Obama lacking economic sense, insight and 4sight is the 4th foolish President in US history to sign a 4doomed Keynesian stimulus bill .
On February 18th an Egyptian administrative court made history by upholding an unprecedented government edict issued by the moderate, Christian friendly, anti-jihadist regime of President Abdel al-Sisi ordering the closing of 27,000 places of worship which were exclusively Moslem mosques (see). Why were none of the thousands of Coptic churches included in the edict? Was it fair that only mosques and no churches were closed?
President al-Sisi greeted by Pope Francis at the Vatican.
One dissonant voice on Facebook commenting on the ill-treatment of Moslems verses Christians under al-Sisi said: “Well done! Christians have lost the right to complain about their lesser status. Egypt is no longer a Muslim Nation -- it has turned Christian, or so it seems!” Another dissonant voice at the time was so outraged at the mosques' closings that he accused al-Sisi of being a crypto-Christian who secretly converted to the faith while serving as defense minister under radical Moslem Brotherhood President Morsi. For proof of his theory the commenter pointed to al-Sisi's historic visit on Christmas Eve to Egypt's largest Coptic church, a first for an Egyptian head of state. Also mentioned was al-Sisi's tight alliance with Coptic Pope Tawadros II, an enthusiastic supporter of his pro-Coptic regime. To this couldd be added al-Sisi's bombing of ISIS targets in Libya shortly after these butchers beheaded 21 innocent Copts while praising Allah (see).
Could the angry commenter be right? Is al-Sisi an apostate from Islam making him the first Christian head of Egypt since its conquest by Moslems 14 centuries ago? We don't know. Until there's hard proof of al-Sisi's conversion a more likely explanation is that he's a real, genuine Egyptian nationalist (more so than were Sadat and Mubarak) patriotically carrying out his responsibilities as President to protect the safety, security and property of all Egyptians regardless of faith. And that the closing of 27,000 mosques, verses not a single church, is due solely to their actual (or potentially) radical nature headed by extremist clerics poisoning their congregations with violence and hate against Christians and the Egyptian state. But that not one single church was closed (large or small) tells us that al-Sisi regards Christianity as more truly a religion of God's peace, and more beneficial to Egypt, than is the Islamic faith that he's courageously trying to reform against a growing storm.
As I was looking through my Townhall archives today I came across this piece about the Boston Marathon Bombing. Inspired by Arianna Huffington I thought it would amuse you.
FROM APOLLOSPEAKS' TOWNHALL ARCHIVES
2013-04-26 09:12: --HOW TO PREVENT FUTURE BOSTON BOMBING -THE LEFTIST APPROACH
will Obama designate their murderous mass casualty jihadist crime as Tax Day Sports Event Shopping Place Violence?
But what might the Iranians be enriching off shore with their Axis of Evil partners in North Korea-with whom they have a Science and Technology Cooperation Agreement?
Does that even matter when Iran has enough U235 to construct 3 or more thermonuclear weapons on their own soil buried under hundreds of meters of granite? In case you had not noticed Iran has an actual source in the ground for yellow cake within their borders.

What Obama didn't say-and knows to be true as it would make him look like the biggest fool since Hitler deceived Chamberlain-is that even if Iran becomes 100% transparent about its domestic nuclear program; even if the terrorist mullahs open up every inch of their vast $100 billion nuclear infrastructure to the most rigorous UN inspection and verification process, it won't stop them from getting the bomb. Why? Because just as the Saudis can easily acquire nukes from Pakistan (which they don't want to do but will if Iran goes nuclear, see) the mullahs can easily acquire them from their "Axis of Evil" partners in Stalinist North Korea-the worst nuclear proliferators on the planet. And if anyone is dumb enough to doubt this then they need to recall that just one year after the Norks detonated their first nuclear bomb they were hard at work (possibly with Iran) on building a nuclear weapons facility for Bashar Assad in Syria. This project was the "largest act of nuclear proliferation in history," said David Asher, George Bush's coördinator for North Korea (see). The plant, however, was destroyed by Israel* (see).
*Because of the plant's illegal nature Assad never filed a complaint with the UN about Israel violating Syria's airspace and destroying it.
THE IRAN-NORTH KOREA PACT
The US has no way to shut down Iran's pathway to develop nukes in N.Korea.
In fact, what Obama knows and wants kept hidden as it completely destroys his credibility of halting Iran's march to the bomb is that in 2012 Iran signed a scientific and technological cooperation agreement with North Korea (see and see). These two Axis of Evil states are evily working together on missile technology (for ICBMs which Iran has developed), and most likely nuclear weapons technology. Moreover, there is evidence that Assad (the worst mass murderer of the 21st century who used chemical weapons on his people) is still pursuing nuclear weapons with the Norks (see). Frighteningly, Iranian scientists are reported to have been present at both of North Korea's nuclear detonations (see).
Radical terrorist jihadist Iran's nuclear ambitions cannot be constrained or controlled by any agreement-no more than was Hitler and the Nazis controlled by the Munich Accord before the outbreak of World War II. The genocidal mullahs are staying the course to a deadly, mass death-dealing nuclear armed state, and nothing can stop it but regime change. What we heard in the Rose Garden yesterday was a pathetic political smoke and mirrors charade for 2016 and his legacy. The goal of the negotiations was never to prevent Iran from getting the bomb, but to make the great amateur look like what he is not and can never be: a statesman. Barack Obama is indeed the worst, weakest and most dangerously mendacious president in US history. Hoax and Change will not end until Obama's gone from the White House. And between now and then God help us.
French President Francois Hollande feted by the Obamas last year at White House. The date was February 11th- the 35th anniversary of the Iranian Revolution which has caused so much death and destruction in the world, and will cause more if Iran gets the bomb.
1) End the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan-we're still fighting in both countries with no end in sight.
2) Reset relations with Russia that were ruined by the war with pro-western democratic Georgia and the liberation of Abkhazia and South Ossetia-Russia went to war against pro-western democratic Ukraine and liberated then annexed Crimea.
3) Make peace between Israelis and Palestinians with a two state solution -since Obama's been president Israel has twice gone to war with Hamas in Gaza; and Prime Minister Netanyahu has sworn they'd be no Palestinian State while he's in power.
4) End Iran's nuclear weapons program-this is being negotiated as I write.
Obama deeply bowing to Japanese Emperor Akihito possibly as a symbolic gesture for the nuclear bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki which shortened the war and saved a million lives. And now he must apologize to the nation for Bowe Berghdahl and the release of the Taliban Five.
Hitler mocked Chamberlain in private for being such an easily deceived fool. But Iran's Islamonazi leadership knows no such restraint. Their contempt for our weak, gutless, ineffective president (shared by most world leaders) is such that they openly mock him by telling the world how desperate he is for a deal, destroying a fake US aircraft carrier in the Persian Gulf, chanting death to America; and now we learn of their plans for a nuclear EMP attack over the US to shut down and paralyze this country. And in his self-degrading, butt kissing attempt to get a bad deal for his legacy our hopeless putz of a pres goes back for more and more and more humiliation. Obama is like a long-suffering abused wife whose capacity for hurt is endless. Pathetic!
The man on the left tells his people,"If you like your doctor and healthcare plan you can keep them." The man on the right tells his people, "If you like East Jerusalem and your West Bank settlements you can keep them." The one is a cowardly leader that lies and lies and lies; the other is a man of enormous courage and integrity who means what he says and says what he means. So much for Peter Beinard a stupid liberal American Jew who wants to punish Israel for daring to deny fascist racist intolerant Palestinians a terrorist state next door.
THE ULTIMATE ARGUMENT AGAINST THE RADICAL LEFT ON THE MORAL SUPERIORITY OF ISRAEL IN THE MIDDLE EAST
Radical Leftists (like our idiot ill-starred president) are morally blind, mentally deranged, well-meaning fools who search the wide world over looking for victims of oppression and injustice (real or imagined) to cry over and bleed for to feel morally superior and alive. And high on their list of so-called victims are savage, racist, intolerant, liberal-hating Palestinians. Arguably the world's most despicable people in the Palestinians were created by Israel's Arab enemies after the catastrophe of the Six Days War for use as a weapon and propaganda tool to delegitimize the Jewish State and eventually destroy her. That the Palestinians (who didn't exist before 1967) were invented for this evil end is proved by the words of PLO executive Zahir Muhsein, who frankly told a Dutch newspaper in 1977:
Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle
against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality
today there is no difference between Jordanians,
Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and
tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of
a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand
that we posit the existence of a distinct 'Palestinian
people' to oppose Zionism.
"For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state
with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa.
While as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa,
Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we
reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even
a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan."
(PLO executive committee member Zahir Muhsein, in a 1977
interview with the Dutch newspaper Trouw.)
Barack Obama: a desperate man with time running out on his achievement poor presidency threatening Israel with a UN resolution on a two state solution it doesn't give him a deal.
Following Britain's David Cameron, Canada's Stephen Harper, Australia's Tony Abbot and the leaders of Germany, Italy, Spain and other EU states it seems that our feckless, blundering, lead-from-behind president was dragged kicking and screaming Thursday to congratulate Bibi Netanyahu on his historic, landslide election victory-when the Israeli people said no to 1999 and the catastrophic mistake they made by removing him from office in favor of Ehud Barak: the so-called peace candidate from Israel's delusional Left who tried and predictably failed to negotiate a two state solution with Yasser Arafat that ended in the disaster of the Second Intifada.
Thank you, Mr. President, for upholding the Jewish people’s right to a Jewish state in our historic homeland, and for boldly defending that right at the United Nations. And thank you for strengthening the unbreakable alliance between our two nations during your Presidency.” [March 20, 2013]
On the following day Israeli President Shimon Peres awarding Obama the Presidential Medal of Distinction (in Israel) said this at the ceremony:
“This [Presidential Medal of Distinction] speaks to your tireless work to make Israel strong. And peace possible. Your presidency has given the close ties between Israel and the United States a new height. A sense of intimacy. A vision for the future. The people of Israel are particularly moved by your unforgettable contribution to their security. To defending our skies. To the collaboration in the domain of intelligence, which is the right way to preempt bloodshed. The diplomatic and military bonds between us have reached an unprecedented level.”
All this praise from the two highest Israeli leaders would have been enough for any US president for benefiting a true, trusted friend and ally. But Barack Hussein Obama isn't just any US president. From the day he entered office he was obsessed with the notion that he'd succeed where his predecessors had failed. And that he'd be the one who'd make history and broker a two state solution between Palestinians and Israel.
But 70 days into office an anvil fell on Obama's unrealistic head: Bibi Netanyahu became Israel's prime minister making reasonable demands on the extremist Palestinians that made negotiations for a two state solution unfeasible: "recognize Israel's right to exist as a Jewish State," said Bibi, "and give up demands for East Jerusalem and a right of return for millions of Palestinian refugees." And what did Obama do in response to this? What he's done with many of our enemies: he went into appeasement mode thinking he could change Bibi's mind in moderating his demands, and pulled out all the stops in giving aid to Israel.
But it failed. Bibi, though thankful to Obama for all the aid, was not about to repeat the mistakes of Ehud Barak with a Palestinian leadership that differed little in character from Yasser Arafat. Obama was mortified. He had bent over backwards to accommodate Israel and been its good friend not because it was the right thing to do, but with an ulterior motive that Netanyahu rightly refused to respect. Stupidly thinking in his confused leftist mind that Netanyahu not the Palestinians was the obstacle to peace, and that Israel had a real peace partner in Mahmoud Abbas (as if he were another Anwar Sadat) Obama would then work behind the scenes with American political operatives in Israel to bring Netanyahu down. And that failed too making Obama look weak, ineffective and foolish.
Besides himself with rage over feeling betrayed Obama is now threatening as a last resort to go to the UN Security Council for a resolution on a two state solution. But that didn't work in 1947 when the partition of Palestine into Jewish and Arab states (accepted by the Jews) was rejected by the Arab League who chose war instead and lost. And it isn't going to work now as Israel will absolutely not return to the pre-1967 borders giving sworn Moslem-Arab Jew hating enemies more land; and there is no one who can force Israel to do so-especially with the unbreakable courageous defiant Bibi Netanyahu at the helm of a nuclear armed state that could devastate the Middle East in minutes and sink the world economy.
In short, the worse case scenario for Israel is using the Samson Option (rattling the nuclear sabre in private) to end any proposed damaging UN sanctions for noncompliance with a two state resolution. And realistically, who would risk the lives of millions and a world-wide depression for the despicable, hate driven, medieval Palestinians becoming a state with East Jerusalem for its capital? Obama? Russia? China? France? This is why a UN resolution on a two state solution (if it ever happens) will fail; and Obama again will be defeated by Netanyahu adding to his legacy of folly and failure.
Text of PM Bibi Netanyahu's recent speech to the US Congress
"We must also find a way to forge a lasting peace with the Palestinians. Two years ago, I publicly committed to a solution of two states for two peoples: A Palestinian state alongside the Jewish state.
I am willing to make painful compromises to achieve this historic peace. As the leader of Israel, it is my responsibility to lead my people to peace.
This is not easy for me. I recognize that in a genuine peace, we will be required to give up parts of the Jewish homeland. "
Netanyahu Campaign 2015
Declares definitively that if he was returned to office he would never establish a Palestinian state
On Saturday February 7, 2009 (the 38th day of the year*) just four days after radical terrorist Shiite Iran entered the Space Age by launching its first orbiting satellite (see), and three days before two Russian and US satellites were totally obliterated in an unprecedented collision over Siberia (see) Vice President Joe Biden (born 49 weeks into World War II**) was in Munich, Germany (symbol of war causing duplicity, naïvety and appeasement) foolishly offering Iran and Russia olive branches of peace. Rightly called by Heritage Foundation's Nile Gardiner "one of the weakest projections of U.S. leadership on foreign soil in recent memory (see)" Biden's speech foreshadowed the misjudgments, strategic blunders and foreign policy disasters to come, and are now being compounded.
*38 is 1938 abbreviated.
**Biden was born November 20, 1942.
Then on March 31-7 weeks from Biden's February 7th Munich speech-on the 70th day of the Obama presidency Bibi Netanyahu (for the second time in 9 years) became Israel's 9th Prime Minister. Ominously the dates February 7 and March 31, 2009 were 70 years, 4 months and 70 years 6 months from September 29, 1938. That was the day of historic infamy and folly when Neville Chamberlain, mistaking Hitler for a statesman and Nazi Germany for a normal European power with legitimate political grievances, agreed to the Munich Pact ceding the Sudetenland to Germany.
Now fast forward six years later to Netanyahu's recent address to Congress-his 3rd address on the 3rd day of the 3rd month of March during his 3rd term as prime minister*. Sounding like Winston Churchill warning that the Munich Pact was a bad deal for Great Britain and the peace of Europe Netanyahu warned about the catastrophe that awaits the Middle East and world peace if radical jihadist Islamic Iran's nuclear weapons program isn't completely shut down along with their global terrorist activities.
*Since his 1st term in the 90s Netanyahu has had two consecutive term. He's now running for a 3rd consecutive term .
Now here is where it gets profound. The speech which started at precisely 11:11 am with the first "thank you" ran for approximately 40 minutes to the last "thank you" and (when the 7 Hebrew words from Deuteronomy 31:6 are added) amazingly totalled up to 3876* words. What is amazing and seems ominous and could be prophetic about the speech's word count (apart from its prescient message) is that 3876, whch is headed by the number 38, is a multiple of 1938 twice (1938 + 1938 = 3876) giving us the year of the disastrous Munich Pact.
*Strangely, Netanyahu's speech was 76 years from the 1938 signing of the Munich Pact (see).
BIDEN , KERRY AND ISAAC HERZOG MEET IN MUNICH
On February 7, 2015, exactly six years to the date of Biden's portentous Munich speech (and on a Saturday as in 2009) Joe Biden and John Kerry met with Israeli opposition leader, so-called peace candidate, Isaac Herzog in Munich-obviously to discuss policy issues and the administrations support for his election run against Netanyhau for the prime-ministership (see).
Herzog's party (Zionist Union) who recently pulled ahead of Netanyahu's Likud Party in the polls and could possibly win would likely be as disastrous for Israel as was Ehud Barak who defeated Netanyahu in 1999 in a landslide-and whose naïve Chamberlain-like weakness in negotiating an impossible peace (blindly brokered by Bill Clinton) with Jew hating, Arab Nazi Yasser Arafat (thinking he turned moderate) led to the catastrophe of the Second Intifada where hundreds were killed and injured.
It is perhaps a providential warning to the Israeli people that from the Munich meeting between Biden, Kerry and Herzog on Februray 7 (the 38th day of the year) to tomorrow's election on March 17 is amazingly and ominously exactly 38 DAYS.
Reinforcing, I believe, the above tragic sign of coming Munich-like disasters for Israel if Herzog replaces Netanyahu there is the unsettling fact that tomorrow's election is just one day short of the 146th anniversary of Neville Chamberlain's birth*.
*Born March 18, 1869.
To summarize the above: from the 38th day of 2009 when Biden gave his appeasement speech in Munich, to Bibi Netanyahu's third speech to Congress totaling 3876* words (twice 1938), to Biden and Kerry's meeting with the weak, dovish, Barak clone Isaac Herzog at Munich on the 38th day of the year-38 days before tomorrow's election-the defeat of Netanyahu has the Munich disaster written all over it. Which should surprise no one as our unrealistic, self-deceived, foreign policy failed president is hell-bent on repeating Bill Clinton's blunder of trying to force Israel into a two state solution with an enemy who wants a single Arab/Moslem state and victory over Jews.
* As the Munich Pact was agreed to in the 38th year of the 20th century (on the 29th day of September) it was 76 years from Netanyahu's speech-which is oddly reflected in the number 3876 (see). By the way, March 17 is the 76th day of the year.
OBAMA, HERZOG AND SEPTEMBER 29, 1938
The Munich Pact was agreed to by Hitler, Chamberlain, Mussolini and French premier Daladier late in the evening of September 29, 1938, and was signed in the early morning hours of the following day (see). Now when Obama won the presidency on November 4, 2008 it was on the 29th anniversary of the Iran Hostage Crisis-anticipting his intractable problems with Iran (see).
This crisis which painfully humiliated the US for 444 days (and was the opening shot of radical Islamic jihad against our country and the West) resulted from Jimmy Carter abandoning the US friendly Shah and letting Islamic supremacists come to power thinking they were liberal democrats. Now as this same Chamberlain-like naivety guides Barack Obama's negotiations with Iran (he now calls the mullahs "US allies" and its leadership "moderate" and no longer sponsoring terror) and his backing of Isaac Herzog's party in Israel, it is fascinating to note that the number 29 (another symbol of Munich appeasement giving us the day not the year) dominates these relationships. This can be seen in the birth dates of Obama and Herzog, and elsewhere as you will see below, hence:
Obama was born 8-4-1961 and Herzog ten months earlier on 9-22-1960 (see).
8+4+1+9+6+1 = 29
9+2+2+1+9+6+0 = 29
The birth dates of both Obama and Herzog total 29 corresponding to the 29th day of September 1938 when the Munich Pact was agreed to; and to the 29th anniversary of the Iran Hostage Crisis when Obama was elected president-as he's repeating with Iran the same Munich-like appeasement that characterized Chamberlain's relationship with Hitler.
ELECTION DAY MARCH 17, 2015, AND MUNICH 29
The question now is this: with Isaac Herzog overtaking Netanyahu in the polls (due mostly to a weak Israeli economy) could tomorrow's election be 1999 all over again with Netanyahu being defeated by a weak Chamberlain-like dovish candidate like Ehud Barak? Only God knows what the outcome will be; but I may have discovered numeric signs that warn Israel of a catastrophe if Herzog becomes Israel's tenth prime minister (sharing it with Tzipi Livini). What follows is truly amazing and possibly ominous.
From Thursday, September 22, 1960 (Isaac Herzog's birth)
To Tuesday, March 17, 2015 (The Israeli election)
Result: 19,899 days (see).
You will notice that number of days separating Isaac Herzog's birth from election day has the year 1999 encoded in it-the year Ehud Barak defeated Netanyahu. Moreover, in calculating the number of days separating Ehud Barak's birth from Herzog's we get what looks like another inauspicious sign:
From Thursday, February 12, 1942 (Ehud Barak's birth) (see)
To Thursday, September 22, 1960 (Isaac Herzog's birth)
Result: 6797 days (see).
Why is this number inauspicious? Add up the digits,
6+7+9+7 = 29
But there is more. In counting the number of days from Netanyahu's birth to tomorrow's election this is what results:
From: Friday, October 21, 1949 (Netanyahus's birth)
To Tuesday, March 17, 2015
Result: 23,888 days (see)
Now add up the digits
2+3+8+8+8 = the unlucky inauspicious Munich 29.
If Netanyahu doesn't continue as Israel's prime minister until Obama leaves office (and he's replaced by a pro-Israel president) these next 22 months could be an Obama-Herzog created hell for Israel-like it was under Clinton when peace negotiations broke down between Ehud Barak and the evil Yasser Arafat.
For those interested in checking my word count of Netanyahu's speech to Congress below is the Washington Post transcript. However, to get the proper count you need to eliminate the advertisements together with the words (APPLAUSE) (LAUGHTER) and (SPEAKING IN HEBREW).
To Ayatollah Khamenei Supreme leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran:
