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.

New grand jury expected to be seated
in Gov. Rick Perry´s ethics case
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article

AUSTIN — A Texas judge was expected to seat a grand jury Monday in an investigation into whether Gov. Rick Perry abused his power by vetoing funding for public corruption prosecutors last year. Special State District Judge Bert Richardson was to oversee the impaneling in Austin. The governor’s office didn’t return messages seeking comment, but The Austin-American Statesman and KVUE-TV reported that Perry took the unusual step of hiring a criminal defense attorney to represent him. The attorney, David Botsford, did not return calls from The Associated Press seeking comment. In June, the governor threatened to veto funding approved by the Texas Legislature

A Pitiful Pulitzer Pick

The Pulitzer Prize board has just managed to do the impossible. It has awarded a prize that deserves to be spoken of in the same conversation with its risible 1932 award to the New York Times correspondent Walter Duranty for articles whitewashing the evils of Stalinist Russia. The award of the Public Service prize to the Washington Post and the Guardian for serving as a mouthpiece for Edward Snowden is an attempt by the journalistic establishment to put its stamp of approval on the actions of one of the most destructive traitors in U.S. history—a former NSA contractor who has done

Texan, 23, Headed To State Prison
For Urinating On The Alamo

A Texas man was sentenced yesterday to 18 months in state prison for urinating on the Alamo. Daniel Athens, a 23-year-old El Paso resident, pleaded guilty earlier this year to a criminal mischief charge in connection with the April 2012 incident at the Texas shrine. While Athens could have faced a maximum of two years in custody, a plea deal saved him up to six months in custody. Athens was also ordered to pay $4000 in restitution by District Judge Ray Olivarri. Since Athens is not eligible for parole, he will have to serve the entirety of his 18-month sentence. As detailed

Republicans, let´s get it over with. Fast forward to the finish line. Avoid the long and winding primary road. It can only weaken the nominee. And we know who he—yes, he—has to be. Not Jeb Bush, who plainly is unsuited to be president. He is insufficiently hostile to Mexicans. He holds heretical views on the Common Core, which, as we well know, is the defining issue of our time. And he´s a Bush. Another installment of a political dynasty just isn´t going to fly with the American people, who want some fresh blood in their politics. Unless the dynasty is

When I first started hearing people on the political left describe themselves with some frequency as progressive back in the 1990s, the term did not seem tethered to the epoch-defining, early-20th-century spasm of moral crusading and government centralization that helped give us everything from trust busting to Prohibition to the Federal Reserve. As articulated by champions like Ralph Nader and Molly Ivins, the progressive label was both a way to get out from under the generation-old baggage of liberal-a term Ronald Reagan and others had turned into an epithet-and to differentiate lefties from seemingly apologetic triangulators like Bill Clinton and

For political junkies desperate for clues to the hottest House, Senate and governors’ races around the country, April is the cruelest month. While Illinois and Texas primaries were held last month, the 48 remaining state contests don’t start up again for three weeks. Here’s the good news for those of us hoping to determine whether Democrats or Republicans will be celebrating in the fall: From early May to early September, we’ll have a steady stream of conventions, primaries and runoffs to keep us busy. We’ve already learned a little from the first two contests. On March 4, Texas told us two contradictory

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Over 80 members of the Brandeis University faculty sent a letter to the school’s president earlier this month, demanding the school withdraw its honorary degree invitation to women’s rights activist and critic of Islam Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Brandeis rescinded the invitation to Hirsi Ali last week, prompting a public backlash from Hirsi Ali’s supporters. In the April 6 letter, faculty members called on Brandeis President Fred Lawrence to drop Hirsi Ali from the ceremony because of comments she has made about her opposition to Islam. “We are writing to urge you to rescind immediately the invitation to Ms. Ayaan Hirsi

He may not have been able to attend the Sochi Olympics, but Vice President Joe Biden is set to return to the world sporting event stage this summer by hanging out at the World Cup, the White House announced today. Biden is very excited. "You know, we have our Super Bowl, we have our World Series, we have the NBA Finals, we have March Madness, but my Lord, it is nothing quite like the World Cup," he said today as he and Secretary of State John Kerry unveiled the World Cup trophy. Kerry, meanwhile, stuck with boring comments like "I can´t think

Obama´s Numbers Worse News For Democrats

Bad as Obama’s poll numbers are, they bode worse for Congressional Democrats. Obama is being buoyed by continued strong support from Democrat voters. The problem for Congressional Democrats is that November’s election outcome will not be determined in Democrat strongholds. Recent Quinnipiac polling data (released April 2, of 1,578 registered voters nationwide, with a MOE of +/-2.5%) showed the president with a deeply negative rating on his handling of the economy: 40% approval and 55% disapproval. In his sixth year in office, and the fifth year after the recession, 74% of respondents still rated the economy as “not so good” to

During her brief but lucrative stint as president of Wal-Mart’s charitable foundation in 2012, Sylvia Matthews Burwell received at least $750,000 in bonuses from an organization that doles out hundreds of millions of dollars in contributions but keeps a tight lid on its own compensation practices, records show. Ms. Burwell spent a little more than a year running Wal-Mart’s foundation before President Obama tapped her to be his budget chief last year — and then last week asked her to take over as health and human services secretary. Her White House biography touts her key private-sector experience as president of the massive

The Supreme Court has made pretty clear that putting your money where your mouth is deserves broad protection as a form of free political speech. The justices are about to consider whether outright lying in a campaign deserves a similar First Amendment shield. The court’s recent decisions easing the flow of generous campaign contributions already shifted the electoral landscape. If the court finds that even the most patently outrageous statements about candidates may not be barred by law, those two decisions combined could expand the rhetorical battlefield of the midterm elections and raise the attack ad volume as never before.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no."

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Funny question in the headline, yes?

Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
