WASHINGTON — Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has declined an invitation by Senate Democrats to meet during his visit to Washington next week, citing fears it might “compound the misperception of partisanship” surrounding the trip.
Fictional Palestine should be completely discredited for all the world to see…(but don’t hold your collective breath with Hussein O in charge.) .
“Negotiating with them?”
Right…How bout you “negotiate” with your executioner eh.
Oh yes…Can you please please please use a duller knife.
What freedom lovers those Muzlims are.
Perhaps it’s time to have a look back to what someone prophesied back on Sept 11 of a different decade.
Sept. 11, 1973: (Note the date)
Israel Police minister Shlomo Hillel speaking to the International Police Association about confronting terrorism (including aviation terrorism).
“Surrender to terrorism,” said Hillel “results not only in the decline of the value of law but also degrades every international moral authority, encourages the growth of murder, terrorism and global extortionism, and pushes the world into a state of anarchy and chaos.”
“I don’t understand why Cupid was chosen to represent Valentine’s Day. When I think about romance, the last thing on my mind is a short, chubby toddler coming at me with a weapon.” lol
” We are all a little weird and life’s a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.”
If love is blind, why is lingerie so popular?
Happy Valentines DaY sweet friends!
Corny pick up lines: Ha.
“Do you have a Band-Aid? Because I skinned my knee when I fell for you.”
“Are you a kleptomaniac? Because you just stole my heart.”
“Good thing I brought my library card, because I’m checkin’ you out.”
But seriously…….It was once said: “I love you because the entire universe conspired to help me find you.”
I do believe that we have built a bridge my friends..so from your hearts to mine..Bless you all and thank you for being keepers of the Flame.
“The best thing to hold onto in life is each other.”
Thank y’all for keeping me sort of sane.
I love you my fellow patriots. Never give up your love of country and what is righteous. We Will Not Submit.
THIS is what I am makin today…Any takers?..lolz
“Anyone can catch your eye, but it takes someone special to catch your heart.”
This is the state of our Nation my friends. There are NO words.
By February 20th, 2010, the Battle of Marjah had been underway for a week. In order to seize the Afghan district—an IED-infested, Taliban-dominated collection of villages and crisscrossing canals and tree lines that were a defending fighter’s dream—the U.S. military had divided its force into thirds….
As the Special Forces soldiers wore Afghan Army uniforms, the Taliban concluded that there were virtually no Americans on their southern flank. The fighting there was intense.
Having secured a defensive position in the heart of the Balakino Bazaar (picture the Bakara market in the film Black Hawk Down, but more impoverished) the Special Forces team, led by a captain named Matt Golsteyn, repeatedly attempted to expand their footprint, but regularly met fierce resistance. On the 20th, one of the team’s assaults into Taliban territory took a turn for the worse.
An Afghan soldier was wounded and a vehicle got stuck in the mud as insurgents raked the coalition formation with gunfire.
Under heavy fire, Golsteyn, as Dan Lamothe of the Washington Post summarized this week, “ran about 150 meters to the trapped MRAP to retrieve a powerful 84mm Carl Gustav recoilless rifle, an anti-tank weapon. While moving under gunfire, he coordinated a medical evacuation for the wounded Afghan soldier and then opened fire with the Carl Gustav.”
Running through the open despite the fact that the Taliban had successfully pinned down the rest of his men, Golsteyn looked like he “was alone fighting 30 enemy fighters out in the poppy fields.” He then coordinated airstrikes from F/A-18 Hornets and a drone, silencing the enemy. The battle lasted four hours.
For his actions, Golsteyn was awarded the Silver Star, and was told that the medal would likely be upgraded to the Distinguished Service Cross (the Army’s equivalent of the Navy Cross, and second only to the Medal of Honor) after review by the Secretary of the Army.
I can confirm that this was true because I was present at the ceremony where Golsteyn received his Silver Star, and personally overheard Lieutenant General John Mulholland, then the commander of the Army’s Special Operation’s Command, say that an upgrade was under consideration.
In fact, I know Golsteyn—now a major—well. I served alongside him in Marjah for months (though not on the 20th of February—I was among the thousands of Marines fighting elsewhere in the district that day) and can attest that he is one of the most courageous, dedicated, and honorable officers I encountered during my service in the military.
He would give his life for the men he led without a moment’s thought—and he very nearly did, on several occasions. When we returned from our deployments and honors began to roll in for Golsteyn, I reflected that it is nice to see the good guys get recognized.
It didn’t last long. In 2011… I learned that the Army had launched a criminal investigation into his actions during the battle….
The investigation, apparently, had nothing to do with the acts of bravery that earned Golsteyn his medal. Instead, according to the Washington Post, which cited officials familiar with the case, it concerned “an undisclosed violation of the military’s rules of engagement in combat for killing a known enemy fighter and bomb maker.”
….Alerted about the controversy by another Army officer, Captain Will Swenson, Congressman Duncan Hunter wrote last year to John McHugh, the secretary of the Army, asking about the status of Golsteyn’s seemingly endless career freeze. Apparently the secretary did not take kindly to the inquiry, as he responded in a letter last November that not only would he not be upgrading Golsteyn’s Silver Star to a Distinguished Service Cross, but would be revoking Golsteyn’s Silver Star entirely…
The revocation of an award such as the Silver Star is extraordinarily rare, and typically would happen in the case of the recipient being convicted of a serious crime that in some way dishonored his service. But not only has Golsteyn not been convicted of a crime—he hasn’t even been charged with one.
McHugh would not reveal to Hunter specifically why he was taking his action beyond submitting the innuendo that he was privy to “derogatory information” regarding Golsteyn’s record.
What could this information be? Who knows? Having, according to Hunter, spent years threatening Golsteyn’s men, searching for and failing “to find one piece of evidence to corroborate the allegation” that launched the investigation, the Army clearly decided to punish Golsteyn anyway, through publicly dishonoring him in a manner that allows him effectively no recourse or due process….
Such is the quality of American military leadership that generals and political appointees like McHugh will send courageous soldiers like Golsteyn into incredibly difficult (some would suggest impossible) circumstances, then invest years in second-guessing their actions after the fact—and then, finding no evidence of wrongdoing, still publicly dishonor the man without giving him a chance to defend himself.
Never mind the fact that if a Taliban bombmaker did in fact die in a violation of the rules of engagement, then in what topsy-turvy universe is that a bad thing?..
In any event, if the Army truly does believe that Golsteyn violated the Uniform Code of Military Justice, then they should charge him with a crime. If they can’t do that, then we must conclude that insufficient evidence of a crime exists, in which case Secretary McHugh should give him the Distinguished Service Cross he deserves….
Golsteyn, Swenson, Gant, and others like them are led by men who interrupt their political intrigues and email flirtations with wealthy socialites only to crucify the troops actually doing the fighting when, for whatever reason, they become politically inconvenient—preferably, as with Golsteyn, in a manner that allows for no response or appeal.
Most Americans would take one look at Golsteyn’s record of service and call him a hero. The men who will not share Golsteyn’s risks, but who will hurl innuendoes at him after the fact and publicly dishonor him in a manner that allows him to mount no case on his own behalf?
There’s a word for them too: cowards.
How many ways can you say disgraceful?
Perhaps the new ROE’s should just include surrender. Pffft.
Unlike our PC pathetic so called “Commander in Chief”…our Soldiers, Navy, Marines are the ones who see a clear line between Good and Evil.
This lack of gratitude should not go unpunished.
And…Unlike the dhimmi Congress members, our soldiers actually ahem…work.
Their sacrifice, self-discipline, and personal responsibility is unparalleled.
As y’all know, I have worked with soldiers returning from Afghanistan and Iraq, and trust me Sweet Friends…Whether they fly, march or sail….They got our back.
Perhaps someone needs to remind the real “cowards” who demean our heroes that FREEDOM AINT FREE.
God bless you Army Major Matt Golsteyn.
Hang tough. Your true allies have your back, as they apparently always have…..
Green Beret Sniper, Bryan Sikes, hilariously slams ‘cupcake’ Michael Moore for calling American Sniper, Chris Kyle, a coward.
Good afternoon there sweetheart, I hope this finds you alive and well. You can thank our men and women of the armed forces for that, by the way, and that also includes us cowardly snipers.
It seems you’ve found time between licking the jelly off your fingers and releasing your grasp of a bear claw to tweet some junk about snipers being cowards.
My buddies and I got a good laugh over the tweet, so I thank you. For a guy worth $50 million dollars, you sure have quite a bit to bitch and cry about. I guess like a moth to flame, you too gravitate towards things that are popular and in the moment — in this case it’s snipers.
Too bad for you that your attempt at being relevant via your 70+ year old family experience has failed. It has only made you look dumber than a bag of hammers. Next time you should try something more original than going after snipers for one reason or another…that was so last month.
It’s typical of “men” like you to criticize the intestinal fortitude, focus, discipline and patriotism of a sniper. It must stem from an inferiority complex or something. But hey, it’s okay cupcake.
We snipers are thick skinned and the efforts of world class turds such as yourself to portray us in a negative light only makes us laugh.
If you and I were in the same room, I’d throw you a smile and gently pat you on the head knowing you’re nothing more than a mouth breathing, Crisco sweating waste of space not even worthy of being in the presence of a sniper.
It’s almost funny how people like you preach things like ‘acceptance’ and ‘not passing judgement’ or ‘labeling people’, but then are the first to do so when a person is in some way dissimilar from you.
So tenderfoot, I leave you with this final thought: what if you found yourself in some sort of hostage situation where you were held at knife-point by some crazed person and they were dead set on making an example of you by bleeding you out on Hollywood Blvd in front of the world, and the only way out was with the precision aimed fire of a sniper?
Would you want that coward to take the shot? Because knowing how you feel about snipers such as myself and your hatred of firearms, I’d probably drop the mag, roll the bolt and go get a Jack & Coke before helping you out.
My new HERO! Green Beret Sniper, Bryan Sikes Hooah!
Can you sat OOOHRAH!!!???
Now go see American Sniper sweet friends!
The non-violent Negro is seeking to create the beloved community. He directs his attack on the forces of evil rather than on individuals. The tensions are not between the races, but between the forces of justice and injustice; between the forces of light and darkness.
(Sermon delivered 1957)
- Rev.Al Sharpton (do they get that title out of a Cracker Jack box?)
And who can forget good ole Hussein Obama’s ahem..”former” pastor: Rev.Jeremiah Wright
While Dr. King preached unity and brotherhood, they sermonize paranoia and a noxious hatred of other minorities. (aka “whitey”)
Which brings us to another bozo of mention: -Elijah Muham-MAD All RACISTS
Elijah Muhammad taught was widely viewed as a black separatist doctrine. He taught that blacks were the original people on the Earth and had been tricked out of their power, conquered and oppressed by the Caucasian people via a global system of white supremacy.
He further taught that the white race was produced through a series of genetic breeding experiments conducted by a Dr. Ya-kub, which yielded the lighter species of human beings.
Mu-ham-mad preached that All-ah would cause a holocaust to happen wherein White America would be destroyed, and faithful followers of Is-lam in America would be ushered to safe areas, later to emerge as conquerors and settlers of a new world.
Along comes Hussein Obama.
Being canonized for political sainthood by the mainstream media.
And the masses are tripping all over themselves honoring this sleazy Chicago politician who has not only associated with this riff raff but aligns himself with them politically, and spiritually.
Remember Hussein Obama’s Pale-stinian Buddy RASH-id Kh-alidi ..who um..supports Muzlims killing Jews in Israel? (Whatever happened to that missing tape huh?)
Martin Luther King lived in “da hood” till the day he died.
Self proclaimed Rev. Wright lives in some exclusive lily white suburb with the oodles of money his racist fleeced flock continue to bestow upon him.
Martin Luther King believed that a man should be judged by the content of his character and not the color of his skin.
Wright believed the exact opposite of that.
Apparently for decades Hussein O and his wifey poo had no problem with that.
Martin Luther King preached that the “Promised Land is equality”.
Rev. Wright shouted and shrieked that his idea of the “promised land” is revenge on whitey, on Jews and on America.
Apparently for decades Hussein O and his wifey poo had no problem with that.
Martin Luther King was an educated, eloquent man.
Rev.(Can’t do anything) Wright is an ebonics speaking, hateful clown.
Apparently for decades Hussein O and his wifey poo had no problem with that either.
Obama could have ditched that racist, anti semitic, so called pastor 2 decades ago..but no..year after year he and his “African queen” sat there listening to him preach victimhood, hate and yes..RACISM.
Let us not forget Michelle Obama’s comment “this is “the first time in her adult life she feels proud to be an American.” Was inauguration day her second?
Not to mention that Dr. King’s niece, Dr. Alveda King, has been speaking out against Hussein Obama. Criticizing the Messiah
Because Hussein Obama is so extremely pro-choice, this election and inauguration does not bring America closer to her uncle’s vision for it.
Hussein Obama is exploiting the memory of Dr. King while forming not a campaign but a movement.
Fear not being labeled a racist for not supporting him or his anti American ideology– by his knee-jerk defenders my friends.
In Hussein Obama and his racist, Marxists’ friends’ world:
Ham-ASS is Israel
Gitmo terrorists are U.S. soldiers
Black is White ..ooops..wrong analogy
Day is night….oops …dark and light?..no good..one more try: Good is Evil.
Here are some of his beautiful words:
-There is something in this universe that justifies the biblical writer in saying, “You shall reap what you sow.” This is a law-abiding universe. This is a moral universe. It hinges on moral foundations. If we are to make of this a better world, we’ve got to go back and rediscover that precious value that we’ve left behind.
Imagine saying that today with the IzlamoNazis around just itching to whine about how UN-inclusive that is.
The most dangerous type of atheism is not theoretical atheism, but practical atheism —that’s the most dangerous type. And the world, even the church, is filled up with people who pay lip service to God and not life service.
And there is always a danger that we will make it appear externally that we believe in God when internally we don’t. We say with our mouths that we believe in him, but we live with our lives like he never existed. That is the ever-present danger confronting religion. That’s a dangerous type of atheism.
(Sermon delivered February 1954).
And my all time favorite:
Speaking at the annual convention of the Rabbinical Assembly in 1968, Dr. King said:
“The response of some of the so-called young militants does not represent the position of the vast majority of Negroes.
There are some who are color-consumed and they see a kind of mystique in blackness or in being colored, and anything non-colored is condemned. We do not follow that course … Peace for Israel means security, and we must stand with all our might to protect her right to exist, its territorial integrity and the right to use whatever sea lanes it needs.
Israel is one of the great outposts of democracy in the world, and a marvelous example of what can be done, how desert land can be transformed into an oasis of brotherhood and democracy. Peace for Israel means security, and that security must be a reality,”
I wonder what Sharpton and Farakhan have to say bout that…Hmmm.Never mind. They don’t deserve the right to even utter his name.
God bless the memory of a true leader and America and Israel lover: Martin Luther King.
Justin Ramos, the son of slain New York City police officer Rafael Ramos is comforted by his mother— Maritza Ramos, following the funeral.
Rest easy and may you watch over and protect your brothers and sisters down below.
I want you to know that I see you. I see you choose the booth in the restaurant that allows you to have your back against the wall. I see you walking to your next traffic stop while you hope that it isn’t your last.
I see you pulled over, two hours past your shift, as you finish your reports under a street light. I see you as you direct traffic in the scorching heat, the gusting snow, and the downpour of rain.
I see you being filmed every time you try to do your job. I see you as you watch mainstream media crucify your character while minimizing your cause. I see that you are tired. I see that you are frustrated and misunderstood.
I see that you are hurting as the world watches you bury your brothers and sisters that died because they were guilty of one thing; wearing a uniform with a badge. I see you. I see that you are flesh and bones just like me.
I see that you are a human being who has a heart that beats for your calling to serve and protect.
I see your cause and I want you to know that I appreciate it…..
Every year as the clock strikes midnight on December 31st, the eyes of this glorious world turn to my City..heh….the brilliant lights, the dynamism…the “happening” that is: Times Square.
10, 9, 8, 7, 6………..
It’s as if the world is holding its breath…until that clock finally strikes twelve.
Waiting for the “Ball” to descend from atop One Times Square.
Waiting to usher in the hope and promise of the New Year. Woohoo!
Last year I was one of the one million (crazy) people in Times Square, along with literally -millions nationwide and over a billion watching throughout the entire world.
Whether you’re part of a star-studded musical performance down South, tossing balloons up North, shaking pom-poms in the U.K., confetti in Spain, or possibly watching a colorful pyrotechnic display in Australia…. For just one moment, let us feel as though we are truly united.
What a feeling…..
We bid a collective farewell to the past year, and we best pray hard sweet friends, for hope for the coming year.
(And we all know why)
Good riddance to bad karma and bad vibes. Ack!
The time is drawing near……… Sooooooooo….Pucker up guyz n dollz!
HAPPY NEW YEAR SWEET FRIENDS FAR AND NEAR!
Youth is when you’re allowed to stay up late on New Year’s Eve. Middle age is when you’re forced to.
New Year’s Eve, where auld acquaintance be forgot. Unless, of course, those tests come back positive.
Most of all:
Keep speaking out. Never give up.
Like the elephant, we are unconscious of our own strength. When it comes to understanding the power we have to make a difference in our own lives, we might as well be asleep. If you want to make your dreams come true, wake up. Wake up to your own strength. Wake up to the role you play in your own destiny. Wake up to the power you have to choose what you think, do, and say.
Bless you all sweet readers for your unending support and Love!
Turkey, stockings, that jolly guy in the red suit–!!! these things are supposed to be stuffed during the holidays.
You? Not so much.
It may seem impossible to make it to the New Year without gobbling up every last delectable goodie. Well, read on for an early holiday gift: a guide to enjoying your favorite treats through the season so you don’t come out the other side of January 1 with extra padding.
2-If you have to sample something, put it on a plate first,,,, Eating right out of the pot or pan makes it easy to lose track of how much you’re consuming.
3-Keep healthy snacks on hand.
4-Be aware of little bites. They may look harmless, but mini appetizers often contain about 100 calories and can easily add up without filling you up.
Yikes! If you did over do it:
Ice it. Pick up some small plastic containers when you’re food shopping so you can freeze leftovers in reasonable portions Move them out of sight—stat. Wrap and put leftovers away as soon as the partygoers leave so you aren’t tempted to nibble as you clean up in the kitchen.
TAKE A 30-MINUTE WALK. Do this first thing in the morning to help jumpstart your metabolism and put you in a healthy-eating mindset for the rest of the day.
Orrr…Just hang out here and inhale all these goodies..lol
Sweet Friends..Wishing you all the
Hope, Wonder, and Joy
that the Season can bring!
The now-repaired banner asks “Are you good without God? Millions are.”
CHICAGO (Reuters) – Holiday hooliganism is no longer limited to thieves running off with baby Jesus from a nativity scene or vandals throwing eggs at mangers.
Atheist decorations also have become a target for destruction after their addition to some public forums in recent years as a counter-argument to menorahs and creches, a Wisconsin-based secularist group said on Friday.
Ah yes. Those charming, polite athiests at it again….
Can’t imagine why anyone would be um ‘offended’ by their anti GOD messages, can you?
The world is growing colder and darker during our chilly winter months.
Short days. Long nights. Veryyyyyy long nights.
But as we know sweet Friends…Tis all about “the Light”. The candles of the Menorah, the dazzling Christmas tree lights.
All dispelling the darkness in their own special way.
Can you still discover the magic of timeless tales.
Can you sense the wonder of it all.
Can you laugh?
An atheist professor was teaching a college class and he told the class that he was going to prove that there was not a God.
He said, “God if you are real, then I dare you to knock me off this platform. I’ll give you 15 minutes!”
Ten minutes went by He kept taunting God, saying, “Here I am God, I’m still waiting” He got down to the last couple of minutes and a big 230 pound United States Marine happened to walk by the door and heard what the professor said. The Marine walked in the class room and in the last minute, he walked up, hit the professor full force, and sent him flying off the platform.
The professor got up, obviously shaken and said, “Wow, where did you come from and why did you do that?” The Marine replied, “God was busy, so He sent me!”
Happy Chanukah, Merry Christmas, Seasons Greetings and Happy New Year to you all Sweet Friends!
The touching image of a young boy and police officer hugging at protest for slain teen Michael Brown has gone viral this week.
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – An African-American boy holding a “Free Hugs” sign stood crying in front of a police barricade at a Ferguson rally in Portland.
A white police officer motioned for him to come closer. The officer then asked the boy for a hug – and they embraced, the boy’s anguished face streaming with tears.
A photographer captured the encounter earlier this week, and the photo has become popular on social media. It’s an unusual image as people around the country protest a grand jury’s decision to not indict a white police officer in the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri.
The elephants in question are living in close proximity to two different African tribes; the Maasai and the Kamba.
The men from these tribes differ in dress, language, and, more importantly, how they treat the elephants.
Maasai men sometimes kill the elephants. It seems the Maasai don’t particularly appreciate the elephants attacking Maasai tribesmen and their cows. The Kamba men, on the other hand, are gentle farmers who live among, but do not threaten, the elephants. Perhaps they don’t own cows.
Please understand that the Maasai men do not attack the elephants every time they encounter one, and some Maasai men, perhaps the majority, will never find cause to try to kill an elephant. The elephants know, however, that a greater threat exists from Maasai than from Kamba.
So, how does this affect elephant behavior?
Maasai men like to wear red robes. Kamba men do not. So when the elephants see men in red robes approaching they react defensively. Usually they flee, or they will form defensive perimeters around their young. When the Kamba approach the elephants seem to be completely unconcerned and just go about their business.
The elephants don’t just notice the difference in dress. They’re also tuned into to differences in human dialect. The Maasai and Kamba have distinctive vocal and dialect differences … at least distinctive enough that these elephants can recognize them.
The researchers played a recordings of Maasai and Kamba men saying “Look, look over there. A group of elephants is coming.” When the elephants heard the recordings of the Kamba men they took notice but exhibited no untoward fear or anxiety. When they heard the voices of the Maasai men the reaction was different. The elephants fled and once again moved to protect their young.
Karen McComb, a behavioral ecologist at the University of Sussex in England explained the elephant behavior upon hearing the recordings of the Maasai and Kamba. “Cognitively, they know what they’re doing, she said, “and they adjust their reaction to exactly what they’re hearing.”
OK … what’s going on here?
We have elephants altering their behavior when encountering different African tribesmen. Sometimes the elephants go into a defensive mode based upon a visual clue, the red robes, or speech patterns. Other visual and aural clues cause them no distress whatsoever.
Has it struck you yet? Come on, folks. This really isn’t that difficult. These elephants are PROFILING!
They’re basing their reaction to encountering different groups of men based on past experience. Members of one group are more likely to be dangerous to the elephants than members of the other, and the elephants react accordingly.
I’m afraid that to get through to the irrational mind of a liberal, I have to state the obvious here.
There is no real difference in the elephant’s negative and defensive reaction to the red robes of the Maasai than a person’s reaction to someone wearing a hoodie or gang apparel on the street.
There is no real difference between an elephant’s heightened sense of alert upon hearing a particular speech pattern over our reaction to hearing dialects identifiable as coming from inner city gangster culture. Skin color? Not a factor. In case you don’t already know this; the Maasai and the Kamba are both black. (Can’t really call them African Americans for obvious reasons. Well … maybe not so obvious to liberals.)
Experience instructs. People — and elephants — learn.
When elephants exhibit this behavior in the wild it’s an occasion for marveling at their intelligence. When humans exhibit this behavior in high crime areas, it’s called racism.
Amen Martin Luther King Jr.
Now to all the whitey, “cracka”, honkey haters out there…..*who claimed they have EARNED the right to hate on people…because clearly “white man can’t jump”…
Hate is hate is hate.
oh and P.S. Y’all are the ones still callin each other Niggerz.
