These problems are of Obama’s doing his his incoherent foreign policy and a refusal to enforce existing US immigration laws.

Missing and Kidnapped Jewish Teens Eyal Yifrah, Gilad Shaar & Naftali Fraenkel (Dual Israeli-American Citizenship) Found Deceased in West Bank … Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Vows, “Hamas Will Pay”
The search for three missing teens in Israel has come to a sad, savage and bloody end …
19 year old Eyal Yifrah, 16 year old Gilad Shaar and 16 year old Naftali Fraenkel, who had dual Israeli-American citizenship, have been missing since June 12, 2014 have been found murdered in the West Bank north of Hebron. The three went missing while hitching home from a West Bank religious school. Israeli officials said at the time that one of the teens called a police emergency line said: “We’ve been kidnapped.” They were not heard from again.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowing “Hamas will pay.”
The Israeli air force conducted strikes early Tuesday morning against 34 targets in the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip in response to rocket attacks against Israel’s southern communities. It was not immediately clear if the airstrikes, which targeted Hamas and Islamic Jihad assets in the strip and came after more than 20 rockets were fired into southern Israel over the past two days, resulted in any casualties, the Jerusalem Post reported.
Also on Tuesday, a Palestinian who Israel said was a member of Hamas was shot dead when he threw a grenade at forces carrying out an arrest raid in the West Bank. The man was the first casualty since the bodies were found.
UPDATE I: The Times of Israel: What happened on the night of the kidnapping.
The three teens were waiting at Geva’ot Intersection, west of the settlement of Alon Shvut in the Etzion Bloc south of Jerusalem, soon after 10:15 p.m, looking to catch a ride heading west on Route 367 toward Beit Shemesh and from there to locations in central Israel where each of them lived.
Inside the Hyundai, Israel alleges, were Hamas terrorists Amer Abu Aysha and Marwan Kawasme.
Recognizing, too late, that the car was not an innocent Israeli vehicle, one of the teens called the police at 10:25 p.m. and whispered, “We’ve been kidnapped.” The call was transferred immediately to a senior officer, who continued to ask questions but received no reply. The call lasted for 2:09 minutes and was then cut off. The officer called the number eight more times, but received three busy signals and reached voicemail five times.
The kidnappers, apparently realizing that a call had been made, shot the three teens dead soon afterwards in the backseat of the car, military sources said.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday night that they were murdered “in cold blood.”
UPDATE II: Israel Launches Airstrikes in Gaza Strip.
Israel said it launched a series of airstrikes against targets in the Gaza Strip early Tuesday. The military said the strikes hit 34 targets and injured four Palestinians across the Hamas-controlled territory.
It also said approximately six rockets hit Israel, including two that struck an area north of the city of Sderot. No damage or injuries have yet been reported.
Israel bombed dozens of sites in the Gaza Strip on Tuesday, striking at Hamas after finding the bodies of three missing teenagers whose abduction and killing it blames on the Palestinian Islamist group.
Israel’s security cabinet, which held an emergency session late on Monday and was due to meet again on Tuesday, was split on the scope of any further action in the coastal enclave or in the occupied West Bank, officials said. The United States and regional power-broker Egypt urged restraint.
The military said aircraft attacked 34 sites, mostly belonging to Hamas, though its statement did not link the strikes to the abductions. Palestinian medics said two people were slightly wounded.
The military cited 18 Palestinian rockets launched against Israel from Gaza in the past two days.
The Islamist group has neither confirmed nor denied involvement in the disappearance of the students as they hitchhiked near a Jewish settlement on June 12 nor in the cross-border rocket salvoes from Gaza.
Thanks Barack, as Americans are squeezed at the pump this 4th of July.
The current national average price of gas is 23 cents per gallon more expensive than it was on the Fourth of July last year, the highest since 2008. Can no one see the parallel and irony that on this 4th of July gas prices will be at a six year high due dependence on foreign oil and the turmoil and unrest in the Middle East and American Independence Day? When will the United States begin an energy policy in this country of “energy” independence, instead of a war on oil, coal and any other form of energy that the Obama administration does not deem “green”?
Gas prices are expected to be at the highest level in six years for the Fourth of July holiday. Yes, the gas prices are set to raise on national independence day.
Regular gasoline peaked at a national average of $3.98 a gallon in early May. The current national average price of gas is 23 cents per gallon more expensive than it was on the Fourth of July last year. The highest was seen in 2008. The highest record was $4.11 a gallon in 2008.
“We’re going to see the highest July 4th prices since 2008, and we probably wouldn’t have, if it weren’t for Iraq,” said Tom Kloza, chief oil analyst at GasBuddy.com. “I certainly would not rule out if something happens near Basra or south of Baghdad, we would see national prices make a pass at $4…but I just don’t see a fuel apocalypse in North America this year.”
“Although gas prices in the Southeast remained relatively stable from last week, it wouldn’t be surprising to see gas prices inch up slightly before the holiday weekend,” said Jessica Brady, AAA spokeswoman with The Auto Club Group. “Even though pump prices are higher than they were this time last year, they are not expected to deter holiday travelers.”
Gas prices used to depreciate in the upcoming weeks of the holiday in previous years, but that’s not the case this summer.
AAA Travel reports the statewide average price of gas is $3.71 for a gallon of regular unleaded. It was $3.48 last year on the Fourth.
Barack Obama Goes Golfing & Fund Raising as Iraq Implodes & All the Sacrifices of Americans Soldiers are Lost to ISIS Terrorists Thanks to Obama
Barack Obama, a complete and epic failure as Commander in Chief … Obama just doesn’t care about America, the military or Americans!
It was said from the outset by many intelligent and common sense thinking people that a premature exit from Iraq by the US military would result in the fall of the Iraq government to insurgents. However, Barack Obama was never one of those intelligent people either as a US Senator or as a president. In order to keep his campaign promise to end the war in Iraq, he sacrificed any victory and all of the sacrifices and lives of those brave American soldiers who fought, died and were injured. Now Iraq is in dire straights as Islamic jihadists take over the country.
In January 2007 then Senator Barack Obama went on Face the Nation to share his foreign policy brilliance stating, “One of the things that I strongly disagree with Senator McCain is, this notion that we have future catastrophe to look forward to if we start phasing down troops.” Guess who was wrong, Epically Wrong! Has there ever been a worse Commander in Chief, ever? Iraq is in complete chaos. City after city are falling in Iraq as Iraq implodes.
Barack Obama stood by and watched Iraq fall to terrorists. There were multiple requests from Iraq for United States airstrikes against the insurgents in staging areas; however, they were turned down. What is up with our Commander in Chief refusing to help militarily in Iraq? Why is he emboldening terrorists? As Ralph Peters said on Fox News, the Jihadi conquest of Iraq the biggest Islamist victory since 12th century. Welcome to Obama’s Jihadi state.
“Patty Ann, this is President Obama’s real legacy. The creation of the first jihadi state in modern history stretching from central Syria to Central Iraq and now approaching Baghdad all because President Obama saw everything through a political lense. He’s gonna end the War in Iraq. He refused to negotiate seriously for residual US presence.
And now, just to put this in perspective for viewers, with this jihadi conquest of Mosul and jihadi forces approaching Baghdad, this is shaping up to be the biggest Arab jihadi victory since the 12th Century, 1187, and the fall of Crusader Jerusalem. This is momentous.
I can’t overstate the importance of Obama’s jihadi state in the heart of the Middle East.”
So what exactly is Obama trying to accomplish except to try and dispirit America? Barack Obama released 5 Taliban insurgents from GITMO for one military deserter, Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Something that the American people are against, and the number will only continue to grow, the more and more the truth comes out. Obama has all but lost Iraq. All of the gains from brave American military soldiers all seem for naught. Sadly, many veterans feel their accomplishments were a waste. A note to the US military veterans of Iraq, what you did was not a waste, your actions were destroyed by Obama more hellbent on a political ideology than winning a war.
Instead, this joke of a president continues and doubles down on his failed foreign policy.Obama spoke on Friday from the White House with some of the most gutless talk from a US president ever. Instead of taking decisive action to help Iraq, Obama is going to continue to dither. UNREAL.
‘We will not be sending US troops back into combat but I had asked my national security team to prepare a range of other options that could help support Iraq security forces. And I’ll be reviewing those options in the days ahead. I do want to be clear though. This is not solely or even primarily a military challenge.”
Barack Obama stated on Friday, he would be reviewing options from his national security team to prepare a range of other options that could help support Iraq security forces. Hmm, really? Looks like as Iraq falls to ISIS terrorists, Barack Obama is going to go golfing and fundraising. For the love of God, are you serious? After all, aren’t we glad that our US president has his priorities straight?
The president’s handlers scoped out some golf courses and gave a list to Obama just in case he wants to spend Father’s Day on the links.
Obama plans to take a short flight to Orange County Saturday to raise money for the Democratic National Committee at a closed-door event at a private home.
Judge Jeanine Pirro Blasts Barack Obama for the Bowe Bergdahl Fiasco and Demands for Obama’s Impeachment … “Mr. President, You are Destroying This Country”
WOW, JUDGE JEANINE PIRRO SAYS WHAT MANY AMERICANS FEEL, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH … MUST WATCH VIDEO!
Over the weekend in her opening monologue Judge Jeanine Pirro blasted President Barack Obama for the release of the GITMO 5, the five high ranking Taliban terrorists, in exchange for deserter Bowe Bergdahl. But this may have just been the final straw of many scandals and reprehensible acts against the military that question whether Obama is a real Commander in Chief.
Pirro went on to shred Obama in saying the following: “And make like you respect the military. You call yourself a Commander in Chief, but what Commander in Chief does not support a surge but sends in 40,000 troops anyways? What Commander in Chief reduced benefits to those in the military, closed the Veteran War Memorial, reduced the army to pre-WWII levels, knowingly allows veterans to die in our hospitals. While replenishing the enemy in a time of war. Mr. President, you are destroying this country.”
Jeanine Pirro concluded with, “You are not a true Commander in Chief. We impeached a President for lying about sex with an intern. Your actions are far more egregious. demand impeachment.”
Mr. President, you did not just release them [GITMO 5] … you unleashed them!!!
Thanks Barack Obama: Taliban & Taliban’s Supreme Leader Mullah Omar Celebrate Release of Gitmo Detainees for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl
Thanks Barack Obama … Isn’t this special, Taliban’s Supreme Leader Mullah Omar is celebrating the release of the GITMO 5 in exchange for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.
The Taliban’s supreme leader, Mullah Mohammad Omar, hailed the release of the GITMO 5. Why shouldn’t Omar be elated, the 5 terror suspects freed by Obama administration over the weekend were labeled ‘high risk’ in 2008 Pentagon report. Are you serious, Obama exchanged 5 high risk Taliban terrorists for what appears by all accounts to be a deserter? Is it bad enough that the Obama administration just negotiated with terrorists, but compounded matters with selecting a potential deserter as their test case. UNREAL.
“I extend my heartfelt congratulations to the entire Afghan Muslim nation, all the mujahideen and to the families and relatives of the prisoners for this big victory regarding the release of five Taliban leaders from Guantanamo prison,” he said in a statement quoted by the AFP news agency.
It will be one year and one minute before these five Taliban terrorists are back on the terrorist battle field against the United States. Could Obama have done anything better to inspire the Taliban to continue the fight against America.
Barack Obama and his misguided administration just created five Taliban rock stars.
We heartily congratulate the whole nation, Mujahidin of the Islamic Emirate, particularly the kith and kin of the released ones that five heads of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan namely Mulla Muhammad Fazal Akhund, Mulla Noorulla Noori, Mulla Khairulla Khairkhwa, Mulla Abdul Haq Waseeq and Moulavi Muhammad Nabi who had been incarcerated for the last thirteen years in ‘Guantanamo Jail’ are released due to the benevolence of Allah Almighty and the sacrifices of the heroic and courageous Mujahidin of the Islamic Emirate.
These five heads were released in the result of an indirect negotiation between the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan and the United States mediated by Qatari government. They will remain with their families inside Qatar and will lead a normal life.
To get the preceding five heads released, it is worth mentioning that the Islamic Emirate handed over the American soldier to the US who was captive with us approximately for the last five years.
These five heads of the Islamic Emirate were handed over on Saturday at 07:00 pm Afghanistan standard time to the delegation of Qatar who has been waiting there in ‘Guantanamo Bay’ for the previous three days. This delegation, including five heads of the Islamic Emirate, left Guantanamo at 10:00 pm and will arrive in Qatar today Sunday. They will be received and welcomed by the Political Bureau of the Islamic Emirate inside Qatar and members of the leading council of the Islamic Emirate. Similarly, the American prisoner ‘Bergdahl’ was handed over in the suburbs of ‘Khost’ province to the other side on Saturday at 07:00 pm Afghanistan standard time.
The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has been taking all possible measures since long to get all the Afghan prisoners released whether they are incarcerated inside the country or outside and to let them enjoy a free and peaceful life.
In the future too, the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan is determined to get all the Mujahidin prisoners released as soon as possible. In this regard, we expect all the legal and human rights societies particularly the United Nations to share and accelerate their efforts with Afghan people and the Islamic Emirate on the basis of human sympathy so that all the incarcerated people are freed and their basic legal and human rights are safeguarded and they could lead an independent and peaceful life of their own accord.
EXIT QUESTION: How soon will the next kidnapping or abduction take place in the Middle East now that Obama has shown that he is willing to negotiate with terrorists in hostage swaps?
Pregnant Sudanese Christian Woman Meriam Yehya Ibrahim Faces Death Sentence in Sudan for Converting From Islam … She Refused to Recant her Faith Declaring, “I am a Christian, and I will remain a Christian.”
TAKE A LOOK AMERICA AT THE REAL WAR ON WOMEN AND WHO IS DOING IT, HINT … IT IS NOT THE REPUBLICAN PARTY, ITS ISLAM.
27 year old Meriam Yehya Ibrahim, a wife and mother expecting another child, was sentenced to death by a Sudanese court for apostasy. The Court ruled that she is Muslim because her father was Muslim, even though she was raised Christian. The court ruled she left Islam and therefore the pregnant Meriam is subject to receive 100 lashes for adultry and then be hanged. Before imposing this heinous sentence, the court gave her an opportunity to recant her Christian faith, but Elnabi said Ibrahim refused to do so, declaring: “I am a Christian, and I will remain a Christian.”
“We gave you three days to recant but you insist on not returning to Islam. I sentence you to be hanged,” Judge Abbas Mohammed Al-Khalifa told Mrs Ibrahim, addressing her by her father’s name, Adraf Al-Hadi Mohammed Abdullah.
Mrs Ibrahim also faces a sentence of flogging for adultery on the grounds that her marriage to a Christian man from South Sudan is considered void under Islamic law. She will be given 100 lashes. Because her father was Muslim, she was considered by the court to be the same.
Oh wait Sharia law is pro-woman after all … it prohibits the execution of pregnant women. Instead, the sentence is delayed until two years after lactation. UNREAL.
Ibrahim’s lawyer, Mohamed Jar Elnabi, said that he plans to ask an appeals court to review the sentence, and could file the request as soon as Sunday. Elnabi argues that Sudan’s constitution allows religious conversion without restriction.
On Thursday, a Khartoum court convicted Ibrahim of apostasy, or the renunciation of faith, and sentenced her to death.
Ibrahim was born to a Sudanese Muslim father and an Ethiopian Orthodox mother. Her father left when she was 6, and she was raised by her mother as a Christian.
Her lawyer, Mohamed Jar Elnabi, said the case started after Ibrahim’s brother filed a complaint against her.
The brother alleged Ibrahim had gone missing for several years and that her family was shocked to find she had married a Christian man.
Because her father was Muslim, the Sharia law court considered her to be the same. It refused to recognize her marriage to a Christian and also convicted her of adultery, with an additional sentence of 100 lashes.
The death ruling for Ibrahim drew condemnation from Western embassies in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, and international rights groups, including Amnesty International.
When are people going to comprehend that Muslim Sharia Law cares little about woman and Islam has nothing to do with freedom of religion.
“The Embassies of the United States of American, the United Kingdom, Canada and the Netherlands in Khartoum express their deep concern over the apostasy ruling handed down on Sunday in the trial of Meriam Yahia Ibhrahim Ishag,” said a statement posted on the website of the U.S. Embassy in Khartoum.
“We call upon the Government of Sudan to respect the right to freedom of religion, including one’s right to change one’s faith or beliefs, a right which is enshrined in international human rights law as well as in Sudan’s own 2005 Interim Constitution,” the statement added.
Background of this atrocity … Her own brother ratted her out, who filed a complaint against her, alleging that she had gone missing for several years and that her family was shocked to find she had married a Christian man.
Amnesty International said Ibrahim was arrested and charged with adultery in August 2013 after a family member reportedly claimed that she was committing adultery because of her marriage to a Christian South Sudanese man.
Under Sudan’s Islamic Shari’a law, a Muslim woman is not permitted to marry a non-Muslim man, thus any such marriage is considered to be adultery. The court later added the charge of apostasy when Ibrahim asserted that she was a Christian and not a Muslim.

Political Correctness Has Jumped the Shark … Hump Day Camel now Considered Racist & Racially Insensitive
Political Correctness Has Jumped the
Shark Camel … WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED TO THE COUNTRY I GREW UP IN: PC EDITION.
The latest absurd PC reaction comes from the University of St. Thomas in Minnesota and their “HUMP DAY” event. A group of students had planned to bring a camel to the “Hump” day event; however, the event was canceled. Some clueless students thought that bringing a camel would be considered racist and offensive and racially insensitive to Middle Eastern cultures. I think all I have to say to both sides is grow a set. It’s a frigging camel you so-called college educated fools. Hump Day, camel’s hump, get the connection? Maybe the RHA should have brought to the event a Humpback whale, or Quasimodo or Igor from Young Frankenstein? But some how I think the subtlety would be lost on the ignorant or some one would have been offended by individuals with humps.
Enough is enough, I am sick and tired of running everyday life over who might be offended. Newsflash, there will always be some one that will be offended by something. Imagine if we never produced a drug to help people survive with diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, high cholesterol and any other malady because of the side affects harmed just one person? Ever take a look at any drug and the long list of side affects? That is what PC has become in the United States. You know what is offensive, kidnapping girls and forcing Islam upon them and selling them into sex slavery, honor killing and sentencing a pregnant Christian woman to death by hanging for leaving Islam. THAT’S OFFENSIVE!!!
BTW, no one seemed to find the used of a bull or a pie eating contest at the Southern Hospitality event. How offensive, are you saying people from the South are obese and are rednecks who just ride mechanical bulls like in the movie Urban Cowboy? But I guess that is different.
The “Hump Day” event, put on by the Residence Hall Association (RHA), was supposed to be “a petting zoo type of atmosphere” in which students could hang out and take photos with a live camel. According to Aaron Macke, the group’s advisor, the camel is owned by a local vendor and trained for special events.
But the event was subsequently cancelled after students took to Facebook to proclaim their concerns. The students said they were concerned about the money spent on bringing the camel to campus—around $500—and the implication that it would be racially insensitive to Middle Eastern cultures.
The Facebook group called “Protest Hump DAAAAAAY!” had more than 100 RSVP’d attendees before it was deleted on Wednesday.
“RHA’s goal in programming is to bring residents together in a fun and safe environment where all people can enjoy themselves,” RHA president Lindsay Goodwin said in a statement on RHA’s Facebook page. “It appears however, this program is dividing people and would make for an uncomfortable and possibly unsafe environment for everyone attending or providing the program. As a result, RHA has decided to cancel the event.”
GET REAL!!! I guess you are going to tell is that the GEICO “Guess what day it is” Hump day commercial is racist and culturally insensitive as well? Come on folks, is this the kind of people that we are breading in colleges today? No one had a picture of Allah and placed it in urine or spread feces on it. No one burned a Koran. No one had a scene of Allah with a camel in a compromising position. All those would be considered offensive. However, when the same things are done with Jesus Christ or the Virgin Mary, it is called free speech art.
Brit Hume & Former California Democratic Rep. Jane Harman Get into Heated Debate Over Benghazi on FOX News Sunday
Democrats cannot explain away the fabricated and intentionally misleading Benghazi talking points without going into hysterics.
Fox News contributor Brit Hume and former Congresswoman Jane Harman (D – CA) went at it on Fox News Sunday after Harmon delivered an arrogant and dismissive lecture on the Benghazi talking. points. Hume pressed Harman to name a single person in the administration who credibly believed that the Benghazi attack was connected to an anti-Islam video. And predictably, she could not do so. Host Chris Wallace interjected and said, “Ben Rhodes talks about the video five times in this memo, five times.” Harmon would finish by saying, “my view on this, having been around at the time, was that this was not deliberately misleading. It turned out to be wrong, but it was not deliberate.” Wrong, it was deliberate.
“You’re right, there wasn’t a conspiracy in the United States to mount the Benghazi attack,” Hume said. “That’s not the question.”
“The question was whether in the aftermath of the attack, when the administration sent its U.N. ambassador out to explain it to everybody, and she did so falsely, that there wasn’t a conspiracy to create the false talking points that she used,” the Fox News senior political analyst continued. “I’m not talking about the CIA talking points, I’m talking about the talking points used on that program that day, which were monumentally misleading, that since have been shown to be false, and based on no intelligence of any consequence that we know of.”
Harman continued, however, to insist that the administration did not deliberately craft misleading talking points.
“My view on this, having been around at the time, was that this was not deliberately misleading,” the former Democratic congresswoman replied. “It turned out to be wrong, but it was not deliberate.”
Sec. of State Kerry Backpedals on Israel “Apartheid State” Comment and Tries to Blame Partisan Politics … However, There are Calls for Kerry to Resign
Hey John Kerry, why the long face? He has certainly put his foot in his mouth this time …
Secretary of State John Kerry is feeling the backlash from his ignorant comments about Israel could become an “Apartheid state”. Kerry tried to backpedal on the comments regarding one of the United State’s greatest allies; however, Kerry still found time to make excuses and blame partisan politics for his foolish comments saying, “I will not allow my commitment to Israel to be questioned by anyone, particularly for partisan, political purposes. The tape of Kerry’s comments was published by the Daily Beast on Sunday, a recording of Kerry’s comments to a meeting of the Trilateral Commission on Friday in which he lamented the breakdown of talks between the Israelis and Palestinians.
Secretary of State John Kerry, under fire for warning that Israel risks becoming “an apartheid state” in the absence of a peace deal, released a statement Monday evening pushing back hard.
“I will not allow my commitment to Israel to be questioned by anyone, particularly for partisan, political purposes,” Kerry said in a release put out by the State Department. “… If I could rewind the tape, I would have chosen a different word to describe my firm belief that the only way in the long term to have a Jewish state and two nations and two peoples living side by side in peace and security is through a two state solution.”
Political purposes? As stated at Powerline, “Just how Mr. Pompous intends to disallow questions about his commitment to Israel is unclear. What is clear is that the questions being raised aren’t a matter of partisan politics.” The fact of the matter is that the criticism and backlash toward Kerry is coming from all sides, Democrats and Republicans alike. This is bi-partisan outrage. Last time I checked, Sen. Barbara Boxer of California was a Democrat. Boxer said on Twitter that any statement comparing Israel to apartheid “is nonsensical and ridiculous.” But wait, there is also criticism from the non-partisan Anti-Defamation League, the National Jewish Democratic Council, and by Democratic partisans like Senators Barbara Boxer and Mark Begich.
Fellow Democrat Nita Lowey of New York, ranking member on the House Appropriations Committee, also spoke out on Twitter against the comments, saying: “Inflammatory rhetoric comparing Israel’s democracy to repugnant apartheid policy is irresponsible, inaccurate & counterproductive.”
Democratic Sen. Mark Begich of Alaska also spoke out against Kerry’s comments.
“Secretary Kerry knows as well as anyone that negotiating lasting peace in this region of the world is difficult but it’s not productive to express his frustration in this way,” Begich said in a statement Monday. “This remark also implies Israel should ignore the pact between [Palestinian President Mahmoud] Abbas and the Hamas. Last time I checked, the U.S. didn’t negotiate with terrorist organizations and we shouldn’t expect the Israeli government to either.”
Senator Ted Cruz (TX-R) is calling for John Kerry to resign and for Barack Obama to accept it. Cruz said in a floor speech went on to say, “Secretary Kerry has thus proven himself unsuitable for his position and that before any further harm is done to our alliance with Israel.
“Mr. President, sadly, it is my belief that Secretary Kerry has proven himself unsuitable for the position he holds. And therefore, before any further harm is done to our national security interests and to our critical alliance with the nation of Israel, John Kerry should offer President Obama his resignation and the president should accept it,” he added. “Mr. President, I would suggest the absence of a quorum.”
