JiBamaHad – Obama’s Israeli Policy –
John Bolton, agree with or not, he tells as he sees it. I agree with Mr. Bolton a lot. If Israel does attack Iran, it will be because Obama’s policies are leaving them with few options for their survival.
After years of failed diplomacy no one will be able to call an attack precipitous.
By JOHN BOLTON
Legions of senior American officials have descended on Jerusalem recently, but the most important of them has been Defense Secretary Robert Gates. His central objective was to dissuade Israel from carrying out military strikes against Iran’s nuclear weapons facilities. Under the guise of counseling “patience,” Mr. Gates again conveyed President Barack Obama’s emphatic thumbs down on military force.
The public outcome of Mr. Gates’s visit appeared polite but inconclusive. Yet Iran’s progress with nuclear weapons and air defenses means Israel’s military option is declining over time. It will have to make a decision soon, and it will be no surprise if Israel strikes by year’s end. Israel’s choice could determine whether Iran obtains nuclear weapons in the foreseeable future.
Mr. Obama’s approach to Tehran has been his “open hand,” yet his gesture has not only been ignored by Iran but deemed irrelevant as the country looks inward to resolve the aftermath of its fraudulent election. The hardliner “winner” of that election, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, was recently forced to fire a deputy who once said something vaguely soothing about Israel. Clearly, negotiations with the White House are not exactly topping the Iranian agenda.
Beyond that, Mr. Obama’s negotiation strategy faces insuperable time pressure. French President Nicolas Sarkozy proclaimed that Iran must re-start negotiations with the West by September’s G-20 summit. But this means little when, with each passing day, Iran’s nuclear and ballistic missile laboratories, production facilities and military bases are all churning. Israel is focused on these facts, not the illusion of “tough” diplomacy. …Continue Reading
ObamaCare – Seniors Lose

Critic: ‘Reflects regime worse than China’s one-child policy’

The proposed Obamacare national health insurance plan would dictate medications, treatments and mental health services, choose for you the coverages you are allowed to have and operate with real-time access to individuals’ bank accounts, according to a new analysis of the hundreds of pages of plans.
And it’s worse, a critic said, than China’s mandatory one-child policy.
“In the same way that the bill pushes elderly or the sick toward euthanasia, it is a pill that would cause economic suicide,” said Mathew Staver, founder of Liberty Counsel. “It’s a euthanasia bill for America.”
Members of Congress have admitted that they have not read the more-than-1,000-page plan, and Staver’s organization is one of the first to go through it and offer an analysis of what it would accomplish.
In the Liberty Counsel analysis, he notes that under Section 163, the government would be allowed to have real-time access to individuals’ finances, including direct access to bank accounts for electronic funds transfers.
Under Section 1308, the analysis finds, the government will dictate marriage and family therapy as well as mental health services, including the definitions of those treatments.
Under Section 1401, a Center for Comparative Effectiveness Research would be set up, creating a bureaucracy through which federal employees could determine whether any treatment is “comparatively effective” for any individual based on the cost, likely success and probably the years left in life. …Continue Reading
The ObamaCzarBizzare –
With every step Obama takes, he seems to be trying to undermine Israel.
Obama Unmasked: 40 Czars later, Obama fails to Name Anti-Semitism envoy (whom he removed 6 months ago)
By their fruits we shall know them, and so we know him.
The Obama administration has created and appointed upwards of 40 czars.
He has instructed the State department to create a new appointment, U.S. Special Representative for Muslim (Ummah) Outreach, who reports directly to the Secretary of State. This was at the urging of the head of the Organization of the Islamic Conference, Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, who, while at the White House, “urged the U.S. to quickly appoint an envoy to the Islamic bloc” — which prompted BHO to create the “new office that is responsible for outreach with Muslims around the world”.
His sent his #2 woman at the White House, Valerie Jarrett, to speak at the un-indicted co-conspirator ISNA’s racist hatefest. Pure hate speech, Islamic antisemitism was promoted, and the Obama administration was there. Imam Warith Deen Umar spoke about his books, Jews for Salaam: The Straight Path to Global Peace, and Judaiology. Umar, the former head of New York prisons’ Muslim chaplain program, repeatedly described Jewish conspiracies to control the world, as he does in this excerpt. Here’s the audio: Download ISNA hate
Obama’s homeland security department named to its official advisory council the head of an Arab American organization whose officials have labeled deadly anti-U.S. jihadists as “heroes” and opposed referring to Hamas as a terrorist organization. This is a continuing trend, as indicated by the appointment of Arif Ali Khan to the DHS — an appointment that is troubling, considering his ties to MPAC.
Obama has, in a stunning act of sponsoring terror, invited the propaganda television station of Hamas, Al-quds TV, to film propaganda here in the United States on the dime of US taxpayer dollars.
Obama has instituted the ‘US Muslim engagement” — the blueprint for our dhimmitude in America.
But what Obama has failed to do is replace the envoy on anti-Semitism whom he removed when he took office six months ago.
Obama sat in Reverend Wright’s pew for 20 years. 20 years and he disingenuously claims that he didn’t hear that devil over the state of the art sound system in that church? He heard every word. And agreed with it. Heartily.
Obama fails to name anti-Semitism envoy hat tip D’Vorah
The Obama administration has failed to name an envoy for monitoring and combating anti-Semitism around the world as mandated by US law since the previous ambassador was relieved of his duties at the start of the president’s term more than six months ago, officials said Thursday. …Continue Reading
Obama Birth Certificate/Eligibility Issue –
TexasDarlin is recommending an article that she thinks is “best birth certificate article to date”. I enjoyed reading the article a lot. I didn’t agree with everything and I didn’t expect to. It is an excellent article that should generate a lively discussion. Go to TexasDarlin to join their discussions. Thanks TexasDarlin for keeping a keen eye out for the gems.

“The birth-certificate controversy is about Obama’s honesty, not where he was born.”
Regular readers of TD Blog know that I don’t usually make a post for the sole purpose of sharing another writer’s article. However, this is an exception because Andrew C. McCarthy has invested in the research and bothered to be factual and thoughtful in his new article, “Suborned in the USA,” in which he presents an analysis of the birth certificate controversy that is reasoned and realistic. I agree with every word he wrote. Here is an excerpt from his conclusion:
The point has little to do with whether Obama was born in Hawaii. I’m quite confident that he was. The issue is: What is the true personal history of the man who has been sold to us based on nothing but his personal history? On that issue, Obama has demonstrated himself to be an unreliable source and, sadly, we can’t trust the media to get to the bottom of it. What’s wrong with saying, to a president who promised unprecedented “transparency”: Give us all the raw data and we’ll figure it out for ourselves?
Please read the entire article and, then, discuss it. This thread is for that purpose, not for any other….Go to TexasDarlin to join their discussion
I’d like to quote another part of the article for your consideration.
WHEN DID INFORMATION SUDDENLY BECOME A BAD THING?
While it is all well and good to belittle the birth-certificate controversy, without it we’d know only what the media and Obama himself would tell us about his multiple citizenships, which is nothing. As noted above, we now know Obama, by operation of British and Kenyan law, was a citizen of Kenya (a status that lapsed in 1982, when he turned 21). That’s something voters would find relevant, especially when Obama’s shocking 2006 conduct in Kenya is considered. But we don’t know about his Kenyan citizenship because the media thought it was newsworthy. We know it only because of the birth-certificate controversy: Pressed to debunk the allegation that Obama was born in Kenya, his embarrassed supporters felt compelled to clarify his Kenyan citizenship.
By contrast, the question whether Obama ever was an Indonesian citizen is still unresolved, as are such related matters as whether the foreign citizenship (if he had it) ever lapsed, and whether he ever held or used an Indonesian passport — for example, during a mysterious trip to Pakistan he took in 1981, after Zia’s coup, when advisories warned Americans against traveling there. By the way, many details about that journey, too, remain unknown. Obama strangely neglected to mention it in his 850 pages of autobiography, even though the 20-year-old’s adventure included a stay at the home of prominent Pakistani politicians.
There may be perfectly benign answers to all of this. But the real question is: Why don’t the media — the watchdog legions who trekked to Sarah Palin’s Alaska hometown to scour for every kernel of gossip, and who were so desperate for Bush dirt that they ran with palpably forged military records — want to dig into Obama’s background?
Who cares that Hawaii’s full state records would doubtless confirm what we already know about Obama’s birthplace? They would also reveal interesting facts about Obama’s life: the delivering doctor, how his parents described themselves, which of them provided the pertinent information, etc. Wasn’t the press once in the business of interesting — and even not-so-interesting — news?
And why would Obama not welcome Hawaii’s release of any record in its possession about the facts and circumstances of his birth? Isn’t that kind of weird? It would, after all, make the whole issue go away and, if there’s nothing there, make those who’ve obsessed over it look like fools. Why should I need any better reason to be curious than Obama’s odd resistance to so obvious a resolution?
There’s speculation out there from the former CIA officer Larry Johnson — who is no right-winger and is convinced the president was born in Hawaii — that the full state records would probably show Obama was adopted by the Indonesian Muslim Lolo Soetoro and became formally known as “Barry Soetoro.” Obama may have wanted that suppressed for a host of reasons: issues about his citizenship, questions about his name (it’s been claimed that Obama represented in his application to the Illinois bar that he had never been known by any name other than Barack Obama), and the undermining of his (false) claim of remoteness from Islam. Is that true? I don’t know and neither do you. …Read Complete Article Here

Dodd and Obama: Corrupt birds of a feather
by Michelle Malkin
Everything you need to know about false Hope and Change can be found in one picture: The image of President Obama embracing embattled Sen. Chris Dodd.
The embattled Democrat is in deep doo-doo over his Countrywide sweetheart home loan deals, corporate bailout cash, and crony associations. New revelations by Countrywide whistle-blower Robert Feinberg confirm what more and more of Sen. Dodd’s constituents in Connecticut are coming to realize: He’s a lying crapweasel. Dodd denied knowledge of the special treatment the sub-prime mortgage company had given him and Senate Budget Committee Chairman Kent Conrad on home loans. (Dodd’s were worth more than $800,000). Feinberg flatly contradicted him in secret testimony on the Hill this week.
Connecticut voters are not smiling about Dodd’s hypocritical bashing of lobbyists on the airwaves while he parties with them behind closed doors. And as they scrimp through the recession, they haven’t forgotten about Dodd’s dozy Irish cottage deal with convicted insider trader Edward Downe, Jr. (who received a Clinton pardon with Dodd’s generous help). Sandra Harris, an unaffiliated voter from West Hartford, told the Hartford Courant: “I’ve lost respect for him…It’s time for a change.” A Quinnipiac poll…Continue Reading
