When Will We Finally Hold Wicked Hillary Accountable?


Clearly, Hillary Clinton is a sociopath, willing to sacrifice any and everything to get what she wants.  Donna Brazile’s book exposed how Hillary and her DNC minions stole the presidential nomination from Bernie Sanders.  A normal person would run for cover, thankful he is not in jail.  But not Hillary.  This sick woman remains laser-focused, obsessed with plotting to reverse the election to steal Trump’s presidency.

Hillary is acting exactly like the little girl in the movie The Bad Seed.  In the movie, seemingly perfect and adorable eight-year-old Rhoda assumed she would win the perfect penmanship medal.  Her classmate Claude won the medal.  Outraged, Rhoda cornered Claude and demanded that he give her his medal.  When Claude refused, Rhoda murdered Claude and stole it.

In the midst of a tsunami of details surfacing regarding Hillary’s multiple character flaws, hypocrisy, and possibly facing thirteen criminal charges, Hillary remains defiant.  Still hell-bent on overturning the election, Hillary said, there are “lots of questions” about the legitimacy of Trump’s election.  Incredible.

The same way nothing distracted Rhoda from stealing Claude’s medal, Hillary will not be distracted from stealing Trump’s seat in the Oval Office.  Hillary is truly a scary sociopath.

In the movie, Rhoda deceptively came across, prim, proper, well mannered, and lovely.  Over the years, it has been obnoxious watching the DNC and fake news media portraying wicked Hillary as our superior in terms of compassion for women and minorities.  This is the same woman who said it is okay for a mother to kill her baby even on the day of the child’s birth.

More and more of Hillary’s crimes are coming to light: getting rich from selling influence, jeopardizing national security, and so on.  Rhoda’s mom was devastated when she learned her daughter’s history of taking out people who got in her way.  Hillary has a similar history of crushing little people on her money-green brick road to the White House.

As an attorney determined to win at any cost, Hillary destroyed the life of a twelve-year-old rape victim. 

Ambassador Chris Stevens feared a 9-11 anniversary Islamic terrorist attack on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya.  Ambassador Stevens begged secretary of state Hillary Clinton for extra security.  Hillary denied Ambassador Stevens’s request because it would undermine the Obama administration’s lie that Obama ended terrorism.

Ambassador Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, and Tyrone Woods were killed in a well planned, heavily armed Islamic terrorist attack.  Islamic terrorists paraded Ambassador Stevens’s dead body through the streets as their trophy.  In essence, Hillary sacrificed four American lives for Obama’s re-election, which helped her quest to become president.

Pat Smith’s son, Sean, was one of the four American lives Hillary sacrificed in Benghazi.  Hillary looked the grieving mother in the eye and lied to her.  Hillary said Sean’s death was due to an angry mob enraged by an anti-Muslim video.  Pat learned the truth: that the attack was planned, and Hillary denied extra security.  Pat told the public that Hillary lied to her.  Sociopath Hillary sought to brand the gold star mom a liar. 

Always focused on her political ambitions, Hillary put up with Bill’s serial adultery.  When Bill ran for the presidency, Hillary managed his “Bimbo Eruption” team.  Hillary’s team destroyed all the women who went public about their consensual and non-consensual sexual encounters with Bill Clinton.  Keep in mind, folks, that the DNC and fake news media have portrayed Hillary as a super-advocate for women.

We have also learned that Hillary paid for the production of the fake Trump dossier.  I find the fake dossier particularly disgusting because it purposely generates racial hate.  Hillary’s fake dossier said Trump hired prostitutes to urinate on a hotel bed slept in by Barack and Michelle Obama. 

Over the years, numerous books and movies have been released exposing Hillary’s sociopath mindset – Clinton Cash and Dinesh D’Souza’s movie Hillary’s America to name a few.

As I said, a normal person would be focused on staying out of jail.  Like Rhoda’s obsession with owning Claude’s perfect penmanship medal, Hillary remarkably remains obsessed with overturning We the People’s choice for president. 

How much longer will we, the American people, put up with Hillary’s arrogance and sociopath antics and schemes?  It is time for Hillary to quietly slither away, or else we make orange Hillary’s new black.

The Bankruptcy of One Free Grope Politics


As the Moore vs. Franken Trash Olympics continues, liberals like Howard Fineman are going back to the future and renewing the One Free Grope indulgence that once got Bill Clinton out of purgatory, because Al Franken is a “lifelong champion of women’s rights.”

Meanwhile Sean Trende tweets:

I don’t think you can underestimate the degree to which many conservatives have this attitude: (a) we fought a battle over whether character counts, and got our asses handed to us and (b) liberal leaders always circle the wagons around their guys, and ours always cave.

We are past the time for worrying, like former Rep. Thaddeus McCotter, that not enough conservatives have read their Burke or their Russell Kirk.

As I wrote over a year ago: “All I Know is that Gentlemanly Conservatism is Dead.” Or as Gen. Patton said: “Now, I want you to remember that no son of a bitch ever won a war by dying for his country.”

That’s the reason we have President Trump and Steve Bannon. When no conservative ideas are allowed to microaggress the little darlings in their safe spaces in the nation’s schools and universities, because white privilege, we are not in a frank discussion of the issues any more.  We are living under an oppressive regime that labels our right to petition for the redress of grievances as out of bounds. Okay, we are not exactly in a Reign of Terror, but you’d better watch your step.

Hey, One Free Gropers, Trump in the “Access Hollywood” tapes was only talking about pussy grabbing. Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) actually had himself selfied doing the dirty, back when selfies had just been invented! Talk about living on the bleeding edge: so cool! But Franken cares about women’s rights, just like Bill Clinton and Harvey Weinstein, so that makes him special.

The problem for normals is, as Sean Trende suggests, that when you argue that character counts in politics, you open yourself to a flank attack on any question of character, whether you are Richard Nixon defending the Silent Majority from the Sixties Kids, Robert Bork defending originalism from Ted Kennedy, Clarence Thomas defending the right to be a conservative black from liberal sweetie Anita Hill. Next thing you know, George W. Bush gets sideswiped for a DWI, and Donald Trump for a pussy tape.

Why are Democrats reduced to the Politics of October Surprises? I think it must be that the welfare state has nowhere left to turn. It has plundered the economy to hand out loot to its supporters about as far as it can go. It can’t excite workers with visions of retirement sugar plums; it already did that. It can’t excite parents with visions of glorious education for their children; it already did that. It is reduced to promising health insurance to the 30 million in the gap between employer insurance and Medicaid, and to lying about how everybody else will pay less. It is reduced to ignoring black-on-black violence. It is reduced to conjuring up fantastic stories about frying the planet. Or the moral necessity of gay marriage. Only problem is that ordinary people just don’t care about health insurance for the uninsured, or cops mowing down black homeboys, or the wonders of electric cars. These new issues don’t move the needle.

Failing to move the needle with gay marriage and electric cars Democrats advertise their political bankruptcy every day with the politics of personal destruction. Really, what better way to demoralize the bourgeoisie, the middling sort of people, than to accuse its leaders of sexual improprieties? Yes, it’s true, you can successfully gross out college women with locker-room talk and reduce voter turnout among the respectable classes.

Bad boy Vox Day has articulated the tactics needed for the new age. It is: We Don’t Care. The Children? Yeah, we already heard that one. Diversity? That’s racism, straight up. Hate speech? Look in the mirror, pal. Locker-room talk? So what is George Carlin going to do?

Let’s face it: the ruling class wants politics to be about sex scandals because it has nothing positive to offer the American people.

Wake up, ruling class. The politics of the future will be about the injustices you have visited on the middling sort of people: the competition from immigrants, the soaring price of homes, the slave system of college debt, the taxes on labor, the indignities visited on white guys by the diversity SSJW.

And it’s only just begun. Imagine if some political genius got the white working class and the respectable black middle class to vote together. It can’t be that hard. After all, we just elected a man that had never run before for political office. All it takes is a genius or a guy that knows how to hire them.

Pippa Biddle, America's Whitest Reporter, Takes Up the Black Cause


If white people had their own publication, it would be Wired magazine. From top to bottom, this is a uniquely Caucasian experience:  from the white readers, to the white advertisers, to the white employees, to the white town where it is headquartered, to the white subject matter of high tech, to the white owners at Conde Nast, which also owns just about every other magazine on the planet not named Jet or Ebony or Black anything.

Of the 80 people pictured on the masthead of Wired, only two are black.

That is why I was a bit surprised to see Wired magazine recently appoint itself as the arbiter of all things black. Even more surprised at the white writer taking the point position in this crusade on behalf of her absent black brothas and sistahs. 

And finally even more surprised at the target of all this elevated racial consciousness: Me.

The occasion was earlier this month, when Ms. Pippa Biddle of Wired got a burr under her Connecticut estate saddle about the music I use on my videos on YouTube. And she did not care too much for the articles I write for American Thinker either. She said they both were “hate speech.”

She started out well — if awkwardly — enough: “Colin Flaherty is a prolific YouTuber and writer who chronicles violence by African Americans, which, he claims, is a much greater social problem than violence against African Americans.”

We call that the greatest lie of our lifetimes: the hoax of black victimization. All laid out in that scintillating bestseller, Don’t Make the Black Kids Angry.

On YouTube, we document that every day. Several times a day. Even in San Francisco, the home of Wired

Pippa’s “claim” is pretty much it — if you are looking for something to back up her story that telling the truth about black criminality is really just hate speech. On her way to defaming me, she just forgot to provide any examples of hate speech, or show what was wrong in saying black crime and denial is at epidemic proportions.

Funny how often that happens.

Pippa Biddle, though still just a few years out of one of the most exclusive (read expensive) boarding schools in America, Miss Porter’s School for girls in Connecticut, has never been afraid to take on the tough topics.

Her article about shaming people who eat donuts is required reading for people who like reading about Pippa eating donuts.

Pippa and her pals used to take vacations to some deprived corner of the world, spread a little whiteness around, pronounce the natives better for it, and go back home to, in her case, to captain the ski team at Miss Porter’s.

During one of her trips of “Volun-tourism,” Pippa and her pals were building some kind of school or nuclear power plant or whatever white people build in third world hellholes, which is almost always pieced out and sold off before their departing flights leave the runway. She later found out that the locals had to come in at night and tore down everything they had built that day. Then rebuilt it. Turns out that building a wall is a lot more complicated than the ladies at Miss Porter’s school realized: you need a level to make sure the wall is… well, level.

Pippa made a bit of splash in the New York Times when she declared that all the white people traveling to help black people were racist and wrongheaded and harmful. 

It could have been called Don’t Make the Entitled White Rich Girls Angry.

And Pippa was not going to stand for that anymore. Not on her watch.

Instead, Pippa decided to make a living out of writing fairy tales of hate speech the same way she built a wall: without foundation, without expertise, without anything except an overweening whiteness that allowed her to appoint herself as guardian of all things black.

With nothing on the level.

Thanks, Pippa, we got it from here: We are going to continue to document how black crime and violence is wildly out of proportion, and how reporters and public officials and trust fund babies are in denial, deceit, and delusion about it. People like you, Pippa.

But next time you accuse someone of hate speech, it would probably be worth it to provide more proof than just you saying ‘trust me. I was the captain of the ski team at Miss Porter’s.’

I don’t want to be boring, but it’s a lawyer thing called “defamation.” 

It would probably be like someone accusing you of being a pedophile, or Miss Porter being a lousy skier, or one of your rich parents being middle class.

It simply isn’t done. Even if someone else has to come in with lawyers to straighten out your crooked fantasies.

When not educating old-line Connecticut families about the realities of black violence, Colin Flaherty has a heck of a YouTube channel and lots of books that you can buy for less than pennies per word.

Hillary: Corrupt, Clueless, Coddled


It’s really her biggest problem.  She’s been coddled because of her party affiliation.  She’s been coddled by a media that refused to report her ugly side.  She’s been coddled by a base that has been fooled repeatedly.  She’s convinced them she’s highly moral, highly intelligent, highly principled, and somehow represents all women, minorities, and the average American.  

Nothing could be further from the truth.  She’s nothing but a propped-up caricature, propped by that Democratic privilege.  Because of that privilege, the average left-leaning voter knows little or nothing about what a reprobate she is.

So far.

I do think she’s about to be taken down, and thrown under the bus.  The Democratic Party and the media will have no choice in the next year or so to come to that realization.  But I digress.

The specifics:

A big issue is her part in enabling Bill with his sexual predations.  She not only looked the other way as he hit on anything with a skirt, she led the charge against all the women whom he used and abused.  She led the bimbo eruptions effort, destroying the women as being sluts or nuts while her husband ran rampant.  She led the media to defend the indefensible.   And try as they might to defend the Clintons now, in the new race to virtue signal, the media is finally admitting their mistake.

Her ill temper and horrifying personality behind the mask of being nice has been chronicled by one of her major Secret Service defenders and others.  She was censured long ago for being dishonest and mean spirited by her own chairman during the Watergate hearings long ago.   Her money lust and greed were there to see in her cattle futures gains.  Whitewater was a manifestation of this character flaw, gaining personally because of political connections.  Fast forward and you have the attempted heist of White House belongings.  You have them dangling the bait of their political influence to gain money from the second they left the White House.   

With the silence of the media, the Clintons amassed a fortune through speeches, books, and donations.  The threat of their power and the cloak of their privilege kept them riding high.  The final coup de gras was their Clinton Foundation.  That they took donations for Haiti that never got to the recipients was criminal.  That they got cover from the Bush family and the media was atrocious.  I think this was the signal that corrupted the GOP so deeply.  They saw they could get a piece as well.

Clinton Democratic Privilege.  It led to more and more influence peddling.  The hundreds of millions of dollars donated to their foundation and campaigns from illicit people simply continued.  Everyone turned a blind eye to the obvious quid pro quos, corruption, and aggrandizement of power.

Uranium One, with the direct huge speaking fee to Bill, and the well over one hundred million dollars sent to the Foundation by those who benefited from this transaction was despicable.  The irony of all this money coming from rewarding the dratted Russians, hiding behind “the Russian reset,” can’t help but be one of the best cons ever.   All ignored by the media and the Democratic Party.  As Sean Hannity has poignantly asked, who anywhere would think it was a good idea to sell control of 20% of our Uranium to a foreign adversary?  And of all people, to the Russians.

Greed, corruption, and as said before, it’s the Mother of All Scandals.  I’m betting it takes them down.  The hint to follow is that Mueller’s indictment of Manafort was going after the Podestas, and not Trump.

There’s so much more to say about her corruption.  The Democratic Party’s willingness to spy on others began with her successfully pilfering (illegally) secret FBI files long ago (“a bureaucratic snafu”).  Paying for the Russian Dossier, her rigging the Democratic Party primaries, and so much more of despicable her.

Moving from her greed to her ineptness is easy, because she has never accomplished anything good.  An empty suit if there ever were one.  Once again, ineptness hidden because of her Democratic Privilege. 

Examples:  Her decision to help Bill beat the sexual predator rap with Monica.  It continued with her carpet bagging win of her Senate seat, in itself just a bit tainted.  But it was the fact that she did nothing of consequence with that seat, had no signature legislation, and simply used her seat as a celebrity stepping stone to the power she really wanted: the first woman President.  Unfortunately for her, in the first run for the prize, she lost to someone who out-demagogued her, and out-flanked her in leftist identity politics.  As Bill Clinton so inartfully put it, she lost to a guy who should have been fetching their coffee.

Her experience as Secretary of State, as Trump so deftly noted, was totally without success.  Carly Fiorina boiled it down as follows: “Like Hillary Clinton, I too have traveled hundreds of thousands of miles around the globe.  But unlike Hillary Clinton, I know that flying is an activity, not an accomplishment.” Hillary successfully helped destroy Iraq by watching as Obama pulled the troops early, and set the Arab world on fire with her horrific policies.  She almost destroyed Egypt by installing and giving billions to head that country with a Muslim Brotherhood leader.  They watched ISIS metastasize, sometimes helping.  Their failure at pulling out the Benghazi ambassador months earlier, as all other major countries did, was lethal.  Their non-response to Ambassador Stephens’s pleas for better security, was unprecedentedly stupid, despicable, and deadly.  Instead of owning up to it, she spread the lie that a video was at fault.  Lying to the nation and the victim families’ faces.

Her entire reign was a failure.  One after another.

Her campaign failure: Russia obviously suggesting she not campaign in the industrial Midwest.

“Now having said all this, why aren’t I up fifty points you might ask?” was her best imitation of the Wicked Witch of the West.   

Add that to her “deplorables” gaffe, and her disgusting inability to speak to her supporters the night of her election, and the mask should have come off for her true believer followers.

Her arrogance pushing the idea that everyone else was at fault for her loss is unprecedented in American politics.  Her egocentric fail at being unwilling to let it go was capped by Trump’s tweet this week.  He’s right, she’s good for the GOP.  Heck, she’s a huge problem for the Democratic Party.  A guest who stayed too long, drank too much, and wouldn’t leave.

A clueless guest.

As stated earlier, I think the Clintons are about to be thrown under the bus, and end up being the face of scandal for years to come.  The Democratic Party will feign ignorance.  The only thing in doubt is just how far the Clintons will fall, and how far the left will go to defend their scandals as they are all engulfed.

The final cluelessness of the obnoxious guest who wouldn’t leave:  Her Democratic privilege is ending, and she is still going around trying to blame everyone else for her shortcomings.  Along with their media enablers, the Clintons have no idea how bad they look.   When their privilege evaporates, and it will, they will be left without the drugs that have fueled them: power, money, and influence.

The first hint of their undoing:  The Podesta Group folding.  The second:  Donna Bazile.  The third:  The media is making up sob stories of how they shouldn’t have excused Bill’s sexual predations.

The next shoes are going to drop.  And drop and drop and drop.

They are toast.  The end is near.

I heard a caller to the Rush Limbaugh show recently upbraid him for saying the Clintons would skate once again.  The caller was right to upbraid him.

They are going down.  They are going to lose in every way.

Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely, that’s the saying.

That’s the story of Hillary.

Stripped of her privilege, she’s nothing but a corrupt, inept, and clueless felon.

This fall will be hard, long, and wide-ranging.

Watergate.  Meh.  Teapot Dome.  Meh.  This is a brave new world of fraudulent heroes tumbling over their clay feet, witnessed by a shocked world.

Hillary Clinton is not complex, not at all.  For her legion of personal problems — her tone-deaf woodenness, her arrogance, her greed, her worst problem has been her Democratic Party Privilege.

Yep, that’s the fatal flaw.

It’s really her biggest problem.  She’s been coddled because of her party affiliation.  She’s been coddled by a media that refused to report her ugly side.  She’s been coddled by a base that has been fooled repeatedly.  She’s convinced them she’s highly moral, highly intelligent, highly principled, and somehow represents all women, minorities, and the average American.  

Nothing could be further from the truth.  She’s nothing but a propped-up caricature, propped by that Democratic privilege.  Because of that privilege, the average left-leaning voter knows little or nothing about what a reprobate she is.

So far.

I do think she’s about to be taken down, and thrown under the bus.  The Democratic Party and the media will have no choice in the next year or so to come to that realization.  But I digress.

The specifics:

A big issue is her part in enabling Bill with his sexual predations.  She not only looked the other way as he hit on anything with a skirt, she led the charge against all the women whom he used and abused.  She led the bimbo eruptions effort, destroying the women as being sluts or nuts while her husband ran rampant.  She led the media to defend the indefensible.   And try as they might to defend the Clintons now, in the new race to virtue signal, the media is finally admitting their mistake.

Her ill temper and horrifying personality behind the mask of being nice has been chronicled by one of her major Secret Service defenders and others.  She was censured long ago for being dishonest and mean spirited by her own chairman during the Watergate hearings long ago.   Her money lust and greed were there to see in her cattle futures gains.  Whitewater was a manifestation of this character flaw, gaining personally because of political connections.  Fast forward and you have the attempted heist of White House belongings.  You have them dangling the bait of their political influence to gain money from the second they left the White House.   

With the silence of the media, the Clintons amassed a fortune through speeches, books, and donations.  The threat of their power and the cloak of their privilege kept them riding high.  The final coup de gras was their Clinton Foundation.  That they took donations for Haiti that never got to the recipients was criminal.  That they got cover from the Bush family and the media was atrocious.  I think this was the signal that corrupted the GOP so deeply.  They saw they could get a piece as well.

Clinton Democratic Privilege.  It led to more and more influence peddling.  The hundreds of millions of dollars donated to their foundation and campaigns from illicit people simply continued.  Everyone turned a blind eye to the obvious quid pro quos, corruption, and aggrandizement of power.

Uranium One, with the direct huge speaking fee to Bill, and the well over one hundred million dollars sent to the Foundation by those who benefited from this transaction was despicable.  The irony of all this money coming from rewarding the dratted Russians, hiding behind “the Russian reset,” can’t help but be one of the best cons ever.   All ignored by the media and the Democratic Party.  As Sean Hannity has poignantly asked, who anywhere would think it was a good idea to sell control of 20% of our Uranium to a foreign adversary?  And of all people, to the Russians.

Greed, corruption, and as said before, it’s the Mother of All Scandals.  I’m betting it takes them down.  The hint to follow is that Mueller’s indictment of Manafort was going after the Podestas, and not Trump.

There’s so much more to say about her corruption.  The Democratic Party’s willingness to spy on others began with her successfully pilfering (illegally) secret FBI files long ago (“a bureaucratic snafu”).  Paying for the Russian Dossier, her rigging the Democratic Party primaries, and so much more of despicable her.

Moving from her greed to her ineptness is easy, because she has never accomplished anything good.  An empty suit if there ever were one.  Once again, ineptness hidden because of her Democratic Privilege. 

Examples:  Her decision to help Bill beat the sexual predator rap with Monica.  It continued with her carpet bagging win of her Senate seat, in itself just a bit tainted.  But it was the fact that she did nothing of consequence with that seat, had no signature legislation, and simply used her seat as a celebrity stepping stone to the power she really wanted: the first woman President.  Unfortunately for her, in the first run for the prize, she lost to someone who out-demagogued her, and out-flanked her in leftist identity politics.  As Bill Clinton so inartfully put it, she lost to a guy who should have been fetching their coffee.

Her experience as Secretary of State, as Trump so deftly noted, was totally without success.  Carly Fiorina boiled it down as follows: “Like Hillary Clinton, I too have traveled hundreds of thousands of miles around the globe.  But unlike Hillary Clinton, I know that flying is an activity, not an accomplishment.” Hillary successfully helped destroy Iraq by watching as Obama pulled the troops early, and set the Arab world on fire with her horrific policies.  She almost destroyed Egypt by installing and giving billions to head that country with a Muslim Brotherhood leader.  They watched ISIS metastasize, sometimes helping.  Their failure at pulling out the Benghazi ambassador months earlier, as all other major countries did, was lethal.  Their non-response to Ambassador Stephens’s pleas for better security, was unprecedentedly stupid, despicable, and deadly.  Instead of owning up to it, she spread the lie that a video was at fault.  Lying to the nation and the victim families’ faces.

Her entire reign was a failure.  One after another.

Her campaign failure: Russia obviously suggesting she not campaign in the industrial Midwest.

“Now having said all this, why aren’t I up fifty points you might ask?” was her best imitation of the Wicked Witch of the West.   

Add that to her “deplorables” gaffe, and her disgusting inability to speak to her supporters the night of her election, and the mask should have come off for her true believer followers.

Her arrogance pushing the idea that everyone else was at fault for her loss is unprecedented in American politics.  Her egocentric fail at being unwilling to let it go was capped by Trump’s tweet this week.  He’s right, she’s good for the GOP.  Heck, she’s a huge problem for the Democratic Party.  A guest who stayed too long, drank too much, and wouldn’t leave.

A clueless guest.

As stated earlier, I think the Clintons are about to be thrown under the bus, and end up being the face of scandal for years to come.  The Democratic Party will feign ignorance.  The only thing in doubt is just how far the Clintons will fall, and how far the left will go to defend their scandals as they are all engulfed.

The final cluelessness of the obnoxious guest who wouldn’t leave:  Her Democratic privilege is ending, and she is still going around trying to blame everyone else for her shortcomings.  Along with their media enablers, the Clintons have no idea how bad they look.   When their privilege evaporates, and it will, they will be left without the drugs that have fueled them: power, money, and influence.

The first hint of their undoing:  The Podesta Group folding.  The second:  Donna Bazile.  The third:  The media is making up sob stories of how they shouldn’t have excused Bill’s sexual predations.

The next shoes are going to drop.  And drop and drop and drop.

They are toast.  The end is near.

I heard a caller to the Rush Limbaugh show recently upbraid him for saying the Clintons would skate once again.  The caller was right to upbraid him.

Stalling as Usual: Israel and the Palestinians


 …and, countering, from the Israeli Right…

The Sovereignty Movement founded by Women in Green is publishing a protest following the publication of the principles of the Trump outline for a political settlement between Israel and the PA. — Women in Green — as translated by Israpundit

Here is the problem in full force. A substantial part of the Israeli populace is right-wing (or, if you prefer the term: conservative), and will never agree to any Palestinian state. So whatever President Trump suggests will probably be ignored. I am sure the Israelis will be just as competent at ignoring President Trump’s ideas on a two-state solution as they were at ignoring Obama’s.

The Israelis are experts at stalling. When President Kennedy insisted that American inspectors be allowed to examine Dimona, Ben Gurion resigned rather than give in.

Finally, Kennedy had enough, and in a personal letter dated May 18, 1963, the president warned that unless American inspectors were allowed into Dimona (meaning the end of any military activities), Israel would find itself totally isolated. Rather than answering, Ben-Gurion abruptly resigned. — JPost

Kennedy was no Obama. He was not hostile to a Jewish state. He just wanted a Mideast free of nuclear weapons.

What should be clear, by now, is that Israel wants all the land west of the Jordan River. Maybe that is Israel’s right, Israel’s patrimony, Israel’s just claim; but even if so, Israel refuses to properly address what she wants to do with the Arabs in the land.

And that is the issue.

If one adds in the number of Arabs inside Gaza plus the number of Arabs inside Judea and Samaria (what the world calls the West Bank), then there are anywhere from 3.5 – 4.5 million Arabs. The conservative Yoram Ettinger would use the lower number, but other demographers claim to have good reason to use the higher number. The discrepancy comes from differences in the estimates of Arabs inside Judea and Samaria.

Add in the 1.8+ million Arabs who are Israeli citizens and you have roughly 5.3 – 6.3 million Arabs total in the Holy Land. Like it or not, that number starts to approximate the number of Jews [6.5 million] in the land.

To a large extent, these Arabs — even a lot of Israeli Arabs — identify as Palestinian. I know that term aggravates a lot of readers here at AT, but a Palestinian national identity started to form before 1900. An Arab newspaper Falastin (Palestine) was opened in 1911 in Jaffa. Palestinian identity was not invented in 1964, as so many claim.

So Israel stalls; and the world gets upset with Israel. Maybe the world shouldn’t get upset, but it does. However, Israel never tells us what she will do with the 3.5 – 4.5 million Arabs in Judea, Samaria, and Gaza. It seems Israel is content to limit them to Palestinian reservations; but the “restless natives” are not so agreeable.

Israel is running what is a functional empire. This is not obvious because Israel is so small; but if one defines an empire as a polity which rules over a disenfranchised, disparate people, then Israel would qualify.

By means of comparison: the U.S. is not such an empire. Guamians, Puerto Ricans, and the Saipanese are U.S. citizens who can move to the mainland and start voting as soon as they establish residence. Had the U.S. kept a disenfranchised Philippines, it would have been an empire.

The British ran an empire. The French did for a while, but slowly started to enfranchise the outer territories they kept. South America’s French Guiana sends representatives to the Assemblée nationale and to the French Senate. The Arabs in Nablus, Ramallah, and Gaza City have no representatives in the Knesset, which controls most of their borders, their airspace, their coastline, their imports and exports.

I understand why Israel does this. The Arabs are hostile to the idea of a Jewish state. The Israelis rightly fear that an Arab electorate, combined with a crazy Jewish left, could conceivably vote in an Islamic Republic were the Arabs given the franchise.

However, empires are inherently unstable. They are a never-ending source of violence and trouble. People do not like to be ruled over by another power, with no representation. Just ask S. Adams, T. Jefferson, and G. Washington.

As long as this situation persists, Israel will have nonstop violence. This is an historical inevitability. Britain did not see peace in Southern Ireland until Britain left, after 700+ years of strife. The Basque and Catalans are an ever-present problem to Madrid. The Basque may be quiet at this moment; but if they decide to close ranks with Catalan separatism, Spain would collapse. And this is even though the Basque and Catalans have representation in the central government, unlike the Palestinians.

As the Zionist founder, Ze’ev Jabotinsky noted:

The native populations, civilised or uncivilised, have always stubbornly resisted the colonists, irrespective of whether they were civilised or savage.


And it made no difference whatever whether the colonists behaved decently or not. — The Iron Wall, Jewish Virtual Library

I am not diminishing the horror of Islam, though there are a few nominally Christian Palestinians. And I do recognize that the Palestinians do not want a Jewish state at all. Their present mantra is that they want a secular state. Good luck with that! The only somewhat secular state in Araby was Syria; and we know how well that was run.

But Israel persists in saying it wants peace, when all it can safely offer the Arabs is very diminished status. No one would settle for that. The Jewish people did not settle for a minority status in a Palestinian state when offered such, even though enfranchised, under the 1939 MacDonald White Paper. Rather, some among the Yishuv (Jewish community) got violent: The Stern (Lehi) gang, the Irgun. If Jews would not accept such an enfranchised minority status, can we seriously expect the far more irascible Arabs would tolerate an even more diminished, disenfranchised status? Of course not! The Yishuv did not accept a less onerous offer in 1939. The Arabs will not accept a worse offer now.

Stop playing games! Israel should tell President Trump what it really wants, clearly, instead of vagaries about wanting peace. Change the paradigm, and make a real honest offer, not an offer no Palestinian would ever accept.

If Israel really wants a Jewish state from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean, then tell President Trump what Israel intends to do with the Arabs in Judea, Samaria, and Gaza.

Will Israel enfranchise these Arabs? Will Israel ethnically cleanse them at the first available opportunity? Will Israel make their lives a bureaucratic hell, until they leave out of frustration, as seems to be the case?

I have communicated with Israelis, and the usual answer I get is: It will take time.

Time?! It has been 50 years since 1967. Time is not your friend. When I hear, “This will take time,” I know that the speaker really means, “Hopefully, we can build a few more Jewish settlements, and the world may forget about it.” The speaker is stalling, and does not want to admit it. I have nothing against new Jewish communities. Go ahead. Build them. But I have something against the stalling.

Will Israel pay the Palestinians to leave, as I have suggested, or as Dr. Martin Sherman has suggested? When I first posited the idea on American Thinker, I was called a loon. Over the intervening few years, others seem to have picked up the idea. There really is no other option, apart from ethnic cleansing.

And please do not say the Arabs should all go back to Jordan, when Jordan will no longer take them, and many of them were not from Jordan in the first place. A lot of them — more than Israel cares to admit — came from the coastal areas of what is now Israel.

I am not against Israel. I am against this duplicitous stalling which solves nothing; and which makes the rather insane Muslim side look good. Tell us what Israel really wants, and how Israel intends to go about it. Stop the stalling.

And if Israel will not oblige us with an honest proposal, then unlike Obama, we should do nothing to hurt Israel; but we should withdraw from the Mideast altogether. Let Israel do whatever Israel wants, but wash our hand of whatever happens as a result.

Now that the USA is getting free of Arab oil, it would be good to let the Muslim world know that they have no sympathy from us.

As usual for American presidents, Trump seems to be on the verge of recognizing a Palestinian state. As is also usual, the Israeli Right is up in arms against it.

US President Donald Trump, who until now has not spoken of the two-state solution, intends to recognize a Palestinian state, according to the report. — JPost
