Israel says Republicans Full of Crap

Its no secret that Republicans will say anything to try to hurt President Obama, so it should be no surprise that the GOP candidates have recently labeled him as an enemy to Israel. Take Gov. Perry and Gov. Romney’s outlandish lies statements this week:

Perry: “Simply put, we would not be here today at the precipice of such a dangerous move if the Obama policy in the Middle East wasn’t naive, arrogant, misguided and dangerous…The Obama policy of moral equivalency which gives equal standing to the grievances of Israelis and Palestinians, including the orchestrators of terrorism, is a dangerous insult.”

Romney: “[Obama’s] repeated efforts over three years to throw Israel under the bus and undermine its negotiating position.”

Humorously, Israel (at least publicly) doesn’t share this view. According to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Obama’s block of the Palestinian unilateral push for statehood was a “badge of honor.” He even went on to say:

“I want to thank you, Mr. President, for standing with Israel and supporting peace. We both agree that Palestinians and Israelis should sit down and negotiate. This is the only way to get a stable and durable peace.”

Obviously, Netanyahu wouldn’t say anything to jeopardize their relationship with America, but his statements are in stark contrast to the “Obama-killed-Israel” rhetoric coming from the GOP. It was blatantly irresponsible for the GOP candidates to undermine our Foreign Policy at such an important moment, and even more damaging to do so while the world eye’s are focused on NY for the UN delegation. Its good to see Bibi stick up for Obama, and that he wouldn’t let our partisan politics affect the very real and very dangerous situation.

“Stop Complaining”

One group President Obama probably didn’t think he’d need to sell himself to Black voters. Unfortunately, with record numbers for unemployment for blacks, even his strongest base is quite fed up. To try to quell their fears, Obama took an interesting route with the Congressional Black Caucus: he told them to stop complaining.

“I need your help….Take off your bedroom slippers. Put on your marching shoes…Shake it off. Stop complainin’. Stop grumblin’. Stop cryin’. We are going to press on. We have work to do.”

Obviously he delivered his message a little better than Bill Cosby did back in back in 2005. Obama was telling the people to rise above the rhetoric and take matters into their own hands. While few of those in the Caucus could actually believe they’d be better served by a Republican Party who wants to limit entitlement programs that help the poor, Obama does still need vocal support.

But if he really wanted the Black Caucus to get loud, he should have just taken them to see a movie in the theater.

Guns R Us

Mexico — Needless to say, Mexico is pretty pissed at the US for Operation: Fast and Furious. As was reported back in back in July, the DOJ and ATF conducted a joint sting-operation to find the heart of gun-running, drug dealing Mexican Cartels by selling them guns equipped with tracking devices. Unfortunately the GPS trackers died and the machine guns were lost. That means that the only way to track the guns was to find them at crime scenes. So far Mexican authorities claim over 150 deaths from weapons traced from the sting.

Here’s the best part, Mexico had no frickin’ clue that the gun-swapping sting operation was ever taking place. Our government just flooded their country with arms in an attempt to stop crime, and instead we helped it flourish. This is so embarassing, and even more so that American is ignoring how serious this is. Mexicans have every reason to be furious with the US, and don’t be surprised if house-cleaning statistics drop significantly.

Saudi Women get to Vote

Oh how they’re going to regret this one. The Saudi Kingdom announced that Saudi women will finally get to vote and run in elections starting in 2015. The Kingdom obviously realized it needs to conform somewhat in light of the revolutions taking place elsewhere in the middle east.

Of course, Saudi women still have extremely limited freedoms. They have to remain covered at all times, and aren’t even allowed to drive (actually that just makes sense). All women still need a male sponsor to approve travel, work, and get certain medical procedures.

At least they get to check a box in a rigged election now.

FBI Pays out Bulger Tipsters

The FBI has reported that it stayed true to its word and paid out $2.1 million in rewards for Tips leading to the arrest of James “Whitey” Bulger. The payments were paid out to multiple people who’s information brought down the notorious Boston crime lord, famously characterized by Jack Nicholson in The Departed.

I’m sure that the GOP is looking into finding 2.1 million in Medicare to cut to make up for the difference. They also decried it as taking down a serious Boston-area Job Creator.

CERN studies lead to time travel?

Scientists from CERN made quite a stir last week when they released figures from a 3 year study that tracked sub-atomic particles called “neutrinos” that were clocked travelling faster than the speed of light.

Now many dreamers say this this might be the key to Time Travel. Einstein theorized that E=MC2, or that Energy equals mass x speed of light. While the speedy neutrinos seem to debunk this important theory, others say that the discrepancy can be explained by alternate dimensions. So if the neutrinos can hop dimensions and come back to our plane, then it could be possible for our masses to do the same thing.

Sounds a bit preposterous, but just a week ago, so did something being faster than the speed of light.
