Tammy Bruce on Sarah Palin India/Israel trip

Posted by iusbvision on March 21, 2011

The press in both India and Israel was very positive. No matter what you think about Sarah Palin this trip helped her and served her well. Her prepared comments were well done and policy substantive, which, as Tammy points out, explains the American elite media brownout on the coverage. The conference in India can be seen HERE. Transcript HERE.

Nigel Farage of the UKIP has had enough: Goes nuclear on corrupt EU officials

Posted by iusbvision on March 21, 2011

While most Americans are not aware of it, the EU has become expensive, wasteful, and more undemocratic.  It is becoming a regulatory leviathan rife with corruption and power hungry genuine Maoists and other communists rising to the top. I wish I could say I was exaggerating. The EU is becoming a mess and the discontent is on the rise.

This is a series of six short videos.

By the way, if you thought that Chris Christie is tough, wait till you see this guy.

The EU pushes for proposals and is trying to impose limits on sovereignty without a democratic process. They create offices and insert bureaucrats with power given to them that no one votes for and no one knows who they are. Many of which end up being former communist bloc apparatchiks. MEP Farage gets so upset in this video going after one of these new made up office holders that he gets a bit personal, but in Euro politics this is much more widely accepted. Notice how Farage directly insults certain leftists, they object, which gives him the excuse to remind them of the horrible names that they have called the opposition to the Lisbon Treaty. Irony has a special beauty, especially when it leads you to the front door of hypocrisy. Which leads Farage right back to the undemocratic ways that the EU operates. It is not always fun to watch someone get insulted, but I encourage you to get through this as the end wraps it all together quite well intellectually.

Bureaucracy vs Democracy

Untold millions are suffering for your EU State dream to continue…

Obama vs. Obama on War Justification

Posted by iusbvision on March 21, 2011

Remember this:

But I also know that Saddam poses no imminent and direct threat to the United States, or to his neighbors, that the Iraqi economy is in shambles, that the Iraqi military a fraction of its former strength, and that in concert with the international community he can be contained until, in the way of all petty dictators, he falls away into the dustbin of history.

Or this:

What I am opposed to is the attempt by political hacks like Karl Rove to distract us from a rise in the uninsured, a rise in the poverty rate, a drop in the median income – to distract us from corporate scandals and a stock market that has just gone through the worst month since the Great Depression.

UPDATE – Human Events has some fun:

UPDATE II –  Mona Charen Blasts Obama’s Hypocrisy

In the Democratic primary campaign of 2008, candidate Barack Obama scored points because he, unlike many Democrats, had opposed the Iraq War from the start. Though a state senator at the time of the 2002 congressional vote authorizing military action, Obama had delivered a speech to an anti-war rally in Chicago.

He said, “I don’t oppose all wars … What I am opposed to is a dumb war. What I am opposed to is a rash war. What I am opposed to is the cynical attempt by Richard Perle and Paul Wolfowitz and other armchair weekend warriors in this administration to shove their own ideological agendas down our throats, irrespective of the costs in lives lost and in hardships borne.”

Regarding the justifications for war with Iraq, state Sen. Obama was unpersuaded: “I suffer no illusions about Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal man. A ruthless man. A man who butchers his own people to secure his own power. He has repeatedly defied UN resolutions, thwarted U.N. inspection teams, developed chemical and biological weapons, and coveted nuclear capacity … But … Saddam poses no imminent and direct threat to the United States, or to his neighbors …”

As American forces join the war against Moammar Gadhafi, the nation is entitled to an explanation. How is the case for war against Gadhafi smarter (remember, Obama is only against “dumb” wars) or less “ideological” or more prudent than that for war against Saddam Hussein?

Certainly, with an army of only 50,000, Gadhafi represents far less of a threat to his neighbors or to us than did Saddam, who commanded an army estimated at 350,000. As for humanitarian concerns, what Gadhafi is doing to the rebels in Libya is exactly what Saddam did to his domestic enemies, but on a reduced scale. As Obama himself said, Saddam was “a ruthless man … who butchers his own people to secure his power.” Yet that didn’t justify a war, state Sen. Obama told us.

Sen. Obama did not believe that Saddam posed a danger to the United States or to his neighbors — though he had attacked or invaded three of his neighbors: Iran, Kuwait, and Israel. Yet Gadhafi has hardly ranged beyond his own borders.
