Rick Perry gets Turkey right

January 17, 2012

(Israel Matzav) At the Republican Presidential debate in South Carolina on Monday, former Texas Governor Rick Perry called a spade, a spade. He slammed Turkey for being governed by Islamic terrorists and urged NATO to expel the Islamic state. The Turks are furious (Hat Tip: Joshua I).

Perry made the remarks when he was asked by moderator of the program whether Turkey should still belong in NATO, given that “the murder rate of women has increased 1,400 percent, press freedom has declined to the level of Russia, Prime Minister of Turkey has embraced Hamas and Turkey threatened military action against both Israel and Cyprus since the Islamist-oriented party took over.”
“Obviously when you have a country that is being ruled by what many would perceive to be Islamic terrorists, when you start seeing that type of activity against their own citizens, then, yes, not only is it time for us to have a conversation about whether or not they belong to be in NATO but it’s time for the United States, when we look at their foreign aid, to go to zero with it,” Perry boldly claimed.
“And you go to zero with foreign aid for all of those countries. It does not make any difference who they are. You go to zero with foreign aid and you have the conversation about do they have America’s best interests in mind. When you have countries that are moving far away from the country that I lived in back in the 1970s as a pilot of the US Air Force, that was our ally, they worked with us. But today, we don’t see that,” Perry said.

And in case anyone didn’t get it, a Perry spokesperson explained it.

Victoria Coates, his foreign policy advisor, said that some view the leaders of Turkey as Islamic terrorists due to their support of Hamas and the flotilla against Israel, according to ABC News.
“The governor was responding to the questioners references to violence against women and to association with Hamas, I think both of which are things that many people do associate as he said with Islamic terrorists,” Coates was quoted as telling reporters by ABC News. “He was referring to those things, and while he would welcome the opportunity to work with Turkey on regional issues like Syria or Iraq, this kind of behavior on the part of that country is disturbing and I think we should concerned about it.”
Asked if the leaders of Turkey have performed any actions which place them in the category of Islamic terrorists, Coates responded: “What he said was that many people associate that kind of behavior with that of Islamic terrorists. I think also their support for the flotilla against Israel this fall. It’s deeply concerning, and I think it’s something any future American president needs to be aware of.”

Let’s go to the videotape (Hat Tip: Outside the Beltway).

It probably bears mentioning that Daniel Pipes questioned whether Turkey belongs in NATO back in 2009.

Maybe I will have another look at this guy. He isn’t what the media is making him out to be. He is a man who is merely trying to get his Conservative and Zionist credentials back when it was revealed that he had allowed in Texas some textbooks to be printed that said Israel is the cause of the friction between Jews and Muslims. It sure pissed me off… but I think he is learning… give him a little credit.

Video: Rick Perry says Israel can continue building in Judea and Samaria

January 6, 2012

Here’s a video of Republican candidate Rick Perry discussing his positions on Israel.
Let’s go to the videotape (Hat Tip: Natan613 via Twitter).

…but those Perry textbooks in Texas say that there was no problems between Jews and Muslims for the most part until the state of Israel. He would of had my support otherwise. If he can explain how the mistake was made then he could have serious Pro Israel and Christian Born Again support, but the truth is that the born again movement is a minority in the Christian community.

Perry Fumbles at the GOP Debate – Says Eliminate 3 Agencies, Can’t Name Them

November 10, 2011
11092011-102v(matzav.com) United in agreement for once, Republican presidential rivals warned forcefully last night the United States could be doomed to the same sort of financial crisis that is afflicting Europe unless federal deficits are drastically cut and the economy somehow revived.

The debate in economically ailing Michigan focused almost entirely on financial worries and proposed solutions in the U.S.
The candidates generally stuck to practiced speech lines – with a late exception. In the middle of one answer, Texas Gov. Rick Perry found himself unable to recall the names of all three of the Cabinet-level agencies he wants to eliminate, even leaning over to Rep. Ron Paul for help at one point.
“The third agency of government I would do away with – the education, the commerce. And let’s see. I can’t. The third one I can’t. Oops,” he said, forgetting for a moment that he wants to abolish the Department of Energy.

(Boker Tov) I arrived at last night’s debate with one foot still in Perry’s camp and the other, testing the water over at Lake Newt. By the end, I thought that Perry was toast (because of the brain freeze moment), Newt was disappointingly churlish and Cain’s 9-9-9 is starting to wear thin. Rick Santorum just cannot get over himself and stop whining; Bachmann was better, for not being on the attack; but I still… deeply… don’t want Romney.
So this morning I’ve been reading around the comments, from Politico to RedState, and have been amazed to find Perry’s support seeming to hold strong. Here’s one commenter, who uses a baseball analogy to make his/her point:

The way I look at Perrys flub tonight, is like watching a baseball game. Your star hitter comes up with runners on first and third, and your two runs down. You’re wanting that home run, but he strikes out.
With some of the comments here tonight, I would bet if they were at that game, They would leave, and start yelling for the team to trade him. It doesn’t matter to them that the game isn’t over, that there are 5 innings left. Their hero didn’t come through, so they’ve had it. They’re going to quit supporting that team.
It is the total opposite of loyalty. It’s not taught in scool no more, so they don’t know what it is.
Later they find out that in the bottom of the ninth, the star player hit a grand slam home run, and wins the game by one run.
They will jump on board again.
The question is, do we as a team want them back.
The answer is yes.

And then there’s the email sent out by Team Perry at 2:30 a.m., again according to comments:

“We’ve all had human moments. President Obama is still trying to find all 57 states. Ronald Reagan got lost somewhere on the Pacific Highway in an answer to a debate question. Gerald Ford ate a tamale without removing the husk. And tonight Rick Perry forgot the third agency he wants to eliminate. Just goes to show there are too damn many federal agencies.
The governor said it best afterwards: “I’m glad I had my boots on, because I sure stepped in it tonight.”
While the media froths over this all too human moment, we thought we would take this opportunity to ask your help in doing something much more constructive: write us to let us know what federal agency you would most like to forget.
Is it the EPA and its job-killing zealots? The NLRB and its czar-like dictates? The edu-crats at the Department of Education who aim to control your local curriculum?
Send your answer to forgetmenot@rickperry.org, and if you are on twitter join us in using a new twitter hashtag: #forgetmenot. And, if you could, throw in a $5 contribution for every agency you would like to forget. We hope you have a long list. And we promise we will write down every last idea. So we don’t forget.
Still standing in our Boots,
Team Perry”

Lastly, this one made a striking point about the Enemedia:

… let’s be clear, the media today is another branch of the federal govt. Without being appointed Czar of Public Opinion or having a vote in Congress or a seat on the SCOTUS, they drive agendas, pick winners and losers, shape our minds while we don’t even realize it.
Remember Mark Halperin on Morning Joke saying after an Obama speech, “I think he was a d—.” ? Where’s Mark this morning? Sitting at the desk on Morning Joke, claiming Perry’s done, no chance, ever. It’s over.

There’s a lot to think about, so for the time being I’m reserving judgement. The next debate is – brace yourself – the day after tomorrow: Saturday 8 pm on CBS, moderated by Scott Pelley for CBS and Major Garrett for National Journal.

I don’t have a problem with not knowing the answer. I have a problem that he had to lean over to Ron Paul to answer it for him. It isn’t so much that I think he is stupid. I’m not looking at him that way. I know he isn’t stupid. What I fear with Perry is that he depends on smart people who do not share values that are good for Jews and Christians. If you are a devout spiritual person and you count on intellectuals that are philosophically rooted without a sound foundation (P.S. that is what religion is supposed to do), then you are not giving your voters what you are promising. I want a religious man that can get his hands dirty in the issues and doesn’t have to play more pure then thou… and leaves the details to those that don’t share positive values. That was the problem with G W Bush… and Perry appears to be a lot alike. Bush really wanted to be the born again President, but if you look at his record he wasn’t much different then Obama. And the reason we have Obama now is not that Conservatism failed… it is that Conservative values did not lead. Conservatives can not lean over to people like Ron Paul, Condi Rice, or other so called intellectuals and say… “HELP, I’m just a stupid religious person who the voters like because I’m the symbolic man of G-d”. Letting your enemies step in when you fail because you don’t have a clue was the undoing of the Republican party and I fear we are going back in the same direction.


Is Newt the only Republican who supports a unified Jerusalem?

October 26, 2011

NEWT PROMISES TO MOVE THE US EMBASSY TO JERUSALEM ON DAY ONE. WHEN HE ANNOUNCED THIS IN IOWA. IT WAS MET WITH A STANDING OVATION.

No true conservative should endorse any Republican who drags his feet on this issue. Time to pressure Romney, Cain and Perry. This is a message to the Norquist Republicans: The message is if you don’t support a unified Jerusalem then you have no place in a future Republican party. Israel’s values are Republican values.(RHINO COMMANDER from KingKong21)

Herman Cain rises, Rick Perry slides in CBS poll

October 5, 2011
..Agha Khan hurts Perry,..
so does the Norquist and Perry connections…

Blacker then Obama and likes the Jews more: (CBS)/Getty) Herman Cain has moved into a tie with Mitt Romney atop the field of Republican presidential candidates. Rick Perry has fallen 11 percentage points in just two weeks.

I like all these guys, but Perry is vulnerable to criticism all over the place. He is exactly like Bush with all the same problems. The Left hates him because he is Christian and the right doesn’t trust a guy who is doing business with our murderers. If Perry wants to win he is going to have to clarify his position on Islam. Since Perry is Al Gore’s campaign manager I’m not sure he has the ability to be a true conservative and call out a danger. Perry let school books carry Palestinian propaganda like claims that Jews and Muslims lived in peace before the state of Israel was created. This claim is false as was pointed out on my blog regarding Tiberias, and there are so many other examples of killing pogroms. The Arabs were as bad as Cossacks and a few liberal Eastern European Jews are going to have to realize that their anger at the Tsar is equaled to the abuse the Sephards took. When the Arabs asked to merely kill Ashkenazis they killed the Sephards with them. That is what happened in Hebron. Romney’s problem is very simple… he’s a Mormon and Mormon religion despite what Beck claims is replacement theology. Romney is a true friend of Israel, but Romney is going to have to change his church like his Dad did when the church started allowing black people in (black folks are cursed in Mormonism… yes the rumor is true and I suppose we could say slavery was a curse… yeah it took me a while to get that the Mormons are actually the liberal bohemians who wanted sex with more then one vagina. I get it now… and I’m sure I’ve offended a few readers just now… honestly I’d convert if you didn’t believe we were all from outer space and things like we can be a G-d too… I do like the wife part) The problem with Cain is he is a business man… and business men have to take recommendations on things… they are not scholars. He admits that, so Cain is really only as good as the people that are around him. He’s a leader, commander and not a scholar. It shows when he answered some Palestine issues. Example he didn’t know anything about a Palestinian right to return. He said this to deny something on a threatening stance, but the truth is that this stance is out there and he didn’t know about it. you have to acknowledge lies before you can undo them. I still think Cain is a sure bet to be elected and get Obama the Jew back stabber out. The campaign slogan could be I’m blacker then you and I like Jews.


Rise of the Planet of the Apes: Koch Endorses Obama in 2012

October 1, 2011

koch“Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me TWICE, shame on ME.” said one Jew on an internet facebook group. Yes Ed is ready to be a slave to Socialism once again… he just wanted some attention first… and he wanted to kibbitz with the president about monkeys.

(NYTimes) Former Mayor Edward I. Koch, who recently used the forum of a special Congressional election to broadcast his criticism of President Obama’s Israel policy, announced in an e-mail on Tuesday that Mr. Obama’s United Nations speech opposing the Palestinians’ bid for statehood had satisfied all his concerns, and that he was now prepared to support Mr. Obama’s re-election.

…The shocking thing is the end of the article…

He declined to say what Mr. Obama had said in their interaction, but he did reveal that the president made a remark about one of the Republican presidential candidates, Gov. Rick Perry of Texas. “I won’t say what he said,” Mr. Koch said, “but I said to him: ‘Mr. President, that’s the one guy you won’t have to worry about. Jews will never vote for anyone who doesn’t believe in evolution.’ ”
Miral is in the latest Planet of the Apes film that Ed Koch likes so much…

Koch has no problems with Jew cleansing bigots like Obama (Palestine will not allow Jews to live there), but people who don’t believe in the theory that we are monkeys are a problem?As long as Ed gets attention it is all fine.

(OurTownNY) “When I was parks commissioner, I renamed the Fountain of the Planets in Flushing Meadows Corona Park the Fountain of the Planet of the Apes. Later, in an agreement with then-Borough President Claire Shulman, who had reservations about the name change, a smaller fountain was named instead for the Apes film.

The worst thing about Ed the Queen is he makes us look into his little arrogant head all the time.
…I didn’t want to go there.
