Palestinian Path to Citizenship in Israel 

Many Israeli's, including former Shiloh, Israel Mayor David Rubin, are concluding that the two-state solution is dead. This is becoming more apparent in light of Israel's recent war with Hamas and the proliferation of world-wide radical Islamic militias such as al Qaeda, ISIS and Boko Haram.

I support a one-state solution for Israel by which the Israeli government would offer a path to citizenship for Palestinian Arabs living on what the western media calls the West Bank. Palestinian residents living there ought to be offered full Israeli citizenship and integration into Israeli society if they fulfill certain conditions.

In the same way that new American citizens are required to take a loyalty oath to the United States, to uphold the Constitution, and to study American history and politics, Palestinians applying for Israeli citizenship should be required to participate in a 1-2 year educational program where they would learn Israeli history, politics and Bible in the same way that Israelis study this in school. If they pass the course, they would then be required to take a loyalty oath to the Jewish State. The new Israeli citizens would then be required to fulfill the same obligations as other Israeli citizens including some form of national service.

Palestinians who are not interested in participating in this voluntary opportunity should be encouraged to leave Israel and funds should be raised and made available to them with assistance in terms of their finding a new home in one of the vast and often oil-rich Arab countries. This would also be a voluntary program which would mean that any accusation that Israel is engaging in a policy of ethnic cleansing would be false.

Those Palestinian Arabs who refuse to participate would continue to live their lives as non-citizens in Israel as long as they avoided seditious activities. Such involvement by them in such seditious activities might lead to prison or expulsion for them and their families. Variations of this policy toward sedition is part of the basic laws of every other nation on earth.

Some Palestinian activists are on record as suggesting that they are actually the true Jews going back thousands of years. Putting aside the questionable nature of these claims, I would suggest that perhaps Palestinians today ought to consider coming full circle and fully participating in Israeli society and in the Jewish spiritual mission in Israel by undergoing conversion to Judaism.

BARNEY FRANK'S GHOST

While Barney Frank is finally gone and forgotten, his ghost still lurks as the anniversary of the September 11th 2001 attack approaches and the military raises the terror threat to Defcon 3.

The infiltration of radical Islamic terrorists into America was not an accident. I became aware of Frank's legislation which swung open the doors to terrorists while reading the following astonishing passage in Why America Slept- The Failure to Prevent 9/11 by Gerald Posner:

Congressman Barney Frank, the Massachusetts Democrat who was a strong advocate of protecting civil liberties, led a successful effort to amend the Immigration and Nationality Act so that membership in a terrorist group was no longer sufficient to deny a visa.
Under Frank’s amendment, which seems unthinkable post 9/11, a visa could only be denied if the government could prove that the applicant had committed an act of terrorism. Rendered toothless by the Frank amendment, the Reagan Administration had virtually no way to block entry visas even when there was information linking the individuals to terrorist groups.

As his congressional opponent in the 2004 election, I discovered that Frank sponsored no less than thirteen amendments to the Immigration and Nationality Act which opened the floodgates to well disciplined, well organized networks of terror sleeper cells and supporters who have since become entrenched.

Clinton Administration CIA Director R. James Woolsey said this about the Frank Amendment in an interview with the Wall Street Journal: 

Congress had made it illegal to deny visas to members of terrorist groups.

The Frank Amendment of 1989 declared that a foreigner could not be denied a visa because of his ideology, which meant that that no matter how repugnant, hostile, or undemocratic an individual’s politics, these could not be grounds for denying him entry into the United States. Frank probably thought that such denial of entry to a foreigner might be discriminatory. 

Frank defended his amendment on his own congressional website:

The bill (Patriot Act) would have allowed the exclusion of visa applicants who had 'endorsed or espoused terrorist activity'...but the mere espousal or endorsement of terrorist activity casts far too wide a net of exclusion.

How tolerant! How discerning!  

The Frank Amendment made it difficult for government officials to prove a connection between the visa applicant and terrorist activities. Mere association with a group deemed to be involved with terrorism would no longer be enough to deny a visa.
I discovered that the 9/11 highjackers entered the country legally after the Frank Amendment went into effect. I also discovered that Frank had pushed through additional legislation that expanded the student visa program, watering down standards and weakening enforcement, laws that hamstrung overseas embassies ability to deny visas and laws that made it difficult for the FBI and CIA to share information.   

Sheik Omar, the blind Sheik, leader of the first World Trade Center bombing benefited from the Frank Amendment as his terrorist cell received visas because there was no indisputable proof that they had committed past terrorist acts. Under the Frank Amendment, they could not be denied visas. American counselor officials in the Middle East, along with the FBI and CIA, could do little to stop Sheik Rahman from entering the country.

We might think we see strange apparitions of Barney Frank's ghost when we hear about ISIS sleeper cells recruiting Muslims in American Mosques or radical Imam's sending out bombers.

Welfare rates keep climbing

Texas businessman and American Citizen Party 2016 presidential candidate Bob McNeil is sounding the alarm over new statistics that indicate that, according to the US Census Bureau 4th quarter report on 2012, over a third of American households are now on some sort of Federal welfare program.  "The drop in poverty in this country stopped when welfare kicked in due to the 1960's era Johnson Administration War on Poverty" observes McNeil. "Since then, notes McNeil, the number of people the government pays not to work has continued to grow and it is now reaching astronomical rates under Obama.

"This problem, predicts McNeil, is about to get a lot worse if President Obama signs an amnesty bill which he is threatening to do as an executive order which, in and of itself, raises constitutional questions to put it mildly. The problem will no doubt become further exacerbated as Obamacare kicks in with its massive taxpayer funded subsidies. 

The costs to the American taxpayer are enormous as working people are forced to shoulder the burden for a growing non productive segment of society and the social consequences of paying people not to work are also quite dire as the record indicates a parallel between idle men handed over government money and a rise in crime, drug abuse and broken families.

McNeil says that the answer is a savings based economy and pro-business policies that stimulate investment and jobs while eliminating the dole to those who President Ronald Reagan once described as the "truly needy."   

Bob McNeil BIOGRAPHY IN A LETTER TO AMERICA:
Hello America,
My name is Bob McNeil, founder of the American Citizen Party, and candidate for President of the United States in 2016.
I describe myself as “an ordinary man living an extraordinary life”.
I am:
  • A professional business consultant with an accounting degree and 35 years of experience auditing multi-billion dollar corporations, here in the United States, and in a number of countries around the world.
  • A veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps from 1968 through 1974.
  • A father of two daughters.
  • A grandfather of three beautiful children.
  • A trusted friend to many.
I have been disillusioned with our two-party political system for quite a while now, but, rather than complain about it, I decided to do something about it.
So, using a lifetime of experience, plus the analytical skills I have acquired during my career as a professional auditor, I set out to write a plan that would spark the “21st Century American Revolution”.
Knowing the dangers of that exercise from the people in power, and to ensure its success, I established the following criteria for the plan:
  • It must be constitutional;
  • It must be peaceful;
  • It must transcend race, religion, age, gender, political affiliation, economic status, and all other things that the politicians and the media  use to divide us as a nation, and;
  • It must restore liberty and prosperity to ALL American citizens.
In 2008, after one year of research and writing, I emerged with the plan.  I formed the American Citizen Party in 2009 to serve as the platform from which to implement it, and have talked to millions of Americans about it in person, on the radio and in my blogs since then.
Now, it is time to go nationwide in order to build momentum for the 2014 election and my 2016 Presidential run.
If you yearn for liberty and prosperity like you’ve never before experienced, this is the political party you’ve been searching for.
Get involved.  Sign up with your email address to receive my blogs. Contribute money to further the cause of liberty for yourself, your children, and future generations of Americans.
Together, we can, and we will, take back our country and restore it to its greatness.
The only way my plan will fail is if you continue to vote Democrats and Republicans into office, or worse, if you do nothing.
Take charge of your future.  If you don’t, someone else will.
In freedom,
Bob McNeil

Education Malpractice for Black Children

 The trend toward a nationalized education has been particularly hurtful to black children, notes Lloyd Marcus who is concerned over the needless drop in literacy rates and the virtual absence of moral standards in our inner city schools where black children are most vulnerable.

Literacy rates are down and crime rates are up due to the replacement of such common sense means of teaching reading as phonics which has been replaced by a mind numbing process that forces young people to memorize thousands of words as if they are pictures. The edu-crats hide this crime against our young by calling this malpractice by various names including whole language look-say.

They have replaced moral and ethical standards with such things as "values clarification" and other bogus program that essentially teach that morality is nothing more than what you think it is and to say otherwise, to suggest that their is such a thing as objective moral standards is a form of prejudice.

Other methods foisted on the impressionable minds of our young and impressionable include such frauds as the new-new math, guessing instead of spelling, the elimination of cursive writing and the virtual extinction of any teaching of the founding documents of America and their importance. 

No wonder our young, particularly our inner city lack young who increasingly come from a single parent household and who don't get the attention they deserve, are acting out with drugs, sex and crime. Our young black students deserve a lot better than what the well-heeled establishment education elite is dishing out notes Lloyd Marcus.

No Surprise: Crime drops in Chicago while Gun applications surge
Now that Chicago is finally issuing concealed carry gun permits crime is dropping notes Alan Gottlieb,Chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms and Founder of the Second Amendment Foundation. I've been saying this for years and now, once again, I've been proven right. My sense of jubulence over this victory for freedom is tempered, however, when I think of all the victims that might have been saved if Chicago had acted sooner notes Gottlieb.
The Washington Times has reported that burglary is down 20%, car thefts are down 26% and the homicide rate is at a 56 year low since the ban was lifted on concealed carry permits. 
Gottlieb notes the obvious when he points out that with concealed carry the potential criminals don't know who might be armed when they consider engaging in a crime. This has proven over and over again to be a natural deterrent says Gottlieb. 
The response by the public has been overwhelmingly positive with applications for gun training, which is a requirement for the permit, is surging. 
Chicago is moving in the right direction as it responds to the previously unprecedented rise in crime and homicide that gave the city, with over 500 murders in 2012, the moniker of murder capital of America. Gun laws had been so restrictive that Museums in Chicago were banned from displaying unloaded antique guns. 
At last, Gottlieb exults, the people of Chicago are no longer allowing themselves to be like sitting ducks for violent criminals as they take appropriate actions to defend themselves.
