We will get to the title of this post soon enough but I wanted to also bring to your attention what the State Department recently did. As a side bar, having had quite a bit of experience working with the Wimplomats of the State Department, they have this concept that THEY run the United States and everyone else in government is merely an inconvenient nuisance. I thought I'd just throw that out there. To see a larger rendition of the picture posted, feel free to browse the SR Gallery page under the section The Troops. It reads as follows: DIPLOMACY: The Art of Saying, "Good Doggy" Until Your Sniper Gets The Range". As a once-upon-a-time-operative, my take on Diplomacy was as follows and, you can indeed quote me: "Diplomacy serves one purpose and one purpose only. It delays the inevitable". Diplomacy does not nor will it ever work. In the long run, diplomacy kills more people than it helps.
"State Department Criticizes China on Human Rights, Contradicting Hillary’s Soft Stance", from Amy Proctor:
In stark contrast to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s softer remarks on China’s human rights, the U.S. State Department report on Wednesday had sharp criticism for the eastern superpower over rights violations ranging from religious repression to extrajudicial killings.
The report, which was mainly drafted during President George W. Bush’s administration, covers 2008. It noted a spike in rights repression around the time of the August Beijing Olympics, including the massive crackdown on Tibetan freedom protesters.
“The government of China’s human rights record remained poor and worsened in some areas,” the 2008 Country Reports on Human Rights Practices states, according to CNN.
In response to the heavy criticism, China on Thursday reacted angrily, calling the accusations groundless and charging Washington of interfering in the country’s internal affairs. [...]
Oh, my! Interfering in the country's internal affairs? I thought that all through the Bush Administration interfering in internal affairs was a bad thing. Then why was it OK for Obama to approve of and sanction Shari'a Law in seven States of Pakistan and putting into place an Al Qaeda terrorist as President of Somalia? Smells like one more example of DNC Double Standards to me.
So, Hillary's trip to China as the unconstitutional Secretary of State has resulted in an international incident complete with sabre rattling. Good job. On the heels of that, we have American Jews saying things like this now:
"I am very surprised, frankly, at this statement from the United States government and from the secretary of state," said Mortimer Zuckerman, publisher of the New York Daily News and member of the NYC Jewish Community Relations Council.
"I liked her a lot more as a senator from New York," Assemblyman Dov Hikind, D-Brooklyn, said. "Now, I wonder as I used to wonder who the real Hillary Clinton is." [...]
Where have these people been hiding? What statement was Mortimer Zuckerman referring to? It was the statement, and I paraphrase, "Israel! Get on the schtik and behave yourselves and calm down. Get your butts in gear and rebuild Gaza that you destroyed, or else!". Now, that isn't exactly what she said - she used what is known as poli-speak to get that exact message across.
Duane Lester says that we Conservatives are trying to hold back a wave of "I told you so" type of retorts and I am sure that was stated in a tongue-in-cheek manner because most assuredly, I am not holding that back one bit. Feel free to check out my Anti-Hillary page on this web site for hundreds of "I told you so" type of pieces posted there.
[...] Seriously though, are you kidding me? These folks are surprised that a Clinton said one thing when trying to get elected and did another when in office? Are they new to this game?
Well, not everyone was surprised by her move:
"Hillary had Mrs. Arafat here and she invited Mrs. Arafat for lunch when she was the first lady," added Babak Chafe of Great Neck. "She is pro-Palestinian 100 percent, really. Of course, we always knew it."
We knew it too. Now, could you perhaps tell your Jewish friends to stop voting for the left. They don’t have their best interests in mind. [END]
Yes. We did know it before and nothing has changed our minds. We are merely perplexed how the Democrat Party Culture of Lies and Deceit manages to sway the feeble-minded - or not.
From Gateway Pundit: " Jewish Leaders Stunned By Hillary's Attacks On Israel"
I will never understand why the Jews in America continually vote and support the very people that screw them over at every opportunity.
[...] Clinton's decision to hammer Israel comes as the Clintons and President Barack Obama are planning to give the Palestinians $900 million toward the rebuilding of Gaza in the wake of the Israeli offensive that was sparked by Hamas rocket fire. [...]
A bone of contention this is indeed. Why are we sending known terrorists millions of American tax dollars so they can buy more weapons? We already know that the terrorists will NOT rebuild except for a meager and pathetic showing. They will use this money to send to Iran so they can get bigger and better weapons to kill more Jews in Israel more efficiently. Good job Obama. Got Muslim roots do you?
