great president, despite his newbie mistakes, and will be even greater the second time around.
