Finally, A Real Leader Speaks

by Leigh Bravo  3/3/15

Prime Minister Netanyahu delivered a speech to the Congress and the American people this morning! Wow! So this is what a real leader looks like and sounds like? I have forgotten how nice it is to actually feel pride during a speech to the country. It felt really good to finally have a real leader stand up and not only speak the truth, but show his love and appreciation for the United States.

Finally a leader who has no problem calling out Islamic terrorists and Iran for their support of terrorism around the world. Finally the history of Iran and their continued assaults on the United States and its people is remembered. Netanyahu said,

“I’m standing her in Washington D.C and the difference is so stark. America’s founding documents promises life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Iran’s founding document pledges death, tyranny and the pursuit of jihad….Just last week, Iran carried out a military exercise blowing up a mock U.S. aircraft carrier. That’s just last week, while they’re having  nuclear talks with the United States.  But unfortunately, for the last 36 years, Iran’s attacks against the United States have been anything but mock. Iran took dozens of Americans hostage in Tehran, murdered hundreds of American soldiers, Marines, in Beirut, and was responsible for killing and maiming thousands of American service men and women in Iraq and Afghanistan. “

“Beyond the Middle East, Iran attacks America and its allies through its global terror network. It blew up the Jewish community center and the Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires. It helped Al Qaeda bomb U.S. embassies in Africa. It even attempted to assassinate the Saudi ambassador, right here in Washington, D.C. In the Middle East, Iran now dominates four Arab capitals, Baghdad, Damascus, Beirut and Sanaa. And if Iran’s aggression is left unchecked, more will surely follow. So, at a time when many hope that Iran will join the community of nations, Iran is busy gobbling up the nations.”

“We must all stand together to stop Iran’s march of conquest, subjugation and terror.”

Netanyahu further explained,

“Iran and ISIS are competing for the crown of militant Islam. One calls itself the Islamic Republic. The other calls itself the Islamic State. Both want to impose a militant Islamic empire first on the region and then on the entire world. They just disagree among themselves who will be the ruler of that empire. In this deadly game of thrones, there’s no place for America or for Israel, no peace for Christians, Jews or Muslims who don’t share the Islamist medieval creed, no rights for women, no freedom for anyone. So when it comes to Iran and ISIS, the enemy of your enemy is your enemy.”

“The greatest danger facing our world is the marriage of militant Islam with nuclear weapons. To defeat ISIS and let Iran get nuclear weapons would be to win the battle, but lose the war. We can’t let that happen.”

 Netanyahu went on the explain that the current deal in the works with Iran would not require then to destroy any nuclear facilities and the centrifuges used to enrich uranium, necessary to produce nuclear weapons, would be allowed to continue production. He also shined the light on the fat that inspectors have been fooled in the past, and that they are only able to “document violations, not stop them.”  “Inspectors knew when North Korea broke to the bomb, but that didn’t stop anything. North Korea turned off the camera, kicked out the inspectors. Within a few years it got the bomb. Now we ‘re warned that within five years North Korea could have an arsenal of 100 nuclear bombs.”

Ed Royce, Republican from California,  claimed that he had supported passage of legislation to give the Ayatollah a choice between economic collapse for his system or compromise on his nuclear program. It passed in  the house 400 -20 in favor, yet Harry Reid refused to let the bill come to the Senate floor.  Royce feels the current deal paves the way for Iran to get a Nuclear bomb. He further said,

 “What is incredible is that we would take off the table, in the last session, the types of sanctions that really could have imploded the regime in Iran.”

Although the majority of the House came together to support Netanyahu, there were dozens of  Democratic representatives who refused to welcome the Prime Minister.  President Obama called Netanyahu’s visit a “mistake” that would be “permanently destructive” to the U.S. Israeli relationship. After the Prime Minister’s speech, Democrats responded,

 “I want to congratulate Speaker Boehner and PM Netanyahu on their very impressive bit of political theatre. The speech validated all the reasons I said I would not attend. I think Netanyahu got it all wrong…..he can now go home to his campaign and say he lectured Congress and the American people on things that apparently we didn’t know.”

“I did not appreciate the condescending tone…that basically says he doesn’t think Congress understands the threat that they pose…. I resent that he was telling us how to negotiate…. This was fear mongering….he said the deal has to be perfect…that’s like a child who says I want to go to disney land every day, eat ice cream every day, have coca cola, everyday, and not go to school…” 

Netanyahu further said,

“Because Iran’s nuclear program would be left largely intact, Iran’s break-out time would be very short — about a year by U.S. assessment, even shorter by Israel’s.”

Meanwhile, Obama said negotiators are working toward ensuring, “there’s at least a year between us seeing them try to get a nuclear weapon and them actually being able to obtain one.”

According to a report by the Institute for Science and International Security in September 2013, Iran had come within two to three months of a bomb when negotiations began.

 Netanyahu further explained the downside of the current deal on the table with Iran.

“So you see, my friends, this deal has two major concessions: one, leaving Iran with a vast nuclear program and two, lifting the restrictions on that program in about a decade. That’s why this deal is so bad. It doesn’t block Iran’s path to the bomb; it paves Iran’s path to the bomb.”

The Prime Minister suggested that before lifting any restrictions against Iran, the world should demand three things,

    1. Stop the aggression against its neighbors in the Middle East.
    2. Stop supporting terrorism around the world.
    3. Stop threatening to annihilate my country, Israel, the one and only Jewish state.

Meanwhile Obama, in his usual narcissistic manner, responded to the speech by saying,

 “Netanyahu,  didn’t offer any viable alternatives. This is the best possible deal to keep Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons.”

Trust me…..?

    I doubt Barry Screwtape Obama is capable of genuine leadership, but it certainly is impossible to lead effectively when your sympathies are on the opposing side.

  2. GHG says:

    Rush said ” Benjamin Netanyahu, a perfect example of a foreigner coming here to do the jobs Americans won’t do. In this case, behaving like a president, which is exactly what he did.”

    I love Rush.

  3. Bell Phillips says:

    I certainly hope the Israelis are able to take care of this problem, since the US is obviously not going to. Barring that, I hope the bomb detonates in Washington, DC and brings some much needed reform. If it blows up in Kansas I can hear Barry telling them how much trouble they’ll be in if they do it again.

  4. Anniel says:

    Leigh, Listening to Nancy Pelosi caterwauling afterwards made me sick. Then the other idiots all piled on. Rush says that Netanyahu is well aware that Obama hates him and will continue the back-stabbing. Well, he’s tried his best so far.

    Yes, God bless both our nations.

  5. Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

    Please just shoot me if I ever take all of my problems and make the Jews responsible for them.

    The disturbing part of this issue is that you can clearly see the moral inversion that has occurred in the West. Old Isaiah was on to something when he wrote: Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

    We have elected just such a person as president. “Secular” Europe is infested by that mindset in particular — even as I’ve seen lately amongst erstwhile conservative writers.

    This is the reason deists, agnostics, and other flavors of those on the right can hang out with Jesus Freaks of all types (and I say that affectionately). No one knows better than I do the kind of moral turnabout that has happened in the West.

    Dennis Prager in a recent article stated that the reason Obama and others don’t like Bibi is because “Those who do not confront evil resent those who do.” This is a funny blind spot for a man who is otherwise very wise. The correct analysis is that Obama and his ilk see Israel and America as evil and Iran as good — third-world victims of imperialism. Surely Dennis knows this and likely wouldn’t disagree.

    The moral inversion that has happened is almost complete. It’s a rebellion. Anything not established by today’s Left is considered in need of change. If “the right” believed in the concept of male and female, then that “oppressive” injunction must be overturned. Name a good and decent value that the Left ascribes to the big, bad “right” and you’ll find them running to the opposite and trying to make it work.

    I don’t have the same conception of God as most of the lovable Jesus Freaks here do. But I do believe in the idea of objective morality (a topic that Dennis has taken up in a previous article brought to my attention by Mr. Kung). Even more basic than God the lawgiver is God the bringer of coherence. I don’t mean order, per se, although it’s related to that. I mean that without a central organizing principle of being, there is only, and can ever be, chaos, confusion, turmoil, and beastliness.

    We don’t always know what is right or what to do in any given situation. But we often will notice when we lack that certain something the propels our lives and minds in a coherent way. Mental illness, for all intents and purposes, could be called a lack of the ability to gain coherence to a degree that gives life direction, meaning, and purpose.

    Atheism, secularism, and Progressivism all work to sap anything deep out of life. These political and social views can only ever make people more shallow…and less coherent. That lack of coherence — the very ability to see right from wrong — has been made a sneaky political doctrine. And our president is at the head of this incoherent group. That’s not to say that they are confused about what they want to accomplish. They are not. But they are confused about right and wrong. They have plowed their minds with foul doctrine and now we are reaping the ills of that.

    • GHG says:

      BOOM! Well said.

    • Timothy Lane says:

      I think most pundits, like most politicians, are reluctant to face the truth that Barry Screwtape Obama has consistently shown a preference for America’s enemies over America’s friends, and a preference for dictators over democrats. Both reflect his natural inclinations, but no one wants to admit that our ruler is on the other side in a struggle between good and evil.

    • Pst4usa says:

      Excellent post Brad, but I have to disagree with you on Dennis and how or what he thinks about 0bama, in this respect he has a Polly-Anna streak a mile wide. He just cannot prescribe that kind of Hate America first attitude to 0bama. I can and do agree with your assessment, but this and NSA data mining are the two areas that just drive me crazy when it comes to Dennis.

      • Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

        Pat, I think you’ve mentioned before — or I’ve garnered from other sources — that the reason Dennis is a little loosey-goosey about calling a spade a spade is because so many of his family and friends are extreme Jewish liberals. And so to keep the peace (and faced with this reality), it’s probably not very comfortable for him to say that these are bad people for holding bad ideas. They believe what Obama believes, so what do you do?

        It’s a strange dichotomy from a man who perhaps more than anyone out there is telling us that we should face evil and call it what it is. He also has commented on the aspect that people facilitate evil by holding certain ideas….while thinking they are the best of people while doing so.

        Dennis is usually pretty astute regarding these issue. But he’s got a couple of soft spots. The conservative press is full of people who say that Obama is simply incompetent. Many people (perhaps because they are so steeped in the beltway) do not see him for who he is. A huge contributing factor is that it is now “impolite” to call a Communist a Communist or a Marxist a Marxist. The greatest success of the Left may be their ability to make Marxism/Communism (under various other names) socially acceptable.

        So to actually confront Obama on his core beliefs is to also confront many average Americans on their core beliefs. And few are comfortable doing that, present company not included.

        • Timothy Lane says:

          An important point to remember is that most Beltway types are concerned about political expediency as well as principle — and they consider telling the truth about Satan’s Spawn (even if they do realize it) very inexpedient because voters will be told (by the synoptic media aka the Demagogues’ propaganda arm) that this is “extreme” (which they’ll never be told when liberals routinely say worse things about those they hate for the crime of disagreement).

          • Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

            I was thinking just yesterday, Timothy, at how successful the Left has been in banning (if only by the force of self-censorship) traditional idea of morality. Republicans aren’t much more comfortable with them. But as Nik says, and I agree with, there is no solution to the problems we have built unless we ground the solutions in a moral framework. Does anyone seriously think the GOP is able to do that? A couple, maybe. But they are, for all intents and purposes, the “bitches” of the Left. They are shackled and don’t know it.

        • Pst4usa says:

          Dennis does have soft spots, I do think, however it has happened, he is getting a little better on the Obama issue though, even if it is just slightly.

          • GHG says:

            I must disclaim that I’m no uber-intellect and one of my many weaknesses is thinking I “know” something when I’m probably less informed than I realize.

            But … you knew there was a “but” coming, didn’t you … it seems most sentient human beings will know that what they see waddling like a duck and hear quacking like a duck – in in fact, a duck. Somehow, even some of those we otherwise know to be clear thinking people have a problem identifying waddling and quacking water fowl as a duck. I hope not to have to accuse anyone of cowardice or worse, especially someone I respect – so come on DP, call a duck a duck already.

            • Timothy Lane says:

              The problem is that they know what it means to see the duck, and they hope — somehow –that they really just something that looks and sounds like a duck. The notion that we elected a “leader” whose sympathies are on the other side in every dispute is too frightening for them to contemplate, and leads to too much pressure on them to recant if they acknowledge it. So they consider it better not to see the truth.

              • GHG says:

                Fear of pressure to recant is …

                I like Dennis Prager and much of what he writes but I guess I would rather have the unadulterated truth from a Mark Levin than the calm and measured caution of a Dennis Prager. Levin calls a duck a duck and that resonates with me more than Prager’s lack of total committment to say what he believes regardless of the attack on him that would be sure to come his way.

                They remind me of Unitarians who don’t really believe in God, but want to belong to a church.

    Ha! That’s the opposite of me. I don’t really want to belong to a church but would like to believe in God.

    Gotta sympathize with those Jews with all the crap they put up with. It’s hard to hold a grudge that they’re still waiting for their Messiah. You sure hope such a Messiah wears a big red “S” on his chest and kicks Jihadists’ asses morning, noon, and night. For now, we’ll go with Bibi.

  7. Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

    Levin calls a duck a duck and that resonates with me more than Prager’s lack of total committment to say what he believes…

    I think Mark Levin is like the Wrath of God (or Wrath of Kahn). And sometimes I need that. Dennis Prager is like the Wisdom of God. And when I’m done with all the yelling and screaming sometimes that is what I need.

    Prager seems a decent fellow and is one of the few I would trust at the table if ever there was another Constitution Convention (Levin is as well). Despite some shortcomings, it’s amazing that there aren’t more considering where he started from – a liberal Jew. Could any of us have escaped such powerful programming?
