Indiana and the Gay Rights Lie

Ben Shapiro does a fine job of explaining why the gay marriage movement has nothing to do with tolerance or equality, but is, in truth, an Orwellian assault on freedom of religion.

The Baltimore neighborhood that saw the worst of the violence was already filled with many burned-out buildings and vacant lots that had not been rebuilt since the 1968 riots that followed the assassination of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.

Slavery Democrat Style

baltimore-riot-police-car-AFP-640x480

I have been knocked out by a sinus infection for the past two days, hence the light blogging.

Watching the images of the Baltimore riots makes me realize that another infection is raging across Democrat cities in America. It is the infection caused by iron-fisted, top-down government that dooms multiple generations of poor people to dependency upon ineffective government programs that promise utopia but deliver hell.

And what will the failed Democrat leaders of Baltimore demand in the aftermath of these riots?

More of the same.

More programs that fracture the black family. More programs that encourage black women to have babies out of wedlock. More programs that limit economic freedom. More programs that discourage free enterprise. More government programs that serve as nothing more than tools for the Democrat party to consolidate power.

This is slavery, Democrat style.

Democrats Give Rioters Space to Destroy Baltimore

YouTube Preview Image

 

I thought the first duty of government is to protect its citizens and their property.

But on Sunday Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake told reporters that city officials gave the Baltimore rioters “space” to destroy property:

“While we tried to make sure that they were protected from the cars and the other things that were going on. We also gave those who wished to destroy space to do that as well. And we work very hard to keep that balance and to put ourselves in the best position to deescalate, and that’s what you saw.”

Israel, Natural Gas, and Power in the Middle East

Israel is building up its naval power in order to defend its natural gas reserves.

Israel is building up its naval power in order to defend its offshore installations.

This is a fascinating analysis of Israel’s new economic profile with the discovery and exploitation of two giant off-shore natural gas deposits that belong exclusively to the Jewish state.

Benyamin Netanyahu, the Israeli Prime minister is known to joke about the fact that Moses led his people during forty years in the desert to the only place in the Middle East without oil (Marin Katusa, The Colder War, 2014). And, indeed, for the first sixty years of its existence, the lack of energy resources has been a major difficulty for Israel.

However, a profound change seems to be underway, since two giant off-shore natural gas deposits have been discovered in the Israeli exclusive economic zone in 2011. The Tamar and the Leviathan fields hold respectively 10 and between 19 and 22 trillion cubic feet of gas of estimated reserves, which could ensure decades of domestic consumption as well as exports (Katusa, ibid.)

Israel at 67

Karen prays at the Little Kotel.

Karen prays at the Little Kotel.

Today Israel is 67 years old.

But in truth, Israel is over 3,000 years old.

No matter how many expulsions, no matter how many boycotts, no matter how many usurpers, no matter how many enemies, Israel is the eternal Jewish homeland, the Jewish state.

And Jerusalem is the undivided capital of the Jewish state.

Next year in Jerusalem.

Signing Bonus for IslamoNazis of Iran

Iran-Deal

Each day I wake up, go though my morning routine, and then hesitate for a long time before checking my internet newsfeed. I procrastinate because I know that with each day Obama is in office there will be some new horror, and the promise of even greater horror, which Obama will ignore, make worse, lie about, or just give it his Orwellian spin.

His appeasement to the IslamoNazis of Iran has now reached a point where he is offering them a 50 billion dollar signing bonus.

Of course, the billions of bonus dollars will not just be used to hasten the Iranian nuclear program, but the money will be used to rebuild attack tunnels from Gaza into Israel.

Notice: Iran and Hamas have decided to ignore their Shia-Sunni sectarian war in favor of their common goal — the genocide of the Jewish people.

And Barack Obama is going to fund this alliance.

The Jewish State Alone

400_300_israel_flag_double_

Yesterday, Seraphic Secret wrote, “We Jews have always been alone and imperiled — but this is the first time that we are aligned against an apocalyptic nuclear power.”

In today’s WSJ, Bret Stephens headlines his weekly column, “Israel Alone”.

Recent conversations with senior Israeli officials are shot through with a sense of incredulity. They can’t understand what’s become of U.S. foreign policy.

They don’t know how to square Barack Obama’s promises with his policies. They fail to grasp how a president who pledged to work toward the abolition of nuclear weapons is pushing an accord with Tehran that guarantees their proliferation. They are astonished by the nonchalance with which the administration acquiesces in Iran’s regional power plays, or in al Qaeda’s gains in Yemen, or in the Assad regime’s continued use of chemical weapons, or in the battlefield successes of ISIS, or in Russia’s decision to sell advanced missiles to Tehran. They wonder why the president has so much solicitude for Ali Khamenei’s political needs, and so little for Benjamin Netanyahu’s.

Obama’s Jihad Against the Jewish State

Public hangings in Tehran.

Public hangings in Tehran.

It is clear that in spite of the fact that Iran chants “Death to America, Death to Israel” Barack Obama will sign any agreement with the IslamoNazis of Iran.

It is also clear that the Iranians know exactly how desperate is Obama for a deal. Now that the U.S. no longer designates Iran as a terrorist state, they have been hanging prisoners at a shocking pace.

So, the next time a liberal Democrat claims that theirs is the party of compassion, steer their gaze to the Iranian gallows where alleged homosexuals, adulterous wives, Israeli spies, and religious heretics are swinging by their broken necks.

Friday Photos: Drowning in Obama’s Oceania

mmlincolnhi-rez

This past week, White House spokesman Josh Earnest admitted that Iran is a state sponsor of terrorism who kill Americans. But, he continued, it would be unrealistic to expect the Iranian regime to give up terrorism.

This statement was in defense of Obama’s continuing appeasement of the IslamoNazis of Iran.

In the past, when Americans were murdered by foreign tyrants, American leaders would react with anger and horror. They would move to isolate such totalitarian states. They would try and overthrow these wicked regimes.

But Barack Obama believes that America is the original sin of global instability. If only America would surrender her hegemonic role, then the global community would sort itself out, and America could build a socialist paradise at home.

Of course, the Obama doctrine has set the Middle East on fire. With America’s withdrawal, the Westphalian model of nation states is giving way to classic Islamist imperialism. Death cults, tribalism, and religious sectarianism  are quickly erasing national borders, and birthing vast lawless regions where mass murder is the norm, and where hundreds of thousands of non-Muslims are under threat of Islamic genocide.

The only nation state in the region of which Obama clearly disapproves is Israel, the Jewish state, where democracy flourishes, where religious minorities have full equal rights, where homosexuals live openly and without fear, and where women are free of persecution.

But for Barack Obama, Israel is the problem, whereas Iran and Cuba are the solution.

Welcome to the moral inversions of Oceania.

A few pictures to deflect the gathering darkness.

Holocaust Memorial Day: Death March to Dachau

Sol Teichman survived the Holocaust and came to America as a penniless immigrant not knowing a word of English. In 1951, Sol was drafted into the Army where he served in Germany and then France.

Sol Teichman survived the Holocaust and came to America as a penniless immigrant not knowing a word of English. In 1951, during the Korean War, Sol was drafted into the United States Army. He served in Germany and then France.

One of my closest friends here in Los Angeles is Mr. Sol Teichman, a prominent citizen, businessman, philanthropist, and a Holocaust survivor.

Born on September 9, 1927, in the Hungarian town of Munkacs, Sol’s family were prominent and prosperous grain, bean and walnut merchants. The family lived in a lovely home in a quiet cul-de-sac and were known in the tight-knit Jewish community for their piety, charity, and close ties to the Belzer and Munkacs Hasidic dynasties.

Of course, the Nazi death grip descended on the Jews of Hungary, and by 1943, the Teichman home and business had been confiscated. The Jews of Munkacs were cruelly herded into a ghetto and then shipped in cattle cars to Auschwitz.

Sol, 17 years old, and his brother Steve, 14, survived the death camp, only to be sent on a death march to Dachau in August 1944.

Here is an excerpt from Sol’s privately printed memoir, The Long Journey Home, which I coauthored with Mr. Teichman, in which he describes hell on earth.

Iran Vows to Annihilate Black People

Iran-Israel

The headline is fictional.

But imagine if the IslamoNazis of Iran repeatedly vowed to rid the world of the cancer of black people.

Would Barack Obama continue to engage such a regime in nuclear negotiations? Would he seek to legitimize such a genocidal-yearning regime with endless appeasement and slavish private letters to their supreme leader?

Friday Photos: In Every Generation

Bookstore in Jewish Quarter, Paris ca. 1920

Bookstore in Jewish Quarter, Paris ca. 1920

On Passover, Jews around the world recite a passage from the Haggadah that strikes a note both poignant and defiant.

In every generation they [our enemies] rise up against us to destroy us, but the Holy One Blessed Be He saves us from their hands.

But Judaism does not place faith in faith alone. Man is born with free will and G-d expects us to exercise that free will in order to do what is right.

Jewish law holds—as does common sense—that it is incumbent to strike preemptively at your enemies before they attack you. Because Jewish history shows with Newtonian certainty that when people threaten to kill Jews — they mean it.

Our IslamoNazi enemies in Tehran have made it quite clear that they intend to annihilate the Jewish State. Barack Obama has, at the same time, made it even more clear, that he couldn’t care less about Israel or the Jewish people. To this doctrinaire Marxist who has made common cause with Jew-haters for his entire academic and political career, Israel is just an annoying and illegitimate neocolonial outpost in the Middle East.

In every generation they rise up.

The surprise is that the American people and 74% of American Jews rose up and freely elected one of our bitterest foes.

A few photos to enjoy over the next few days.

ObamaLand: Where Vocabulary Replaces Reality

YouTube Preview Image

 

This is a statement by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu regarding the proposed framework for a deal with Iran.

Reasonable people ask: If this framework for a deal with America and Iran is so bad, why on earth is Obama pursuing it with such fanatic zeal?

To answer this question, one has to understand that this non-deal-deal is not about Iran as a nuclear weapon nation. In fact, Obama has, through the framework, already conceded Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons. That’s why Iran’s ICBMs are not even mentioned in the framework. ICBMs are expressly for delivering nuclear warheads to their targets.

This is about Richard Nixon and his American-Chinese rapprochement.

Obama and the Hebrew Language

PharoahObama

First of all there is no agreement between Iran and the Obama administration. There is a framework for a deal. Whatever that means. And apparently Iran and Obama already disagree on the nature of the framework.

But let’s dispense with fine and not-so-fine print. Let’s cut to the proverbial chase.

The current framework for an agreement permits continued nuclear research at facilities built in violation of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), which Iran signed in 1970 but has violated repeatedly since at least the early 2000s.

Friday Photos: Passover, Time to Remember the Future

The world knows her as Lizabeth Scott, (1922 - 2015) the husky-voiced femme fatale and noir babe. But she was born Emma Matzo of Scranton Pa. Her best film is “Dead Reckoning” ('47).

Movie lovers know her as Lizabeth Scott, (1922 – 2015) the husky-voiced femme fatale and noir babe of the 40s and 50s. But she was born Emma Matzo of Scranton Pa. Her best film is “Dead Reckoning” (’47).

Jewish holidays do not simply recall the past. Jewish holidays are cautionary tales for all time. They remind us that Jewish history repeats itself with terrible constancy.

The Jewish people introduced ethical monotheism to the world — and for this gift the world has never forgiven us.

Thus, we are despised and demonized.

Obama’s New World Order

iran20a

Even as team Obama blows past another deadline in the endless and fantasy-laden negotiations with the IslamoNazis of Iran, the supreme leader informed the world that “destroying Israel is nonnegotiable.”

But of course, Obama will continue appeasing the IslamoNazis because he doesn’t care about or for Israel, and because he has an agenda. This agenda has nothing to do with America’s security, nothing to do with the security concerns of the Sunni states, and especially nothing to do with the existential concerns of the six million Jews who live in Israel.

Barack Obama wants what Barack Obama wants because he is a radical leftist, because he is a clinical narcissist, because he is a postmodern Democrat. Which is to say he lives in a world where words mean whatever you want them to mean at any given moment—as long as they serve your ideological ends.

Obama: The New Pharaoh

In the Passover seder we recite the following quote from the Torah:

And there arose a new king over Egypt who did not know Joseph. (Exodus 1.8)

The sages tell us that the new Pharaoh did not want to know Joseph, did not want to acknowledge the Jewish slave who rose to become Viceroy of Egypt, the wise Israelite who rescued Egypt from famine.
