  • Pat Buchanan stands up for Obama against that mean Netanyahu

    Jihad Watch ^ | 8/15/15 | Robert Spencer
    Pat Buchanan has for years been such a virulent opponent of Israel that he has frequently been accused of anti-Semitism, and this column condemning Benjamin Netanyahu for supposedly interfering in America’s internal affairs by opposing the Iran deal is not going to erase that impression. The paleocon Right hates Israel with such abiding passion that it is increasingly self-contradictory: for a small government advocate like Buchanan defending Barack Obama and tacitly supporting a deal that threatens not just Israel, but the U.S. as well, manifests a moral myopia of catastrophic immensity. But it’s no surprise. I’ve noted before how the...

    Roseanne Barr has described Israel as "a Nazi state" for its conflict with Palestine. The comedian, who is Jewish, has used her radio show and blog to criticise the country's decision to attack the Gaza strip. "Israel is a Nazi state. The Jewish Soul is being tortured in Israel. The destruction of the Jews in Israel has been assured with this inhuman attack on civilians in Gaza," she wrote on her website. However, the former sitcom actress has since retracted her remarks and claimed to be pro-Israel. "I am going to shut up now. Forever, perhaps. I cannot take the...

Rand Paul Won’t Comment on Father’s Past Comparison of Gaza to “Concentration Camp”; Israelis Suprised Congressman Made Analogy Supporters of Ron Paul have been trying to make the case their candidate is pro-Israel despite his past statements and opposition to foreign aid to the Jewish state. Their job got a little harder after a two-year-old interview Rep. Paul gave to Iran’s Press TV was recently posted on YouTube in which he compared Israel’s treatment of Gaza to that of a Nazi concentration camp. In the 2009 interview, Paul talks about the “tragedy of Gaza,” comparing it...

    Outspoken Republican congressman Ron Paul says Israel had received a green light from the United States to launch an offensive in Gaza. The Texas congressman said the Israeli attack on the impoverished Gaza Strip shapes a bleak future for the whole world as it means that, "the whole idea of preemptive or preventive war is spreading." He went on to challenge the idea of Hamas threatening Israel's security and argued that "Palestinian missiles are so minor compared to the fire power of Israel, who has nuclear weapons." The US Congressman's remarks come as Israel continues to rebuff international efforts to...

Ever since President Bush, sometime after 9-11, converted to neoconservatism, his Middle East policy has suffered from the triple defects of that subspecies of the Right: hubris, ideology and immaturity. Neoconservatives see the world as they wish it to be, not as it is. Like teenagers, they act on impulse and rail against the counsel of experience. "Often clever, never wise," Russell Kirk said of the breed. Repeatedly, Bush was warned by traditional conservatives that to send a U.S. army to...

    And today, President Obama should end his and his country's shameful silence over the inhumane blockade of Gaza that is denying 1.5 million beleaguered people the basic necessities of a decent life. Time to start acting like America again. That bloody debacle in the Eastern Mediterranean last Sunday was an inevitable result of Israel doing what it always seems to do: going beyond what is essential to her security, to impose collective punishment upon any and all it regards as hostile to Israel. Israel claims, and film confirms, that its commandos rappelling down onto the Turkish ship were attacked with...

    Not the first time a Nazi analogy has tripped lightly from his lips in this area, although like Cardinal Martino, he doesn’t quite have the stones to own up to what he means. He’s not comparing Gaza to a German death camp, you see, just to your average, run-of-the-mill concentration camp. The fact that he coughed up the word “blitzkrieg” literally in the same breath is but an unhappy coincidence.

But Boehner did not follow normal protocol by coordinating the invite with the Obama administration, which then announced the president...

But it has also gotten something it did not bargain for. Its membership lists and associations have been exposed and its motives challenged.

And what would be the link in terms of Israel?” Suddenly, the Israeli...

The divide is over the question: What is this nation, America? Straussians, writes Gottfried, “wish to present the construction of government as an open-ended rationalist process. All children of the Enlightenment, once properly instructed, should be able to carry out this … task.” For traditional conservatives, before the nation is born, ”ethnic and cultural preconditions” must exist. All “successful constitutional orders,” he writes, “are the expressions of already formed nations and cultures.” To the old...

When asked how he would respond to potential military strikes against key Syrian targets, Assad suggested that the region will...

But they’re not exactly demanding that President Barack Obama stand down from launching airstrikes in the country. Like many Republican lawmakers, they want Congress to authorize any military action there, and are urging the administration to allow a healthy debate on the proper U.S. role — if any — in the dangerous country. But their criticism, at this point, falls short of total condemnation. The anti-war...

    We knew what was disclosed by WikiLeaks wasn’t good, but does it mean the end of United States global supremacy? According to MSNBC’s Pat Buchanan, that will be the fallout from reputed WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange’s latest document dump and the backlash of his arrest in the United Kingdom. Buchanan offered that dire assessment on the Dec. 12 broadcast of “The McLaughlin Group.” “What you got is an anarchic attack on American diplomacy,” Buchanan said. “Anarchic attack – by young people, very talented, want to destroy America’s position and destroy America diplomacy and frankly disarm America.” ...more (w/video)...

    Liberals see powerful centralized government as a way to achieve what they think is good. Neocons, although they disagree on what constitutes the good, share this view. Conservatives, in contrast, see powerful centralized government as a problem rather than a means to a solution. Liberals, in complete control of the American government, are heading for disaster. They have virtually destroyed our foreign policy. They are piling up deficits several times as large as the excessive deficit of last year. They promote policies that may well lead to the loss of the AAA rating of U. S. Treasury bonds and notes....

    A just war can only be waged as a last resort. All non-violent options must be exhausted before the use of force can be justified.A war is just only if it is waged by a legitimate authority. Even just causes cannot be served by actions taken by individuals or groups who do not constitute an authority sanctioned by whatever the society and outsiders to the society deem legitimate.A just war can only be fought to redress a wrong suffered. For example, self-defense against an armed attack is always considered to be a just cause (although the justice of the...

    Lady Elizabeth Butler's painting 'The Remnant of an Army' depicts Dr William Brydon, sole survivor of the British retreat from Kabul in 1842 As both Britain and America are plunged into an orgy of tortured introspection over what we are doing in Afghanistan, a further very important factor needs to be fed into the discussion, because it helps to explain not only why we have got into such a tragic mess but also why our armed intervention in that unhappy country is doomed. What we are hardly ever told about Afghanistan is that it has been for 300 years the...

    So why consider Obama? For one reason only: because this liberal Democrat has promised to end the U.S. combat role in Iraq. . . . [Because we want history to render a negative verdict on Iraq to discredit the doctrine of preventive war.]

    I would like to speak my mind. I am sick and tired of people telling me what to say. I understand the risk I take by saying this; and such I will continue. When I open my window, I don't see what the media wants me to see. I DON'T SEE death; war; dismemberment. I see a bright future. Not us, as conservatives, being fed to the temporal wolves. LET IT BE SAID that that no matter whom we vote for, the war in Iqaq will be downsized; whether you will be mad at McCain for it, or Romney, or...

    Like most Toogood Reports readers, I observed this year's battles within the conservative ranks with profound discomfort. In my mind, there are far too many real enemies out there to waste time and print fighting one another. It seems that the world of conservatism has been split up between the "conservatives" and the "paleo-conservatives" or between the "conservatives" and the "neo-conservatives." Both sides present themselves as the bona fide article and the other side as the one in need of a prefix. Personally, I just want to spit up this strife the same way the bleachers of Wrigley Field do...

    Utah Democrat Plans Pro-Bush Immigration Rally August 19th, 2006 @ 6:23pm SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Some Utah Democrats -- including Salt Lake City's high-profile Mayor Rocky Anderson -- may have plans to rally against President Bush and his policies when the country's leader comes to the Utah later this month, but not Tony Yapias. Instead the director of Proyecto Latino de Utah and chairman of the Utah Hispanic Democratic Caucus, plans a pro-Bush demonstration in support of the president's policies on immigration. "We're going to focus on what worries us most, and that's immigration," Yapias said. "The president supports...

    One field in which the next conservatism will probably depart abruptly from current policy is homeland security. The departure will begin with foreign policy and national strategy. As previous columns have suggested, the next conservatism's foreign policy will seek to preserve a republic here at home, not build an American empire overseas. Logically, that will lead to a defensive rather than an offensive national strategy. In both cases, the next conservatism will not be innovating but returning to the policies our country followed through most of its history. It is no accident that when we eschewed empire and followed a...
