As we enter the Easter and Passover season some Christian sects will once again bring up the old hatreds that the Jewish people killed Jesus, when nothing could be further from the truth. Before you discount this, please read what I have to say.
Simply, the Jews did NOT kill Jesus as it was the Romans that had him crucified and caused his mortal death. Pope Benedict XVI completely absolved and publicly apologized for wrongly charging the Jews with the death of Jesus, and most contemporary Christian theologians acknowledge that the Jews could NOT possibly have influenced the all-powerful Romans into killing Jesus.
The lie that the Jews had Jesus put to death or had any part in his death has been spread ever since the time of the Romans, and has caused more harm to the Jewish people over the centuries than almost anything else, and still does so by anti-Semitic bigots who continue to perpetrate this lie.

Former Justice John Paul Stevens would like to change the Second Amendment.
Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens thinks the Second Amendment should be changed and he says so in the pages of his new book, an excerpt of which was published by the Washington Post, igniting a new debate about gun rights.
Justice Stevens would like to add five words to the amendment: “when serving in the militia,” right after “shall not be infringed.”
It is almost as though the retired jurist is contending that, because he did not care for the 5-4 ruling in the Heller case that affirmed the Second Amendment protects an individual right to have a firearm, he now wants to change the constitution. Continue reading →
After a visit to Amsterdam to attend a G7 meeting to discuss how to punish Vladimir Putin for his ‘supposed’ nationalistic annexing of Crimea, and after attending a two-day Nuclear Security Summit in the Hague, Barack HUSSEIN Obama then visited Brussels (a city whose population is a shocking 40% muslim…guess he felt right at home there) where he cost the city $10.4 million for the additional 350 security people needed to keep him safe. And he brought with him an entourage of 900 people and three cargo planes carrying 45 vehicles…and God only knows how much that cost we taxpayers…all to stand before the EU and NATO summits to say that “Our Constitution is outdated and international law is supreme.”
And knowing how much Obama loves his pen and phone, if he had his way he would render null and void the entire Constitution by Executive Order and do so in the blink of an eye.
In recent years, many conservatives have blamed RINOs – Republicans in name only – for the recent Republican failures at the polls as well as for the failure of the GOP to stop the explosive growth in government. The use of RINOs as a target and scapegoat is not new and predates the advent of the Tea Party. But are RINOs really to blame for Republican Party’s woes and would the party be better off if RINOs were kicked out?
In 2005, four years before Barack Obama became president and sparked the Tea Party movement, Human Events published a list of that year’s top ten most wanted RINOs. Where are these RINOs today? Have they been replaced by Tea Party inspired conservatives or are they still subverting the Republican Party from within?
“Any discussion about the future of Ukraine must include the legitimate government of Ukraine. In 2014, we are well beyond the days when borders can be redrawn over the heads of democratic leaders.” – Barack HUSSEIN Obama
Bloviations…bloviations and NOTHING more for words are cheap when NOT backed up by action…military action…period.
And while Obama bloviates on and on it appears, at least on the surface, that Crimea does want to become part of Russia, with Russia saying it would welcome Crimea with open arms, especially since 60% of Crimea’s population are ethnic Russians. But Ukraine and the U.S. are poo-pooing the fact that on March 16th, Crimea will hold a referendum on whether to join Russia or remain part of Ukraine, with a ballot in Russian, Ukrainian, and Crimean Tatar that reads in part, “Are you for the reaffirmation of the constitution of the Crimean Republic of 1992 and for Crimea’s status as part of Ukraine?”

In early May 1865, the Confederacy was in its last throes. Robert E. Lee had surrendered to Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox Courthouse, Virginia a month earlier. According to the History of Irwin County, Confederate president Jefferson Davis, along with his family and a party of escorts, held the Confederacy’s last cabinet meeting at the home of Robert Toombs in Washington, Ga. It was decided that Davis and his family should make for a port where they could sail for safety in England. From Washington, the group moved southwest, eventually making camp just north of Irwinville, Ga.
Unbeknownst to the Davis and his party, the group was being trailed by members of the First Wisconsin and Fourth Michigan cavalry regiments of the Union army. The Yankees split into two groups, one reaching Irwinville ahead of Davis and doubling back while the other followed the Confederates.
“Israel will give 1/3 of its land to the Arabs, when America gives 1/3 of its land back to the Indians.”
Former Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin to then-President Jimmy Carter
NO doubt about it…Barack HUSSEIN Obama and John Kerry are traitors…traitors to America and traitors to Israel. And while we all know how Obama feels about Israel…NO need to state the obvious concerning his lies, his backstabbing, his siding with those out to wipe Israel off the map…now Israel has been dealt an added headache what with John Kerry being thrown into the mix of lies and deceit concerning and directed towards the Jewish state.

Then Sen. Obama receives a briefing on Iraq from Gen. David Petraeus in 2008. (DOD)
Iraq’s slide back into chaos has its roots in 2011 when the last U.S. soldiers left the country. The Obama Administration and the government of Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki had been engaged in months of negotiations in an attempt to reach a new status of forces agreement that would allow American soldiers to remain in Iraq to help support government forces. (The Bush Administration had signed a status of forces agreement that required U.S. combat troops to leave Iraq by Dec. 31, 2011.) When these talks failed, the stage was set for President Obama to fulfill his campaign promise to remove U.S. forces and end the war in Iraq.
Unfortunately, as pointed out by the Atlanta Conservative Examiner, it was much easier to remove U.S. troops than to end the war. President Obama’s assumption was that American forces were the cause of the fighting in Iraq and that if American forces were removed, the war would end. That turned out not to be the case, partly because of Iran.
