Many Americans who have never heard Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu before, were left in awe of his command presence when taking the stage, and also his ability to rhetorically demolish 0bama’s absurd rhetoric about a nuclear Iran to bits.
On the outside, we can all see the visible attributes that makes Bibi such an incredible leader, and wish we had a leader who stood up to terrorists and Islamofascists, instead of appeasing them.
But what you probably didn’t know is that Bibi was quite the badass in his youth, and before taking over as Israel’s leader, he racked up quite the impressive list of accomplishments, as well as made incredible sacrifices for his country.
As compiled by IJReview, here are 5 badass things you probably didn’t know about Bibi:

1. War hero

The Israeli leader enlisted in the IDF at the young ate of 18, serving in an elite commando unit. He went on to fight in three different wars for his country.

2. Has taken bullets for his country

Ceremony
Deployed on many dangerous special forces missions throughout his military career, Bibi took a bullet in the shoulder while attempting to rescue the passengers of a plane hijacked by terrorists in 1972. He served on the front lines in the Yom Kippur War, where he was almost killed in the Suez Canal .

3. His family paid the ultimate sacrifice for  Israel

book
During the famous “Raid on Entebbe” in Uganda, Lt. Colonel Jonathan Netanyahu, Bibi’s brother, paid the ultimate sacrifice for his country, as he was killed in action while leading his special forces troops attempting to rescue 100 of his countrymen who had been held hostage on a hijacked flight by Palestinian and East German terrorists.
Not a single hostage was killed, and Netanyahu — the siege’s commander — was the sole Israeli casualty in an operation that is still taught in military schools to this day. ( Hollywood even made a film of it starring Charles Bronson.)

4. Super Smart

college grad
Not only a tough as nails soldier, Bibi is also as smart as a whip.
He earned degrees in Management and Architecture, from two of the most prestigious schools in America — Harvard and MIT. He would go on to be recruited to work for Boston Consulting in 1976, as a coworker of Mitt Romney and eventually becoming a personal friend.

5. One of the most successful politicians in history

He has held these positions since entering Israeli politics:
·         Deputy Chief of Mission , Israeli Embassy in Washington , DC (’82-’84)
·         Ambassador of Israel to the United Nations (’84-’88)
·         Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs (’88-’91)
·         Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office (’91-’92)
·         Chairman of Likud, Leader of the Opposition (’93-’96)
·         Prime Minister (’96-’99 & ’09-present)
·         Israeli Foreign Affairs Minister (’02-’03)
·         Israeli Finance Minister (’03-’05)
·         All around badass (1949-present)

And Netanyahu has now addressed Congress as many times as Winston Churchill.

Churchill
So before Barack Obama (who can be seen below during his drug-addled “Choom Gang” phase, at the same exact age as the Bibi that accompanies him) tries to further mess with Netanyahu, he might wish to review the list above.
Bibi is a true bad-ass.

Isn’t That Cheating?

It is no  longer a critical point that can be used to help make up minds about voting, but some interesting new information has just been revealed. I always wondered how Obama coped without his teleprompter in front of him. I’ve heard him speak extemporaneously during interviews and he tends to ramble on endlessly about a lot of stuff that sounds important without answering the question. At other times I’ve heard him stumble and stammer with too many uhs and duh’s. This new source has shown evidence that Obama used a special ear-phone during the second and third debates. Isn’t that cheating? I wonder who was feeding him the answers. Maybe he wore it to get critical feeds from his security team on terrorist actions on US Embassies.

I lifted the following photos from “itmakessenseblog.com”  today after receiving them in an e-mail. They are very interesting for  sure. Kind of makes one wonder how many other weird tricks the President uses to lull the Libs into their trance.

The Action of Inflicting Hurt

Where in the world did Obama get the idea that he needs us to vote for revenge? He is obviously upset that we the people have wronged him in some way. Perhaps he is upset because we have tried to vet him in spite of his efforts to hide his true identity. Perhaps it is  because the 2010 election removed his total advantage to turn the country upside down. Elections have consequences is what he told us of shortly after taking office. I’m sure he will remind us again if he is so lucky as to be elected again. I shudder at the thought.

After reviewing the dictionary definition of “revenge”  The idea that he would want to hurt the country is appalling. There are those of us who do not believe his direction is in our  best interest. After all, not everyone believes in a socialist society of huge government controlling every aspect of our lives. Not everyone believes in protecting the environment to the point of returning the planet to a Neanderthal state. After viewing the news photos of the chaos created by hurricane Sandy on New York and in particular the chaos created by a minor gasoline shortage I’m sure we are glad that it isn’t happening to us. Yet, our energy policy will make those gas lines seen in New York a universal scene. Think about what would happen in your life if there is no gas. How long would it be before you become desperate? Is that why Obama wants revenge, because we don’t want his energy policy?

Here is one more analogy from New York. People are scrambling for food, clothing, and shelter. The hardship these folks see is obvious because we see them on TV. Again we are glad it is not us. What we don’t see is the hardship experienced by the twenty-three million people who are out of work. Oh, but they are on unemployment and food stamps we argue. Imagine yourself  in that situation before you rationalize how benevolent the government is. Perhaps Obama wants to revenge those of us who still have work and don’t need his huge government help.

What ever the reason he wants revenge it will not matter provided we do the right thing tomorrow. We need to make this election have some serious consequences for him.

Romney’s Quiet Moment of Prayer

How can I go wrong? I’m getting so much help it is impossible to fail. Here is another great message from an acquaintance.

Dear Grumpa Joe,

Almost ALL of the Lincolnway Tea Party members objected that Mitt Romney was going to be the 2012 Republican Presidential nominee. I was probably the ONLY member that knew conclusively that Willard Romney would be the final pick. I was called a “gloater” by several of the members when he finally was chosen and then I did “gloat” to get my personal satisfaction. I enjoy being “right”… especially when I “do the homework.”

Also, I predicted that he would be the next President. Frank Jr. is as “Clint Eastwood” said: ” ‘ is the greatest Presidential hoax perpetrated on the American people.’ ” I said that for at least the last year… after I concluded that the “fairy tales” that Frank Jr. and his coterie were espousing are a series of lies. (My friend believes that Obama’s real father is Frank Marshall Davis a character mentioned in Obama’s book Dream From My Father. Therefore he refers to Obama as Frank Jr.)

Several years ago I told people that there would be more articles and books written about Frank Jr. than have ever been written about Abraham Lincoln.

The so-called  “main street media” are a national disgrace, committing verbal malpractice and are a sorry group. At the National Press Club in DC there is the 1911 Journalist’s Creed sandwiched on a wall between two elevator doors; doing their homework and searching for the truth MUST be their ultimate goal. Unfortunately, they took the side of a power thirsty mulatto who could not run a lemonade stand or keep his hands off of other males.

The end is near for Frank Jr. and the resurrected story of Frank Sr. (also know as Communist Party Member # 47544 of the United States) is just beginning.

Good health & keep doing your research,

Michael

WHITE HOUSE INSIDER: Mitt Romney’s Quiet Prayer Amidst The Sound Of Thunder

October 25, 2012 | Ulsterman

A remarkable  story from a longtime D.C. political operative of just how personally moved Mitt Romney was following a campaign stop in Red Rocks Colorado

where over 10,000 enthusiastic supporters greeted the man they hope will be the next President of the United States.

Got this feedback earlier today and thought you’d like to hear it.  You know, I’ve gone from just trying to defeat Obama to really trying to help Governor Romney be this country’s next president.  I’m really starting to believe there might be something very special about this man.  This took place out in Colorado.  Just a couple days ago.  Probably my favorite campaign trail story that’s come back my way so far this election.  Wish I had been there.  I’m going to try and get a little poetic on you here.  Hope I pull it off OK and do this story justice.  Feel free to help me out a bit in the telling.  I would be embarrassed for people to know just how bad my spelling really is.  And sadly, that’s not a joke.  -INSIDER

As the governor was en route to the amphitheatre they were told the crowd was showing “strong numbers”.  What greeted him was a lot more than just “strong numbers” though.  It was a massive wave of thousands and thousands of supporters.  Before going on the governor apparently peeked out a few times and was shaking his head in disbelief at just how many people were there to see him.  He was told by organizers up to a thousand more were turned away because there simply wasn’t any room left.  People said you could feel the size of the crowd under your feet backstage.  Somebody had passed out a ton of “thundersticks” and the people were banging them together and making this amazing rumbling noise.  There were some real veteran campaigners backstage and I’m told they were all blown away by this crowd in Colorado.  It really was like some big time rock show.  Just a huge response for the governor.

So Governor Romney goes onstage and gives his speech.  The crowd just totally embraces him.  From beginning to end.  Every word.  They are fired up. Loud.  Positive.  Cheering.  Just an amazing moment for the campaign.  Everybody backstage were all smiles and peeking out at all those people and shaking their heads.  This is the kind of moment in a campaign you never forget.  Ever.   Nobody who hasn’t experienced it can really understand this feeling.  You’re looking at a candidate being transformed right in front of your eyes into the next Leader of the Free World.  They go from being human into something just a bit more. It’s all those people.  That energy.  It kind of fills the candidate up and makes them bigger than life.  And you are watching it happen in real time.  Right then. 

The governor returns backstage and he is smiling and shaking hands, taking congratulations from everybody around him.  He’s saying how great it was.  Somebody yells out he’s going to win Colorado and the governor laughs and says he thinks so too.  And then something very interesting happens.  He moves away from the group of people just a bit.  Maybe ten or fifteen feet or so.  Just enough to have a little space to himself.  And enough people notice that the area gets a lot more quiet, and they are trying to watch the governor without looking like they are watching the governor.  They can all kind of tell something is happening right then.  It was described as something very peaceful and powerful that came over that backstage area for a moment.  And the governor, he lowers his head and his eyes shut tight and you could see him take a slow deep breath and then he lets it out and says quietly, but just loud enough for some to hear, “Lord, if this is your will, please help to make me worthy.  Please give me the strength Lord.”  And then his eyes open up, and he’s back to smiling and laughing and shaking hands and being the candidate once again.

I’m 100% convinced Mitt Romney was shaken to his soul right then and there.  I think at that moment it was sinking in he might really be the next American president, and it humbled him right to his core, in every nerve of his body.  And as he was saying that little prayer, you could hear the sound of thunder from all those thundersticks outside. Like this huge low rumble that just surrounded all of them at once.  A quiet little prayer, and the sound of thunder.

The sound of God.

Me the People

One word jumped out and slapped me in the face during the debate on foreign policy last Monday, “me.”

President Obama was making a point about his position on a nuclear Iran when he said this:

“They can take the diplomatic route and end their nuclear program or they will have to face a united world and a United States president, me, who said we’re not going to take any options off the table.”

Did he really need remind us that he is the president?  Doesn’t the office speak for itself? That one word slipped into the sentence, a word not needed exposed the true character of this man. His ego is as large as China. It is baffling why the addition of the word “me” into his argument made it any stronger. Except, that he was trying to demean us with his power as president. Maybe he was trying to insinuate to the Iranians that he got Bin Laden and he will get them too. It is a mystery.  Perhaps someone will be nice enough to help me figure it out.

From a highway somewhere in America

“. . .  and certainly not Me the People.”

This evening I took a few minutes to watch the tapes of Mitt Romney and Barack Obama roast each other at the annual Al Smith Memorial Benefit Dinner. If you have the time watch these two monologues. After watching them debate each other this performance is a joy. I give Mitt Romney an edge over Obama. Mitt had the best jokes and delivered them well. Each man showed respect for the other, and acknowledged their family status.

If campaigns were as cordial as this roast, the world would be a much better place.

The Underdog Syndrome

Barack Obama and Michelle Obama

The pundits relish and bask in the sun of Governor Romney’s debate performance. Oh how he destroyed  Obama. Those who know Obama know they must listen to what he says and then watch what he does.

Obama skillfully lost this debate on purpose. I knew it when I watched his demeanor during the debate. He looked like Mikey who just got caught with his hands in the cookie jar. At first I too relished in a victory.  Victories don’t come often, and when they do I celebrate them. The problem with this victory is that it was premeditated by Obama. The Mikey look was a part of the act to make it seem like he was getting shellacked. Why would he throw the debate? He is a student of Rules for Radicals. The rules led him to throw the opposition off with a simple unexpected ploy. The Mikey look was one caused by wanting to come back to argue eloquently as he usually does, but he had to bite his tongue instead.

What advantage does this give Obama? He knew his base was beginning to abandon him, and he had to become the underdog. People love underdogs. His base will love him as an underdog. Obama will recover quickly because of the underdog principle.

Am I wrong?
