In the poll of Jewish voters (conducted April 1-30), it showed Obama getting 61% of the Jewish vote against John McCain (32%). Yet in the same poll Hillary Clinton beat Obama among Jewish voters 62% – 38%. So obviously Jews are lifelong democrats who will vote for Obama, whom they rejected in the primaries, rather than vote for McCain. Thus, for them, party loyalty is preferable to Israel loyalty.
Recently I posted two articles by Yarom Ettinger, former Israeli Ambassador to the US, The Prospects of a Palestinian State and National Interests of the United States and It’s American interests, stupid, both of which clearly demonstrate that keeping Israel strong is to keep America strong. Thus to be pro-Israel is to be pro-America.

On the eve of the Tory Party conference, the shadow Home Secretary Dominic Grieve issued a blunt warning.
In the name of multiculturalism, he said, Britain had done something terrible to itself. It had downplayed British cultural identity, leaving long-standing inhabitants fearful and new immigrants alienated, creating a vacuum ripe for exploitation by extremists.
His warning could not be more timely or appropriate. Multiculturalism and its allied doctrines of human rights and anti-discrimination are acting as a kind of corrosive acid eating away at our institutions, values and national identity.

Obama is on record of wanting to reduce the US defense budget. McCain is on record of wanting to increase it. Considering the growing threat emanating from Russia, Iran, Venezuela and possibly China which is the better policy.
Obama is on record of wanting to engage Iran in talks. He ignores that Iran has been engaged for years by various of our allies and even by low level Americans to no avail. McCain is against doing so. I would ask Obama what he intends to offer Iran to get them to become peaceful. Perhaps Iraq, perhaps Lebanon, perhaps Israel. what?
Former Ambassador Dennis Ross, senior adviser on Middle East affairs to the Barack Obama campaign, told NJ Jewish News that Obama, not his Republican rival, John McCain, “would change the dynamic” to facilitate peace between Israel and its Arab neighbors and ease the potential nuclear threat from Iran.
“The stakes are so high in this election. I look at Israel’s strategic position. I look at the threat from Iran. I look at Hamas’ building a mini-terror state in Gaza, we can’t afford four more years of a policy that continues to create that kind of a strategic context.”
Obama “is not going to push Israel for concessions, but he is going to engage. It has been a huge mistake to disengage.”

If B. Hussein Obama is elected, we will have more and more of what the US simply cannot tolerate.
It will be more and more of Nancy Pelosi.. Can America withstand another assault from this brainless “leader” who knows not how to bring together those who bow before her throne?
She is worn and tattered. She promised the USA within the first 100 days of her governing that she would remake this country. We are still waiting as she instead turns the nation inside out.

What deserves closer scrutiny is Barack Obama’s history with ACORN. Obama cites Saul Alinsky, a self-acknowledged radical who advocated extreme acts to achieve social goals, as one of his inspirations. ACORN follows the Saul Alinsky model. After Obama graduated from Harvard, he went to work for ACORN in Chicago. Mr. Obama then became a trainer for ACORN, teaching others how to employ ACORN tactics in voter registration drives.
As negotiations over Congress’s emergency rescue bill continued over the weekend, repeated rumors leaked out that the Democrats were trying to funnel money to a hyper-partisan organization involved in criminal voter fraud. I’m speaking of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now — known by its acronym, ACORN. Although ACORN was cut from the final legislation, it’s important to understand this organization and its long history with, of all people, Barack Obama. And it’s important to see how partisan this emergency legislation has become.
Do Democrats still want to ask if Sarah Palin is ready to lead???

This Monday, the stock market lost a trillion dollars in market capitalization after the House of Representatives rejected bipartisan legislation to restore the flow of credit upon which American business depends. Republican and Democratic leaders had both worked to get what they expected to be enough votes from their respective parties to pass the legislation, even though many Representatives have valid misgivings about the expenditure of $700 billion to bail out private businesses. Many of their constituents do as well, and they told their Representatives. In other words, Republican and Democratic leaders had to work hard to overcome this constituent-side pressure.
Finally, all was ready. Democrats and Republicans had agreed on bipartisan legislation, and they thought they had enough votes to pass it. Then Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, the individual who is but two heartbeats away from the Presidency, said this:
