Questions Arising From The Weekend
What is going on here with all the pro Hamas demonstrations?
Does the world not know that it was Hamas who attacked and slaughtered innocents on Oct. 7th?
What is Israel supposed to do, live with people willing to cut babies from the womb and the heads off of those born in their midst?
If it’s truly a small number in the U.S. supporting Hamas, then who is funding them and the demonstrations?
Who is paying for the signs and organization?
Is it true George Soros gave the organizations $14 million dollars?
Why? His family was Holocaust survivors.
This is the same George Soros who has funded the “woke” prosecutors gave left wing groups money?
Are we really hearing our fellow Jewish citizens saying that they don’t feel safe on campus or in America today?
Does the passing of the Greatest Generation mean we forgot the 1930’s?
Is the meaning of “Never Again” forgotten?
Where is the U.S. elective leadership here standing up for right and speaking out?
The President was at his Delaware beach home from Friday night until this morning.
Is that what we want?
Hamas has hidden many weapons under hospitals, schools and mosques.
Who does that, putting their most vulnerable citizens at risk?
Would you approve of America doing that?
If the answer is no, then you cannot condemn Israel for their actions.
Hamas fighters slip above and below ground, blending with civilians in schools, hospitals and mosques.
Israel has announced where they are going to attack, asking citizens to move away.
Did Hamas or the other terrorist networks ever do that?
Did they warn the citizens of Israel on Oct. 7th? Did the terrorists warn our citizens in the World Trade Center?
Now the President and administration want to tie Israeli funding to Ukraine and “border” funding.
Of his $100 billion request, over $60 billion is for Ukraine.
The border is most of the rest, but not to protect the crossing, it is to process the crossers faster.
Do we really know who is coming across that border? What country has no border control?
They know this will be an issue and the House is going to take up Israeli funding separately.
I support the House move.
Even with that some are saying they will vote “no”. Here’s Rep. Marjorie Greene.
“I will be voting NO on all funding packages for the Ukraine war (as I have from the beginning) and now the Israel war. We have had over 10 MILLION people illegally cross our border since Biden took office and we are over $33 TRILLION dollars in debt with many major problems afflicting Americans. The United States government needs to focus on spending American’s hard earned tax dollars on our own country and needs to serve the American people NOT the rest of the world. I voted YES on both resolutions condemning the attack on Ukraine and the attack on Israel however I will continue to vote NO on spending American’s hard earned tax dollars to fund wars defending foreign country’s borders while our own border is overrun and our own national security is at risk.”
A Political Note
Former VP Mike Pence withdrew from the Republican primary. A good and decent man, who did what he thought was right on Jan. 6th. Here’s what he said:
“This is not my time. We always knew this would be an uphill battle but I have no regrets. The only thing that would have been harder than coming up short would have been if we’d never tried at all.”
How did Donald Trump react to a man he has chastised for not supporting his stolen election claim and some of his supporters think should be strung up?
“People are leaving [the race] now, and they’re all endorsing me. I don’t know about Mike Pence. He should endorse me. You know why? Because I had a great successful presidency, and he was the vice president, he should endorse me. I chose him, made him vice president. But… people in politics can be very disloyal. I’ve never seen anything like it.”
That from the man who I question his loyalty to people once they leave him.
Just to be sure, political hypocrisy exists on both sides. Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries is attacking new Speaker Johnson as an election denier.
Guess who made these statements:
“The more we learn about the 2016 election the more ILLEGITIMATE it becomes.”
“With [the] legitimacy of Trump’s presidential election in doubt, his lifetime appt. to Supreme Court can wait.”
Yes, it was Jeffries himself. His predecessor, Nancy Pelosi said:
“Our election was hijacked. There is no question. Congress has a duty to #ProtectOurDemocracy & #FollowTheFacts.”
There’s a long list, but why let facts get in the way of having your MSM wing support you?
