The “Reagan Doctrine” was supporting freedom fighters around the world and rolling back the Soviet empire. The “Obama Doctrine” is pretending to fight foreign threats while sounding or looking tough, but actually doing nothing of substance to turn back aggression.
Even the liberal Washington Post sees the dangers ahead.
“For the sake of the cameras, President Obama assured Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko at a White House meeting Thursday that ‘not only do we support Ukraine’s sovereignty and independence in words, but we’ve also been supporting it in deeds.’ If only that were true,” the paper noted in an editorial. “The reality is that the beleaguered Ukrainian leader left Washington backed by considerable rhetoric from the Obama administration but little with which he can turn back the continuing Russian aggression against his country.” The paper urged Congress to swiftly approve military aid for Ukraine.
The Post was essentially accusing Obama of lying.
Making a sharp break with the Reagan approach, Obama was recently quoted at a fundraiser as saying that since “we do very little trade with Ukraine and, geopolitically…what happens in Ukraine doesn’t pose a direct threat to us.”
The White House posted these extraordinary remarks as well, stating they were delivered at a “private residence” in Baltimore.
The New York Times reported that the fundraiser’s host was Howard E. Friedman, former president of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), which describes itself as “America’s Pro-Israel Lobby.” Guests reportedly paid up to $32,400 to attend the event.
Friedman is described as a leading supporter of Jewish political causes and has given nearly $100,000 in contributions, mostly to Democrats, since 2009.
Obama vowed to defeat the Islamic State “but did not mention Iran or the Middle East peace process” during the event, a report on a Jewish website noted.
The Times added, “In introducing Mr. Obama, Mr. Friedman described a nuclear-armed Iran as the No. 1 danger in the world.” In fact, a nuclear-armed Iran would be able to acquire those nuclear arms because of its support from Russia, already a nuclear-armed country.
The short-sightedness of some supporters of Israel regarding Russia is astounding.
As we have pointed out, the Ayatollah of Iran, Ali Khamenei, was “educated” at the KGB’s Patrice Lumumba University in Moscow. This means he is under Russian influence, if not an agent.
AIPAC itself acknowledges the link between Iran and Russia.
Back in 2006, AIPAC ran an item headlined, “Russia Blocking Efforts to Curtail Iranian Threat.” In 2008, it highlighted a Senate letter opposing U.S.-Russia nuclear cooperation because of Russian trade with Iran in strategic areas. In 2011, AIPAC reported that Senator Dan Coats (R-IN) “noted the need for strong pressure on Russia and China to persuade them to participate in the sanctions efforts.”
But there’s much more to it.
We have pointed out that Putin adviser Aleksandr Dugin has explained in the article, “Eurasianism, Iran, and Russia’s Foreign Policy,” that a “strategic alliance” exists between Iran and Russia. He discusses how Russia “will not cease its efforts to reduce sanctions against Iran.”
In a new book, Back from the Dead: The Return of the Evil Empire, former KGB officer Konstantin Preobrazhensky (with whom I was co-author) says that the ideology of Eurasianism was developed by Soviet intelligence in the 1920s and is now being used to justify Russian aggression as well as the alliance with Iran.
He reports, “The actual organizer of its recent growth is Colonel Peter Suslov, officer of the SVR. In the 1990s, Dugin’s seminars were attended by the high-positioned Russian intelligence officer, Sergei Ivanov, future Russian Minister of Defense and the current Chief of Staff Presidential Administration of Russia. By the way, he is my former classmate at the KGB school in Minsk in 1977. And he is also a very close friend of Putin. Sergei Ivanov is said to be the leading promoter of rapprochement with Iran in the military sphere—in spite of the USA. But where we see Ivanov, we should see Putin. In fact, Sergei Ivanov is nothing but Putin’s shadow. If he visited the Eurasia seminars, it means that Putin admires the Eurasia Movement too. After Putin’s coming to power, the Eurasia Movement received the Kremlin’s support. The SVR, Russian Foreign Intelligence Service, and GRU, military intelligence, have assisted Aleksandr Dugin in working out the long-term joint project of creating the Eurasian block. The anti-American partnership of Russia and Iran is playing the key role there.”
In a column titled, “The poison in the Kremlin,” Oliver Kamm writes in the Jewish Chronicle that “Jews have a compelling, pragmatic interest as well as a concern for justice in what’s happening in Ukraine.” He says the resurgence of anti-Semitism in Europe is not only connected with Gaza and the tragic Israeli-Palestinian conflict but traces back to Russia. He even cites the Nazi roots of Dugin’s Eurasian scheme.
Yet, Putin’s clever propagandists insist the Nazis and the fascists are on the side of Ukraine.
He notes that “the Kremlin has lied on the international stage. Though the far right polled only two percent of the vote in Ukraine’s presidential election, the country’s government is routinely castigated by Putin and his allies as neo-Nazi. It’s an Orwellian tactic. The Russian invasion is simultaneously denied and depicted as defensive. The principle of linguistic homogeneity is invented to ‘justify’ Russian annexation of Crimea, which is like saying Westminster has a justified claim to Massachusetts because most of its inhabitants speak English. The greatest doublethink of all, echoing the language of the Soviet era, is to present Russia’s territorial aggrandizement as a blow against fascism.”
In his speech to the U.S. Congress, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said, “Just like Israel, Ukraine has the right to defend her territory—and it will do so, with all the courage of her heart and dedication of her soul! I urge America to help us and to rise and be equal to its natural and manifest role—I urge America to lead the way!”
But Obama’s America offers no heavy weapons to Ukraine.
Poroshenko concluded his address, saying, “‘Live free!’—must be the message Ukraine and America send to the world, while standing together in this time of enormous challenge.”
As noted by Myroslaw Smorodsky, Communications Director of the Ukrainian American Bar Association, by failing to give Ukrainians the necessary means to defend themselves, the response from the Obama administration seemed to be, “Do the best you can!”
Noting Obama’s reference to the U.S. doing very little trade with Ukraine and that what happens to Ukraine doesn’t pose a direct threat to America, Smorodsky commented, “In essence, money trumps all! Is that what ‘live free or die’ means? Is that one of the founding principles of our democratic society?”
“In the long run,” he warned, “the present American myopic foreign policy towards Ukraine will unwittingly create a conflagration on the European continent in which our children or grandchildren will be putting their ‘boots on the ground.’”
Poroshenko warned Congress about Putin’s Russia: “The imperialistic mindset is still there. Nostalgia for the Soviet Union and the dismissal of the settlement that ended the Cold War has been cultivating revisionist instincts.”
He added, “In 2008, Russian troops occupied Abkhazia and South Ossetia. Now they have invaded Ukraine. The right to protect ethnic Russians, and even Russian speakers, can and already has become a reason to fan the flames of war. Besides Ukraine, the Russian speakers reside in Moldova, Georgia, Kazakhstan, the Baltic States, Poland, Romania, Bulgaria. Moldova, Georgia, Ukraine—what happens next?”
Once Ukraine is finished as an independent and sovereign nation, can Israel be far behind?
On Sunday’s “60 Minutes,” Obama’s former CIA director and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta admitted that Obama was slow to recognize the threat posed by the Islamic State (ISIS) and that he withdrew troops from Iraq too quickly.
Now Obama tells his donors that he will destroy ISIS. Is there any reason to believe it’s not another lie?
And if he will lie in the face of the Ukrainian President at a White House meeting, why should we believe he is committed to the survival of Israel?
Hello and welcome to the Watcher’s Council’s new feature, ‘Weasel Of The Week’, where we award the golden plastic Weasel to a public figure who particularly deserves to be publicly slimed and mocked for his or her dastardly deeds during the week. Every Tuesday morning, tune in for the Weasel of the Week nominations and check back Thursday to see which Weasel gets the votes and walks off with the statuette of shame!
Here are this weeks’ nominees:
Senator Elizabeth Warren!
The Noisy Room: In a speaking event at Tufts University Monday, Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren told a “Holocaust refugee” that she thought it was “fair” to compare Israel’s treatment of Palestinians to the Nazis’ treatment of the Jews in the Holocaust. Warren also walked back her previous statement that Israel had the right to defend itself by saying that the Gazans do as well and that her ultimate goal is ending war and establishing a two-state solution. Is there a category for ‘fascist, anti-Semite weasel?’ Just sayin’.
‘Personality’ And Global Warming Activist Robert F.Kennedy Jr. !
Nice Deb: for getting a little too hot and bothered at PJTV’s Michelle Fields when she called him out
on his hypocrisy at the climate rally in New York City, Sunday.
Kennedy took great umbrage, waving his hands in front of her face, even grabbing at the young reporter’s mic at one point.
Pretty disgraceful behavior – even for a Kennedy.
Squeaker Speaker Of The House John ‘Mr. Flexy’ Boehner!
Virginia Right! : Sometimes the enemy of my enemy is my friend. But often, the enemy of my enemy is simply another enemy.
John Boehner led the House to pass the appropriations for Obama’s plan to arm and train “moderate” Syrian fighters, who are Muslims to fight other Muslims on behalf of America.
There is no way this turns out well for anyone but the “moderate” rebels who will soon turn the weapons on us, or hand them over to ISIS.
The Right Planet: Speaker John Boehner for attempting a rule change to squelch dissent among more conservative members of the GOP, who he refers to as “knuckleheads.” It sure would be nice to see folks like Boehner direct such vitriol at the Democrats, but apparently he’s too spent after going after his own.
The GOP “Establishment” Leadership!
Ask Marion : for passing the complete funding of Obamacare including funding Planned Parenthood and for distancing themselves and alienating the Republican base in a year that should be a wave election and risking loss of the House and Senate in the midterms.
Peter Gelb, Useful Idiot and Head of the NY Metropolitan Opera!
Well, there it is! Are these worthy weasels or what? Check back Thursday to see which Weasel walks off with the statuette of shame!
Make sure to tune in every Monday for the Watcher’s Forum.
And remember, every Wednesday, the Council has its weekly contest with the members nominating two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council.

T F Stern’s Rantings
Last weekend an opportunity to visit my folks presented itself with the help of some reasonable air fare. Mom and Dad are getting up in age and I’m no spring chicken so it made sense to fly out there and spend time with them. My father and I don’t talk much with his hearing being worse than mine; but we did fall asleep pretending to watch golf on his television together and it made us both happy.
Sunday morning we all went to dad’s Presbyterian Church where I was logged in as an official visitor. It was a chance for me to once again show respect for my father and observe his rituals and traditions even though we don’t see eye to eye on matters of religion; my having become an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormon) going on 36 years.
There’s no doubt that Presbyterians share, at least in part, a common belief in God, the Father, His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ and in the Holy Ghost as the congregation stood to recite the Apostle’s Creed. There was a visual text of the Creed presented on a large screen which permitted folks to read along; my having avoided the recitation as it included, “I believe in … the holy Catholic Church…” Out of respect for my father I stood quietly, dutifully if you will, until everyone was invited to sit back down.
The minister later talked about the old Presbyterian Hymnbook and the new one which replaced it; something which apparently caused quite a stir with some of the older members. During his remarks he asked the membership to write down their favorite hymns and pass this information along so he’d have a better idea of what his congregation wanted to hear.
I looked down at my shoes, suppressing any audible laugh that might escape as a wide grin crept across my face. An abstract thought came to me, “We Thank Thee Oh God for a Prophet”, or “High on the Mountain Top”…no; better to remain silent once more, they might not appreciate my warped sense of humor.
It was the 2nd Sunday of the month and this congregation had a worthy tradition of taking up a special collection for those standing in need. They were invited to empty the coins from their pockets as young children went from pew to pew with large tin cans, coins clinking as they hit the bottom.
In The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints we have a similar tradition, Fast and Testimony Sunday, usually the 1st Sunday of each month. We are asked to voluntarily give up two meals and donate the amount that would have been spent as a Fast Offering. It has been suggested we be generous, making the value of the missed meals greater than would have been spent rather than smaller in order to bless more of those in need.
It was an honor to accompany my folks to church, to worship God and acknowledge our Savior’s gift to mankind. Our differences in doctrine put aside; we worship the same God, the same Savior and the Holy Ghost in our own way. May the message of the gospel remain the focus of our lives is my prayer this day, in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
This article has been cross posted to The Moral Liberal, a publication whose banner reads, “Defending The Judeo-Christian Ethic, Limited Government, & The American Constitution”.
The news appeared recently in several media sources, that major think tanks in Washington DC are being funded by foreign governments. This is huge. But you may have missed it.
It was the NYTimes that broke the story, and I quote here (emphasis added):
“The agreement signed last year by the Norway Ministry of Foreign Affairs was explicit: For $5 million, Norway’s partner in Washington would push top officials at the White House, at the Treasury Department and in Congress to double spending on a United States foreign aid program.
“But the recipient of the cash was not one of the many Beltway lobbying firms that work every year on behalf of foreign governments.
“It was the Center for Global Development, a nonprofit research organization, or think tank, one of many such groups in Washington that lawmakers, government officials and the news media have long relied on to provide independent policy analysis and scholarship.
“More than a dozen prominent Washington research groups have received tens of millions of dollars from foreign governments in recent years while pushing United States government officials to adopt policies that often reflect the donors’ priorities, an investigation by The New York Times has found.
“The money is increasingly transforming the once-staid think-tank world into a muscular arm of foreign governments’ lobbying in Washington. And it has set off troubling questions about intellectual freedom: Some scholars say they have been pressured to reach conclusions friendly to the government financing the research.
“The think tanks do not disclose the terms of the agreements they have reached with foreign governments. And they have not registered with the United States government as representatives of the donor countries, an omission that appears, in some cases, to be a violation of federal law, according to several legal specialists who examined the agreements at the request of The Times.
“As a result, policy makers who rely on think tanks are often unaware of the role of foreign governments in funding the research.
“Joseph Sandler, a lawyer and expert on the statute that governs Americans lobbying for foreign governments, said the arrangements between the countries and think tanks ‘opened a whole new window into an aspect of the influence-buying in Washington that has not previously been exposed.’
“’It is particularly egregious because with a law firm or lobbying firm, you expect them to be an advocate,’ Mr. Sandler added. ‘Think tanks have this patina of academic neutrality and objectivity, and that is being compromised.’
The arrangements involve Washington’s most influential think tanks, including the Brookings Institution, the Center for Strategic and International Studies, and the Atlantic Council. Each is a major recipient of overseas funds, producing policy papers, hosting forums and organizing private briefings for senior United States government officials that typically align with the foreign governments’ agendas.”
This is a serious matter on several counts and should be of concern to every American citizen for a host of reasons, including the fact that these think tanks may be breaking the law but, to date, have not been prosecuted.
But it is of very specific concern to those who support Israel. For it has now been exposed that the Brookings Institution signed a four year agreement last year with Qatar that will provide Brookings with $14.8 million.
Qatar is pro-Muslim Brotherhood. As Daniel Pipes has written, it also “funneled hundreds of millions to Hamas-led Gaza and encouraged its rocket and tunnel assault on Israel.”
And Brookings? This is “where Martin Indyk serves as vice president and director of the Foreign Policy Program. Indyk worked for Secretary of State John Kerry from July 2013 to June 2014 as special envoy for Israeli-Palestinian negotiations…how could Indyk be expected to act in a neutral way?” (Emphasis added)
You may remember, when Israeli-PA negotiations fell apart, Indyk said it was Israel’s fault.
That Indyk is guilty of duplicity barely touches the surface of what might be said about him. His career should be totally down the tubes, but – given Washington DC realities – it won’t be.
Then, I want to share a level-headed and informed assessment of Mahmoud Abbas’s recent threats. You’ve heard much of this from me, but better still to hear it from an international lawyer.
Alan Baker – director of the Institute for Contemporary Affairs at the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs and director of the International Action Division of the Legal Forum for Israel – says, in his piece – “Is Abbas Serious?” – that (emphasis added):
“The Palestinian Authority leadership’s fixation on ‘internationalizing the conflict’ by ‘going back to the UN,’ joining various international conventions and taking Israeli political and military leaders to the International Criminal Court sounds dramatic and even threatening. But it involves a large degree of self-delusion…
“The latest ploy by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas for frightening the Israelis – going to the UN Security Council with a resolution demanding withdrawal by Israel from ‘Palestinian territory’ to ‘the 1967 borders’ within three years and threatening to go to the International Criminal Court if it isn’t passed – would appear to be no less misguided legally, no less self-deluding and fraught with non-sequiturs than previous abortive Palestinian UN forays.
“Despite all the annual politically generated UN resolutions, which do nothing more than represent the political opinions of the states voting for them, the territories of Judea and Samaria and the Gaza Strip have never legally or historically been declared to be ‘Palestinian.’ There has never been a sovereign Palestinian state, and no treaty, agreement, or binding resolution has ever determined that the territories belong to the Palestinians.
“To the contrary, even the Palestinians themselves agreed in the 1993-1995 Oslo Accords, guaranteed by the US, the EU, Russia, Norway, Egypt and Jordan and endorsed by the UN, that the permanent status of the territories would be determined in negotiations. To determine in advance that these territories are Palestinian is to prejudge an agreed-upon negotiating issue.
“Similarly, there is no such thing as the ‘1967 borders.’ The parties have agreed to negotiate ‘secure and recognized boundaries,’ as demanded by UN Security Council Resolution 242, and the question of ‘borders’ is also an agreed negotiating issue pursuant to the Oslo Accords…
“Moreover, Abbas’s ostensibly serious ammunition – his threat to go to the International Criminal Court (ICC) and have Israeli leaders and military officers tried for war crimes in the event that his Security Council ploy fails – appears almost certain to backfire.
“Even if the ICC prosecutor, as she has promised, accepts a Palestinian request for standing in the Court…that, in and of itself, cannot guarantee that Abbas and his associates will be able to advance any serious criminal claims against Israeli political or military leaders.
“This is because of the Court’s complex evidentiary rules, specifically the rule of ‘complementarity,’ which prevents the Court’s exercising its jurisdiction if the case in question is already subject to investigation and potential juridical process by the nation state of the accused…Thus it is highly unlikely that any such attempt to bring Israeli leaders to trial would succeed.
“Even more noteworthy is the likelihood that the Palestinian leadership, in giving the Court jurisdiction over the territories, including the Gaza Strip, would be placing itself – as well as senior Hamas commanders and tacticians – at the mercy of anyone who chooses to initiate claims against them for serious war crimes and terrorism.”
You may wish to save this information, and share it.
Hasan Khreisha, the second-deputy speaker of the Palestinian parliament, has said that Abbas is holding off on joining the ICC in order to press charges against Israel. This, in spite of encouragement from several Palestinian Arab parties for him to do so.
Says Khriesa, this is because Abbas prefers to push forward a bid for new peace talks. Sounds nice. But my guess is that Abbas knows exactly what Alan Baker has written: that attempts to have Israelis prosecuted in the ICC are likely to fail. So he talks the talk and then balks at moving ahead. The Abbas M.O.
”Israel believes Syria has retained caches of combat-ready chemical weapons after giving up raw materials used to produce such munitions under pressure from foreign powers, a senior Israeli official said on Thursday.
”Summarizing Israeli intelligence estimates that were previously not disclosed to avoid undermining the Syrians’ surrender of their declared chemical arsenal, the official said they had kept some missile warheads, air-dropped bombs and rocket-propelled grenades primed with toxins like sarin.
“’There is, to my mind, still in the hands of Syria a significant residual capability … that could be used in certain circumstances and could be potentially very serious,’ the official told Reuters on condition of anonymity.”
Surprising? Not at all. It would have been more surprising if a vicious and duplicitous Assad really had surrendered everything. There are numerous lessons to be learned here.
There is little concern here in Israel that Assad would use such weapons against us because of Israeli deterrence power: Said one Israeli official, this would not be a game changer for Assad, it would be a “game-ender.” He is more likely to use these chemicals in his civil war.
But there is concern about what would happen if radical rebels were to get their hands on this material.
No end of subjects to write about. Yet my time is limited in these days leading up to Rosh Hashana. I hope to do one more posting before the holiday. Some of the subjects that may merit serious attention:
 We have a very serious problem with increasing Arab violence here in Jerusalem. I want to emphasize the import of this and would like to look at the issue in some detail. This is with regard to the possibility of a third intifada. But even more so, with regard to the absolute need for our government – state and municipal – to be tough if we are serious about our own sovereignty in the land. This is not something to be taken lightly. The Arabs, for the most part with Jerusalem residency, must be handled with with a very strong hand.
 There is much political turmoil in Israel right now, including unrest within Likud. Gideon Sa’ar – who headed the Ministry of Interior – has resigned from the government, and this was a political bombshell. There is much speculation as to where he is going. Where Likud is going. Where Netanyahu is going. And whether Naftali Bennett – head of Habyit Hayehudi – can succeed in ways he hopes to. There is unrest inside of his party as well.
 There is also much political turmoil within the Palestinian Arab world, with tensions growing between Fatah and Hamas.
 And…on Tuesday indirect ceasefire talks between Israel and Hamas are to begin in Cairo.

Some say a weekend is for recovering from the work week. Others, that Monday is for recuperating from the weekend. This Gulag entry, egress or not, is for all who are seek reconciliation.
Speaking of weekends, I hear there was some marching going on last one, in New York City. There were pictures in Twitter of the trash they left behind. Something about green, but where I used to live in Chicago they paraded in March with that hue.
For more, read!

Almost 400,000 Soldiers of Chaos descended on New York City over the weekend to ostensibly demand the US do something about climate change. What a load of bull crap. And someone (I hope) is checking those attendance numbers, because as we all know, these jack wagons literally aren’t capable of telling the truth. Behold the brown green shirts who are Marxists, Communists, Socialists, Progressives, Islamists, radicals… They all want to transform America into some form or other of a hellish tyranny that benefits a few and suppresses the rest. They call themselves the People’s Climate March, but they are nothing more than commies wearing green as an excuse.
The march was orchestrated to push the UN Climate Summit on Sept. 23. Every radical and moonbat on the planet was there it seems. Of course, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon took part in the two-mile march through the streets of Manhattan, along with musician Sting and actors Leonardo di Caprio and Mark Ruffalo. Former vice president Al Gore and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio were also goosestepping to the fascist tune of the global elite — hell, they’re part of them. The New York event was the largest of 2,646 events taking place in 156 countries, according to organizers (if you can believe lying liars).
Oh, and the commies were out en force:
“We said it would take everyone to change everything — and everyone showed up,” said Eddie Bautista, executive director of the New York City Environmental Justice Alliance, in a statement.
Of course our ‘selfie President’ will attend the UN conference. Although there is incontrovertible proof that there is no global warming and this global climate change garbage is nothing but an attempt to further communism and force subjugation on the masses, these evil asshats just keep on trying to breathe new life into this dead horse. They just won’t stop and evidently they have found enough useful idiots to make propaganda globally and loudly. Maybe it’s a new union for the evil out there organizing on earth for those stopping over on their way to hell. There won’t be much green there, but oh, the weather is to fry for!
So, Obama and his minions presented last week, in preparation for the Climate Summit, the US outline for its plan that applies to a possible global climate agreement. The Summit is seen as a key milestone on the path to an agreement. Yeah… not that Americans will have any say or anything. You can count on that – like it or lump it will be Obama’s edict. Obey if you know what is good for you, or else.
The usual limited subset of the craven, lap dog media are promoting this ad nauseum. The New York Times is elated and demanding change right now, damn it! What a bunch of illiterate, self-loving, sycophants. I won’t even quote them as it was lie after lie after lie in their propaganda spread. Wretch worthy.
What was of note, which the NYT called diversity, was the vast array of nut jobs and radicals that attended the event. Every hate-filled freak that could slither there on their belly showed up for the party. Picture a minaret of an inflatable mosque, floating serenely next to Noah’s Ark on West 58th Street. Then you had Capuchin Franciscan monks decked out in flowing brown robes and nuns marching to the Marxist tune of ideologies that are totally incompatible with Christianity and most other religions. But they snuggled right up to those flying a pagan flag and beating a drum. I’m sure the Satanists and Anarchists were there too. At Columbus Circle, there were bare-breasted women and people with dreadlocks and handmade clothing. There were Muslim women wearing hijabs and groups of older women with signs proclaiming they were “Grandmas Against Global Warming” and that “Gray Is Green.” Some of these people need serious, long-term care and help. Really.
This is theater for the very, very stupid. The majority of Americans know this and just try to ignore it. The problem is that these nincompoops have managed to insert themselves into positions of power and what they do directly effects all of us in every area of our lives. John Kerry is in the thick of it, working tirelessly to destroy America, tax us to death and force us into a dictatorship. He should have stayed in Vietnam. Just sayin’.
The march was replete with celebrities. Twitchy rightly mocked Leonardo DeCaprio. A furry faced DeCaprio flew in on his private jet just for the occasion:
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. also lost it at the March when confronted by PJ Media’s Michelle Fields about being a hypocrite. Truth hurts.
Sadly, we can’t just afford to laugh off these loons. Their agenda is a massive wealth transfer. 47 different groups there had ‘justice’ in their names. Justice and equality have nothing to do with this. It’s straight up communism. It’s about taking from those who have earned it and giving it to everyone else – forcibly.
William Teach put it superbly when he said that Sunday’s NYC Climate March is like totally anti-establishment, man. Totally. Although almost 400,000 protestors showed for Sunday’s festivities, guess who didn’t? Most of the media. The NY Times, LA Times, Washington Post, CBS News, ABC News, Chicago Post, Miami Herald, USA Today and a whole slew of NY papers were missing in action. You know why? Because this is lame, trite propaganda and Americans are bored and pissed by it. Anti-establishment unless of course you count that all of these groups and individuals are intricately linked to the Democrat Party… such as SEIU, the Teamsters, League Of Women Voters, College Democrats of Mass, CWA, Audubon Society, National Lawyers Guild, NOW, tons of unions, including teacher’s unions, and a whole raft of others, all Left leaning. Then there’s the tried and true Socialist and Communist groups involved, plus CAIR, Code Pink, Common Dreams, World Can’t Wait, MoveOn.org and all the other Democrat voting wackadoodle groups one would expect as Teach aptly stated in his article.
One moonbat had a sticker that said, “Capitalism is destroying the planet… We need revolution, nothing less.” Printed on green, which of course, is the new red. Other activists were chanting, “F*ck the police!” Not sure what that has to do with climate change, but it sure plays into the chaos theory. And in a “I don’t think this word means what you think it means” moment, individuals with the socialist newspaper “The Militant” were selling newspapers to attendees, while Occupy Wall Street members asked for “donations” in exchange for shirts. So, you are anti-capitalist, but only when it suits you? Yep, the very definition of hypocrisy.
Not to be left out, members of the Socialists Workers Party also manned a table, passing out flyers attempting to make “the case for ecosocialism.” You say tomato, I say communism. Meh.
Welcome to Climate Week in the rotten Big Apple, featuring celebrities, CEOs and climatologists. The Soldiers of Chaos march forward in America to bring devastating change upon us.
