    Our borders are unfenced, Gunny. The nearest land to us is Australia which is about 1500 US miles away. That’s about the distance from New York to Miami and half way back again.

    That’s quite a swim from Australia – let alone Mexico. Come to think of it, I haven’t met any Mexicans in NZ yet…

    Sorry about the delayed response. I’m having difficulty fitting my various obligations into my day at the moment – which is a good thing for our little family ship but bad for keeping up with world affairs…

    Has anybody heard about what’s happening with the Blaze boot camp lately?

    Lol !

    That’s a hoot. Relax guys. MSN NZ is New Zealand’s branch of Microsoft News. This story was in the “world” section.

    I’d be delighted to convey something more interesting than that, but they just picked up the story and poated it on the site…

    The Obama administration said “the president was considering issuing an executive order to put the brakes on fleeing American corporations”.

    And it seems that he is proposing to bypass congress to do it.

    A clearer admission of failure as leader of your nation I can’t imagine…

    Something isn’t right, Rationalman.

    President Obama deliberately destabilised the Middle East. He toppled Qaddafi leaving Libya in chaos, allowing small arms from that country to go through Turkey to the rebels in Syria. He then supported and encouraged the Syrian ‘rebels” as much as America allowed him so to do, and created a narrative about the necessity of toppling Assad.

    Al-Qaeda ousted the former leftist instigators of the Qatar-inspired rebellion and, without blinking, Mr Obama supported al-Qaeda – hitherto the West primary terrorist enemy.

    But the evil spawn of al-Qaeda, the Islamic State, departed from the plan and began taking the region for itself, attacking infidels and former Muslim allies alike; shaking co-sponsors Qatar and Saudi Arabia to the core.

    Something had to be done, but an about-face would be transparent. That is until the depraved savages of the Islamic State, in one ill-conceived murder, provided the necessary excuse.

    That majority of Western people, not closely following events, are shocked. They will now likely acquiesce to an Allied attack, entering the fray on Assad’s side to crush the Islamic State.

    Boots on the ground.

    And then what? Does the West then turn on Assad once again? That would mean confrontation with Russia.

    The policy of domino-like regime change in the Middle East to bring it under Western influence is in disarray.

    Such is the law of unintended consequences

    Here are a couple of ardent young men taking their girlfriends out for a double date…

    Strictly speaking, Unalien, I think that you’re correct.

    But it’s still as funny as hell!

    I agree, Texas. Hamas should be simply and methodically exterminated. They will never change and there is no other realistic solution.

    But did anybody observe the difference between the urgent headline of the video “Watch Terrified Israelis Run From Hamas Rocket” and the reality? True, some ran, but many just strolled. I even heard laughter and, when the photographer turned to view the sea, I saw a large number of people who hadn’t bothered to interrupt their day.

    It seems that Hamas terrorists aren’t quite as terrifying as they had obviously hoped to be. Imagine their disappointment.

    On another tack; Israel does seem like a very nice place, with pristine beaches in front of a pleasant and modern city… I think I might go and visit it in the near future…

    Oh, and did you catch the sophistry that Hamas put it’s rockets amongst it’s civilian population because “Gaza is pretty small and it’s very densely populated…”

    The potential next president of the United States is making excuses for the callous savagery of a designated terrorist organisation.

    Unbelievable. Well, no. Not really, I suppose…

    I realise that you are joking 80308, but this is an attempt by both Mr Obama and Mrs Cinton to re-write history. Mrs Clinton is also setting the stage for her 2016 campaign.

    Mr Obama was desperate to assist the “rebels” in Syria. He lost his “red line” bid to put allied boots on the ground, but he never-the-less supplied the rebels with money, arms, and training. Congress prevented further direct US involvement, much to his irritation at the time. The implication that he never wished to be involved is risible.

    Mrs Clinton is being typically slippery. Her (and the Obama administration’s) support of the Syrian “rebels” opened the door for al-Qaeda and, subsequently, the Islamic State.

    She supported the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt when Mr Morsi was in power, and Hamas is a creature of the MB. Her close aide, Huma Abedin, had undeniably close family connections with the MB. Gehad el-Haddad left his Clinton Foundation job for full-time employment with the MB in Egypt and was subsequently arrested for sedition.

    When recently asked about the Gaza/Israel war, she boasted of her previously negotiated a cease fire which “held until just this month. And then Hamas, which has its back against the wall, decided to fire rockets into Israel.” Err… excuse me?

    Also in the interview she stated that “obviously Israel has a right to self-defense, but….”


    It’s just more lies…

    I agree – it’s not Timmy.

    Timmy used to make me laugh a lot of the time with his impentrable ramblings; but, on the odd occassion, and when I could decipher his incoherent babble, I actually agreed with him. In fact, I miss him a little bit.

    This guy, on the other hand, is disturbed…

  • [10] August 3, 2014 at 12:06am

    I just had a look at your comment history, Slayer. It makes for pretty disturbing reading.

    Call your doctor.

    That’s very interesting, Snow (about the Egyptians), I’ll start watching for that.

    Cheers, mate.

    The silver lining is that this will play well for the Republicans in the upcoming election.

    The reason for voting Republican is that the Democrat senators aren’t doing their job…

  • [1] August 2, 2014 at 6:15am

    I’ve been having a bit of trouble too, Snow. I thought that it was my computer connection (which isn’t all that good out here in the sticks).

    I watched this story on NZ free-to-air news tonight.

    The coverage that used to have a noticeable anti-Israel slant is now becoming more evenly balanced.

    I think that sites like the Blaze, which report that facts and debunk the warped propoganda, are starting to have an effect. I also think that the social media, and the sharing of stories, has had no small input.

    This is a new war, my friends, fought as much on our computer screens as it is on the battlefield.

    And it seems that we are beginning to turn the tide…

    I think that a pounding is what they are hoping for, Turbo. They want dead bodies, preferably those of children, all over the world’s TV screens…

    Does that not remind one of the black and white footage of Nazis murdering Jews?

    There is no other rational solution. These barbaric savages must be confronted and exterminated. Any attempt at appeasement will only invite more of this horror…

    It’s now stuck in mine also. If it stays there too long, I might have to replace it with a bullet…

    The answer to your question, Fatheroftwo, is that they won’t.

    It seems pretty clear, to me at least, that the Democrats are hoping to use this controversy to defend their senate majority later this year.

    A significant proportion of the large amounts of money that Mr Obama has been raising will be aimed at the Hispanic community. The language has already started to emerge; the Republicans want to split up Hispanic families and send all illegals home. They are attacking vulnerable children so vote Democrat to protect your family and friends.

    It’s a dishonest argument, but it’s very powerful.

    The GOP needs to get in front and take the initiative. That said, I’m not sure how they might do that. If I did, I would probably be somewhat wealthier than I am now…
