That didn’t take long —
Obama reverses himself on Israel

Power Line, by Paul Mirengoff

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/21/2012 6:11:52 AM

We gave Obama credit for his initial reaction to the conflict between Israel and Hamas, namely that Israel “has the right to defend itself” against attack and that the Israelis will make their own decisions about their “military tactics and operations.” We recognized, however, that Obama would likely back away from this line if the conflict dragged on for an extended period of time. As it turned out, Obama reversed himself almost immediately. The Washington Post says as much in this report called “With Hillary Clinton’s dash to Middle East, Obama signals a shift in his approach.”

Anybody that takes anything at face value on what Obama says is a fool.6000 volt cattle prods can´t wake up half this country.Israel´s problems have nothing to do with their EBT cards getting re-upped.

Barry sees two advantages in sending PIAPS to Israel.
First, she is out of the country and WAY TOO BUSY to testify before Congress about Benghazi.
Second, it is very dangerous over there with incoming missiles dropping willy nilly.

i imagine Hillary may be regretting her decision to inject herself so prominently and physically into the so-called "peace process" as word emerges on the Tel Aviv attack on civilians on a bus. the quicksand of the Middle East has a reputation for swallowing bigger egos than hers.............including her husband´s.

What a terrible mistake Obama is for a POTUS. He renegs on his words which were a meaningless bait and switch just to get the Jewish vote again. He wears a mask of smiles which cover the real face of a charlatan liar.
Netanyahuh "Do not listen to to BHO" he is a hypocrite" and a political philander.

If America´s Jewish voting block doesn´t care about Israel, why should conservative Americans? Romney received less than 30% of Jewish votes after four years of Obama´s neglect and rudeness towards Israel. If Obama is to be an updated golden calf to Jewish academia, entertainment, religious leaders and most of all, voters, perhaps conservatives should be equally unconcerned with Israel´s fate.

Have to agree with #13. I have no religious or ethnic ties to Israel. I do care that the only true democracy and country closest in line with our values, etc is constantly under attack. But the American people spoke this past November and unless Israel starts sending free cheese and cell phones to people in this country - who cares?

One shouldn´t equate what too large a number of American Jews feel about Israel´s fate and their vote for Obama, with what Israeli Jews themselves think about their country´s fate and about Obama. Obama´s approval rating amongst Israeli´s is abysmal, they don´t trust him at all, and American Jews living or visiting in Israel voted by a great majority against Obama in this past election. I´m for Israel and Israeli Jews regardless of what some American turncoat Jews think or do. Go Bibi!

Obama is a master of stating the complete opposite of what his intentions are (and the press dutifully reporting it without criticism), in this case I am not so sure. On the other hand, since his first inclination is to stand behind the Muslims, Paul´s analysis is probably correct.

If The Won II is successful in undermining Israel to the extent it and its people are exterminated he will have brought about the Biblical end times but with God (Judaism and Christianity) losing and Allah (Islam) triumphant. This would fit perfectly with this narcissistic demigod´s ambition and worldview.

#15, 85% of American eligible voters in Israel voted for Romney. The population needs help, International Fellowship of Christians and Jews,
info@ifcj.org
with the resources going for defense, other areas like food and medicine are needed. The first 3 casualties included a pregnant wife and mother and yesterday the first military man was killed.

They tow the Democrat line, no matter that we have a totally inept and narcissistic amateur in office. I personally, and I am a Catholic, will never forgive them.

As for Israel, I am not too worried about them. They have God protecting and guiding them. Too bad the same can´t be said for this country.

Glenn Beck´s mercuryone.org has a donate button for Israel. His organization has donated $$ so planes can be left running so they can get off the ground quickly and also provide sleeping places for the pilots. Also, he said the reservists that were called up have to clothe themselves and they needed warm clothing.

FTA, "The administration knows that with Clinton on the ground trying to resolve the crisis, it will be harder for Netanyahu to make good on his threat to invade Gaza."

Perhaps Netanyahu is not all that concerned about what Obama thinks. Bibi remembers his brother´s bravery as leader of the Entebbe rescue and members of the team serve in Bibi´s cabinet. They understand bravery and bold action against their nation´s enemy.

#30,#31 & #32 thank you for your posts. Jews are scattered all over the planet for their protection. Any nation who doesn´t protect the Jews will be "cursed" & those who honor Israel will be "blessed" (proven in history). I have not one thread of agreement with anyone who is anti-semite & God will not protect our Republic if we do not protect Israel. I understand that some American warships were sent to Israel´s coast & I hope this is true. Hillary & BHO are from the darkside where the Sons of Hagar rattle their swords. Egypt is doing exactly what they have done for centuries & we helped kill off the one Egyptian who had a treaty with Israel. II Chronicles 7:14 we are not in charge!

Obama cannot be trusted. Whatever reassuring pablum he spouts one day will be reversed the next. American Jews who care about Israel should have caught onto this by now.

The only surprise here is that Obama even stated initially that Israel has a right to defend herself. Some pro-Israel mole must have slipped this line in on his teleprompter. But come to think of it, we were in the middle of an election when he said this, right? Actually, the statement is contrary to the thinking of most Democrats. Obviously, now the election is over, Obama can rescind the comment.

The one thing that worries me is that Israel, if I´m not mistaken, depends on America for a large majority of it´s military hardware. They fly American made planes and the munitions they use are designed and made for those said aircraft. I know that Israel does have the capability of making some of their own equipment, but not anywhere enough to wage a large scale war against those that hate them. So, in that respect, Obozo does have Israel over a barrel.

I pray that I´m wrong.

Many American Jews sympathize with the Palis. They truly believe that the Palis are getting a raw deal. Christians are the greatest supporters of Israel because they are prescient enough to know how this all plays out in the end and wish to be saved. 0bama is an end-times deceiver that fools worship at their own peril.

Many Christians, adopted (grafted as described by Paul in Romans 11) by God´s grace into His family, believe that God has not given up on His chosen people, the Jews. We believe these still have a special place in His heart and continue survive solely despite many genocidal attempts by Satan´s pawns because God does not go back on His promises especially the one to Abraham about the descendents continuing to propagate in multitudes.

Obama may fancy himself as earning the most powerful individual position on Earth, but we know better. He has no power but what God has allowed for him to have. As with leaders in ages past, his time too will end. He will then have to answer for how he handled the power loaned for a time to him. Something tells me that it won´t be as comfy a time as he has with the MSM right now.

#33 - yes, and thank G-d that Israel is nation of warriors, not wusses.
They recognize the value of survival since they have been targeted for years.

I thank G-d that Bibi is in office. Had this happened during as Peres regime, he´d have given them more sand and land for nothing.

The happiest people in the ME are Arabs who live freely in Israel. The seculars in Israel need to wake up and recognize the One True G-d, too or He will continue to smite them like He had to thousands of years ago.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, may those who love her prosper.

I have great regard for Israel´s capability to defend themselves, even as they are under assault from three direction, with or without "help" from the Current Regime in this country.

As for the American Jews not seeming to come to the defense of Israel, by their tacit and open support of the Current Regime, much of that may be explained easily enough, by the fact that many of them are not practicing religious Jews, and they have no sense of community with Israel.

You can find the answer to your question by rereading the history of how Hitler did it to them...they acquiesce to get along and have a herd mentality, like sheep.
Those gone secular think of liberalism like it´s air, not a threat.
Few people see this attitude as the extension of European wars, but the Baath party and The Muslim bro´s are all outgrowths of the German Communism we call National Socialism.

America is too liberal and Israel is somewhat conservative!

How many of the 12 tribes survived intact as Gods chosen people after the exile?
Two is the answer and they became Judah and retained the promised land.
The others mingled and mixed and married into the non jews who introduced them right back into worship of the golden calf and all things corrupt. They weren´t even left the name Israel and had to live as the hated land of Samaria

Today you can draw the same picture . Those two tribes inherited the compact with God and are Israel while the others have once again put the golden calf first and will lose that birthright just as they did then.
If you don´t understand the fact that they hung the real Jews out to dry or more aptly put-- allowed them to be mass murdered then find and read The Winds of War.

Great recommendation #68. There is a sequel to The Winds of War entitled War and Remembrance. Those two books should be mandatory reading for history classes.

Advice to Democrats: Don´t say ´recovery´
Associated Press, by David Espo    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/18/2014 10:15:20 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON - Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion that the Obama administration has had six years to get the economy moving and its policies haven´t worked. Coincidentally or not,

Iran Gets an Unlikely Visitor, an American
Plane, but No One Seems to Know Why

President Obama has warned that Iran is not open for business, even as the United States has loosened some of its punishing economic sanctions as part of an interim nuclear pact. Yet, on Tuesday morning, Iran had an unlikely visitor: a plane, owned by the Bank of Utah, a community bank in Ogden that has 13 branches throughout the state. Bearing a small American flag on its tail, the aircraft was parked in a highly visible section of Mehrabad Airport in Tehran. But from there, the story surrounding the plane, and why it was in Iran — where all but a few

Cost of Treatment May Influence Doctors

Saying they can no longer ignore the rising prices of health care, some of the most influential medical groups in the nation are recommending that doctors weigh the costs, not just the effectiveness of treatments, as they make decisions about patient care. The shift, little noticed outside the medical establishment but already controversial inside it, suggests that doctors are starting to redefine their roles, from being concerned exclusively about individual patients to exerting influence on how health care dollars are spent. “We understand that we doctors should be and are stewards of the larger society as well as of the patient in

Hillary Clinton may end up deciding she wants to spend the 935 days until election 2016 making corporate speeches and spoiling her grandchild. Recent events have exposed weaknesses in Clinton’s supposedly impregnable armor, gaps through which a Democratic or Republican challenger could damage, perhaps even defeat her. The bad headlines to which she has been subjected are enough to make anyone—anyone who isn’t a Clinton—think twice about running for president. Look at the polls. This week’s Fox News poll has Clinton’s favorable rating at its lowest point in six years. She is at 49 percent favorable, 45 percent unfavorable—similar to her

President Barack Obama used his Thursday press conference to diagnose Republicans as fear-mongering, spiteful, obstinate, petulant and obstructive, as he again declared mission-accomplished in his effort to put the nation’s health-care under government control. “I recognize that their party is going through the stages of grief — anger and denial and all that stuff — and we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama told reporters, where he announced that his Obamacare network had claimed 8 million subscribers. Obama coupled his passive-voice diatribe with his more-in-sorrow-than-anger promise that he “would much prefer a constructive conversation with the Republicans about how do we get some

´Deeply Ashamed´ Ferry Captain

The captain of a ferry that sank off the coast of South Korea Wednesday, leaving nearly 300 people missing, is under investigation as a possible criminal and was one of the first people to escape the doomed vessel, Coast Guard officials said. Lee Joon-seok, 69, left the ferry on a lifeboat 32 minutes after reporting an accident, officials said. The captain appeared on Korean television today, his face covered by a gray hoodie. “I am really sorry and deeply ashamed,” he said, as he was being questioned at the Mokpo Coast Guard Office. It´s unclear which of his actions could be considered criminal.

CBO shows it’s Paul Ryan 4,
Obama 0 on budget targeting

Soon after the tea party era began in Congress in 2011, President Obama and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan each released their budgets, proposing how much the government should tax and spend over the rest of the decade. Three years into that budget showdown, Mr. Ryan and his Republican colleagues are winning. Government spending has slowed, and Mr. Obama’s plans for higher taxes and higher spending have fallen by the wayside. “The discretionary spending has in fact been driven by Republicans post-2010 clamping down,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office who is now president of the

Those ‘rogue’ agents

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

For Obamacare, What Counts As Success?

Ezra Klein, in his new capacity as one of the impresarios behind Vox, has written a pair of attention-grabbing posts — here, and then here — defending the proposition that Obamacare has, in some sense, “won,” and that conservatives who can’t come to terms with that victory can’t come to terms with reality itself. Reading them, it struck me that this argument would benefit from laying down some specific markers for the near future, because Klein seems to move back and forth between two definitions of success. At times, as when he writes that Obamacare “has won its survival” and

What would a Mitch

It’s no secret that Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) don’t like one another. They battle regularly over legislation and their Senate floor fights over arcane-but-important rules have become must-see entertainment for senatorial insiders. According to aides in both parties, the two leaders have not had a one-on-one sitdown to discuss legislation (or anything else) since late last year. Nowadays, all business is conducted on the phone or in brief discussions on the Senate floor. Part of that feud is political – Democrats targeted McConnell in 2008, Republicans targeted Reid in 2010, Democrats

Jews have reportedly been told to ´register´ with pro-Russian forces in the east Ukrainian city of Donetsk. They were also told they would need to provide a list of property they own as well as being ordered to pay a fee or face the threat of deportation. U.S. officials in Washington say leaflets bearing the chilling order have recently appeared in the city amid pro and anti-Russian protests as tensions rise in the area. It comes after Jews leaving a synagogue in the city of Donetsk were reportedly told they had to ´register´ with Ukranians trying to make the city part of Russia.United

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The
