Useless Idiots


On Thursday, President Joe Biden made a phone call to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu demanding an "immediate ceasefire" in Gaza, and threatening loss of U.S. support if Israel does not comply. Biden wants to cease fire when Israel is poised to destroy the terrorist organization, Hamas. This comes after Chuck Schumer on the Senate floor, last week called for a regime change in Israel to get rid of Netanyahu and put a more moderate leader in place who will immediately fold to Hamas’ demands. Biden wants Israel to stop fighting Hamas while Hamas is still launching missiles into Israel. Biden’s campaign co-chairman Senator Chris Coons said he wants the United States to put conditions on military aid to Israel. We couldn’t do an audit of the $100 billion we sent to Ukraine, but we are putting conditions on military aid to Israel, the one place where the aid is actually accomplishing the stated goal.


When the United States was attacked on 9/11 and 3,000 Americans were killed by the terrorist organization, Al Qaeda, the United States, almost immediately invaded Afghanistan. We spent trillions of dollars, lost over 4,000 soldiers, killed hundreds of thousands of Afghanistan citizens, in a war that lasted 20 years, and Joe Biden voted for that war. We also invaded Iraq and started a war there that lasted 11 years also killing hundreds of thousands of civilians, and Joe Biden voted for that war as well. He has continually endorsed the deaths of hundreds of thousands of civilians without a thought, in wars that did not achieve their goals, that lasted a combined 31 years, cost trillions of dollars, thousands of soldiers, and accomplished nothing.


But less than a year after Israel was attacked, and they are in position to accomplish their goal of destroying Hamas once, and for all, Biden and Schumer want them to stop when they’re on the 5-yard line about to score the game winning touchdown. The United States was in Afghanistan for 20 years, and when we pulled out, the Taliban took back over the country in a matter of days. Our only job was to obliterate the Taliban and we failed. At least, Israel has the wherewithal to finish the job.


None of this makes any sense unless you look back and examine the policies that Joe Biden was involved in. In 2015, as Vice President, the Obama administration signed the Iran nuclear deal which released billions of dollars to Iran for some dubious promises about slowing down their nuclear weapons programs. The critics of the deal warned that the billions of dollars that was released to Iran, would not go to help Iranians citizens or build infrastructure in the country, but it would be spent supporting terrorism. Who is the number one sponsor of Hamas? Iran. Who is the number one sponsor of Hezbollah? Iran.


When Biden took office, he doubled down on Obama’s policy, and signed a deal with Iran which allowed billions of dollars to be released to the Ayatollahs that would inevitably be used to sponsor more terrorism. In September 2023, Biden released $6 billion of frozen Iranian funds in exchange for 5 hostages, and everyone knew what that money would be spent on. Less than a month later, Iran sponsored the October 7 terrorist attack on Israel. October 7 never would have happened if Obama and Biden never signed those deals with Iran and released billions and billions of dollars to the number one state sponsor of terrorism, Iran. And now the United States is funding Israel’s response to the war that Hamas started that was backed by Iran who has been funded by Biden and Obama. Biden is funding both sides of this war, and he has the nerve to go to Benjamin Netanyahu and request a cease fire to a war that he helped start. It appears that Biden and the Democrats are siding with Iran and terrorists over Israel.


On Thursday, Senator Bernie Sanders stated that Hamas hiding among civilians is "perhaps, a part of the problem, but it's not the real problem." And that starvation in Gaza "is Israel's responsibility, not Hamas'." No, Bernie, Hamas using civilians as human shields is the problem in Gaza, and it is also a war crime, and everyone in the West should be coming to 100% support of Israel in their efforts to destroy these war criminals. And it is Hamas who is preventing the aid to get to the civilians in Gaza, not Israel. And Hamas is purposely making those civilians starve because they know that useful idiots like Bernie Sanders would use that to push to get Israel to stop fighting against Hamas. Bernie, you are more of a problem in Gaza than Israel is.


Also on Thursday, Secretary of State Antony Blinken tried to draw a moral equivalency between Israel and Hamas, warning that Israel is showing the same disregard for civilian life that Hamas has. He said, “Israel is a democracy; Hamas, a terrorist organization. Democracies place the highest value on human life, every human life. As it has been said, whoever saves a life, saves the entire world… That’s our strength. It’s what distinguishes us from terrorists like Hamas. If we lose that reverence for human life, we risk becoming indistinguishable from those we confront.” What he fails to understand is that the reason why Hamas is using civilians as human shields is because Israel has a high regard for human life and Hamas does not. If they both valued human life, then Hamas would not use human shields. If neither side valued human life, then human shields would not be effective. Human shields are only used and are effective when the side using them has no regard for human life, and their enemy has a high regard for human life. The blame always, 100% of the time falls on the side using human shields. There is no moral equivalency here. None.


If they are so concerned about the loss of human life, then why didn’t anyone in the Biden administration show any concern for civilian loss of life when Israel first responded to the October 7 attack, but now civilian lives are their only concern. Why is protecting civilian lives more important in April of 2024 than it was in October of 2023? Were those lives less valuable? Why isn’t Joe Biden asking Ukraine to negotiate a ceasefire with Russia to protect civilian lives there? President Volodymyr Zelensky's chief of staff said there will be no "compromises" with Russia despite the failures of the recent Ukrainian counteroffensive, and the Biden administration is supporting that hard stance.


Joe Biden did not seem to care about the deaths of civilians during the civil wars in Syria that the Obama administration helped to instigate. The United States dropped over 112,000 bombs on Syria and over 300,000 civilians were killed, and no one in the Obama administration, not even Joe Biden, voiced a concern about civilian loss of life.  Biden doesn’t care about civilians in Gaza, he cares about maintaining his power, so every decision and position he takes is for political expedience. I know he doesn’t care about civilian deaths because he doesn’t care about the deaths of 100,000 Americans from drug overdoses that his open border policy is exacerbating. If he reinstituted Trump’s border policies, overdose deaths would be cut in half, but he refuses because illegal immigration helps his reelection and his fellow Democrats.


Biden thinks this is just a game. Hamas hits Israel; Israel hits Hamas back, and then they both are supposed to retreat to their neutral corners, until Hamas hits Israel again and it starts all over again – rinse and repeat. If this war ends with Hamas still standing, still capable of committing future terrorist attacks – that they will inevitably commit – then every civilian who has died thus far, died in vain, then Israel should not have attacked Hamas in response the October 7 terrorist attack. Then Israel should just be a sitting duck in the Middle East waiting to be destroyed.


We have always been taught that there are good actors and bad actors in the world. Adolf Hitler is the bad actor, and Franklin Roosevelt would be considered the good actor. But increasingly, in world politics, the dichotomy is a little bit different. There are evil actors, and then there are not evil actors. There are the people in the world who are pure evil, and then there’s everybody else who’s trying to either avoid the evil or prevent the evil. This picture couldn’t be clearer than what is going on in Israel and Gaza today. There are evil actors, and then there are actors who are not evil.


Without a doubt, unquestionably, Hamas is the evil actor; Israel, on the other hand, is an actor that is not evil, but is merely trying to stop evil. They are not perfect; they’re going to make mistakes; they may cause some unattended consequences in their actions, but overall, they are not evil, and what they’re doing is trying to stop evil. Anybody who’s trying to conflate what Israel is doing right now in Gaza, to what Hamas did to Israel on October 7, doesn’t fully understand what evil actually is.


Israel is charged with the impossible task of destroying Hamas as Hamas is using civilians as human shields, and Israel must destroy them without causing one civilian casualty. That is the standard that certain people in this country and around the world are holding Israel to. And it is a standard that no other country involved in a war in the history of the world has ever been able to live up to. Bottom line is Israel’s doing a good thing. They are eliminating one of the most vicious and evil terrorist groups that are ever walked this planet. And they are not doing it for any other reason, then Hamas poses an imminent threat to Israel and Israel’s survival on a daily basis, as we saw on October 7.

JD, Thanks for an accurate, really brilliant review. The DemoRats, led by AOC, Sanders, Schumer, and of course his supreme hinass Brandon, are raining their vomit on our country to gain a few more Moslem votes. These DemoRats are pure EVIL!

At this juncture Netanyahu would be well advised to boldly appeal directly to the American people who are sick and tired of the farce that is the United Nations and foreign policy that refuses to confront the evil that is Islam i.e. withdraw from the Israel hating United Nations and make it clear that if the effort to provide Hamas and exit from the field is pressed, Israel will (threaten to?) sever diplomatic relations with the United States for cause…lack of moral and ethical clarity. Israel has everything to gain and nothing to lose by doing so.

 

How hard would it be to cite the number of resolutions and votes against Israel as compared to every other nation combined?…

“The man who refuses to judge, who neither agrees nor disagrees, who declares that there are no absolutes and believes that he escapes responsibility, is the man responsible for all the blood that is now spilled in the world…There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil… In any compromise between food and poison, it is only death that can win. In any compromise between good and evil, it is only evil that can profit.”                                                     Ayn Rand Atlas Shrugged
