We all know that the Obama Administration has never been a cheerleader for Benjamin Netanyahu or Israel. However, when the majority of the United States population support Israel and its Prime Minister, and we want Senate approval of the Iran Nuclear deal, shouldn’t the White House follow the wishes of the people? Are we still a government of the people, by the people and for the people, or have we become a country of Obama, by Obama and for Obama?
It was recently discovered that the Obama Administration allegedly used $350,000 taxpayer dollars to help oust Netanyahu from office in the current election. Is this the action of a leader that is following the wishes of the people, or the action of a President who is fulfilling a high school level payback to a real leader, Netanyahu, who the American people love and support? As reported by Fox News,
“A powerful U.S. Senate investigatory committee has launched a bipartisan probe into an American nonprofit’s funding of efforts to oust Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu after the Obama administration’s State Department gave the nonprofit taxpayer-funded grants, a source with knowledge of the panel’s activities told FoxNews.com . . .
According to the source, the probe is looking into “funding” by OneVoice Movement – a Washington-based group that has received $350,000 in recent State Department grants, and until last November was headed by a veteran diplomat from the Clinton administrations.”
Jeremy Bird, who served as Obama’s campaign National field director in 2012, is one of four U.S. consultants working with Tele Aviv based Victory 2015 or V15, to oust Benjamin Netanyahu from office. He has been described by Israeli newspapers as V15’s “secret campaign weapon.” V15 says it supports no particular candidate, but want to replace Netanyahu. V15 is funded by an organization called OneVoice. Bird told Haaretz,
“Israel is ideal for door-to-door campaigning due to the small size of the country. Because of the large number of political parties and high voter turnout, he believes it’s possible to talk with enough people to change the government.”
The United States citizens are painfully aware of the current administration’s feelings about Benjamin Netanyahu. Back in 2011, President Obama was caught on a hot mike along with French President Nicolas Sarkozy, complaining about Netanyahu. As reported in ABC News,
“Obama began by reproaching Sarkozy for not warning him in advance that France would vote in favor of Palestinian membership of UNESCO,” “The conversation turned to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, with Sarkozy saying ,’I don’t want to see him anymore, he’s a liar.’ “To which President Obama replied: ‘You’ve had enough of him, but I have to deal with him every day!’ Obama then asked Sarkozy to try to convince the Palestinians to slow down with their UN membership drive.
“A senior Obama administration official recently described the Israeli prime minister as “chickenshit,” according to Jeffrey Goldberg of The Atlantic. The list also includes descriptions such as “recalcitrant, myopic, reactionary, obtuse, blustering, pompous, and ‘Aspergery,’ ” according to Goldberg.”
In an article by Randy Hall at Newsbusters, John Nolte, editor-at-large of the breitbart.com website, stated,
“Despite months of relentless attacks coming from president Obama, his White House and his sycophants in the mainstream media, here in America, Benjamin Netanyahu has seen a boost in his favorability rating.”
“Netanyahu’s jump in approval is a massive failure for a mainstream media that has red-lined in its attempts to derail Netanyahu’s much-anticipated Tuesday speech.”
“The very same media that champions Obama’s lawless crusades around Congress is now comically furious over a breach of diplomatic protocol that saw House Speaker John Boehner invite Netanyahu to speak without first alerting … a president who his currently writing the laws he wants and violating his Constitutional oath by refusing to enforce those he doesn’t.”
The reason for all the hate coming from the White House? President Obama has continued to go around Congress in working a deal with Iran, that will supposedly prevent them from obtaining nuclear weapons. Although the White House denied in October that it planned to go around Congress on a nuclear arms deal with Iran, it will not dismiss the idea that Obama possesses the authority to unilaterally suspend sanctions without the approval of Congress. The Washington Examiner reported that Senator Bob Corker (R) Tennessee and Senator Bob Menedez (D) New Jersey are pushing a bill that requires Senate approval for a deal with Iran. President Obama has said he will veto the bill, however, the Senate is quickly approaching a veto proof majority.
Interestingly enough, BizPac Review recently wrote about an article written in a newspaper in Saudi Arabia, praising Netanyahu and criticizing President Obama.
“This isn’t like a columnist or a blogger writing in the United States. Saudi Arabia doesn’t have a First Amendment – if opinions like this are making it into the “mainstream” press, it’s because they reflect the views of the government.”
“Israel and Saudi Arabia are mortal enemies, but a columnist at a pro-government newspaper in Saudi Arabia this week praised Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a friend to peace in the Middle East and branded President Obama “one of the worst American presidents” over his negotiations with Iran.”
“The Obama administration does not suffice with condemning Netanyahu’s visit. Obama has announced that he will not meet with Netanyahu on the grounds that he does not meet with state leaders a short while before elections take place in their countries, [though] elections in Israel will take place weeks after the visit!! Likewise, American Vice President Joseph Biden, whose presence at Netanyahu’s speech in Congress is expected by virtue of his constitutional role as Senate president, announced that he would be on a trip abroad [on the day of] Netanyahu’s speech!! U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry also said he would be in Switzerland meeting with the Iranians on the nuclear dossier and therefore would not be able to attend Netanyahu’s speech!!”
“Since Obama is the godfather of the prefabricated revolutions in the Arab world, and since he is the ally of political Islam, [which is] the caring mother of [all] the terrorist organizations, and since he is working to sign an agreement with Iran that will come at the expense of the U.S.’s longtime allies in the Gulf, I am very glad of Netanyahu’s firm stance and [his decision] to speak against the nuclear agreement at the American Congress despite the Obama administration’s anger and fury. I believe that Netanyahu’s conduct will serve our interests, the people of the Gulf, much more than the foolish behavior of one of the worst American presidents. Do you agree with me?”
A recent article in the Wall Street Journal reported,
” 71 percent of voters believe negotiations between the Obama administration and the Iranian regime will not halt the Islamic theocracy’s pursuit of nuclear weapons. Just 24 percent believe it will have an impact on the mullahs’s moves toward the bomb.”
Is President Obama fulfilling the wishes of the people? If he has funded an “anti-Netanyahu” voting machine with American taxpayer dollars against our wishes, then he should be held accountable for the damage that could permanently effect the relationship that has existed between Israel and the United States for decades. If the President decides to go forward with a nuclear deal with Iran without support of the Senate, it will become painfully obvious that he does not listen to the people or follow the rule of law regarding the governance of this Nation!
