Unexamined Premises

Twelve Years Later…

September 11th, 2013 - 8:59 am

…politically, we’ve seen the rise and enshrinement of the Permanent Bipartisan Fusion Party, a hereditary caste of politicians from both “sides” of the aisle who are in complete agreement on the objectives of electoral office (personal enrichment and the arbitrary exercise of power) and disagree only around the margins. Bush, Clinton — what difference, at this point, does it make?

… with Obamacare on the verge of implementation — something everyone agrees will be an utter disaster — a strangely impotent GOP shows absolutely no inclination to stop it. Because, in fact, they don’t want to.

… unaccountable agencies, such as the EPA, effectively make law via “regulations” designed to throttle private enterprise; in the words of the Declaration of Independence, the federal government “has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.”

… we’ve become of nation of lawyers, not men. So much so that –

… the people of California were told by the chief justice of the Supreme Court that they had no legal standing to defend an amendment they proposed and made part of their own state constitution.

Why is this man smiling?

Why is this man smiling?

Now ask yourself: who’s winning the war on America that began twelve years ago today?

It is to George W Bush's and America's eternal shame that Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, and Iran were not nuked into a glass-covered parking lot on Sept 12, 2001. Even our "cowboy" was/is a panty-waste.

I may be the luckiest guy in the world - I am in love with two countries, America and Israel. They are founded with same idealism. They share a common core value that supersedes all others - that human rights are G-d given and that no one has the right to interfere in another's faith.

I am not speaking about the current American administration whose actions and values speak of absolutism and tyranny. I am speaking about the American people. Those same people whose husbands, wives, sons and daughters, fathers and children ran into two burning building to save lives at the risk of their own. There is no stopping a country whose children are so brave.

And here in Jerusalem we are are also fighting and winning. In the greatest comeback in human history the Jews have Israel. And there is no stopping a people who can come back from the types of calamities we have experienced.


I was born in NYC and also have the privilege to live in Jerusalem. Two of the worlds greatest cities run through my blood.

The common enemy of both my countries will wind up in the trash heap of history, discarded for its barbarism and death worship.

We will not be defeated.

For all his faults, FDR understood that you had to stomp a mudhole in your opponents @$$ such that he never, ever, *EVER* entertained any notions of ultimate victory. All our concern about surgically targeted violence so as to reduce 'collateral damage' absolutely misses that the point of the exercise is to instill in the mind of your opponent the fact that we will destroy them, at whatever cost, to any and all that they hold dear.

Nuke Mecca, Medina, and every population center in Iran > 10k in population. And then announce to all and sundry, that if you even look at us cross-eyed, we'll do the same to every islamic center >10k in population, worldwide. And then, stand ready to do, just that.

I am very concerned that those who are connected with terrorists are able to twist our constitution to allow them to promote their ideas and their law. Various trials of known terrorists have made a mockery of our judicial system while true patriots suffer, Whoever said we will be defeated from within was correct and it's happening now.

"we have a president with an Islamic background whose middle name is “Hussein,”"

This is nuts.

Are not both of those statements true?

Remember when the Black Hawk went down in Somalia when Clinton was prez? He refused to send help or retaliate in any way. The Democrats are scared of any kind of conflict and the Middle East knows it. The fiasco called Vietnam, the Demos were in charge and they really screwed that one up. I think sense then they are afraid of showing their undies to the world if they get knocked on their butts for fighting back! Obama is probably the worse prez to start, stop, or get involved with any problems, conflicts, etc . The other country's do not trust him and the American people will not stand behind his looney butt. Benghazi occurred right before he was put back in office! What does that tell the world?

When I look back at "conservatism" dismal failure because of a media war waged against it ever since the 50s and before that; when I look back and see the blood shed of hundreds of millions by governments in the 20th century and now am ask to review just as much as the 21st century has lived, Humanity is as barbaric as it ever has been. I think Hobbes is wrong, people are not going to destroy each other, government is the leviathan which will eat us all.

Unfortunately, conservatism is often equated with many of the far right ideas about religion and many people will never accept that.

What would have been the outcome if Mecca and Medina were taken off by two small nuclear warheads and the American President would have given the leaders of the Arab world 48 hours to bring Osama's head in a basket, under penalty of blowing one Muslim capital every day that said basket delayed in reaching the nearest American post?

That is what Vespasian would have done.

"Now ask yourself: who’s winning the war on America that began twelve years ago today?"

This from my daughter's homeschool curriculum answers your question:

"A civilization is a nation or people that share a common culture, common laws, a common economy, and typically a common faith or religion."

This says it all.

"Who's winning"

Well, on the home front, we're losing. A good measure of our forthcoming defeat is in Europe. Malmo is lost, and Birmingham is almost totally gone to the Moslems. The population in France is already well over 10% Moslem now, and 170 adroissements around Paris are now no-go zones for the police there.

As for America, we're importing Moslem immigrants every day, and they're outbreeding the Infidel girls by a wide margin, which will have a large effect in a few decades just as it already has in Eurabia. They call it Demographic Jihad.

I know this from two execs in healthcare billing for large inner city hospitals: successful Moslem cab drivers take second, third and fourth wives, as is allowed by Islamic law. They're called "mosque wives" because bigamy is illegal by American law, but that law is only enforced on Mormons. (The first wife is called a "county wife" because they're legally married with a county marriage license.)

When the mosque wives bear children, the mosque wives sign up for AFDC as if they're single parents. All the wives and many children live in Section 8 subsidized townhouses, and receive free healthcare.

The Moslems are winning.

From the viewpoint of many Americans the question is not who is winning but "What war?" A battle with only one side engaged is not war but slaughter. However it became apparent soon after 9-11 that there never needs to be another attack on this nation because the terrorists have already won. And they continue to win every time we are forced to take off our shoes to get onto an airplane. They win every time we have our possesions and persons searched to enter a public building. They win every time we check our voice to state an obvious truth in fear that we will be labeled intolerant or bigoted. As a friend of mine stated not to long ago "I'm sure glad I'm in the checkout line and won't see how this all plays out." I wonder how it will play out in the end?
