Ted Cruz is truly the only Republican with any balls (for the record, it’s a foregone conclusion that no Dems have any) and the only one who deserves the GOP Presidential nomination in the near future. He demonstrates his courage time and again no matter the issue. And this time, he’s doing so by putting a hold on all Obama State Department nominees, until the Obama Administration answers questions regarding why it is sending $47 million in additional funds to HAMAS and why it grounded Israeli flights in a manner that can only have been meant to hurt Israeli tourism.
As you may know, despite HAMAS’ daily rocket barrage on Israel, your tax money is going to fund at least $47 million in aid to HAMAS from the United States. Just like the millions the Bush Administration sent to Hezbollah-controlled South Lebanon (all of which was doled out by Hezbollah) when Hezbollah went to war against Israel in 2006, the Obama Administration insists on showering your money on HAMAS in an identical fashion.
And as for the Obama FAA diversion of all flights to Israel this week, here’s a tip: despite the rockets falling, I’d feel safer landing in Israel at Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport than I would at any airport in the United States. Israel, for instance, doesn’t have the laser pointer problems. By the way, have you ever tried landing in Ukraine? Or Nigeria? Or Yemen? Uh-huh, those places are soooooo safe. Right?
