Naftali Bennett Demands Obama Apologize For Netanyahu Name Calling

Obama and Netanyahu
In a column that appeared on Tuesday, October 28 – titled, The Crisis In U.S.-Israel Relations Is Officially Here – Jeffrey Goldberg, national correspondent for The Atlantic, wrote:
“The other day I was talking to a senior Obama administration official about the foreign leader who seems to frustrate the White House and the State Department the most. ‘The thing about Bibi is, he’s a chickens**t,’ this official said, referring to the Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, by his nickname.
“This comment is representative of the gloves-off manner in which American and Israeli officials now talk about each other behind closed doors, and is yet another sign that relations between the Obama and Netanyahu governments have moved toward a full-blown crisis,” Goldberg added.
Reacting the same day, Economy Minister Naftali Bennett issued the following statement on Facebook:
“Israel is stronger than all of its defamers.”

Cursing Netanyahu is an Insult to Israelis and Jews

“The Prime Minister of Israel is not a private person,” Bennett continued. “He is the leader of the Jewish State and the entire Jewish people. Cursing the prime minister and calling him names is an insult not just to him but to the millions of Israeli citizens and Jews across the globe.
“The leader of Syria who slaughtered 150,000 people was not awarded the name ‘chickens**t.’ Neither was the leader of Saudi Arabia who stones women and homosexuals or the leader of Iran who murders freedom protestors.
“If what appears in the press is true, then it seems that the current US administration is throwing Israel under the bus.”

Israel Leads Global War on Terror

“Israel is the only democratic state in the Middle East and has been fighting 66 years to survive. Israel is at the forefront of the free world’s fight against the Islamic terror of ISIS, Hezbollah, Hamas and Iran. Instead of attacking Israel and putting it at risk, the world should be strengthening and supporting it.
“I call on the US administration to immediately reject these gross comments,” Bennett concluded.

In his article Goldberg blamed the Israeli leader for the seemingly increasing crisis in Israeli-U.S. relations. According to Goldberg, “the fault for this breakdown in relations can be assigned in good part tothe junior partner in the relationship, Netanyahu, and in particular, to the behavior of his cabinet…. For their part, Obama administration officials express, in the words of one official, a ‘red-hot anger’ at Netanyahu for pursuing settlement policies on the West Bank [Judea and Samaria] and building policies in Jerusalem, that they believe have fatally undermined Secretary of State John Kerry’s peace process.
“Over the years, Obama administration officials have described Netanyahu to me as recalcitrant, myopic, reactionary, obtuse, blustering, pompous, and “Aspergery.” (These are verbatim descriptions; I keep a running list.). But I had not previously heard Netanyahu described as a chickens**t.”
Joel Pollak, senior editor-at-large,, noted that Goldberg “admits that ‘Jews have a moral right to live anywhere they want in Jerusalem,’ and understands that the areas of Jerusalem that have irked Obama are hardly ‘settlements,’ yet he still says Bibi is to blame for building there….
“Nowhere in Goldberg’s article is there any acknowledgment that Gaza rockets, Hamas tunnels, and Fatah/PA incitement are what have made a Palestinian state in the West Bank unthinkable, for the moment, to the vast majority of Israelis. Nor is there any admission that Obama – and Vice-President Joe Biden, and Secretaries of State Hillary Clinton and John Kerry – have inflamed relations by publicly berating Israel on various occasions.”

Netanyahu: ‘I Will Continue to Defend our Country’

President Reuven Rivlin, in Poland on a state visit, told IDF Radio: “Construction is not a provocation. If it is carried out as a provocation and as a payback of some sort for a terror act, it is forbidden. We came to settle in our land, and we simply have to make clear to the world that we are building in places that we shall never abandon.”
Speaking to the Knesset Wednesday morning, Netanyahu said:
“I was personally attacked purely because I defend Israel, and despite all the attacks against me, I will continue to defend our country, I will continue to defend the citizens of Israel.
“I respect and appreciate the deep ties with the United States we’ve had since the establishment of the state,” he added. “We’ve had arguments before,” but there remains a “deep connection between our peoples and our countries.”
“The unrestrained criticism of Israel and its leader attributed to officials in the White House have crossed all lines,” Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein said in his opening remarks to the the Knesset on Wednesday.
Sources in the Prime Minister’s Office reportedly asserted:
“Netanyahu will continue to uphold the security interests of the citizens of Israel and the historical rights of the Jewish people in Jerusalem. No pressure will change that.”

This Is The Way The Democrats Will Win This Election. If They Can't Win It Legally, They Will Do It Illegally Knowing The Republicans Don't Have The Guts To Challenge Them!

Video: Votes for Republicans Switched to Democrats in Illinois

10:01 AM, OCT 29, 2014 • BY MICHAEL WARREN
Two Illinois voters say their attempts to vote early for Republicans on an electronic voting machine were registered as votes for Democrats—and they say have the video evidence to prove it. 
The voters are 18- and 19-year-old Moline residents who asked to remain anonymous. They say they went to their polling station on Monday, October 28, at the Moline Public Library. Both say they were aware of recent news stories that other early voters in their area had experienced difficulties voting onelectronic machines. The complaints have been widespread.
The Republican House candidate for the area, Bobby Schilling, claims 20 supporters have called his campaign to say that their attempts to vote for him were switched to his opponent, Democraticcongresswoman Cheri Bustos. 
"Two nights ago, I took a call from a supporter of mine who said that his mother-in-law had gone to the library to vote and that every time that she went to push my name that it automatically bounced up to my opponents name," Schilling told KWQC, the local NBC affiliate, on October 24. "I thought, well, maybe she mixed up, she's an older gal, but come to find out in the last two days I've taken 17 calls of people saying the exact same thing."
The two Moline voters say they didn’t expect to experience problems. They figured the problem was older people were having difficult with the machines' touchscreens. But both said their attempts to vote for Republicans on several races were switched to select the Democrat. One of the voters said he tried to vote for the Republican candidate in the races for U.S. House and the state senate, and that both his votes were registered as those for the Democratic candidate. The second voter said he had the same problem for those races as well as those for the state house and the Rock Island County clerk race.
“I pressed the top of the box for [Republican state senate candidate] Neil Anderson, and it clicked for [Democratic state senator] Mike Jacobs,” he said. The machines, both voters said, require the use of fingers, and no stylus or other device is provided. 
The voters say they decided to use their cell phones to film their votes after having trouble. They said they wanted to show how easily the machines registered the wrong vote. Watch that video below:
Eventually, both voters were able to vote for the Republican candidates, as they say they preferred. They said the screen appeared to be poorly calibrated, so that while pressing anywhere in the box for a Democrat registered a vote for the Democrat, only pressing the bottom half of the Republican box did so for the Republican. The only way to make the correct vote, they said, was to press the incorrectly checked box to “uncheck” it, then press low in the Republican’s box. The voters say they were able to figure this out without calling over an election judge for help.
In an article in the Quad City Times published Monday morning, the Democratic clerk for Rock Island County pushed back against the criticisms of her office’s handling of early voting.
Kinney's office has been the target of a Republican Party attack that not only is she opening ballots early and counting them but that her voting machines are calibrated in such a way that switches votes from Republican to Democrat.
Rock Island County Circuit Judge Lori Lefstein denied the GOP's emergency injunction on the counting of absentee ballots. 
"There is nothing wrong in this office," Kinney, a Democrat, said afterward.
One of the voters who spoke with me says his attempt to vote for Kinney's Republican opponent was registered as a vote for Kinney. He eventually voted for the Republican.
Jon Schweppe, a spokesman for the Schilling campaign, says he called an official on the Illinois state board of elections on Friday afternoon about the voters’ complaints.

Obama Admin Starts Calling Netanyahu Names Because He Will NOT Do What They Want.

The Obama Administration is quickly moving to marginalize Israel by demeaning  and publicly denouncing the Prime Minister. Usually disagreements with leaders of other countries are not expressed publicly, protocol demands that respect be given to those to whom you might disagree, however, in Israel's case, all normal relations seem to have gone out of the window.

 The following post shows how estranged the leaders of Israel and the US have become. Is this planned and part of a plan?

We think so. It is our belief (and have said it many times on this blog) that the goal of the Obama Administration is to isolate Israel from the rest of the world, cripple it with worldwide sanctions and then call for its demise as a "pariah nation."  In other words, BDS (Boycott, Disinvestment, Sanctions) on steroids!

There already have been two occasions that indicate to us the plan is proceeding as planned. The first was the shut down of air traffic to Ben Gurion.  This short lived effort was an initial "shot across the bow" by the Administration to show that they could and would shut down Israel's economy. Since a large portion of trade moves out of the country by air, this would definitely hurt.

The damage is quantified in the article by  Oxford Economics "Economic Benefits From Air Transport In Israel", in which we read:

 While air accounts for just 0.5% of the tonnage of global trade 
(Chart 3.8), air freight makes up 34.6% of the value of global trade.  
For more on the impact see:

The second occasion was the stoppage in replenishing  the Hellfire missiles and other military supplies that up until the Obama Administration had been transactions between the Israeli and US military. Israel would make  a request and and the US would approve the equipment. They are our ally and why should we not support them.

 Not so with the Obama group. During the Operation Protective Edge, the request for the Hellfire missiles came to the US military and they were ready to be shipped until the Administration heard about it. The re-supply was scrapped and held for a month until the White House approved. Now, any military materiel that is going to Israel must be approved by 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. 

How easy will it be to stop the resupply? What will it take? Simply the President telling his compliant underlings that no more military supplies go to Israel and it will  happen.

The Obama Administration has shown that it can shut down air traffic which dramatically impacted Israel's economy and prevented the re-supply of military materiel. The only issues left for a BDS full fledged attack are a world wide boycott of Israel which would come from the United Nations sanctions. Getting the UN to take this action would be child's play.  They routinely condemn Israel while letting terrible massacres (Darfur, Syria, Iran and ISIS are examples) pass without mention. For that matter Syria and Iran are on the human rights council of the UN, does that make any sense? So having Irasl condemned would be easy work for the Obama crew.  

When the White House calls Netanyahu "chickenshit", that is deplorable action and it tells us that this Administration is in full discredit mode against Israel. We will see the BDS implemented soon and Israel will be made to fight for its life against the entire Middle East (and without US help and support.)  This will happen soon, probably before the end of the Obama term in 2016.

Hopefully, we are wrong and nothing terrible happens. Nothing would make us happier.

US Official: “Bibi is a Chickenshit” Prime Minister

“The one who conceals hatred has lying lips, and whoever utters slander is a fool.” (Proverbs 10:18)
Diplomatic relations between Israel and the US are in a “full-blown crisis” amid growing reports of hostility between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US President Barack Obama, The Atlantic reported on Tuesday.
In an article written by Jeffry Goldberg, a senior Obama administration official explained that the supposed “unbreakable” bond between Israel and the US “is now the worst it’s ever been.”
The official made no qualms about how he and other Obama officials view the policies of the Israeli prime minister. “The thing about Bibi is, he’s a chickenshit,” the official stated.
US officials are supposedly being frustrated by Netanyahu’s “near-pathological desire for career-preservation” and nothing more, the article claimed.
“The good thing about Netanyahu is that he’s scared to launch wars,” the senior official stated. “The bad thing about him is that he won’t do anything to reach an accommodation with the Palestinians or with the Sunni Arab states.”
“The only thing he’s interested in is protecting himself from political defeat. He’s not [Yitzhak] Rabin, he’s not [Ariel] Sharon, he’s certainly no [Menachem] Begin. He’s got no guts,” the official added.
In regards to Iran, the Obama administration views Netanyahu’s threats to launch a preemptive strike against Iran as completely basis. The empty threats are too little, too late, the official explained.
“It’s too late for him to do anything. Two, three years ago, this was a possibility. But ultimately he couldn’t bring himself to pull the trigger,” he said. “It was a combination of our pressure and his own unwillingness to do anything dramatic. Now it’s too late.”
Over the past week, diplomatic rhetoric between the two nations has heated up as the US condemned Netanyahu’s decision to approve the construction of 1,000 new homes in Jewish neighborhoods in East Jerusalem.

State Department spokeswoman Jen Paski said that Israel’s decision to build across the Green Line was “incompatible with their stated desire to live in a peaceful society.”
Netanyahu rejected American and other international criticism. “We have built in Jerusalem, we are building in Jerusalem and we will continue to build in Jerusalem,” Netanyahu said on Tuesday.
“I have heard a claim that our construction in Jewish neighborhoods in Jerusalem makes peace more distant. It is the criticism which is make peace more distant,” he added.
The “breakdown in relations” between Obama and Netanyahu has brought a new era in Israel-US relations. According to Goldberg, Netanyahu has “written off” the Obama administration with the prime minister changing tactics by appealing to Congress and the American people.
US officials have expressed “red-hot anger” at Netanyahu for maintaining policies to build in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria.
Netanyahu, who on Tuesday criticized those who condemn Israeli construction beyond the Green Line as “disconnected from reality,” led Goldberg to say that “the Netanyahu government appears to be disconnected from reality.”
“Jerusalem is on the verge of exploding into a third Palestinian uprising. It is true that Jews have a moral right to live anywhere they want in Jerusalem, their holiest city,” Goldberg continued. “It is also true that a mature government understand that not all rights have to be exercised simultaneously.”
In response to The Atlantic’s report, the Prime Minister’s Office rebuffed the report. Israel Radio reported sources inside the office said that Netanyahu “will continue to stand for Israeli interests, and no pressure will change this.”
Speaking at the Knesset Wednesday afternoon, the prime minster made his first public comments about the report. “I respect our ties with the US,” he said. “I am being attacked because I am defending Israel.”


Gun Haters, Animal Rights Idiots Don't Understand Hunting.

From Right To Bear Blog:

Biggest Moment of This 11-Year-Old’s Life Almost Spoiled by Anti-Hunting Haters

As most hunters know, their sport has become controversial among a large contingent of the American public. Urban dwellers who are several generations removed from the need to hunt their own food, and Liberals who oppose gun ownership have all lined up against those who believe in responsible harvesting and management of game. Gavin Dingman, an 11-year-old crossbow hunter who lives in Michigan, just experienced this personally.
Gavin was on a crossbow hunting trip with his father when he shot a rare trophy, a 12-point albino buck. Jordon Browne, host of the Michigan Out-of-Doors TV hunting show, put a picture of Gavin and the deer on the show’s Facebook page.
The post currently has almost 10,000 “Likes,” but there have also been many hateful comments, Browne said.
There was one comment that someone “should shoot that kid with an arrow,” and others along those lines. There were a lot of ignorant people blaming and scolding the parents for letting their child hunt, or as they put it, “murder” things.
There were also reports blaming Gavin’s father for goading him to shoot the deer, but Gavin says that is not true at all.
My dad was just, “Take a deep breath. Are you sure you can take the shot? If you’re not 100 percent, we don’t want to injure it.”
Browne says he has removed hundreds of extreme negative comments from the page. The show fully supports Gavin, and reminds readers the hunt was “100% legal.”
Like many states, Michigan has adapted its laws to accommodate the increased interest in bow hunting. Michigan has a 77-day separate deer hunting season set aside just for bowhunters. There is also an any-deer archery season in every county in Michigan, and the states permits shooting of fish with a bow and arrow in most lakes and streams. Bow hunters can also hunt from elevated blinds, and are permitted to carry an unstrung bow in an automotive vehicle during hunting season.

After White House Denials, A Memo Shows Up That The Administration IS Considering (Read--Is) Bringing Ebola Patients To US. Lies Continue. Can This Administration Ever Tell The Truth?

Memo: Obama Eyes Bringing Foreign Ebola Patients to US

A State Department memo confirms that the Obama administration is considering allowing non-U.S. citizens with Ebola to come into the country for treatment, Fox News reports.

The internal memo is marked "Sensitive," but unclassified and was written by a State Department official, reporter Mike Emanuel said Tuesday on Fox News Channel's"Special Report." At issue, according to the memo, is American leadership.

The United States should "act as we are asking others to act by admitting certain non-citizens into the country for medical treatment for Ebola virus disease during the Ebola crisis," the memo reads.

The memo recommends the State Department and Department of Homeland Security devise a system to allow medical evacuation for non-citizens as long as they are otherwise eligible for evacuation from the Ebola-affected country and into the United States, Fox News reported.

Earlier Tuesday, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said he was unaware of any plans to bring non-U.S. citizens with Ebola into the country.

Rep. Bob Goodlatte last week sent a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry and HomelandSecurity Secretary Jeh Johnson asking if reports of such a plan were true.

Goodlatte told Fox News Channel's "The Kelly File" Monday night that someone from inside the administration had told him of the plan.

Goodlatte said he has not gotten a response to his letter, and Fox News said requests for a State Department response have gone unanswered.

USA Today on Sunday reported that the Pentagon is developing portable isolation units that can hold up to 12 people. The isolation units would be used on military aircraft.

But Defense Department spokeswoman Jennifer Elzea told USA Today that the isolation units are not intended to be used for the 3,000 troops being deployed to West Africa to help deal with the crisis there, since they won't be dealing directly with Ebola patients.

The isolation units would be used on C-17 or C-130 transport planes, USA Today reported, and would be able to handle a larger number of patients than the current system, in which a private company is able to transport only a single patient at a time.
