Two Strikes For Barry

When reached via cell phone immediately after President Obama’s speech urging a Palestinian state based on 1967 borders, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's spokesman Mark Regev sounded as though he had been slapped in the face.

Netanyahu swiftly rejected Obama's call for Israel to pull back to the borders that existed before the 1967 Six-Day War. Roughly translated from Hebrew, a statement from the Prime Minister’s office said that they appreciated Obama's commitment to peace, but called the pullback to the 1967 borders "indefensible," and said that the Palestinians were less than an honest partner in the peace process. 

While the idea of using the 1967 borders as a starting point to negotiate land swaps for a final peace deal is not new, hearing an American president use those words sent chills through the Netanyahu government, which is loathe to even think the words “'67 borders.” 

Every Israeli television channel carried the speech live and commentators did not have to wait for a formal reaction to the speech to comment that Netanyahu and his right-wing coalition government would feel both blindsided and abandoned by a U.S. administration that has never been viewed as a friend. 

Speaking with Fox News immediately after the speech, former Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Dore Gold called the speech a “a radical shift in U.S. policy.” 

This is an easy one. Palestine is a geographical location and not a country. What is the monetary unit of Palestine? There is no monetary unit of Palestine. What constitutes the basis of its economy? Charity. Prior to 1967, what did the Arab world call Palestinians? Jews. What is the official language of Palestine? Many. There is no "official" Palestinian language.

And on and on. The Arab world dumping their criminals and insane into one tract of land to form "Palestine" is what gave Castro the idea for the Cuban Boat Lift.

Therefore, there can be no definable border for Israel and Palestine, as there is no such a country as Palestine.

Senate GOP Marks a First - Blocking an Obama Judicial Nominee

Democrats needed 60 votes to move the nomination forward to final passage. Senate Republicans on Thursday toppled the nomination, 52-43, of controversial University of California-Berkeley law professor Goodwin Liu, nominee for the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, a first in President Barack Obama's presidency.
In the end, only one Republican voted for the nominee, Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. Nebraska's Ben Nelson was the lone Democrat to oppose Liu. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, a former chairman of the Judiciary Committee, chose to vote "present," a sign of his long-time opposition to judicial nominee filibusters. Democrats needed 60 votes to move the nomination to final passage.

GOP Leader Mitch McConnell said the nominee's writings "reveal a left-wing ideologue who views the role of a judge not as that of an impartial arbiter, but as someone who views the bench as a position of power." And though the Kentucky senator said he has "nothing against (Liu) personally, "Earning a lifetime appointment isn't a right, nor is it a popularity contest."

Liu has been on every patriots hit-list as being a socialist scumbag having no business earning a living as a judge. Good job, and a good day when anyone stands up to our Emperor-in-Chief.

Judea was re-named Palestine by the Romans in the hope of stopping the constant re-occurring revolts by the Jewish peoples of Judea.
There was never a "Palistinian people" The muslim "Palistinian" residents of this area were Syrian, Lebanese, Egyptian,or Nomads, etc. The Judean area of the middle east had only one comprehensive nation following tribalism, and that was Judea.

No deal made with the so called Palistinians would be honored by them (as stated in their own Koran)and any effort to weaken Israels defense in the name of "Peace" will result in the death of Israel.

I'd like to have been a fly on the wall to see the hissy fit Obo-douche threw once he went backstage. One thing for sure: Bibi won't be getting invited to dinner anytime soon. Obo-douche - tearing down democratic alliances since 2008 ( actually before then if you consider his treasonous European campaign tour. ) ( Is it treason if you are a foreigner? )

Damn I dunno. Seems unlikely an alien could be charged with sedition. Deportation, yes.

And yet, Mitch McConnel gave us the commie judge that said we have no right to resist unlawful entry by government thugs. Go figger.

Sometimes it just doesn't seem that Republicans cannot select good judges for love nor money. Maybe they just trust too much.
