The future of the Tea Party

TEA Party to GOP establishment: enough already.

Many are speculating about the future of the Tea Party. Had these people really understood the true nature of the Tea Party, they wouldn’t call for leaders to emerge, or try to form a political party like the Republicans or the Democrats.

What is the Tea Party?

The Tea Party is a grassroots movement. It has sprouted up all across the nation like blades of grass growing on somebody’s lawn. Every blade of grass is a citizen that rejects career politicians and the messes, fiscal and constitutional, that they made. These citizens want to rein in out-of-control government and restore the principles this country was founded upon. They value life, freedom, and the right to pursue happiness as they see fit.

Richman’s rebuke

Rabbi Chaim Richman, International Director of the Temple Institute, told off President Barack H. Obama on YouTube on May 30. On May 31, he said much the same things on Arutz-7 Radio.

We are faced with many [Osama] Bin Ladens every day, not just one. What gives you the right to decide we should negotiate with our Bin Ladens while you take yours out?

Middle East in ferment ahead of ‘Naksa Day’

Western Wall. Under a two state solution, Jews could not approach it.

The Middle East gets more agitated every day, as the Arabs prepare protests, for the first time, on the day they lost the Six-Day War of 1967.

‘Naqba’ and ‘Naksa’

Militant Arabs remember two defeats they suffered three weeks apart on the calendar:

  • Nakba (“calamity”) Day, on May 15, the day that Israel declared itself an independent country (1948).
  • Naksa (“setback”) Day, on June 7, the day that the Jordanians lost the eastern half of Jerusalem.
