Britain and Obama’s ‘back of the Queue – WSJ

Found this on the WSJ from RA – CA

Given the serial insults to our shared Anglo -Saxon heritage by the Marxist indoctrinated Obama, we are to be excused if we have become numb to his abuse.
Less we forget, his first official act the day following his inauguration was to march back to the Oval Office and summarily return the bust of Churchill given to President Bush by Tony Blair, a sign of the infinite ties between our nations in a time of war. He has sneered at our timeless traditions and values.
With the common arrogance of his alleged father, Mau-mau loving Islamist Obama Sr. , his disregard of England is as insulting as the shameful gifts he bore in a visit to Queen Elizabeth recently.

Now is his latest intrusion into the sovereign decisions of this great Island, a staunch allie to the United States, he is threatening retribution should we follow the course of our hearts and minds and frankly sane logic, and break free from the lies and corruption that the EU has predictably become.
His reflexes are now always predictable and constantly remind us of his indoctrination : TYRANNY BEFORE FREEDOM , FOES BEFORE ALLIES.

Eventually we will awake from the reflex of decency and rationalisation of his actions as being confused or wrong footed for these presume he is on our side ; he is not and never has been.
His actions are those of one inimical to our best interests.
From Israel to England any attempt to assert these interests is met with the same venom.
Far from being at “the back of any queue ” England is and will remain shoulder to shoulder with America despite the presumption of tyrannical imposition by this pretender. As Mr. ROBERTS clearly states, should the English people decide in their best interest to “leave” as allie and major trading partner natural adjustments will be made by our fellow allies to insure a seamless transition. Only an enemy would react in this manner and no matter his intent not even Mr. Obama will alter the course of We ” the English speaking peoples” and our traditions of freedom for all.

Israel to Place Gorillas Near Gaza; Hopes Int’l Community Will Care About Rocket Attacks

Looking to raise awareness and concern over the flood of rockets launched from the Gaza Strip for the past decade, Israel has decided to place gorillas throughout the communities and neighboring towns surrounding Gaza.

“For years we’ve highlighted the deaths of innocent men, women, and children from these rockets, but people throughout Europe and on college campuses in the U.S. continued to support Hamas,” a spokesman for the Israeli government told The Mideast Beast. “After seeing the outpouring of anger over the death of Harambe the gorilla, we realized we’ve been doing it all wrong.”

Israel will now place a handful of gorillas in Ashdod, Ashkelon, Sderot and other communities in the south that have seen a high number of rocket attacks. While Hamas publicly insists the move won’t change its military approach, some Hamas commanders expressed concern in private conversations.

“If one of our rockets were to kill a gorilla, we would completely alienate our core support base of 18 to 22-year-old left-wing American Facebook commenters,” one senior Hamas official told The Mideast Beast off record. “That’s not a risk we can take lightly.”

In response, Hamas has announced plans to acquire relatives of Cecil the Lion to place in Gaza neighborhoods in order to encourage Israeli airstrikes. “Using Cecil’s relatives as human shields will certainly work to help us convince the international community to ostracize Israel, as it has the dentist who killed Cecil. Plus, we’ll have more children around whose spare hands we could use to dig tunnels. So, you know, win–win!”

At Odds Publicly, Donald Trump and Karl Rove Hold a Private Meeting

An unexpected RA photo find – CA

The Republican strategist Karl Rove helped steer George W. Bush to victory in two presidential elections.

The Republican strategist Karl Rove helped steer George W. Bush to victory in two presidential elections.

Karl Rove, the architect of George W. Bush’s victorious presidential campaigns and founder of a constellation of political fund-raising groups, has called Donald J. Trump “a complete idiot.” He has described him as “graceless and divisive.” He has said Mr. Trump’s boasts about beating Hillary Clinton in the polls are false.

Mr. Trump has reacted with anger to such insults, calling Mr. Rove “sad” and questioning his record of success.

But two weeks ago, Mr. Trump and Mr. Rove held a private meeting just as the presumptive Republican nominee was courting major party figures.

The meeting took place at the Manhattan home of the casino magnate Steve Wynn, a mutual friend who brokered the get-together, according to two people briefed on the meeting and who were granted anonymity to discuss the gathering.

Mr. Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, described it as a “good meeting,” but did not elaborate. An aide to Mr. Wynn did not respond to an email seeking comment, and Mr. Rove similarly declined to respond.

The purpose of the meeting was unclear, although Mr. Rove is the last strategist to help elect a Republican president, and Mr. Trump is lagging organizationally for the general election.

If détente was the goal, the meeting did not appear to have a lasting effect: the morning after Mr. Trump’s freewheeling, media-bashing news conference last Tuesday, Mr. Rove was deeply critical of his performance.

“I’m not certain it helps him with the people who are swing voters, up for grabs, and it certainly is very unpresidential,” Mr. Rove said on Fox News. “It would not be a good spectacle for our country to have a President Trump acting like candidate Trump acted yesterday.”

The tense relationship between Mr. Trump and Mr. Rove has deeper significance than just resolving their public sparring. Mr. Rove has longstanding relationships with many of the party’s biggest donors, and has intricate knowledge of how “super PACs” can help elect candidates.

Mr. Rove also has a long relationship with Sheldon Adelson, another casino magnate who has said he would spend upward of $100 million to back Mr. Trump. Mr. Adelson and Mr. Trump met on Tuesday, their second meeting in the last few weeks.

Mr. Rove has talked with Mr. Adelson about what super PAC to use as a vehicle for donating such a large sum of money to support Mr. Trump, including possibly using the Crossroads fund-raising groups, which he helped establish, according to people with knowledge of the discussions.

Mr. Adelson is also discussing the possibility of creating a new entity that would back Mr. Trump, and has been holding talks with Nick Ayers, the former executive director of the Republican Governors Association, according to two people briefed on the discussions. Mr. Ayers’s involvement was first reported by the website Politico.

Creating a new group would give Mr. Adelson more control over how his money is spent, at a moment when there are a number of super PACs that either exist or are being formed to support Mr. Trump’s bid. Other major donors, such as Rebekah Mercer, who supported the presidential campaign of Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, are considering backing Mr. Trump through other super PACs.

Super PACs cannot coordinate with campaigns, and, so far, the Trump campaign hasn’t signaled formally whether any group has its tacit blessing. In two cases, former aides to the campaign have gone to work for super PACs that support Mr. Trump, despite “cooling-off periods” mandated by campaign finance laws when transitions like that take place.

There is one super PAC supporting Mr. Trump that is run by a former aide to Ben Carson. Another proposed group, which would be backed by Tom Barrack, a financier and close friend of Mr. Trump, was created on Thursday, with more than $30 million in commitments, according to CNN.

Another group is being advised by Edward J. Rollins, the strategist who was Ronald Reagan’s campaign manager and has deep ties to the Republican Party.

That group has faced scrutiny over its ad-buying practices, although it has donor meetings planned with prominent figures such as the financier Julian H. Robertson Jr. But in a recent meeting with Mr. Trump, former Secretary of State James A. Baker III was critical of Mr. Rollins, according to two people briefed on the exchange.

Mr. Rollins and Mr. Baker were rivals during the 1980 primary race between Mr. Reagan and the elder George Bush. In an email, Mr. Rollins said he had signed on to help in an unusual year.

“If others think they can do it better, have at it!” said Mr. Rollins in an email. “It is going to be a tough and expensive campaign and I would assume Mr. Trump and his team would want all the help they can get!”
