Congratulations, Prime Minister Netanyahu. Thank you to the good people of Israel for supporting a leader who will stand up and fight for all the free world while other leaders sit down. The Heartland of America will sleep better knowing Bibi remains the voice of reason and strength in the beautiful nation of Israel; for when Israel is safe, we are safe.

– Sarah Palin

We at SPIB join Governor Palin and many others who love Israel in congratulating Prime Minister Netanyahu on his reelection.   The closeness of the exit polls had many of us worried that a left-leaning politician could take office who could be manipulated by the Obama administration to give up more of Israel’s land, a move which would have greatly endangered Israel.  In fact, Obama had dispatched his former campaign officials to make that happen and even funded one of the participating entities through State Department grants.  However, Obama and his henchmen were no match for Israel’s God, who delivered the Israelites out of the hands of Haman and has given them many victories in battle in both recent and biblical times.

There has been much speculation about how such a resounding victory could happen after polls just before the election were showing Netanyahu losing ground.  Some have credited it to a shift to the right when he promised there would be no Palestinian state.   What he actually did was align himself with God’s plans for Israel and the Abrahamic covenant in which God set the boundaries of Israel.   Perhaps that is what God was waiting for before He stepped in to enable Bibi to achieve such a decisive victory out of near defeat.

Rabbi Naphtali “Tuly” Weisz  at Breaking Israel News explains it like this:

Analysis: Thank God for Bibi

God helped, and Bibi Netanyahu stunned his opponents, winning a shocking 30 seats in Tuesday’s historic Israeli election. It seems it was destiny; the name Benjamin means “son of my right hand”, while Netanyahu is Hebrew for “God gave.”

With Left Wing pollsters prematurely predicting Netanyahu’s defeat by falling to 20 seats, Netanyahu’s 30 seat victory is nothing short of miraculous.

What caused Netanyahu’s sudden turn around?

On Monday of this week, the prime minister reversed his position on Palestinian statehood and strongly rejected the possibility of a two-state solution on his watch.

In a televised interview with Israeli news site NRG, Netanyahu said that Israel was facing increasing pressure to return to its indefensible 1967 borders by agreeing to a peace deal.

“I think that whoever today moves to establish a Palestinian state and withdraw from territory is giving attack territory for Islamic extremists against the state of Israel,” Netanyahu stated. “Whoever ignores that is burying his head in the sand.”

Asked if that meant that Israel will never agree to a Palestinian state if he wins a fourth term on Tuesday, Netanyahu responded, “Indeed.”

Back in 2009 and buckling to international pressure, Netanyahu agreed to a Palestinian state. This week’s reversal turns the course on more than five years of official Israeli government policy.

In recent years, religious observers decried the Israeli government’s support for Palestinian statehood.

“For the past several months there have been ongoing diplomatic negotiations centering on the demand to give up additional parts of the land of Israel. The Prime Minister is now under additional pressure to agree to further withdrawals, God forbid,” a group of rabbis wrote in a public statement 2013, urging Israelis to pray.

In 2012, another group of Israeli rabbis met with the EU Ambassador to Israel and explained that the “majority of rabbis in Israel and abroad are of the opinion that it is absolutely forbidden, according to Jewish law, to give up an inch of the Promised Land to the Arabs,” as noted by Arutz Sheva.

The close nature of this week’s election caused the prime minister to rethink his political positions and reasses his Biblical values.

Standing on the contested Har Homa in Jerusalem this week, Netanyahu boldly declared,  “My friends and I in the Likud will keep Jerusalem united in all its parts, and we will keep fortifying it so that dividing it will not be possible and it will always remain united. We will keep developing our eternal capital.”

Although not a religiously observant Jew, Prime Minister Netanyahu deeply connects with the Bible and his role in Jewish history.

[…]

In returning to Biblical truth this week,  Netanyahu received the trust of the Jewish nation.

By reaffirming his unyielding support for an undivided Jerusalem and refusal to give up even one inch of the Land that God gave to the Jewish people, Netanyahu seemed to have sealed his fate for another term.

The Likud garnered 30 mandates out of 120 seats in the Knesset; Netanyahu’s closest rival, Isaac Herzog, won 24 mandates with his Zionist Union coalition merger with Tzipi Livni.

Netanyahu is the first Israeli prime minister since David Ben Gurion to be re-elected for a fourth term. He also is well aware of who is really in charge: Netanyahu also made sure to head for the Western Wall just prior to leaving for the United States to deliver his historic address to the U.S. Congress in Washington DC — the only head of state ever to address America’s legislators three times, other than Winston Churchill.

Netanyahu told media who were present for his post-electoral visit to the Western Wall on Wednesday that he was moved by the responsibility that he felt was placed upon his shoulders.

“Here in this place I am awed by the historical significance of a people renewing itself in its homeland after 4,000 years. I am moved by the weight of responsibility that the people of Israel have placed upon my shoulders and appreciate the decision of Israeli citizens to choose me and my colleagues against all odds.

“I would like to say that I will do everything in my power to care of the welfare and security of all Israeli citizens,” he added.

Netanyahu was accompanied to the Wall by his wife Sarah.

Last night (March 17) during his victory speech at Likud campaign headquarters in Tel Aviv, Netanyahu said, “Reality is not waiting for us. The citizens of Israel expect us to quickly put together a leadership that will work for them regarding security, economy and society as we committed to do – and we will do so.”

Ben Shapiro at Breitbart News writes about the lessons that American conservatives can learn from Netanyahu’s leadership.

5 Lessons US Conservatives Should Learn From Netanyahu

 Netanyahu (Reuters)
——————————
by Ben Shapiro17 Mar 2015
 ——————————-

On Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu won re-election according to the latest vote counts, defeating not just his domestic leftist opposition, but the President of the United States in a public stand-off that had the President sending emissaries to Israel to try and oust Netanyahu. The victory represented a stunning turnaround for Netanyahu, whose Likud Party trailed significantly in the polls in the days leading up to the election.

How Netanyahu shifted the narrative in Israel makes for a compelling political case study in principle over prevarication. Netanyahu overcame a highly-publicized domestic scandal involving allegedly ordering some $2,700 worth of ice cream to the official residence, and exceeding his household budget by approximately a million shekel. He overcame inflation against the dollar that jacked up prices of goods in the weeks leading up to the election, and inflated real estate prices over the course of the last six years. He overcame foreign money injected into the campaign.

How? He employed five key tactics — tactics from which American conservatives could learn:

Build Around a Personality. Netanyahu’s speech before Congress was the latest indicator that he was a world leader ready to face down the most powerful people in the world, including Iran and its new friends in the Obama administration. While many Israelis said they didn’t want Netanyahu as prime minister, they preferred him over his rivals in every poll for months before the election by a wide margin. In the late days of the campaign, Netanyahu campaigned openly on the idea that conservatives ought to vote for his party in order to elevate him personally. By positioning himself as a major international presence, Netanyahu placed himself in admirable political position. There is danger to this strategy: it allows the opposition to focus on you personally. But voters vote for people, not for ideas.

Don’t Back Down From A Fight. Netanyahu’s U.S. ambassador, Ron Dermer, knew that Netanyahu was dramatically at odds with President Obama over Obama’s pending nuclear arms deal with Iran. When Dermer negotiated an appearance by Netanyahu before a joint session of Congress with Speaker of the House John Boehner, and Obama retaliated by refusing to see Netanyahu, Netanyahu did not apologize or back down. Instead, he silently embraced the face-off with President Obama, who foolishly elevated Netanyahu by using the media to slam Netanyahu repeatedly. Netanyahu, meanwhile, steadfastly stated that he would use any opportunity, particularly one before the most powerful legislature in the world, to lay out the case against a “bad deal” with Iran. The American media went berserk; the Israeli left media went insane, suggesting that Netanyahu had permanently damaged Israeli-American relations. The polls stated that the speech could actually hurt Netanyahu domestically. Netanyahu went anyway. The result: a boost in the polls and a decline for Zionist Union leader Isaac Herzog.

Energize The Grassroots. The day before the election, Netanyahu stated that he would never support the establishment of a Palestinian state. This has long been Likud’s platform, but Netanyahu, after taking the prime ministership, had made noises about embracing the possibility of a Palestinian state. Many suspected that he embraced the possibility knowing that it was practically impossible, given the character of Israel’s enemies. But now, Netanyahu left nothing to chance: he wanted his supporters to know precisely where he stood. “I think that anyone who is going to establish a Palestinian state today and evacuate lands is giving attack grounds to radical Islam against the state of Israel,” he stated. “There is a real threat here that a left-wing government will join the international community and follow its orders.”

Call Out The Opposition. On election day, Netanyahu let loose with a video explaining that “The right-wing government is in danger. Arab voters are going en masse to the polls. Left-wing NGOs are bringing them on buses.” The Joint Arab List made a similar announcement earlier in the day, stating that by 11 a.m., a full 10 percent of eligible Arabs had voted, as opposed to 3 percent in the last election cycle. The left media went totally crazy over this statement, with the Huffington Post labeling Netanyahu a racist. Of course, the left media also totally neglected to mention that the parties that comprise the Joint Arab List, which carries nearly all of the Arab votes in the elections, openly condemn the existence of the Jewish State, side with Hamas, and support the abolition of Israel entirely. Just days ago, the head of the campaign team said that Hamas was not a terrorist group and suggested that ISIS had taken a page from “the Zionist movement.” Imagine if America had a party dedicated to its destruction and openly allied with Osama Bin Laden in that goal. That is the Joint Arab List, and the Labor party and its allies relied heavily on it to get out the vote for the left. All three major Arab parties comprising the Joint Arab List have been banned from elections in the past. Netanyahu drove out his base to stop the rise of the Joint Arab List, and he was justified in doing so.

Stick To Your Issue. Netanyahu doggedly stuck to national security in this election cycle. While his opposition complained about rent and living expenses, Netanyahu pointed out again and again that his opponents were simply incapable of leading the nation through a time of security crisis. In one of his campaign commercials, Netanyahu posed as a babysitter — the only babysitter you’d trust with your children. Shocked parents asked him why he was there. “It’s either me,” Netanyahu said, “or Tzipi and Buji.” One of the parents responded, “Buji? Our children will have to take care of him! By the time we get home, we won’t have a house left!” As for Livni, Netanyahu stated, “By the time you get back, she’ll have moved on to the neighbors.” Netanyahu concluded, “This election, you will choose who will care for our children. This election, Likud is the only choice!”

Gov. Palin: Our families couldn’t be happier for Bristol and Dakota!

Posted by Dr. Fay on March 14, 2015

Our families couldn’t be happier for Bristol and Dakota! We’re honored to welcome Dakota into our family. He’s an American hero and patriot whose service to our country – like all his fellow Medal of Honor recipients – has been above and beyond the call of duty; but even more important is he’s a good and kind man who loves Bristol and Tripp, and is loved by them. They met last year when he was in Alaska to film an episode of “Amazing America,” and even then it was noticed that just as we like to describe Bristol as “an old soul” wise beyond her years, the same also applies to Dakota. (A clear demonstration is the fact that he flew up North last week to ask both Todd and Bristol’s grandfather, Chuck, Sr., for her hand in marriage!)

Rascal Flatts dedicated a perfect song to them last night during their concert as Dakota proposed; it sums it up best: “Every long lost dream led me to where you are… they were like Northern stars pointing me on my way into your loving arms. This much I know is true – that God blessed the broken road that led me straight to you.”

Yes, God working behind the scenes to turn beauty from ashes. Had tough circumstances in their lives not occurred, and had they reacted differently to those circumstances, they’d have never met. Dakota’s story is told in the book “Into the Fire.”

Dakota wrote a beautiful “thank you” post to those wishing them well (https://www.facebook.com/SgtDakotaMeyer/posts/928241257215716), and Bristol’s picture says a thousand words (http://www.patheos.com/blogs/bristolpalin/2015/03/engaged/) .

Thank you for letting us share good news today!

Gov. Palin writes op-ed on Clinton e-mail scandal, flushes Hillary out

For important context and facts on the Clinton email scandal, please read my latest op-ed:
http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2015/03/09/gov-palin-faced-tough-questions-over-email-so-should-hillary-clinton/.

—————–

—————-

Here is Governor Palin’s op-ed at FOX News:

Gov. Palin: I faced tough questions over email, so should Hillary Clinton

660-Hillary-mobile-phone.jpg

The latest Obama administration scandal involving Hillary Clinton’s emails has many Americans discussing private email accounts used by government officials, and clarification is in order.

It’s appropriate and proper for a politician to use private email for personal and campaign business. This is what I did as governor of Alaska in order to be in compliance with the law, which requires that personal or campaign business not be conducted using public resources such as a government email account. There is a firm line separating the two.

However, that’s not what we see with this Clinton email scandal. As Secretary of State under Obama, Hillary Clinton used private email accounts on a privately maintained server 100 percent of the time for 100 percent government business. That’s unethical, no doubt illegal, and flies in the face of all claims of transparency. Hillary Clinton and her staff weren’t trying to be in compliance with the law; they were skirting it altogether.

The release of my emails was a great boon for Alaska’s tourism industry because dozens of national reporters descended on Alaska to pour through tens of thousands of pages of my emails looking for some smoking gun. They even crowd-sourced the work out to the general public to help them look for dirt! They were sorely disappointed.

Consider, for example, how Secretary Clinton’s private email server makes a mockery of transparency when it comes to Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests.

First, some background: I know something about how annoying FOIA requests can be for public officials. After I returned home from the 2008 vice presidential campaign, the state of Alaska was flooded with innumerable FOIA requests to see literally every single email I ever wrote while governor. It was an overwhelming request for a small population state with limited resources.  But our system of government relies on transparency, and that means public officials must suck it up and let the public see whatever they want.

When FOIA requests bombarded us, investigators and our attorney general’s office were given full access to all of my state and private emails. The only emails redacted were the very few that were protected by attorney/client privilege – a determination agreed upon by my lawyers and the Attorney General’s office who reviewed them. In other words, an independent third party reviewed every email. There was no chance for any “smoking gun” to escape detection because nothing was kept secret in any way. Everything was done in the most transparent way possible.

Contrast that with the way Secretary Clinton has handled transparency. She created private email accounts for herself and her staff on a private email server that she controls completely.

She hasn’t handed over the server to any independent party for review, and it’s already too late to do so because for all we know someone might have already deleted any trace of incriminating emails to and from Secretary Clinton and her aides. This is the opposite of open and transparent government and obviously doesn’t follow the rules.

An honest politician has nothing to fear from the public seeing her emails. I know this. Eventually all but those few redacted emails of mine were released to the public and remain online to this day for anyone to read at any time.

In fact, the release of my emails was a great boon for Alaska’s tourism industry because dozens of national reporters descended on Alaska to pour through tens of thousands of pages of my emails looking for some smoking gun. They even crowd-sourced the work out to the general public to help them look for dirt! They were sorely disappointed.

All they found was evidence of an administration doing what the people sent us to do – work hard for them. My favorite summary of the email findings came from CNN’s Drew Griffin who reported: “I think what we’re seeing here is a hard-working governor, working hard for the state of Alaska, a lot of discussion about policy, about taxes, about cutting budgets, a lot of just mundane state government work.”

So, at least the media and the public learned a lot about conservative governance, responsible resource development, fiscal budgeting, Fish & Game management, and other scintillating topics.

But don’t take my word for it. Search the online databases of my emails created by the New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, and other national media sources… and be bored.

Now many of these same media outfits are pursuing access to Secretary Clinton’s emails. Will they put the same effort into her emails as they did mine?

Unfortunately for America, we have no way of knowing what’s already missing from among Secretary Clinton’s emails. In fact, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), chair of the House select committee investigating Benghazi, explained that the emails she submitted to his committee contain huge gaps spanning months.

Good luck finding those missing emails. And good luck getting a straight answer from the Obama administration as to why no one in the White House noticed that the Secretary of State wasn’t using a government email account.

You’d expect more from the self-described “most transparent administration in history.” And you should demand more from anyone who wants to be president someday.

Sarah Palin first made history on December 4, 2006, when she was sworn in as the first female and youngest governor of Alaska. In August 2008, Senator John McCain tapped Palin to serve as his vice-presidential running mate in his presidential campaign, making her the first woman to run on the Republican Party’s presidential ticket. She is a contributor for Fox News where she offers her political commentary and analysis across all Fox News platforms.

As Obama has done more than once,  Clinton acted in response to Governor Palin’s challenge:

Sarah Palin Shames Hillary Clinton Into Press Conference To Explain Email Issues…

In less than an hour Sarah Palin achieved something the rest of the punditry and media class were unable to do.

palin hillary

Pay attention to the time.

[…]

The Bloomberg report was sent out at 4:21pm

Two sources close to Clinton said Monday that the former secretary of state will likely hold a press conference in an effort to push back on a week of speculation about why she used the private account instead of one hosted by the State Department. It would also present an opportunity for Clinton to defend her family foundation’s acceptance of contributions from foreign donors during and after her time at State.

A press conference addressing perceived secrecy and potential ethical lapses isn’t what Clinton wants to be doing in mid-March, and she and some of her close advisers had hoped to put off answering questions about her e-mail account until she formally launches her campaign, almost certainly in April.

But their desire to ride out the storm was overtaken by a sense that their initial attempt to let some air out of the controversy—via a tweet conveying Clinton’s request for the State Department to release her e-mails—hadn’t done enough to ease the tension. (link)

Gov. Palin: Hillary email scandal is shady and corrupt

This Clinton email scandal can’t be shrugged off. If this doesn’t strike you as shady and corrupt, I don’t know what will. Didn’t anyone in the Obama administration notice that the Secretary of State for “the most transparent administration in history” was only using a private email account for all her government business? And her answer to all these questions is a tweet? Diplomacy (and cover ups) by Twitter continues.

More from Bristol on this scandal here from Bristol’s Blog:
http://www.patheos.com/…/why-that-hillary-clinton-personal…/

Here is Bristol’s article from Bristol’s Blog: ————————–

Why that Hillary Clinton Personal Email Scandal is a Big Deal

Hillary

Hillary Clinton was in the headlines last week for using her personal email for government business when she was secretary of state. Her supporters are saying, “who cares?” But even CNN knows why those are important facts to consider in a more-than-likely presidential candidate!

Emails are getting to be a big way to see what our officials really think and do, and to hold them accountable. (And can I just say, my mom’s emails were examined and they found absolutely NOTHING on her!)

Now it’s Hillary’s turn to be scrutinized, and she’s not so squeaky clean. Here are the reasons CNN said Americans have to be concerned:

  1. She violated the spirit of the law. Even if the law wasn’t as specific as it is now, isn’t it kind of common sense to keep government business on government channels?
  2. “It fits with criticism that the Clintons are sneaky and skirt the rules.” Their family charity got a few foreign donations while she was Secretary of State, which DID break the rules.
  3. It’s a security risk. The head of the state department really should know better.
  4. It shows the opposite of transparency, that all-important government value. Government employees are supposed to use their federal emails so their messages can be archived. With a personal email, there’s no accountability. What does she have to hide?

Business executive Carly Fiorina said, “This once again raises serious questions as to Hillary Clinton’s definition of leadership.”

But there’s more.  Chris Cillizza of the Washington Post has new information…  emphasis mine:

The computer server that transmitted and received Hillary Rodham Clinton’s emails — on a private account she used exclusively for official business when she was secretary of state — traced back to an Internet service registered to her family’s home in Chappaqua, New York, according to Internet records reviewed by The Associated Press.

The highly unusual practice of a Cabinet-level official physically running her own email would have given Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential candidate, impressive control over limiting access to her message archives. It also would distinguish Clinton’s secretive email practices as far more sophisticated than some politicians, including Mitt Romney and Sarah Palin, who were caught conducting official business using free email services operated by Microsoft Corp. and Yahoo Inc.

Here’s the thing, Chris.  Do you think it’s possible that the same people who went after my mom — and found nothing — also may have received e-mails from Hillary since that time?  Do you think for one second they even raised an eyebrow over her personal e-mail use?  Of course not.

I know people’s tongues are wagging because they are beginning to realize the Clintons believe the rules don’t apply to them.  But for me, the big revelation is that my mom’s harassment was just that.  Politically driven malice toward someone who did nothing wrong.

How will the same liberals react to Hillary, when it’s obvious to everyone that she’s done something wrong?

They’ll probably serve on her campaign staff and continue to carry her baggage.

Gov. Palin encourages everyone to #StandWithBibi

Posted by Dr. Fay on March 3, 2015

Posted on Governor Palin’s Facebook today:

_______________

Today, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will address a joint meeting of our Congress. You’d think the Obama administration would welcome the insights of the leader of our closest ally in the Middle East. But President Obama, Vice-President Joe Biden, and Secretary of State John Kerry have refused to attend. In fact, no member of the Obama administration is expected to attend.

This is a shocking insult to our ally, and it all boils down to the Obama administration’s refusal to understand the danger of a nuclear Iran.

All of the Obama administration’s many failures in the Middle East – from the descent of Libya into a terrorist playground to the rise of ISIS – pale in comparison to the farce unfolding in Iran. The Obama administration is negotiating with the Iranian regime as it builds a nuclear bomb right under our noses.

Just recently we found out about another “secret” undisclosed nuclear site, one Iran failed to disclose to our negotiators. At this point, the Obama administration’s eagerness to strike a deal with a regime that has armed militants who killed American troops and has sworn to destroy Israel is one of the most dangerous developments of my lifetime.

America has to wake up. We swore “never again” would we allow anyone to try to wipe out the Jewish people or commit mass genocide like we saw during World War II, and yet we’re allowing a regime that promises genocide to acquire nukes.

This is why I urge you all to express your support for Prime Minister Netanyahu, who is right now speaking as the leader of the free world in addressing this existential threat of a nuclear Iran. Please tweet and share this post and use the hashtag ‪#‎StandWithBibi‬

Let our friends in Israel know we stand with them!

—————
Prime Minister Netanyahu was warmly received by the joint session of Congress.   There were many standing ovations, and the Congress continued to applaud as he exited the Chamber.  Netanyahu’s historic speech outlined in detail the dangers Iran currently poses and the even greater dangers a nuclear Iran would impose.

 ———————-

While imploring America to take a stand against the “bad deal” that is on the table with Iran,  Netanyahu declared,  ‘Even if Israel has to stand alone, Israel will stand.’   I think that is one of the most noteworthy quotes of his speech.  What he could have added is:  “and Israel’s God will stand with her.”

 ————————-
Here is the PBS video of Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech.  It covers the entire joint session and is longer than other versions.  Netanyahu enters the Chamber at about the 22-minute mark, and it is well worth watching the welcome he is given as he makes his way to the podium.  His exit from the Chamber starts at about the 1 hour 8 minute mark.  Applause accompanied him all the way out of the Chamber.   It is obvious that Bibi Netanyahu is loved and respected by the majority of Americans.

Ben Shapiro at Breitbart wrote an excellent summary and commentary on Netanyahu’s speech to Congress:

Netanyahu: ‘Even If Israel Has to Stand Alone, Israel Will Stand’

by Ben Shapiro  3 Mar 2015

On Tuesday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of the State of Israel reset the agenda for the Western world in a speech before a joint session of Congress.

For weeks, the Obama administration has attempted to direct attention away from Netanyahu’s actual agenda – stopping the Iranian nuclear deal – and toward petty political maneuvering over permissions to speak and Democratic boycotts. All of that fell away in the wake of a clear, powerful, and emotional call by Netanyahu for the United States and Israel to stand united against the evil terror of Iran.

Netanyahu opened by expressing his humility for the invite, calling Congress the “most important legislative body in the world.” He then apologized for the speech itself becoming controversial. “That was never my intention,” he stated. “I want to thank you, Democrats and Republicans, for your common support for Israel, year after year, decade after decade. I know that on whichever side of the aisle you sit, you stand with Israel.”

That clever gambit – an attempt to kill the Obama administration and the boycotting Democrats with kindness – placed President Obama’s puerile spitefulness on Israel in stark contrast. That, of course, was the point. Every time Netanyahu spelled out the ways in which the Obama administration had helped Israel – instances that were, by and large, pro forma commitments every American president makes to Israel – he forced Obama into a corner. Turning the other political cheek turned out to be a powerful weapon.

Netanyahu got to the heart of his message: absolutely devastating Obama’s reported Iranian peace deal. In the shadow of the Jewish holiday of Purim, when a Jewish woman pled for the survival of her people from the genocidal intentions of a Persian anti-Semite, Netanyahu echoed Queen Esther’s language:

I feel profound obligation to speak to you about a threat to the survival of my country and the survival of my people, Iran’s quest for nuclear weapons. In nearly 4,000 years of history, many have tried repeatedly to destroy the Jewish people.

Netanyahu expressed that the threat was not only to Israel, but to the West, explaining, “Iran’s regime is not merely a Jewish problem any more than the Nazi regime was merely a Jewish problem…Iran’s regime poses a grave threat not only to Israel but to the peace of the entire world.”

And, he said, to understand the nature of the deal being cut, the key lay in understanding “the nature of that regime.” Netanyahu described Israel’s enemies, funded by Iran, as “clutching Israel with three tentacles of terror.” He described Iran stretching from Syria to Iraq to Yemen. “At a time when many hope that Iran will join the community of nations,” he stated, “Iran is busy gobbling up the nations. We must all stand together to stop Iran’s march of conquest, subjugation, and terror.”

But that was his point: Obama is forwarding Iran’s march, despite Iran’s obvious intention to destroy the West. Many commentators have described Netanyahu as the true leader of the free world, given President Obama’s unwillingness to speak on behalf of a free world. He made that case today before Congress:

Iran’s regime is as radical as ever. Its cries of Death to America, the same nation it calls the Great Satan, are as loud as ever. This shouldn’t be surprising…[Iran’s] ideology is rooted in militant Islam. That’s why this regime will always be an enemy of America.

“Militant Islam.” The two words Obama refuses to say in that order.

Netanyahu continued by leveling the Obama argument that America must cut a deal with Iran in order to stop ISIS:

Iran and ISIS are competing for the crown of militant Islam…Both want to impose a militant Islamic empire, first on the region, then on the entire world. They just disagree who will be the ruler of this empire. In this deadly game of thrones, there is no place for America or Israel…When it comes to Iran and ISIS, the enemy of your enemy is your enemy.

And, Netanyahu pointed out, Obama’s negotiation would end with Iran gaining a nuclear weapon.

 That is exactly what could happen if the deal now being negotiated is accepted by Iran. That deal won’t prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons. It would all but guarantee Iran gets those weapons. Lots of them.

Netanyahu laid out his two major critiques of the proposed deal. First, he explained, the deal would protect Iran’s “vast nuclear infrastructure,” placing them within a short period of developing nuclear weapons. Iran could cheat, Netanyahu pointed out – after all, “Inspectors document violations. They don’t stop them. Inspectors knew when North Korea broke to the bomb. But that didn’t stop anything.”

Second, and more importantly, he said, even if Iran complies with the deal, after the ten year period, they would be free to develop nuclear weapons without restriction. A decade, Netanyau pointed out, is a “blink of an eye in the life of our children.” And when that decade ends, “The foremost sponsor of global terrorism could be weeks away from having enough enriched uranium for an entire nuclear arsenal, and this with full international legitimacy.” Furthermore, no deal will include a stop on Iranian intercontinental ballistic missiles, leaving Europe and the United States vulnerable.

[…]

Iran, Netanyahu said, could be held to account. They could earn their way to legitimacy, rather than being given legitimacy without making any concessions. They could be forced to stop regional aggression, stop supporting terrorism, stop threatening to “annihilate my country, Israel, the one and only Jewish state.” And, he continued:

If the world powers aren’t willing to insist that Iran change its behavior before a deal is signed, at the very least, insist that Iran change its behavior before a deal expires. If Iran changes its behavior, the restrictions would be lifted. If Iran doesn’t change its behavior, the restrictions should not be lifted. If Iran wants to be treated like a normal country, let it act like a normal country.

What could the West do? Netanyahu suggested, “call their bluff”:

They need the deal a lot more than you do. And by maintaining the pressure on Iran, and those who do business with Iran, you have the power to make them need it even more. My friends, for over a year, we’ve been told that no deal is better than a bad deal. Well this is a bad deal. It’s a very bad deal. We’re better off without it.

Finally, Netanyahu invoked the Holocaust. He gave a tribute to Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel, stating, “Standing up to Iran is not easy. Standing up to dark and murderous regimes never is.” Then he warned the world:

I wish I could promise you, Elie, that the lessons of history have been learned. I can only urge the leaders of the world not to repeat the mistakes of the past. Not to sacrificed the future for the present, not to ignore aggression in the hopes of gaining an illusory peace. But I can guarantee you this: the days when the Jewish people remain passive in the face of genocidal enemies, those days are over!

Netanyahu vowed, “as PM of Israel, I can promise you one more thing. Even if Israel has to stand alone, Israel will stand. But I know that Israel does not stand alone, I know that America stands with Israel, I know that you stand with Israel.”

Netanyahu concluded by citing the Bible, in Hebrew. He quoted the parting words of Moses as the Jews were about to enter the land of Israel, from Deuteronomy 31:6:

Moses gave us a message that has steeled our resolve for thousands of years…Be strong and resolute, neither fear nor dread them. My friends, may Israel and America always stand together, strong and resolute, may we neither fear nor dread the challenges ahead, may we face the future with confidence, strength and hope. May God bless the state of Israel, and may God bless the United States of America.

The controversy over the politics of the speech is over. Now the world must answer Netanyahu’s question: will Israel have to stand alone?

Gov. Palin: The thing our vets cherish most is Victory!

Posted by Dr. Fay on February 26, 2015

Video retrieved from sarahnettoo

Governor Palin’s address closed out the first day of CPAC 2015.  Having been asked to speak about our veterans, she gave an EXCELLENT, very serious speech in support of our veterans.  She criticized the current treatment of our returning military and offered some practical solutions, including health insurance and health care vouchers, certification for employment based on their skills used in the military, and protection of their retirement benefits.

She attributed the rise of ISIS directly to Obama’s refusal to leave a residual force of the U. S. military in Iraq.  Obama’s refusal to acknowledge ISIS as Islamic and his endangerment of our military by his changes in the rules of engagement came under fire also.  She praised Egypt’s victory over jihadism under its new government that toppled the Muslim Brotherhood regime favored by Obama.

Governor Palin ended her speech with a heartfelt recognition of and thanks to the veterans who were present. “We love you!  Thank you!”

A quick, humorous question and answer session followed, in which she associated “iron” with Margaret Thatcher and said “Sorry” for Obama and “I’m sorry” for Hillary Clinton.

Here are graphics with quotes from her speech that she tweeted this evening:

Todd Palin racing Iron Dog 2015 in honor of Chris Kyle

Posted by Dr. Fay on February 23, 2015

Here is Bristol’s article that Governor Palin linked to.  It contains an excerpt from the Breitbart article.

5 Photos from Todd Palin’s Iron Dog Race Honoring Chris Kyle

Breitbart’s Kevin Scholla writes (In “No Girly Men Allowed”):

While many in the contiguous 48 states will be watching the Daytona 500 and the Oscars Sunday, the eyes of Alaska focus on the Iron Dog.

The grueling snowmachine race has been going strong since 1984.  For the 22nd time, former Alaska First Gentleman Todd Palin competes.

Palin has won the race four times and he’s teaming for a second straight year with Tyler Huntington. The duo, Team 11, honors an American hero in the process. Todd Palin races in support of the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation, with a snowmachine decked out in a patriotic decal that pays homage to one of the greatest snipers America has ever known.

Palin and Kyle became friends while filming the NBC show Stars Earn Stripes.

“It was just an honor to spend time with Chris Kyle,” Palin told The Palin Update with Kevin Scholla on Mama Grizzly Radio. “I think that the success of (American Sniper) just shows that Americans have been waiting to be able to lift that hero up. It’s been huge”

So proud of Dad and his desire to honor Chris. Go, Dad, go!   Here are some pictures from today!

In downtown Anchorage today for the ceremonial kick-off of the world’s longest, toughest snowmachine race – the Iron Dog! Tomorrow is the official start where tough teams comprised of two racers on individual sleds that they’ve spent months wrenching on speed across Alaska through unbelievable conditions, upwards of 100 mph wide open to the elements! Racers brave blizzards in pitch blackness atop frozen rivers to do their barehanded repairs of shocks, tracks, engines or anything else that gets thrashed during this crazy-tough endurance competition; they skip open Arctic waters between Native villages; they dodge wild animals throughout the 2030-mile extreme adventure that ends next Sunday in Fairbanks. These athletes live life vibrantly – and girly men don’t race the Iron Dog. We’re pulling for Team 11 (this is Todd’s 22nd Iron Dog!) but wishing every team a safe, unforgettable, rewarding week. Track progress here: http://www.irondog.org/race-tracking/pro-class-2015/…

Todd is racing in support of the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation (http://www.chriskylefrog.com/)!
