#Nationalism vs #Globalism - #IsraelAid breeds #AntiSemitisim

Blog post by AVO

In case you did not hear the news, the United States Congress last week approved a ten year military aid package to Israel worth 3.8bn annually. 

While I'm not going to delve into the specifics of this deal, I would like to discuss the general idea of state to state financial aid.

So I’ve been doing a lot of research into this and there’s just a ton of information that I could almost write a book, so I’m really cutting it short into a blog. 

The issue of foreign aid is one of the more appealing aspects of nonintervention libertarianism. There are so many moral considerations and underlying concepts that I’ll just have to skim over; use the comment box for any questions.

Millennials my age, always hear about which countries we’re helping. Whether its humanitarian aid, foreign military bases, naval ships in every ocean - or whatever - we’ve been so accustomed to thinking of who will benefit from these actions and never truly questioning whether the underlying premise is even legitimate. 

The founders of the United States understood the slippery slope of foreign intervention (financial interventions must be included) and its contribution to the demise of civilizations. It is precisely because of this that they therefore preached, “Commerce with all nations, alliances with none, should be our motto” (Thomas Jefferson). 

These military and trade alliances more often then not become entangling and can lead to conflicts of interest - often times leading to costly wars that do not better the lives of everyday Americans

Unfortunately, this is is exactly what has been happening over the last 60 years. 

Ask yourself how your life and security are better off as direct correlations to the wars in Korea, Vietnam, Bosnia, Iraq, Afghanistan and Iraq 2 (and these are just the major conflicts).

If it has bettered life for you and your community, I would love to hear how, so make use of the comment box. 

The point is these undeclared wars have been expensive, non-Constitutional, killed thousands of young people and gained us many enemies the world over. 

Also the way we’ve propped up many foreign regimes by supplying military personnel, cash and food supplies has the same deleterious effects and this is where I would like to focus. 

Plainly said, as an American, I would like to see every foreign aid dollar halted; as a Jew, I would like to see Israel have a little self respect and take itself off the proverbial American teat.

Being realistic, I know these ideals are a far way from becoming reality and we should devise a realistic plan to slowly realize both these with as few major consequences as possible. Our congress should make incremental but significant cuts every year across the board in foreign aid - with Israel being the last to go because of its extreme strategic significance. 

Many aid packages can be converted quite beautifully into mutually beneficial trade deals and must adopt such a tone. 

As far as I know at this moment, Israel is the only country that invites US forces for advanced training drills and there’s no reason that can’t be included in a mutually beneficial package deal. 

Also, let’s not forget that Mr Binyamin Netanyahu criticized Israel for its reliance on American handouts the first time he was prime minister and promised to wean Israel off, So Bibi, what has changed? 

Global terror wouldn’t be what it is today had the US not gotten itself tangled in these devastating wars. I couldn’t explore this topic of Israel’s reliance on the U.S. without mentioning Rav Meir Kahane. 

As a child I was very intrigued by his ideas and read his material voraciously, I heard from most adults (my father included) things like ‘well he had some good ideas but the Rabbis came out against him so we can’t support him’...

Yet I never ever heard anybody take his ideas head on without name calling or resorting to logical fallacies. 

R Kahane would criticize the almost universal support for American welfare in Israel, Hareidim included, as a lack of Trust in God, and the desecration of his name.

I would venture to say that this was somewhat prophetic and the Jewish state - and perhaps the American Jewish community as well - may be facing a major backlash in the near future. 

If you just check out the White Power and Nazi online forums then peel back what they’re saying, you begin to get at their true anger, and I must say that money going to Israel is major fuel for their fire. 

Obviously, the Arab media almost always mentions this close alliance as a reason to hate either America or Israel; they like having it both ways. 

I am definitely NOT giving credence to these hate groups nor would I suggest we take their feelings into account but I would like to point to the Hand of God so to speak, as a warning to my brethren, of the long term consequences of bad policies...

Hillary Lied - Who Knew! #MissingEmails

An interesting article by DEBRA HEINE where she discusses a potentially explosive nugget from the FBI's Friday document dump of investigatory notes from the Clinton email probe -which of course has been all but ignored by the media.
According to this scoop, Hillary Clinton apparently deleted 1,000 work-related emails between herself and General David Petaeus from his time as the director of the United States Central Command – Petaeus was indicted for mishandling emails and confidential information, go figure.
Via the Washington Examiner:
In Aug. 2015, the Pentagon called the State Department and informed an unnamed official there that "CENTCOM records showed approximately 1,000 work-related emails between Clinton's personal email and General David Petraeus."
The FBI noted that "[m]ost of those 1,000 emails were not believed to be included in the 30,000 emails" that Clinton turned over to the State Department in Dec. 2014.
Apparently, Hillary has long maintained that the emails her lawyers unilaterally deleted were personal emails pertaining to "yoga routines, family vacations" and other matters that had nothing to do with government. She repeated the same nonsense to Congress while under oath.
In August of 2015, she signed a statement to a federal judge declaring "under penalty of perjury" that she turned over all work-related emails – but of course Hillary was clearly lying...
Now we find out that 1,000 emails between Clinton and General Petraeus were not turned over - ever.
According to Henie, correctly, this should be a bigger story.
Petraeus started out as the leader of U.S. Central Command and then became the director of the CIA during Clinton's tenure as secretary of State, so not only were those emails obviously work related, they very likely were highly classified.
As is the case with the MSM, the implications of such an occurrence here is staggering.
But according to Heine, it gets worse(!)
The FBI summary also revealed that top State Department officials were actually putting pressure on employees to hide the fact that they were finding classified information in Clinton's emails!
According to the FBI summary, a State Department employee, whose name was redacted, told investigators they believed senior department officials interfered with the screening of Clinton's emails for public release last year in a way that helped Clinton.
The employee, who worked on the screening process, said there was pressure to obscure the fact they were finding classified information in the messages. John Kirby, a State Department spokesman, said in a statement the department "strongly disputes" the claim of interference. Clinton repeatedly said last year she never sent or received classified information, but now says she did not do so knowingly since the release of the FBI findings.
Spokesmen for Clinton did not respond to Reuters' questions about the new interview summaries – and the story will probably be dropped as usual.

Another Aleppo moment #SoDumb

Garry Johnson has another Aleppo moment.

 Gary Johnson: 'I'm having an Aleppo moment'
When Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson was asked to name a single foreign leader who was his favorite, during an MSNBC town hall Wednesday night, he seemed to have an "an Aleppo moment"
"Any one of the continents, any country. Name one foreign leader that your respect and look up to. Anybody," host Chris Matthews pushed during the event, causing Johnson to sigh loudly as his VP pick Bill Weld tried to jump in -saying he loved Shimon Peres(!).
"I guess I'm having an Aleppo moment," Johnson finally said, referring to his recent gaffe on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" when he asked "What is Aleppo?" after he was questioned about how he would handle the conflict in the Syrian city.

One thing is certain Monday nights debate will be one discussed for a long time... However, one of the prominent issues trending on social media is whether or not Hillary Clinton was communicating with Lester Holt during the debate...
According to a viral video titled, “Signaled and Triggered #RiggedDebate,” which was shared yesterday on YouTube, Hillary is clearly seen seemingly signalling Holt to cut to her by subtly scratching her face.

Everyone knows that scratching one’s face is one of the oldest signals in the book. 
You can be sure if this was a blackjack table and the house noticed a player making similar signals to a dealer they’d be investigated.

You can see the video right here:

I am not big on conspiracy theories, but I would like to point to what Rush Limbaugh said this afternoon on his show

"ehh, I dont know, but one thing you can be certain, they are not saying these kind of things about Trump - and that tells us a lot"...

Rosh Hashanah Guide for the Perplexed 2016

Rosh Hashanah Guide for the Perplexed 2016

By Yoram Ettinger

1. Rosh Hashanah is one of four Jewish New Years: (a) Rosh Hashanah, the anniversary of the Creation, the beginning of the Jewish civil calendar (5,777) and the seasons, the setting of the Sabbatical (7th) and the Jubilee (15th) years and the figuring of the annual tithe (10%) on vegetable and grains; (b) the first day of the month of Nissan initiates the three Jewish pilgrimages/festivals (Passover, Pentecost and Tabernacles) and the measuring of the reign of kings; (c) the first day of the month of Elul, the preparations for Rosh Hashanah and the new year for animal tithes in ancient Israel; (d) the 15th day of the month of Shvat, the new year of the trees, which are role-models for human-beings.   

2. Rosh Hashanah – unlike all other Jewish holidays – is a universal (stock-taking, renewal and hopeful) holiday. The Hebrew word “Rosh” (ראש) means "beginning," "first," "head," "chief." The Hebrew letters of Rosh constitute the root of the Hebrew word for Genesis, "Be're'sheet" (בראשית), which is the first/lead word in the Bible. Just like the Creation, so should the New Year and our own actions, be a thoughtful, long-term – not a hasty - process. Rosh Hashanah is celebrated at the beginning of the Jewish month of Tishrei, which means beginning/Genesis in ancient Acadian. The Hebrew spelling of Tishrei (תשרי) is also included in the spelling of Genesis (בראשית). Rosh Hashanah is referred to as "Ha'rat Olam" ("the pregnancy of the world" in Hebrew), and its prayers highlight motherhood, optimism and the pregnancies of Sarah, Rachel and Chana, who gave birth to Isaac, Joseph, Benjamin and Samuel respectively. Noah – who led the rebirth of humanity/world – also features in Rosh Hashanah prayers.

3. The Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashanah- “the beginning of the year” in Hebrew) is compatible with the agricultural calendar. It commences with the planting of seeds and the first rain, which highlights the centrality of the soil in human life. The Hebrew word for soil/earth is Adamah ((אדמה, which stands for humility and encompasses the Hebrew word for a human-being (אדמ, pronounced Adam) - which is also the name of the first human-being – and the Hebrew letter ה, which is an abbreviation of God. The Hebrew word Adam (אדמ) encompasses the Hebrew word for blood (דמ), the liquid of life, and is the acronym of Abraham, David and Moses, three role models of humility.

4.  The term Rosh Hashanah, a day of commemoration, was conceived by Jewish sages, during the Second Temple, referring to the Biblical “day of blowing the shofar (the ritual ram’s horn)” and “the day of commemorating the blowing of the shofar” (Leviticus 23:23-25, Numbers 29:1-6). Commemoration is a prerequisite for national cohesion, survival, enhanced future and refraining from past critical errors. On the other hand, forgetfulness spells ignorance, neglect of critical values and lessons, repeat of past errors and potential oblivion. The blowing of the shofar symbolizes faith in God, the annual judgment day, soul-searching and the constant drive to enhance human conduct (the Hebrew spelling of shofar, שופר, is a derivative of the verb שפר, to enhance/improve).

5. Rosh Hashanah and the shofar symbolize and commemorate:
*The reaffirmation of faith in God as the Supreme King and Judge;
*The first human-being, Adam, was created on Rosh Hashanah, the sixth day of Creation, the first day of the Jewish month of Tishrei;
*The opening of Noah’s Ark following the flood;
*The almost-sacrifice of Isaac (thou shall not sacrifice human beings!) and the Covenant of the Jewish People with God;
*The three Jewish Patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and the Prophet Samuel (the latter inspired Thomas Paine, the author of “Common Sense,” the cement of the American Revolution), were conceived/born during the month of Tishrei, which is called "the month of the strong ones; "
*The release of Joseph from Egyptian jail;
*Mount Sinai, the Ten Commandments and the Torah;
*The commitment to liberty. The blowing of the Shofar introduced the Jubilee Year, “Yovel” (יובל) in Hebrew, which is a synonym for shofar. The blowing of the shofar represents deliverance from spiritual and physical slavery. It inspired the anti-slavery Abolitionist movement in the USA;
*the reconstruction of the 2nd Temple;
*the ingathering (Aliyah) of Jews to the Jewish Homeland;
*the cycle of nature - seed planting season and the equality of day and night;
*Optimism in the face of daily adversity. Genuine repentance and rectifying one's behavior warrants forgiveness;
*The fallibility of all human-beings, starting with Adam and including Moses;
*Humility as a critical attribute which minimizes wrong-doing;
*The “ten days of awe/repentance” which are initiated on Rosh Hashanah and sealed on Yom Kippur.\

*The blowing of the Shofar constitutes a moral wakeup call.
6. The three pillars of Rosh Hashanah are repentance ,(תשובה) which – in Hebrew – means returning to good deeds, prayer (תפילה), whose root is פלל, to yearn/hope/judge, and charity ( ,(צדקהwhich – in Hebrew – means doing justice.

7. On Rosh Hashanah, one is expected to plan a spiritual and behavioral road map for the entire year. The three Hebrew words, Te'shuvah (repentance/atonement, תשובה), Sheevah (a spiritual and physical return, שיבה) and Shabbat (the Creation was completed on the Sabbath, שבת) emerge from the same Hebrew root.  They constitute a triangular foundation, whose strength depends upon the depth of education and commemoration. According to King Solomon, "The triangular cord cannot be broken."

8. The shofar is blown on Rosh Hashanah as a wake-up call, a break away from the professional, social and political mundane, in order to recommit oneself to basic values and enhancing one’s order of priorities.  Blowing the shofar symbolizes a new beginning for each individual and for the Jewish people. The call for moral improvement - at Mount Sinai - was accompanied by the sound of the shofar.

9. The shofar should be humble (bent and not decorated); natural and unassuming, just like Mount Sinai, which is not the highest, or the most impressive, mountain in Sinai. Humility is the foundation of a positive character, in general, and leadership, in particular.

10. The shofar is the epitome of peace-through-strength.  It is made from the horn of a ram, which is a peaceful animal equipped with strong horns to fend off predators. The numerical value of the Hebrew word for "ram," איל, is 41 (א-1, י-10, ל-30), which is equal to the value of "mother" (אם, א-1, ם-40), who strongly protects her children.

11. While the blowing of the shofar is a major virtue, the Torah instructs Jews to listen to the blowing of the shofar. The Hebrew root of "listening," האזנה is Ozen, ear (אוזן), which contains the balancing mechanism in our body (אזון).  Ozen is also the root for "Scale" (מאזניים), which is the zodiac sign of the month of Tishrei.  Both Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur (when people balance their good deeds vs. bad deeds) are observed during the month of Tishrei.

12. The three ways of blowing the shofar express human-being’s inner constant values (Te'kiyah), the tenacious human marathon through success and failure (She'va'rim), and the determined pursuit of faith-driven long-term vision (Troo'ah).

13. The three series of blowing the Shofar represent the faith of mankind in God (Malkhooyot), the centrality of history/commemoration/roots and God's Covenant with the Jewish People (Zichronot), and repentance/enhancement (Shofarot).

14. The three different soundings of the Shofar represent the three Patriarchs (Abraham's tenacity, fighting capabilities and forgiveness; Isaac's benevolence; Jacob's truthfulness), the three parts of the Bible and the three types of human beings (pious, evil and mediocre), all of whom are worthy of a "second chance."

15. Rosh Hashanah services include 101 soundings of the shofar, which is equal to the numerical value of the Hebrew spelling of Michael (מיכאל), one of the four Guardian Angels.

16. The pomegranate - one of the seven species that bless the Land of Israel – is featured during Rosh Hashanah: "May you be credited with as many rewards as the seeds of the pomegranate." The pomegranate ripens in time for Rosh Hashanah and contains - genetically - 613 seeds, which is the number of Jewish statues/laws. The pomegranate was employed as an ornament of the Holy Arc, the holy Menorah (candelabrum), the coat of the High Priest and the Torah Scrolls. The first two letters of the Hebrew word for pomegranate (רמון, pronounced Rimon) – which is known for its crown - mean sublime (Ram, רמ). The pomegranate (skin and seeds) is a uniquely healthy fruit: high in iron, anti-oxidants, anti-cancer. It decreases blood pressure and enhances the quality of blood and the cardiac and digestion systems. Rimon is a Hebrew metaphor for a gifted person: “wholesome like a pomegranate.”

17. Honey is included in Rosh Hashanah meals in order to sweeten the coming year. The bee is the only insect which produces essential food.  It is a community-oriented, constructive and a diligent creature.  The Hebrew spelling of bee (דבורה) is identical to “the word of God” (דבור-ה'), and Devorah דבורה))was one of the seven Jewish prophetesses.

Clinton Snubs Terror Victims

I received this message from Meir Indor, president and founder of Almagor a organization dedicated to the well being and compensation of Israel terror victims. 

"I am forwarding to you text written by a bereaved father, Yossi Zur, whose son was killed in a terror attack done by Hamad in Haifa Israel on 2003. 
Yossi Zur is active in Almagor – Israel’s terror victims organization, Yossi couldn’t see how electing Hilary Clinton would be anything but a turn for the bad in United States, state of Israel relationship.
We have seen in recent years peace initiatives from the White House that ended with no results - other then releasing murderers and terrorists from prison. 
Those initiatives came from the Obama/Kerry/Clinton administrations, and there is a real risk that with the election of Hilary Clinton such policies will continue.
The way I see it, Clinton is looking to win the Nobel prize, and thus she will bring a disaster on Israel, its citizens and to the Jewish settlements in Israel.
Yossi Zur vowed to fight Terrorism in all its forms and make sure nothing similar to what happened to his son, will happen to others in Israel and  
The attached testimony describes Yossi's personal experience from a meeting with Hilary Clinton and should be distributed so that the public will know not only how Clinton “acts” when she is directed by her advisers, but also how she is as a person when she is not in front of cameras".

Here is the text, which was also shared them his Facebook friends Tuesday morning, here.

"On 2003 My son, Assaf, almost 17-years old, was killed in a terror attack in Haifa, Israel, attack orchestrated by Hamas," 

"On 2004, I went with a delegation of families of terror victims to the US, we talked to decision makers, in Congress, Senate and others, the time was when the debate over Israel right for a security fence was at its peak. Israel was taken to the international court in the Hague over the fence. Talking about the need for a fence was very important to us.
"We were welcomed with warmth, with empathy, all heard us and gave us their attention, well, almost everybody."

Tzur goes on to describe the delegation's meeting with Rudy Giuliani. "You could feel the warmth of the man, his humanity, his care," he writes. "You could see tears in his eyes when he told the stories. The meeting was scheduled for an hour, it took almost two hours and then he stood with us patiently taking photos with each and every one."

Giuliani radiating warmth to all attendees 

From New York, the delegation went to Washington for a series of meetings, one of them was in the Senate, with then NY Senator Hilary Clinton. 

Tzur recalls that particular meeting rather vividly - for its shameful obscurity...

"we arrived at her office in the Senate and were shown into a small meeting room, it could hardly fit all of us, it was dark, crowded, it didn’t even have water on the table. So we waited..."

"Time went by, 15 minutes, 30, an hour. Her aides were embarrassed saying she is coming any minute now. After an hour and a half Clinton arrived."

"She looked as us seeing the group in the room, we could see she is not really there with us, we felt she was impatient and just looking to finish it and go. We felt really uncomfortable..."

"Even before we could speak she said, you probably want a photo, come let's go out, leading us to the stairs. There she asked us to stand on the stairs and one of her aides took the photo. We still wanted to talk to her, people came ready to tell her their story, she didn’t intend to hear, it looked she didn’t want to hear..."

"With inhuman coldness she went out amongst us all and disappeared in one of the corridors leaving us shocked and disappointed."

Clinton robotic and cold as ever

Tzur wound up his post by writing a thoughtful message;

"I am not an American citizen and will not vote in the elections, however I had few times the opportunity in Israeli elections to choose the lesser of two evils, so from my small personal experience I will take Giuliani’s advice and support Trump. Personally I am afraid Clinton will cause Israel to miss Obama and I don’t want that either."

We should head his warning and do what we can to make sure Hillary never sees the oval office again. 

This Nov. 8th I know who I am voting for, do you?

Another Potive Ad by Trump Campaign

Another great ad from the Trump Campaign, no slander, no attacks - just hope...

Watch and be inspired. 

Remember you can make a difference... On November 8th get out and Vote

First Presidential Debate: The Morning After

When it comes to debates it rather difficult to discern the outcome, especially when both candidates rush to proclaim a victory. 
While I personally think that Trump under performed, and that Hillary acted like the elitist she is, I still think it was a tie, with a slight edge to Trump. 

I say this because, I feel that by Trump avoiding any major gaffes or outbursts he was able to prove to the american people he is not "unhinged".

Did Lester give Trump a fair shake?

Yes, once tag team Clinton began their attacks on Trump, he seemed on edge, but hey, so would anyone if they were attacked (not on the issues but) personally in front of one third of America. 
Nevertheless, Trump was clearly a fighter, and as AVO and I reflected and agreed post debate, Trump was clearly able to control the room when he had the mic. 
The issue however, was that when he had the mic, he did not go after Hillary's record enough, nor when he did, did he do so hard enough. 
However, with all that said, I refer to Newet Gingrich on Fox News last night, who felt that for Trump the night was a success, According to Newet, "the entire Clinton case [against Trump] is that he is incapable of being president, [yet that] died somewhere on that stage." 
Personally, I think this is because Trump showed - at least on camera - that he genuinely cares about the American people and wants to make America great again - and the American people are buying it.
And lo and behold, the NY Post reported How Trump won over a bar full of undecideds and Democrats because "By the end of the debate, Clinton never said a thing to persuade me that she had anything to offer me or my family or my community", according to the democrat viewers, all she did was come across as either smug or as though she was reading her résumé". One viewer chimed in, “I am a small businessman, a farmer, come from a long line of farmers and coal miners. The policies she talked about tonight ultimately either hurt me or ignore me,”. In other words, Hillary came across robotic and scripted, but Trump failed to exploit it.

Bottom line: Trump can be credited with some good comebacks, and an adequate performance, but at the end of the day, he failed to hit Hillary where it hurts and have that elusive K/O moment. 

Even Bill was loosing it, at some points

In any event, one can not get a good picture of public opinion without referring to post debate polls, and the reactions from people on social media. and so here they are:

One would think the polls speak for themselves, however the main stream media is already rushing to say that its nothing but a farce. According to Time,

"Online reader polls like this one are not statistically representative of likely voters, and are not predictive of the debate outcome will effect the election. They are a measure, however imprecise, of which candidates have the most energized online supporters, or most social media savvy fan base. After all, what they are counting is the number of Internet-devices controlled by people who want to vote".

Personally, I think that its classic MSM talking point, but as the reader you have to decide that...

In any event but one thing is certain, if all these polls do is reflect which candidates have the most energized group of online supporters, then clearly Clinton does not have an energized base, and I am very curious if this will actually be reflected as such come November. 

In the mean time I am looking to the next debate on Oct. 4 th,  where Pence and Kane will be exchanging ideas at Longwood University, Farmville, VA

Breaking: Trump, Capital of Israel - Jerusalem

According to reporting by several news outlets, Trump hosted Israel’s prime minister privately in his gilded Trump Tower apartment on Sunday morning for nearly an hour and a half, where they discussed several topics including, “ Israel’s successful experience with a security fence,”  - which Trump has cited as a model for his proposed US border wall with Mexico. 
According to the reports, Trump and Netanyahu, also discussed “the nuclear deal with Iran, the battle against ISIS and many other regional security concerns.”
Additionally, his campaign said in a statement that.

"Trump acknowledged that Jerusalem has been the eternal capital of the Jewish people for over 3,000 years, and that the US, under a Trump administration, will finally accept the long-standing congressional mandate to recognize Jerusalem as the undivided capital of the state of Israel," 

While others have promised such things in the past, like president Obama in 2008....

We all know where that went...

Yet, while I have little faith in politicians, I think that if there is anyone I trust to do such a thing it would be Trump. 

That being said, we shall wait and see. 

Conservatives Debate on Whose the Republican Candidate: Cruz vs. Kristol

Over the weekend, Ted Cruz has finally found and announced, both personally as well as on his facebook page, that as a conservative and a republican, he was going to vote for Trump - and therefore, if you are are a conservative, a republican, or both, you should do so as well. 

In case you missed it, here is the transcript:

"This election is unlike any other in our nation’s history. Like many other voters, I have struggled to determine the right course of action in this general election.
After many months of careful consideration, of prayer and searching my own conscience, I have decided that on Election Day, I will vote for the Republican nominee, Donald rump.
I’ve made this decision for two reasons. First, last year, I promised to support the Republican nominee. And I intend to keep my word. 
Second, even though I have had areas of significant disagreement with our nominee, by any measure Hillary Clinton is wholly unacceptable — that’s why I have always been #NeverHillary.
Six key policy differences inform my decision. First, and most important, the Supreme Court. For anyone concerned about the Bill of Rights — free speech, religious liberty, the Second Amendment — the Court hangs in the balance. I have spent my professional career fighting before the Court to defend the Constitution. We are only one justice away from losing our most basic rights, and the next president will appoint as many as four new justices. We know, without a doubt, that every Clinton appointee would be a left-wing ideologue. Trump, in contrast, has promised to appoint justices “in the mold of Scalia.”
For some time, I have been seeking greater specificity on this issue, and today the Trump campaign provided that, releasing a very strong list of potential Supreme Court nominees — including Sen. Mike Lee, who would make an extraordinary justice — and making an explicit commitment to nominate only from that list. This commitment matters, and it provides a serious reason for voters to choose to support Trump.
Second, Obamacare. The failed healthcare law is hurting millions of Americans. If Republicans hold Congress, leadership has committed to passing legislation repealing Obamacare. Clinton, we know beyond a shadow of doubt, would veto that legislation. Trump has said he would sign it.
Third, energy. Clinton would continue the Obama administration’s war on coal and relentless efforts to crush the oil and gas industry. Trump has said he will reduce regulations and allow the blossoming American energy renaissance to create millions of new high-paying jobs.
Fourth, immigration. Clinton would continue and even expand President Obama’s lawless executive amnesty. Trump has promised that he would revoke those illegal executive orders.
Fifth, national security. Clinton would continue the Obama administration’s willful blindness to radical Islamic terrorism. She would continue importing Middle Eastern refugees whom the FBI cannot vet to make sure they are not terrorists. Trump has promised to stop the deluge of unvetted refugees.
Sixth, Internet freedom. Clinton supports Obama’s plan to hand over control of the Internet to an international community of stakeholders, including Russia, China, and Iran. Just this week, Trump came out strongly against that plan, and in support of free speech online.
These are six vital issues where the candidates’ positions present a clear choice for the American people.
If Clinton wins, we know — with 100% certainty — that she would deliver on her left-wing promises, with devastating results for our country.
Our country is in crisis. Hillary Clinton is manifestly unfit to be president, and her policies would harm millions of Americans. And Donald Trump is the only thing standing in her way.
A year ago, I pledged to endorse the Republican nominee, and I am honoring that commitment. And if you don’t want to see a Hillary Clinton presidency, I encourage you to vote for him"

So there you have it.  

I am not gonna lie,  I did not think this was going to happen. But if there was one thing this election taught me, always expect the unexpected.  

I never had anything against Cruz, he did bother me much, he was not my first choice, but I respected him nevertheless. Yet when my choice won fair and square I expected him to keep to his words. 
As everyone knows, things did not work out a planned, and Cruz, took the term "taking it personal "to a whole new level with his behavior at the RNC convention...

Let's face it, it was in bad taste. Nevertheless, I am not one to hold grudges, and I welcome the endorsement, and the Trump campaign response - which was classy and respectfull. 

Indeed, enough with the banter, we need to save this country, and bringing about unity in the conservative/ republican base is the right thing to do. 

Let's face it, with reports claiming that 20 percent of republicans are still unsure of who they will vote for (vs the 19 percent of Democrat holdouts for Hillary ), Trump needs all the republican base support he can get, and then some, to win this election. 

This move by Cruz, also helps Cruzes secure his position as a relevant member of the party, as a Trump win will both assist him in his future aspirations in the senate, and beyond - which as a true friend of Israel and a brilliant lawmen is a good thing. 

Yet clearly were not all there yet....

Despite the Cruze endorsement, many #NeverTrumpers, continue to hold out as they are overwhelmed by the details, activly looking to undermine Trumps advances in both local and national polls (Trump currently leads by four points).  

One such example is conservative pundit and Weekly Standard editor, William "Billy" Kristol. Who in an attempt to stay relevant, continues to by grovel at the feat of the left-wing MSM, esposing  his #NeverTrump agenda. 

In an interview with MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle, Kristol claimed  that "if he has a heart", Donald Trump "knows deep in his heart" that he should never be president. 
Sharing his pipe dream, Kristol hopes that "Donald Trump chokes before 100 million people on Monday night". Thus, loosing the election.  
In Kristols mind (who seems to not learn from his previous  failing predictions), "[that w]ould be a fitting capstone to this presidential year."

Yet with all his well wishes for a Hillary win at the debate, it seems that when pressed for a Hillary endorsement, Kristol claims that Hillary is not an option, rather he will in fact be voting for "Evan McMullin, the Republican candidate right now [...] - because [he's] a conservative. Kristol explained that he would be voting as such, because he has, "Problems with Obama’s policy and the [the future of the] Supreme Court". 

I would like to give Billy the benefit of the doubt, but let's face it, does McMullin have even a remote chance?

In short, the answer is no. 

According to recent polls by public polling policy, McMullin is getting 0 percent in Texas, and in his home state Utah, hes not passing Gary Johnson (who gets 10-16 percent), where Trump leads comfortably. 

If this is all in fact true, then what is McMullin if not a spoiler candidate.  Let's face it, McMullin never had a chance. 

This being the case, Kristol is knowingly wasting his vote, literally giving Hillary a free pass to wreak havoc on the supreme court, the middle east, economy and much more.

Some will claim that Kristol has let his ego to cloud his judgment. But is that the way of a conservative? I thought conservatism by default meant taking all variables into consideration and acting accordingly.

With his recent tirades, how Kristol has the gal to call himself a conservative is anyone's guess.
