Kerry ‘Knows’ ObamaDeal Will Make the Middle East a Safer Place

Monday, August 3rd, 2015

Anyone who is sure about anything in the Middle East is talking through his hat, and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry sports the most porous hat in the world.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has reassured the Gulf States he “knows” that the nuclear agreement with Iran will make the world a better place, and the Obama administration is being pressed to “prove” it on the terms of the Sunni oil-rich kingdoms.

They want billions of dollars in weapons, and Qatar dedicated much of Kerry’s visit to insist that the United States force Israel out of half of Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria.

He began his Middle East tour, sans Israel, with talks in Egypt before moving on to Qatar. Despite White House spins to the contrary, the Gulf States are miserably unhappy with the agreement and are keeping their opposition under the surface while exploiting the opportunity to feed the military-industrial complex and shrink Israel.

Kerry said in Egypt:

There can be absolutely no question that if the Vienna plan is fully implemented, it will make Egypt and all the countries of this region safer than they otherwise would be or were.

The United States and Egypt recognize that Iran is engaged in destabilizing activities in the region — and that is why it is so important to ensure that Iran’s nuclear program remains wholly peaceful.

How does the man know that the deal will make the Middle East safer?

Because he says so, and that’s that.

There have been few people who ever have been able to predict what will happen in the Middle East. Condoleezza Rice, who was Secretary of State in the Bush administration, was “sure” that her move to force democratic elections on the Palestinian Authority would result in a resounding victory for Mahmoud Abbas.

She was one of the few who were shocked that Hamas won the elections.

Kerry’s predecessor Hillary Clinton, who might prove that President Barack Obama really is not the worst president possible, cheered Bashar al-Assad as a “reformer” weeks after the Arab Spring protests broke out in Syria.

President Obama was sure that getting rid of Hosni Mubarak, whose autocratic and undemocratic rule kept Egypt stable, would usher in a new wave of democracy.

He was so sure that he endorsed the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist party, which won the elections. One year later, President Obama enthusiastically backed the removal of Muslim Brotherhood president Mohammed Morsi for a more “democratic regime” headed by Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, who is Mubarak Number 3.

And now Mr. Kerry is sure that the ObamaDeal the best thing for the Middle East ever since Islam.

E-Mails Show Clinton without a Clue on How to Relate to Israel

Sunday, August 2nd, 2015

Hillary Clinton’s e-mails expose what President Barack Obama has tried to hide – a  person with absolutely no values or principles except to be politically correct.

The U.S. State Dept. on Friday released more of her hidden e-mails, and they show her as being uncertain and without a clue on relations with Israel.

She desperately sought advice in 2009 when she received advanced notice that the U.N.-sanctioned Goldstone Report thoroughly condemned Israel for alleged war crimes in Operation Cast Lead against Hamas missile attacks on Israel in late 2008 and early 2009. The voluminous report  was based on information that its author Richard  Goldstone later found out to be biased and led him to retract most of his criticism.

His original conclusions were devastating, and Clinton’s e-mails reveal she did not know what to think, according to the correspondence published by Vice News.

Clinton wrote her adviser Jack Sullivan:

What’s the guidance on what I should say? Mitchell just reported to me how strongly the Israelis feel that the POTUS and I speak out forcefully about it now.

And they said if there’s a vote in the UNGA that’s the end of the peace process. What do you know?

Mitchell at my request is calling [then-White House Chief of Staff] Rahm [Emanuel] and [US Ambassador to Israel] Dan Shapiro to report and be sure POTUS knows before he tapes shows today.

Clinton also showed no confidence about how to deal with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on the issue of building for Jews in “settlements” in Judea and Samaria.

Sandy Berger, who was her adviser as well her husband’s when he was president, e-mailed her:

The objective is to try shift [sic] the fulcrum of our current relationships with Bibi from settlements – where he thinks he has the upper hand – to ground where there is greater understanding in Israel of the American position and where we can make him uneasy about incurring our displeasure

Two weeks after e-mailing Sullivan on the Goldstone Report, Clinton e-mailed Berger, apparently referring to Netanyahu’s’ agreement to freeze construction:

Let me know how you think today played.

She did not ask for information. She did not ask for the meaning of the Goldstone Report or the freeze.  All she was worried about was how to react and how to play the game.

President Barack Obama does the same, but Clinton has been caught.

Clinton is campaigning as the greatest friend of Israel since God, Whom she has not yet e-mailed for advice.


ISIS Islamic Law on Libya that Obama Invaded to Save It from Radicals

Thursday, July 16th, 2015

The Islamic State (ISIS) is deepening its stake in Sirte, Libya and has posted billboards that warn women to wear the burka and get rid of sins, such as perfumed clothes and garments that bear brand names.

Violation of the ISIS orders could result in barbaric punishment.

The ISIS explains that Sharia law helps women so that do not descend into the pit of vulgarity by attracting lurid eyes of the opposite sex.

Some shopkeepers in ISIS-held cities have been ordered to put veils on their mannequins.

The billboards, in Arabic, warn women against see-through and loose-fitting clothes, and to cover all body parts. They may not wear clothes with name brands or clothes worn by men or non-believers in Islam. Designs on clothes also are forbidden lest they attract attention. Ditto for perfumed clothes.

This is the same Sirte that is the hometown of Muammar Qaddafi, who was in the cross hairs by President Barack Obama when he invaded Libya in 2011. He got rid of Qaddafi, and now what is left of Libya is trying to get rid of the Islamic State. Seven more civilians and soldiers were killed in Benghazi on Tuesday.

Remember Benghazi? Hillary Clinton wishes you don’t remember. That is where terrorists murdered U.S.  Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans in an attack. Clinton has hidden her Benghazi-related e-mails under her private account.

Benghazi now is a theatre of street warfare between the army and the ISIS.

President Barack Obama also might want to forget about Libya. After criticizing  previous American invasions, here is what he said in 2011 when he ordered the invasion into Libya:

In just one month, the United States has worked with our international partners to mobilize a broad coalition, secure an international mandate to protect civilians, stop an advancing army, prevent a massacre, and establish a no-fly zone with our allies and partners.

To lend some perspective on how rapidly this military and diplomatic response came together, when people were being brutalized in Bosnia in the 1990s, it took the international community more than a year to intervene with air power to protect civilians.  It took us 31 days.

It took the United States only 31 days to “protect” civilians and clear the way for anarchy, followed by the Islamic State (ISIS), a carbon copy of the ouster of Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak. His exit was encouraged by President Obama and followed by anarchy and the brutal rule of the Muslim Brotherhood, now replaced by the equally brutal Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi regime.

ISIS no longer is a local terrorist group redistricted to Iraq and Syria. Besides its affiliate in the Sinai, it has established a strong army in Libya.

One Benghazi-based activist, speaking on condition of anonymity, told IBTimes that many jihadi groups “have given allegiance to the Islamic State because there is virtually no Ansar Al-Sharia now; they have all converted to become Islamic State.

“Islamic State has franchised its ideology and fighters began joining it here at the beginning of this year. As the period of this conflict has worn on, more foreign fighters have come to Benghazi.”

Bush Labels Obama ‘Desperate'; Trump: Our Country’s Going to Hell

Wednesday, July 15th, 2015

Donald Trump, who remains at the top of the overstuffed heap of Republican presidential candidates, dumped all over President Barack Obama for the new agreement with Iran and said, “This country’s going to hell.”

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio were not much less harsh, with Bush comparing President Obama with Chamberlain’s appeasement to Hitler, while Rubio said the deal undermines America’s security.

The “ObamaDeal,” just like ObamaCare, is going to get a spanking in Congress but the President is counting on Democratic Senators to prevent a two-thirds veto-proof opposition to ObamaDeal.

Trump said what everyone in the Middle East knows. “The Persians are always great negotiators” and that’s why “they are laughing at us back in Iran,” he told CNN.

He noted that Iran is holding four Americans on charges of espionage and added:

Why couldn’t they make that part of the deal? It would have happened quickly — easily if you had the right messenger. And that should have actually happened earlier. That should have happened at the beginning of the negotiations….

I’ll be honest with you. I want to save the country. Our country’s going to hell. We have a problem. I want to make America great again.

Trump told NBC that President Obama “dealt from desperation,” and remarked, “You know the Iranians are going to cheat. They’re great negotiators and you know they’re going to cheat.

Bush compared President Obama with Chamberlain and said in a prepared statement:

This isn’t diplomacy – it is appeasement. The people of Iran, the region, Israel, America, and the world deserve better than a deal that consolidates the grip on power of the violent revolutionary clerics who rule Tehran with an iron fist.

Sen. Rubio stated, “Based on what we know thus far, I believe that this deal undermines our national security. President Obama has consistently negotiated from a position of weakness, giving concession after concession to a regime that has American blood on its hands, holds Americans hostage, and has consistently violated every agreement it ever signed.

He told Fox News:

For him [Obama], this whole deal, you know what it is? It is an exhibit in his presidential library.

On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton called the ObamaDeal “an important step which puts a lid on Iran’s nuclear programs.” Vermont Sen. and underdog Bernie Sanders was more extreme and congratulated President Obama and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry for a “victory for diplomacy over saber-rattling [that] could keep the United States from being drawn into another never-ending war in the Middle East.”

Others argue just the opposite, that ObamaDeal makes war inevitable.

Rubio was quoted in The Washington Times as saying:

Look at the press coverage of this issue: Some of it’s been glowing as some sort of historic deal — it’s ridiculous.  A third-rate autocracy has now been given equality with a world power, with the United States of America.

They are now a nuclear threshold country on a deal signed with the United States and other global powers. That’s why they’re cheering in the streets [of] Tehran; that’s why they’re celebrating. You don’t see any celebrations in America. You don’t see any celebrations in Jerusalem or Tel Aviv, because they know this is a one-sided deal.

Trump-Mania Puts ‘The Donald’ in Dead Heat with Jeb Bush

Sunday, July 12th, 2015



Everyone is saying that Donald Trump’s popularity is just a passing fad, but they can’t figure out when, if  ever.

The maverick and shoot-from-the-hip billionaire real estate mogul, reality show celebrity and bigot shares the top spot among Republican voters, according to a Reuters-Ipsos poll published on Saturday.

Last week, a CNN poll announced he was sharing the top spot, and the poll by Reuters makes Trump even more of a serious contender and a critical threat to the Republican party, which would prefer to see him on a life-long mission as an astronaut in outer space, which is where he is considered to be living politically.

But he has lots of company.

The new poll gave him 16.1 percent support among Republican voters, a 0.3 lead over former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. In distant third place is New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. followed by Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson.

However, Trump still does not stand a chance because when the same poll gave voters only three choices – Trump, Bush and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio – Bush smeared Trump  42-28.4 percent.

On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton remains far ahead of Vermont Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders with more than 2-1 lead.




Twitter Poll: Voters Prefer an Avocado over Trump in the White House

Tuesday, July 7th, 2015

Would you prefer that an avocado sit n the White House instead of Donald Trump?

If so, you are not alone.

“A Twitter account called AvocadoFact tweeted what seemed like a fun and harmless message on July 1,” the Mashable.com digital media website reported.

Readers were asked:

Who would you rather have in office? rt for an avocado. fav for donald trump?

As of Sunday, the avocado beat Trump by a margin in 10-1, with 61,367 rewets for the fruit and 5,987 for Trump.

Trump has won big headlines and lost even bigger support with his degrading comments about Mexicans, prompting several large companies to break business deals with him.

He made matters even worse on Monday be going on an another rant against Mexicans, alleging they are responsible for “tremendous infectious disease … pouring across the border.”

In a poor attempt at a “some of my best friends are Mexicans” spin, Trump added, “I am proud to say that I know many hard-working Mexicans – many of them are working for and with me.”

Some of the replies to the poll were even more amusing than the question.

Here are some of the best:

I would equate Obama and potatoes, for foreign policy and for all his job as president

You’re retarded if you think Trump could be taken seriously.

I bet he has cleaning staff in his properties that are illegal immigrants.

While everyone who knows better laughs and makes jokes about these crazy, racist idiots – real people with real fears are willing to vote for them.

Lowly? Avocados are a gift of heaven. Comparing them to this bozo is just an insult.

Now, how about Twitter poll asking people to choose between Hillary Clinton and a baked potato?

And let’s give voters a chance to decide whether they would prefer or a lemon to sit in the Oval Office.

Hillary Clinton Says She Will Be Better Friend than Obama to Israel

Saturday, July 4th, 2015

Hillary Clinton has promised that Israel will have her as a better friend than President Barack Obama if she is elected President next year.

She also exclaimed that Iran poses an “existential threat” to Israel, as if any serious presidential contender thinks otherwise.

While strongly supporting attempts for a “good” deal with Iran, she is trying to reassure wealthy Jews that they can safely contribute to her campaign coffers and can sleep safely last night knowing that she will be good for Israel, even if Israelis spend the night running to bomb shelters.

That is what President Obama also said in 2008. That is what every presidential candidate says, but American Jews lover to hear because they want to believe it.

When it comes to the deal being negotiated between the P5+1 and Iran, Clinton is playing both sides of the fence, and it is not clear where she stands. Politico interviewed 10 donors and fundraisers and reported:

Donors who see a deal as important to world peace have come away thinking that Clinton shares their perspective, but so, too, do donors who oppose any prospective agreement as compromising Israeli security.

Clinton is no different from Obama and every other politician. “No deal is better than a bad deal,” she said, but what is a bad deal? Is it possible to make any deal with Iran can call it “good?”

Since no one yet knows if a deal with Iran will be reached and if so, what it will contain, Clinton can safely hedge her bets.

At stake is $2 billion that Clinton’s aides hope to raise for her campaign and super PACs.

in the meantime, she is boasting that her personality and experience as Secretary of State are guarantees for Americans Jews that she will be a lot friendlier than Obama when it comes to relations with Israel.

She started name-dropping, referring to former Israeli Ambassador to the United States Michael Oren as “Michael” whom she said she knows well.

The penchant for American Jews to buy assurances that the American-Israeli relation will be just fine and dandy was summed up by Politico’s report on a fundraiser last month at the home of Democratic party donor Jay Jacobs. An Orthodox rabbi asked Clinton about threats to Israel, and Jacobs told Politico:

She did stress in no uncertain terms her full and fervent support of the state of Israel and the defense of the state of Israel. And the people in the audience who heard it seemed to be comfortable with her answer.

Good grief!

What did the rabbi think she would say? Did he really believe that Clinton would say, “Well, you know all the talk about threats to Israel is just talk to get more money from the military-industrial complex. Israel can fend for itself. Let’s talk about the economy and immigration.”

Of course she fervently supports Israel. That is what J Street also says.

At least she was honest when she stated, “I’m going to do what’s in the best interest of the U.S.”

That is what any president of the United States should do. He or she should be “pro-American” and not “pro-Israel.”

The kicker is that being pro-Israel usually is the best thing for the United States, even if presidents can’t admit it.
