The Three Best and Three Worst Policy Developments of 2014

Exactly one year ago, we looked at the best and worst policy developments of 2013. Now it’s time for a look back at 2014 to see what’s worth celebrating and what are reasons for despair. Here’s the good news for 2014. 1. Gridlock – I’ve been arguing for nearly three years that divided government is […]

‘Palestine’ Fails At The UN – And The Real Story Behind It

 http://cdn.inquisitr.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/Abbas-e1410682876785.jpg
 
Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinian Authority finally submitted their resolution to the UN Security Council last night and it came up for a vote today.

Before we look at how it turned out and why, let’s examine what led up to this.

Mahmoud Abbas originally presented this December 17th  as a unilateral attempt to get the UN behind defining ‘Palestine’ as the areas the PLO wants for a state…essentially the pre ’67 boundaries, or as former Israeli diplomat Abba Eban aptly referred to them, the Auschwitz Lines. Of course, this violated both the Oslo Accords and the Road Map the PLO had signed, but then they never lived up to those agreements anyway.

Since the unity agreement with Hamas, Abbas has seen his credibility fade even farther than it already had. Hamas had shown no signs of giving up sovereignty in Gaza to Abbas and Fatah, and with Abbas now in year ten of what was originally supposed to be a four year term, Hamas  was pressing him to put together elections. Abbas attempted to compete with Hamas for the support of the Palestinian ‘street’ by ramping up the Third Intifada with attacks against Israel’s civilians and a speech in the UN accusing Israel of genocide, which hardened a lot of attitudes in Israel. But he was still in a position where he needed to appear to take the lead. So he went to the UN, ranting that if the UNSC failed to vote to pass his resolution, he would ‘cut off all dealing with Israel (what ‘dealings’?) and sue Israel via the International Criminal Court (ICC) for war crimes.

The original draft called for a complete Israeli ‘withdrawal’ to the pre-’67 lines by 2017, Jerusalem as a ‘shared capitol’ whatever that means, and a ‘just solution’ for the refugees of 1948..the Arab ones, that is, not the Jews. The French had come up with an alternative draft, so the Jordanian ambassador and the PLO representatives got together with the French and came up with a second draft. As Abbas said, they took certain parts of it and “added Palestinian  observations.”

The French draft originally called for recognition of Israel as the Jewish State. Abbas and Saeb Erekat got that removed, and hardened the language considerably. Now, East Jerusalem was to be the capitol of Palestine exclusively, Arab refugees were to be allowed a Right of Return, and all of the Palestinian terrorists in Israel’s jails were to be released. It also calls for Israeli occupation forces to be replaced by “a third-party presence.” Or in other words, a force to shield Fatah and Hamas terrorists from Israeli retaliation and give them a base where they can train, recruit and launch attacks from with impunity.

But wait, there’s more. Check out this language:

Affirms the urgent need to attain, no later than 12 months after the adoption of this resolution, a just, lasting and comprehensive peaceful solution that brings an end to the Israeli occupation since 1967 and fulfills the vision of two independent, democratic and prosperous states, Israel and a sovereign, contiguous and viable State of Palestine living side by side in peace and security within mutually and internationally recognized borders.

Since the Arab-occupied parts of Judea, Samaria and Gaza have never been ‘democratic’ in
the way normal people conceive of the word,that simply means there would be at least one election if this were to go through..the one Hamas wins,just as they won the last one. Not only that,but note the use of the word ‘contiguous.’

http://news.bbc.co.uk/furniture/in_depth/world/2001/israel_and_palestinians/key_maps/armistice_map.gif

If ‘Palestine’ is contiguous, obviously Israel will not be. So along with swamping Israel with homicidal ‘refugees’ , releasing the current crop of experienced terrorists from Israel jails and forcing Israel back to indefensible borders, this resolution calls for a further split in Israeli territory between Gaza and the proposed Abbasistan in Judea and Samaria.

Even if the UNSC had voted for this travesty, Israel had already made it known they weren’t going to abide by it.No sane country would.

What happened next is of interest.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry got involved at that point, asking Abbas not to present the current draft resolution to the UNSC. His reasons had nothing to do with it being unfair or in violation of two treaties the U.S. was a signatory to as well as the Palestinian Authority. What he asked Abbas to do was to wait until after the Israeli elections in March because putting this out now would strengthen the Israeli right.

But Abbas presented it anyway, via Jordan, the Arab representative on the UNSC.

What happened next was even  more curious. Walk with me a moment and I’ll explain.

The UN Security Council is composed of five permanent members and ten rotating ones. The five permanent members – America, Russia China, France and Britain- are a remnant of what the victors looked like after WWII and are the ones with a veto.The rest of the UN membership is divided into regional groups  and the rotating members are chosen by a vote in their particular group. Israel, by the way,  has never been a member of the Security Council and never will be because Israel is  lumped in with the Arab nations, which is why a marginal country like Jordan is that group’s representative rather than the most powerful and economically advanced country in that group.

The rotating members serve for two years, and the current members include Argentina, Australia,  Chad, Chile, Jordan, Lithuania, Luxemburg, Nigeria, South Korea and Rwanda.

Argentina, Australia, Luxemburg, Korea and Rwanda have their terms ending in 2014, and they’re going to be replaced in 2015 by  Angola, Malaysia, New Zealand, Spain, and Venezuela. Or to put it another way, three pro-Israel members ( Australia, South Korea and Rwanda) are going to be replaced 5 countries that definitely aren’t, including one Muslim nation that doesn’t even recognize Israel’s existence and another one (Spain) whose parliament has already voted to recognize ‘Palestine.’


While the draft resolution was presented yesterday, Abbas and Jordan had full control over when it was voted on. Common sense would indicate that they would wait until the new year for a vote, when they were almost certain to get the nine votes it would take to pass.

Instead, the resolution was brought to the Council today by Jordanian Ambassador Dina Kawar for consideration today, with the present membership. Eight countries voted in favor of the motion – China, France, Russia, Argentina, Chad, Chile, Jordan, Luxembourg. Two countries voted against it, Australia and The United States. The other five, South Korea, Britain, Nigeria, Rwanda and Lithuania abstained.

I want to  point out something here. While this particular resolution would have been ignored by Israel even if it had passed, every country that voted for this voted in principal for the ethnic cleansing of 500,00 Jews, the barring of Jews permanently from their holiest religious sites, and for an Israel helpless against terrorist assaults.

And they also voted to dignify with statehood an autocratic  ‘government’ composed of vicious, and corrupt kleptocrats on the one hand and genocidal murderers on the other.

US State Department spokesman Jeff Rathke said that the resolution “sets arbitrary deadlines for reaching a peace agreement and for Israel’s withdrawal from the West Bank, and those are more likely to curtail useful negotiations than to bring them to a successful conclusion.”

“Further, we think that the resolution fails to account for Israel’s legitimate security needs, and the satisfaction of those needs, of course, integral to a sustainable settlement, ” he said.

So…what’s going on here? There are two possibilities, and the game that’s actually being played here will be revealed by what ‘Palestine’ does next.

You’ll remember that in his earlier remarks,  Secretary Kerry didn’t tell Abbas that the U.S. didn’t support the resolution per se. He asked Abbas to wait until after the Israeli elections. The Obama Administration, like the Clinton Administration before them wants Netanyahu out and a Left wing government headed by Labor’s  easily manipulated Yitzhak Herzog and the ever flexible Tzipi Livni in.

The U.S. also didn’t want to have to use its veto and risk upsetting Arab allies now involved in a coalition against IS. So tonight’s  exercise could very easily have been kabuki theater in which everyone got what they wanted – Abbas gained some street cred for going to the UN, The U.S. didn’t need to use its veto, and Britain got out of having to vote against the resolution, which would have inflamed the large part of its population that loathes Israel. Since Australia, Rwanda and South Korea would have  voted no anyway if it came down to it, all they needed was one more abstention. Netanyahu did part of the work by convincing his friend, the pro-Israel Jonathan Goodluck to have Nigeria abstain.

If the Arabs whom call themselves Palestinians avoid going back to the UNSC after this, concentrate  on the ICC and other channels and reintroduce this after March, when the Obama Administration will know whether its efforts to oust Netanyahu succeeded, we’ll know what happened today backstage, especially if the U.S. abstains or votes yes after Israel’s elections for substantially the same resolution.

This, by the way, is the scenario I lean towards.

The other possibility is that the Palestinians simply miscalculated. The resolution only failed to pass by one vote,and it would have almost certainly passed had the vote been scheduled in 2015, barring a U.S. veto. I personally doubt the second scenario since the Palestinians could simply have waited and been ensured of it passing.

If Abbas submits this again shortly after the new UNSC members take their seats, then we’ll know that this was indeed a simple miscalculation and that today’s events are going to be repeated, but probably with a different outcome – unless the U.S. vetoes it. W’ll see if they do.

Call Fort Hood massacre what it is: Terrorism!

Over five years ago (November 5, 2009) at the Fort Hood military post in Texas, Army Major Nidal Hasan, a radical American-born Islamist opened fire on several of his fellow unarmed soldiers who were about to deploy. By the time the carnage had ended, 13 people were dead and 32 were injured. During his trial, Hasan said he was motivated by al Qaeda, the Taliban, and other groups considered by the United States to be supporters of terrorism. After avoiding the situation for years, the Obama administration eventually made the determination that this incident was nothing more than a disgruntled employee involved in a case of workplace violence. Now, under the 2015 National Defense Authorization Act, the Secretary of Defense has the latitude to determine if an incident such as this was motivated by a terrorist organization, and the Department of Defense can decide who receives military decorations. Today, lawyers for the military and civilian personnel who were killed or wounded at Fort Hood used this new latitude given the Secretary to file a petition with the Pentagon asking that the incident be declared an act of terrorism. Attorney Neal Sher told Reuters that the designation could make military personnel in […]

A frightening global financial markets endgame predicted for 2015! (Video)

Nothing Says ‘Super Bowl’ Party Like Barack Obama Toilet Paper!!
Or, if that doesn’t HIT the spot, might I suggest The Obama Punching Bag instead?

Gerald Celente of Trends Journal paints a grim picture for the global economy in this video interview with Greg Hunter of USA Watchdog!

It may happen in 2015 or the Federal Reserve may be able to keep the ‘financial game’ that it’s playing propped-up for a time beyond that point, but according to Celente it is all going to come tumbling down in an extremely painful way!

And while the video below is longer than most will typically have the attention span to watch, given the fact that your financial well-being may depend on some of the information provided it is worth taking the time and my bet is that you will be interested in hearing what he has to say.

A snippet from the video…

Celente goes on to say, “In our business, trend forecasting is based on the understanding that current events form future trends.  So, we take the information we have and analyze it and see how it will play out and what the implications will be.”

“It’s becoming more and more difficult because we’re getting phony information continually.  So, whether it has to do with geopolitics, economics or whatever it is, they are cooking the books and spinning lies.  So, it is harder and harder to see where some of these things are going”

“We don’t have capitalism any more.  The merger of state and corporate powers is called fascism, and when you are looking at the rigging of the game, it’s called bankism. ”

“This thing should have collapsed a long time ago, but they keep making up new rules and a new game.  This is nothing more than a central bank confidence game, and you can tie it all back to bankism.”

How long can it go on?  Celente says, “All it takes is a shock wave to end the game.  You don’t know where it’s going to come from, but the stage is being set for a shock wave. . . . On one end, they can keep the interest rates low. ”

“On another end, they can even invent another quantitative easing (money printing) scheme.  But on the bigger end, you have volatility in the world commodity markets and geopolitics that could end this scam in a second”

“All the pieces keep adding up into a very serious economic and geopolitical game changer for 2015.”

Obama’s unconstitutional actions

Bill Jacobson’s op-ed for USA Today highlights in outstanding detail President Obama’s unconstitutional actions. Let’s start with this: Three areas of the Obama administration going it alone stand out: Immigration, Obamacare and the environment. Immigration is perhaps the most dramatic example. Legalizing and eventually providing a path to citizenship for the estimated 10-12 million illegal […]

Why Michael Grimm Shouldn’t Resign

http://thedailybanter.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/Rep.-Michael-Grimm-R-NY-Facebook.jpg

Congressman Michael Grimm (R-NY), the lone GOP representative in the New York City area (Staten Island) has announced that he will resign effective Jan. 5, two weeks after he pleaded guilty to felony tax evasion.

What Grimm actually did was to under-report his employees’ wages while he was owner of the Manhattan restaurant Healthalicious.

Grimm’s decision was apparently made after a conversation with Speaker John Boehner.

I think this was a huge mistake on Grimm’s part.Instead of caving, he should have looked Boehner in the eye and told him, ‘I’ll resign right after Charlie Rangel does.’

Why should he disenfranchise his constituents or be held to a higher standard than Charlie Rangel?

Tax evasion is a crime, no doubt. But if you compare what Michael Grimm did to what Charlie Rangel got away with, Rep. Grimm would have been far better off not pleading guilty and taking his chances with the House.

If nothing else, that would have pointed out, yet again, that Democrats, particularly black Democrats are held to far different standards than Republicans by their peers and especially by the media.

Another “Oops” Moment for Paul Krugman

I’m tempted to feel a certain degree of sympathy for Paul Krugman. As a leading proponent of the notion that bigger government stimulates growth (a.k.a., Keynesian economics), he’s in the rather difficult position of rationalizing why the economy was stagnant when Obama first took office and the burden of government spending was rising. And he […]

Environmentalists and energy advocates agree: Ethanol is a failure

We all expect to pay a price for missing deadlines—fail to pay a parking ticket on time, and you may find a warrant out for your arrest. People have lost their jobs when they can’t get the work done on schedule. Students, who turn in papers late, get lower grades—maybe even fail the class. But the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) can apparently miss deadlines (many) with impunity. For the past two years, the EPA has failed to meet the statutory deadline under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), requiring the agency to tell refiners how much ethanol to blend into the nation’s motor fuels. In November 2013, the EPA did make an attempt to announce the proposed 2014 blend levels—which by then were already months past the legally mandated deadline. The EPA surprised and pleased the RFS opponents when it utilized its authority to adjust the mandate and took market conditions into consideration. The EPA set the proposed 2014 standard to a level lower than 2013’s, even though the law requires increasing amounts. Ethanol producers, who were expecting the usual uptick, loudly opposed the reduction. They made so much noise, the EPA agreed to reconsider. To date, the 2014 standards have […]

Our Weasel Of The Week Nominees!

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/89/256833910_dc5e794df2.jpg

It’s time again for the Watcher’s Council’s ‘Weasel Of The Week’ nominations, where we pick our choices to compete for Award the famed Golden Weasel to a public figure who particularly deserves to be slimed and mocked for his or her dastardly deeds during the week. Every Tuesday morning, tune in for the Weasel of the Week nominations

Here are this weeks’ nominees:

Joshua Williams (St. Louis County PD photo)
‘Peaceful Protester’ Lefty Media Darling And Serial Arsonist Joshua Williams!!

VA Right:  I am going to nominate Joshua Williams who had become the poster boy for advocating peaceful protests in Ferguson, Mo and was caught torching a Berkeley convenience store last week. So much for peaceful protests.

On Oct. 13, he was photographed walking arm-in-arm with author and activist Cornel West toward the St. Louis University campus where protesters staged a sit-in.

 http://www.americanbar.org/content/dam/aba/publications/gp_solo_magazine/2013_may_june/anolik.jpg

 The Razor :My weasel of the week is the Airline Industry. Since they were bailed out after the 9-11 attacks the industry as a whole has shown its gratitude. As the New Yorker notes in Why Airlines Want to Make You Suffer, “The necessity of degrading basic service provides a partial explanation for the fact that, in the past decade, the major airlines have done what they can to make flying basic economy, particularly on longer flights, an intolerable experience.” As someone who has watched the airfares to Europe over the past year, the price of gasoline has fallen by almost 40% while tickets haven’t budged. Just something to remember the next time the industry goes cap-in-hand to Congress seeking more taxpayer cash.

http://www.thestar.com/content/dam/thestar/uploads/2014/10/9/1412885793451.jpg
President of the 57 U.S. States and Fluent Austrian Speaker Barack Hussein Obama!!

 The Noisy Room : I nominate Barack Obama this week for his preemptive emptying of Gitmo.

The Obama administration hopes to transfer dozens of
detainees from Guantanamo Bay in the next six months as part of a
stepped-up effort to reduce the population there, according to a
U.S. official.

As many as five detainees are expected to be moved from the
detention facility in the next few days, with several more transfers
anticipated in early 2015, the official said on condition of anonymity.

The news comes less than a week after the United States announced it
had repatriated four detainees from Guantanamo to Afghanistan leaving 132 detainees at the U.S. naval base in southeastern Cuba.

This is one instance where Obama is transparent. His motives on Cuba had
a great deal to do with eliminating Gitmo. Open the gates and free the
poor, misunderstood Jihadists. His betrayal of all those who have lost
loved ones on 9/11 and in various other terrorist attacks is
breathtaking. Anything to support Islam and screw the infidel. Obama is
one weasel who stays true to his Muslim roots.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/04/Walmart_exterior.jpg
Wal-Mart. Yes, Wal-Mart!

Nice Deb : It is with deep sadness that I must nominate my beloved Walmart for continuing to fund racial agitator and shake-down artist Al Sharpton whose extreme, race-baiting rhetoric has long contributed to racial hatred and violence for close to 30 years.

The National Legal and Policy Center wrote a letter to Walmart on 12/22 asking them to no longer contribute to Sharpton and his organization, the National Action Network (NAN). As of yet there has been no response from Walmart, which is decidedly craven and dare I say, weaselly of them.

http://www.trivworks.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/HuffingtonPost-Logo1.gif

The Right Planet : In typical Pavlovian fashion, the Huffington Post pins the blame for the execution-style murders of two NYPD officers, PO Rafael Ramos and PO Wenjen Liu, on … wait for it … the NRA! After listening to countless liberal commentators urge people to not blame an entire group, i.e. protesters, on the actions of one deranged individual, Ismaayl Brinsley, in the senseless murder of two NYPD police officers, I predicted it wouldn’t take long before the left blamed the NRA. Well, the HuffPo didn’t let me down … once again proving that you just can’t fix stupid.

Ayala Shapira,11, was seriously injured in a firebomb attack on December 25, 2014 while riding in the car with her father near the West Bank settlement of Maale Shomron. (Photo: courtesy)
Two ‘Palestinian’ Terrorist Cowards TBA

JoshuaPundit : My Weasel Nomination is a little out of the norm since the nominees names haven’t been released yet,although they soon will be. It goes out to two inhabitants of Samarian village of Azun, near Nablus, a city in the Arab-occupied Area A part of Judea and Samaria.

These brave Arab warriors targeted 11-year-old Ayala Shapira when she was riding in her car with her father and firebombed them. Her father, Avner was lightly injured but Ayala was the main target. She received third degree burns over most of her body and almost died. She’s still in critical condition, and if she lives she will have to have her entire face reconstructed.

The Shin Bet found the perpetrators and they readily confessed, admitting they had received the firebombs from a third party, walked along a road leading from Ma’aleh Shomron to Matan where the Shapiras live and waited by the side of the road for a good target with Israeli plates to pass by. Neither reportedly expressed any remorse for what they had done, which is fairly typical.

Weasel is something of a misnomer here, as it insults weasels. These creatures are something far worse. They are Amalek personified.

Well, there it is! Are these worthy weasels or what? Check back Thursday to see which Weasel walks off with the statuette of shame!

Make sure to tune in every Monday for the Watcher’s Forum.

And remember, every Wednesday, the Council has its weekly contest with the members nominating two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council. The votes are cast by the Council, and the results are posted on Friday morning.

It’s a weekly magazine of some of the best stuff written in the blogosphere, and you won’t want to miss it...or any of the other fantabulous Watcher’s Council content.

And don’t forget to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter..’cause we’re cool like that, y’know?
