Because there are so many issues to deal with on a day-to-day basis, I literally never run an Editorial “THREAD”. At most, I might write one or two follow-ups, but generally, not more than one.
I have received many COMMENTS, which people have left on the BLOG concerning the BIG SPEECH, and FAR MORE in my IN-BOX.
People who’ve contacted me via EMAIL, and have COMMENTED on the BLOG, have various common fears and concerns.
1 – Will Netanyahu be BULLIED into NOT making the speech?
2 – Will Netanyahu hold back so as NOT to irritate the President?
3 – There is also a thread of FEAR for Netanyahu’s LIFE.
4 – Will the Media even carry the speech?
5 – Will the Media give the speech a fair review?
6 – Will the American Jewish LEFT criticize Netanyahu? And will the Israeli LEFT still support Obama?
7 – And will anyone show-up to hear the speech?
I do not pretend to be an EXPERT on any of this, but I do have my OPINIONS that are based on experience and knowledge of HISTORY, the REGION, and the PLAYERS.
1 – YOU CANNOT BULLY A REAL LEADER, especially one who was a trained and Combat Tested Commando, who is fighting for the survival of his people. Netanyahu will give that speech, even if he has to do it from a stretcher.
2 – Because of Obama’s PETULANCE, and combined extraordinarily BAD BEHAVIOR toward Israel over the past 6-YEARS . . . Netanyahu has been driven to the point, that what bothers Obama is no longer an issue for Israel. THE PRIME MINISTER WILL HOLD NOTHING BACK IN HIS CRITIQUE OF IRAN.
3 – If the THREAT of violence (assassination) is something for Netanyahu to guide his decisions and actions, he wouldn’t get out of bed in the morning. A REAL LEADER does what has to be done IN-SPITE of the threats.
4 – ALL THE NEWS MEDIA will have no choice, but to carry this speech in one way or another if they don’t want to become even MORE IRRELEVANT in the eyes of the people they depend upon for audience and revenue.
5 – The Media might not want to give Netanyahu a FAIR RIDE, because of their slant to the LEFT, but, if the Prime Minister’s Speech is what I am certain it will be, for the Media to attack Netanyahu, they would be attacking Israel, putting them VERY MUCH ON THE WRONG SIDE OF THIS DEBATE AND HISTORY.
So . . . Even if they REALLY want to slant Netanyahu’s speech to the negative, it will be done at their own risk if Netanyahu delivers what I am certain will be a CHURCHILLIAN SPEECH.
6 – I have no idea what the Leftist American Jewish Community will say about Netanyahu, but, as being a VERY PRO ISRAEL JEW, I couldn’t give a RAT’S-ASS what the Jewish LEFT will have to say.
I do NOT see the American Jewish LEFT as co-religionists who deserve special consideration. IN FACT, I consider them to be JUDENRAT, who are the problem . . . not the solution.
AS FOR ISRAELIS . . . The Obama honeymoon didn’t last long enough for the consecration. And if Obama were to run today for ISRAELI DOG-CATHER-IN-CHIEF, the dog would win.
7 – EVERY REPUBLICAN WILL COME TO HEAR IT . . . and guests who are renowned for who they are and what they do . . . are already NEGOTIATING HARD, for an invitation to be in the Spectators’ Balcony.
AS FOR DEMOCRAT MEMBERS OF CONGRESS . . . THEIR ENTIRE BLACK CAUCUS has already made it clear that they will stay away. I guess the Black Caucus doesn’t like Jews. Or they simply FAVOR Iran.
Hardcore LEFTISTS have said they will stay away. But anyone, who wished that Netanyahu would have changed his mind and NOT come . . . who are too politically frightened themselves NOT to come, will be there, ONLY because they’re political Prostitutes.
Several people have asked me who in government will be able to attend the speech at the JOINT SESSION of CONGRESS, several thinking that it is ONLY HOUSE MEMBERS who can attend.
THE JOINT SESSION OF CONGRESS . . . is the rare coming together in one room, all at the same time, of the WHOLE CONGRESS, including all Senators and all House Members.
Generally . . . the President, the Vice President, the Cabinet, and leaders of both parties attend. And in some cases, so do the Supreme Court Justices. THAT’S HOW IMPORTANT A JOINT SESSION OF CONGRESS IS.
And that’s how INSULTING it will be to all Jews and all Israelis by all the politicians who DON’T show-up for whatever reason.
I see the Israeli Prime Minister coming to the SPEAKER’S Podium under an EARTH SHAKING AND EAR SPLITTING STANDING OVATION.
I see Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu given the SUPER STAR – SUPER HERO treatment, as the CHURCHILL of our day . . . and the TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY MOSES of Israel and the Jewish People.
Conservative Politicians in opposition have finally come to the conclusion, that Obama, and the LEFT in general, have overplayed their hand, and have run out of cards.
And as soon as the SHEEPLE begin to smell the BLOOD of the LEFT, and today’s version of Aristocrats on either side of the great divide . . . that’s when they will begin to eat their own.
ON MARCH 3, 2015 . . . The Joint Session Of Congress will welcome a new CHURCHILL who will come forward. And the REST will be history.
