John Kerry to Senators: ‘Stop listening to Israelis on Iran’

This administration has just sold away the safety of the Middle East and Israel for thirty pieces of silver and some phony promises. This appeasement thing never works out.

United States Secretary of State John Kerry has controversially claimed that American Senators should ‘stop listening to the Israelis’ in respect to Iran’s nuclear program. Kerry made the incendiary remark during a behind-close-doors briefing he gave to the Senate Banking Committee, where he made an impassioned plea to the lawmakers to put a halt to proposed new sanctions on the Islamic Republic.

Some people never learn about appeasement.

Maggie’s Notebook: Obama To Israel:  F@%k You!

For Chamberlain also believed that this was the first step and he could negotiate a lasting peace.

History is repeating itself in spades.

We haven’t become safer by this treaty, but it is only a matter of time before a Regional War will break out.  A war that will become a World War

Obama and his Kenya politics – another war in the making

What with the new terrorist attack in Kenya, one has to reflect on the U.S. role in the region.

Looking back, why is Obama determined to unsettle just about every region in the world?  What are his motivations? He shares few internal concerns for the infiltration of terrorists into our country, but loves his drones. A puzzle isn’t it? For starters, from an earlier post:

Drones Away – more kinetic Actions – here, there, everywhere October 25, 2011

A Somali government official, who spoke on the condition of unanimity, told Press TV that there are secret US bases in Kenya mainly used for flying American pilot less drone bombers.

He also said that there are secret US jails in Kenya where hundreds of young people, captured in Somalia, are being held.

The US has increased the number of its attacks by unmanned surveillance aircraft in Somalia. Many civilians have died as a result.

Washington claims the airstrikes target militants, though most of such attacks have largely resulted in civilian casualties.

Somalia is the sixth country where the US military has engaged in unauthorized aerial bombing campaigns through the use of its remote-controlled aircraft. Press TV Ir

Now with Kenya back in the news with the new onslaught of violence, bet he will be in the situation room with this one. My “older readers” got their fill of my Kenya stories back a couple of years ago. Here is a bit of a refresher on our mixing into Kenya politics.

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden urged Kenyans to embrace constitutional reform during a speech here last week. But prominent politicians and Kenya’s church leaders want the draft defeated because of allowances for abortion and Islamic courts that deal with family matters, issues opposed by conservative U.S. groups.(here)

Our earlier post: Obama supporting Cousin’s radical agenda in Kenya

Most Americans don’t realize that Barack Obama campaigned across Kenya while a US Senator to get his cousin Raila Odinga elected Prime Minister. Just last month he sent Biden over to Kenya to shill for this Terrorist. For more on this Obama supports Sharia Law and Constitutional change in Kenya  Snopes disputes the notion that they are cousins, but states, “even so, it would only be genetic”.

Odinga is a radical Muslim who’s pushing a new constitution on Kenya that requires all Muslims in the country to obey Sharia law. It also forbids any public displays of Christianity. Odinga cut a deal with radical Islamic groups to get it passed and Obama continues to support him behind the scenes with millions of tax payer dollars.

Odinga burned 50 Christians in a Church seeking refuge.

Get this: Odinga’s campaign slogan was “Vote For Change.”

Members of Congress are beginning to question the Obama administration’s full throated support for a radical Islamic constitution in Kenya. Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) is calling for an investigation and says the administration may be violating federal law.

This is really rich. Move the vid up to about 2:45 to hear how he tells Kenyans to have transparency when he was campaigning for Odinga. No need to watch the adoring fans prance about.

Michelle says Barack’s Home country is Kenya – full statement. Talking during the LGBT Delegate (The World as it Should Be), Michelle is talking about HIV testing. Her statement is that she and Barack Hussein Obama tested for HIV, when they took their trip to Kenya and visited his ‘HOME’ country

Muslim Brotherhood official arrested, worked for Clinton Foundation

What is it about this love affair for the Muslim Brotherhood? Just in case anyone thought that Bill Clinton didn’t have his long fingers in the Egypt fiasco, one can forget it. The Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated all levels of our government, and apparently our regime wants the same for other countries as well.

A senior Muslim Brotherhood official who, until recently, had been employed by the William J. Clinton Foundation was arrested in Cairo on Tuesday and charged with inciting violence.

Gehad el-Haddad served as one of the Muslim Brotherhood’s top communications officials until Egyptian security forces seized him as part of a wider crackdown on officials loyal to ousted former President Mohamed Morsi.

Before emerging as a top Brotherhood official and adviser to Morsi, el-Haddad served for five years as a top official at the Clinton Foundation, a nonprofit group founded by former President Bill Clinton.

Just a month after El-Haddad left the Clinton Foundation to work full-time for the Brotherhood, former President Morsi was invited to deliver his first major speech at the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI), the high profile political family’s other nonprofit.

El-Haddad gained a reputation for pushing the Muslim Brotherhood’s Islamist agenda in the foreign press, where he was often quoted defending the Brotherhood’s crackdown on civil liberties in Egypt.

El-Haddad’s employment at the Clinton Foundation overlapped with his official work for the Muslim Brotherhood, which began in Cairo in February 2011 when he assumed control of the Renaissance Project, a Brotherhood-backed economic recovery program

El-Haddad regularly defended the Brotherhood’s authoritarian crackdown on civil society, even running damage control in December 2012 when Morsi supporters attacked women and children.

El-Haddad served as the Clinton Foundation’s city director from August 2007 to August 2012, according to his LinkedIn profile.

Syrian Emergency Task Force dumps disposable O’Bagy

The Syrian Emergency Task Force, a group of Syrians lobbying for American intervention, needed a American front woman with outside credentials. After the Institute for the Study of War dumped Elizabeth O’Bagy and her credibility was shot, the SETF didn’t need her anymore.

It was never about Ms O’Bagy’s credentials or lack thereof. It was about we as Americans being played. Played by McCain – or perhaps his senility got in the way of his judgement, the Obama regime who paid the freight for her “unbiased scientific work”, and most importantly many of the neocons who had to or should have known better than to mix with the Institute for the Study of War which includes funding by the Government as well as military contractors. Who are the Board Directors?

Directors included: Elizabeth Cheney, daughter of Vice President Dick Cheney and founder of the right-wing advocacy group Keep America Safe; William Kristol, editor of the neoconservative flagship magazine the Weekly Standard; Jack Keane, a retired four-star general who coauthored with Frederick Kagan of the American Enterprise Institute “Choosing Victory,” a 2007 study that served as a blueprint for the so-called “surge” in Iraq; Dennis Showalter, a military historian; Hal Hirsch; Bill Roberti; and Kim Kagan.

And who supports this organization”

 “According to ISW’s last annual report,” noted Consortium News in December 2012, now is backed by national security contractors, including major ones like Raytheon, General Dynamics, Northrop Grumman and CACI, as well as lesser-known firms such as DynCorp International, which provides training for Afghan police, and Palantir, a technology company founded with the backing of the CIA’s venture-capital arm, In-Q-Tel. Palantir supplies software to U.S. military intelligence in Afghanistan.”[18]

For the full rant, check out my earlier post: Liz Cheney, Elizabeth O’Bagy, Military contractors- a toxic brew

Now, back to the news of the dumping of Ms O’Bagy:

“The Syrian Emergency Task Force announced officially today that Elizabeth O’Bagy is no longer working with the organization,” the group’s executive director Mouaz Moustafa said Monday. “Although the SETF deeply regrets the poor judgment exercised by Ms. O’Bagy in misstating her credentials, we stand by her research on the realities on the ground in Syria. The mission of the Syrian Emergency Task Force is to educate the American public and policy makers on the Syrian crisis and to provide humanitarian assistance to Syrians in need.”

Mouaz Moustafa is a good deal worse than Elizabeth O’Bagy as documented earlier.

Senator McCain called Moustafa a “patriot”, but it’s not clear which country he’s a patriot of, since it’s not Mouaz Moustafa’s first time around on the regime change bus tour.

Before the Syrian Emergency Task Force, Moustafa was the Executive Director of the Libyan Council of North America, which like the SETF existed to help push regime change. Before that, he mentions working with “rebels” in Egypt. His Twitter account frequently features anti-Israel material, including calls for a Palestinian state with its capital in Jerusalem. On his YouTube account, he “liked” a video featuring Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh, “crying while praying”.

O’Bagy is disposable and proved to be disposable. It’s the SETF that matters.

‘Humanitarian’ Hillary Clinton weighs in on Syrian Morality

How to even opine on the events regarding Syria yesterday. Faster than a speeding bullet. What to even chose. It could have been Susan Rice telling us the truth of the matter. Lurch who really lurched. But to me the real gagger was Hillary Clinton.

Four Americans slaughtered in Benghazi weren’t worth Hillary’s time and energy, but civil war in Syria? She’s not gonna stand for that.

The former secretary of state weighed in this afternoon on possible military strikes against Syria

WH admits we have zero allies for Syria attack

Too bad Candy Crowley wasn’t as concerned about the truth when she moderated the debate between Romney and Obama. There are zero countries that will stick their neck out to support our one man band Syrian war event. Get off your horse Lurch, and go back and enjoy your rowboat. We are tired of being played as fools by fools.

Recently WSJ reported on John Kerry’s claim that the number of countries supporting a U.S. attack on Syria reached “double digits” but Kerry failed to name any.

JihadWatch noted the following:

Liechtenstein? Luxembourg? Andorra? San Marino? Monaco? Seychelles? Tuvalu? Tannu Tuva? No, not even them. Kerry didn’t name them because he doesn’t have them. He is bluffing.

Apparently, McDonough has a similar problem. In a CNN interview with White House Chief of Staff, Dennis McDonough was repeatedly pressed by Candy Crowley to provide examples of countries that will endorse or provide personnel or equipment for a military intervention in Syria. McDonough emphasized other nations condemnations of Syria but no specifics on support for intervention. The key WH strategy seems to be the repeated memo phrase:  ”Holding him [Syria] to account,” and vague references of “support.”

Appearing on CNN on September 8, White House chief of staff Denis McDonough couldn’t provide one example of a country currently offering military support for an intervention in Syria.

Duck and Cover twins McCain and Graham beat the war drums UPDATE

Swell:

Drudge Headlines Update: Boehner supports Obama military action in Syria… Developing…
Cantor jumps aboard…
First ‘rebels’ armed and trained by CIA ‘on way to battlefield’…
Pelosi tells grandson:  We’re at war…

Now our Rino twins are salivating at another war we just might get started and that could end in Armageddon. Now we have to save Obama’s credibility – really? What could go wrong? This is the same administration that told us Benghazi was over the infamous video. Just about everything could go wrong. During the holiday weekend, confined with several liberals in one of those “car rides from hell” listening to NPR, it was enough want to call it quits. Amazingly the Left thinks they have jammed up the GOP and “put it in the GOP’s court.” Saint Obummer some how is going to slide out from under the weight of his failed Middle East policy. Even better yet, the Progressives are war mongering citing “Right to Protect.” The same rhetoric that Samantha Power, Susan Rice and Hillary Clinton have been spouting that has the Middle East ablaze. So now, I am starting to think they really do want a full-fledged war.

From the post:  Anti-Semite Susan Rice rises to NSA and Samantha Power moves to U.N.

 As John Podhoretz explains in the New York Post, the “reason” behind the Libyan military strike is not the traditional justification of “protecting the national interest.” It is a “new” standard called “R2P” or “right to protect.” This concept is being promulgated by the “one-world” order activists at the United Nations, like Samantha Power.

“R2P is an effort to create a new international moral standard to prevent violence against civilians.

In her career as a genocide expert, Power was an indefatigable proponent of R2P, and now on the National Security Council has been “trying to figure out how the administration could implement R2P and what doing so would require of the White House going forward.” Hillary is her ally in this effort, it appears.”

Now, we have McCain and Graham out there setting up the GOP as war mongers once again. And Axelrod?

Axelrod  was in full  gloat:

@davidaxelrod

Big  move by POTUS. Consistent with his principles. Congress is now the dog that  caught the car. Should be a fascinating week!

Consistent  with what “principles,” Dave? The principle that the president stood on when he  unilaterally and without congressional authorization took the country to war in  Libya?

What  Axelrod and many liberals are delighted about is that the GOP – especially in  the House – will now be in a similar position to where Democrats were in early 2002 with Iraq; the  prospect of political damage if they voted against war.

He  don’t know them very well, do he.

Jonathan  Strong at NRO:

GOP  sources say it is highly unlikely leadership will whip support  for the  proposal; such “votes of conscience” are typically left to  members’  discretion.

While  there is still plenty of time for Obama  to make the case for war, lawmakers are still seeking answers to big  questions, chief among them being what a  strike would accomplish.

That’s  true among Democrats as well. One Democratic aide says if the  “strategic  objective is to slap someone’s wrist,” that won’t exactly be   compelling.

Some  liberal commentators have reacted with glee that  Obama’s plan puts the  political onus on Speaker John Boehner. But the  initial reaction by Republican  insiders is that Obama faces far more  risk, since he would look profoundly weak  in defeat.

Our Mad Bomber’s Syrian policy goes astray, but don’t forget Hillary

I have little to add to what our Mad Bomber is about. Talk about a wacko bird. What I do have to add is the fact that Hillary played an equal part in this fiasco of a foreign policy or lack thereof. Let us not let her off the hook. So for the record, I present this video for the record. An interesting ending to the video

Here are the notes from the clip:

Published on Jan 1, 2013

Hillary Clinton, US Secretary of State, has been calling over and over since 2011 for the legitimate president of Syria, Bashar al-Assad, to leave power and to let a bunch of al-Qaeda supporters known as the Syrian National Council (later Syrian National Coalition) replace him. However, the repeated defeats in battles of her “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) and their al-Qaeda Jihadi assistants have caused her much frustration culminating in a blood clot behind her ear. She will be replaced this month by John Kerry.

Muslim Brotherhood devastates Egypt’s Christian Churches, Obama silent

Can you imagine if the headline read. “Christians attacked and destroyed 58 Muslim Mosques?” Yet where is the outrage when we hear that it is exactly the other way around. Nuns being paraded through the streets by the Muslim Brotherhood. Homes and businesses destroyed. Christians killed. Yet nothing is heard here in America from Christian Churches. Little from the Media since it would cause Americans to reflect on Obama’s absurd Egyptian policy. Frick and Frack – McCain and Graham still out there harping that these nasty Bros should be in power. Go over to Maggie’s Notebook and read the list and know that some of these churches were over 1000 years old.

The Latest Tally Of Muslim Brotherhood Destruction Of Churches

The list of 58 recently looted and burned buildings (including convents and schools) has been verified by representatives of the Christian Churches.

Cairo (AsiaNews) – At least 58 Christian churches, schools, institutions, homes and shops have been attacked, looted and torched over the last three days by the Muslim Brotherhood and supporters of Mohamed Morsi, the former Egyptian president who was deposed on 3 July . On August 14 the army has tried to evict the sit-in of the Islamists in Rabaa El Nahda Square and Adaweya. In a wave of devastating violence, over 600 people were killed and thousands injured. But violent attacks were also carried out on Catholic, Orthodox, Evangelical churches as well as the homes and shops of Christians, as we have documented

The representatives of the Christian Churches have drawn up a list which we publish below. The list was handed over to AsiaNews by the Press Office of the Catholic Church in Egypt. List at Maggie’s Notebook

Obama’s CIA Chief Brennan Behind Journalist’s Murder?

I never had much time for John Brennan. His confirmation hearing was a joke with his so-called questioners ill prepared. Another one of Obama’s cronies who has so much love for countries other than our own.  So when this “conspiracy theory” emerged, I didn’t bother to get out the tin foil. First, a bit of history on Brennan, another of our desert loving rascals that got into our government. Then on to a reputable source for the latest question on our man Brennan.

“I did spend time with classmates at the American University in Cairo in the 1970’s. And, time spent with classmates from Egypt, Jordan, Palestine from around the world who taught me that whatever our differences in nationality, or race, or religion, or language, there are certain aspirations that we all share. To get an education. To provide for our family. To practice our faith freely (huh?). To live in peace and security. And in a 25 year career in government, I was privileged to serve in positions across the Middle East… In Saudi Arabia, I saw how our Saudi partners fulfilled their duty as custodians of the two holy mosques at Mecca and Medina. I marveled at the majesty of the Hajj and the devotion of those who fulfilled their duty as Muslims by making that pilgrimage. And, in all my travels the city I have come to love most is al-Quds, Jerusalem where three great faiths come together.”

Now the story:

According to a hacked email from Defense contractor Stratfor that was reported on by San Diego Channel 6’s Kimberly Dvorak, it was former counter terrorism czar and now CIA chief John Brennan—and not Eric Holder’s Department of Justice—who was behind the recently revealed media witch hunt. Per the email, written by none other than Fred Burton, the president of the huge military contractor Stratfor, “Brennan is behind the witch hunts of investigative journalists…”

Brennan, then as now in charge of Obama’s drone assassination program, has targeted American citizens on foreign soil, specifically the murder of Anwar al-Awlaki and his 16-year-old son, Abdulrahman, in Yemen, along with five other Yemeni teenagers.

The question is, did Brennan take the witch hunt of journalists to the next level? That is, did Brennan order the assassination of an American journalist? It’s really not that far of a stretch, as deeming an American citizen an enemy of the state, guilty of violating the Espionage Act—as was done with Fox’s James Rosen—carries the death penalty.

Did the head of the CIA—John Brennan—order the assassination of an American citizen on American soil?

Did John Brennan call for Michael Hastings to be tried under the Espionage Act, and did that prove to be too inconvenient for the head spook? Sources close to Hastings state not only that Hastings was investigating Brennan and his rogue CIA agency, but the NSA as well.
