It's the same in any lingo

בַּת-בָּבֶל, הַשְּׁדוּדָה: אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיְשַׁלֶּם-לָךְ-- אֶת-גְּמוּלֵךְ, שֶׁגָּמַלְתּ לָנוּ

How can one be compelled to accept slavery? I simply refuse to do the master's bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I who am the victor and not he, for he has failed in getting me to do what he wanted done. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? If not now, when? ~ Rav Hillel, Pirke Avot

The Good Soldier Marches On (UPDATED With New Clinton Deception)

So I slept through the Clinton interview on "This Week" but went to the website to watch the pertinent clips. Frankly, it was sad. I'm starting to think that Pajama threatened to appoint Monica Lewinsky Deputy Secretary if she didn't go out and be his robot.

George, classy as always, made her answer the 3 AM question. Has Pampers crossed the threshold? But of course said Madame Secretary. He's been very "decisive." As I recall, that was not the standard the ad was questioning. More importantly it called in to question how this inexperienced nave would act in the face of a crisis. Exactly what crisis has been faced by the Resident? Was his basketball slightly deflated? Did his banker pals spend all their money on platinum plated jukeboxes and donkey basketball franchises? Perhaps the crisis was Gaffey Duck sticking his foot in his mouth again about Indians and 7-11s.

The fact is that the closest thing to a crisis that has crossed his desk is Pakistan and that was handled with the alacrity of a tree sloth, and wasn't really 3 AM crisis level, and he didn't really do anything. Oh, North Korea tested more missiles and detonated a Hiroshima sized bomb underground. The Pampers reaction? Call the UNSC, and tell Russia and China to handle it. Very tough...very decisive. We haven't had any levees break, or any man made disaster contingencies. Probably his biggest crisis is that he can't seem to get Netanyahu to give him a rim job.

Obviously she couldn't say no to the question, which of course Georgie knew, but she could have said something like, "Well, we've been fortunate in that we have not had to deal with the kind of crisis that this ad implied, but Pampers has been firm in his decision making so I think if the 3 AM moment came he could handle it." I would still puke, but at least it would acknowledge that flying around the world apologizing and appeasing, shooting hoops, and bilking the taxpayers to enrich ACORN and bankers does not constitute a crisis.

But let's get to the heart of the matter: Israel.

When asked about previous agreements with the Shrub administration on settlements Clinton is on record saying:
"There is no memory of any informal and oral agreements. If they did occur, which of course people say they did, they did not become part of the official position of the United States government."
Without so much as batting an eye, she is now acknowledging that there were oral agreements, but that no one in the outgoing administration of any importance made mention of them so...oh well...sorry Israel. Any guesses how long it will be before a former Shrub administration official steps up and says that they briefed them on this agreement? Certainly the Shrub letter of 2004 is a written document, by the new Clinton standard that should qualify. But there are these contradictory documents she keeps talking about that nullify this whole thing. Where exactly are those Hillary? What is contained in them?

Way to go with the follow up questions Georgie. Ya know you could have spent the half hour feeding her danish. That would have at least been substantial.

Clinton also assured us that the Pajama is not attempting to bring down Netanyahu's government. But that's exactly what Rahm Emmanuel helped James Carville do under Bill Clinton. Remember that Carville went to Israel to handle Barak's opposition to Bibi who was not playing ball in helping Israel commit suicide. Why everyone thinks Emmanuel is a friend of Israel I will never know. He's a Jewish leftist. He's a friend to an agenda, not a Jewish state.

[UPDATE] Ms. Geller over at Atlas received a tip that casts a light on this being another Clinton deception. Apparently, Team Pajama is coming to the conclusion that achieving Israeli national suicide will not be achieved with a Netanyahu led government, and they are not sitting still:
U.S. sources, including those close to the Obama administration, said such cooperation would be greater by an Israeli government led by the opposition Kadima Party, chaired by former Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni.

"It may be that the Obama administration has concluded that they cannot achieve the two-state solution with the Netanyahu government and perhaps want another Israeli prime minister," Aaron Miller, a former State Department official and regarded as a consultant to the administration, told the Saudi-owned A-Sharq Al Awsat.

"And the best way to do this is to make Netanyahu appear incapable of managing Israel's most important relations in the world, which is its relations with the United States."
As I have mentioned in previous posts, that plan is not working very well as polling is clearly indicating that the Israeli public is rallying behind Netanyahu. Yes, Livni's Kadima Party was the single party vote winner, but the majority of Israelis voted for right wing parties which are known to be more stalwart on Israeli security matters, and more willing to resist outside pronouncements like we are seeing from Team Pajama. But Team Pajama is ignoring this fact entirely. The desires of the Israeli electorate mean nothing to the Resident. Funny, I keep remembering him campaigning against such things that the Shrub administration was known for. We were supposed to have "change" and respect the desires of the citizens of other countries. Apparently the exception to the rule is Israel. What a fucking surprise.

The article goes on to expose the Clinton deception:
The sources said Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and other senior administration officials have been in steady contact with Ms. Livni, whose Kadima Party won the most seats in Knesset elections in 2009 but failed to form a coalition majority. They said the administration also envisions any post-Netanyahu government as retaining Ehud Barak as defense minister.

On June 2, Barak met Obama for 15 minutes in an unannounced meeting at the White House. Obama walked into a session between the Israeli defense minister and National Security Advisor James Jones in what the sources said was meant to demonstrate the president's endorsement of Barak's policy of destroying unauthorized Jewish communities in the West Bank.
So the State Department is in regular contact with Netanyahu's opposition, but don't worry...nothing shady going on...they're just exchanging recipes for kasha and varnishkes. Whatever chicanery is being perpetrated by Team Pajama against the Netanyahu government, and by default, the will of the Israeli electorate, Secretary Clinton is very much involved in it. There is no getting around it. Anyone who doesn't see it is living in serious denial and frankly, is moving into Obot territory.

Then came the subject of Iran. Madame Secretary, would the United States retaliate if Iran launched a nuclear attack against Israel. Answer?

"There would be retaliation."

"From the United States?"

"There would be retaliation."

She would not specify the United States. She sorta implied NATO. She implied that Iran's nuclear ambitions would cause her neighbors to acquire them which would serve as a deterrent. Yeah, I can really see the Saudis nuking Iran over Israel. So thanks for confirming what we already knew Hillary; no American umbrella of protection for Israel vis a vis Iranian nukes. Thanks, friend.

Save what's left of your soul Hillary. Resign now.

When she was campaigning she was asked what wuold happen if Iran nuked Israel and she said
"they would be obliterated" , but I am sure you remember that.

I still wish she was president.

I have not walked a mile in her shoes either .. but she appears to be under some constraint that is not pleasant .

OT- I'm watching Cheney lie through his teeth about 9/11 with a complete straight face.

Just goes to prove they all need to be sent home, do not pass go, do not collect $2 Billion

Swan, she's free to walk away at any time. And as the update I have presented here clearly shows, she is actively complicit in Team Pajama's attempt to destabilize the Netanyahu government, despite the fact that the Israeli electorate voted for a right wing government.

I have to ask the this the hope and change y'all were talking about? Oh, wait, y'all support destroying bad.

Honestly as bad as Bush was Barry is so much worse. As for Hillary she can kiss my lily white ass. Am I surprised that there are back door shenanigans going on ? Not at all. I was certain Barry would try to upset Bibi's government and have it thrown over.

Yes Barryboy wants to destroy Israel. He did offer his personal gurantee to all of Islam in that piece of shit speech last week. Barrboy doesn't care what happens to anyone else.
