Netanyahu rejects Obama’s offer: Ceasefire “is not even on the agenda”

How could Israel’s Prime Minister take anything Obama says seriously?

The rest of the world doesn’t, friend or foe and neither do we. 

Netanyahu  was ‘Humiliated’ by Obama Snub

Let’s not forget Obama refused to meet with Netanyahu in the oval office.

Jul 12, 2014 

netanyahu_obamaIt has been the pattern for decades now: whenever Israel starts to defend itself, the U.S. President tries to get it to stop. But now that Israel is dealing with a fanatically and consistently anti-Israel President, more and more Israelis (and pro-Israel Americans) are realizing that Israel is on its own against the jihadi onslaught. And so this time the President’s word doesn’t carry as much weight as it did in the past.

An update on this story. “Obama speaks with Netanyahu, offering to broker ceasefire with Hamas,” by Michael Wilner, Jerusalem Post, July 11, 2014:

VIENNA — The United States is prepared to facilitate a cessation of hostilities between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip, US President Barack Obama told Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu by phone today.

In the call, Obama “reiterated the United States’ strong condemnation of continuing rocket fire into Israel by Hamas and other terrorist organizations in Gaza and reaffirmed Israel’s right to defend itself against these attacks,” the White House said in a readout of the conversation.

But Netanyahu has ruled out a ceasefire with Hamas in the short-term. On the contrary, the Israeli leader has vowed a series of additional stages to Operation Protective Edge— his government’s response to continued rocket fire on Israeli towns and cities, after Hamas, a terrorist organization, stockpiled tens of thousands of rockets in the coastal territory over the last several years.

A ceasefire is “not even on the agenda,” Netanyahu told members of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, just hours before his call with the US leader.

Obama also expressed concern, the press secretary’s office continued, “about the risk of further escalation and emphasized the need for all sides to do everything they can to protect the lives of civilians and restore calm.” ( A complete lode)

State Dept. ignored warnings of Iranian efforts to destabilize Iraq

crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

Should we have planned on anything less with a Obama/Kerry State Department? 

Only Hillary could have done a better job of remaining in denial.

Jun 16, 2014 at 5:41pm 

Shakir WaheibThe Iranians aided Shi’ite militants and Sunni al-Qaeda forces against coalition forces in Iraq. And now the Obama Administration is seriously considering aiding the Iranians against Sunni jihadists. The incoherence of Obama foreign policy is staggering.

 

State Department counterterrorism officials warned in late April that Iran had “trained, funded, and provided guidance” to ethnic Iraqi terror groups bent on destabilizing the country.

The April warning appears to directly contradict and undermine comments last week by a State Department spokeswoman claiming that the United States and Iran have a “shared interest.”

As Iraqi militants continue to wage attacks and seize territory, the State Department has signaled that it is willing to work with neighboring Iran to stabilize the country. They have even raised the idea of discussing Iraq on the sidelines of the ongoing nuclear discussions taking place in Vienna.

However, the recent outreach to Iran runs counter to the State Department’s own Country Report on Terrorism issued just six weeks ago.

That report warned that Iran is building a terror network across the globe and that it was specifically seeking to undermine U.S. goals in Iraq by fostering terror groups on both sides of the ethnic Arab divide in Iraq.

Obama to free Gitmo terrorist ‘because he took up yoga’

crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

Obama will continue to pander to the anti-war faction of his party to little avail.

gitmo1

Currently there are no prisons in the U.S. capable of taking GITMO prisoners of war.

Should Obama some how use an executive order to close down GITMO it will come back and bite him in the ass by many members of his own party up for election. 

The New York Post

If you thought President Obama’s release of five top Taliban commanders in exchange for POW Bowe Bergdahl was bad, wait until you see what his Gitmo parole board plans.

Desperate to empty the Guantanamo Bay prison by the end of his term, Obama quietly is giving “get out of jail free” cards for the flimsiest of excuses.

One al Qaeda suspect captured in Afghanistan is considered reformed because he took up yoga and read a biography of the Dalai Lama. Another is eligible for release because of his “positive attitude.”

And one longtime detainee, a former bodyguard for Osama bin Laden, is now harmless because he’s going to start a “milk and honey farm.”

The Periodic Review Board already helped clear 78 of the remaining 149 prisoners for release, documents show, and has scheduled more hearings for this summer.

Many of these men were dubbed “forever prisoners” because of the threat they posed to the US — with intelligence officials warning that, if free, they would return to the jihad to kill Americans.

Based on past cases, that’s a good bet.

In a report on detainee recidivism, Obama’s own director of national intelligence this year documented that 178, or 29 percent, of the 614 prisoners already transferred from the prison have been confirmed to have, or are suspected of having, re-engaged in terrorism.

That means for every three freed from Gitmo, one has rejoined the war against us. Intelligence analysts admit their ability to track all former detainees is limited, so the recidivism rate may, in fact, be much higher.

One notorious recidivist, Abdullah Gulam Rasoul, became the Taliban’s operations commander in southern Afghanistan soon after his 2007 release from Gitmo. He was blamed for masterminding a surge in roadside attacks against American troops and organizing assaults on US aircraft in Afghanistan.

Another repeat terrorist is Said Ali al-Shihri, who after his 2007 release ran al Qaeda’s Yemeni branch and helped plan the deadly bombing of the US Embassy there.

Already, one of the five Taliban leaders freed last week in exchange for Bergdahl — Mullah Noorullah Noori — has pledged to return to fight Americans in Afghanistan.

Is Michelle running for the Senate?

crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

michelle_obama_2016_bumper_sticker

Several questions  immediately come to mind.

Could Mooch handle the step down from royalty and why in the world would she want to live in Chicago when she could become a baroness in a Detroit ghetto where she and what’s his name belong?

The White House Dossier

By Keith Koffler

June 5, 2014

michelle walking in“She be graceful”

First Lady Michelle Obama is everywhere. She’s traveling to China. She’s raising money for Democrats. She’s issuing plaintive tweets seeking the rescue of the kidnapped Nigerian girls.

She’s wading uncharacteristically deep into the Washington political mud pit to defend her school lunch program against Republicans, assailing them last Tuesday for opting to “play politics with our kids’ health.”

She struck a similar tone in a New York Times op-ed two days later, accusing Republicans of trying to “override science” and suggesting they join parents and “put our children’s interests first.”

So what’s with the bolder profile?

Sure,  Obama cares strongly about the things she is doing. That she does care in fact begs another question: Is caring all that’s going on here? Does she have political ambitions that would allow her to pursue an agenda while working to cement her husband’s legacy?

michelle -- nutriation factsSpeculation about a possible political future for Michelle Obama has naturally centered on the White House. But that’s the wrong place — at least for now.

Illinois has a Republican senator, Mark Kirk, and he is up for reelection in 2016. He’ll be formidable, particularly given his brave recovery from a stroke. But Illinois is a heavily Democratic state, and the race could be close.

No Illinois Democratic candidate would bring the star power and nationwide fundraising capacity that Obama would.

She has proven herself a superb speaker on behalf of her pet projects and is now a veteran campaigner for her husband. She’s also remained highly popular — even as the president’s ratings have plummeted.

She could represent the Democrats’ best chance to pick up a desperately needed — and winnable — seat. A December 2012 Public Policy Polling survey put her ahead of Kirk, 51 percent to 40 percent. Democratic leaders’ pressure on her to run  might get intense.

michelle in gardenBut the most acute pressure could come from within. Anyone who has listened to her speeches, particularly on the campaign trail, understands that she is a dedicated liberal, who believes unreservedly in the power of government to transform lives.

Obama views the battle between Republicans and Democrats as a struggle for the soul of the nation.

“Who are we?” she repeatedly asked while campaigning in 2012. She said the election result would affect the country “for decades.”

Five New Hashtags for Michelle Obama

crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

Apparently Dr. Spencer was being kind, he forgot the most important # of al.

#Wide Load (brakes frequently to eat junk food)#

May 25, 2014 

michelle-obama-bring-back-our-girls.jpg.pagespeed.ic_.58C1CJ5bQA-300x224

Over at PJ Media I offer my contribution to the New Diplomatic Style:

Michelle Obama’s #BringBackOurGirls hashtag, although taken up among the glitterati, has been ridiculed as emblematic of her husband’s weakness and lack of will in the face of Islamic jihad.

This is, however, unfair not only to Mrs. Obama, but to Sylvester Stallone, Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes, Mel Gibson and the other noted human rights activists who have endorsed this campaign.

After all, it is not the only Obama administration response to the kidnapping, forcible conversion to Islam, and sex slavery of these girls (in accord with Qur’an 4:3, 4:24, 33:50, etc.).

The administration has now announced that it is sending U.S. troops to help find these girls. Eighty troops. To Chad.

I am not in favor of Wilsonian “nation-building” military adventures in Muslim countries with no tradition of or desire for a pluralistic society that accords equal rights to women and non-Muslims, or for republican rule that would approve laws other than those mandated by Allah in the Qur’an and Sunnah.

However, it would be hard to oppose an all-out effort directed toward eradicating Boko Haram – that is, the Party of the People of the Sunnah for Dawah and Jihad – from the face of the earth.

That, of course, is not what Obama is doing. He is sending a tiny number of troops to a country the girls are not in, so as to engage in aerial reconnaissance to try to find them.

But what does a kidnapped schoolgirl who has been forcibly converted to Islam and married to a jihadist look like from the air? U.S. officials know that these girls have been dispersed, which only emphasizes that this initiative is more about style than substance – just like Michelle’s hashtag campaign.

But if that’s what U.S. diplomacy looks like in the Obamanation, then let’s make the most of it. Here are six more hashtags that Michelle (and Rocky, and Han Solo, and Nino Brown) can use to declare their righteous indignation before the world:…

2. #StopHatingJews
Muhammad Badie, the Muslim Brotherhood’s general guide, had his day in court in Egypt last week, and strongly rejected charges that the Brotherhood had committed acts of violence against the Egyptian people. “

We have fought only against the Jews,” Badie declared, “and Kamel Al-Sharif may testify about the conduct of the Muslim Brotherhood in the [1948] war in Palestine. We fought against the Jews. The Israeli strategic research institute wrote in a report: ‘Our greatest enemies in the world are the Muslim Brotherhood.’ This is an honor for us, yet now we are being accused of conspiring with Hamas against the Egyptian people. This is an absolute lie.”

The idea that Badie would think that the Brotherhood’s making war against “the Jews” (not “the Israelis”) would be an exonerating factor, and that his accusers would take it as such, shows the depth and breadth of Islamic antisemitism.

That is not surprising, considering that the Qur’an designates the Jews as “the most intense of the people in animosity toward the believers” (5:82), but it certainly militates against the “peace process” that Michelle’s husband has been so ardently pushing, heedless of Palestinian intransigence, unilateralism, and taste for genocidal rhetoric.

Surely a well-worded hashtag would devastate Badie and other Islamic antisemites, and more than do the trick here.

1. #Don’tBoastOfConqueringUs

Recently video surfaced of Islamic jihadists from various countries fighting in Iraq as part of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS). Quoting the Qur’an and chanting “Allahu akbar,” they declared “to the tyrants and infidels wherever they may be”:

“We say to you, as the Prophet Muhammad said: ‘We have brought slaughter upon you.’” Chanting, “We are Muslims! We are Muslims!,” they burned their passports – after one brandished a sword and exclaimed: “Know this, oh infidels: By Allah, we shall cleanse the Arabian Peninsula of you, you filth. We shall conquer Jerusalem from you, oh Jews! We shall conquer Rome and Andalusia, Allah willing.”

This declaration of Islamic conquest and slaughter flies in the face of the understanding of Islam as benign, tolerant and pluralistic that we must accept in the U.S. on pain of charges of “bigotry” and “Islamophobia.”

They will conquer Jerusalem, Rome, and Spain, will they? Not if our hashtags have anything to say about it!

I shudder to think of the embarrassment and shame these jihadis will feel when they consult their Twitter feeds.

White House Was Angered by Obama’s Peace Prize, Which Still Haunts the Nobel Committee

crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

Why would the White House be angered? Obama was the recipient of an unearned Nobel Peace Prize. They are finally getting the message he was played for the putz he is.

He didn’t earn it so what’s the problem?

Some committee members accused of being fawning, ‘Starstruck,” the same as U.S. “hair-brained voters.”

Utenrisk Departementet Norway

Utenrisk Departementet NorwayIn 2009 then White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel reportedly laid into the Norwegian ambassador to the United States, Wegger Christian Strømmen, after it was announced that President Obama was awarded that year’s Nobel Peace Prize.

Strømmen’s colleague, Morten Wetland, says that the White House was angry about the award, which immediately proved controversial. Obama’s prize has taken center stage in the debate about re-appointments to the Norwegian Nobel Committee this year.

“Many people thought awarding Obama the Peace Prize was pretty embarrassing,” Wetland tells Dagens Næringsliv, a Norwegian business newspaper. Wetland was the Norwegian ambassador to the United Nations at the time of the award.

“An American president would like to set his own agenda. In this case he was forced into a role that he did not seek. Besides, it was only one year into his first presidential term. It can seem as if someone did this to get Barack Obama to visit their country.”

The former official says that was the most embarrassing day he had on the job as an ambassador to the U.N. “My coworker in Washington got a tongue-lashing from Obama’s chief of staff,” Wetland says.

“Getting yelled at is a big part of an ambassador’s job. They [Obama’s people] probably went after the first person they could get their hands on, and Emanuel is known for being profane and direct. The word ‘fawning’ was used.”  

As Reason reported at the time, the awarding of the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize was all about Nobel Committee Chairman Thorbjørn Jagland seeking press for his organization by stroking the new American president.

His “grand thinking,” as commentators put it, was that such an award would be impossible to ignore. In public statements, Jagland made it sound as if the prize was the international community’s endorsement of the president’s electoral victory.

Wetland’s op-ed about Emanuel’s conversation with Ambassador Strømmen was spurred by upcoming decisions about the membership of the Nobel Peace Prize Committee.

Several of the members of the Nobel Committee are up for re-appointment this fall. There are bound to be changes, as the majority in the Storting, the Norwegian Parliament with the power to select members, changed during the elections last fall.

Many are arguing that Jagland should not be re-appointed, and the prize that was given to Obama is among the foremost arguments.

Wetland is among the people arguing that the next round of appointments should include candidates from outside Norway, such as former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan or Carl Bildt, the Swedish Minister for Foreign Affairs and former prime minister with several international diplomatic appointments under his belt. The Committee has never had foreign members before.

Wetland says that most people considered the award as very strange at the time. “We must ensure prevention of the impression that we here in Norway can get ‘starstruck’ and appreciate fancy state visits. Even if this has not been the case so far, there is cause to be aware of the issue.”

White House curbs major counterterrorism drill designed to test response to car bombs and chemical weapons strike

InspireConcern about Islamic jihad terrorism is, as we all know, a manifestation of “hatred,” “bigotry” and “Islamophobia.”

But here, this is what could go wrong: “Disclosure of the curtailed exercise comes as al Qaeda recently issued new threats to conduct car bomb attacks in Washington.

The White House sharply curbed a major counter-terrorism drill scheduled for Tuesday in Washington that was designed to test the federal government response to threats of car bombs attacks and a chemical weapons strike on the Metro subway system.

The exercise, code-named Eagle Horizon 2014, was cut back instead to small-scale communications checks within federal agencies.

The transfer of government functions through groups of emergency personnel located at remote secure locations as part of so-called “continuity of government” operations was scrapped, according to Obama administration security officials.

Pentagon Plans To Reduce the Size of the Army

Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

Would Ronald Reagan have done this?  When the U.S. still the worlds super power negotiates with the likes of Iran they must do so with the threat of military force on the table. 

carter-miss-me-yet

NOT LIKE WHEN JIMMY CARTER OCCUPIED THE WHITE HOUSE.

Jimmy promised the works at Rockwell International that he would continue to fund the B1 Bomber, of course to get votes. 

He lied and cancelled the project immediately upon inauguration. 

The number of planes that were put into service though not as stealthy as the B-2 Bomber was a work horse during the gulf wars.

Only members of the private sector will get the day off with pay.  Three other useless government holidays will be cancelled.

We start with scrapping Labor Day which is a day of pay for overpaid union workers. Then Birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr., King was good on Civil Rights but he plagiarized his doctoral thesis, and Columbus day as it’s doubtful Columbus discovered America.  

So now that we are temporarily stuck with Obama, who is destroying our country and our military at the same time.

History will record that Obama edged out Carter significantly as the worst occupant of the White House in U.S. History.

Reason Magazine.

Credit: David B. Gleason/wikimediaCredit: David B. Gleason/wikimediaThe New York Times is reporting that the Pentagon plans to reduce the Army to its smallest size since before the Second World War.

According to the Times, the new Pentagon spending proposals, which have been endorsed by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, will ensure that the U.S. is capable of defending itself while being too small to engage in long-term foreign occupations like those in Iraq and Afghanistan.

From the Times:

The proposal, described by several Pentagon officials on the condition of anonymity in advance of its release on Monday, takes into account the fiscal reality of government austerity and the political reality of a president who pledged to end two costly and exhausting land wars. A result, the officials argue, will be a military capable of defeating any adversary, but too small for protracted foreign occupations.

An unnamed official told the Times that the reduced Army will “be agile. It will be capable. It will be modern. It will be trained.” This sounds similar to the sort of military force that the French recently deployed in Mali and the Central African Republic. First class, but not equipped for nation building. 

The proposals will reportedly shrink the Army to between 440,000 and 450,000 troops in the coming years. The Army’s highest number of troops post-9/11 was 570,000.

The U.S. is not the only country planning to cut the size of its army. The British government is planning on reducing the size of the British Army to 82,000 by 2020. In 2010, the British Army had 102,260 troops. The decision was criticized by former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, who said that the reductions would hamper the U.K.’s ability to be a “full partner” with the U.S.
