Obama refuses to meet with NATO head

One can only wonder at the absurd behavior of Obama. Why in the world would he not meet with these folks? NATO, the last stand when the Russian bear rises again, and he is rising. One gets the feeling is that he really doesn’t want to be bothered. Is it just that simple? Or has he lost his wheels. Here we go:

It is hard for me to believe that the president of the United States has not found the time to meet with the current secretary general of NATO given the magnitude of what this implies, and the responsibilities of his office,” Volker said. President Barack Obama has yet to meet with the new head of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, and won’t see Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg this week, even though he is in Washington for three days.  Stoltenberg’s office requested a meeting with Obama well in advance of the visit, but never heard anything from the White House, two sources close to the NATO chief told me.

The leaders of almost all the other 28 NATO member countries have made time for Stoltenberg since he took over the world’s largest military alliance in October. Stoltenberg, twice the prime minister of Norway, met Monday with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper in Ottawa to discuss the threat of the Islamic State and the crisis in Ukraine, two issues near the top of Obama’s agenda.

Kurt Volker, who served as the U.S. permanent representative to NATO under both President George W. Bush and Obama, said the president broke a long tradition.  “The Bush administration held a firm line that if the NATO secretary general came to town, he would be seen by the president … so as not to diminish his stature or authority,” he told me.

America’s commitment to defend its NATO allies is its biggest treaty obligation, said Volker, adding that European security is at its most perilous moment since the Cold War. Russia has moved troops and weapons into eastern Ukraine, annexed Crimea, placed nuclear-capable missiles in striking distance of NATO allies, flown strategic-bomber mock runs in the North Atlantic, practiced attack approaches on the U.K. and Sweden, and this week threatened to aim nuclear missiles at Denmark’s warships.

Krauthammer takes on fake outrage of Israel spying

For me but not for thee as Obama drones on with his anti Bibi rhetoric. Krauthhammer takes on the issue in his usual good style. Obama spies on Merkel, the Senate Intelligence Committee and probably everyone in between. Here we go:

The left has been all up in a tizzy because of a White House leak to the Wall Street Journal accusing the Israeli government of spying on Americans in order to undermine Obama’s Iran deal by supplying secret info to Congress.

We supposedly found out about Israeli spying when we were spying on them. So, it’s OK when we do it but not when the Jews do it? Obama is just manifesting his intense personal dislike for Israel.

Obama: ‘By hook or by crook I will expand the government’

No surprise really, but still Obama keeps pushing the envelope for the tolerance level of the American people. Apparently, there is no bounds. It’s almost that he delights in pulling our chain. Why else keep harping on his damnable phone and pen. Here we go:

Daily Caller:

President Barack Obama says he’s going to push the limits on presidential power as far as he can go during the last two years of his tenure.

“Where [elected Republicans in Congress] are not willing to work with us, we will do it administratively or we will convene the private sector,” he said in a friendly interview with The Huffington Post.

“By hook or by crook,” he added.

Obama said his big-government push would “make sure that when I leave this office, that the country is more prosperous, more people have opportunity, kids have a better education, we’re more competitive, climate change is being taken more seriously than it was, and we are actually trying to do something about it.”

Obama creates video praising Ayatollah Khamenei

As Relations With Israel Plummet To New Low, Obama Cuts Video To Iranian People Praising Ayatollah Khamenei…  reads the headline. Almost beyond the scope of believability. He trashes our ally and threatens to go to the U.N., disregarding our Congress and sucks up to the very terrorists that kill and maim our men and women in uniform.

President Obama on Thursday encouraged Iranian leaders to take “the best opportunity in decades” to improve ties with the United States and strike an agreement on Iran’s nuclear program.
Obama’s comments came in a message marking the Persian New Year celebration of Nowruz as nuclear talks between the U.S., Iran and other world powers enter a critical stretch.

Mr. Obama alluded only obliquely to the Republican letter, saying that “there are people, in both our countries and beyond, who oppose a diplomatic resolution. My message to you — the people of Iran — is that, together, we have to speak up for the future we seek.” 

“This moment may not come again soon,” he says. “I believe that our nations have a historic opportunity to resolve this issue peacefully — an opportunity we should not miss.”

He quotes the 14th-century poet Hafez, whose work is taught to every Iranian schoolchild, citing him writing “be joyful in spring,” for “many a flower will bloom while you will be in clay.”

Obama fires Man first because of Hamas ties, rehired for bigger job

Yes indeed. We are starting to see the real Obama. Not that many of us have been jumping up and down for years. But now he is getting more bold. Unquestioned up to this point with nothing to lose, he will fill our government with every sort of riffraff. And does anyone still wonder why Bibi wanted to swing by?

First from an earlier post:

Kerry may hire Hamas supporter diplomat for advisory post

Malley has a controversial anti-Israel history that includes chastising the Jewish state while negotiating with Hamas. He also has defended Hezbollah, as well as other violent and illiberal Middle East factions.

Malley’s most prominent misstep came in 2008 when he was fired from his post as an adviser to then-Sen. Obama after he entered into direct negotiations with Hamas.

H/T:Free Beacon

Here we go:

Let’s go back to 2008 when candidate Obama was trying to convince people that he wasn’t anti-American and anti-Israel. The problem was that he was surrounded by people who were both. So a few had to go under the bus. Like Robert Malley.

The Times of London reports that Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., has fired one of his foreign policy advisers — Robert Malley of the International Crisis Group — for meeting with the Palestinian group Hamas, which the U.S. State Department classifies as a terrorist organization.

“He was one of literally hundreds of informal, outside advisors,” Obama spokesman Bill Burton told ABC News, confirming the Times account.

Hundreds. Informal. Outside.

Then Robert Malley, who was meeting with Hamas on behalf of George Soros’ International Crisis Group, became one of the few formal inside advisers.

In February of last year, he became a senior director of the National Security Council. Now the sky is the limit.

Today, National Security Adviser Susan E. Rice announced that Philip Gordon, Special Assistant to the President and White House Coordinator for the Middle East, North Africa and the Gulf Region will be stepping down, and will be succeeded by Robert Malley, currently NSC Senior Director for Iran, Iraq, Syria and the Gulf States.

“There could be no better successor to Phil than Rob Malley, who is already one of my most trusted advisers and ideally placed to provide a seamless transition.  One of our country’s most respected experts on the Middle East, since February 2014 Rob has played a critical role in forming our policy on Iran, Iraq, Syria, and the Gulf.  I look forward to working with him in his new role.”

Hillary Clinton of the FCC’s move: ‘It’s a foot in the door’

Moonbattery brings us these pearls of wisdom from Hillary Clinton regarding the latest FCC move. Makes sense. She has to get in bed with the big boys for more loot for her foundation. And who spent millions to capture the last bastion of our Free Enterprise System?

Soros, Ford Foundations ‘Lavish’ $196 Million to Push Internet Regulations – See more at: Newsbusters

The Ford Foundation, which claims to be the second-largest private foundation in the U.S., and Open Society Foundations, founded by far-left billionaire George Soros, have given more than $196 million to pro-net neutrality groups between 2000 and 2013. 

As Pantsuit would say, “What difference does it make” and finally she admits what we all know is true:

“It’s a foot in the door.”

Shrillary was referring to Obama’s alarming attempts to use the FCC to do to the Internet what ObamaCare did to health insurance, and the EPA is doing to the coal industry.

The remark confirms that as with all federal regulation, its main purpose is to provide leverage so as to inflict further regulation. So long as a single unapproved thought can be expressed on the Internet, the fascistic likes of Obama and Shrillary will not be finished with it. (By the looks of this interview, she isn’t getting anymore adept at campaigning.)

Obama and his Kenyan Muslim Sharia Law support

Six years ago, when few were vetting Obama and his sordid past that never was explored, I was captured with his Kenyan activities. For me, it told us all that we would need to know about this Manchurian candidate. So let us return to the years 2008 to 2012 for a few snippets from my numerous Kenyan posts.

Obama supports Sharia Law and Constitutional change in Kenya  (2010)

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.

Obama and Odinga Campaign in Kenya before Election. (You may want to move up the clip to about 2:30 if you weary of Obama’s preening) He tells the Kenyans they need a more “transparent” government.

Islamic Killer Bomb Blasts Anti-Sharia Political Rally

Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki convened an emergency meeting of the country’s security chiefs yesterday following blasts that killed six people during a political rally against a draft constitution that would  recognize Islamic courts. – Obama, Kenya’s native son, strongly supports the change to Kenya’s constitution.

Prime Minister Raila Odinga said the attack was an “isolated case.” But
the National Council of Churches blamed the attack on the government and supporters of the draft constitution.

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.

Odinga now claims he and Obama are cousins (BBC here.)

Look how beautifully and seamlessly this is playing out for Barack Hussein Obama. A man with little to no domestic experience and NO foreign policy experience swoops in to save the day in battle worn Kenya. His foreign policy resume fecund with the sobriquet “peacemaker”.  His partner in crime, Odinga, the violent, disturbing agitator with a brutal past has signed an agreement to usher sharia (Islamic law) into Kenya

During the 2008 presidential elections, Pamela Geller reported extensively on Obama’s disturbing ties to the violent pro-sharia agitator Raila Odinga. He campaigned for him and is alleged to have supported him financially.

Islamic governments have targeted Kenya as a key element in the spread of Islam in Horn of Africa and ultimately the world. The Kenyan Diaspora including Presidential candidate Sen.Barack Hussein Obama has also played a part. The fall of Kenya into Islamist control would be devastating to anti-terrorist activities in the Horn of Africa, not to mention the potential for expansion of a caliphate. One has to ask, how fast will Kenya go Islamic and apply Shariah law?   (February 2008)

From her January11 post: Obama backed sharia advocate Odinga against American ally Kenya President Mwai Kibaki. He was unequivocal in his support, going so far as bragging to his shills and sycophants in the media (TIME Magazine’s Joe Klein here),

“Obama has had near-daily conversations with the U.S. Ambassador in Kenya or with opposition leader Raila Odinga.

Obama’s bias for Odinga was so blatant that a Kenya government spokesman denounced Obama during his visit as Raila’s“stooge.”

Odinga signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Muslim community of
Kenya. Odinga
and the Muslims document here
(at Atlas in January 2008)

As predicted in 2008, Obama is behind a constitutional change in Kenya in support of sharia law.
