Starting Fights (2)

I took my wife to a restaurant. The waiter, for some reason, took my
Order first.“I’ll have the strip steak, medium rare, please.”
He said, “Aren’t you worried about the mad cow?”
Nah, she can order for herself.
And that’s when the fight started…  

A woman is standing nude, looking in the bedroom mirror.
She is not happy with what she sees and says to her husband, “I feel horrible; I look old, fat and ugly. I really need you to pay me a compliment.” The husband replies, “Your eyesight’s damn near perfect.
And that’s when the fight started… 

I tried to talk my wife into buying a case of Miller Light for $14.95. Instead, she bought a jar of cold cream for $7.95.
I told her the beer would make her look better at night than the cold cream.
And that’s when the fight started… 

My wife asked me if a certain dress made her butt look big. I told her not as much as the dress that she had worn yesterday.
And that’s when the fight started… 

Iran Will Become Hopes Gained to Hopes Shattered

Beyond the Cusp

The protest started in Mashhad, the second or third largest city in Iran, on December 28, 2017, over prices and the poor economy. The demonstrators were largely the poor and some students but rapidly spread both along economic grounds to store owners and their employees and to every city. We are now into the second week of the protests and thus far, the leadership of Iran has shown little concern for the problems in their society. That includes both the supposed elected officials and the self-appointed leadership, which includes the Supreme Leader Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Ruhollah Mūsavi Khomeini and the Supreme Council of the Cultural Revolution who choose the Supreme Leader as well as vetting all candidates running for elected office, eliminating all candidates who show even the slightest glimmer of new ideas which might run contrary to their ninth century thinking. That has been both a good thing and…

Michael Wolff Sets the Record on Trump’s America

Beyond the Cusp

Michael Wolff’s bestselling book, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” actually tells us volumes and we do not even need read the book to understand the not-so-groundbreaking information actually proves a good deal. Oh, it proves almost nothing about President Trump as the book’s author, Michael Wolff, says he can’t be sure that all of it is true according to his interview with Business Insider. We really do not care so much about the words within the book as we do about the coverage it has received and will continue to receive and the tenor of both. The fact that a book the author refuses to state is valid at any level and is likely no more than conjecture at best and straight slanderous fallacies at worst and it easily found a publisher, a distributer and advertising proves our points alone with no further backup required. This…

Are the World’s Jews About to Come Out of the Desert?

Beyond the Cusp

There are some interesting numbers concerning the Jewish People over their history. Their time in Egypt supposedly was four-hundred years. These years in which them served as bonded workers building the Pharos’s city, left them unable to act as a people or serve in a military capacity. This resulted in their spending forty years in the desert wandering from camp site to camp site until the generations of bonded workers had mostly died off or were too old to be expected to fight, they had become the hangers on. The youth who came out of Egypt did largely have the ability to fight so were allowed to enter the lands which are Israel. With this math behind us, forty years in the desert to remove four-hundred years outside being responsible for protecting themselves, let us move onward.

Ezekiel said the Jews were to be punished for 430 years because they…

Brussels now flanked by mortal enemies on four sides

Folklore, and a good deal of the historical evidence, has it that the bane of the German armies in the first half of the 20th century was the desperate, and ultimately insurmountable, problem of fighting their wars on two fronts at the same time.

The Brussels elite seems oblivious to the present, never mind the past. But even the myopic Eurocrats must be starting to panic at the emerging political geography of contemporary Europe.

They are beset by problems on four flanks.

To the north, Norway continues to flourish as a successful European country that won’t even join the EU.

Its treaty arrangements mean it is probably fair to say it has a kind of half in half out status. Nonethless, it stands as the proverbial threat of a good example to the deep integrationists in Brussels, showing you can do very well thank you by rejecting membership, avoiding the euro, and managing most of your affairs on your own.

Sweden and Denmark are members, but they are awkward customers from Brussels’ point of view, and have also rejected the euro — a slap in the face for the vision of Europe pushed by the likes of Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission, and his fierce sidekick Martin Selmayr.

What would Reagan do on Terrorism, North Korea and Russia?

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: “Intra-state strategic competition [with Russia and China], not terrorism, is the primary concern of US national security,” posits the DOD 2018 National Defense Strategy (NDS). But how justified is this focus shift from the ongoing fight against Islamist terrorism? And can Moscow and Beijing’s interest in defeating this common enemy be harnessed to this fight? Exploring President Reagan’s policies to terrorism and intra-state competition can provide some useful clues.

With the destruction of the ISIS caliphate in Syria and Iraq, the US and its allies won an important battle, but not the global war. Many ISIS survivors have deployed elsewhere – from Yemen, to Sinai, to Libya – while the vacuum left by the organization’s downfall is being rapidly filled by al-Qaeda and its affiliates. In Afghanistan, the Taliban, al-Qaeda and other terrorist organizations control some 70 percent of the country’s territory, hardly the consolidation of US “gains in Afghanistan” claimed by the 2018 National Defense Strategy (NDS).

Israel’s intelligence helped 30 countries thwart terror attacks in 2017

The UN can’t stop raining down condemnations on Israel for alleged human rights abuses, while ignoring actual human rights abusers around the globe. Israel is vilified and demonized on false pretenses on college and university campuses all over Europe and North America. The European Union follows the UN’s lead in smearing Israel.

But this is the reality. Israel helped 30 countries prevent terror attacks. Maybe this is one reason why the Islamic states of the world are so intent upon destroying the Jewish state.
