Wednesdays Wars | Tom Callaghan: A truthful Netanyahu would rip Congress. Like this

Published on Feb 9, 2015

Members of the Congress, honored guests, ladies and gentlemen:

It’s good to be with you for this my third address to a Joint Meeting of Congress. I’m well aware that it is a distinct honor and a rare privilege to address the two houses of Congress in Joint Meeting.


On the plane from Israel, I spent a bit of time studying the history of Joint Meetings, and the people who have spoken before them. The first to speak to a Joint Meeting of Congress was the Marquis de Lafayette of France back in 1824.

He earned the honor of an address to Congress in your Revolutionary War. He fought and was injured at the Battle of Brandywine; spent the brutal winter of 1777-78 with Washington at Valley Forge; and fought alongside Hamilton and Washington at the decisive battle of Yorktown.

Charles Krauthammer and his neo con friends hate it when I speak well of somebody from France. Poor babies. Any student of American history knows the affection the American people had for Lafayette in the early years of the American Republic.

Nelson Mandela has also spoken before you in Joint Meeting. He earned that right by spending 28 years in a South African prison … punishment for his efforts to end the despicable apartheid regime in that country. Mr. Mandela spoke to a Joint Meeting shortly after getting out of prison, and again as President of South Africa.

Mandela’s ability to rise above bitterness and resist the urge to seek revenge on his former tormentors made him one of the giants of the twentieth century. We can all learn a lot from the life of Nelson Mandela.

A number of very distinguished Americans have stood at this rostrum to address prior Joint Meetings of Congress. General Dwight David Eisenhower received the honor twice before being elected president. General Douglas MacArthur, who served with great distinction in World War I, World War II, and Korea, spoke once, as did Fleet Admiral Chester Nimitz who, on September 2, 1945, accepted and signed for The Japanese Instrument of Surrender on board the USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay.

These five men earned the right to appear before you by decades of selfless service to causes greater than themselves.

  1. Callahan: I don’t quite understand why Doug Handshoe provides you a forum for your anti-Semitic and pro-terrorist (YES, Nelson Mandela was a terrorist!) RANTS. Must be something about idealistic notions of being “fair and balanced”, even when defying common sense. Netanyahu was INVITED by the Speaker of the House to address Congress in the aftermath of a vote in November 2014 which was a referendum on the OHOMO Administration’s policies during the past 6 years or so. This just happens to be Netanyahu’s third such invitation. And I’ll concede that the invitation was motivated primarily to EMBARASS OHOMO, who was not consulted in advance. But it also has something to do with the fact that the OHOMO Administration is just a hair’s breadth away from cutting a deal with Iran about that country’s nuclear capabilities. And if history is any indicator, any deal cut by OHOMO will be a BAD DEAL for the United States, and an even WORSE DEAL for Israel, whose total destruction has been advocated by Iran for decades. The negotiations with Iran have been conducted in secret for more than a year by the OHOMO Administration by the “Senior Advisor to the President”, Valerie Jarrett, who is totally unqualified for that position, and who was BORN in Iran. All of this has already “happened” without the advice and consent of Congress. What the politicians who now control both Houses of Congress (as a result of the November 2014 elections in the USA) are hoping is that Netanyahu will reveal “something” about Iran’s nuclear capabilities and intentions (we already KNOW that Iran wants to wipe Israel off the map), that OHOMO has LIED to us about, in addition to recounting Iran’s history in dealing with the USA: The “hostage crisis” during the Carter Administration, their orchestration of the bombing of the Marine barracks in Beruit, their support of terrorism in multiple Middle East countries, and other travesties. And of course, a lot of people hope that Netanyahu will make OHOMO (and Jarrett) look WEAKER and MORE MISGUIDED than they actually are. As for me, I’m looking forward to the speech, which is slated for March 3, 2015. In the meantime, I’m praying that Netanyahu, al Sisi and the King of Jordan will remain “safe”.

    1. Mr. O’Dwyer:

      I hasten to reply to your comment of over two years ago.

      I didn’t respond earlier because I thought you were commenting under an assumed name. I have since determined you actually exist so I’ll give you a few of my thoughts.

      I see you play the anti-Semitic card up front. You’ve put me in good company. The Israeli Government of Menachem Begin accused Ronald Reagan of “anti-Semitism and betrayal” early on in Reagan’s Presidency. Look it up. It’s on Page 416 of Reagan’s Autobiography.

      My opinion of Nelson Mandela differs from yours. I put him in my Top Five Human Beings in the last 100 years.

      I see you are keeping Netanyahu in your prayers. I think he would be amused. I don’t believe he admits to the possibility that a Deity exists.

      I’ll leave you with a couple of thoughts: 1) I’m glad to hear that you admit to the existence of the
      the Deity; 2) I, personally, will be honored to receive your prayers; and 3) I would advise you to offer you thoughts on public affairs before you start Happy Hour rather than after when the brain can best
      be described as “addled”.

      Keep in touch.

  2. CORRECTION: The “Lame Stream Media” (but certainly not Callahan) is now widely reporting that both Speaker of the House John Boehner and Benjamin Netanyahu contacted the White House about the speech BEFORE Netanyahu accepted Boehner’s invitation. AND, the Congressional Black Caucus (what would the LSM say about a “Congressional WHITE Caucus”?) is now making Netanhayu’s speech a “racial” issue, on the grounds that OHOMO is a Negro and Netanyahu is Caucasian (or would “Semite” be more accurate?). Ashton O’Dwyer.

      1. I would hardly ascribe a principled stance to a kleptocrat who refused to voice a word against an outrage which occurred on his watch.

        But then, I guess I am just one of those malcontents who detests hypocricy by whomever practiced.

        1. If you’re speaking about Operation Keelhaul, as near as I can tell that deal was done at Yalta by Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin.

          1. History records that Eisenhower was “in the know,” Callahan, and refusing to address the issue marks him as merely an opportunist. That said, he’s one of those who gets religion after he had opportunity to do something.

            Likewise your girl Pelosi. She’s a prime time example of a kleptocrat who may have had some dislike for Israel, more likely than not to simply pander to her perverse voters who wouldn’t know the difference between Sharia and Talmudic law even as the sword severs the head from the body.

  3. Tom Callahan:

    Bout Obama like Eisenhower both winning twice by 51% of vote – there’s a logical explanation for that.

    Eisenhower was a popular white military hero and in the fifties there was never a “white block vote” recognized. Thus Eisenhower did not win by any racial white block vote.

    However, with Obama being a black/white organizer there was certainly a 90-95% ” black block vote” in both elections despite high unemployment and other unpopular performance issues.

    In other words, without the black block vote and the Latinos majority vote recognizing Obama was again getting ready to cause another massive influx of undocumented, illegal Latinos ( an infants), Obama doesn’t win either election.

    Finally in the 2014 Congressional election we saw a higher white turnout and if you want to call it a white block vote so be it. And I pray it becomes as recognized as the black block vote in future elections so the liberal/ democratic political enslavement of the blacks becomes recognized by all voting blacks. Once the blacks like Ben Carson wake the blacks up to their democratic party enslavement the black block vote will be reduced considerably and they will become more productive and less government dependent.

    Thus I say – Ben Carson FOR PRESIDENT !He has the guts and will to tell it like it is and to bring better charter schools to the blacks and deal with the collapse of the American black family instead of Obama bringing racial class separation and divide in both his administrations.
