Illusions- The condition of being deceived by a false perception or belief. An erroneous perception of reality.
Justice- The principle or ideal of just dealing or right action conformity to this principle or ideal, righteousness the justice of their cause.
I confess, I’m one of those poor sods who like to see the best in people I’m close to. I make excuses for them, I try to overlook things, make allowances, tell myself it doesn’t matter, it was an accident and so on and so for ad nauseam. I’ve come to the conclusion that is a very naive way to live, and that there is a better than good chance you will end up getting blind-sided. Then you do the “it’s probably not how it looks, they didn’t mean it” and now you are deceiving yourself, they don’t even have to do it for themselves, you do it for them. How accommodating! Choosing to live with an illusion is a very counter productive, and frankly stupid way to live. Not only are you not able to accomplish things you could be working on, you’re probably working on things you don’t need to be so you’re wasting your valuable time. It can also be fatal. But, I’m far from the only one that struggles with this. Whole segments of populations and countries do as well.
Let’s take a little look at the modern Demoncratic party, the party of the working man as it is thought to be. This is from a email, but I’ll add to it.
Congress was sworn in, and all day long, the media was salivating and fawning over the “remarkable diversity” of the new Democrat members. It was a day of “firsts,” we were told. It was indeed a day of many firsts. While the new Democrat majority offers many members of note, we wanted to highlight a few “firsts” who are examples of the “diversity” that was sworn in today.
The first person who married her brother – in order to commit immigration fraud – ever be elected to Congress. Omar is also the first open supporter of female genital mutilation to ever be elected to Congress. Amazing diversity!
#2. Rashida Tlaib
One of the first Muslim Brotherhood-linked and anti-Semitic candidates to be elected to Congress. She also claims to be a “Palestinian.” And she knows how to swear. Tlaib quote: “Impeach the Mother F_ _ _ _ _ _ President” (First words out of her mouth after being sworn in.)
#3. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
Let’s just say she’s the first person elected to Congress who lied about being from the Bronx, and thus,made up her life story. She’s also an overt Marxist. (Not even covert!)
#4. Abigail Spanberger
The first substitute teacher from an Islamist school (nicknamed by law enforcers as ‘terror high’) ever to be elected to Congress.
#5. Donna Shalala
Rep. Shalala was HHS Secretary from 1993 to 2001 under Bill Clinton and worked from 2015 to 2017 at the Clinton Foundation, and in 2016 she admitted in an interview that some significant Clinton Foundation donors received “courtesy appointments” in the Clinton State Department. To top it off,apparently she can’t let go of politics: at 78, she’s the oldest female House freshman in history.
There is is a lot of value put on these important “firsts”. I think if this is the sort of the thing the Demoncratic party values, every person has historic “firsts” they could celebrate that are worthy of joy similar to the election and value of these Demoncratic women.
Your “first” car wreck, the “first” time you get beat up, the “first” time you get robbed, the “first” time you bounce a check, the “first” time you get thrown off your horse, the “first” time you’re lied to by someone you trusted, the “first” time you lose a loved one. All are notable firsts, and if the Demoncrats have a bar that low, well then, I’ve given them more.
So what do these remarkably “diverse” women bring to the table? Anti-semitic, anti-Israel, anti-women’s rights, anti-self defense, anti-freedom. See, they’re against all the good stuff and in lock step with what Nanny Pelosi tells them.. For now, I don’t think she’ll be able to keep them in lock step all that long.
And for the Somali Omar,
The Curious Case of Ilhan Omar, This one is very interesting.
One only has to look at how well the Somalis have integrated into the communities where obama dumped them to understand that importing the Somali way of life into American politics is a really bad idea. Or you could just look at how it’s playing out in Germany. Or Sweden.
For a shot of truth for the Falistinian Tlaib,
The Israeli military has expressed growing concern over a new phenomenon that sees Palestinian parents from Gaza enter Israel to take their children for medical treatment, only to abandon those same children at the Gaza border and disappear.
These are folks who receive official permits from Israel to bring their suffering children for free medical treatment (oh, those nasty Zionists!), and then leave those children at the border, hoping someone will pick them up and care for them.
Either way, the parent(s) in question are more concerned about their own well-being, which they know, contrary to what’s portrayed in the mainstream media, can be best provided for in the Jewish state.
Because the news media #MSM #MediaBias #FakeNews is so good at covering what’s really going on it Israel. IN PHOTOS: ‘Peaceful’ Palestinian Protest at the Gaza Border
But the media has been very, very busy of late. None stop coverage of a heinous even that happened recently. A vicious attack on a defenseless person. It was horrible. And the media covered it in great detail as well as what has happened afterwards. I’m talking about Ori Ansbacher HY’’D.
A beautiful 19-year-old girl, Ori Ansbacher’s remains were found in the Ein Yael forest, south of Jerusalem. Her body was naked with multiple stab wounds to the upper torso.
Ori was a volunteer at a youth center in Jerusalem, she had gone for a walk to the Jerusalem forest to be alone after an argument.
She was spotted by a terrorist who had come into Israel illegally to kill Jews. Yeah, actually I do know what was in his mind. I’ll get to that. She was raped and stabbed repeatedly.
So what is known about the Bucket O’Chum that killed her?
“I want to be a Shaheed,” he declared at the time. When the interrogator asked him how he intended to become a Shaheed, the suspect replied, “I will do it again, I will buy a knife again and I will come back here to go to jail or be a Shaheed. I will do anything in order to go to jail. And if you release me, I’ll come here with a knife and I’ll be a Shaheed.”
I can’t begin to tell you how much I want to correct the spelling on that “shaheed” to more accurately reflect the proper word for this piece of human excrement. He smirked happily for the camera, and helpfully re-enacted the crime for the Israeli police.
And, have you heard any of the harpies on The View mourning Ori? Ms. Madcow? Anyone? Linda Sarsour decrying the violence against women? Any of the pink hatted harridans? No?
Well, the arabs in the Israeli Knesset didn’t either. They didn’t condemn the act, nope MK Aida Touma-Sliman claims Ori Ansbacher murder a heinous crime and shouldn’t stain struggle of ‘Palestinian people’. It wasn’t an act of terror by someone raised and educated to hate Jews, it was a “gender crime”.
I much prefer the response of MK Bezalel Smotrich,
“This despicable terrorist must die, his home must be destroyed, and his family must be deported here and now, without the High Court and without B’Tselem. Simply because our lives come first.”
Why, there’s even talk that Israel may cut back the amount of money the give the Falestinian Authority (FA) by a few million. That’s money the FA uses to pay the families of the people that kill Jews, or are killed trying. Yep, Israel pays for the arabs to kill Jews.
Some people labor under the illusion that the arabs are “peace partners”. The arab MK in the Knesset that called it a gender crime isn’t even honest enough to admit what it really is, and instead tries to use the horrific act to bring the conversation back to the “Falistinian struggle”. Hogwash. It’s hard to have a peace process or plan that have turned down every single one offered.
Illusions by the media that they will never be treated in the same manner by an arab. I mean after all, they carry the water for them. Perhaps they could ask Lara Logan or Kim Barker about that? Illusions behind their high security walls in their homes that we don’t need a wall at the border, and we don’t need to screen who is coming in.
Illusions by the Demoncrats that the muslim and communist women they are so proudly promoting have any intention or desire to serve the Americans that elected them.
Illusions by the people that elected those women that they were good candidates and would work for them.
Illusions by RINOs that they are on a good path to staying in “power”, because that’s what it’s about to them.
Illusions, they are everywhere.
And why haven’t you heard or Ori Ansbacher? Because the media was doing what they do best. #FakeNews. They were spreading the illusion of an attack on some low list actor called Jussie Smollett. Who probably didn’t deceive the media, but not having learned their lesson from the Covington High School fiasco bought his line, hook and sinker. Reaction to Jussie Smollett and Covington Case Shows Media’s Agenda.
Yes indeed, the media is all over the false claim of an attack on some minor actor, but the horrific death of a beautiful 19 year old girl receives no attention at all. The illusion of what was really important. It was easy to deceive the media, they wanted to be deceived.
But we don’t. We don’t want illusions that Demoncrats aren’t planning to enact some kind of gun confiscation scheme. We can’t afford illusions that someone will always be there to help or save us.
After services this Shabbat we had Kiddush, lunch. We were all talking, and somehow the Second Amendment or guns came up, don’t recall how that happened. But one of the gentleman at our table related a story about a time when he was in Israel. One of the men showing them the territory of Judea and Samaria was armed. He said someone commented on it, wasn’t he scared living in a place where he had to have a GUN? He smiled and said no. He wasn’t scared, he is an excellent shot. As is his wife, their children and their grandchildren are all excellent shots. He said he was worried about the tour group, Jews living in the diaspora. Because many of them don’t have guns, they rely on someone else to keep them safe. He said I sounded like that man.
That man has no illusions.
As long as people are living with illusions, there will not be, there can not be, justice.
