Obama’s animus
Power Line, by Scott Johnson

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 8/28/2014 1:22:05 PM

No surprise here, but I had overlooked what Peter Wehner has extracted from the Jerusalem Post: Speaking extensively on US relations with Jerusalem since the end of the latest round of peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians last April, and throughout Operation Protective Edge, a candid [former US special envoy for Israeli-Palestinian Negotiations Martin] Indyk said at times US President Barack Obama has become “enraged” at the Israeli government, both for its actions and for its treatment of his chief diplomat, US Secretary of State John Kerry… Gaza has had “very negative impact” on US-Israel relations, he continued.

"Enraged" is a very strong word. It borders on "out of control anger". A man beating his helpless wife is ´enraged´. People who are involved in road rage incidents are ´enraged´. When bulls fight they are enraged, completely at the mercy of their hormones during mating season.

Øbama ´enraged´...not likely. I doubt he has the capacity or the energy to get that emotionally involved in anything. Since he has no personal moral fiber, why would he expend the effort to actually care so much about anything? He might get miffed or mildly irritated over a bad golf shot. But, even there, he can always take a Mulligan...he´s the Prez and he gots a pen!

The only time Barky´s ´enraged´ is when there is no mirror handy, or the TelePrompTer stops working.

For the headline: take out the "im" from the second word, and you´ll find out the source of all Barack´s wisdom.

#2, we had the original JPost article by Michael Wilner at

http://lucianne.com/thread/?artnum=798792

When I first read about Indyk´s interview (published in Foreign Policy) and saw the word "enraged" used two or three times, I was gobsmacked and still am. It´s not as if Indyk slipped and used the wrong word or that "enraged" is an ambivalent word--he´s being very specific here.

Reading about Indyk´s public criticism of Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations, I also raised eyebrows that "Indyk, and his team, shared in the blame, often contributing to a toxic environment for negotiators." Another strong, specific word--"toxic."

And, finally, the last paragraph:

“It’s very hard to make the argument that America now has a strategic interest in resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict,” he said. But “if Israel becomes a partisan issue in American politics, the US-Israel relationship will then be weaker as a result.”

Add to that the State Department´s comment about Indyk being a "private citizen" who can speak as he pleases, and leaving aside all the other reasons to support our ally, it´s obvious nobody in this administration gives a damn about an ally that could take out Iran´s nuclear weapon capabilities. (Again.)

SEOUL- Three U.S. citizens detained in North Korea spoke to the U.S. television channel CNN on Monday with one pleading with the United States for help and another describing his situation as "urgent". Kenneth Bae, who was arrested 18 months ago and sentenced to 15 years hard labour for attempting to bring down the state, told CNN he was working eight hours a day, six days a week, and was the only inmate at a prison camp staffed by more than 20 officials, including a doctor.

PYONGYANG, North Korea — North Korea gave foreign media access on Monday to three detained Americans who said they have been able to contact their families and — watched by officials as they spoke — called for Washington to send a high-ranking representative to negotiate for their freedom. Jeffrey Fowle and Mathew Miller said they expect to face trial within a month. But they said they do not know what punishment they could face or what the specific charges against them are. Kenneth Bae, who already is serving a 15-year term, said his health has deteriorated at the labor camp

Engel spoke Sunday on NBC’s “Meet The Press,” where he was asked by Andrea Mitchell about the “president’s reluctance to take the fight against ISIS to Syria.” “Well, I spoke to military commanders, I speak to former officials, and they are apoplectic,” he explained. “The think that this is a clear and present danger.

WASHINGTON- Cities in the United States and Western Europe are being eyed as Islamic State militants´ future targets and President Barack Obama needs to take action, U.S. lawmakers say. Without offering specifics on any threats or suggestions on how to confront them, the leaders of the Senate and House intelligence committees on Sunday prodded the White House to work to prevent the Islamic State extremists from launching attacks on U.S. soil. The bipartisan pair of lawmakers shared a dire warning about the Islamic State group, which now has control of vast swaths of Syria and Iraq, has killed civilians from

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — The University of Illinois is reminding football fans that its new smoke-free campus policy applies to tailgaters in Memorial Stadium parking lots. Signs were posted at entrances to all UI parking lots and the stadium in time for Saturday´s season-opener against Youngstown State. The campus went smoke-free on Jan. 1 after a student referendum. Hundreds of other college campuses around the country have done the same. But don´t expect a heavy-handed crackdown.

AUSTIN — A tweet mischaracterizing Gov. Rick Perry’s indictment was sent Sunday evening from his personal account, setting the social network abuzz and leaving his critics fuming. An hour later, the message was deleted, with his account calling it “unauthorized.” “I do not condone the tweet and I have taken it down,” a message from the account read at 8:20 p.m. The original tweet, which went out almost exactly an hour earlier, included a graphic mocking Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg, whose drunk-driving arrest led Perry to threaten to veto funding for the state’s Public Integrity Unit unless she resigned.

Images showing high-powered military rifles in the hands of law enforcement in Ferguson, Mo., after the police shooting of an unarmed black man focused attention on a controversial Pentagon program that supplies that kind of weaponry to local police departments. Now reports reveal how some of those guns have been lost by law enforcement officials who received the weapons. Take Huntington Beach, Calif., which was given 23 M-16 rifles and has reported one missing. “Bottom line is the gun is not here and we were suspended from the program, haven’t received anything since 1999,” Huntington Beach Police Department Lt.

If you´re out at the beach this weekend - like most Americans hope they will be - it might be an idea to look up. About 5,000 feet up, actually. That´s about where Belgian photographer Antoine Rose will be making his works of art. The self-taught snapper initially started out taking pictures of kiteboarders as head photographer of the Kiteboarding World Cup, according to Fast Company. Then, while covering finals in Ipanema and Copacabana, Rose turned his lens from the water to the beach - and that´s where the magic happened. While the resultant photos appear heavily edited - almost

Islamist militiamen stormed the residential annex of America´s embassy in Tripoli on Sunday then took the time to give curious journalists in the Libyan capital a tour. The group has taken up residence in the annex just over a month after diplomats fled to Tunisia over fears of mounting violence in the North African nation in recent months. An Associated Press journalist walked through the U.S. Embassy compound Sunday after the Dawn of Libya, an umbrella group for Islamist militias, invited onlookers inside. Windows at the compound had been broken, but it appeared most of the equipment there remained untouched.

Following a video by Malik King, in which the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is converted into the Pull Your Pants Up challenge, CNN contributor Marc Lamont Hill argued the challenge internalized the idea that black men bear a partial responsibility for attracting undue police attention. “It suggests that somehow there’s a connection between black male profiling and our pants being sagging,” Lamont Hill said. “Before black people pulled their pants down, they were still being locked up…If we continue to tell young black men that they can behave or dress or otherwise demonstrate their way out of police oppression or

The federal government is still seeking answers as to why the majority of lesbians are obese and U.S. taxpayers are footing the bill, which now totals $2.87 million. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014. The project seeks to determine why “nearly three-quarters of adult lesbians overweight or obese,” and why gay males are not. In just two years the project’s budget has nearly doubled, growing from $1.5 million to nearly $3 million today, despite fears that sequestration could jeopardize the project and other NIH funding.

ISIS is a cancer that must be stamped out, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry wrote Saturday in an opinion piece for The New York Times. Kerry called the Islamist extremist group, known for beheadings, crucifixions and terror campaigns against religious and ethnic minorities, a "unifying threat to a broad array of countries" that needs to be confronted. His article appears in the aftermath of the political uproar that engulfed the White House this week after President Barack Obama said "we don´t have a strategy" on ISIS in Syria.

Short of world war, it’s rare that a chief executive goes through a foreign policy month like President Obama’s August.

Islamic State militants beheaded an American journalist in Syria and spread their reach across the Middle East. War raged between Israel and Hamas in Gaza. In Afghanistan, U.S. plans for an orderly exit at the end of the year teetered on the brink of disaster. Russia all but invaded Ukraine and dared Obama to stop it. Libya descended

It will take two decades to rebuild the thousands of houses destroyed during Israel’s assault on Gaza, according to a recent NGO report. At least 17,000 homes were obliterated or severely damaged during the conflict, with thousands more needing substantial repairs, according to an assessment by Shelter Cluster. More than 2,100 Palestinians, most of them civilians, were killed during the conflict. In addition 71 Israelis were killed – all but six of them soldiers. But the report on Gaza’s housing stock indicates inhabitants of the densely populated strip will face a severe infrastructural burden over the coming years.

Sam officially hit waivers Saturday at 4 p.m. ET when all NFL teams had to trim their rosters down to the league-mandated 53 players. From there, the other 31 teams will have
