Never Again? Nazism on the rise in Europe! (Video)

American Jews, particularly those self-flagellating ones who feel guilt due to any number of factors and reasons, need to wake-up and smell the rising hatred that's becoming increasingly overt after simmering just below the surface for some time!

After the Holocaust a phrase among my faith became popular, invoked to say that the horrors of Nazi Germany would never be allowed to ever occur again!

Simply the phrase was NEVER AGAIN!

As the most sacred day of the Jewish year Yom Kippur fast approaches, this short video will serve as a reminder that if we ignore history we are doomed to repeat it!

The subject is the rise of the Neo-Nazis movement in Europe but, in addition, liberal Jews also seem to be allowing themselves to be ignorant to the incredible danger of Islamic extremism that is highlighted by this disastrous nuclear deal with Iran!

Obama's impotence emboldens Russia in Syria!

People and countries learn by observing leaders, not by listening to them!

Following his empty rhetoric concerning the Syria redline, his impotence in dealing with the Russian invasion of Ukraine and complete capitulation to Iran, this is a lesson that Barack Obama has either failed to learn or has no interest in learning.

And certainly this has not gone unnoticed by Vladimir Putin who recognizes weakness when he sees it in an American president!

Empty Rhetoric = Foreign Policy Failure

From the left-leaning New York Times, this is its analysis of the Obama administrations flipflop over Russia's recent foray into Syria that even this media cheerleader for Obama can't sugarcoat!

'...the Obama administration reached out to Moscow on Friday to try to coordinate actions in the war zone and avoid an accidental escalation of one of the world’s most volatile conflicts.

The diplomatic initiative amounted to a pivot for the Obama administration, which just two weeks ago delivered a stern warning to the Kremlin that its military buildup in Syria risked an escalation of the civil war there or even an inadvertent confrontation with the United States. Last week, President Obama condemned Russia’s move as a “strategy that’s doomed to failure.”

But the White House seemed to acknowledge that the Kremlin had effectively changed the calculus in Syria in a way that would not be soon reversed despite vigorous American objections...'

CNN sets the trap, GOP debaters fall in!

CNN, one of the many mainstream media bastions of liberalism, held a debate last night that seemed to do more harm than good for the GOP brand!

For all intents and purposes the viewers who tuned in last night to the CNN Republican Party Presidential Debate likely fell into four distinct categories.
  1. GOP voters, sure about their candidate of choice, who wanted to see how Donald Trump was going to behave and the way in which his opponents would react,
  2. GOP voters still unsure of who they will back, that wanted to try and find some clarity through substantive questions from the moderators and the answers from the candidates,
  3. Independent voters that could go either Democrat or Republican and who needed a debate to see and hear the potential candidates thoughts and ideas and to observe their demeanor,
  4. Democrats that will vote Democrat and who tuned in for the Donald Trump Show, hoping that fireworks would ensue and the GOP would be embarrassed.
And for the record, as a GOP voter, I was embarrassed (although to be fair there absolutely were some positive exchanges mostly initiated by Carly Fiorina)!

First, as I tweeted only minutes into the debate, I was embarrassed that CNN would set a trap for the GOP by establishing the type of Q&A and split-screen format that to my mind was designed for only one purpose...to make the candidates look like childish fools.

And secondly I was embarrassed that with Trump on the stage leading the way, the GOP bought-in and for the most part didn't disappoint.
For those who may have missed the show you had...
  •  A 'substantive' question about Trump comments concerning Carly Fiorina's appearance, 
  • Trump immediately questioning (unsolicited) why Rand Paul was included in the debate along with comments about Paul's appearance, 
  • Bush and Trump bickering over comments one made about the others wife,
  •  Jake Tapper asking the candidates to describe themselves with a word or a phrase and so on. 
In other words it seemed as if the format was in no way designed to let the American public know who these candidates were and what they thought about critical issues, but rather for theater!

Or maybe, just maybe, the format was also specifically designed to do what the mainstream media often does.

Act as an unofficial subsidiary of the Democrat Party, deliberately establishing a format they knew would create a circus-like atmosphere that would make presidential candidates look non-presidential!

In summary, concerning the critical #3 voters mentioned above, this debate very likely could have had the effect of pushing them away.

The only saving grace is that the choices on the Democrat side are between a self-avowed socialist and a woman who could likely be indicted before she even receives the nomination!

Obama's Master Plan: Because No President Could Be This Bad By Accident! (List)

What Has America Accomplished After Two-Terms Of A Barack Obama Presidency?

  • The Exponential Growth of ISIS And Related Terrorist Organizations, 
  • The Iran Nuclear Deal,
  • The Middle East In Shambles, 
  • The Syrian Refugee Crisis,
  • Resumption Of The Cold War With Russia,
  • The Intentional Collapsing Of Iraq,
  • The Breakdown In Relations With Our Friends While Fostering New Relationships With Our Enemies,
  • An Open US/Mexico Border Through Which The Real Potential Exists That Terrorists Have Already Entered The Country,
  • The Gutting Of The US Military, 
  • The Minimization Or Complete Ignoring Of ISIS Atrocities, 
  • Splintering Of The United States Along Racial Lines And The Fostering Of A Hatred And Distrust Of Cops Culminating in the #BlackLivesMatter Movement, 
  • Expansion Of US Debt To The Point Of Choking The Global Economy While Said Debt Has Done Little To Greatly Improve The US economy, 
  • The Complete Degradation Of Our System Of Government and so on and so on!

If one was to take a step back and objectively examine where the world finds itself today after only two-terms of an Obama presidency, logical thinking would say that all of this must in some way have been planned!

That the possibility at least exists that Barack Obama is the Manchurian President who has systematically and methodically tried to bring the US to its knees and now, with tens of thousands of non-vetted  Syrian refugees about to arrive here, may be getting closer to his endgame!

Is this just paranoia, the ranting of a madman or conspiracy theory nonsense?

Perhaps, but if you honestly take Barack Obama's full body of work as President into account and consider for one second that no one can be so consistently wrong in every single decision that he has made, you too might start to wonder!

Remember that even a broken clock is right two times a day and yet this President has basically been wrong every step of the way for over six years!

Excessive household debt has made a comeback! (Study)

According to a study conducted by Card Hub, U.S. household debt in the form of credit cards has spiked higher in 2015!
Is this spike in leverage a sign of consumer confidence with households taking on debt due to an optimistic vision of their personal financial fortunes going forward?
Or is the 2015 2nd quarter credit card balance increase of $32.1 billion, after a $35 billion balance pay-down in the 1st quarter, more of a troubling sign that personal finances are being stretched thin and that debt is the only way for Americans to make ends meet?
