(Roundup) Sarah Palin’s 5-State Blitz – April 24 – 27

Posted by Dr. Fay on April 30, 2014

Governor Palin spoke at 5 events in 5 different states from Thursday of last week through Sunday of this week (4 days).  A veritable  marathon!  No wonder the haters are coming out in force attempting to discredit her this week!

On Thursday, April 24, Governor Palin, Senator Ted Cruz, and Senator Mike Lee campaigned for T. W. Shannon at the Liberty Rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz stump for T.W. Shannon at rally

“I’ve heard you can tell a lot about a man by the friends he keeps,” Republican U.S. Senate candidate T.W. Shannon said. “What do you think of my friends?”

The large and enthusiastic crowd at the Green Country Event Center in east Tulsa liked them a lot.

Those at the campaign rally shouted their approval when one of Shannon’s friends, Sen. Mike Lee of Utah, said he was glad to be back in the United States after spending time in Washington, D.C.

The crowd roared when Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas asked if “we can abolish the IRS” and “repeal every word of Obamacare.”

It turned giddy over the appearance of former vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin, wearing a sequinned University of Oklahoma T-shirt and talking a mile a minute.

[…]

Palin brought energy and personality to the stage — and an us-versus-them attitude.

“Surely,” she said, “there are more of us than there are of them.”

Ultimately, though, the stage was Shannon’s, and he made good use of it. An engaging speaker who hits all the right notes for his target audience, he added onto his friends’ populist chorus.

“My fellow patriots, our freedoms are under assault, but it stops today,” he said. “Let’s reduce the size of government today.”

April 24 · Edited

Thank you to everyone who joined Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and me in Tulsa to rally for T.W. Shannon for Senate. T.W. has got a great future ahead of him as a new voice for conservative action in D.C. We need this dynamic leader in Washington!

Also, a big thank you to Burn Co. Barbecue in Tulsa for providing the great grub! Their BBQ ribs clobber moose meat. I must admit. Heavenly. Along with T.W. Shannon who’s going to show Washington some Oklahoma thunder, Burn Co. is another reason Oklahoma can be so proud!

On Friday morning, April 25, Governor Palin campaigned with Senators Cruz and Lee and Kay Orr at a rally for Ben Sasse at Scout’s Rest in Nebraska.

From an article by Tony Lee at Breitbart.com:

Palin, Lee, Cruz Campaign for Nebraska’s Ben Sasse

A thousand Nebraskans turned out at 10 AM on Friday for a rally for conservative Senate candidate Ben Sasse that featured former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Mike Lee (R-UT).

Sasse, the anti-Obamacare candidate who has surged in the race, also rallied with former Nebraska Governor Kay Orr, the first female Republican governor, at Scout’s Rest in North Platte, where Orr brought President Ronald Reagan in 1987 to campaign on her behalf.

According to the Omaha World-Herald, Palin said, “What we need in the Senate are folks who are willing to not just go along to get along. We need the fighters.”

“That’s why I’m here for Ben Sasse,” Palin said. “He is the right person for this job.’’

Palin, Lee, and Cruz on Thursday were in Oklahoma to back T.W. Shannon as a candidate who would stand up to the Washington establishment, and they noted that Sasse would be another politician who would provide conservatives like Cruz and Lee some reinforcements in Washington against the permanent political class.

“I’m here supporting Ben Sasse because I believe he has the courage to look in the eyes of the party bosses in Washington and say, ‘I don’t work for you, I work for the people of Nebraska,’’’ Cruz said, according to the World-Herald. 

Sasse’s opponent, Shane Osborne, as Breitbart News has reported, has the endorsement of Senators John McCain (R-AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC). And Sasse compared his opponent’s establishment endorsements to Lee’s and Cruz’s endorsements for him.

Palin, who has also endorsed Pete Ricketts for governor in the state, has been influential in Nebraska even when she has not had as many allies as she does in supporting Sasse. As Breitbart News reported, Palin showed how influential her endorsement is in Nebraska when she put Sen. Deb Fischer in the Senate in 2012 with a Facebook post: 

During the 2012 election cycle in Nebraska, the Republican establishment spent millions backing Jon Bruning, while Washington’s conservative establishment, including Freedom Works, spent millions backing Don Stenberg. But after Palin wrote a 135-word Facebook post to endorse Deb Fischer, the then-unknown candidate suddenly had “momentum, buzz, and name identification” and rocketed to the top of the polls en route to wins in the primary and general election.

Palin said that Sasse would be “a great advocate for conservative action in the Senate!”

“He’s just the sort of problem solver we need to take on Obamacare and provide a conservative alternative to the challenges facing America!” she said.

Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz rally 1,000 for Ben Sasse in North Platte

NORTH PLATTE, Neb. — Two Republican rock stars and a cast of backup singers brought their act to Nebraska Friday for U.S. Senate candidate Ben Sasse as the state’s GOP primary heads for a wild finale.

Tea Party favorites Sarah Palin, a former vice presidential candidate, and Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas rallied a crowd of about 1,000 to support Sasse in the May 13 primary.

“What we need in the Senate are folks who are willing to not just go along to get along. We need the fighters,” Palin said. “That’s why I’m here for Ben Sasse. He is the right person for this job.”

The band of politicos staged their show at Buffalo Bill State Historical Park, against the backdrop of colorful western showman William F. Cody’s cavernous horse barn. Sharing the spotlight were Sen. Mike Lee of Utah and former Nebraska Gov. Kay Orr.

Sasse said he was grateful to have their support during the final days of the campaign.

[…]

Palin, a former Alaska governor, said Sasse is the clear conservative choice in the election.

Cody established the North Platte ranch in 1878. It was here that he created his Wild West Shows that toured the United States and Europe. Orr was governor when she hosted President Ronald Reagan at Scout’s Rest Ranch in 1987.

Palin’s endorsements are valued by conservative candidates.

Earlier this month, she endorsed Nebraska GOP gubernatorial candidate Pete Ricketts. Two years ago, she endorsed Deb Fischer in the final week of a hotly contested GOP primary race in Nebraska. Fischer went on to win the Senate seat. Besides Sasse, Palin has endorsed Senate hopefuls recently in Georgia, Iowa, Minnesota, Ohio and Oklahoma.

Sasse said Palin — who wore a red light sweatshirt with a jeweled Nebraska “N” to the rally — arrived in North Platte on Thursday wearing Oklahoma Sooners shirt after campaigning in Tulsa. Sasse joked that he considered postponing the event to investigate her character.

Sasse said Cruz was supposed to wear a Husker shirt, too, “but he didn’t keep his word.” At that, Cruz flashed a Texas “Hook ’em, Horns” hand sign to boos and laughter from the crowd.

Thank you to everyone who joined Kay Orr, Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and me this morning in historic North Platte, Nebraska, to rally for Ben Sasse.

Special thanks to the gracious people at La Quinta Inn for their hospitality and delicious carrot cake cupcakes and to the Espresso Shoppe in North Platte for their awesome coffee!

On Friday evening, April 25, Governor Palin spoke at the Baldwin County Republican Party’s fundraising dinner  in Orange Beach, Alabama.

In speech to Alabama Republicans, Sarah Palin blasts Obama and ‘RINOs’ alike

By Brendan Kirby | bkirby@al.com

on April 25, 2014 at 10:38 PM, updated April 25, 2014 at 10:59 PM

RANGE BEACH, Alabama – Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin offered plenty of red-meat attacks on President Barack Obama during an appearance at the Baldwin County Republican Party’s annual fundraising dinner Friday, but she did not spare her own party.

Palin, who rocketed to political stardom after presidential candidate John McCain tapped her as his running mate in 2008, expressed nearly as much exasperation with the GOP establishment as she did with Democrats.

She referenced her own upbringing in an Alaskan hunting family in declaring that she would fight politicians that conservatives deride as “Republicans in Name Only” during intra-party squabbles.

“I’m not afraid at all to go on a little RINO hunt,” she said.

Since her unsuccessful bid for vice president, Palin has devoted a great deal of energy toward supporting like-minded Republicans in primary battles, whether they be incumbents or challengers. Along the way, she has become one of the top draws on the speaking circuit.

Baldwin Republican Chairman Matt Simpson said it was a big coup to get Palin. He declined to say how much the party paid for her appearance and said the former governor agreed to an interview only with Yellowhammer News, a conservative blog in Alabama.

Simpson said about 500 people attended the speech at The Wharf in Orange Beach. The audience included most of the county’s Republican leaders, along with the chairman of the state GOP, U.S. Rep. Bradley Byrne, R-Fairhope, Republican leaders from the rest of the state and even a U.S. Senate candidate for Louisiana.

[…]

Turning serious, Palin questioned the commitment of some Republicans to repealing the Affordable Care Act, Obama’s signature legislative achievement.

“They’re giving a lot of lip service to it, but it’s not happening,” she said.

The reason, Palin suggested, is that some Republicans have concluded they are better off raising campaign contributions off of the issue and leaving the law alone. She said too few Republicans in Congress supported efforts by Sens. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Mike Lee, R-Utah, to shut down the federal government in order to force the defunding of the health reform law.

“They left some of our guys out there alone,” she said. “Worse than that, they joined the lapdog media” in condemning Lee and Cruz.

Palin urged Republicans to “send reinforcements” to help tea party Republicans in Congress. She paraphrased a famous Obama quote in crediting the tea party for engineering the Republican takeover of the House in 2010.

“Republican establishment, you didn’t build that – the tea party did that,” she said.

Referencing big Republican electoral gains in Alabama since 2010, Palin held up the state as a model for the nation.

“Alabama really is the picture of this – especially Baldwin County,” she said.

Palin had plenty of fire for Obama and the Democrats, too, starting with the “Orwellian boondoggle” of Obamacare.

She blasted the administration over the National Security Agency spying scandal, the murder of the American ambassador in Benghazi, Libya, and Obama’s response to Russian aggression in Ukraine.

“We are going to do all we can to stop Barack Obama’s fundamental transformation of the most exceptional country in the world,” she said, later adding that his policies represent a “depression on the soul of America.”

Palin got her biggest applause and a standing ovation for her defense of America’s veterans. She decried cuts to veterans’ health benefits and Obama’s proposed defense cuts.

“They’re the ones who should be getting the free ‘Obamacare,’ not the prisoners,” she said.

Kirby also wrote  about members of ‘Sarah Palin’s Earthquake Movement’ from around the country who filled 3 tables at the rally.

[…]

Members said the speech was the first Palin event they attended as a group but that members have gone to other appearances individually.

“It was mostly to show we support her,” said Sandra Bailey, a New Mexico woman who founded the group.

Organizations said the group has 2,300 members hailing from all 50 states and Canada.

“We support who she endorses,” said Linda Armstrong.

Wayne Mazza, a member from Pennsylvania said Palin’s great record as mayor of Wasilla and governor of Alaska is the second-biggest secret in American politics behind only President Barrack Obama’s questionable associations before his election as president in 2008.

Mazza said Palin’s little-known accomplishments as governor include leaving office with a huge surplus and her veto of 271 “frivolous spending bills.”

On Saturday, April 26, Governor Palin spoke at the NRA’s ‘Stand Up and Fight’ rally in Indianapolis.

Neil W. McCabe  

The former governor of Alaska, who ran for vice president in 2008, gave a rollicking address at the NRA’s April 26 “Stand Up and Fight” rally at its 2014 annual meeting held at Indianapolis’ packed Lucus Oil stadium.

[…]

Palin mixed humor and rhetoric to whip the crowd in a cheering frenzy.

The biggest lines of the speech were in her discussion of foreign policy and terrorists.

The Alaskan said President Barack Obama’s foreign policy has it backwards when it pokes our allies in the eyes and coddles our adversaries.

Too often we worry about hurting the feelings of people looking to kill us and we use fuzzy language, such as Obama’s description of the 2009 Fort Hood shooting by an agent of jihad wearing an Army uniform as “workplace violence” not terrorism.

“We need to put the fear of God into our enemies,” she said.

“If I was in charge,” she said. “They would know that waterboarding is how we baptize terrorists!”

Janet Ricks loves Sarah Palin.

She said she has always watched Palin on TV since the former Alaska governor stepped into the spotlight as the GOP’s vice-presidential candidate in 2008. When she found out that Palin will be in town for the annual National Rifle Association convention, Ricks didn’t miss the opportunity.

The Francesville resident is one of thousands of people who filled Lucas Oil Stadium Saturday night during the NRA Stand and Fight rally. Palin and Oliver North, a political commentator, author and former Marine Corps lieutenant colonel, were the high-profile guest speakers.

Palin, who was met with a standing ovation, spoke mostly about the importance of the Second Amendment and why gun control advocates are wrong.

“It’s not just the Second Amendment they’re attacking,” she said, but also the country’s “foundational values.”

She also restated a joke commonly seen in bumper stickers and T-shirts.

“Yeah, I carry a gun because a cop is too heavy,” Palin said amid cheers.

Ricks, who came to Indianapolis with her husband and three other couples, said she was excited to see Palin in person, briefly and from afar.

“The thing that she said the most is that the American people are finally starting to wake up and regain the freedom that has been slowly taken away from us,” Ricks said, referring to Second Amendment rights. “(Palin) couldn’t say anything I wouldn’t agree with.”

Chris Stanley, an NRA life member, said Palin’s brief speech underscored what the majority of Americans already believe.

“She reiterated the point of the Second Amendment and the constitution and what the founding fathers wanted,” the Westfield resident said.

“The eyes of the nation are on her,” Palin added referencing Ernst’s recent TV ad highlighting her experience castrating hog saying she knows how to cut pork in Washington.  “Whoa, no one is going to push her around.  She is not going to be co-opted, and that is so important in Washington today because it happens so often.. too often we send them there and they get co-opted and we get so disappointed.”  Palin said it got people thinking and thanked Ernst for that and for being unique and courageous for running it.

Well that was a great experience in Iowa yesterday with an amazing group of “mama grizzlies” rallying to support U.S. Senate candidate Joni Ernst! Thank you to everyone who joined Lt. Governor Kim Reynolds, Senator Deb Fischer, and Governor Kay Orr at this “Heels On, Gloves Off” Rally. Special thanks to ShePAC for hosting the event and for fighting to Support, Honor, and Elect conservative women like Joni! It’s imperative we work together to send this soldier, mom, and America’s favorite Iowa pork farmer to Washington to make the big spenders squeal.

Also, thank you to our guys – Gail Ernst, Bruce Fischer, and Todd Palin – who jumped in with great help to support this worthy conservative candidate. Please join the team that will send Joni to the U.S. Senate to get America back on track.

Palin: “If You Control Arms You Control The People”

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on April 28, 2014

Gov. Sarah Palin spoke to the attendees of the NRA Convention in Indianapolis this past weekend and she had some strong words in defense of our 2nd amendment as well as strong words for terrorists:   “If I were in charge they’d know that water boarding is how we baptize terrorists.”

 


h/t iizthatiiz

Predictably so, the “baptize” comment has caused heads to explode but what do you find more offending, a towel and some water used to get vital information or the beheading of an American citizen?   Gov. Palin had this to say in response to those critical remarks.  From Facebook:

Actions to stop terrorists who’d utterly annihilate America and delight in massacring our innocent children? Darn right I’d do whatever it takes to foil their murderous jihadist plots – including waterboarding. Whatever one thinks of my one-liner at the NRA rally about treating evil terrorists the way they deserve to be treated to prevent the death of innocent people, it’s utterly absurd for MSNBC to suggest that I could put our beloved troops in harm’s way, but we’ve come to expect the absurd from that failing network. If you want to talk about what really harms our troops, let’s talk about politicians who gut our military’s budgets, or a president whose skewed budgetary priorities slash military benefits, or an administration that puts our vets on endless waiting lists for care that comes too late to help those who’ve paid the price for our freedom, or those who break bread with those who think it makes no difference how our military heroes died in Benghazi or anywhere else trying to protect America. Those actions are a heck of a lot more harmful than declaring an appropriate message our enemies should receive. If some overly sensitive wusses took offense, remember the First Amendment doesn’t give you a right not to be offended. Perhaps hypocritical folks who only want Freedom of Speech to apply to those who agree with their liberal agenda might want to consider that the evil terrorists who were the brunt of my one-liner would be the first to strip away ALL our rights if given the chance. That’s why we do whatever we can to prevent them from killing innocent people. And for that, we should NEVER apologize. Good Lord, critics… buck up or stay in the truck. And if you love freedom, thank our troops! Thank our vets! And thank those who have the brains to support them and the guts to defend what they have earned!

(Updated) May We Never Forget: Holocaust Remembrance Day 2014 – Yom Hashoah

Posted by Dr. Fay on April 27, 2014

Holocaust Remembrance Day, which began at sundown tonight, is the day each year when Israel remembers the 6 million Jews murdered by Nazi Germany.   May we never forget!

YnetNews.com reports:

Israel marks Holocaust Remembrance Day

The State of Israel marked Holocaust Remembrance Day on Sunday evening with ceremonies and events throughout the country, honoring the memory of six million Jews murdered by the Nazis.

The Holocaust Remembrance Day opening ceremony took place at the Warsaw Ghetto Square in the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem and President Shimon Peres and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu both attended and spoke, saying Israel and Jews still face existential threats, even in 2014.

An additional ceremony was held at the Massuah Institute for Holocaust Studies in Kibbutz Tel Yitzhak. and was attended by dignitaries including Justice Minister Tzippi Livni and IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz.

Holocaust Remembrance Day is dedicated to honoring the memory of the Holocaust inflicted on the Jewish people by the Nazis and their accomplices and to acts of heroism and defiance against the German forces. This year’s focus is “1944: From Extermination to Liberation” – the Jews’ situation exactly 70 years ago.

Speaking at the Holocaust Remembrance Day, President Shimon Peres said: “The victims are alive in our hearts. Each one of us carries in his heart the grief of our brothers who were exterminated, as (we remember also) the greatness of the establishment of Israel.”

Peres at ceremony (Photo: Gil Yohanan)

Peres further said: “We mustn’t ignore any type of anti-Semitic phenomena, any desecration of a synagogue or smashing of a tombstone. We must also not overlook the rise of extreme right-wing parties with neo-Nazi leanings that are a danger for everyone and a warning for every nation.

“The state of Israel is the deterrent against the attempt to carry out another Holocaust. A strong Israel is our answer to the terror of anti-Semitism.”

Netanyahu: Today we are strong

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wondered whether the world had learned the lessons from the Holocaust.

“Why didn’t they see the truth? They didn’t want to deal with the consequences. They hoped to avoid a conflict at any price, and that’s how they laid the ground for the worst war in human history.

“They assumed the hateful rhetoric was meant for political purposes in domestic consumption. The price of the illusions, of the wishes, was heavy. By the time Western leaders decided to act, their nations had paid dearly.”

Netanyahu attempted to connect the memorial day to current events, and slammed Iran’s nuclear program: “Iran is developing nuclear weapons. Today, as in the past, there are those who rationalize Iranian actions. Today, as in the past, those who think this are deluding themselves. This time too, the truth will lead the way.

“Iran wants a deal in which the sanctions are lifted, but the nuclear capabilities remain. A deal that allows Iran to remain on the threshold of nuclear power will leave the entire world on the precipice.

“I call on world powers to stand firm on the demand Iran dismantle its nuclear program.Today we do not fear making our case to presidents and prime ministers. Unlike during the Holocaust, when we were defenseless, today we have the power to defend ourselves.”

[…]

Remembering the past

On Monday morning, a two-minute siren will be sounded at 10 am, and immediately after that, a wreath-laying ceremony will commence at the Warsaw Ghetto Square in Yad Vashem. At 10:30 am the reading names of the Holocaust victims will begin. It will be followed by the main remembrance ceremony at Ohel Yizkor at 1 pm.

Tel Aviv will hold a remembrance ceremony at the Cameri Theater, titled “1944 – Jews t the Finish Line, From Extermination to Liberation”. The ceremony will be screened live via a wide screen at the Tel Aviv Performing Arts Center.

A ‘Singing and Remembering’ event will take place at 9 pm on Sunday at the Gerard Behar Center in Jerusalem and at 08 am Monday, the ceremony “1944 – On the Brink of Liberation” will take place at Safra Square in the capital.

The main Remembrance Rally to mark the end of the Holocaust Memorial Day commemorations will be held on Monday at 7:30 pm at Kibbutz Yad Mordechai in the presence of Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, Opposition leader Isaac Herzog, IDF senior commanders and Hungary’s ambassador to Israel.

International Holocaust Remembrance Day is marked worldwide on Jan. 27, the date of the liberation of the Auschwitz death camp. Israel’s annual Holocaust memorial day coincides with the Hebrew date of the Warsaw ghetto uprising.

6 survivors to represent 6 million

Six Holocaust survivors, representing the six million victims, will light torches in memory of people who did not survive at the hands of the Nazis, at the main ceremony at the Warsaw Ghetto Square in the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum.

The holocaust survivors to light the torches are Asher Aud, Zvi Michaeli, Dita Kraus, Chayim Herzl, Hinda Tasman and Itzchak Biran.

The complete transcript of Prime Minister Netanyahu can be found here.  Here is an excerpt:

All the exhibition rooms here are filled with such heartbreaking stories. When we left Yad Vashem, I told the Canadian Prime Minister that the primary duty of the Prime Minister of Israel is to ensure that there will be no more memorial sites like this, that there will never be another Holocaust.

I have said many times in this place that we must identify an existential threat in time and take action in time. Tonight, on the eve of Holocaust Remembrance Day, I ask myself: why, in the years preceding the Holocaust, did the overwhelming majority of world leaders and Jewish leaders fail to detect the danger in time? In retrospect, all the warning signs were there: the strengthening of the Nazi regime year after year; the horrific anti-Semitic propaganda which grew stronger with each passing month; and the murderous attacks on Jews which began as a trickle and transformed into a huge wave.

In retrospect, there is a direct line connecting the racial laws and the gas chambers.

Very few world leaders understood the enormity of the threat to humanity posed by Nazism. Churchill was one of them. Few among our leaders, primarily Jabotinsky, warned against the imminent destruction facing our nation, but they were widely criticized and their warnings were disregarded, and they were treated as merchants of doom and war mongers.

So I ask: How is it possible that so many people failed to understand the reality? The bitter and tragic truth is this: it is not that they did not see it. They did not want to see it. And why did they choose not to see the truth? Because they did not want to face the consequences of that truth.

During the 1930′s, when the Nazis were gaining momentum, the influence of the trauma of the First World War was still fresh. Twenty years earlier, the people of the West experienced a terrible trench war, a war which claimed the lives of 16 million people. Therefore, the leaders of the West operated on the basis of one axiom: avoid another confrontation at any cost, and thus they laid the foundation for the most terrible war in human history. This axiom of avoiding conflict at any cost, this axiom was adopted not only by the leaders. The people themselves, primarily the educated ones, shared it too.

In 1933, for example, the year Hitler rose to power, there was a meeting of the Oxford University student organization – an institute from which generations of British leaders had emerged. Following a heated debate, the students voted for a resolution stating that they “would under no circumstances fight for their King and Country”. This resolution passed by an overwhelming majority only ten days after Hitler entered the Chancellery of Germany.

And believe me: that message reverberated in Berlin.

This example illustrates the West’s feeble attitude vis-à-vis the rise of Nazism.

Month after month, year after year, more and more information was received in London, Paris and Washington regarding the capabilities and intentions of the Nazi regime. The picture was becoming clear to everybody. However, “they have eyes, but cannot see; they have ears, but cannot hear.”

When you refuse to accept reality as it is, you can deny it. And this is precisely what the leaders of the West did. They dismissed the murderous Nazi rhetoric as internal German politics; they downplayed the seriousness of the danger of the military build-up of the Nazis, claiming that it was the result of the natural will of a proud nation, that it should be taken into consideration, that it should be accepted.

The reality was clear, but it was cloaked in a bubble of illusions. This bubble was burst by the stealth attack by the Nazis on Europe. And the price of the illusion and desire was very heavy because by the time the leaders of the West finally acted, their people paid a terrible price. World War II claimed the lives not of 16 million people, the unimaginable number of victims during World War I, but of 60 million, including one third of our people, who were butchered by the Nazi beast.

Citizens of Israel, my brothers and sisters,

Has the world learned from the mistakes of the past? Today, we are again facing clear facts and a tangible threat.

Iran is calling for our destruction. It is developing nuclear weapons. This is the reason it is building underground bunkers for the enrichment of uranium. This is the reason it is establishing a plutonium-producing heavy water facility. This is the reason it continues to develop inter-continental ballistic missiles that can carry nuclear warheads to threaten the entire world.

Today, just like then, there are those who dismiss Iran’s extreme rhetoric as one that serves domestic purposes. Today, just like then, there are those who view Iran’s nuclear ambitions as the result of the natural will of a proud nation – a will that should be accepted.

And just like then, those who make such claims are deluding themselves. They are making an historic mistake.

We are currently in the midst of fateful talks between Iran and the world powers. This time too, the truth is evident to all: Iran is seeking an agreement that will lift the sanctions and leave it as a nuclear threshold state, in other words, the capability to manufacture nuclear weapons within several months at most.

Iran wants a deal that will eliminate the sanctions and leave their nuclear capabilities intact. Such a deal, which will enable Iran to be a nuclear threshold state, will bring the entire world to the threshold of an abyss.

I hope that the lessons of the past will be learned and that the desire to avoid confrontation at any cost will not lead to a deal that will exact a much heavier price in the future.

I call on the leaders of the world powers to insist on a full dismantling of Iran’s capability to manufacture nuclear weapons, and to persist until this goal is achieved.

In any event, the people of Israel are strong. When faced with an existential threat, the situation of our people today is entirely different than it was during the Holocaust.

Today, we have a sovereign Jewish state. As Prime Minister of Israel, I do not hesitate to speak the truth to the world, even when faced with so many blind eyes and deaf ears. It is not only my right, it is my duty. It is a duty I am mindful of at all times, but particularly on this day, in this place.

On the eve of the Holocaust, there were Jews who avoided crying out to the world’s nations out of fear that the fight against the Nazis would become a Jewish problem. Others believed that if they kept silent, the danger would pass. The kept silent and the disaster struck. Today, we are not afraid to speak the truth to world leaders, as is written in our Bible: “I will speak of your testimonies before kings, and I will not be ashamed…listen, for I will speak noble thoughts; the opening of my lips will reveal right things.”

Unlike our situation during the Holocaust, when we were like leaves on the wind, defenseless, now we have great power to defend ourselves, and it is ready for any mission. This power rests on the courage and ingenuity of the soldiers of the IDF and our security forces. It is this power that enabled us, against all odds, to build the State of Israel.

Look at the remarkable achievements we have made in our 66 years of independence. All of us together – scientists, writers, teachers, doctors, entrepreneurs, employees, artists, farmers – the entire people of Israel, each one in their own field – together we have built a glorious state. The spirit of the people of Israel is supreme, our accomplishments tremendous. Seven decades after the destruction of the Holocaust, the State of Israel is a global wonder.

On this day, on behalf of the Jewish people, I say to all those who sought to destroy us, to all those who still seek to destroy us: you have failed and you will fail.

The State of Israel is stronger than ever. It is a state that seeks peace with all its neighbors – a state with a will of iron to ensure the future of its people.

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is also observing  the 2014 Days of Remembrance from April 27 – May 4 .  This video can be found on their website and is well worth watching all the way to the end.

The 2014 Days of Remembrance theme, Confronting the Holocaust: American Responses, marks the anniversaries of two seminal events in Holocaust history that raise questions about the responses of the United States to the widespread persecution and mass murder of the Jews of Europe. What can we learn today from American action and inaction in the face of the refugee crisis in the spring of 1939 and the deportation of Hungarian Jews five years later?

From the 60 Minutes website:

Sir Nicholas Winton didn’t intend to save children from the Nazis when he went to Prague on the eve of World War II, but he had a burning desire to help refugees who were crowded around the city. In the end, with the help of a little trickery, Winton pulled off one of biggest humanitarian acts of the war when he helped arrange the safe transport of 669 mostly Jewish kids from Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia to Britain. Bob Simon speaks to Winton, now 104, and to some of the people he saved, on the next edition of 60 Minutes, Sunday, April 27 at 7 p.m. ET/PT.

Jack WV informs us that Sir Nicholas Winton will turn 105 on May 19th!

Here are excerpts from  the transcript of the 60 Minutes documentary about Sir Nicholas Winton’s efforts.  The complete transcript can be found here.

Saving the children

Briton Nicholas Winton helped save hundreds of mostly Jewish children from Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia on the eve of the war

The following script is from “Saving the Children” which aired on April 27, 2014. Bob Simon is the correspondent. Harry Radliffe and Vanessa Fica, producers.

Now, an extraordinary story from the Second World War — a humanitarian story that didn’t come to light for decades. It concerns a young Londoner named Nicholas Winton who went to Prague, and ended up saving the lives of 669 children, mostly Jews, from almost certain death. His story begins at the end of 1938, with Europe on the brink of war. In Germany, violence against Jews was escalating and the infamous Munich Agreement paved the way for Hitler’s armies to march unopposed into Czechoslovakia.

In London, Nicholas Winton had been following events and knew that refugees fleeing the Nazis were in dire straits. He went to Czechoslovakia to see if there was anything he could do to help. What’s strange is that for almost 50 years, he hardly told anyone about what he had accomplished and for 50 years, the children knew nothing about who had saved them or how.

We begin on October 1st, 1938. Nazi troops marched into the Sudetenland, the German-speaking region of Czechoslovakia. Prague, the Czech capital was flooded with desperate people, trying to escape. A fortunate few were able to send their children abroad. These parents, mostly Czech Jews, sensed war was coming and wanted to get their children out. By chance, a cameraman filmed a man holding a boy, a 29-year-old Londoner. His name: Nicholas Winton.

[…]

Winton set up a small organization with one aim: to get as many kids out, as fast as possible.

David Silberklang: People started coming to him in increasing numbers. He didn’t have time in the day to meet them all. He’d work till 2:00 in the morning; get up early in the morning to meet the next people as more and more were coming saying, “Take my child. Take my child.”

By the time he returned to London, he had a list of hundreds of children and set out to convince British authorities to take him seriously. He did it by taking stationary from an established refugee organization, adding “Children’s Section,” and making himself chairman.

Nicholas Winton: So that eventually they had to adopt me.

Bob Simon: So, in fact, you managed to do what you did through a little deception, a little smoke and mirrors?

Nicholas Winton: Yes, to a certain extent, yes.

Bob Simon: It required quite a bit of ingenuity.

Nicholas Winton: No, it just required a printing press to get the notepaper printed.

The “Children’s Section” operated from a tiny office in central London. Winton’s mother was in charge. The staff were all volunteers. During the day, Winton worked as a stockbroker. Evenings, he wrestled with the British bureaucracy.

Bob Simon: Did you approach any other countries to take some of the children?

Nicholas Winton: The Americans. But the Americans wouldn’t take any, which was a pity. We could’ve got a lot more out.

Winton had written President Roosevelt, asking the U.S. to take in more children. A minor official at the U.S. Embassy in London wrote back — the U.S. was “unable” to help. Britain agreed to accept the children, but only if Winton found families willing to take them in. So he circulated the children’s pictures to advertise them. But even after a family chose a child, British authorities were slow in issuing travel documents. So Winton started having them forged. He also spread some money around.

Nicholas Winton: Took a bit of blackmail on my part.

Bob Simon: You were indulging in blackmail and forgery to get the children out?

Nicholas Winton: I’ve never heard it put like that before.

Bob Simon: But you seem to be enjoying it.

Nicholas Winton: It worked. That’s the main thing.

The first 20 children left Prague on March 14, 1939.

The next day, German troops occupied Prague and the rest of Czechoslovakia. Hitler rode through the streets triumphant. Hugo Meisl was 10 years old.

[…]

It wasn’t long before violence against Jews, property confiscations and forced labor that began in the Sudetenland spread throughout Czechoslovakia. But the Nazis allowed Winton’s trains to leave – in keeping with their policy to “cleanse” Europe of Jews. Hugo Meisl’s parents decided it was time to put him and his brother on one of the trains.

To learn more about the Kindertransports, Kinder and their descendants today, please see www.kindertransport.org

[…]

Over the spring and summer of 1939, seven trains carried over 600 children through the heart of Nazi Germany to Holland, where they took a ferry to the English coast. From there, they caught a train to London.

An eighth train — carrying 250 more — was scheduled to leave Prague on September 1st. But that’s the day the war began.

Nicholas Winton: They were all at the station. Even on the train, waiting to go, and war was declared. So the train never left. Never heard really what happened to all those children.

Bob Simon: But there’s reason to suspect that not many of them survived?

Nicholas Winton: I think that’s true. Yes.

Two years after that last train, the Nazis began implementing the “Final Solution” their plan to slaughter all the Jews of Europe. Czech Jews were rounded up and shipped to Theresienstadt, an old military garrison town about an hour north of Prague — their first stop on the road to annihilation.

These tracks were the exit from Theresienstadt. The only exit. The tracks led east. The trains were called Polish Transports. Destination: Auschwitz. Some 90,000 people took that one-way ride. Among them almost all the children Sir Nicholas wasn’t able to get out in time, their parents and the parents of the children already in England.

[…]

The name of every Czech Jew murdered in the Holocaust is painted on the walls of Prague’s Pinkas Synagogue. Over 77,300 names, including Arnoshtka and Pavel Meisl — Hugo’s parents.

And Nicholas Winton? During the war he volunteered for an ambulance unit for the Red Cross, then trained pilots for the Royal Air Force. He got married, raised a family, earned a comfortable living. For 50 years, he told hardly anyone what he had done.

[…]

“Other things.” For the last 50 years, Winton’s been helping mentally handicapped people and building homes for the elderly.

Nicholas Winton: We’ve just opened our second old people’s home, and it’s full. And it’s doing very well. And there are plenty of old people like me to go in.

Bob Simon: Yes, but you’re not there. You’re at home.

Nicholas Winton: Oh, I’d hate to go into one of my own homes. Don’t print that.

In 2003, Winton was knighted – and became Sir Nicholas Winton. In the Czech Republic, he’s become a national hero. And he was celebrated in a documentary called “Nicky’s Family,” but he isn’t really comfortable with all the adulation.

Nicholas Winton: I’m not interested in the past. I think there’s too much emphasis nowadays on the past and what has happened. And nobody is concentrated on the present and the future.

In 1939, Nicholas Winton used a two week vacation to go to Prague and ended up saving the lives of 669 children. In the decades since, of course, the children had children, who then had children and so on…and the numbers multiplied.

Bob Simon: If you wanna summarize it in one sentence: Guy takes a two week vacation…

Lady Milena: — and ends up with 15,000 children?

Bob Simon: It’s a pretty good story.

Lady Milena: It’s a great story.

Nicholas Winton: They’ve got children and grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Bob Simon: And none of them would be here if it hadn’t been for Sir Nick.

Nicholas Winton: That’s right. Yeah. Yeah. Terrible responsibility, isn’t it?

James DeLong: Jonathan Tobin’s criticisms of Sarah Palin are ridiculous

Posted by Dr. Fay on April 22, 2014

https://i2.wp.com/i1.cdnds.net/13/49/618x610/sarah-palin.jpg

From an article by James V. DeLong at the American Thinker:

Commentary and Sarah Palin

—————————-
———————–

A prominent member of the Republican establishment has decided once again to damn Sarah Palin with faint praise.

In a recent column on Susana Martinez of New Mexico, Jonathan Tobin says: “there is little doubt about the reality of another war on women: the one that is being waged by left-wing ideologues against any female Republican who dares to emerge on the national political stage.”

Tobin is a senior online editor at Commentary, so his columns provide a reasonable window into establishment Republican opinion.

[…]

Tobin’s criticisms are ridiculous.  Palin was faced with a well-funded assault designed to use vague ethics laws to attack her repeatedly.  As the Progressives know well, mud sticks, so this in itself was seen as useful, and Palin, who was not personally rich, did not have the financial resources to counter a serious campaign.

So rather than play a game rigged against her that she must lose, Palin changed it by resigning.  What does Tobin think she should have done?  There is no point in putting the question to Progressives, who attack the resignation because they have no interest in truth, but it is fair to demand that the Tobins provide an answer.  Should she have gone down in a morass of personal bankruptcy and fraudulent charges so the conservative establishment could wring its collective hands over the nastiness of the left?  (Perhaps this is indeed their view; another Commentary writer recently bemoaned the Koch brothers’ willingness to go toe to toe with Harry Reid.)

As for the “bitter” tone, what does that mean?  Palin expresses anger and firmness, but why is this “bitter”?  If the attacks were unfair, why was it wrong to meet them with anger?  And why is it wrong to keep on meeting the distortions of the left with firmness and humor?  (That Tobin thinks she lacks wit just means he has not seen her speak.)  She does not subscribe to one of Commentary’s themes, which is that we are all reasonable people and that the left will eventually be persuaded by the force of our superior logic, so she understands the importance of determination and élan.

We will see about the electoral future.  Palin will do what she does, which is rally the forces of liberty and support good candidates.  She will not triangulate or dissemble.  The current wisdom of the political class is that this does not result in electoral victories, a conclusion borne out by Obama’s success.  But political climates change, and honesty and patriotism may someday come back in style.  One would think Commentary, a staunch supporter of Israel, would appreciate Palin’s firmness.

The final bafflement is that Tobin thinks he can kowtow to the left over its treatment of Palin, but stand up to it when the same weapons are leveled against other women.  Or leveled against others who try to escape the liberal plantation, such as Justice Clarence Thomas, or Miguel Estrada, denied a judgeship by the Progressives because he is Hispanic.  To abase oneself every time the opposition finds a flaw in one’s champions is a prescription for failure.

In the end, Tobin and his ilk reveal themselves as snobs, anxious to impress the chattering class Ivy Leaguers of Washington and the coasts by rejecting this hick from Alaska.  This makes them easy prey for any leftie who looks down his nose and says of some Republican woman, “She’s not really one of us, you know.”

So they need to wise up and get in the game. And that game is not beanbag.

James V DeLong has two degrees from Harvard.  He agrees that Palin is not one of us chattering-class Ivy Leaguers; she is better than that.

Gov. Palin: Our government’s priorities are so skewed.

Posted by Dr. Fay on April 18, 2014

https://sarahpalininformation.files.wordpress.com/2014/04/cf9bc-palinstar.png

Posted on Governor Palin’s Facebook page tonight:

Thank you, Jake Tapper, for covering this shocking story about anti-Semitic propaganda distributed by pro-Russian militants in Ukraine demanding Jews “register” their religion and property. Our U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine confirmed the story. The rest of the media must pursue this story and demand answers from the Obama administration as to what our President’s intention now is in light of this atrocious development that harkens back to frightening times for Jews.

Our government’s priorities are so skewed. The Middle East is a tinderbox; Russia flagrantly invades a sovereign nation, and we just draw more invisible red lines daring bad guys not to cross; we’re fed dishonest domestic denials as we discover our own government is spying on and harassing innocent U.S. citizens; our porous national borders are ignored while clueless politicians excitedly plan welcoming parties and more rewards for illegal foreigners to simply step right on over those borders; Democrats boast about our fake and jobless economic recovery, etc., etc. Yet the top priority of the President (he who is the face of the Democrat Party) and his bureaucrats seems to focus on heavy handedly lassoing Nevada cows to stick it to an American rancher. Meanwhile, the President’s minion, the most powerful man in the U.S. Senate who hails from the great state of Nevada, calls patriotic Americans “terrorists” as we try to get facts on the Bundy ranch cows and controversy in his state. Really? Prioritize much, Democrats?

Here’s the article to Jake Tapper’s report on the story in Ukraine:
