U.S. President Barack Obama at White House press briefing.

This opinion piece first appeared in the American Thinker.

As the country’s electorate focuses on the Roseburg shootings, three very important items leaked onto the news wires on Thursday that deserve broad, nationwide attention.


Sadly, I am not referring to the drip, drip, drip of Hillary’s emails, the deaths of our service members in a plane crash in Afghanistan, or the attack by a Palestinian terrorist who murdered the parents of four young children.

I awoke to a breaking story in Politico with the headline “Exclusive: Obama brushed off Reid’s plea on Palestinian State.” From that story we learn:

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid on two different occasions this year went to White House chief of staff Denis McDonough seeking a public commitment from President Barack Obama that he would veto any U.N. resolution calling for an independent Palestinian state.

Both times, Obama did nothing.

While this would be unprecedented, so would abstaining from, rather than vetoing, a U.N. resolution condemning the United States for its embargo on Cuba. But that is exactly what the administration is threatening to do. This is arguably treasonous, given that Obama swore to uphold the Constitution and enforce the laws of the country, but given the fact that he has not been impeached for all of his other unconstitutional offenses to date, what does he have to lose by screwing over our most important ally in the Mideast?

Shortly after reading the Politico article, I turned my attention to watching Bibi Netanyahu’s much awaited speech before the U.N. General Assembly. Noticeably absent was the United States’ U.N. ambassador, Samantha Power, and Secretary of State John Kerry, both of whom were in New York City for the UNGA events this week. Later in the day Breitbart broke the story with the headline “Obama Pulled John Kerry and Samantha Power from Netanyahu UN Speech.”

“Ambassador Power and Secretary Kerry were unable to attend Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech before the General Assembly because they were called into a meeting with President Obama, which they participated in via video teleconference,” a State Department Official told Breitbart News.

Is it possible for our president to get even smaller with his vindictive, childish, and unpresidential treatment of Israel’s prime minister? Presumably he decided that pulling our ambassador and SOS would destroy any credibility that Bibi had and detract from his compelling message. And sadly, this is not the first time that Obama has spit in Netanyahu’s face; unquestionably, it will not be the last. But watching Bibi’s speech, it was clear that the only grown-up in the room, the only hero in these first decades of the 21st century, the only world leader history will look back upon without shame and condemnation is Israel’s prime minister.

Finally, despite thinking that things could not get worse, someone sent me an article with the following headline: “Argentine President: Obama Administration Tried To Convince Us to Give Iran Nuclear Fuel.”

Kirchner said that two years into Obama’s first term, his administration sent Gary Samore, former White House Coordinator for Arms Control and Weapons of Mass Destruction, to Argentina to persuade the nation to provide Iran with nuclear fuel, which is a key component of nuclear weapons.

There is no doubt that the White House will deny this accusation. In fact, Kirchner stated that when she asked Samore to put his request in writing, “he disappeared” – so there is no smoking gun. But given what we have learned about Obama’s outreach to the Iranians from his first moments in office in 2009 and his capitulations throughout the Iran deal negotiations, this story is more than plausible, although lord knows what he was thinking.

  1. Liberal brothers and sisters? But thats exactly who helped cause this chaos by appointing a hateful antisemitic mslm to sit in the presidential chair – twice – a weak clueless imposter who was bought and sold by the highest bidders, who created havoc in the middle east and now in Europe…, thats why Trump MUST be the next President… the only one with the brass balls needed to put an end to this nonsense and restore America to its former glory

  2. Israel will be OK compared to the rest of the world, the hand of the LORD is upon Israel; it is us that will suffer dearly, we the people have allowed this to happen, it’s not late but, why try to change what God has decided, through a lot of prayer and fasting it may delay it some more time, but why? Lets support Israel all we can, in every way; and MARANATHA!!

  3. This guy Obama is evil in so many ways. He has hated Israel from the beginning of his administration. For that matter, with help of others, is bent on destroying the homeland. The man is evil. The ONLY common sense leader in the world today is Benjamin Netanyahu.

  4. I have been telling the Jewish people for a long time that this idiot would throw them under the bus, and now he is doing just that along with the blacks that have support him in favor of the camel jockeys and ragheads. I cannot belive that the Jewish people in America are so blind that they would keep supporting Obammer, but I recall that they were blind once before to a guy named Hiltler until it was too late to scream wolf. They had better wake up this time along with the rest of America and the free world to what this infidel is doing with his raghead friends and camel jockeys murderers.

  5. Deuteronomy # 20:1-4. 1.When you take the field against your enemies, and see horses and chariots—forces larger than yours—- have no fear of them, for the lord your God, who brought you from the land of Egypt, is with you. 2. Before you join battle, the priest shall come forward and address the troops. 3. He shall say to them “Here, O Israel! You are about to join battle with your enemies. Let not courage falter. Do not be in fear, or in panic, or in dread of them. 4. For it is the Lord your God who marches with you to do battle for you against your enemies, to bring you victory.

  6. This is EXACTLY what he’s trying to do!
    But he forgets this:

    “הנה לא ינום ולא יישן שומר ישראל
    Behold! The Guardian of Israel!
    He never slumbers and He never sleeps!”

    It may look ominous,
    It may sound terrible,
    But never, ever forget,
    Hashem Elokainu has chosen us
    for a reason.
    And He’s given The Land of Israel
    to US, the Jewish People.

  7. Send me your email in response. I think I have both parts. I’m worried about Russia but I will trust Putin this time. I don’t trust Obama at all. This didn’t have to happen. The Kurds already control the entire north east region. The rebels have an understanding with Israel — no attacks and Israel treats the wounded for many of the groups. I know it’s strange, but it has worked so far!

  8. Brigitte de Kroon It is great advice for everyone who loves God and Israel, Do yuo want your children to ever worry? No of course not, so stop worrying about what we have to do about this or that to fix it and instead just pray and wait to see the amazing things an Amazing God does.

  9. Sadly the voters in this country have the right and responsbility to choose who leads them. They have chosen President Obama twice. The last election they knew how he lead for 4 years millions voted for him and millions voted against him. However, there was a group of voters who didn’t go to the polls even though they did not support what he had done. They by not voted choose him to continue to lead this country, appoint judges who don’t follow our constitution, rule by executive order, ignore the constituiton, show contempt by his action for Israel and continue his anit-colonialism. We as a nation are suffering as in many in the world because of Americans who fail to vote. Sorry Israel God is on your side always.

  10. ……what a devilish toughts again, from husseini obamam,…”..perfect desert storm..”?….
    l tought he knew about us and about the Bible…l might has to dissapoint my self…
    …” …….to destroy lsrael..”?…l quess, he never ever put a second .interrest in the Jewish history, although he contra vida, since he’s in office, to the Jewish nation, that this Jewish nation, always has survived, any ” .DESERT STORM..” NATION ”….for more than 1500yrs…
    A big deal of the US live, is in hand of the Jews..
    is he that dumb, not to understand that?..and simply to admit it..?…

  11. Can we say Islam, through and through, Muslim, too.I think he has some deep set hatred for America and Israel yet, everyone puts a spin on trying to tip toe around it. We first have to acknowledge who we have in the White House, then we can decide where we are going.

  12. I believe in Post-Tribulation Rapture. The Messiah will come, (or Return, depending on your religion). Read about what ISIS is doing to Christians in their own churches, that is what the Seven-year tribulation will be like, but thousands of times worse, and much more messier.

  13. obama the satanist, Israel will never get destroyed God is protecting his chosen people, It is biblical in Ezekiel 38-39 chapters, the lord tells you that all the nations that invade Israel soon will be destroyed. Russia and his allies do not have long to exist. obama who loves gays will face Gods wrath, which already they are having bad storms soon a bad earth quake that will destroy america for turning their back on Israel.

  14. @Frederick D. Fish- Don’t forget that Man, number 666 aka the POPE, he will handle the messier part of the killings, together with the Image of the Beast, the USA, millions of people will die under their created ‘One World Government’.

  15. I personally have less than no use for a man who comes to this country to embarrass our President, who's been a better friend to Israel than just about any other U.S. president in my lifetime, which goes back to Israel's Independence Day and a bit before. Yes, I'm speaking of Bibi, the Man Who Cried Ze'ev.

  16. Praise God Pres. Obama only has 1 yr. left as President. Stay close to God and place your trust in Almighty God only. When you trust in your own might you become anxious. Simply ask God for His counsel and fill you with His Wisdom, Intelligence, and unshakable confidence in Him. Ask God to Bless you, lead you, guide you, and protect and watch the most Holy of Holy’s battle for you and with you. Don’t be fearful of Iran, Muslims or Russia. Stay rock steady in your Faith, love, hope, and confidence in God. I will also pray for you.

  17. Look, I am not a fan of what’s going on in all of the Middle East & I am 100% behind the United States pulling every single American out of every single Arab muslim country. I am also behind a moment that would open a large U.S. Navel base in Israel thereby making it 100% clear to anyone on the planet that an attack on Israel is also an attack on America ….Having said the above, yes Obama has shall we say been harsh verbally to Israel BUT has maintained the arms they need to protect themselves..

  18. Itz just not the end their are many more verse written in Quran chapter 2:62 Al-Baqara… Just google it

    إِنَّ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَالَّذِينَ هَادُوا وَالنَّصَارَىٰ وَالصَّابِئِينَ مَنْ آمَنَ بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الْآخِرِ وَعَمِلَ صَالِحًا فَلَهُمْ أَجْرُهُمْ عِنْدَ رَبِّهِمْ وَلَا خَوْفٌ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلَا هُمْ يَحْزَنُونَ

    Verily! Those who believe and those who are Jews and Christians, and Sabians, whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day and do righteous good deeds shall have their reward with their Lord, on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.

  19. Facts are facts….. Obama is a traitor to America and those that don't see this are decieved. Obama has put America and Israel in a perilous position …Obama has no love for this country or Israel. Israel is fortunate to have Bibi for such a time as this……..his love for Israel's safety take priority. His speech at the U.N. was powerful…………there are many of us who love Israel and are praying….G_D has not abandoned Israel and He does remember His promises……the Word of G_D is true……..G_D will win in the end and the haters of Israel will be destroyed permanently………….His love for His people is everlasting and eternal. Our synagogue is praying for Israel and its people………stay strong!

  20. It's even worse than we thought, with Obama's hatred for Israel.
    When (if ever) will the mindless sheep known as American Jews, many of whom incomprehensibly STILL support him, wake up?

    The Democrat party should pay a big price at the polls and in campaign contributions, for Obama's hateful attacks on Bibi in specific and Israel in general.

  21. The president has two girls will they ever be proud of their father .when he looks back wil there be a smile on his face .but the people who elected him are the biggest fools .whatever and who ever does anything to Israel will not be effective for the Mighty God is ever watching and in his own time will pulp the

  22. I’ve been lamenting Hussein Obama’s various dispositions in foreign politics calling him an amateur and a fool. But if the goal of the President is to make America weak and promote notable adversaries in areas where the US has been dominant then the POTUS has maneuvered sleek and well.
    But this said, there’s now evidence of subversive activities conspired in the White House. It’s first time in history that the president can be impeached for high treason.

  23. Please note that the State of Israel is opposing the offensive of Sunni "militants" in the Middle East. The successful building of the “New Caliphate” in Iraq, Syria and Libya will NOT be repeated in Israel.
    Is this resistance of Israel making President Obama nervous?

  24. It is known that every leader of a country – and much more that the U.S. President – leaves his mark on his SPECIFIC period of tenure in office.
    What characterizes President Obama’s term is a great “effervescence” of the Islamic EXTREMIST movement that began under the beautiful name of <Arab Spring>…!
    Does anyone wish TO VENTURE to explain this Truth, which cannot be challenged?

  25. Israel will survive. Netanyahu will survive. Obama will be gone in a year and acouple of months and will be just a postscript. I have confidence in Israel that it can and will look after itself. With Obama, Susan Ricem Samantha Power, John Kerry and Valerie Jarrett will be gone, gone, gone. Let us pray that we will elect the right person for president like Ted Cruz or Marco Rubio. And, let's hope and pray those Jewish traitors who supported and contributed to and voted for Obama will finally come to their senses and vote for a good Republican. I am furious with those Jews, and there were many, including those in my family, that supported and voted for Obama the first time. They would not tell me what they did the second time but I would not put it past them.

  26. Joseph Rosen Obama's effervescence is like a fart in a windstorm. He will soon be forgotten and the job of reconstruction will fall on the shoulders of the new Republican president. And, if he is anything like Reagan was, he will do it, with the support of the American patriots.

  27. Maya Wiertel
    ‘Europe Union’ during the Roman Empire could not resist the barbarian invasion in the 5th century.
    The question of the day:
    Is it possible that the present Europe Union – this time under the leadership of Germany – will survive the NEW large-scale invasion?
