Obama’s Middle East Policy: Susan Rice Mocks Israeli Ambassador

HOW’S Obama’s foreing policy on the Middle East going?

The Free Beacon:

Obama administration National Security Adviser Susan Rice rudely mocked Israel’s ambassador during a recent meeting with an American Jewish leader.

Rice, who is known to dislike the Israeli government, was asked in a recent meeting with a top American Jewish leader why she had not taken meetings with Israeli Ambassador Ron Dermer. “Rice responded, with her characteristic sarcasm, ‘He never asked to meet me,’” Haaretz reported Rice as saying. The president’s top aide then mocked Dermer and conservative casino magnate Sheldon Adelson.

“Besides, I understood that he’s too busy traveling to Sheldon Adelson’s events in Las Vegas,” Rice reportedly said with contempt.

Always good to keep your allies on side…

Israel: Appeasing Obama Hasn’t Worked

APPEASING OBAMA has hurt Israel. Well, appeasement never works:

First, the unbridled attacks against Israel’s democratically elected – and popular – prime minister show us that when we are faced with an inherently hostile administration, the wages of appeasement are contempt.

No Israel leader has done more to appease a US administration than Netanyahu has done to appease Obama. Against the opposition of his party and the general public, Netanyahu in 2009 bowed to Obama’s demand to embrace the goal of establishing a Palestinian state.

Against the opposition of his party and the general public, in 2010 Netanyahu bowed to Obama’s demand and enacted an official 10-month moratorium on Jewish property rights in lands beyond the 1949 armistice lines, and later enacted an unofficial moratorium on those rights.

And Netanyahu bowed to Obama’s pressure, released murderers from prison and conducted negotiations with Abbas that only empowered Abbas and his political war to delegitimize and isolate Israel.

And for all his efforts to appease Obama, today the administration abets Palestinian terrorism and political warfare.

Popcorn The Turkey Forgets The Little People

AND lo did President Barack Obama, with daughters Sasha and Malia, continue the Thanksgiving tradition of saving Popcorn the turkey from the dinner table with a “presidential pardon,” at the White House in Washington, Wednesday, Nov. 27, 2013, as John Burkel, current chairman of the National Turkey Federation in Badger, Minn, observed.

After the pardoning, Popcorn travelled to George Washington’s Mount Vernon Estate and Gardens where he will be on display for visitors during “Christmas at Mount Vernon.”

Then millions of Americans will eat millions of Popcorn’s family. Turkeys will never forget the treachery, talking about how after Popcorn’s election to the role of Washington Ambassador he gave them up for all the grain he could eat and a chance to meet Obama.

King Barack Obama would stomp on the 6th amendment


IS Barack Obama a dictator? No, of course he isn’t. But would he like to be one? As he said:

“I’m the president of the United States, I’m not the emperor of the United States.”

When Beckham’s LA Galaxy met Barack Obama few dared move – video

WHEN David Beckham, Robbie Keane and the rest of the LA Galaxy Football team met Barack Obama, the mood was breezy. Aside form BEcks, Robbie and captain Landon Donovan, the rest of the chaps are legends in their own lounges. So. What can they do to rise their profiles. Will one of them tweet live from the scene a la Joey Baton? Will one of them do a Mario Balotelli and let his enthusiasm run away and grap Obama in a hug? Or will they just stand still, like cardboard cut-outs advertising teeth and hair gel?

Fairey story: Obama’s HOPE artist faces prison

SHEPARD Fairey was once one of the world’s most famous artists. His Barack Obama “HOPE” poster was all over the world. Now he faces prison:

The street artist Shepard Fairey, whose “Hope” campaign poster of Barack Obama became an enduring symbol of his last presidential campaign, pleaded guilty Friday to a charge stemming from his misconduct in trying to bolster claims in a lawsuit over which photograph had been used as a basis for the poster.

Mr. Fairey, 42, sued The Associated Press in 2009 after it contended he had infringed on the copyright of one of its photographs in creating the poster.

Now you mention it, there is a vague similarity

Mr. Fairey had claimed in his suit that he had used a different photograph of Mr. Obama, but later admitted that he had been mistaken and had tried to conceal his mistake, by destroying documents and fabricating others.

“I was ashamed that I had done these things, and I knew I should have corrected my actions,” he said on Friday in Federal District Court in Manhattan.

Osama Is Obama: A Potted History Of Media Whoops

BARACK Hussein Obama has name that sounds a bit like Osama bin Laden. It’s also a bit like Saddam Hussein. George Bush has name that sounds a lot like George II, the foreign King who fought the American dream. JFK is but one letter away from JFS (Jane’s Fighting Ships). Maggie Thatcher is easily confused with Teri Hatcher (both Christian!)? I think we can all take something from that. Here’s a pictorial history of the Osama is Obama polemic. One of them is dead. Can the media tell which one it is..?
