US Calls Netanyahu ´Desperate and Weak´
Israel National News, by Gil Ronen

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 12/2/2013 9:36:23 AM

Senior officials in the White House have said that Israel Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu “is desperate and weak,” in reaction to Netanyahu´s remonstrations against the deal struck with Iran over its nuclear weapons program. Israeli television Channel 10 quoted the officials as saying “His pronouncements show a lack of self-confidence,” in an unusually harsh personal attack on Netanyahu. “We are not perturbed by his vocal opposition.”

Comments:
Sundance at Conservative Tree House believes this line is classic Denis McDonough, Obie´s internal WH guru and mindmaster.

Sundance at TCTH opines that the "Senior White House Officials" are most likely what he calls the Trifecta of Hate (for Israel) that is Valjar, Samantha Powers, and Denis McDonough.

This is also a distraction from the Obamacare nightmare.

Netanyahu knows exactly what he´s doing. Netanyahu is one of the very few Leaders in the world with any real intellect and common sense. Those who are attacking him and Israel are of SATAN and/or blinded by Satan and used by Satan. All though the bible, scripture warns how ALL NATIONS will rise up against Israel. "I will bless those who bless thee, and I will CURSE those that CURSE thee." God says of Israel. So now, those who need to curse Israel, fasten your chin straps.......you are angering GOD Himself. And as a result, bad is coming to the attackers from God Himself as well.

In Bibi Netanyahu Israel has a leader who takes his country´s side against enemies foreign and domestic. What a novel concept!

Statewide, we´ve now endured almost five years of Obama´s flailing foreign policy (not to mention his ailing domestic policy) that has weakened us and our longtime allies while emboldening our enemies.(As another politically involved Chicagoan once said, "Keep hope alive!")

Anything this Administration says about perceived political opponents is, always, artless thousandfold projection (when it´s not millionfold). Desperate and weak, these White House accomodationists, individuals so open-minded we can´t even trust them to take the USA´s side in negotiations with Allah´s throat slitters and would be nuclear-armed terrorists, meander into the lion-baited booby trap either none the wiser or fully intending to supply what´s on the menu, so long as they don´t get eaten themselves. They stick their necks out for nobody. But they´ll be glad to see yours on the chopping block.

For those who still believe biblical scripture, Genesis 12:2-3 traces the Abramic curse that adheres to enemies of Israel. Since the reestablishment of the State of Israel in 1948, there´s never been a more virulent enemy of Israel in America´s White House than now. He has well earned--and might even outlast--our disrespect. However, if the God of Israel, the God of all Christians and all Jews, puts His finger on the balance beam, perfect justice for God´s enemies will be exacted. On that day some self-deifiers who have denied Him will know that he is the Lord. And that they´re not.

"lack of self-confidence"

Prima facie absurd. Projection. This administration doth protest too much.

I could sooner accept that Benjamin Netanyahu is a shape shifting space poodle than that he lacks self-confidence.

Israel has a leader absolutely unique in this world right now. Bibi´s strength of character, sharp intellect, personal courage, and tremendous political skills alone cause him to stand out among the world´s leaders. Those fortunate to know Bibi see a man who trusts in God, leans not to his own understanding and it is clear that He is directing Bibi´s path. Thank God. Woe be it to this administration as they openly seek to hurt the apple of God´s eye. Also, any former US leaders who choose to remain silent better wake up too. Silence in the face of what we are doing to Israel is totally unacceptable, especially those who call themselves Christian. Amen #2, well-said, well-said.

It is constant prayer of mine: for the peace of Jerusalem and the security of Israel. For Benjamin Netanyahu--that God would fill him with wisdom, courage, cunning and victory over Israel´s enemies--at which point I sadly acknowledge that the leadership of this country counts themselves as enemies of Israel. And as a p.s. I ask God to send such a leader like Mr. Netanyahu--one who loves his country, is passionate about the prominence of his country and defends it with his very life--to lead U.S. ASAP.

I differ with the title - Obama Calls Netanyahu Desperate and Weak. I believe most Americans (US) call him bold and honorable!

If we only had a Netanyahu to run this country we would be respected again.

Netanyahu displays more character and love for his country than Obama can even comprehend.

The scandals that are finally being challenged have brought Obama´s standing below any we´ve seen.

America needs to return to the values we once cherished. The Faith of our Fathers displayed hearts filled with love and minds that sought truth.

Pray for America. Our lives depend upon God´s intervention again!

The Dangerous Absurdity of
the Secret “Cuban Twitter”
The New Yorker, by Jon Lee Anderson    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 4/5/2014 11:29:43 AM     Post Reply
An eye-catching A.P. story, published Thursday, revealed that, in 2010, the United States Agency for International Development (U.S.A.I.D.) covertly deployed a social-media program in Cuba in the hope of bringing about a Cuban Spring. The network, called ZunZuneo, was offered to Cubans via the country’s mobile-phone network as a free text service, and attracted forty thousand subscribers before mysteriously ending operations in 2012. The contractors who ran the program are said to have concealed its U.S.-government origins via an offshore system of front companies and foreign servers, and to have collected data on subscribers’ “political tendencies” and “receptiveness,” among other

probe of CIA’s harsh interrogations

Posted By: earlybird- 4/5/2014 10:27:16 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON — The toxic partisanship that’s paralyzed most Washington lawmaking for years often spared congressional consideration of intelligence matters. Not this time. Not when the topic is the CIA’s use of enhanced interrogation techniques _ widely regarded as torture _ against detainees who were suspected terrorists.(Snip) Republicans saw the report as largely an indictment of a Bush-era policy, he said, and because the program is now defunct, it became easier to make political points.

Jose A. Rodriguez Jr. is the former head of the CIA’s National Clandestine Service and the author of “Hard Measures: How Aggressive CIA Actions After 9/11 Saved American Lives.” People might think it is wrong for me to condemn a report I haven’t read. But since the report condemns a program I ran, I think I have justification. On Thursday, the Senate Intelligence Committee voted to declassify and release hundreds of pages of its report on U.S. terrorist interrogation practices. Certain senators have proclaimed how devastating the findings are, saying the CIA’s program was unproductive, badly managed and misleadingly sold. Unlike

A Chinese ship searching for Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 detected a "pulse signal" in the southern Indian Ocean Saturday, but there was no evidence yet that it was linked to the missing plane, state media said. The signal picked up by the vessel´s black box detector had a frequency of 37.5kHz per second, the official Xinhua news agency said -- identical to the beacon signal emitted by flight recorders. The announcement came nearly a month after the Malaysian jetliner disappeared off radar screens en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board, triggering an unprecedented international search.

EVERETT, Wash. — As medical examiners painstakingly piece together the identities and lives of the people killed when a mudslide wiped out a small Washington community, a mystery troubles them. One of the 30 bodies found does not fit with descriptions on the missing persons list, which, as of Thursday included 15 people, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff´s Office. The only clue to the man´s identity is his gold molars, said Heather Oie, operations manager at the Snohomish County Medical Examiner´s Office. He might have been someone who was on the highway or going for a hike.

This winter, the film "Monuments Men" told the story of how, over two years, with virtually no resources or support, a ragtag division of 345 volunteers from 17 countries working under the aegis of the Monuments, Fine Arts and Archives (MFAA) program rescued six million stolen artworks from Nazi depots, including some of the world´s most esteemed masterpieces, and saved hundreds of historic buildings, objects and archival

But he did not explain why the administration continued to cling to its narrative even after U.S. intelligence debunked reports that the deadly attack was born out of a protest over an anti-Islam video.(Snip)But he acknowledged overruling the wishes of his boss at the time, CIA Director David H.

It´s lunchtime at Washington Preparatory High School in Los Angeles, but 16-year-old Parrish Jackson has barely touched her turkey burger and apricots. She´s dumping them into the trash can.(Snip) And so it goes on hundreds of campuses in Los Angeles Unified, the nation´s second-largest school system, which serves 650,000 meals a day. Students throw out at least $100,000 worth of food a day — and probably far more, according to estimates by David Binkle, the district´s food services director.

WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court on Wednesday freed wealthy donors to give more money directly to congressional candidates, extending its controversial 2010 Citizens United decision that opened the door for unlimited independent spending on political issues. In a 5-4 decision, the court’s conservative majority struck down Watergate-era aggregate limits that barred political donors from giving more than $123,000 a year in total to candidates running for seats in the House of Representatives or Senate. The court said this limit violated the free-speech rights of the donors, and it was not needed to prevent “corruption” of the political process.

SANTIAGO, Chile -- Chilean President Michelle Bachelet toured northern Chile on Wednesday, inspecting the damage from a magnitude 8.2 earthquake the night before that left six people dead and forced the evacuation of about 900,000 others but which apparently caused less damage than feared. At first glance Wednesday morning, damage to northern coastal cities near the epicenter seemed to be minor, according to local news reports and government officials. There were scattered fires caused by gas leaks and some structural damage to homes and businesses but apparently little devastation in the vicinity of Pisagua, near the offshore epicenter of the quake.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

A 54-year-old white man has been left barely clinging to life after he was brutally beaten by a group of black men when he got out of his car to check on a young black boy he accidentally hit. Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated. The gang also stole his wallet before leaving him for dead. Utash is in extremely critical

Accra, Ghana — Jimmy Thorne says that relocating to Ghana is one of the best moves he’s ever made. It doesn’t matter if he, an African-American, gets called “obroni,” the local word for white person, in the streets, or if some of his family can’t quite figure out what he’s doing in this West African nation so far from his roots in North Carolina. (Snip) Whether motivated by love, money, or the desire to rekindle a long-lost connection, black repatriation to Africa remains alive and well, even if it never quite became the high-volume, emotional return to African roots

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it

“Morning has broken, like the first morning.” Whatever your faith, if you’ve got any at all, that’s pretty much what it boils down to. The sun comes up, and we give it another shot.(snip) Stevens converted to Islam in the late 1970s, and he angered a lot of fans when he appeared to support the fatwa against novelist Salman Rushdie with comments he made in 1989. But for a kid in thrall to the kinetic power of the spinning records in his father’s hi-fi console, Stevens seemed to be living proof that popular music (he had 11 Top 40 hits in

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has sworn off running again for elected office, but Americans have certainly heard that one before. Speculation that Romney might run again has largely been stoked by the reunion he planned to host last month in Park City, Utah, for members of his 2012 campaign and debate team and a string of recent public appearances. He has appeared on TV news shows 12 times in the past six months. That’s essentially on pace with Michigan GOP Rep. Mike Rogers, who led all national politicians last year with 26 appearances over 12 months. Romney has

Reclusive movie star Doris Day greeted fans with a rare smile and a wave from her balcony on Thursday as she rang in her 90th birthday. The Oscar-nominee appeared in great spirits as she made the rather regal gesture from her home in Carmel-by-the-Sea, on California´s north coast - a quiet little enclave also home to Clint Eastwood - the first time she´s been seen in public since 2008.
