Israel has become one symptomatic example in domestic and global crises related to American decisions. So who is the screw-up in charge of the U.S. government replacing the American house from a firm foundation to a foundation of ephemeral sand? How many dare to answer the question correctly to hear the ‘ding-ding-ding’ and become an enlightened winner? Read Norma Zager to refine your ability to get the right answer as to who in the U.S. government is this screw-up.
Mad Hatter President?
I Want My White Hat Back

Americans have always grown up believing we are the good guys. We fight the wars of the righteous, help the oppressed and free the world from despots and evil dictators.
I am seriously wondering when all that had changed.
Do I have to dig up John Wayne to do battle with evil?
Isn’t anyone up to the challenge anymore?
It is no longer an assumption that America is on the right side of history, because now it seems we are on the wrong one or can’t even find the sides at all.
When good men ignore evil and allow it to run free, well you know the rest.
Recent ceasefire talks between Israel and Hamas were held and brokered in Egypt after John Kerry botched the previous ones.
He wasn’t even invited to participate.
Wow, America not part of the solution?
Obviously we have now become part of the problem.
When America does wrong, its size and power exacerbate its foibles.
In the last six years, the U.S. has turned its back on allies, ignored murder and genocide in numerous countries and enabled the most evil Empire on earth to soon obtain nuclear capability.
Am I living in a parallel universe?
Can this actually be happening?
Sadly, it is.
The U.S. left Iraq to the devices of terrorists and Islamic extremists with no plan in place to protect what American men and women fought and died to protect. And we thought Sadam Hussein was a jerk?
Syria has murdered close to 200,000 of its people, Pakistan has taken billions in payoff money and thrown the US under the bus and Africa, well, is even more problematic than it has ever been.
The United Nations is a total failure and joke in the world, but we continue to support this pathetic sideshow to the tune of two billion plus a year.
Americans are murdered, kidnapped, falsely imprisoned and no one says a peep.
Our borders are open to anyone who feels like strolling over, at a time when America has more enemies who seek its destruction than Colorado has pot plants. Am I dreaming here?
The happiest man on planet earth right now is Vladimir Putin because it is free day for him. And America thinks it is going to stop Mother Russia with a few missing chickens?
Jews and Christians are being murdered all over the world, and the President hops on a plane to inhale clam chowder on Martha’s Vineyard and schmooze with celebrities.
I don’t have enough room on my computer anymore to list all the horrors going on in this world. What the hell happened to our white hat? Did we give it away to all the evil dictators of the world?
Sure, all of us in the civilized world would like to return to the past when our biggest problem was Cuba harboring nukes. When a US president could back Russia down with a phone call.
Ignoring the craziness only intensifies its growth.
Hitler didn’t burst on the scene like a 15-minute rock star but was duly elected by the German people.
That’s the scariest part of all. When people elect their own destroyer. Sort of like a worldwide StayPuff Marshmallow man marching through the planet, and now sadly squashing churches and synagogues in his wake.
The Palestinian people chose Hamas, a terrorist organization, through an election, in lieu of a more moderate government, and now when it has come back to bite them, they blame everyone else for their foolish choices.
Do most Jewish people probably wish Israel was located somewhere less dangerous, like Miami Beach? Maybe, but they didn’t choose where their history would lead them.
I am quite amused by those who wish to condemn and ostracize Israel, and yet I would bet anything that when these same anti-Semites need medicines or technology to save their lives, they are the first to demand the latest Israel advances.
If it all weren’t so tragic, it would be comical.
Over 1,000 French Jews fled that country last year to save their lives, and more leave daily. All the countries in Europe are more anti-Semitic now than Deutschland before WWII. In Germany they are now marching holding signs reading “Gas the Jews.” Seems like old times.
However, this time it’s different, despite the fact the Pope sits in his ivory tower and ignores the plight of Christians throughout the world. He’s not only King of the Church, he’s the Cleopatra of Popes, king of denial. He finally noticed there is a problem, gee maybe he needs to listen to the news.
This time it’s not just Jews that are being threatened and murdered, but also Christians.
The Holy War has begun and is in full swing. Mankind is marching backward at warp speed. Isn’t there some sort of oxymoron to that statement? How can the Hadron Collider, working on manufacturing time travel and the primitive savage beasts trying to take over the world actually exist within the same era?
Where is the United States of America? Why aren’t there marches on Washington now? Why isn’t there an outcry in our Senate against the war targeting the Judeo-Christian world?
It is shocking to me that it is business as usual as sympathizers of evil speak out in favor of terrorism.
Elites in Hollywood, who have no concept of the fact they are next on the hit list after Israel, speak out as though they are some righteous bunch saving humanity.
What a joke.
Years ago Mel Gibson made racist and anti-Semitic remarks and was ostracized and condemned. Today anti-Semitism is very chic and acceptable in Hollywood, especially by self-hating Jews.
I rarely consider myself normal, whatever that may be, but I am beginning to wonder if normal exists any longer.
Unfortunately, the world is now in a position where it must choose sides.
When decent people watch as Christians are forced to escape to a mountaintop in Iraq like a replay of Masada and little innocent children stand with guns keeping watch, there is a serious problem here.
Where once the US was a problem solver, now it is a Band-Aid fix.
Admitting we were caught off guard by a bunch of savages, if that’s even true, makes our CIA look like kiddy day at the gym. Dropping in food and sending a few jets in after the enemy has taken a stronghold is laughable.
I only hope that the American Eagle, who I understand is old and pretty worn out by now, can fly again.
Without him soaring over the world and fighting evil, good people will have nowhere left to run.
