Progressives, Mainstream Media Are Anti-Semites

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2014/07/18

Sorry for the redundancy in the headline. While Truth Before Dishonor is decidedly pro-Israel, as is any Bible-believing Christian, the Democrat Party, as shown in their loudly booing the insertion of pro-Israel language in its platform in 2012, Progressives, Mainstream Media (brought to you by the Redundant Department of Redundancy) are decidedly anti-Israel. To the extreme that they support Islamic Jihadists, Islamic terrorists, child-murdering war criminals against the peace-desiring, self-defense-minded, self-preservation minded Israelis and the only nation in the Middle-East that is both Democratic and tolerant of Mohammedism, Christianity, Judaism, atheism.

From Robert Stacy McCain:

Here’s how the liberal mind works: The only thing they need to know is, “Who’s the victim of oppression?” Once the liberal media decides Palestinians are victims and Israelis are oppressors, it doesn’t matter what actually happens — Hamas suicide bombers blowing up busloads of innocent Israelis, launching missiles at Tel Aviv, whatever — the victim/oppressor dynamic controls the narrative.

Stand for Freedom.
Stand for religious tolerance.
Stand for Democratic rule of Law.
Stand against genocide.
Stand against bigotry.

Stand up for the right of Israel to exist and Jews to live.
Down with the lying Media. Down with the lying Hamas and State-sponsored Terrorism.

Sorry, Israel, You’re On Your Own

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/11/07

We tried and failed. We on the Right worked hard to rid our government of the man who would deign to utter the words “The Future Must Not Belong to Those Who Slander the Prophet of Islam”, in complete rejection of our First Amendment and complete rejection of Judaism and Christianity. We tried and failed.

And just as we Christians and the practicing Jews here in the US are having our Religious Freedoms stripped from us by the Obama administration are left further unprotected and unsafe and unfree, so are you, Israel. You’re on your own. For the next four years, you cannot count on the US to help keep you safe from the Mohammedan terrorists surrounding you who want nothing less than your total annihilation.

You are now “a nation of unwalled cities” and only Providence can help you now. You have no friendly nations to come to your rescue.

But you still have many millions of people here in the US who are praying vehemently to Adonai on your behalf. The US will fail you, and just did. But Yahweh will not. Even as the followers of the evil, genocidal, pedophiliac, burning in Sheol Mohammed redouble their efforts to destroy you, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Joseph will be there for you. As He promised.

Who Reads Truth Before Dishonor?

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/09/02

I added the Flag Counter back in October of 2009 because I was interested in the outreach of Truth Before Dishonor. I wanted to know who read this decidedly American and decidedly Christian Conservative political site. And to say I’m satisfied with the geopolitical breakdown of the viewers of this site would be an understatement.

Nearly 1 in 5 viewers of this site hail from outside the US. And I am overjoyed at that number. TBD is not just reaching Americans but people from a great many countries. TBD has reached a total of 162 different countries so far. And the United Kingdom is fast approaching the point where it becomes the third nation with more than 1,000 unique viewers.

Roughly 4 out of 5 viewers of this American, Christian Conservative political site hail from the US. And I am very pleased the ratio is so low. I have seen various sites where the totals are more along the lines of 9 in 10 from the US. I am proud of the wider dissemination that TBD has. While the goal of TBD is to reach as broad an audience and as many readers as possible, to provide Truth in the ever-lasting struggle against Leftist lies, it is not strictly an American goal. If only the US has the Truth and the rest of the world suffers under Socialist lies, the world is not a better place, and the US is evermore on the brink of destruction. Thus, the 1 in 5 viewers from outside the US are very welcome and very desired here. Would that it were 1 in 4! And, while TBD has more than doubled its daily viewership this year over last year, would that that number would more than treble again.

It is my desire — and I expect the desire of every author here — that TBD makes a very real difference in the governments and lives of all peoples, whether they be Americans, Israelis (as this site is officially and decidedly pro-Israel), Canadians, Europeans, Asians, Africans, or what have you. We even love people who live in Steak-and-Kidney!

So, what is the break-down of the viewers of TBD?
Roughly 4 in 5 hail from the US.
About 1 in 30 are Canadian.
Another 1 in 50 are from the United Kingdom.
Another 1 in 80 each are from Germany and Croatia (roughly speaking).
Nearly 1 in 100 each are from Australia and India.
Israel, which has a current population of less than 8,000,000, closely mirroring the total population of Virginia, the 12th most populous state in the US, and barely over half of one percent of India’s population of 1.22 billion, still accounts for more than 1 in 250 visitors here.

Of the over 160 countries represented, 23 countries have broken the 100 unique visitor threshold.

We at Truth Before Dishonor are very appreciative of every viewer here, not only the 4 in 5 which are American, but also the 1 in 5 which are not. You are what make this site. Please, after reading the “about” and “comment policy” pages, do add your own comments and build discussions. And if you are Israeli, do read the “Pro-Israel” page. You are not alone. And rest assured, we Americans are far more Israel-friendly than our current President, and tens of millions of us are working very hard to rectify that situation. Your comments are more than welcome. They are desired.

An Excellent Blog To Read

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/04/08

I decided to check out who is subscribed to Truth Before Dishonor, to see who found us worthy of being followed. So I began to examine the list. “I think I know what this one’s about. This one is watching his opponents. Yep, I follow Head Noises (which has completed the move to WordPress), too. Vip Ogola? Who’s that?”

Well, I’m glad I decided to find out who Vip Ogola is. Apparently Vip Ogola is a widower with children, based on my quick scanning of his blog. Also, it appears he lives outside the US (pick up a packet of milk so we can share some tea). And he appears to be very much a Christian. More accurately, he appears to be a Messianic Zionist Jew and, as we are a predominantly Christian Conservative, clearly Pro-Israel site (see the above tabs), we are honored to have one such as Vip Ogola following us.

And those who read Truth Before Dishonor should read Vip Ogola’s Blog. Since his blog is very much straight out of the box in format, with no bells and/or whistles, I have no idea what his readership is. But I know it’s not enough. His articles are very much Christian and are very high quality in my estimation. His very first article (second, since he did not delete the out-of-the-box article WordPress gives for each and every new blog) is a must-read.

I need a friend who will listen to Leroy and Shuku and hear them in a way am unable…and because she loves me too, tell me what they were saying. I need a friend who will hold devotions with my children when I am away, and teach them from The Heart of God exaclty what they needed to hear for the day. I need a friend who will translate me to my children, because she has heard me and she loves them.

I need a friend who will keep me focused on God The Answer. Today I need a friend who will not take this day for granted…this battle as a small one because I have faced it before..but who will hold my hand and bring me before The Throne of God…and say “Let’s Ask God about that” and then do. Today I need to tell my friend, that my friend has died…and that I have felt weak, cold, unable to move, and could she hold my hand so we could go where people go when their friends are gone?

But I think all his articles (that I read and/or scanned) are must-reads.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu addresses Congress

Posted by Dana Pico on 2012/03/06

From

PM: Israel has acted against US advice before

 Binyamin Netanyahu with Speaker John Boehner.

Netanyahu tells congress Israel has historically acted in its own interests against American advice; Boehner pledges Congress will never let Jewish state ‘stand alone.’

By Herb Keinon, JERUSALEM POST CORRESPONDENT
03/07/2012 00:39

WASHINGTON – Citing historical precedents in which the US and Israel did not see eye-to-eye and Israel acted according to its own perception of its interests, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told congressional leaders Tuesday that Israel viewed things differently than the US did at times, because it was not a global power and was more vulnerable.

Israeli sources said Netanyahu, meeting congressional leaders before flying back to Israel Tuesday evening, noted that David Ben-Gurion declared independence against the advice of the US; Levi Eshkol launched a preemptive attack in 1967, against Washington’s counsel; and Menachem Begin decided to bomb the Iraqi nuclear reactor in 1981 despite US opposition.

America has global interests, while Israel is “on the ground and more vulnerable,” Netanyahu said in reference to Iran, saying that this made for a very different perspective.

A very different perspective! While the United States has global interests, Iran does not pose an existential threat to the United States; if Iran succeeds in building nuclear weapons, she would pose an existential threat to Israel.

This is not to say that the United States has never faced an existential threat. Russia has enough nuclear weapons, mounted on sophisticated delivery systems, to turn this country into a radioactive black hole in the ground. And while Russia seems like more of a remote threat now than the old Soviet Union was, the threat still persists.

But Americans really know very little about existential threats. The threat of a sudden Soviet nuclear attack, which was always possible, was still a sort of unrealistic, hazy, implausible, and just plain unreal thing. I am old enough to remember nuclear attack drills in kindergarten, where the teachers would have us scramble under our desks, on the red mats on which we’d take our daily kindergarten naps, but those were back in 1958, when Nikita Sergeievich Khrushchev was Premier and Cпутник was our new orbiting moon. For Americans, the existential threat was always just a threat, something never carried out, and something very unlikely to ever be carried out.

For the Israelis, an existential threat is all too real, because the Jews have faced a real, actual attempt to kill every last one of them, and though now quite elderly, there are still Holocaust survivors living in Israel. Even after the end of the Third Reich and the liberation from the concentration camps, the recovering Jews still faced real opposition in their attempt for form a new state, not just from the hostile Arabs in the Levant, but from the British, who, fearing the Arab reaction if too many Jewish refugees were allowed into the Levant, threw many of them into the Atlit detainee camp. Israel was formed again not by peaceful Jewish refugees from the devastation of Europe, but by an armed struggle against the British Mandatory Authority. This is part of the history that every Israeli child learns, is part of the culture that every Israeli knows, and is still attested to by some of the now very elderly men, and women, who fought for Israeli independence.

We Americans don’t understand the Arabs, and cannot see the appeal that political Islam has for Muslims in the Middle East. The Israelis, being much closer to Western civilization than the Arabs, are a people with whom we can more closely identify. But if we more closely identify with them, many of the Israelis really are cultural strangers to us. While we can kind of, sort of picture the Israeli settlers as analogous to our Western pioneers, they were actually quite different, rarely safe, scratching out an existence in a barren land, surrounded by hostile natives who could not be driven far off, and with the women just as responsible for the defense of the community as the men.

The Israelis are somewhat closer to us than the Arabs, culturally speaking, but only somewhat. When Prime Minister Netanyahu notes that Israel has gone its own way on certain issues of critical importance to them, it has often been because the Israelis believed there was no other choice. Some Americans believe that the Israelis ought to be willing to take chances for peace; that is easy to say when your country is safe and secure behind 3,000 miles of blue water. When your country is a small nation, one that can be driven across in an hour, it may not seem that there is a lot of room to take chances.

Eight Days Of Hannukkah

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/12/03

My Lights of the Season series is never complete without Eight Days of Hannukkah. All three Seasons now, with this publishing, the song has been included. It was very late the first year, but I’ve made up for that. Here’s what I wrote on Common Sense Political Thought (a now archive-only site which is definitely good for research) last year (with a YouTube substitute for a Vimeo video):

I missed out on marking Hannukah last year, posting my article in early January. Well, Hannukah is quickly approaching, December 2 – 9, so I’m putting out my Hannukah article this year on time. (Yes, it’s a reprint of the last one, with a couple minor changes.)

That moonbat Jeff and his Opinions Nobody Asked For site has a wonderful article that I wish I saw during the season but I didn’t so I’m posting it now even though it’s late and is this a long enough run-on sentence for you yet? Okay, Jeff’s article is good, maybe not wonderful, but he leads to a wonderful article and provides a very uplifting song that I quite enjoy.

What else can you say about a song written by a Mormon Senator from Utah with the music written by a Jewish writer of Christian Contemporary music and sung by a Syrian woman from Indiana with backup vocals by Jewish children and the Mormon Senator other than take a listen and be uplifted?

We here at Truth Before Dishonor are Conservative. We are predominantly Christian. That means beyond any shadow of a doubt we are pro-Israel and pro-Jew. This uplifting Hannukkah song is merely a representation of our love for the Jews and for Israel, and a gift to all who visit, Jew or Gentile.

Truth Before Dishonor Is A Pro-Israel Site

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/08/21

Not only does Israel have a right to exist, but also a right to maintain a defensible border and a unified Israeli Jerusalem. To date, only two Middle East countries (Egypt and Jordan) have signed peace treaties with Israel. The remaining countries have cease-fires with Israel — an extremely different animal entirely. And as of this writing, Egypt is well on its way to eradicating its peace treaty with Israel. Many of the countries in the region refuse to acknowledge the right of Israel, Israelis, Jews to exist. And Egypt is quickly approaching that stage where it once again refuses to acknowledge the right of Israel, Israelis, Jews to exist (as it was prior to the Sadat/Begin peace treaty).

Israel has the right to proactively defend itself with overwhelming force against its enemies. Israel has the right to attack without warning, using any military means necessary, in its proactive defense. But Israel has gone “above and beyond” by giving warnings to the civilian population on more than one occasion — a very bad military strategy, but one absolutely necessary politically due to the severe anti-Israel sentiment among the world’s Leftists (but that consideration and attempt at amelioration has never had any effect on the Leftist emotionalism).

Israel further has the right to obtain and maintain buffer zones in its defense against the myriad countries and terrorist organizations arrayed against it, and to annex land into Israel Proper in its defensive travails. It is a well-known fact that Israel cannot afford to lose a single war, else it ceases to exist, while all the Mohammedan countries at animosity to Israel only need to win one war and Israel is destroyed.

Israel is the only free, democratic nation in the region. Israel is the only nation in the region that allows the free exercise of Judaism, Christianity and Mohammedanism without repercussion. Israel is the only nation in the region that allows Jews and Arabs to serve high elected offices within government. The rest of the region is far less than free. Iraq has democratic elections and a framework of democracy but the Mohammedan anti-freedom, anti-Israel, anti-America foreign insurgents prevent a true freedom and a true democratic and free society to gain any semblance of a strong foundation. Without American presence, even the shadow of democracy would quickly fade away in Iraq. The rest are Mohammedan tyrannies. Kingdoms, caliphate, terrorist-owned and caused barren land, however you wish to describe it.

Genesis 12
The Call of Abram

1 The LORD had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.

2 “I will make you into a great nation,
and I will bless you;
I will make your name great,
and you will be a blessing.
3 I will bless those who bless you,
and whoever curses you I will curse;
and all peoples on earth
will be blessed through you.”

Israel has been Blessed from Providence’s founding of it. And the Curse is recognized as absolutely real. While the Blessing has no consideration in my pro-Israel stance, I hold out the Curse to all who choose to side with the Mohammedans and terrorists (same thing) who fight for the destruction of Israel.
