That’s what several outlets are reporting:
According to Al-Jarida, the Netanyahu government took the decision to strike Iran some time in 2014 soon after Israel had discovered the United States and Iran had been involved in secret talks over Iran’s nuclear program and were about to sign an agreement in that regard behind Israel’s back.
The report claimed that an unnamed Israeli minister who has good ties with the US administration revealed the attack plan to Secretary of State John Kerry, and that Obama then threatened to shoot down the Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran.
This seems so out of character for Obama and Kerry doesn’t it? Maybe Glenn Kessler over at the Washington Post’s fact checker can get on the case. Obama said he and Israel are tighter than Reggie Love’s turdcutter, and we can produce many quotes from Obama saying so, so this must be a lie. Because Obama doesn’t lie.
If this is the case, it would certainly explain the unprecedented efforts by this regime to derail Netanyahu’s speech to Congress. Don’t go out drinking anywhere tonight, Bibi. We know what happens to this administration’s enemies when that happens.
Here is Obama adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski, former Carter official and father of MSLSD’s Mika Brzezinski, telling the Daily Beast in 2009 that Obama should gladly shoot down any Israeli planes if they fly over Iraq to attack Iran:
How aggressive can Obama be in insisting to the Israelis that a military strike might be in America’s worst interest?
We are not exactly impotent little babies. They have to fly over our airspace in Iraq. Are we just going to sit there and watch?
What if they fly over anyway?
Well, we have to be serious about denying them that right. That means a denial where you aren’t just saying it. If they fly over, you go up and confront them. They have the choice of turning back or not. No one wishes for this but it could be a Liberty in reverse. [Israeli jet fighters and torpedo boats attacked the USS Liberty in international waters, off the Sinai Peninsula, during the Six-Day War in 1967. Israel later claimed the ship was the object of friendly fire.]
Nice attack plan you’ve got there. It would be a shame if a little “friendly fire” got revenge for the Liberty wouldn’t it? It also shows that Obama had a backdoor plan to screw over Israel and any anti-Iranian US allies in the Middle East from before he was elected. Enter Valerie Jarrett again.
If this warning did occur, then Netanyahu has an obligation to the notify the American public about it. This traitor thrives on secrecy, misinformation, and disinformation with the help of a state run media that never lets a story see the light of day. They cannot hide your live comments to Congress.
An American President threatens to shoot down the planes of an ally to protect a deal that allows one of our most vicious enemies to get a nuclear bomb. I understand why he wouldn’t. It is important for Israel to present a united front with the U.S. against the Arab world and admitting this unprecedented threat would probably invite aggression.
But this is just Obama in a nutshell right there. No doubt. This makes total sense and explains why our relations are at an all time low.
I seem to recall something about this last year and thought that a strike was imminent and then it disappeared from the radar. This would go a long way towards explaining why.
Linky: A great summary of where we at this exact moment from Matthew Continetti over at NRO.
As for Netanyahu, he is called “chickens***” by anonymous sources, the national security adviser says his decision to address Congress is “destructive” of the U.S.–Israel alliance, Kerry tells Congress it shouldn’t listen to Bibi because he voiced wan support for regime change in Iraq (a war that Kerry voted to authorize), the congressional liaison rallies the Congressional Black Caucus to boycott the speech, and the administration leaks to the AP its strategy “to undercut” his speech and “blunt his message that a potential nuclear deal with Iran is bad for Israel and the world.” The strategy includes media appearances and the threat of a “pointed snub” of AIPAC, which has done everything it can over the last several years to ignore or acquiesce to President Obama’s anti-Israel foreign policy.
Again, unprecedented vitriol against an ally. They would never talk about Iran this way. Or ISIS, who they can’t even name. Or Putin. Or the Taliban. Or the Muslim Brotherhood. Unreal.
Via Free Republic: Here is current US Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power in 2008 saying in an interview with UC Berkeley stating that we should cut off military aid to Israel and give it to “Palestine” and a suggestion that we should invade Israel as an occupying force to prevent them from committing genocide against Hamas. She says that it’s fundamentally not democratic but ultimately necessary.
So we see how she won her job.
I know it’s a day old story but I did read Malcolm X in college:
Holder told POLITICO that between now and his departure, probably in early March when the Senate is expected to confirm Loretta Lynch as his successor, he will call for a lower standard of proof for civil rights crimes. Such a change would make it easier for the federal government to bring charges in the case of a future Ferguson or Trayvon Martin.
“I think some serious consideration needs to be given to the standard of proof that has to be met before federal involvement is appropriate, and that’s something that I am going to be talking about before I leave office,” Holder, 64, said.
Says the guy who once launched an armed takeover of an ROTC building while in college.
Holder was then among the leaders of the Student Afro-American Society (SAAS), which demanded that the former ROTC office be renamed the “Malcolm X Lounge.” The change, the group insisted, was to be made “in honor of a man who recognized the importance of territory as a basis for nationhood.”
Making sense yet? When Eric X stormed the ROTC building, he renamed it the Malcolm X Lounge. Just harmless fun for Eric X, right? Not representative of the racist attitude that brought tears to Fuhrer Obama’s eyes at the thought of his retirement. A little more to it than that:
The ROTC headquarters was ultimately renamed the Malcolm X lounge as the SAAS organization demanded. It later became a hang-out spot for another future U.S. leader, Barack Obama, according to David Maraniss’ best-selling ”Barack Obama: The Story.”
So, you see the connection now. Eric X, while in the commission of a gun crime, storms an ROTC building on the Columbia campus and renames it the Malcolm X Lounge. Eventually, the leftwing school likes the sound of it and decides to name it that. Eventually, it becomes a “hang out spot” for Obama while he was at Columbia.
This “make it easier” standard for federal civil rights charges that he’s talking about is called “evidence”. You see, in Trayvon Martin and the Gentle Giant’s cases, there wasn’t any. Eric X wants to eliminate the need for any evidence to charge someone with a hate crime.
He has Eric X-Ray vision that can see racism in your heart and the prosecutorial power to arrest you for it.
“I would hope that I say this not to every African-American of his age but for every American, that you read The Autobiography of Malcolm X to see the transition that that man went through, from petty criminal to a person who was severely and negatively afflicted by race, to somebody who ultimately saw the humanity in all of us, and that would be a book I would recommend to everybody,” said Holder.
I’m loathe to point this out but Malcolm X’s “awakening” and how he “ultimately saw humanity in all of us” came about when he went on a hajj to Mecca and saw white people praying to Allah.
I’m also loathe to point out that Malcolm X’s assassination was ordered by Louis Farrakhan after he left the National of Islam and that Farrakhan is Barack Obama’s Hyde Park neighbor in Chicago. And like Bill Ayers, remains guilty as hell but free as a bird.
That link is from the old CBS interview where Farrakhan all but admitted his role in the assassination of Malcolm X to his widow Betty Shabazz.
By the way, there is no statute of limitation on murder and the deprivation of Malcolm X’s civil rights if you want to pursue it there Eric X. You lying, deceitful, divisive bigot.
The Hope and Change is weak with this one. An unfortunate turn of phrase from the candidate that Obama is using US taxpayer money on to overthrow Benjamin Netanyahu:
Chairman of the Labor-Hatnua list Yitzhak Herzog has once again refused to rule out joining a coalition led by Binyamin Netanyahu, instead insisting that he will be the one to form the next coalition government.
Herzog vowed that, if elected PM, in his first 100 days as prime minister he would focus on three issues in particular: solving the housing crisis, “renewing relations with the US and the (political) process with the Palestinians.”
“If need be, I will travel to Ramallah and present to the Palestinian Parliament a vision of hope,” he declared.
So, he won’t work with Netanyahu but will go surrender to whatever Hamas wants. There are no more “Palestinians”. There is only Hamas.
“I am the only one who can replace Netanyahu and therefore I am prepared to face him and discuss Israel’s burning issues.”
The only “burning issues” that Israel will be facing if Obama successfully overthrows the Israeli government is who is going to put out the nuclear fires in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem when Iran drops the bomb on them.
And if they vote for Herzog, they will have voted to destroy themselves after being unduly influenced by the Hamas in America – namely Ayatollah Obama and the Leftwing Jews who support their destruction. How could this even be a contest?
Some Yidiot goes around parroting Hope and Change after the destruction our country as suffered under that monosyllabic pablum and supposedly educated people fall for it.
Earlier today, Obama leaked his prebuttal to Benjamin Netanyahu’s upcoming speech to Congress into the absorbent pages of the New York Times:
Just four days before Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to a joint meeting of Congress, the Obama administration sought on Friday to refute the Israeli leader’s expected critique, arguing that he has failed to present a feasible alternative to American proposals for constraining Iran’s nuclear program.
A well placed military strike on Iran’s centrifuges is not a “feasible alternative”? This isn’t trying to clear the air, it’s a half-assed attempt to pollute it with his Obama’s intentionally unverifiable lies. How can you criticize what we won’t let you in on even though you most certainly are a stakeholder in this process?
This is the regime’s and the state run media’s same line of argument regarding Obamacare – you must accept the premise that something must be done about this right now and that a bad deal is better than doing nothing. It also tries to corral the opposition into “being part of the solution” to a problem that they didn’t create and want no part of to begin.
You hear it every time a moron Republican like Marco Rubio or Jeb Bush say that they want to “repeal and Replace” Obamacare. You lose me at anything after “repeal”.
As such, this line of argument should be dismissed out of hand and those that fall for it are immediately disqualified from seeking higher office.
In a briefing for reporters, senior administration officials contended that even an imperfect agreement that kept Iran’s nuclear efforts frozen for an extended period was preferable to a breakdown in talks that could allow the leadership in Tehran unfettered ability to produce enriched uranium and plutonium.
Which all presupposes that: a) Iran is going to agree to this agreement – which they haven’t and probably will not; b) that they are then going to follow the terms of an agreement – which they won’t because they are going at a breakneck pace to get a bomb as we speak; c) tie the hands of the US and our allies from placing any sanction against the Iranians while they continue to break every condition.
Just this week, it was released that the Iranian “negotiator” continues to take big dumps in John Kerry’s mouth in between holding mock military exercises where they bomb our ships. You know – our partners in this potemkin peace process.
To wit, the paid OFA trolls in the Washington Post, New York Times, Pollutico, and The Hill will attack anyone criticizing this idiocy as being in favor of an imminent invasion of Iran instead of just saying that we don’t have to give away the house to an enemy that negotiates in bad faith.
Remember when Obama wouldn’t meet with Netanyahu because it is so close to the Israeli elections? Yea, that was a lie. Remember, he doesn’t want to interfere in their election? Yea, that was a lie. Remember when he said he wasn’t notified that Netanyahu was coming beforehand? Yea, that was a lie.
I think I’m seeing a pattern here. Everything about this Iranian nuclear negotiation is lie because everything this administration does in secret is built on lies. Everything that is conducted in secret is done so because there would be public outrage if people saw the sausage of this non-existent agreement being made.
Writing Obamacare in secret. The State Department more time to review the Keystone Pipeline in secret. Writing FCC rules on Net Neutrality in secret. Investigating the IRS over targeting Tea Party groups and claiming all records were destroyed. Who is visiting the White House. Obama’s college transcripts kept sealed seven years into his term. Everything has always been a lie.
Per another unnamed lying liar in the administration filled with professional liars:
“We have made a substantial amount of progress,” the senior administration official acknowledged. “Ultimately, Iran has to make a very significant political decision to allow the flexibility to close this deal.”
I hate assumptions. A reporter might ask “What progress has been made?” But we know there is none. In Obamaworld, the fact that we are talking, and by “talking” I mean you screaming at me, is considered a success.
So let’s piss off Saudi Arabia and leave Israel threatened with destruction while we are screaming at them to not interfere with our freeing up billions to Iran to help them building a nuclear arsenal.
I guarantee you, Obama would give Iran some of our nuclear weapons if they would agree to this fantasy land accord. Because that is what Bill Richardson did with North Korea in the 90s. He gave them two nuclear reactors and then acted surprised when they let off a bomb. It’s “fair” to give Iran nuclear weapons because Israel has nukes and that’s not fair.
Plus, this is supposed to be a feather in John Kerry’s hat, a hat that he has to this day, as a success story for him to run for President again. This is his last chance and it’s Hitlery’s last chance.
Luckily, having both of the last two Secretariats of State on the same ticket while we see the fruits of their success burning brightly in the Middle East, smoldering after the Boston Marathon, the U.S. giving Hamas $400M to build terrorist tunnels into Gaza, having terrorist training camps in Libya post-Hilary’s War, the evacuation of the U.S. embassy in Yemen following Iran’s takeover of that country, Russia pressing the reset button several times into the backs of its opposition on the steps of the Kremlin while invading every neighbor they can afford to, etc., etc., etc., may convince Retarded America that Horseface McKetchup and Monica Lewinsky’s Ex-boyfriend’s Wife might not be the best this formerly great country has to offer.
It might. I don’t know. I have zero faith in the people in this country. When the schools were lost, the voters followed.
Call it the Voxification of journalism. In the reverse evolution chart that begins with non-editorializing journalism and runs through to the knuckle dragging click-baiters at Gawker and Salon we find a new species; Mendax Maximus.
This newly discovered beast attracts readers in a similar fashion as its slightly more evolved cousins. With the exception that its premises don’t even have to be true. It attracts a readership that isn’t concerned with putting out good ideas or even calling out the opposition’s bad ones. It plays to the lowest common denominator, the destruction of the opponent by any means possible – deception included.
Exhibit A: Scott Walker Wants Colleges to Stop Reporting Sexual Assaults
Under Walker’s budget, universities would no longer have to report the number of sexual assaults that take place on a campus to the Department of Justice. Under Walker’s plan, university employees who witness a sexual assault would no longer have to report it.
There are no policy recommendations in Walker’s budget how or what would replace these reporting mechanisms. The Governor simply instructs that they should be deleted.
(No link for Jezebel)
Only one problem – it didn’t happen.
U. of Wisconsin asks Walker to remove redundant sexual assault report requirement
Also note that this breed also seems to have only vestigial traits of shame or integrity.
Also, I'm not gonna apologize for reporting what was in the budget. Because that was in the budget. Ask your gov. to apologize for bad optix

Well, it’s not really a throwback if you’re asshole-deep in it today! Let’s take a look, shall we?
First, COOTUS is using yet another Executive Order to backdoor gun control by banning ammunition.
“The Obama administration was unable to ban America’s most popular sporting rifle through the legislative process, so now it’s trying to ban commonly owned and used ammunition through regulation,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director of the NRA-ILA, the group’s policy and lobby shop. “The NRA and our tens of millions of supporters across the country will fight to stop President Obama’s latest attack on our Second Amendment freedoms.”
Whatever it takes for the children, right boss?
Next, COOTUS’ puppets at the FCC have pushed through the innocuously named “net-neutrality rules” so that the layabouts at the Fed now have something to do – namely destroy the free flow of digital content, pile on more and more taxes and regulations and determine what content is given priority. I’ll let you guess how all that will work out.
Republican Commissioner Ajit Pai, who delivered some of the most scathing criticism of the plan Thursday, warned the policy represents a “monumental shift” to “government control of the Internet.”
Further, he accused the FCC of bending to the will of Obama, who last fall came out in favor of such a sweeping regulatory plan.
Pai said the FCC was reversing course from past positions for one reason: “President Obama told us to do so.”
He warned of a litany of negative consequences, intended or not, from the net neutrality plan. He said it allows rate regulation — and, ultimately, rates will go up and broadband service will slow.
Pai said that while the plan defers a decision on applying a service fee to Internet bills — much like is applied to phone bills — that surely will change.
Federal prosecutors in New York’s Brooklyn-based Eastern District pursued cases against secret, unnamed “John Doe” defendants 58 times since Loretta Lynch became head prosecutor in May 2010. Two of the 58 are terrorism cases.
Eastern District prosecutors have also sought permission to close the courtroom to the public for 11 different Doe cases during the same period, and judges have granted permission in at least 10 of the cases, as recently as February 12.
Critics are concerned the practice may infringe the Constitution’s guarantee of a public trial.
“While pseudonyms may be appropriate in exceptional cases, the courts should always opt for more transparent methods of protecting sensitive information when available,” said Lee Rowland, staff attorney of the ACLU Speech, Privacy & Technology Project. “The disproportionate number of John Doe cases in the Eastern District is certainly a cause for concern; complete secrecy about the parties in a case should never be a default option.”
Speaking of transparency, I remember when 3 billion was a lot of money. But it’s none of our damn business what the Feds do with our tax dollars.
The U.S. Treasury Department has rebuffed a request by House Ways and Means Chairman Rep. Paul Ryan, R- Wis., to explain $3 billion in payments that were made to health insurers even though Congress never authorized the spending through annual appropriations.
At issue are payments to insurers known as cost-sharing subsidies. These payments come about because President Obama’s healthcare law forces insurers to limit out-of-pocket costs for certain low income individuals by capping consumer expenses, such as deductibles and co-payments, in insurance policies. In exchange for capping these charges, insurers are supposed to receive compensation.
What’s tricky is that Congress never authorized any money to make such payments to insurers in its annual appropriations, but the Department of Health and Human Services, with the cooperation of the U.S. Treasury, made them anyway.
Last but certainly not least, COOTUS is threatening retribution against any ICE agents who dare to enforce our nation’s immigration laws.
“Not only are we going to have to win this legal fight.. but ultimately we’re still going to pass a law through Congress. The bottom line is I’m using all the legal power invested in me in order to solve this problem.”
“If somebody’s working for ICE … and they don’t follow the policy, there’s going to be consequences to it.”
This narcissistic bastard pledged six years ago that he was going to remake Amerikkka with our without the other allegedly co-equal branches of government and he’s making good on his promise. With cowards like McConnell, Boehner, Corker, Alexander, Graham and the rest of the GOP bending over and grabbing their ankles every time COOTUS says so, there’s not much hope for liberty going forward. This country does not even remotely resemble the one in which I was raised. I wish I could put my hat on backwards, watch the Oscars and suddenly become interested in the moronic celebrity worship that rules this culture, but, for some reason I still care. I need a drink.
No resemblance at all:
Ooo. Ooo. Ooo. Ahh! Ahh! Amazing Black Square.
None, I tells ya. None.
Or as CNN calls them “militants“. Reinventing Algebra for the 21st Century no doubt.
It worked for Rome. Well, almost everyone in Rome.
Look, guys. I understand that no Democrats in the Senate are going to vote to impeach this traitor in the White House. But he’s daring the Republicans to. He is threatening federal workers to violate federal law or else they are going to be fired from their jobs or worse:
“Until we pass a law through Congress, the executive actions we’ve taken are not going to be permanent; they are temporary. There are going to be some jurisdictions and there may be individual ICE official or Border Control agent not paying attention to our new directives. But they’re going to be answerable to the head of Homeland Security because he’s been very clear about what our priorities will be,” Obama said, according to a partial transcript provided by the pool reporter.
“Not only are we going to have to win this legal fight.. but ultimately we’re still going to pass a law through Congress. The bottom line is I’m using all the legal power invested in me in order to solve this problem.”
“If somebody’s working for ICE … and they don’t follow the policy, there’s going to be consequences to it.”
He joked about using the IRS to audit his enemies too and we saw that he followed through on that threat. We are already so far beyond High Crimes and Misdemeanors at this point. Republicans laid their cards down before the flop and said they would never lift a finger against Obama.
Well, assholes – he heard you loud and clear and ran with it.
This would be a question to any hardened Leftist:
Imagine the CEO of a big corporation, in some big, gray corporation building, sitting behind his burlap sacks with dollar bill signs on them and chomping on his cigar sends out an e-mail ordering his Accounting, Tax, and Legal Departments to do whatever they can to evade paying their taxes or they are going to be fired.
He tells them, “Don’t worry. We’re lobbying to have the law changed. It’s not changed yet but our legislators have heard us and we’re not going to suffer because they haven’t done their job yet!”
You’d want him to be frogmarched out of that building wouldn’t you? Arrested. Prosecuted. And any underlings who were complicit more than likely.
Well, this is no different at all. He is violating his oath of office to faithfully execute the laws.
Implicit in his statement is that there is no law in place to justify what he is doing. He is making verbal commands. He is abolishing two co-equal branches of government by bypassing Congress to write a law, as if he would sign one a Republican Congress sent him anyway, and ignoring the Judiciary out of hand. A more strident judge and a different situation would be arresting him for contempt of court.
His minion at DHS is complicit in this criminal conspiracy. As is his minion at the inappropriately named Justice Department. Same thing with the FCC and so-called Net Neutrality.
This is the definition of a tyranny. It is unconstitutional. It is an impeachable offense. We are no longer a republic but a monarchy who has laws abolished with the wave of a hand.
I’d ask the Leftists what they think of this but this is what they have always wanted. A “benevolent” dictatorship as long as they get to be the dictator. And that’s why you all are fucking totalitarians and I am glad that I’ve treated every single one of you accordingly over the years. I never had any illusions about what deceitful pieces of shit you were and are.
For ICE, I know this economy sucks because the guy who is ordering you to violate the laws you swore to uphold is also the one responsible for that too. But a message has to be sent and there should be resignations in protest from the top on down and the governors of the border states should call out the National Guard. It should not be ICE’s position to be forced between violating a federal court’s ruling or fear of retribution from an out of control dictator making up rules as he goes along. You are not obliged to follow an order asking you to break the law. This is the same law you’d enforce to the letter for a German, French, Swedish, or Chinese immigrant. This is a request from a President to violate equal protection laws in favor of one race of people.
How about No Speeding Tickets for Whites Day? Extra Ice Cream Toppings for Gays Day. No Immigration Laws for Hispanics Day…wait, we’ve already got that one.
This is more than just Obama pandering to what he hopes will be an illegal immigrant voting base that will turn this country into a third world shithole with a new permanent underclass he can buy off with food stamps. He has officially sparked a constitutional crisis on purpose and dared Republicans do anything about it.
When the history books write about the sparks that led to the Second Civil War, this is one of those moments. And history will be especially unkind to the Mitch McConnells and John Boehner who sat on their hands as these tyrannies went unanswered. The Courts cannot save you when their rulings will not be followed.
…Shoving all those Pinocchios where the sun doesn’t shine.
Does former Mayor Giuliani not listen to Obama’s speeches? The president has consistently expressed love of country and extolled the virtues of the United States in many speeches, while also at times acknowledging what he considered flaws and mistakes made in the past (what critics have labeled “an apology tour”).
Here are a few examples from Obama:
This is the WaPo’s “fact checker” getting all animated at Rudy Giuliani’s observation that Obama is just not that into the whole American Experience thing.
I’ll save the perfunctory recitations of “love of country” Kessler maintains as evidence that Obama is, in fact, so in love with America that we need to take out a restraining order against him. Usually in the context of “only in a country like this could a great guy like me become President” or the usual county fair, we can do anything if we work as A Collective.
Giuliani must have muted the sound whenever Obama spoke. He certainly has every right to his opinion about the tenor of the president’s remarks. But he has no business claiming something that is so factually incorrect – or easily disproved. He earns four Pinocchios.
Giuliani’s catching hell because he is directly over the target.
The issue isn’t whether Obama has ever said he loves this country. He clearly has. He never would get elected saying that he despises his country. The issue is that he’s bald-faced liar because every action he takes is through the prism of American being the force for ill in the world, conceived in slavery, that everything we have achieved was stolen from someone else, and that we need to be taken down a notch or ten. We need to get off our high horse. A horse that we probably stole from an Indian after we gave him blankets filled with smallpox.
When your impassioned defense of your, not mine, your President’s patriotism comes two or three days after he names a fucking Japanese Internment Camp as a national monument, there is a tremendous disconnect in attacking the guy whose eyes are working and being obtuse and pretending to not see his point.
And why do I spend my Sunday thinking about this stuff when I should be nursing a bourbon and two sore shoulders from picking away at all this ice that Man Made Global Warming caked 3″ deep in my driveway.
For some, it’s a default thing to do. Your parents were this religion and you never questioned it. Christianity was the default by geography and there was nothing else around. You picked it by going along with whatever your spouse was.
Words I never thought I’d utter: Darrel Waltrip’s speech really got me thinking.
That link is to Waltrip’s speech at the same National Prayer Breakfast where Obama attacked Christians, his own alleged religious affiliation, for The Crusades. In it, Waltrip gives his sincere and moving testimony. If you haven’t seen it in full, it’s a great speech. He talks about “getting off his high horse and getting on his knees”. Later on, Obama talks about how Americans and Christians in particular need to get off their high horse about Islamic Terrorism because of the Crusades or something. And because he just can’t let any perceived slight against Islam go.
Ayatollah Obama’s non-sequitur notwithstanding, I have never heard him give an explanation as to why he converted from Islam to Christianity. He has spoken about his Muslim faith on many occasions. Hearing the calls from the minarets being the most beautiful sound in the world, etc. It’s a big decision that people of faith would not take lightly.
If a Democrat Party operative, pretending to be a reporter, is that interested in plumbing the depths of Obama’s plainly obvious faith – then why not go straight to the source? Personally, I would be intrigued to hear about Obama’s conversion from the Islamo-death cult, getting the knees of his freshly pressed slacks dirty to ask for forgiveness and humbling himself before a Jew even though he was already perfect.
What event could have triggered such a conversion? There have been several, wildly different versions that Obama has offered himself of how he became some type of Christian. But, and it may just be the cynic in me, it appears that he “converted” to Christianity when he moved to Chicago, lost an election to Bobby Rush for not being black enough, ran up a crap ton of campaign debt, and enrolled in Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s hugely influential church solely to get his endorsement and help to get elected.
Wright himself has previously said that he made it easy for Buh-rock to not have to renounce his Islamic faith.
Klein says Obama originally sought out Wright to discuss community activism.
“Quickly the conversations turned from picking up garbage on the street and getting streetlights put up on street corners to political matters and religious matters,” Klein says. “And the Rev. Wright turned into really a substitute father figure, who guided Obama in the two major areas of his life.”
The first area was Obama’s identity — just who was he?
“Obama was steeped in Islam but knew nothing about Christianity,” Klein says.
Klein asked Wright if he converted Obama from being a Muslim into a Christian.
“He said, I don’t know about that. but I can tell you that I made it easy for him to come to an understanding of who Jesus Christ is and not feel that he was turning his back on his Islamic friends and his Islamic traditions and his understanding of Islam,” Klein says.
That is coming from the Reverend who allegedly converted him. Understanding who Christ is or was is not an acceptance of him as your God. Perhaps all of these inquisitive reporters might consult Reverend Wright as to his opinion? They’ve already gone back to Scott Walker’s college teacher from 25 years ago to tell him to “man up” about answering questions on evolution. Obama only left Wright’s church in 2008. If my Common Core calculations are correct, that was only a potato ago.
As a lifelong atheist, it would be tremendously beneficial for my soul and to save me from eternal damnation to hear how Obama was reborn in the blood of Jesus Christ and saw that he was the light and the only true path to Heaven. What Christian leader would disagree with getting that kind of message out there?
For crying out loud Barack, Reverend Wright saved your goddamned soul from worshiping the false god Allah and his child molesting prophet Muhammad. Why won’t you try to save mine? It’s your obligation as a Christian!
Did you ever think you’d see the day that the atheistic Communists who constitute the majority of the Democrat Party would demand that you recognize the inherent decency of having a patriotic Christian President?
It’s only because he’s not one but still – telling.
Perhaps a meeting on “violent extremists” where only Moslems are invited to be stroked and fed dates by the Mooch in her finest shower curtains will rebut the dog whistles you hear when Christians are beheaded en masse and/or insufficiently Islamic Muslims are burnt alive for daring to defend themselves against Those That Shall Not Be Named.
Political correctness demands that we not just tolerate but embrace every cross-dressing, grievance mongering, nutbar idea that comes down the pike. Except for the truth. If that ever got it then it might derail the whole thing. And that’s what has made this weekend so peculiar. This new Evangelical McCarthyism of the Left. Have you now, or have you ever questioned that Barack Hussein Obama might not be more Christian than Christ crucified?
Sure he was raised as a Muslim in Indonesia, blames Christians for the Crusades, hasn’t gone to church in seven years and when he did before it was to the service of a racist bigot who hates this country in order to get votes in Chicago- but to say that he’s not a Christian? It’s so far beyond the pale.
I say judge a man by his actions. How much does he give to charity? Tut-tut – your tax dollars to special interests don’t count. Does he bear false witness about his enemies? Is it possible for him to love his neighbor as much as he loves himself? Is he a man of peace or a divisive bigot who lives to sow animosity between those neighbors and a coveting of their belongings? Whicn 10 Commandment has Obama not broken?
Is he standing between the torches and pitchforks or is he the guy who organized the mob and threw gas on the fires? It’s pretty clear which camp Ayatollah Obama – Arbiter or What Is and What Ain’t officially Islam is.
Before one more goddamn question get’s asked of Scott Walker about Obama’s Christian faith, I want just a couple of questions asked of Obama:
Is Jesus Christ your one and only Lord and Saviour? That all others are false and that there is no way to heaven except through him? That he died and was resurrected from the dead?
If you can’t answer those questions then you are not a Christian. And Obama cannot answer those questions in the affirmative because he is not one.
Required Reading: Kevin Williamson’s piece at NRO and, of course, Mark Steyn’s take on what Obama is doing to the Middle East on purpose.
Ace even has a good post up about the manufactured outrage of the Jonathan Chaits of the world and their phony appeals to a leftwing patriotism that doesn’t, didn’t, and never will exist.
All these people calling shit like it is. I’m kind of glad I got up this morning.
I asked rhetorically (via Gateway Pundit):
“President El Sisi (Egypt) asked for American intelligence targeting intelligence before today’s strikes and didn’t get it. King Abdullah of Jordan asked for Intelligence data on targets to respond to the murder of a Jordanian aircraft pilot. The Kurds are begging for arms and ammo from the United States, not one bullet has been delivered by the United States.”
The only reason why Obama would be ordering no logistical support to Jordan and Egypt is because he is already collaborating with ISIS on Syria. That’s why we keep distinguishing ISIS and ISIL. ISIL is as bad as The Khorasan Group – whoever the fuck they are.
You know! The Khorasan Group. The group of ten foot tall, bullet shitting desert warriors that no one had even heard of until September 2014 when their Wikipedia page was first fabricated.
But ISIS, like the Taliban, are our buddies now and need midnight basketball, a culturally sensitive school lunch program, and continuing adult education programs to steer them away from chopping off the heads of journalists, Christians, or captured foreign aid victims they rape and sell into sexual slavery.
That’s why Obama will not assist our allies in killing any of them. Is there some other way that makes sense?
We owe a great debt to Obama’s many cult-like spokestwats. When Obama demanded that Congress grant him permission to use military force, you know that he will never reveal his true intentions to do ISIS’s dirty work for them in Syria and that he just wants more fingerprints on his clusterfuck. Psaki, Pfeiffer, Earnest, and Harf. The Four Whores of the 0pacalypse. The things that comes out of their mouths, with straight faces no less, defy all common sense and reveal a disciplined groupthink that never even considers how someone could disagree.
To wit, Obama needs a Congressional Authorization to Use Force so he will not use use force because force is not the answer:
“We’re killing a lot of them and we’re going to keep killing more of them. So are the Egyptians, so are the Jordanians. They’re in this fight with us. But we cannot win this war by killing them. We cannot kill our way out of this war. We need in the medium to longer term to go after the root causes that leads people to join these groups, whether it’s lack of opportunity for jobs…
And at the end of the day, ISIS’s root cause for beheadings will be because of climate change and income inequality.
Who in their right mind would send US troops in to support that mission? Besides John McCain and Lispy Graham. They want to host job fairs and pass out midnight basketballs to ISIS.
This is lunacy on stilts in high winds during an earthquake.
It’s cult think. And cult think only comes from the top – from a cult of personality who goes unquestioned and doesn’t brook dissent.
Get Marie Harf in front of Congress immediately to testify about Obama’s new No Killing ISIS / War On Poverty strategy. Let the world appreciate her momentary lapse of candor that what was only meant for the MSLSD leftards.
Granting Obama a blank check to play Middle Eastern community organizer when his strategy is going to be to try bribing the most well funded terrorist group in history with taxpayer funded welfare under the guise of military intervention is going to get a a lot of Christians, US troops, and innocent people in the crossfire killed. In other words, another win, win, win, win for Smart Diplomacy.
When you see 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians beheaded and your State Department’s response is to want to send the headchoppers EBT cards and free community college – the enemy we need to fight first is in the White House.
Asking for a friend.
I’ve heard of 2% milk and skim milk but do they make a .08% milk?
Ummm…yea. That’s what happened at the SNL 40th Anniversary carpal tunnel inducing, three and a half hour long circle jerk last night. Elvis walked right up to Nixon and got his picture taken with a DEA badge:
But hamming it up at a pig party with a degenerate like Al Sharpton? Just because he’s Sizzlean now don’t mean associating with him is not career (or at least what’s passing for her career) suicide.
I’ve heard all the usual excuses: She’s living in their heads rent free, no matter what current idiocy she’s involved in that she comes out smelling like a rose, that she quotes Martin Luther King Jr. and sets herself up as a tar baby to throw themselves against, etc.
Bullshit. She is making it up as she goes along. There is no master plan. There is no platform. And ultimately, there is no future for her as the leader of anything except maybe a website or a loose organization of unherded, pseudo-conservative/libertarian cats. Showing up at that event to begin as NBC had been playing those “I can see Russia from my house” clips all week long is confounding to me. You’re never going to respect someone in the morning who you didn’t respect the night before. That’s not how getting fucked works.
She may, however misguided, think that rubbing elbows with the people who irradiated her politically is some kind of “I’m bigger than whatever you throw at me” gesture but she’s going to have to change her stance on illegal immigration to find enough workers to clean the bed she shit by mugging with Sharpton.
And then later playing folksy (read: drunkenly) with Alec Baldwin. That is some dick on a cheese grater stuff right there.
I say that. True believers are too invested in a Palin electoral success that’s never coming and the MILF mujahideen start sharpening knives and ululating if you disrespect the object of their political beat-off fantasies.
So jerk ‘em if you got ‘em, guys. She ain’t getting any younger.
The NY Post has an outstanding piece by Kyle Smith pissing on the media parade for Jon Stewart’s not-a-moment-too-soon exit from the Daily Show:
Stewart is a journalist: an irresponsible and unprofessional one.
He is especially beloved by others in the journo game. (For every 100 viewers, he generated about 10 fawning profiles in the slicks, all of them saying the same thing: The jester tells the truth!).
Any standard liberal publication was as likely to contain an unflattering thought about Stewart as L’Osservatore Romano is to run a hit piece on the pope.
The hacks have a special love for Stewart because he’s their id. They don’t just think he’s funny, they thrill to his every sarcastic quip. They wish they could get away with being so one-sided, snarky and dismissive.
And that couldn’t be more true. Though, in fairness, CNN and MSNBC have ritually hoisted the pole and populate the three ring Old Media circus with lesser bozos like Don Lemon, Ashleigh Banfield, Piers Morgan, Ronan Farrow to unintended comedic effect.
Back to Stewart, there is no greater dissembling of his clown shoes and red rubber nose than this Bill Whittle take down of his assertion that the atom bomb did not need to be dropped on Japan to end World War II. If you watch anything today let it be that. Whittle should have done the humanitarian thing and dropped leaflets over Comedy Central before laying waste to Stewart’s sanctimonious misinformation in an attempt to cast a U.S. victory in WWII as being based on a war crime. It should be mandatory viewing in any journalism class, US history class, and tattooed on Stewart’s tombstone when he chokes to death on his lack of success in a post-Daily Show world.
Brian Williams has become a joke for telling lies, but Jon Stewart is a liar for the way he told jokes.
The ATF is going to have to investigate Kyle Smith for dropping all that Kaboom without a federal license.
>News breaking overnight of the “thaw” in U.S.-Iranian relations following secret communications between High Cleric Obama and the Ayatollah Khomeini. The Wall Street Journal has the context:
“I will agree with a deal if one is made, but I will not approve a bad deal,” Mr. Khamenei said in the speech. “No deal is better than any deal which contradicts national interests, a deal which humiliates the great Iranian nation.”
It’s a novel concept to be sure. The quaint notion of looking out for the interest of your country first.
But we have the 6MB Exclusive! The actual response from the Ayatollah to Obama’s last secret love letter. In the spirit of the most transparent administration in history, we’ve decided to publish it and let the cards fall where they may.
Hopefully, Edward Snowden has a spare couch where I can crash.
