Research shows that future Israeli premier asked for U.S. bombing of Nazi deathcamps Friday, September 02, 2011 By Martin Barillas
Seventy years ago today, the first gassing of prisoners by the Nazis was carried out in the Auschwitz death camp. Now researchers have found evidence that Golda Meir, the future prime minister of Israel, tried to persuade the United States government to bomb the camp.
On September 3, 1941, the Nazis gassed to death 850 prisoners in Auschwitz. During the next three years, an estimated 1.75 million prisoners, most of them Jews, were murdered in the gas chambers there. A number of Jewish leaders asked the Roosevelt administration to bomb the camp, or the railways leading to it, in 1944. What was not known until now is that one of those who sought the bombing was a young Zionist leader in Palestine who would later become Israel’s most renown prime minister: Golda Meir.
Researchers from The David S. Wyman Institute for Holocaust Studies, based in Washington, D.C., recently discovered documents in American and Israeli archives revealing the role of Mrs. Meir in the bombing controversy.
A report on the documents, “Golda Meir and the Campaign for an Allied Bombing of Auschwitz,” by Wyman Institute director Dr. Rafael Medoff, has been posted on http://www.WymanInstitute.org See Medoff’s books here.
The documents have been provided to the TALI Education Fund in Israel, for inclusion in its forthcoming curriculum on Israel-Diaspora relations, “Friends Across the Ocean.” The curriculum will be used in 90 Israeli public schools, with 40,000 students, as part of a new educational track emphasizing the responsibility of Jews in Israel and abroad to help each other.
Prof. Henry Feingold, author of The Politics of Rescue: The Roosevelt Administration and the Holocaust, 1938-1945, and president emeritus of the Labor Zionists of America, provided the following statement to the Wyman Institute: “These documents shed new light on efforts by Labor Zionists in Europe and Palestine to bring about the bombing of Auschwitz. This information needs to be included in accounts of the Jewish response to the Nazi genocide.”
In the 1940s, Meir, known then as Goldie Myerson, was a senior official of the Histadrut, the powerful Jewish labor federation in British Mandatory Palestine. She and her colleagues received many harrowing messages from their Labor Zionist colleagues in Europe about Nazi atrocities. The authors of one such message located by the Wyman Institute described themselves as “separated from you by a sea of blood and continents heaped with corpses.”
In an exchange of correspondence uncovered by the Wyman Institute, Meir forwarded one of the European messages to the Histadrut’s U.S. representative, Israel Mereminski, in July 1944 together with an appeal to ask U.S. officials to undertake “the bombing of Oswienzim* [Auschwitz] and railway transporting Jews” to the death camp. Meir’s appeal was cosigned by another Histadrut official, Heschel Frumkin.
Mereminski replied that he contacted the U.S. government’s War Refugee Board, which in turn submitted “to competent authorities” the Meir-Frumkin request for “destruction gas chambers, crematories, and so forth.”
The August 1944 issue of Jewish Frontier, the U.S. Labor Zionist journal, featured an unsigned editorial calling for “Allied bombings of the death camps and the roads leading to them…” The editorial was highly unusual; almost all appeals for bombing the death camps were made through private channels. Although Mereminski is not known to have been involved in writing editorials for Jewish Frontier, he was a senior figure in Labor Zionist activity in America and was closely acquainted with its editors; it seems likely that his contacts with Meir, Frumkin, and the War Refugee Board on this issue played a role in bringing about the editorial.
Jewish leaders who requested the bombing of Auschwitz invariably received a stock reply from Assistant Secretary of War John McCloy, claiming it was “impracticable” because it would require “diversion of considerable air support essential to the success of our forces now engaged in decisive operations.”
Research by Prof. David S. Wyman, author of The Abandonment of the Jews, later revealed that, in fact, U.S. planes in 1944 repeatedly bombed German oil targets adjacent to Auschwitz–some of them less than five miles from the gas chambers–so it would not have been a “diversion” to have them strike the mass murder facilities.
We know every detail about other presidents and their families, why not this one?
When he was arrested, he told police he wanted to call the White House. Why not? If President Obama bailed out General Motors, why not his own uncle?
In one of his autobiographies, President Obama talks fondly about Onyango, calling him “Uncle Omar.” So it’s not like they were long lost relatives. But Uncle Omar isn’t the only embarrassment in the Obama family. Uncle Omar’s sister — Obama’s aunt — is a newsmaker, too. Her name is Auntie Zeituni. She was once living illegally in the U.S. too, although she was granted asylum last year. Uncle Omar even had a social security number.
Then there’s Obama’s grandmother Sarah. She still lives in Kenya. And until a PR firm gave her electricity as a publicity stunt, she lived in a hut without power.
Have you ever heard of any of these members of Obama’s family?
These aren’t distant relatives. They’re aunts and uncles and his grandma.
How could Obama have let his own grandmother live without even electric power? How could he not help his uncle and aunt come into compliance with America’s immigration laws?
OK, how about this: What do you know about Obama’s brothers and sisters? He’s got as many as eight half brothers and sisters — some in the U.S., one in China, some in Africa. Can you name one?
How about his parents? Obama’s father, Barack Obama Sr., was a Kenyan foreign student in Hawaii when he met Obama’s mom, Stanley. That was her name, Stanley. She was just a teenager. Obama Sr. already had a wife and baby back in Kenya, but he married Stanley anyways. He was a polygamist.
How did you not know that? Easy, the Media Party didn’t tell you.
We know every detail about other presidents and their families — especially their goofy relatives. Jimmy Carter’s brother, Billy, actually worked for Moammar Gadhafi. Bill Clinton’s half brother, Roger, served time in prison for cocaine.
Sarah Palin ran for vice president, but we know everything about her — and her daughter Bristol’s ex-boyfriend Levi Johnston. There are more than two million Google hits about him — just 20,000 for Obama’s half brother Mark.
The real point is we know less about Obama than any other president in modern times.
A polygamist dad is exotic. Obama then followed his mom and his new stepdad to Indonesia, where he went to a Muslim school for two years. That’s exotic, too.
His mom and dad originally met because of their love of Communism, revolution and third world-ism. That’s unusual. It also informs Obama’s beliefs today — in everything from the war on terror to foreign affairs to capitalism.
We don’t know about Obama, or his values, or his history, or even his family.
And the reason we don’t know any of this is because the Media Party doesn’t want us to know.
They realize this is all too exotic and problematic, and would lead to just too many questions about their candidate. So they dispatched dozens of reporters to Wasilla, Alaska, to scrutinize Palin, but not to Indonesia or Kenya.
Obama is alien. Not because he’s black, but because his beliefs are alien, and were formed in a crucible of radical student activism. If anything, Obama isn’t black in the traditional U.S. political sense — he is not descended from slaves. His adult life was one of charmed privilege, a Harvard lawyer-millionaire.
Barack Obama is going down as the worst president in American history. American voters may fix that next year. But the Media Party’s cover-up of his faults — and even the basic facts of his life — is a problem that will surely continue for years to come………………
The Curse of Obama: What does it mean a “civil discussion”?:
2011 – House Dem: Tea Party is the ‘real enemy’
Posted by Gunny G at Saturday, September 03, 2011
MORE than a dozen American states are considering outlawing aspects of Shariah law. Some of these efforts would curtail Muslims from settling disputes over dietary laws and marriage through religious arbitration, while others would go even further in stigmatizing Islamic life: a bill recently passed by the Tennessee General Assembly equates Shariah with a set of rules that promote “the destruction of the national existence of the United States.”
Supporters of these bills contend that such measures are needed to protect the country against homegrown terrorism and safeguard its Judeo-Christian values. The Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich has said that “Shariah is a mortal threat to the survival of freedom in the United States and in the world as we know it.”
This is exactly wrong. The crusade against Shariah undermines American democracy, ignores our country’s successful history of religious tolerance and assimilation, and creates a dangerous divide between America and its fastest-growing religious minority.
The suggestion that Shariah threatens American security is disturbingly reminiscent of the accusation, in 19th-century Europe, that Jewish religious law was seditious. In 1807, Napoleon convened an assembly of rabbinic authorities to address the question of whether Jewish law prevented Jews from being loyal citizens of the republic. (They said that it did not.)

Much has happened since my last visit. In the Netherlands we were able to achieve many amazing things. We have successfully started to roll back the process of Islamization in the Netherlands. We have done so in a peaceful way and through the democratic process. Recently, a deranged narcissistic psychopath from Norway committed a horrible crime. In cold blood he murdered nearly eighty innocent fellow citizens. The assassin pretended to be a concerned European. He said that he had committed his atrocity because “It is meaningless to participate in the democratic process.” But he is wrong! The mass murderer from Oslo murdered and maimed, and he justified his heinous crime by denying – I quote – “that it is remotely possible to change the system democratically.” – end of quote. But he is wrong! The Oslo murderer falsely claims to be one of us. But he is not one of us. We abhor violence. We are democrats. We believe in peaceful solutions.
Woman Hits Moose With Car After Sister Hits Moose With Car The moose of Canada are stalking and haunting Connie Evirett and Yvonne Studley, two car-driving sisters from British Columbia. Last month Studley, 49, had a car accident involving one of the beasts; the melee left her in a coma, and the moose in a moose coffin. Then, while on the way to the hospital to visit her younger sister, 51-year-old Evirett had a moose/car accident of her own.
Everitt told a reporter: “My first thought was, ‘Are the moose going out [on a] hunting season for my family?’” Seems the answer to that question is pretty clear.
Update: Looks like the women’s accidents happened in 2010, but some media outlets are reporting on them as though they have just happened. It’s possible that Studley and Evirett were involved in a second round of moose-related car accidents that occurred one month apart. Or that they’re trapped in a Groundhog Day-like time loop.
In what appeared to be a major outline of her policies, Sarah Palin dropped a HUGE bombshell on the current Republican field of candidates. She proposed an elimination of ALL corporate taxes, thereby removing all corporate incentives to cozy up to politicians.
Such a policy has never been proposed before but is a very simple, common-sense approach to defusing and eliminating crony-capitalism. Remove the incentive for lobbying for special tax breaks and you remove a corporations investment in those efforts.
Sarah went on to say that corporations should also be forced to live or die by their decisions without any government interventions whatsoever. I couldn’t agree more. I talked about Steve Job’s contribution on The Roderic Deane Show last week and the fact that his failures helped pave the way for his successes.
Sarah’s speech is going to have a profound impact on the current Republican candidates. It will be VERY interesting to see if any of them attempt to co-opt her ideas. She needs to enter the presidential sweepstakes to bring her revolutionary and common-sense ideas to the forefront. For now, she’ll have to rely on her supporters in the blogosphere to get the word out.
I truly believe that this speech will become Sarah Palin’s “A Time For Choosing”.

How the NYPD Gets Jihad Right
How the NYPD Gets Jihad Right:
“Jihad is Jihad. There is no such thing as commerce, industry, and science in jihad. This is calling things other than by its [sic] own name. If Allah says, ‘Do jihad,’ it means do jihad with the sword, with the cannon, with the grenades, and with the missile. This is Jihad. Jihad against Allah’s enemies for Allah’s cause and his word.”
“Why do we fear the word ‘terrorist’? If the terrorist is the person who defends his right, so we are terrorists. . . . The Koran mentions the words ‘to strike terror,’ therefore we don’t fear to be described with ‘terrorism.’ . . . We are ordered to prepare whatever we can of power to terrorize the enemies of Islam.”
This rhetoric was not at all unusual. It was the sort of thing you’d hear on any given Friday at mosques in Brooklyn or Jersey City. Nor is there anything ostensibly criminal about it, at least according to the hash the Supreme Court has made of the First Amendment.

Lost iPhone 5: Bernal Heights Man Says Visitors Impersonating Police Searched His Home (Exclusive):
Update (3:25 p.m.): Police now say they did assist Apple security with the home search of a Bernal Heights man. Read the full story here.
A Bernal Heights man says that six officials claiming to be San Francisco Police officers questioned him and searched his family’s home in July for a lost iPhone 5 prototype they asserted had been traced to the residence using GPS technology.
The man’s statements to SF Weekly in an exclusive interview add significant new twists to the unfolding story of the unreleased iPhone 5 that was reportedly lost at a San Francisco restaurant this summer.
If accurate, his account raises the possibility that Apple security personnel attempting to recover the prototype falsely represented themselves as police officers — a criminal act punishable by up to a year in jail in the state of California — or that SFPD employees colluding with Apple failed to properly report an extensive search of a person’s home, car, and computer.
“This is something that’s going to need to be investigated now,” SFPD spokesman Lt. Troy Dangerfield said, when informed about the Bernal Heights man’s statements to SF Weekly. “If this guy is saying that the people said they were SFPD, that’s a big deal.”……………….

Rep. Allen West isn’t being deterred by accusations of “Islamophobia,” and will be hosting a screening of the Christian Action Network’s film, “Sacrificed Survivors: The Untold Story of the Ground Zero Mosque” in Congress on September 7. The event kicks off a screening tour in New York City public parks around the tenth anniversary of 9/11 that is sure to rile up the deniers of the Islamist threat.
The event is being held on the morning of September 7 from 11:30 am to 1:00 PM in Room B-339 of the Rayburn Congressional Office Building, thanks to Rep. Allen West. It is generating significant media coverage and controversy, as is the Christian Action Network’s tour in New York City against the Ground Zero Mosque that begins later that night. West and some of the other participants have been labeled as “Islamophobes” in the Center for American Progress’s “Fear Inc.” report, which specifically mentions this event as evidence of the alleged growing anti-Muslim bigotry in the country.
Rep. West is listed in the report as part of the “Islamophobia echo chamber.” He is called a “loyal foot soldier in the misguided campaign against Sharia.” A Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations recently wrote him a letter asking him to end his relationships with Islamophobic activists. He wrote a one-sentence response: “I am writing to you with regard [to] your recent letter: ‘NUTS!’”

As a Marine WebSite author, I have had the opportunity of viewing many other Marine WebSites, and interacting with other Marines on the web, most of them Marines much younger than myself. Having done so (whereas I would otherwise have had no occasion to even speak with another Marine) I can say that I am impressed with the realization that no matter how much things change, the more they stay the same. During my period of active service (1952-72) great changes took place both within and without the Marine Corps. As Marines, we have all experienced such changes. But, there are also many less dramatic changes that, together with the greater changes, affect how we feel about both ourselves as Marines, and our Corps. As a result of my experience on the net, one ever constant, never-changing, glaring fact stands out, sounding off loud and clear to me in regard to our present day Marines: Today’s Marines are still the same Gung-Ho Marines they always were!….”Semper Fidelis!”
The following are a few reflections regarding some of the changes I experienced and remember.
In August of 1952, after boot camp, I picked up my first set of orders, bought a train ticket, went home for ten days leave, and then proceeded to report to Marine Barracks, Camp Joseph H. Pendleton, Oceanside, California.The Marine Corps that I found at that time was, in many ways, quite different than the one I retired from at the same Camp Pendleton in 1972.
I remember that our Military Service Number (MSN)– mine was 1345xxx–before we used Social Security Numbers (SSN)– was shown on dogtags and documents with an SS for selective service (for draftees), or USMC or USMCR for the rest of us. Oh yeah, there was a K (for Korea service) indicated with the MSN for Korean war vets.
In the area of uniforms, we were still issued and/or wearing “battle jackets” (both khaki and green). We wore MC insignia on our summer service shirt collars. There were no authorized summer service “tropical” uniforms yet, only cotton khaki. Not all Marines were issued boots yet, some of us still had the old “boondockers.” We referred to our utility uniforms as “dungarees.” — the old herringbone type. Just about that time, we got the word to tuck our jackets in at the waist, and blouse our trousers over our boots–if you had boots; otherwise, you wore leggings with the low-cut shoes. Flannel shirts were still issued (again, both green and khaki). No tie clasps yet, field scarves just blew in the breeze. And belt buckles were not polished , because they were black. Civilian attire on liberty was OK–but, no Levi’s and no shirts w/o collars.
The rank structure was paygrade E-1 thru E-7. No E-8/E-9 paygrades. No lance corporals, no gunnery sergeants, although Technical Sergeants (TSgt) were commonly referred to as Gunny, in honor of that title formerly in use in the Corps. My boot camp issue of Guidebook for Marines still indicated the title of Platoon Sergeant, which had been replaced by Staff Sergeant. First Sergeants and Sergeants Major were all MSgts, usually the most senior MSgts.
Marines were issued the M-1 “Garand” rifle as their T/O weapon. SNCOs had the………………….

Philander Knox was a lawyer, a U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania, U.S. Attorney General from 1901-1904 and U.S. Secretary of State from 1909-1913. He was considered an ally of big business and helped to establish the U.S. Steel Company in 1901.
(Sep. 2, 2011) — On May 21, 1895, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that a direct tax on personal income was unconstitutional as a result of the case of Pollock v. Farmers‘ Loan and Trust Company. The lawsuit had been precipitated by the 1894 Income Tax Act. The Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision stated that a “direct tax” on the “income of real and of personal property” was “unconstitutional and void.”
The Wilson-Gorman Tariff Act, also passed in 1894, sought to lower tariffs, which were the major source of revenue for the federal government at the time, and impose a 2% tax on incomes which surpassed $4,000 annually. However, over 600 amendments were added to the original bill, which reportedly diluted its intended effect.
Wikipedia reports that the Supreme Court’s decision of 1895 was later “nullified” “by Amendment XVI to the US Constitution.” Another report states that “…in 1894 Congress enacted a flat rate Federal income tax, which was ruled unconstitutional the following year by the U.S. Supreme Court because it was a direct tax not apportioned according to the population of each state. The 16th amendment, ratified in 1913, removed this objection by allowing the Federal government to tax the income of individuals without regard to the population of each State.”
Can a U.S. Supreme Court decision be “nullified?” Can a law passed by Congress be declared unconstitutional by a court?……………..
Asked during the 2008 presidential campaign about his relationship with the left-wing radical Bill Ayers, Barack Obama replied that Ayers was just “a guy who lives in my neighborhood.” He implied that to even bring that questionable relationship out of the shadows was a mean-spirited, guilt-by-association political tactic. Ayers, Obama went on, had done something deplorable “forty years ago when I was six or seven years old.”
Otherwise, Obama insisted, Ayers was a paragon of virtue: a respectable fixture in mainstream Chicago, a professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago, on a foundation board focused on education that included “Republicans, bankers, lawyers.” Ayers had even worked for, and was a good friend of, Mayor Richard M. Daley. The Obama campaign at once launched a crusade to distance Obama from Ayers. It went so far as to actually defend the man who had implicated himself in terror bombings in his own 2001 memoir, Fugitive Days.
In fact, Ayers and his wife, Bernardine Dohrn, were radical Marxist revolutionaries in the Vietnam War era. They were founders of the Weather Underground, a violent terrorist arm of Students for a Democratic Society. Both were eventually indicted in federal court, and Dohrn by the State of Illinois. Rather than face a trial they jumped bail and disappeared into the underground in 1970. After they resurfaced 11 years later, both were admitted into the halls of academia. Ayers became a Distinguished Professor of Education and a Senior University Scholar at the University of Illinois-Chicago. Incredibly, Dohrn became a law professor at Northwestern.

Bill O’Reilly goes too far investigating his wife’s policeman boyfriend?:
It’s alleged that O’Reilly used his fame and money to get the police department’s internal affairs to do an investigation into this policeman.
Gawker reports that, O’Reilly suspected his wife of having a relationship last year with a police detective in his town of Nassau and he used his influence to have the man investigated by his own police department’s internal affairs.
Accusations from Gawker suggest that O’Reilly was due to give a massive donation to the Nassau County Police Department to build a training center around the time this favor was asked and this may be the reason his request was granted.
The man being investigated was not married and if he was having a relationship with O’Reilly’s wife, this would not have been an offense as a policeman or something internal affairs would normally investigate.

Here is an excerpt from the book, Battle Cry…. Page 468…
(Note: Red Beach One, Saipan–the beloved “Highpockets” Huxley, 2nd Battalion CO has been killed, casualties are high and the enemy is counterattacking, and now Captain Max Shappiro, Fox Company commander lies dying also….)
“As the stunned Marines braced for the death they knew must come, Two Gun Shapiro stepped in front of them, his two pistols smoking, He turned to his Marines and over the din they heard a gristly shriek from his lips. ‘Blood!’ he cried. Max Shapiro sank to his knees, his pistols empty. He threw them at the enemy, ‘Blood’ he screamed, ‘Blood!’
The men of Huxley’s Whores were petrified. A legend was broken. The invincible captain, the man bullets could not touch, the man they believed was almost divine, lay there writhing in agony the same as any human being. The blood gushed from his mouth and ears and nose and he rolled over defiantly, trying to crawl to his enemy to kill them with bare hands, the same ghastly word on his lips.
Was he human after all? Did he not realize that something must be done to elevate his men to a task beyond human capabilities? Was it his God who sent him forward to sacrifice himself? Or was Max Shapiro merely a mad dog, full of a glorious madness?
Huxley’s Whores rose to the heights of their dead captain. They no longer resembled human beings. Savage beyond all savagery, murderous beyond murder, they shrieked, ‘BLOOD!’ ‘BLOOD!’ …’BLOOD!’
The enemy,” who were mere mortals, fell back.”
Although fiction, the scene as depicted above serves to generally define, for purposes of this webpage, something of just what is meant by the term “Battle Cry.”

…In the end of your book, you talk about how things don’t seem to change. What do you see as the future of America? Do you see us getting worse before it gets better?
Right now, the people in charge of the government remind us every day that they are the Party of Lincoln. They’ve stretched Lincoln’s philosophy to say that not only should we wage war within our own country ostensibly for democracy, as Lincoln said in the Gettysburg Address, but we should wage war all around the world to force democracy on people, whether they want it or not. Not just in Iraq. They’re talking about invading the entire Middle East, for starters, to bring democracy there, as though it were any of our business.
That is empire. Any country that has had a big empire like that has always been bankrupted. If that’s the road we’re going on, I think it’s the road that Lincoln started us on. Look at what the same government did. Immediately after the War, they commenced a campaign of ethnic genocide against the Plains Indians. That was all part of this plan to have a continental empire.
Now, these people think we need to have a world empire. It’s un-American. The Founding Fathers would have fought another revolution over this.
What do you think will happen?
It seems to me that the American public has been dumbed down so much by the government schools that they’re just going to go along with this until it either bankrupts us all or we make enough enemies out there that September 11 will seem like child’s play. You can’t do this without making a lot of enemies in the world. That’s my biggest fear — that we won’t get rid of these Sons of Lincoln who run the Republican Party.
I agree with Clyde Wilson that America can’t be saved or returned to its roots until the Republican Party is destroyed…..
…Do you expect it to ever go back, as the United States?
Seriously, the only way it could, would be secession. If a big chunk of the United States actually seceded from the federal government and pained it a bit and deprived it of a large amount of its revenue. Otherwise, how else could it possibly happen?
Could it possibly return to limited government roots? I can’t see how it could possibly happen.
I’m not very optimistic anymore. I was more optimistic when communism fell. I never thought I’d see communism collapse in my lifetime. But, I was thinking for a while, well, if it could happen there, we can get rid of our rotten system. But, the Republican Party, which is in power and in control of things, worked out the direction. They, now, no longer oppose the welfare state. In fact, they’re expanding it because they want to win the votes from all the people on welfare.
Sons of Lincoln. I keep having to say it.
Thank you so much for taking the time to speak with us.

Hey, See the Reader Responses on each article,
they are gems in themselves!
Gunny G: BLOGGER 1984 +
The news of Governor Rick Perry jumping into the Republican nomination race for president released a media tsunami that assaulted my brain. In no time at all, people came up with a long list of negatives about him. In a democracy, honest and thorough scrutiny of anyone’s records seeking a public office is not only the prerogative of the electorate, but its duty.
Being a lifelong critic of Islam, red flags popped up in my head at Perry’s purported cozy relationship with Islam and prompted me to look very closely at the governor’s record on this particular issue and at this specific time.
1. Countries of Western Civilization have secular governments, which means great toleration of cultural and religious differences.
2. Countries of Islamic Civilization for the most part either have religiously dominated governments or demands to make them more religious, which means less toleration of cultural and religious differences.
3. Muslims often lack respect for Western traditions and points of view. The Muslim relationship to the West is colored by the belief that Western beliefs [whether Christian or atheist] are defective and therefore inferior to Islam.
No matter how I tried, I couldn’t reach the conclusion that this inclusion promotes Islam or is pro-Sharia. It seems that the mere fact that Islam is included in the curriculum represents supporting it.
And with regard to the concern that the education curriculum Perry promoted is pro-Arab and against Israel, the evidence is exactly the opposite. The lesson on Israel reads:
Criticism flew Rick Perry’s way fast and furiously and from all directions. Here, Alana Goodman in Commentary bats a big one down……

As we look toward 2012, Republican challengers for the U.S. presidency are on prominent display. Two formidable female candidates, Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann, vie with Newt Gingrich, Rick Perry, Mitt Romney, Ron Paul and others in attempting to make Barack Obama a one-term president. Certain left-wing elements are ready to help bring Obama down by insidious communications regarding Obama’s record as president.
What these folks ignore is the outstanding ability and steady hand of our president in his first term of office. His accomplishments have largely gone unsung, but they are apparent to those who pay attention. Among them:
1) winding down the misbegotten war in Iraq;
2) prosecuting the Afghan war toward its conclusion;
3) supporting gay rights;
4) restoring America‘s image around the world;
5) banning torture of war prisoners;
6) stopping the freefall of the American economy;
7) putting America back in the multilateral international community;
8) supporting education reform;
9) moving terrorist trials back into the American judicial system of checks and balances;
10) starting the process of health care reform;
11) stopping the freefall of job losses;
12) making tough military decisions and defending them brilliantly;
13) winning the Nobel Peace Prize.
This is a partial record of the man we elected three years ago, who has returned the U.S. to world respectability. He has kept his promises and his positive attitude. Let’s work together to keep this astute leader and his exemplary family in the White House for a second term.

So in the interest of fair play, and equal time for all races, political persuasions and demographics, since the left struck first by defining Sarah Palin and so many Republicans as “Trailer Trash” (they do, we all know it and the evidence is positively everywhere), let us apply the question to the highest of the liberal/democrat social and political standard-bearers:
