The Land of Israel

I have watched the news and the speeches of world leaders at the United Nations, and I am absolutely mystified at what I have seen and heard. Our own President Barack Hussein Obama gave a speech that was spurious at best. He told the same untruth that his administration has been giving us since the attack on our embassy and the murder of our Ambassador to Libya and 3 others. His speech was long on apologies and short on action. I watched Israel’s Leader Binyamin Netanyahu, who stood up and spoke truth into a hateful group of people who wish only his and Israel’s destruction. I watched as Iran’s Leader spoke hate and destruction of Israel and the United States and then Egypt’s Leader spew hate for Israel and the West. I was amazed that we still allow the U. N. to take up space in our nation. It is not a group of nations who are intent on cooperation but rather a set of factions ready and willing to destroy those who are not like them, and then to destroy each other in the name of their god.

I did some research into this people called Israel, and am even more surprised and mystified as to why so many people want to destroy this land and its people. First let me dispel this lie that the Jewish people have only been in that part of the world for 50 to 60 years. Jews have lived in Israel (the Romans called it Palestine) for thousands of years. There is scientific evidence for their presence in the land. Even after Rome defeated them and destroyed the 2nd Temple in AD 70, there were still Jews left in the land. Jews returned to the land over the next 2,000 years after having been exiled, they came back and joined with their brothers and sisters who were not exiled. By the 1870’s they were again the majority religious group in Jerusalem. As they moved back they purchased the land from the Arabs who claimed it but did not live on it.
In modern times the Jewish people have reclaimed the desert, they planted trees and crops and the land again became what it once was, a land of beauty.

Why would the Arab nations want to destroy Israel, a place where the people have improved the standard of living for all who live in their land. Arabs and Jews alike share in the bounties of the land, Arab citizens serve in the Government, and in the Homeland Security positions, they are not discriminated against they are active participants in the life of Israel. Let us also understand some of the things that Israel has contributed to the world. They are the only Country in the world that entered the 21st Century with more trees than there were prior. It was the Israeli scientists who came up with bacteria to clean up oil spills. They have developed systems for irrigation that has changed agriculture, their drip irrigation system uses less water and is more efficient than other systems. It is in use here in the United States in South Texas. They developed the sun heated water tank, which converts solar energy into thermal energy.

Israeli scientists have also developed a vaccine to treat anthrax, research is moving on for treatment and/or cures for type 1 Diabetes, Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s and emphysema. They even have a device that causes acne bacteria to self-destruct without damage to surrounding skin. Safer methods for diagnosing diseases, how about a mini-video camera that fits inside a pill (indigestible of course) that will allow for diagnosis of intestinal diseases, and safer imaging techniques for diagnosing breast cancer.

Israeli researchers are also working on a (the Jetsons live), flying car, the Israeli company Urban Aerodynamics has a prototype they are testing, it is called, “X-Hawk Rotorless Flying Evacuation Car”. Israel is also the “Silicon Valley” of the world, they are the 4th largest high-tech economy since the 1990s. Microsoft and Intel have both built their only non-US R&D facilities in Israel. They developed the cell phone (Motorola-Israel), the technology behind AOL Instant Messenger, the first PC anti-virus software (1979), voice mail technology, nanotechnology and electro-optic chips. They also developed the Pentium 4 Microprocessor for desktops and the Centrino processor for laptops.

Israel also has the third-highest rate of entrepreneurship in the world, including the highest rate among women and people over 55. They also have the world’s highest per capita rate of university degrees, they have the highest ratio of scientists and technicians in the workforce, 135 per 1,000 citizens. In the U. S. the number is 85 per 1,000 citizens. They also rank third worldwide in per capita patents, behind the U. S. and Japan. Why then would there be so much hatred toward the Jews, toward Israel?

Why destroy such a treasure trove of science and technology? Could it be that the hatred that has exhibited itself over and over again throughout history, is something that will only be ended when, as we Christians believe the Messiah will come to right the wrongs of the world? The Jewish people are still waiting for the first coming, we believe it will be the second coming, but it does seem that the only way this hatred will be ended is for God to intervene and end the bloodshed and hatred that emanates from the Arab and Iranian (they are not arabs) people. This seems to be the only explanation, for this terrible wish to destroy Israel that comes from so many of these countries. Of course we can’t forget the Russians and the Chinese who are backing the Arabs and Iranians against the Jewish people.

I pray that we in the United States will wake up and again be a people who stand solidly with our ONLY ally in the Middle East. I was horrified when our President said that Israel was one of our strongest allies in that region. Even Jordan is under attack by the Muslim Brotherhood, Al Quaeda, Hamas, and Hezbollah. Jordan has been an ally, but, that is going to end before too long as the Caliphate comes closer to realization.

Join the conversation, what do you think about Israel and it’s people? Leave a comment so we can talk about this.

Congressman Francisco ‘Quico’ Canseco is running against Democrat Pete Gallego. Mr. Gallego has produced an ad that basically accuses Rep. Canseco of being rich and then that he doesn’t care about the people of TX23. The problem with that is that Rep. Canseco has worked hard to make sure that all the people of our district have been represented. He held many town hall meetings, and listened to the people of the district, then made decisions that I did not always agree with, but he made them based on what was best for all the district. That I can agree with.
As for Mr. Gallego, his record in the Texas House has been less than stellar, he is beholden to special interests and to the Obama administration, he supports the so called “Affordable Care Act” aka “Obamacare” which is going to destroy our health care and will raise taxes on all of us. A program which has already taken 500 billion dollars away from Medicare advantage plans to fund other parts of Obamacare. He claims to be for the small business person, yet the programs that the Obama administration is propagating will injure small businesses most. Because of this take over of health care, we are also seeing layoffs. We also see Doctors retiring from practice so they will not have to mess with the problems of trying to practice medicine while D. C. bureaucrats will tell them what they can and can’t do. They will interfere with the Doctor/Patient interaction.
Let us not forget that your medical records will also be available to these same bureaucrats, who says they will stay private? The truth is there is not any real security with our records, Social Security numbers are constantly being stolen from the Government, other forms and information has been released for the entire world to see. Do you really want the Democrats to continue taking away our freedoms, with their lies, and their hatred for people they don’t agree with.

Children beheaded by Taliban

A story by Reuters shows us what Afghanistan will look like if the Taliban regain power. We will see the country return to women no being allowed to work, of not even being allowed out of their homes unless accompanied by a male member of her family and she must be covered from head to toe. No skin must show or she can be stoned to death immediately. Children beheaded and even one whose skin was removed. Check out this story Reuters this is horrific.

Yes I want our men and women out of Afghanistan, not so the country can return to barbarism. These children were killed because they were considered immoral, not that they had done anything wrong, but because their families were trying to live their lives in freedom. These barbarians cannot be the future of this or any country, but, if we turn our backs on this there will be murder, rape, stoning, and maybe a few more crucifixions as they have already done in Egypt. It is time to stop believing that these people will return kindness for kindness, it will not happen. The history of Islam has been bloody, much bloodier than anything Christianity has done. You see, if these people defeat an enemy there are three choices offered. Become a Muslim, become a slave or DIE. NEWS FLASH for those of you women out there, you will become 2nd class citizens, any man in your family group can have his way with you and you have NO RIGHTS!

Please people wake up! This is not a peaceful religion, it is a religion of war and hatred, these people are not our friends. Even those who live in this country, will become just like the ones who conquer and kill, because their god requires that the subjugation of all the world under the Caliphate that the Muslim Brotherhood, Iran and the Mullahs are aiming for. BTW a Muslim man may have more than one wife it is legal for them to have 3 or 4 wives, don’t believe the lies that are being propagated by the government, it is not true that this is a great religion, it is instead a murderous group of people who use allah as an excuse to maim and kill. These people are barbarians. Women and children mean nothing to them only power is what has meaning.

The Plan

I keep reading how the Democrats say that Mitt Romney doesn’t have a plan except to give tax cuts to the rich and destroy the middle class. I have to admit that really torques my jaws. Mitt Romney does have a plan and lets take a look at some of it now.

1. Spending: First – repeal Obamacare immediate savings 95 Billion dollars a year.
Second – Privatize Amtrak — Savings: $1.6 Billion. Despite requirement that Amtrak operate on a for-profit basis, it continues to receive about $1.6 billion in taxpayer funds each year. Forty-one of Amtrak’s 44 routes lost money in 2008 with losses ranging from $5 to $462 per passenger. This is a complete political boondoggle and needs to be privatized. Third – Reduce Foreign Aid. Why do we give money to countries that want to destroy us? Fourth – Eliminate Title X Family Planning Funding — Savings: $300 Million. Title X subsidizes family planning programs that benefit abortion groups like Planned Parenthood. I keep hearing that Government should get out of our bedrooms, this will help make it happen.
Fifth – Align Federal Employee Compensation With The Private Sector — Savings: $47 Billion. Federal compensation exceeds private sector levels by as much as 30 to 40 percent when benefits are taken into account. This must be corrected.
This is only a partial list of the changes Mitt would make to spending. Click on the Spending title and you will be able to read the whole platform on spending.

2. Energy:
Establish fixed timetables for all resource development approvals
Create one-stop shop to streamline permitting process for approval of common activities
Implement fast-track procedures for companies with established safety records to conduct pre-approved activities in pre-approved areas
Ensure that environmental laws properly account for cost in regulatory process
Amend Clean Air Act to exclude carbon dioxide from its purview
Expand NRC capabilities for approval of additional nuclear reactor designs
Streamline NRC processes to ensure that licensing decisions for reactors on or adjacent to approved sites, using approved designs, are complete within two years

Conduct comprehensive survey of America’s energy reserves
Open America’s energy reserves for development
Expand opportunities for U.S. resource developers to forge partnerships with neighboring countries
Support construction of pipelines to bring Canadian oil to the United States
Prevent overregulation of shale gas development and extraction

This is just a small part of the overall plan of Mitt Romney as our President. I hope you will read the rest of his plan and share it with others as well. It is a good and sensible plan which will help to get us back on the right track to fiscal and energy independence. Let me know what you think about all this, because this is an election that will have a huge impact on the direction of our nation for years to come, from monetary policy, to supreme court justices. Thanks for reading and joining the discussion.

Sequester – BAD idea
September 10, 2012, 9:01 am
Filed under: Politics

I’m glad that Romney has come out and stated the obvious, this sequester nonsense was one of the worst ideas that our RINO leadership and the Dems came up with. It steals from the men and women who deserve much better than a bunch of panty waist RINO’s in congress. I was hoping that McConnell would be gone but of course that won’t happen, but we can still get him out of the leadership by electing some real conservatives to the Senate. It hurts me every time I see the House of Representatives pass a bill that is pro jobs, only to see it blocked in the Senate. The Chicken Democrats and the RINO Republicans are just interested in electing themselves to more terms, and Obama to another 4 years so they can destroy what is left of our Republic. Of course if we keep control of the House of Representatives I hope we add some more good conservatives there so we can move crying Boehner out of the leadership. He and Cantor have made too many deals with the Senate Leadership.
