Six Senators Smear Rand Paul

April 1, 2011 by  

Six Senators Smear Rand Paul

If you live in Florida, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania or Rhode Island there is something I hope you will do. Call or write your Senator and ask him or her why he/she helped launch a vicious anti-Semitic smear of the new junior Senator from Kentucky, Rand Paul.

This is not an April fool’s joke. I wish it were. Here is what happened:

In February, the six Senators I’m talking about—Bill Nelson (D-Fla.), Ben Cardin (D-Md.), Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.), Bob Menendez (D-N.J.), Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), Robert Casey (D-Penn.) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.)—sent an open letter to House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers lambasting Paul for daring to suggest that the United States “halt all foreign aid, including its financial aid, to Israel.” The Senators were shocked, shocked I tell you, that the freshman Senator would have the unmitigated gall to suggest such a thing.

You will probably not be surprised to learn that the Senators’ letter was a massive distortion of what Paul actually said. Nor should you be surprised to learn that the mainstream media quoted their scolding with undisguised glee. And of course, totally ignored the truth of what the libertarian Senator actually said. So let me give it to you straight.

First, did Paul advocate cutting off foreign aid to Israel? Absolutely! From the very first moment he began campaigning for a seat in the U.S. Senate, he said that he would work to halt all foreign aid to everyone. Paul never singled out Israel, as the anti-anti-Semites in the Senate pretend. He believes that it is almost insane for this country to borrow money from China so we can give it away to half of the world—and in many cases to countries that use our aid to suppress their own population and/or kill their neighbors.

In his actual statement, which the mainstream media pretend does not exist, Paul pointed out that the U.S. sends four times more aid to Israel’s enemies than we do to that poor beleaguered country.

Well, strike “poor” from the above sentence. Israel has become such a technological and agricultural phenomenon that its citizens enjoy one of the highest per capita incomes in the world. Sure, some of the oil-rich countries have more wealth. But almost all of their money is concentrated in the hands of a few ruling sheiks and their families. The average male in most Muslim countries lives in abject poverty, no matter how many billions his rulers have. And the average female is even worse off.

Israel, on the other hand, is one of the most egalitarian countries in the world. Even the Muslims who live there enjoy more rights than in any of the Arab states that surround Israel.

This whole brouhaha began on Jan. 26, when CNN’s Wolf Blitzer asked Paul whether he believed the United States should “end all foreign aid, including foreign aid to Israel.” You will not be surprised to learn that Paul gave an immediate and emphatic yes.

He then continued, “When you send foreign aid, you actually send quite a bit to Israel’s enemies. Islamic nations around Israel get quite a bit of foreign aid, too. So really, you have to ask yourself, are we funding an arms race on both sides?”

Paul went on to declare that he has “a lot of sympathy and respect for Israel, as a democratic nation, as a fountain of peace and a fountain of democracy within the Middle East. But at the same time, I don’t [believe in] funding both sides of the arms race, particularly when we have to borrow money from China to send it to someone else. We just can’t do it anymore.”

Can anyone with enough sense to come in out of the rain disagree with anything in that statement?

As it turns out, many Israelis are on Paul’s side in this debate. Yuval Levin of the Jerusalem-based Institute for Advanced Strategic and Political Studies is the author of a study called American Aid to the Middle East. In it he says that American aid to Israel is “a tragedy of good intentions.”

He goes on to explain, “Analysis of the economic consequences of aid must conclude that aid slows growth, stifles economic activity, encourages inefficiency and keeps alive Israel’s socialist system. It is profoundly counterproductive for the Jewish state.”

I suspect a lot of Israelis agree with Levin. And let me mention another issue that is almost never addressed in the U.S. media but is of deep and abiding concern to many citizens in Israel. That is the economic and political blackmail their leaders must pay whenever U.S. leaders decide to throw their weight around.

There is a “mentality of dependence” in Israel many Jews detest. Their leaders are too subservient to the United States, even when U.S. policy is harmful to their country.

Need proof? Our government forced Israel to accept the creation of the Palestinian Authority, which immediately became the captive of terrorists from Hamas and Fatah. But not only did we force them to accept it, we also demanded they stand meekly by while we used foreign aid to arm its members.

Abu Yousef, a senior official of the Palestine Authority and an admitted terrorist, once boasted, “I do not think the operations of the Palestine resistance would have been so successful and would have killed more than 1,000 Israelis since 2000 and defeated Israel in Gaza” without such assistance from America.

That’s sure something to be proud of, isn’t it? Our aid helped terrorists kill 1,000 Israelis. And yet six U.S. Senators try to smear Paul for trying to call a halt to such madness.

I know many of my conservative colleagues disagree with me on this. Gary Bauer, a Washington analyst and activist I’ve admired for a long time, has staunchly defended American aid to Israel. In his daily blog, he argued, “The U.S. gives billions of dollars a year to foreign countries that hate us and regularly vote against us at the United Nations. But Israel votes with the U.S. 97% of the time. They are a loyal ally that shares our values. The aid they receive is used to buy military equipment from U.S. companies, so the money comes back to us.”

That may all be true. But so what? If all foreign aid to the Middle East were stopped, wouldn’t Israel be a lot better off? And besides, knowing how fanatical many Jews in the U.S. are about supporting Israel, don’t you think that their private contributions would more than make up for any loss of official government aid?

As my friend Doug Casey puts it, most of the time foreign aid means taking money from poor people in this country who really need it and giving it to rich people in other countries, who merely steal it.

I say, stop it all. If you agree, tell your Senators and Representative. Let’s end the madness this year.

Until next time, keep some powder dry.

    I won’t try to go into a defense of Rand Paul. My main beef with what has happened is in the idea that ANY senator(s) can be “shocked.”
    It seems to me that if six so-called senators can be “shocked” on ANY topic, then it makes perfect sense why and how they can’t find a way to balance the budget, stop their wasteful spending or keep a short leash on the America-hating pretender in the White House. Most elected Washington ‘senators’ should have been outsourced years ago.

    • nickwolf

      “American hating pretender”? What does it take to end this
      hate spew coming from supposed Christians? They are going down everyday, in “We the Peoples Opinions” !! Because acting like a juvinal delinquent with hate dripping from non-contributing adults. No new idea’s, no job creation projects, just social Christian hate agenda’s that are as old as the hills and will
      not change the Country no matter how many laws are passed. You had your chance, you proved to be worse than the last eight yrs of Republican failed policies! Now that the recovery is happening and unemployment is going down….you want to go back to Herbert Hoover philosophy? Thats what caused the Great Depression!!! Your losing more jobs by design??? Your cutting spending and slowing the Economy down when were at recovery?? If cutting taxes made jobs, why does it always lose jobs?? Thats it …. I won’t talk to anybody with a Tea Bag over their brain….they have nothing to contribute except bad, UnAmerican, childish mud slinging! They are over!
      John Birchers are going to be judged someday and it won’t be pretty! Fire burns!

        Don’t know if it would end all “hate-spewing”, but it would reduce it greatly if the kenyan would step down.

        We’d all be happier with an American as president.

        Spew THIS.

        • Kenna

          The Hawaiian is NOT stepping down so deal with it. And deal with another 4 years! ahahahah

          Go Senator Nelson!!

          • Richard Pawley

            Wonder what the odds are that Lloyds of London are giving on this bet? It is really curious why Obama has spent so much money to not show his birth certificate but that is trivial to the shape this country is going to be in by the 2016 election no matter who gets elected in 19 months. WWIII might be in full swing by then, the destruction of Los Angeles will be two years old by then (as I said in my recently updated autobiography, LEAVING SOUTH CAROLINA, and the reconstruction not even begun (because of the tremendous inflation caused by all the squandering of money by the 110th (and Democratic Congress) or maybe the “big one” will create real jobs and for the next 20 years we will be building a new Los Angeles that will rival the cities we built in China. The Democrats still control congress and it will be interesting if they force a shutdown of the government like the Republicans did in the previous decade. It is so sad that RINO Republicans and Socialist Democrats can’t see that they are destroying the dollar and the economy by all the squandering of dollars we don’t have. I know that most liberals, progressives and Marxists are atheists but they are, as Jesus said, “the blind leading the blind”. The result of spending what we don’t have is going to cause us to have more than 250% inflation. EVERYTHING YOU USE IN DAILY LIFE IS GOING TO COST AT LEAST THREE TIMES MORE THAN IT DOES TODAY (and that is no April Fools joke), by that most hidden of taxes – inflation. Even our money is phony debt coupons that only have value because the Democratic Congress of 1913 turned over the money of the county to a private bank that has never been audited by anyone in government since 1913. There is some doubt that we own the gold in Fort Knox, which hasn’t be publically audited since before John F. Kennedy was president. Even the bankers are going to be hurting when this whole system comes down, but hey, spend till you drop. It’s the new American way! We are rebuilding China with all our trillions and becoming slaves to the banks, the government and the Chinese as we do it. Most Americans would be shocked to see the new cities of China, like something out of science fiction, and like the cities of the Middle East Oil countries, all built with our money, because unions drove busines out of the country and congress passed the highest coroporate taxes on earth with loopsholes that some favored big business can slip through. “Freedoms just another word for nothing left to lose,” went the song and I say that all are going to be affected by what is being created. No one on earth is going to be unaffected. I also say Donald Trump for President! He couldn’t do worse than a politician. May God bless America because no one else is going to do so.

          • Carlucci

            The “Hawaiian”? Who is that?

          • Karolyn

            Richard – Do you have any statistics to back up your allegation that “most liberals and progressives are atheist?”

          • http://windstream Jo Anne

            Don’t bet too much on that theory . Obama still has his followers like you but thank all mighty God, most Americans have begun to wake up and to see that his best thing is his imitation of Frank Sanatra. I wonder how many times he practiced that in front of the mirror before the debates. Oh, but I do remember how so many of his fans were praising how intellectual and how great a speaker is was. Some still believe that. God help them! (He does good tela-prompter.)

          • Barbara

            Kenna, you’d have to be pretty stupid to think that Popolo is a Hawaiian. He has no Hawaiian birth certificate. But in all this time he’s paying attorneys to cover up for him he should be able to have a fake one made up by now. How can you Hawaiians be so dumb as to think that he is an American. He hates America and is doing a hell of a job in destroying us. One of these days when you wake up and realize all that is going on it will be too late and you’ll be just another number in his catagory. Just say your prayers every night that the Good Lord will protect all of us from his communist ways.

            Karolyn:

            All you need do is look at what liberals / progressives. Marxists / facists (sorry for repeating myself so much) believe and you will see that they can be nothing bu atheists.

          • Jay

            Twenty years ago communism in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe collapsed because its atheism did not comport with truth or reality. Man is not an animal or a machine.

            Today, atheism is hastening the death of the West. An atheistic foundation will not sustain life or freedom.
            Many in the West live on borrowed capital from the Biblical worldview. Atheist and secularist academics—the intellectual elites—want to enjoy the blessings from Judeo-Christian roots.

            Yet they despise the tree and hack at its roots, seeking to overthrow the Biblical moral and metaphysical order.

          • Tom

            Bozo the clown could beat the Kenyan, so deal with that. He has spent more than any President since the Great Depression and his most ideal goal was to ruin the American economy.

          • patty

            Karolyn – You write: “Liberalism is a comprehensive belief system denying the Christian belief in man’s immortal soul.” Yet our Beliefnet polls show that 58.7% of Democrats believe in life after death. Doesn’t that disprove your statement?
            No, I think it proves it–58.7% of all Democrats? That’s pathetic. Also, you forgot to ask them the follow-up question: Is that because you hope to come back as a snail darter? Ann Coulteir interview.
            http://sweetness-light.com/archive/ann-coulter-on-god-faith-and-liberals
            That was the only site I could find with a %. I guess it comes from your own political leaders that insist republicans cling to their religion, bible and gun. That would infer that if you classify yourself as a liberal, you don’t do those things.

        • Founding Mother

          All six of the senators who wrote the shameful letter are Jews. They are Israelis first and Americans second. They follow the Talmud. We shouldn’t be giving foreign aid to any country. Also, we should not be fighting the foreign wars for Israel. They are leaching America dry. These are the people Jesus said that call themselves Jews, but are not Jews. They don’t have a drop of Abraham’s blood. Our founding fathers said to stay out of foreign entanglements! Charity towards all, malice towards none!

          • http://marcum1@wildblue.net coal miner

            Right on!

          • WARLORDX

            You are exactly right Founding Mother. It is my prayer that all ‘hyphenated-Americans’ will decide they are Americans, or go wherever their hyphen takes them. And, never again, should we allow a presidential candidate to enter an election without being totally vetted in all Constitutional requirements. Especially if there is even a HINT of doubt. The mere fact BO has spent millions to obfuscate the issue tells me all I need to know. His actions have proved out my doubts.

        From whence did this uneducated dolt appear from? Do you really feel that you can change historic events,by making big fat false claims that it is so? Your perspective of history and Christianity is so distorted that you are not debatable. Arguing with an emotionally charged misinformed fool is an act of futility. Get the truth from infowars.com then come back with a sense of clarity and fight for this country and stop defending neo-libs!

        Maybe studying your history about the Rothchild family and how they used their money to not only get their way but buy into everything in America to control things and crash the economy. Herbert Hoover did not cause the depression…the Rothchild family did.

        As far as hate…stating your opinion does not constitute hate. Hate has to come from the heart and only the Lord can judge the heart…not man. Obama stinks, is no good, is a failure and DOES hate America as he sides with the Muslims on every chance he gets and he admitted that he would. I want him out of the WH but that does not mean I hate him and you have no right to judge otherwise about any Christian. You don’t know what is in our hearts.

          Hear Hear!

        • VinnyPace

          This is not about Obama, Muslims, nor is it about the tea price in China. Randy Paul made a valid point about the necessity to cut foreign aid to Israel and other countries and provided a compelling argument in its defense. Israel has received over 114 billion $ since its inception in disclosed aid + all the undisclosed military and in kind donations from the USA. Why we are not investing our tax $$$ in our poor and our decaying infrastructure is beyond my understanding. Israel needs to learn to depend on itself and start building good relations with its neighbors that are built on justice and equity not land grabbing and political pandering. Israel is a parasite. Its citizens enjoy one of the highest per capita incomes at the expense of hard working unassuming Americans who are struggling to make ends meet.

          • Bud Tugly

            I disagree with Rand Paul more often than not, but on this issue I am in total agreement. We dump much of our national treasure on countries that will never like us and whose fortunes matter little to our people here at home. Much of the “aid” is siphoned off by criminals in their governments We need to focus on our decaying infrastructure which would employ thousands, getting our schools back to a level of excellence, and dealing with the immigration mess that is draining us both culturally and economically.

          • Firefly

            It is the Arab countries that are constantly trying to take land from tiny Israel. Your prejudice is coming through. If there were not so many ex-liberal Democrats over there perhaps they could defend themselves properly, the Chicago way!

          • Marti

            Rand Paul is exactly right. These ’6 senators’ are globalist Israeli whores. Sherrod Brown wants aid to continue to Israel who doesn`t need it, which puts the interest of Americans behind a foreign country. He also is an advocate for an open border with Mexico. Can you say NAU?

        • David Roberts

          I agree with your intellegent reply..Guarantee it went over his head.

        • http://yahoo Lacey

          Thats right Angel I agree. Obslama said in his book Dreams from my Father : If the political winds shift I will stand with the muslims. Why, because he is one.

      • Carol

        Doesn’t this trashing of Rand Paul prove that they are not Christian in the True sense of the word?

        • Lewis Munn

          G00D thoughts..

          One problem is so many people in America do not know what a “Christian” is, and throw the name around promiscuously. Schools do not teach the difference, either, and they should, in Social Studies.

          A Christian is a follower of Jesus Christ, not someone who goes to a protestant or catholic church. So many go to church on Sunday, and live for the Devil the other 6-3/4 days of the week.

          It is important to know what a “Christian’ really is. Most called “Christians” are agnostics or unbelievers who go to a club named “church” once a week.

          But those who are against Christian ethics point fingers at the non-believers in the churches as “Christians” and so make it hard for the real converted Christians.

          If their own politics were similarly smeared improperly, they would scream and holler to high heaven. or wherever their god resides! And they do have a god, even if only a set of rules they follow religiously, distorted as they may be.

          I just wish that the enemies of Christianity would be honest in whom they call Christian and whom they tar with their wide brush. The Bible says Christians were known by their love, and see if most that are smeared by their fake Christans, or liberals, fit that description!

          If they do not, stop lying about them, call them hypocrites, perhaps.
          The Bible does. And if you read, there are Muslim hypocrites, but they get killed off rapidly. Muslims do not pussyfoot around on beliefs! No freedom of religion with them.

            “So many go to church on Sunday, and live for the Devil the other 6-3/4 days of the week”.

            How true. Remember, I believe his name was Tiller, the abortion “doctor” who boasted about the tens of thousands of babies he had aborted? He was sent to Hell in church while passing the collection plate. Too bad the congregation was not able to see the hordes of demons that came to collect his soul.

          It shows they are afraid of Rand Paul.

          You can easily identify who the communists, I mean Democrats, ah but I repeat myself, and their MSM lackies are afraid of because that is who they demonise.

          They basically viewed Juan Mc Cain as one of their own.

          • Christin

            Yes, Old Henry,

            The Demons, I mean Demos, are out to ruin Rand Paul’s reputation like they did with Sarah Palin. The Left lies and demonizes their strong Conservative opponents in hopes of doing ‘character assassination’ so that the Conservative will not get the positive attention and leadership positions he/she needs to change things (spending, debt, jobs, regulations, and taxes) in WA DC for the better of all Americans.

            The six Democrat senators are “LIBELING” Senator Rand Paul and should be held accountable to their lies.

            Do you remember Dick Turbin, I mean Dick Durbin, standing on the FLOOR OF THE UNITED STATES SENATE and comparing our troops to mass-murdering Nazis, communists, Pol Pot?

            He should have been drug out of that chamber, strung up and hanged on the front lawn of the Capital.

            Can you imagine if a Republican had made a similar statement of, say, Planned Parenthood, ACORN, NAACP?

          • Christin

            Yes, I remember the traitor…

            Being hanged or terminated from Congress doesn’t seem to be an option for Leftist Progressives (Communists) who go against the Constitution of the United States of America and Lie about others or demonize them and their lives.

            Hypocracy… Republicans or Conservatives would get the burning at the stake.

            People can disagree about war… when and with whom war should be declared (BY CONGRESS) if at all, but the soldiers are just doing what the Congress or Commrade-in-Chief, I mean Commander in Chief tells them to do.

            I wish our men and women in uniform would just come home and stop fighting with the Muslim nations. The Middle Eastern people have been fighting since the beginning of time and nothing has changed… except we have Redistributed Our Wealth to them by buying their oil and not drilling for our own plentiful American oil and gas resources.

            Frankly, I’m beginning to wonder if most wars are ‘false flags’ (that I have learned aboaut on this site by some) that have been triggered by TPTB to “toy or play” with a people group and get high on our destruction of each other. Hell’s going to be full of these evil people.

        • Cawmun Cents

          First I would like to exclaim that nobody is Christian because of what they have done.They are given grace because of what Christ did.Salvation is a gift for believeing that Christ died to save you from the wages of sin,which is etenal death.It is not something you can earn,and it is not your choice,but Gods choice,who he surrounds himself with.As a Christian,you should be on your knees thanking God for His great mercy,not talking of how others have fallen short.All fall short of the glory of God.Secondly,people have differing opinions on the subject of Christianity,but who among Christians can say that they are completely perfect?None.My point is that peoples view of those who call themselves Christians,whether or not they truly are,is skewed because they do not know what being Christian truly means.It doesnt make us any better off than they are except that we have been forgiven for our sinful wages.We are merely not required to pay those wages to God.Praise be to God for that!Please try to be patient with those who are not yet called or ready to know God.But for His grace go we all hence to pay the wages of sin.

        Isn’t that because those groups you name have different names than Al Qaeda, Taliban and other easily recognizeable names of participants in their group therapy round-pounds?
        Libs have been intentionally MSM educated to think that Palestinian “freedom fighters” are “separate”, categorically diverse from any other Iran backed or Saudi backed sort of Nobel Peace Prize winners like Sorry-toe-row, Barry or Gorey, Al.
        They’ve been taught. Now the cement has cured and not much is going to change it. So, I guess this nation’s course is set – their vote counts “1″, also.
        Like a few astte commentators have shown: Libs are in the minority. Therefore – they rule.

      • JeffH

        Vigilant, You are more correct than wrong. It all fits neatly into indoctrination through education. Total unadulterated hypocricy!

        Last week the National Heroes Tour of some of the most honored veterans of the Iraq War was scheduled to appear at Forest Lake High School in the Minneapolis/St Paul area. Pete Hegseth, founder of Vets for Freedom, the sponsor of the tour, is an alumnus of that high school. Apparently in “The Democratic Underground” forums there was an announcement of a press conference by unidentified groups to oppose the appearance. They expressed outrage that Vets for Freedom were going to meet with students to “indoctrinate them on the joys of war” according to reporter Katherine Kersten. They called on members to oppose the appearance and the school promptly cancelled the visit by the NHT. On short notice, the vets moved their program to an American Legion hall, and the venue was packed to overflowing, including some students who skipped school to attend. It seems that some people seem to think that veterans speaking about their experiences is a “political event”, even if others just want to hear from vets about their experiences.

        Yet…The University of North Dakota is sponsoring a lecture by 1960s Weather Underground bomber Bill Ayers, now a “distinguished professor of education” at the University of Illinois, Chicago. Other colleges have done the same including Ayers appearence at Fresno State U., late last year, where I live.

        Columbia University invited Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to speak, and the President of Columbia University spoke harshly to the Iranian. Columbia University professors planned to go to Iran to apologize to Ahmadinejad, who runs a terrorist regime, for the harsh words of the university president. This also was not a “political event”.

        Iran favors the disappearance of Israel, the murder of homosexuals, and the stoning to death of those convicted of adultery, among other things. I suspect that the National Heroes Tour would not be welcomed at Columbia, nor would a speaker from the Boy Scouts of America. “Political Events”. Go figure.

        Bush leads us to war with terrorists and Hussein and he’s chastised by just about everyone but his wife and father. I’m sure there was a motive along with some humanitarian gestures by the US in the Iraq attack. France and Obama plead with the UN to attack Qaddafi’s evil forces without finishing off Qaddafi himself. The Obama US lead the attacks and immediatley the media and the Obamanites are on board saying it was for democracy and it was humanitarian while the evil Bush is a warmonger! It seems that Obama and his ilk justify war through selectivity. Humanitarian efforts my arse! You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink!

        Is Obama a warmonger? You betcha! Every bit as much as that “evil” Bush was! Don’t expect to read or hear much about the “Warmonger in Chief” though, “Humanitarian in Chief” sounds so rosey…doesn’t it.

          Except inflation Jeff. It is an earthen dam holding back d’ Nile!
          (Pun intended). We can hope for the best, pray for the best, work for the best, but God has revealed that big time inflation is coming. On a personal level all who can, need to prepare for it. It is rapidly accelerating and congress seems not to care. If every member of congress was forced to put their retirement benefits into US Treasury Bonds they would begin serious work to solve the problems that they have created. As it is they think 61 Billion out of 3,000 Billion of borrowed money is a draconian fanatic cut. I hope I’m wrong but I think we are to far gone, to far in the hole to get out. We have to borrow FOUR THOUSAND MILLION DOLLARS PER DAY just to pay the owners of the Federal Reserve Bank, the Chinese, the Japanese, and all the others who own so much of the USA today. Just 19 months to elections and we can get rid of more of the congress who will not stick to principles. The trouble is the country may not last as long as some of these members of congress. Do what you can with the knowledge that prices on everything but houses are going to triple. Congress has made that inevitable as they allow the government to keep on spending money no one has. That’s why we are just making it up out of thin air. May God help us.

            God has revealed to those who would listen. Ask most liberals and they would say “what”?

            Note that God has revealed what is coming. The coming inflation was created by man. Specifically by printing a trillion or so more pieces of paper called Dollar. God’s law of supply and demand shows us what WILL happen next.

            And the law of supply and demand cares not what you believe in.

        • Ruby

          Agreed. They already have another reason to hate “us”…that is that Shariah law is not the law of the land here, and most Americans are not practicing Muslims. I submit that ultimately that IS why they hate us. Our aid to Israel adds fuel to that fire.

          • Christin

            Yes, I agree Ruby, but I think it goes deeper than that. It is not just because America has supported Israel up until this unConstitutional presidency. They HATE us because we are a “Christian nation”… that means we are [Jesus] Christ followers. Jesus tells us in the Bible that “they will hate you for His name’s sake.”

        • Michael J.

          Harold Olsen,
          With due respect, yes it is naive to think that Mulim countries will no longer hate us if we stop sending aid to Israel. Muslim coutries refer to Israel as “The little Satan”, and America is “The big Satan” to them.

          The reality of foreign aid is that it is dispersed in exchange for clandestine foreign policy backing in matters pertinent to our countries economic and national security well being. Unfortunately it has evolved into political blackmail forged against us by the benefactors of said aid and is like the proverbial Genie once left out of the bottle being impossible to be put back in. Though I agree with Rand Paul in that foreign aid including aid to Israel is vile and repugnant, it’s a bit naive to think that it is something we will be able to change.

            In my post below in my comment to Chip I stated that upon reflection on the data put forth in the article I did agree that we should end ALL foreighn aid. However, we should also make it completely clear that we will side militarily with Israel whenever it becomes necessary.

            Foreign aid paid for by taxpayer dollars is just wrong no matter which foreign government it is given to. For Israel, it puts them in the position of a person accepting stolen money from a thief. For what else can you call taking money at gunpoint (try not paying taxes) and giving it to people that the taxpayer might not want to have the money go to?

        • patty

          History has shown that Isreal only fights back when attacked. One of the reasons that the US gives money to Isreal is so that Isreal will not competely turn to glass their aggressor. Isreal does not say that Muslims should not exist. Do Muslims say the same in kind?

        Dear Patriot66:

        If you think ending aid to Israel would end terrorist’s hate of the U.S. you are either living in a third dimention world or completely dilusional.

        Muslims hate the U.S. for what we ARE, a free, prosperous, Christian nation – in spite of what the “jug-eared” (thanks i41) muslim-in-cheif believes. They will never stop their quest to overcome and rule the U.S.

        The only thing those rag-heads understand is a boot on their neck and a boot up their a$$.

        • Angel

          Actually sir, I beg to differ. The only reason that the Muslims hate America is because they think we are the great Satan. They also think that, under the Koran, it is their duty to conquer all nations and make them submit to Sharia law because that is what their god…allah wants and says to do. Also, after succeeding in this task, it opens up the door for their so called savior to come. The Mahdi is who he is called. What many don’t know if their Mahdi is our anti-Christ!

          • Angel

        I’m afraid I must disagree. This statement is too perilously close to the Rev. Wright’s assertion that 9/11 was “the chickens coming home to roost,” or the NYC mosque’s Imam saying America has no one but itself to blame for 9/11.

        With or without Israel, the war on terror will continue for as long as radical Islamists use the presence of America ANYWHERE in the Middle East as a pretext for terrorism. The imposition of Sharia Law on the US is unrelated to our support of Israel.

        • Lewis Munn

          Just one minor correction, the Muslims will give up on attacking us only when we are subjugated to them, as the Qur’an says. ONLY when we are subjugated like the rest of the world, and they will be alert to cut the heads off any dissenters.

        Rand Paul voted “unanimous” on the “no fly zone” vote in the Senate 30 days ago!! Thats an uncontestable fact! Then he goes on T.V. and says the President should have Consulted? He did!

Liars are liars, but this takes the cake, during an uprising of 20 yr olds in the entire Middle East who are asking for Democracy and Freedom, not Theocracy! We could be winning the entire War for hearts and minds of the new generation and were playing politics??? How pathetic not to know when were winning!

        There was a band of rebels once, that had no Naval Power…no Navy! They fought to free themselves from the most powerful army and navy in the world. The chances that they would succeed, were almost zero. The idealistic pro Thomas Paine revolution­aries, The French, saw the dilemma..m­any said it was “not worth it” it ” could not work out ” American untrained locals could never win against the profession­al highly trained British Empire.They needed cannon, rifles, uniforms, powder….everything! The French and later the Spanish, armed them!
        They did it anyway! They used their Naval Power and saved American ports etc. A 19 yr old British Naval Officer, wealthy Lafette!, was the first one in, with 30 ships…despite his wealthy heritage…because he believed in the writings and philosophy of John Paine as did Jefferson, Washington and the rest!!

        The rest is history…­.our history!

          NO WHERE nor AT ANY TIME did our Congress (or Rand & Ron Paul) vote to send OUR military. There is a lot of difference in showing support and a vote to stipulate the support and actually voting to commit our men & women in the military.

      • Richard Pawley

        “Imagine, the “war on terror” over and peace forever” you say. Yes, we can dream and it’s good to have dreams, but evil cannot be ignored. If we had ignored Hitler we would all be speaking German or English as a second language. If Kennedy had not stood up to Russia and the 161 nuclear weapons aimed at us from Cuba, we might not even be here today. Hitler’s favorite scapegoat was the Jewish people and the Muslims from Turkey to Iran have made his autobiography, MEIN KAMPF, a best seller in Arabic.

        Besides Americans don’t turn on their friends (at least we didn’t use to). That’s more of a Nazi trick. They had an agreement with the Soviet Union but then they attacked Russia. Sadly, even the Bible says that (most likely as a politically correct matter of expediency) ‘all the nations of the world will turn against Israel’ and the blood will be as high as a horse’s bridle or something close to that. The leader of Iran believes he has been chosen to kill a 100,000,000 people to usher in his Mahdi or chosen one (Christians call him the anti-Christ). That is why he want’s a nuclear weapon. Israel is just a stepping stone and since their entire population is only a third of Mexico City that wouldn’t even be 10% of the needed deaths. You may not take any of this seriously but what is important is THAT THEY DO. The goal of Islam is and always has been world domination. My 92 year old mother recently died but she was concerned about the inroads that ignorant Americans had allowed in letting Sharia Law make it so far in this country. The ACLU might stop the Christians and they might stop the Jews but they will not stop Sharia once it makes a big enough beachhead. In France alone there are some 700 places that even the police do not go. They didn’t pay attention to what was happening to them until it was/is virtually to late. There are decent Muslims in the world but at least 100,000,000 million of them have chosen to be enemies of mankind and in the words of one of their leaders, “You love Pepsi, and we love death!”

        Russia is certainly no friend of Israel and Russians don’t give them anything but heartache but many Russians have died at the hand of Muslim Terrorists. One who had killed many children in an elementary school said, “As much as you love life, we love death even more!” It is completely naive to believe that if we stiffed our friends, the only Democracy in that part of the world, that we would somehow benefit. If we have fallen that low then we deserve the chaos that is coming here later in this decade and that I have tried to warm people about for nearly 20 years.

        Be glad you live in this part of the world because although you will be affected by WWIII you have less of a chance of being disintegrated by a WMD, but if the west and the western ideals of freedom and the worth of the individual (yes they are Judeo-Christian ideals) don’t win this one, terrible as it will be, the world will not be a place you will want to live in. Since we can’t move to another planet in our lifetime we had better be concerned with real life here and now. Don’t get carried away with the idea of Nirvana or heaven on earth that the Marxists who think like the Muslims (that the individual is unimportant) and all that counts is the collective, have long tried to bring about on earth. Our planet will not last that long. We need to stop squandering all the borrowed money we have or we are not going to have anything very soon. It is irrelevant if anyone believes this or not. They will see it if congress doesn’t stop playing games. 61 billion out of 3,100 Billion and the Democrats and RINO Republicans are saying “that’s to much”. Remember that when you are paying $10 for a gallon of milk as I said in THE LAST DAYS OF THE LATE GREAT UNITED STATES and the Great Famine that Followed. Just 19 months till the election and we can get rid of more of those who do not care what happens to the United States.

        • Patriot66

          Hi Richard -
          Your points are well taken and I actually agree with you. Please don’t take my comments as an attack on Israel, as almost everyone has. I was at work when I made my short comment (blog?) on the topic and did not elaborate much. I agree that there are radicals out there that wish us harm, but have doubts on their resolve. I find it hard to believe such a fanatical group(s) could have such a hard time doing us harm. Not much has happened here since 9/11. I’m not looking forward to it, and I hope my comment does not spur such events (from the radicals or the ones making billions off the fear of it) but does not seem like such a hard thing to do, there are just too many ways, too many loopholes. I do believe there is a great reckoning on the horizon and believe we must deal with the Muslim problem in an aggressive manner. I do not have the solution for this, but will probably involve bombs and guns. A more practical solution would involve a more isolationist approach, where like minded peoples can gather and protect each other as our government opens the floodgates to the terrorist they are letting in by the millions. It’s as if they are welcoming the conflict and setting the stage right here on American soil. Again, I have no solution for this. How does a “free” nation pick and chose who can come in and who cannot (by religion, race, political ideals, etc…) without becoming a Nazi like regime.

          Myself, I try and keep it simple when trying to figure out reason and purpose for the things the handful of individuals who control our government does. I put myself in their shoes and say “What would I do if I wanted to enslave all mankind” I take this reasoning and apply it to the current events of the day.

        We have never been a “Christian Nation” according to Thomas Jefferson and all the Founding fathers! This lie has to stop. We are a secular nation that tolerates all religions. If we didn’t, various Christian factions would have had multiple wars, right from the start. Thats why the Constitution only mentions it when it’s separating it from our Constitution. Thats why Christianity has thrived in America. Every time Christians try to get in bed with Government, it ends up in a disaster for Christians. Ask Billy Graham who thought it a good idea to believe Nixon. He paid highly for that, as did the Christian right!
        President Obama is a Christian! What kind? Who cares! Thats exactly my point! …. it’s a “free” nation of religious people!

          to Christianity that was a choice of apostasy that he committed and he has no right to choose what faith this country believes in. (still 80%
          christian) Small wonder that the Arab religious leaders haven’t called
          for Obama’s fatwa for being apostolic.

          The right of freedom of religion is not to protect the government from the churches,but to protect the churches from the government.If it were the other way around,then the government would be taxing the churches.The amendment reads,(paraphrasing)”Congress shall not establish”which means that it is a no,no for the government to interfere with the churches.The Constitution says nothing about the churches being involved in government. That is where,Mr.nickwolf,your education falls way short of reality.Please tell your leftist professors that the Americans know what the Constitution says and that he/she has made a greivous error in thinking that they do not.

          We have never been a “Christian Nation” according to Thomas Jefferson and all the Founding fathers! This lie has to stop. We are a secular nation that tolerates all religions. If we didn’t, various Christian factions would have had multiple wars, right from the start. Thats why the Constitution only mentions it when it’s separating it from our Constitution. Thats why Christianity has thrived in America. Every time Christians try to get in bed with Government, it ends up in a disaster for Christians. Ask Billy Graham who thought it a good idea to believe Nixon. He paid highly for that, as did the Christian right!
          President Obama is a Christian! What kind? Who cares! Thats exactly my point! …. it’s a “free” nation of religious people!
          Thats the model for the world….all else leads to Wars and pathetic stupidy….enough of this!

          This is a nation based and founded on Christioan principles and beliefs. Chriistians have been, and are, a majority in this country and that makes it a Christioan nation.

          Due to the persecution our Founders edured in Europe they made sure that our founding principles would tolerate all religions. That is a Christion ideology unlike many others such a Islam.

          Given your communist, ah liberal, (I repeat myself) leanings one would have to believe you are an atheist and are extremely agitated by anything Christian. Hence your silly rantings.

    • Vigilant

      kilrntex,

      “I say cut the enemies of America off and send Israel more arms instead of money. They are our only allies in this world and as a Christian we must stand by them to the very end.”

      I agree with you.

      Foreign aid is not categorically bad. Some is bad, some is well-intentioned but ineffective, some is good. Aid to the PLO terrorists is nothing short of bad, a form of extortion money that enriched Arafat and resulted in NOTHING good. In the case of Egypt (second only to Israel in terms of aid), our support of the miltary may have averted a true debacle in that country.

      The foreign aid we’ve devoted to AIDS prevention in Africa may have saved literally millions of lives.

      To put matters into perspective, our total foreign aid outlays are 2% of our Federal budget, and aid to Israel is only 3/10 of one percent of that budget. From Israel’s standpoint, our aid accounts for just shy of 5% of their total revenues.

      In the final analysis, the media and many of us are overly concerned about foreign aid and things such as pork barrel spending, both drops in the bucket. Our attention should be focused on the big ticket items such as military and domestic welfare spending.

        “In the final analysis, the media and many of us are overly concerned about foreign aid and things such as pork barrel spending, both drops in the bucket.”

        But drops add up to cups which add up to buckets full. Every cut in spending is important no matter if it is $50 or $50,000,000,000.

          I think VIGILANT was referring to our only allies in that part of the world. We are so wrapped up on the news which is all about the increasing chaos in the Middle East and what will likely become a world war that we forget all all the rest. An honest mistake by someone to involved with the news, but it is good to point it out. A wise man appreciates correction.

          • JC

            I kind of figure the same thing Richard, and I generally repect if not always agree with Vigilant. Still I thought it was an opportunity to remind ourselves we do have traditional friends that we don’t have to buy.
            Just my point of view…

    • Kinetic1

      Kilrntiex,
      Our weapons policy with Israel is already more favorable than any other nation to which we provide aid. Only Israel is allowed to take the money we give them and use it to purchase weapons from their own manufacturers, essentially doubling their aid money. Other governments are required to spend the funds with American manufacturers, making our funds work for us as well. And why do we have this lopsided policy? Because of the religious beliefs of the more extremist Christians in our nation and our government. Why, in a country that is supposed to be based on religious freedom should we base our foreign aid on Biblical scripture?

      • Vigilant

        “Why, in a country that is supposed to be based on religious freedom should we base our foreign aid on Biblical scripture?”

        This leading question is like asking “are you still beating your wife?”

        First of all, any assumption that our foreign aid is based on Bibilical scripture is a canard of the worst sort. What scripture are you talking about when we support a host of Muslim countries?

        Israel’s special relationship with the US is born of both our Judeo-Christian heritage and in recognition of their right to exist as a sovereign nation. In case you haven’t noticed, they are the ONLY democratically formed government in the whole area. You can’t talk about high ideals of democracy amongst a number of dubious rebellions in the M.E, and at the same time hang Israel out to dry. They are our allies, the same as the countries of Western Europe and around the globe.

        Secondly, the attempt to draw the unrelated topic of religious freedom into the argument is either fuzzy logic or intellectual dishonesty. Our religious freedom is based on the Constitution, and you will need to tell us what part of the First Amendment has anything to do with this argument before you can claim any legitimacy.

        • Kinetic1

          Vigilant,
          Are you honestly going to tell me that Israel does not receive special treatment in part due to the religious beliefs of a section of our population? That’s like saying that our relationship with Cuba is not affected by the Cuban-American population. Israel has grown into a very powerful nation. The income levels of their citizens is above those of Spain and Italy. Yes, they exist in a very precarious geopolitical position, and for that reason we have committed ourselves to them, but they receive 1/4 of all our foreign aid! That may have made sense at one time, but given their progress is it really appropriate to continue at this rate?

          • Richard Pawley

            When the dollar is beaten down by the inflation of those who are determined to beat it to death with their insane spending we can give it away to everyone because no one will want it and it will be worth just 30% of what it is now (some think it will become totally worthless and they could be right but that may take a couple of years). China has been trying to get rid of them for years by trading them to other countries for nickel mines (as I pointed out in the first edition of my autobiography), silver mines, gold mines, farmland, oil fields and whatever else they can buy with them. Unfortunately it is far worse than most suspect and that is why non-perishable food is becoming a bit harder to find at non-inflated prices. Check out the following three page letter to the senate if you want to see some startling statistics about how the DEBT IS MORE DIRE THAN ANYONE THINKS and then get ready for the big inflation I warned about in both my books.

            “Yes, they exist in a very precarious geopolitical position, and for that reason we have committed ourselves to them, but they receive 1/4 of all our foreign aid!”

            I beg to differ on your figures. Please check out http://www.vaughns-1-pagers.com/politics/us-foreign-aid.htm and you’ll see that aid to Israel is about 15%, not 25%, of the foreign aid budget.

            Once again, I’ll say: “To put matters into perspective, our total foreign aid outlays are 2% of our Federal budget, and aid to Israel is only 3/10 of one percent of that budget. From Israel’s standpoint, our aid accounts for just shy of 5% of their total revenues.”

    • meteorlady

      You are so right. The times are changing and we can read for ourselves what’s happening in the world today. If we don’t believe one story we can continue reading until we find the truth, eventually…..

      The mainstream media has turned into the a government propaganda machine like we used to believe Russians were subject to. Brainwashing – say something enough and people believe it.

      We need REAL journalists back, not the entertainers we have today.

      • DaveH

          Remember Croncite etal and how they helped loose the war in Nam?

      • Kinetic1

        meteorlady,
        Think about what you have said. “If we don’t believe one story we can continue reading until we find the truth..” And there you have the basis for media like FOX News and Newsmax, report what the people want to hear. Take the latest report on Fox executive Bill Sammon. In his own words he admits to pandering to the far right.

        “I have to admit that I went on TV on Fox News and publicly engaged in what I guess was some rather mischievous speculation about whether Barack Obama really advocated socialism, a premise that privately I found rather far-fetched.”

        He didn’t even believe what he was saying, but he knew it would sell to Fox viewers. So next time you hear or read a story that you don’t believe, ask yourself why. And when you finally do find a version that sits well with you, are you sure it’s the truth, or is the writer just giving you what you want to hear?

        • DaveH

          Obama doesn’t believe in Socialism? Try that on the Liberal boards, Kinetic. Few on here will believe you.

          • JC

            I don’t know DaveH…maybe Obama only sees socialism as a stepping stone to straight up dictatorship…maybe that’s what he believes in? ;)

        • http://Illinois'17th Old Henry

          Sounds like Mr. Sammon is attempting to polish his resume in preparation for a move to MSNBC to work with the girlie-mon with the tinkle going down his leg.

        • DaveH

          Let’s see. Obama took over GM. He and his team considered taking over Bank of America, and Citi. He pushed through a nearly complete takeover of the healthcare industry with the Health Care Bill.
          And now he’s got our military fighting in an Unconstitutional War in Libya.
          Action speaks louder than any words. Only the most blindered Liberal could not see that Obama is a Socialist.

          • JC

            Check out the cartoon video on the sidebar Dave.
            Explains your thought perfectly.

        • Kinetic1

          Dave and OH,
          You’ve missed the point completely. We can debate whether or not the President is a socialist all day long, but that won’t change the fact that an executive at FOX admitted that he went on air and reported what he believed to be a far fetched assertion just to pander to the FOX audience. In relation to meteorlady’s comment about “reading until we find the truth..” it says a lot about the amount of trust that we can put in our media and our own desire to have our opinions validated.

          • DaveH

            Sure, Kinetic, so by your own advice we should ignore what you have to say since I have caught you in some flat out lies.

          • Kinetic1

            Dave,
            Do you have proof or are you just posturing?

          • DaveH

            Okay here’s one:
            February 8, 2011. Kinetic said “Given that the majority of Americans do not want a ban on abortion”.
            Now here it was not really stated whether you meant in relation to the healthcare bill or in general.
            But if the former, according to Rasmussen “Fifty-three percent (53%) of voters favor a ban on abortion coverage in any health insurance plan that receives federal subsidies.”, and “40% are opposed to such a ban in the proposed health care legislation now before Congress.”
            If the later, the ratio is “50% of Likely U.S. Voters consider themselves pro-choice”. Still not a Majority as stated by Kinetic.

          • DaveH

            You also made a similar claim about the Health Care Bill (that the majority of Americans wanted it), which was so far from the truth that you couldn’t possibly have just been mistaken.

            The thing is, Kinetic, that I don’t keep a notebook of your lies, but I guess I will start, so I can prove it more robustly in the future.

          • DaveH

            Also, assuming the story about Bill Sammon is true, I would say that he is still a step above most of the liars I have known who will never admit to the lie, no matter how redhanded you catch them.

          • DaveH

            Even on this page, Kinetic, you have made at least one misleading statement — “Only Israel is allowed to take the money we give them and use it to purchase weapons from their own manufacturers, essentially doubling their aid money”. Doubling their aid? Because they buy some of their equipment from their own manufacturer’s? I don’t think so. It would be lessening their aid if they were forced to spend that money on American Products. And as it stands, Israel spends about 75% of that money on American weapons. So, it is quite a stretch of reality to call it “essentially doubling their aid”.

            You see, the thing I find dangerous about you, Kinetic, is that you are indeed well-spoken. So people casually listening to your comments probably often have a tendency to consider your exaggerations and conjecture as fact unless they know better.

          • DaveH

            While researching the foreign aid issue, I ran across this interesting point of view:
            http://samsonblinded.org/blog/oddly-we-dont-want-your-money.htm

          • Kinetic1

            Dave,
            First, let’s set the ground rules. To lie is to “pretend with intent to deceive”. If I or anyone else on this board have researched a “fact” and believe it to be the truth, then by definition it is not a lie. If, on the other hand I/we are playing fast and loose with the “facts” or take something out of context with intent to distort, that is a lie. I have never intentionally lied on this site.

            Now, onto your list.
            1) Abortion. As you noted I did not state the parameters, but the fact is I was speaking in general and not in relation to government funding. The most recent poll I could find states, “A March Pew Research Center poll shows that 54 percent of Americans surveyed support the right to a legal abortion in all or most cases.” but how clever of you to specify “likely voters” to make your point.

            2) What was that I said about context? My statement was that, in the beginning of the debate polls showed a majority of Americans supporting the health care bill. The point being that dragging it out for over a year while trying to appease the Republicans allowed the same time to turn public opinion. I never said that the majority supported the final bill.

            3) “It would be lessening their aid if they were forced to spend that money on American Products.” Did you just gloss over the point that other nation are required to use the money to buy from American companies? So in context, compared to other nations who receive such military aid, Israel gets both the benefit of new weapons and a boost to their own economy when they buy from themselves. over 26% of the military aid is allowed to be used for such purposes, and while it may not work out to exactly double, that ability clearly increases the value of every dollar they spend on their own weapons as opposed to ours.

            Let’s look into some other facts about aid to Israel. “Using reports compiled by Clyde Mark of the Congressional Research Service and other sources, freelance writer Frank Collins tallied for the Washington Report all of the extra items for Israel buried in the budgets of the Pentagon and other federal agencies in fiscal year 1993.Washington Report news editor Shawn Twing did the same thing for fiscal years 1996 and 1997.”

            “They uncovered $1.271 billion in extras in FY 1993, $355.3 million in FY 1996 and $525.8 million in FY 1997. These represent an average increase of 12.2 percent over the officially recorded foreign aid totals for the same fiscal years, and they probably are not complete. It’s reasonable to assume, therefore, that a similar 12.2 percent hidden increase has prevailed over all of the years Israel has received aid.” Add to this the fact that Israel receives their aid in one lump sum as opposed to quarterly and you’ll see that Israel can invest those funds and collect interest on the unused portion. Does it ad up to 1/4 of all foreign aid? Based on several articles and a some quick cyphering, it comes darn close.

            So, was I lying in each of these cases as you said I was? Well, if we accept your lack of context, your slanting of the situation and some occasional pretzel logic, then I suppose I was. In the real world however, I’d have to question your means and motive.

Corruption can be found at every level and you are truly naive if you think unions are not some of the most corrupt influences out there, including our own government. It is rank!!!

            I went to the socialist republic of kalifornia to visit relatives. While there a cousin who worked security at the docks took us there to show us around. While we were at the docks he explained to us how the unions forced the companies to allow theft of almost anything that they handled. His job was not ot stop theft but limit it to about 1% of what came accross the docks.

          • Duffy

            Right On Thamera. Look what’s happening in UnionGrove,WI. Small businesses are being threatened by big union bosses. The legality of this tactic is being investigated and rightfully so. Unions had their
            sense of being at one time. However, with all of the regulatory agencies into play, it is my opinion they are not necessary. Incidentally, the still haven’t found Hoffa.

          • Lewis Munn

            I agree. Unions, well run, have a place to offset Big management. But Big Labor becomes almost immediately as corrupt as Big Management, with leaders who are multi-millionaires, and imposing bad rules on the laboring force to get more money to the Union leaders and their bought politicians. Look at how much Obama got from the unions, and how he paid them back with monopoly powers greater than the robber barons of Industy years ago! A union robber baron is just as bad as a employer robber baron.

            Possibly worse, as he can hold up whole blocks of our economy, like destroying our childrens’ education until he gets his own way! Gonna be hard to make up for the losses now. I taught a little, and the union took our good courses and demanded we gut them to keep kids in school longer, to get more tuition money, which the unions got a handsome part!

            Many years ago now, but obviously, the Unions are even less interested in education and more in getting rich!

            Thank you for the info on the French recycling “nucler” waste. I didn’t get it read until yesterday and it was FACSINATING.

            Somehow that information / knowledge needs to be drummed into the American consciousness.

            And the 50s and 60s. When I was a kid it was somewhat of a joke that you always wanted to buy a new car that was built on Wednesday. The union assembly workers would spend Monday and Tuesday sobering up / recovering from the week end and Thrusday and Friday making plans for the week end.

            Cute joke! You mentioned the unions again and I was a salesman in the 1970′s for several years and I went into the homes of all kinds of people. I recall once a story someone told me while I was in their home of touring the old Ford plant in Mahwah, NJ and he told me that he observed someone watching a game on a small TV while he was supposed to be assembling parts for a car. He told me that he saw three parts go by that didn’t have the part the worker was supposed to install and he felt guilty about not telling someone. In another home I was told that dealers in the tri-state area of NY, NJ and Connecticut often preferred to pay the transportation to get their cars from Detroit rather than from nearby Mahwah because of all the trouble they had with those cars. They finally closed the plant. Think I mentioned that in one of my books.

            I used to subscribe to a magazine dedicated to old Fords and several years ago they ran an article about someone restoring a 57 Fairlane that was all original, in solid shape. When they tood the driver’s door abart they found an empty whiskey bottle in the bottom of the door (no cap on the bottle).

            I also read stories in that magazine about how line workers would put marbles / ball bearings into quarter panels and other hard to reach areas to create rattles that would anoy owners and be VERY difficult for service depts to locate.

            Those union doops really shot themselves as the Japs cleaned their clocks and we had to then listen to them whine.

        • Richard Pawley

          The only difference that I have seen growing up in a right-to-work state is that even poor people could afford houses there. The property taxes on houses in NY where I live now are as much as 14 times what they are in some right-to-work states where union bosses don’t dictate to local governments. In some right-to-work states a person can buy a similar house just for what a citizen in NY pays for the taxes on their house. It’s why NY has lost a million citizens in the past decade, and Michigan, and Illinois, and Ohio, and Wisconsin have lost citizens too, while Texas has grown by over 4,200,000 in the same time. Even Mr. Democrat, Franklin Roosevelt felt that unions didn’t belong in government but at long at they can zap it to the middle class and the middle class can do nothing about it but move out of such states they often do. The riots will begin when the unions realize they have squeezed the golden goose dry and that all those fancy pensions at far higher amounts than those who pay them can ever have, are no more. It’s why a number of states are almost bankrupt and the national government is just creating money out of the air because they are broke too. States can’t do that but with no money they can’t balance their budgets either. I think it was Illinois that upped their state income tax by over 65 percent but that is just the beginning and is no where near enough. If congress doesn’t stop squandering what borrowed money they can and reduce the spending dramatically (not a trivial 61 Billion out of 3,800 Billion) the resulting inflation is going to require more than the 20,000 troops the army is training to quell the union riots that are coming. Prepare as you can. You might only have a year or two. May God help us, no one else is going to do so.

        You need a refresher course in your history sir!The Puritans left England because they couldnt get a fair shake from the then government of the Crown.They came to America first and landed on Plymouth Rock to get relief from government restrictions on religion.It was not a bunch of hackneyed athiests who were tired of religious persecution in England,running from the hard hand of the Papacy.Nope!These were hardcore religious zealots who first showed up on the Massachusetts shore.They believed in God and did all throughout the several centuries up until the godless progressive revisionists got hold of the institutions of this nation.Only then did the history begin to change to reflect lies that were told about the founding of this nation.If they were socialists and godless as many pther places were then and are now,the Declaration of Independence,and the Constitution would have never been penned.It is you Mr. nickwolf who fail to observe the true ideas behind both Christiianity and America.God help you and your marxist revisinary professors for trying to leave Him out of what is clearly His handi-work!

          I know that we all celebrate the sacrifices of the Pilgrims every Thanks Giving day, but the facts show that they were very small in number and were not as successful as other Puritans who did not believe in separating from the Church of England. It’s wonderful to believe in American folk lore, but one can’t ignore that the success of our nation is due in no short measure to the thousands of people who came here not for religious freedom, but for the financial opportunities that come with a new land.

          • DaveH

            What facts show that “they were very small in number and were not as successful as other Puritans who did not believe in separating from the Church of England”?

        • Richard Pawley

          In a similar vein the first thing that the settlers did who landed in Virginia 13 years before the Puritans was erect a larger than life cross and claim this new land for Jesus Christ. I was shocked when the official government line at the 400th Anniversary of that 1607 landing was that the Jamestown settlers came here seeking economic freedom. It’s as if our government controlled by progressives and Marxists will do anything to reduce the spiritual influence that helped build this great nation. When the Marxists and socialists are through with it you will not recognize it and we will not be so great. Remember the election is in 19 months, likely our last chance to change things and purge the congress of all those who only care for themselves and don’t give a hoot for the nation.

          It is well known Historically that the Crown was not really kind to the Puritans.King James(the one who penned his own Bible,still in use today)gave more kind gesture to the Catholic church than he did to the Puritans.This despite the fact that the Catholics tried several times to assassinate him.When the persecution continued,the Puritan leaders decided to come to the New World to form their own colony.There may have been a few financially minded tag-alongs,but most of the settlers were Puritans.Any reputable historian would tell you this.You can try to discount Gods role in this nations forming,but you will eventually be proven wrong by actual historical happenstance.It was freedom of religion that caused these people to come here to get away from governmental persecution.Its right there in the first Amendment to the Constitution.Only a marxist would refute the hard evidence.

  • jvr

    With the fuller background as explained I agree that Rand Paul has been unfairly attacked as being anti-Semitic. But I think the idea of stopping all foreign aid is naive and simplistic. I’m all for carefully targeted and wisely monitored foreign aid. The U.S. has important strategic interests in several parts of the world and foreign aid is one “weapon” we have to bolster alignments. The ultimate philosophy behind stopping all foreign aid is isolationism and the world is too interconnected and complex for isolationism. Foreign aid is a tiny percentage of the U.S. budget and the benefits of maintaining it far outweigh the cost even in times of economic difficulty.

    • Kevin Beck

      The evils of foreign aid probably outweigh the benefits to this nation. We are transferring money from poor people in rich nations (like ours), to rich people in poor nations who use this money to keep the rest of their nation poor. It’s like our nation’s continuing experiment with welfare, except on an international scale. We use it as a bribe to try to buy friendship with other nations, but we get killed with it in the end. Just remember in Egypt, when the rebels were holding up weapons made in the USA: Was it our intent for them to use these same weapons against one of our allies?

      • Kinetic1

        Kevin,
        The “evils of foreign aid” as you call them are providing information about women’s rights to villiges where men treat women like property and spread diseases without concern. They teaching parents how to care for their sick children with modern knowledge instead of traditional superstition. That aid brings satellite radios to remote areas and helps to promote and finance radio stations and programs that work to balance out the misinformation promoted by corrupt governments. You may have never heard about these programs, but I can tell you all about them, first hand.

        Do foreign governments misuse our funds and redirect the goods we send? Of course they do. The problem is these are the stories that they favor on the news. No one wants to hear about the success stories, that’s not “news”. No, we just want to hear about what’s wrong, where the corruption is, who’s stealing and who’s lying. Cutting off all aid would be a crime against humanity. We just need to better control where our money goes and cut out the waste.

            Sort of but not really.
            More what I’m saying is, when we try to introduce 21st century ideas to 7th century people we baffle them. The ideas, the human rights, the technology, the life style we’ve come to enjoy were developed by a “developing people”…us! And when you try and infuse these ideas, values or morals to a people who have been living the same day to day, hand to mouth existence for literally centuries, you absolutely baffle them. I don’t say they are stupid or unintelligent, what I’m saying is our ways are often strange to them, and while they are civilized enough to tolerate our incursion with a smile and some level of curiosity, the minute we leave we might as well have never been there. It seems to take a very short time for them to look at the things they were taught and the facilities / equipment they were given and say “F**K IT That’s way too much work” and it all goes to hell. Things like using a bathtub to water cattle or goats…that what it looks like it’s made for to them. I’ve seen it, and it’s a waste of time and money. Which by the way is not a criticism of the people who are trying to help them. Their hearts are in the right place…but for the most part, they are wasting their time.

            People will reach whatever standard of living they are meant to reach according to nature and necessity…not foreign aid.

    • DaveH

      JVR,
      Eliminating foreign aid has nothing to do with Isolationism. No more than you not supporting your neighbors would make you an unsociable person.
      If you want to get together with like-minded people to donate your own money, more power to you. But it is immoral to forcibly take money from unwilling donors to donate to the charities that a small group of leaders determine to be worthy.
      Besides, you can not buy peoples’ (or countries’) loyalty. Never have, never will.

      • Allen in reality

      • Carlucci

        There are all sorts of privately funded charities all over the world who do the very things foreign aid is allegedly supposed to be doing. World Vision is one of these private charities, and they do amazing work.

        We are not the world’s ATM machine. Governments that constantly pick up the tab (and the US is the worst) ultimately do not command respect from the rest of the world. All foreign aid must end, just like welfare must end here in America. Private charities and religious organizations have proven for years that they can take care of people at home and abroad that really need help.

    Hard for me to decide if this action (by Democratic senators) is a party tactic or other…. Never the less, the U.S. remains vigilant in supporting foriegn interests–though financially in no position to ligimately do so (as is Rand’s point).

    Specific to Israel, some possess a deeper cause or basis; for example, the Zionist movement that seemes to unconditionally hold to preserving and protecting this geographic place–citing a Biblical, ordained cause. In this vein is the resolute position that seemingly has no tactic this side of Heaven–but holds to the belief that the U.S. is almost, if not completely, essential to Providence.

    • Mike in MI

      Mr. Rainer -
      I seems rather un-Providential to me that the hand which provides
      “good” to me also provides “good” to my enemies so they can be bad to me.
      Thus does our despicable foreign policy sustain and build evil activities in the world while sustaining, through indirect transfers of our money (taxpayers’ money), corporate welfare payments to the well connected friends of our Congressmen and Senators. Thus, makers and purveyors of the weapons of war and mayhem keep the money rolling in to their coffers so our friendly enemies can more expeditiously maim and kill our own soldier/sons and soldier/daughters.
      How deliciously evil that is: certain Representatives and Senators can vote to give away our money to foreign nations as “aid” which they know will come back here and be spent in favored manufacturing facilities (for warfare). BUT, AT THE SAME TIME THEIR NAMES CAN’T BE DIRECLY CONNECTED TO BELLICOSE ACTIVIY – especially if they want to appear to be “sweet, gentle doves” who rail against the hateful, warmongering, “hawkish”, Repblican/conservative, flag-waving patriot, Neanderthal types accross the aisle.

  • Jeryl

    I’m a strong supporter of Israel, but I’m also a strong supporter of Sen. Rand Paul. Twisting the truth is what Democrats (and many Republicans) do. Lying is dismissed as “just politics.” We DO need to stop all foreign aid. In addition, we need to get our troops out of Libya, Afghanistan and Iraq and bring them home. We would save billion upon billions just by doing so and by ceasing foreign aid. If we ceased foreign aid to all, including Israel, it would still be a net gain for Israel. I love Israel and stopping foreign aid to all is not anti-semitic. We should still support Israel militarily and be ready to stand by them.

  • http://aol evie hayes

    I think Senator Paul is right – I totally agree that when a country is in the terrible financial situation we are at, we help ourselves first, then what is left over, we help other countries. I also believe that all earkmarks should have never been approved last yearit’s a little late this year to recover the funding that went out for earmarks last year a terrible blunder on the President’s list of blunders!! As for SS I think that Pres Roosevelt wanted to help the Senior population, so he set up this fund for those who are trying to make it in the community rather than have them go to Nursing Homes and other programs federally funded, to afford our seniors to be able to stay in thie homes. So, our $”s need to stay in our Country until the budget is “fixed.” Rand Paul follows my principle – when you don’t have it, don’t give it away to people who really don’t need it!We need it right now! It doesn’t matter which country it is, other than Humanitarian help such as Japan’s recent tragic problems, our aid should be minimal to other countries – No other country gives when their own country is in trouble! Looking at this situation on a micro example, if your family were in trouble, would you give to everyone else regardless of whether they need it or not, rather than your own family who are in trouble ?See my point and why I support Rand Paul’s statement. Perhaps, the Senators who “knocked” Mr. Paul should think of our country as a family, perhaps they would agree with his views! As for helping our country, Social Security was solvent until the Trust fund was moved from the Trust fund account to the General account and the government used the dollars that were available for the situation of Baby Boomers and spent it with no legislature in place for repaying the Trust fund, so it isn’t SS that is going broke nor does it need to be reorganizaed, the government needs to provide a law to repay programs that have plenty of money in them that they use, rather than trying to reform an agency that had the money, but government moved it and spent it! That’s where our issues run at home – no checks and balances or no laws preventing these type issues where the agency is solvent and the government took a solvent agency and bankrupted it, but fail to mention this publicly.Our problem is in federal spending, robbing Peter to pay Paul who doesn’t need it!! Rand Paul is right – keep our $’s at home rather than giving to countries that really do not need it.

    • Disgusted

      To a point you are correct. When a disaster strikes a country everyone should be willing to “lend a hand” to get that country back on its feet. HOWEVER: We sent a billion dollars to Haiti and it is untraceable. Neither Clinton nor Bush who fought tooth and nail for that aid to be sent to Haiti after their natural disaster can account for any of that money. Now Japan has been devastated by a natural disaster, should we send money to them? Japan is one of the three richest countries in the world behind US and China. I don’t think they need our money – and offering our support should be good enough. We offered, it is now their decision to decide whether they want it or not. No monitary help – just logistical help.
      Where were the offers of help from all these countries we have been giving foreign aid to for years when 9-11 happened, or hurricane Katrina. We have had natural disasters within our own borders – I don’t remember hearing about any foreign aid helping us get back on our feet.
      Paul is completely right. I would vote for him if he ran for president – he seems to have a level head on his shoulders.

        Not only can they not account for that Haitian aid money. But, it’s hard to see that Haiti’s situation has markedly improved.

    • Jeep

      evie, not that I totally disagree with your conclusions, but they are based on misinformation. What we refer to as Social Security was never intended to for just Seniors. It was and is a compilation of several existing programs and is actually called the Old-Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance (OASDI) program. If you look at the title you can infer that SS actually covers a broad spectrum of the population, from Seniors to the disabled. Therein lies the rub with cutting SS. The focus has always been on Seniors benefits (such as raising the age of eligibility.) In fact, SS is just a giant govt run Ponzi scheme, wherein we pay into it now for a perceived “benefit” later. Didn’t we put Madhoff in jail for that? Personally I think the whole thing needs to be revamped and eventually let it die out.

      • Thamera

        You are not kidding Jeep. How many people know that you can get disability for being diagnosed with ADHD for example? I don’t plan on SS at all for my retirement. I don’t think anything is going to be ther by then. What a ruse!

            As someone who helped my father work at an early age, and worked in various positions building up facilities, I now have a SS that is barely enough to live on, and huge utility and tax bills coming up.

            Both due to government actions. And NO COL. Another government action, against those of us who worked on SS and it was supposed to last, and we did not get paid enough to invest like rich folks.

            I had a family to rise!!

            Unfortunately, no jobs I am skilled in are still abound, and the government is not interested in helping me. My taxes keep going up and up, to support all the runaway and giveaway programs, both outside the US and inside the US.

            My wife worked, but when she died early all her set aside money was grabbed by the government, who does not believe in family units.

            I understand how hard it is for the elder to survive under the government who takes so much of our money to pay off kids who do not work but keep having children, or came in illegally and are growing big families on Welfare.

            We have a real mess in Washington. And the old folks are being shoved aside! We will be executed to give more money to Washington, and no chance to pass on the family to our grandchildren.

            With all the new programs to help unions, and rich people, and politicians, we older folks are forgotten. I suspect if all the illegal aliens we support now were cleared out en masse, there would be a COL raise for us, and if a lot of really unneeded government programs were scuttled, there would be enough money for us to live simply and pass on our wisdom to the next generation.

            I do suspect the pressure on the elderly is to break the continuity of families and prevent the wisdom of the old being passed on to the young!!

I know of several people that were good decent people, and I never saw so much bad luck in my life. They couldn’t get ahead–and believe me, it was not of their doing. It was just the luck of the draw or something.

      • Allen in reality

        The SS program was well intentioned and it would have very well funded had it not been for loans borrowed against the trust and then written off years after the money was appropriated for Congressional discretionary spending and accounting for said funds were corrupted and now that the baby boomers have come in to start collection, all those former taxpayer’s payroll deductions have been mysteriously misplaced so now there seems to be a crisis. It is now realized that the generation x kids have not gotten jobs yet due to miscellaneous off-shore hiring, manufacturing shift-off, and the entire economy seems to be based primarily on a service sector of which accommodates unskilled labor and job preferences given to foreign immigration booms! (can’t discount increased laziness and drug based lack of motivation.) Soooo…. What of those who have already retired and have invested entirely on relying on their government based pensions? OOOOOPS! Back to work old man!

    Senator Paul is mostly right; Our tax dollars for the main part, go to countries which hate us anyway. Why are we paying them off in our national treasure, only to have them crap in our face; it makes no sense, in fact it is down right stupidity. That being said, we need to make certain Israel is secure. With the present cadre of Israel-haters in the Administration, and with the “democratic” revolutions taking place in the Middle East (being assisted, no doubt, by those dunderheads in the White House), the ONLY free state in that region is facing extermination. Stay tuned, things will most likely become hot quite soon. Iran is pressing for dominance in that region, and will soon cause much more trouble. We need to stand with our few friends, and oppose our enemies.
    The United Nations is an expense we should also rid our selves of, as it is another example of the U.S. paying for an organization which opposes us at nearly every turn, and which clearly has values antithetical to our own.

  • http://none Shadyman

    The budget for all foreign aid should start at zero. Then let a house committee take testimony on why we should give money away to terrorist countries. Have an administration official explain where the Billions to Haiti went, and why it’s not getting to the needy.
    (Keep in mind all the millions in charitable giving.)

    This is zero-based budgeting, and would replace the practice of “last year’s spending plus 10%.”

    • meteorlady

      I think we have no right to give any money to a sovereign country. It’s like a business, if they fail it’s because their leadership is bad and needs to be replaced. Let the citizens of the country fight for their rights and freedoms. They would value them more and we would probably see a lot less of the really awful world dictators that we do today.

      • DaveH

        I’m with you 100% on that, meteorlady. Supporting people or countries just enables them to continue doing the wrong-headed things that got them in trouble in the first place.

        • Thamera

          Agreed, 100% And note to BobW. I hope you had the chance to read my response to your comment that you think that I think that our quality of life should be lowered to that of someone living in El Salvador. You mis-understand me completely and if you have read any other thing that I have posted how could you possibly make that inference?!?

        • Carlucci

          I’ve always wondered how many countries would come to our rescue in the event of disaster. The only one that I can think of lately was Norway, who volunteered to come and help clean up the Gulf after the BP explosion. I believe the Odumbo administration nixed that idea.

          • JC

            Carlucci…where do you think those inflatable levies came from after Katrina? (Hint, North of us);)

  • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Randy 131

    I would suggest that you send this article to those Senators who are against Senator Paul’s proposed new foreign policy objectives in the matter of foreign aide. You are preaching to the choir as far as those who subscribe to your web-site are concerned. But the intentions for the aide should not even be considered when you don’t have it and have to borrow it to give out. We need someone to give us aide in order to stop the deficits, balance the budget, and reduce the national debt. You might put out feelers to find someone who might help assist us by giving us foreign aide, because of the insanity of our politicians, we really need it.

    • DaveH

      I’m with you on stopping the aid, but I must say that this country is in trouble for one reason only — our Leviathan Government.
      Our Governments (local and Federal) now spend 40% of our GDP. In the 1950s, they spent only 20% (still too much). I lived through the 50s. I can tell you from personal experience that things weren’t any worse then than they are now. In fact, I think the people were generally more cordial and respectful of others then than they are now.
      Leaders look out for themselves. The citizens need to wake up to that fact.

      • Barbara

        Basic common sense. When I have no money, I don’t borrow to spend. I do without until I can afford to spend. I agree that the 50′s were a more civil era. Kids used to sleep outside under a tree. We rarely locked our doors. We could depend on our neighbors to watch out for us and our kids. As we watched out for them and theirs.

        I just do not understand why anyone would want to give to people who are determined to destroy us. It is incredibly stupid. And to borrow to do it is insane.

        Foreign aid should be eliminated, completely. The allegedly “United” Nations is a gaping hole in our national security. We definitely should get out of it. And if we threw them out of our country, it would be wonderful. We would no longer have to watch criminals thumb their noses at our laws and claim “diplomatic immunity”. It would also eliminate another drain on our resources. We are expected to support them.

        As far as Israel is concerned, I am not worried about them. They have demonstrated their ability to support themselves and to defend themselves. The nation has been reestablished and will not be destroyed. We need to stop interfering with them. They are a staunch ally and totally trustworthy. Would that our government were. The only “aid” they need is a continuation of arms trade. And it is the only nation I would be willing to see our military stand beside.

        • Duffy

          I agree with Barbara 100%. In addition, it seems that many citizens do not realize our Country is in deep trouble and it is time that we
          wake up to reality. “united we stand,divided we fall” Let us pray that
          our politicians and the current less than desirable administration make appropriate decisions to save our Beloved Country,our economy,
          our morality,our values and our freedom.

          Agreed Got a well-thought out post.

    • meteorlady

      The liberal rats are fighting hard to keep their place at the money trough. They will do and say anything – even lie profusely – to keep the American public on their side. The sad thing is that a lot of people believe the drivel that they spew.

      • DaveH

        That’s because they want to believe the lies. When people are allowed to ride on unwilling donors’ backs, they won’t give up that assistance easily.

  • JC

    Paul went on to declare that he has “a lot of sympathy and respect for Israel, as a democratic nation, as a fountain of peace and a fountain of democracy within the Middle East. But at the same time, I don’t [believe in] funding both sides of the arms race, particularly when we have to borrow money from China to send it to someone else. We just can’t do it anymore.”

    Anyone who could disagree with that statement on any level, is a complete ass.

  • terry

    We elected members of the Tea Party to put this Country on the right track. It is not surprising that when they begin to, those in the wrong try to push to distort. I totally agree with Rand. I hope he will also be vocal about the sending of US troops anywhere else in the world to lose their lives for countries who would blow us to bits in a heartbeat if they had the weapon.

  • Larry and Beth

    Support Isreal ? Maybe? Support the Theiving Zionists? NO! Isreal has been a leech on the US far to long. Isreal is not our friend. They spy on us, they have attacked us, and the constant cry of theirs! “Woe is us” why is everyone picking on us” is getting worn out. Sure they are GODS people, They Said So..So let tis god of theirs provide what they need to kill and mame people with.

    • Thamera

      Larry and Beth why don’t the two of you knock your heads together. I know people from Israel personally and your assessment of their situation couldn’t be further off track. They are some of the most fearless, independent and giving people I have known. They are not the ones crying “woe is me” even though they ARE constantly under attack!

      • Bitter Libertarian

        I dont believe thats a realistic statement Israel = Good. The Isrealites are absolutely Gods Chosen people, but who is to say except God who exactly that lives in Israel is one of those people? I do not believe that just because someone lives in Isreal they are automatically good. Thats too simple of a notion, and dont you believe in evil? Dont you think that Satan would have a few of his agents in Israel??? Kinda Obvious thats EXACTLY where I would have agents to do my works! NOT saying Isreal is Evil either, but you cant blindly support any nations Goverment without realizing they too are subject to the same corruption & evil our own goverment is!~
        Support the people yes…support another goverment???? Insane…Tell me where it says the Israel Goverment is mentioned in the bible…its NOT and not blow smoke at me with the jibbirish that every person who claims to be Jewish is…

    • Lewis Munn

      I cannot think of an unprovoked attack they made, in my adult lifetime anyhow, and I have see lots of support from them. They can even give us lessons in security, IF our liberals will listen.

      People have been jew-haters from way way back though, and never seem to get over it! Even if they have no real reason. Mostly envy that the jews succeed! Even though persecuted.

      Jews have been persecuted through history, and still have survived and done well.

      Why do people continue to persecute the Jews, to their own hurt? Even over here today? History shows that the jews get right back up again after what seems knockout blows, and do well.

      Perhaps there is something we can learn from them?? If we are willing?

      Seems to me if evil men like Hitler hated the jews, they must be doing some things right!!

    We should definitely quit foreign aid. It’s so we can hold something over the country when we need a vote in the UN or a treaty signed, or whatever. It’s just another waste of taxpayer money and it needs to stop. As for Israel, well I think they might be happy also.

  • Doug Rodrigues

    Get rid of all foreign aid. The money always has a tendency to end up in Swiss Bank Accounts.

  • Les

    The devil is in the details. Foreign aid is not that foreign. We give money to countries with the stipulation the the money gets spent buying US weapons systems. This is the best white collar welfare scheme on the planet. Stop all foreign aid, stop trying to buy your friends. Also stop the evil Clowns In Action.

    I like the statement where the writer believes funding Israel is why we are being attacked by Islam. Islam means subjugation, it does not mean peace. They will continue to attack until they control everything. Then they will attack each other, such is the true nature of Islam.

    I believe what those Democratic Senators were impling was, since Rand mentioned stop feeding our enemies monies in order not to Hate us, and since they are doing it (HATING) anyway, THEY wanted to include Isreal, NOT Rand Paul, in which Rand had a great idea. We need to STOP ALL Aid to all nations with the exception of our good friend Isreal. As a matter of fact, with all the turmoil going on in unruly nations of the middle east, and Africa, Again,in which Hates Isreal, and America, more so than the last dictators, we need to step up our giving to Isreal which will need it more so, since there are now new dictators whom hate Isreal More than the last, And since that was thier whole reason for them taking over those already unruly nations, for the sole purpose of being on the same page as Iran, (Thier Real Boss)to help usher in thier god (satan) the mahti, (not sure of the spelling), now with that change will produce more unruliness in the world.

  • bobseeks

    The scumocrats lie machine is being operated at full speed in order to hide the truth of the conservative message. They have to lie because there is no truth in the sick and twisted liberal belief system to use against the conservatives. The propaganda arm of the scumocrats (aka the media) needs to be investigated for its collusion with the scumocrats in perpetuating the lies of the lying lieberals. Freedom of the press no longer is an issue when the “press” is captive to those who wish to control us and is actively aiding in spreading lieberal propaganda.

    Israel can take care of herself. Enough is enough. US politicians better reign-in their spending and Pay-as-we-go. While the US sends billions over seas as “aid,” tent cities are popping-up all over the US. Americans own guns to defend themselves and to keep government in line. That was what our fore fathers wanted. We have idiots working in Washington, plain and simple. They go round and round over trying to cut 60 billion from the budget while the Federal Reserve pumps that much every week into the stock market (POMO). Wake up people. Bernie Maddof is a sheep compared to what is going on in Washington.

I hope they haven’t figured out that people are waking up and recognizing just what the Dems/left are doing through their propaganda networks…it’s old and stale and American’s are just sick of the political rodeo in DC. That’s why there were major changes in the mid term election and why there will be some major changes in 2012. Even if Democrats turn their political fortunes around, they’re still likely to lose seats in the Senate and will be hard-pressed to make inroads in the House. The Democrats are playing defense.

          The thing is, Angel, that there are a large portion of people who are receiving more from government than they pay for. Amongst that group, it takes a wise and/or moral person to vote against the aid.
          And from what I’ve seen on Stossel specials, the college youth have been heavily propagandized.

  • James

    I side with those who favor abolishing all foreign aid. There is no provision in the U.S. Constitution that allows Congress to tax Americans then give that money to foreigners. Back in FDR’s day, the Supreme Court struck down his Agricultural Adjustment Act because it taxed food processors for the benefit of farmers. The High Court held that Congress lacks the power to tax one group for the benefit of another.
    Our foreign aid to Israel is now almost $3 billion annually; to Egypt is almost $2 billion annually, etc., etc.

    I would make sure to support Israel is some way. This could be done privately rather than via the government.

    Why?

    Genesis 12:3 “And I will bless them that bless thee and curse him that curseth thee; and in thee shall all nations of the earth be blessed.” Point: God has promised to bless the man or nation that blesses the Chosen People. History has proven beyond reasonable doubt that the nations that have blessed the Jewish people have had the blessing of God; the nations that have cursed the Jewish people have experienced the curse of God.

    I don’t want to be on God’s bad side!

    • DaveH

      You’re right, Ken, it can be done privately, and it should be done privately.
      No group of people (no matter how large) should be allowed to donate other peoples’ money against their will.

      I agree. History supports this, but most leftists avoid history, and religion, to the dismay of all of us in the long run.

    • James

      Ken, I agree but you’ve misidentified the chosen people. Arthur Koestler’s book “The Thirteenth Tribe” thoroughly documents that the Jews of today are not the descendents of the biblical Israelites. Around 600 AD the whole nation of Khazaria converted to Judaism but that didn’t make them Israelites. Biblically, Israelites are the pure-blood racial descendents of Abraham through his son Isaac and Isaac’s son Jacob/Israel. See Romans 9:1-13.

  • Harold Olsen

    Even if it were true, the left has no right to criticize someone who wants to cut aid to Israel. The left, from Obama on down are anti-Israel. And, I would include Joe Lieberman as well.

    Well this does not surprise me that these Democrat Senators to do such a thing which is completely in their dialogue to spread such distorted lies about Rand Paul. I saw the interview and he did not single out Israel, in fact, he stated specifically that he supported Israel as one of the United States greatest allies, and they they have been. Yes the Democrats are indeed the Democrats are in the attack mode and smearing their tactics and distorting the truth. Rand Paul has the guts enough to stand up like a man and defend the US Constitution and our interests, by the way, last November’s election through out a lot of moderate Democrats and left the ultra liberals in power–that is until their time is up in the next elections, which will in turn throw them out, along with this clown we call our president–a despicable disgrace to humanity–needless to say, dare call him a president. Until such time we bare the brunt for the sin of having these socialists in office and hopefully America has learned her lesson to be more responsible about the leaders she chooses. Voting does make a difference and who you vote for makes even a greater difference–time to let your voices be heard–Join the Tea Party.

  • John T. Sewell

    Dear Sirs: From what I see, Senator Paul is the only Republican that has a back bone and will make a stand, like it or not. I agree will Senator Paul, when we send millions and millions of dollars to a contry, it is to buy them off and get them to do it our way not the right way. It would be the way of this Administration and we all as Americans knows that is the WRONG way. We also need to get out of the UN and get the UN out of the USA-send them packing. I would support Senator Rand Paul for President in 2012, I beleive he would be just what we as Americans are looking for. We can not elect a seasoned polititian (like most of them are) to the White House in 2012. If we do, then you will have politics as they always have been. It is going to take new and young blood to get in there and do 50% of what they said they would. The old timers that need to go home for good, will be send back, not to work with the new comers but to block them in anyway from doing what is right. Washington DC needs to be cleaned out with 2 terms limits, President’s salary to be cut in half and all Senatores and Representatives to be cut by a Third. While our elected officials are in office, they would not be able to charge for a speaking engagements or make any other monies besides their salary, after they get out, then they are no longer a public representative. I could go on and on, about how to cut costs and it has to start with our elected officials first, but I will stop for now. What a ticket–Rand Paul, President/Sara Palin, Vice President. I would also support the same ticket with it reversed. Come on America as I call on each and everyone of you. This is our country, no matter who you are and the color of your skin, if you are an American, born or become one after the required time and duties, then we need to come togther and get this Muslim out of office.

    After reading your article I am now on the fence and the only thing you get from riding the fence is a sore crotch.

    With the quote from Mr. Yuval Levin and the fact that many Isrealies don ot want the aid I think I would now side with Sen Pau.

    We can always make it perfectly clear to Israel’s neighbors that we will MILITARILY back our ally Israel whenever it might become necessary. And ALL options would be on the table.

      And if we support Israel, we have to equally support Egypt according to the Camp David Peace Accord. And if we are supporting one Arab nation, won’t the others cry foul? So to support Israel and protect them from their neighbors…we must in all fairness support their neighbors as well…and the insane little hamster wheel goes round and round and round…

        • Allen in reality

          Mick,

          I really think you are onto something. Let us get together and
          solve the world’s problems (biggest anyway) right now!

          1) problem: middle east is a hate pit!!! Arabs hate Jews an vice versa.

          Solution: Move all the Israelis to the us. Yes! Prime real estate
          Over 2000 miles of the US and Mexican border! They can have a 5
          mile wide x 2000 mile strip of prime land similar to their own
          environment. They can bring the wailing wall and all the land-
          marks with them and all they need to do is employ their IDF to
          secure that border, that’s all. (New Israel?)

          2) Illegal immigration:

          Solution: see problem one. You see, Arabs and Jews are separated
          and Mexicans have to migrate legally again. Kewl? No? Too Easy?

          3) Economic recovery slow High unwmployment

          solution: see problem 1…reduced crime rate, new jobs rebuilding
          the new wall, cities, and manufacturing /agriculture will swell
          in the US once again. Citizens will have new job opportunity and
          a smaller tax burden on them.

          One more thing off-topic

          Did you notice that the majority of the tax burden comes from
          the nation’s conservative middle class?

          And the vast majority of tax recipients come from………?

  • Harry Buttle

    Foreign aid is less than 1% of the budget, about a third of the cost of the war in Afghanistan, about a quarter of what the financial firms involved in the 2008 financial collapse paid out in employee bonuses. There is nothing in the US Constitution that allows taxing the middle class and giving the money to the only people in America who don’t need it. By far, the two countries that receive the most foreign aid from the US are Iraq and Afghanistan.

    I am in agreement with Rep Paul. Charity begins at home. If we don’t start taking care of ourselves, we’ll have nothing to give soon. We cannot help others if we need help ourselves. In addition, if we do not have the money in the first place, why would we borrow money to give to others? Confusing!

  • Bob

    As others have indicated there is nothing wrong with individuals supporting Israel on their own. The problem is, our malignant, tax-sucking government steals too much from us to leave us with enough discretionary income to help those who deserve help. If I didn’t have to help support welfare parasites, government parasites, and corporate parasites, I would have more money to spend on worthy causes. Let’s strip all levels of government down to the bare essentials and allow people to give to those truly in need rather than the unproductive who have been trained to steal from the productive.

THERE ARE MINERALS AND OTHER NATURAL RESOURCES,AND AGRICULTAURAL RESOURCES ACROSS THE SCOPE OF THE WHOLE PLANET.ARE THE PEOPLE SO STUPID AND LAZY THAT THEY CAN’T OR WON’T WORK FOR THEIR OWN SURVIVAL? ARE THEY ALL WAITING FOR THE SUCKERS IN AMERICA TO PROVIDE THE NECESSITIES OF LIFE AND DROP THE FOOD IN THEIR MOUTHS? NO WHERE IS IT WRITTEN THAT WE ARE TO SUPPORT ANY ONE ELSE EXCEPT OUR OWN FAMILIES. CHRISTIANS AND JEWS DON’T JUMP OUT OF YOUR SKINS IN ANGER BECAUSE YOU DON’T KNOW YOUR RESPECTIVE BIBLES. HELP FOR SOMEONE IS A ONE TIME DEAL. YOU ARE NOT TO BE SO STUPID AND DELIBERATELY ALLOW A HUMAN PARASITE TO MAKE A LIVING OFF YOU AND LEAVE YOU BARELY ALIVE. ANY ADULT HUMAN AND THE OFFSPRING THEY SPAWN, IF THEY WANT TO EAT HAVE TO WORK. AS FOR ALL YOU SOFT HEARTED AND SOFT HEADED TOUCHY FEALING IDIOTS, WHEN IS IT CRUEL TO BE KIND? IT IS NOT ENOUGH THAT YOU WANT TO “HELP” THE PARASITES YOURSELVES BUT USE THE GOVERNMENT TO FORCE OTHER PEOPLE TO “HELP” THE PARASITES.

    • Bob

      You are right – The Bible teaches self-reliance and charity only when the person is crippled, widowed, or orphaned. Sloth is soundly condemned in the Bible. There are no instances in the New Testament indicating that Jesus advocated welfare. There was welfare in Israel at the time of Christ though, it was instituted by the evil King Herod to gain support amongst the useless just as it is used by the scumocrats to gain support from the useless today.

      • Nadzieja Batki

        You are still wrong. The crippled, widowed or the orphaned if they wanted to eat had to work. Why would they be exempt from work? Who gave them the right to become parasites? Definetely not a right given by God. The fields and orchards,etc. were not to be completely harvested so the “poor and needy” would go and glean the remains and either use for themselves or sell or barter.

    • Thamera

      Batki: It is cruel to be kind when, as you say, we support those who will not support themselves. It’s hard to read with all caps, but you make a very good point. On a most personal level, I learned that lesson through my own daughter who nearly bankrupt me because of her association with the underworld of drugs and addiction. I had to finally learn to “let go” and withdraw financially. (note, financially not emotionally) I thought it would kill me. I was desperate not to have my daughter suffer and yet by continuing to supply her with “financial aide” I was only enabling her and making the situation much worse. In the end, I cut off all “financial aide” and had to let her make the decision to “sink” or “swim”. I thought it might kill me to watch her struggle and suffer. I learned the difference quite well between “enabling” and “empowering”. As a government we are no different, only I don’t think that our government knows the difference between enabling and empowering and so we as a nation continue to struggle and will eventually drown.

            And you have no idea how to define welfare.
            But you “feel” that my wallet should be wide open to “be my brother’s keeper”. Apparently even at the expense of my own family’s welfare.
            A policy which would soon put us all on welfare…which of my brother’s will be looking after my welfare once we’re all on welfare?

            Because that is the end result of all socialist policies.
            And that is why I hold Liberals in contempt, they are unable to form complete thoughts but feel they should have control of my life?

  • LiarsMustBeDefeated

    I agree with this piece by Chip Wood. I did not like Gary Bauer’s knee-jerk reaction to Rand Paul’s effort. Israel would greatly benefit if ALL foreign aid were immediately terminated. It is very easy to imagine the 5X amount of money going to Israel’s enemies. To top it off, it only serves the purposes of the power elite when we sponsor both sides of a conflict. EVERY ONE of the wars we are in immoral.

    • Carlucci

      Gary Bauer is a mealy mouthed ignorant jerk and a big fat RINO. He badmouths the Drs. Paul every chance he gets. He is your typical status quo politico mouthpiece, and a major Bush brown-noser.

      Personally I think lots of people in the district of criminals are scared of the Drs. Paul, because their ideas are so anti-status quo politics as usual. I just wish we could clone both of the good doctors.

    While it might have been arguable that some of our foreign aid, during the Cold War was actually a Defense appropriation, there can be little justification for foreign aid, in general. Like the idiotic oxymoron “dual citizenship, it confuses the basic issue of what are the duties of our government to our people, etc.. The smear attack on a Senator who opposes foreign aid, shows the inability of those who support it, to actually argue a reasoned case. Calling opponents names, like “anti-semitic” is typical of how the Left in America has operated for the past two generations.

    Much of the aid that we pay to Egypt & Israel appears to be a continuation of the bribe which President Carter promised for the two neighbors finally concluding a peace agreement in 1979. But why should the American taxpayers have to bribe two nations to enter into an agreement which is manifestly in both their interests? Congress, some years ago, made it illegal for American Corporations to bribe foreign officials to promote their corporate interests. Is it too naive to suggest that what Congress bans for others, Congress should not allow for itself?

IT’S ALSO TRUE THAT AS LONG AS WE CONTINUE TO FUND BOTH SIDES OF THE CONFLICT, WE’RE THE ONLY ONES WHO REALLY LOSE ANYTHING. SO WHY CONTINUE TO PISS AWAY MONEY WE DON’T HAVE IN A CONFLICT THAT WILL NEVER END UNTIL WE BUTT OUT ? ONE WILL WIN, ONE WILL LOSE. IT’S TIME TO LET THE END GAME PLAY OUT WITHOUT US STICKING OUR NOSES IN IT. WHOEVER WINS OR WHOEVER LOSES, SOMEBODY’S GONNA HATE US ANYHOW. SO WHAT POSSIBLE DIFFERENCE COULD IT MAKE EITHER WAY ? THE SMART THING TO DO IS TO BACK OUT & LET ‘EM FIGHT IT OUT AMONGST THEMSELVES WITHOUT ANY INTERVENTION FROM US WHATSOEVER. HUMANITARIAN AID ? B.S. !!! IF IT KEEPS GOING THE WAY IT IS NOW, WE’RE THE ONES WHO ARE GOING TO NEED IT MOST. BUT TRUST ME ON THIS, Mel – IF RON PAUL CHOOSES TO RUN, HE WILL WIN HANDS DOWN IN A LANDSLIDE. AND THAT, MY DEAR MISGUIDED FRIEND, IS THE ABSOLUTE BEST POSSIBLE OUTCOME FOR THIS COUNTRY AT THIS POINT OR ANY OTHER.

    “The money power preys upon the Nation in times of peace, and conspires against it in times of adversity. It is more despotic than monarchy, more insolent that autocracy, more selfish than bureaucracy. It denounces, as public enemies, all who question its methods or throw light upon its crimes.” “The Government should create, issue and circulate all the money and currency needed to satisfy the spending power of the Government and the buying power of the Consumers.” (Shortly before his assassination): “I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to trouble for the safety of my Country; corporations have been enthroned, an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the Country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the People, until the wealth is aggregated in a few hands, and the Republic is destroyed.”

          The Fearless Few Are Hated

          Their greatest hatred, their most vicious spewing of venom, is reserved for the fearless few who dare to reveal to the world the heinous crimes committed by the Jewish Power in the Communist Gulag, especially the Zionist murder of 66 million men, women, and children, many of them Bible-believing Christians.

          Equally hated are men like Ernst Zundel of Canada, who have questioned whether six million Jews actually died in a Nazi Holocaust. But even if six million died in a Nazi Holocaust, what of the sixty-six million who perished in the Jewish Gulag? And remember: Thousands of Nazis have been tracked down and punished for their reported crimes against humanity. Why is it that not even one Zionist Jew has ever been brought to justice for the heinous crimes committed in the Jewish Communist Gulag? Why?

          For almost six decades, America and the planet have been preaching to the Germans, reminding them of the terrible crimes of their Nazi ancestors. It is only fair and just that we all now turn our attention to the Communist Gulag Holocaust, that we expose the Jews’ role in its monstrous crimes and remind the Jews of what their criminal ancestors did to these sixty-six million innocent victims, most of whom were Christians.

          Isn’t it also time we demand construction of a Christian Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C., to be erected next door to the existing taxpayer-funded Jewish Holocaust Museum? Is only the suffering of Jews worthy of being memorialized? What about the pain and suffering endured by so many other ethnic and religious groups, including that of Russian and Eastern European Christians during the Jewish Bolshevik era? Don’t these tens of millions of Gentiles killed and tortured deserve to be remembered as well?

            Well, sonny, your adherance to that wacked out delusional conspiracy idiot Tex Marrs explains a lot of your postings.

            Denial of the Holocaust alone categorizes anyone as wacked out. You see, my child, the Nazis condemned themselves by documenting so thoroughly all the horrors they visited upon the Jews that the evidence is not just compelling, it’s voluminous and detailed. Soviet records released after the fall of the USSR have only confirmed and added to the overwhelming evidence of German culpability.

            I’ve been to Dachau, I’ve seen the documentary evidence, I’ve seen the ovens in which they were cremated and showers built to gas them. Eyewitness evidence by the thousands has been furnished over time by US servicemen who liberated the camps, former SS guards and the German people themselves.

            Even the anti-Semitic James Karalis lauds the horrific efforts of the Nazis to wipe out a race of people.

            No, my idiot urchen, the Holocaust was very real.

            JC, coal miner says he is an IWW man, commonly referred to as a “Wobbly”. Wobblies … took their basic concepts from others: from Marx the concepts of labor value, commodity value, surplus value, and class struggle; from Darwin the idea of organic evolution and the struggle for survival as a paradigm for social evolution and the survival of the fittest class; from Bakunin and the anarchists the “propaganda of the deed”* and the idea of direct action; and from Sorel the notion of the “militant minority.” Hence, IWW beliefs became a peculiar amalgam of Marxism and Darwinism, anarchism and syndicalism — all overlaid with a singularly American patina.

            The IWW was formed by militant unionists, socialists, anarchists, and other labor radicals who believed that the great mass of workers are exploited by, and are in an economic struggle with, an employing class.

            Vigilant and JoeH, my good friend and step father is Polish and was taken by the Nazi’s from his family in Warsaw in 1943 to a work camp in Norway where he spent the rest of the war. He never openly talked about the experience but after he had a few vodkas with his Polish buddie I’d sit and listen to them talk about the “old days” in Poland during the war. All of his teeth have been replaced, knocked out by the Nazi’s. He was about 5’5″ tall and tough as nails, could intimidate people a foot taller and half his age, just because what he went through and saw was far worse that what any bully could have done to him. He survived the war for two reasons I think, he wasn’t Jewish and he was extremely resourceful.

  • WoodPecker

    Cut aids to Israel and the surrounding countries! Israel only brings us trouble — in money and blood. Most of our aid money goes to Israel and the surrounding Arab countries(to buy peace); everything concerns with that wicked Israel. But the arab masses don’t think like their dictators regarding Israel. We should be free of Israel; so we can be free bombings, beheadings, etc. Then, let the Arabs do all that to Israel alone; if they still want to remain and occupy the Palestinians.

        I’m aware of the Israeli atrocity against the Palestinians before reading your timely link. Israel’s criminal actions against the Palestinians are no less than the apatheid regime in past South Africa; in fact, the sordid Jews learnt and copied from them. Presisent Carter said it all; and the Jews here tried their best to demonize and discredit him; but the many Americans believed him — he spoke the truth! Don’t depend on the mainstream media to report on the Israeli atrocities; you rarely if ever heard of it. But the internet has plenty videos posted by honest Americans for the world to see — on Israel’s war-criminal atrocities against the Palestinians.

    The MOST important consideration in our relationship with Israel is that their armed forces murdered our sailors on the USS Liberty.

  • Delores Smith

    CHIP WOOD – FIRST TIME I HAVE DISAGREED WITH YOU…
    Rand Paul’s suggestion about reducing foreign aid is moot in view of what is going on in northern African and the Mideast. Obama gave a speech in Egypt, inviting Muslim Brotherhood to attend, and they attended. Obama overthrew the leader of Egypt with 30% of MB in the Square,stirring up protesters. Obama started an illegal war in Libya where Al-Qaeda is the Opposition. Sen.Lieberman calls them Freedom Fighters. Every country in the Mideast & Libya that has protesters has MB stirring up the people. Obama lies when he tells us that “the people have spoken.” This is orchestrated.
    MB is now a part of the new Egyptian government. Obama and MB’s goal is to get MB’s in the governments of the Mideast, shove Israel out to sea,and begin “The New World Order”. Libya may be a ploy. If the leader of Libya takes a bullet, he is being silenced for what he knows about the goals that he, Obama, Louis F. and Rev. Wright have had when they were all friends.
    Chip, this illegal war needs to be stopped. With NATO taking over, we still would pick up a big tab. When we shot 164 missiles into Libya, it cost $250,000 (at least) Stop foreign aid to all countries, EXCEPT Israel. They are under attack by Obama and MB.
    I respect Israel.

Because it supplies the us with mission critical ontelligeence, computer software and military physical technologies sepecial avioonics, Its has helped the kurds with expertise needed to remian indepent and secure. It has absorbbed a polyglot group of people Over the years the number have been been amazing from the arab counties , ethiopia , soviet union , from concentration camps who wee not welcome in the counties of teir birth as well as many wh went as volunteers. In between the wars with its neighers the arabs have wage a war of attrion. Even after total war they still waste theirresources on rockets and mortos. I believe a ttoal war in Gaza in which at least 100, 000 are killed , the arab madness will continue . It began in the 1920.s and has not stopped , the truth is that , the arabs came to Palistine becaues the Jews had come and were aftive making work for them as they funded infrastruct, lie the City of Telavie The Hamas are on the pathe to their violent demise ARAFAT WAS BORN IN Egypt.

We had a little girl here that took her pilgrimage to Isriael last year and I couldn’t have worried about her more if she had been my own child! Her father has plowed our drive a few times during the winter and has never charged us and they have transported our daughter to school functions with their daughter when we have been unable. We have done the same for them. The daughter has even texted me out of the blue and wished me a Merry christmas and a happy Veterans day. ( the latter even when my own children forgot!)
            Another friend of ours that is Jewish was my wifes “Girl Friday” at our wedding in a Methodist church, I might add! We think the world of her and wouldn’t want to consider our lives without any of these people!!

    Cutting foreign aid is not the place to start. Rand Paul should be looking in other places to cut.Foreign aid is a small percentage of the money going out. In many cases our national security is dependent on foreign aid. Mr Paul is an idiot for even suggesting it. The government is stealing from the poor and giving it to the rich. Medicare and Medicaid have been cut. No cost of living for Medicare. Social Security claims there has been no rise in the cost of living for the last three years. This is an outright lie. Obama extended tax`cuts for the rich which he said he would not do. This is just as bad as Bush’s “read my lips, no new taxes” another lie. The Government can get away with this because the poor do not have 100 million per year to pay for lobbyists. The middle class has been disappearing for a long time. Soon there will be just rich and poor.We are turning back into a feudal society.

  • Carlucci

    How is our national security dependent on foreign aid? Says who? When the Constitution was written, the federal government was only responsible for three things: 1. Coining the money 2. Preventing illegal immigration 3. Providing national security.

      Please excuse the intrusion, but which article was it in the ORIGINAL constitution that controlled illegal immigration?? At the time of our ORIGINAL constitution there was no such thing! We needed bodies to fill this great nation and to do the jobs that needed to be done, but now there are too many that do the jobs we need done and we need to stop the unregulated flow of illegals comming into this country daily, especially the uneducated ones!!

      • JC

        I agree Joe, good point.
        Today I think we’re dealing with this in more of a
        foreign invasion / border / sovereignty issue.
        The right to defend our homeland.

      • Carlucci

        Well, I was under the impression that the US govt. set up Ellis Island to handle foreign immigrants who were coming here legally. You are right, back then a bigger population was needed. But immigrants came here not expecting a handout and nobody was trying to force their religious beliefs on the American people.

        Now look at the problems in Europe. The governments of France, England, Holland, etc., welcomed the mooslims because they wanted to increase the tax base. Unfortunately those countries got far more than they bargained for, and I would imagine that lots of those immigrants are not paying taxes.

        • JC

          Exactly Carlucci. Whenever I hear a Lib saying things like “Our diversity is our sterngth” and things like that I always ask them how that’s working out in the new ghettos and “no go” zones of Europe.
          Or even more so…How did that diversity thing work out for Yugoslavia? Not so good…

  • pete

    I would be ending GOVERNMENT FOREIGN AID to all these countries (including Israel) but I fear that our GOVERNMENT would make PRIVATE AID to ISRAEl to be illegal ….

    I would only support stopping all foreign aid if (and only if) their is NO RESTRICTIONS in PRIVATE AID/CONTRIBUTIONS to ISRAEL ….

    That means if I’m wealthy I can BUY Israel 20 DOLPHIN ATTACK SUBMARINES and it’s LEGAL with the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT !!! OR I CAN FINANCE ISRAEL’S DEVELOPMENT of the LAVI !!! AND THEN FINANCE 350 LAVI JET FIGHTERS for PRODUCTION ….

    You got to understand, what Rand Paul is recommending is good if and only if the RIGHT to giving PRIVATE AID to ISRAEl is insured. That includes even during a UN security council vote against ISRAEL.

    That’s my opinion – the armchair general – and remember we have nothing to fear but … FEAR ITSELF !!

    • JC

      And that is exactly how it should be. No Federally mandated (stolen) foreign aid. But individual choices with an individual’s own money are none of the governments business.

      If you didn’t know it, that is a core Libertarian belief.

    • Nadzieja Batki

      No one is saying to stop sending private funds to help Israel, and that is as it should be. Our government has no authority to take our taxes and send foreign aid to any country on the planet.
      It is amazing how people hear what they want to hear. Rand Paul is correct, we have to stop foreign aid. We cannot afford to support other nations. Our nation appears to be needing foreign aid but I haven’t been hearing that all the nations that we supported are sending all the money back to us.

I am sick of the smear campaign both parties are promoting on each other. America doesn’t have time to listen of even think about their hateful diatribe.

    Foreign aid is like handing out free crack to drug addicts with the intent of curing them. Pure and total idiocy! That same policy is about to embroil us in a 3rd major war in the middle east. Todays biggest war mongers are the same people who ran and hid, burned their drft cards or like Bill Clinton in December 1969 burned the American flag in Oslow. It is time to end the madness, bring our troops home and end all foreign aid to everyone. In the end our actions will far out weigh our money.

    Rand Paul is right. I’ve been to Israel many times and Tel Aviv is way lots better than Los Angeles. Charity begins at home….let’s take care of our own first. this borrowing money to give it away to these countries is a crock of s__t. They hate us but they’ll take our money and help…let them stand on their own two feet. The tax payer is tired of all this giving. At least Rand Paul has the balls to speak up. He should be president instead of that FAKE HAWAIIAN who is really a POPOLO that is destroying our country.

  • Don

    Paul’s point that we are giving money to other countries that we have to borrow from China is well taken.

    This has little to do with the reason for the negative reaction by the Senators who jumped on Paul for his statement. For the most part, these Senators have large numbers of Jewish voters among their constituents. So, their purpose is to appeal to these voters. They would likely attack anyone who suggested cutting off US support to Israel.

    It all boils down to getting financial support and getting out the vote in the next election. So there is no big mystery as to why Paul has been attacked. As Tip O’Neill famously remarked: “All politics is local”.

    I have been reading these comments from a diverse bunch of people and some stand out as inteligent and some are just misguided idiots.and some are smart a$$ know it alls and these seem to be mostly liberals.One way to turn a friend aginst you is loan him some money.the best way to help some one is to buy some thing they have.It doesn’t have to be materal you can have them do some work for you that you need done.If you loan them money and they can’t pay you back then they will start to avoid you and then resent you.Has any one ever raised hogs, you can make pets out of them but start hand feeding them and if you don’t feed them they will start to bite you to get you to feed them.that is what will happen with these government created intitlement minded people.If they don’t get their goodies then they will start stealing and you will have to fight them.put them to work give them a job so they can feelgood about themself.If they want work then give a boot.If they cant work because of mental or physical defect then they need help and then need to be given chairty.Stop all foreign aid and forced domestic aid give these people a chance to make a lif of their own.Most of these people that are on these give aways are just milking the system and it needs to dry up a little bit.

    It’s been a long time since I read so much lies and JEWISH propaganda in one go.It will take few days to ventilate my office before I will be free from the stench.
    I don’t know the author of this pro-Jewish and pro-Israel propaganda but I do refuse to be polluted with such garbage.

    It looks that someone invented this…”RAND Paul ‘ to confuse people and leave the impression that RON Paul is the author of those blatant lies.
    Here is what I read:

    “In his actual statement, which the mainstream media pretend does not exist, Paul pointed out that the U.S. sends four times more aid to Israel’s enemies than we do to that poor beleaguered country.”

    ” Israel has become such a technological and agricultural phenomenon that its citizens enjoy one of the highest per capita incomes in the world. Sure, some of the oil-rich countries have more wealth. But almost all of their money is concentrated in the hands of a few ruling sheiks and their families. The average male in most Muslim countries lives in abject poverty, no matter how many billions his rulers have. And the average female is even worse off.”

    “Israel, on the other hand, is one of the most egalitarian countries in the world. Even the Muslims who live there enjoy more rights than in any of the Arab states that surround Israel.”

    “He then continued, “When you send foreign aid, you actually send quite a bit to Israel’s enemies. Islamic nations around Israel get quite a bit of foreign aid, too. So really, you have to ask yourself, are we funding an arms race on both sides?”
    “Paul went on to declare that he has “a lot of sympathy and respect for Israel, as a democratic nation, as a fountain of peace and a fountain of democracy within the Middle East”

    “Can anyone with enough sense to come in out of the rain disagree with anything in that statement? ”

    (YES.I DO.-JERZY)

    “And let me mention another issue that is almost never addressed in the U.S. media but is of deep and abiding concern to many citizens in Israel. That is the economic and political blackmail their leaders must pay whenever U.S. leaders decide to throw their weight around.”

    “There is a “mentality of dependence” in Israel many Jews detest. Their leaders are too subservient to the United States, even when U.S. policy is harmful to their country.”


    Need proof? Our government forced Israel to accept the creation of the Palestinian Authority, which immediately became the captive of terrorists from Hamas and Fatah. But not only did we force them to accept it, we also demanded they stand meekly by while we used foreign aid to arm its members.

    Abu Yousef, a senior official of the Palestine Authority and an admitted terrorist, once boasted, “I do not think the operations of the Palestine resistance would have been so successful and would have killed more than 1,000 Israelis since 2000 and defeated Israel in Gaza” without such assistance from America.

    That’s sure something to be proud of, isn’t it? Our aid helped terrorists kill 1,000 Israelis. And yet six U.S. Senators try to smear Paul for trying to call a halt to such madness.”

    “I know many of my conservative colleagues disagree with me on this. Gary Bauer, a Washington analyst and activist I’ve admired for a long time, has staunchly defended American aid to Israel. In his daily blog, he argued, “The U.S. gives billions of dollars a year to foreign countries that hate us and regularly vote against us at the United Nations. But Israel votes with the U.S. 97% of the time. They are a loyal ally that shares our values. The aid they receive is used to buy military equipment from U.S. companies, so the money comes back to us.”

    “If all foreign aid to the Middle East were stopped, would’nt Israel be a lot better off? And besides, knowing how fanatical many Jews in the U.S. are about supporting Israel, don’t you think that their private contributions would more than make up for any loss of official government aid?”

    Mr.Chip…
    What you said is cheap.

    the lack of history and common sense is obviously lost on the teabaggers commenting here. First, this article is filled with so many lies and distortions I hardly no where to begin. I believe it is Israel who receives more aid than any country in the WORLD. Israelies live the high life, while arabs in their country and out are living in abject poverty. We give Israel F16′s and they have the nukes (which they lied about for decades). They fight with every neighbor around them, and threaten, starve and imprison the Palestinans on a daily basis. They used white phospherous on the Gazans for God sakes, they destroyed their schools, clinics, and even UN buildings and slaughtered 1400 mostly women and children. Palestinans are living in the biggest outdoor prison concentration camp in the world. The zionists in Israel are hated and despised by people around the world. Ask yourself why you support a nation that slaughtered 140 american sailors? Why they use Palestinan children as shields? Why they refuse to let any reporters or “outsiders” into gaza to see the hell they deliver to the Palestinans. Why in the 911 report where they forced to admit the US was hit on 91l because of our “sole” support for the zionists. How many of you know the difference between zionism and judaism. Do you know who Dov Zakeim is. He was the Treasurer for the Pentagon. On 9/10/0l Rumsfeld announced $3 trillion was missing from the Pentagon…Dov Zahkeim stole that money and took it to Israel. The majority of you know nothing about Palestine or Israel. Those Khazers Jews who came from Europe never stepped foot in Palestine. They were communists and after WW2, no country wanted them, not even UK or US. Why, because they cause trouble everywhere they go. Rand was right…we should stop funding countries that “use our treasury like their piggy bank”. AIPAC should be considered a “foreign entity” and therefore, unable to fund and buy off ANY congress or Senator. You are being lied to people again. Israel is not a friend of the US otherwise they wouldnt be spying on US here in our country, and wouldnt be treating other human beings like dogs…We support Israel in the UN against 190 other nations. Get some education before you spout your lies. Israel is not a friend of the US…get that.

    • Tom Anderson

      I agree. Any country which murders our sailors is, by definition, OUR ENEMY. I understand that the Israeli navy also machine gunned the USS LIBERTY’s life rafts while in the water – THAT is an International War Crime. LBJ and McNamara swept all of that under the carpet and the GOP and DEMOS were complicit. McCain’s Admiral Dad was a KEY player in that crime too – NO ONE brought that up during his presidential run.

      JFK did his very best to prevent transfer of nuke technology to Israel. Before JFK’s brains were washed off the Lincoln Continental, LBJ had Israel started on a massive Nuke development project. Do you get the idea??

      And we FUND the murderers of our US sailors??? Please explain THAT to me.

      • jim

        tom you have it right i know some one who was on that ship.and he said his country let him down it was the low point of his life and was told to keep his mouth shout or else.and LBJ could have stopped it.he is not very happy with america i think he has died but i can still see his face when he told me this story.

      • Carlucci

        Tom – it sounds like you may have read that book “Final Judgement” by Michael Collins Piper. It pretty much says the same thing – that Israel was behind the JFK assassination. David Ben Gurion, the PM to Israel at that time made no bones about hating Kennedy and his family.

        • Tom Anderson

          No I haven’t read that book.

          In 1968 I visited a youth hostel in Geneva, Switzerland and there was an Israeli tank crew staying the same room with me. I thought I was sharp – finishing The Calculaus series with Ord. Diff. Eqns. EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THOSE GUYS had done all that I had PLUS each had finished Complex Variables and Partial Diff Eqns. There are more brains in a single Israeli than there is in Bush’s or Obama’s entire cabinet.

          My point – the Israelis are a cunning, deceitful and formidable enemy – they proved that when they attacked the USS Liberty and got away with it. And, clearly, they have both the Pauls in their sights. I lay money that the Pauls don’t survive another 2 years – some sort of accident or strange disease is coming on them.

          I don’t know about them being involved in killing JFK. It seems to me that nearly every other entity wanted JFK dead – the CIA, the MAFIA, the Cubans, etc. But I am convinced that they facilitated 9/11 and knew when and where it was going to happen.

          The Israelis still CELEBRATE the bombing of the King David Hotel – they ARE the original terrorists! And they are murderers – unashamed murderers.

    • chuckb

      spktruth200, you are wrong about those so called khazar jews, they emigrated into the u.s. before and after ww2, they emigrated to israel after ww2, they were welcomed by the roosevelt admin. and truman. before ww2 they entered the u.s. illegally. somewhat like the latinos. you can trace some of barrys cabinet back to these same people. they found a home in the democratic party.

    I sent my letter to the Senator, but I know it will fall on deaf ears, because he is deaf and dumb too. So frustrating.

  • jopa

    Apparently Rand Paul has made more than one speech on this issue and I do remember him singling out Israel in one of them.He said Israel has one of the highest per capita incomes in the world and doesn’t need foreign aid or money from the US and I agree with him.If there is a country out there that can show us they are farther in debt than the US perhaps we can give them a little help and nobody else.Why should we give aid to someone better off than us, just so they will be nice to us because we give them money and flip us off if we don’t??

  • george

    It don’t matter U.S spends 338 Billion year I said Billion with

    If Obama (which I have heard has a stolen social security card
    and still has not shown his birth certificate) get re-elect and
    gets control of house with the senate will make all those illegal
    alien legal and that 338 billion will increase because Us tax payer

  • Eric Bischoff

    Although there is a smidgen of potentially good ideas every once in a while on this site, it doesn’t matter what the subject is, it always quickly turns into a moronic orgy diatribe filled with the usual clueless comments about God, Christianity, government is the enemy, lower taxes as the answer to everything and let’s not forget the ever present venemous blaming and accusing the left or liberal thinking or social democrat ideas as what’s wrong with the world or at least the U.S.

    When in reality the left has never governed and their ideas are not read, understood and mostly shunned. You have no point of reference to blame anything on the left. The furthest this country has ever been to the left is DEAD CENTER and most of the time as in even now it’s to the right of center.

    Most of you are completely unaware of what the left is or what it could do for the people and this country. So you continuously side with the right who work for corporations and the wealthy.

    I got news for you. Reagan put us on a path towards fascism and we are there now.

    I find a lot of you arrogant, ill informed, with no respect for anything or anyone that thinks differently than you.

    Why are you such cowards always afraid of entertaining ideas that are different from your limited thinking? Are you afraid you may learn something and you’ll feel bad that you stuck to the wrong principles for so long.

    So let’s review. The conservative right always governs, everything has turned to shit, and all you can think of is blaming the left and their ideas. Brilliant!

    You are living under Fascism, Government for Corporations by corporations.
    And you voted for it every step of the way. You have only yourselves to blame.
    Oh and let’s not forget the almost half of the country who never vote and still complain.

    And since this is about foreign aid, I agree it would be nice to spend our money at home. Unfortunately it’s not that simple since most U.S. Foreign Aid comes with a caveat that it be spent on American companies and products. We’ve been meddling in foreign affairs for too long and if we stop foreign aid now we will be faced with a bigger mess and a larger immigration problem. We’ve created a monster and we’re not having the right discussions or asking the right questions.

        Easy E, debating and argueing is pointless with you progressive/liberal/commies because your progressivism is like a religion. The progressive/liberal breathes, eats, and sleeps in their godless ideology. No one can win an argument against an ideology. I can’t change a progressive/liberal’s mind just like they can’t change mine.

        What I do understand though is that progressive/liberals have no sense of dignity. I also understand that progressive/liberals have no respect for tradition. It doesn’t matter if a custom has existed since the dawn of Western Civilization, they are willing to discard tradition like someone who would take out the trash, especially if they no longer find it personally gratifying. I’m not interested in re-inventing the wheel, I’ll leave you and yours to that.

      • Denniso

        We have elected two personally liberal/left presidents,Clinton and Obama,but they have to try to govern w/a moderate congress at best and at times a rightwing one,so they have no choice but to move toward the center…then they are attacked by the rightists as ‘socialists’ as well as by the left as too rightwing or moderate. The most ‘leftwing’ thing done for a while is the healthcare reform,which isn’t very leftwing anyway,since it is just like what Romney did in Mass and what the Repubs favored in the Clinton era…w/ the entire Repub party fighting it,obama moved so far to the right and toward the insurance industry that he outraged the left who wanted a fight for single payer or the public option at least.

        The rightwing is so far right now and increasingly so,that they can’t see the middle,let alone the left on any issue. When you toss in their loyalty to the Taliban-like religious fundamentalist base, they start to look very near to the Muslim fanatics who govern w/ Sharia law.

  • http://gmail.com ma61

    I support the idea of Senator Rand Paul to stop “all” foreign aids to outher nations. Our country cannot afford to spend monies it doesn’t have. Also it is important that politicians understand that they cannot play with fire. What I mean is we either support the good or the evil ones. We cannot play with both parties, what do we represent?

  • JustDWD

    Quote”
    First, did Paul advocate cutting off foreign aid to Israel? Absolutely! From the very first moment he began campaigning for a seat in the U.S. Senate, he said that he would work to halt all foreign aid to everyone. Paul never singled out Israel, as the anti-anti-Semites in the Senate pretend. He believes that it is almost insane for this country to borrow money from China so we can give it away to half of the world—and in many cases to countries that use our aid to suppress their own population and/or kill their neighbors.

    In his actual statement, which the mainstream media pretend does not exist, Paul pointed out that the U.S. sends four times more aid to Israel’s enemies than we do to that poor beleaguered country.”

    I see a LOT of trolling and hate speech here. Some people will say anything to hide the facts, and if they have no facts distort and raise emotional issues to distract from the real issues.

    The above quote of the article which quotes Rand Paul bullseye’s the problem (as opposed to Bulls***ing the people). The problem is that as soon as you give me a dollar it’s my money and it is the same with countries. When you give out foreign aid in the form of dollars it becomes the money of whomever is the ruler or rulers.
    I don’t think we should cut all foreign aid but I do think we should cut all monetary foreign aid.
    Religion, ethnicity, race and sex of the receiving people have nothing to do with what they spend the money on. When a domestic charity gives away money and requires that the recipient spends the money on a particular need they can do little to insure that the people do as they are told and spend the money on the intended purpose. How much less control is there when the USA gives the money to a foreign country? There is in fact NONE! The only thing we can do is STOP SENDING THEM MONEY WHICH THEY MISUSE!! This is what Rand Paul campaigned on and supported.
    I do not agree with his stand but I do agree that to continue sending money to tyrants knowing that they are causing or increasing human misery with it, be they a single individual or a group, is inexcusable and unethical STUPIDITY!
    It is stupidity because stupidity is doing the same thing the same way and expecting a different result. We send money they use it for selfish evil purposes. We send more they do the same! That is when whey need to be cut of totally. It is just good common sense.
    How anybody can read into that antisemitism, bigotry, racism sexism or any other form of hate is beyond me. Unless and only unless they have an ulterior motive in doing so.

    I agree with Rand Paul. We should end all foreign aid. We even give foreign aid to Cuba and Vietnam. That’s really nice. We end funding to South Vietnam fighting for their freedom, allowing hundreds of thousands to be slaughtered, then turn around and give foreign aid to North Vietnam and prop up their communist government. It is just ridiculous to borrow money to give to these countries. You can only surmise some or many politicians are determined to destroy America.

    • James

      Bruce D., I agree. Congress has no power to tax Americans for the benefit of foreigners. In United States v. Butler, 297 U.S. 1 (1936) the court struck down FDR’s Agricultural Adjustment Act as being unconstitutional because it taxed food processors for the benefit of farmers – not a dime was used to support the government. If that was unconstitutional, how much moreso is foreign aid?

    • James

      Bruce D., We have always supported communist nations. Let’s remember that we were allied with the Soviet Union in WW II. Just before that war, FDR imposed all sorts of sanctions on Japan, who had just invaded China, who was becoming communist. FDR nationalized almost the entire U.S. economy and put millions on the federal payroll. After China became communist, we extended Most Favored Treatment to them.

      http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c112:S.RES.85:

      Reading the text of the bill will equip you to debate some of the baseless arguments.

      If a critic tries to make a point that Rand Paul agreed to senate resolution 85 be sure to discuss the following:

      1. It is a sense of the senate resolution. It is equatable to an opinion poll. It is not legally binding and does not create policy.

      2. Only once in the entirety of the bill does it mention any kind of action other than condemnation of Gadhafi. With the lack of importance on the bill and the incredibly short time in which it took to pass, it is very likely that many candidates did not even finish reading the resolution.

      3. No where in the resolution does it include actually creating a no fly zone or intervention. It merely states that it should be considered. From Resolution 85: “(7) urges the United Nations Security Council to take such further action as may be necessary to protect civilians in Libya from attack, including the possible imposition of a no-fly zone over Libyan territory;”

          Rand Paul is a punk kid w/ a famous father and will implode on his own extremism and contradictions…

          • libertytrain

            You mean like Al Gore did?

          • Denniso

            Al Gore the extemist? That’s funny…I guess you belong to the fringe non thinkers who refuse to listen to scientists,and think they know more about climate science,though they know literally nohing…those fools like Limbaugh,Beck.

          • libertytrain

            Let me say that I don’t respect him in the least, he is not a scientist, he is a guy who became whom he became because of his daddy; and went on to push something that made him wealthy enough to live in a style and manner that demonstrates that he does not live nor practice what he preaches. He is a grandiose ass.

          • Denniso

            Al Gore is not a scientist,neither are most of those who deny climate change. All Al Gore did was to convey to the public the message from the consensus of scientists,after he educated himself on the issue. If the deniers took the time to learn and understand the science behind warming then they would have some credibility…most know nothing about the science and yet think they can take a hard position against the science…that’s what’s laughable. All they are doing is following the lead of know nothings like Limbaugh and Beck,and taking a nonsensical political position. I don’t think that includes you.

          • libertytrain

            I’m sorry to say, while I mistakenly voted for him when he lost the presidential election, I have come to believe he is a joke and I am embarrassed that I ever voted for the goof ball.

          • libertytrain

            Oh, you are correct, I do not watch/listen to either of those two fellows.

    The expression ‘anti-semitic’ means being against the descendents of Shem, one of the sons of Noah. However, that is not the origin of modern Jews, nor is it the origin of any other race than Adamites. Noah was saved because he was “perfect in his generations” as also were his three sons. They perpetuated the Adamic race.

    Anyone with a good grasp of history will realize that the liberal view of life was never what it was perceived to be—a creative movement which would shape the future—but rather a sort of death wish.

    The final conclusion would seem to be that whereas other civilizations have been brought down by attacks of barbarians from without, ours had the unique distinction of training its own destroyers at its own educational institutions and providing them with facilities for propagating their destructive ideology far and wide, all at the public expense.

    Thus did Western man decide to abolish himself, creating his own boredom out of his own affluence, his own vulnerability out of his own strength, his own impotence out of his own erotomania, himself blowing the trumpet that brought the walls of his own city tumbling down.

    And, having convinced himself that he is too numerous, labors with pill and scalpel and syringe to make himself fewer, until at last, having educated himself into imbecility and polluted and drugged himself into stupefaction, he keels over, a weary, battered old brontosaurus, and becomes extinct.

        How are you?

          I’m doing well,though the slow economy is tough on business. I don’t show up here as much as before because I’m losing my patience w/ some of these yahoos,but I’ll check in now and then. The rightwingers never say anything any different and all sound exactly the same…of course they also don’t want to listen to any reason or logic…they’re stuck in the muck.

    I am against all Foreign AId. I believe in Fortress America. Defend the US only. Get our troops out of every Foreign Country. Guarantee every American Citizen: a job, a decent wage food, shelter, health care and education. America First. Also English should be he offical langauge.

    No wonder muslims think they can fly an islamic flag over the white house……………..we fund them.

  • Evelyn Dodd

    Better late than never! I too think that we need to stop sending aid to foreign countries, especially since, yes, we are borrowing the money to “loan” it. I doubt very strongly that any of them will ever pay it back.
    In addition, we need to get out of the United Nations completely. We contribute more of our “borrowed” money to that organization than any other country. The misuse of its funds and the corruption are 2 very good reasons to “diconnect”.

  • James

    The bottom line is: No where in Article I, Section 8 does the Constitution say: “Congress shall have the power to tax Americans and give it to foreigners.” If anyone disagrees, show me.

  • James

    If you want to end foreign aid, write to your congressmen and tell them that.
