J Street is an alt-left group that wants Israel to return to the 1948 borders, leaving the country nine miles wide at its narrowest. It approves of removing all Jews from the West Bank, just as all Jews were removed from Gaza, and ignores the fact that there are some two million Arab full citizens in Israel.
And J Street believes that the United States should intervene to force this solution on the government of Israel.
Why would any organization approve of eliminating the entire Jewish population of a contested zone, leaving an Arab country that is “Jew-free”, just like Gaza, Lebanon, Iran, Saudi Arabia, etc. Simply said, J Street believes it’s okay for Jews to be excluded totally from Arab nations, but Arabs must have full rights (they do) in Israel.

A little background is in order. Continue reading →
Hillary’s high-priced speeches all started with the $10 Billion bailed-out Morgan Stanley in April, 2013
At the end of August, 2008 Morgan Stanley received $10 billion under the Capital Purchase Program (CPP), also called the “big bank bailout” by average citizens, who wondered then why so much was spent on so few banks and financial institutions. After all, the direct cash came just from the taxpayers – $620 billion in all – in a flurry of so-called emergency disbursements.
And there was also money borrowed by Morgan Stanley – tons of it. Bloomberg News explained this way: Continue reading →
Warren Buffett is the best known man in Omaha, Nebraska – a hometown boy, fourth richest person in the world, and admirer of Hillary Clinton. That friendship, her speaking style and his popularity – combined – couldn’t fill the Omaha North High School auditorium, even after some of the stands were packed with too-young-to-vote schoolchildren.
There are times, such as yesterday in Nebraska, when even the wealthiest skinflint in the world must feel defeated.
Meanwhile, Donald Trump is turning away thousands at some rallies, attracting record audiences for a Republican candidate, throngs comparable to the crowds produced for Bernie Sanders, who was also running against Hillary.
What is going on here? How can a woman, who has earned millions of dollars in speeches authorized by CEOs of major corporations, not attract a crowd? You would think that anyone. who was paid $300,000 or more for a speech, must be a great speaker, and gee whiz, here’s a chance to hear her – no charge. Continue reading →
