Watcher’s Council Nominations – Faith Edition

Video:  Israeli Soldiers Dancing Before Entry of Gaza

IDF soldiers sing before entering Gaza; “The whole world is a narrow bridge and you must not be afraid. Serve G-d with joy and come before Him with song. We have no one to rely upon except our Father in heaven.”

Welcome to the Watcher’s Council, a blogging group consisting of some of the most incisive blogs in the ‘sphere, and the longest running group of its kind in existence. Every week, the members nominate two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council.Then we vote on the best two posts, with the results appearing on Friday morning.

Council News:

Ah, the big news today is that it’s party time..

Our own Courtney, GrEaT sAtAn”S gIrLfRiEnD adds another year to the ledger. The actual date was Monday, but we’ll celebrate it today…especially since she managed to get through her birthday weekend in one piece and without any serious encounters with the authorities.

First, some flowers, just because..

Now this is a decadent rum cake..the alcohol’s cooked off, but that wonderful flavor of Mount Gay Bajan rum remains. And I wasn’t sure whether I wanted to mar that wonderful chocolate top with candle holes, but I’ll let the birthday girl decide that one..and how many candles.

And some chilled Veuve Cliquot on the side to wash it down..

Another year Courts, and you still crack me up with the joyful mayhem you perform on the defenseless English language in your articles and of course in our asides! Even better is the real substance in what you write that’s behind it.It’s a great pleasure to have you in the group, and especially to have you as my friend..many, many more and keep treading the Narrow Way.

The Council In Action!!

My latest over at The Times Of Israel is up.When it comes to Hamas and Gaza, ‘demilitarization’ is the new buzzword, and it gets mentioned frequently as a solution. In What ‘Demilitarization’ Really Means’ I revisit what happened the last time this carrot was held out to push a ceasefire with the full force of the ‘international community’ behind it.

This week, The MidKnight Review, Blazing Cat Fur and Gates Of Vienna earned honorable mention status with some great articles.

You can, too! Want to see your work appear on the Watcher’s Council homepage in our weekly contest listing? Didn’t get nominated by a Council member? No worries.

To bring something to my attention, simply head over to Joshuapundit and post the title and a link to the piece you want considered along with an e-mail address ( which won’t be published) in the comments section no later than Monday 6PM PST in order to be considered for our honorable mention category. Then return the favor  by creating a post on your site linking to the Watcher’s Council contest for the week when it comes out Wednesday morning

Simple, no?

It’s a great way of exposing your best work to Watcher’s Council readers and Council members. while grabbing the increased traffic and notoriety. And how good is that, eh?

So, let’s see what we have for you this week….

Forum: What Should Israel Do About Gaza?


Every week on Monday morning , the Council and our invited guests weigh in at The Council Forum, short takes on a major issue of the day, the culture, or daily living. This week’s question: What Should Israel Do About Gaza?


The Independent Sentinel: Israel should finish the job now while Hamas has few supporters in the Arab world. They need to obliterate the tunnels and the missiles. Then they should go back home but monitor any shipments going into Gaza.

It’s a blessing that Morsi is gone.

Simply Jews: What happens the day after Hamas is destroyed?

Unfortunately, we may not see that day anytime soon. Our government is not up to sacrifice lives of hundreds of soldiers required to smoke out the terrorists from under the center of the Gaza City, which will be the price once the fighting in the confines of the city really starts.

Or should Hamas be destroyed or just disarmed, if that’s possible?

In the ideal world Hamas should be destroyed, in a less ideal – disarmed. In our world, neither will happen, due to (see above). It will be helpful as well to read this;

I am sorry to say that it is all true.

What should Israel’s strategy towards Hamas/Fatah be?

Trying to bolster the latter in every situation that will harm the former. For example, if freeing prisoners: leave the Hamas ones in prison. Any relief of restrictions goes to the latter – leaving the former in the mud. But all of this – publicly, with lots of coverage. Encourage good behavior so that all can see it.

What strategy should America support?

The one agreed in the privacy between the two sides and not the one blurted via “accidentally” operating mikes to the media, totally not agreed by the other side. As it more and more frequently happens lately.

What is most likely to occur there?

Nothing essentially new. Same old. Another year or two of relative calm, followed by a new round of strife.

Sorry for being so pessimistic.

JoshuaPundit: There are two things you hear said a lot about this situation, usually by genuinely stupid politicians or equally stupid think tank inhabitants. The first is the trophe that ‘there is no military solution.’  The second is to say there is a major  difference between Hamas and Fatah.

Actually, a military solution would be the only one that would work. And the dime’s worth of difference between  Hamas and Fatah,the difference between ‘acceptable’ terrorists and ‘unacceptable’ terrorists has faded to nothingness because of the unity agreement between the two and their coordinated strategy in the Third Intifada.

It should be apparent by now that anything Israel does to defend itself is now going to be subject to  criticism by the usual suspects, which now unfortunately includes the Obama regime. That should be apparent to anyone following the news of President Obama’s trying to rescue Hamas by demanding Israel abide by an unconditional ceasefire…while he and Qatar and the EU fund them.

Israel is in the same position with Obama as they were with France’s DeGaulle on the eve of the Six Day War.Since anything they do short of committing suicide is going to get the same reaction, they have little to lose.

There is a solution to Gaza. It involves Israel  (1) destroying Hamas utterly by whatever means necessary (2) Annexing Gaza (3) removing most of the Arab population either to Area A, the reichlet of Fatah and Mahmoud Abbas or to UNRWA refugee camps outside Israeli territory and (4) Gradually repopulating Gaza with Jews and watching it become Singapore or Hong Kong instead of an Islamo-fascist swamp.

Every poll indicates that Israel’s population overwhelmingly supports defeating Hamas once and for all.There really is no choice.

At the same time, the behavior of Abbas and Fatah have shown that  a similar solution has to be coordinated with them. Israel needs to delineate its borders unilateral and enforce them. Annex Area C and the Jordan Valley where the populations are overwhelmingly Jewish as well as whatever strategic areas of Areas A and B Israel determines it wishes to control. Cede the rest of Area A to Abbas as his little reichlet, and move all Jews outside the new borders  to Israeli territory and all Arab non-Israeli citizens to ‘Palestine’. Endgame, and as the divorce becomes final,  a  warning:  let Abbas and Fatah know that any aggressive action, including lawfare will involve severe consequences. And follow through on it.

Peace comes from victory. And after all of the ‘sacrifices for peace’ written in Jewish blood forced on Israel since the Oslo debacle, I think the Israeli people would support this over these constant wars of attrition that grow more costly each time. Enough of the balagan gadol.

The Razor: Unfortunately Israelis don’t have the stomach for permanently fixing the problem in Gaza and the West Bank: Ethnically cleansing the Palestinians from both areas and forcing them into refugee camps in Jordan or Egypt or wherever else the locals will put up with them. It’s not that Israel couldn’t survive the heat from the outside world; I believe the average Israeli doesn’t have the conscience to do it. Contrary to what the Europeans and many on the Left here in the US believe, the Jews are a moral people. It would be difficult for them to accept the morality of a campaign of trucking the Palestinians out of their homes in Gaza and the West Bank to the border crossings in Egypt and Jordan. But morality and political stability are two mutually exclusive domains.

Barring such a moral turn, the only viable solution I’ve seen is the “Shock the Casbah” strategy described here: In a nutshell, it means negotiating a final settlement with the PA, but it’s a longshot as Garfinkle notes, “because it requires a boldness of vision and leadership in Israel, among the Palestinians, and in the United States, Egypt, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia that is simply not available.” I believe Netanyahu is bold, but he has no counterpart on the PA side, and definitely lacks a bold leader here in the United States. So I doubt that will happen.

At this point I don’t see an end to the violence in Gaza, just a lot more muddling through. If Hamas can be destroyed the Israelis should do it. It’s on the ropes with an unfriendly Egypt behind it and it’s Iranian patron too busy in Syria and Iraq to give them much notice. Of course there can always be worse in Gaza. Look at Isis in Northern Iraq…

Ask Marion: There really is no Palestinian State.  They have continually failed to lay the groundwork for a viable homeland and the continual jockeying over the two state solution exists to placate International opinion.

Caroline Glick is the Author of The Israeli Solution: A One-State Plan for Peace in the Middle East

It would be nice to say, just disarm Hamas and everything will be fine, but in reality the only way to peace is for Israel to destroy them.  Even after years of war in the Middle East, Americans are generally clueless about what is going on there, where the borders are or even where most of the countries in the Middle East are and they certainly have no clue as to the minutia.

Operation Protective Edge continues to move toward its goals while the Hamas system of complex and advanced military infrastructure tunnels is being realized beneath them. Israel can and I believe has the ability to reach their immediate goal of destroying this tunnel system that has been constructed, subduing rocket fire and leave Gaza…  establishing a couple of years of calm and normalcy. But if Hamas is not destroyed, this is a temporary solution… until the next round. As Netanyahu has pointed out, Hamas breaks all cease fires and agreements.

 Video: Netanyahu: Hamas Has Broken All Cease Fires We Have Agreed To

But why wait for a next time? Israel should eliminate the Hamas threat completely right now during Operation Protective Edge, including reoccupying Gaza and destroying every rocket, gun, bullet, armament, as well as their factories. Israel has already mobilized into Gaza and Hamas has been weakened by these first few weeks of fighting. Plus, maybe the most important difference is the Sinai factor which has not presented itself before and could disappear again in the future. There has been a military rapprochement with the Egyptians since al-Sisi overthrew the Muslim Brotherhood. Currently, Egypt is completely in Israel’s corner. Having their backs up against the wall Hamas leaders and fighters will not be able to escape into the Sinai, the only place they could go in the past in a final Israeli assault scenario. The Egyptians will cut them down if they try to enter their territory. They will be forced to shoot it out with the IDF.  So now is the time! Israel certainly is not going to get any help from the U.S. while Obama is our president and who knows what the future will bring?!?


Funny how that border word seems to vary from situation to situation in President Obama’s mind… and actions!!

Well, there you have it.

Make sure to tune in every Monday for the Watcher’s Forum. And remember, every Wednesday, the Council has its weekly contest with the members nominating two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council.

Obama Calls For Collectivized New World Order

That’s right… the words New World Order have again passed his lips… as they did with Bush 41 and as Henry Kissinger predicted in 2008.  Fundamental transformation here we come if we don’t wake-up and get involved immediately.  Governor Sarah Palin posted on her facebook earlier: One in three Americans is talking about Obama’s impeachment.  So what are we waiting for?

“People are anxious…. the old order isn’t holding”

Obama Calls For Collectivized New World Order

by Paul Joseph Watson – InfoWars – July 25, 2014:

Worldwide socialism? Can you imagine how horrible this would be?

Check it out:

During a fundraiser in Seattle this week, President Barack Obama called for a “new order” based around a collectivized system in order to quell people’s concerns about geopolitical strife and the economy.

“People are anxious. Now, some of that has to do with some big challenges overseas,” said Obama, adding, “But whether people see what’s happening in Ukraine, and Russia’s aggression towards its neighbors in the manner in which it’s financing and arming separatists; to what’s happened in Syria … to the failure in Iraq for Sunni and Shia and Kurd to compromise … to what’s happening in Israel and Gaza….”

“Part of people’s concern is just the sense that around the world the old order isn’t holding and we’re not quite yet to where we need to be in terms of a new order that’s based on a different set of principles, that’s based on a sense of common humanity, that’s based on economies that work for all people. … But here in the United States, what people are also concerned about is the fact that although the economy has done well in the aggregate, for the average person it feels as if incomes, wages just haven’t gone up; that people, no matter how hard they work, they feel stuck.”

In a geopolitical context, Obama’s call for a “new order” really doesn’t sound any different from the old unipolar world order that the United States has represented since the end of the Cold War, which is now being challenged by the rise of the BRICS countries.

Developments over the course of the past year have made it clear that the United States no longer considers Russia to be part of this “new order” as a result of its resistance to NATO encirclement.

In terms of the economy, Obama’s insistence on “economies that work for all people” based on “common humanity” is in direct contradiction to his actual policies, which have almost exclusively served to help Wall Street fat cats while the average American sees their household income decline year after year when adjusted for inflation.

This is by no means the first time that Obama has called for a new world order.

During a 2010 West Point speech, the President encouraged the development of a new “international order” to help secure America’s interests.

Obama also urged Europeans and Americans to embrace the idea of “global citizenship” during a 2012 Berlin speech.

Vice-President Joe Biden has also repeatedly called for a “new world order.”

Framework for world government: from the moment State Department planners in the Roosevelt administration began crafting plans for the United Nations, their goal was always the same: world government.


By: Dennis Behreandt  –  New American  –  Jul 11, 2005  –  h/t to The Right Planet

The United Nations has been portrayed as the world’s most important humanitarian organization. The propaganda supporting this view has been continuous for so long that few doubt the depiction. When disasters such as the devastating Asian tsunami occur, the UN and its pundits are quick to position the world body in the limelight with pronouncements depicting the organization as the leading supplier and coordinator of relief and aid.

Such a picture of the UN as merely a helpful relief and humanitarian agency is dangerously deceptive and inaccurate. It is true that the world body does participate in relief efforts when disasters occur, but this is only the public face of the organization. A clear-eyed survey of the makeup of the UN, though, finds that the world body is much more than a relief organization. It has, for instance, a clearly delineated executive branch in the office of the secretary-general. It has a similarly delineated legislative branch in the General Assembly and Security Council. And it has subsidiaries and affiliates, like the World Court, the nascent International Criminal Court, and certain tribunals, that function as a judiciary branch.

Those familiar with the composition of governing bodies will recognize in this structure the basic framework of government. And this is precisely what the United Nations is and always has been. In fact, from the very moment of its birth during and immediately following the great upheaval of World War II, the true purp6se of the United Nations has been obscured. Born in secrecy while the world convulsed in the violence of war, the founders of the world body, primarily found in the subversive and internationalist ranks of the Council on Foreign Relations, labored to lay the groundwork for world government. The United Nations was designed from the beginning to be the instrument through which they would achieve this dangerous goal.

Keep reading …

Moving us to a New World Order… World Government, was always the Progressive Plan; what Obama meant by the fundamental transformation of America. And the only reason that we aren’t already there is because of patriotic Americans who woke-up and stood-up… the Tea Party, which is why they have been demonized by the ruling elite, and a small group of courageous politicians and alternative media folk including Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz, Glenn Beck, Michele Bachmann, Allen West, Laura Ingraham, Mike Lee, Rand Paul, Alex Jones, Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Dr. Ben Carson, Ron Paul, Sean Hannity, Mark Steyn, Trevor Loudon, Daniel Hannan, Dinesh D’Souza and the like who have all also been demonized by those in power who want to control “you and me”,  the little people.  Those who are ignored or belittled by the mainstream media are exactly who you should be listening to and following, not shunning.

Its a Wrap

Our weekly wrap… Sunday to Sunday… Please share! Ask Marion

It is Time to Choose… Which America You Want Your Grandkids to Live In!!

America has been on the edge for a long time and she is now teetering as far forward over the edge as a country possibly can before it falls over the cliff and is no longer recognizable.  We either wake-up immediately and get-involved or there will be no America, at least not as you knew her, not for your children and grandchildren… nor anything to take care of you from the benefits you already paid for!

And those that are changing America are protected by a large network including the mainstream media, but there are some good alternatives…  Fox News, Conservative Talk Radio, Glenn Beck’s TheBlaze Network, BadBlue News and as of yesterday Sarah Palin has announced her own new digital TV ChannelSarahPalinChannel.com Get-Involved, educate yourself, pray and spread the truth before it is too late!!

Palace Guard

And check back later this week for our article on Calling All Grandparents.  It is time to get informed and involved now… or be destroyed!!

Lack of education and understanding about the true plan the ruling elite have for our country, the world, and who is part of that plan is a big part of why we have lost our country to the Progressive Movement.  We never took the time to understand them, the enemies within and their goals…  You must understand your enemy before you can defeat them!!  The Cloward-Piven Strategy, being used at the southern border right now and Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals are two of the key elements in the Progressive tool chest…

Be sure to check out Orchestrated Invasion – The Eradication Of America’s Borders by our pal Terresa Monroe Hamilton at the NoisyRoom as well as Sarah Palin – Western Conservative Summit – Denver, CO (FULL SPEECH) by Isabel Matos at A Time for Choosing.  And go see Dinesh D’Souza’s movie, America, based on his book America: Imagine a World without Her.

Health Related Book Suggestions:  Love Sex Again by Dr. Lauren Streicher. Special Heart: A Journey of Faith, Hope, Courage and Love by Bret Baier is a must read!! And: Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth about Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar–Your Brain’s Silent Killers by Dr. David Perlmutter and Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find Your Path Back to Health By William Davis

Love Sex Again  is an all-encompassing guide to women’s sexual health from Dr. Lauren Streicher, a cutting-edge Gynecologist, and a regular on The Dr. Oz Show.

Ladies, what if one of America’s leading sexual specialists and Gynecologist told you that she knew your body better than you did? What if she told you that she could fix the problems that are making your sex life less than perfect? More than 100 million women in America have problems in the bedroom, but don’t have the courage to ask their doctors for help. These problems don’t come from relationship issues, or the stresses of work and family. These are real, physical issues that are getting in the way of a vibrant, joyful sex life. Instead of getting the help they need, so many women make a silent deal with themselves: without fanfare, without discussion, they quietly give up on pleasure, or drastically compromise their expectations where sex is concerned. Sometimes women make this deal with themselves early on in their 20s or 30s; for other women, it doesn’t hit until their 40s, 50s or later. Most women lack the vocabulary to talk about these issues with their doctors, not to mention the pharmaceutical aids that are readily available to men. But no longer.

Dr. Streicher will show women how to regain their libido, determine what their issues are, and learn to fix whatever is broken “down there.” This much anticipated book will set women on a path to discovering (or rediscovering) deeply pleasurable, satisfying sex. She offers practical advice for real women of all ages—from childbearing to post-menopausal, and explains what a woman needs to know about her body, where she is in her life, and her relationships, and how it connects to a satisfying sex life.

The rate of occurrences of Alzheimer’s-Dementia (AD), ADD, ADHD, Autism (ASD), and debilitating Aging symptoms are through the roof. Everyone I know either suffers from one of these conditions (themselves); has a child, grandchild, parent, or grandparent who is afflicted; or they know someone, if not several some-ones, within their close circle that suffers from one or more of these diseases and conditions.

We are drowning in epidemics and dying of inflammation.

We Haven’t So This is What is Happening:  Cloward-Piven at Our Border…

A Country With Not Border Is Not a Country


Book(s) of the Week:   Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine By Daniel Halper

Clinton Inc

Weekly Standard editor Daniel Halper (video) provides a meticulously researched account of the brilliant calculations, secret deals, and occasionally treacherous maneuverings that led to the Clintons’ return to political prominence.

In the twelve years since the Clintons left the White House, they have gone from being theoretically (or at least in Hillary’s description) penniless to multi-millionaires, and are arguably the most popular politicians in America — both respected and feared by Republicans and Democrats alike. But behind that rise is a never-before-told story of strategic cleverness, reckless gambles, and an unquenchable thirst for political power.

Investigative reporter Daniel Halper uses a wealth of research, exclusive documents, and detailed interviews with close friends, allies, and enemies of the Clintons to reveal the strategy they used and the deals they made to turn their political fortunes around. Clinton Inc. (Where the Ugly Just Does Not Stop) exposes the relationship between President Obama, the Bush family, and the Clintons — and what it means for the future; how Bill and Hillary are laying the groundwork for the upcoming presidential campaign; how Vice President Biden and other Democrats are trying to maneuver around her; Chelsea’ s political future; the Clintons’ skillful media management; the Clintons’ marriage and why it has survived; and an inside look at the Clinton’s financial backers and hidden corporate enterprises.

Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine is the key to understanding America’s most powerful political couple whose theory is that if they air their dirty laundry now, people will look at it as old news, forgive them (her) and will embrace another Hillary Presidential run, no matter how much dirt in her and Bill’s past(s), including Benghazi for which many feel Hillary should probably be in jail, but definitely out of politics.  So as quickly as Hilleryville implodes, Team Hillary is busy rebuilding even if Hillary doesn’t deserve our admiration or another shot at the Presidency.

Then take a little time and do your homework on the Clintons.  There is plenty of info out there, and a lot of ugly, if you take the time to find it.  “If Hillary Clinton is elected in 2016, the baton will have passed from one Alinskyite to another. In this case, Alinsky’s influence will have taken on a massive, almost unimaginable, importance. Obama will have had eight years to remake America, and Hillary will have another four or perhaps eight to complete the job,” he wrote. –> Dinesh D’Souza’s ‘America’ warns Hillary Clinton will ‘finish off’ the country <– (And Elizabeth Warren is equally as deluded and an Alinsky disciple!)

None of this is new and negative information on the Clintons has been out there since Bill Clinton was the Governor of Arkansas, just like it was out there on the Obamas before the 2008 Election, but not enough people did their homework on either or they bought into the media spin.  Some earlier works worth checking out are the books: The Shadow Party: How George Soros, Hillary Clinton, and Sixties Radicals Seized Control of the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton Nude: Naked Ambition, Hillary Clinton And America’s Demise plus the old movie Primary Colors that I have been seeing more and more lately on late night TV.

Also checkout Faithless Execution: Building the Political Case for Obama’s Impeachment By Andrew C McCarthy and  Blood Feud: The Clintons vs. the Obamas  By Edward Klein  if you haven’t already read them. And go see Dinesh D’Souza’s movie, America, based on his book America: Imagine a World without Her.

And for anyone who hasn’t read Rules for Radicals, it is a must read.  You cannot defeat what you do not understand!!

Rules for Radicals, first published in 1971, is Saul Alinsky’s counsel to young radicals on how to effect social change and know “the difference between being a realistic radical and being a rhetorical one.” You cannot effectively fight your enemy if you do not understand him. In order to understand Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and the rest of Progressive you need to understand Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals as well as the Cloward and Piven Strategy, which is what they are using to capsize the republic and at the border right now.

Alinsky’s 12 Rules for Radicals:

Know them and know what Democrats are doing! You can’t beat an enemy you don’t understand… it is why we lost in Vietnam and the wars in the Middle East.

* RULE 1: “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.” Power is derived from 2 main sources – money and people. “Have-Nots” must build power from flesh and blood. (These are two things of which there is a plentiful supply. Government and corporations always have a difficult time appealing to people, and usually do so almost exclusively with economic arguments.)

* RULE 2: “Never go outside the expertise of your people.” It results in confusion, fear and retreat. Feeling secure adds to the backbone of anyone. (Organizations under attack wonder why radicals don’t address the “real” issues. This is why. They avoid things with which they have no knowledge.)

* RULE 3: “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.” Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty. (This happens all the time. Watch how many organizations under attack are blind-sided by seemingly irrelevant arguments that they are then forced to address.)

* RULE 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules. (This is a serious rule. The besieged entity’s very credibility and reputation is at stake, because if activists catch it lying or not living up to its commitments, they can continue to chip away at the damage.)

* RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions. (Pretty crude, rude and mean, huh? They want to create anger and fear.)

* RULE 6: “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.” They’ll keep doing it without urging and come back to do more. They’re doing their thing, and will even suggest better ones. (Radical activists, in this sense, are no different that any other human being. We all avoid “un-fun” activities, and but we revel at and enjoy the ones that work and bring results.)

* RULE 7: “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.” Don’t become old news. (Even radical activists get bored. So to keep them excited and involved, organizers are constantly coming up with new tactics.)

* RULE 8: “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new. (Attack, attack, attack from all sides, never giving the reeling organization a chance to rest, regroup, recover and re-strategize.)

* RULE 9: “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.” Imagination and ego can dream up many more consequences than any activist. (Perception is reality. Large organizations always prepare a worst-case scenario, something that may be furthest from the activists’ minds. The upshot is that the organization will expend enormous time and energy, creating in its own collective mind the direst of conclusions. The possibilities can easily poison the mind and result in demoralization.)

* RULE 10: “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.” Violence from the other side can win the public to your side because the public sympathizes with the underdog. (Unions used this tactic. Peaceful [albeit loud] demonstrations during the heyday of unions in the early to mid-20th Century incurred management’s wrath, often in the form of violence that eventually brought public sympathy to their side.)

* RULE 11: “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.” Never let the enemy score points because you’re caught without a solution to the problem. (Old saw: If you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem. Activist organizations have an agenda, and their strategy is to hold a place at the table, to be given a forum to wield their power. So, they have to have a compromise solution.)

* RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)

Stand Together When the Time comes

The wolves are at the door!!

The GOP can beat Hillary with the right candidate.  The left is going to use the same ploy with Hillary as they did with Obama… They will make themselves look like the Heroes because they are putting up the first women, as they did, the first black American, for President. It was what the campaign of lies against the GOP has been leading up to… the made up Republican War Against Women has been part of the plan to run Hillary with that carrot, all along.  The Election of 2016 will be the battle for America’s soul and future and the key to the Republicans… Conservatives, the American Middle Class winning that battle is fighting fire with fire… pitting our strongest women against Hillary. The key to stopping Hillary Clinton is Sarah Palin! The Economist/YouGov survey asked respondents in a series of polls which female candidate not named Hillary Clinton they would want to run for president.

Palin is first in the national survey with 9%, followed by Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and former Secretary of State and National Security Adviser Condoleeza Rice with 8%. Michelle Obama is fourth with 2% of the vote.

In other national polls, Palin has the highest favorability rating among Republican presidential primary voters. If Sarah does not run in 2016, her influence and potential endorsement could tip the GOP presidential contest as the GOP may be the most split from within in the past 40 years.

The Case for a Palin Candidacy for President in 2016

Then take a little time and do your homework on the Clintons.  There is plenty of info out there, and a lot of ugly, if you take the time to find it.  “If Hillary Clinton is elected in 2016, the baton will have passed from one Alinskyite to another. In this case, Alinsky’s influence will have taken on a massive, almost unimaginable, importance. Obama will have had eight years to remake America, and Hillary will have another four or perhaps eight to complete the job,” he wrote. –> Dinesh D’Souza’s ‘America’ warns Hillary Clinton will ‘finish off’ the country <– (And Elizabeth Warren is equally as deluded and a disciple!)

The Border? The Mideast? Scandals? For The Obamas It’s Luxury Vacay Time Again!!

A view of President Obama's vacation getaway at 72 Gosnold's Way in Chilmark.

My My… Another Let Them Eat Cake Moment

By Rob Miller – Joshua Pundit – Orginally Posted on Wednesday, July 16, 2014

Now isn’t this precious! The Obamas and a crew of their very special invited guests are planning a 16 day luxury vacation at Martha’s Vineyard on a $12 million, 10-acre forested estate with expansive water views of Vineyard Sound on the southwestern corner of the island. The house will have to be altered for security and communications facilities, and then returned to its former condition. That could cost $150,000 and up alone, based on similar jobs like this done for other trips.

From August 9 to August 24 they’ll be camped out at the 8,100-square foot beachfront home of a heavy Democrat donor that includes an infinity pool and hot tub, plus a basketball and tennis court. Valerie Jarret, of course will be among the ones in attendance.

A total of 12 smaller houses have been rented for the not quite so favored and the help on the tony island resort during high season..not cheap, although the White House isn’t revealing the cost. The average on the island in August is a mere $400-$500 per day. For a dozen houses,lets split the difference and say $8,000 per day, or a total of around $150,000 since the staffers normally get there a few days before the president.

And then, there’s security. We can’t have gawkers or the non-connected interfering with the Obamas’ fun, now can we?

Figure at least 50 Secret Service agents, plus a number of Navy and Coast Guard ships that will be on hand as well.The Secret Service all have vehicles (normally at least 20 based on the usual size of the presidential entourage, so that means Air Force One plus military transport aircraft which usually includes two VC-25As and a C-130. There is usually also a chartered press plane to bring along additional journalists. Air Force One alone costs $68,000 an hour to run, so figure over $400,000 round trip just for Air Force One, plus the same for the identical backup Air Force One 747 (that’s right, there are TWO of them). Figure at least another $75,000 per plane for maintenance, so close to just over a million for the two Air Force Ones alone. The other planes add up to at least slightly more than that…let’s call it two million five in all. That doesn’t include food and beverages, something the Obamas and their guests are normally pretty free with according to documents obtained on other trips by Judicial Watch’s FOIA suits.

Obviously the number and type of ships guarding the president is highly classified. I think assuming something like 15-20 ships including submarine and Coast Guard launches is probably pretty close to correct.Operation costs for military vessels vary according to size and type. A modern sub, for instance, costs about $55,000 per day to operate. If there are two of them, one for each side of the island, we’re talking almost $2 million for eighteen days, just for the subs.Smaller destroyers cost about $150,000 per day, so a pair of those might run between $2 to $2.5 million. For the entire vacay, I would not be surprised if the naval ships cost between $5 million and $10 million for the 18 days they’ll be on duty.Let’s say $6 million, which is probably on the low side.
We’re up to $8.8 million. And we haven’t figured in food, gas, entertainment, greens fees, communications charges or a myriad of other miscellaneous expenses. I figure the entire romp will cost the taxpayers at least $10 million, probably more.

Just for comparison purposes, Mrs. Obama’s previous luxury romp in Spain cost close to half a million of your tax dollars, and according to the UK Daily Mail, Judicial Watch reports that it cost more than $11 million for President and Mrs. Obama to travel to South Africa for Nelson Mandela’s memorial service in December, where the president and his wife and their entourage were in Africa for less than 13 hours.

No one has even begun to calculate the cost of the luxurious China  vacation Michelle Obama took with her mother and assorted hangers on that was actually billed as an official trip  believe it or not, even though no official business was conducted.

And the most fun part of all? Guess who’s paying for it? We are! Now there’s something to think about as you’re trying to figure out whether you can swing the price of gas, meals at McDonalds or Carrows and a couple of nights in a Motel Six to take your own family out for a long weekend this summer or whether its going to be another staycation at home.

But for the Obamas, its Bluto Blutarsky’s motto all the way: “Take it. Don’t cost nuthin’. “

Michelle Antoinette

At least, it don’t cost nuthin’ for the Obamas!

But let’s not be too critical. The president needs to rest up from his fundraising and campaigning for his fellow Democrats. That speech he always gives, the class warfare one at each stop ranting about the awful “1 percent,” the greedy “rich” (you know, anyone making $200,000 who’s not working in government) and those do-nothing Republicans in congress must take a lot out of him.

(***BIG FAT NOTE*** Yours truly edited the above part of this piece after being notified by some of the usual trolls in the comments section that I had been punked by a SATIRE SITE. Yes, even the trolls serve a purpose sometimes. The part about the vacay is true, but the former numbers were so ludicrously off I should have known. Doesn’t happen often, but I had a pretty big laugh at myself at how I fell into this one! Mea culpa.

So I researched what the likely costs would be for a presidential vacay in  a place like Martha’s Vineyard, the  actual cost of operating the aircraft, renting auxiliary properties and the cost of operating the naval vessels.Of course, the trolls missed the forest for the trees, like always  –  that at a time when our economy is actually shrinking, so many are in want  and there are so many major problems to deal with, it’s a selfish, indecent  and  classless move to go on a luxury vacay of this sort. That part was right on the money, and they of course ignored it. We now return to our regularly scheduled program)

Ah, but what about BUSH! Didn’t HE go to that satanic ranch of his in Crawford all the time. HUH!?!
I hate it when the insane Left makes me defend a mediocre president like George W. Bush. Although of course he looks good, you know, in retrospect to some people.

The Bushes spent a mere fraction of what the Obamas have spent on vacation, and there’s a simple reason why. Rather than renting a different house each time in a high cost resort, almost of of their vacations were spent in one of three places – at the family home in Crawford, at Camp David or at a family compound in Maine.

When a president goes on vacation, the biggest costs involve Air Force One, the subsidiary aircraft for staff and the Secret Service and accommodations for them.And the extensive changes to any property so the computer and communications networks are encrypted and secure and can be used successfully by the president in case something comes up, or simply if a decision needs to be made while he’s on vacation.

In the case of the Bushes, two out of three of these location already had the communications networks and accommodations for the Secret Service and staff already in place on the premises, Camp David ( which doesn’t even need to be flown to, so no Air Force one expenditures) and the Bush Compound in Maine, because of George HW Bush’s presidency. The Bush family home in Crawford had to have these facilities prepared precisely ONCE, after George W. Bush became president. The only further expenditure for Crawford in 8 years was the flight time and the phone bill.

Now, in the case of the Obamas, they stay in different high priced digs each time where similarly high priced accommodations have to be found for the Secret Service, staff and help each and every time. And each and every time whatever mansion they’re staying in has to be refurbished for security access and to accommodate the computer systems, surveillance cameras and communications networks needed…and then repaired and returned to their original condition when the Obamas leave…at literally millions in government expense, of course.

The Bushes weren’t exactly high livers compared to the Obamas either. There was nothing like some of the gaudy spectacles we’ve seen since the Obamas came to town. And no one ever saw Mrs. Laura Bush sporting high fashion designer gowns at gala White House events.

There’s no way of working it out besides hearsay from people who have served both presidents, but the overall impression we get is that President Bush spent a great deal more work time on his vacations than Barack Obama ever has. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if that was true.

Oh, and one more thing. President Bush was an enthusiastic golfer, just like our current president. But he gave it up entirely once we went to war after the invasion of Afghanistan. To paraphrase the president’s own words, he didn’t want some mother or wife of an American soldier in harm’s way to see her president playing golf when their loved ones were in danger.

That showed a certain amount of empathy and class. We have a very different kind of man in the White House now.

And speaking of empathy and class, I also seem to remember that during the Depression, FDR and Eleanor Roosevelt weren’t ones for ritzy parties, high fashion and expensive vacations either…and they could have afforded to pay for such things themselves, let alone getting them on the government dime. Whatever one thinks of their politics they were, essentially, decent human beings who had a sense of what living it up during war and depression would look and feel like to their fellow Americans.
As much as I might disagree with some of her views, Mrs. Roosevelt was an amazing human being and exactly the First Lady the country needed during depression, hardship and war. She flew all over the country at a time when flying wasn’t anywhere near comfortable as it is now, and she went to the slums, the mines and the small towns left without hope to let the American people know that someone in Washington knew what they were going through and actually gave a damn. Franklin couldn’t walk, so she became his legs.

And when war came, she ran herself ragged visiting the troops, selling bonds and comforting Gold Star mothers who had lost loved ones. She would have been outraged at the idea of spending millions on vacations or prancing around in designer clothes.
And FDR? His vacations consisted of therapy and playing pater familias at Warm Springs, going to Camp David and the odd yacht cruise for a day, a special relaxation for an old sailor.
Again, they were very different people than the current inhabitants of the White House. They were by no means perfect, but they came to give, not to take.

Sarah Palin Announces

There was talk that in March that Sarah Palin would launch a digital video channel of her own. Well, it happened but it’s not called Rogue TV.

Matos: Sarah says this is about a lot more than a news channel, but a community where we will be able to share ideas and discuss the issues of the day to find solutions.  She wants to talk directly to us on her terms on this channel without the need to please the powers-that-be. And perhaps Most important,  she is interested in hearing from us directly.

Palin says that together we will go beyond the sound bites and cut through the politically correct filter of the media and things like Washington D.C.’s crony capitalism. She says we’ll go around all that and go directly to the root of the problems confronting America and talk about the issues the mainstream media won’t talk about; looking at the ideas Washington doesn’t want you to hear or discuss. It will be inspiring, fun.. and there is even more…

“Tired of media filters? Well, so am I.  So, let’s go rogue together and launch our own member-supported channel! Please enjoy this video about this new venture and visit:” …Sarah Palin

“I hope you’ll check out this new online community and help us build it.” #sarahpalinchannel

Looks like Palin is falling the lead of her pal Glenn Beck…

SESSIONS: All Americans Must Help Stop Obama’s Dictatorial Threats to Expand Amnesty to Millions

Video:  Sens. Cruz and Sessions Colloquy on Stopping President Obama’s Amnesty (Long version  –  one hour 4 minutes – starts with Sessions – Important first 10 mins as Sessions lays out the plan… Cruz begins at 10 min mark)

Video:  Sessions: Congress Must Stop President’s Planned Amnesty Orders (Short Version –  about 2 minutes – 37 seconds into it Cruz speaks for a few seconds.)

By Senator Jeff Sessions

I call on the American public to rally Congress against the President’s openly declared threat to implement, by executive order, the amnesty that Congress has rejected:

How Congress chooses to act in the coming hours and days will determine whether the President succeeds in his plan to nullify the immigration laws of the United States.

Just yesterday, TIME magazine reported that the President is considering a grant of ‘work authorization for perhaps several million undocumented immigrants.’ Permitting those illegally present in the U.S. to work and take jobs is contrary to plain law, which the President has no power to change. Yet Democratic members of Congress have openly crowed about these planned executive actions.

It has now been extensively reported that these executive actions will likely expand his Deferred Action program (DACA) to apply to an additional 5–6 million adult illegal immigrants. The existing DACA program has been widely misunderstood. The executive action did not, as The Hill writes today, only result in ‘deferred deportations for young undocumented immigrants.’ Illegal immigrants in the interior of the U.S. have already, as a practical matter, been immune from enforcement under this Administration. DACA applies to individuals up to 30 years of age and provides actual amnesty papers, photo ID, and work permits to illegal immigrants—who can then take any job in America.

The President’s planned executive orders would expand this permitting program to another 5–6 million illegal immigrants. This would effectively end immigration enforcement in America.

No Member—House or Senate, Democrat or Republican—should support any bill with respect to the border crisis that does not include language explicitly prohibiting the Administration from taking such action. Congress must foreclose any possibility of these unlawful executive actions before congressional funding is granted. This is an essential precondition.

The American people have begged and pleaded for years for our laws to be enforced. We have people in our own country living in violence, fear, and poverty every single day. They have demanded an immigration policy that puts their jobs, wages, and communities first. Every citizen should pick up the phone and ask of their congressional representative: where do you stand?



7/25/2014: National Review, Gutiérrez: ‘I Think We Can Get 3 or 4, Maybe Even 5 Million People’ Amnesty via Executive Action

“Days after telling La Raza convention attendees that he is confident President Obama will use executive action to give legal status to millions of immigrants in the United States illegally, Representative Luis Gutiérrez (D., Ill.) predicted that the administration could legalize as many as 5 million people… Gutiérrez said he will meet with White House officials later in the day ‘to negotiate additional terms and avenues the president can use’ through executive action.”

7/17/2014: Daily Caller, Dem Lawmaker: Obama Has Promised To ‘Act Shortly’ By Granting Amnesty To Many Illegals

“Democratic lawmaker Tony Cardenas revealed that President Barack Obama promised the Congressional Hispanic Caucus on Wednesday he will ‘act shortly’ to bypass Congress and grant some form of amnesty to many illegal immigrants…”

7/3/2014: National Journal, Obama’s Immigration Independence Day

“Obama told the group [of amnesty advocates] that Boehner had informed him on June 24 there would be no votes on immigration before the midterm election but that he believed there was a good chance a comprehensive bill could pass in the next Congress. The president also told the group that Boehner urged him not to press ahead with executive action because that would make legislating more difficult next year.

Obama told the group, according to those present, his response to Boehner was: ‘Sorry about that. I’m going to keep my promise and move forward with executive action soon.’

In the room, there was something of a collective, electric gasp. The assembled immigration-rights groups had been leaning hard on Obama for months to use executive action to sidestep Congress and privately mocked what they regarded as Pollyanna hopes that House Republicans would budge…

Obama told the groups what they had been dying to hear—that he was going to condemn House Republicans for inaction and…provide legal status to millions of undocumented workers—all by himself…

Obama made it clear he would press his executive powers to the limit. He gave quiet credence to recommendations from La Raza and other immigration groups that between 5 million to 6 million adult illegal immigrants could be spared deportation under a similar form of deferred adjudication he ordered for the so-called Dreamers in June 2012…

Obama has now ordered the Homeland Security and Justice departments to find executive authorities that could enlarge that non-prosecutorial umbrella by a factor of 10. Senior officials also tell me Obama wants to see what he can do with executive power to provide temporary legal status to undocumented adults.”
