Israelis scold Huckabee for saying Iran deal sends them to ‘door of the oven’

Posted in Politics with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 28, 2015 by sheriffali

The fallout over Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee’s controversial remarks on the Iran nuclear deal has now reached Israel.

 

Over the weekend, Huckabee derided the deal announced in Vienna between six world powers and Iran, saying it would “take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven.” The comments, which invoked the Holocaust in criticizing the agreement — it restricts Tehran’s nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief — earned swift condemnation from the Anti-Defamation Leaguecomedian Jon Stewart and congressional Democrats, as well as President.

 

Huckabee, as my colleague Jose A. DelReal noted, made hay with the controversy, responding to Obama’s censure with a new attack on the president’s supposed blindness to the real threat that Iran poses.

 

Criticism now, though, has come from a constituency the former Arkansas governor would probably be less inclined to offend: Israel.

Yisrael Katz, the country’s transport minister and a close ally of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, said on Facebook that although he appreciated Huckabee’s concern for Israel, the comments went a bit too far.

 

“Respected Mr. Huckabee: nobody marches the Jews to ovens anymore,” Katzsaid. “To this end we established the State of Israel and the [Israel Defense Forces]; and, if need be, we will know how to defend ourselves, by ourselves.”

 

Katz was not alone in raising an objection.

 

“These are not words that I would use or that I think are appropriate,”said Ron Dermer, Israel’s ambassador to the United States, stressing that despite his opposition to the deal, he didn’t believe the White House was acting in bad faith.

Conservatives Are Gearing Up For Fight Of Their Lives After Gay Marriage Ruling

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 30, 2015 by sheriffali

NEW YORK (AP) — Now that same-sex marriage is legal nationwide, religious conservatives are focusing on preserving their right to object. Their concerns are for the thousands of faith-based charities, colleges and hospitals that want to hire, fire, serve and set policy according to their religious beliefs, notably that gay relationships are morally wrong.

 

The Republican Party’s 2016 presidential candidates are already campaigning on the issue. And Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is urging President Barack Obama and the nation’s governors “to join me in reassuring millions of Americans that the government will not force them to participate in activities that violate their deeply held religious beliefs.”

 

The religious liberty fight isn’t about what happens inside the sanctuary. First Amendment protections for worship and clergy are clear. Potential conflicts could arise, however, over religious organizations with some business in the public arena. That category ranges from small religious associations that rent reception halls to the public, to the nation’s massive network of faith-based social service agencies that receive millions of dollars in government grants. Some groups, such as the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, also want protections for individual business owners who consider it immoral to provide benefits for the same-sex spouse of an employee or cater gay weddings.

 

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy raised the issue in the majority opinion Friday granting gays the right to marry. He said First Amendment protections are in place for religious objectors, who “may continue to advocate with utmost, sincere conviction that, by divine precepts, same-sex marriage should not be condoned.”

 

But in his dissent, Chief Justice John Roberts predicted a clash ahead between religious freedom and same-sex marriage. He specifically noted the dilemma for religious colleges that provide married student housing, and adoption agencies that won’t place children with gay couples.

 

“There is little doubt that these and similar questions will soon be before this court,” Roberts wrote.

 

Conservative religious groups have for years been on watch for potential clashes over religious liberty and gay rights, and have been lobbying for religious exemptions in statehouses and Congress. But conservative anxieties intensified over an exchange during April’s oral arguments in the gay marriage case between Justice Samuel Alito and Solicitor General Donald Verrilli.

 

Alito noted the high court’s 1983 decision to revoke the tax-exemption of Bob Jones University in South Carolina because it barred interracial dating. Alito asked if the government would take such action against religiously affiliated schools that oppose same-sex marriage. Verrilli said, “It is certainly going to be an issue. I don’t deny that.”

Jim Bob And Michelle Duggar’s Interview On Fox News Kelly File Is Self Evident That The GOP, Fox And The Duggars Republican God doesn’t Have A Problem With Incest And The Sexual Abuse Of Children.

Fox News Interview Backfires Instead Shows Why Duggars Should Never Be Allowed Back On TV

 

The Duggars interview on Fox News backfired. Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar showed no remorse, claimed that they were victims of the police and media, and revealed to the world why they should never be allowed back on television.

 

 

The interview intro featured Megyn Kelly referring to Josh Duggar’s admitted child molestation as “allegations.” Megyn Kelly’s intro sounded like it came directly from the Duggars agent.

 

 

The interview began with Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar repeating their press release. The Duggar parents said that they were devastated. Jim Bob said that Josh was just curious about girls and the girls didn’t even know that he did it. (Jim Bob and Michelle are working hard to whitewash their son’s crimes.) Jim Bob said, “Looking back, we did the best we could under the circumstances.” The Duggars claimed that this happens in a lot parents’ homes. Jim Bob said, “Again, this is not rape or something like that.”

 

 

 

Jim Bob Duggar claimed that they didn’t send their molesting son for real help, because real programs don’t have a good success rate. Jim Bob hinted that God cured Josh Duggar’s habit of molesting his sisters; Michelle Duggar said that her son knew in his heart it was wrong.

 

 

Megyn Kelly’s “tough questions” involve asking a lot of, ‘what was that like for you?’ Job Bob repeated that Christian based non-professional counseling turned his molester son’s life around.

 

 

Michelle Duggar was asked if she feared for the safety of her daughters, and she answered that they put safeguards in place, but she expressed no fear for her daughters. Jim Bob Duggar admitted that they didn’t try to protect their daughters as much as, “Josh’s heart went astray.” Jim Bob tried to explain it away again by saying that none of the girls knew about it or understood what he had done. Duggar was claiming that Josh Duggar’s child molestation was a victimless crime.

 

 

In the next segment, the Duggars denied that they covered up their son’s crimes. Jim Bob said that the selection of the trooper was random. The Duggars said that the child pornography convicted cop put the fear of God into Josh. The Duggar parents said that Josh Duggar and all of their kids received professional counseling.

 

 

 

Jim Bob Duggar claimed that his family had nothing to hide by the time the TLC show began. Jim Bob said that God has forgiven Josh Duggar, and then the Fox News witch hunt against the police chief who leaked the report began. The Duggars speculated that the chief was bribed. The Duggars said that they want to be advocated for protecting juvenile records. The Duggars claimed that they are the victims in the situation because the sealed Josh Duggar police report was leaked. Jim Bob Duggar quoted Mike Huckabee saying that Josh should be forgiven.

 

 

 

If this interview was intended to get the Duggars their television show back, it backfired. In the entire hour, there was no apology from the Duggars who denied that there is any hypocrisy in their behavior. Michelle Duggar claimed that there is an agenda and Josh Duggar’s actions are being twisted to hurt and slander the family.

 

 

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar showed no remorse and argued for the rest of the family not being punished for what Josh did. It is obvious that TLC and the Duggars are working together, and this interview was designed to get them back on television, whether it be as 19 Kids and Counting or a spinoff.

 

 

The Duggars claimed that they were victimized by the police, and their trust was betrayed.

 

 

Fox News thought they were helping to save the Duggars, but in reality, they did the public a favor by showing the world why this family should not be allowed on national television. The Duggars think that they are the victims, which is why this twisted family should never be on television again. [Politicususa]

DUGGARS - 2 DUGGARS - FOX NEWS DUGGARS - 13 DUGGARS - 11

Apparently The Republican God Is Fine With Child Molestation And Incest, But Seems To Be Really Ticked Off At Gays, Contraception, Minorities, The 50% White President And Immigrants.

[NYT] Former Gov. Mike Huckabee, the Republican from Arkansas who is running for president, has come to the defense of the former director of the conservative Family Research Council’s lobbying group who resigned this week amid allegations that he had molested children.

 

Josh Duggar, a conservative activist whose family has been chronicled in the reality television show “19 Kids and Counting” stepped down from his job at FRC Action on Thursday after In Touch Weekly revealed a 2006 police report that showed him at the center of a police investigation. Mr. Duggar, who worked on Mr. Huckabee’s 2008 presidential campaign, wrote in a post on Facebook that the allegations were true and that he regretted his actions.

 

“Twelve years ago, as a young teenager I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret,” Mr. Duggar said.

 

On Friday, Mr. Huckabee expressed his support for the Duggar family, which hails from Arkansas, and said that Mr. Duggar deserved a second chance.

 

“Josh’s actions when he was an underage teen are as he described them himself, ‘inexcusable,’ but that doesn’t mean ‘unforgivable’,” Mr. Huckabee said in a statement that scolded anyone who took pleasure in the revelations. “Those who have enjoyed revealing this long ago sins in order to discredit the Duggar family have actually revealed their own insensitive blood thirst.”

 

Mr. Huckabee’s defense of Mr. Duggar could come back to haunt him as his second White House bid gathers pace. A former Baptist pastor, he has faced criticism in the past for granting clemency to prisoners as governor of Arkansas.

 

Mr. Duggar, who also worked on former Senator Rick Santorum’s 2012 presidential campaign, has been active in conservative politics for many years. His Twitter feed shows pictures of himself with Mr. Huckabee and as well as poses with Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas and former Gov. Jeb Bush.

Two prominent Americans — an Eminent Social Scientist and the President of the United States — decided to answer the question: How have America’s churches failed the poor? Americans give to Religion 82.5 Billion Dollars Annually.

Their answer was one deeply congenial to the progressive mind:

 

 “They’ve been too obsessed with the culture war.”

 

“Over the last 30 years,” Harvard’s Robert Putnam told The Washington Post, “most organized religion has focused on issues regarding sexual morality, such as abortion, gay marriage, all of those. I’m not saying if that’s good or bad, but that’s what they’ve been using all their resources for … It’s been entirely focused on issues of homosexuality and contraception and not at all focused on issues of poverty.”

 

President Obama’s version, delivered when he shared a stage with Putnam at Georgetown University, was nuanced but similar in thrust: “Despite great caring and concern,” the president remarked, when churches pick “the defining issue” that’s “really going to capture the essence of who we are as Christians,” fighting poverty is often seen as merely “nice to have” compared to “an issue like abortion.”

 

It would be too kind to call these comments wrong; they were ridiculous. Not only because (as Putnam acknowledged) believers personally give abundantly to charity, but because institutionally the churches of America use “all their resources” in ways that completely belie the idea that they’re obsessed with culture war.

 

As Mark Hemingway of The Weekly Standard pointed out, “Even the most generous estimates of the resources devoted to pro-life causes and organizations defending traditional marriage are just a few hundred million dollars.” Whereas the budgets of American religious charities and schools and hospitals and other nonprofits are tabulated in the tens of billions. (Indeed, as Bloomberg View’s Megan McArdle noted, some of that money — from Catholic sources — paid Obama’s first community-organizer salary.)

Republicans Manifesto: More Religion, More Guns, More Wars, More Tax Cuts For The Rich And Nothing For The Middle-Class, Students And The Poor.

 

Agenda, Increase The Age To 70 For Social Security Benefits, Privatize Medicaid And Medicaid, Repeal Obamacare, Cut Food Stamps And Other Social Services For The Needy. Why Do Middle Class And Poor People Vote Republican?

 

 

 

Jeb Bush delivered a forceful defense of religious freedom from a secular government during a speech at an evangelical university on Saturday, deploring the rise of “coercive federal power” under President Obama that he said was seeking to impose progressive dogma on the country’s faithful.

 

But in an intriguing omission at a school known for its long-time opposition to same-sex unions, Mr. Bush did not mention the raging debate over the legalization of gay marriage, or express his opposition to it, even as he touched on the environment, sex trafficking and abortion.

 

 

In his commencement address to students at Liberty University, a Virginia school well known for hosting Republican presidents and presidential candidates, Mr. Bush bemoaned that “federal authorities are demanding obedience, in complete disregard of religious conscience — and in a free society, the answer is no.”

 

 

Mr. Bush suggested that, were he to return to office as an elected official, his Christian faith would be an inevitable force in his decision-making.

 

“It can be a touchy subject, and I am asked sometimes whether I would ever allow my decisions in government to be influenced by my Christian faith,” he told the students. “Whenever I hear this, I know what they want me to say. The simple and safe reply is, ‘No. Never. Of course not.’ If the game is political correctness, that’s the answer that moves you to the next round.”

 

But Mr. Bush called that flawed thinking. “The mistake is to confuse points of theology with moral principles that are knowable to reason as well as by faith,” he said.

 

He deplored a “false narrative that casts religious Americans as intolerant scolds, running around trying to impose their views on everyone.”

 

His speech made a pointed but affirmative case for Christianity as a positive force for freedom and compassion. There is, he said, “no more powerful or liberating influence” and praised its “most dynamic, inclusive and joyful message.”

 

Mr. Bush spoke against the “hostile caricature” of Christians and seemed to implore the audience to treat him as an ambassador to skeptical outsiders who are misinformed about the faithful.

 

Intriguingly, Mr. Bush made no reference to his own Catholicism. He converted to the faith from Episcopalianism in the 1990s.

 

The Bush family has a long history with Liberty University. Both his father and brother — presidents both — have spoken there. The current president of the university, Jerry Falwell Jr., made light of that tradition on Saturday.

 

“Please tell your mother,” he told Mr. Bush, “I still don’t believe we’ve had enough Bushes speak here at Liberty.”

 

Mr. Bush came armed with a joke of his own. Mr. Falwell’s brother Jonathan, who attended the speech and spoke with Mr. Bush on Saturday, shares a distinction with Mr. Bush: Both his father and brother are presidents (albeit of a university).

 

“Somehow,” quipped Mr. Bush, “I don’t know what it was –  we really hit it off.”

Fox News Is To The Uninformed What Bernard Madoff Was To His Investors; They Are Bacterial Diseases Eating Away At The Stupid

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 23, 2014 by sheriffali

In Research Poll Fox News “only” tells the truth 17% of the time” and even then, they add, delete or modified the truth. The remainder of the time they just manufacture outrageous, outlandish lies and, believe it or not, the Die-Hard Fox and Republican Followers believes the rubbish more than they believe the Gospel itself.

 

The Trolls of the Republican Party that are the same people that follows Fox righteously and they write such insane one line statements, you wonder if they are living in the Poorest Nation in the world where illiteracy usurps the truth by 99%. For those with some sanity you would swear that you left America and are in the Twilight Zone.

 

In America, the most advanced Nation in the world with so much factual information available to everyone, how could we have fallen so far so fast, to have that many, uninformed, ignorant, uneducated and brainwashed people living amongst us.

I don’t know the answer but my better judgment tells me that the seditiousness promulgated by Republicans and Fox News, plays a major role in this sad state of affairs. To the followers of Republicans and Fox, phantasmagoric rationales and internecine narcissism are facts, and the more you try to establish what is the truth, these people remain adamant in their stupidity.

 

But as was written, “it is easier to fool someone than to convince them that they are being fooled,” or another way to say this would be Mark Twain’s version of “stupidity. “When you are dead you don’t know you are dead, others do, but you don’t, applying this philosophy to stupidity that may be the answer.”
