Jew Hater Obama and His UN Failure

Recent anti-Israel sentiments by the current administration does not surprise.  Not at all.  The relationship between Obama and Netanyahu has always been contentious, to say the least.  But now, as he winds down his failed presidency, Obama can't help but engage in more hateful attacks against the only nation in the Middle East worth a damn. 

There is no legitimate excuse for the behavior of our ambassador, which no doubt was the result of administration direction.  To have abstained from voting on this newest anti-Israel resolution is not only a departure from long-standing US policy, but a direct slap in the face of one of our greatest allies.  To pretend that building homes on what is actually Israeli land is the true issue preventing peace in the region is just one more indication of the stupidity and ignorance and deceit of Obama, his administration, the UN and the left in general.  The true obstruction to peace is the hate of the muslim world against Israel, and the Palestinian agenda that aims to destroy them.  This wish is shared by many in the muslim world and Obama has done much to appease it and by doing so, is complicit in all attempts to make that aim a reality.  His Iran deal is further proof.

But one remarkably idiotic statement by his current buffoonish Secretary of State, John Kerry (oh, how happy I am that this crap-for-brains didn't win the presidency in '04) is this one...that Israel can be Jewish or it can be a democracy, but it can't be both. 

Let's set aside the fact that it has been both throughout its brief history.  It is a mostly Jewish state that has democratically elected muslims in its Knesset.   How many Jews are in the governments of any muslim nation?  Might "zero" be to large a guess?  Israel's identity is inextricably tied to its Jewish history, even more so than is American to its Christian roots. 

But what of those muslim nations, particularly those who pretend they are "Palestinians", as if that is a thing?  Are they not entirely muslim while not being anywhere close to democratic (except to the left who aren't bright enough to know what that even means)?  Where is Kerry's, and of course Obama's, admonition that the Pallies and the muslim world in general cease their "death to Israel" attitudes and behaviors in order to move toward a lasting peace?

I'm already on record as ignoring the Palestinian's claims with regard to Israel, pre-1967 borders, right of return and their false claim to be a people that deserve a state of their own.  They deserve rebuke and opposition until such time as they prove that they can accept Israel and regard them as equals...and even then, they are entitled to nothing with regard to land that is rightfully and historically Israel. 

But Israel is worthy of our support and alliance.  This administration has crapped on that relationship for too long and it is just one more reason why the end of the Obama years is a reason for great celebration, both domestically and worldwide. 

UPDATE: 

As I continued to read up on the details surrounding this issue, I came upon various videos and podcasts that explain how the entire claim of a "Palestinian people", as the term is now used in order to create a separate state, is total nonsense and one of the greatest lies perpetrated in human history.   There is no need for a "two-state solution", as there has already been a two-state solution in place for decades.  The following link is to a podcast wherein the history of the region is explained in great detail.  There is nothing within it that can't be researched and verified as it is, as I have mentioned, but one of many from which I could have chosen to make the point.  I may add more later, but it shouldn't be necessary.  Before I post the link, check out this admission:

"The Palestinian people does not exist.  The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity.  In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese.  Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people."

-PLO official Zahir Muhsein, interview with Dutch newspaper Trouw, March 31, 1977

So Here We Are

OK.  So Trump won.  Now what? 

So far, I see things I like and things I don't like.  His selections for most of his cabinet posts are pretty good, a few not so good, others I have yet to judge one way or another.  I'd love to see him appoint John Bolton as Secretary of State, if for no other reason than to see leftist head's explode like a 4th of July fireworks display (Oooh!  That's the kind I like!)  Though neither of them needed Bolton's help, JB would make Clinton and Kerry look like absolute idiots.  He's not a pushover and he knows foreign affairs far better than either of them.

Not crazy about Trump's moves concerning either Carrier or Boeing.  With Carrier, it is really no different than what lefties do to keep large companies from leaving town.  They offer a deal.  While I like the the company isn't moving to Mexico, I'm hoping it doesn't mean that as president, Donnie will satisfy himself with picking winners and losers like Obama does.  The real goal is to remove the reasons that compel them to leave.  That means getting together with Congress to lower corporate tax rates and ease regulations everywhere it makes sense to do so.  That's about all a president can do or should do. 

From there, one must hope that there are unemployed people who will choose to work for any of these corporations that stay or return.  I recently heard that there are about half a million manufacturing jobs available right now that go unfilled.  These are good paying, skilled positions.  How many are offering on the job training, I don't know.  To what extent a president can influence work ethic, I hope Trump can figure out, because many of those who dropped out of the job market don't really wish to return at this point.  And the young aren't quite of the same cut as workers of previous generations, so remaining and returning companies are only part of the solution to unemployment.  But Trump has campaigned on making it easier for companies to stay and thrive, so let's hope he can have success on his end of the bargain.

Boeing is a different deal.  And it's a deal between them and the those who ordered their talents in developing a new fleet for AirForceOne planes.  They aren't even contracted to build anything yet.  I just don't think it's as simple as saying "that's too much dough...forget it".  At the same time, it puts people on notice that Trump is concerned about costs for that which government intends to do.  So that's good.  I just hope he doesn't think he can simply oppose something superficially and expect that his will be done.

Over at Dan's, he worries about Trump's truthfulness.  Remarks Trump made about landslide wins and millions of illegal votes have provoked Dan's concern.  I have trouble with Trump's liberal use of hyperbole, but mostly because of reactions to such as in the case of Dan.  When Trump doesn't weigh his words, he'll have to waste time clarifying or walking back from them.  That's just the type of crap the left loves, since it's easier than actually coming up with solutions to problems that actually make sense.

But worse, Dan's concern is ludicrous given the deceit of the opposing party leaders.  "If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor."  "Benghazi was the result of a video."  "I was pinned down by sniper fire in Bosnia."  and a host of other crap sandwiches served up by Obama, Clinton and others in the Democratic party.  They live on that stuff, draw in voter support by such stuff and have no shame in continually perpetuating such stuff.  But should Trump exaggerate....OH.  MY.  GOSH!!!  Can't have that, can we?

The bottom line, though, is that I am still filled with trepidation with Trump's victory, while still greatly relieved by it.  But I think he's off to a fairly good start, even if not a perfect one.  We'll see.
