Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Amazing Speech at AIPAC 2015, “American Leaders Worry about the Security of their Country. Israeli Leaders Worry about the Survival of their Country.”
Take a look how a real leader deals with a threat like Iran …
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will address a joint session of Congress today, but yesterday be gave a commanding speech at AIPAC. Benjamin Netanyahu will give a speech to American lawmakers, much to the dismay and anger of Barack Hussein Obama and his cronies who look to make a bad nuclear deal with an untrustworthy partner. Maybe Netanyahu’s speech was best summed up by the following statement that maybe most common sense thinking people can understand, “America lives in one of the world’s safest neighborhoods. Israel lives in the world’s most dangerous neighborhood. America is the strongest power in the world. Israel is strong, but it’s much more vulnerable. American leaders worry about the security of their country. Israeli leaders worry about the survival of their country.”
Ladies and gentlemen, the purpose of my address to Congress tomorrow is to speak up about a potential deal with Iran that could threaten the survival of Israel. Iran is the foremost state sponsor of terrorism in the world.
This is what Iran is doing now without nuclear weapons. Imagine what Iran would do with nuclear weapons.
And this same Iran vows to annihilate Israel. If it develops nuclear weapons, it would have the means to achieve that goal. We must not let that happen.
And as prime minister of Israel, I have a moral obligation to speak up in the face of these dangers while there’s still time to avert them. For 2000 years, my people, the Jewish people, were stateless, defenseless, voiceless. We were utterly powerless against our enemies who swore to destroy us. We suffered relentless persecution and horrific attacks. We could never speak on our own behalf, and we could not defend ourselves.
Well, no more, no more.
Benjamin Netanyahu ended his speech by saying the following, by praising the long, lasting relationship with the United States that goes beyond friends, it is family. However, sometimes families have disagreements. Who does not think that? But not during the Obama administration. If you do not “goose step” to Obama’s way, he an his minions with trash you, marginalize you and call you a racist. Some 55 Democrat Congressional members will boycott this speech of our greatest ally in the Middle East. How sad, that Democrats would pick the wrong side of history and side with Iran over Israel.
Ladies and gentlemen, Israel and the United States will continue to stand together because America and Israel are more than friends. We’re like a family. We’re practically mishpocha.
Now, disagreements in the family are always uncomfortable, but we must always remember that we are family.
Rooted in a common heritage, upholding common values, sharing a common destiny. And that’s the message I came to tell you today. Our alliance is sound. Our friendship is strong. And with your efforts it will get even stronger in the years to come.
Thank you, AIPAC. Thank you, America. God bless you all.”

From The National Review – Netanyahu, Not Obama, Speaks for Us.
While under fierce attack from President Obama, the Israeli prime minister defends Western values and speaks the truth about Iran. The leader of the free world will be addressing Congress on Tuesday. The American president is doing everything possible to undermine him. Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu leads a nation surrounded by enemies, a nation so small that it narrows at one point to just 9.3 miles. Yet, in a world where the Oval Office is manned by someone openly apologetic for most American exercises of power; and where Western Europe’s economy is enervated, its people largely faithless, and its leadership feckless; and where Freedom House has found “an overall drop in [global] freedom for the ninth consecutive year,” the safeguarding of our civilization might rely more on leaders who possess uncommon moral courage than on those who possess the most nukes or biggest armies.
As Barack Obama complains (with scant grasp of the historical context) about how Christians were such gosh-darn meanies a thousand years ago in the Crusades, Netanyahu protects the ability of Muslims today to have free access to the Old City of Jerusalem, even as Jews and Christians are prohibited from visiting the Temple Mount. At the beginning of his first term, in his first trip overseas as president, Obama delivered a speech to Turkey’s parliament, under the thumb of the repressive Tayyip Erdogan. “The United States is still working through some of our own darker periods in our history,” he confessed, sounding like America’s therapist-in-chief. “Our country still struggles with the legacies of slavery and segregation, the past treatment of Native Americans.”
Netanyahu, in contrast, in a 2011 Meet the Press interview, offered unabashed words of praise for the United States: “Israel is the one country in which everyone is pro-American, opposition and coalition alike. And I represent the entire people of Israel who say, ‘Thank you, America.’ And we’re friends of America, and we’re the only reliable allies of America in the Middle East.” (Netanyahu was accurate in his description of how much Israelis appreciate Americans, as I saw last summer during a visit to the country.)
Daily Commentary – Monday, March 2, 2015 – Obama Thwarts an Israeli Air Force Attack on Iran’s Nuclear Facility in 2014
- This according to a report in a Kuwaiti newspaper on Saturday … Obama threatened to shot down Israeli Jets.
Did President Barack Hussein Obama Really Threaten to Shoot Down Israeli Jets if IAF Targeted Iranian Nuclear Sites
Please note the below news story is from the Israeli National News; however, with this administration and the treatment of US allies, anything is possible …
There was a time in this country when no one would have ever thought that a US President would ever think of let alone threaten to shoot down Israeli jets that targeted Iranian nuclear sites. In fact, one would have thought that US presidents would have wanted Israel to take care of the problem. That was BBHO, before Before Barack Hussein Obama. The Obama presidency has been one of the most anti-Israeli, anti-Semitic administrations in US history. As Pamela Gellar opines, “He doesn’t even pretend anymore, the Democrats have become the anti-Israel party with the anti-Semite-in-chief.”
The Bethlehem-based news agency Ma’an has cited a Kuwaiti newspaper report Saturday, that US President Barack Obama thwarted an Israeli military attack against Iran’s nuclear facilities in 2014 by threatening to shoot down Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran.
Following Obama’s threat, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was reportedly forced to abort the planned Iran attack.
According to Al-Jarida, the Netanyahu government took the decision to strike Iran some time in 2014 soon after Israel had discovered the United States and Iran had been involved in secret talks over Iran’s nuclear program and were about to sign an agreement in that regard behind Israel’s back.
The report claimed that an unnamed Israeli minister who has good ties with the US administration revealed the attack plan to Secretary of State John Kerry, and that Obama then threatened to shoot down the Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran.
Former US diplomat Zbigniew Brzezinski, who enthusiastically campaigned for Obama in 2008, called on him to shoot down Israeli planes if they attack Iran. “They have to fly over our airspace in Iraq. Are we just going to sit there and watch?” said the former national security advisor to former President Jimmy Carter in an interview with the Daily Beast.
“We have to be serious about denying them that right,” he said. “If they fly over, you go up and confront them. They have the choice of turning back or not. No one wishes for this but it could be a ‘Liberty’ in reverse.’”
Too bad that Obama could not get tough like this with ISIS and terrorism.
Documents Recovered from Osama bin Laden’s Compound in Recovered in Pakistan Reveal Iran Is Assisting Al-Qaeda & Has Worked With Terrorist Group For Years
And you wonder why Barack Obama is so pissed that Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is speaking to Congress regarding Iran.
Steve Hayes of The Weekly Standard has delivered a bombshell … Obama Admin Ignored Proof of Iran-Al Qaeda Link After UBL Raid. The Obama White House has been sitting on these documents for years as they now look to make a nuclear deal with Iran. Are you kidding me. Hayes argued that the Obama administration does not want this information to come out as it seeks a deal with Tehran on its nuclear program. You think? How on earth does any US President ignore such a terrorist tie and claim to be acting in the best interest of the United States? This is why Obama has been hell-bent on preventing Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to speak to Congress and the American people. This has nothing to do with protocol issues, it is because Obama wants to make a deal with Iran at any cost. Barack Obama putting the “Hussein” in Barack Hussein Obama.
More striking is Iran’s support for al Qaeda. Last week, for the first time in nearly three years, the public saw new information from the bin Laden raid. Documents released as part of a terror trial in New York City show, in the words of the al Qaeda leaders themselves, Iran’s availability for training and safe haven. One letter from a senior al Qaeda operative to bin Laden in June 2010 lays out the plans of a core al Qaeda leader to travel to Iran. The letter notes that “Sheikh Yunis” is ready to travel and “the destination, in principle, is Iran. And he has with him six to eight brothers that he chose. I told him we are waiting for final complete confirmation from you to move and agree on this destination (Iran). His plan is: stay around for three months in Iran to train the brothers there then start moving them and distributing them in the world for their missions and specialties.”
This comes on top of what we already know about Iran and al Qaeda. As Thomas Joscelyn reported here last week, at least three al Qaeda plots targeting Western interests were hatched in Iran since Obama took office. As the administration pined for Iran to rejoin the community of civilized nations, the Treasury was churning out reports showing Tehran had no such interest. In its designation of Yasin al-Suri, “a prominent Iran-based al Qaeda facilitator,” Treasury wrote in December 2011: “Operating under an agreement between al Qaeda and the Iranian Government, al-Suri moves money and al Qaeda recruits from the Middle East through Iran and on to Pakistan and Afghanistan.”
New unclassified documents recovered from from the Osama bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan during the 2011 US Navy Seal team raid that killed UBL as evidence in the trial of a terrorism suspect show secret ties between Al Qaeda and Iran. Yes, that very Iran that President Barack Hussein Obama has been bending over backwards for trying to making a nuclear deal with has he throws our greatest ally in the Middle East, Israel, under the bus. It is becoming quite obvious now why Barack Obama and his minions have been trashing Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ahead of his speech in front of Congress this coming Thursday as a preemptive strike to discredit him. What is Obama afraid of, Netanyahu will speak the truth?
This week, prosecutors in New York introduced eight documents recovered in Osama bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan as evidence in the trial of a terrorism suspect. The U.S. government accuses Abid Naseer of taking part in al Qaeda’s scheme to attack targets in Europe and New York City. And prosecutors say the documents are essential for understanding the scope of al Qaeda’s plotting.
More than 1 million documents and files were captured by the Navy Seals who raided bin Laden’s safe house in Abbottabad, Pakistan in May 2011. One year later, in May 2012, the Obama administration released just 17 of them.
While there is some overlap between the files introduced as evidence in Brooklyn and those that were previously made public in 2012, much of what is in the trial exhibits had never been made public before.
The files do not support the view, promoted by some in the Obama administration, that bin Laden was in “comfortable retirement,” “sidelined,” or “a lion in winter” in the months leading up to his death. On the contrary, bin Laden is asked to give his order on a host of issues, ranging from the handling of money to the movement of terrorist operatives.
Some of the key revelations in the newly-released bin Laden files relate to al Qaeda’s dealings with Iran and presence in Afghanistan.
According to the report, the administration has only analyzed 10 percent of the more than one million documents they recovered.
On “America’s Newsroom,” Hayes argued that the Obama administration does not want this information to come out as it seeks a deal with Tehran on its nuclear program.
He said the president wants to “decouple” the negotiations on Iran’s nuclear program from the regime’s support for terrorist organizations.
Hayes said the initial “scrub” of the bin Laden documents by the CIA was very successful, producing 400 intelligence reports and leading to U.S. actions around the world against al Qaeda.
“Then it all stopped. The CIA basically sat on the documents. … I think it’s because the Obama administration didn’t want to know what was in them,” said Hayes, adding that the documents would have had “tremendous implications” for U.S. foreign policy overall.
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.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME … JUST HOW DANGEROUS IS BARACK OBAMA FOR AMERICA?
And you wonder why the Democrats got a real “ass-whuppin” on November 4 in the 2014 midterm elections. As reported in the NRO, President Barack Hussein Obama penned a “secret” letter to Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, in an effort according to sources, to fight the Islamic State (ISIS) and to nudge Iran’s religious leader closer to a nuclear deal. Yes, the same Islamic, Jew hating leader who has called for the death of Israel. WOW. What the hell is this president thinking? As The Daily Caller opines, “the President of the United States has had a tough week. First he watched the voters thoroughly repudiate him. Now the news is out that he’s been begging and pleading for help from the Supreme Leader of Iran, who has no time for him either.
Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, Barack Hussein Obama – Bosom Buddies
November 24, the deadline for a nuclear deal with Iran, approaches, and things aren’t looking good. With less than three weeks left, Iran is adopting a hardline negotiating position. And although there’s time left to reach a good deal, President Obama’s current strategy is problematic.
Yesterday the Wall Street Journal reported that last month Obama wrote his fourth “secret” letter to Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei. According to sources, he did so in an effort “aimed both at buttressing the Islamic State campaign and nudging Iran’s religious leader closer to a nuclear deal.”
No problem, right? After all, what harm can a letter do? Actually, a lot. The Journal quotes a senior White House official who provides context for Obama’s outreach: “We’ve passed on messages to the Iranians … saying our objective is against ISIL. We’re not using this as a platform to reoccupy Iraq or to undermine Iran.”
Saying this to Iran is the diplomatic equivalent of telling an ill-reputed used-car salesman, “Money is no object, I don’t need a test drive, and I’m desperate to buy today.” It’s not very clever.
Iran’s hardliners are likely to see the president’s latest letter as a verification of increasing American malleability. But there’s a deeper issue here. As I noted in September, the administration’s willingness to see the best in Iran without challenging the worst manages to inspire only the latter. While we offer friendship, from Beirut to Baghdad, from Sanaa to Washington, Iran forges power through violent opportunism. Members of the Lebanese and Iraqi parliaments recognize Iran’s proclamations of peace for what they are: a thin veil concealing an absolutist agenda. Not incidentally, many American military personnel, through personal experience, share the same skeptical view
House Speaker John Boehner (R., Ohio) expressed concern Thursday when asked about President Barack Obama recent overture to Iran, in which the president outlined a shared interest in countering Islamic State militants in the region.
“I don’t trust the Iranians, I don’t think we need to bring them into this,” Mr. Boehner said.
Lawmakers — especially Republicans, but also many Democrats — want to have a say in any agreement that comes out of international nuclear talks by a Nov. 24 deadline. Secret communications between the administration and Tehran are likely to raise eyebrows.
Mitt Romney slammed President Barack Obama on Friday for reaching out to Iran in the fight against Islamic State militants, calling the president’s recent letter to Ayatollah Ali Khamenei “astonishing” and “an enormous error.”
“I was frankly stunned that the president of the United States would write a letter of that nature and in effect, legitimize a nation and a leadership which is violating international norms and is threatening the world,” the 2012 Republican presidential candidate told the audience of the Israeli American Council’s inaugural national conference at the Washington Hilton.
2016 cannot come soon enough, this president is just too damn dangerous for America.
BARACK OBAMA, THE WORST PRESIDENT EVER!!!
According to the most recent Gallup poll, three day rolling average, Barack Obama has tied his all-time low for job approval at 38%. At some point though, Obama’s job approval numbers have to sink even lower as we look around and nothing, I mean nothing is positive for the United states or Americans, both in domestic and foreign policy, in the disastrous Obama presidency. As Obama’s poll numbers continue to shrink, the MSM-Democrat state run media complex refuses to report the news.
- U.S. Economy added a pathetic 142,000 jobs in August, 2014
- The July payroll number was revised up from plus 209,000 jobs to plus 212,000 but June’s count was revised down from 298,000 jobs added to 267,000. Total employment gains those months were therefore 28,000 lower than what BLS originally reported.
- Black unemployment at 11.4%
- Labor Force; Participation Rate Matches 36-Year Low, 92,269,000 not in work force.
- IRS Scandal Continues … Benghazi-gate scandal continues.
- ISIS on the move creating a caliphate, murdering innocents and beheading two Americans with a muddled, dithering and weak response from Obama.
- Obama, a disastrous conclusion that ISIS was the Jayvee, turns out it was Obama who is the rank amateur.
- Putin on the move … China on the move … ISIS on the move … Iran’s nuclear capability on the move Thanks to a weak Ditherer in Chief and the world no longer fears the US because of Obama.
- Obamacare is to a costly joke.
- Afghanistan and Iraq all but lost after the loss of so many brave American military souls.
- Amnesty for illegals.
The below average polling for Obama’s job approval is at 40.25% Approve and 54.25% Disapprove.
Reuters/Ipsos – 8/30 – 9/3: 38% Approve – 56% Disapprove (-18)
Gallup – 9/2 – 9/5 : 38% Approve – 54% Disapprove (-16)
The Economist/YouGov – 8/30 – 9/1: 41% Approve - 56% Disapprove (-15)
GWU/Battleground – 8/23 – 8/28: 44% Approve - 51 Disapprove (-7)
USA Today/Pew Research – 8/20 – 8/24: 42% Approve - 50% Disapprove (-8)

When the Lunatic Fring Becomes the Norm … Democrats Say Climate Change Is a Bigger Threat than ISIS, Al-Qaeda & Iran’s and Noth Korea’s Nuclear Programs
THIS IS NOT YOUR FATHER’S DEMOCRAT PARTY …
Want to know why we have a dithering president when it comes to ISIS? According to a recent PEW poll, Barack Obama and Democrats think that global warming is actually more of a threat than terrorist groups like Al-Qaeda or ISIS. The poll shows also that climate change is also more of a concern for Democrats than nuclear programs in Iran and North Korea. This is what America has elected president, not once, but twice and have given a majority to in the US Senate. Image if Obama was in office during the Cuban Missile Crisis? What is it going to take for a lazy, apathetic and clueless electorate to wake up, another 9-11? And you wonder why Obama has no strategy to deal with ISIS, he is too busy with his “BS” green energy give-aways that have cost the American tax payers dearly.
WAKE UP AMERICA AND TAKE VOTING AND YOUR COUNTRY AS IMPORTANT AS YOU DO AS AMERICAN IDOL, DANCING WITH THE STARS AND DUCK DYNASTY!!!
