The Obama Administration once again treating an American ally badly … I guess this is one way of making Hillary Clinton look good.
The Daily Beast is reporting that Sec. of State John Kerry said during a closed door meeting of the Trilateral Commission on Friday that if Israel doesn’t make peace soon, it could become ‘an apartheid state,’ like the old South Africa. That’s the way John Kerry, piss off one of America’s greatest allies, that will win them over. Hey Kerry, I must have missed which one want to eradicate Israeli’s? And who did Fatah just embrace last week … can you say Hamas. This is unbecoming of a Secretary of State and usually a president would be asking for a resignation, but not when they are doing Obama’s foreign policy bidding.
So Barack, then I told them if they do not accept our all or nothing peace solution, Israel could become ‘An Apartheid State’.
I see John, you do realize that was not meant to be repeated publicly, right?
The secretary of state said that if Israel doesn’t make peace soon, it could become ‘an apartheid state,’ like the old South Africa. Jewish leaders are fuming over the comparison.
If there’s no two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict soon, Israel risks becoming “an apartheid state,” Secretary of State John Kerry told a room of influential world leaders in a closed-door meeting Friday.
Senior American officials have rarely, if ever, used the term “apartheid” in reference to Israel, and President Obama has previously rejected the idea that the word should apply to the Jewish state. Kerry’s use of the loaded term is already rankling Jewish leaders in America—and it could attract unwanted attention in Israel, as well.
It wasn’t the only controversial comment on the Middle East that Kerry made during his remarks to the Trilateral Commission, a recording of which was obtained by The Daily Beast. Kerry also repeated his warning that a failure of Middle East peace talks could lead to a resumption of Palestinian violence against Israeli citizens. He suggested that a change in either the Israeli or Palestinian leadership could make achieving a peace deal more feasible. He lashed out against Israeli settlement-building. And Kerry said that both Israeli and Palestinian leaders share the blame for the current impasse in the talks.
Imagine being on a job interview and asked about your accomplishments to be considered for the job and you got nothing …
Thus was the case for Hillary Clinton when Thomas Friedman asked her what do you see as your biggest accomplishment on the job as stated by Salon political writer Steve Kornacki to the MSNBC Hardball audience. Hoe is it possible that even Hillary Clinton herself was “flummoxed” when asked about her accomplishments?
“So Joan, you know, this isn’t just a case of State Department spokesperson being caught off guard one day. This is something that sounds like Hillary herself has not fully come up with a way to articulate. Republicans clearly think this is something they can hit her with in 2016.”
Hmm, how’s it going in Syria, Libya, North Korea, Iran or Russia? Maybe Hillary should have said the Russian reset button, the powder keg that now is the Middle East or Benghazi … but I guess what difference does it make.
Hillary Clinton “Flummoxed” When Questioned About Accomplishments
State Department spokeswoman can’t name Hillary Clinton’s diplomatic achievements … and neither can Hillary Clinton!
State Department Press Secretary Jen Psaki was flummoxed, too, when asked about a 2010 State Department Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review (QDDR) that summarized then-Secretary Clinton’s goals and accomplishments.
‘Can you, off the top of your head, identify one tangible achievement that … resulted from the last QDDR?’ asked an Associated Press reporter during the daily briefing.
‘I am certain that those who were here at the time, who worked hard on that effort, could point out one,’ Psaki replied through a forced smile.
‘I’m sure there are a range of things that were put into place that I’m not even aware of,’ she offered moments later.
‘I won’t hold my breath,’ the reporter shot back
NY Times Columnist David Brooks States: “Obama Has a Manhood Problem in the Middle East … Is He Tough Enough …?”
OUCH, Obama has a manhood problem in the Middle East, subtitled … Obama wears mom jeans.
New York Times columnists David Brooks went there this past Sunday on Meet the Press, questioning whether Barack Obama has the “co-jones” to deal with tough situations like in the Middle East and against a leader like Russia’s Vladimire Putin … “[L]et’s face it. Obama, whether deservedly or not, does have a, I’ll say it crudely, but a manhood problem in the Middle East. Is he tough enough to stand up to somebody like Assad, somebody like Putin?” NBC’s Chuck Todd said during the round table, “Internally they fear this”.
David Brooks: “And let’s face it, Obama, whether deservedly or not, does have a — I’ll say it crudely, but a manhood problem in the Middle East,” Brooks said. “Is he tough enough to stand up to somebody like Assad or Putin? A lot of the rap is unfair, but certainly in the Middle East, there’s an assumption he’s not tough.”
Chuck Todd: “Internally they fear this. It’s not just Bob Corker saying it, questioning whether the president is being alpha male — that’s essentially what he’s saying, he’s not alpha dog enough, his rhetoric isn’t tough enough. They agree with the policy decisions, but it’s the rhetoric. Internally, this is a question.”
Gotta Love It When This Happens …
Islamists were introduced to poetic justice and irony when 29 so-called rebels were killed when the car bombs they were loading into a vehicle prematurely exploded in the Syrian city of Homs. A guess these folks need to go back and re-read the chapter in the terrorists hand guide to bombs that deals with loading cars with explosives. But we will make it as Weasel Zippers did, the feel good story of the day.
Question, do they still get the virgins?

At least 29 rebels died in a blast Sunday in the central Syrian city of Homs as they primed a car bomb for an attack, a monitoring group said.
In the capital, meanwhile, two people were killed when mortar fire struck the Damascus Opera House, state media reported.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group said at least 29 people were killed, most or all of them believed to be rebels, in the besieged Old City of Homs when a car bomb exploded.
“The death toll is likely to rise because there are dozens of people missing and body parts in the area of the blast,” the Britain-based group said.
State news agency SANA also reported the blast, saying a car had exploded while being loaded with explosives.
They Have No Shame … Susan Rice Says She Has No Regrets Over Initial Benghazi Interviews, ‘Patently False’ That I Misled American People (VIDEO)
Doubling Down … Softball interview with NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’ … National Security Adviser Susan Rice says she has no regrets on Benghazi interview following the death of four Americans.
Oh what tangled webs we weave when we practice to deceive. The Obama administration is simply incapable of telling the truth. National Security Adviser Susan Rice, when asked this Sunday on ‘Meet the Press,’ said that she had no regrets with what she said on five Sunday network talk shows in misleading the America public is saying the Benghazi attack was based on a video tape rather than a terror attack. Rice claims that it is “settled science” that the Obama administration had done nothing wrong. Rice stated some of the information turned out not to be correct, “but the notion that somehow I or anybody else in the administration misled the American people is patently false. And I think that that’s been amply demonstrated.” HA, this from the Obama administration that said, if you liked your insurance plan, you can keep your insurance plan, PERIOD! I am sensing a pattern.
No regrets, really? The reason why she is not Secretary of State Rice and is only the National Security Adviser is because of those lies. Of course an all too in the tank bias media was no where to be found as David Gregory asked no follow up questions to contradict her “Alinky” comments.
Yeah, not a smidgen of corruption whatsoever.
National Security Adviser Susan Rice said Sunday she has no regrets about her now-infamous round of TV interviews in 2012 about the the attacks on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya.
Rice, appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” said that nobody in the Obama administration intended to mislead the American people when she appeared on Fox, ABC, CNN, NBC and CBS in 2012 shortly after the attacks.
Asked by host David Gregory if she had any regrets about the interviews, Rice replied: “No.”
“Because what I said to you that morning, and what I did every day since, was to share the best information that we had at the time,” Rice said. “The information I provided, which I explained to you, was what we had at the moment. It could change. I commented that this was based on what we knew on that morning, was provided to me and my colleagues and, indeed, to Congress, by the intelligence community. And that’s been well validated in many different ways since.”
“That information turned out, in some respects, not to be 100 percent correct,” she acknowledged. “But the notion that somehow I or anybody else in the administration misled the American people is patently false. And I think that that’s been amply demonstrated.”
US Homeland Security is warning airlines to beware of possible terror shoe bombs. Hmm, haven’t the Islamists already tried this?
According to accounts, there is no specific threat or known plot, but obviously the NSA must have overheard someones cell phone conversation or read their emails. As reported at NBC News, several officials familiar with the advisory that “very recent intelligence” considered credible warns of possible attempts to attack passenger jets using explosives concealed in shoes. One would have thought after the failed attempt by Richard Reid, that the cat would have been out of the bag as to this method of delivering a bomb. Sadly, these terrorists are persistent on killing innocent people in the name of Allah.
Hmm, I guess Al-Qaeda is not on the run, they might even be in the friendly skies.
The U.S. government has warned airlines to pay particular attention to the possibility of terrorists attempting to hide explosives in shoes, a result of new intelligence, according to two people familiar with the situation.
The officials stressed there is no specific threat or known plot.
Intelligence collected by the United States and other countries has indicated terror groups have been working on new shoe-bomb designs, the sources said Wednesday.
That knowledge prompted the Department of Homeland Security to warn airlines to be on the lookout for explosives hidden in shoes on flights from overseas to the United States, they said.
A separate intelligence official underscored the warning was issued out of a sense of heightened caution.
“This threat is not specific or credible enough to require a specific response. DHS often issues these alerts out of an abundance of caution, but this does not necessarily rise to the level of facilitating a response,” the intelligence official said.
Muslim Cleric Abu Musaab Wajdi Akkari Rants Saying “Merry Christmas” Is Worse than Fornication, Alcohol, or Murder … A Religion of Peace
Because Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance …
Talk about giving the “war on Christmas” new meaning. Muslim cleric Abu Musaab Wajdi Akkari told his supporters saying “Merry Christmas” was worse than fornication, alcohol or murder. Why of course it is, NOT!!! Yup, this Muslim cleric is stating that saying “Merry Christmas” is worse than fornication, drinking alcohol, and killing someone. I guess we now get an understanding of just how radical Islam condones murdering people, especially Christians.
I am guessing that Abu Musaab Wajdi Akkari didn’t get the Pope’s Christmas memo. However, mum is the word from Jesse Jackson, GLAAD and NOW.
Abu Musaab Wajdi Akkari: You cannot say: “Merry Christmas.” Not even if an alien came and said it to you – you cannot even say it to him, and say: “He’s just an alien. I’m never going to see him again. He’s not going to tell anyone.”
No “Merry Christmas” – not from a Muslim and not from a non-Muslim. It’s not part of our religion – period! It is the concept that God was born on the 25th of December. That’s as polytheistic and heretic as you can get. [editors note" Hey Abu, it was Jesus Christ not God on that December 25th thing. If you are going to preach hate, at least get your facts correct.]
When you say: “Merry Christmas,” you are saying: “Congratulations on your false religion,” “Congratulations on your false understanding of life.” You are congratulating them on the most evil of polytheism and heresy.
As Ibn Qayyim said, this is worse than fornication, drinking alcohol, and killing someone, because you are approving of the biggest crime every committed by the children of Adam – polytheism.
By the way, Abu Musaab Wajdi Akkari … MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
National Security Advisor Susan Rice Does ’60 Minutes’ Interview and Calls Blaming Benghazi on the Mohammed Video a ‘False Controversy’ … What Difference Does it Make, Eh?
Susan Rice just did Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton no favors with her ’60 Minutes’ interview … “FALSE CONTROVERSY”!!!
National Security Adviser Susan Rice appeared on ’60 Minutes’ to do an interview with Leslie Stahl and I have no idea why. Rice did nothing but continue the stonewalling on Benghazi. She continued the Hillary Clinton talking points of “what difference does it make” when she said during last nights interview, “I don’t have time to think about a false controversy.” Doesn’t this pretty much sum up the Obama presidency … get caught in a scandal and instead of coming clean, double down and continue to deny it. Then there was that hard hitting piece of the interview where we found out Susan Rice was a mother. Really CBS, really? But then again it is not like ’60 Minutes’ has clean hands.
The American Spectator reminds us that ’60 Minutes’
mislead the public about the cover-up effort on Benghazi-gate and the effort by the Obama administration to blame the attack on anti-Muslim tapes.
Hmm, Susan Rice says Hillary Clinton didn’t do 5 Sunday morning talk shows because she was to busy lying to the families of those killed at the Benghazi consulate. Just the kind of person that we need president, isn’t it?
Susan Rice: I don’t have time to think about a false controversy. In the midst of all of the swirl about things like talking points, the administration’s been working very, very hard across the globe to review our security of our embassies and our facilities. That’s what we ought to be focused on.
Lesley Stahl: But the questions keep coming. When someone heard that I was going to be talking to you they said, “You have to ask her why Hillary Clinton didn’t do the interview that morning.” Did she, did she smell trouble?
Susan Rice: She had just gone through an incredibly painful and stressful week. Secretary Clinton, as our chief diplomat, had to reach out to the families, had to greet the bodies upon their arrival at Andrews Air Force Base. If I were her, the last thing I would have wanted to do is five Sunday morning talk shows. So I think it’s perfectly understandable–
Lesley Stahl: So when they asked you –
Susan Rice: So when the White House asked me, I agreed to do it.
Lesley Stahl: Do you ever think, “Gee, I wish I hadn’t done that.” You know, if you hadn’t done that, I’d be calling you Madam Secretary of State maybe.
Benghazi-gate will doom Hillary Clinton. She has much explaining to do and it does make a difference Hillary!!!

CNN’s State of the Union with Candy Crowley: Sen. Feinstein (D-CA) & Rep. Rogers (R-MI) Both Say America Is Less Safe From Terrorism Today Than It Has Been in Recent Years … What Happened to Obama’s Claim “Al-Qaeda is on the run”
Looks like Americans were told another lie, I thought President Barack Hussein Obama told us that Al-Qaeda was on the run and on the road to defeat?
This Sunday on CNN’s State of the Union with Candy Crowley, Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA), chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee and Rep. Mike Rogers (R-MI), chair of the House Intelligence Committee, were in complete bipartisan agreement that the United States is less safe from terrorism today than it has been in recent years. Remember when Barack Obama ran on the reelection sound byte that “Al-Qaeda was on the run and on the path to defeat”. Hmm, too bad this president is all about campaigning to win an election and not about leading to defend America against its enemies.
Americans shouldn’t feel safer today than they did before the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, the leaders of the Senate and House intelligence committees said Sunday.
The country now faces a larger number of threats from splintered terrorist groups and more complex weapons than when the U.S. began combat operations in Afghanistan in 2001, the lawmakers said on CNN’s State of the Union. At the same time, the nation’s spy programs–which can help foil terrorist plots–are under heavy scrutiny that could ultimately lessen their effectiveness.
“The threat is higher today and we’re probably less safe,” Rep. Mike Rogers (R., Mich.), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said.
His counterpart in the Senate agreed.
“I think terror is up world-wide,” said Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.). “There are new bombs, very big bombs…and more groups than ever.”
Sen. Feinstein said advanced weapons make it easier to bring a bomb onto an airplane and make it harder to track possible threats.
CROWLEY: The big question that’s always asked, are we safer now than we were a year ago, two years ago? In general?
FEINSTEIN: I don’t think so. I think terror is up worldwide, the statistics indicate that, the fatalities are way up. The numbers are way up. There are new bombs, very big bombs, trucks being reinforced for those bombs. There are bombs that go through magnatometers. The bomb maker is still alive. There are more groups that ever and there’s huge malevolence out there.
CROWLEY: So congressman, I have to say, that is not the answer I expected. I expected to hear, oh, we’re safer. Do you agree?
ROGERS: Oh, I absolutely agree that we’re not safer today for the same very reasons.
So the pressure on our intelligence services to get it right to prevent an attack are enormous. And it’s getting more difficult because we see the al Qaeda as we knew it before is metastasizing to something different, more affiliates than we’ve ever had before, meaning more groups that operated independently of al Qaeda have now joined al Qaeda around the world, all of them have at least some aspiration to commit an act of violence in the United States or against western targets all around the world.
They’ve now switched to this notion that maybe smaller events are okay. So if you have more smaller events than bigger events, they think that might still lead to their objectives and their goals. That makes it exponentially harder for our intelligence services to stop an event like that.
CROWLEY: Because essentially one person can do a small event.
CROWLEY: So, one of the things that the senator said was that there is more hatred out there, more – and why is that? (read more HERE)
How’s that post Iraq looking these days? How’s that claim of the defeat of terrorism looking today? How’s that talking with the Taliban in Afghanistan, the very enemy we looked to defeat, for a troop withdrawal looking these days? How is Libya looking? How about Syria? This is what happens when you put a community agitator, presidential novice in the White House.
UNREAL, Barack Obama Has Not Called Israel Yet on Signed Iran Nuclear Agreement … Israeli PM Netanyahu Calls It a “Historical Mistake” Then Kerry Says There is “No Daylight” Between Israel & the US”
The Audacity of Obama and his Minions, Ain’t No Way to Treat America’s Friends Barack … Israel PM Netanyahu finding out what it s like to be an American lied to and disrespected by the Obama Administration.
How is the following possible? Not only did President Barack Obama not call Israeli officials before the nuclear agreement was signed last night in Geneva between Iran and the six world powers, but as of this morning as reported on FOX News, Obama still hasn’t called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu about the agreement. This is just simply shameful and disrespectful. Israel is our greatest ally in the Middle East and a direct target of Iran. Just this past week in a speech, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei described Israel as “a rabid dog” and the public responded with calls of ‘Death to America! Death to Israel!’
Maybe Obama previously told Netanyahu that we have to pass the nuclear deal to see what’s in it and promised him that they can keep their same secure Israel, if they like it?
Following the signing of the nuclear agreement, Israeli PM Netanyahu blasted it as a ‘historic mistake.’
Israel on Sunday lashed out at the Geneva nuclear deal brokered by world powers as being heavily stacked in Iran’s favour, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu calling it a “historic mistake.”
Following a months-long diplomatic campaign warning of the dangers of easing economic sanctions on Iran in exchange for steps to curb its contested nuclear programme, senior cabinet ministers chimed in, with one saying Israel reserved the right to strike Iran on its own.
Netanyahu told his cabinet on Sunday that “what was achieved yesterday in Geneva is not a historic agreement but rather a historic mistake,” according to a post on spokesman Ofir Gendelman’s Twitter account.
Then Obama’s Secretary of State
Thurstan Howell III John Kerry goes on ‘This Week’ with George Stephanopoulos and lies that Israel supported the nuclear deal with Iran, claiming there is “no daylight” between Israel and the US”. UNBELIEVABLE. No daylight? There is so much daylight you could drive a truck thru it, or a nuclear missile. This administration is just incapable of telling the truth on anything. This is just frightening. How in the hell did these people get reelected? The lied about taking over 1/6th of the United State’s economy with Obamacare, now they are doing the same with ours and Israel’s national security.
“Israel and the United States absolutely share the same goal here. There is no daylight between us, with respect to what we want to achieve at this point,” Kerry told “This Week” anchor George Stephanopoulos shortly after the deal was reached. “We both want to make it certain Iran cannot have a nuclear weapon. And Iran cannot be in a place where they can breakout and suddenly get that nuclear weapon.”
