As gleeful as one might be after having noted the defeat of Cantor by Brat and passage by the PA-Senate

of the Mandatory Holocaust Education Bill, it is vital to recognize what is occurring urgently in Kurdistan;
my recent essay [America Must Recognize Kurdistan] MANDATES that BHO help to-the-max ASAP the
struggling Syrian-Kurds, as well as the Iraqi-Kurds who just re-took Kirkuk from the Islamists, even as the
the Iraqi army is Joining With Kurdish Forces In Effort to Retake Mosul after 500,000 Fled and Sunni
radicals seized Turkey's Mosul consulate. Key cities in Northern Iraq have been overrun by Sunni-
insurgents, and Militants are now Sweeping Toward Baghdad; as ISLAMISTS CLOSE-IN, BHO Demanded
Iraq 'Step Up to the Plate' on Terror Surge which they acknowledge is rapidly deteriorating. Meanwhile,
an al-Qaeda Splinter Group ISIS is Marching Towards Iraq's Biggest Oil Refinery as Refugees flee tide of
terror provoked by this 'full-blown army'; Thousands of Iraqis have taken-up arms as the Government is
on brink of collapse. IRAQ ANARCHY IS SPIRALING, as CBS Reports Iraq is Falling Into Chaos.

Rebuffed [secretly] Last Month was al-Malaki’s urgent request for air-strikes, which he
has again requested. As the Mideast's colonial borders broke, countries reacted [Turkey
calls for emergency NATO meeting, Iran Deployed Forces, and Germany called on its
citizens to leave immediately]. Ralph Peters concluded that, in the Middle East, the U.S.
is in the "Weakest Position Since 1945" & "Jihadis Are Winning." Thus, Medieval Sharia
Law was Imposed [and far more heads have been rolling in Iraq than SHOULD “roll” in
America], recalling the [false] claims by Obama ["The World Is Less Violent Than It Has
Ever Been"] and Biden [Iraq is One of Obama's 'Great Achievements'].

Obama isn't ruling-out any potential responses to escalating violence in
Iraq and has long been monitoring the situation on the ground there.
"What we've seen over the last couple of days indicates Iraq's going to
need more help" from the United States and from the international
community; he has been working "around the clock" on options for how
to respond. "We do have a stake in making sure that these jihadists are
not getting a permanent foothold in either Iraq or Syria for that matter."

BHO should know that Sic vis pacem, para bellum. [If you want peace, prepare for war.]
Noting also that al-Qaeda-linked Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan claimed responsibility
for Karachi Airport Attack, the below-photo suggests there are potential-targets for the
USA to bomb caravans of ISIS-terrorists…if only BHO would stop talking and start acting.

Illustrating, again how Putin is “playing chess while BHO plays checkers,” note his multi-front moves:

Yesterday, it was noted that the Holocaust Education Bill was passed unanimously by the PA-Senate,
resulting from intense efforts [documented herein] that were initiated this past November. It should be
recalled that the article on this topic in the Exponent a fortnight ago [Debate Continues Over Holocaust
Education] was problematic, as per my input [how-to-be-a-really-lousy-journalist-for-fun-and-profit:
"Don’t Sweat the Details; Don’t Question Authority; Remember Your Job Is to Advance Narratives, Not
Report Facts; Quote Directly from Press Releases; Pick Sides (i.e., promote sympathy for one side and
hostility for the other); Don’t Describe People: Label Them; Hype the Issues You Personally Care about
and Downplay Those You Don’t; Listen to the Insects of the Hour; and Use Language Tricks to
Obfuscate."]; thus, it is not surprising that the article in the Exponent regarding what just transpired was
also profoundly flawed, as per my input [which, when “noticed” by another reader, prompted a set of
follow-up notes that provided hyperlinks to key-articles that had been composed previously]:

Omitted from this piece, unfortunately, is the pivotal component of this legislation; it
will "REQUIRE SCHOOL ENTITIES TO OFFER INSTRUCTION IN THE HOLOCAUST,
GENOCIDE AND HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS...IF THE STUDY CONDUCTED BY THE STATE
BOARD OF EDUCATION [a report on the "voluntary" nature of this initiative, to be issued
no later than November 30, 2017] DEMONSTRATES THAT LESS THAN NINETY PERCENT
OF THE SCHOOL ENTITIES ARE OFFERING INSTRUCTION IN THE HOLOCAUST, GENOCIDE
AND HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS."

type=B&bn=1424

Perhaps the full-length article to be published in next week's Exponent will include this
information, for it was the stumbling-block during the past ½-year of intense lobbying
that was pursued regarding this trenchant issue.

Meanwhile, efforts continue on multiple fronts to address the existence of a Holocaust-denier acting as
a Temple University Professor; one need only recognize the need for such a rudimentary education
through primary/secondary schools, so as to minimize the production of such anti-Semites who might
infest the College/University campus. Some feel efforts should be made to boycott his classes, but this is
a rather labor-intensive concept that fails to “invite” the perpetrator to ‘fess-up [noting also that this
type of deviation from recognized societal norms would be viewed as unlawful were he to be in Europe].
Other symptoms of anti-Semitism relate to Israel [Peace will occur when Palestinians Accept Jews as
Neighbors], a college-campus [first proactive anti-BDS student resolution passes at Western Washington
U.] and in a secondary-school [Anti-Semitic Slur Published in Silicon Valley High School Yearbook. {Also,
note that Islam is the second-largest religion in twenty states.}

Now that Obama is as unpopular as Bush, he may wish to recognize that even his friends
have concluded that Obama's Being Pretty Stupid for a Smart Guy; he continues fanning
racism while playing the blame-game ['A Lot of Young Men of Color Aren't Doing Well']
instead of listening to people such as Charles Krauthammer [BHO "Should Try Telling
The Truth, because It's Easier To Memorize"]. As a result, compiled have been the Top
Ten Casualties in Obama’s Wars—To Whom He Won’t Apologize.

Hagel’s testimony regarding Bergdahl did not go over very well [Hagel Gets Testy With Lawmaker Over
Bergdahl: ‘I Don’t Like The Implication Of The Question’; Hagel admits White House mishandled some
aspects of prisoner trade; Hagel: "I Know Trust Has Been Broken" Over Bergdahl Trade; Hagel: Bergdahl
Deal Was "Imperfect" But "Right Decision"; and Hagel: 'Offended and Disappointed' at Treatment of
Bergdahl Family] as Dems trotted-out more inane rationalizations [DEM SENATOR: OBAMA SIMPLY DID
NOT HAVE TIME TO TELL CONGRESS ABOUT BERGDAHL SWAP] that raised the question as to whether
Dems will Pay a Price for Bergdahl Deal. It was revealed by the DoD that Bergdahl Spent 'Much of His
Captivity' in Pakistan and was Not Traded for Money and that Bergdahl Heading Back to USA on Friday;
also, it was discovered that his Prison Letters Revealed Frustrations With Army and that [contradicting
prior assertions] this Prisoner Exchange Won’t Bring Peace Talks, Taliban Said. As Opposition to Bergdahl
POW Swap Rose to 54%, a lib Law Professor Jonathan Turley said BHO would be ‘Heading Into A
Buzzsaw’ If Obama Defies Congress Over Bergdahl. {Also note: 'None of the Above' Won Dem Primary
for Governor in Nevada.}

Virginia GOPs were not fooled

Politico reported that Rep. Marlin Stutzman will enter the race for House Republican whip, complicating
the competitive race. Stutzman, a third term lawmaker from Indiana, will face Louisiana Rep. Steve
Scalise and Illinois Rep. Peter Roskam. [Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas) will not run for House majority
leader, according to GOP sources. Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and Rep. Pete Sessions (R-Texas) are
running to replace Eric Cantor for the No. 2 slot in GOP leadership.]

Heritage Action remitted a communication that mirrors conclusions drawn previously:

A political earthquake rocked Washington, DC last night.

The implications of Dave Brat's stunning victory go well beyond politics, however. As the
Weekly Standard's William Kristol explained, the race became "a broad populist case for
a Republican party focused on Main Street and Middle America, not on Wall Street and
corporate interests."

For the past four years, Heritage Action has been making the case that conservatives
should not be in the business of protecting or justifying corporate welfare. Instead, we
should confront the Bigs – Big Wall Street, Big Government, Big Labor, Big Education and
Big Business – head on, and fight for the conservative policy solutions that will save the
country, not simply those that help the well connected.

And last night, voters made DC listen.
