Speaker John Boehner Invites Israel Prime Minister Netanyahu to Address Joint Session of Congress Regarding Iran
Let’s give Speaker John Boehner credit, where credit is due … Good for you Boehner, Feels good to do the right thing for America, doesn’t it?
Speaker of the House, John Boehner (R-OH), invites Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to speak before a joint session of Congress next month on February 11 to discussing Iran, further sanctions against them and the threat that a nuclear Iran poses to the world. Boehner said in a private meeting of GOP lawmakers that Congress would proceed on further penalties against Iran despite Obama’s warning, “[Obama] expects us to stand idly by and do nothing while he cuts a bad deal with Iran. Two words: ‘Hell no!’ We’re going to do no such thing.” It is about time the GOP has stood up to this imperial president. This is why the voters have put in place a Republican House and Senate, to block the far left and dangerous policies and agenda of Barack Obama. This all has to do with Obama threats and threats of a veto if the Congress passes further sanctions against Iran. However, there is wide bi-partisan support in favor of sanctions as Democrats are on board with protected America against Iran.
What is the Obama’s White House issue … a breech of protocol and poking Obama in the eye. Breach of protocol. are you serious? Wasn’t this the same White House that solicited British Prime Minister David Cameron to call US politicians on this very same topic of sanctions against Iran? Isn’t it amazing that Obama and his lackeys are more interested in protocol and Obama’s feelings than US national and world security.
Boehner Invites Netanyahu to Address Congress
“The Congress can make its decision on its own” — but he also insisted, “I don’t believe I’m poking anyone in the eye.”
“There is a serious threat that exists in the world, and the president last night kind of papered over it,” Boehner said.
“And the fact is is that there needs to be a more serious conversation in America about how serious the threat is from radical Islamic jihadists and the threat posed by Iran.”
“Prime Minister Netanyahu is a great friend of our country, and this invitation carries with it our unwavering commitment to the security and well-being of his people,” Boehner said. “In this time of challenge, I am asking the Prime Minister to address Congress on the grave threats radical Islam and Iran pose to our security and way of life. Americans and Israelis have always stood together in shared cause and common ideals, and now we must rise to the moment again.”
White House spokesman Josh Earnest responded to the news with the following. Ha, the Obama WH is worried about protocol, maybe they should concern themselves more with the US Constitution.
“The typical protocol would suggest that the leader of a country would contact the leader of another country when he’s traveling there,” said White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest. “That certainly is how President Obama’s trips are planned when he travels overseas. This particular event seems to be a departure from that protocol.”
Earnest said the White House was made aware of the invitation before Boehner’s office released a letter dated Jan. 21 inviting Netanyahu to address a joint session of Congress on Feb. 11.
UNREAL … OBAMA RELEASES 4 GITMO DETAINEES BACK TO AFGHANISTAN …
One way or another, whether it is in the best interest of United States security or not, Barack Obama will let all the detainees out of GITMO before he leaves the White House. Obama’s latest efforts just released 4 detainees back to Afghanistan. Don’t worry though, it is not like 168 of the GITMO detainees released return to terrorist. Oh wait, they do. But what does Obama care. He is going to do anything he damn well pleases in his final years as president because we have gutless Republican leadership who stand for nothing and have the spine of a jellyfish.
The Pentagon on Saturday announced that it had transferred four detainees from the Guantanamo Bay prison facility back to their home country of Afghanistan.
The Defense Department said all four men had been “unanimously approved for transfer” by the president’s interagency Guantanamo Review Task Force, which examines the possible security ramifications of releasing prisoners from the facility.
The transfers will bring the prison’s population down to 131, with 63 of the remaining detainees already cleared for removal.
The president has made closing the controversial facility a top priority in the final years of his presidency, and summoned senior administration officials to the White House last month to complain about the pace of efforts to close the detention center.
The meeting was seen largely as a message to Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, who the White House believed was dragging his feet in signing off on guarantees that the five upcoming transferees did not pose a security threat, according to the wire service.. There’s speculation that Hagel’s resistance played a role in the president’s decision to remove the Pentagon chief, who announced his intention to resign last month.
Obama stressed to the officials that he wanted action on efforts to shutter the controversial facility. The president pledged in his 2008 campaign that he would close the prison, and has come under fire from critics on the left for failing to achieve that goal.
AMERICA, IS THIS WHAT YOU REALLY WANT AS COMMANDER IN CHIEF?
Former Secretary of State, former US Senator of New York and former First Lady Hillary Clinton says that “Smart power” also includes “showing respect even for one’s enemies. Trying to understand … empathize with their perspective and point of view.” What Hillary Clinton calls smart power, others who actually like America and its freedoms and liberties call ignorant, foolish and naive utopian liberal BS. It is no wonder that Hillary accomplished nothing as Secretary of State except get frequent flier miles.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Wednesday that women should play larger roles in conflict resolution and military efforts around the globe and that “smart power” includes empathizing and showing respect, even for one’s enemies, as the United States confronts a host of challenges on the world stage.
Lt. Col. Oliver North appeared ‘On the Record’ with Greta Van Susteran said oh Hillary’s comments, “those words coming out of some one who intends to be commander and chief are not just naive and utopian, it’s irrational.” As Col. North pointed out when Greta tried to make excuses for Hillary about being taken out of context, Hillary was looking down at her notes and reading, not making an off the cuff comment. This is the underlying belief of progressives and liberals, we must understand why and empathize with our enemies because we must be to blame. Case in point, Obama apology tour when he first became president.
“This is what we call smart power,” Clinton said to a small audience at Georgetown. “Using every possible tool and partner to advance peace and security. Leaving no one on the sidelines. Showing respect even for one’s enemies. Trying to understand, in so far as psychologically possible, empathize with their perspective and point of view. Helping to define the problems, determine the solutions. That is what we believe in the 21st century will change — change the prospects for peace.
So are we supposed to respect and empathize with ISIS, al-Qaeda, the Taliban, Muslim Brotherhood and maybe Boko Haram? How about the terrorists who attacked the Libyan consulate in Benghazi and murdered Ambassador Stevens? How about those that would chop off the heads of innocents? Maybe Hillary would like to explain herself? But in the end, what difference would it make?
- According to Rep. Jason Chaffetz, they were caught on September 10, 2014 in two separate border locations. The 4 had ties to known terrorist groups
Oh the Irony: 42 Year Old Omar J. Gonzalez Arrested by Secret Service Inside White House … Scaled the White House Fence (VIDEO)
OK, WHO SEES THE IRONY IN AN INDIVIDUAL WITH A HISPANIC LAST NAME SCALING A FENCE AND BEING ARRESTED?
42 year old Omar J. Gonzalez of Copperas Cove, Texas was arrested Friday night after he climbed over the White House fence and made it through the North Portico doors of the White House. The White House staff members were evacuated; however, the Obama family were not at home. President Obama and his daughters had left via helicopter for the presidential retreat at Camp David, MD, just minutes before the incident. Following Gonzalez’s apprehension, he was taken to George Washington Medical Center for a medical evaluation.
Just curious, why was he arrested, why was this considered a crime? Isn’t this just a microcosm of our Southern border and the fence jumping that occurs every day? For Barack Obama and his administration, the illegals coming into the United States by scaling the Mexico-US border fence are not committing any crime. Barack Obama does not believe in border security, so why does he believe in security for the White House? Oh that’s right, that is different. For illegals who “illegally” scale a fence and cross into America get amnesty, but scale the White House fence and you get arrested.
A Texas man who scaled the White House fence made it through the North Portico doors on Friday night before being apprehended, the Secret Service said.
The intruder, Omar J. Gonzalez, 42, was arrested just inside the doors and taken to George Washington University Hospital after complaining of chest pains, said Ed Donovan, a Secret Service spokesman.
None of the Obamas were home when the security breach occurred about 7:20 p.m., but White House staff members were evacuated as a precaution, officials said. President Obama and his daughters had left for the presidential retreat at Camp David, Md., just minutes before the incident.
Mr. Gonzalez, of Copperas Cove, Tex., was not armed and was not carrying a bag or a backpack when officials spotted him jumping the fence on the Pennsylvania Avenue side, Mr. Donovan said. He ignored several calls for him to stop as officers gave chase.
No shots were fired and the White House guard dogs were not called out to stop him.

Of course then their is the other metaphor that this incident presents, if Obama can’t protect the White House from a 42 year old man, how is he going to protect America against terrorism and ISIS?
